Zachary Gates I won't even say this is good "For a one-woman metal band". This is just a goddamn excellent brutal death metal release, the fact that it's all done by one woman is outrageous. No excuses not to purchase. Favorite track: Annihilation.

Azazel ♒ 7293 Brutal as fuck! Death metal with the little trippy thing that makes it sweet-flavored. Favorite track: The Coming.

Sunder MK2 While hard to classify into a metal subtype, this album is one well put together piece of smash someone standing next to you. Favorite track: The War at the Edge of Existence.

Gauge Schmidt Very good all around 7 track album by Samantha Michelle Smith, production sounds tight and clear, her gutturals puts some dudes I've heard to shame, and the riffs are Slammy. A "Graduated" album if you will from previous stuff F.T.D. has put out \m/

Andreas Diebold Samantha Michelle Smith really did a great job on this one: Awesome gutturals, great slams, nice guitar playing. A one-woman-band that beats the shit out of it! Support! Favorite track: The Coming.

As long as you do NOT make money off of the download you are free to disseminate this album, provided you provide a link-back to here where a fan may purchase the music if they so choose.

Remember, if you really like it, spread the word!
And a few kind words on MA wouldn't hurt either:

Much love to CreativeLive ( ) without whom the production on this would have suffered. Those guys are doing an amazing service, GIVING AWAY courses by some of the top names in music for FREE when they're live. Go show them some love and maybe buy a course or two!

A shoutout to Eyal Levi, without whom the drum programming on this album would have been an abortive pile of crap (seriously, check out his courses. He's done 3 already.)

And of course, big ups to Sergeant D of Metalsucks and Stuff You Will Hate. He's shown me some love before and the guy is a fucking slamhound like no other. Safe to say without him I probably wouldn't be into this stuff.
