I saw Fleshgod Apocalypse last Wednesday and while I was on the fence about them before, I'm definitely a fan now! Their performance was great and the sound was top notch. Normally the venue that they played at has terrible sound because they usually only have indie bands there, but it really was great.

It was also good that it seemed like Cape Town had the best turnout for their week-long tour which was comforting (our crowds are normally fickle as hell).

I also did an interview with them (up on https://www.metal4africa.com) but it was last minute and done at the bottom of the band-entrance stairwell next to a huge generator, so I had to drop a couple of questions due to not being able to hear poo poo.

They know your life, they have a file about you
They built your life, so they...

Know what you like and know what you yearn,
but they don't know a thing about me

This owns, thanks for posting it.

I have a hard time finding death metal I like - about the only DM band I really dig is Bolt Thrower. I fuckin' love Bolt Thrower.

People always seem to recommend Hail of Bullets if you like Bolt Thrower, but I don't really get why. The war theme? Take the first 1:17 of Ordered Eastwards. I want more like this. After 1:17, I find I lose interest. I am totally loving into this right until it 'kicks in'.

That Entombed song has given me a kick to find more like this. Could anyone recommend me some 'slow' death metal? Bolt Thrower 'slow' is fine, so is Winter slow. Not necessarily death/doom, but yeah... Less goregrind-y, more groovy.

I would argue that it is one of the all-time worst Iron Maiden songs. I've never really listened to the Blaze albums though, mainly because I'm a willfully ignorant douche. That song is the epitome of filler material trash.

Thanks again for the death metal recommendations. I've been listening to them a bit more. Cianide, Grave and Slugathor are all great.

During my searching I found a band called Krypts and I'm really impressed. I gotta find more poo poo like this. They use the brutal feel as a tool and not the entire drat song, which I find supremely boring. Check it out, it's awesome.
