Blood of Kingu is great. I like Drudkh/Hate Forest and all, but Blood of Kingu is a nice departure from the more atmospheric and slower stuff the other bands put out.

On a somewhat related note, how is the new Astrofaes album?

I just picked up Cor Scorpii's Monuments and I must say I'm pleasantly surprised. The influence of the members from Windir is obvious but they definitely have their own sound and that sound is good.

I got to hear Samael's new album. It's a DEPARTURE from where they've been recently that's for drat sure. The production is bright but it's not bad at all. REALLY hard to tell I'm listening to samael.

I was hoping for a bit more of a return to the old sound like they promised, but it beats the balls off Solar Soul.

Departure is a bit of an understatement. I've been listening to Blut Aus Nord lately mostly because of this thread and Samael of all people have put me into a more aggressive rut.

The latest Katharsis has some cool parts, nothing groundbreaking but its pretty solid.

Sun of the Blind - Skullreader is full of excellent trippy atmospheric black metal that still manages to sound fantastically evil.

Thorns - Thorns sounds sort of like the later Emperor output, which is good. Fairly experimental.

I spent $100 to see Iron Maiden during their Somewhere Back in Time tour; it was worth it, too. I was center-stage, front row, for 2.5 hours of Maiden. Hands down, the best show I've ever seen.

On a more black metal note, I'm three tracks into the new Rotting Christ, and it's fantastic.

I like the direction Rotting Christ has gone in the last few albums, the short driving riffs really do something for them.

I liked a fair bit of Drudkh's more atmospheric output but the new album bored the hell out of me. Their atmospheric stuff could stand being a bit repetitive at times because the songs actually went somewhere, nothing on Handful of Stars goes anywhere or does anything interesting.

Is anyone else a fan of Mgla? I've been on a bit of a kick lately and I wish they'd release something new. Their sound has always struck me as sort of unique but does anyone have any recommendations for something similar?

I like a couple Katharsis songs but the band never struck me as sounding particularly similar to Mgla.

aliencowboy posted:

Hadn't heard of them until now. The opening of Groza IV knocked my socks off.

Groza IV is one of my favorites. Presence II and Further Down The Nest I are pretty killer as well. The albums in general are great but those songs stand out to me.

Go listen to the new Midnight Odyssey album, please. It's 2 hours long, and that will drive away a lot of jerks with bad taste and no attention span, but this really is an important album. Dis Pater has a very interesting combination of synth pop (house techno, Tangerine Dream styled ambient synths) and slow building Burzum styled Black Metal. He also shows much more influence from Shoe Gaze style Black Metal this time around, but without the silly maudlin self loathing you hear in most Shoe Gaze. His gaze is definitely outward and upward. Great record.

Absolutely doesn't hold a candle to Midnight Odyssey. This project is much more guitar riff driven and focuses a lot more on his Doom Metal and new wave Goth punk influence, while still being drenched in synth. It's fully realized music, but feels like the trimmings from Midnight Odyssey sessions where his attention has wandered and his thinking strays to a more Heavy Metal mode. It's not really bad, but completely unnecessary after listening to Midnight Odyssey.

I think the album is worth listening to just for The Tombs of Subterranea.

I am currently about 7 minutes into the 2nd track (30 minutes overall into the album), and I think this is the most intense stuff I've heard from the PDH side of Wintherr.

Every single one of these is fantastic, though it is kind of a bummer that half of Schlüssel is gusty wind noises.

Have you listened to PdH before?

I haven't, but I listen to a fair amount of ambient/atmospheric black metal so I'm aware that 15 minutes blocks of wind/forest/spooky noises are a thing. It's just sort of annoying to have to go fiddle with my playlist to skip fifteen minutes of loving wind noises after I listen to a song I otherwise like.

Are any of his other releases worth checking out? I like Darkspace and Zhaaral's Sun of the Blind side project.

I really dig मृत्यु का तापसी अनुध्यान by Cult of Fire, does anyone have any other recommendations for black metal that incorporates traditional (preferably non-western) music into the mix?

Other genres work too

Melechesh - Middle Eastern themed Black metal
Blood of Kingu - Same as above
Nile - Technical death metal with a hardon for Egypt
Rotting Christ - Greek black/death metal, the last couple albums have a lot of Middle Eastern stuff in them
