Only punchlines, no introduction!Crown Larks‘s Blood Dancer is a very fulfilling experimental “art” rock album to listen to! I stumbled upon Akhenaten when I was writing my “Forced Fusion” post, and they’re a pretty cool black metal band with Eastern influences. Anderwelt is an Austrian that combines post-metal, black metal, and hardcore, among other things; Schattenlichter is a pretty solid 4-part album. Infernal Wrath is an experimental tech-death beast, and I’ve fallen in love with Inside of Me, check it out! [Listen to some excerpts of this album on CD Baby]
Outre mesure is a French instrumental jazz fusion prog band, and their album La ligne perdue is a very good album, if a bit too tame for my tastes.The German black metallers Tongue released an okay album with their self-titled: it’s not bad, but too traditional for me. Hellyum is a Czech progressive death metal band with brutal and technical undertones: in short, a great discovery! Finally, indulge in your geek nostalgia with Fixions‘s latest album, where he takes a modern retrowave take on classic video game music.
