Enslaved - RIITIIR

Finally giving my a copy it's first listen. When 'Thoughts Like Hammers' started I was thinking to myself that the production sounded miserable, but then I realized my headphones weren't all the way plugged in :durr:

I hate that!



Yeah the new Neurosis is quite fantastic. Reminds me of "Souls At Zero"/"Enemy Of The Sun" played through a "Given To The Rising" filter, with a wee bit of "A Sun That Never Sets" thrown in for good measure.

i just found out unearthly trance disbanded... is serpentine path the new unearthly trance... if so it lessens my despair they were one of my favorite bands and there debut album and demos are some of the best blackened doom i have heard.....


Yeah, sort of. The bassist and drummer in Serpentine Path were in Unearthly Trance before they disbanded. Plus throw in some Tim Bagshaw from he classic Electric Wizard lineup, and you have a hit.


Bongripper - Satan

Satan Worshipping Doom! What a great fucking album. This is probably my favorite track. Longform devil worship!

Neoplasmah - Sidereal Passage

I was finally able to write down a review for this one, it does deserve some attention. Winds Of Creation mixed with Angelcorpse and a few melodic leads thrown in the mix, really good stuff!

Suddenly decided to listen to Atheist again (it's been a long time). It was a good choice.

Blind Guardian - And Then There Was Silence 2011

I think they should have remixed instead of rerecorded this song. The original was really clogged and congested sounding, but that was more a fault of the horribly compressed production than anything else. This version strips away many of the layers the original song had and it comes out sounding neutered.

"The Head Of Henry Grey" -

Fucking big thanks to whomever posted this. I love that distempered Blackened Sludge/Crust whatever you call it. It rules.

Oh, man, I haven't heard this in ages. I've got this one on CD. I think I'll have to dig it out again and give it a listen. I'll read your review.

Cool band. They do something a little different in the tech-death scene, which is nice. What's going on with them? Seems like they've fallen off the face of the planet.

Empty Playground - Under Dead Skin

Not even the interlude tracks of someone walking between the tracks can detract from the awesomeness of Under Dead Skin. Some seriously catchy death metal with some industrial thrown in for good measure. A great debut album from these guys and I'm keen to hear some more if there is indeed any more albums in the works.

Binah - Hallucinating in Resurrecture

Holy ball-tearing christ this is fuckin' good. No reinvention of the wheel here, though they do indeed have a distinct personality of their own. This is massive, brooding and wonderfully insidious death metal, full of corrosive (and did I mention massive?) riff structures which all flow in a organic manner. The tasteful lead work is understated, and well utilised, and the almost hidden vocal work, ominously surfaces to deliver the horrid sermon. Damn impressive stuff.

I liked that album quite a bit too, very crushing.

Your descriptions are always really good. Have you thought of writing reviews? I think you'd nail them.

And I agree about Binah. Much like Undergang, they don't do anything new, but they manage to do it well. Hallucinating in Resurrecture needs more listens from me (only 2 so far), but I am impressed!

Thanks man, the thought has crossed my mind, and I believe it's about time I gave it a shot - specifically for some ep's and albums which don't have any on here yet, that I own. We'll see what happens...

I'd read them if you wrote them. :) I would like to review a few albums myself, but my reviewing confidence is in the negative.

Neoplasmah - Sidereal Passage

Thanks to androdion for mentioning this album! I'm giving it a listen now after a while of not hearing it. I agree with the review that the production is not the best, but in a way it gives this a more human feel. Still quite cool, though.

Earlier: Orgone - The Goliath
Majestic, one of a kind tech death with post-y tendencies.

Now: Anata - The Conductor's Departure
Love the riffs on this one. They're never too wanky as they vary things up with some heavier groove-ish moments.

Neoplasmah has fans in Australia??? Now that's what I'm talking about! :headbang: By the way, is that only what you agree with in the review? :p

Humanoid - Remembering Universe

I've been listening to this during the past week and I have to say that it has touched me in the right places. I wasn't expecting a semi-acoustic album to be this good but I should've known what to expect given the ones who play in it. Really atmospheric and soothing, good for an easy wake up.

Black Cilice - A Corpse, a Temple. While this is certainly more melodic than the demo and EP I've heard from him, this is still very much a noisy wall of sound, with drums and howling vocals in the background.
