this cover art gives me a huge boner

 

I too appreciate the Rubenesque pagan ladies adoring the cover- not just in an aesthetically erection-inducing way but the style and colors overall. :emotawesomepm9: It's like the work of Mucha with a darker vibe.

 

Artist is John Dyer Baizley, frontman of that band. His site is here.

I've been listening to Aereogramme recently; I decided to finally check them out after enjoying the awesome Isis/Aereogramme split:

 

 

They're a bit emo sounding but I think the melodic vocals are a nice touch when the music gets heavy.

Yeah, this is very 1990s/early 2000s indie emo. Kinda leaves me wanting to listen to The Promise Ring or Mineral more than anything I'd consider metal, though.

 

Oh shit just heard the last bit, yeah it's kinda skramzy too. But not something I'd call metal.

Yeah they're pretty mellow most of the time. I love the heavy parts though. I agree, not exactly metal but definitely worth checking out, imo.

more pentatonic wanking with great hipster vocals...

Black Tusk (fairly newcomers to the scene, but damn I love what these guys have put out)

Kylesa (fuck yeah two drummers!)

High On Fire (Matt Pike's gravelly growl is perfect for the music)

A Storm Of Light (less vocals, more atmospheric doom, fans of Isis should check these guys)

Stonebride (lesser mentioned but great stuff)

Grey Daturas (dark, noisy doom, pretty much instrumental)

 

I'll have to plug in my external HD tomorrow and report back with some lesser known reccomendations...

Katatonia might be up your alley. I like Last Fair Deal Gone Down the most. It has a very gloomy vibe so I don't listen to it much though.

Haha, I always associate Katatonia with Paradise Lost; simply because a friend of mine loves both bands and always plays both to me every time we have a listening session.

Yah I see, or hear rather, the similarities. I associated Katatonia with Opeth because of Bloodbath and Mike being friends w/ them.

I saw Baroness open for Isis at Manning Bar last time they were here (last time ever, now). I made a mental note to look into them but never got round to it.

 

it did piss me off though that some smelly stereotypical metalheads were up front and pseudo-moshing and headbanging throughout Baroness but promptly left when Isis came on. who even does that? it's like making a delicious sandwich, removing the crust and then eating the fucking crust.

I saw a bit of Baroness' set at Soundwave one time, but had to leave because the treble was so fucking loud! It's a shame because they're pretty great.

+ I'm glad nobody was moshing when I saw Isis that same day, I managed to get right up the front and enjoy them without meatheads jumping into me (the keyboard player had an Autechre sticker on his synth!). Meshuggah played almost immediately after them, however, and as soon as they hit the first note, everyone started moving so violently that I had to get out of there!

awesome, I didn't see that at Manning

 

I can handle a bit of moshing and jumping around but I'd rather not have scraggly beard and beer-breath in my face every two seconds. actually there was a lot of crowd wildness when I saw Pixies and most of the crazy ones were adolescent girls, so that was alright I guess :crazy:

      Hey guys.  Do you think I should make more stuff in this general vein, derivative as it is?  
       
      I don't post noises I make much, but I don't know, I could do more, if anyone but me enjoys it, or maybe just sees some potential.  
       

       
      ^dis is me
       
      Yeah, it sounds identical to the stuff I make on Reaktor sometimes, I don't know what's wrong with me. 
       
      yours in fuzz,

      was trying to find some posts somebody did a while ago about the crowdfunding they did because Mats needed an urgent hearing treatment... btw did any wattmer backed up this kickstarter?

      no luck, i thought it was in one of the Zappa threads but i just can't find it... anyway these guys don't have their own thread and surely they deserve it so here it is...
       
      they have a new website and every order is free shipping worldwide, which is a pretty fucking cool thing to do... although i'm having a hard time finding out how to select between vinyl and cd, can't find the option anywhere, if anyone finds it out i would appreciate it...

      We've all heard the rumors.
      We all wish it hadn't been Hudson Mohawke.
      Was Aaron Funk aka Venetian Snares an extra in the series? Let's settle this right here and right now.

      Is this the same man:
