Acoustic Wizard - Saturnine

I'm not usually one for cover-bands, but this is simply excellent;

Artificial Brain- Worm Harvester

Fucking A' man. Killer album. I'm actually kind of surprised by it. It's got an obvious Gorguts/Ulcerate/Flourishing type vibe, but there is a lot of Suffocation and Demilich too. A lot more Suffocation than I thought, even if the cover art is very Dan Seagrave. Digging the hell out of this record.

I don't think I've ever went into the J-pop deep-end (I do like Perfume though), but I do like a lot of J-rock/J-pop hybrids. I-RabBits, 1000say, and Zwei I like a lot.

I've never gone full Jpop either, but there are plenty of poppy Jrock bands that I've liked.

Quote:
Onmyo-Za is my favorite band at the moment. They're pretty much the reason why I started focusing 100% on Japanese music. Thanks to last.fm, they led to Light Bringer, then Aldious, Cyntia, Destrose, Mary's Blood, and so on. Aside from Galneryus, nearly everything I listened to for half a year was Japanese and female fronted. That changed a bit when I got into MinstreliX (first vocalist is female though), Lightning, and Crying Machine.

I don't even remember how or why I started listening to Japanese music. I think it was because I clicked cool-looking cover art of some obscure prog rock band on youtube (Mr. Sirius). Then it just progressed from there. Anyways, I normally have sort of a balance in what I acquire. Usually about half Japanese and half Western music.

Quote:
Have you heard Albion before? They're an all-girl band who sound a bit like Light Bringer. Their upcoming album is one of my most anticipated albums this year (it should arrive in the mail early next week). Here's a PV:



Only complaint is the bass-drum sound, which is really loud and clicky. I think I'll just pretend that's the bass guitar. If you're wondering where the drummer is, she left the band after the recordings, but before the PV was shot. So they used her parts anyway. They shouldn't have any problems finding a replacement, considering how many female musicians are over there.

I liked that quite a bit. Maybe my ears are just bad, but I really can barely hear the bass-drum so I'm not really hearing your complaint too well.

Quote:
Indeed, that song is one of the best they've ever done. I was even more impressed that they pull it off flawlessly live too. Longing is one of their best instrumentals too - pure emotion and a perfect way to close off the album. Its kinda weird how a lot of their non-album tracks are really damn good too. "Metal Trigger" being one of my favorite songs by them (its the B-side on the "Hunting for Your Dream" single).

Even that djent-sounding track they did (I think it's called “Alastia” or something like that) sounds good.

Quote:
Yeah, that was pretty all over the place and weird. Definitely not bad though.

The vocalist reminded me of the guy from LeVia (or would that be the other way around). They're pretty much visual kei power metal formed by ex-時空海賊 Seven Seas members. Mind you, LeVia's vocalist sounded a bit like 時空海賊 Seven Seas's vocalist. I don't listen to too many visual kei bands, so maybe they all sound like that. The only other one who I played a PV from was Deathgaze (out of morbid curiousity). Wasn't bad though, pretty fast and more aggressive than expected.

I found this to be pretty neat - MinstreliX and Matenrou Opera's guitarist doing a live guitar cover of Angra's "Carry On".

Yeah, most of the visual kei bands' vocalists sound like that. That nasally voice is usually the default (I don't mind it though) on these bands for whatever reason. I listen to a few visual kei bands although they really can vary in sound. I power metal bands like to be visual kei a lot. I've also noticed that there's usually at least one member who looks significantly more girly than the rest.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_amp7Z-rRF0

Cool cover, by the way. Angra is, of course, another quality band.

Quote:
For me, its either technical or atmospheric/emotional (can't seem to combine the two very often). I generally dismiss Dream Theater clones as wank. Same with a lot of western neoclassical metal bands. I find most of that stuff really boring, yet the Japanese neoclassical metal bands are really good. And I find most power metal bands over there have neoclassical guitar work (Galneryus' influence, no doubt)

There's really not many straight-up progressive metal or shredding stuff I like either. I always like it blended with other stuff whether it's power, thrash, death metal or whatever it may be.

