If you like Those Poor Bastards I'd highly recommend checking out the album Munly & the Lee Lewis Harlots by the Munly & the Lee Lewis Harlots. It's a bit of a beast and far more polished and ambitious than anything TPBs have done, but it's easily one of the darkest albums I can think of in just messed up content. Songs like "Big Black Bull Comes Like a Caesar", "Another Song About Jesus, a Wedding Sheet, and a Bowie Knife", "Cassius Castrato the She-Male of the Men's Prison", "Goose Walking Over My Grave", and "Jacob Dumb" talk about some shit that even Nick Cave would be like "steady on mate".

It's a pretty choice album.

Niechęć
https://niechec.bandcamp.com/

The self titled Niechęć had really blown me away and I can't be satisfied with the relative lack of hype for the modern jazz heroes. The style is contemporary and totally original with a curtain of futuristic free jazz wrapped around massive walls of audio. Never straying too far from a highly consistent overall atmosphere yet still shuffling through disparate territories like kraut/post/noise rock and chaotic jazz freaks, yet it's always 100% compelling and impossibly replayable.


Helium Horse Fly
https://heliumhorsefly.bandcamp.com/

HHF insist on taking their music to the brink even though we discover along the way that the brink is quite distant, so they're indefinitely astounding. They sound like a chamber version Sonic Youth but not in the way SYR4 sounds. It's still rock to the bone but its sonic array is immeasurable.

Quote:
The 6 tracks listed on Hollowed depict a surreal, grotesque universe. Strange scenes are featured, in the far reaches of what defines our humanity. The calm is deceptive, the madness latent. Noise rock imbued with contemporary classical music, major cold burns come and pierce these landscapes, leaving irreversible alterations in their wake.

An album to listen to as a unique piece, as a polyptych, as a series of windows open onto a world to which we do not have all the keys, but which lets us glimpse at fascinating frescoes of unknown colors.

ESOCTRILIHUM
https://i-voidhangerrecords.bandcamp.com/album/inhu-ma

As far as I'm concerned, ESOCTRILIHUM is the top dog in modern metal. A one man band too, no less. That one man writes some of the most evocative, surreal, disorienting, shredtastic, atmospheric, and adept black/death metal that you'll ever hear. His two 2018 releases are already enough to define a reputation.


UGORY
https://ugory.bandcamp.com/

Ugory have a considerable output of highly interesting and textural music, which you can download for free from bandcamp. Their music is dynamic (though often quite loud) and the sonicscapes that surface from their blend of noise rock, psychedelic/krautrock, and sludge metal are pure bliss.


SubRosa
https://subrosausa.bandcamp.com/

SubRosa are more than deserving of their own esteem in respect to modern metal. There's a chance they could be my favorite doom metal band tbh. Their brand is unconventional and dramatic, pretty sludgy at times, and intertwined with a wide array of instrumentation, most notably their violin. For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages is a titanic masterpiece and highly recommended to anyone looking for crushing and captivating doom metal with an artistic bent.

Ventla
https://www.last.fm/music/Ventla

Pretty sure all their stuff can be downloaded from last.fm. Ventla has a massive offering of vaporous chillsynthpop/neo psychedelia/library music that is generally pleasant and always highly Japanese.


Nanuchka
https://open.spotify.com/album/3XML6oJRQITGZziehA0P2P

Yula Be'eri is one of my favorite musicians and vocalists. She's been in World/Inferno Friendship Society, and has another band called Yula and the eXtended Family. Nanuchka play a Mediterranean blend of dark cabaret with infectious rock undertones.

Kowloon Walled City
https://kowloonwalledcity.bandcamp.com/

Modern take on noise rock inspired sludge metal, but not exactly on the "fun" side like Karp or Melvins, at least not sonically. It's very dense and oppressive and there's also some post-metal influence. I recommend Gambling on the Richter Scale, heavy, raw, crush.


Monkey Plot
https://monkeyplot.bandcamp.com/

A stellar example of the journal title. Monkey Plot have done some post-rock colored free improv and really show the versatility of acoustic instruments.


F.E. Denning

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79Uak6d4Bp0

Hazy drone and ambient music from fuzz aficionados over at Posh Isolation, but with a touch of post-modern classical.


Giant Squid
https://giantsquid.bandcamp.com/

I consider Giant Squid a pretty significant force with respect to modern progressive music. Their music is aquatic and mysterious, always harrowing and beautiful, and they definitely made some stuff unlike anything before. Progressive doom metal isn't as rampant in the universe as it ought to be, listening to GS makes me wonder why. Plus the plethora of disparate yet highly subtle elements they draw from elsewhere, it all comes together for something of a melancholic and weirdly sludgy elegy of funeral doom rock. Metridium Fields is their best album.

Very much like Made Out of Babies which I saw you commented on earlier in this journal.
