Necromonkey - Necroplex (2013)

In a musical landscape dominated by artists who seek to recapture the essence of 1970’s groups, Necroplex is a modern and fresh offering from Mattias Olsson (ex-Änglagård) and keyboardist David Lundberg (Gösta Berlings Saga, ex-Änglagård), that combines elements of space-rock, Krautrock, Zeuhl, electronic music, and a few uncharted genres as well!

The amount of weird shit coming out of France has been enough to put a food-posioned Godzilla's rearside to shame. Psygnosis is another mind-blowing French band that mixes death metal with ambient/electronic, black metal and industrial metal. Sounds like a genre clusterfuck? It isn't. These guys may have many influences but they are no strangers to consistency. Human Be[ing] constantly drums on the brittle surfaces of normality and for all its moments of insanity it remains strangely understandable.

Hardcore ... Anal ... Hydrogen? Might as well name your band Djent Diarrhea Flagship or something like that! These musicians are mad as barking cats and they've created, without any doubt, the weirdest metal album I've heard this year. The moment this 22-minute-long album started, I had no choice to cover my face with both hands, shake my head in shame and disbelief, and control myself from falling into the abyss of insanity. What in all the gods' names is this music? The info sheet says experimental ethnic metal, and even though I'm not a fan of creating genres like ethnic metal out of thin air, I must say it's very close to what these guys play.

Experimental death metal is nothing new, there always have been a bunch of brilliant bands to bring something new to the table. Recently bands like DiskordAbyssal, or the better-known Portal have been marching forward with their banners of creativity held high, but Sweden's Morbus Chron manage to stand out even within the experimental/progressive death circle by including some good old thrash metal in their mix.
