Leeds melodic death metal trio Pteroglyph offer up a fascinating fusion of old school death metal and modern technical metal. It’s an approach they delightfully describe to us as “feral and violently technical songs.”

Emerging from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Calgary band Greybeard offer up a delicious fusion of metal influences, from black metal and death metal to atmospheric and progressive elements.
How would you feel about revisiting songs or even things you thought or ranted about 21 years ago? Personally, I think it’s best not to even contemplate visit 15-year-old me’s thoughts.

Parisian band ODC have honed a diverse rock sound that draws on modern metal and alternative metal influences. Led by the superb vocals of frontwoman Celia Do, the band complements them with booming riffs, powerful drums and an almost industrial instrumental sound.

You often here people who aren’t fans of metal lazily denigrate the genre as “the Devil’s music.” Well, in this case, they’d be absolutely correct.

Until now, we’ve only ever covered one band from Brazil and no metal bands from the country.
