Exceptionally good - I was listening to it a minute ago. In fact, I'm skimming through the Dark Descent bandcamp on the basis that just about everything they put out is top notch.


Currently checking out Lvcifyre - Night Sea Sorcery.

The atmosphere is good, and I'm pleasantly surprised. I wasn't sure if this was going to be one of those legitimately good underground bands, or one of those ones which the grand council of underground-metal-hipsters simply decided was flavour of the month. Fortunately, it's legitimately good stuff.

The Chasm - Manifest My Intervention

Man, I miss having time to listen to these guys' albums in one sitting. Way too hard to find time anymore. Great riffs and momentum though - in my top five favorite DM albums ever.

Elan - Empty Apparitions

This is the worst black metal song I've ever heard. There's experimental, and there's terrible. This band is the latter. If I owned a full album from this guy I would review it, but I only own this one song from a compilation.

I'm actually going to post a link to this because it's so bad. Here you go, have fun.

Nevermind, the song actually isn't on YouTube. Probably because no one liked it.

Twisted Tower Dire - Firebird

This album 'Netherworlds' may be my favorite from these guys. Not as immediately catchy as Crest of the Martyrs, but I really dig the production and overall vibe. Could have left off 'No One Left to Blame', however.

Fallujah - The Flesh Prevails
Have typically been turned off by Techincal Death Metal especially with Deathcore influences, but these guys are something special. Shout out to Autothrall's review on this album, you sparked my interest.
Fantastic atmosphere in this album.

Solanum - Spheres of Time demo, 1998

Nice EP of atmospheric synth music arisen from the ashes of dungeon synth project Depressive Silence. Thanks to the Asmodian Coven blog for this.

Arghoslent - The Grenadier
I've always brushed these guys aside under the assumption that they're just a shitty bigot death metal band, but after finally being bored enough to check out Hornets, I really like some of these riffs. The lyrics can fuck off, (though admittedly they weren't as blatantly "I hate anyone that isn't as white as me" as I expected them to be) but there are melodies in some of these songs that give off a heavy Running Wild vibe. Definitely not gonna feel bad about torrenting their discography though..

Metalhead - Bringer of Evil

After listening to that dreadful new HammerFall album, I needed a heavy dose of real metal. This is actually fun stuff even if there's absolutely no originality. I like it.

Nokturnal Mortum - Goat Horns

I had previously only listened to their latest album, Voice of Steel, but this material is fantastic. I can see why Caladan Brood would be influenced by this material.

Every Alice album is great. Constrictor and Trash included!

NP: Sadus - Torture

I never jumped on the Sadus bandwagon for Swallowed In Black, but Illusions is awesome. Crazy fast ripping stuff.

Anathema - Ariel

The new album was a bit of a dud. Except for this song. Which is incredible.

Kreator - Reflection

Never understood the hate for Mille's vocals on this album, they're in my not so humble opinion the best from the entire Kreator discography, I mean, just how pissed can you sound?

Cannibal Corpse - High Velocity Impact Spatter

This song is so brutal. Definitely sounds like a Pat song (no idea if it is though).

I had never thought that CF are influenced by them, but maybe you have a point, I should check Goat Horns again, so many years without listening to it!

Vinterriket-Landmannalaugar

A niece ambient track from his Icelandic influenced album.

Yeah, I enjoyed that album. I have a liking for French speaking Black Metal bands.

NP : Caverne - Chants des Héros Oubliés

Crushed recommended these guys a short while ago for fans of the Canadian band Ephemer, just remembered to check them out. He hit the nail dead on the head. This is quite incredible stuff.

Blut Aus Nord/P.H.O.B.O.S. - Triunity

Only just in the middle of the BAN portion thus far. Definitely liking this a lot, some massive riffs going on here. I can't say I like the live drummer as much, partially due to the kinda flat production but also the inhuman quality of the programming was always a special part of their sound. I guess the switch was inevitable in a way, even if only for experimentation's sake, but I do hope they won't abandon the programmed work entirely from here on.

"Mirkwood Sonnet" by Thy Catafalque

Microcosmos is so much more immersive than anything else Thy Catafalque has made that I don't want to leave it behind sometimes. Such a beautiful atmosphere.

Type O Negative - "All Hallows Eve" from World Coming Down

Went to the dollar store today and it looked like Halloween already with all the decorations out on display. Put me in a very Type O-esque mood.

Nice work man, and cheers! I have taken a real liking to these guys. Still waiting for my copy of the second demo to arrive...

Acephalix - Deathless Master

Simple, down tuned heavy Swedeath inspired death/crust. Pretty damn good stuff really - no punched pulled, with hearts on their sleeves.

Half way through the new Dark Fortress. Song currently playing is The Deep. Very cool brooding acoustic based track.

NP: Marduk - Serpent Sermon

This whole album is just amazing, and this particular song has a perfect example of a chorus done well in metal. Also the main riff kicks your ass and spills your coffee...

Saint Vitus - War Is Our Destiny

Great to wake up to Vitus. Fuzzy, groovy old school doom - the way it should be, none of this Pallbearer nonsense.

Future Tense by Sanctuary. Very short lived band but amazing Id say. Their 2 albums are among Heavy Metals greatest 1-2 Punch. First post!
