Autopsy's "Horrific Obsession" EP

If you heard "The Tomb Within" didn't think much of it, give this one a try. These 2 tracks are a truly intense ride.

Funeral doom. If you like Funeral Doom you will like it. This was Greg Anderson's and Steven O'Malley's first band. These two are better known for their other projects Sunn 0)), Khanate & Burning Witch - which aren't liked much here. Commonly refered to as 'hipster'.

Bunch of bands I found namedropped on Metal-Archives:
Parnassus


I actually missed this name the first time around. Been hearing a good amount of praise for them. Anyone have any information?
No.

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

I greatly appreciate their stuff, one of the best polish bands.

Just heard the Innumerable Forms "Dark Worship" demo that was uploaded to the audiofile section.

Very healthy death metal, it's a lot like Demigod playing death doom. Excellent stuff!

I only enjoyed one song off their demo tape which was "Let me living die" but even that one goes stale.  Halloweenish synths for most of the album, not very memorable guitaring, typical BM vocals.  Maybe the guy gets better on his full lengths, but the demo doesnt make me interested.

Actually speaking of symphonic black metal, a friend who's friend plays in Artep gave me their CD.  Im not the best critic for symphonic BM but these guys have much better reviews on metal-archives than Parnassus.

Criminal Element-Guilty As Charged

I thought this band was going to be the typical mindless drivel i'm all to used to hearing, but as far as new grindcore goes, they're pretty good.

These guys are pretty cool, if recall correctly. I listened to an early EP of theirs a few years back when I found out that Terrance Hobbes was involved with them for a while.

Anyway, the new GridLink is pretty awesome. It doesn't really have as much of a thrash sound as their debut, instead opting for more weird Discordance Axis-style dissonance and a bit of black metal tremolo guitar. Better than their debut, I think. It definitely has more of a varied texture to it.

Has anyone listen to the Mystérion - Sacral Chamber 2010 EP ? i find it quite inspired and well written while not mind blowing the melodies and the moods flow smoothly in a depressive/romantic/solemn manner... also the ambient interludes fit there very well.
World War I as the End of Civilization.
Tolkien as a Libertarian.
Sammaellofi:So for now on, when someone asks you what good metal is, don't say Slayer, Darkthrone, Morbid Angel, but instead say Hell Awaits, Transilvanian Hunger and Blessed are the Sick.

Grotesque is fairly good. The Abyss is apparently decent on their first album. Antaeus is also good on their first (Cut Your Flesh and Worship Satan). All of them are historically relevant B albums but far from essential listening.

Or see for yourself:
