Soulstorm - Darkness Visible
Label: Metal Blade
For fans of: Fear Factory, Godflesh, Pitchshifter
An extremely dark and cold experience, Darkness Visible is arguably my favourite pick of these. Sounding like what Fear Factory's debut could've been if it had an emphasis in the industrial part, but still with a strong death metal feel to it, Soulstorm could have managed to become a big band in the 1990s. An unsung hero.
Face Down - Mindfield
For fans of: Early Machine Head, Skinlab, Prong
