A lot less mainstream Alternative Rock and the post-Hardcore is absent as well in their latest release. Not to shabby for DIY. The Bands name is Polarbeers and this is their 2011 EP titled Tetris.

A lot of Hype coming off this Band lately. The Saint James Society has only a couple songs out there so far but damn, they are pretty good. They play a Psychedelic mellow vibe that draws the listener in from the very start. I found two songs that are FREE downloads so check them out.
Ballad of the White Horse
Of Silver and Gold

Town Portal play instrumental post math rock ala Pelican or Russian Circles. Really not to much more to say other than I think you should grab it now.
This isn't heavy or bone crushing but still something nice to mellow out to. As the title suggests, it's lo-fi garage rock but does have a bit of a "pop" to the vocals.

"What we have here from Trebuchet on their debut release ‘Stick It In' is a solid gold rock album. It may be a self-recorded demo, courtesy of a Tascam 4-track, but it has to be heard to be believed, it's a like a lost classic from the 70s.
In true AC/DC fashion, whom Trebuchet are deeply indebted to, the songs start with a riff, a riff so simple you can't help but wonder why it's never been used before. The cap is well and truly doffed.
Lyrically, the traditional subjects of sex, partying, rebellious violence, mythology and combinations thereof are all covered, so you will find yourself singing along to these anthems in no time at all. That's the beauty of it, it's loud, it's dumb and it's simple. There are no subtle dynamics, you don't need to stroke your chin to appreciate the wonders within, you won't miss anything anyway, it does what it says on the tin. ‘Party Like Crazy', ‘Let It Rock'. ‘Give Me Rock And Roll' I think you get the gist
All you need to know is, "When is the guitar solo?" and "Will it be over a verse or a chorus?". Then you can get on with the serious business of cranking the stereo, splaying those legs, busting out the air guitar, headbanging and punching in the air.
Limited to 33 copies, this CD comes in a natural recycled card sleeve, a parchment insert with credits and a righteous bio written by Granville Theroux, with art and design by Ben Aucott, and all topped off with a red wax seal.
Those of you who buy the CD will be treated to a live album, recorded at BOA 2009, and the demos for the abandoned 2nd album 'Stateside."

"Formed in 2011 with intention of turning out some thick riff driven tunes to shake your head to, firmly rock at heart but taking in other strands, alt, post, stoner, metal we arrive at just doing our own thing."

So this dude Steven has a Band called Goatmuff out of Australia and there's a couple of tunes for FREE download that are pretty slick and worth mentioning. The first track is called Wizard Beard Worship which has this Riff that will kick you in the dick and leave you lying there for six minutes wondering if you want to have a second go at it or three... The other song is called Stoned As An Athiest In Jerusalem. That one will probably leave you wondering why you left the first one because it's definitely not a nut kicker but pretty good all the same.

"Local Love Fest is an annual event in Madison, WI where participating local bands show their appreciation for their music scene by putting together a set's worth of their favorite local songs and perform them live. The event also revolves around the release of a special limited edition compilation CD which is only made available at the shows, and features exclusive tracks from Madison bands covering a local song of their choosing. The compilation is called a "Mix Tape" in reference to the old practice of dubbing a cassette filled with special meaningful songs to share with one's personal love interest, and it is in this spirit that LLF was founded. Here is the first LLF compilation in it's entirety: Local Love Fest - Mix Tape 2011."

Old Man Lizard have great tone. Really. Bands in these genre's don't use sounds like this anymore. Kind of reminiscent of Mule in my opinion. Not their music but that tone. More Sludgy with a little Hardcore maybe thrown in for good measure. Yeah these guys kick some Royal Ass.

The fourth chapter of the trip, a journey through the cosmos, the heavy psych compilation made in Italy!
Aptly distributed by Perkele.it magazine, DESERT SOUND Vol. IV – IN THE MOUTH OF FUZZ packs 25 combustive cuts from the smoke filled scene defined by hot rock'n'roll, chuggin' guitars, dirty fuzz, psychedelic visions, feedback and cowbell fills. A volcanic trip deep into the Italian heavy stoner psycho doom panorama, with tracks that range straight out of power hittin' stonerville, to the psychedelic side, as well as the doom mantras and spacey pipe dreams action.
DS Vol. IV - IN THE MOUTH OF FUZZ opens with the mighty Pater Nembrot. The intro cut sets the stage for the entire adventurous set, which includes tracks from – among others – Zippo (feat. Ben Ward from Orange "fuckin'!" Goblin), Space Paranoids, Black Capricorn, Cannibal Movie, Da Captain Trips, and Black Rainbows.
The album is available as a free digital download (MP3 320 kbps and .Iso file for your personal CD) with a deluxe trippy artwork and packaging by ExLab, based on the original paintings of late Renaissance Italian visionary painter and illustrator Jacopo Ligozzi."

"Damned Holy Rollers are a rock trio from Saint Louis, MO. They live to rock, drink, and steal your daughters and wives."
"From the Nexus of the universe they hail. Through the Wastelands they traveled. The Great Wind brought them and the Great Wind will take them away. They have broke the Beams and chased the Giants. They are not human but are Gods own prototypes. Too weird to live, and too rare to die. They bring screaming fire from their mouths, and electric sex from their fingertips. All that stand in their way are consumed and forgotten. Many have come before and after, but none can hold a candle to their awesome power. They live to Rock, and Rock to live. Their tales are legends and their legend will shatter the world."

