My friend and I wrote a thrash song about Hurricane Irene. The storm turned out to be mostly a dud, so let the music rip your house apart instead.

But back to the thread - I agree about the new Toxic Holocaust. It rules, but it's definitely a slight style change for Mr. Grind.

edit-- And thank you all for the Noctum/Year of the Goat/Graveyard/etc. recommendations, those have been a lot of fun.

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.

It's odd that the 10 minute songs go by extremely fast and the 5 minute ones go on forever.

I noticed that. I had track one on, and thought "hm, I wonder how long it's been, this song is 11 minutes isn't it?" and when I looked I was on track 4 already

I was browsing reddit this morning and I found a pretty cool upstart folk metal band.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAF-...feature=related

They're called Aether Realm and they're out of Greenville, NC! (Just a state away from me!) I think the vocals stand out the most for me. Mid to high register death metal vocals but the enunciation is amazing. So far they just have a 2 song EP out, but the band looks extremely promising!

Whoa I was just visiting Greenville for the weekend and came home to find this! (I live in Greensboro, about 3 hours away).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_range_compression

Compression is an essential part of music production, as it serves to "even out" the volume of a track by increasing the volume of quiet parts and limiting the volume of loud parts (well, actually "limiting" is another, related concept, but let's not worry about that). Too much compression, however, can remove the dynamics between volume levels that you want, leaving a track sounding "squashed."

In layman's terms, instead of a drum fill sounding like
BoopadoDAPPA-ba-doopa

It'll sound something like
BOOPADODAPPABADOOPA

No dynamics, no subtlety.

Nifelheim and Treblinka logos look nothing like that though? Aside from the black text with white outlines.

Skeletonwitch is closer, it's a fairly "generic retro thrash" logo though. Like say Deathchain, Witchaven, etc.

Anyway the guys who made the patches are James Jirat Patradoon and Aaron Kuswara. And they plan on selling them.

The majority of the front of the vest is based on punk/crust/hardcore bands though.

That's so weird. The Big Pun/Nekromantix patch especially threw me.

edit: and I think the other guy was confused that Abzu wasn't referring to some other band, but rather the new album from Absu. Case closed!

If you're talking about me, I was confused because I had seen nothing posted anywhere about sample tracks from the album or anything, so I was searching for some released sample tracks or something. I've heard the album now and it's pretty awesome. Not as catchy as Absu, but a little more aggressive. Very good stuff.

Sumerian Records is a label that includes bands like After the Burial, Veil of Maya, Periphery, and Born of Osiris. Basically a lot of stuff that would belong in the djent thread.

Years ago my old band toured with a band called Reflux, and I remember a number of times sitting with a permanent face while their singer went on long rants to me about various conspiracies and how he literally thinks that aliens came and created humanity and how we're all made out of stardust and stuff.

...turns out that guy is Ash Avildsen, the guy who runs Sumerian Records. He's crazy. A great guy, but crazy. Coincidentally, their guitar was Tosin Abasi, who's now the wonderchild behind Animals As Leaders, and is substantially less crazy. Small world.

edit-- This is one of the books I remember him recommending to me: Welp.
