Introducing the most exciting new bands from across the world of rock, metal and punk, and from every corner of the globe. Also be sure to check out our New Band of the Week section for the hottest new British bands on our radar.

Introducing: TEETH

Canadian trio TEETH offer up a seething cacophony of “unapologetically pissed off noise,” which provides perfect catharsis for the absurd times we currently find ourselves enduring.

Introducing: Census

Arkansas’ Census are a metal band that falls outside the scope of what you might typically expect from a metal band. They’ve honed an intriguing sound that fuses metal elements with delicious yet powerful vocals, modern metalcore instrumentals, synth fusions, and emotionally-driven lyrics.

Introducing: KVLTMOR

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. The main source of inspiration for Russian band KVLTMOR is the Diabolica Quimbanda, a sinister Occult black magic tradition that dates back to the forgotten bowels of human history.

Introducing: Hemmera

Until now, we’ve only ever covered one band from Brazil and no metal bands from the country. However, Ponta Grossa newcomers Hemmera have well and truly put the nation’s scene on our map with their intoxicating fusion of metal, electronica, trance and orchestral elements, plus the contrast of screamed vocals and melodic choruses.
