Swirls of Noise radio #38

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, so here’s a mix of things I’ve been listening to lately. Classic heavy metal from returning heavyweights Diamond Head, with stoner doom, thrash and melodic death metal from Elder, Nervosa and Amon Amarth. Blackened death madness comes from Xothist, Qruxkuor, Altarage, Death Fortress and Archgoat, before the slam trio of Devourment, Wormed and Disentomb. Iceland’s black metal scene is flourishing in recent years, with several bands represented, before some classic death-doom from Disembowelment and Wormphlegm. And it’s not Swirls of Noise without some ambient or drone, with NYIÞ and ZÖN giving vastly different soundscapes.
