Bandcamp Reccomendations – 4th September 2020

with one comment

Here are my pick for this #BandcampFriday

The debut release from Foretoken is a melodic mix of death and black metal. Features Hannes Grossmann on drums. Great signing by Prosthetic Records.

This 5 track live release from Allfather proves that their raucous metal is best experienced live. Includes demos of 2 new tracks.

Another live release. This time from Scottish (post) rock act, Mogwai

32 tracks of doom metal put together by the awesome folks at Doomed and Stoned

50+ minutes of doom/drone from the new project of Ganesh K (Kryptos/Bevar Sea), Megadrone is truly a listening experience.

Another compilation. This one has a stacked line up

New album from Cloudkicker. A blind buy for many.

Now Playing – December 2014 – February 2015

This post has been long delayed. As this is my 100th post on the blog, I wanted to make it a bit special. The past couple of months have been quite hectic at my day job and I have finally got down to writing this.

It’s been 4 years since I have maintained this blog, my longest “job” so far. I have the chance to interview and review quite a few bands from around the world and it’s been great. Here is what I have been listening to in the past 3 months.

Metal

The latest release from Cloudkicker, the project of Ben Sharp is mellower compared to previous EPs. Released soon after the tour with Intronaut, it is safe to say that it has had an influence on “Little Histories“. My favourite track from the EP is “Digital Lightning“.

 

Humiliation play death metal in vein of Bolt Thrower, who are one of my favourite death metal bands. Those who are into metal/ death metal with themes of war will enjoy this album.

 

Ingurgitating Oblivion are back after a decade. Their latest album continues where their previous album ‘Voyage Towards Abhorrence’ left off. Take a listen to the album below and find out why it has been described as “at once hypnotic, terrifying and unpredictable”.

 

Awesome new release from the prolific Australian grindcore act.

 

Clockwork Dilation did not impress me much when I first heard their album in the first half of last year. Listening to it in the past month, it has grown on me. The only downside on the album for me was a filler tracks which could have been left off the album. Overall an impressive debut album.

 

Non – metal

The first single by the progressive rockers from Kochi with their new line up. Sounds like a mix of their previous 2 releases. If this the direction they are taking for their new release, I am looking forward to it.

 

I was surprised to find a post rock band from the tiny state of Kerala. Their first release, a live album serves as a good introduction to the band. My favorite songs are ‘Acid Rain’ and ‘Cloud Rain’. Looking forward to a studio release from the band.

 

Aqua Dominatrix is the electronic project of Akshay, the guitarist of Scribe. The first thing that struck me about the album was how different it sounded compared to the current lot of “electronic” producers from Mumbai. It reminded me of the soundtrack of 80’s Hollywood movies. To know about Aqua Dominatrix, read an article by my good friend Adwait Patil here
