Some great stuff this week so let's get started, shall we?
FEMACOFFIN Demo 2013
I heard about these guys earlier this year and loved it so I'm going to take the time to post about it here. Filthy, Crust Punk inspired Death Metal. Really not much more to say. Let your ears do the talking. I'm sure I'll end up grabbing this one. Oh and one of the things that appealed to me before I even heard the music was the band name. If you went to take a trip down the internet rabbit hole, go ahead and Google it.
POSSESSION His Best Deceit
Iron Bonehead never ceases to amaze me with their ability to find these filthy as fuck bands out of the muck of the scene. They never fail. This demo here is one of the most fully realized demo's I've heard in quite some time. I'm pretty sure these guys have only been a band for about a year and they are ready to do a full length, right here, right now. I expect them to rise up the ranks pretty quickly and wouldn't be surprised to find them on year end lists for the demo and hopefully next year with a full length. Lots of this really reminds me of the venerable SARCOFAGO especially the hair on fire drumming. Essential purchase, at least for me.
FUOCO FATUO 2 EP's In One Tape
Italian Doom with Black Metal elements. Need I say more? Think Sabbathian grooves with Black Metalish vocals and the added element of Mortuary Drape style atmosphere at points. Yeah.
BLACK MAGICIAN The Pursuivant
These guys slipped in a full length under my nose last year that I didn't hear until this year and I was floored. They released a 7" recently and here it is. Check out that Hammond Organ. Check out those gritty vocals and great riffs. Ohhh. Black Magician, you are a band after my little heart, aren't you? Just like Possession, I'm expecting big things from these guys in the future.
