Thrash/Black Metal:

Black Fast - Cloak of Lies

These kids from St. Louis, MO popped up on my Spotify playlist a couple of months ago, and I dug 'em. They came through town and played one of my stomping grounds, so I checked them out. They were one of the better metal bands I've seen, I was just floored by how kinetic and monolithic they sounded. That prompted me to dig into their most recent album, which is also crushing.

Just a real-deal, straight ahead, uncompromising metal band.

Now hear me out... I know this is not technically new music... but gawdam, this recent discovery, is new music for me... of Cutting Crew doing their hit (I Just) Died In Your Arms is phenomenal. Some youngsters may have never heard of Cutting Crew... No not 2 Live Crew

It starts out with an extended David Gimour-ish guitar solo... then rolls into a acoustic version, then they kick into a blistering full blown take.

One of the best 80's acts. We perform this song c/w a shortened version of this keys / guitar intro :)

Last week i saw these guys, with an absolutely wonderful drummer..

They are called Black Midi and i recommend everyone who gets the chance to go see them..

And i also predict that we will see the name Morgan Simpson within now and 5 years featured in all the drumming magazines you can think about..

Ah yeah, Morgan Simpson, excellent player. I remember he won the UK young drummer of the year about 4 years ago. I just watched a live performance of these guys. Simpson with his shirt off looks and has the energy of a young Thomas Pridgen.

Not new but new to me. Cuban son music and Cape Verdian morna, especially the Legend that is Cesaria Evora. It's made me desperate to get a set of congas. The trouble is, I don't have room for them!

I stumbled onto a metal band from the Ukraine called Jinjer that absolutely destroys. Incredible musicians and an absolute monster of a vocalist, a female who has the most brutal growls/screams and seamlessly shifts to clean vocals. Imagine Gwen Steffani/Amy Winehouse meets Randy Blythe. Drummer is really good also and plays a really unconventional set up.

Glad you mentioned them, I've been a fan for a while, I turned my daughter on to them so she could see that a woman can master brutal or any kind of metal. I consider them one of the best metal acts out there now. Music is well written, complex, brutal and beautiful at the same time. Highly recommend them!
