Your guys' thoughts on the new Intronaut album?
all those possible deaths and i get to roll the worst one baka senpai
I didn't listen to the first one but this one is STRAIGHT up Scandinavian folk music. It's as Swedish as it gets (or well, up until the strings at least). I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually a cover of some traditional visa.
FOR THE POWER OF THE ANCIENT FORCE
STARS ARE SHINING
RIDING ON THE WINGS OF LIGHT
Why? That single was abysmal. The entire drum kit was triggered and sounded like a literal robot playing. Everything else was fine I suppose but I can already tell that the whole thing will be completely Petrucci-centric and the mixing will be total shit.
>pitchfork likes it
>THEREFORE IT'S HIPSTER XD
are you serious m8
if anything you're just a hipster on the side of the other coin, because you actually fucking bother to see what ''hipsters'' like and don't like
good job on being just as bad, if not worse
reccing this awesome non-hipster sludge btw
What do you all think of Deathcore?
Because this is definitely the best album of 2015.
man this album was/is underrated. not exactly metal though.
Trying to branch out into some swedish dm, enjoying pic related atm. What else should I listen to?
Listened to this song for the first time. This really isn't for me, but I don't understand why people whose favorite Metallica album is the Black album would hate it.
YEAH BUT I TOLDJA I DON'T WANT TO BE A SOILJA
I WILL NOT BECOME THE ONE I'M NOT MOTHERFUCK
THE YOUNG PUP GREW UP
SA SA SA SA SA
SA SA SA SA SA
I kind of agree. St. Anger and The Black Album are equally lame and mediocre, yet there are people who hate onee and love the other.
ah this takes me back to my runescape days
>actually enjoy all of St Anger
However I've spent most of my life drumming and Lars is just so fucking shit I can't get past it. It ruins an album for me, even if the album wasn't that amazing to start with.
That album is the reason he become the biggest meme drummer of all time
really great album, i prefer pic related though desu
This'll be long but here goes:
>Entombed - Left Hand Path
Essential Swedeath album, influenced the scene the most and is usually the first thing to come to mind when you think of Swedish death metal.
>Carnage - Dark Recollections
First Swedeath album.
>Dismember - Like an Everflowing Stream
Borders on melodeath at times, if you love riffs you'll love this.
>At the Gates - The Red in the Sky is Ours
In my opinion their only good release. Most would choose Slaughter of the Soul but TRitSiO is the patrician's choice.
>Eucharist - A Velvet Creation
Hands down the greatest melodeath album ever made. Considering that I only like maybe 4 melodeath albums (including TRitSiO), this stands out as the cream of the crop.
>Uncanny - Splenium for Nyktophobia
Decent sorta melodic death metal
>God Macabre - The Winterlong
Crusty death metal, this is one of Sweden's best.
>Mega Slaughter - Calls from the Beyond
More crusty stuff.
>Gorement - The Ending Quest
>Pan.Thy.Monium - Khaooohs
Avant-garde, the best Dan Swano has to offer.
>Carbonized - Disharmonization
Progressive death metal done right, For The Security is worth checking out as well.
>Edge of Sanity - Unorthodox
My favorite of theirs, more progressive death metal. Nothing But Death Remains and The The Spectral Sorrows are worth a listen as well.
>Merciless - The Awakening
>Comecon- Converging Conspiracies
>Desultory - Into Eternity
>Authorize - The Source of Dominion
>Epitaph - Seeming Salvation
>Centinex - Subconscious Lobotomy
Essential thrashy death metal
>Therion - ...of Darkness
They'd later change their style but this is a solid release
Necrophobic - The Nocturnal Silence
Much obliged, anon. Some of these I'm slightly familiar with, but I need to dig into em more. About to start Entombed in a sec.
The rest I'll just do all at once with no description. These are all good classic albums (I'm not even going to try modern Swedeath) so here you go:
Excruciate - Passage of Life
Utumno - Across the Horizon
Cematery - Godless Beuaty
Morpheus - Son of Hypnos
Hypocrisy - Penetralia
Sorcery - Bloodchilling Tales
Unleashed - Where no Life Dwells
Wombbath - Internal Caustic Torments
Seance - Fornever Laid to Rest
Toxaemia - Beyond the Realm
Agretator - Delusions
Suffer - Structures
Crematory - Denial
Vermin - Plunge into Oblivion
Tiamat - Sumerian Cry
You already have Grave covered so I don't need to cover them. There are others but as far as essentials and lesser known gems go, this should suffice.
When I used to be huge into melodic and technical death metal I used to love them, now not so much. Their debut I'll admit is a decent slab of melodeath alongside The Moaning, Gates of Ishtar, and A Mind Confused
The only death metal (whether it be the actual classics or the new school revival of it) I care for now is old school death metal and stuff more in the war metal vein. In general I'm into any death metal that I feel captures the raw, aggressive, and evil nature of what the genre should be. It's still my favorite genre of music in general however.
>In general I'm into any death metal that I feel captures the raw, aggressive, and evil nature of what the genre should be
If it doesn't do this, isn't it pretty much just Life metal?
It might as well be
I don't like listening to over-produced and clean sounding death metal (and extreme music in general for that matter. Technical death metal bands which feature 10 minute songs consisting of neoclassical guitar solos that go on for 3 minutes, melodic death metal that tries to be Iron Maiden with raspy screams, doomier stuff that constantly tries fitting in cheap synths to make itself sound grand, one-note slam that pretends its not deathcore, and dime-a-dozen Cannibal Corpse/Bolt Thrower knock offs don't capture what I like about death metal nowadays.
Honestly death metal's making a comeback. 94 was the last consistently good year for death metal but around the late 2000's many bands started bringing back the old school sound and plenty of great albums have come out. Not to mention all the Demilich and Incantation influenced bamds that keep growing in number. The majority by in large is shit but we have plenty of great bands now (Obliteration, Horrendous, Teitanblood, Swallowed, Zealotry, The Wakedead Gathering, Howls of Ebb, Lantern, Vasaeleth, Ritual Necromancy, Ascended, Funebrarum, Hellvetron, Serpent Ascending), They're honestly might be more quality bands around now than in the 90's even if they're not as good as their predecessors.
>It's basically fact
brutal DM isn't trying to sound like OSDM nor is it a dumbed-down version. you're looking at it from the wrong context
and i assure you there's a lot more in modern death metal than the narrow stereotypes you mention here >>61821923
Those vocals are fucking shit, why is it every time something is prog influenced it has to go overboard on the shitty vocals ? Sounding like ass doesn't make you anymore complex, find something on the guitar for fuck's sake.
I listen to a lot of modern death metal, I was describing the majority. I mentioned here >>61822362 modern bands I like and that's honestly nothing, I could easily list off a hundred.
so, like basically every technical death metal band? CD are decidedly nothing special
those examples are sort of what i expected, i'd argue that war metal and stuff like vasaeleth is closer to "dumbed down OSDM" than BDM is
HoE, Obliteration, Horrendous, and Zealotry are good though imo
I will be first in line at the mall then FYE when it opens to purchase this astonishing album.
Igvinimous, Eroded, Rude, Antediluvian, Grave Upheaval, Portal, Mitochondrion, Ulcerate, Flourishing, Excruciating Thoughts, Ketzer, Begrime Eximious, Aevangelist, Abyssal, Adversarial, Witchrist, Irkallian Oracle, Grave Miasma, Prosanctus Inferi, Malthusian, Ectovoid, 9th Plague, Dead Congregation, Fauther Befouled, Krypts, Encoffination, Disma, Undergang, Decrepitaph, Ritual Chamber, Chasm of Nis, Beyond, Putrevore, Backyard Mortuary, Impetuous Ritual, Blaspherian, Denouncment Pyre, Revenge, Diocletian, Phobocosm, Denial, Blaspherit, Tyrant Goatgaldrakona, Grave Ritual, Ending Quest, Serpants Athirst, Desolator, Wrathprayer, Morbus Chron, Tribulation, and Orloff are all more bands I'd add and I'm still missing a lot.
They're not from Sweden but they do sound Swedish
>music labeled as genre X today has nothing in common with what genre X was in the past, and no one plays what it was in the past minus a few mediocre revival acts, therefore it's officially dead
Why is this praised here? It has some nice special parts but overall its just feels too much like alternative metal.
Possessed based their sound off of a mixture of what Hellhammer and Venom were doing. Then the first wave of death metal bands took their influence from Possessed, even in as early as '89 bands like Autopsy, Obituary, and Sempiternal Deathreign put great focused on being slow paced and doomy. The first wave of black metal influenced death metal more than thrash.
Post pictures of young bands
Pic related is Leprous when they were 15
Possessed is closer to early black metal than thrash in my opinion. Even then both genres are equally influenced by NWOBHM and speed metal. Either way, the point is that death metal didn't start out by trying to be a heavier form lf thrash, even if it ever did it was short lived considering by '89 death metal had bands that were something else completely. If you see Death as the first death metal band then sure I can see why, but I personally see Possessed and Poison as the originators of the sound.
As a whole, preferring tech death to OSDM is shit taste despite all the great tech death bands. Even then bands like Demilich, Gorguts, Atheist, Violent Dirge, and Oppressor are both OSDM and tech death.
