Unwilling Flesh - Between the Living and the Dead (Bindrune/ Eihwaz)
West Virginia solo project pays homage to the classic Swedish Death Metal sound on this debut release. I particularly dig the guitar tone featured throughout, which captures those early 90's Swedish classics perfectly.
Witch Mountain - Mobile of Angels (Profound Lore)
The Portland quartet is back with their 4th full-length doom release. The riffs are as doomtastic as ever and the vocals are stunning. Unfortunately, this will be the final Witch Mountain release to feature Uta Plotkin's vocals, as she has decided to pursue other musical avenues.
