Earthless streamline their sound for their fourth LP. Black Heaven relies far less on the spacey prog-metal jams that have characterised their previous albums. Instead, four of the six tracks here are vocal-led metal songs in the vein of Black Sabbath. Lead single ‘Gifted By The Wind’ features riffs aplenty and some very soulful singing. A welcome change of pace.
Machine Head’s many years at the helm of what heavy metallic music can achieve puts them in a powerful position, in 2017, to batter us all with a withering wall of guitar brutality. Catharsis, with its unpleasant cover art, is a seventy-five minute slab of modern Machine Head. Available in several editions, some of which come with a DVD of a live show in 2015. On Nuclear Blast.

Blues Pills are a Swedish band who play a soulful brand of rock and blues. Their sound lands somewhere between ‘70s Dutch rock masters Shocking Blue and Beth Ditto’s Gossip. Following success in Europe (No.1 in Germany) with their second album, Lady In Gold, they’ve released Lady In Gold - Live In Paris. This live performance lays out the band’s rock ‘n’ roll credentials for all to see.

Pallbearer benefit from their deep immersion in the many worlds of heavy rock and metal music, as they are able to bring a tangled mass of different stylistic influences to their music. Heartless is big and proggy and with clean vocals, but it also has thick metallish riffs and a little bit of alternative gnarliness going on. New album Heartless is a single CD / double LP release on Nuclear Blast.

Charge the bong and get the brewskis ready. Crobot join the Nuclear Blast family by putting the rock and roll back into hazy, bluesy stoner metal. Working with the Lamb of God and Clutch producer and mixed by the guy that did Led Zeppelin and Nine Inch Nails, christ what do you need? Osbourne’s bat to officially endorse them?
Firm and proper blues-rock from Blues Pills. Singer Elin Larsson’s voice is one for the ages, carrying just the right amount of power to lead the and forth. Lady In Gold, their second album is old-fashioned soulful rock music done really well. Available in a lavish array of formats (including one with a DVD!) on the Nuclear Blast label.
The old-school psychedelic rock produced by Witchcraft is pretty strong for a band originally just formed to cover Pentagram. 15 years in, Nucleus appears on Nuclear Blast (how neat), laden with riffs and wailing 1970’s guitar solos. Singer Magnus Pelander and his band have the sense of drama you want from this stuff too. CD or double LP.

Carcass made their comeback in 2013 with Surgical Steel, a record that more than satisfied the extreme metal faithful. Stacks of thick riffs, blast beats and enraged demon howls. This Complete Edition reissue adds B-sides, Japanese rarities and unheard material. Double LP in a gatefold sleeve, on Nuclear Blast.

A Swedish reincarnation of late sixties psych rock formations, overflowing with raw energy and emotional, high-paced guitar solos. Graveyard is more lively than their name suggests, and their new album Innocence & Decadence showcases their pure power better than ever. And for a price like that you can't afford not to buy it.
American, Swedish, French quartet Blues Pills are a contemporary classic rock band who have managed to achieve a fairly unique and intense rock sound whilst maintaining a solid mainstream following. Driven by a powerhouse rhythm section and otherworldly, melodic guitar solos their sound carries heavy influences from classic rock and soul predecessors such as Janis Joplin and Cream.

Kadaver are a band in deep love with the 1970s, and they aren’t ashamed of that in the slightest. Heavy, Sabbath-inspired classic rock is the order of the day, and this double LP on the admirably named Nuclear Blast label captures this new rendition of an old sound Live in Antwerp. Critique them for nostalgia if you will, but Kadaver, and their crowd, evidently love this stuff sincerely: maybe you will too?
'Surgical Remission' is the new EP from death metal growlers Carcass, supplementing their recent 'Surgical Steel' record -- because sometimes all that evil just overflows and you're left with a surplus. The band claim the EP ties up loose ends, in case you had any questions about 'Surgical Steel' and its metal debauchery.
Machine Drum are probably sitting in a cabin with a bunch of weird staffs urging me to do the right thing right now, so I can safely say their newest record, 'Bloodstone & Diamonds' continues their never-ending thrash metal journeying. With lots of truly \m/ motifs -- "amulets", "evil", all that good stuff -- the record continues their no frills, totally aggressive assault on hearts and minds. And ears.

On the album cover, Germany's Kadavar kind of look like ABBA if the pop group were comprised of three bearded dudes who prefer Scandinavian black metal to hanging out with the dancing queen. And, you know, that translates into the music: they make a swirling tornado of doom metal influenced by the comic book heroes of the genre, Black Sabbath. The appallingly titled Abra Kadavar is collected with Live In Antwerp to show off their old-school chugfests.
Formed in Edinburgh in 1980, The Exploited rode a wave of extreme ennui that imbued many in 1980s Britain. The Massacre is their sixth and most successful album and sees the band introducing elements of thrash metal to their undiluted, visceral punk rock.
Available on limited edition 180g double vinyl LP and limited edition digipak CD.

With the idea to take soul music, combined with blues and rock ‘n’ roll and turn it into a new force of unimaginable energy, intensity and freshness, their blonde archangel and soul saviour Elin Larsson will guide you gently into a new world - the band’s empire of soulful rock. Elin’s powerful lyrics are full of emotions, her jazzy-soulful voice unfolding with outstanding beauty.
All this is realised on the band’s stunning 10 track debut, produced by Don Alsterberg (Graveyard) and packaged in the incredible 60s style artwork of Marijke Koger-Dunham.
Available as a deluxe digipack CD with bonus DVD (‘Live @ Hammer Of Doom 2013’), standard single disc CD, gatefold double vinyl picture disc, gatefold black vinyl 2LP and digital download.

Produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God, Gojira) this record is the result of a three day desert session featuring members of The Dillinger Escape Plan and Soulfly and the same drum machine and four-track recorder used to work on Sepultura’s ‘Chaos A.D.’ Also featuring members of The Mars Volta and Mastodon for extra heavy vibes.
Getting sweaty in the pit with Devil You Know. The Beauty Of Destruction is the full length from this metal super group. Made up of members of contemporary metal royalty, this album will rust in the rain because of it's metallic content. Vocal roars, gatling gun drum outbursts, interweaving guitars and, of course, solos. Out on vinyl double LP from Nuclear Blast.
