Some Bands You Oughta Know About

Prepare to get dunked in ice water as you explore the outer rims of the Metalverse! Which is cold… because if it were a galaxy and these bands were planets, they’d be cold, and possibly not even planets, but Kuiper-belt objects.

Imbroglio

Not big fans of sunlight… or light in general.

Imbroglio come from the frozen industrial wastelands of New Jersey. They sound a bit like a combination of Gaza, Converge, and Pig Destroyer. Scum On Bones even has a tiny bit of Deftones influence in the chorus, so how’s that for diversity?

Ramlord

Up The Punx, d00d

Blackened Stenchviolence from Nampshaw that doesn’t smell too bad. If you like the idea of First Wave Norwegian Black Metal, sombre melodic sections that bring to mind bombed out snowy urban landscapes, and Crust Punk all in a nice pewter cauldron, give ’em a listen, and go see them.

Visions Of Atlantis

Band with a woman in it? Bad photoshop? Gayyyyyyy

Symphonic Power Metal along the lines of Fairyland, but more aquatic where FL is terrestrial. It is indeed something that your average Metalhead would scoff at, but I dig it, so fuck off poonhounds!

Coffins

Utsukishii

Evil Sludge/Death Doom from Japan that sounds like Swallow The Sun started listening to a lot more Winter and had a throat full of blood.

Acid Death

Yeh?
Yeh.

Acid Death taste like kebabs and play Progressive Deathrash with lots’o’different influences including Jazz Fusion, Power Metal, and er… I dunno I’d be making stuff up.

Moonlyght

Yeah, they’re legit in case you were gonna ask.

Progressive Black/Folk/Symphonic/Power Metal band that was broken up for a while, but has reformed recently as a studio-only band. This pleases the Gaga.

Carach Angren

Widen your eyes and scowl, gentlemen. Widen and scowl.

Symphonic Black Metal. They’re good. What more can one say?

Abacinate

The Plunger doing what he does best. Plunging.

Despite the death of their vocalist Jason “Plunger” Sica, these guys have not quit, and are continuing to bring the beef outta New Joisey in a way Waking The Cadaver never will. Balancing Slamming Deathcore, a bit of Thrash, Grind, Black Metal, and even an ounce of traditional Heavy Metal riffing, they’re definitely a great bunch of lads.

OFF!

Guess who’s the old one.

Black Flag had a vocalist before Henry Rollins, but I bet only 12/4 of you knew that. OFF! is working on putting the Rock back in Punk Rock, sounding like they come straight out of the late 70s/early 80s. If you don’t feel like hearing something new, check out Keith Morris’ new band.

I think I might do this again soon, but maybe you can go fuck yerself.
