Posting most under-appreciated finndeath
Babymetal reporting in
dug up this Finnish band last night on metallum looking for a decent gothic/death metal band. The Gothic part is only very lose but it's quite good death.
Rec me some good music to get a sick NECK
already trashed m8
Nah just throwing down bombs of truth, friend.
Demilich is trash played by talentless hacks. It seems that everyone has fallen for their "see we are actually good by being shit guys!" gimmick.
I don't want watered down bands like Unholy to be on such a prodigious list as the best Finnsih metal bands.
What's the best BM, be it atmoshit or not, 2016 release so far?
All I have is the Krallice EP, which is barely BM any more.
you know i actually had a dream that i went to see the tour for this
and then i read the program they gave us and saw that it was 8 hours long and my eyes bugged out a little
did u look at the space grind recs i gave? think you'll like alien crucifixion, how can you resist something with track titles like "Raped by Xenu"
>no mention of finnish GOAT
Step it up, geez.
Alien Crucifixion was something else, man
not really spacey though
have you looked at どてらいやつら by Kou Machida? it's some odd, old japanese synth punk/ borderline industrial at times, seems like your thing seeing how much you like odd Japanese shit
Man I fucking loved Lordi when I was like 10 years old, was scared of their masks when I watched the music videos alone at night but I thought their music was the coolest shit ever. Good times.
They're still a pretty fun band though.
Best Finnish bands
>"see we are actually good by being shit guys!"
You mind telling us what you mean there buddy
This is absolute madness tbqh familla
>Listen to a bunch of bands when they are coming out with their debuts
>love the shit out of these bands
>over time their sound changes
>10 years later they are entirely unrecognizable
>"LOL U ONLY LIKE THOS ABUMZ CUZ UR ELITEIST"
>when everything finally kicks in at 1:55 with the chorus
god damn I fucking love Judas Priest
The problems is that you faggots act like if the band at their first stage was better than ever.
Do you seriously believe that
is better thanhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPbObVABzz4
i legit love when they go full TIP TAP TOP with the drums on this shit, it's just so fun
The slams are heavy and slow as fuck too, which is good because the only way i really enjoy slams is the way i enjoy death/doom, heavy and slow as shit
The guitar tone is pretty fucking beefy and honestly that's all you really need to make a good slam album
defend wigger slam shirt when
Agreed, The Gallery is fucking top-tier melodeath
India has some prog death bands like Fragarak, Amogh Symphony and Guillotine but it's mostly just shitty djent and prog like Skyharbor
Welcame is decent, too many breakdowns for my taste and not that heavy, definitely a stand out though, i want to see if they make more music and refine their style
definitely not worth the insane amount of shitposting they get here though (no band does deserve that though)
>There are people in this thread right now that aren't in the Furyo state of mind
It's not really about how heavy they get, they just get you really pumped, vithia's voice is magick, I'd say there are too many breakdowns, but every one is so good and well executed
havent listened to babymetal but i don't plan to. i might try it because leda is involved but... the whole viral marketing thing has really turned me off them.
and war metal is just very low-effort with few exceptions. i like some bands like axis of advance but... yeah. stuff like wrathprayer and revenge and teitanblood, man, it just coasts on the sp00ky occult atmosphere and hopes you'll ignore the same generic power chord progressions they spam for the whole album. add to that the unwarranted elitism of the war metal scene despite the incredibly safe, uncreative music they make, and it's not something i have a very good opinion.
Best CC album coming through!
>dat thrash influence
Anyone else enjoy this from last year? Fuck The Facts always keep it quality with every release. There's always one thing or another that keeps it from being generic grind, and that counts for this album, too. Also not to mention I fucking love Melanie she's an absolute monster on the stage live and qt as fuck in person when you talk to her.
Dripping and Jenovavirus.
their dark ambient parts are ok but i'll take mitochondrion over them, that band are very good songwriters who don't just drone on all the time
This actually has top tier songwriting for a pop metal album.
They're what started the decline into commercial mediocrity. Clayman was testing the water, and Reroute To Remain was diving in head-first.
Everything after that is pure garbage and isn't worth being considered.
Can you guys rec me something with extremely beefy/harsh guitar tone?
pic related is probably the heaviest shit i listened to just because of the guitar tone
Nah. They are unique in that every album they have released has gotten more regressive and primal. It's a cool take on music just because more bands try to become more progressive and "mature" songwriting wise, but these guys always go on to become more primitive. I have yet to listen to the latest album where this may not be true, but it's true for the ones before it. This has allowed them to reach a level of primitive that most war metal doesn't go towards.
As for Wrathprayer they are also far from generic war metal being closer to something like Pseudogod but with more black metal feel to it.
Pretty sure you already know it though, but still the guitar tone is razor-shaped on this album
yeah man, really good tone through out, waiting for that new album
check out Yacopsae btw
i'll check it out
doesn't sound that harsh, can you gib a link to one of their harshest songs?
The tone of the instruments on that album are beefy, but nowhere near harsh.
You might like Insect Warfare's World Extermination. Guitars are beefy yet also rawer and more harsh than the ones on Prowler In The Yard.
as much as i like World Extermination i don't think they have an harsher guitar tone than anything by Pig Destroyer
the Noise Grind EP is definitely harsh as fuck though
...I think we have a different definition of harsh then. Prowler is borderline overproduced for example, it's lacking the feeling of rawness that is needed for having a harsh tone.
GET THE FUCK UP
GET THE FUCK UP
That album is so fucking intense
It's the best thing Portal ever made
someone shop abbath in here or give me the template to do so
I guess I don't have the context to appreciate the differences between bands in the style, sort of like how other people would say that brutal DM bands (or whatever other genre I'm more versed in) all sound the same. But yeah it's definitely not interesting to me.
It's a very direct genre, though, there's no real higher thing to "get". It's just straightforward bludgeoning and I like my warfare to be a bit more high-tech.
I actually went into this expecting it to sound like Terrifyer but man they botched it up bad, it sounds cleaner, like they got rid of a lot of the distortion that makes grind what it is
then again i'm pretty late to this
I think I understand what you mean. Most people like music that's a little bit challenging but safe enough for them, war metal isn't really challenging however. There are no fancy or techy riffs, nor will you find progressive song structures. It's straightforward hate and aggression, and most people like for there to be clear cut riffs that tone down the aggression as opposed to incoherent screaming over indecipherable noisy guitar and drums. In a sense war metal is more of an atmospheric thing.
Post personal favorite 2015 releases that didn't get the press and love they deserve.
Imma start with Divine Blasphemy's Beyond The Portal. 6-8 minute long songs (except the final song on the album) that just pound you with quality riff after quality riff. Black metal stuff without gimmicks that is actually full of quality riffs without being a war metal band or melodic Dissection approach (looking at you Mgla) is hard to find and this album does the job well though.
Recommendations for bands like Finntroll?
Which makes it really redundant to me because there's only so many ways you can make incredibly primitive music sound engaging. Slightly different themes and production styles don't distract from all the bands in the genre basically having the same goal and achieving it to a varying degree of success. It just feels like a creative dead end to me.
I get that it's not about creativity, but why would I want to listen to something if it's ignoring any attempt at making a statement of any unique artistic or aesthetic value?
>why would I want to listen to something if it's ignoring any attempt at making a statement of any unique artistic or aesthetic value?
If you took a different perspective maybe then you would listen to it? There's a lot of different music in the world; to approach it all the exact same is folly to the versatile nature of the medium.
post a more pissed off sounding album
protip: you can't
i posted this the other day too i think it's better than outre'
more dense playing, relies less on murky production to get the atmosphere (still murky but less so)
seepia is gr8 too but it's also their closest to a regular ol death metal album
I liked this album and dweller on the threshold a lot. What genres do they both fall under?
HOLY FUCKING SHIT I'M DYING
Non-metal Amorphis is best Amorphis. Everything after Am Universum is shit.
Yup. I think when the decade's gonna be over, outside gimmick shit people are gonna remember it for the bands that do straddle that black/death line like Wrathprayer, Pseudogod, Bolzer, Antediluvian, and Divine Blasphemy. Guys that cared for quality songwriting without care for gimmicks.
How come no one told me this was strapping young lads best album?
>pic very related
ITT: we post things to trigger the autist from last thread
did someone say Finland :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
What are some good bands from this state that aren't thrash or Autopsy
>the whole war metal scene is very single-minded
>actually using that epithet to describe a subgenre of a subgenre of a subgenre
There's subtle yet glaring differences between war metal bands, just like there is between any other two bands that belong in the same subcategory.
Naturally war metal's trait is the extremity and single-mindedness, but if you're telling me you can't see a difference between Bestial Warlust, Conqueror and Revenge, then we're obviously perceiving music with some radical differences.
You come off just as ignorant as people that say death metal or grind is really uncreative and single-minded.
When did Sludge go from this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYTkprJYz60
Any active bands other than Dragged into Sunlight that are still like the former?
Gimmicks over actual songwriting. It's not even that she's a girl, she just sucks. Like shit if you want a girl doing good in a black metal-esque environment look no further than Adorior's lead singer who may not be attractive like Myrkur here, but instead she can do hella amazing vocals that definitely make Adorior's brand of black/death that much more intense.
And that rawness works in favor for both punk and metal, losing that is a good argument for why a band gets worse
Why is "maturing" good for the more extreme genres of metal.
Ape Cave isn't sludge though. They are stoner metal. There's a huge misunderstanding that any band that does downtuned guitars to have a thick tone is automatically sludge (Electric Wizard, Mastodon, etc.) No. people often forget that there has to be a hardcore punk influence for it to be sludge, too.
