Windhand
Eternal Return

Virginia rockers Windhand release their fourth LP via Relapse. It’s not often that you hear groups attempt to blend grunge, metal and psych-rock, but Windhand give it a good go on ...view item »

Pig Destroyer
Head Cage

Sixth album from the highly lethal Pig Destroyer. On Head Cage enact their brand of grindcore in a incredibly precise and hypnotic fashion. As a unit they are absolutely undefeated. Lyricist JR Hayes takes out his frustration on the darker aspects of our world, but I'm not sure wh...view item »

Death
Human

Death’s 1994 release pushes further into progressive territory, drafting in Sadus bassist Steve DiGiorgio and members of fusion metallers Cynic. While this direction produced the instrumental Cosmic Sea, the album might be the band’s most accessible, with tracks like Suicide Machine ...view item »

Death
Spiritual Healing

Each Death album represents a progressive advance in the genre that shared the band’s name. Here Chuck Schuldiner and co. focus on technical and compositional complexity rather than bludgeoning brutality, aided by the liquid leads of Wunderkind James Murphy (no, not the LCD Soundsy...view item »

Obituary
Obituary

This veteran Florida institution are sometimes seen as death metal’s answer to AC/DC - reliable purveyors of their simplistic style onstage but somewhat burdened by having perfected their art on their first few albums. The self-tilting of this 2017 release seems pointed, and luckily it’s easily the most worthwhile pr...view item »

Nothing
Dance On The Blacktop

Third album from New York shoegazers Nothing. Built on a hardcore foundation, the band have a bit more bite than you'd usually expect from the genre. Dance On The Blacktop celebrates the band's love for 90s anglophone guitar music so who better to produce it then John Agnello who's worked with&nbs...view item »

Primitive Man / Unearthly Trance
Split

If there's one thing I know about metal bands it's that they love a collaboration. Okay, that probably wouldn't be the first thing I'd say I know about them but it's up there. United States doom heavyweights Primitive Man and Unearthly Trance make good on this tradition in the f...view item »

YOB
Clearing The Path To Ascend

It sounds a lot like a yogurt, but YOB is actually the name for a doom metal outfit formed by hardcore drummer turned slow guitar fiend Mike Scheidt. for YOB, he enlisted Travis Foster and Aaron Rieseberg, who help fill out the band's aggressive but snail-paced rhythm section. 'Clearing the Path to Ascend' is their seventh record in twelve years...view item »

ASG
Survive Sunrise

If you like Jane's Addiction, you're going to love North Carolina rockers ASG. 'Survive Sunrise', their first album in five years, expands on their trademark blend of southern-fried alt-rock and earworm hooks, weaving together soaring melody and summery riffs to electrifying effect. An infectious record, by an hard-rocking band....view item »

YOB
Our Raw Heart

Innovative and immense, YOB like to release long, thrashing sprawls, disseminating doom with zero compromise. Our Raw Heart speaks plain of the near-death experience of frontman Mike Schiedt, who praise the stars is still with us, bleeding the metal blood. Over seven very good tracks they play seventy-five min...view item »

Mastodon
Remission

Mastodon are a band driven by quite a few unique elements. The musicianship on here is very impressive, better than most bands in the pot. The drumming is probably some of the best, including the guitars which go great with it. Also, the band tends to enjoy theme based songs and albums, another thing that adds to their artsy feel. Also, emo fans...view item »

Wrong
Feel Great

The second Wrong LP to get the Relapse seal of approval seems to have been titled in jest. Feel Great consists of music you wouldn’t usually associate with feeling great. The Miami group’s abrasive noise-metal is the sort of stuff you’d use to exorcise demons or purge bad spirits. It&r...view item »

Baroness
Red Album

‘Red Album’ provides an escape from your usual everyday metal, and takes the genre in a new direction. Chugging yet progressive and sludgy yet soft, ‘Red Album’ is a fantastic debut, and has the perfect touch of sludge, progressive, and post metal elements into each of its eleven tracks. Their albums since then have taken...view item »

Iron Reagan / Gatecreeper
Split

An unholy split on the legendary Relapse label, smashing together death, grind and thrash under the excellent guidance of equally legendary producer Kurt Ballou (of Coverge). Iron Reagan fire themselves down a punk and thrash spiked highway, whilst Gatekeeper push it slower, and...view item »

Black Salvation
Uncertainty Is Bliss

Black Salvation are a German psych/hard rock band formed from the ashes of In Solitude. Uncertainty Is Bliss uses the full depth of psychedelia, doom, blues and hard rock, together with mystical narratives to transport the listener to somewhere else entirely. A bewitching debut. LP and CD on Relapse....view item »

