Cutting my Scurrilous review to a reasonable length for the paper was the hardest thing I've had to do today. Still 20 words over the cap but fuck it, I'm editing this goddamn paper.

That sucks, as a fellow writer I really don't think I could do that. I've never written for a paper before so i've had the freedom of going on for as long as I want and on some reviews I write tend to be pretty long. I don't know how I could adjust to cutting my reviews down in length.

Disappointed in Suidakra's new album Book of Dowth which came out today. Not bad, but I had high hopes as I'm a big fan of their previous few albums and there are 3-4 tracks I won't listen to again because they're just filler for me.

Really digging the new Cavalera Conspiracy. Even the cover of Electric Funeral is a cool take on the song. Wish there were a few more fast songs but better than I expected.

Born of Osiris - The Discovery: I watched their new music video for "Recreate" on YouTube and thought it sounded decent, so I decided to give the album a listen. Unfortunately, it left me incredibly bored. It turns out "Recreate" is the only song that really holds my interest on the album, along with some other parts here and there. I actually think this is a step down from the band's previous album, A Higher Place. That album had some decent hooks, but they never really led anywhere. The Discovery has only a limited number of memorable hooks, and the rest of the album simply meanders like a river through the vast plains.

Kampfar - Mare: When I read about Kampfar releasing a new album, I was saddened to hear that their main songwriter, Thomas, had left the band. I was still eager to listen to the album, but I felt skeptical about it. I can safely say, it's not a bad album, but it lacks the feel of the previous ones. Mare has a lot of keyboard parts, mainly used to build atmosphere in the background or as intros. The songwriting is a bit different, with less folk-ish riffs, causing the album to sound more like straightforward black metal. However, this is not the raw type of black metal we are used to hearing from Norway. The album was produced and mixed by Peter Tägtgren and is the band's cleanest sounding release to date. As I have stated, this album is not bad at all, it just feels different. I think it will grow on me in the coming months.

My current list looks like this:

1. Stratovarius - Elysium
2. Caulrdon - Burning Fortune
3. Deicide - To Hell With God
4. Destruction - Day of Reckoning
5. Children of Bodom - Relentless Reckless Forever
6. Belphegor - Blood Magick Necromance
7. Neuraxis - Asylon

There are still quite a few albums I'm waiting on, but I'm really anticipating the new HammerFall and Borealis. Anvil and Alice Cooper should release some decent albums too. I'm also considering picking up the new Obscura and Havok albums. I've heard really good things about Havok's newest, although I wasn't a huge fan of their debut. It was decent, but it didn't blow me away.

Folk metal fans should definitely check out the new Crimfall album. I don't know when it'll be released in North America, but the full album is up for streaming here: http://www.recordshopx.com/artist/crimfall/the_writ_of_swords/

Also, I'm really pleasantly surprised by the new Within Temptation album. Yes, it's poppy with lots of '80s rock influences, but Sharon sounds great and the songs are catchy as hell. I vastly prefer it to their previous output.

I'm definitely looking forward to the new Borealis album as well.

Blood Ceremony - Living With the Ancients: Picked this up the other day. Great album. Sounds like a doom metal cross between Sabbath and Jethro Tull, with folk and progressive elements, and female vocals. I feel like alot of people here would like it.

Primordial - Redemption at the Puritan's Hand at the end of April, and Pagan's Mind - Heavenly Ecstasy at the end of May. Probably two of my most-anticipated albums in a good while.

Haven't listened to much 2011 stuff yet, to be perfectly honest, and I don't know what's been keeping me. But I liked the new Evergrey and Moonsorrow quite a bit.

I feel the complete opposite about The Discovery. I think it's much better than both of their other albums. Every song is catchy and memorable to me. I've listened to it pretty much non-stop ever since I got it.

They were (well, basically, still are) one of my favorite post-rock bands ever, but this new album just doesn't sound like TWDY to me. That may end up being OK with me in the end, but I'm having a hard time accepting that there may never be another "Young Mountain" or "This Will Destroy You", and that gives me a major sad. :(

I couldn't disagree more. I think this new step puts them into post-rock's upper echelon. They found their balance of Young Mountan-ish instrumentation and ambient sound. I expect sleepmakeswaves to outdo it, but god that was good.

Yeah. After repeated listens its nothing compared to their other stuff.

I think it's probably their worst album but is still excellent. It lacks all of the emotional climaxes of All of a Sudden and Cold Dead Place, but I still really liked it.

I've really, really gotten out of post-rock since I was obsessed with it circa 2007. I haven't even listened to the new Mogwai or EITS yet, and that shit was my Maiden and Priest for a minute there. :( I think not going to post-rock shows all the time like I used to be able to has been a big part of it, it's a genre that comes off much better live. And yeah, after a while, most of that instrumental slow-building crescendo-laden stuff sounds the same. I really want to like the new EITS because All of a Sudden was a landmark fucking album for me when it dropped, but I'm not sure. :snivel:

03-30-2011, 03:50 PM
The Demonaz solo record is really good, blew my expectations for it completly away. Which were kind of low, because I thought it would sound like All Shall Fall and I. Its like a mix of bathory style viking metal and classic heavy metal filtered through the Immortal sound. What I think really makes it amazing is the lead playing. It adds dimension of melody that along with the vocals really help make the songs stick. All of the songs are great, but the standouts have to be All Blackend Sky, Over The Mountains, and Legends of Fire and Ice. Its probably going to make my top five come the years end, atleast top ten if not. Highly recconmended if you like Immortal and 80S style heavy metal.

ShatteredFlame
03-30-2011, 03:57 PM
I can't get into EITS :snivel:. I'm seeing them next week though and am expecting a great show but as far as records are concerned, they don't seem that different from many other post-rock groups. I feel like All Is Violent will get better with time, but I think I'm forcing the process. I'm expecting something to jump out at me but it never quite reaches the level I want it to.

I'm seeing Mogwai in a couple of weeks too and am slowly enjoying Young Team more and more on each listen. I still need to check out the rest of their stuff.

new Gridlink album could be better. Granted I've only given it one listen so far but I thought I'd be more impressed. Anyways, if you haven't heard of this band, you need to get their album Amber Grey NAO. It's so good that they were recently voted the best grindcore band on the planet by the blog Grind and Punishment (their readers voted). And that was before Orphan was released, so they won with 12 minutes of material. It doesn't surprise me one bit. They play a really fast, technical style of grindcore, but the vocals are what really set them apart from the pack. Jon Chang's vocal style is sorta like an extremely high-pitched hardcore shout :rocker:

The BTBAM is juuuuuuuuust cracking my top ten at the moment. Thought it was a pretty big step down from the long pieces on Colors and Misdirect.


EDIT: I'm gonna try to arrange my listening this year into a rough ranking, but more into tiers:

1. Protest the Hero - Scurrilous
--
2. Altar of Plagues - Mammal
3. Evergrey - Glorious Collision
--
4. Grayceon - All We Destroy
5. Woods of Desolation - Torn Beyond Reason
--
6. Anaal Nathrakh - Passion
7. The Decemberists - The King Is Dead
8. Lionize - Destruction Manual
--
9. Darkest Hour - The Human Romance
10. The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - Belong
11. Between the Buried and Me - The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues
12. Thomas Giles - Pulse
--
13. Subrosa - No Help for the Mighty Ones
14. Heretoir - Heretoir
15. Ravencult - Morbid Blood
16. Falkenbach - Tiurida
--
17. Bright Eyes - The People's Key
18. Earth - Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1
19. To Cast a Shadow - In Memory Of
20. Deschain - Upon the Oaken Throne
--
(shit I basically didn't like)
21. Northless - Clandestine Abuse
22. Amon Amarth - Surtur Rising (has like three good songs, I keep trying to like it, but Jesus you guys, get over it, Amon Amarth finally failed)
23. Moonreich - Loi Martiale
24. Svartsyn - Wrath Upon the Earth
25. Srodek - Forfall
26. Brocken Moon - Hoffnungslos (had some promising Burzum-y moments but the vocals are the worst I've ever heard in BM, seriously)
27. Arafel - For Battles Once Fought (one of the worst records I've heard, period)

Maiden33
04-04-2011, 10:08 PM
Best shot at a top 10 as of this point: (out of about 25 albums heard)

01 Pagan's Mind - Heavenly Ecstasy
02 Evergrey - Glorious Collision
03 Stratovarius - Elysium
04 Eden's Curse - Trinity
05 Voodoo Circle - Broken Heart Syndrome
06 Demon's Eye - The Stranger Within
07 Mr. Big - What If?
08 Hibria - Blind Ride
09 Presto Ballet - Invisible Place

I honestly can't pick a #10 I'm confident in. Probably between Jag Panzer and Serenity.

