I think Audiofile should live,

Yes, I would appreciate if the Audiofile part is kept whatever the overall decision is as it serves its function and I'm sure more people will take advantage of it as the site grows.

Metal / Re: Sacramentum - Far Away From the Sun

Not sure if that Dawn album is holding up now. Some of it does seem way too repetitive. But I really enjoy the epic feeling of the last track. I think it's good for an occasional listen.

Don't miss out on the second Sacramentum album Coming of Chaos. This is another album that you can keep coming back to for years without it getting boring. It's a bit of a different style to the first album with more death metal and speed metal thrown in the mix but that was probably a good idea when you've already hit gold with your debut. Another A class album.

This album has already leaked: http://www.bunalti.com/?p=294725

Good start for 2014! Black/death metal with some serious balls.

I think the 'obvious' recommendation after one has listened to Sacramentum is usually Slaughtersun by Dawn, which plays around with much of the same style.

I recently gave Slaughtersun a listen after it was mentioned on the news section that this was the band's apex and it I'm really impressed with it. I always thought the first album was decent but I now have a lot more respect for this band after heaing this epic release. Not as good as Sacramentum but way better than Dissection in terms of melodic black metal.

No problem. Wasn't hard to find at all.

Metal / Profanatica - Thy Kingdom Cum
« on: December 09, 2013, 05:50:45 PM »
This album has been added to the Profanatica audiofile thread for those who enjoy filthy blasphemous metal.

I've only given it a couple of spins but it's certainly a hellish listen and another very creative album for the band. Liking it so far!

As a side note, the Burzum album isn't metal. So how can that be included?

Dead Can Dance and Lord Wind made it into last years best of because they were metal in spirit.

23
I reckon these ones should make it:

Summoning - Old Mornings Dawn
Imprecation - Satanae Tenebris Infinita
Satan - Life Sentence
Von - Dark Gods, Seven Billion Slaves
Scalpel - Sorrow and Skin
Birth A.D. - I Blame You
Burzum - Sl Austan, Mni Vestan

I think these are good too but not sure if they should make the list:

Centurian - Contra Rationem
Warbeast - Destroy
Disfigurement Soul Rot

And these I haven't heard yet but judging from the reviews on this site they're probably worth considering:

Profanatica - Thy Kingdom Cum
Condor - Nadia
Witchblood - Blood and the Elements

Metal / Re: What Band are you listening today?
« on: November 15, 2013, 11:22:42 AM »
Today I listend to:

Napalm Death - Harmony Corruption


You're right, this album is a complete bore. Try Utopia Banished instead. It's a lot more exciting.

I kept getting this too on my 4shared account with other bands like Death, Hypocrisy, Pentagram, Kataklysm and Atheist. Once you remove the item your account goes back to normal in about a week. After 3 complaints your links go down from public access permanently but they don't stop you from opening up another account.

Handy tool for checking out bands discographies and line-up information. Don't use it for much else though.

Got 'em, except Metallica and the Doors for the reasons mentioned elsewhere. If you see any others, or ones that are pointing to anus.com links instead of here, please let me know.

Nearly everything that's after Ceremonium alphabetically is pointing to anus.com apart from an odd few.

King Crimson MP3s



"One of the three elements -- heavy rock, soundtracks, and heavy progressive rock -- that formed heavy metal and influenced its subsequent generations, King Crimson created early progressive rock that emphasizes pattern over appearance."

Interzone / Re: Are downloadable MP3s still relevant?
« on: October 05, 2013, 02:18:32 PM »
It's the hunt for mp3s that is an inconvenience. Finding a download that hasn't been deleted, isn't in a useless format like .wma, isn't password protected, isn't missing files, isn't a low bitrate, isn't hosted on a Russian site, etc. is a pain in the ass.  Also, transferring mp3s between various devices is a tedious process

With spotify I just type in what a want to listen to and it streams instantly.

I think the audiofile eliminates "the hunt" for getting the MP3s for the essential metal releases. And as for transferring between devices, I always make sure I use devices that don't have any in-built software so it's as easy as copy and paste. You can then easily throw them on friend's hard drives too.
