It’s #BandcampFriday again! Here are my picks for this month

6th album from one of India’s oldest metal acts. Put on that denim and leather, pour a drink and hit play!

https://kryptosindia.bandcamp.com/album/force-of-danger

Stoner rock from Norway with the right amount of fuzz.

New music from the Scottish maniacs that seamlessly blends hardcore and electronica.

2 tracks of drone performed by Mel and Topon from Fuck the facts. Trippy stuff!

Reissue of 2008 release from India technical death metal act. Sounds massive thanks to the remix and remaster.

Bandcamp Recommendations – 5th March 2021 #BandcampFriday

with one comment

First Friday of a new month and it’s Bandcamp Fridays. My picks from February are here

23 tracks covered by Australian heavy metal act Lord in their own style. From Iron Maiden, Judas Priest to even Kylie Minogue and Savage Garden.

Discover the doom metal scene in Russia with over 50 tracks. Looking forward to Part 2.

20 tracks of post-rock from Australia and New Zealand put together by a killer Australian label.

American black metal juggernauts are back with a much darker release.

A viscous mix of extreme metal and avantgarde unlike another I have heard before.

A mix of heavy rock tracks with ballads that showcase versatility of vocalist Sherry Khattak.

Andy Dowling, the bassist for Australia heavy metal act Lord. I had interview Andy for the blog in 2015. The band earlier this month released their first studio album in 6 years, Fallen Idols.

On the Horns Up Podcast, we discuss with Andy – Fallen Idols, the mix-tape nature of the album and unique release strategy that resulted in it finding a place on the ARIA Australian Artist Albums Chart and Australian Independent Music Charts.

Andy recommends bands from Australia that we should listen to and also some handy tips for bands on their social media presence.

Primitiv

with one comment

Indian death/doom metal act Primitiv are a 5 piece band consisting of members of Albatross and Hellwind. The band released their album Immortal and Vile based on tales of early man via Transcending Obscurity Distribution in February 2016.

Primitiv are releasing a live video for the track Taurus today and I premiered it on The Metal Wanderlust. The video shot to mark 5 years of the band captures their bulldozing live act.

Check it out the video and short inteview with vocalist Nitin Rajan on The Metal Wanderlust.
