I consider Watain to be the one of the prime examples of what black metal should be. This is the ONLY black metal album that I keep listening to over and over again. From the tortured vocals to the (as some would say) melodic and hate-filled guitar work it is the perfect black metal album, the production value is, again, perfection for black metal. It's raw but not so raw as to deter people away from it.
ALthough this album was good, it is far from their best. I'd say its a toss up between Casus or Sworn to the Dark, both very good and feel a bit more memoriable than this one.

Anyway, keep 'em coming, man.




I'm gonna continue this tonight because I need something to keep myself busy

I forgot about this thread.

ON TO THE NEXT ONE




Whitechapel- This Is Exile (2008)




One of the first "extreme metal" albums I actually purchased before listening to any of. I was in F.Y.E. a few weeks after it's release trying to find teh most br00talist shit evar. Yeah I was young and inexperienced in metal. The band have dropped their heavily brutal death metal influenced riffage in favor of a more melodic tone. This is hardly As I Lay Dying style melodic leads. There is also a lot of soloing on this album. A common problem with deathcore bands is THEY CAN'T SOLO! This is not the case for Whitechapel. The solos found in songs like Possession and To All That Are Dead are brilliant, and a few more would've really helped the album a lot. There are probably more breakdowns on here than there were on The Somatic Defilement (a lot), but once again, they never use the same one twice. Phil Bozeman is still a good vocalist. He still sounds incredible and unique, and his higher vocals have improved a lot from the last album. Guy Kozowyk from The Red Chord also pops up on Exalt. He makes a good change from Phil's grunts and screams for all of two lines.The drums, once again, are excellent. The blasts are fast, the fills are expertly done, the breakdowns are groovy, the tone is great. The drums are just exactly what you need on an album. A perfect rhythm with lots of tempo changes and fast parts. The album also contains some bits between tracks where a distorted demonic voice is heard. I have no idea what it's supposed to represent, but it doesn't last long and really only serves as brief interludes. The final track also contains an ambient section that lasts most of the song, before going back to the Whitechapel sound with Phil growling "I AM THE END!" over and over, as low as he can. A great end to a great album. To this day it is still in my top 10 favorite albums.


Favorite Tracks:

Eternal Refuge (also one of my all time favorite tracks)

Father Of Lies

Possession

To All That Are Dead


Hey JD, here's that sweet ignorant deathcore

Yeah, all this.

TIE is still good, but nothing compared to Somatic.

You don't seem to grasp the concept of "ignorant deathcore".

And I will be the fourth to say it: The Somatic Defilement > This Is Exile.

I really don't get what you guys see about The Somatic Defilement. Nothing too special about it, IMO.
