What’s Cookin’ in the Inbox (11 March 2013)

It’s that time again when submissions are filling up the inbox. Sometimes, we receive emails featuring bands that are not accompanied with a digital download for review. No reason to hold anything back from you, the reader. Below are a few bands of varied styles that you may or may not be interested in. Either way, it’s time to expose the bands to you and expose you to something you may like…in which case, mission complete. Without further delay, here are a few you may be interested in.
The French metal band is described as French experimental metal. I will hand to them for being fairly accurate on their description. Acid Mist Tomorrow is slightly over 10 minutes of said experimental metal. In late March they will be touring with Gojira which honestly seems like a good fit and cool opener for Gojira. There is a lot going on with this song so I highly recommend listening to the whole thing for the experience. Enjoy!
From California, Otono describes themselves as Melodic Death Metal. Follow the link below to check out their song Dark Shores (A Requiem for Annabelle). The song is full of heavy riffs, deep growls, and also some very delicate melodies mixed in.
The Dutch-based quarter is about to release their first album Monday Superblues. The album was produced by Joey Z which you may remember him from his Life of Agony days. The overall feel is a heavy rock doom vibe which is cool. Check out the bandcamp stream below.
For Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson fans, you may wan to take a listen to WVM’s debut EP titled The End is Only The Beginning. This introductory EP features Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Tweaker) and Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle) playing drums on various songs. As mentioned, for Manson and Reznor fans, this may be right up your alley.
I hope you enjoyed this installment of What’s Cookin’ in the Inbox. This was a varied mix of bands and styled this time around. Hopefully, there was something you enjoyed listening to. Until next time…
