i saw them in like 2014 i think. they were good.
I saw them a few years ago, and would also recommend.
Revisiting Reinkaos tonight, listened to it when it came out and was so disappointed I don't think I've listened to it since 2006.
Gonna revisit the shitty Emperor and Dimmy Booger albums tomorrow.
Edit to add: Not sure who Chaos Invocation is but they have a new album I listened to earlier and it was delightful.
Also, Reinkaos was meh as expected.
i saw them touring for Magma a few years ago. it was a really good show. they sounded great and played flawlessly the entire time.
wasn’t expecting this today but i am
always down to see what DsO is up to
Given current events can I interest you guys in some Ukrainian death metal? The bands have new albums released today, the Necrom track is from their demo ep that is a bit rough production wise but they don't have any updated shit on their bandcamp, but the new one is a much better mix.
fuck DsO, imo
their vocalist is Mikko Apsa
Reinkaos is great. I know that opinion is unpopular.
God Of Forbidden Light and Xep-I-Set or however you spell it still regularly in my rotation.
it’s like Carcass’ Swansong album.
saw them in 2008-09 opening for Behemoth and still think about when they played Backbone.
Not really into them anymore but they’re great musicians
Other than checking them out back in the 00's I've never paid any attention to this band.
Best tracks IMO were Black Dragon, Xeper-I-Set and Beyond The Horizon.
Swansong was love at first listen for me.
Edit to add (so I don't make too many individual posts in a row): Went over the two Emperor's I ignored back in the late 90's or whenever they were. IX was better than I remembered, has that muddy mix that I hated when I first heard it. PromNight or whatever it's called was annoying, but I did enjoy a couple tracks from it, Empty/Wordless Chamber/Thorns.
Paracletus was a great album. Unfortunately Mikko Aspa is their vocalist
I absolutely love Emperor, but I only listen to the studio recordings up till Anthems.
If I’m listening to anything off the two you mentioned, it’s in the context of their live records.
god fucking damnit. i love that entire discography.
sorry - know that feeling all too well
one of your favorite artists is rendered unsupportable…it’s brutal
Trying to think of a Kvikksolvguttene pun here
I just read about the Ghost lore with all the Papa’s and had no idea about it and it’s pretty fucking cool. Just thought he changed costumes every so often
Take it to the butt rock thread.
this is the best thing I’ve heard in a while
“medieval” black metal from Denmark
I am about to begin a great 5 weeks:
3/30 Charleston: Slipknot
4/26 Atlanta: Testament / Exodus / Death Angel
4/30 Atlanta: Nine Inch Nails
5/3 Charleston: Megadeth / Lamb of God / Trivium / In Flames
With that album art and genre combo, pretty confident I’ll like this before I listen to a second of it.
Edit: I guess this band is the same guy as Afsky so definitely will check it out
got some good non Metal ones coming up here but not much Metal comes through Nashville and I’m not much for traveling for shows:
04/07 — Boy Harsher
04/16 — The Serfs/VR SEX
04/29 — Molchat Doma
05/11 — Rotting Christ/Borknagar
05/11 — Six Organs of Admittance
05/19 — Primitive Man/Body Void
06/24 — Kraftwerk
08/24 — Blondie/The Damned
but if anyone on here comes to Nashville for Metal shows and I’m missing them, post em in here if you hear of any good ones
i'm going to Rotting Christ a few days before you. should be amazing, they are one of my favorite bands.
i figured you would like it
vocals are pretty wild, has like a black metal meets king diamond thing going on
Yeah he’s reminding me some of Rainer Landfermann in delivery style
If you guys just dig medieval stuff in general I suggest checking out some acts like The Soil Bleeds Black, The Moon Lays Hidden Beneath A Cloud and to a lesser extent the absolutely amazing Sopor Aeternus and the Ensemble of Shadows.
Oh and also obviously the seminal Dead Can Dance.
Asfky dude definitely got dem riffs, boi
I saw Watain reference this artist on their ig
googled them and was quite frightened by the imagery
Im scared to check out the music lol
Oh that’s pretty interesting about Watain. I’ve never been a fan but nice to see they have good taste. Sopor Aeternus is an interesting blend; they’re like orchestral/baroque/medieval meets goth rock/death rock meets German avant-pop aka Dagmar Krause. It takes some digesting but I think it’s incredibly rewarding. It’s worth just checking out the whole scene from which it sprang — Neue Deutsche Todeskunst if dark wave/post punk/ebm ever falls into your wheelhouse of tastes. (Oh I should say early AUTUMN TEARS is another great old medieval band.)
Man, this is some cool shit
It took awhile but I did end up completing my 90's female fronted symphonic/goth/doom quest. Now I'm going to rank them because yeah.
01. Nightwish (ranking was never in question)
02. Within Temptation (ranking also never in question)
04. Theatre Of Tragedy
06. Leaves' Eyes
07. After Forever (I overlooked them back in the day)
08. Madder Mortem (it's all about that sensational debut)
09. Lacuna Coil (these guys are a bit overrated)
10. The Gathering (speaking of overrated, christ)
11. Rain Fell Within (short discography didn't do them any favors)
13. The Sins Of Thy Beloved (your beloved is worthless)
14. Meshuggah (just wanted to point out that their new one leaked today)
I am a fanboy, but the new Meshuggah rules.
What is their best album in your opinion?
not him but it’s irrefutably obZen
I've heard several people say that.. What about second best? (I have never heard obZen but plan to).
Destroy, Eras, Improve was the last album I heard, believe it or not
we had a fairly spirited back and forth on this 2-3 pages back in this thread, has some good commentary on their discography
it’s obZen by a mile, by the way
the rest don’t really compare
Obzen is where you start for sure. Chaosphere has probably their most popular song. I like Koloss a lot too.
Would stay away from Catch 33 unless you really love everything else.
then you've heard their best
the metal masses have confirmed
that being said I'm about to listen to the new one
I'll keep my comments to myself for once.
Kampfar; The Meshuggah of Black Metal
How is the pompous Folk Metal style (80% of what Napalm Records signs) not the worst thing to happen to music since Rap/Metal? I love old rap. I love metal. Hardcore, sure. I can even do some metalcore if done right. Can't do this troll/folk shit.
I haven’t explored any folk metal in years however I always liked Hades, Agalloch, Otyg/Vintersorg, Orphaned Land, Amorphis and Windir.
Whoa, whoa, whoa... two completely different worlds.
and when they're not signing horrific 'folk' bands they're signing shit like this:
Oooohhhhh, new black metal band. Don't know anything about them other than from Poland and none of the lyrics are English. Those Poland bands can be sketchy but I'm hoping this one isn't cause I kinda like it.
Looked at buying Dying Fetus tickets today for a show over a month out, I must be interneting wrong because it showed the only option is a resold ticket for over $250.00.
