Dude your going to flip it actually sounds like how it looks with the lineup on paper. The doomyness of Electric Wizard, the sludge of Unearthly Trance and a huge helping of death metal. :drool: The vocalist released an album with his Black Metal project "The Howling Wind" recently too you should check that out.

My Current Top 15
1. Evoken - Atra Mors
2. Ahab - The Giant
3. Pallbearer - Sorrow And Extinction
4. UFOmammut - ORO: Opus Primum/Alter
5. Royal Thunder - CVI

7. Baroness - Yellow & Green
8. Ash Borer - Cold of Ages
9. Samothrace - Reverence In Stone

12. Nachtmystium - Silencing Machine
13. Christian Mistress - Possesion
14. Hooded Menace - Effigies of Evil

Yeah I decided to re-listen to Evoken again and besides narrowly beating Ahab for the top spot it destroys everything else released yet. Best funeral death/doom in a really long time, probably since Asunder's debut maybe.

Matt Bellamy went on record saying something like dubstep is the best thing out there right now (and by that he meant brostep like Skrillex, not real dubstep) and that Muse might try to incorporate elements of it into their music. >_<

edit: LOL NOW I AM LISTENING TO THE SONG. GUESS THEY REALLY ARE DOING THE DUBSTEP THING

The new Bonded By Blood album is nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. They definitely did ok without Alex Lee, though I still think it sucks Jose Barrales left. This album would have been a lot better with him singing, but it's still decent.

For anyone not up to date with the current hardcore releases, I'd recommend giving the new Xibalba album, Hasta La Muerte, a chance. It has potential to get some metal cred. It's definitely hardcore, and heavy, downtuned, beatdown hardcore at that, but heavy in the sense of Morbid Angel, or Suffocation versus Hatebreed or Madball. The "breakdowns" are really just slow, doomy death metal riffs, and the vocals are more death-y, even going into super low growls at times. They incorporate Sepultura-esque tribal drums an rhythms at times.

I guess I'm trying to say that for a death metal or doom fan, this album is way more accessible and fresh than their 2010 debut. Definitely one of the most diverse hardcore releases of this year. Give it a shot! I recommend the songs "Floods", "No Serenity", and "Hasta La Muerte".

Reign Supreme felt to me like another band copying Dying Fetus; I mean this in the sense that though it was obviously Dying Fetus it seemed like either another band replicating their sound or DF getting lazy. All of the lead parts and sweeps felt like wankery this time around, and overall it felt to me like just another tech-death record. I wouldn't have been able to recognize it as a DF album had I listened to it blind-folded, something that hasn't happened with any of their other releases.

I'm not coherent when I explain my opinions on albums, which is why I never write reviews.

Yeah can't say I agree at all with your views on Reign Supreme Lincoln. I thought it was much better than the new Cannibal Corpse and Aborted as well as a lot of the other non-death metal releases you rated ranked higher on your list. I honestly thinks it gives Destroy the Opposition a run for it's money for their best record. For now Reign Supreme is a top 10 album for the year and I can see it staying that way or finishing just outside the top 10 come year's end.

Somewhat unrelated note: You placing Gaza at number 1 on your list makes me 10x eager to listen to it, I really need to do that by the end of the weekend. I've had it in my Itunes for a week now.

I personally thought that Aborted and Cannibal Corpse were better. Reign Supreme was still awesome though. From Womb to Waste is just :drool:. I just think that Descend Into Depravity was better, so that's really keeping me from rating it higher.

Ensiferum's last album is actually one of my favorites of theirs. Upon first listen, I'm somewhat disappointed by Unsung Heroes. It has some cool moments, but I almost get the feeling they are bored with their band :-p I still like it a good amount and it might grow on me. Passion Proof Power and the bonus track may be enough to make up for a couple more boring tracks.

Yeah it's really great, but after some intense observations no where near as good as Axioma or Ahab's The Giant. It's a transistion record for Enslaved, where they let their progressive and avant-garde sides run more freely. Hopefully it works out better and gets trimmed a bit on the follow up.

I guess i'll post my top 25 too. I wouldn't be too satisfied with this as a final top 25 because the bottom albums are only in 7/10 territory. While it's mostly 8/10 albums, anything past 6 can be switched around.

I get what you're saying to an extent, but at the same time, age shouldn't determine what kind of music you can play. I think it's awesome what OFF! is doing. They've brought back a style seldom seen in the current scene and managed to become pretty popular (in terms of hardcore). I don't see them as just some old guys going through the motions. They actually wrote good music and managed to stay relevant. That's something that not many musicians are able to do at that point in their career.

As much as I love OFF! I definitely agree. As far as old school punk revival bands goes OFF! seems to be getting all the attention but the Classics of Love self titled is better than both OFF! records IMO. OFF!'s lyrics are often hard to take seriously knowing Keith is over 50 years old. Jesse Michaels in Classics sings about the same kind of stuff he did in Op Ivy but it doesn't come off as immature.

