Can you me some recommendations on better stuff?
This sounds more like a holy war bait than an honest question. If we're talking MDM bands, I enjoyed all of these a lot better than late COB:
And I don't even listen to a lot of MDM anymore. Plenty fantastic bands in other genres.
All these are shit, except Kalmah
wait let me take a breath
Rj, what do you listen to from other genres? I always like hearing other metal peoples' non-metal tastes
I'm not Rj, but I have been listening a lot less to metal recently, mostly due to that one band I discovered. I think they completely transformed my musical taste and I'm really struggling to go back to metal nowadays. They're called Cardiacs, and I can only recommend you to check them out. I feel like I must warn you in advance though, they are REALLY special.
Every single song is a gem, but if I had to recommend a few (without any specific listening order) it'd be:
- Fiery Gun Hand (absolutely fucked up rhythms and one of my all-time favourite guitar solo at 3:24)
- Jitterbug (the best and most trippy outro I've heard).
- Tarred and Feathered (the song I discovered the band with, took me some time to learn to appreciate it)
- She's Hiding Behind the Shed.
- Clean That Evil Mud Out of Your Soul (quite a funny intro)
- Dog Like Sparky.
- Mare's Nest.
- A Horse's Tail.
Just to name a few of them, but as I said, I find every single of their songs to be a whole musical universe on its own. Haven't been able to listen to anything else than Cardiacs and its members' side projects (which are quite similar, albeit far less great). Let me know what you think of it if you ever give them a try.
I was mainly talking about other (sub)genres of metal, this is ultimatemetal forums after all. In terms of non-metal music here's some great stuff I've discovered (for myself, so some big names there) in the last couple years:
world/ethnic/folk: Bokante, Catrin Finch & Seckou Keita, Flook, Silly Wizard
blues/old-school rnb: Lianne La Havas (♥♥♥), Lee Fields, Livin' Blues
ambient/electronic: Shpongle, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Lemon Jelly
jazzy stuff: Snarky Puppy (what a fucking band!), Free Radicals (these ones), Jan Johansson, plus a bunch of classics like Brubeck, Yusef Lateef, Ellington, etc.
vaguely rock music: Dire Straits, Marillion, Porcupine Tree, The Cranberries, R.E.M., Radiohead
the most random genres: Cornelius, The Sugarcubes, London Grammar, Joanna Newsom, J Dilla
a big bunch of classical composers
a big bunch of russian bands cause im russian
So all in all, I can't be arsed to listen to the last few COB albums again and again in hope of finding something truly remarkable just because they were once my favorite band
What are your favorite russian bands? I like the language a lot.
The best Russian bands are Ленинград, Little Big, Любэ, Кукрыниксы.
my absolute favorites would be Аквариум and Кино. Other classics from the same period (80s-90s): Nautilus Pompilius, Крематорий, ДДТ. Король и Шут used to be a very good melody-oriented horror-punk/folk band. Тролль Гнёт Ель is an awesome folk/folk-metal band of Nordic variety. Earlyish Сплин was great if a bit more mainstream. Some less known bands I like: S.P.O.R.T. (good luck googling that ), Запрещённые Барабанщики, Громыка, Optimystica Orchestra, Отава Ё, Краснознаменная дивизия имени моей бабушки, Billy's Band.
Don't you like Aria? Best King of the Roads OST
they're more toward power metal, which I don't really like, but yeah, they do have some great NWOBHM tunes.
I did forget Отава Ё, they're great indeed.
Alexi Laiho passed away.
Were they able to finish recording the new album before he passed? will that ever get to see the light of day?
They finished three songs and a video.
" will that ever get to see the light of day? "
its great that we at least get 3 songs but what about the rest of the album?
Dude what is wrong with you?
Only 3 songs were recorded, not a full album.
Nothing is wrong with me, im just as devastated as everyone else here. I just think it would be a gigantic massive heart breaking shame if the last material he wrote that were actually completed songs will never be heard. Dont you? who knows what gems he could have written that will never be able to touch or inspire people. When an amazing musician passes your always left wondering what else could they have come up with. Usually they only have riffs or ideas but almost never full albums. Dont you think it would be a beautiful parting gift to the fans that have followed his entire career to have the full album?
