TRIBULATION – The Children of the Night

Tribulation – The Children of the Night (2015, Century Media)

Coming from Sweden, the black/death impersonating of progressive rock metal of Tribulation might be the next Ghost B.C. but with greater depth the quartet brings aggressivity and hanger to a genre that seemed to be topped by Katatonia and the likes.

Alambik – Utopie (2015, Label For Rent)

Rising from the country of Portneuf near Quebec City, the four-piece Alambik has recently released their second album Utopie. Working with Jef Fortin of thrash metal band Anonymus, the production has a contemporary sound and a nice feel.

Dodheimsgard – A Umbra Omega (2015, Peaceville Records)

In the early to mid 1990’s a bunch of Norwegian musicians were a part of the rise of the second wave of black metal, one of the most infamous genre in music history. Of this bunch many disappeared after a few years but those who stayed were representing the true spirit of the genre (Mayhem, Emperor, DarkThrone) or they managed to take the visibility and noise to raise to bigger aspirations (Ulver, Arcturus) but few managed to be cult or kvlt and evolve as avant-garde musicians.
