Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Disclosure:  I own Led Zeppelin III, it is not only the only Zep record I can dig, but it is indeed one of the greatest albums of all time!  However the key is Plant does more singing, a lot less wailing and moaning suggestively :)

I listen to Sabbath so it is not effeminate vocals that I dislike, it is just that it is a thin line between good effeminate male vocals and whining effeminate male vocals.  In my opinion, Robert Plant crosses the line too much, Ozzy straddles it just right.

I also dig singers with off-tempo cadence like Lou Reed and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, but it is equally a matter of subtle nuances that makes that kind of singing good or terrible.

stay blessed,
habte selassie

Last time I checked Wintersun was a Melodic Death Metal band but apparently they decided that their previous album was not epic enough.

I just caught myself thinking "Ain't my -----" as a response to something. As in, the phrase used by a band impersonating Metallica on the album Load in the song of the same name. Over 15 years later and I still have that phrase in my head? From that album? And aren't I missing the point the song was making? What's wrong with me? I'm scared...

I didn't do that song... I don't think any of my friends would have understood. I went with Iron Maiden's "Aces High" and also songs by Tom Jones and Roy Orbison.

I thought I'd heard all I needed to hear this year, but I was wrong  :angel: I have to add:

The Howling Void - The Womb Beyond the World

...to my top 10 albums from 2012. Some great funeral doom music.

I know you've been waiting all year for this. I won't make you wait any longer. Here are my ratings of albums released in 2012 (the ones I own anyway)...

Sheesh - I don't have any of those albums, and nothing at all by most of those bands. I'm much more comfortable in the symphonic end of the metal spectrum, particularly the female-fronted kind. The only thing I have to look forward to is whether Floor Janssen will become the next vocalist for Nightwish. And how long it will take Blind Guardian this time to bring out new material.

Favorite heavy albums of 2012:

Converge - All We Love We Leave Behind

Gaza - No Absolutes In Human Suffereing (not the most spiritually uplifting album ever, but jeez its heavy...)

And Im about to check up on the newest Kowloon Walled City album called Container Ships.

Honorable mentions:

The Chariot - One Wing

Old Man Gloom - No

Any newer bands that you're liking? I mean bands that have just begun putting out albums in the last, say, 7 years or less?  I have a few...

Acrassicauda - Iraqi thrash. They're supposed to have a new album coming this year, their first full length. Technically they've been together a decade, but their first real release was an EP in 2010.

Anhedonist - American death/doom. First full length came out in 2012.

Carach Angren - Dutch symphonic black metal. My new favorite band, I'm really digging the new release from last year, and also enjoy the past couple that I've heard on spotify. First EP was in 2005 but their first full length wasn't until 2008.

Havok - American thrash. I liked their debut (2009) the most, but I still have high hopes for future releases.

The Howling Void - American funeral doom. A bit repetitive at times, but very relaxing and enjoyable nonetheless. They released 3 albums in 4 years starting in 2009.

Lazarus A.D. - American thrash. Another thrash band that I liked the debut (2007) of the most but am still optimistic about.

Nekromantheon - Norwegian thrash metal. Pretty good stuff IMO. First EP was in 2007 and first album in 2010.

The Resurrection Sorrow - American stoner/heavy. Pretty good debut album in 2009, especially considering that I don't like much from this genre.

Wodensthrone - British black/folk. I haven't heard their first one from 2009 yet, but the album from last year was good.

The latest In This Moment album, Blood, is quite enjoyable. Much less metalcore than before, although the vocals still slide that way occasionally.

I mentioned them before, but my two favorite new bands at the moment are Alcest and Les Discrets from France. They are often described as a cross between shoegaze and black metal... sounds awkward but it works wonderfully.

I can't believe it took this long for me to start using Spotify. Over the past couple months I've heard more bands that I liked, who are new to me, than I had over the previous 10 years.

I left Spotify when they started charging. It was a resource hog anyway. I'm much happier with Last.fm.

New Megadeth vid. As horrible as you'd expect if you've heard the album. Though I have to say that Dave Mustaine playing the jerk (abusive?) Father was completely believable.

The chorus of that song isn't bad but it's not a Megadeth song.  The verses are atrocious.

The video was even worse.  A love story?  Come on.

I know this is sort of an obscure question, but can anyone think of songs in which you enjoy the rhythm under a solo more than the solo itself?  Or at least they fit so well together that you enjoy the rhythm as much as the solo?

I like a few tandems like that on Tourniquet's Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance album, but especially with En Hakkore (solo).

Anyone else?

I have been completely swamped with requests to give a mid-year list of what albums I like that have been released this year. It's insane. I kept putting it off, but now some are getting quite violent, so I will acquiesce and post a simple list. I hope this will placate ... well you know who you are! A more detailed list will arrive in December. Be calm and listen to metal.

Koldbrann - Vertigo (black)
October Falls - The Plague of a Coming Age (folk/doom/black)
Essence - Last Night of Solace (thrash)
Procession - To Reap Heavens Apart (doom)
Ade - Spartacus (death)
Abomnium - Coffinships (black)
October Tide - Tunnel of No Light (melodic doom/death)
Immolation - Kingdom of Conspiracy (death)
Inferior - Unsoiled (thrash)
Exeloume - Return of the Nephilim (thrash/death)
Agathodaimon - In Darkness (gothic/black)
Throne of Heresy - Realms of Desecration (death)
Intronaut - Habitual Levitations (progressive)
Sonic Reign - Monument in Black (black)
Lychgate - Lychgate (black)
Hela - Broken Cross (stoner/doom)

(All available on Spotify if you want to check any out)

We all have an El Guapo to face. Be brave, and fight like lions!

Form a 'brute squad' then!

I've been cycling through In Mourning's last two albums. Progressive melo-death in the same vein of Blackwater Park-era Opeth.


In Mourning - The Smoke


In Mourning - A Vow to Conquer the Ocean