Man I don't know how I ended up finding it but I heard it and fell in love with it. It's just heavy as hell with some great slam riffs but it has this crazy technical side which you wouldn't quite expect.





The Murder Construct album is crazy. It sounds how you would expect it to....Like Cattle Decapitation and Exhumed raped each other and this was born only to get thrown in a dumpster on prom night that was filled with toxic waste and it became a superbeast of a band. It's chaotic and brutal and fast as hell. Short too...I don't think it even reaches 30 minutes

I don't think many people are, at first. It's a big change for even the most dedicated Baroness fans. Repeated listens are recommended, and although you may or may not change your mind in the end, it's worth a try in my humble opinion.

This cannot be stressed enough. I went from not caring one iota about this album to now thinking it's one of the best of the year. No joke. There have been a lot of "don't count it out just yet" albums this year, at least to me, and this is one of them. The albums that take time to sink in often turn out to be the best ones.

Has anyone heard Mark Shelton's new project, Hellwell? I just finished my first listen and I'm a little disappointed. I know it'll be a grower, but it just seems like there isn't too much happening throughout the whole album. The only thing I can remember from this album is the ending of the last song, which is Shelton soloing a ton (something he seems to do at the end of a lot of his albums, which is awesome).

Yeah, I've been rocking this January, amazing album. Probably gonna end up in top ten. I'm kinda pulling for them to end up on MDF, but I doubt it. Everyone compares them to Deathspell, I don't really hear it. Just because they're black metal and technical? They're a lot more proggy (and a lot less labyrinthine) than Deathspell is, or ever was.

Si Monumentum is 100% black metal, no prog, no death. It has the typical orthodox/religious sound like Funeral Mist, Glorior Belli, Ondskapt.. As for Fas, sure it's technical, but it's closer to a black metal take on free jazz than Dodecahedron, which is basically Cynic trying their hand at covering later Emperor. It's just a lot less riff salad-y, to me.

Well, regardless, we're just splitting hairs at this point.

Good lord. Dodecahedron draws from Deathspell. It's not even debatable, I bet the band members themselves would tell you that. When you listen to the Dodecahedron album you hear Deathspell, not Cynic or Emperor. The comparisons aren't in a vacuum... it hit me like a wall when I listened to it.

Relax man. I'm not denying there's some Deathspell influence, I just think its an overstated, lazy comparison that sells them short. The main guitarist, who wrote all of the music, is also in Exivious, who are basically a heaiver, instrumental Cynic. It's not that farfetched. Anyway, I already said agree to disagree.

And to keep from derailing this thread any further.. new Krallice and Gaza are both slightly flawed gems. The new Murder Construct I haven't listened to yet, but should be good. And the new Cryptopsy should be.. interesting. Anyone heard it yet?

Anyway, the album is pretty bad. Way too much "we've hung out with Devin Townsend and Dream Theater" bullshit. If Colors was dizzying technical hardcore punctuated with moments of sheer emotional power and the occasional foray into "circus music," the new one is basically just circus music as played by Between the Buried and Me. Massively disappointing, but they'll never be the band they were on Alaska and Colors again.

Other stuff I'm enjoying:
Self-Corruption - History of Clowns without a doubt one of the better grind records I've heard in a long time.
Vilipend - Inamorata If you like Gaza, Enabler, or Protestant, check these dudes out. Fuckin' amazing album...
Ghostlimb - Confluence Justin Smith is the fucking man. Along with playing top-notch noisy hardcore in Ghostlimb, he does cinema-grind in Graf Orlock and hardcore/powerviolence in Dangers.

EDIT: Speaking of Protestant, their new album Reclamation is killer as well. Tragedy meets Modern Life is War with black metal influence :rocker:

That's the only post-rock album in my top 20. Which is really bad.

It's every other Mono album redux, except a little lighter in tone, and only better than Hymn to the Immortal Wind.

I enjoyed Caves Of Steel's Troposphere/Magnetosphere (http://music.cavesofsteel.no/) EP.

That was okay, but nothing groundbreaking. The first track was pretty good.

I'm not an expert on post-rock, but check out Gifts From Enola's side of their split w/ Caravels.

I see they also have a full length coming out in November, from which only two tracks are up for listen on their bandcamp. I'll listen to that and the split before the year's up. Thank you Larv :party:.

6. Dumbsaint - Something That You Feel Will Find Its Own Form
7. Collapse Under the Empire - Fragments of a Prayer

Disagree with that critique. I think the inclusion of the Wordless Music Orchestra makes a huge difference, and I think conceptually it feels like they're really moving past whatever "post-rock" initially meant and just making the most gorgeous, cinematic music a guitar-oriented group can manage.

