Nice. Didn't know Willowtip had picked them up after Relapse seemed to fart on promoting their album.

Kosmokrator - First Step Towards Supremacy (excellent, psychedelic death RIYL Krypts, Tongues, Swallowed, etc)

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 (nine 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.

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:

I love Kadavar but was disappointed by the end of the album (Serge Gainsbourg style spoken word French, really?) and an unnecessary cover of "Helter Skelter." But it does start out good n heavy.

Dreadnought from Denver are an interesting mix of avant prog, psych and black metal, out Fri.

Spirit Adrift is one of my recent epic doom faves from Arizona, on 20 Buck Spin label with Magic Circle and Khemmis, also out Fri. Excited for this.

Decapitated's guitarist and drummer have been officially charged with rape and kidnapping. The singer and bassist will have their first court appearance on Thursday. The band has released a statement:

An update – following extradition from California to Washington, the band has now been charged. We’d like to emphasise; the Spokane Police Department has pressed charges as procedural formality, without doing so, they would be forced to release band – this is not a conviction or any indication of guilt or innocence. Once again, we ask that everyone wait for each party’s case to be presented and await the court’s decision. With that said, whilst cases are being prepared on both sides, some facts are indisputable at this point – that the original officer who took the complaint from the accuser stated, "I do not have probable cause that a rape occurred”, and it’s taken a full 30 days to file charges, which is right up against the point at which the defendants would legally have had to be released.

The band firmly refutes the allegations and are confident that once the facts and evidence have been seen and heard, they will be released and able to return home.

Individuals who were present on the night in question with information about the case are asked to reach out to the defense lawyer, Steve Graham of Spokane, Washington.

yknow I love Bell Witch but the prospect of an 83-minute single track is a bit mindnumbing. surely that's one of the longest rock recordings in history given that it can't fit on any physical format?

I threw it on the other day and enjoyed it, although I was admittedly happy to have my mind numbed at the time.

(And by "threw it on", I mean "pressed play on Soundcloud" since it can't actually fit on any physical format.)

New Yellow Eyes album is very much business as usual for them, but the last track Jubilat is fucking amazing
