    I'm gonna give it another listen when the better leak surfaces, but generally, I was disappointed. I mean, for another band it would be a great album, but for the dong not really. I just really wanted a badass, heavy album, rather than a prog album.



    As for Obscura, they aren't THAT bad, but they're very average...definitely not worthy of their name haha. They honestly just remind me of Necrophagist with Spawn of Possession parts.

    Any good Black Metal albums come out besides the new BAN? I have a very strange craving for BM this week. :loco:

    I agree about Mournful Congregation - June Frost. I just checked out Obscura - Cosmogenesis, and it's also great (I didn't think it would be that good because the word "prog" really puts me off). The Absu and Cannibal Corpse are very good too. One album that disappointed me this year was the new Seance. It sounds something like a less gay version of The Haunted. Not even in the top five of the year so far for me.

    I got the new Fens album earlier and have just given it a full listen. I remember thinking the EP, or whatever they put out, was pretty decent and this is too. From what I can recall (I can't seem to find the previous release on my PC now) this sounds a lot more like older Agalloch. Decent atmospheric BM.

    I haven't heard it yet but that's disappointing to hear.

    I like'd how it was more prog and from what i've heard they put the album together well. It's not as heavy as i expected either but it's alot easier to get into than their other albums, and it's a really creepy album which gives it a sense of heaviness, even when the music is more calm.

    It is definitely in my top 3 now, the first track is one of the best tracks I've heard this year.

    I have not listened to a 2009 album yet. I better get a move on so I can keep up with all the cool kids on this board.

    Haven't heard this yet. How would you rate it compared to Bliss of Solitude?

    My friend bought this the other day. We listened to a little bit of the first song. It was kinda cool I guess. I'll have to get him to let me borrow it.

    I've heard samples of Absu and Blut Aus Nord and they weren't really worth hearing. Tribulation seems good.

    Just as good as Bliss. Bliss was my album of the year last year next to Gates Of Slumber and Hammers Of Misfortune.

    HAH!!! :lol:


    I listened to the new Kylesa song on their My Space page and it rules. Prosthetic Records has a pre-order of it for $10.00 so I might have to reserve my copy now. They also have a couple of really nice t-shirt/CD packages for $20.00.
