This is a 3-3.5, but I'm giving it the benefit right now. There's better black metal out there Sea.
Digging: Thy Catafalque - Meta
good review, i'll pos. i think i might prefer their demo to this album by a small margin but they slay pretty hard regardless.
also at xeno, this band is making waves everywhere, far from being a sputnik band.
Gotta check this out. Good writing dude, deathwish tweeted about it.
Nice review, didn't know of these guys
Digging: Jimmy Eat World - Integrity Blues
Album Rating: 2.5

Album Rating: 2.0
There it is, and I'm glad you sent it Kyle's way as well.
Overall, metal is rather suck-y so far this year.

Great review Sea. Upon listening to this I also felt there were some screamo elements to be found, nice to see I wasn't the only one thinking that.
thanks! still not sure if it's just me being metal-ly ignorant haha, but I definitely hear some Gospel in there, as well as some more post-rock-y stuff like Fall of Boss Koala if anyone else can relate.
xeno: had this conversation with some guy in my EITS review, but in general I think it's beneficial when judging music
to have some sort of context to place it in genre-wise... I understand how/why some people think otherwise though,
and it's really no use arguing over : ) You're right though, I keep saying it and I'll just shut up haha. No hard feelings?
So.... you don't know much about metal. I wish I had known that earlier.
Digging: Testament - The Brotherhood of the Snake
Album Rating: 2.5
just listened to a couple songs. okay sounds pretty nice
too late now Trey, the deed is done and there's no going back! (or at least I hope that's how it works haha)
and yeah you sorta did xeno but it's ok I forgive ya haha it's a legit complaint and you're never a dick, really
Oh, there's definitely going back ;) Albums can be dropped as quick as they come up... but that's not what I was alluding to doing -- joking or otherwise.
Edit: really, I don't know what I was getting at with that comment. Just some smart ass to start my day ;)
