    yoyo ken & alina :wave:

    Generally agree with this-which kinda makes the good stuff that much more satisfying. While most of erik's points still stand, except # 5, the differences between integrating other genres and 'furthering metal' is kinda tricky to quantify--coincidentally a lot of the 'no scenes' idea is one of the reasons there is so much good usbm right now (that has plenty of character and personality)-i should make a thread about this topic-and finally put an end to that hipster usbm thread-which is really overlooking a lot of the good shit that is coming out

    (btw maaäet is 2006-and you should check out saivo)-

    I feel like some excellent music has come out the past 5-7 years that is very creatively sincere and highly engaging. There are no scenes, but this has also shattered many walls and it I like the blending of genres and influences.

    Only two that stand out to me.

    Solstafir - Svartir Sandar
    SubRosa No Help for the Mighty Ones

    This decade fucking sucks. There were other solid releases which I thought came out this decade, but they were released in '08/'09. Bleh

    2010
    Ares Kingdom - Incendiary (Death/thrash) kill live
    Deathspell Omega - Paracletus (black metal)
    Inquisition - Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm (black metal) kill live
    StarGazer - A Great Work of Ages / A Work of Great Ages (death metal)

    2011
    Aosoth - III (Black metal) kill live
    Cruciamentum - Engulfed in Desolation (death metal ep) kill live
    Mitochondrion - Parasignosis (death metal) kill live
    Mournful Congregation - The Book of Kings (funeral doom) this is seriously one of the best funeral doom albums, they're great live and this album is on par with Monad

    2012

    Agalloch - Faustian Echoes (this is their best release since the mantle imo) i saw them play this live and it was fucking awesome :kickass:
    Anhedonist - Netherwards (death/doom) done tastefully. they killed mdf that year
    Antediluvian - λόγος (if you worship Incantation's Mortal Throne of Nazarene album you must listen to this)
    Dead Can Dance - Anastasis (this album is just as good as their 80s material. they played the whole fucking album when i saw them)
    Ignivomous - Contragenesis (proper Incantation worship. excellent production and heavy riffs)
    Mgła - With Hearts Toward None (i felt this was their strongest release and the songs sounded good live at mdf)
    Vemod - Venter på stormene (black metal)

    2013
    Bölzer - Aura (one of the best bands of mdf 2014. i skipped dark angel to watch their set a second time)
    Cultes des Ghoules - Henbane (all of them witches metal)
    Grave Miasma - Odori Sepulcrorum (killer death metal with the old school atmosphere. they were great at martyrdoom)
    Sacriphyx - The Western Front (death metal with hints of hellenic black metal melodies)
    Summoning - Old Mornings Dawn (imo their best since Dol Guldur)

    2014
    Blood Farmers - Headless Eyes (this album is just as good as their first album which is quite an accomplishment since they're released almost 20 years apart)
    Dead Congregation - Promulgation of the Fall (not as good as their debut but awesome death metal)
    Emptiness - Nothing but the Whole (i've never heard of this band before but this album is excellent death/doom with psychedelic elements)
    Innsmouth - Consumed by Elder Sign (mid-paced death metal with some Hellenic black metal influences)
    Teitanblood - Death (no wimps. this album is fucking phenomenal and in my eyes a modern classic. only death is real)

    Forgot about this one, fantastic fuckin' album. Drought might be even better, those were both from this decade.
    Yes and yes. One of my highlights of metal was experiencing Faustian Echoes live. And not just because I got to spill many beers with Mike and Jerry. :lol:

    was pretty bummed out when they didn't play it live in NYC (June this year). mostly songs from the new album, but some highlights:

    The Melancholy Spirit
    ...and the Great Cold Death of the Earth

    also, NAD. i saw QOTSA in July, and it totally blew my fucking mind. best show i've ever seen (didn't mind the 6th row seats, either). this experience totally flipped my opinion of the new album. i would overall rate it 8/10 and i highly recommend that you revisit this one and perhaps also Era Vulgeris.

    listen to "misfit love"

    I'll probably revisit it eventually. It might take some years, especially since I didn't actually buy a copy. Always heard nothing but amazing things about them live, but the one time I saw them they were pretty ehh really, and that was back when I was a fanboy. Someone did tell me that was an off night per their usual performance, for whatever that is worth. Oh yeah, and I eventually appreciated Era Vulgaris in a specific sort of way, but still don't think it is that great of an album.

    Portal of I and that one Vemod album are both very good, add those to my list as well. I need to spend more time with both though, I recognize them as quality stuff, but don't have any particular attachment to them (yet).

    I'm honestly quite terrible at music nowadays, so my input will be incredibly short, and most probably ignored by all of you.

    Gareth Liddiard - Strange Tourist
    The Drones - I See Seaweed
    Sólstafir - Svartir Sandar
    Sólstafir - Ótta
    Sun Kil Moon - Admiral Fell Promises


    ..and I'd have to think really hard to come up with any more albums from this period that I actually OWN, let alone think worthy to be on such a list.

    Edited my initial list to include 2014.

    I'm glad I still keep up with music. The past five years have been tits!

    Summoning still poops on Summoning clones so hard. You would think they'd be toppled by one or two contenders by now but no, not even close.
    Only enjoyable copycat is Kinstrife & Blood from Australia I reckon.

    i mean summoning is like burzum or bathory or anything else that sounds deceptively simple but cannot be copied

    so you listen and you go hahaha ive got a general midi soundset, a big reverb and some distorted guitar arpeggios, i can totally do summoning

    but you can not

    because they have Magic and you do not and thats just the way the world works
