Bands worth hearing thread

Ah i didnt think you actually appreciated the album, your previous post just seemed to undermine Conqueror and just call it plain foolish.  It is definenlty a powerful album, and it comes to me as the most extreme at the moment.  Revenge of course is in the same vein and a great continuation of Conqueror.

Appalling Spawn - Freedom, Hope and Fury
Lykathea Aflame - Elvenefris

They're essentially the same band but the albums are pretty different

Any thoughts on Pitch Shifter - Industrial?

I know the band went on to become pederasts, but I've heard several comparisons between this album and early Godflesh, namely Streetcleaner.

Haven't heard the other one you mentioned, but this one's a mess. Very pretty, sure. It would make great background music for feeding African orphans or making love to your fat girlfriend with lit candles in a $100k suburban home. But it's completely disorganized, and all the pretty parts are just sprinkled in randomly.

last albums from Avenger, Destroying Divinity, Heaving Earth, Brutally Deceased, Psychotic Despair are something that I would recommend from .cz instead of Lykathea Aflame...

Stylistic comparisons are apt, but Industrial is a much more straightforward view. I would compare it to NIN if NIN was a grindcore band instead of a groovy, hooky, jazzy pop-indust band. Submit is the best from Pitchshifter, and it's still very basic but very deliciously angry.

Some random recommendations I will share in no particular order as repayment for my "sins" in the "other" thread tonight:

Fanisk, Zhurong, Enemite, Liers in Wait & Ras Algethi.

Mentioning all of these for either unique aesthetic or structural explorations of the Metal genre.

I am in the process of exploring the 90s Doom Metal genre which is very over-looked in these parts, I will report back when I've had the chance to absorb some of the artists in more depth!

Fanisk is shit. Can't tell you much about the others; though I've heard good things about Ras Algethi.
No.

Having reviewed the thread, baby Jesus is most definitely weeping at this point.

WTF! Don't "hear about" Ras Algethi for one second longer. HEAR it. As in, make it the very next album you look into...

The best way to recommend a band is to upload them to the audiofile.

Pretty sure all of those barring Zhurong are uploading. Thanks for the heads up.

I will wholeheartedly support the...support of Ras Algethi - monumentally atmospheric doom. And I dislike doom.

Re: Bands worth hearing thread
January 25, 2011, 05:11:28 AM
Allrighty, so any suggestions for a Ras Algethi work to start out on?

Also, seeking opinions on some bands:

Lutemkrat
Gonkulator
Miasmal
The Accused
Denial Fiend
No.
