More Tomb Mold? Yes Please! “Cerulean Salvation” Bite-Size Review

Canada’s own Tomb Mold dropped one of the top 5 releases of 2018 earlier this past summer with their second full-length, Manor of Infinite Forms. Despite being undoubtedly satisfied, the band must’ve decided to feed their freaky following with one more piece of music prior to 2019’s turn. Let’s take a look at this new two-track EP.

Underground Black/Death Invigilators Abysmal Lord and Crurifragium Unite for a Morbid Séance

The black/death subgenre of metal just doesn’t seem to get much love. Well, there are certainly enough groups to vitalize a scene or sorts, but the style tends to go under most people’s radars from what I’ve seen (other than Behemoth’s contributions, of course – especially after their partaking on the Slayer tour). Even though there are some that have been around for a fair bit, most groups who call black/death home tend to start in the underground, and stay in the underground. Luckily for us, underground metal is the best there is.

Hailing from California, Draghkar is one of the state’s many up-and-coming death metal outfits. Their newest release, The Endless Howling Abyss, offers bone-crunching instrumentation while taking an introspective look into the struggles of the human mind.

One-Man Death Metal Act Engulf Releases His Second EP Titled “Gold and Rust”, Another Piece to His Storyline Trilogy

Set around a sentient and malefic being destined to destroy the universe with a rage fueled by prior suffering, this second act within the three-part trilogy further discusses the aforementioned supernatural sci-fi tale. Sounds like a death metal theme to me.

Archangel A.D., One of Texas’ Many Newer Thrash Groups Stirring up the Underground, Recently Released Warband, a Debut EP Which Shows Creative Promise

Warband, an aptly-titled work serving as a soundtrack to mayhem and other blasphemous activities, is a bold primary release for the young group down in The Lone Star State. While Archangel A.D.’s work proved to be a fair attempt at the current thrash revival, I personally feel as if their style would lean better towards a traditional doom outfit, an idea which will be elaborated upon below.
