Prog rockers This is Not an Elephant formed out of the ashes of Munich, Germany’s, Tanertill, another heavy, electro-tinged prog group. With This is Not an Elephant, guitarist/vocalist Andreas Krebs leans more into alternative rock leanings than the heavier influences found in Tantertill; new single “Only” bears resemblance to groups like Audioslave, Karnivool and Tool while retaining […]

On April 17th Helldprod Records will release the new album from Lisbon-based blackened thrashers Martelo Negro. Formed in 2006 under the name Black Hammer, back then a solo endeavor by bassist/vocalist Simão “The Beyonder” Santos, Martelo Negro (‘black hammer’ in Portuguese) has since become a full band. The Beyonder recruited guitarists Thamuz and Melkor in […]

Unnatural Ways‘ new album, The Paranoia Party, is a weird record for weird times. While it wouldn’t be dishonest to classify The Paranoia Party as a noise rock release, you’d be missing out on the electrifying jazz and metal influences present all over the album. Opener “Go Back to Space” sets the mood, morphing from mid-tempo, dissonant […]

When we featured Ultra Silvam in April 2017 on Demo:listen we called the Malmö-based trio’s three song demo a “truly consummate” work. Today we stand by those words now more than ever as Ultra Silvam are poised to unleash The Spearwound Salvation, their debut full length. When we spoke to O.R., guitarist of Ultra Silvam, […]

Philadelphia has spawned many a great rock band (North America’s only monthly heavy-metal magazine) and you can safely add High Reeper to that list with the impending release of Higher Reeper, their second full-length that builds on the groundwork laid on the quintet’s self-titled album. Low ‘n’ slow doom does battle with post-apocalyptic lyrics and the […]

Strangers, the new LP from Bulgarian doom unit Obsidian Sea, finds inspiration in many places. The third album from Obsidian Sea in less than a decade, Strangers dwells in between Sabbathian doom and psychedelic prog, ultimately proving to be a breath of fresh air. Songs like “The Birth of Fear” and “The Play” are driven by […]

Hi! Tell me about your band and what kind of previous experience do you have as musicians? We are a ‘post-grunge’ high energy rock band with a classic drums/singer/bass/guitar setup and we have mixed previous experiences. Before we formed the band we were scattered all over Sweden and played each separately in different smaller bands. […]

Brooklyn trio Skryptor embody the belligerent swagger of noise rock through a progged-out lens, throwing in some other influences from around the spectrum. Oh, and they do it without words. That’s a tall order, but fortunately Skryptor are up to the challenge with debut Luminous Volumes. On songs like “Raga,” streaming below, Skryptor’s sharp, atonal riffage bleeds […]

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a full year since we debuted Goatkraft’s ripping Angel Slaughter EP, but time flies when you’re jamming blazing fast metal and filling your skull with blast beats and bestial cries of ancient vitriol. But whether we’re ready for them or not, the three sadists behind the Norwegian […]
