Not to be confused with the Portland, OR band Witch Mountain, Mountain Witch take on classic 1970s proto-metal in a similar vein as Orchid, Grand Magus, and the like. Fuzzy guitars, solid drumming, and grooves galore. Enjoy.

What a brilliant find today. Ifing, the river in Norse mythology which separates the gods from the land of the giants. A perfect name for this band and they seem surely to get from one side to the other. Ifing’s long player, Against the Wealed, comes out May 6th. The album is available as a download, CD, or limited edition vinyl. If you want vinyl, however, hurry, there are only 3 copies left of 200.

Dutch black metal band brings you their 2014 two song release that covers lots of territory. Black metal, doom, and ambient permeate the songs. Many of their releases are in misspelled German, but command your attention none-the-less.

Russian death/thrashers released their newest opus this past march. Titled A Social Berserker, Tacit Fury combines thrash guitars with death metal vocals for a surprisingly effective attack. Interesting that even though they hail from Russia, pricing is in US dollars. Take that Putin.

German black metallers that play epic, sprawling black metal that actually has some melody in the guitar work. Formed in 2010 in Berlin and playing their first live shows in 2012, the bands been quite proficient with their output, releasing a demo, an EP, two split releases and finally unleashing their first full length in February.

Aside from the poor grammar in the band’s name (Lone Rangers anyone?) The Great Old Ones deliver a track that leaves an impression long after its nine minute plus fades to silence. The French band describes their sound better than I ever could: “Dark and extreme music, ambient and atmospheric sounds.” Enough said.
