Introducing... Blind Summit, a 4 piece Metal band from Manchester, UK and formed in late 2016. With inspirations ranging from Meshuggah to The Contortionist the band blends clean melodic vocals with rhythmic heavier sections forming a unified agressive wall of sound.

The band's latest release "303" provides an assault on the ears opening with sludgy chugging riffs that sets the blueprint before melodic clean vocals chime in...

As 21st century metal continues to evolve, few are as adaptable to change as Avatar. The Swedish giants have morphed into a multitude of lifeforms over their decade and a half long span. Yes, theatricality has remained the bands ultimate go-to, but as we reach a pivotal turning point for the five piece - their ability to change with the wind has never been more important. 

That wind change facing Avatar is, of course, the trials and tribulations o...

Jesus Wept are one of those bands that can be easily missed. Confused with others and budding beneath the surface of an ever dying American Death Metal scene. Apartheid Redux is their debut album, taking songs from their EP and their single 'Comfortably Dumb' and giving it a whole-ness. Despite their relative freshness, they're putting a lot of stock in these songs.

The defining moments of these albums are in the thundering steady beats in the dru...

American prog-metallers Oceans of Slumber may be a name unknown to many. Often, music as textured and challenging as progressive metal requires a listener to allow themselves to be immersed into a world created by the artist and, as a result, is lost in the tide of more immediate and instantly-rewarding artists.

However, with their fourth and self-titled release, Oceans of Slumber have created an album of majesty and beauty that few artists in alt...

Music comes in waves of trends. Death Metal like all Metal falls victim to these popular ideas. A lot of Metal is complicated by the march forward and looking back constantly. The idea is reigniting the passionate fire whilst finding an original voice. But many bands follow the same path – hence we have trends. Sensory Amusia fall into these ideas with their latest EP being Bereavement.

A well produced release, Sensory Amusia strive for that mix o...

As death metal continues to maintain a strong following, bands like This Is Endless remain an important part of the framework. The sub genre was never built for all conquering accessibility, instead its survival has hinged on a consistent stream of bands that execute the blueprint with aplomb - something the five piece pull off on Formations Of A World Below

With that said though, to their credit, This Is Endless make specific effort t...

The progression of Death Metal from underground heroes of extremity to well produced and clear sounding punishment has left many casualties and a sense of an identity crisis. Many bands look back to the disgustingly brutal atmospheres of yesteryear, of which Bloodbath is the quintessential illustration. Bands looking forward, take many of these aspects, or even other genres as a case in point of their march towards sheer brutality. Orbit Culture...

Your inability to nail down exactly where Swedish five piece Avatar sit on the metal spectrum has, somewhat oddly, always worked in their favour. The Swedes chameleon like act has seen them fleet from tongue in cheek, performance lead escapades on the likes of 2012's Black Waltz to more technical, progressive ventures with Feathers & Flesh [2016]. Though often unpredictable in their output - the quintets ace up their sleeve has often been th...
