This guy is such a fag.
i have no idea who that is but judging by that album cover/pic i think i agree with you.
That is my hood but I am not familiar with these guys. Thanks!
I have nothing against his art choices, since I couldn't care less about it, but his music is VERY average. I heard a new track and it was the same run of the mill thing with better production.
what a terrible waste of a great album art
Just made my first haul in awhile, here's some 2019 stuff I found on Bandcamp..
Not sure what's going on with the Gallowbraid, it's technically a 2010 EP. I think he just maybe re-released it with one extra song (which happens to be "Stone of Remembrance," the best fucking Gallowbraid song).
Yeah realized that trusting the Bandcamp release date May have been an error in logic!
It's weird though, because it has new album art. I'm thinking it's gotta be a re-release with a new track.
It's the 2012 vinyl reissue artwork with a redesigned band logo.
Oh shit, I thought it was totally new. The quality is enhanced though.
Good on him to reissue and include "Stone of Remembrance" though, such a killer song.
EDIT: sorry, I missed "vinyl." The original 2010 artwork was different.
Yeah the O.G. art was a photo, I like the new band logo, looks really nice.
Agreed. Hope he puts out something new soon...
Visigoth needs to stop being so successful so he has more downtime, haha.
I remember getting into it with the Gallowbraid guy years ago when he was promoting his band on Gaia Online of all places.
Best so far is SOEN and Horndal.
Favorites from 2019:

Still playing catch-up but this is likely the best I've heard yet. Cheers.
Here's a few more things that I recently discovered:
Nocturnal Witch - A Thousand Pyres (most recent discovery, blasted it twice in a row last night while I was reading, fucking savage two-piece German black/thrash started by the bassist from Sanctifying Ritual)
Seax - Fallout Rituals (catchy as fuck U.S. speed metal with high vocals, gang shouts, motorpunk riffing and a vibrant production, despite all that (or maybe because of it) this didn't click with me right away but I'm enjoying it more and more)
Sadokist - Necrodual Dimension Funeral Storms (cruel-sounding Finnish black metal on the thrashier/bestial side of things but not black/thrash despite what people are saying/the way it's being marketed, definite big nods to the classic second-wave)
Excuse - Prophets from the Occultic Cosmos (more Finnish metal, this time some epic black/thrash/trad metal that is pretty rough around the edges at times but it has a really awesome spirit that is totally fist-pumping and true)
Synteleia - Ending of the Unknown Path (debut from new Greek black metal band, complete with all the classic national influences and out-of-place trad metal elements you might expect, I quite enjoy it so far but only time will tell if it ends up making my AOTY list as I'm pretty fickle when it comes to black metal)
Cryptae - Vestigial (one track EP from experimental death metal Dutch weirdos, check this out if you feel like something a little different but still heavy and unpretentious)
Strangulation - Violence in Degraded Mindset (new EP from Japanese brutal death metallers, this isn't lame slam-meme-tier shit, just straight up brutality)
Örk Bastards - Warmongers of the Gloomy Lands (10 years after they released their killer Final Price tape these Russki fucks finally dropped a full length and it crushes with an iron fist, expect some catchy speed/punk/thrash metal with an overall crusty black metal coating)
Swordwielder - System Overlord (doomy and gloomy Swedish stenchcore/crust metal, this one really takes its time but once it locks in and fires it destroys everything in its path man)
Allagash - Cryptic Visions (Canadian trad/speed metal definitely inspired in part by classic USPM and the early Euro flower metal albums etc, basically just a cool mishmash of classic metal influences thrown together into a really fun album)
Pyöveli - No Speed Limits (cult Finnish speed metal who have been kicking around doing their own caveman throwback thing since the early 00's and not really giving a fuck about what was going on outside their rehearsal space, and fastforward nearly 2 decades later and if anything they've become even more raw and closed-minded)
