Sun Worship are a succesful black metal outfit from Berlin… well, when one thinks in underground scales. Their “Elder Giants” album sees a repress on vinyl, this time on white vinyl and with the same fantastic production value that the first press offered. Let’s get to the music, shall we? It’s easy to dismiss Sun

The production value is excellent and the cover art really nice, even though I can’t manage to link it to the lyrics.
Deathwish Inc. are offering the new Code Orange (formerly Code Orange Kids) on YouTube: Code Orange obviously matured during the last year. They’ve released through Deathwish Inc. ever since they finished high school and have been touring extensively. That’s quite a feat in itself, but keep in mind that the band members were around 18/
Sleepwave have released a video for “The Wolf”, a song of their upcoming debut album “Broken Compass”. Former Underoath singer Spencer is one of the tow core band members and shows his impressive abilities as a singer in the video. “Broken Compass” will be released in mid-September.

If you’re into focused, intense live shows combined with excellent black metal, Hexis is your band. I’ve talked with shouter Filip,
Each and everyone of us has a couple of bands of which he only likes their early work. I.e. the first Mayhem album, the early Slayer stuff, or the 70s era of Black Sabbath [not my choices, though]. To me, Naglfar is on top of that list. Their first two albums really kicked ass and
Sunno))) not only excel with experimental music on the verge of pure noise, but also with highly interesting visual design. Their new effort will be a collaboration with singer/ songwriter Scott Walker and features a fascinating artwork. Here’s what the band has to say about “Soused”:

Deafheaven worked harded to reach the status they have nowadays, no doubt about that. One can hardly blame them for the interest they got by mainstream
Opeth have left their metal days behind with “Heritage” and apparently don’t want to change that with their new album “Pale Communion”. In fact, they focus even more on progressive and classic rock.
