Quote from: The MolluskFound some great doom/sludge stuff this week so looking forward to getting stuck into that. Will report back with my top findings
Quote from: easytargetno, you shut up
Quote from: Dirty Boy on October 19, 2021, 02:05:42 PMI hope Celtic Frost's Monotheist and the Tryptykon albums were on your list. Tom G Warrior knows his onions as far as steamroller of doom riffage goes.
QuoteWhere do you lot find out about new releases and that? TheQuietus has a good monthly metal roundup that's pretty useful and easy to filter out the stuff you probably won't be interested in. Here's their top 20 albums from last year
Quote from: chutnut on October 19, 2021, 12:00:32 PMI'm surprised to hear At The Gates are back (haven't really listened to metal for anything other than nostalgic reasons for a long time), just checked out their recent video and agree it sounds horrible, music as well as his voice. With Fear I Kiss The Burning Darkness was one of my favourite albums for a while
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on October 19, 2021, 05:14:28 PMI wouldn't go so far as to say the Fear Factory album was shite, it's just that it was just another Fear Factory album, nothing more, nothing less, so it felt very underwhelming. You could could told me it was an unreleased album they made 20 years ago and I would have believed you. The drama surrounding the album was more interesting than the album itself.
Quote from: Magnum Valentino on October 19, 2021, 07:21:22 PMEach of their good albums sounds completely distinct. It's just the post-reunion stuff that all sounds the same because Dino has been writing everything on his own and has none of Raymond or Christian's input to help make it about more than "riffs and robots". I'm not having a go at you Beardo, but I think this is a misconception common among people who aren't fans of Fear Factory and they were one of my favourite bands for years and years and the band they were deserves defended.
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on October 19, 2021, 07:32:56 PMOh I'm A FF fan, I have a hat and everything, but it's been diminishing returns since Obsolete for me, there's been some good stuff since then but that was the last great album. When I say the new one could have been recorded 20 years ago I mean I'm not hearing anything new, no new ideas or anything, no evolution of any kind, just the same formula yet again.
Quote from: Magnum Valentino on October 19, 2021, 07:55:22 PMDigimortal falls within those 20 years and is a perfect example of an FF album that is not formulaic. Have you listened to it recently? It's full of sections with bass only, bass and keys, mid tempo stuff, lots of vocal harmonies, the stuff with the lad from Cypress Hill. It's also heavy as all fuck but let down somewhat by the compression on the sonic side.Take a track like Back the Fuck Up, or the spooky five-note bass breakdown in Byte Block. The difference in how most of the tracks start and where they end up. It's full of ideas. There's an underlying style there (the synco riffs/feet thing) and the lyrical themes reinforce that, but it's churlish to say Digimortal is of a piece with the formulaic FF of Mechanize onwards. On that new album you can hear the copy paste formula, but on Digimortal, you can hear a band.
QuoteIMO, obvz. And I'm glad you have an FF hat :-) you don't meet enough fans and I think they're the single most underated and influential band in modern metal

Quote from: JaDanketies on October 20, 2021, 11:56:02 AMSurprised to see you bunch of lefties haven't recommended post-black Empire of Love by Violet Cold. It's about gay rights! Definitely an innovative sound, and I thought post-black had been done to death by now. Resulted in very angry people in black metal facebook groups
Quote from: Famous Mortimer on October 20, 2021, 01:42:14 PMSounds like a bang-on main person, but...I just popped the first track on (from the link you shared) and it sounds like three genres being played at the same time - like GYBE and screamo and someone doing black metal riffs off to the side.
