Hanker - They Are Gone

Amazing trad metal with some proggy songwriting - just a classic.

It's leaked!?

NP: Forefather - Steadfast

One of the very few decent 'folk metal' bands. All of the happy ones just sound dumb and most of the serious ones are boring.

Queued:

Nuclear Death - Carrion for Worm

Primal, primal savagery. If super-raw death metal (in the loose sense of the term) is your sort of thing, then you probably know ND already but if you don't, they're well worth checking out.

Sodom - Epitome of Torture

Wasn't impressed first time around. Production was far too modern for my tastes. Hopefully it gets better.

Autopsy - The Headless Ritual

Can't stop listening to this one. Awesome album.

Sounds like what Heartwork should have been. Compared to what you listen today, it's not really impressive but it's nice to see that the guys at least are not doing that pile of excrement Swansong was. I hope the rest of the album is like this or even more brutal.

Warhead - The Lost Self and Beating Heart EP

Warhead takes the intensity of bands like Gauze, Lip Cream, and G.I.S.M., and goes even farther with it. Truly a band to be reckoned with.

Just listened to the Morrowind Soundtrack (I know, it's awesome, huh!?).

Now I'm onto Brant Bjork - Jalamanta

Groove the fuck on, ladies and gentlemen.

That soundtrack is one of my favorite things ever! I was actually really happy that they included some of the Morrowind music in Skyrim. Especially when you travel to Solstheim.

An easy contender for one of my 10 favorite doom metal songs.

That track was awesome. Much more groove oriented than I expected. Have you listened to the rest of the album?

It's a really cool album, glad to see you guys are liking it. I hope they keep on doing more creative stuff with that formula - there's a lot of untapped potential with it, much more samples and different types of music they could use. I think they will be really good if they keep it up.

Paysage d'hiver - Offenbarung. Really atmospheric, almost 'epic' track in a way... Digging it, on my second listen. Interesting and powerful music, highly recommended to anyone who enjoys bm, although a little repetitive at times (at least apparently, but maybe it is just me).

NP: Christian Death - Only Theatre of Pain

Classic goth album, certainly up there with Floodland.

Queued:

Naked City - Grand Guignol

I'm a much bigger fan of Zorn's wild free-jazzy stuff so I tend to skip the first few tracks on this but the rest is a treat.

Adorior - Author of Incest

Hyper-aggressive blackened death metal. The best parallel I can immediately think of is a less poppy version of Anaal Nathrakh. A very good album.

Antediluvian - the new album

I wasn't as huge a fan of 'Through the Cervix...' as many others seemed to be but such a hyped band are certainly worth checking out the new album of. Wasn't really listening first time I played it.

That's an awesome album, man. Romeo's Distress has some of my favorite guitar lines! (Most notably the "gazey" lead during the chorus)

Esoteric - The Pernicious Enigma

The antithesis of easy listening. This is so claustrophobic and suffocating, I can hardly breathe. What a fucking masterpiece.

Votum - Harvest Moon

I love this album so much, I need to be in the right mood for it because it's bloody huge, but if I am it's wonderful. This album is everything I believe progressive metal should be about: great songwriting, smart complexity, some technicality, and on top of everything: atmosphere.

Carbon Based Lifeforms- Interloper (LP). Not remotely metal but beautiful IDM/ambient. Perfect sound.

Primordial - Redemption at the Puritan's Hand

I love this band. Powerful, primordial, organic, and definitely original. Their live gig had an unexpected character, and wasn't quite what I expected, but in any case, it was a very enjoyable occasion. I need to find the two missing albums.

If you don't yet know Primordial, go to YouTube and remedy that. This is the best thing ever from Ireland. And yes, that includes Guinness and all of their whiskies.

Aura Noir - Sons of Hades

I've been on quite an Aura Noir kick lately - black thrash in general in fact. Consequently, this shall be the first album of the afternoon.

I agree with you on everything but the Guinness. :-P There's far better stouts out there.

Master - And on the seventh day god created...

I like it more than I would expect for something so repetitive and droning.

Edit: Their version of "America the Beautiful" is pretty amusing though XD

Jute Gyte - Discontinuities

Found this in the download thread, and I am sure glad I did. This is a brilliant album to say the least. Autothrall was pretty accurate when he called it a one man Sonic Youth, but with Burzumic influence.

Give it time. I was in the same boat as you when I first bought it, but now I love it. I would recommend listening to it with headphones on a lower volume so you can pick out the intricacies, if you aren't already. When I listen to it in my car it just makes absolutely no sense. Speaking of which...

Antediluvian- Nuclear Crucifixion (Turning the Spear Inward)

What a title.

On the Seventh Day... is really solid, but I've always been of the opinion that Master are a band who have gotten better and better with time; Try "Slaves to Society", "The Spirit of the West" - in fact, any of their later work, for some really solid, riff-heavy goodness.

NP: Evile - Tomb

Never have I experienced a band who manage to remain so consistently reasonable. It's the thrash equivalent of plain pasta.

Whips/Chains - Master/Slave

Features Ryan Patterson (Coliseum) on vox/guitar, Will Allard (Xerxes) on bass/vox, and Ben Sears (Black God) on drums. It's a s/sided 12" of sludgy, thrashing hardcore with howling guitars and dredging bass. Truly a force to be reckoned with!
