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.

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!

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.

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.

Atlantean Kodex - Temple of Katholic Magick, off the Golden Bough

The production could use some work and the vocals aren't exactly the best around, though I still like it. Very decent epic doom metal. Also, this song's title is basically a fancy way to say "church".

Blut Aus Nord - Liber II

This is great. Big improvement over Liber I. Way more twisted mortlike riffs and i love the creepy vocal interludes.

I like both of these. The Goliath is a tough album to listen to because it appears to be so random, but beneath that there's a level of cohesiveness. I like your description of "majestic", as I feel the production is quite warm, so to speak, for a wild technical death metal outfit. I haven't heard anything like it, though.

The Conductor's Departure is the best thing Anata have done, I think. Every song has its own identity, which is something unusual for technical death. Great album.

Sure do! Don't ask me where I got it because I don't remember. :P I don't know much about Angelcorpse, but your review was pretty spot on, I think.

Cool. I like this album, even though I don't listen to it too much for my doom metal fix.

Marduk - Serpent Sermon

I was wondering if they could make a worthy follow-up to Wormwood, and I think they have with this one. While I think that one may be slightly better, Serpent Sermon still has a lot of cool songs. It's probably a step up in terms of speed, too, even though there are slower sections, which I think Marduk do well.

The Conductor's Departure is the best thing Anata have done, I think. Every song has its own identity, which is something unusual for technical death. Great album.

I haven't heard anything similar to Orgone either. The closest I've heard are Stephen Jarrett's (the guitarist) other bands Meadow and Miracle Worker (both have bandcamp pages). They're not tech death in the slightest but they do have much more of the post-y tendencies of Orgone. Pretty catchy stuff too. Also if you haven't done so yet, you could look into their 2nd album, The Joyless Parson, or their Accumulator demo. Both are excellent as well.

And Anata are one of my favourite tech death bands. Their entire discography is golden.

NP: Dionaea - Still
They call themselves 'post grind', which sounds pretentious, but it's actually somewhat accurate. They frequently switch from laid-back reverb-soaked clean passages to bursts of harsh, dissonant mathcore. I do wish the 2 genres could be integrated better though, instead of just switching styles every few minutes.

I listened to this again the other night and your description is spot on. The band is amazing and the heavy groove is unexpected and done so tastefully.

Great band. New album, please!

Just listened to manilla road - atlantis rising. It was enjoyable for background music to playing this extremely difficult doom WAD. game.
Listened to manilla road - the circus maximus next. Man, that was so bad, I just had to turn it off. the vocals are just so corny! I only got to song 2. Hey, at least I finally gave manilla road an honest chance. I'll probably out some other albums to see if their other stuff is more tasteful.

Now playing - Acid Witch - Witchtanic hellucinations

Now this, I can enjoy.

o_O Well, I had no idea that Orgone had another album out! And it's been out for 4 freakin' years. I have Accumulator but not the newest album, so it looks like I might have to get that one at some stage, too! Thanks for that. :)

I do like all of Anata's stuff, too, but The Conductor's Departure is their peak for me.

Cannibal Corpse - Gallery Of Suicide

Just bought this one today, as it's the only Corpsegrinder-era album I didn't have. It's probably not as good as the one after it (Bloodthirst), but it's still a worthy listen, for me. Typical Cannibal Corpse, but nothing bad. I like it. :)

Finny finding time to get into the band, Overkill. Just listened to Overkill - Feel the fire and oh man, that was some kick ass shit. That vocalist's scream is, damn!
Listening to horrorscope now. Why do they have to slow down so much? I mean, I haven't really heard the other albums, so I don't know how they've changed to this new, slower, more redundant style. It's only my first impression, mind you.
On this track new machine, it's just as slow as the last track, horrorscope, and it's getting redundant. I don't like hearing the same thing like, over and over again. WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF A NEW MACHINE! Yeah, okay! WHATEVER! I DON'T CARE!
This album feels a little more mature than feel the fire, style wise. It's great music for background music to the extremely difficult doom mod i'm playing.
I plan on listening to their earlier albums after this. It's just in the order the albums are on my iTunes. I saw overkill's feel the fire at my local record store on vinyl, for 25 dollars. It's kind of a lot for me for me to spend, now that I have no income, and I don't usually pick up an album so soon after listening to it for the first time. But feel the fire was really good.

Now playing: soulitude

Oh man, this track sucks. I'm gonna gag at this fucking sentimental goddamn bullshit.
