My Recent Metal Music Purchases – END IT, AHNA And SICARIUS On Cassettes!

Posted in Metal with tags , , , , , , , on May 4, 2020 by Metal Odyssey

I purchased END IT One Way Track on cassette from M-Theory Audio. END IT is a Hardcore band, hailing from Baltimore Maryland. This is a 4 song EP and it was released earlier in 2020, via Flatspot Records. I dig Hardcore and you should too.

I purchased this AHNA Crimson Dawn cassette from the fantastic Caligari Records. If you’re looking for legit underground Metal and/or Extreme Music then Caligari Records is the epicenter of said genres! AHNA hails from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. AHNA is one damn good, ass-kicking band. I absolutely love this band.

M-Theory Audio delivered once again for me, with this brain splitting release from SICARIUS. If you love Black Metal, you must check out SICARIUS and later send me an annual thank you gift for the next 25 years or more. SICARIUS hail from The Inland Empire in California. Hell and yeah. I’ve been listening to this SICARIUS cassette in my car to and from work for several days now and it’s so inspirational!!

Thank you for visiting Metal Odyssey. With countless other things you could be doing, checking in on what Metal I’ve been buying really makes my Metal day. Stay safe and cherish life. – Stone

LONG LIVE METAL.

My Recent Metal Music Purchases: Savage Master, Haunt, Necromorbid…

Posted in Metal with tags , , , , , , , on April 21, 2020 by Metal Odyssey

Here are some recent Metal purchases I’ve made in the last month or two, starting right off with Louisville Kentucky’s very own SAVAGE MASTER. I cannot get enough of the captivating vocals from Stacey Savage! Stacey is supreme! An Occult/Traditional Metal band are SAVAGE MASTER and adding their cassette release of Myth, Magic And Steel to my Metal collection was a powerful move on my Metal behalf!

I am currently still obtaining every release from California’s HAUNT. I am pleased to finally buy the first album from HAUNT on cassette: Luminous Eyes. Traditional Metal fans NEED to check out HAUNT. Man, I dig this band so very much!

NECROMORBID labels themselves as Satanic Extreme Metal and I will not argue with them on that. My passion for the Metal extreme is quite nourished by this cassette release from NECROMORBID. Sathanachrist Assaulter is the title of this new release from them. One more note: these dudes are from Italy.

Going into a more diverse musical direction for myself, I bought the newly released 7″ vinyl from Los Angeles California’s The Dollyrots: Make Me Hot. If you take a closer look at the above record cover, you’ll see that it’s autographed! Yes, for just $5 more, I made certain to get a signed copy by the band. Plus the money went directly to The Dollyrots, via their bandcamp site. Dig it!

The Pop/Punk duo of Kelly Ogden (vocals & bass) and Luis Cabezas (guitar & vocals) entertain me in a feelgood way. Truth be told. The B side of this 7″ vinyl is a cover from Lisa Loebs’ hit song: Stay (I Missed You). Groovy stuff. Thank you for visiting and checking out my recent purchases; I appreciate it more than you know! Stay safe – Stone

LONG LIVE THE MAGICAL POWER OF MUSIC.

My Recent Metal Music Purchases: Metal Church, Haunt…

Posted in Metal with tags , , , , , , on April 16, 2020 by Metal Odyssey

I’ve recently been purchasing my CDs, cassettes and vinyl via online, due to store closures resulting from the coronavirus pandemic. I always patronize my local independent record stores and surely miss going to them; they served as a true escape from the daily grind. Hopefully our country and world will eventually return to some sort of normalcy. We have to!!

At the top of this post is the new METAL CHURCH release: From The Vault. I bought the CD/comic/sticker/guitar pick bundle, directly from Rat Pak Records. I couldn’t be happier with this METAL CHURCH bundle, it’s very unique!

Finland is home for OBDUKTIO and they have kicked the shit out of my ear canals! Ihmiskunnen Viholliset is the title for the cassette I bought directly from Caligari Records. I have no idea what the title translates to; all I know is it translates to OBDUKTIO plays killer Death Metal, Grind and extreme aggression to the maximum of levels! Metal be thy name!

I cannot get enough of California’s HAUNT. This band of young Metal warriors have taken the Traditional Metal torch and have ran away with it! I bought this (yellow version) cassette of If Icarus Could Fly directly from HAUNT, via their bandcamp site. I am currently on a Metal mission to obtain every release from HAUNT; they are that grand and addicting! A guitar driven Metal band!

Yes, it’s HAUNT once again! Their Mosaic Vision EP is available directly from the band and I jumped right on it! Each purchase I bought from HAUNT‘s bandcamp site also included the digital download. Can’t beat that! Thank you for checking out my site, stay safe and play it LOUD! – Stone

Unspeakable Axe Records Release Limited Edition CEMETERY FILTH Cassette

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on September 30, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Cemetery Filth - Screams From The Catacombs - promo cassette cover art pic

Unspeakable Axe Records has released Screams from the Catacombs, the debut EP from CEMETERY FILTH, on limited-edition cassette.

Hailing from the mountainous eastern region of Tennessee, CEMETERY FILTH  sound as if they’d be more at home in an unholy netherworld poised somewhere between Finland and Sweden. This is old school Death Metal in a mainly European vein: morbid, twisted, and abstaining from technicality while injecting just the right-sized dose of melody and eerie lead guitar.

Unspeakable Axe Records is now offering the EP, which was self-recorded by the band earlier this year, on cassette. This release is limited to 200 copies. Check out the title track from Screams from the Catacombs below:
