Spoiler: show
This is actually from their EP Will To Power, which came out just before Stillbirth Machine. I've always known you would fall for this band if you heard the right thing in the right moment. I think we're getting there. You nailed down my favorite thing about them,
I think: It's got all the atmosphere and violence of death metal but the riffing is PURE. There's nothing in there but Frost, Voivod,
and hardcore punk. Period. You will not find a riff that sounds like canonical Possessed, or Death, or Morbid Angel. Keller just didn't write like that. And the drumming is completely off the wall which I assumed you'd dig. Hardly ever blasts, if ever. If he does it's some one-footed slop.

Skip Stillbirth Machine. Check out Dawn Bringer. Trust me. It has that rehearsal room sound that you're craving.


Lugubrum are gods.

You seemed to enjoy Lugubrum, and that's cool. The chances were about fifty fifty (or something) that it'd get someone who hated it. They are a weird band but once you get it, there's just no turning back. Not sure if you were familiar at all before now but it sounds like you pinpointed their kind of aesthetic from the sound exactly. Of course, this is from the Arabic/Mid-east-inspired album, but I guess they are speaking Flemmish. I always look for the eccentric metal bands and Lugubrum have had me ensnared ever since their "Darkthrone-on-crack" De Totem album.

Oi, yeah Abom, that stuff was pretty cool, actually! It's not really something I would've ever stumbled upon on my own, as black metal isn't really my field, but I like what I heard. I should probably give the full album a listen. I'm a sucker for Arabic influences in metal.

I love that the reviews for the new Dying Fetus get abbreviated on the front page of MA as "Wrong One to Fuck..." Sounds like a remorseful concept album dealing with John Gallagher's experiences with STIs.

Let's bring this thread back from the dead!

Droid - Cosmic Debt

Youthful, energetic thrash here. I recall their debut being even proggier in parts (which I've sampled but might as well just listen to at one point) but parts of this actually make me think of Metallica's respected debut, even though this guy doesn't sound like James Hetfield at all. Still, you get plenty of wild frantic riffing that's not very technical and definitely not crushing. I'm glad this doesn't sound like some band taking the usual thrash-gone-retro style but It's just that I'm not getting moved hearing this. I don't doubt that they're not trying - this sounds passionate and it's listenable and whatnot, but, eh yeah.

Septicflesh - The Eldest Cosmonaut

Love me some early Septicflesh. This starts with a wall of watery guitar harmonies, and then quickly drops off into a plodding doom section replete with eerie clean guitars and keyboards. Clean female vocals provide contrast to Spiros' guttural proselytizing to quite a nice effect. Definitely has that 'Underwater Garden' vibe. The dual guitars shift from accentuating the main melody proffered by the keys and vocals with lead runs and melodic ornamentation, to becoming the dominant force and chugging the song into an entirely new direction with a surprise set of gnarly, twisted riffs. The main melody comes back, and by this point the main leitmotif has become addictive to go along with emotionally effecting. A set of melodic riffs builds nicely into another reiteration of the theme, then gives way to a plodding chug over which the female vocalist continues to wail. Fade to silence, and there you have an excellent song. Nobody sounded like early Septicflesh. Overall, another brilliant combination of gothic harmony, death metal vocals and doomy riffs that forge a mighty vehicle of musical transportation.

Crimson Thorn - Prophet of Death

Either this is a pretty cool underground thrash band, or I just live under a rock. It has a powerful chugging riff that I love, and I like the speed this one has. Not sure about the vocals though... for thrash I think I'd like something a little more understandable, and the vocalist's pronunciation reminds me of vocalists that don't even speak English as their first language. But I think I'll take a closer look at this demo sometime... I don't listen to a lot of thrash but I'm trying to change that.
