Valdyr Some great post-metal with a mix of clean and harsh vocals. Really dig the album art too! Favorite track: The Coal Dog Years.

Ison 07:09
Moving in silence Soaring oblique In a delicate rope In a dry river Wearing a breath of warmth Army Copter Hovering Overhead spherical nightmares Perfect as a dark room We were in this frame And they Could not reset as Ison We were six And then two of us Wandering our choices
Hive 05:41
One last thing Before you faint That door is The edge of the razor Concern divided into fright And experience What did the old man say? What did the old man say? Stand as a pillar As you take on the swarm Stripes, dust, and that taste I won't forget That's how A drop of poison Can ravish harmony That's how I met myself With a chain Around my neck
East Rain 05:44
Drop by drop This gentle rain Cuts into my thoughts As it drenches the soil Its pleasing dripping Carries the distress Of startled people The heat of the blaze The roar of the burst The silent threat Of something that cannot be seen Cannot be heard Cannot be prevented Sudden troubles Will somehow pass Leaving room for a lingering pain That will last beyond The decay
Sun has split in two Air burns still For I am the desert beast Your sticky mantle planted a seed A few step, in a past cloud Warm breath, running to salvation Our roads had to cross and twine Don't you stare at me / you can't move forward Don't you stare at me / You're lying to yourself Scratch on my back / Froth at the mouth Scratch on my back / Red eyes point at the throat Coward / Look now I am armless Coward / As I eat your soul Now rest, share terror Bear the weight of fear to stand alone Is what you're made for Nothing will be as before Why do I move in circles? Straight and sharp was the path

Dotzauer Treviso, Italy

Dotzauer was founded in late 2011 by bassist Sebastiano Pozzobon and guitarist Matteo Gasparin, and later joined by drummer Nick Rigato. The project met with positive reception in early live shows, encouraging members to find new musicians and to further develop a personal style where heavy and telluric structures stand as natural counterparts of hypnotic and embracing passages. ... more
