Three seems to be the magic number for my favorite metal albums for Metallica, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Kreator and Megadeth. Album #2 for Napalm Death, Slough Feg, High On Fire and Mercyful Fate. For Mastodon, Gojira and Hammers of Misfortune I've got #4, Black Sabbath and Neurosis #5, Entombed and Scorpions #6, Opeth #8. Hopefully Baroness' #3 (not counting EPs) will be my favorite.

Entombed?

Siegbran, Thursday, 17 May 2012 19:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

i can't even think what the hell the 6th entombed album would even be. uprising is the only later entombed i still listen to. and i mostly just listen to it for the first song. unsane rubbed off on them on that album. unsane and motorhead. which is fine by me.

scott seward, Thursday, 17 May 2012 19:33 (1 year ago) Permalink

Hellz yeah, Entombed - Uprising. Great album.

Fastnbulbous, Thursday, 17 May 2012 19:36 (1 year ago) Permalink

siegbran doesn't even want to KNOW about entombed after clandestine. this much i know. i've known this for years, actually.

scott seward, Thursday, 17 May 2012 19:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

Uprising is super awesome rad. MOTORDEATH

Maryland Deathfest in one week. Anyone else going?

I'll be there. And at the YOB show in NYC on 5/23. Then I'm home for three days before Scion Rock fest and WM tour. Phew!

Nice! Will have to check that out. I need to get a subscription...

Saw Narrows, Retox and Early Graves last night.. the sound sucked-ass for EG and Retox, but the drummer for EG, who is a soundman in his own right, totally fixed the sound for Narrows, and they destroyed SF.. EG was great despite the shitty sound and Retox was, egh..

oh rad i fuckin love narrows

call all destroyer, Tuesday, 22 May 2012 02:35 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah... it wasn't packed, like not enough to have that big piece of man meat singer trying to stage dive, but he did it anyway...lol! got the sleepy Sunday crowd going for their set for sure..

It made me realize though... the bands that have that strong root in Hradcore, no matter how far they stray from it, always know how to wake a crowd up and put on a good show, without being pretentious in anyway.. that shit was real, raw, and heart felt.

I really like the song Greenland off the last Narrows album. It's like the country, all weird, fucked up and shit.

The new Grand Magus is really good; hits that sweet spot between classic Judas Priest and Amon Amarth.

誤訳侮辱, Tuesday, 22 May 2012 11:06 (1 year ago) Permalink

Also excellent: the new Dawnbringer. I find Profound Lore's catalog way more miss than hit, but this one's a killer.

The Grand Magus and Dawnbringer albums are outstanding. Hooky, powerful stuff. A bit silly how the Dawnbringer is a concept album yet no lyrics are included!

And Chuck, that Halestorm album is growing on me.

Oh, and Crazy Lixx is great fun.

Oh man, that Grand Magus record is killer – made me happy I just got a new car with USB capabilities so I can rock out to it while driving.

I knew it was a good idea to start reducing my antidepressants at the start of the year. I'm actually getting really excited about the Slayer day of IBYM in London now.

Is anyone going?

Seeing Yob for the first time and the Melvins should be amazing if the new album's anything to go by.

Ima Skim Read That Bitch (Doran), Wednesday, 23 May 2012 18:50 (1 year ago) Permalink

Wish I was going this weekend but will content myself with Harvey Milk tonight instead.

Rockin'. They're usually ace. Seeing them on Saturday.

Ima Skim Read That Bitch (Doran), Wednesday, 23 May 2012 19:08 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah, this Grand Magus album is solid, in the solidest sense of solidity. Metal in the oldest, grandest, Steppenwolf-and-Deep-Purple-invented-this tradition.

glenn mcdonald, Wednesday, 23 May 2012 19:18 (1 year ago) Permalink

"Starlight Slaughter" totally sounds like Down to Earth era Rainbow.

A. Begrand, Wednesday, 23 May 2012 19:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

That song has been stuck in my head. I love catchy songs about werewolves!

Hellhamster 2: Hamster Smashed Face (J3ff T.), Wednesday, 23 May 2012 19:27 (1 year ago) Permalink

Awesome show all round. A Norwegian (?) sludge band playing their second ever show were a blinding start, then Hey Colossus (who I have always managed to miss until now) totally knocked me out.