Only bands like
actually have a legit sludge sound
>And that rawness works in favor for both punk and metal, losing that is a good argument for why a band gets worse
Oop I misread your last post. I agree
Don't worry anon it's not autistic unless you treat it like an infallible law that all bands will get worse with time
Why can't metalfags appreciate quality production?
Except I do when I'm listening to other genres of music. Why listen to extreme metal when you can't handle the raw and dirty feel of it? It's like wanting to watch horror movies but refusing to watch anything rated over PG, or like wanting to eat Spanish food while hating anything remotely spicy, why even try?

torture chain- Mutilating Astral Entities- 2013
drapsnatt- Skelepht- 2012
nattfog- Mustan auringon riitti- 2012
A little ironic coming from someone who claims to know his way around "quality production"
Pic came out before My War, though overall I think My War had a larger group it influenced (not to say Swans didn't influence anyone in sludge just not as many peeps as BF.)
Some of this leans towards hardcore punk but w/e
" The backlash against Myrkur pretty much just proves that people aren't able to think for themselves. Not only is it an excellent album, it's done in such an artful and interesting way that it's become one of my favorite metal releases of the year. The production is a much better quality than her debut EP (which wasn't half bad), thanks to collaboration with Garm from Ulver. And she's not doing the standard boring Darkthrone worship that so many black metal bands stick to; she's clearly listened to her share of Bathory and Celtic Frost, and the old-school black metal textures add a lot, as well as the choral vocal stuff, which makes it almost a darkwave album at times. And I certainly can't find fault with the slower, almost Kate Bush-like tracks.
So it's fine, if closed-minded listeners don't want to like her because she's also in an indie pop band or (shudder) A WOMAN, they can do that. But they're missing out on something special."
>thanks to collaboration with Garm from Ulver
Cuneyt81 gave to Baroness records 5 stars.
Then just a bunch of pleb regular /mu/ shit. There's some patrish non-metal stuff
She gave New Bermuda 5 Stars
Helmet's Meantine, 5 stars
ITAOTS, 5 stars
Radiohead, the bends/kid a/ok computer = 5 stars
so many smiths albums, shit-tier swans albums,
someone literally asked me what i thought of war metal
i know one band may have more black or death or whatever influence than another, but in the end it's just blasting and power chords and it loses its impact after a couple of tracks
Not even the guys you are talking to but shit like "it's just blasting" is objectively wrong. Midtempo, slower sections are an essential part of war metal.
Looking at the rest of your other responses to this whole thing, not only are you ignorant of what the genre has, but instead of taking a "it's just not my thing" route you decided to take a much more pretentious route where you pretend to act like you know your shit.
>instead of taking a "it's just not my thing" route you decided to take a much more pretentious route where you pretend to act like you know your shit.
sincerely apologize for this
it's sort of a cyclical thing really, what i've heard from the genre has bored me so much that i haven't had any interest in giving it another chance
think they'll write new tunes?
>he lets taking a poop disrupt his listening schedule
ideally you want at least a 4-speaker surround setup around your shitter so you never have to go without riffs while dropping a steamy moist load
And that's fine. War Metal especially is a side of metal that's obviously not for everybody. Just don't try to pull the superiority complex thing it may make you look more dickish than you intended.
How are you guys liking the new Boris & Merz collab?
Felt like a rehash of old material plus noise
to be fair, the NWN crowd is like this with basically all modern metal that isn't regressive throwback stuff. Like me, they don't really give tech death (or whatever) an earnest appraisal of what it's aesthetically and musically trying to accomplish before they discard it for not sounding like metal "should".
Oh yeah NWN are like that, too but too much war metal fanboy shit.
Annoying as fuck cuz as someone who is hype for Death Worship (collab between Blasphemy vocalist and Conqueror/Revenge mastermind), me like others did eventually realize that Blasphemy's vocalist is slacking on his vocals and that's why it still hasn't been done despite being announced in 2013. Some peeps like me and a few others at NWN called this bullshit out, but surprise surprise everyone else at the forums were too busy dickriding/justifying the vocalist's bullshit. I like Blasphemy, too. Fallen Angel Of Doom is in my top 10 metal albums. But that doesn't excuse someone not having done shit for an album for almost 3 years now.
Stargazer's last album was put out through NWN
They're cool with whatever style as long as it's ostensibly kvlt
Pretty sure he was mentioning the forums....or at least I was over >>61924469 the label itself is fine though they released some good shit this part year too my favorite probably being Chaos Echoes' Transient (which is also the music on their main page!)
Also Stargazer is awesome Imma give The Scream That Tore the Sky a relisten it's been so long.
Not him, but I was wondering if you know bands like them that don't sing about alcohol all the time. It's a gimmick that I got sick of with alestorm. I know most of the bands already mentioned.
well, the "like me" was comparing the supposed superiority complex to what i see people at NWN have. though >>61924615 it's more war metal's fanbase in general that seems to look down on modern metal trends (which i think is funny since a lot of war metal fans would appreciate some really furious brutal DM)
yeah, and it's their least interesting release yet imo :(
