You should use pastebin or something man.
I only just found out about that site today
Man, any time I'm listening to something else at the moment I want to go back to The Chasm. This album intrigues me like no other album has in a long time.
Just listened to Lvcifyre-"Svn Eater". God damn what a beast. I thoroughly enjoyed their wall of noise approach, and the riffs are better, clearer, and more intense than the first album. One if the best releases I've listened to so far in my 2914 catch up.
I'm listening to Trenchrot-"Necronomic Warfare" now. So far it's nothing unique, but it's well written, dark, well produced, and kind of fun. Fun in a straight headbang to evil death metal way.
Next up I have:
Near Death Condition-"Evolving Toward Extinction"
Cauldron Black Ram-"Stalagmite"
Acheron-"Kult des hasses"
Hope I enjoy these, but I have low expectations for Acheron and Near Death Condition.
EDIT: Further into Trenchrot. It's obvious they like Asphyx. But still dark and groovy.
God damn it. Auto-correct. It changes words so sneakily. It still better be stalag-tight...ha.
Only even mentioned it because CBR is a fuckin rockin good death metal band.
Honestly, I think I like Swedeath revival stuff even more than most stuff from the early 90s. I haven't heard any Swedeath revival that I haven't loved yet.
One type of death metal I'm just not all that into, though: the slow, sludgey, doomy stuff: Autopsy, Immolation, Incantation, Dead Congregation, Disma, some Morbid Angel even. If I'm in the right mood I'll listen to it, but it often feels very samey.
Some of the bands I've been listening to this week, or plan to listen to, this week: Necrophobic, Grave, Ribspreader, Feral, Necrowretch, Paganizer, Bloodbath, Vampire, Torture Division.
Honestly the new Acheron is really lame.
How is Immolation slow and sludgy? Give them more listens. They're a great band.
They can be at times.
Even if Svn Eater just had the title track, or just that one riff in the title track, it'd be one of the better releases this year.
Been listening to it fairly frequently since I got it, which musta been right at the start of January. That's pretty rare.
Svn Eater is pretty different than The Calling Depths. It took a few tries to grow on me but I've come to appreciate it on its own merits. I do kind of miss the punishing riffs on the debut, though.
Immolation are probably the band I was least sure about listing there, only because I'm not at all familiar with them, and what I have heard of them isn't really like that. More going by what I'd heard.
I should listen more to Immolation sometime, though.
You have a lot more to go Trenchrot is so good. My favorite DM album of this year is Drowned - Idola Specus.
So if anyone is interested, Apophis - Heliopolis is some pretty good old school melodic death metal in the vein of early Amon Amarth and such. Nothing mind-blowing but some really strong songwriting and some tasty riffing.
