Sworn - Alleviation

From one of the few melodic death metal albums I enjoy, not sure if not more bm than mdm. Their second album is crap though.

Mitochondrion - ...Into the Pit of Babel

An epic monster of grinding and aggressive death/black metal. What a great track. Spent most of the workday listening to a cocktail of Mitochondrion, Portal, and Antediluvian. By the end of the day, I felt exhausted. Awesome. I was just in the mood for this type of stuff today.

Anaal Nathrakh - Of Fire, and Fucking Pigs, off Vanitas

Still my favorite song off the new album, though I got no absolutely problems with it. It beats the crap out of Passion, and it can easily look at Hell is Empty in the eye without flinching even a bit.

Listening to the new Car Bomb on a whim. Sounds pretty good. It's heavier and bottom-oriented than most mathcore (from what I've heard at least).

Ooh, there's a new one? I didn't even know. I liked Centralia so I'll have a look for this one.

Putrevore - Macabre Kingdom

More awesome material to satisfy my old school death metal lust. Definitely one of the best of its kind to be released this year.

I really want this one but they've got to release it on CD. :tongue:

Beyond Terror Beyond Grace - Dusk

Man, it's refreshing to see someone other than myself name-dropping this one all the time. :) One of my favourite albums of the year, for sure. Every song is a winner.

oogboog wrote:
Chimaira - Nothing Remains

That's also a good album. Chimaira were really peaking by that point, and while I was disappointed with their latest effort I do hope they can return to the great metalcore I know they can play.

Agave Maize - Thrones of Isolation

Bought this a long time ago but left the CD at a friend's house in Melbourne - oops! Anyway, listening to it for the first time now and I'm impressed. Straightforward Australian black metal but I quite like it so far. Great riffs and drumming that tries hard. Vocals are a little standard for black metal, but overall it's not too bad at all! Still not even half-way through so I hope this quality keeps up.

This really irritates me also. Seriously, just release it on CD. Or at least cassette, I'd eat that shit right up. :D

Expensive import LPs limited to 100 copies suck.

I think in time it will be released on CD. When it does I'll be all over it. I haven't heard the whole album but the bits I did hear were just awesome. For now, Binah, Undergang, and others will satisfy me. :)

Thy Art Is Murder-Shadow of Eternal Sin
im still trying to figure out if i should give a shit about these guys. I love the fast blast sections and the insane growls but out of no where the chugs are unleashed and a generic breakdown is used. Going to give their album a couple listens and make a decision.

Protip: start with The Adversary. I haven't listened to Hate in its entirety yet, but the two songs I tried were awful.

Emperor- Ye Entrancemperium

I understand the criticisms that come with this album. It's overblown, often times melodramatic, Ihsahn's vocals are quiet, but the wide-eyed seventeen year old in me that first heard this album six years ago still loves it. 1:03-1:22 is one of my favorite moments in metal. "Behold my coming!"

Sodom - Tapping the Vein

Ah, Sodom. You are so good. This is one of their best - a death/thrash masterpiece.

Cannibal Corpse - Evisceration Plague

I forgot how good this is. Torture is better, I think, but this is still one beast of an album. "Scalding Hail" is one of their best modern songs with a great riff, but the whole album is still quality. You know what to expect from Cannibal Corpse, for better or worse, but I like them and this one is good. Better than The Wretched Spawn, that's for sure. :P

Amebix - Nobody's Driving

I go through the occasional Amebix phase - I enjoy it, but it's not the kind of thing which is always on my list, y'know.

Behemoth - Apostasy

Now that I have no work (which I really really resent), I have all the time I never had to explore all these mega groups which I put off even touching before. I have discovered some I really, really love. I don't know how I feel about behemoth. The vocals make me kind of weary, but it's pretty decent.

Rata Blanca - Rompe el Hechizo, off Rata Blanca

Their debut is far better than their latter stuff. I wished they would've kept this rawer, more American sound instead of the Europowery flourishes they started to include after this.

Is that from the new album? I need to re-listen to it at some point, but I've not felt in an Iron Fire mood for a long time.

Just finished re-listening to/reviewing Jute Gyte - Senescence. I must say I recommend it.

On occasion I love me some Anthems, too. With Strength I Burn followed by The Wanderer is such a great 1-2 punch to end the album.


Enslaved - Roots of the Mountain

Balls deep into RIITTIIR and loving it. :)

Venom - God's Forsaken

You know, I think Cast in Stone might be an absurdly underrated album.

It's making more sense to me. Like all Neurosis albums, it just seems to get better with more listens.
