The_Gates_Of_Slumber-Conquerer-2008-FNT

Listen up all you doom metal heads out there, this album you might wanna add to your collection.
It´s the new record by U.S. traditional Doomsters The Gates Of Slumber, entitled Conqueror (yes -fnt spells this with an "o" for whatever reason :D ). Anyways, what you find on this album is pure Doom Metal in veins of bands like Candlemass or Trouble. If you dig this sound, as much as I do, i recommend you to get hands on the follow-up to the bands brilliant last effort Suffer No Guilt !

Jorn-Lonely_Are_The_Brave-Promo-2008-QTXMp3


There it is, the new Jorn record for all you traditional heavy metal fans out there.
The Album is called Lonely Are the Brave, and as people who relate to this type of metal music, might already know, Jorn is one the best and most versatile vocalist in the genre.
After his split with german power metal band Masterplan he concentrated mostly on his solo projects and his collaboration with Sir Allen Russel (of Symphony X) called simply Allen/Lande.
No great surpises on this record but if you like traditional heavy metal you should probably check this one out!

Opeth-Watershed-2008-QTXMp3

After some p2p versions, finally the real deal of new 'Opeth' record 'Watershed'.
Not much to say about this band that hasn't been said on other blogs before, clean parts overweights on the new record, bit of 'Pink Floyd' influenced, in a good way.

Abysmal Dawn-Programmed To Consume-2008-FNT

"Richard G.: Where a lot of up and coming bands in the death metal scene are too obviously inspired by either CC or MA, the two biggest bands in (US) death metal, this is not at all the case with Abysmal Dawn, newest addition to the scene. This in itself is already quite a neat feat and deserves praise. This opinion was obviously shared by Relapse, as they decided to sign the band pretty quickly after their 2006 Crash-debut 'From Ashes'.
On 'Programmed To Consume' Abysmal Dawn most certainly know how to gain and retain the listeners attention. The ten compositions are kept interesting via influences from thrash as well as black metal, but it is the attention the band paid to creating the
right dark atmosphere (a quality that Immolation also possesses) which lifts the band high above their up and coming peers. Add to that the high technical level of Charles Elliott's guitar playing plus his need to showcase it in virtually every song in a kick-ass solo and you should have reason enough to be checking these guys out!
