"I had the time of my life at the recent Migration Fest, held in Olympia, Washington. Musically the festival was a stunning success, I mean just check the lineup. It was superbly organized and run. Also Migration Fest simply oozed good atmosphere, more than any festival I can remember; three days of friendship and metal.

What you have here is simply Metal Archives reviews on two of my takeaways from the fest: Dead to a Dying World, who I reconnected with, and Yautja, who I had not heard before. Both played fantastic sets; go check them out live if you get the chance."

"It's always gratifying to see a band progress. I reviewed Gilded Lily's blast of rage just a little over a year ago, and they're already back with a full length that finds them making a huge leap as a band.
Mongrel's Light is a more focused and powerful album in almost every way. The sound is dark and heavy, the production is better, and a clear lyrical theme runs throughout. But don't mistake that change for the band losing any of their original fire or chaos"

"I couldn't have picked a better night than this to pen this review. It's a Monday. I've been miserable all day. Disappointed and frustrated. Yodh, the latest release from Mizmor plays right into those feelings. This gargantuan blackened doom opus to survival (surviving life more than say, being hunted by psychos) comes saturated in frustration, misery, despair and longing."

"Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Panopticon and Obsequiae made sweet, blackened, medieval love and made a baby, then raised that baby on a hefty dose of classic metal? Wonder no more, because that baby is Marsh Dweller. It's not surprising that John Kerr, the primary member and creator of Marsh Dweller, would draw on those influences, given he's drummed in Seidr with Panopticon main man Austin Lunn and worked with Tanner Anderson from Obsequiae."

"Russian Circles is now 10 years into their career, with six full lengths. An instrumental trio with just guitar, bass, drums, and the very occasional guest vocal appearance. So how do they manage to keep their sound so distinctly their own without making the same album over and over again? Is it just pure musical goodness? Yes, I'm going to go with that."

"Bandcamp has grown a lot a since they began in 2008. As a small example of that growth just look at our Metal Labels On Bandcamp page. In 2011 I wrote an article for our older brother, the rowdy, but big-hearted No Clean Singing, called Black Goats and Candlelights: 10 Metal Record Labels on Bandcamp. Back then there was less than 20 labels on the list. Now it's 2016, five years later, and Indie Recordings just became label number 200 to be added to the list!"

Featuring Sacrocurse from México, Temple Nightside from Australia, and Celestial Grave from Finland: "While I tend to enjoy almost all of Iron Bonehead’s releases, this one was both a surprise and a revelation. From the opening seconds of “The Heartbeat’s Drum” to the closing motif of “Burial Ground Trance” these two Fins had me spellbound. Much like Sworn to the Dark era Watain, Celestial Grave inject a keen sense of melody and song craft into their art without sacrificing any of the atmosphere or grit black metal requires."

"It’s been almost two years since Pallbearer’s last full-length, the widely praised Foundations of Burden. For those of us getting impatient to see what the band will serve up next, there’s Fear and Fury, a surprise three-song limited release out this week on Profound Lore. There’s nothing new here: The song “Fear and Fury” is a remastered version of their 2015 Decibel Magazine flexi single, and “Over and Over” and “Love You to Death” are covers by Black Sabbath and Type O Negative, respectively. But just because you’ve heard these songs before doesn’t mean Fear and Fury is a minor release."

"When I praised the debut EP Behind - Beyond to the skies I was super excited for the first full length album to come out. It's here now, and I can't even apply the sentence "Chained to Oblivion was worth the long wait" or the like.

Less than half a year lies between the two releases, yet the musical development Spirit Adrift has made in this time is enormous"

"Religion and politics in black metal aren’t the best topics to discuss with other people, because things can get touchy and extremely hostile. Some can claim that religion has no place in black metal—think of the unblack metal debate that has emerged over the years—but then, they haven’t heard the eeriness of Gregorian chanting and the atmosphere of black metal combined to deliver one of the most mysterious albums to date. Black metal has evolved—and it’s turning the vernacular on its head."

"With two full-length releases and one single under their belt, Jacksonville, Florida’s Hollow Leg have gained a significant following with their heavy-hitting brand of groovy sludge. Originally a guitar-and-drums duo, the band is now a well-honed quartet and a beast live. They were one of my personal highlights of the recent Maryland Doom Fest. On Crown, the band branches out, exploring their bluesy roots in surprising ways and adding a bit of psychedelic drama to their swampy brand of doom."

"After five long years, the wait is over. Hammers of Misfortune, the most singular purveyors of American proggy heavy metal are back with Dead Revolution. As is their wont, they are unsurprisingly sporting another lineup change - this time with an all-new rhythm section, one half of that being Will Carroll of Death Angel fame. A long break, with new members and lots of lived life (and near-death) in-between can only mean one thing; there is no way to even begin to guess what this thing is going to sound like."
