Bands worth hearing thread

3. Nokturnal Mortum - Weltanschauung
It's kind of goofy. I don't really know how to describe it... dirty national socialist folk metal? Worth hearing at least once, imo.

1. Absurd - Der Fünfzehnjährige Krieg

Worthless re-recordings lacking the old spirit, also suffering from the same sickness as all other "Best-Of" recordings, i.e. a lack of artistic coherence.

2. Temnozor - Folkstorm of the azure nights

Very atmospheric, more melodic variant of Nokturnal Mortum, with some great use of traditional folk instruments. What "pagan" metal should be, the polar opposite of Finntroll / Korpiklaani.

These have stayed on my playlists since I got them. The albums are up there with the best of last 10 years of Burzum and Graveland, but not the ones before. I think earlier in this topic, or another one, both got more extensive discussion/reviews.

Some albums I've been listening to recently.

God Dethroned - The Christhunt
Coffins - Buried Death (I enjoy the Incantation meets Black Sabbath sound which this group has developed, but I seek material of theirs which is less polished)
S.O.D. - Speak English or Die
Urna - Iter Ad Lucem

thoughts?
No.

1. Absurd - Der Fünfzehnjährige Krieg
2. Temnozor - Folkstorm of the azure nights
3. Nokturnal Mortum - Weltanschauung
4. M8L8TH - By the wings of black

Any of these have at least 70% of Burzum or Graveland quality?

Haven't heard the nu-metal band #4 but the others are failures. The Absurd is like AC/DC with Bon Jovi on bass covering old Absurd; the other two are droning imitations that reflect aspirations toward failure.

S.O.D. - Speak English or Die

Well, it's better than anything Anthrax ever released. The actual songs have intensity and vitality but the joke tracks get old after a few spins. Combining hardcore and metal was always a good idea, but these seem to be musicians who weren't really into the serious side of either genre.

I like "Blut Und Krieg" a fair amount. Ive heard good things about some of the demos but I havent investigated further. They remind me of early Graveland, but with a bit more emphasis on repetition. Worth checking out.

Yes, "Blut und Krieg" is probably their magnum opus.

I concur on Blut und Krieg which is a good record if a bit uneven.

Here are links to a couple of tracks:-

Moonblood is very hit and miss, they have so much material but a lot of it is crap.

Blut & Krieg has a few great tracks but the rest is poor, it pretty much represents their whole career.

Their Nosferatu demo tape is actually the most consistently good piece of work from Moonblood i've heard.

bone awl

I happened to be in a local independant record/oddities shop a few weeks ago and I came upon this band's "Undying Glare" 7". It was only 2$, so I bought it. The whole release is only a little over 3 minutes, so its difficult for me to judge it accordingly. It reminds me of Akitsa deciding to form a grindcore project with someone from the 4 Skins or Oxymoron sharing the songwriting. I'll have to find more material by this band, as this 7" isnt revolutionary, but is an interesting mixture of which I have heard no other similar bands.
No.

Looking for thoughts on the following bands that have been recommended to me elsewhere:

Axis of Advance
Krallice
Urfaust
Negative Plane
Vinterland
Forest of Fog

Was also wondering, Im in love with Sacramentum's Far Away From the Sun, do any of their later albums approach its brilliance, or am I in for a disappointment?

Re: Bands worth hearing thread

Not familiar with any of the bands on your list except for Krallice. Here's a tip: I don't call them Krall-ass for nothing. Boring generic BM/post rock trendyness. Basically they tried to do what Weakling already did.
No.