It's definitely not as good as the long pieces on Colors and The Great Misdirect, but I really, really like it. At first listen, I was like, "This is good, but not better than Scurrilous", but after the second listen I was like, "FUCK YEAH! This is better than Scurrilous, but just by a nanometer". I guess I just love BTBAM that much. But seriously, Scurrilous is almost better. Almost.

6. Anaal Nathrakh - Passion
11. Between the Buried and Me - The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues
22. Amon Amarth - Surtur Rising (has like three good songs, I keep trying to like it, but Jesus you guys, get over it, Amon Amarth finally failed)
27. Arafel - For Battles Once Fought (one of the worst records I've heard, period)

First of all, I want to hear Passion so bad it makes anything else seem less entertaining. I've heard some say it's a disappointment, but I don't care. I want to hear it. Really badly.

The Parallax is a 30 min long EP, so in order for it to be better than Scurrilous, which is 15 minutes longer, those have to be some of the best 30 minutes in BTBAM's discography. They aren't.

Surtur Rising is the worst Amon Amarth album so far, and I agree. Maybe two songs I'd like to hear again and one or two I'm indifferent with. Amon Amarth are consistent, but not that consistent. They've never made a top caliber album before.

Arafel sucked, and they got a lot of early year hype as being "good." I get pains in my testicles when I listen to them.

In an attempt to make this post more relavent to 2011 albums, I've also embarked on a challenge. This year I have listened to every album featured on postrockxchange.com in an attempt to listen to more of it, and there have been A LOT of really good releases this year. I plan on listening to every one this year, which will total to way over 100 albums. They include...

We Made God - It's Getting Colder
This Will Destroy You - Tunnel Blanket
Solkyri - No House
The Seven Mile Journey - Notes for the Synthesis
Long Distance Calling - S/T
Industries of the Blind - Chapter 1: Had We Known Better
Explosions in the Sky - Take Care, Take Care, Take Care
Álfheimr - What Allows Us To Endure

Oh come on. Just because they aren't writing the same song over and over again on every album makes then gone downhill. They're not Slayer. I like hearing diversity, it's good to finally hear it in Amon Amarth.

I would only take issue with this point, because With Oden on Our Side is nothing shy of the best melodic death metal album ever not called Heartwork or Slaughter of the Soul.

Im listening to Obscura's new album right now, it's fucking incredible.:rocker:Correct.

Heard some of that, I like it.What the fuck I don't even...HUH?!? :confused: :confused: :confused:

Stop liking good music. You're confusing us.

I said fucking incredible when I was up to about the 3rd song but though I still like it I think they could have cut it down a bit and made it shorter.No. You were correct before. Why would you want to take something that awesome and cut it down?!? It's not even an hour-long album as it is. For me, it sounds just right. Best tech death album I've heard in quite some time (and that includes Decrepit Birth and Atheist).

Amon Amarth...never made a top caliber album before.THE FUCK YOU SAY.

3. Impiety - Worshippers Of The Seventh Tyranny


meh, I didn't really like their new one. The 30-min song concept doesn't work to their favor- way too many slow parts. If it was just a regular album they could've gotten away with one or two slow songs, but not for a single song album.

I think it worked out pretty good for them. My philosophy is that songs over 12 - 15 minutes are usually godlike because they have to be if they're that long!

I could name a solid 20 or 25 that I would call better than it.

Definitely their best by quite a bit, but I still wouldn't say that they've ever been in the upper echelon of melodic death metal bands. They've always been very consistent and content with making 7/10 albums. For that reason, I couldn't ever be more than a casual fan of their material. I love them live though, absolutely.

I refuse to rank until absolutely necessary, but I'll still put this year's albums I like into three rough categories, the top being the best, the bottom being the least best/worst.

