It is time to complete a list of previously posted bands with their new releases. We have two groups: Japan and the rest of the world. They intersect with three other groups: classic metal, crossover/hardcore/grind punk and Shellshock. We also have male and female. And we have megamaximum extra zer and great new stuff.
When it came out, I wasn't too interested in the RDP collection, this kind of releases often gathers bad quality recordings. I was so wrong, then I had to wait for this reissue on FOAD. This compilation is amazing, any RDP fan must buy a copy of this superb double LP. Only killer tracks here, amazing covers (the Septic Death and DRI ones totally kick heads!), burning live stuff and unreleased sessions, and a funny bio. Raging thrashing crossover!
In the metal group, we have four classic beasts. Onslaught deliver a great album, although it will never replace The Force or Killing Peace. Still, excellent Onslaught all the way. Artillery come with a truly amazing album full of killer riffs and great hooks. At first when the promo song was published I was dubious because of the new singer, but he's actually perfect. This album is an achievement in power and melody, a major piece in their discography. Just like Sigh who here put out one immense mountain of might. Multilayered high end black metal with circus music and Venom: they nailed it to the bone. Amazing! My favorite Sigh of the past ten years, easy. And the winner is... Satan. Life Sentence defies the laws of tradition. It is undeniably a modern album, yet it screams 1983 from all angles. It is a masterpiece in songwriting, execution and production, I would not blaspheme too much by saying it is one of the best heavy metal albums ever released. Each song is a classic, it brings out the best of NWOBHM, strips it of all the possible cheese, feeds it into the genius generator and leaves you flabbergasted. I didn't think they'd ever match Court In The Act, the only 1983 metal album that had me salivate as much as Show No Mercy and Kill'Em All. But they did! Non metal people should seriously listen to this diamond now firmly shining over the Eternal Zer Top Ten even if it is only a few months old. Hail Satan!
Now we turn to the Japanese thrash bunch. Let us get our audition canals cleaned up in a Flagitious Idiosyncrasy session. The ladies grind as much as before, but this is still not going to replace 324 or Multiplex. It's fun, not classic. More repeated satisfaction is earned from the new Clown and Forward. [I just realized the other Clown post needs refreshing, will do soon.] This new album is even greater than Livestock World. Bombastic punk rocking hardcore of the Testu Arrey | Forward | Paintbox branch, which means Poison Idea worship and greatness. Human is already a classic album, just like the new Forward, also their best IMHO. Forward kick and groove like hell, rezer of the perfect punk abrasion and rezer of the rezer! Beyond Description also come back with a great piece of crossover not too far from Attitude Adjustment (sometimes with a James Hetfield impersonation). It is maybe a bit too polished or not raw enough to excite as much as Clown, but in their current style Beyond Description bang that head.
Church Of Misery! Another fantastic release, and also my new favorite in their discography. Heavy duty dirty stoner massage at maxizer level served by an amazing sound production. This is better than the latest Cathedral or Electric Wizard. Can't wait to see them live, they should return soon.
Now... If I had to select only one album from this amazing list, I would suffer a lot, but I know I would instinctively grab the new Shellshock. Doom fans cannot not cherish Shi and its advanced semiprogressive thrashy punk rocking groove. Depending on the permeability of your neuron, you can hear some Coroner and Voïvod hovering over a field of high-end punk temptation. Simply perfect! Shellshock must never abort their mission, Shellshock forever rezer!
!ZER everybody ZER!
Remove brackets and unzip: [happy new zer]

Note URGENTE aux adeptes de Manu-Joseph Vallsline, il faut saisir le conseil d'État immédiatement afin d'électrocuter dans les plus brefs délais Michel Audiard et Jean-Pierre Marielle car d'aussi intolérables soufflés aux crevettes ne peuvent décemment pas survivre une seconde de plus dans un Univers d'amour, de partage et de libartu d'issprichion:
