Here are the metal albums I listened to this year that I really liked; mostly Atmospheric Black Metal:
...
Alcest - Shelter

I love Shelter but I would say it's pure shoegaze now, there is nothing remotely metallic about it.

I've been enjoying Electric Wizard's Dopethrone. I'd previously tried to get into it and the insane heaviness/ claustrophobia of it actually made me a little nauseous. For some reason I enjoy it much more now.

Madness of Sorrow, goth rock from Italy...

Is this the famous Italian fashion I hear about?  :P

Have you tried "Dopesmoker" by Sleep?

Yes. I like it a lot. Naturally though I listen more often to Holy Mountain.

They're still around?  Will wonders never cease?

I was amazed a few weeks ago when I saw that Saxon was the opening act for Judas Priest!

I sang "Future World" karaoke at the last New Year's party. I dare say I killed it.

I've been listening to Kvelertak lately. It is a Norwegian band combining HC and some BM elements. I haven't heard that kind of mix before.

I ended up buying the new Lamb of God album, VII: Sturm und Drang. I'm not sure why I keep an eye on these guys, as I don't really like most of their guitar riffs, and I don't particularly care for Blythe's vocals (which seem repetitive and lacking in variety--though perhaps that has to do with not being a big fan of that vocal style generally). Maybe it's because I enjoyed their DVDs. Or maybe because you can't visit a metal news site and not see stories about them all the time. I dunno.

Anyway, so I don't think the new album is too bad. I guess if I liked the style of music  in general more I'd probably think it was pretty good. There's still repetition, at least to my ears, but they do seem like they want to try to range out... very slightly anyway. In this particular case, Randy does some clean vocals, and there are guest vocals by two other people, which adds at least a bit of variety to the music. People seem pretty evenly divided on the single Overlord, but it's probably my favorite song by them at this point. I also find myself hitting 'back' when 512 ends so that I can listen to it a second time.

I remember when their first album, Ashes of the Wake, came out.  My friend and guitarist of the band I was in purchased it and I remember we listened to it once in the car on a long road trip.  My first impressions were that this was one of the worst mixed albums I have ever heard.  A kid could do better.  However, I thought there was some real genius behind what they were doing.  I went to see them in concert and they played with an intensity I rarely saw and the people who were die hard fans definitely bought into that.  I haven't really listened to them for years, but I'll give the new single a listen.

Does this mean they don't believe that gays exist or are they merely expressing their joy of theism?  :D

If I'm not mistaken, queercore is actually more connected to post-hardcore, which is a punk subgenre.  And it is a mostly young people scene.

81   Obsequiae - Aria Of Vernal Tombs (United States, black)

+1

I love both of their albums. A lot of black metal bands take influence from medieval music but with Obsequiae it's much more thorough and profound. Some of the melodies reminded me immediately of Dufay or Machaut.

Anyone here a fan of Within Temptation? They're symphonic metal band from the Netherlands, although their latest album has less of the symphonic quality that they are known for. They are one of the few newer bands that I really enjoy.

I like Within Temptation well enough, even though Sharon's voice is a bit weaker than I'd like. Together with Nightwish, Epica, Lacuna Coil and Delain, they make a sizeable chunk of my music library. :)

I've never heard of Within Temptation, but if they belong on a list including Nightwish and Lacuna Coil they must be pretty horrid.

Now, Obsequiae is an awesome band.

Yes, we know what kind of metal you like. Eh, whatever. As long as I don't have to listen, they can growl themselves hoarse to their hearts' content.

Well, I admit that the golden age is long over, being between the late 80's and around 2006. That being said, some quality rock music is still being made. There's just no longer a center of gravity in the genre anymore to push it as a whole.

You have the wrong decades for the "golden age". Try 60s and 70s.

Rock and Roll is the devil's music. If you play it backwards, you can hear satanic chanting.

And if you go see him in concert, it still sounds out of key.

Oh crap, no.  By no means a great bass player but he played on on a few albums I absolutely love, e.g. Holy Diver, Rainbow: Rising. RIP
