Why is every thread in the Album Reviews just arguments about hipster metal lately?

I guarantee my album thread should be 100% devoid of any "hipster" discussion.

When I first heard this, I LOVED it. Actually before a few days ago, it was still in my top ten. But my most recent listen proved to be too much. Still, this album is really interesting. It's very much black metal - but not traditionally. It's really sludgy, too. Could it be... *gasp*... blackened sludge?!
They creep in a lot of melody, as well. Not so much where it becomes expected, but, you know. It's welcomed

Vermillion
Passageways
Nice pick, and the same thing happened to me as well. While I loved it at first, it grew off me pretty quickly.

Yeah, he has great tone for sure. Solid album and I hope to see these guys live because they destroy.

Landmine Marathon - Gallows


Landmine Marathon is one of the most badass death metal bands around today. Granted, they worship Bolt Thrower a bit too much, but they're much more modern-sounding, and they've got a bit of their own sound as well. If you've never listened to them before, I'd urge you to check them out immediately.

Anyway, on to the album. At first listen I was a bit disappointed. No memorable songs or anything. It felt like they were going in the absolutely same direction (not necessarily a bad thing) but not pushing themselves at all. It took several more listens but it's finally warmed up to me. There are a couple memorable songs, actually. However, it is important to note that this album is still nowhere near as good as their previous album, Sovereign Descent. But since these guys have such a unique sound, it's always refreshing to hear them with new material.

Three Snake Leaves
Cutting Flesh and Bone
Good pick. I've been pretty surprised to see this album nowhere on anyone else's list.

It was #19 on DethMaiden's list, and it just MIGHT be on mine when I get around to finalizing it.

I was unsure on first listen but after listening to it a couple of more times, it really grew on me and has a good chance of making mine too.

Get the fuck out, Gallows is easily their best album yet. The production is raw but clear, and there are no filler songs. Kudos to having it on the list though, as someone previously stated the album has been pretty much ignored by most people's lists.
