As I stumble upon new music every week I though I would begin to collect the most memorable ones and post something about them here, mostly for my own amusement, but if anybody else discovers new exciting music in the progress while stumbling over my humble page, so be it.
My initial plan was to make the post during the weekend, but well, I didn’t manage to stick to my plan so here it is, a few days late.
One of the more significant discoveries this week, is a truly great album from Obsidian Kingdom. They offer ’Mantiis’ as free download but please read the bands download manifesto regarding why they are giving away their music for free and support them in other ways, if you can.
They have a very special sound and style: experimental, atmospheric, industrial and post black metal, are some of the genres that comes to mind when I listen to them. I really recommend that you download the album as the tracks flows into each other and deserves to be listened to in their continuity without the breaks that you will experience on BandCamp where you can stream the album.

The duo Wolvserpent just recently signed with Relapse Records and by that they are giving away their Demo ’Perigaea’, that holds 5 apocalyptic doom, avant-orchestral drone and blackened, sepulchral ambient tracks (the record labels own definition of the bands style). The duo consists of Blake Green (guitar, vocals, keys) and Brittany McConnell (drums, percussion, violin) and was formed in 2010.
This is really nice atmospheric music and well worth a listen if you are into this kind of music.
Get the demo for free at the bands website:

Well sometimes, but not always, when I get a new follower on Twitter, that happens to be a band, I try to take a listen to them to see what they are all about. Watchworks from Gothenburg/Göteborg in Sweden is such a ’discovery’.
Groovy, aggressive, progressive, metal-fusion that will surely get you in a good mood!

And finally sometimes discoveries made by friends on Facebook can catch my attention too!
This was one of those discoveries that you just feel you have to share with others, and that I did! 🙂
Djent combined with rap is nothing you stumble upon everyday and this is really good too.[They have since I wrote this post removed their EP from bandcamp, you have to visit their own website to buy the EP]
