New Falconer out today. Iím about 3/4 of the way through it and itís pretty good, but Iím sure it will grow on me after listening to it a few more times.

Its bittersweet knowing itís their last album. I can see why Stefan thinks itís getting derivative, at least melodically, but on the other hand it also sounds like theyíve evolved a considerable amount over the last 20 years.

I've been going back to older releases and found something I had completely missed.

That guitar starting at 3:45 is weird as hell. It seems like they are employing it like a brass instrument, which I guess is appropriate giving the subject matter?

Been listening to Finntroll lately and forgot how great they are. They managed to make folk metal that sounds dark and mischievous, but a lot of fun as well.

Finntroll were one of the bands that were instrumental in getting me over my disdain for harsh vocals, and while most of the others have fallen by the wayside since, Finntroll have remained a steady fixture in my personal metal landscape all the way. Really excited they're finally gonna release new stuff.

I know this isn't metal but the new Hum album is heavy as gently caress. If you like Cave In then you'll love this!

I saw Hum play in a tinyass club in Chicago New Years Day. I was about five bodies from the stage. Drunk and getting a face full of Matt's guitar the entire set was a spiritual experience.

I liked pretty much all of their first 3 albums, but in particular I'd say this track. The vocals just sound much stronger than the latest album, the mix sounds better, the riffs are more bm than the new stuff, and the synths heavily lean into the "spooky pirate" poo poo. I wouldn't say I was ever a super fan, they were just a pretty solid symphonic black band.

Sir, we have located the Bioweapon.

College Slice

The Fintroll studio updates are actually pretty funny:

quote:

it's getting to close to 21 and we really should give our poor engineer a rest, we decided to call it for the day and went home. I played Uncharted with my wife until we realized it's 1 AM, I have the studio in the morning and our kids will probably wake us up at seven in the morning because why the gently caress not.

quote:

To open up the vocal cords at first, we started with the intro, which now has lyrics in an ancient Trollish language referred as "the Brown Speech". (absolutely nothing to do with Tolkien, nope, never.) Due to not wanting to use proper words and being so fed up with always going with the "huhs and hahs", we sat down and figured out completely made-up words from syllables which had the right intonation we wanted. Not surprisingly, it became something of which sound had absolutely nothing to do with music from World of Warcraft, nope, never.
Roka-sha, my brave warriors of the Horde!

Most of the remaining group vocals were yelled and grunted in within the next two hours, as we deliberately kept all the arrangements rather simple. Our intention was definitely not to fill the album with choirs a'la Moonsorrow, but utilize them only where needed in order to give more room for everything else. Trolls don't sing nicely anyway, they loving CRY FOR WAR, aye! I felt so sorry for our engineer (having been there for over 11 hours already without a single proper break) that I told him to have some beer on us. Lucky for him, he had already brought his own and pointed his plastic bag. "Please do", I insisted him and felt a bit more humane. And even more thirsty.

quote:

Unless, of course, the whole world just happens to suffer from a severe pandemia, lockdown and a close-to-zombie-apocalypse situation which naturally happens during a Finntroll album recording.

After constantly running from a room to another while apologizing everyone about the horrible lag in schedule every time I passed them, I felt like someone had dragged me into an episode of Fawlty Towers. Lucky for me, any of the guests weren't German! I asked Virta to bring them a crate of beer to keep everyone happy, which he delivered like a true keeper of the seven credit cards

Most melodic black metal Iíve listened to has been at least p rad in some way but I probably listen to way more melodeath. Itís definitely lamer though as a whole. Somehow like half of it is just death metal nu metal but whatever. Itís fine. I totally get why itís an introduction genre for a lot of people leading them to more extreme sounds but thatís not really a bad thing at all.

Sometimes I just want some metal and melo* usually has more of it.

Speaking of mood: I've been listening to Downfall of Gaia and Dead to a Dying World back to back and now I'm depressed. Dead to a Dying World sounds like metal GY!BE.

Meloblack because it doesn't sound like everyone's trying to rip off Slaughter era At the Gates or Jester Race era In Flames. Instead it's either cribbing Dissection or Weakling or some other bands I don't know of that well cause i'm false as gently caress

red in the sky is ours is actually a way weirder album than most people seem to notice and there isn't really that much that sounds like it imo. if you like cenotaph you should definitely listen to the chasm, daniel corchado was in cenotaph before forming the chasm and somewhat unusually for a death metal band basically all of their albums are at least good, although deathcult for eternity is probably the best. the first intestine baalism album is a bit like melodic swedish stuff before the sound got too codified although i'm not as keen on the later albums. i think stargazer have a bit of this sound too although they're very much doing their own thing as well(and they're really good at it).
