Ha, I was just coming here to link it. Well, while I'm here: http://www.decibelmagazine.com/featured/the-lazarus-pit-angel-dusts-enlighten-the-darkness/

That track you embedded is really solid. Didn't think I'd like it, but you're slowly making me appreciate power metal again.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 16 March 2012 19:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's a genre with really a lot of dreck in it, but when something in it hits me, it hits me hard. Angel Dust are one of those bands that do the style really, really well, and get zero credit for it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SEAN

fuck deathcore and metalcore (Algerian Goalkeeper), Sunday, 18 March 2012 16:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

thanks Kerr!

Hey Konybrony--there are LOTS of metal bands with great singers and great production. You're on the trail man.

That Pallbearer album is good, another solid Profound Lore release.

good luck in your pyramid (Neil S), Monday, 19 March 2012 09:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

This new Black Breath album is intense. As presented I'd say it is a good, solid record. However, if this was 15 minutes long I would love it to death. Even though it is a relatively short half-hour the intensity leaves me tired and a little bored. I appreciate that they try to change things up a bit by varying some tempos (particularly in the second half of the album), but even those initially slower songs tend to ramp right back up into the same tempo as everything else. I hope that songs like "The Flame" and "Obey" are received well, because they are trying to expand their palette of sounds (even if the former does escalate to familiar territory). A great record in small doses.

Oh wow, you guys, I've never listened to a Sigh record before and I'm listning to In Somniphobia right now. This is not at all what I expected, but I really like the OTTness of it all.

I haven't heard the new one yet but you should also check out imaginary sonicscape. that is a classic.

(⊙_⊙?) (Alan N), Monday, 19 March 2012 15:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

scenes from hell was also strong, I thought. it's what got me back on board after losing interest for a few years.

(⊙_⊙?) (Alan N), Monday, 19 March 2012 15:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

and pretty much everything these guys have ever done is way, WAY OTT.

(⊙_⊙?) (Alan N), Monday, 19 March 2012 15:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

Thanks, I'll definitely be checking out more after this. For some reason, I always assumed they would be some sort of deadly serious band like Corrupted or whatever, did not expect this!

stan this sick bunt (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 March 2012 15:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, the new Sigh album is easily their most interesting work since Imaginary Sonicscape, which is their best.

tweet from the promoter of tonight's black metal extravaganza mentioned upthread:

Nachtmystum weren't "feeling sxsw & decided to go home" Fucking BS!

So no Nachtmystium and no Bruce Lamont. Not cool, but this should mean the other bands get longer sets. And it is total fucking BS.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 March 2012 18:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

That is "fucking BS". I don't understand the point of pull that shit either, its not like Nachtmystium are at a level where they can all fly first class down to Austin and turn around on a whim. Seems insane to travel all the way from Chicago to Austin and not even bother to do a show.

stan this sick bunt (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 March 2012 19:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

This was supposed to be a special gig before they headed out - a short trip to Dallas, play with some friends, make a few bucks, head on home.

Oh well - Alcest gets to be the headliner again.

laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaame

why is the nachtmystium guy such a dick?

call all destroyer, Monday, 19 March 2012 19:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

well now i can make fun of him for always wearing unbelievably tight pants
nice pants

Laura Lucy Lynn (La Lechera), Monday, 19 March 2012 19:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

I hope the show goes on - line of storms coming through an hour before show time with tornados and torrential rain, and huge numbers of power outages expected. Winds already gusting in the 50 mph range.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

That's pretty metal.

NWOBHamster (J3ff T.), Monday, 19 March 2012 20:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

True. And pretty wet.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

3-6" rain in next 24-36 hours.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:29 (2 years ago) Permalink

with tornados and torrential rain
i read this as tomatoes and loled

Laura Lucy Lynn (La Lechera), Monday, 19 March 2012 20:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

Sounds like Nice Pants may have had the right idea.

Ha ha, Nicepantsium

NWOBHamster (J3ff T.), Monday, 19 March 2012 20:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

Biggest problem is nice pants didn't tell the booker until he was back in Chicago this afternoon. No chance to round up anyone else for the bill.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

More details coming out: Nachtmystium asked to play on the bill a couple of weeks ago. Booker didn't pursue them. Booker was then forced to reschedule to a larger venue because Nachtmystium apparently hasn't played here either at all or since the first record (not sure on that part), so their fans helped sell out the smaller venue very quickly.

Incredibly unprofessional.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 March 2012 20:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

wow NachtmysiBUMS amirite?

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 March 2012 21:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

I kinda feel like Hot Topic should slide a copy of a Sigh album in with every copy of Iwrestledabearonce, to show the kids how the genre-mashing thing is really done.

stan this sick bunt (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 March 2012 21:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh my god i love everything about this sigh record

thank you dudes

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Monday, 19 March 2012 21:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

new one is definitely their best since Imaginary. Hangman's Hymn felt a little too straightforward and the production on Scenes from Hell was far too muddy.

NWOBHamster (J3ff T.), Monday, 19 March 2012 21:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

yea hangman's hymn was a big letdown for me and the production was terrible on that one too.

(⊙_⊙?) (Alan N), Monday, 19 March 2012 21:49 (2 years ago) Permalink

altho I don't think I heard the reissue

mr. tightpants sounds like a douche btw

ok listening to this new sigh album.

sax solo - check

hasn't Nachtmystium guy been kind of a dick from the jump? really puzzling to me how many people rep for that band who do not seem very interesting to me. Like I'm not a giant Alcest fan but I can see how you might be, but Nachtmystium, that one I don't really see how they're better than "local black metal opener"

that was part of the schtick for that record tho wasn't it? like, venom-style?

Maybe? It didn't work.

the v excellent 'somniphobia' just sold me on this ridiculous album, guys

Yes please!

yeah, not really a fan, but if it appeals, there arent too many bands that would fit that description

Has anyone heard 90s black metal Sigh? Is that stuff any good?

NWOBHamster (J3ff T.), Monday, 19 March 2012 22:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

I was hoping Nachtmystium would convert me to fandom by seeing them live. Instead, if Alcest gets an extra 10 minutes I'll be just as happy.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 19 March 2012 22:27 (2 years ago) Permalink

iirc 90s bm sigh is decent but the best parts are what they ended up running wild with on later albums anyway (i.e. tablas, sax, pan flute, etc.)

Yeah, I like these albums a lot too but I will not vouch for their work ethic, questionable costuming, or primadonna tendencies.
