Persefone – Lingua Ignota: Part I

They were always kings of odd time signatures, disrupted rhythmic songwriting and extreme technicality, so to see them scale down on these aspects was not something I was ready for. I was also afraid they’d just dilute their creativity to please a wider audience. But Persefone is as strong as it ever was, if not even stronger.

Exocrine – Legend

This is another one of those bands that have passed me by until now. Legend is their fifth album in just under ten years. So not only is there a back catalogue to explore, but it shouldn’t be too long before album number six. Bring it on I say because the pros far outweigh the cons on this release, so it’s thumbs up from me.

Stortregn – Finitude

I was expecting an exciting competition for tech-death supremacy to emerge towards the end of the year, as the release date to “Finitude” grew closer.  What I didn’t expect, however, was that this album was going to shatter the bar and go play in a league of its own.

Alkaloid – Numen

On top of the fact that it is excellently put together as a modern death metal album, “Numen” might also be one of the most diverse and multi-faceted extreme metal releases I’ve come across!

Tegmentum – Evolvement

Despite having sat through a bunch of technical death metal albums since the beginning of this year, I can easily say that Tegmentum dropped the most brutal album of 2023 so far. And it will be a very difficult one to top.

Kallias – First Ascent

“First Ascent” is an extraordinary display of clever composition, diverse technical abilities and ingenious combinations that stands as a unique voice in the progressive death metal scene!

Distention – Nothing Comes From Death

Distention does a great job of bringing together the old and the new, and I can totally see it as a gateway for the older generations of metalheads to familiarize themselves with the new wave of tech-death, or vice-versa.

Structural – Decrowned

Structural’s sophomore effort wastes no time and takes no prisoners. It is a relentless display of punchy and creative death metal with just enough variety to turn their craft into a maelstrom of sophisticated badassery!

Dissentient – Labyrinth

If we believe Periphery, Djent is not a genre – and as they basically coined the term, they should know. However, if it was a genre, Canada’s Dissentient have taken the playbook and nailed it. Fans of the genre are well advised to look past the smaller-scale resume of this band and give the album a try.

Warforged – The Grove | Sundial

I feel like the band stayed true to the weird, ruthless concoction of sonic witchcraft and mad science that made their debut so savage, but they decided to take their listener’s risk of heart failure into account on this one.
