St. Paul, Minnesot'as True Metal Record Store (RIP as of Dec. 24, 2015)
Less sarcastic news, more choice listening pleasure stolen from god knows where. Mixing old and new for that pomo headslaughter feel. And yes, the featured mainpage photo is of a magazine, not a “clip,” but puns fail me right now.
HELSTAR “Fall of Dominion” from the upcoming This Wicked Nest disc. Oh speed metal! Fuck samples, by the way.
TRIPTYKON “Breathing” from Melana Chasmata. Slow burn succumbs to the slash of the blade before CELTIC FROST’s zombie walks right through everything. With TGF one never knows.
MASSACRE “Shield of the Son” from Back from Beyond. Big shirts on big dudes. Metal blasphemy: this vocalist is better than Kam Lee. Rozzy whammy dives as if there were any doubt. (Speaking of — Relapse is reissuing DEATH’s Leprosy)
Power metal, just released. Holy fuck it’s NOBLE BEAST. From the Twin Cities of all places.
Remember retro-thrash? No, not retro-thrash, I mean retro-thrash. Maybe not, but Scandinavians raped that trend circa 1997 like a Scottish village. Here’s one track because more would just be greedy:
And for your ultra-obscurity of the session, MYSTIC-FORCE’s 1990 album Shipwrecked with the Wicked. If you thought nobody ever stole directly from FATES WARNING Awaken the Guardian, think again comrade. Certainly enjoyable for what it’s worth.
