Wait, a new hobbs album? Serious?
I always dug Dreadnaught but I haven't checked out their new one. Same goes for destroyer 666. Allegiance from Perth were awesome back in the day. Love alchemist, mortal sin, armoured angel as well, all sadly split.
Have you checked out The Levitation Hex? A mix of alchemist and alarum members.
If you dig thrash check out Hellbringer, Harlott and In Malice's Wake
Dreadnaught, there's a blast from the past. I used to really like them too.
Does anyone remember Segression? Saw them as support quite a few times, I was really into them. Just checked them on Spotify and they appear to still be going.
Also saw these guys as support once. Can not remember who for, maybe Disturbed? The lead singer is wheel chair bound and kicked ass. Not really metal but I loved this song.
