Arriving in early May were a couple of hardcore, death metal releases that may have slipped under the radar. First up is the Swedish metal band LIK with their latest release "Carnage." It was released on May 4th and features ten, face melting anthems like "Rid You Of Your Flesh" and "Celebration Of The Twisted." They keep the speed and energy in overdrive, all the way through to the closing tracks, "Death Cult" and "Embrace The End."

Then, a week later on May 11th, the progressive metal band, The Ocean re-issued their song "Rhyacian: Untimely Meditations." The band re-recorded the song to celebrate the its 10th anniversary and to showcase their latest guitar line-up as they prepare to record their next full-length album.

At the very beginning of June, we will see the sophomore release from the Swedish doom metal band, Soliloquium. The new album titled "Contemplations," features eight tracks, beginning with the 9-minute growl of "Chains" and the more mystical metal appeal of "Catharsis." Soliloquium continue with the intense instrumental "Streetlights" and the quieter touch of "22." They close out their new album with their return to the howling doom metal of "In Affect" and the 9-minute progressive metal epic "Wanderlust."
