The Mercury Tree – Spidermilk

April 4 // Unsigned

After a bit of a letdown with their last output, microtonal proggers The Mercury Tree are back at full speed with a burst of creativity and energy.


Waste Of Space Orchestra – Syntheosis

April 5 // Svart Records

When two bands like Oranssi Pazuzu and Dark Buddha Rising are teaming up for collaborative album, you can bet that you are in for a wild ride. It’s pretty trippy as well.

Hath – Of Rot And Ruin

April 12 // Willowtip Records

If you want to listen to only one death metal album in 2019, make it this one. Bleak, proggy, dark, heavy.

Bandcamp // Youtube // Review

Numenorean – Adore

April 12 // Season Of Mist

Like I’ve mentioned in earlier episodes, 2019 is shaping up to be a great year for black metal. The fact that Numenorean‘s latest still is one of the best says a lot about its extraordinary quality.

Bandcamp // Youtube // Review

Inter Arma – Sulphur English

April 12 // Relapse Records

I was skeptical when I heard the first single off this album, but damn did the whole record change that impression! Probably one of the most consistently great metal bands on the planet right now. Inter Arma are magnificent.

Bandcamp // Youtube

Delta Sleep – Ghost City Rarities

April 13 // Big Scary Monsters

More Delta Sleep is always good. Delta Sleep with Tricot is even better.

Fantastic little death metal gem for fans of modern, atmospheric stuff like Ulcerate!

Bandcamp // Youtube

Julinko – Néktar

April 15 // Toten Schwan Records | Stoned To Death Records

It’s a real shame that only a few people heard this record. Without a doubt, this is one of the best releases in 2019 so far, packed with great melodies, crushingly heavy moments, and beautiful vocal performances.


Haze Magic – Chronicles

This stuff is weird fantasy stoner rock, and I fucking love it.


Druids – Monument

April 19 // The Company

Fans of Mastodon will love this.

April 26 // Dur Et Doux 

What else is there to say about this band? Listen!

Bandcamp // Youtube // Review

Alfa Mist – Structuralism

Jazz, ambient, black metal. Improv. Oh boy. Their second full-length this year, and equally great as the first.
