I'll be doing this VERY differently this year, but here's where (I hope) I'll be keeping up with you guys better this year.
ILM's Rolling Metal Thread 2016

Does that make you mutter, under your breath, “Damn”? (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 2 January 2016 06:07 (five years ago) link

Following that.

So my first thing I liked from last year (which is a reissue of stuff from the 90s) and am bringing up this year is Barathrum's "Jetblack Warmetal" comp. It's not war metal in the usual blasting sense, but bass-heavy (THREE BASSISTS! TWO GUITARISTS!) crude black metal with some Mediterranean influences and some Beherit vibes. Very noisy.

Anything good coming up this month?

stupid children forever (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Saturday, 2 January 2016 08:49 (five years ago) link

For me personally, new Master and Brutus. And well I suppose Abbath.

Devilock, Saturday, 2 January 2016 16:08 (five years ago) link

Oh and I'd love for the new Borknagar to blow me away. But ... eh.

Devilock, Saturday, 2 January 2016 16:11 (five years ago) link

There's a new Ehnahre coming out this month and it's great. Super weird, lots of piano. The first track sounds like the beginning of a Cecil Taylor album, where he's striking what seem like random keys and reciting sound poetry in that weird croaking voice.

the top man in the language department (誤訳侮辱), Saturday, 2 January 2016 19:17 (five years ago) link

I was wondering when Ehnahre would re-emerge, I knew they were working on something. Really looking forward to that one.

To start off 2016 on my end, I will say that the new Oranssi Pazuzu album is very, very exciting.

And the new Holy Grail and megadeth albums are ace as well!

A. Begrand, Monday, 4 January 2016 04:27 (five years ago) link

New Oranssi Pazuzu! Great news.

VOIVOD announce 'Post Society EP' release

http://www.centurymedia.com/media/news/large/635864369564106525.jpg

Canadian progressive sci-fi metal innovators VOIVOD are pleased to announce the release of Post Society EP Mini-CD. This special release will be available in Digipak CD format as well as digital download on February 26th, 2016 via Century Media Records.

The Post Society EP, with artwork by VOIVOD drummer Michel "Away" Langevin, contains 5 studio tracks, including the previously vinyl-only new VOIVOD songs from the split 7" EP's with label-mates At The Gates and Napalm Death, two brand new songs and a Hawkwind cover ("Silver Machine") total playing time of 30 minutes. Here is the track-listing:

VOIVOD - Post Society - EP
1. Post Society (06:17)
2. Forever Mountain (05:12)
3. Fall (06:42)
4. We Are Connected (07:26)
5. Silver Machine (04:48)

Michel "Away" Langevin checked in to comment on the release as follows: "More songs from out in the woods! In between tours, we are steadily finding our way through recording the next album at RadicArt studio. Many riffs were composed on the bus but until the North American tour with Vektor in 2016, we will spend most of wintertime in Montreal writing another batch of material. Meanwhile, we hope you will enjoy this EP of good old thrash-prog-punk-metal or whatever people want to call Voïvod nowadays :)"

Always excited about new Voivod and a Hawkwind cover to boot!

Volahn but their album last year was good

Dude, thanks for mentioning this - saw it at a shop today and between your mention and the Iron Bonehead logo I figured I'd buy it. It's really good, somehow manages to balance kind of proggy elements with a really vicious rawness. And the guitar is great, all of these elaborate little filigrees and the almost necro-surf tone he has.

stupid children forever (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Wednesday, 6 January 2016 12:41 (five years ago) link

I guess they're debatably metal now but I really love the advance track from the latest album by The Body, No One Deserves Happiness (out 3/18):

Kat?ßas?? (ultros ultros-ghali), Thursday, 7 January 2016 21:03 (five years ago) link

Oh man, if you like your metal supermelodic, check out this album The Deviant Hearts, by Phantasma. I missed this completely when it came out a couple months ago, but it's Charlotte Wessels from Delain, Oliver Philipps from Everon and George Neuhauser from Serenity. It's phenomenal.

glenn mcdonald, Friday, 8 January 2016 00:29 (five years ago) link

Saw the first great show of the year - the quadruple New(ish) Jack Thrash bill of Warbringer, Enforcer, Exmortus and Cauldron.

Enforcer were amazing, like Hanoi Rocks gone thrash. The singer had eyeliner and leather and was genuinely charismatic and hamming it up and was in general a lot of fun.

I also loved Exmortus' neoclassical thrash (picked up the brand new one from them at the merch booth), Cauldron's sense of economy and Warbringer brought it as well.

Just a fun night with four bands that all had different strengths and played to them perfectly.

Loud guitars shit all over "Bette Davis Eyes" (NYCNative), Friday, 8 January 2016 08:06 (five years ago) link

I tried to get into Warbringer recently, can't stand that vocal recording style. Feel like I'm listening for polyps on the guy's vocal chords.

Enforcer sounds pretty good though.