I know, Zealotry, Artificial Brain, Exruciating Thoughts, Flourishing, and Pyrrhon are great. Psycroptic's first two albums as well. Even Necrophagist has some good stuff. But go on, list whatever tech death you really think is God-tier.
Anyone have any good sound bites I can get from 70s grindhouse/horror flicks to sample for the intros of songs like so
So you just fall for everything that extensively features dissonance? None of those bands do anything interesting, ad nauseam, diskord, baring teeth, antediluvian are a milliom times better
But color me surprised you're taste is actually really good, I expected shit like Spawn of Possession, Brain Drill, Beyond Creation, and Obscura but all of those bands are actually really good, especially Diskord. And yes, I love tech death bands that feature a lot of dissonance, it suits the genre they play very well.
>mfw i'm starting to enjoy stupid over the top gore themed death metal which i originally avoided when i was younger because i thought it was "immature"
Well I did only rec you dissonant stuff because it seems you're not very open to other stuff, I don't see what's wrong with spawn of possession, obscura or beyond creation though, they're really good too
Too noodily for my taste. Alongside that I dislike the extremely clean and polished production the bands use, if they played another genre other than death metal it wouldn't be issue. And even then dissonance isn't all I like in tech hence why I listed, Atheist, Hieronymous Bosch, Oppressor, Psycroptic, Necrophagist, and Excruciating Thoughts in tech death I like.
I don't get how those bands are too noodily when you like necrophagist(which I like too)
But if you really like osdm kind of tech check out monstrosity 2nd album, luciferion, mithras, heaving earth
>finally go through inquisition's discography
>get upset when i finish ominous doctrines of the spooky space frog because i thought it was their newest album, released 4 (now 5) years ago
>read these posts
i feel stupid but happy
from an interview with their vocalist
Derek: The list of musicians who cite Possessed as a major influence is like a who’s who of death metal greats. Who were your biggest influences in the early days?
Jeff: While we have always tried to stay “ourselves” and true to being a truly original band. I have to be honest in saying that bands like Exodus, Mercyful Fate, Motorhead, Ozzy/Sabbath have always really moved me.
Muhammed can write some mean riffs. Spawn of Possession and Obscura don't capture that aggressive and heavy feel that death metal should have. Muhammed plays fast sure but he knows how to make it fit the tone of death metal. Even then Necrophagist isn't as noodily as bands like Spawn of Possession and Braun drill.
Also I like Monstrosity, dislike Mithras, and don't care for the other two.
Exodus is the only thrash there. Even then you can tell the band were influenced by other heavier acts, you don't go from Bonded By Blood and Ace of Spades to Seven Churches in one leap.
here's more proof for you, stop reinventing history pls
Im looking back at the old Death demos and Im pretty convinced that death invented it. This is clearly death metal from '84 and the '84 Possessed demo is way thrashier
Fine I'll admit I was wrong about Possessed's influences.
Damn I wonder why I never tried listening to Death's demos, I've listened to some of Chuck's stuff with Mantas but what I hear from this is just as good, if not better than SBG.
So, what's some of the best metal available for free on bandcamp? Specifically bandcamp, but I'm not gonna be an asshole if something is put out free by the band on their own shit like Demilich and you post it.
Also, yeah I'm aware music is available for free if you download illegally, but fuck man, I'm curious.
I know of, off the top of my head, Cormorant, Okazaki Fragments, Plebeian Grandstand, Zillah, & Elder Giants
Also PUNCTURED HIDE
yeah wasnt that atmos tech death or something
>Afterbrith apparently dropped the vocals for their new record
What's the opinion on this album? I personally love Bloodbath but I don't usually see people mention them.
i don't get much love in soundcloud threads, so I thought I'd try posting here. i make heavy music by myself.
not tr00. feedback is appreciated
this sounds like bland Demilich worship to me but people seem to be loving it
but that's what people told me about Artificial Brain's album which I thought was much more distinct and enjoyable
am i just retarded or what
Chthe'ilist's album does benefit from having someone other than Marston handling the production admittedly
Is this what metal fans call atmoshit? I kind of like it.
>The incredible pain of having been a Dream Theater fan and denying with the utmost hope the ludicrous drop in quality their output has suffered since 1999
Emperor Nafaryus. The BBEG on this concept album is named Emperor Nafaryus. God.
I wouldn't fuck with this guy.
>ok that looks pretty go-
>those last two
>implying preordering isn't stupid and you shouldn't just wait til you know if the album is good via trusted recommendation/ streaming
It's almost like you're trying to be a fucking faggot
