<h3>Children of Bodom – I Worship Chaos</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Thanks to my dear friend Alexi Laiho for asking me to be on this album! I sing a cover of the Plasmatics "Mistress of Taboo" with Alexi and Wednesday 13- one of my favorite bands and sounds killer in the COB style! Some catchy new tracks from my Finnish friends, their best new album in years in my opinion![/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jm3kDrBTlt8″]

<h3>Leviathan – Scar Sighted</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]I have followed Wrest's music from a very early point, and although this album is quite a departure from the early music that drew me into Leviathan, I find it very captivating. The doomy southern sludge sounds add an interesting complexity.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyZ0RxUVYQE”]

<h3>Yesterday's Saints – Generation of Vipers</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]This band has been well known in the DC area for a while, and this album proves that they deserve to be well known in the metal scene worldwide. Skillful musicianship and great production, carves a niche in the genre resting somewhere between classic and extreme.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_F-lceWCxlw”]

<h3>Battlecross – Rise to Power</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Well played, well written thrash record from in my opinion the hardest working touring band in the business. Give this a listen or catch a gig if you haven't yet- the old thrash influences with a new energy.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIWZsP1Wm40″]

<h3>Tribulation – Children of the Night</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]I very much enjoy the direction this band has taken with this album. The songs are incredibly well written, and I like their fusion of death metal sounds with some very simple and strikingly catchy rock riffs.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNZgqxAxaj4″]

<h3>Drudkh – A Furrow Cut Short</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Drudkh is perhaps my favorite melodic black metal band, and a huge inspiration for my black metal band "A Winter Lost". There are a lot of varied textures in this album, but they consistently create an atmosphere that is both dark and hauntingly powerful.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mScw86GYJBY”]

<h3>Temple of Baal – Mystirium</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]This was my first introduction to Temple of Baal, at a cat from France's recommendation. This album is a complete masterpiece, and I love the sound that this band has crafted. Extremely aggressive, yet artfully played- a nod to the old, while sounding completely unique. Great production and clarity of instrumentation while retaining an underground sound. Quite possibly one of my new favorite black metal bands. I look forward to acquiring some of their other releases.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1W5ecX4yNM”]

[/et_pb_image][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”2_3″][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]<div style="font-size: 200%; float: left; margin:18px 10px;">3.</div>
<h3>Tsjuder – Antiliv</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Another band that I have been following for many years after 2004's gem "Desert Northern Hell." I can't say enough good things about Tsjuder's music, and this album is no exception. Traditional Norwegian Black Metal, with uncompromising intensity.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tiipyZyvYc”]

<h3>Mgla – Exercises in Futility</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]I first discovered this band years ago with their 'Crushing the Holy Trinity" split my friend gave me in 2005. Each record that I managed to procure got better- Presence, Groza, and With Hearts Toward None, I liked more and more. This one is nothing short of perfection, and has definitely secured Mgla a spot as one of my favorite black metal bands of all time.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BqGgqyfLCs”]

<h3>Iron Maiden – Book of Souls</h3>[/et_pb_code][et_pb_code admin_label=”Code”]Iron Maiden transcends being a band and is more like a religion for me, so they really can do no wrong. This album sits right in the middle for me in terms of my preference of their newer albums. A few tracks that I think will stand as classics in their legacy like "If Eternity Should Fail" and "Speed of Light", a few that sort of drag on towards the end- a bit too epic for my taste but not in a "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" sort of way. In the end it is a work of musical brilliance, true to Maiden form.[/et_pb_code][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row admin_label=”Row”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_video admin_label=”Video” src=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-F7A24f6gNc”]