I don't spy Deafheaven's newest on there :nonono:

22) Primate - Draw Back a Stump
23) Evergrey - Glorious Collision
24) Darkest Hour - The Human Romance
25) Foo Fighters - Wasting Light


A couple of other observations:

- Showroom of Compassion > The King of Limbs
- Post Rock is still more Hipster than Djent
- I'm digging the new Beastie Boys track - insert Hipster comment <here>
- Had I heard Within the Ruins in 2010 they would have been Top 15
- Some bands I never liked like actually put out decent cd's in 2011
- The world needs more bands like Primate
- Props to PharmD dude for the heads up on Becoming the Archetype
- Video of the year? http://youtu.be/rgDoFKaqnY0
- If Burzum had even halfway decent production I'd probably love it
- Some commercial bands are putting out solid cd's while solid heavy bands are putting out commercial shit cd's.

Really looking forward to:

Meshuggah, Primus, Morbid Angel, Vektor, Tool, Unearth, Polkadot Cadaver & Gojira among others

And I'm still baffled by all the lists with BTBAM ahead of PTH. It's good, it's probably grown on me enough to break my current top 10, but Jesus, Scurrilous feels like an album they'll talk about in 20 years to me.

Actually I just heard Darkest Hour yesterday and expect it to go higher. I've heard over 70 cd's in 2011 so these are the Top of the Top.

PTH's vocals still get to me. I'm sure I'll get over it at some point but at times they really bother me. I still listen to the instrumental cd of theirs more than that actual cd with vocals from a few years ago.

EDIT: Also have you ever read the lyrics to Hair-Trigger? Musically I love that song, vocally I couldn't possibly hate it more. The lyrics are total Twilight Glee bullshit. PTH are thiiiis close to being an incredible band but personally can't see it ever happening with that dude singing and writing those cheese ball lyrics.

I FUCKING LOVE RODY WALKER AS A LYRICIST. Have you read the lyrics to Tandem? Probably my favorite lyrics in a decade. So agree to disagree there. :lol:

Rody Walker is a hell of a lyricist. The lyrics to Tandem,Tapestry and Termites are especially fantastic. Scurrilous is still my favorite record of the year(I love BTBAM's new one just as much, I just don't tend to count EP's towards my overall rankings.)

Jhdeity 70 albums holy shit. I can't even believe you've heard that much. I'm only up to 18 albums on the year so far, there is still quite a bit I need to listen to and an insane amount of albums I am excited for on the rest of the year.

Yeah I have a bunch of friends in radio, internet mags and bands. Plus I try to check out as much stuff on here that people recommend. My main friend who hooks me up with promo copies recently gave me Pagan's Mind and Saliva and asked me to help write a review for Saliva for him. While I'm no hater and like some of Saliva's older stuff, they've gone way too girlie for me. I haven't listened to either yet but will have to delve into Saliva just to help a Bro out. Much more interested in pagan's mind even though i'm not a huge fan either.

Now before I go on remember I put this cd in my Top 10 even with these HUGE flaws because the music is so incredible. This is just why I can't ever see they being anywhere near as good as BTBAM.

So I already told you about my extreme hatred for Hair-Trigger. Musically it's a 9 or 10 and lyrically and vocally it's a -10. From the 1st stupid line I hate it. People rag on BFMV for cheesy shit and H-T's lyrics and vocals make them sound like Slayer. Possibly my least favorite song of 2011. That "high school" line is so bad lyrically and vocally on so many levels and I literally can't listen to that song anymore.

Ok so Tamden starts off and I'm like EXACTLY! This is how this dude should sing all the time. I have no idea what he's singing about but I'm REALLY digging it. A band called Protest The Hero doesn't have to sing about Satan every song but at least give me something with some testosterone that I can relate to and sing along to. And then the 2 minute mark happens...

I had heard the Rose, Disclose, Expose Compose part earlier and was ok with it but when he bellows about the father or brother then rhymes so she knows I still love her with it I seriously have to keep myself from projectile vomiting.

WTF is that 9th grade Twilight bullshit? I'm like ok maybe it's about her dad beating her and her brother killed him or the singer is going to kill him... then he just ruins everything with the whiny ass disaffect her, so she knows how much I respect her line. Then another rose, disclose, pose, expose bullshit and I just have to sit and wonder how incredible this band would be with a dude singing instead of Robert Smith.

