Discipline Misanthropy Get it done yourself and don't wait for validation from some record company shmuck is the moral story of Discipline Misanthropy (Austria), which is why they decided to release their fireblasting black/death metal debut Zerogod.It has both a real black metal as well as death metal feeling, resulting in an impressive, well done full-length cd that sounds serious, professional and skillful. As you can read here, they keep the music going regardless of metal press attention or not as they explain a bit about what life for a black/death metal in Austria. www.myspace.com/ disciplinem Wlmt tltingslnae lrou rlone in support of trour nlbunt "ZeroSod"? possiblebecnuse of our jobs.

Hautakumpu While it is true that somc former black metal bands keep getting weirder and weirder, turning into normal rock bands or space or techno rock, it is certainly encouraging to hear a band like Hautakumpu (Finland), which has recently recorded Lludert Ajnn Antto and it is a straight-up, barbed-wire, classic-stylecl black rnetal assault. The lyrics are all in Finnish, so here they explain the icleasfor their storics. In addition, they were patient and answered some unexpected questions. Sasu "Lord Frosthor" Savolainen (guitars) answers questions here, except the last question, which is answered by Patrik "Thc Hell" Kuitunen (drurns). The bancl's new vocalist is Harri "Panzertcrror" Kankaanpii2iand new guitarist Sami "Fericious" Ikonen. www.myspace.com/ hautakumpu

Corpus Tlrc Rise by Corpus (Belgium) is a cd that's more than 70 minutes of dtit it',g, uptempo, expertly played metal. It's a professional, serious cd with good production, with some extra ipices to liven up proceedings, like a nice, constant, background keyboards/classicalsound. The vocals are clear, with a midrage tone, nothing too high or annoying. The vocals sound good and fit the music well. There are some bands out there that are not signed and many people may not know about them, but the quality is undenia6le here. Corpus is one of those bands for sure. Plus, I like the fact that the cd is not short and that it is not

simple. Makes it more interesting to revisit and discover new things. By the way, their wonderful song "The Fatekeeper" is just one example of the quality of the music: it is a "hit" with me!

Angelic Deficiency The music of this band (U.S.)in the live environment probably sounclsa lot like aggressivc,heavy growl metal, but it is not just loud noise. Well, it is loud noise, of course, but there a bit of experimentation or style crossovcr, from death metal ancl hardcore, ancl thrash and some tech and dissonantcomponents. As you will read, people arc not sure what to call the bancl as far as a catcgory, and the bancl kind of cnjoy not caring. Howcver, the music is not nearly as strange as thesewords may make thcm seem. Basically, it's growl metal with some twists thrown in to spice up the moshing.
