1. Melechesh – Emissaries
Hell yeah! Ever from the first riff on you know what you can expect out of this release: another round of extremally talented, furious and highly interesting blackened thrash metal. ‘Melechesh’ are without a doubt the most interesting band in the scene at the moment IMO. After their brilliant first three albums they do not disappoint in any way with “Emissaries”, they just continue on the path they’ve been on since their debut. Especially the guitarwork is quite impressive. Lightning fast, crushing heavy and eastern melodies mixed within this all. The rasp vocals and the great drumming complements this all and results in a milestone in the world of heavy metal. Seeing them live twice in a week was definitely a peak in my life as a metalhead. Everyone, get the full discography of ‘Melechesh’, now!
2. Impaled Nazarene – Pro Patria Finlandia
Ahhh, yet another offering of the splendid ‘Impaled Nazarene’! And boy…
