Written by Kep Resuscitate – Immortality Complex > Progressive metal > Illinois, US > Released May 3 > Independent/self-release You may have some memory of me writing a month-end roundup entry on a one-person slam project called Orbital Gate last year.

Another Orbital Gate album dropped earlier this year and delivered more of the same: big d ..read more

Written by Kep Underneath – From the Gut of Gaia > Metallic hardcore > Pennsylvania, US > Releasing January 19 > Syrup Moose Records If you ask me, Pittsburgh crew Underneath are already one of the hottest young forces on the metallic hardcore scene. Their debut EP Nothing Here is Held Sacred, which came out in January of last year, completely blew me away (and ended up in my top ten EPs list on twitter), and the two-sided single they put out in June wasn’t anything to sneeze at either. Their visceral, ugly take on the style has already felt notably d ..read more

Written by Kirk Incandesca – Destronomer > Progressive deathcore > Maine, US > Releasing April 21 > Alien Swarm Records It doesn’t take much to see that the world around us is burning. Economies collapsing across the globe, climate crisis after climate crisis, and don’t get me started on the billionaires. What are we to do about it all? What can we do? And if we could fix it all, would we? These are questions to which Incandesca seeks to answer. On their debut full-length, Destronomer, the follow-up to last year’s self-titled EP, the fate of ..read more