Like I said not hating on people who like it. Lots of people don't care about vocals and lyrics but I can never be one of those people. I couldn't fathom driving in my car jamming that song and singing those words or even caring what the hell he's trying to say or what the story is. If I want to hear that shit I'll turn the Lifetime channel on or watch Twilight. It's literally the same exact thing to me unless I'm really missing something

Best lyrics in a decade? If you're in a really happy place with a girl and want to sing that song to her, I might understand I guess. Other than that I just don't get that guy or ever care to know his name. I literally have very little respect for him as a lyricist and think he's holding back an amazing group of musicians from achieving their dreams and making incredible music. His vocals have their moments but as a whole he annoys the shit out of me.

To each his own and the cd is still great even with that dude. Even Moonlight which isn't about a girl (thank god) is just weird. Take a piss, take a picture. obviously he's intelligent I just can't stand him. Maybe it'll grow on me or I'll just tune him out. Or better yet, they release Scurrilous as an instrumental cd like they did the other one. I would WORSHIP that! hahaha

Tandem is Rody's ode to someone he knows with terminal cancer who puts on a smile anyway, dude. :hecho:

It's between that touching fact alone and the fact that he touches on the themes of the mystery of how fate saddles good people with shitty things like cancer ("If there's one thing that remains so crystal clear to us it's that the wandering hands of the gods are so goddamn myserious") and closes with a really positive "you don't need religion to take comfort and solace when shitty things happen, you just need the support of the people in your life" verse: ("Saints walk the earth, they don't patrol the skies/They're the people right behind you riding tandem through the night/It's the comfort that's discovered between two sets of eyes/It's the hand that stills the other that shakes like candlelight") He's tackling big themes and handling them wonderfully. The music alone makes the album about an 8 for me but the vocals and lyrics propel it to breaking the meter on the scale of 10. Could not fucking disagree more, man. Glad you dig the music, but you're missing out on a lot of why this band is great.

I'm glad you educated me on that. It doesn't change the fact that it's a Lifetime theme song but at least it makes sense now. I definitely listen to music to evoke emotion but not sure I want to go down that road while jamming out in my car or at a concert with friends. Maybe that's my problem. That incredible music doesn't fit that theme or those vocals in most spots. I'm guessing you're not going to defend Hair-Trigger because if that's about a similar topic I'd have to pick my jaw up off the floor.

I enjoy these debates and glad I could at least see why he's doing what he's doing. My own history with bands probably affects my feelings about him also. My friends band who are/were similar to PTH would write incredible music and their singer would ruin the songs time and time again. He would just babble about topics that didn't fit the music and would literally leave the crowds baffled at live shows. I definitely see the similarity...

Anyway, the new Burzum is definitely growing on me. Certainly better than Belus, possibly better than most of the early stuff. Weird how a guy can go away to prison for 22 years, hear no black metal, and come out and make some of the most relevant, fresh-sounding BM of the year. Varg is a true (musical) genius.

I believe the third track is Valen. Really all of the black metal pieces are brilliant, and the experimental track (tracks plural, if you count the intro) are way better than they ever have been in his career. No 25 minute electronic odysseys, just some cool folk guitar and simple drums with BM production. :lol:

What's funny is so many people must think the same thing because I've defnitely heard the instrumental version of Fortress way more than the original. Think about it, Mastodon did it a few years later but PTH was the 1st band I've ever heard of putting out an instrumental version of their cd a few months after it's release. Why would they do that unless they knew people would want to hear it or rather hear their incredible music without the annoying vocals? Just sayin...

Ironically the guy who turned me onto them was intelligent enough to burn me the instrumental copy of Fortress 1st knowing I'd probably hate the original as much as he did initially. He's into them hardcore now but that dude is definitely an acquired taste if nothing else. I'm hoping I'll be able to tolerate him at some point but I've been a PTH fan for over 3 years now while totally hating the vocals. Certain songs are better than others obviously but I'm 100% sure you'll never catch me jamming out to hair-trigger. hahaha

I'd have to agree with Valen. What a cool riff but it's just so hollow to me. My problem with Belus was the drums sounding like cardboard and as much as I dig that track how incredible would it sound with real drums and any kind of bass?

Fortress is a catch-22 for me. I can't listen to the regular version because of the vocals, but I can't listen to the instrumental because it sounds empty without vocals. It wasn't arranged as an instrumental album; it was arranged specifically with vocals in mind, so when I listen to it without the vocals, it sounds awkward, because I can tell that there were supposed to be vocals there. Does that make sense?

