By Night – Sympathy for Tomorrow

So By Night has a new album, seems they also had some though luck with their old label Lifeforce Records, that’s kinda to be expected, the problem with labels is that they tend to be more concerned with their own bottom-line then the bands they represent, like the success of the band is not relevant to the success of the label.

Disease Illusion – Backworld

So Disease Illusion hail from Italy and play a sort of Dark Tranquility/In Flames melodeath, not a bad thing per say, but a pretty popular and filled genre, seems this is a re-invention of sorts, since the band was previously called “The Reapers” playing some Thrash Metal and now they are playing Melodic Death, interesting.

Anachronaeon – The Ethereal Throne

Humm so Anachronaeon, unfortunately never heard of them, it happens! Still its a Swedish duo formed by Patrik Carlsson and Andreas Åkerlind, from the first couple of listens this album a blackish melodic death metal it has a bit a feel of a concept album with tracks flowing pretty well between themselves, also i liked the the cover art, you can check yourself on top, it does look pretty good! That or maybe lately I’ve been way too much around black metal hehehe, anyways here is “The Ethereal Throne”.

Valinor – It is Night

Despite not being major stars in their native country (Poland), VALINOR (no, this is not a Power metal band inspired by Tolkien’s Middle Earth) are steadily rising from the shadows to take their place in the metal scene with a proposal that features elements of symphonic, fantasy and a nice amount of good ideas.

Divine Heresy – Bleed The Fifth

Humm Divine Heresy’s “Bleed The Fifth”, of course i had to talk about Divine Heresy, after i knew that Dino Cazares of Fear Factory fame had a new band and that it was kinda deathmetalish and that it had Tim “The Missile” Yeung on the drums and on the bass Joe Payne from Nile fame (even though he had no part in the making of this album), and some metalcore guy for vocals, well thats a kick ass lineup, but as well we all know sometimes a great team doesn’t play a great game hehehe, so i guess Divine Heresy play above all else Melodic Death Metal, with a lot of touches of Deathcore and Metalcore, sounds good to me… well we will see.

Blinded Colony – Bedtime Prayers

Seems I’m going from A to Z, well anyway here is the “new one” from the Swedish Blinded Colony, hmmm a bit of “Gothenburg” style of music, humm, first of all after a couple of listening although it sounds a bit like a more hardcorish form of Soilwork or In Flames (and lately i haven’t been that impressed with both this bands), well lets just sink our teeth on this one.

Amoral – Decrowning

Why Amoral?, Well because I’ve just talked about Scar Symmetry, and although they have a lot in common they are two very different breeds, both i would call melodic death metal, although in this case Amoral go for a more technical death metal/thrash combo that gives a bit more bite and interest, and downplaying all the way the melodic part, that’s all good, but how good is “Decrowning”
