So there's a 5 week delay between PPS Metal Facebook and Theocracy's Ultimate Metal Forum?
Honestly, if you're not into the whole Facebook scene, and you're just looking to follow interest-based info, then try Twitter instead. Facebook is great for two-way connections between friends. Twitter is great for one-way following of people/accounts that post information you care about (like our genres of metal). Also, you can check anyone's Twitter page without a Twitter account, which is not the case for Facebook - you pretty much need to be a member.

I post new stuff every single day on my PPS Metal pages, but I'm sure most people don't want me to flood the forum with them, so I only post something here if it seems particular relevant, like Ascension did

Dragon Force just released a new album, The Power Within. I'm not a big fan, but it ain't bad and it qualifies as new 2012 power metal.

The one I'm really looking forward to is Diablo Swing Orchestra's 3rd album, Pandora's Piņata, due next month. I'm not sure how to classify this band. You'll either love or hate 'em, there really isn't a middle ground.

A Youtube commenter describes DSO as "Bizzaro World Nightwish" and that's as fit a description as any.

Diablo Swing Orchestra, Vodka Inferno

I just discovered this band today and WOW am I glad I did! Australian prog metal band Teramaze just released their fourth album Anhedonia. Check out the title track:


Nightmare Records is their North American distributor. I've been pounding repeat on this song all day!

Sounds really cool, but I'd love to hear some keys in there.

Ehh, they're more thrash metal than anything else. I personally don't think they'd fit.

Sabaton comes out with their new album next week. Carolus Rex covers the history of the Swedish Empire and they are releasing it in both English and Swedish. If you're not into Sabaton, it's time to check them out. These guys have really rocketed up the power metal hierarchy in the last few years, for good reason. They are quickly becoming one of the best bands out there. They put an on incredible live show (I just saw them last night in St. Paul). Here's the single Carolus Rex from the new album (the song is about King Charles XII of Swedish aka Carolus Rex in Latin):


That chorus is killing me!

I just bought the Teramaze CD from Lance King a few nights ago. I'll be giving it its inaugural spin today! I hope it's as good as that one song.

Live Naiad, Underneath, and Still of the Night, baby! THANK YOU TARJA!!!!!

I wonder how Antreroom of Death will hold up live though.

Nightmare Records is their North American distributor. I've been pounding repeat on this song all day!
I have their albums "Doxology", which is thrash metal, and "Tears to dust", a very good melodic metal album with progressive elements I bought in the late 90s.
I love their melodic approach much more than the thrash. It seems their new album is a mix of both. In the clips from that album I find things I really like, but also things I don't.

Thanks for posting this band - it sounds very good, I'll have to take a deeper listen to them. It's a pity that Fabio Lione doesn't sing duets with the main vocalist on all the songs...

I write for a site dedicated entirely to the purpose of keeping people updated on the latest melodic metal (Which encompasses the three subgenres you just mentioned) as well as doing extensive reviews of the discographies of more famous bands.
www.blackwindmetal.com
We had the first review of Theocracies' newest album on the web, and someone just posted the interview I did with Matt in another thread. As far as what I'VE enjoyed this year, for progressive rock/metal, the new Adramelch was fantastic, I quite enjoyed the new Suspyre, though apparently I'm in the minority there, the OSI was excellent, as was Status Minor. Mirrormaze released a great album, and if you're into progressive thrash I have a review of Teramaze's newest album that should be up within the next week or so. Lord of Mushrooms released a pretty cool album of progressive metal with Gus Monsanto on vocals, I enjoyed that.
Read the site, you won't be disappointed.

Suspyre blew me away the first time I heard them. I need to take a deeper look into their material.