Windhand & Satan's Satyrs
Split

Big stonery acid metal chug… twice! This split release pairs tracks by Windhand and Satan’s Satyrs, both experts in the art of pushing distorted guitar signals through big juicy amps. Windhand are a bit more doomy, and Satan’s Satyrs are a bit more punkish, bu...view item »

Miracle
The Strife Of Love In A Dream

Here we are with more sci-fi synth heavy beat work, though this time pitting arpeggiated synths against distant chants and odd ritualistic darkness. This collaboration between Steve Moore and Daniel O'Sullivan also has ties to metallic genres, and so finds itself quite at home on the legendary Relapse Records....view item »

Myrkur
Mareridt

Mareridt is the title of the new, hotly anticipated second album from Danish multi-instrumentalist and composer MYRKUR. Richly gothic folk and feminine Metal merge on an album whose title translates back as 'Nightmare'. It's a sound that is in fact equal parts dreamlike, horrific and mysterious. Vinyl LP on Relapse....view item »

Neurosis
The Eye of Every Storm

While it can take some getting used to for fans of Neurosis's heavier material, The Eye of Every Storm is worth the effort. These guys occupy their own little niche in the music world, composing multifaceted epics with an admirable disregard for what everyone else is doing. Neurosis's knack for jarring dynamics is still abundantly evident in "I ...view item »

Agoraphobic Nosebleed
Altered States of America

Agoraphobic Nosebleed are a premium grindcore band, no mistake about it. Their 2003 third album Altered States Of America is just over 20 minutes long, but contains a glorious 100 tracks! Lovely stuff. Initially released only as a 3” CD, this Relapse reissue puts these short sharp tracks on (baby pink coloured) vi...view item »

Mastodon
Leviathan

Hey, I admit it. I'm not the biggest Mastadon fan out there. I enjoy their music. I think they've got a manic man on the drums and their guitarists are on speed. The main problem is the vocalist, who has a very soft, in the background, weak delivery, his voice just doesn't quite fit the music. But yes Mastodon are a decent band, but groundb...view item »

Death (metal band)
Spiritual Healing

Death metal-defining band Death really did have a name that worked very well for a death metal band. Still considered hugely influential on the heavy metal scene, this is Death's third album. It was orignally unleashed back in 1990 then regurgitated back up like a Satanic hairball in 2012. Available on vinyl with an ace sleeve by artist Ed Repka...view item »

High On Fire
Blessed Black Wings

This is the third HOF album and there is definitely a progression - "Art of Self Defense" was very raw, dirty sounding, "Surrounded By Thieves" was slightly more polished, but still loud and hard as hell, and now with BBW, they've gotten even more cleaned up. Not to say that this is a "clean" album in any sense, but the sound is a lot less "mudd...view item »

YOB
The Great Cessation

Following their 2005 split, the Oregon doom trio reconvened to unleash their fifth album in 2009. It’s a particularly fine example of Mike Scheidt’s expertise in crafting crushing extended riff-fests, tempered with nuanced and spacey quieter passages. Both double LP an...view item »

Steve Moore
Mayhem (Official Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Mayhem (Official Motion Picture Soundtrack) is by Steve Moore from Pennsylvanian synthwave duo Zombi. Mayhem is Steve Moore’s 5th soundtrack. His ability to lure the listener to the edge of their seat, increasing the fear within, as he builds the tension with his analogue synth sounds has ...view item »

Death
Individual Thought Patterns

You can’t cheat death, but you can reissue it - as Relapse have seen fit to do. DEATH’s fifth release, first unleashed in 1993, is clearly landmark death metal. By today’s standards, the album contains both rather tame and dated (rockin’ hair metal solos, actually intelligible vocals) and legitimately cha...view item »

The Obsessed
The Obsessed

Doom metal doesn’t get much truer or more essential than the debut from the legendary Maryland trio. Though recorded in 1985, the album wasn’t released until 1990, after frontman Wino had left Saint Vitus and decided to revive his former band. Whereas Vitus were defined by Dave Chandler’s ultra...view item »

Iron Monkey
9-13

Iron Monkey were, and continue to be a pillar of the stoner/sludge genre. After releasing two albums on Earache they called it a day in 1999. Now returning 18 years later with 9-13 as a three piece, and whilst Johnny Morrow is no longer with us they reclaim their crown with their inimitable nihilistic g...view item »

Haemorrhage
We Are The Gore

Spanish gore-grind band Haemorrhage bring their seventh full length album, and their first in 6 years. These guys have quite a unique take on the genre, mixing the pig like guttural growls and blistering speed with groovy verses and squealing guitar solos. Fe...view item »

