Mr. Painful Memory - Encyclopedia Galactica

Mr. Painful Memory, from Brisbane. Couldn't find much on this band, but their album is name your price / free.

Mulletcorpse - Disinfect

Silly name, but some really sick deathgrind. Featuring ex-members of Terrorhorse. Best of all, Mulletcorpse offers their album free.

Frequence Diversity

Another Belarusian mathcore band submission, Frequence Diversity quickly caught my attention.

The Hysteria

Yet another submission, The Hysteria, mathcore from Belarus. So persistent was their online promotion that I simply couldn't ignore them any longer, and chose to politely ignore the religious undertones and give them a chance.

Czar - Old Haunts

Czar is an awesome band from Washington state, influenced by As the Sun Sets / Daughters, Tower of Romeand a large variety of other influences. Some might even describe this as post-hardcore/metal/grind due to the eclectic nature of the song-writing and the inclusion of synth.

Their old manifestation appears on the tech-metal / mathcore compilation, Mecha Organa 4.

Django Reinhardt

Yeah, more old-timey music. Deal with it.

If you know your music history, you know this guy was probably the most influential modern guitarist ever, so I won't bother detailing his life and the accident that left him with only the use of his fret-hand's index and middle fingers. Truly a fascinating musician, and if you consider yourself a fan of the guitar, do yourself a service.

Journal - Unlorja

I seriously cannot say enough positive things about "Unlorja". I've said more than once that it's the best thing since "Calculating Infinity," mainly because the amount of technical musicianship is simply staggering, and the material here took a substantial amount of time to even memorize. It's an 80 minute masterpiece accompanied with an epic story not unlike Final Fantasy, which is an apparent influence, and gamers will be pleased at the Easter Egg riffs peppered throughout the album. Interestingly enough, three vocalists were used to record the album, including Drew Winter of Conducting From the Grave / Fate / Shadow of the Colossus, and Jesse Alford of Embrace the End. This is arguably one of the most important recent releases in mathcore and technical / progressive metal, and definitely a personal favorite.

Spawn of Possession - Spiritual Deception / Apparition

As you can tell, I'm really excited about this album.

Abuse - .

I've been receiving a lot of submissions, and although I'd never post any I didn't enjoy, most of them have been excellent. I'm also sure it's apparent I've been somewhat neglecting this blog lately, because I'm just now getting around to posting them. 

Here is the first, Abuse, an awesome mathcore / punk act from Florida.
