Dread Zeppelin
Bar Coda
Label: Cash Cow Productions

The basic “schtick” here involves an Elvis impersonator vocalist singing Zeppelin (and other) classics reinvigorated to an often reggae beat. This time they inject some Beatles, Bob Marley and other song snippets with their unique flavor as well.

D Numbers
Lightparade
Label: Self Released

Boarding on instrumental jamtronica but activating just enough quirky indie rock impressions as to not be permeated with a patchouli patina. The stylistic layered approach that this Santa Fe, NM trio utilizes is a constant but the sonic outcomes create a variety of tonal conundrums.

Diary Of Dreams
Nekrolog 43
Label: Metropolis Records

Dark and haunting gothic industrial electronica with sinister ambience yet beautifully breathtaking beats and passages. From the deep and demented mind and voice of Adrian Hates.

Dreamscape
5th Season
Label: Locomotive Records

Progressive metal from Munich, Germany portrayed with theatrics and grandeur. The male vocals are sung with just the right finesse between intense and emotive plus the headbanging grooves are parted with a friendly amount of atmospheric interludes.

Dub Trio
Another Sound Is Dying
Label: Ipecac Recordings

Swirling metal, reggae, dub, jazz and a sphincter load of talent together with unscrupulous sounds in an elevator shaft of musical potential that also swings the fulcrum of nefarious fanaticism to produce outlandish yet cohesive results in a Melvins kinda way.

Attack
Label: Touch and Go/Quarterstick Records

grooves of doom take flight from their terse, rudimentary beginnings and find fertile ground as the tonalities grow darker and more aggressive. Clean bad boy vocals spice the palette.

Taming the wilds of your mind so that inner healing can occur, on this release Deuter harnesses impressionistic piano to fill but not overfill the musical space. Another in his line of excellent massage, Reiki or meditation CDs, the songs here contain a carefully measured harmonic blanket of sound and result in a cosmic blissful state.

Darkest Hour
Eternal Return
Label: Victory Records

Rolling and thundering melodic metal with a fair amount of technical wizardry ta boot! Born in the mid 90s, the band was among the first to combine their American hardcore/punk fury with the Swedish death metal sound and is the lineage that still propels their music.
