The whole album has leaked actually, I listened to it earlier. It's pretty good though none of the songs are as good as Adrift In The Ocean.

I can't believe Pallbearer is playing with Tombs on Halloween night in Chapel Hill, NC. The club is on Franklin St. and the entire NC college scene turns the street into something like this...



There's no way anyone is getting close to the town let lone the street the venue is on that night.

Not only that, but Halloween is on a Friday this year, so it's right at the end of a week of classes! I am not looking forward to trying to get there.

Cannot wait to see Pallbearer with Yob in London. I love Yob, and the new Pallbearer is great. Also, the new Lord Mantis has grown on me a ton, really like that album now.

Just back from seeing Earth in Glasgow, it was pretty great.

Setlist if anyone is interested:

Badger's Bane
Even Hell Has Its Heroes
Old Black
There Is A Serpent Coming
The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull (best song of the set, it was amazing)
From the Zodiacal Light
Torn By the Fox of the Crescent Moon (this was also really good and made a great finisher)

Also found out that Yob and Pallbearer are playing up here next month, I am excited.

The new stuff is cool, isn't it? Torn by the Fox was a cool change of pace for Earth.

(Bees made Honey was also amazing when I saw them last night)

Goddamn. You couldn't have paid me to deal with that poo poo even when I was going to school in Raleigh, but I might have done it for Tombs/Pallbearer.

Fairly similar to the set they played here a few months back, though they did play something from Pentastar then.

Yeah, I was a big fan of old droney Earth but I like the new stuff a lot too. Dylan was a lot chattier than when I last saw them, he gave a little intro to each song which was cool. Old Black: "Sometimes it's about a cat, sometimes it's about another cat, sometimes it's about a band and when it was written it was about this other dude's guitar."

I sent in a comment on the Profound Lore website to that effect...doubt it'll do any good, but worth a shot. Lincoln or Kings would be a lot better.

The new YOB is god-tier doom metal.

Marrow alone might be the best thing they've ever done. Also, the only hopeful doom metal song.

A friend took me to Boris a few days ago and Atsuo tried to kill an audience member for filming. That was fantastic.

The Atlas Moth and SubRosa really impressed me and I got my hands on their discographies but I need more. I generally only listen to dorky power metal so I have absolutely no idea where to go. Assistance? I'm super into this SubRosa track at the moment.

SubRosa's album previous to More Constant Than the Gods is pretty good but can't compare to what I would call a modern classic.

For similar bands look into Black Math Horseman, Ides of Gemini, and Worm Ouroboros. If you like the female vocals and are willing to go a little more stoner, there's a whole subgenre of occultish, female led stoner/doom out there for you: Blood Ceremony, Devil's Blood, Jess and the Ancient Ones, Witch Mountain, Royal Thunder, Electric Wizard, Windhand, Dark Castle, Jex Thoth. I'm sure I'm missing a bunch but there's plenty of ground to tread.

Monarch! is female-fronted (and Canadian) iirc. I actually have a whole playlist full of awesome female-fronted bands. IMO just hang out in this thread and click on everything. Good taste in here.

On my metal list for August, there's also Electric Citizen, which I am really digging so far, but it's way more on the Sabbath side of things with a dash of post-rock.

So John Garcia finally released his solo album.

Itís not terrible, although it doesnít break any new ground or anything. Itís better than the Vista Chino album, partially because itís shorter and more streamlined, but itís pretty much exactly what youíd expect from a John Garcia solo album.

Itís pretty decent driving/workout music. The only track I feel like I need to skip is Confusion which is awful faux-trippy dirge.

Single - My Mind

Also good:

I listen to both Acid Bath albums on average about 2-3 times weekly still.

The new Pallbearer is loving awesome and Steven Hyden wrote a nice little thing on them over at Grantland.

Sorrow and Extinction got love from places like Pitchfork and Stereogum so it makes sense, but I really don't know how they pick bands to obsess over. The metal tastes of people who don't listen to metal are weird.

There was even a gushing Pallbearer review in a major Canadian newspaper today. Foundations Of Burden is a solid doom album, but there's nothing groundbreaking about it, so the hype is puzzling.

That new YOB track, though... yikes, that is some scary riffage. I love the minimalist drumming in the heavy part after the quiet guitar break.

Every year, some modern music critics like to heap praise on a "heavy" genre album to show how progressive they are. Last year it was Deafheaven, a few years ago it was hosed Up. This year it's Pallbearer.

All three are great albums, I'm just saying it seems super weird and transparent when this happens. Then next year everyone will go back to not giving a poo poo about doom, and there will be a review that's like "Album X is really the album that's going to push drone metal in to the mainstream!"

Anecdotally, I don't usually chat in real life with people about this kind of music because I don't have any friends who have anything of value say about the genre are that into it. However I recently had two unexpected conversations with guys wanting to talk about the new Pallbearer. It has been kind of weird. I haven't seen another new doom album get this kind of publicity. Somebody is doing something right it seems. Good for Pallbearer. I'm still trying to get into the album, I've only gotten to stream a couple of the tracks so far, the production sure is an improvement from the first album. Though I slightly miss the sound they had going on the first album with the melody guitar parts. So far the vocals seem like a huge step up and pretty impressive. Maybe that's what's getting peoples attention?

I agree entirely, I just want to know how they pick those albums. Is it a matter of band PR pushing them to the right reviewers?

hosed Up is kind of different because their sound actually appeals to indie fans as much as anything. All of my college friends admit they got into David Comes to Life because it sounds like The Hold Steady with screaming (particularly songs like The Other Shoe). He also managed to get into Refused, At the Drive-In and Mastodon's Leviathan with some pushing from me, which reminds me that Mastodon are another weird example of hipster favoritism.

Sunn O))) are somewhat well known outside of doom circles, but I think that's in large part to Stephen O'Malley being really good at promoting them and collaborating with a wide range of artists. Their live shows are really as much performance art as music. I don't know whether that leads people into drone in general or if it's more like Merzbow where loads of people have heard of him but still almost nobody actually listens to his records.

YOB's "Nothing to Win" is fantastic. I was sceptical about the new album (I dislike everything Neurosis and Neurot) but I'm glad to see YOB's YOB. Super stoked they might even outreach the peak that is "Adrift in the Ocean".

Interesting- I've always felt that "Adrift In The Ocean" was one of their weaker tunes, since it reuses some of the riffs from Middian's "Dreamless Eye."
