Undeath – It’s Time… To Rise From The Grave

There is a simplicity to Undeath's sound in their emphasis on songwriting and powerful riffing, and one would be hard pressed to find a band as catchy as them in the OSDM sphere. As was the case with Lesions, their hotly anticipated follow-up It's Time... To Rise From The Grave is a masterclass in death metal, and a clear love-letter to the genre's history.

Sanguisugabogg – Tortured Whole

Columbus, Ohio's Sanguisugabogg are among one of the most hyped up-and-coming death metal bands of the moment. Their demo Pornographic Seizures, released in 2019, was acclaimed in underground death metal circles and moved units quickly, landing them on the Century Media roster for their debut album Tortured Whole. It would seem that The 'Bogg has found themselves an early formula for success as a rising act to watch in death metal.
