Rhadamantys - Labyrinth Of Thoughts

Like an unholy melding of Comus's Wooten and Obituary's Tardy fronting a prog/thrash/death band du fucking awesome!!!

Bhaobhan Sidhe - Corpse Crater

Ya'll may remember this bestial summoning-war machine spinoff I posted waaaay back when, well this is their second album....Just as Fucked??  More so.

Bestial Summoning - Sodomistic Rituals Demo '92

One of the originators...a classick not just of Dutch black metal, but of black metal as a whole. Raw, primal....the total package.

I'm the Law Baby

Allied Forces - The Day After

Good lord this is cheesy, but y'know I wouldn't expect anything less of Dutch heavy metal anno 1986. Hell, I wouldn't WANT anything less!

Pleurisy - My Favourite Girl

What an album title. Sweet old s"cool" deth. Listen to this while you hold your honey close.

Bluuurgh... - Vegetables Of Doom

Veggies of fucking in this will put your ass in a vegetative state for sure. One listen of this punk-inflected death smess and you'll be pulling the plug my friend.

Severe Torture - Feasting On Blood

Sometimes this stuff just hits the spot...mindless brutality, the Dutch way.

Creepmime - Shadows

'93 certainly was a good year for Dutch had the first Countess and this debut from one of the most unheralded tech-death bands EVER!! Dig the artwork too, looks like somthin' off of Mad Butcher!

Angus - Track Of Doom

Grade A+ side chunk roast here folks. A fine, fine slab of Dutch heavy metal..."Sweet lady won't you pour me some wine, I like to get high and I like to feel fine"...

Uncomposing - Northernmost Epic

Redonkulous black-death-forest-prog metal. Totally insane, but definitely worth a listen cuz it was one of Jon Haughm's (yes, he of Agalloch fame) first bands.
From what I know this is Haughm on all instruments...and it is NOTHING like the early Agalloch albums. If anything it sounds like Grave administering a Pacific Northwest roasted coffe bean enema to that first Sculptured album. Hey, but I totally dig it! Just to reiterate, this is not sane stuff and is an acquired taste indeed. Much like that coffee enema I think.

Aslan - Demo 1986

Pre Psychotic Waltz stuff here...back when Devon Grave's was Buddy Lackey and his hair was as long and lush as Aslan's himself.

Agent Steel - Order of the Illuminati

This is a ripper. Prog-thrash with an excruciatingly heavy production. Brucie Boy's soooaaaarring vox and lyrical themes are out of this world, literally. Cosmic flights of fancy that by this time were Agent Steel's niche...their ace in the hole. Order of the Illuminati is a total win, I could listen to a song like Insurrection or Human Bullet a 100x over and not tire of it...a true testament to how amazing this band really is.

Agent Steel - Omega Conspiracy

The Agent Steel boyz dropped Cyris somewhere over Alpha Centauri and picked up top-notch vocalist Bruce Hall along the way.

Sound Barrier - Speed Of Light

Fly me off into space with this one baby, from L.A. sleazy, progressive....and hey, the world's first all-black hard rock band signed to a major label!

Agent Steel - Unstoppable Force

I don't think an album title has ever described it's music soo perfectly. Let wildman Cyris take you on an epic journey cross hither & yon.

Forgotten Psychopath

Here'sa few re-upped....we'll see how this works, hopefully well. I appreciate everyone that enjoys the bands I talk about, especially the rarer albums....some of this shit is just sooo good that it just has to be given the light of day y'know.

I might do like a top ten of my favorite posts so far and re-up those albums...that actually sounds kinda fun!

Bifrost - Mythistory

Pretty much the finest crazy-ass Dutch viking At The Gates worshipping band you'll ever lay ears upon. Riffs upon riffs galore!!!
