Just listened: Death in June - The World That Summer
This album kind of pisses me off due to there being some extremely good tracks mixed with rather horrible ones. Five excellent tracks and then the rest are various levels of unlistenable for me...

Now playing: Death in June - Rose Clouds of Holocaust

rippikoulu - *whatever the hell this album is called*

Good stuff. After this i'll probably listen to sacramentum's far away from the sun, or vinterland welcome my last chapter, again. I can't get bored with vinterland welcome my last chapter.

Musta Seremonia man, Musta Seremonia! :-D And it's a demo not an album.

I'm puzzled as to why people enjoy Vinterland. Such run-of-the-mill tripe. It's not technically bad, but the sheer lack of inspiration bothers and irritates me.

It's not really rocket science. It's a one off band playing Swedish black metal of the melodic variant with a highly melancholic factor. I can certainly understand why people may dislike it though, but I guess the reasons behind that dislike are probably the ones people who enjoy it praise as positive aspects.

Neurosis - Honour Found In Decay

The more I listen to this the more accustomed I get to the feeling that the people behind Neurosis are no longer angry, but instead intend on presenting melancholy through different angles. And as funny as it may be this album ends up being a great one because of the laid back and relaxed atmosphere. I find myself playing it every day at night when I'm just alone at the keyboard and want a bit of inner calm. Strange to get that from a Neurosis album, strange indeed! :lol:

Immolation - Here in After

It's Immolation, so therefore it can't be bad. A little muddier than other releases, but it works in their favour as it gives the album a thick, brooding feel to it, all the while keeping the same great death metal Immolation are known for.

Full Of Hell - Affirmation Of Nothing

I wonder how these guys haven't made it onto the archives yet.

Electric Wizard - Devil's Bride

I seem to be listening to about equal parts Anaal Nathrakh and Electric Wizard, without as great deal in-between, at the moment.

Disma - Towards the Megalith

Listening to this thing as I generally do periodically. I get what people mean when they say no track really stands out. I think it's still really good. My favorite part is in spectral domination when it gets to the lyrics "drink and touch the spirit.. writhe before the golden bow." I decided to hear what theneedledrop said about and stuff and that's where I heard the "no track really stands out" thing.

I've listened to this album countless times, but never really payed too much attention to the lyrics. I listened to the first two songs, while reading the lyrics. Around the 3rd song, I kind of felt like reading the lyrics was getting boring. The lyrics are badass, don't get me wrong. They're just kind of there for the sake of being there. Kind of just lyrics that are there to not really make a point, but rather paint a picture and build an atmosphere of what to visualize when you're listening to the album. Which isn't wrong! It's cool, but I feel like I can get enough of the atmosphere from the music itself without reading the lyrics. For me, listening to it goes smoother if I just listen to it and not give it too much thought of what the cookie monster behind the mic is actually saying.

Anyways, this is one of my favorite death metal records.

I haven't listened to this new album intensively but that makes sense, yes.

My Electric Wizard fever seems to have dissapeared but will, surely, return.

Death In The Eyes Of Dawn from (2012) Enslaved - RIITIIR.
Yes! That's beautiful!

Horrendous - The Womb

Fantastic stuff - I've only been gradually, tentatively getting into death metal, but it's really been helping to have some new bands which aren't older than me. It's sort of... comfortable. There aren't any massive discographies to assail, just an awesome début.