“At points, Midnight Snakes conjures up submerged melancholy — a combination of underwater dementia and landlocked lust. At others, it resembles an adrenaline-fueled, peyote-induced roadtrip through the Mexican desert in a '70 AMC Rebel, windows down and throttle wide open, undertaken from the discomfort of a long-since worn out basement couch...Imagine if Procul Harum had spent time in the desert listening to scratchy Tom Waits records while downing energy drinks and psychotropics. Additional psychotropics, anyway.” ~ (Smile Politely)

Like the guitar tone the live vibe on this record is thick, this is a real band playing real songs in a basement studio with minimal overdubs. Stubb contains 8 modern salutes to the early 70s with lyrical themes covering love, loss, the open road, women and the powerful force of nature.
This is much more than just a one dimensional record though. 'Crying River' featuring Malin Dahlgren from Swedish folk duo Polly Tones and the acoustic 'Crosses You Bear' provide contrast to the full on valve abuse of songs like 'Hard Hearted Woman' and 'Scale the Mountain'. For the most part however, this is a power trio doing what a power trio does best; warm fuzzy guitars, bass heavy songs, frantic solos and an excessive use of wah-wah.
After touring the UK and Germany with 70s rock preservationists Stone Axe in April 2011 Tony Reed (Stone Axe, Mos Generator) was hired for the job of mixing and mastering. Reed, who has recently finished recording the new St Vitus record, was the perfect man for the job having seen the band live many times and whose own band Stone Axe shares a similar musical heritage.
Superhot Records release number zero zero one will appeal to fans of Cream, Taste, Graveyard, The Jimi Hendrix Experience. "
"Stubb build on the foundations laid down by the pioneers of the 60s and 70s and continue the journey of the power trio through the 21st Century. Psychedelic sounds, blues rock and frantic solos are fused together as Stubb create classic heavy rock and roll songs.
On 6th February 2012 the band's debut self titled album will be released on Superhot Record."

"Having perfected the controlled, well-structured output on Dividual – a relentless musical assault of tightness and timing - the band felt an urge to tackle the song-writing in a completely different way. Loosing up, Letting go. Trying to make the impossible, possible by making complex music flow in a more free form. After a swift and spontaneous writing-process, 4 tracks were ready to be captured.
Obstacles teamed up with their friend Sune Kaarsberg to begin the recordings of Oscillate in their studio. This was a very dynamic process filled with experiments in sound and form. The result is breathtaking. Like being caught in a beautiful storm where chaos and energy reigns.
While still somewhat futuristic in its aesthetics, Oscillate can also be considered a nod back to a hazy forgotten past, paying homage to legends of prog-rock and jazz-fusion whilst still maintaining the punchiness and vigor of their previous releases."

"Lord 13 were formed in 1999 by Dee (bass), Costas (drums), Jim (vocals, guitars) and John (guitars). Shortly after their first few lives they made a name for themselves as a high energy, live, rock band.
They circulated their first demo in 2000 entitled “Embrace”. From this demo they released their own videoclip “Ball Of Pain” which was aired on TV for a number of years!
Two years later, 2002, they released their second demo titled “Hell Ride”.Lord 13 represent the heavy, psychedelic rock scene of the new millennium!
In the mean time Lord 13 formed their own label and production company, “FASTER LOUDER” and they recorded their debut album in the summer of 2004.
And in the year of 2005 they organized the 1st summer rock music festival on the island of Antiparos with a 24 band three day blow-out! A huge success and rock ‘n roll party uniting all of the current major Greek bands under one banner!
…and finally in December 2006 released the self titled album “Lord 13” (which received super reviews from the critics of Metal Hammer, Greece, Stonerrock.com, monolith.gr) which is accompanied by the band’s second video clip “Bad Water Booze”, produced by Faster Louder directed (again) by Annabelle Aronis and shot in Mavrovouni in the Pelopponese, Southern Greece of the summer of 2006.
Through out the years Lord 13 have spread their music to the masses with electric, energetic and ecstatic live performances that have made their mark in the rock scene.
They have played support gigs for many visiting bands here in Athens such as Hawkwind, Nebula, Orange Goblin, Cathedral, Los Natas, Kayser, Eight Hands 4Kali, Great Coven and lives all over Greece and Europe .
In 2011 the new album “2013” (with guest vocals by Big Ben Ward) will be out on vinyl and cd, It is promoted by the new video clip ”Get You High”.
The band is currently working on two new works: An acoustic album with friends and family guesting on vocals and a full on electric heavy space blowout of an album!

"Disguised as Birds was born in 2004 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Although Disguised as Birds’ power indie rock sound tends to have a lot of dreamy, shimmering, jammy qualities, it regularly returns to explosively heavy rock bombast that puts their overall approach on grounds close to those of Shiner, Regulator Watts, Jawbox, Shipping News, Juno, etc. Still, despite the artsy leanings, Disguised as Birds unquestionably has the vibe of a classic rock band. In spirit (if not in incessant riffing) they pack a great deal of SOUL into every measure of every tune.
Still, Disguised as Birds can be dubbed nothing but original. They have formed a ridiculous amount of musical telepathy and toghetherness that is rare for an indie band. Originally conceived as a power trio (Kristopher Endicott: guitar/vocals, Tony Ciske; bass, and Christopher Bongers; drums), Disguised as Birds rehearsed and played out in and around the Midwest for a year before recording a full length record with Shane Hochstetler (CALL ME LIGHTNING) in 2005. Looking to recreate the record’s layered vocal harmonies live, the band recruited Chris Chuzles as a second vocalist - just in time to sing on five of the self-titled album’s tracks. Chris Bongers then moved to Madrid, Spain to play with punk-rock band Los Bultacos, so the Birds added Milwaukee ace drummer Kevin DeMars to the fold.
Disguised as Birds have a loose and powerful live sound. Influenced by all things rock and roll, art, and the often cold and bleak environment in which they live; this is a band that can pummel, sprint, or soar."
