stuff from the new-ish Abigail Williams album popped up in my shuffle
this album still rips
Gojira was always a band that I respected because of From Mars to Sirius and they absolutely killed live, but I've been listening to their full discography over the last few days. Somehow they might even be underrated
i mean good lord
also mario duplantier reminds me of neil peart in the best kind of way. someone who is an incredible musician but isn't playing like he is the "main dude" in the band.
one thing that metal bands are stupid as fuck about is t-shirt design. give me the band logo and art only. no lyrics. no album titles. no other bullshit.
looking at the gojira merch store now and this shirt sparked my years-old pet peeve here
give me your honest take on Gojira
i don't love Pantera but Gojira makes that style work imo
or anyone's honest take on Gojira really
we're all just sitting here
Mario Duplantier is really fucking good. I've never gotten into Gorjira, but I've also never heard anything of theirs that I hate.
even their more "mainstream" songs rip. this part is so good
It's not for me, but my beef was with your underrated comment. 20 million views on a youtube doesn't scream underrated metal band to me, not to mention tours with bands that play in 15,000-20,000 capacity venues.
Are we on lockdown yet? I don't watch the news.
that's fair. i just meant in terms of the way that people who like metal talk about great bands
obviously there is a bunch of luck involved with making it "big" so "great bands" might be a loaded phrase but i didnt mean it to be
you should be treating it that way if you haven't been already
I'm isolated in general, no neighbors or nonsense, just the dog and I.
If I do end up with this thing, however, I will be crossing the bridge into Portland and licking every doorknob I find.
i'm lit and listening to stuff from classic albums that i love but haven't got into in awhile
the song Divinations from Mastodon's Crack the Skye just owns. the riffs. the tightness of the whole band together. the surf guitar solo.
Mastodon is also the best live band I've seen in terms of their playing and it's not even close. And Gojira opened for them
also among other things i bought yesterday from bandcamp, i snagged this terrible shirt for $25
electronic you're in here
what are you listening to, if anything?
Been crushing the new Intronaut and the King Gizzard from last year. Also been using the opportunity to dive deeper into old King Crimson stuff that I never really listened to.
burnttatertot what are you listening to today?
And Gorod’s album from 2018.
I don’t really like either of them, but I’ve been spinning Car Bomb’s album and the HU.
stuff you'd hate
King Gizzard rules.
Intronaut also rules.
After listening to so much comical technical playing and just overplaying in general, which I do love but it's kind of obnoxious really, and then listening to bands like King Crimson and Yes from the early 70s who just rip in a much more subdued style... it makes me wonder why these bands aren't more popular
Only album from Gojira I like is FMTS. Never really could get into the rest.
I just ordered the new split from Mare Cognitum/Spectral Lore on vinyl. It’s basically a double album with both bands, not really a split.
Pesci you should check out Spectral Lore’s Gnosis album.
hell yeah, Gorod. Bekhten's Curse has been steady in my playlist since that album came out. that tapped guitar riff,
for anyone who may not be familiar
thanks. i didn't mean to leave anyone out in terms of tagging, it just seemed like it was only us 3 in here. always appreciate your recs
i liked this, though
it pisses me off when i see people talking about john mayer being one of the great living guitar players for bending a note when some poor french guitar player is tapping out that Bekhten's Curse riff
Odin what are you listening to
Don't worry, I got this.
Eewwww, they're from Portland too.
"technical death core"
sorry dawg but that's a no for me
i thought this was really good
i really hate deathcore
i am a sucker for big guitar harmonies so i like this already
i enjoy albums that are one cohesive piece of music that establish a nice base early and builds on it throughout
mostly i dont want to have to remember song names
i've been observing that there is a plethora of fresh (newish) death metal bands out there doing exciting stuff.
here's my list
- Blood Incantation
- Chapel of Disease
- Hooded Menace
- Rivers of Nihil
- Sulphur Aeon
- Temple of Void
- Tomb Mold
who am i missing?
of these, Chapel of Disease (thx burnttatertot), Rivers of Nihil, Sulphur Aeon, and Slugdge are my favorites.
oh man give me a minute
Horrendous and Of Feather And Bone are two that I missed.
Been listening to Deceased today. This album rips
Really good write up on Hellenic black metal, especially the masters, Rotting Christ
That's a damn good list, minus the Rivers of course, I can't figure them out.
Love older Horrendous, can't seem to get into what they've done lately. Same goes for Tribulation, the old stuff is great but the new not so much.
This album and Fearless are my two favs.
RC is one of my favorite bands, will definitely check this out.
