Metal / Re: Necrophagist
« on: August 06, 2009, 12:11:52 PM »
Although guitarists like Suicmez are awfully dextrous, they can't write music. They think that the disorganized sound will somehow organize itself in their own minds. It doesn't.

Same think happened with Cryptopsy as soon as Salvo entered the picture. 2 problems there. They became an overly technical piece of crap, no real direction I could detect. 2nd, they lost Lord Worm.

Anyways, Necrophagist just seems to spew out incredible material, but it never takes me anywhere. It never develops, because disorganization prevents any of the riffs from creating a mood.

There is no emotion or power in those chords. Just the band's overwhelming technicality.

Metal / Re: Bands worth hearing thread

I made a lame response regarding NYBM band Imperial Triumphant earlier. Well here's my point of view. It's good to hear people generating non-commercial metal, but they rip off other bands (can hear some Immortal), which isn't the bad part.

But they do not do it well. They are relatively young however. I think they could fix these problems by trying to make music without having genre limit it. They try too hard to be the music, as opposed to the music being them.

In short, stop trying to BE Black Metal. Just have your own concepts guide the way.

Here's a link:


May be a bit hard to hear. They have MP3's somewhere though.

Need to Control and The Coming of Chaos. Totally different albums and moods, but each excellent releases.

What is so annoying about this deadzone of music are those fans. Those that listen to As I Lay Dying etc. They are so darn stubborn, "Listen to that breakdown! Death metal can suck it's cock!"
I fucking hate those fans. Should be "racked" which includes either being made to listen to the wondrous Asphyx album, or literally being sentenced to well-deserved torture.

This album was just too groove influenced and slow to be on the same level their other releases were. The music was very lagging and fundamentally degenerated on this album.

Metal / Re: Death Metal bands that succumbed to The Norming

Now they have taken the BR00TAL stance which is slowly infecting the Death Metal genre.

I think that battle was lost a long time ago, bro..

Eh, regardless, it still sucks.

Metal / Re: Can metal music be subtle?
« on: February 26, 2009, 10:13:10 PM »
Metal is special in that there are those that are subtle, and those that are not.

Usually, the latter is littered with childish playing, characterized by breakneck speed riffing, and with no originality or quality of music.

Subtlety is key for many artists. Sometimes, using this subtlety, they unleash "the furious metal monster that eternally gnaws on human flesh" better than any band like the br00tal Cannibal Kiwi (Corpse).

In terms of subtlety, often there are bands that a have a progressive finesse which is commendable. Personally, Death's Human comes to mind. Both the lyrical content and musical quality are stellar, and this is a prime example of what I think is subtlety as opposed to their later, overrated works.

Interzone / Re: It's cool to be out of touch

I live in an metropolitan area, and almost every single pitiful waste of flesh and bones has one of those stupid phones.

Also, they keep on making fun of me when I listen to more stimulating music.
Continuing on my post, I do have a cell-phone, which is absolute junk, and I like it that way. I only make a call when it is essential.

I listened to Therion's Of Darkness album. It had some crushingly slow sections.

I recommend it to all if you do not have it. It is far superior to their later material, which I hate with an undying passion.

Metal / Re: Are Nile any good?
« on: February 26, 2009, 09:44:59 PM »
Do you mean Sanders, razorfield? If so, I would be inclined to agree.

Kolias is a fantastic drummer, however, he doesn't rely on pointless blasting like Derek Roddy or that douchebag from Marduk. His work with Sickening Horror is notable.

As for Amongst..., if it's wearing on you, that's unfortunate. I still listen to that record often, and I got it 3 years ago. "Ramses-Bringer of War" has an excellent marching buildup, and the odd riffing on "The Howling of the Jinn" is wonderful. "Barra Edinazzu" is probably my favorite track, I believe in part because of the chanting growls. I know many people here do not enjoy Nile, but I count this album in my favorite amongst death metal.

Oh. Yes, I do mean Sanders, thank you for pointing that out.

I actually preferred the first version of The Howling of the Jinn, from the "In the Beginning" album. THAT, is nothing short of glorious.

Metal / Re: Why was there no German black metal movement
« on: February 26, 2009, 02:43:29 AM »
I guess Germany was too obsessed with the more traditional stylings of thrash?

I'm just making random guesses now.

I've been listening to Amongst the Catacombs for a while now... It's slowly gotten less entertaining.

This is the very band that will not live on after disbanding. Also, I feel that Kolias is much like another Akerfeldt, in that fanboys just can't praise them enough. (The latter royally sucks).

They are a joke that never retains its hilarious value. At this point it's simply *yawn*, next!

In short, they are boring and overpraised, partially because of convenient time they arrived as an X-TREEM band.
