T O P  1 0 :

10)  Unkind – Pelon Juuret (Finland)
Dark Finnish crust! d-beat hardcore crossed with a highly creative touch of atmospherics. These guys get better with every release.
Preview (bandcamp)

9) Haapoja - S/T (Finland) 
The groovy riffs and scratchy screams gives this band a very personal sound. Impossible to describe properly, but try imagine avant-garde black metal mind combined with a hardcore/crust punk energy and you may have slight idea of what this black metal wibed crust release is about.
Preview (bandcamp)
8) Nails -  Abandon All Life (USA)
Brutal and punishing grind/hardcore release from the American underground - No mercy!
Preview (bandcamp) 

7) Narayama - Pró​-​Exploração (Brazil)
Holy motherfucking shit this is mental. The dual vocal between high pitched shrieking and bowel shaking gutturals is executed perfectly here. To fuel the chaos, every song ends with a wall of harsh noise. This is fucking hate and violence! Grindcore/powerviolence/noise.
Preview (bandcamp)

6) Lxs Jugadxs - Demo 2013 (Argentina)
Fast grind/powerviolence insanity. The vocalist sounds like he's absolutely losing his mind even without death growls or shrieking vocals. Gotta love that SNARE too!Preview (bandcamp)

5) A Million Dead Birds Laughing - Bloom (Australia) 
Experimental // Techgrind. These guys are doing their own thing and I fucking love it.
Preview (bandcamp)

4) Mumakil - Flies Will Starve (Switzerland)
24 songs of fast and vicious grind assault!
Preview (bandcamp)

3) Sacridose - Anxiety Tremors (USA)
Techgrind with hyper fast riffs, scathing vocals, and endless amount of pure grind energy! Left my ears bleed after the very first spin!
Preview (bandcamp)
2) Utopium - Vicious Consolation / Virtuous Totality (Portugal) 
Sweet mix of grind and crust. One of my favorite active grind bands at the moment! Their 2010 ´Conceptive Prescience EP` being one of my alltime grind favorites.
Preview (bandcamp)

1) Cloud Rat - Moksha (USA)
Poetic Crust/Grind Violence !!! LOVE !!!

Scalping Screen - Twelve out of Chamber (2009)

(Death) metal influenced hardcore from Joensuu, Finland.

"You can hear pure metallic rage the songs, but there is also an unbridled fury that comes from hardcore."

Stam1na - Panzerfaust (official video)

It's been a long time since i've really liked Stam1na song this much. Let's hope the rest of the album is this heavy too!

 Top 10:

10) Immolation - Kingdom Of Conspiracy (USA)
In your face, death metal from US.
Preview (youtube)

9) Svart Crown - Profane (France)
Blackened death metal, with some minor similarities to Ulcerate's sound! Good shit!
Preview (youtube)

8) Deformatory - In The Wake of Pestilence (USA)
Great technical death metal without being too complex to my taste. Check it out!
Preview (bandcamp)

7) Decaying - The Last Days Of War (Finland)
Death/Doom metal in veins of Asphyx, but also with deep growls thrown in the mix! KILLER!!
Preview (youtube)

6) Tyrant Goatgaldrakona – Horns in the Dark (Hungary)
Slays!! Don't really have anything bad to say about this.
Preview (youtube)

5) Vastum - Patricidal Lust (USA)
Rather slow, but so catchy death metal. I like this a lot, for the same reasons as I love Torture Killer actually!
Preview (youtube)

4) Entrails - Raging Death (Sweden)
Swedish old school death metal. Nothing more, nothing less.
Preview (youtube)

3) Hail of Bullets - III: The Rommel Chronicles (Netherlands)
Martin Van Drunen + War + Death metal ....Nuff said.
Preview (youtube)

2) Torture Killer - Phobia (Finland)
Groovy mid-tempo death metal from Finland. Not the most creative band, but so fucking catchy and good, can't stop listening! Preview featuring vocals by Chris Barnes (Six Feet Under, ex. Cannibal Corpse)
Preview (youtube)

1) Ulcerate - Vermis (New Zealand)

I usually love old school sound in death metal, but Ulcerete is one of the few progressive/technical death metal acts that really just blows my mind away!

Their sick ass blastbeat driven drum work mixed with the monstrous and very dark atmospheric guitars and deep death growls are just a sound of its own. A classic of forward thinking death metal.

All Hail Ulcerate!

Benighted - Collection of Dead Portraits (2nd single)

"Once again, triple-tiered vocalization makes Benighted sound like a goddamned army; an army that is having a hell of a lot of fun carving it's way through the carnage."

Album: "Experience Your Flesh" February 2014.

Benighted - "Experience your flesh" (official music video)
