Exdestrier – Glorious Barbarism
EP | 07/04/2023 | Independent
Progressive Blackened Sludge
On their debut EP, Scottish trio Exdestrier tell the tale of a war long ago which took place in a fantastic universe ruled by cruel warriors and heavy darkness.

Imperial Demonic – Beneath the Crimson Eclipse
EP | 07/04/2023 | Black Lion Records
(Melodic) Black Metal
Belfast, Northern Ireland
Powered by beats raging like arctic storms and an atmosphere that freezes the sun, Imperial Demonic present their first EP Beneath the Crimson Eclipse. Black Metal in the vein of the pre-Millenium era coins the sound of this five-track release. Fans of Dissection will love this melodic and yet brachial display of ice cold sonic blasphemy.
MalClango – Sparagazzarre
Album | 07/04/2023 | Subsound Records
Mathcore / Post Hardcore
Behind the gorilla masks of the three MalClango members there are brains made for creating intelligent and demanding music. Their tools are a drumkit and two bass guitars, combined they are one band. Rock may be dead, and so may progress, but MalClango are dancing on human society’s grave to their polyrhythmic Post Hardcore, and this is just beautiful.
Raider – Trial by Chaos
Album | 07/04/2023 | Independent
(Melodic) Death Thrash
Waterloo, ON, Canada
By reading the band name Raider, you may assume heavy Thrash Metal in the style of the 1980s, and the band from Ontario will not disappoint you. Half a decade after they were formed, the quartet’s sophomore longplayer stirs up Death and Thrash Metal at high velocity with some (but not too many) melodic ingredients. Headbangers beware, this album is for trained neck muscles only.
SHADE – I can’t sleep / Lost in this World together
Double Single | 07/04/2023 | Golden Robot Records
Indie Rock / Alternative Rock
SHADE are a band that loves capital letters and to combine several generations of rock music. You can hear modern approaches to Rock’n’Roll, Brit Pop, Beat and of course the 1990s in their sound. The way they combined it, the result is a heavy yet melancholic, catchy yet raw sound.
Sometime in February – There goes
Album | 07/04/2023 | Friend Club Records
Progressive Metal / Mathcore
Charlotte, NC, USA
Sometime in February’s first longplayer – not to be confused with their 2021 EP Here goes, contans more than half an hour of intelligent and heavy sounds. Crossing genres from Mathcore over Post Rock to Prog Metal, the trio builds gigantic soundscapes and makes them collapse only seconds afterwards. Although not really catchy, the seven tracks know how to entertain.
