    So apparently Boston horde Wilderun is suppose to be an early Opeth gone folk. I can certainly see that in these compositions. Not bad at all.

    In my quest to find worthy new underground US death metal, I came upon House of Atreus, which, according to reviews, is Arghoslent without the racism.

    the best part is, while searching for reviews I came upon this gem: http://www.angrymetalguy.com/house-atreus-spear-ichor-follows-review/

    skip straight to the comments section. anyone recognize the first commentator?

    GMD's average age is 18. RC is the AARP of metal forums.

    fuuuuuuck here's another game changer. this link is for the full album, but just listen from the beginning. i would call this prog/and or melodic death metal. MASSIVE sound



    This is from 2014 but they are releasing a new album this year. Seriously good shit, do not skip over this you fuckers.

    Cool, sounds like At The Gates with Martin van Drunen on vocals at times.
    Apple Music had two albums so I am syncing them to my iPhone for consumption at work tomorrow.

    Winterlore showed up today. Great CD. Cool packaging too. Also received Wilderun's two albums. Got a "Thanx for the support" message from both bands. Plus pins and stickers. No pubes though

    Nechochwen - "Heart of Akamon"

    Oh my god this album is so good. Its a triumph of the black/folk genre. I have to give it some time (it was released today), but this might beat out Obsequiae for AOTY. Just... Wow

    WELL???? I am totally in awe of this band and their musicianship. I mean… its one of those albums that is just perfect, I wouldn't change a thing. The most refreshing aspect of "Heart of Akamon" is how technical it is. It is simultaneously soulful, atmospheric, and complex.
