October 23, 2015 | By B Lo

Shattered Shores combines two things we love at idobi Howl: intense shredding and a concept reminiscent of the TV show Lost.

idobi Howl Featured Playlist – Week of March 23rd, 2015

March 25, 2015 | By B Lo

We are usually skeptical about the influence of sponsors in underground metal and hardcore but we suspend our criticism when Game Of Thrones is involved. HBO is serving Killswitch Engage-flavored Kool Aid and we are shamelessly drinking every last drop. The extended version of “Loyalty” has the audio from this unforgettable scene (spoiler alert) in […]

We had great expectations for Psycroptic when “Echoes to Come” was released as a single November 2014. Then again,  Psycroptic‘s self titled is their second full length since 2008 (sixth overall). Fans are accustomed to waiting for the Tasmanian death prog quartet, and they were awarded again in 2015. Perhaps there is broader commentary to […]

idobi Howl Featured Playlist – Week of March 9th, 2015

The Agonist  steps  their way from third to first in three weeks, a feat no other band has achieved in approximately six months of publishing a playlist. Eye Of Providence marks the debut of Vicky Psarakis who joined The Agonist after Alissa White-Gluz replaced Angela Gossow in Arch Enemy.  The moral of this story?  These […]

idobi Howl Featured Playlist – Week of March 2nd, 2015

March 5, 2015 | By B Lo

We try to keep our featured tracks as hype-free as possible. Our playlist should  reflect the very best (and ideally, newest) metal and hardcore out there right now.  That’s why we waited for Stick To Your Guns‘ Disobedient release week to pass before we revisited the album for consideration at the top of our featured […]

We try not to get carried away with industry talk but Torche should be commended for superb timing with the December release of “Minions”, the first single from Restarter out this week. Relapse Records took advantage of the music industry’s slowest season and the track kicked around Howl’s playlist for three months since. The Agonist […]

February 24, 2015 | By B Lo

Rotting Out lands a top berth on Howl’s featured tracks this week, possibly with the help of hardcore’s most charming smile and sheer intimidation.  More of what we’re talking about in the video for “Born“. Stick To Your Guns returns to the spotlight with the release of Disobedient which has a cameo from the aforementioned […]

Sylosis takes the top spot after three weeks bouncing between second and fourth place. One of three releases by UK bands in our featured playlist (Napalm Death and Enter Shikari), Dormant Heart  has just enough prog parts to keep the thrash riffs from shredding too relentlessly. Yes,  it actually happens. Call Of The Void and […]