Harvey Milk completely brought it though, with a sludge doom first half culminating in Anvil Will Fall, then an unexpected Shame ushering in a totally rocking second half. We also got an encore of Lay My Head Down in defiance of the curfew which you might not get at the weekend. Creston's voice is in seriously bad shape though, so I wouldn't actually like to predict just what you'll get at the weekend.

I must be old, I recognise nobody in ITV2 idents (aldo), Wednesday, 23 May 2012 23:11 (1 year ago) Permalink

Hey Colossus are awesome. How was the drumming? They've recently picked up Tim Cedar - frontman of Part Chimp - on sticks.

Ima Skim Read That Bitch (Doran), Wednesday, 23 May 2012 23:39 (1 year ago) Permalink

Haha, I was pretty sure it was him but thought it too odd a change to be right. Drumming was great, he hits hard and the second last track had some really strange tempo changes and stop-starts that seemed to suit his style well.

Doran: I'm going to the Slayer IBYM show. I'm particularly looking forward to seeing Sleep.

good luck in your pyramid (Neil S), Thursday, 24 May 2012 08:09 (1 year ago) Permalink

what do you guys think of the Scion support of heavy music? Is it a bullshit way for some corp to get their name into the minds of unsuspecting folks or is it just a cool thing for metal in general, good bands, getting good money to do good free shows..

I've had some lengthy discussions both online and in person with a lot of folks, what does ILM think?
Are they supporting heavy music, or are they trying desperately to infiltrate the underground to sell cars?

SeanWayne, Thursday, 24 May 2012 08:25 (1 year ago) Permalink

and on a related note.. Enabler has the drummer from Fall Out Boy playing drums for them... does this ruin street cred, or does it even fucking matter?

SeanWayne, Thursday, 24 May 2012 08:27 (1 year ago) Permalink

I was at HM last night and thought it was great - Creston's voice didn't strike me as being notably shot, haven't listened to em for a long ass time tbh so maybe it just sounded like old man blues croak. love their idea of a 'party' set for the second half

Hey C were great when they were in a groove, less so when trying to find it (and when the sound levels were all rong) but fukkit I love them. first band are called Hark, are not Norwegian, and have the singer from Taint in if you know them

will be at IBYM on Friday only, daresay I'll see you there JD

cissémanwhore (DJ Mencap), Thursday, 24 May 2012 10:32 (1 year ago) Permalink

only loosely au fait with Enabler but the drummer came up through 90s bands like Racetraitor iirc? always understood that to be where most of FoB started out, bands-wise

Great stuff, hopefully see you both there. I'm so excited I'm going to go down when it opens and watch half of Storm Of Light and half of They Live. Thanks for the spotify. As soon as my boy wakes up from his nap I'm going to stick that on. (Or if his naps goes on to long perhaps I'll put it on before he wakes up.)

NP. I've just added some WITTR for the sake of completeness. Will keep an eye out tomorrow!

The fact that you have had "lengthy discussions" on this subject makes me very, very sad. "The underground" is not a real thing that exists, and if it did, it would not exactly be a major source of purchasing power. Also, the idea of "unsuspecting folks" being stealth-marketed to by corporations is a bad joke. It's 2012; no one is "unsuspecting" if they're past the age of, say, five. I think there's been sufficient testimony regarding artistic non-interference from the actual musicians involved that the "metal community" can happily accept the free music and, if the sight of a Scion logo offends you, put your hands over your eyes as you listen.

i have no problem with scionfest as its got good bands but

"The underground" is not a real thing that exists
fuck off. Just because you dont have a clue doesn't mean it doesn't exist. There's thousands of DIY labels out there. Take your inverse snobbery and shove it up your roadrunner shilling arse.

at the risk of stunting the growth of another amusing ILM beef, I suspect you've misinterpreted what he was getting at there

cissémanwhore (DJ Mencap), Thursday, 24 May 2012 13:29 (1 year ago) Permalink

ie my reading was that it wasn't a tangible and rigidly definable thing, so strictly speaking couldn't be 'infiltrated'
