Hailing from Portland, Oregon is prog death metal band The Odious. The album opens up with Type O Negative-esque introduction of doomy, prog ambience with “Scape.” Vesica Piscis is more technical than just straight across the board progressive death metal. You can hear their unique style really come out on tracks like “Arbiter of Taste” and “Misuse and Misalignment.” I definitely hear some Primus influence on “Repugnant.”Read More
The real Inertia strives to serve the Dark Lord by creating sounds meant to penetrate boundaries, expectations, and your girlfriends’ panties.
But really, they are three dudes who love metal in (almost) all its forms. Beginning in A.D. 2015, Inertia came together out of boredom and frustration with no real goal aside from shredding their own faces and making their ears bleed.
As time goes on, they continue to try and challenge themselves without killing each other or scaring people away. To this day they consider themselves marginally successful at these goals.
The real Inertia is not a Christian band. Hail Satan. #nosuchthingasdarkrock

Progressive music is such a touchy genre nowadays. Either you can do it or you try your damnedest and end up making a hodge podge of technical music with weird time signatures. Well Final Coil are a great example on to do it and not over complicate the overall sound. Coming from across the pond, Final Coil comes to us from Leicester, UK and are set to release their 2nd full length album “The World We Left Behind for Others”. A great mix of progressive and post rock. Very simplistic and relaxing music. Not trying to make you think to hard about the music and give the listener a great proggy sound.Read More

Not gonna lie, I experienced one hell of a “oh my god its them” moment while listening to Cellar Darling’s newest album “The Spell”. As the vocalist belted out some impressive notes I started thinking to myself “wow, she sounds just like the singer from Eluveitie. Even the Hurdy Gurdy” sounds reminds me of her”. And sure enough my ears were correct. Cellar Darling are made up of 3 former long time members of Eluveitie and are on the cusp of releasing their second full length album on Nuclear Blast. It’s 60+ minutes of folksy heavy metal that any metal fan will enjoy. Haunting vocals and the hurdy gurdy. Dare I say more?Read More
