ORIGIN - UNPARALLELED UNIVERSE

Origin - Unparalleled Universe Dice 5

Agonia Records, 30.06.17
Three years ago, give or take just a few days , the Americans in Origin released their sixth full length, Omnipresent. Time is now ripe for a new round of sonic beating with death as result.

Origin plays brutal death metal of the technically competent variety, where supersonic riffing and hyperbeats are accompanied by playful technical details and clever variation.

BLACK MESSIAH - WALLS OF VANAHEIM

Black Messiah - Walls Of Vanaheim Dice 4

Trollzorn, 30.06.17
Throughout 25 years, Black Messiah have gradually developed their pagan metal, now presenting its sixth and most classy album to date.
I haven't heard the German's first album, and the two consecutive releases wasn't all that much to write home about, even though they offered listenable blackened symphonic folk/viking.
With their fourth album, the expression had become more refined, while album number five offered on better compositions.

VINTERSORG - TILL FJÄLLS DEL II

Vintersorg - Till Fjälls del II Dice 5

Napalm Records, 30.06.17
Having left earthly nature in favour of the stars, taking a closer look at the universe through a technical approaches to progressive Sci-Fi related metal, before anew approaching Mother Earth through three of the four elements, Andreas “Vintersorg” Hedlund has now returned to the nature from which he once came and made his entrance. The circle is complete.
Andreas didn't intentionally set forth on creating a sequel, but when natural inspiration led him back to wild nature and rugged terrain under snowy peaks, he simply followed his heart and the call of the grey summits.
