Cave In – Heavy Pendulum – Progressive Sludge

Heavy Pendulum blends a cosmic or calming vibe with viciousness as it treks over 70 minutes. FIlled to the brim with sludge rhythms, varied vocal styles and grunge riffs, Cave In takes you on a journey that is both hypnotic and fraught with peril.

Eat Your Own Head – Neck-Deep In The Blyth – Grunge

I am not above admitting that I first listened to this album because of the band’s name. Neck-Deep in The Blyth is the debut album from Eat Your Own Head and what a debut it is! An intricate mix of hefty hooks, unpredictable tempos,  vibrant progressive moments and a powerful vocal performance with plenty of groove. Imaginative and inventive, seriously, spin this.

Evergrey – A Heartless Portrait (The Orphean Testament) – Progressive Power Metal

Even 13 albums into their career, Evergrey bring new layers to this latest release. Tapping into a new level of aggression, A Heartless Portrait perfectly merges melancholic melody with heartbreaking emotion. In a genre that is usually marked with lighthearted fun, Evergrey brings the darkness.

Malevolence – Malicious Intent – Hardcore Groove

Malevolence bring it on Malcious Intent with their combination of anthemic hardcore and sludgy, groovy Southern metal. Mosh ready and high-voltage, Malevolence have shown that crushingly heavy can also be accessible to the masses. Wait and watch, this will be a band that brings scores of new fans to the genre as they continue to grow.

Sadistic Ritual – The Enigma, Boundless – Thrash

There is a reason Sadistic Ritual is a Pulse favorite – The Enigma, Boundless is blistering amalgamation of searing riffs, blackened vocals, and all-out aggression that is just malicious and brutal. Blackened thrash at its finest and most ferocious.

Septicflesh – Modern Primitive – Symphonic Death Metal

The heavy symphonic masters in Septicflesh have taken all of the 5 years since their last release to turn out something truly epic. Modern Primative seamlessly blends grand symphonics and brutal death metal in a devastating way. Atmospheric and haunting, this really is a flawless example of what makes this band great.
