Opeth – Hjärtat Vet Vad Handen Gör / Heart In Hand

A new track from the upcoming Opeth album. It’s actually two tracks in one. It’s the same song twice, first in Swedish then in English language. Not sure if this is necessary. Nontheless, it’s a solid song. No surprises here. The musicianship of Opeth has always been outstandig.

Primitive Man – Victim

I’ve listened to a lot of “extreme” bands in my life, but rarely anything has hit me like discovering Primitive Man a few years ago. To me, it’s the most brutal and heaviest band. In a good way. The music is crushing, it’s devestating, even exhausting. In a good way. After listening to a full album I feel tired, but also calm and full of joy. Even science agrees: Heavy Metal can boost your mental health.

The video title says NSFW and you better take the warning seriously. Neither the music nor the imagery is for everyone. It’s highly disturbing. In a good way.

Bell Witch – Mirror Reaper

One song, 83 minutes. This album is a challenge for those suffering from a
hyperactivity disorder. It’s an intense and atmospheric doom metal epic. The video consists entirely of archive footage which adds to the album’s themes of grief and loss. The sound is thick and flows smooth like molasses. You can’t really tell that Bell Witch is indeed a 2-piece using only bass, drums, and organ.

The album is available on Bandcamp.
