Here are the first two albums released by Wraith's. An excellent band out of Edinburgh, UK. Haunting drone noise done right, and exceptionally done I might add. They also have a new album out titled The Grey Emperor, I strongly suggest you buy it, if you enjoy what you hear. As for where to start, it dosen't really matter, as both albums are fucking great.
A remarkable experience, a beautiful gem, flawless through out and worthy of creating mass amounts of erections. Subhumans don't even understand. download
A short one from Wisconsin's Burial Hex. Although asumming most have heard Initiations, this one is leaning towards a more power electronic influenced album, yet still containing their dark and frightening feel.

Easily one of my favorite Mark Mccoy projects, three tracks of noisy raw black and they are perfect. Would like to hear more, but I am not sure whether or not it was only one release project or not. It would be nice to know.

Great hardcore/punk, extremely lo-fi, and very noisy. I have really enjoyed what the band has put out so far, and I am greatly looking forward for their self titled full-length coming out febuary/march of next year on Youth Attack. Here is their demo and their latest ep, copys were very limited, so if you missed out, here you go.
Though already having a few releases this year, Islands is another solid release. Fans of the band already know what to expect. Many people sight flaws in vocals, but personally I think they are excellent. They almost give you a hypnotice feel, layered amongst great atmosphere. Overall this is a great release, and newcomers I suggest Shores, or the split with Urfaust, to get you started.

Old DC hardcore at its craziest, United Mutation is basically your 80's hardcore accompanied by vocalist Mike Brown's insane yelps. This is their best release in my opinion, not saying Rainbow Person is bad at all, I just find this one much greater. download
I'm sure alot have heard this already, but upon recently popping this in, I forgot how fucking great this release is. Album slayed then, album slays now. Their best they have put out. Ash Pool more like Ash Rule.
A demo by french black metallers Nuit Noire. This is my favorite release of theirs. Keep an eye out for their demo compilation that has recently come out this year, which is all of the bands demo's on two discs. Fuck yeah.

Leech's Ten Black Hymn's is greatly different from any of the other bands material. The production is very clean, at times sounds like a total different band, but the album itself is outstanding. Aside from their contribution on the Thou split, this is probably their finest effort. To avoid confusion this is not a full-length.
Vordr's 2008 demo is exactly what you would expect from them, it is fucking excellent. I have probably said this countless times before, but the band does not have any bad material, so just incase you have not heard this, I sugest you get on it. This demo for me, ranks up with I, in my fav's. If thats not enough then just look at the cover. Enough said.

Full length release by Oregon's very own Mania. Containing members of Leech, Ancestortooth, and Vault Dweller. The album itself is excellent, very raw, but also a great deal of atmosphere and ambient sections. The Death of Birth is a dimentional listen in its forty minutes of entirety. Some could argue about the lack of length, but I can pretty much say it's perfect. Its just a great listen overall and the guitars, bass and drums are all exceptionally done.

A staple of hardcore that is nothing more than a merciless onslaught to make you piss your pussy pants. The self titled full length has arrived and it is everything I have expected and more. Given the chance, it is probably a must you catch this band live.
Obscure, wierd, raw d-beat from somewhere in the states. The vocals are great, they do seem out of place some of the time, but excellent nonetheless. Always after I have finished listening I can still hear the high pitched howls distantly in my head. A great 09 release!
