Canadian progressive metal band Third Ion return with their second album in as many years titled "Biolith." Their first album paid tribute to the history of home video games, but this new release has a more intense, mature sound. Beginning with "State Of Flux," the new eight-song release features Dave Padden (Annihilator) on vocals following the departure of Tyler Gilbert following the release of their debut album "13/8 Bit." The technique and musicianship are on full-display during "Cosmic Delusion," while the energy of "Biolith" will get your blood pumping with it's hardcore metal sound. The music gets a little jazzy on the low-key tones of "Status Undetermined," before wrapping up the album with the buzzing tempo changes of the seven-minute "Temporal Divide" and the atmospheric soundscape of "Corpus Solaris."

Finnish heavy metal band Tyfon's Doom will be releasing their debut album "Yeth Hound" on July 8th through Gates of Hell Records (a Cruz Del Sur Music sub-label). While the songs may be new, their sound has a very nostalgic feel as they look to mirror their sound after their influences. The short five song EP begins with the title-song "Yeth Hound" as guitars electrify the songs European metal sound. The energy picks up with the growling vocals of "Still Here," before the mysticism of the prog-metal juggernaut "Gates To New Realty" take you on a journey. This new release also tacks on four bonus tracks taken from the band's 2015 demo.

Finally we arrive at the new album from death metal band Warfather titled "The Grey Eminence." It will be released in September and was produced by death metal icon Erik Rutan (Morbid Angel). The new album contains nine tracks, beginning with the six-minute adventure of "Orders Of The Horde" as the band stretch out their songs giving them a progressive metal feel. The thunderous rhythm of "Headless Men Can No Longer Speak" and the screeching guitars of "Judgment, The Hammer" put you right in their path of sonic destruction. The album finishes with the nearly seven-minutes of intense music of "Carnage Of The Pious" and the shear force of the "Fair And Final Warning."
