Sadistik Exekution  ;D

not that great of a band, but from what i have heard of their live antics, probably a great show.

1349 have some songs where they really show a potential to shine. their riffing borrows from death metal without affecting their overall sound that much.

on "Hellfire", only about 4-5 songs are of listenable quality. but those songs are well crafted, well written, and generally spirited. what 1349 needs to learn how to do is to evenly distribute their spirit throughout their albums. if you took the best tracks from all 3 albums and their demos/EPs, you would have one of the best albums of the past 5 years.

when i saw Averse Sefira open for 1349, they played right before Goatwhore. while AS were top notch, Goatwhore was and still is one of the lamest excuses of "black metal" i have ever heard. it basically takes black metal and adds in nu-metal passages, thereby making it not black metal anymore.

Been prowling message boards this week, seeing what people are listening to. Other than the obvious total garbage for morons (TGFM, examples: 36 Crazyfists, Cradle of Filth, Cannibal Corpse, Skinless, Ulver, Levi-athan, As I Lay Dying) there are some I haven't heard and would like a few words on from qualified sources before I dismiss them outright.

Are these bands NOT retarded or TGFM?

- Tulus
- Wolves in the Throne Room
- Hail of Bullets

Just to calibrate the answers of those who are replying, what do you think of the following?

- Summoning
- Dead Infection
- Necrophagist

Necrophagist is terrible, i think theres been enough time wasted on them.

Summoning are quite good, although sometimes they seem a bit awkward in introducing different layers into their songs. all in all, i really have enjoyed all of their material i have heard. Minas Morgul is my favorite so far.

Wolves In The Throne Room frustrate me. allow me to explain. on their new album Two Hunters, there is a track "I Will Lay Down..." (some long title) of which the first 5 or so minutes are just completely uninteresting. then at the 6 minute mark, it hits an ambient passage, which segways into a buildup of drums and droning guitar, and then it explodes in blasting fury after about 2 minutes. it is excellent usage of dynamics, and the rest of the song (the remaining 10 minutes) is well structured. the song is 18 minutes, of which only 12 is worth listening to. they shouldve just began the song with the ambient passage, and left out the 5 minutes of zzzz.

if WITTR would learn to "trim the fat", so to speak, i think that they would be a much better band.

the only thing remotely good about this band is their logo. fuck, what a mess.

if anyone is interested in a good laugh, here is the site where that Cryptopsy image was made from.

All DSO has done with their last few releases is take the worst ideas from Gorguts and Blut Aus Nord and turn them even worse.

While i believe there is nothing wrong with having some parts in songs which have a "groove", so to speak, bands who center themselves around this concept are more often than not rock bands masquerading as metal.

yeahhhh man, kick back and listen to the fuckin groooooves man.

or how about not? assholes.

off topic, but i used to go to school where Profanatica formed. pretty cool.

the problem with DSO, as you mentioned onan, is not their lack of technique. they have instrumental talent in droves. what they are missing is the "feeling" in the music.

when i tried listening to Si Monvmentvm, it just whisked by me as if i were riding in a car looking out the window at the trees. nothing really stood out, or made me go "wow that was unexpected/interesting". i honestly listened to the album through about 3 times and the only things i vaguely remembered were Sola Fide I and II. for an album that was 70+ minutes, me remembering only about 11 minutes worth says something about DSO's songwriting "skills".

DSO is extremely pretentious. or at least thats how they come off, with their needless 8+ minute displays of noodling.

if youre going to write a relatively long song, youd better be able to write something at least a little cohesive.

I love the guy who did the image, he constantly trolls Flo Mournier on the Cryptopsy forums.

yeah, ive read some of his trollings. very amusing.

oh and have you guys seen the site where those images come from? quite a laughfest there as well.

Deathspell Omega has to be some of the most noodly, directionless cut and paste hogwash ive ever had the displeasure to hear.

the thing which most draws me to Averse Sefira (on Battles Clarion), is their guitar parts. something about them just sounds so perverse, and evil. the way that they clash with the blasting drums invokes the image of an apocalyptic end. really, i dont see how people could find this band boring.
