Can crust be granted honourary metal status for the purposes of this thread? There really isn't anywhere else to talk about it.

Is it okay if I stop the last.fm circlejerk?

New Wolves in the Throne Room, Celestial Lineage, leaked and it rules. Definitely more atmospheric than Black Cascade, sort of like if you mixed it with Malevolent Grain. Really good stuff so far.

Well, guess I'm not going to bed for a while.

While on the topic of grind that isn't really grind, Frightmare are way too fun to not listen to. I don't think I'll ever tire of that outro solo.

There's also Impaled Nazarene if you want black metal with a grind candy coating.

My girlfriend won't let me wear metal shirts in public anymore.

In all fairness, most metal t-shirts are embarrassing. If the designs aren't cringe-inducing, the slogans on the back usually are. There's always diamonds in the rough though.

I'm in a municipal waste shirt at work, in a corporate office right now. I can't believe this many of you are this worried about fashion statements and the perceptions of strangers.


I wear a Toxic Holocaust shirt pretty frequently, it's not like anyone can read the font anyway. My issue is more with ugly design and slogans on the back like "KILL EVERYONE" or "DRINK BLOOD 666 DEVILFUCK" that just come off as something aimed at kids who desperately want to alienate their parents.

I'm still waiting for something like Wolves In The Throne Room meets Vangelis. Is that too lofty of a dream?

burzum karaoke
May 30, 2003



I can't say there were too many albums that really wowed me this year.

My top two albums by a mile are:

Wolves in the Throne Room - Celestial Lineage
Blood Ceremony - Living with the Ancients

Celestial Lineage grabbed be right away. Listening to it was practically a religious experience and I think it's far and above WiTTR's best work and a fitting end for them as a band.

Living with the Ancients was a bit of a slow burn for me. At first I dismissed it, feeling that the band had abandoned a lot of the cheesiness and the dominating role of the flute that I enjoyed so much from the first album. But, giving it a second chance a few months later, the album resonated with me as a much for mature production than their first effort and I fell head over heels for it.

honourable mentions in no particular order:

Earth - Angels of Darkness Demons of Light I
Bongripper - Sex Tape/Snuff Film
Dopethrone - Dark Foil
Hunters - From Birth to Soil
Thorr-Axe - Wall of Spears
Midnight Odyssey - Funerals From the Astral Sphere
Absu - Abzu
Weedeater - ...Jason the Dragon

After ignoring it for some time, I'm trying to get into Skeletonwitch's most recent album, and while I think it's a much better effort than Breathing the Fire, the productiom/mixing sounds like garbage to me.

This is probably a goofy request that will get me laughed at, but I'm looking for some well produced death metal with an older school kind of sound. Anything recent come to mind?

I really like what Martin van Drunen's been involved with lately, but I'd also like hear some suggestions.

Man, I wish. The lighting in that place was great, but there was no professional photography equipment allowed. I've been pretty lucky in the past, but I really need to start checking with promoters ahead of time.

If anyone gets a chance to see Ghost live, do it. Even if you're lukewarm on them. The level of theatrics and showmanship they put on is astounding. I say this in the same vein that everyone and their dads rave on about Cirque du Soleil. Papa Emeritus even gave us communion at the end of the show.

I didn't realize there was another Ancient Wisdom and just checked them out and yeah, they are pretty rad. I just figured the guys I saw liked spelling their name like jackasses.

Sigh are one of my guilty pleasures. "The Transfiguration Fear," a track from their upcoming album, In Somniphobia, is streaming a bit after the 16min mark in this BBC radio program webcast.

God they're so weird, I love it. They've gone... weird, Megaman-congo-fusion, or something.

edit-- not to mention they just have the best album covers:



poo poo, you really weren't joking about Megaman. I'm really excited to hear what the rest of this is going to sound like. I've only listened to Scenes from Hell by Sigh. What else is worth checking out?

Oh man the new Sigh track sounds like they took Imaginary Sonicscape to hell. Official twitter linked to a youtube reupload so everyone who can't get at iPlayer can hear this.

I was kind of on the fence about this sound at first, but now I can't stop mashing the play button to listen to it again. It has an organ solo followed by a sax solo followed by a guitar solo and ends on a whistle chorus.

Good power metal pretty much lives and dies as Helloween's Walls of Jericho and Keeper of the Seven Keys. Manowar can be a lot of fun in an overly-enthusiastic, but awkward 80's pro-wrestling sort of way.

Aww, thanks buddy. I'll work on more, I just haven't been in the mood to write lately, and when I have it's been all depressive black metal. Winter tends to do that. I've had the itch to play more thrash though, so I'll try to get back on that.

Also the girl doing vocals moved to Texas, but she and I have similar screaming voices so it's do-able.
