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 (ten 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.

I think it's... okay. Not particularly distinctive or remarkable but it's not bad. The outro reminds me of the Falling Snow outro a little.

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:

we get voters but a fair amount never seem to post on any of the poll threads. It's odd.

Algerian Goalkeeper (Odysseus), Tuesday, 14 November 2017 21:15 (six days ago) Permalink

maybe the artist polls are skewing my thoughts but it has felt that ilx in general is older and less into new music, this thread suggests otherwise because it's mainly about new albums , so maybe people are just tired of lists and polls?

if there's anything we can do to improve the poll please say

Algerian Goalkeeper (Odysseus), Tuesday, 14 November 2017 21:20 (six days ago) Permalink

I don't have any bright ideas for more participation but you do a great job Odysseus and I don't see how it could be improved by someone else taking over.

I'm as bad as anyone but there never seems to be much discussion about music anywhere on ilm these days unless someone's done something shitty and/or criminal, or if people are talking about something from The Real Music Canon for billionth time.

I really love the polls and count me in for a ballot, but I don’t have time to post as much on the rollout threads as I’d like to.

That said, 2017 is an exceptionally weak year in metal so far for me. I’ve listened to a lot of albums with good reviews from various sources but almost nothing has stood out. All the usual channels are failing me, I’m very annoyed.

Siegbran, Tuesday, 14 November 2017 23:14 (six days ago) Permalink

How could we improve the poll and get more participation?
Wait until the year ends so we can spend a little quality time with December releases.

I have no idea who the frontrunners even are this year.

Simon H., Tuesday, 14 November 2017 23:15 (six days ago) Permalink

I’m sure Converge and Chelsea Wolfe will be contenders. Enslaved, Ruins of Beverast, Pallbearer and Wolves In The Throne Room too.

I’m rarely in touch with the ILM consensus but I like the poll all the same.

Siegbran, Tuesday, 14 November 2017 23:23 (six days ago) Permalink

I just found out that shredding post-punk/punk/indie rockers Screaming Females will be touring with Thou. Also on the bill HIRS whose Facebook page says "LGBTQIA, anti-authoritarian, bullshit thrash with PUNK ethics. NO GODS//NO COPS//NO BROS."

This is a perplexing yet awesome bill! However I worried that Thou might attract some of the more mookish metal dudes and that they may not be as respectful to the other bands as they should.

Mind you, I really don't care if some assholes who deserves it gets their asses kicked. But I really hate to think about a tour where fellow metal fans make the rest of us look like intolerant assholes by association.

This Facebook post and response was how I found out about the tour:

http://scontent.fphl2-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/23517714_10159617321130597_7700053452464390942_n.jpg?oh=2a4cd8f9118d28cd36c26b11cc763f47&oe=5AAFB631

I know, small sample size. Do I have a reason to be worried here or am I a little paranoid?

― Loud guitars shit all over "Bette Davis Eyes" (NYCNative),

we usually have to run it by xmas because of seandalai.
Would people still be up for participating if we have the rollout in february after the main poll, that seandalai has to do as well as this?

Algerian Goalkeeper (Odysseus), Tuesday, 14 November 2017 23:49 (six days ago) Permalink

otherwise if we start in january we might only have 1 week for noms and 1 week for voting so we can fit it in before the big poll. Im not sure if johnny fever will delay that poll a week to accommodate us

Algerian Goalkeeper (Odysseus), Tuesday, 14 November 2017 23:51 (six days ago) Permalink

I volunteer to help run the poll if it will help our timing issues

Simon H., Tuesday, 14 November 2017 23:57 (six days ago) Permalink

Simon H., Tuesday, 14 November 2017 23:58 (six days ago) Permalink

take over completely or do the tabulating with a fancy program that Glenn did and seandalai does since?

Loud guitars shit all over "Bette Davis Eyes" (NYCNative), Wednesday, 15 November 2017 00:03 (five days ago) Permalink

it's seandalai's own program and he often stays up and does tabulation when the poll finishes so we can start the results right away.

The new Malokarpatan is as great as the teaser tracks led me to suspect. Hard-riffing dinosaur metal (similar to what Kadavar used to purvey) with Baroque instrumental interludes and bellowing Slavic vocals (fans of the Furia album will be on familiar ground here), and with a knack for the catchy riff that calls Hail Spirit Noir to mind at times.
