Oslo, Norway’s Diskord have teamed with Hellthrasher Productions and Australopithecus Records to unleash their newest slab of old-school-meets-progressive death on vinyl, CD and digital formats. With their prior full-lengths Doomscapes and Dystopics, Diskord have made a name for themselves in the death metal underground, creating albums that are utterly eccentric in their exploratory rendering of death metal, from riffs and tempo shifts to lyrics and artwork. The new mini-album "Oscillations" sees the band in top-notch form, featuring 26 minutes of perfectly crafted, raw-yet-forward thinking prog/death metal with delicious, old-school flavour.

Just enjoy this magnificent release. Obstacle of Affliction
Chevalier is no doubt one of my favorite up and coming acts, playing an off the beaten path brand of raw sounding speed metal. Go back to their first LP here, self recorded. Sure, it doesn't have the same production level as "Destiny Calls", but it's still a great listen in it's own right. Bloodied But Unbowed
