HAUNT Flashback

Album · 2020 · Heavy Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
I think we already have a strong contender for Album of the Year!

Flashback is a new the release from the one man band Haunt. Everything here is made by the restless Trevor William Church, who doesn't only released another album under the Haunt moniker - the good Mind Freeze - but it's always working on a new EP of BEASTMAKER, his another band.

Despite this big production, Trevor always manages to keep the good quality of his music. This Flashback is no exception, and it's even better than most of Haunt discography. Great riffs, catchy chorus, and excellent hooks, with some subtle but interesting keyboards here and there. It's a short album too, so we end the listening session begging for more!

Recommendded album for the trad metalheads out there.

SURRA Virou Brasil

EP · 2019 · Crossover Thrash
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Yep, another EP from the brazilian hardcore/crossover thrash band Surra. Despite its short length (not even four minutes), this release shows a much varied sound: the first track is a genuine samba (no bullshit!) with anti-fascist lyrics. The second song is a straightforward hardcore. The very short "Não Entendi" is pure grindcore, no more no less. And, finally, "Caso Isolado" is a fast crossover track.

"Virou Brasil" is another strong EP from these guys, with a hilarious cover art, and works as an appetizer for their next full length, named "Escorrendo Pelo Ralo" (which already have a single). Go on, check it out!

RORCAL La Femme Sans Tête

EP · 2015 · Drone Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
My first drone album - and it was a pleasant experience!

Rorcal is a doom/drone/experimental band from Switzerland, specialized in huge tracks mixing atmospheric passages and crushing riffs. La Femme sans Tête is an EP (despite its half-hour lenght) containing one song divided in three movements.

The first track is calm and minimalist, with sparse sounds of electronics and some drumming. The second one brings noise and that marvellous crushing riffs. It's more varied than one can imagine, I even banged my head at some point! The third track follows this trend and end the album in a high note.

Good album, indeed. Recommended for fans of drone doom and experimental sounds.

SURRA Somos Todos Culpados

EP · 2015 · Hardcore Punk
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
"Somos Todos Culpados" (We Are All Guilty) is an EP from the brazilian hardcore band Surra.

Their sound is basically a blend of hardcore, crossover thrash and grindcore/powerviolence - the latter influences are more noticeable in the songs "Xerifão" (Big Sheriff) and Fim de Festa (End Of Party). It's also pretty evident the influence from other brazilian bands, like RATOS DE PORÃO and DFC.

It's a short release with only four songs, working more like an appetizer to the rest of their catalog. Bottom line, the music is pretty good and catchy, sometimes great, and, despite the language (all their releases are sung in portuguese), it's recommended to everyone who likes some violent hardcore with thrash influences.

SLEEP The Clarity

Single · 2014 · Stoner Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Against all the probabilities, Sleep returned after a hiatus of 16 years, releasing a new song through the 2014 Adult Swim Singles – remembering that is free for download. Many acts return years after disbanding, and we all know that most of these returns weren't worth the wait...

But rejoice, fans of Sleep, you all can get high again! The line-up is not the same, since the original drummer left the band. Some people felt this loss, but I couldn't see the difference, really! The musicianship shown in this song, named The Clarity, is excellent. Many nods to Black Sabbath and the 70's hard rock/proto-doom bands, with a generous dose of psychedelia in the last half.

This song is recommendded for the stoner/doom metal fans. Check it out!

    Black Sabbath - my first metal band, still a big fanOzzy Ozbourne - I was totally crazy about the Madman when I was a teen, but I'm not a big fan since ages. Sabbath stood better the test of time, even the recent solo albums aren't my cup of teaIron Maiden - Every two months, more or less, I have an overdose of Maiden! Haha, they are greatHelloween - Loved it before, and I started listening in the Andy Deris era! I was a fan of power and speed metal, not so much nowadaysNirvana - another thing I liked very much in the past, just can't stand now.Metallica - started to listen with the Black album, which were my favorite album. Now I love the first four albums mostlySepultura - still a fan, the Max era until Chaos AD and the most recent albums from the Derrik era.Queen - marvelous, always listeningPink Floyd - always a fan, just changed from "The Wall" to DSOTM and the other classics.