Quote:
I own that DVD, its a pretty nice show. Its kinda strange how on sites in Japan like HMV Japan and Amazon.jp, that DVD has pretty low fan-submitted ratings. Its like, if they can do better... fuuuuuck. Mind you, I think that's due to the setlist because they play Genesis in its entirety and there's some songs that should've been on it. I kinda wish it could've been 2 hours long or something.

The music is just too advanced for them :-P.


NP: Cynic – How Could I

This album is always a good listen. I kind of wish they would make hard stuff again, but I like their soft stuff too, so whatever.

This is just... Meh.
The only Black Metal left here is the vocals.


I think it's OK. The prog is decent, but those vocals don't really fit with the music.

Right now I'm blasting The Committee's Holodomar. Yum.

Ilbeltz - Maiñel Moxkortiyarena

Very interesting folk metal band mixing heavy metal and black metal with Basque folk. I really wish they had a better drum machine/program sound :(

Hate Eternal - Spiritual Holocaust

This song fucking slays. SO much going on in such a short track - twisted, heavy as fuck riffs, wild 'n' wicked leads and corrosive vocals. Perfect death metal! Pity their other albums failed to move me at all...

Ibai had to pay to some guy for programming the drums but, finally, he had to make almost all the work by himself anyway.
Yeah, that's a pity cause he could had better results using any programming software (like Drumkit from Hell, for example).

Heirs - Hunter

Interesting yet repetitive (in a good way) instrumental post-metal type stuff complete with theremin. Saw them live with Alcest in Melbourne a few years ago

I just fixed the lyrics on the MA page :) Got to listen to it multiple times in a row. Stuck in head for good, now.

I find that music usually has to be in the traditional rock format (vocals / guitars / bass/ drums) for me to like it (not always though, of course). Supreme catchiness coupled with great musician ship is something I appreciate. Probably why Light Bringer is my second favorite band at the moment.

Then it just progressed from there. Anyways, I normally have sort of a balance in what I acquire. Usually about half Japanese and half Western music.

It started for me when I randomly downloaded some Yousei Teikoku (was looking for female-fronted electrogoth). Come to think of it, at that time I was looking to take a break from metal, so maybe looking to Japan wasn't my most stellar idea :lol: Exist Trace was another semi-random download - "all-female visual kei" seemed too weird to pass up on, I ended up liking them a lot. Onmyo-Za I discovered by accident. I reached a point where I'd check out anything in Japanese lettering that would show up in Metal-Archives recently updated bands. I was actually looking for Ningen-Isu (they've been hyped around here for awhile), but I completely forgot their name and was clicking on any Japanese name to see if it was them. Clicked on Onmyo-Za instead, liked the band-picture and found the concept of the band interesting... liked Kishi Bojin's album cover and checked that one out. The rest is history. Essentially, I discovered my favorite band by sheer randomness :lol: I still haven't checked out Ningen-Isu yet (I was off by one Japanese letter :P), I probably should remedy that sometime.

Quote:
I liked that quite a bit. Maybe my ears are just bad, but I really can barely hear the bass-drum so I'm not really hearing your complaint too well.

Ah, you're lucky then. Maybe my ears are going nuts on me. Here's the album crossfade in case you didn't check it out. Its pretty much torture for me waiting for this to arrive in the mail.

Quote:
Even that djent-sounding track they did (I think it's called “Alastia” or something like that) sounds good.

I like that song as well - actually, that's one of the better EPs I own, all of it is great. I'd like to see Galneryus do a tech-death song as an experiment sometime. We all know Syu can do harsh vocals.

Quote:
Yeah, most of the visual kei bands' vocalists sound like that.

It seems common for a lot of male vocalists over there period. I was listening to a Spinchord song last night and Syu's vocals sounded similar to that as well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_amp7Z-rRF0

That song wasn't bad at all - better than a lot of pm I've heard over the last 5 years. I'm sure the imagery would put off 99% of all power metal fans though. Hell, this stuff is pretty far outside my comfort zone too. I guess this is pretty much a culture-clash and I'm assuming cross-dressing/androgynous appearances isn't a big deal over there. I guess music trumps all and if I like something enough, I'll overcome any imagery bias. Its funny, all-female visual kei bands like exist trace have members who look masculine (but one of their guitarists dresses hyper-feminine to contrast the other guitarist). Danger Gang is another all-girl one, but they're colorful as all hell. You know, the more I get into this stuff, they don't look that unusual anymore :lol: The contrast between their image and music is pretty funny because they're pretty abrasive and raw sounding.