Well Hymns featured a 28-piece chamber orchestra, but granted, this feels different and their early albums weren't so orchestral. Mono has always been past whatever post-rock was supposed to be, especially since You Are There. They were never in the aping EITS or Mogwai business and they never tried to do what Godspeed did, but for an album like this to maximize its potential it needs a trumpet or a distortion pedal or some of the heaviness from their first three albums or something to make it sound like more than a Michael Bay film score.

If it's any solace, this year seems weaker than the past few. The post-rock doesn't compare to 2011. Black and doom have been strong, but all the albums now at the top took a long time to get there. The Baroness album took a ton of patience. I still need to give more time to Swans and Dψdsengel, both of which are massive albums. I've yet to hear an album this year that blew me away from the get go (I don't know what this portends for you and lack of time :eyes:). I've considered patience a forte of mine for a while now, I've even prided myself on it, but this year has been really trying.

And I do miss the collaboration.

It's no "Notes for the Synthesis" or "Plains of the Purple Buffalo", but not every post-rock album needs to have an orchestra on it in order to be interesting.

I'm not so sure the new Caspian will be as outstanding as I might have otherwise expected.

I agree completely that Absolution was their peak. Origin of Symmetry was my favorite overall. I do think that the song writing for Black Holes and Resistance were amazing. I loved every song from the first five albums. I seriously thought they could not write a bad album until I listened to the new album...

So the new Revocation EP is out. I think it's better than anything on their most recent album, and is among their best material. What do you guys think?

So the new Revocation EP is out. I think it's better than anything on their most recent album, and is among their best material. What do you guys think?

The first song is pretty good, but it don't care for those backing vocals starting at 2:35. The next song was just alright, nothing particularly interesting until the solo. "Maniacally Unleashed" is one of the strongest tracks. It's awesome all the way through. Then comes the title track, which is heavy, but feels somewhat repetitive and has a slight Job for a Cowboy feel to it. As it has already been said, it's basically generic modern death metal, but I think the solo saves it from being too mediocre. After that "Bound by Desire" brings everything back to life. The solos in this song are incredible and definitely the highlight of the EP. It might be one of my favorite Revocation songs. Overall Teratogenesis is very enjoyable, but I still think that Existence is Futile stands as Revocation's strongest work.

Yep, it looks like this is shaping up to be the best post-rock release of the year...

Pretty much this. I'd rank Revocations work like this:

Existence is Futile> Empire of the Obscene> Chaos of Forms> Teratogenesis

New Muse has leaked!!!

And it blows!

Electronica, Dubstep and Alternative Rock. It can be a good mix, but Muse fucked it up. 3 albums in a row they have disappointed me. I have officially given up on them.Muse has always had some degree of electronica in their music, so nothing has changed here except maybe for the relative amount of it in the mix - and no, don't even think about saying, "yeah, it's ALL electronic this time!", because it's clearly not. The supermassive distaste for dubstep on this forum just makes me laugh. They do it on exactly ONE fucking track. One. And to tell you the truth, it's not overdone and it actually sounds kinda cool to me. Some of you people on here and your sensitive gag reflexes just make me chuckle. All electronic-sounding stuff is not dubstep. Get it through your heads. :rolleyes:

EDIT: Also, are you saying that "Black Holes" was a disappointment?!?

It does blow. Have you listened to it?? It's nothing but slow songs. :(There is some truth here. The songs are a bit more tame this time around, and there are really no clear bangers like "Stockholm", "Hysteria", "Supermassive" or "Knights" on the new album. However, I think to say "it blows" is exaggerating quite a bit.

I got the promo in my email late last night. I got 6 songs in before I had to click stop, then click delete. I just couldn't do it. I don't get what happened. they were phenomenal until Absolution *their highest peak*, then they just decided to go mainstream and the quality of songs just suck.Congratulations on being objective and / or patient. :rolleyes: Kids these days. It's all about instant gratification or fuck it and move on to the next sensory stimulus.

I seriously thought they could not write a bad album until I listened to the new album...Another overstatement in my opinion.

It's a sad state for sure. How they thought doing Dubstep was going to make them a better band is beyond me. but I know at this point there is no going back. They are just going to continue to suck. Its not fair.One song. One fucking song. Cool your jets, son.

I just heard the song Unsustainable and it sounded pretty cool, but it didn't sound like Muse. I'd like to hear how part two of the song is. The other songs I heard (Survival and Madness) were pretty boring.Part two of the song has no dubstep in it, and it sounds rather like typical Muse fare. I do agree that the overall feel is that there is less to get excited about on this album, but there are definitely some classic Muse sounds here, and it's actually less of a departure from their typical style than "The Resistance" was. In a way, it's a return to form, with some experimentation in a few new directions. It's interesting, but not great.

I listened to the album last night, and really liked it. Like Nat said, there was only one track with dubstep influence, and it worked, too.

