Svartidauði - The Perpetual Nothing

The thread that popped up about this band got me curious, and... holy shit. Can anyone recommend me some stuff similar to this? (Obvious or not, it doesn't matter)

Verdunkeln - Die Letze Legion

It's hard to say about music like this, which might grow on you, but I think this is really awful right now. I mean seriously?

eh, I can see they had ideas in mind - I just am not grabbed by this at all.

Shrinebuilder - Shrinebuilder

Wish we could get a sequel to this.


I remember that I was really liking this one when it came out. Strangely enough I didn't care much for Kelly's vocals on it. They were kind of misplaced, and too "heavy". And I am saying this as a huge Neurosis fan. Wish he had a different approach to the vocals on this one. Great record none the less. And they did record a follow up, it just haven't been released yet. Probably because of them being busy with the other bands touring/recording.

Esoteric - Circle

A couple of glasses of a delicious port, and an evening alone at home, and this song. Contentment defined.

That song is too good. One of Esoteric's best.

Spastic Ink - Mosquito Brain Surgery

Ron Jarzombek and his brother are GODS and 'Ink Complete' is one of the greatest progressive metal albums of all time. 'Nuff said.

This is the album by Jarzombek, I think. Blotted Science and his solo stuff is good, sure, but Ink Complete is where it's at, and I can't imagine he'll ever top this album, although he's certainly giving it his all! It's not just the guitars, either - the bass and the drums more than fill the criteria of what he's trying to achieve.

Ouroboros - Glorification of Man

Nice blend of Technical musicianship and intense riffs. Deep emotion and atmosphere too.

For sure. Haven't listened to this one in a bit but it's certainly a nice album. The band is good live, too, if you ever get a chance to see them.

Septicflesh - Esoptron

First listen of this one, and I like it. I can't tell if I prefer this one or Mystic Places of Dawn just yet, but more listens of both will reveal that. For now, I am really digging Septicflesh's early output, since for the longest time I've been listening to their later stuff like Communion.

That album is so fucking good. Seriously one of the major long lost classics of 90's rock. Absolutely perfect from start to finish.

Just now finishing up a listen to Helstar's Nosferatu. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiifffffffffffffffffffs!

"Csejthe" -
Mordor

One of the few good Funeral Doom bands- but they aren't really comparable to Catacombs, Thergothon, or Mournful Congregation. Really creepy, slow Industrial sounding bits add a nice touch as well.

Excellent black metal. Definitely a firm favourite record this one.

Tukaaria - "Memories of an Extinct Race"

I only recently discovered this band, but now the face I make whenever listening to them is basically "(づ。◕‿‿◕。)づ". Basically everything I love in black metal - punky rhythms and astonishingly beautiful melodies. Music this good is a big reason why I'm happy with life.

^Tukaaria are excellent.

Bathory - Flash of the Silverhammer

Always good to wake up and listen to Bathory as the start of my day

All excellent bands, but I think I prefer Mordor over Catacombs.

np: Forgotten Woods - Overmots Pris
So fucking chilly right now, perfect time to listen to this album

Masterplan - The Game

I'm convinced, this kind of music will be the death of PM as we know it. So bland and unimaginative.

Satan - Tears of Blood

Just got 'Life Sentence' this morning, and I hear what all the praise is about. Yet another great 2013 release, and probably in the top 10 albums of the year.

Is that one before or after You'd Prefer An Astronaut? Hum's guitar tone is so thick and heavy. It's like Failure on steroids!

I listened to Thergothon's Stream from the Heavens for the first time today and holy shit... it's amazing! I bought it a few months back and since then it's been sitting on the shelf. Until today, that is. The guitars and bass are absolutely crushing! My only complaint is the snare, which sounds like a cardboard box full of pebbles!

It's their last album. As much as I love You'd Prefer an Astronaut, that album really has nothing on Downward is Heavenward. The former is a really great album full of wonderful songwriting and performances, but the latter is an utter masterpiece. Hmm..trying to think of a non-controversial metal parallel...

Imagine if Varg had followed up the Burzum debut with a single album that had all of the best bits of Det som engang var, Hvis lyset tar oss and Filosofem all rolled into a magically cohesive vision, then immediately put an end to the project.

Griffin - Poseidon Society

I went several years loving the S/T without hearing Protectors of the Lair because of a general sophomore-slump consensus, and on first impression I feel confident in saying they were all wrong. Still has all the fantasy imagery and USPM tropes, just applied a bit more violently.

Ravenous blackened death metal. Beastly album from a monster band.

Sepultura 'Spit' from 'Under A Pale Grey Sky' live in Brixton 1996

I don't want to imagine the hellpit they create when guitars rages after the bass-intro... :headbang:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8zgZRFbBqw

(not from Brixton ok, very rare to find on video)

Wrathprayer - From the Depths of the Phlegethon

This album is a fucking savage, murderous beast. Cavernous and raw to the point of outright acidic, HUGE riffs and atmosphere. Awesome, awesome, awesome stuff.

Antigama - Meteor

This is really good! Particularly the second half of the album, when the band seems to include a few more eccentricities. I guess it's, overall, a little more straightforward than their last two albums, but it's definitely still the grind I enjoy from Antigama. Good addition to the 2013 catalogue.

WTF DID I JUST LISTEN TO? But it was not bad at all, just something the elitists would not even touch.
