Fantastic video. I love the concept and the twist at the end. The music is also captivating. Overall, a great audiovisual experience where everything fits together.

After a long time, the British band Pure Reason Revolution is back with a new album. The band split up in 2011 and now only two of the original members remain. The new album is a fine example of modern progressive rock with fascinating multi-layered duets.
This is one of the best videos I have seen in recent months and one of the most insane videos of all time. The visuals fit the strange music so well. It’s one of those videos you can’t describe to someone. You have to watch it.
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.
I haven’t heard of this Swedish band before, but I’m hooked. This song starts out as pure doom and then wanders off straight into prog territory. And, oh yes, it makes me really happy to hear a Theremin.
Very cool stoner rock band with bluesy riffs and progressive twists. Bandcamp.
Latitudes is a band I have been very much appreciating since their first EP back in 2007. It’s progressive post-metal with complex rhythms. Yet it grooves and flows and packs a lot of emotion which is something many other technical bands lack. They also use moody ambient parts and cool synths to add another layer of depths.
On their previous album, Old Sunlight, they started to experiment with vocals and consequently their new album, Part Island, has vocals on all tracks which gives it a melancholic edge. The sound also has shifted towards a more open and richer approach, yet it’s still a highly complex album and feels painstakingly crafted to the finest detail. This will probably belong to my favorite metal album releases this year.

Some sludge metal to get you through the night. This is a great sounding in-your-face live video. Check out the band’s full album for a diverse and well rounded experience.
Ancestors, outstanding post-metal with slow heavy riffs and pinkfloidy atmosphere. The band’s new album, Suspended in Reflections, will be released on August 24. Until then, you may want to follow up on their previous albums.
