Stunning debut by Sinister from the Netherlands. It's just one of those early death metal albums that I myself find the most enjoyment out of. It's the type of death metal that is played at high tempo and is just riff after riff of crushing guitar madness. Overall this cult classic deserves a spot on your shelf (LP, Nuclear Blast 1992).
Second album by Ophthalamia from Sweden "Via Dolorosa". Labeled by many as "black metal" but this is a misleading description musically. It's midpaced doomdeath with some black metal influences imho. Overall I really wouldn't say this band is similar to any other band I can think of at the moment but it is a very original release. Ground breaking may be going too far but original and creative definitely. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in the Swedish metal scene of the 90s and who his in search of something very different. This is the recent vinyl reissue of the original CD only release from 1995 (2LP, Peaceville 2017).
The Speckmann Project is not a real band. It's just a re-recording of Master's first album which was not approved by the label Nuclear Blast. Reportly this album was only released due to financial obligations of Paul Speckmann to Nuclear Blast. Overall great death thrash metal - one of his better efforts (LP, Nuclear Blast 1991).
3rd album by the most important doom rock act during the 90s until today. It's called "Dopethrone" (2LP, Rise Above 2000).
Fourth album by Rotor from Berlin. Rotor was one of the first stoner groups playing instrumental tracks only. Gray grooving stuff (LP, Elektrohasch 2010).
I've had this for a while now and it's growing on me slowly, but surely...
Hissing - Permanent Destitution LP
The first song I heard off of this album was the gloomy and churning 'Eulogy in Squalor' and I was quick to place an order of 'Permanent Destitution' via Profound Lore after hearing it.
But I've been chewing at it quite a bit. It just hasn't fully captured my attention for the entire duration. But I'm starting to come around, so maybe it's simply a grower.
Still, though... my favorite new-ish Death Metal band on Profound Lore in 2018 has definitely been Infernal Coil. Hissing could use some of their relentlessness sometimes, but of course they got their own thing going.
Time for some death metal tunes:
