my friend is the drummer in this band
christ, my condolences.
yeah the big guitar solo part is the stuff that i like
the winding guitar solo reminds me of like Rhapsody in a good way
you know my stance on metalcore, but they're actually pretty damn good in person
As long as they're happy with what they're doing and they believe in it, I guess.
i'm not going to pretend to speak for them
they're all in their 30s like me. they like that style. it's not like i'm going to tell them that death metal is so much better.
they are playing at the Hawthorne in January (I think?) if you're bored. I'll buy you a drink or five.
I'd need five just to not want to kill myself. Are they opening for anyone I would know?
Think about it in terms of metalcore
Is it really that bad?
Yeah, but I have zero tolerance for this style of whateveritismusic. I'd actually rather listen to that Rivers Of Nihil band.
Patch-Shop.com in Lithuania just sent me a bunch of free patches for messing up my last order (shorted me one patch, kinda my fault for ordering two of the same damn patch). They also sent me a 30% off total order coupon code if you want it (97351).
Rivers of Nihil is more like progressive death metal, though. i don't really want to argue about my friend's band. they are what they are.
i mean, if they're not very good, then say that. it's not very useful to compare a local band with limited funds to a band like Rivers of Nihil
Yes, but the point is I despise them and yet it sounds more appealing.
My apologies, I thought I was being clear on that. I can say that they're better than the metal/emocore band one of my employees was in about 3 or 4 years ago.
I have no attachment to their style. Frankly I think they could play somewhere in the UADA-verse, but I doubt they will.
The black metal Uada?
I mean in terms of their playing. I think they could. Will they? 90% no?
I also don't want to act like I know where they are going in terms of their sound
Ah, I misunderstood.
Is Chapel of Disease your #1 for this year? Because that combo of death metal and prog rock is about as good as it's going to get (outside of an Opeth album, obviously )
Most likely, I can't currently think of anything else I liked better this year. I had high hopes for new Feral crushing but I listened to it tonight and while it's good it's not great. You turn your angrymetalguy list in yet?
In terms of what I listened to the most, it's the Black Fast album. I'm not sure if it's brilliant or mediocre. Terms of Surrender is one of the great thrash albums I've ever heard. IMO it's one of the great metal albums of the past 10 or 20 years. And then they wrote this album where it's like 90% tremolo picking and the hooks are basically the rare thrash riffs. It's just this dense wall of sound for like 40 minutes. Maybe it will look brilliant in 5-10 years? Maybe it will look bad.
If more songs like this get made, I think we'll all be ok
Love Terms Of Surrender. I've been trying to push it onto my buddy for about three years. His favorite band is Slayer so...
Hell, I even failed at pushing it onto you guys when it was first released.
Tell him that The Fall is a sample of the progressive metal album Slayer never made
Actually I would love to have heard Slayer's attempt at prog metal in like 1989
Terms of Surrender is the type of album I'm going to be talking about in 10 years wondering why Black Fast broke up or whatever
As it should be.
nvm I would never want Kerry King's name anywhere near an album like Terms of Surrender
That's about the only thing I could give my buddy credit for. He'd likely suck off every member of Slayer past and present except Kerry.
someone had to be first. unfortunately, kerry king was one of those people.
i still like slayer, though
i love the haunting the chapel ep to this day, and how low-budget it sounds
I like plenty of Slayer, I just hate discussing it with him because he's a bit too into it. Plus he takes random shots at my favorite bands so I take plenty back at Slayer.
it shouldn't be too hard to hit back
they literally wrote a song with the lyrics "GOD HATES US ALL" as the chorus
Disciple actually had a great riff fwiw
I used to love Stuck MOJO
Also, Pigwalk mother FUCKER
No slayer hate in this thread
Welcooooooome... to my church!!!!
Gladwell is a giant meh for me
Sodomize my cross for it now marks your existence.
Dismissal of lucivity, consume my body and blood.
Supplicate for death, obscurity condemns the structure.
Spectral abominations, the gathering of souls.
yeah i like this. it reminds me of a more metal Kyuss and ... something else that's not Kyuss
thanks for being diplomatic about that. i had been that night. i know what they are.
they're still my friends though
Odds of me liking it if I hate Kyuss?
Do you really hate Kyuss? Was there anyone else doing that sort of riffing in 1997 or whatever? At least among rock people
it's not very good then, i suppose. listen to more metal stuff
like the Black Fast album
Blues for the Red Sun and Sky Valley still get regular spins from me. Fantastic road trip music.
Yes I hate them. Love stoner rock but can't stand Kyuss. I'm not saying they weren't influential, they started well before 97.
Not that anyone needs another reason to dislike Arch Enemy. I didn't know the previous singer is now their manager.
i was waiting for a black metal/synthwave marriage
You need to check on Roy, his team shit the bed today. I don't understand your fascination with synthwave.