Quote:
Cool cover, by the way. Angra is, of course, another quality band.

Cool, glad you liked it. If you haven't checked out MinstreliX yet, I definitely recommend them. They're one of the better power metal bands over there at the moment. It took some time for them to grow on me, but they're definitely worth it. I guess they have some similarities to Galneryus (neoclassical guitarwork and fairly technical), but are more in the Euro fantasy/sympho vein. They have some melodeath influences as well and they aren't afraid to mix things up stylistically.

The Goddess~La Liberte Guidant Le Peuple~ - straightforward power metal fare, but pretty good (it didn't blow me away initially though). Its strange how I didn't notice how good the solo was until like the 10th play or so.

Venus and Adonis - one of my favorite instrumental power metal songs ever, really nice guitarwork and guitar/keyboard interplay on this. Catchy as hell too.

Eternal Death Rave - one of their melodeath-ish ones, one of my faves by them too.

Quote:
There's really not many straight-up progressive metal or shredding stuff I like either. I always like it blended with other stuff whether it's power, thrash, death metal or whatever it may be.

Power/prog I like a lot because it takes the complexity and great musicianship of progressive metal and tightens up the songwriting & makes it catchy. Probably why Galneryus is one of my favorite bands at the moment - they're probably catchier than most power metal bands, yet they mop the floor with most prog-metal bands. One of the best live bands around too.

Dragon Eyes - "S/T"

Pretty cool symphonic power metal/melodeath hybrid.

Satyricon - Nemesis Dinvina

I revisit this album every couple of years to try to figure out why people love it so much. I mean it's good, but not really groundbreaking or particularly interesting. Some of the medieval folk melodies are neat I guess.

The Waitress in the Bar Orbiting Io by Thought Industry. They've completely abandoned their thrash (and metal for that matter) roots by this time, but good music is good music. Anyone that digs slightly proggy alternative rock would enjoy this.

Storm - Nordavind

folk/viking metal trio of fenriz, satyr and kari rueslatten. I love Isengard, and this is along those lines, but more viking and less BM. of the viking metal I've heard (not much), it's more minimal, immediate. it actually reminds me in places of non-metal like magma or koenjihyakkei, because of the unison, martial lines. really wish they'd have made a second record

Satyricon - Nemesis Dinvina
I revisit this album every couple of years to try to figure out why people love it so much. I mean it's good, but not really groundbreaking or particularly interesting. Some of the medieval folk melodies are neat I guess.

I enjoy the first 3 BM albums but (1996) Satyricon - Nemesis Divina gets boring quite easy.

Storm - Nordavind
folk/viking metal trio of fenriz, satyr and kari rueslatten. I love Isengard, and this is along those lines, but more viking and less BM. of the viking metal I've heard (not much), it's more minimal, immediate. it actually reminds me in places of non-metal like magma or koenjihyakkei, because of the unison, martial lines. really wish they'd have made a second record

Nice!

I just listened to (2013) Inquisition - Obscure Verses For The Multiverse while cleaning the car at the garage.

Skull Fist - Hour to Live

The new Skull Fist is very reasonable - no complaints here. The vocals are still incredibly weird; they almost sound auto-tuned, but it gives them a strange charm, I suppose.


That's on my to-check-out list. I've been spinning their first album and it rips!

Instead of feeding my recent thrash/heavy metal appetite, I'm listening to some stoner rock for a change.

Black Nasa - Hot Nut
Those riffs and the overall bluesy vibe is giving me a good kick. I love revisiting genres that I haven't listened to in quite a while (I'm talking of around 5-6 months).

Manilla Road - Playground Of The Damned

Been a while since I heard this one. Time to rectify that.

Same here! I think I'll play that one while I sort out my latest CD haul.
