Just finished listening to Disembowelment - Transcendence into the Peripheral

Can anybody recommend any of their other works?

Gorefest - False

Too bad they dropped the ball on "Erase" which is absolutely terrible.

In addition to Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame, Oath Bound definitely deserves a mention. Land of the Dead is an amazing song.

Many people I meet claim they like Meshuggah for the "insane" technicality. Not only does the technicality serve no purpose in song construction, I'm pretty sure those people still just like 'em for their "INTENSE RHYTMIK BR00TALITY" which really is just a slightly more percussive version of Mudvayne.

Pink Frothy AIDS and Meshuggah should rank pretty high in "Metal's most boring achievments".

This being said, technicality is thoroughly useless in this situation. People like them actually for their aesthetic only, and are not critical enough to look at their compositional skills. Technicality does not equate awesomeness.

Then, we have Obliveon. The difference in composition is pretty clear.

i suppose Supuraton or SUP could be considered cybermetal. It isn't totally bad either, there are some interesting moments (on The Cube) albeit the clean vocals make me cringe.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Far away from the Sun. That album reignites passion and makes for a totally exceptional listening experience.

Creepmime is really good.

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.

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.

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.
