Baroness and Deafheaven are touring together
How is the new deafheaven album? I haven’t had a chance to sit down with it yet.
Czech slam monsters Epicardiectomy are releasing Grotesque Monument of Paraperversive Transfixion on 12/31 to make sure it slides in to my AOTY at the last minute.
Abominable Putridity has Matti Way returning on vocals for their single "Supreme Void" teasing their 2019 album.
Florida strikes again
I sometimes forget he also played in Nevermore.
Love pinball, have pinballs, would not play a Ghost pinball.
i knew you read metal news sites even though you claimed not to
False. I only read forums like I have since the 90's. I went to BM to see if there was more information on the CC members arrest from the other day. And what's his name, Tobias? I would smash him at pinball.
I lurk at metal archives forum most days. What are some other good ones?
Most I’ve seen aren’t that active.
There aren't many good ones left. Metal-Rules was good in the 90's, I probably haven't been back there since the 90's. MA is a popular one. Braveboard just shut down a couple weeks ago, now back up on a different server and ran independently, they still appear to be working out bugs. There's the NWN! forum and apparently it's large but I've never cared for all the nazi nonsense they seem to attract.
Is that Rivers of Nihil album good? It was the Banger TV album of the year
honestly i shied away because the album was called Where Owls Know My Name
That's an absurd album name even for me
fwiw 1914's album was Angry Metal Guy's album of the month
people in the comments had strong takes that Chapel of Disease should have gotten it, and I can't say I disagree because that's a great album. the 1914 album was good as fuck too, though
It's in my top 5 for the year. Technical death metal with tons of interesting progressive moments, and the vocalist has some Scott Kelly from Neurosis vibes (a good thing). Despite all the technical brilliance, they know how to write good songs too (see: 'A Home').
Sulphur Aeon has leaked.
Do yourself a favor and read this article for the lulz
I FUCKING LOVE Beaten to Death. Album drops Dec 24th. NOBODY does melody and grind better. Probably my favorite band ever
Listening later tonight
nothing from Sulphur Aeon on my music site tonight
Behemoth: The Metal Mind Years 4 CD Box Set 2018
I don't know why it pisses me off but it does. None of those albums were originally released by Metal Mind. Metal Mind re-issued those albums years later.
so jason becker, yes that jason becker, put out a new album this month. fucking wild.
I saw that, is it worth listening to?
i'm sure we've all listened to much worse
About halfway through the Sulphur Aeon album. It's good but the clean vocals are annoying
I listened to this 3 times last night. Could be my favorite of the year, no lie.
heard good things about that Svartidaudi. Icelandic black metal is a vibrant scene for sure. they're more focused on dissonance than melody, and some of the bands are tough to listen to.
Its definitely worth at least a few minutes
S U M M O N
N Y A R L A T H O T E P
new Sulphur Aeon is amazing.
if early 2000s-era Nile wrote progressivey songs exclusively about Cthulhu, and had the songwriting chops of Bloodbath, with just the right amount of black metal riffing sprinkled here and there.
I’d rank this album tops for them:
1. Scythe Of Cosmic Chaos
2. Beneath the Ocean Tide
3. Gateway To The Anti-Sphere
I think these guys, Slugdge, and Rivers Of Nihil are the best things going in death metal right now. Fight me if you disagree.
Brian May Teases New Solo Single...to Be Released From NASA Mission Control
By Andrew Magnotta
December 19, 2018
Queen guitarist Brian May plans to release his first solo song in 20 years in a historic fashion.
May, who also holds a doctorate in astrophysics, will release his new song, "New Horizons," from the NASA mission control center in Greenbelt, Maryland, on New Year's Day 2019.
The song is apparently named for NASA's New Horizons probe, which is expected to reach the edge of our solar system on January 1, 2019, approximately 13 years after it was launched.
You can hear a teaser for the new track above!
Due to how busy May has been with his research, he's mostly ruled out making new music with Queen. But it seems the "New Horizons" project has reinvigorated him creatively from multiple angles.
"This project has energized me in a new way," May said through a statement. "For me, it's been an exciting challenge to bring two sides of my life together — astronomy and music. It was Alan Stern, the Project Instigator of this amazing NASA mission, who threw down the glove last May. He asked if I could come up with a theme for Ultima Thule which could be played as the probe reached this new destination."
The New Horizons probe is traveling farther than any man-made object ever has. May says it's an inspiring historic moment of which he's proud to be a part.
"To me, it epitomizes the human spirit's unceasing desire to understand the universe we inhabit," he said. "Everyone who has devoted so much energy to this mission since its launch in January 2006 will be feeling they are actually inside that small but intrepid vehicle — only about the size of a grand piano — as it pulls off another spectacular close encounter."
May's last solo release was 1998's Another World album.
Sulphur Aeon album is the jam.
So this sulphur aeon album has how much of these shit clean vox exactly?
you have to have chanted clean vox to summon the Old Ones
the top 10 lists are here
I can out douche those black metal elitist cunts.
it seems like a pretty good mix of stuff. someone even had Visigoth in their top 10 or honorable mentions
I went straight into rage mode after seeing the first list and Vovoid at #1 on it. Unacceptable.
I only listened to a couple hundred new albums this year, I usually do two and sometimes three times that. I got hung up on my 80's revisit and couldn't get out of that mode for a months. Nonetheless, I don't feel like I missed much this year. Next year I'll probably repeat the same process, spend more time with the old stuff. The scene feels so watered down with garbage as it's too easy for bands to put an album out. Now part of that is my fault for thinking I have to listen to every single unsigned/independent release, but some of this shit is so incredibly bad.
Agree with this. Too many bands have figured out how to put window dressing on unoriginal and uninspired content. The internet allows everyone to get exposure and push junk up the ladder.
Sometimes it feels like it takes me forever to wade through the average to find something great.
New Feral and new Beaten To Death have leaked.
The barrier to entry for good bands is lower also
Here are the band photos of the first three 2018 albums I've listened to tonight:
I find it suspicious that Gorement's only full length album, "The Ending Quest" from 1994 has a total of 6 reviews on Archives and every one of them is 100%. Can't help but feel like one of the review approval gatekeepers has some sort of obsession with them. The album is a 75% - 80%, all 6 reviews at 100% is nonsense. I find other unheralded 'classics' to be better, like Hazael's "Thor" for example, which only boasts of a 90% and two reviews. Maybe if I get bored I'll do a review of the Gorement and see if it gets posted.
i would have thought mallcore was against your personal code of conduct
It is, luckily for me they're a thrash band.
young people going hard is something i will never say bad things about... unless it's metalcore
