2011 So Far

Pretty good year so far. I've been trying to keep on top of things and listen to everything that looks interesting to me.
The Destroyers of All

To be honest, this hasn't been doing much for me. It's pretty cool for a
while but the vocals are just not as good as the rest of the content, and
they really grind me down over the course of 50 minutes. I tend to like my
death metal stupid and violent anyways.

I never got around to listening to Belus but I did listen to this. I feel like
Varg is very polarizing these days and I tend to find myself in the middle.
While this is no Hvis Lyset Tar Oss, it is better than some of the soundoffs
have made it seem. Also, despite what Varg says, I don't think this is as
innovative as he seems to think. A lot of it sounds like typical BM to me.

Definitely good. I appreciate it's short length because that's how I've
always felt screamo and certain types of hardcore are most digestible. I
really want to check out there split and full-length after listening to this.
3Bright Eyes
The People's Key

I'm definitely not digging this as much as earlier Bright Eyes. There are
some good tracks that make it worthwhile but I feel like the album is a lot
less relate-able then old Bright Eyes, and that's half the reason why I loved
it so much. Again, I'm going to give it some time to grow on me.
2The Carrier
Blind to What is Right

Haven't really given this as many listens as I would like, and I haven't
listened to any of their earlier albums. I'm not super into it, but it has some
pretty good moments and I'm hoping it'll grow on me.
1New Lows
Harvest of the Carcass

I'm really surprised at the negative reaction this has received here. I found
this to be amazing. The last thirty seconds of Plaguegrounds send me into
tonic clonic seizures and the rest of the album is fantastic. If you haven't
heard it yet, check it out.