Totally. After digesting the instrumental version of Fortress a few times I was dying to hear it with vocals. Talk about a let down... Some songs were just totally ruined but others I could tolerate. Kinda like the new one. Tapestry is kinda cool vocally (except that one part) but musically it's not as good as some others. I still like the new cd but am getting into their older stuff now because I heard the vocals are somewhat better and he didn't write the lyrics.

I'm sure people will disagree but I think that dude is the worst vocalist in the best band that I listen to. It's not that he can't sing, it's that he wants to sound like a dickhead and comes off like a hipster/artsy/pompus ass. My buddy said he saw them live and all the guy did was preach and ramble on stage. I can't verify that but I picture him being like that actually. I might have to scour that "dickhead to meet" thread and see if anyone can confirm this.

When he sings like Mike Patton or Glassjaw, I really dig him. Too bad he doesn't do that enough...

I checked out Scurrilous and loved the first track, but I thought it got really samey and it didn't do much for me. I really dig their vocalist, though - he was actually my favorite part of their sound.

Magnisphyricon by Sons of Seasons is awesome - keyboard-laden dark prog featuring Oliver Palotai of Kamelot and Henning Basse of Metalium, somewhat reminiscent of Symphony X. Simone Simons sings in a few sections, too. Much better than their first release. I'm expecting this to be personal top 10 material.

Listened to a decent amount of new records in the past week or so. Here are my brief thoughts on each of them

Between The Buried and Me-The Parralax: Hyersleep Dialogues- I know this is going to come as a huge shock,I loved it. Typical awesome BTBAM. Not as crazy or weird as the past two records, but I didn't really expect that. Awesome EP that got me even more amped for the next full-length

Foo Fighters-Wasting Light- This was actually very good. Once I heard "Rope" I knew it would be better than their last record and it is by leaps and bounds. I am really digging the hard rock edge thrown in on this record. One of my Foo Fighters records and it is currently sitting in my top 5 for the year.

TesseracT-One- This was decent, but I didn't really get the hype behind this. Not bad by any means, it just wasn't anywhere near mind-blowing(a lot of reviews I read talked about they were the best prog metal band to hit the scene in years).

Obscura-Omnivium- Obscura was a band I really not heard much of their much of their stuff in the past. I finally stopped procrastinating and downloaded Omnivium and it some damn fine tech-death. Their use of fretless basses are excellent and there is a plethora of blistering guitar solos. I need to go back and download their earlier material.

So I'm jamming PTH's cd Kezia and I'm loving it. The vocals are so much better than anything I've heard from them. Kinda SOAD-ish and it hit me. These guys probably started off being very heavily influenced by SOAD and the vocalist just took it way too far.

Then I discovered their 1st EP which includes this:

http://youtu.be/yLFIxgd3LWI

Mystery solved.

Back to my initial post, Darkest Hour & Foo Fighters were the last 2 cd's to make my list and both are climing up it rapidly. Very impressive!

I have 1 song of theirs on a compilation called Death From Above. The song is called To The Rack With Them and I really dig it. The compilation is called Classic Rock and is from a dude from Napalm Death's label Rise Above Records. I think it came out with Classic Rock Magazine but I got it on ebay for $1.

The best thing about this compilation is there is a song from The "Original" Iron Maiden. I had no clue there was a 70's band called Iron Maiden before Steve Harris and Co. stole it. hahaha

It's kinda groovy actually. I recommend this sampler is anyone can find it. It's a 2011 release and has 70's stuff and 2011 stuff intermingled.

Burzum's new one is still growing on me but here's what I submitted to the paper for my review today:

“Fallen” but not broken

Looking past the questionable use of Times New Roman in place of a band logo on its otherwise tasteful cover, the latest offering from black metal iconoclast Varg Vikernes is everything we’ve come to expect from a Burzum album.
“Fallen” is the second album Vikernes has released since his own release from Norwegian federal prison in 2009. He served 16 years of a 21-year sentence for the murder of fellow black metal luminary Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth, and though he released a pair of experimental ambient albums from jail, he remained almost entirely cut off from the scene during his incarceration.
It’s somewhat surprising, then, that “Fallen” is one of the freshest black metal albums in years.
Vikernes infuses the raw, entrancing sound he honed on records like “Hvis Lyset Tar Oss” and “Filosofem” with folk elements far less subtle than on past Burzum releases. The result is a more fulfilling experience than “Belus,” his first post-prison album, that at times rivals the greatest work of his ‘90s golden days.
Thanks to Vikernes’ controversial past, Burzum always inspires debate about the separation of art and artist. An album with cuts as choice as “Jeg Faller” (“I Am Falling”) and “Valen” (“Fallen”) makes the separation all the easier.

