live II (2014/MY PROUD MOUNTAIN)
PROGRESSIVE-METAL/HARDCORE. AMENRA spreading their vision of a world that's out of touch with its past, present and future, they take their adepts through a world of unseen mystique. Their postmodern vision of music, existing of droning, repetitive chords alternated by gut-wrenching hauls can make an experienced listener renounce his definition of music, perhaps even his whole belief system. AMENRA puts heart and soul into every note, word and image, and changes the course of people's lives everywhere their path leads.

dead of sleep (2014/GTR)
HARDCORE/METAL. CRUCIFIED's volatile, thrash-influenced hardcore with infectious pick-up parts and monstrous breakdowns saw the band make an instant impact on the late '90s scene. Their 2008 demo was later released as a split with California's NO TRUCE on Escapist Records, followed by a split with STEEL NATION in 2009 on Double Or Nothing Records, who also released their "coldest winter" LP in 2010. In 2011, CRUCIFIED entered the studio for one last session, but decided to call it a day before the material saw release. Now, 3 years after their demise, these seemingly lost tracks become available as the "dead of sleep" 7". Any diehard fans of RINGWORM, GEHENNA and DISGRACE will undoubtedly be enthralled by CRUCIFIED's posthumous intensity. Colored vinyl includes a digital download card.
oblation (2014/SEASON OF MIST)
PROGRESSIVE-HARDCORE/METAL. The world has been waiting a decade for FLOOR to follow up their now-classic self-titled album, but with duties in bands like TORCHE and DOVE, the members left us waiting. Now "oblation" is here and delivers on the highest expectations. From start to finish, the drop-tuned, down-tempo trio mine the power of the riff, their signature melodies and patented bomb string attack.

the killing gods (2014/SEASON OF MIST)
DEATH-METAL/GRINDCORE. MISERY INDEX's "the killing gods" album distills almost 15 years of relentless touring, recording and writing into one of 2014's best extreme metal albums. "the killing gods", 12 tracks (including the five-part, 15min. album opener "faust"), are a crucial exercise in veracity; eschewing superfluous parts or studio trickery for brutal economy and effect. Riff after riff drips with malevolence, while the band's dual vocal assault transmits the chaos of a dystopian society gone mad. As "the killing gods" proves from start to finish, MISERY INDEX has crossed the threshold into death-metal greatness.
