the first tracks from that Wardruna are fantastic

J Edgar Noothgrush (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Saturday, 2 January 2021 15:14 (three 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 (three 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.

in other words, gets my highest score as a critic, 7.5 out of 10

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.

pomenitul, Tuesday, 5 January 2021 21:30 (three months ago) link

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

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Tuesday, 5 January 2021 21:41 (three months ago) link

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!

but also fuck you (unperson), Tuesday, 5 January 2021 21:48 (three months ago) link

Kerry King's solo album is gonna be a rap album IMO

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 wouldn't even say I'm "mildly" anticipating it, but I remember Worship Music being pretty decent.

Unless I missed something, still Joey Belladonna. He's been back since 2010 and their last two albums.

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.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Wednesday, 6 January 2021 17:33 (three months ago) link

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 (three 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 (three 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.

I think Tribulation has a new album out 1/29, right? Surprised that's not on the list of anticipated up there.

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 (three 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.

xpost - thanks for the trad metal recommends!

I’ve only heard a bit of the Genghis Tron; I wasn’t sure at first, but once I realised they sound like Trans Am now it sits better with me.

ok this sounds good, there's nothing wrong with heavy metal that sounding like trans am wouldn't fix

The new Cannibal Corpse album is a very good Cannibal Corpse album. Erik Rutan is on lead guitar throughout, and wrote three songs, though you can't tell; they sound like Cannibal Corpse songs, not Hate Eternal songs. Lots of slow and heavy stuff in the vein of "Scourge of Iron," no grindcore-ish blasts in the vein of "High Velocity Impact Splatter."

There are parts where I feel like the GT could have benefited from a softer mix. It's still mixed like a loud metal album. I keep wanting to fiddle with the volume.

Speaking of the brutalness, this one just blipped onto my radar and subsequently sent me zooming. Enough curveballs in the songs to keep things interesting, but not techy.
https://shownomercyrecords.bandcamp.com/album/incubation-in-the-parallel-dimension-snm011

Also I've been on a Blood Harvest Recs kick the last few days and found this to be at the top of the heap. I guess it's just "death metal" but the dude brings the riffs like mad and knows how to stack a song into a comprehensible shape. Almost reminds me of Abbath's style in places, like "Mountains of Might" gone total death. Drum sound's kind of whack but ehhh. Really hope a full length is in the works.

This Swedish hard rock is crunchy, catchy, and easily my favorite record of the year thus far. Think Runaways, old Riot, original Alice Cooper Band, with a metallic sheen. https://t.co/bkSWNkCBtN #NowPlaying
