boy, what a goddamn good melodic death metal album. riff for days, melodies for months and music for years or so... flys a bit under the radar it seems but if you have the chance to get your hands on this, i recommend to pick up astralborne's beautiful debut full length "at eternity's end" right away.

ok, i didn't see that coming. i didn't know end before all the pre-order hype went down at some point earlier this year. i checked them and secured me a copy but it wasn't until it finally arrived and i gave it proper spins, where i realised the greatness of this angry as fuck metallic hardcore babe. go check it out, is my only advice. closed casket activities. 2020.
boy, this tech/prog death metal band from new york left me craving for more with their latest album "four dimensional flesh". thus i needed the debut and predecessor as well. it wasn't too difficult to get a hand on a copy of "the time traveler's dilemma" for a decent price. musically this is on par with "four dimensional...", if not better. unique leader records.

the second installment by back on black in this little cro-mags re-issue series. "near death experience" was the follow-up to "alpha and omega" and was released in 1993 via century media. i just love the cover artwork and musically it is one of my favourite cro-mags record as well. back on black. 2020.
the cro-mags have a new album out this year and i completely missed the boat. at least i have been right on spot for these re-presses of "near death experience" and this one here, "alpha and omega". gatefold sleeve and grey vinyl by back on black. 2020 (originally released by century media in 1992).
