First band I want to cover for this edition is a death metal band from Portugal called Annihilation. Check out their album “Against the Storm”.
I discovered Souldrainer the other day on Youtube. Their song “Heaven’s Gate” from the album of the same name is fantastic. I’m surprised I’ve heard nothing from these guys before.
Ctulu from Germany are another good death metal band that aren’t very well known in North America. Check out the title track from their album Sarkomand:
Like Doom? Check out Witch Mountain and after you’ve watched the video, get their album from Bandcamp as a “name your price download”
Azoic are a young two piece black metal band from Iceland that will end up going far in the genre. Check out their song “Monasterium” from their forthcoming album “Gateways.”
