Kalmah-12_Gauge-2010-SWAMPLORD

If you are looking for some new decent Melo Death, I would recommend Dark Tranquillity over Kalmah, but if you can't get enough of that genre, you should grab this release, too.
Don't expect much of a change on the standard song formula, so if you are in common with this band, you'll either like it or find it a bit boring.

Burzum-Belus-2LP-2010-BERC

New Burzum out thanks to Berc, who else? ;) Great pre-store release. Hits the stores in some weeks! Burzum aka Varg Vikernes is quite a big name in the black metal scene, though more based on his evil bad (and stupid) doings. I heard they are doing a movie about him this year called 'Lords of chaos'. They actually want to put Jackson Rathbone, known from the shitty twilight movies, in the role of Varg, lol. Decide for yourself if this is a listenable record ;)

Fear_Factory-Mechanize-Limited_Edition-2010-NOiR

Here's another rip of new Fear Factory, and this time a proper one. A short look on the bitrates is enough to see that this proper is indeed needed. Ouzo's bitrates are like 50-60 kbps lower then this rip. If you have the ouzo rip, I suggest to get this rip, the difference in the bitrates is really audible. Limited Edition comes with a bonus track.

Fear_Factory-Mechanize-2010-Ouzo [Nuked]


After 5 years of absence from the scene comes the new Fear Factory record, 2 weeks in advance. It's a a shame that no metalgroup could get their hands on this big CD first, but I've already seen this Ouzo rip gettin nuked for being a reencode, so maybe there will be another rip out. If you don't care, this release should still be listenable in terms of quality.

I don't believe that FF are able to deliver a good sound again, but still, it's a big release and one might as well give it a listen.

Now all we need is a leak of the new Overkill record, which will be out early february, to have the best of early 2010 out ;)

Vektor-Black_Future-2009-NOiR

Hell, what a day for a metal head this was, with some great BERC rels. But this one might be the best of what has been released today. These Vektor guys really hail those oldschool thrash metal bands like Voivod or Watchtower, without ripping them off. They play some really good technical thrash, you should definitely give 'em a try. Haven't heard more then their myspace tracks, but they seriously kicked some ass. It's already #7 on rateyourmusic for 2009, which is quite impressive. Listen to them now, if you haven't had the pleasure yet!

Maybe the biggest hit from BERC today, and the release most of you are waiting for. It's Ihsahns lates effort. Listened to a couple of tracks so far, it seems pretty good on a first listen, provided you like this guy at all.
Frequent use of wind section instruments. I'm not that much in common with his former stuff, so I don't know if he did that before. Some days pre-store, so get it when it's out next week!

Shining-Blackjazz-2010-BERC



No, not the Shining from sweden, I thought so, too. MA doesn't even list those Shinings from Norway, so i'm gonna make this short. RYM lists this as Progressive Rock/Progressive Metal, Jazz Fusion, Experimental Rock. Use google if you need more infos. I didn't really find this band fascinating, so see this just as a small notice that it isn't the Black Metal band.
