On the same note as Nate's link (although I think this guy has permission to put this stuff up), here's a bandcamp site with links to obscure Irish metal albums from the mid-80s to today: http://irish-metal.bandcamp.com/

Well, I was pretty excited for about the first 8 measures of the Black Breath record. But I didn't make it through the whole thing. I'm totally down with the vocal-as-drum explanation of non-melodic voices in metal. But I don't want to hear someone hitting the same drum over and over, without varying tempo or articulation, whether it's a metaphorical drum or an actual one.

Meanwhile, I really can't stop listening to this new Lyriel album Leverage. On some level it's wildly less impressive than the new Nightwish, of course, but for me it's 80% as gripping on 5% of the artifice, which is proportionally more surprising and maybe even more interesting.

you're trippin Glenn.. that new Black breath owns.. its kinda the same record as the previous one, a couple of different things here and there but its awesome imo... I don't want the vox to sound any other way than they dude.. Dudes voice is great, very powerful

SeanWayne, Friday, 23 March 2012 04:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

actually.. there are some cool surprises.. On my second listen I realized there are asome pretty cool guitar breaks, melodies and solos that were not the norm on the last offering..

another thumbs up for the new Aura Noir here

Just got a press release that The Sword are signing with Razor & Tie... Does this mean hipsters no longer like metal?

Really liking Monnos, the debut full-length of Liverpool stoner/doom warriors Conan. The guitar tone is nice and fat, but the really joy for me is the drumming. Also, love the cover:

these guys own and the drummer is completely great to watch

like he has that performative sense of drama that drummers (or whoever) do when they play v slowly/sparsely, but he's not wacky with it

Cantera: Vulgar Display Of Puyol (DJ Mencap), Tuesday, 27 March 2012 18:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

going to have to check them out sometime.

picked up the new Angel Witch and 3 Inches of Blood albums over lunch, anxious to dig in

Will I see any of you at the Profound Lore showcase in Pomona this Saturday?

What a lineup. If I was anywhere near California I would be there in a heartbeat. Convince 'em all to swing by Chicago.

new meshuggah is fun

Whiney vs. (BradNelson), Wednesday, 28 March 2012 20:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm liking the new(ly released) Líam album MMIX, but I kind of don't want to go check to see if it's actually just a relabeling of one of the Mono albums I haven't played in a while.

glenn mcdonald, Thursday, 29 March 2012 02:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

I heard High On Fire's De Vermis Mysteriis and it's excellent. I listened to all five of the previous albums to see where it fits amongst it all, but I'm a bit wobbly now. So much rock, so much growling. I can't even tell from right and wrong.

Fastnbulbous, Thursday, 29 March 2012 16:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

Not heard it yet but that's the first positive report i've heard of it.

Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:00 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's streaming at NPR. Made it three songs in and decided it was fine, but I don't need more High On Fire in the same way I don't need more Motörhead. I'd just listen to it a few times and shelve it forever. If I want High On Fire I'll pull out Surrounded By Thieves or Blessed Black Wings.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:17 (2 years ago) Permalink

pretty much what everyone said except they included the 1st (and best) album too

Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

death is this communion is really good though

Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

or whatever it was called

Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't like the first record much.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:23 (2 years ago) Permalink

you always were a contrary bugger ;)

Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

I'm really digging the Astra record that came out recently, The Black Chord. More spacey/proggy than heavy, but it mines that early 70s proto-metal vibe pretty well.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:26 (2 years ago) Permalink

not heard that yet either but again a lot say its not as good as the wierding. but im damn well looking forward to hearing it

Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

i prefer to trust my own judgement i guess. Tho if people really hate something it can influence me to avoid it.

Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

Based on this record I need to go back and hear The Weirding. Somehow missed it.

EZ Snappin, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

got pallbearer cd in btw along with a couple of mournful congregation cds. Glorious doom

xp

you're in for a treat. I played a track in outloud once, im sure you were there.

Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think the new Astra's a step up from The Weirding. They're always derivative, but I still thoroughly enjoy their stuff.

A. Begrand, Thursday, 29 March 2012 17:33 (2 years ago) Permalink

Listened to the first High On Fire the other day for the first time in years. It really does sound like a whole different band, but some of my favorite of their songs are on there ("10,000 Years" in particular).

In other news, I have a copy of the upcoming Gojira album and you don't.

誤訳侮辱, Thursday, 29 March 2012 18:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

10,000 years is my alltime fave

Algerian Goalkeeper, Thursday, 29 March 2012 18:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

Interested to hear what you think of the Gojira album, Phil. It's been a very long time coming obviously.

A. Begrand, Thursday, 29 March 2012 18:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

It's really good. They haven't changed their style much - they're still Gojira - but the more young, idea-less djent bands I listen to, the more brilliant these guys sound. Plus, the first song is one of the great album-opening tracks of all time. Seriously crushing.

誤訳侮辱, Thursday, 29 March 2012 18:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah The Black Chord is really awesome, but i'm also totally a sucker for this stuff. i like the more spacey sound than The Weirding. totally unoriginal, retro shit but i'm down.

stan this sick bunt (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Thursday, 29 March 2012 19:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

Art of Self Defense has the best songs. Surrounded By Thieves is the most brutal. Blessed Black Wings has the best sound. After that, I don't care anymore...

Nate Carson, Thursday, 29 March 2012 21:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

These guys are very enthusiastic about the HoF

And holy crap, Gojira! I didn't even know there was an official release date yet, let alone a title! What is the title? And the release date?

I like the new Astra, need to listen more. This sounds promising:
Mares Of Thrace - The Pilgrimage (Sonic Unyon) Apr 24

Fastnbulbous, Friday, 30 March 2012 02:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

The Mares of Thrace album is crushing. Having Sanford Parker produce really brought out the heaviness of their live sound, plus the songs are ace.

A. Begrand, Friday, 30 March 2012 05:13 (2 years ago) Permalink

I like Mares live and on CD. It's more abrasive than a lot of what I listen to these days, but it's really good. Pulls no punches.

Nate Carson, Friday, 30 March 2012 07:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

Seriously though, throw us a bone! What's the new Gojira called, and when's it out?

I've only heard the Mares of Thrace EP on Bandcamp so far, though my bud Collin mastered it. Look forward to hearing it based on this: http://www.doommantia.com/2012/03/mares-of-thrace-pilgrimage.html

Fastnbulbous, Friday, 30 March 2012 15:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

i'm glad to live in a world where women can make such a terrific racket like that.

Do you like generic D-beat from members of Extreme Noise Terror? Well, here you go anyway: http://www.decibelmagazine.com/featured/the-lazarus-pit-disgusts-brutality-of-war/ (watch the YouTube embed, the intro is priceless).

NWOBHamster (J3ff T.), Friday, 30 March 2012 19:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

I have both Disgust albums in my iPod. They're both really good.

誤訳侮辱, Friday, 30 March 2012 19:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

Surprised that there is a High on Fire discussion without Algerian Goalkeeper complaining about the production on Snakes for the Divine.

Also, 10,000 Years and Last off the first album rule.

New High on Fire is growing on me. It's not as immediate as some of their previous work, but there are layers to it.

NWOBHamster (J3ff T.), Friday, 30 March 2012 20:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

layers of skin? lizard skin?

j., Friday, 30 March 2012 20:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

I've got that Disgust album! It is 100% pure generic D-beat, but it's pretty enjoyable. There are/were better Dis- bands though.

The Eyeball Of Hull (Colonel Poo), Friday, 30 March 2012 21:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

Any suggestions? My selection process was basically "crap, blog post due tomorrow, I'll scan my CD collection, hey how about this one."

NWOBHamster (J3ff T.), Friday, 30 March 2012 21:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

I mean, I hate to dispel the illusion…
