    Man, I really wanted 666MrDoom to work out for me, but there's just no variety at all with his uploads

    Sucks so damn hard that SMOD ended up being such a piece of shit

    Amon Amarth is mediocre enough these days, but now we have all these poor mans Amon clones popping up everywhere, so nauseating.

    It's been a shitty last few days for new album listening, and this new Khemmis EP isn't helping the situation at all.

    After 3 days of nothing but garbage I finally found something semi-decent to listen to.

    Is there some sort of rule where thrash metal from Italy must be third rate or worse?

    This is going on right now. Doesn't appear to be live performances, but still interesting.

    that Uada song was fairly underwhelming, almost poppy. this is coming from someone who likes that band a lot.

    recent events have made me reevaluate the bands that have the honor of adorning my battle jacket. i will be making some changes that probably should have been made a long time ago.

    out:
    Drudkh
    Mgla
    Agalloch
    Taake

    in:
    Revocation
    Rivers of Nihil
    Sulphur Aeon
    Bolt Thrower

    my vest has much less black metal now, which is probably my favorite genre, but i cannot support or be associated with that type of shit in any manner. fuck those bands and their actions for even making this a consideration.

    the low end isn't as washed out. but it's probably not going to change how you feel about that sound

    the production reminds me of this band that i first heard on the legendary radio FENRIZ

    I'm sure I've brought this album up before, but god damnit, it's so good. Listened to the whole thing on the way home from camping the other day, made me inadvertently drive 90 mph at some parts.

    Almost halfway through 2020, here's my current Top 5 AOTY contenders (in no particular order).

    Xibala - Anos en Infierno
    Pomona, CA
    hardcore-influenced brutal death metal with pre-Columbian Mesoamerican lyrical content




    In The Company Of Serpents - Lux
    Denver, CO
    fresh-sounding sludge/doom/post with strong Neurosis vibes; very memorable songwriting




    Wake - Devouring Ruin

    Calgary, AB
    excellent songwriting, accessible and yet unrelentingly harsh death/grind




    Ulcerate - Stare Into Death And Be Still
    New Zealand
    crushingly dense death metal, an undercurrent of weird melodies - standout musicianship




    Spectral Lore/Mare Cognitum - Wanderers: Astrology of the Nine
    Athens, Greece/Portland, OR
    staggering scope and composition, cerebral atmospheric black metal soundtrack to the cosmos

    i appreciate this. for whatever reason i haven't had the same desire to find new stuff over the past 3 months as i usually do.

    i did listen to Death's Individual Thought Patterns about 50 times though

    Yes, their previous work was just too complex and dense for me. Always appreciated them as a band, just weren’t for me. This album changed that.

    i respect the idea and aesthetics of Bell Witch more than i actually like their music. just too slow for me most of the time. i will check out their new release though.

    a band that needs to be on your radar is Inexorum, from Minnesota.

    they play melodic black metal in the vein of Sacramentum, Dissection and (more recently) bands like Vanum, Wayfarer, and Uada. they share members with Obsequiae, another awesome melodic black metal band (also Minnesota-based).

    they just released a new record:

    I liked it. It’s not as heavy as Mirror Reaper but is more condensed.

    Need an album, they didn't sound the same throughout their career. And why do you want a clone anyway?
