I recommend the Deathrite album Nightmares Reign. They opened for Skeletonwitch the other night. Good live band full of energy.

Not exactly metal but the new Ragnar Zolberg album Sons Ravns is bloody brilliant.

New Sulphur Aeon album, The Scythe of Cosmic Chaos, is damn good.

Jason Becker - Triumphant Hearts

The man has achieved a whole new level of badassery against all odds and in the face of such severe adversity. Hats off.

I've been working my way through various 2018 end of year lists and checking out as much as possible over the past few weeks. Stumbled upon this terrific French-Canadian BM outfit called Sorcier des Glaces (The Ice Wizard). Their latest S/T record is fantabulous.

It's only a month old but Sulphur Aeon - "The Scythe Of Cosmic Chaos" is an absolute monster. Just the sort of blackened-death which is right up my ally. A bit late to the party but better late than never eh?!! :rock:
