Héctor Hurtado Grooscors Solo project from one of Sweden's most prolific artist: Jonny Pettersson (Wombbath, Just Before Dawn, etc.). This is pure Crusty Death Metal madness with the classic Swedeath tone, which means is aggressive, thick, filthy, murky, and more. Favorite track: Den förstörda människans rike.

flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) About as subtle as Negan's baseball bat. Heavy and abrasive as hell.  The vocals sound like they scraped clean through the vocal chords and now he's just howling through a bloody hole in his neck.  The H-2 pedal does its job admirably as do the ever-present D-beats. Favorite track: Är din botten nådd.

Wonderbox Metal This is deathgrind of the highest, yet filthiest variety. This is officially the first album to make it to my contenders-for-best-of-2017-album-list.

Read the review - Favorite track: Vinst eller fölust.

Swimming Poole This band and album simply crushes the competition. This album is going to blow the roof off the scene. Def my favorite band and album of 2017. And that is a bold statement given we aren't even really into the year yet. But this will be the album all metalheads should own. I really hope for more by them or should I say him technically given that the band is just Jonny Pettersson playing akll instruments and doing local duty. So much love for him and what he did here. Keep up the good work. Favorite track: Är din botten nådd.

Propraetor When I finally got my download of this album, I ended up listening to it about 6 or 7 times in a row, on repeat. This album is nothing short of pure genius brutality.

From Jonny Pettersson of WOMBBATH comes HENRY KANE, a ferocious slab of crusty Swedish death metal like no other. Rarely before has death metal been so vigorously channelled via the template of crustcore, leaving it infected with rabid fervour few can muster up the courage to withstand. This not only blends genres but lends to it an atmospheric quality fostered by an emotional undercurrent. Amidst slabs of cascading concrete, you have faint but poignant melodies making an appearance, changing the landscape of this expression. Nostalgic yet amplified to modern day aggression, HENRY KANE is the future of Swedish death metal and crust, a marriage made in a perfect post-apocalyptic world.