Primitive Man
Caustic

Colorado based three piece Primitive Man make their move over to Relapse Records for their third full length record. To say this is pummelling is somewhat of an understatement. It is brutally noisy and (suitably) caustic doom. Nihilistic to the hilt, with no ...view item »

Agoraphobic Nosebleed
Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope

Agoraphobic Nosebleed are a premium grindcore band, no mistake about it. Their 2002 second record Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope (a memorable title and no mistake) flares through almost 40 tracks in 33 minutes, so you know that it’ll be proper grind. Baby blue coloured vinyl reissue on Relapse....view item »

Neurosis
A Sun That Never Sets

If you like Tool chances are you'll like Neurosis. Not to say Neurosis sounds like Tool, they don't, but they definitely have a sound that like Tool could be described as psychedelic tinged metal. Incredebly long songs, mellow vocals, screamed vocals, sound effects, a wide variety of instruments are just some of the things that you'll hear on A ...view item »

Usnea
Portals Into Futility

Portals Into Futility is the third LP from Portland's doom-er four-piece USNEA. These guys are into their sci-fi in a big way but know full well the horrendous meeting-point with modern futile reality. 5 songs. 56 minutes of well-crafted and supremely soul-destroying doom-sludge. The guys dip into dissonance, varie...view item »

Ex Eye
Ex Eye

Hey, cool idea, just throwing it out there -- how about a metal band with Colin Stetson's sax and Greg Fox on drums? Sounds wacky, let's do it. The definitely cacophonous Ex Eye are an instrumental quartet dual wielding it...view item »

Baroness
The Blue Record

Baroness's sound is rather difficult to pigeonhole at times. At one point their sound isn't too far away from early Mastodon, and at other points, they sound like Thin Lizzy on steroids. 2009's sophomore effort Blue Record saw them move further away from those Mastodon comparisons and expanded their landscapes and thus were able to forge their o...view item »

Arcadea
Arcadea

Pals of metal get together and try a shred. Sounds like the stuff of our teens, but here it's actually the work of veterans Brann Dailor (from riff behemoths Mastodon), Core Adams (outta Zruda) and Raheem Amlani (via Withered and Scarab). A f...view item »

Death
Scream Bloody Gore

Scream Bloody Gore is, of course, exactly what it says on its blood-splattered 1987-released tin; hideously dark riffs alongside off-the-handle screeches. The aptly-named Death may appear cliche in the 21st century, but in their day the group sat amongst the true pioneers of their ear-scrapin...view item »

Agoraphobic Nosebleed
Arc

Brand new EP from Agoraphobic Nosebleed, extreme metal / grindcore veterans. I wouldn’t say they’ve relaxed over time, as these are still ferocious, emotionally-desolate tracks. But the songs / minutes ratio is down to 3 / 25, as opposed to 100 / 21 a decade ago. Arc is released on Relapse....view item »

Ecstatic Vision
Raw Rock Fury

The clue is in the name. Raw Rock Fury is the second album from Philadelphian heavy primal psych outfit Ecstatic Vision. A no guns no glory affair, where psychedlic freakouts are king and only matched with raw rock and roll energy. (You'll) Get it if you’re into Hawkwind, Monster Magnet...view item »

Necrophagist
Epitaph

Originally released in 2004, Necrophagist’s Epitaph threw a death punch to progressive death metal, and altered it for good, setting the bar incredibly high. If you like your kick drums as fast and triggered as they can possibly be and guitars thrashing your face off, then this is your prometheus. FFO Cann...view item »

Unearthly Trance
Stalking the Ghost

Unearthly Trance have been stewing in their own dark juices for seven long years, but now these doom-laden New Yorkers are back in action with new album Stalking The Ghost. There’s no messing around here, just treacle-thick sludge riffs and guttural howls, delivered like a noisy thud to the gut. Stalking The G...view item »

King Woman
Created In The Image Of Suffering

Zombi
Shape Shift

A four year hiatus followed Zombi’s last album, Escape Velocity, which their fans hold dear to their hearts.

