|Muffins v. Indiana: New Favorites Since Joining Sputnik|
I know I'm just a newbie, but in just under 2 months I've found a lot of new music through what I've read on Sputnik. When I've been here long enough to have at least some credibility, I'll make a much better list then this one. For now, I thank the Sputnik community for allowing me such a great medium with which to find so much music that I probably wouldn't have found otherwise.
Ashes Against the Grain
It's a kind of folk/progressive sound meets black metal. I'm not used to hearing something like this, but I like it.
Call of the Wretched Sea
Excellent funeral doom. As said by another member of the site.
Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
Unique in it's delivery and even catchy. I'm going to look into more Burzum.
A Blaze in the Northern Sky
Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism
Above the Weeping World
|7||Septic Flesh |
Heavy as hell and Satanic in a way that both meets and breaks with the traditions of other black metal and death metal bands that have done similar topics. You're truly taken to a horrible and despicable place when you listen to this. Tom Gabriel Fischer delivers here.
|3,4,5,6 are all relatively well-known. the rest I agree you prolly would've never found without sputnik|
|lol ahab lol|
|Ugh, funeral doom|
|You're gonna love 1 even more,it's kinda worshipped here|
Communion is also great
|Yeah, I'm definitely warming up quickly to Agalloch. The Mantel is great too, I just need to listen to it a bit more. But I like the overall sound that Agalloch strives for and the fact that they achieve it pretty well. As for Septic Flesh, Sumerian Daemons is pretty good too.|
|To Urinetrouble, sure Ahab probably won't last too long, what with all the whale stuff, but Call of the Wretched Sea was good enough to keep me interested until the end. Nice atmosphere, riffs that invoke an image of the ocean, and a nice flow. |
|7 is the shit|
|7 is the shit|
Oh yes. Death metal meets symphonic arrangements that actually accompanies and compliments the guitars riffs well. Very refreshing and an exciting listen to those who are open to it.
|i know their singer |
he is a good painter but he's rather uncapable of playing bass and the whole band kinda sucked at live performances
however they are One of Greece's best metal acts
|If that's true, then Greece is doing well. It sucks when bands suck live though. Kinda takes away from the experience of the songs in a way, especially for those who really, really like them. (and when their simply grand on the album)|
|I liked how on the Communion album of theirs they didnt have tons of breakdowns like generic death metal bands these days. They involved the orchestra and symphonic arrangements making every song on it unique.|
|yeah,the guitarist is a classically trained musician capable of doing this stuff well|
|I know, right? And they did it without sounding like they were throwing themselves into a power metal sound. It's still death, just with a little symphonic flare to it to make it interesting. And finally, gods like Anubis (a bad ass god) get their own songs in death metal, which is known for sticking to the hypocrisy of the christian church when religion is brought up. In a world overrun with Bloodbaths, Septic Flesh is welcome. |
