It's actually a really solid album. We'll see what they do for the next but i'm down for more of the same.

The closing track, Genesis, is genius.

I kind of went lukewarm on Ghost even though I loved Opus Eponymous when it came out. I think I just discovered bands in that style that I prefer, like Year of the Goat and The Devil's Blood. I will not deny that Opus Eponymous has some brilliant songs on it.

This needs to be heard by everyone. Dreamy, dark, haunting. It's the perfect "post-black metal" (I hate that term, but I'll use it for convenience) album. It has all the raw, bleak darkness of black metal, with all the beauty of post-rock, without compromising on either part. A truly spectacular debut. I can't heap enough praise on it.

That's because Genesis is Goblin worship. And Goblin rule.

I think the rest of the album is pretty poo poo and they're boring live.

Somewhere in my folk metal browsings, I came across Corvus Corax, who are labelled Neo Medieval: bagpipes, big ol' drums, chorus singing lyrics in Latin, stuff like that. Found myself headbanging to one of their shorter, faster tracks, "In Taberna".

Turns out they have some weird, industrial side-project. Tanzwut. TanzWUT, indeed.

So, this new Tenacious D album leaked. I'm not sure what I think of it yet. It definitely has some solid, solid tracks, but there's still a handful that just aren't that good. There wasn't a bad song on that first album. I'm afraid they'll never rekindle that fire.

Unrelated note, I think Blood Ceremony is my favorite of this new wave of classic occult metal or whatever we're calling it. Does it have a name yet?

You might already know these first three:

Infernal Majesty have the eerie/evil mid-tempo Slayer thing down as well as anyone. Here's one of the faster songs, though I prefer the mid-tempo ones.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yut2c_7LMvg

Morbid Saint? The solos aren't the craziest nonsense, but the vocals are pretty sick. I'm not sure if this is what you mean by grimy/gross so it's either spot on or not at all right.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHulWnPnda8

Demolition Hammer: Along with Morbid Saint, one of the more prominent of the older extreme/brutal/whatever thrash - it's basically early Slayer but a step further.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbK3s3xzbvg

You probably haven't heard these:

Dirty black/speed metal like early Sodom? How about Maximum Oversatan? This trailer is all I can find on yt but the tape is pretty drat good. Unfortunately it's only available on cassette.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKUzCwVt9uI

Multiple Stab Wounds - Another band that took early Slayer a step further in the late 80s. Similar to Morbid Saint, they put out three demos that were each a bit different, and conveniently they're all available from the band on this yt channel.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOtJtyO2ARI
Also check out this one for their earlier style http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5idsPUOxesA

Lunattick Fringe - MSW plus another guitarist, musically more in the death/thrash direction, but the vocals are less extreme.

The deathy vocals won't match your request, but Engrave is a band that always gets overlooked. Only had one album; it's a good one.

Sadistic Ritual is a band local to me here in Atlanta, and they absolutely loving rip. They REALLY need to put out more music, though.

I think Ashes Against the Grain is their most accessible, but honestly I'm probably just biased because I like that album the best. They are all winners, though, so just give them a spin.

I need something to listen to on the go and recently, I discovered Gama Bomb. It's nothing spectacular, but I kinda dig the cheesy tongue-in-cheek thing they got going there, it's seriously fun to listen to. I know a shitton of new thrash metal bands appeared recently,but sifting through those, most of them have nothing to go for them, really.

Is there anything like this, something that wouldn't be all uber-heavy and serious, while keeping the basic thrashiness?

Ultima! Ahmmm-bing!

The latest Diablo Swing Orchestra album is pretty darn solid. I don't know why people were complaining about the Korny electronic breakdown at the last 30 seconds of the last song. It actually is a pretty good song that starts slow and mellow with a dude singing over violins and slowly descends into chaos during the course of the song. In other words, it isn't the main gimmick, it is a crescendo that the song builds to, which is in my opinion a good way to do it.

Other than that, the entire album is fantastic, especially the first couple of songs. If someone can recommend a band that makes me want to get my dancin' shoes on like this one, please do.

This is so good, what a fantastic song. Ever since I heard From Mars To Sirius I've been a huge fan of these dudes, so this song is loving exciting for me. The melancholy melodic kind of harsh vocals are one of my favourite aspects of Gojira and Joe Duplantier just kills here. The production also feels less sterile than TWOAF, so I have high hopes for this.

I have to agree that the new Diablo Swing Orchestra album is awesome. I've recommended Stolen Babies before to people looking for music similar to DSO, they're about the closest band I've found, and it's decent stuff.

I'm so loving rock hard from this release. Lovin' the stronger melodic influences. I've been checking their website seemingly every few hours in hopes of them announcing a US tour. If nothing changes on that front, I'll very likely be driving from Texas to Toronto. My friend and I have already gone and ordered our passports in preparation. Waiting for a concert date is so tough, but the excitement of going to see your favorite band after waiting 3-4 months is nearly unmatched.

I dunno that you can start anywhere, there's a reason people are only posting their first 3 full lengths You can safely ignore the EPs, they're basically outtakes of stuff that wasn't good enough for the albums or them messing around with neofolk.

Their 4th one wasn't bad but it didn't grab me like the rest did. They put one out every 4 years or so which is why there's a pretty big difference between styles, while the first one has some great songs it really sounds a lot more amateurish. You can tell the vocalist is still figuring out what to do with his voice and the random guitar solos seem pretty out of place for Agalloch.
