Eumeria – Rebel Mind

I was a fan of Outworld’s release in 2006 so I was looking for that kind of punch on the band’s first debut record titled “Rebel Mind”. Also for those shredders and guitar freaks I’ve heard some good things about the band’s guitar player Reece Fullwood, a master shredder per say. The guy has some freak ability on the strings and some of that can be heard on Eumeria’s new record.

Cypher Seer – Origins

Wow, this is some interesting mess here! The more I listen, the harder it gets for me to say what kind of music these guys are actually trying to play. But before I get to rants-n-analysis – this is the second album by obviously completely unknown New Jersey-based ‘power’ metal band, and I’m gonna treat is a mystery (which it is to me).

Of Wrath And Ruin – Conquering Oblivion

The first band that comes to mind when trying to compare these guys to somebody would probably be DIMMU BORGIR, but there is also a very SYMPHONY X vibe here too. Musically this is progressive metal, but it never seems to go too far off into a tangent and cleverly avoids the “wank music” tag by never sacrificing melody for speed or skill…

Web – Deviance

I hear some doom metal here and there throughout this album, but as a whole it’s more like a slower, brooding version of thrash metal with slight progressive tendencies. The guitars have that really thick lower-end sound and when they mix it up with the deep bass grooves there is plenty of meat in the sound…

Blue Aside – The Orange Tree

THE ORANGE TREE is a five song E.P that is based in the sound of traditional doom metal, but also has a strong affliction to space rock and has a very stoner rock feel throughout. The five songs add up to a total of 35 minutes, which is good value for an E.P and had the band thrown another two tracks on here it could have easily been promoted as a full length release.
