The Depressick

Mexico’s horde The Depressick may not be that well-known, despite some sweet recordings in the past, including some splits and a full length in 2017 (Carcinoma, which was released via China’s Pest Productions). Hugely underestimated was their EP Disposable 1.10, initially independently and unphysically released at the end of 2019’s beautiful springtime.

Voreus

Once in a while (often more than once in a while – aah, life is good…), you just get blown away by a debut release of a (new) act. Well, let me introduce you to German formation Voreus. Okay, this band consists of members already known from bands like Funeral Procession, Abominations, Imperceptum, The Chainsaw Demons or Fiat Nox, but that does not necessarily mean another interesting thing coming up.

Nocturnal Prayer

From the cold, stormy Atlantic shores of Canada, please bid welcome to Nocturnal Prayer, a trio that gathered to spread evil, blasphemy, misanthropy. Three human (I guess) entities, being Murder (all strings), Nausea (drums) and Cancer (chants), joined forces under the blood-dripping flag of Nocturnal Prayer.

Hermann

The story of Hermann starts in 2014, when four musicians joined forces. Amongst them are former or actual members of e.g.

MZ.412

It all started at the end of the Eighties. Henrik Björkk aka Kremator aka Nordvargr decided to start a band that would be an outlet for blasphemous prophecies, yet from a unique sonic spectrum. Maschinenzimmer 412 were born. Under this name, there were two recordings, Macht Durch Stimme and Malfeitor (the latter was released via the (sadly defunct) cult label Cold Meat Industry).

Disembowel

This is my first acquaintance with Disembowel, but that’s not that crazy for this band will come up with their first full length right now. The trio started terrorizing the world of Sonic Sadism in 2012, and in Summer 2014 they did release a first EP independently. That EP, called Act Of Invocation, was re-released in 2017 by Iron Bonehead Productions, apparently, but I’ve seemed to miss it somehow.

Bass Communion

Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson acts under some other synonyms too. One of them is Bass Communion, which is a totally different outlet compared to his Rock-oriented bands or projects like, for example, higher mentioned Porcupine Tree, Storm Corrosion, Blackfield or Incredible Expanding Mindfuck.

Bait

Bait are a German combo that did surprise me quite intensively in early 2014 with their Cursed Among Saints EP. The most revealing element was the ease of combining things: modernism with old school, rhythm with melody, speed with slowness, all kinds of emotions, and the contrastic yet, in this case, quite symbiotic styles: Hardcore and Post-Hardcore, Sludgy Doom and Black Metal. Their success exponentially grew, quite fast, and the band was able to play live all over European soil.
