    One of the oldest (yet most effective) ways to get some forum interaction going.... "What are you listening to today?"

    Provide a sample link if easy to find, but don't let that stop you from posting. I just want to hear from you!

    I'll start with the latest 2020 release from The Pineapple Thief, "Versions of The Truth", in preparation for their "Nothing But The Truth" livestream tomorrow April 22nd...

    Very nostalgic idea!
    My music tastes are a little more varied than they used to be. For example, I've been listening to some of the following almost ritualistically as they've been among my absolute favorites lately.

    Here's a couple:

    MANTICORA - Katana - The Moths and the Dragonflies / Katana - Mud
    DYNAZTY - Threading the Needle
    CREYE - Broken Highway
    FEAR FACTORY - Disruptor
    TIM FEEHAN - Look Before You Leap*

    *Always gotta mix some 80s music in there too...
    Edit: Woops my bad, that's from 1990. :confused:

    I've been running up and down Erra's discography for days (the new disc is an absolute monster). Also I found Spiritbox earlier this year and wow am I excited for what they put out.

    Actually lately I'm finding a ton of prog/tech in metalcore and just bathing in it. Crystal Lake, from Japan, has blown me away with their particular brand of technical metalcore. Can't get enough of these folks.





    A new friend also got me into Architects, and their new album is an excellent blend of drama, emotion, and technicality. Every tune on this album has a poppy/bop swing feel that's kinda different in metal but I dig it.

    Still sad about the Shattered Skies cancellation, but soothing my woes with their music.

    Decided to approach my research backlog today. Started with this uh...mushroom/slug themed blackened progressive death metal outfit...and they're quite badass it turns out.

    Enjoyed the Erra's music and Spiritbox's video. Especially Erra. Thanks for posting as I had not previously heard anything from either of these two bands.

    Nice! It always brightens my day when I introduce someone to something they end up liking.

    Thanks for reminding me that I need to give that DGM disc more spins.

    Checked this out today finally. It's like DGM with grit. Very good stuff.
