Nice. Didn't know Willowtip had picked them up after Relapse seemed to fart on promoting their album.

Here's some stuff I wished I had heard in time for the 2016 poll:

Kosmokrator - First Step Towards Supremacy (excellent, psychedelic death RIYL Krypts, Tongues, Swallowed, etc)

http://initiate-decimation.bandcamp.com/album/first-step-towards-supremacy

Ultha - Converging Sins (epic black metal that incorporates "post-rock" elements without losing the plot)

http://ultha.bandcamp.com/album/converging-sins

Ultha's "Pain Cleanses Every Doubt" (long) EP is available as a pay what you want download there, btw, and is worth listening to and paying for - a bit more doom-influenced than the LP and I think I like it a bit more.

this is not a metal album but it's fucking otherworldly, all the guitars and drums have been thinned out and pushed to the back, it sounds like it's seething

"Ever" sounds like "Goodbye Horses" if it were played on a warped record at an Eyes Wide Shut party. I have no idea how these guys are also in Enthroned. (Or were?)

apologize for making this the "2016 shit I only now heard in 2017" thread but man that Gatecreeper from last year.

I held off on listening to it cos I've grown sick of the 90s Swe-DM sound and all of its neo-emulators but this band, like Entrails, does it very well, w/ taut songwriting.

Neanderthal, Thursday, 12 January 2017 04:33 (two months ago) Permalink

One 2016 album I didn't get to hear until 2017 is Khemmis. I guess I was put off by the nerd-friendly artwork. But it turns out the music itself was worth the hype.

From Malokarpatan:


The final preparations have been done, in March we will be entering the "Dark Ceremonies" Studio Hostivař in Prague to record our new full-lenght album Nordkarpatenland. Same place where Master's Hammer recorded the legendary 1989 demo The Mass, so we hope the spirits of the past will conjure up their magic again during our presence.

To be released by Invictus Productions in Europe and The Ajna Offensive in the US in due course...

Also, I don't even know what this is but it has to be excruciating:

No, seriously? I rate III, IV and V easily among the best black metal albums of the last 15 years, as well as 8½ (with all the guest vocalists). Anyway, I have this theory that as jazz-Shining-with-the-emo-singer adds ever more metal, and metal-Shining adds more jazz, both will eventually fuse into one multinational Shining entity.

Bunch of actually decent bands on Warped Tour this year.

*** "Wouldn't mind seeing" doesn't mean that I love the band but at worst I would go to a show early to catch them if I was going to see the headliner.

anybody besides me on the More Than Sounds mailing list? mainly (only?) a labor-of-love YouTube project that I don't remember signing up for though that doesn't mean I didn't -- their emails always contain totally obscure gems from the past

This a compilation of unknown, but great heavy metal bands in the old style: 80's heavy metal or even hard rock. Some of these bands don't have released albums, but are worth listening to.

More Than Sounds otm, this shit is really cool -- that Albatross tune is Melissa-era KD worship from India, really amazing, and the other stuff doesn't disappoint

Oh, you've gotta hear Gridlink. They were amazing. Especially the third album.

^Yeah! That was my favourite album of 2014.

I think Pallbearer is finally clicking for me. I don't think this new one is such a big leap from their previous stuff, but I'm finding it more engaging. Maybe I'm just starved for some metal to listen to.
