J Edgar Noothgrush (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Saturday, 2 January 2021 15:14 (seven months ago) link

I like Nervosa, Tribulation, and Eyehategod, so I'll be checking those out.

Coffins have a 2CD compilation of EPs and splits coming out 1/22.
A new NYC band called Gravesend have their debut, Methods of Human Disposal, coming out 2/19. Noisy, sludgy grind; RIYL Kill The Client but also Unsane.

but also fuck you (unperson), Saturday, 2 January 2021 16:23 (seven months ago) link

Aside from the Wardruna and Asphyx, I'm especially looking forward to: Dordeduh, Sur Austru and Cult of Luna.

jesus god that Revenge from last year. I know their albums always sound like you're sitting inside a dishwasher listening to a band play outside but this shit sounds like being in a bunker listening to bombs hit above ground.

Is the new ERR another Thou collab? They’re about to release a new EP, so hopefully Revolver is referring to a solo LP.

Pumped for At the Gates.

Stoked to hear - Amenra, At the Gates, Baroness, Carcass, Cult of Luna, Daughters, Deafheaven, Ghost, Gojira, Priest, King Woman, ERR

Cautiously optimistic about - Cannibal Corpse, Exodus, King Diamond, Mastodon, Melvins

Would love to be surprised by - Metallica, Ozzy, Zombie

I'm in for Baroness, Cannibal Corpse, Converge, Eyehategod, Ghost, Gojira, High on Fire, Judas Priest, Mastodon, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie

If the Melvins/Big Business quartet ever reforms, I'll be thrilled, but nothing they've done post that incarnation has held my interest.

I can't imagine who wants to hear a solo album from Kerry King.

I sure hope the Megadeth album is a concept album about tyrannical government overreach!

Yeah, that's why they are on my "cautiously optimistic" list. They haven't inspired me much lately, but I've liked to much of their overall catalog that I don't know if I'd ever be able to completely write them off.

Totally spaced on seeing Converge, totally on my stoked list.

I know it's 2020, but my copy of Ravening Iron finally showed up. Holy hell, yeah, this is as good as the buzz indicates. In addition to everything else, they've got a killer rhythm section.

Also, I did not learn until today that artist Ken Kelly is Frank Franzetta's nephew. Makes sense, but I had no idea.

my only frustration with the Eternal Champion is that I wish the vocalist were more charismatic. he's effective but at times gets stuck in a monotony.

the songwriting is ace though. this is the kind of power/heavy I wish was in greater prevalence, cos it has teeth.

Looking for Cape Penis house (Neanderthal), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 17:47 (six months ago) link

Oh yeah, I'd be way more into power metal if it sounded like this more often.

my only frustration with the Eternal Champion is that I wish the vocalist were more charismatic. he's effective but at times gets stuck in a monotony.

This is exactly why this album didn't click with me. Riffs galore, but the singer - meh. That's why the Spirit Adrift album was my power metal pick for the year. (I wish Visigoth would put out more music soon.)

but also fuck you (unperson), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 17:57 (six months ago) link

Yeah I still think the Spirit Adrift record is slightly better, but I was really impressed with the bassist for Eternal Champion. It's not often with this kind of metal that I find myself gravitating towards the bass player.

New Ghost album would be sweeeeeeeeeeet. I'm like 65/35 "he's had some time off to work on it and thus it will be amazing" vs. "they're about due for diminishing returns"

sad thing is unlike the other two bands, I think IE's lunacy is mostly concentrated in Schaffer (though ex-singer Barlow was a cop soooo...). but that's cos his bandmates seem to change every album.

I bet they break up as a result (or he replaces the current lineup after they quit)

I listened to some of it this morning. It's fine. If you need one more record that sounds like that, get it. They're from Texas, though, so don't be surprised to find yourself deleting it in a month when they turn out to be Trumpoid revanchists or something.

but also fuck you (unperson), Thursday, 7 January 2021 16:42 (six months ago) link

re: Frozen Soul, am a big fan of their Maggot Stomp demo, but haven't had a chance to listen to the full length yet, but I'd say it's pretty unlikely they are right-wing Trumpists since they donated a few hundred bucks to BLM over the summer (more than Exhumed and other bigger bands did if I recall correctly) and have also mocked anti-maskers on their socials.

new Andrew WK songs sounds like he would love to do a power metal song but hasn't got the vocal range.

His twattish fanboys are trying to compare him to Dio.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk8wi4XcQgk

Pfunkboy AKA (Oor Neechy), Wednesday, 14 July 2021 18:05 (two weeks ago) link

The song definitely has a Dio-ish feel. I've hated AWK for 20 years but all three videos from this album have been freakish and fascinating, and honestly I'm kinda curious about the whole thing in a way I have never been about any of his previous work. He's going for a very explicit cosmic-horror/cult-initiation vibe here that reminds me of movies like Beyond the Black Rainbow and Devil's Candy, and I'm into it.

Necromantical Invocation is a project for Echetleos, who has played in a bunch of groups in Greece, most notably Caedes Cruenta. A demo that was only on cassette Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie was released by Belgian label Zombi Danz Records in February and was just given a CD/LP release by Helter Skelter Productions/Regain Records, which promises to grant it a bigger audience.

http://regainrecords.bandcamp.com/album/dogme-et-rituel-de-la-haute-magie

It's pretty unique, with spooky Gothic cornerstones supporting noir-ish avant garde black metal. It's essentially two long, grandiose songs with a shorter intro and outro cut bookending the EP. "Necromantical Ritual" is plodding with pleqasantly cheese synths while the title track is laden with baroque piano and supple bass. Pretty interesting!

I didn't get much out of their first album despite it being totally my jam (the fact that it came out the same year as Hiss Spun didn't help) but this is great so far, much more convincing in terms of songwriting, which I thought was the debut's weak link.

I was going to make a “is king woman metal” post but apparently that’s unnecessary. last one was great this one seems to be too but i need to give it time

It's obviously unnecessary one minute in. I like how the rhythm section keeps it heavy all the way through. idk if I prefer this over the first album as it's been in constant rotation for the past few years for me.

love these guys: https://fulcicult.bandcamp.com/album/exhumed-information

Fulci-inspired death metal. The album is a concept based on the film "Voices from Beyond” (1991).. their death metal isn't really outside the beaten path or anything, but it it's good for fist-pumping, and occasional synths or melodic leads show up to accentuate the riffs and make things more 'cinematic' (they give it an 80s sleaze-horror feel)

it has a few all-synth interludes that seriously fucking rule
