Went to Brutal Assault in Czechia, saw a ton of bands there. Emperor, Swans, Boris, Phurpa, Wolves in the Throne Room, Wrekmeister Harmonies, Zhrine, Furia, Mayhem, The Great Old Ones, Swallow The Sun, Ulcerate, Root, Tiamat, Nile, Possessed, Batushka, Cryptopsy, Decapitated, Fallujah, Gorguts, God Is An Astronaut, Oathbreaker, Metal Church, Teethgrinder, Opeth, Overkill, Svart Crown... and some more that I checked out while drinking super cheap beer in a fort. Highly recommended festival, if not for the fact that some friends of friends had their money and possessions robbed from their tents, I sprained my ankle while running from a huge storm and the fact that Wintersun and Igorrr were playing.
 



:music:

Yesss, good shit mang. Playing that Nihil album a lot too, ty.

Damn dude. That fest looks insane.

It was, first of all because it was in and around a fort. with wine, coffee and (craft) beer bars and ridiculous amounts of quality food stands all over, but there was also part of the fort used as a cinema (with proper movies too) and an 'ambient lodge' with drone, noise and (dark) ambient acts playing while you could lay on couches. There were also a few ("secret") corridors inside the fort you could walk through, some that had art exhibitions too. There was also a nice small river next to the campsite, so we could just dive in there every morning if we were able to. 

 

Also it was like an hour drive from the ossuary in Kutna Hora, the most kvlt metal approved place to visit, so we also went to that on the way home. 

 

been curious about Wrekmeister Harmonies for a long time.

Yeah, never heard anything from them before, but it was really good live (as far as I can remember...), so I'll have to check out their stuff soon.

I went to Sedlec Ossuary a few months ago. It was the gnarliest. Then I went to Dačický and ate some wild boar goulash. It was proper.

I just listened to a full Pig Destroyer album (Book Burner) for the first time and I can't believe I didn't check this out sooner. fucking love it, satisfying my grind desires nicely. the drums are so clear and machinegun-precise.

i guess it passes as metal mostly because of vox, without them it is closer to my beloved mouthus and their textural noise than to any metal, but the vocals give it the same "off" feel that i like, like there are two different layers going in parallel and not quite settling with each other, and it's very interesting musically. somewhat similar to that gurgly stuff ivan posts in that sense.

Can anyone recommend metal similar to Inter Arma? I like my stuff to sound like a Lovecraftian monster rising from the sea.

 

Sumac might do you.

Aaron Turner's vision for Sumac is pretty interesting when compared/contrasted to Isis. more cerebral, more minimal, yet also more sludgy and raw. were you ever an Isis fan or am I remembering that wrong? 

 

edit: production on this last Sumac LP is stellar, such a big warm deep sound. it is flat-out ridiculous how many good albums Kurt Ballou has had a hand in producing.
