Title: Album of the week (theis edition)
Post by: theis on Nov 04, 2011, 09:57 PM
Okay, so I decided to join in on this.

Mainly because I just discovered this balls-to-the-wall kickass album.

I finally took the time to listen through this little bad boy. Really energetic sludge band. I've been into a lot of different sludge bands recently, so this was perfect for me right now. I'll definitely spin this more than once.

Genre: "Avant-garde/Jazz/Drone/guy with a sax"

Almost all of these tracks were recorded in one take with very little overdubbing. Most of the time when you're hearing 3-4 instruments (including percussion) it's just one guy on the sax, using an arrangement of microphones = mindblowing stuff.

Enjoy.

I didn't get all the way through it. It was a bit abstract for my taste.

Oh okay...fair enough.

If you ever decide to give it a second chance then wait till it's dark and listen to it with headphones. It creates a great mood.

Hell yeah! Especially Kvelertak and Intronaut. The first song from the new Kylesa was a little underwhelming, but still looking forward to hearing the whole thing.

Btw Mark, you should also check out that Hatesphere album. One of the few (current) great metal bands from Denmark. I think you'll dig it.

Here's a taste (awesome video too):

Hatesphere - To The Nines - UNCENSORED VERSION (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaAqrbmvbnU#ws)

speaking of Intronaut, how was the Meshuggah show brights? must've been one hell of a night with Intronaut and Animals As Leaders
Title: Re: Album of the week (theis edition)
Post by: bright lights, big city on Mar 07, 2013, 05:17 PM
I dig that Hatesphere song. Gonna DL their shit now.

Meshuggah fucking destroyed. Animals as Leaders was good as usual, and I missed like half of Intronaut since my friend was late. But jesus, seeing Meshuggah was incredible, glad I finally saw them. Would've been really interesting if they still had the singer replaced with a blow up doll or cardboard cut-out though, haha.


And sadly I missed out on BTBAM a few days before that. But they usually come around 2-3 times a year, so I'll get em next time.

Post by: black coffee on Mar 07, 2013, 06:17 PM
Theres always multiple chances to see an American band if you're American I suppose ;)

Good to hear that Jens was back for mic duty and it was an awesome show, I am also looking forward to seeing these guys in late April / early May. My first and thus far only Meshuggah concert was in 2008, I went alone cause my concert-buddy was sick, and I got high at the show... not really the type of concert to witness paranoid, but it worked fairly well. ^^

sry for the off topic talk. East Of The Wall is a good band, I remember listening to their first album Farmer's Almanac a lot but lost track of this band. Gonna listen to The Apologist.

I was expecting to hate this. Usually bands like this have unbearable vocals, and that's where I draw the line... But this was really very good!

both bands played very tightly live, was a bit afraid because king woman sounds like a deaf person screaming in some live vids and true widow has been known to be off key as hell but fuck they sounded incredibly massive

went to the concert alone, what a great experience just listening to great music with a nice beer in your hand and no social expectations

Agreed. Unfortunately i just made it in the door toward the end of the king woman set, but they sounded great. True Widow were definitely singing off key at times. That's kinda unfortunate, but holy fuck, experiencing sunday driver and jackyl live was mindblowing.
Chelsea Wolfe put on a great show too, the sound was pretty muddy though which bummed me out.

Sorry for hijacking your thread, Theis.

It'll definitely be in my playlist on friday. Unfortunately, Amenra haven't really done it for me in the past, and listening to this new song makes me think they probably won't this time either. But I have to give it a go. The style is right up my alley, i don't know why i don't love these guys.

I like it more than their previous albums.

There's something absurdly intense about their sound. I'm weirdly drawn by it.

Both their albums are worth checking out.

We have a strong black metal and death metal scene at the moment. I don't know if you're into that, but I think you'd dig Slaegt. It's very melodic and catchy...kinda like Kvelertak, but more in the veins of classic rock mixed with black metal.

Not really into black- nor death metal, usually. Everything you posted now sounds pretty good though. We'll see if some of them stick.

I only gave it one listen thus far. Sounds solid, though it didn't exactly blow my mind. I think it will be a grower though.
