    This is all theoretical though. Like, do you have any inklings of how it would go together? Examples you can cite of SOMEWHAT the right idea? Just saying "I wanna hear a band that doesn't stick to one style but still keeps it cohesive" is supremely vague. It's like saying "I want to hear a brutal death metal band with spoken word poetry about flowers". Okay, great, but uh...

    None whatsoever...but it's not that hard,surely....a competant band that is well versed in these gemres should be able to come up with something...alot have hinted at it.Fuck change up the guitar tone,do whatever....

    It all depends on how it's done, really. Although rare, compilations can be cohesive too. And I typically will listen to an album from start to finish regardless, so it wouldn't be an issue with me. I think if a band went into studio with the sole intent of making an album where every song sounds entirely different from each other, then I'd be inclined to agree with you. However, if a band absorbed all of their influences and ideas and were able to pool them all together effectively, then I don't see any problem. The Meads of Asphodel are an even better example than Akercocke for this and I have absolutely no qualms about them whatsoever, I love their music and style. They could probably mix together any combination of styles and you would still get something that still retains the band's character and integrity with enough strength to hold it together cohesively.

    Whether you like those bands is up to you but basically, it can be done. It's just that most bands choose not to do so or are limited in their influences, creativity, ideas, vision etc. I personally like it when each song on an album stands out to me and is memorable in it's own right. I think a lot of metal bands tend to stay within the formula a bit too much.

    Ok. Why you're being mad about it. It's not like a crime to dislike a band.

    I can't stand Hellhammer or Celtic Frost and Elvenefris is an incredible album.

    Do you also use a Mac and have AIDS? That's the vibe I'm getting here.

    Danny, don't listen to the nazi boy. I don't know why Lykathea Aflame was brought up in the first place, but it's a rare band that can incorporates ethnic elements while still being fucking aggresive and they are also very technical (especially on drums played by Tom Corn) and I still like them. You know that I despise "technical death metal" just for the sake of it but this is not the case.

    I don't see why someone doesn't like them just for being idiosyncratic - that's the way it is and you can't deny the things I said about them in the first paragraph. Definitely check Elvenefris out before judging.

    Also, check out !T.O.O.H.! if you don't know them already. Another classic czech weird-ish death metal act.

    What? Being shitty?

    That's because it's missing Layne

    They're not "idiosyncratic," they're an incoherent pander to wannabe art fags. They've never gotten past the Old Spice (it's two things!) method of songwriting. Basically, they exist so that socially insecure people can impress people on the internet with their unique tastes. No one, however, actually listens to them, and you don't either. So stop frontin', fool.

    I agree. Anyone who deliberately subjects themselves to Lykathea Aflame would pretty much have to be.

    Yes; horrible, unjustifiable, formulaic, faux art shit.

    I've wanted to get a copy for a while, but it seems almost impossible to get my hands on one.

    I'll save you the time, trouble and wasted money.

    Every Song on Elvenfris:

    melodymelodymelodymelodyBLASTBLASTBLASTBLASTBLASTBLASTBLAST
    melodymelodymelodymelodyBLASTBLASTBLASTBLASTBLASTBLASTBLAST
    melodymelodymelodymelodyBLASTBLASTBLASTBLASTBLASTBLASTBLAST

    Rinse. Wash. Repeat until 5-10 minutes have passed. They want you to be very aware that they can be melodic and brutal, and they think you should be impressed with their cleverness.

    We get it. I'm all for proselytizing the forum with the ANUS doctrine, but I'm starting to think the members of LA gang-banged your mother or something.

    Edit: I don't give two fucks about the band, for what it's worth.

    They wasted my time, which is a deadly sin as far as I'm concerned.
