Best Metal Newcomers Of 2013 Explored, Part 2

Each year in our annual metal awards we take a look at the best “newcomers” – those bands that released debut full-lengths worth your time.

To help get you acquainted with the best new talent releasing albums you may have missed, we’ll be looking at each of the bands nominated for the “best newcomer” category by our staff. Today, writer Rex_84 covers Vista Chino, The Resistance, Raven Lord, Skan, and Lord Dying. Here's what he had to say:

Thanks to Facebook and local venues, there was hardly a day that went by without receiving a flyer or like request on an unfamiliar band. Bands from around the globe injected new ideas into sounds we know well. In the end, however, my list mostly consists of new bands containing members from the artists I've gotten to know and love through my years as a heavy metal fan.

Vista Chino

Vista Chino rose from the ashes of Kyuss Lives when former Kyuss guitar Josh Homme and bassist Scott Reeder sued the band for "trademark infringement and consumer fraud." Although no longer containing the "Kyuss" in their name, Brant Bjork easily filled Josh Homme's shoes. Vista Chino's debut "Peace" is the fuzzy, desert rock album Kyuss fans have long for since the group disbanded nearly twenty years ago.

The Resistance Unveils New "Scars" Album

Swedish metal collective The Resistance will unleash a full-length debut on May 14th in North America. The track listing is available below, and the following press release was issued about the album:

"Fittingly titled 'Scars,' the ravaging 12-track follow-up to the last year’s Rise From Treason teaser EP (reviewed here) is an old-school death metal flashback that brings listeners to a time when bands like Entombed, Grave and Dismember proved how insanely brutal yet immensely captivating and technically adept extreme music can be.

"With a lineup as heavy as their musical adventure, The Resistance features within its ranks some of Scandinavia’s most esteemed musicians with In Flames’ founder (and main songwriter until his departure in 2010) Jesper Strömblad on guitar alongside second guitarist Glenn Ljungström (ex-In Flames), vocalist Marco Aro (ex-The Haunted, Facedown) and drummer Chris Barkensjö (ex-Kaamos, ex-Repugnant)."

“If you listen to Entombed's Left Hand Path today, it still blows everything away. And it's over 20 years old,” says Strömblad, the main musical force behind Stockholm/Gothenburg based squad. As for the outcome of "Scars," Strömblad sums it up simply: “It’s just awesome death metal!”

01. Clearing The Slate
02. Your Demise
03. To The Death
