I love Seventth Son, partly because it's a bit of a weird outlier in terms of the concept album vibe and the heavy synth use and also because I have nostalgic memories of borrowing the CD from my library as a young teenager and getting my dad to burn a copy for me. Pretty out-there cover art as well.

 

Also, what a tune; the little medieval outro is just the icing on the cake:

the di'anno albums have the most special place in my heart actually, tho the discography is indeed quite consistent up to said seventh son. tbqh i just never really liked bruce's voice... sacrilege i know. he was ok in samson tho.

 

speaking of krallice, they dropped quite some new tracks on their recent (first) US tour, conveniently assembled by yours truly:

The new Wormrot is pretty awesome, I don't even listen to that much grind anymore but I'll definitely revist this.

Yeah, those Old Funeral videos are funny. There was an additional clip uploaded originally that was removed after a couple of days, featuring them hanging out around their hometown in 1989 or whatever. Random friends popping up, stupid comments, a total time machine clip. Everyone looked soooo 80s. In a bad way.

I've been caning the latest Haken album lately. Not strictly metal, but they do love a good downtuned riff every now and then.

 

Love the unexpected Neurosis section at around 10:45 in this track:

 

and the unapologetic 80s prog sound of this track..

Really like that design/album art. Almost looks like the box of an old Atari game or something. Proper old-school Dream Theater vibes at 5.30 or so onwards for sure.

Gatecreeper - Sonoran Deprevation:

been really enjoying the new Gatecreeper, not a groundbreaking album by any stretch of the imagination but still a really well put together mix of genres. Suffers from pretty much all the flaws of modern metal production but it is what it is

lol nice

 

there's something I really love about those ridiculous, nonsensical/atonal walking guitar riffs in death metal

Ulcerate - Shrines of Paralysis:

 

yeah it's really good, sounding pretty much like previous efforts (which is ok in my book) albeit with a bit more blatant emo parts. what i really appreciate about this band is how they reward your attention yet don't demand it. if you listen closely lots of detail and complexity reveal themselves yet because of their limited palette the music is also really enjoyable as a monolithic blur just passing by / over you. great stuff for working out.

The new Urfaust is great, the new Deathspell Omega is the best thing ever in the history of anything.

Really need to check those both, that new Urfaust album is really promising from what I've heard.

 

I'm finally trawling through Aluk Todolo's discography today, saw them live years ago when they were opening for Sunn. Turns out their studio work is equally good.

ya, it's really neat! deffo better than paraclit and the last few eps. less athmospheric gheyness and awkward "groove-parts", more unholy blasty fuckness! also awesome production, works great as hair dryer! is that even aspa back there?! vokills sound kinda different...