09-26-2012, 08:50 AM
You are definitely correct in everything you say Nat. I also noticed there was only one dubstep sounding song and that didn't stop me from listening to it. Every song is very tame and piano driven. It's definitely Muse, but not how I like hearing them. I like having at least a few hard hitting, guitar driven songs, but this album lacks that. I know Mathew wanted to experiment with more of an orchestral sounding album. I thought he would do something amazing after hearing Exogenesis, but it didn't turn out so well in my opinion. I still have hope for Muse in the future. I'm sure Mathew just needed to get these types of songs out of his system.

In order:


I didn't say it was all dubstep and Electronica, but its heavily in there. the only song, Save Me had anything redeeming about the album and even that didn't.....save the album.

And yes Black Holes and Revelations couldn't have been more of a disappointment in my eyes. As an old fan of Muse I liked when the electronics was in the background, not the forefront. ever since BH&R, that's what it's been.

I'm 24, I can't be that much younger then you. I've been a fan since I discovered Muse on the Little Nicky soundtrack. I'm not into this style of music, it's not growing to grow on me. Muse tried that twice with Black Holes and Revelations and The Resistance, it didn't work then, and this album is more of what I don't like from the band. More so than ever.

Albums don't have to be perfect off the bat. My favorite albums had to grow on me. But it also has to be something I can get into. For me, that's not Muse anymore.

I have a lot of friend Nat's age. I mean yeah I'm a kid to a lot of people I know. but on the scale of who goes here, I am one of the older guys here.

But even that is besides the point. He lumped me in with people who want their music to hit them right away or nothing at all, as if I never let music sink in, and that I don't actually care about real music at all. I'm a bit offended by that by how much I have actually accomplished in the last 7 months promoting music, getting a new radio show off the ground and getting to interview some of my biggest heroes.

Then again, its Metalsetlists, so I might as well just call everyone a fag and carry on with the discussion. :lol:

You're much closer to being a kid than you are to being my age.

You said in your own words that you gave the Muse album about twenty minues of your time, and then gave up on it, and them, entirely. If that isn't some pretty compelling evidence of a situation where you had very little patience, objectivity or proper perspective on things, then I don't know what is.

(Note the proper use of "than" and "then" above.)

Yeah I did. If a failing band, in my eyes, over several albums can't capture my interest half way into an album, Its so very, very rare that they will win me back with the second half. So there was no point in hearing the rest of the album at the time when half an album had caught zero interest.

Still trying to figure out how the age thing has anything to do with how I feel about an album. I am bombarded with music from promos and bands and my own discoveries, especially in the last 7 months. at 38GBs of 2012 currently and the year is far from done. Not spouting about that, if anything its a burden. While its a good burden to have, overwhelmingly it takes up a lot of my time to really dig into an album. At this point, if half an album has literally nothing I like about it, at all, there's no point in trying out the rest. Not when there is more music I gotta check out for what I do.

And if you really wanna get into my using "Than/Then", learn how to spell "minutes".

I got Dublin Deat Patrols new one and the new Pathology. DDP is fucking fantastic thrash. Heavy fast with some awesome slower songs. Butcher Baby stands out because it's basicly a crossover song and it kicks ass.


I'm not all the way through Pathology but it's nothing fantastic but they have some real ripping solos in it. The vocals are real iffy now too.


and for any who care Troglodyte has pre-orders up for their new album! :party: I pre-ordered mine last night and if it all sounds as good as the last album and this new song....then I have no doubt it will by high in my top 10

And if you really wanna get into my using "Than/Then", learn how to spell "minutes".You really think I don't know how to spell "minutes"? Really? Do you think anybody here is buying that shit?

Your misuse of the word "then", however, is well-documented. You do it all the time, so clearly it's not a typo. Mine was. Obviously.

..and as far as the ongoing argument about the music (which is about to stop now), the fact of the matter is that you bailed on the album and the band after giving them twenty lousy minutes. That's lame. End of story. I nearly hated Yellow & Green on first listen, but now it's one of my favorite releases of 2012. That happened because I took a patient approach with the music - fact. ...and as far as your pitiful excuse about having too many albums and too little time (you big bad media mogul, you :rolleyes:)...trust me, if there's a motherfucker on this forum who's busier than a one-armed wallpaper hanger, then it's me way the fuck more than it is you.

...but I still find time to be objective. Either that, or I just keep my trap shut and let the people who have actually listened to the album give their (hopefully informed) opinions on it.

tl;dr: you ripped the fuck out of an album based on listening to half of it and that makes you lame

Major depression will set in if this album is a disappointment.I have good news and bad news for you. First, the bad news. Remember that pg.lost album you thought was the best post-rock album released so far this year? Well it might have been, but now it's not anymore.

Now the good news. "Waking Season" has unseated it. Yeah, that's fucking right.
