    new collaborative album out from Mizmor and Thou. i guess they recorded it in the lead up to Roadburn Festival.

    blackened sludge/doom metal. pretty wild stuff.

    Stellar depressive raw black metal



    so what do you guys normally listen to when not listening to Metal?

    When it starts getting warm out I always tend towards bluegrass/folk/psyche stuff, just discovered this group out of North Carolina that does sort of ambient gospel/bluegrass shit. Solid stuff —



    also solid Belgian psyche if any of you ever got into the Funeral Fog records stuff from the mid 00s, this is kind of a continuation of that sound

    pretty wide ranging tastes, but I’m a big hip hop / rap fan. Flatbush Zombies, Benny The Butcher, Freddie Gibbs are good examples of current artists that I like, in addition to the classics.

    also love dance music, deep house, house, and techno. Hot Since 82, Maya Jane Coles, Ida Engberg, Amelie Lens.

    dabble in a little bit of indie-type stuff too, Warpaint, DIIV, Foals, Toro y Moi.

    have an awesome double header this weekend

    Knocked Loose and Kublai Khan on Friday

    Rotting Christ and Borknagar on Saturday

    both are small club venues. couldn’t be more stoked to finally see RC.

    that's awesome. both should be amazing.

    one of the best concerts i ever saw was At The Gates in 2008/09 for their first tour as a reunited band.

    AC broke in the venue during the middle of summer; was probably 110 degrees. the entire crowd was one big surge / pit.

    when Tompa yelled out "GO", shit just exploded.

    new WAKE album was announced today.

    progressive death / grind with a healthy dose of melody, from Canada.

    last album and last EP were excellent. new song sounds great.

    Rotting Christ on Saturday was so so good. i haven't enjoyed their new atmospheric tribal direction as much, but those songs are so awesome live with all the chanting and crowd call & response. they played a great mix of stuff, with 3-4 songs from the 90s albums.

    Borknagar was also excellent. it was pretty incredible to see such a legendary band from that scene. Abigail Williams ruled too - their drummer was a monster.

    got to meet both Sakis from RC and ICS Vortex from Borknagar (and 1 million other Norwegian bm bands). i highly recommend seeing this tour

    ***

    also saw Knocked Loose on Friday, which was predictably different: super violent and high energy. was fighting for my life (in a good way!)

    the Archspire/Entheos/Inferi tour is so good. all of those bands are incredible live. managed to catch it in atlanta and chicago

    the stand-up routine archspire’s vocalist insists on working on in between songs is super cringe tho

    Saw Opeth and Mastodon last night. They were having technical issues all night and I ended up leaving early because they were running so far behind and it was getting late. Major buzzkill.

    more the former. was your classic hardcore pit, spin kicks and elbows everywhere, for literally 100% of the time they were playing.

    it was fun, but your head had to be on a swivel.

    Fun fact - The very first pressing of Stream from June 1991 has a different (proper) master while all the represses on and after August 1991 were victims to the loudness war.

    Death never really "clicked" with me. I thought they were ok, but not the greatest ever....

    Osdm:
    1. Carcass
    2. Immolation
    3a: Morbid Angel
    3b: Obituary
    3c: Bolt Thrower

    what’s your top 3?

    Death are so unique sounding to me. It’s not just Chuck’s vocals, but the riffs and tone are unmistakably theirs.

    I think Chuck should get a lot of credit for (a) arguably inventing death metal as a genre, and (b) making virtuosity and musicianship something people associate with extreme metal.

    Oh man.... Gun to my head I would have to say Bolt Thrower. Although Slowly We Rot and Blessed are the Sick are two of my all-time favorites.
    Funny story, it was 1997 and I was on my second date with my cheerleader girlfriend and I felt comfortable enough around her to play "Fall from Grace" in the car on the way to meet her parents. At first she was making the "yuck" face until THAT RIFF hit and I saw her eyebrows raise and just the faintest hint of a smile come over her face. She said "that was kinda cool" and I just said "damn right it was" and three years later we were married and have been together ever since.
    I still can't get her to agree that "Fall From Grace " is"our song" but deep down she knows it.
    Even people I know that HATE metal admit that riff is cool

    i could never really get into Morbid Angel, but respect their legacy.

    i just listened to that song - assume you mean the slow, nasty riff that starts at 4:30 or so?
