Riot’s Revelation: Transcending Obscurity Records ‘Label Sampler 2018’ [Stream + NYP Item]

(By Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker, Senior Writer/Journalist, RiffRelevant.com)

The latest installment of Riot’s Revelation brings us face-to-face, uh, ear to speaker, with an incredible compilation of music.  It comes from one of planet Earth’s premiere labels specializing in sonic savagery, Transcending Obscurity Records.

The label has amassed one massive, 36-song undertaking entitled “Label Sampler 2018” and it is a stunning offering, indeed.  The responsible parties at T.O.R. even broke things down into segments based on the genre-style of the bands.  You have:

Tracks 1 – 15: DEATH METAL ALLIANCE
Tracks 16 – 20: BLACK METAL HORDE
Tracks 21 – 29: DOOM METAL ENCHANTMENT
Tracks 30 – 36: EXPERIMENTAL MADNESS

Nice groupings, huh? Truthfully, it is nothing when compared to the bands themselves that were collected for this gift.  It was insanity on my part to attempt to link them all to this article, but here it is, a complete rundown of who and which song you get from them….