GRADE: B+

Also, posted about six weeks ago in this thread:
@moobys:

Mogwai and Grayceon are neck and neck for me right now. I do think there's some stuff coming that has the potential, at least, to unseat both of them, though.

With new releases coming by Baroness (allegedly), Russian Circles, Coalesce, Meshuggah, PRIMUS, Morbid Angel, Pestilence, Asphyx, Wino, Weedeater, Trap Them, Rotten Sound, Amon Amarth, Obscura, Autopsy, Indian, Red Fang, Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You, Vektor, Arch Enemy, Gorguts, Made Out of Babies, Anaal Nathrakh, TOOL, Absu, Unearth, Revocation, Gojira, Gorod, Cynic, Vader, Dreaming Dead, Cormorant, Shrinebuilder, Neurosis (allegedly), Origin, Decapitated, Napalm Death, Exhumed, Goatwhore, Brutal Truth, Voivod (apparently?), Fleshgod Apocalypse, Pig Destroyer (allegedly), Fredrik Thordendal’s Special Defects (allegedly), Cult of Luna (allegedly), The Mars Volta (allegedly), Grails (someday), and yes, even Necrophagist (someday, allegedly, maybe...) - 2011 is shaping up to be a promising year indeed. :metal:

It's the best black metal doc because it's actually, you know, a film, not just a camera set up in a room while black metal musicians tell boring stories we've all read with shitty lighting and no pans or zooms. Filmmakers made it, so its inherently watchable. Great little flick.

Yeah the one I got has a bunch of extras and shit. I'm fascinated by the whole story. No interest in seeing him playing with hobbit dolls..

Hearing him singing death metal PRREECIIOOOOOOOUSSSSS would be funny though

Just listened to the new Septicflesh album and it's great. It's pretty much a continuation of Communion, but more consistent. However, I like Communion more, because even though it has a few songs I don't care for at all, it has some truly incredible ones that make up for it, which I feel The Great Mass is lacking.

Favorites: "The Vampire From Nazareth", "Five-Pointed Star", and "Therianthropy"

Foo Fighters: Only album I've liked straight through since The Colour And The Shape.

Red Fang: It's great to see a band keep the spirit of Kyuss alive.

Scar Symmetry: A lot better then I was expecting.

Septic Flesh: Damn good album.

I totally agree with you about the new Darkest Hour album. I can't get enough of it. I haven't listened to The Unseen Empire yet, but I will definitely give it a listen. It has to be better than their previous stuff. I just wish Christian was still singing. His clean vocals are sick.

Finally watched Until the Light Takes Us. Pretty compelling. The best part was definitely Varg and the stories of the record shop. The only complaint would be it spent way too much time with Fenriz. That guy just isn't very interesting and I see why there are so many bad reviews of the flick because it should have had a few more people to add diversity and not spent so much time with him.

As interesting as Varg is, it's hard to believe him at times. He definitely comes off kinda shady when recollecting the murder. The courtroom footage is great though and dude makes some really valid points.

Overall I liked the history lesson and would still recommend people see it. I'd still rate Metal: A Headbangers Journey over it because it's way more interesting and covers so many more bands but I'm glad I watched it.

I felt the same way. I think the point of all the Fenriz parts was to show what life is like for someone who is immersed in the black metal community. They really didn't have to show all that and it would have been nice to have interviews with more musicians.

Malison Rogue - Malison Rogue (Amazing traditional metal for fans of Queensryche, Maiden, Fates Warning, etc. Great new band from Sweden)

Lost in Thought - Opus Arise (UK Progressive Metal that sounds like a cross-section of newer Dream Theater, Vanden Plas, and Myrath)


Both are definitely top 10 contenders for the year for me thus far.

Checked out both bands, very damn impressive stuff on both ends. :rocker:

Haha, No that will be June 20th when Deconstruction and Ghost come out. They will be the top 2 albums of the year, and I'll be damned if I can think of another album coming out this year that will top those. :rocker:
