supported by
Matthew Rukgaber

Matthew Rukgaber Progressive Black Metal with tons of awesome riffs. Like Epoch of Unlight, Goatwhore, and Emperor mixed with Mastodon. So it is completely remarkable American metal that should have been on more 2018 best of the year lists. Favorite track: Introvertoid.

Peter Rabbit One of the strongest points of this album is that it's surprisingly accessible without sacrificing leftfield songwriting: you can drink it straight from the bottle, and add further layers of ejoyment as you discover more nuances and complexities in its sound. Favorite track: Upstream And Parallel.
Anthony Cooper

Anthony Cooper Experimental yet accessible; sinister yet alluring; unhinged yet strangely cohesive. This album demands repeated listens, but just like its hapless protagonist you may start to question your sanity as you're drawn deeper and deeper into its clutches. Come join the madness. Favorite track: Panoramic Phantoms.

VEILBURNER from US have accelerated their growth and have presented mutated versions of their infamous black/death metal cacophony. This is complicated, unpredictable and frankly groundbreaking music in this style – no two songs are alike and go off in different directions after conjuring some of the most grotesque and vile music. This is experimental music of the highest level that manages to blend in weird passages, twisted solos and even singing in this intense black/death metal music, something that very few bands have managed to achieve without losing coherency and integrity. These are songs that will test your grasping power as there’s a lot happening at all times. The members have outdone themselves not just musically but also conceptually, creating special masks to bring to life their psychotic vision. This is yet another testament to the prowess and potential this style holds and how it can be elevated to new heights using experimentation while fanning the chaotic elements.
