Thanks, this is probably my 2nd favorite death metal album this year. What about you Captain?

Well since I consider new Ataxie to be dm[death/doom] this would actually fall into my top 4 so far. These here, in no particular order:

Gorguts
Ulcerate
Cerekloth
Ataraxie
[New Obliteration at the end of this year might fit here]
New Sacriphyx was good to[have you heard this?]
Krypts was ok but nothing too special


Other mentions:

Nails[haven't really delved into this and possibly may not, not sure
Zealotry[haven't even heard yet, is this good guys?]
Katalepsy[i think i rated this a 3 or something so it was whateve]
New Darkthrone was whatever imo
New carcass was lol whateve but no too terribly bad


Digging: Kangding Ray - Solens Arc

I need to hear the new Ataraxie for sure. And yeah, Zealotry and Nails both rule so get on them. Even though Nails is a lot more hardcore than dm there's an influence there for sure.

Cool will do. I'll probably check out Zealotry sometime tonight before I start recording.

Yeah do that. They have a nice Demilich/Demigod feel to them. Great stuff.

man this rules, and it's interesting that people are making a point out of the dissonance, I'm noticing quite a bit of harmony on this for death/doom

Digging: Thormenthor - Abstract Divinity

there are quite a few major chord progressions on this, moreso than lots of other dm.

not knocking that at all, it's great

dissonance is a common characteristic in dm, I'm not saying that's not present. but I'm saying they also incorporate quite a bit more harmony and consonance in their chord progressions/melodies than lots of other dm bands. do you not hear this

Yeah, they're a pretty 'easy-going' band when it comes to their transitions. For instance, when you listen to the opening minutes you can tell that they really took there time with it. It almost never feels rushed. True, there is some 'melody' and harmony in various moments but overall I get a strong straight-up dm vibe like early Cancer[loosely said though]. Also, remember both melody and dissonance are highly subjective and broad terms so tagging either of those doesn't say much when one is talking about specifics.

it's definitely death metal but I get a stronger sense of harmony and consonance at times, which is refreshing, and the album still manages to crush