Man, I'm digging on this Bison Machine, which Tom at PunkNews hipped me to https://www.punknews.org/review/14110/bison-machine-hoarfrost

Stoner metal is not usually my bag, but this is working for me on account of some solid hooks/grooves and a mildly paradoxical combo of cut--it-with-a-knife guitar tone and agreeably lo-fi, no-frills production values. Came for the 4 minute jam, staying for the duration.

summervillain, Friday, 8 January 2016 16:16 (five years ago) link

How is the Witchcraft? I see its been released on bandcamp

I had bookmarked it there but apparently they've deleted their bandcamp :/

moans and feedback (Dinsdale), Friday, 8 January 2016 20:59 (five years ago) link

Ondt Blod's Finnmark is sort of a cross between Converge-style noisy hardcore and Kvelertak, with a few less guitar heroics than that implies, and more clean vocals in the catchy parts. Like Kvelertak, it's all in Norsk, but that doesn't matter much. There's a sample track on Soundcloud.

Andy Marshall of Saor has a new project called Fuath that's supposed to be hypnotic atmospheric black metal, album planned for 1st of Feb. First thing I'm interested in this year!

really enjoying teh fuck out of the Taphos Nomos.

I like the Exmortus too but I still feel like the vocals are bland and a wasted opportunity.

saw Nile the other night- they kicked ass. saw 1349 and am convinced they are really boring live (Tombs were great tho).

Kampfar album is solid too

Hammer Smashed Bagels, Wednesday, 13 January 2016 01:14 (five years ago) link

Behemoth's coming back around on tour in the US, playing The Satanist in its entirety. The more interesting thing about this tour, for me anyway, is that Myrkur is opening. I might go, catch her, and leave.

You'd be doing it exactly wrong

stupid children forever (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Wednesday, 13 January 2016 02:30 (five years ago) link

I saw Behemoth on their last US tour, with Cannibal Corpse, Aeon and Tribulation. I didn't like them.

I just now briefly considered going then realized the Atlanta show -- where I am -- was tonight. Probably for the best; I'm not really a show-goer anymore.

Devilock, Thursday, 14 January 2016 03:56 (five years ago) link

yes, many xposts, the volahn record is great. i love blastbeats behind half-time guitars. well, they're not really half-time but they certainly don't warrant a blastbeat necessarily. bm meat puppets?

it's an effect that really works with darkspace/paysage d'hiver. in fact, volahn is the stifling, central american summer answer to paysage's frosty swiss winter.

Yelploaf, Thursday, 14 January 2016 05:37 (five years ago) link

xpost welp you didn't miss much. DS's sound was garbage to the point of incomprehension so I left midway through. might have been the venue but it sounded like a guy trying to start his car in the mud while a bunch of gazelles occasionally made sound in the distance

The new one is really good, as is the one before, Occult Rock. They have no bad records, but those two are definitely orders of magnitude better than what came before.

New Witchcraft is streaming on Spotify. I like it quite a bit but it's not particularly metallic.

I mean, the band was never full-on metal, but there's a lot more soft psychedelia and folk infusions and less loud psych-rock and churning doom riffs.

There's a 14 minute track and a nearly 16 minute track, the rest of the album is more standard but it causes the album to come out at nearly an hour and a quarter.

It's mournful as always, and that's always good.

New Antaeus man. At first I was like "ahh man, why'd I buy this, it's just blistering, blastering stuff I'm not really in the mood for" and then "Flesh Ritual" started unhinging things a little bit and by "Angels of Despair" I was in luuuv.

seriously it is GOOD. had the exact same "do I really need new Antaeus in 2016?" reaction and then just got completely caught up in the maelstrom.

The guy at the metal record shop in Keene that I go to a couple times a year talked me into buying some German black metal I'd never heard of before. It's Dis Manibvs by Imperium Dekadenz, released this year on Season of Mist. Anyone else familiar with these folks? One track on side 3 sounds a little like Deafheaven, but most of it is a little more raw than that.

As a Vektonaut I'm displeased, but this made me laugh.

I apologize to anyone who was concerned about the post from earlier today. Vektor is not stopping. I started writing Vektor songs in 1999 and I'm still writing Vektor songs. As long as I live, Vektor will not die.
I appreciate everything that Blake, Frank, and Erik have done to help this ship take off. I also appreciate all of my band mates before them: Willy, Pablo, Adam, Mike, and Kian.
See you on the road!

Man, Khemmis is so widely loved and I just don't get it.

Finally got my physical copy of the Haar/Ur Draugr split and have been listening to it... Haar's stuff is one of the better takes on the modern black metal sound (which is deadly dull if mishandled), vicious enough for my tastes. The Ur Draugr side is an epic 20 minute track that is all over the place, maybe a little too chaotic in terms of structure but with a lot of great ideas and stuff they havent explored before (including solid, Timeghoul-esque use of clean vocals). Feel like both of these bands are going to do great stuff with their next releases.

Zealotry album from last year really deserved more att'n/love. Crowded marketplace & novelty's always gonna rule over known quantities but it's a thoughtful, focused, beautifully played death metal album with some Roger Patterson-endebted workouts in the breaks here and there and some really cool little decorative touches -- choral vocals on one track, an acoustic interlude on another (they did that on their previous too iirc and it's something I always like in DM albums).