Steve Moore
The Mind's Eye - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Steve Moore has history in Zombi, meaning that he’s demonstrated his talent for soundtracking spooooooky horror movies in the past. Here he applies his synth skills to The Mind’s Eye, weaving uneasy ambient passages and bombastic themes like it ain’t no thing. Plenty of tense dramatic ...view item »

Dillinger Escape Plan
Under The Running Board

Red Fang
Only Ghosts

Grab your favourite 24 pack of brewskis and get this thunder on. Hard rocking riff-tacular that reminds you to not take yourself too seriously. Catchy as Queens Of The Stone Age, riffs of The Sword, and sometimes as hard hitting as Baroness. But mainly head nodding goodness. And beards, and beer...view item »

True Widow
Avvolgere

Emotive and kindly metal tunes from True Widow, whose democratic sound gives a look into the wizened guitar tone of Earth, the slowcore patience and swell harmonies of acts like Low and the riffology of some of yer louder shoegaze favourites. Avvolgere come...view item »

The Album Leaf
Between Waves

It’s been over ten years since I first heard In a Safe Place, The Album Leaf’s sophomore album. It wasn’t hard to lose track of Jimmy LaValle’s instrumental ambient post-rock project, as he hasn’t treated us to a full length album since 2010. But now he’s back with ...view item »

Horseback
Dead Ringers

Wanderings through dark experimental territory from Horseback here, the solo project of Jenks Miller. The man has range: Dead Ringers morphs from anxious beat-driven songs to thick drones to krautrock / metal explosions. Richly atmospheric material, with an impact just as strong as that creepy sleeve ar...view item »

Inter Arma
Paradise Gallows

The title Paradise Gallows is a very good one, suggesting that you are doomed, to a brutal old-fashioned death, but also that you long for execution. Perfect tone-setting for the bleak sounds of Inter Arma. The crushing extreme metal climaxes of this album are so inevitable that the band are in no hurry to get to them, ...view item »

Pig Destroyer
Phantom Limb

Phantom Destroyer is the fourth album of Pig Destroyer, initially released in 2007.

Cough
Still They Pray

Nothing
Tired Of Tomorrow

Tired Of Tomorrow is the second album by Philadelphia’s nihilistic shoegazers Nothing. It’s the follow up to their critically acclaimed debut album Guilty of Everything.

Here's the second Zombi reissue of the week. This one is 2006's 'Surface To Air' on grey vinyl.

There are five atmospheric instrumentals on this album which elaborate o...view item »

Graves At Sea
The Curse That Is

Take industrial drones, Black Sabbath-inspired riffing and super sludgy production and you get The Curse That Is, the debut from Graves At Sea.

Despite arguably coming from entirely different disciplines -- the band comprises ex-members of Tortoise and Wolves In The Throne Room, to name just two -- Anatomy of Habit marry the heavy but introspective build-ups of post-metal with the dissonant refusals of noise rock. It's a different venture all round, but 'Ciphers + Axioms' dives right in...view item »

Broughton's Rules
Anechoic Horizon

A post-rock band with a bit of the Don Caballero in them (literally and figuratively), Broughton's Rules are ready to unleash their second record of emotive guitar signalling and climactic skyscraping. 'Anechoic Horizon' is a purely instrumental work that evokes the genre's blank and beautiful heydays. Post-rock, I want to believe....view item »

Atriarch
An Unending Pathway

Having won the Norman Records award for Metal Band With Clearest Name Font, Atriarch go on to make another record that combines a love of abstracts: they bring together death metal growls, the oscillating sounds of black metal (if it were produced pretty damn well), as well as punk rock and doom. 'An Unending Pathway' manages to give each genre ...view item »

Inter Arma
The Cavern

With 'Sky Burial', Inter Arma chose two aggressively imposed types of heavy music -- sludge and black metal, respectively -- and put them together them like they were twins. On 'The Cavern', though, they make something singular even for them, a forty minute composition in just one song, making for a hard, long metal slog that takes after Om, Sle...view item »

Mass & Volume

Pig Destroyer are staying busy right now: along with their goregrind side-project Agoraphobic Nosebleed reuniting to perform their first real live shows ever, they're releasing 'Mass & Volume', another one of their left-field EPs that does away with the grindcore for slow, sludgy innovations. Similar to 'Natasha', this EP is Pig Destroyer st...view item »

Zombi
Spirit Animal

Here’s the latest of Relapse’s beautifully put together Zombi vinyl reissues - a lush double LP of ‘Spirit Animal’ on fancy red vinyl. I’m sure you know this Pittsburgh duo’s modus operandi by now. This is horror soundtrack worship of the highest calibre, heavy on the synths but also showing no fear of ...view item »

Windhand
Soma

Windhand are the oppressive force that drew you to explore the darkest corner of metal music. Soma is the ultimate album to reflect upon one's self and journey while under the spell of Dorthia Cottrell's bewitching vocals, Ascechiah Bogdan and Garrett Morris's trance inducing riff work, Parker Chandler's mind shattering bass grooves and Ryan Wol...view item »
