Digging: Junius - Days of the Fallen Sun
cover art looks like a Magic card, which is great.
cover art is fantastic
It's so bright.
love this band, favorite instrumental band by far
album artwork rocks
Sweet, some more suckage from these guys.
Digging: Mistigo Varggoth Darkestra - The Key to the Gates of the Apocalypse
cover rules, so must be aoty
suckage? lol listen to The Collective and rethink that statement
The Collective was the biggest awesome surprise of 2011, stoked for this
Digging: The Brave Little Abacus - Just Got Back from the Discomfort
This band is awesome. Chris is the nicest dude ever. Unsure why other instrumental acts get no love and these guys do... kinda dumb.
Man i'm really excited for this album
animals as leaders gets love too
I'm not the biggest fan of the cover, honestly. Their other albums have shown a lot of restraint in the artwork and this is kind of off the wall. But whatever. I'm waiting to hear the sound in full, too, but it seems way more like Monument which is not the best thing (but still pretty cool).
Of course Jamie King made it gold.
cant wait, so unbelievably keen. cover art looks great.
cover art looks like a dinosaur made out of broccoli.
"cover art looks like a dinosaur made out of broccoli."
Cannot be unseen. Lol
Digging: The Contortionist - Language
I think the reason these guys get more love compared to other metal instrumental acts is that their
music doesn't sound dull. Not the most technical or complex metal musicians, but their songwriting is
great and they actually do something interesting compared to bands that play scales as fast as they
can without any strong harmonic structure or incoherent lines and with drummers so who try to do a
bunch of complex rhythms that sound mathematical rather than musical.
Well that's why I enjoy listening to them.
You are what you eat, guess those dinosaurs have been eating their vegetables
Couldn't help it lol
always forget this album is on the horizon. pleasantly surprised when i'm reminded.
nah they rock
they have the diddly-doos
Megadeth, Alice in Chains, Black Sabbath, Cynic, Carcass, and now Scale the Summit have new albums coming out this year! I NEED MORE MONEY! DX
stoked to hear this, but i understand the "suckage" remarks. They are boring as hell live and their albums lack diversity that an instrumental band needs
I'm ready! I'm ready!
Can't stop won't stop
god theyre so good
I'm very much looking forward to this!
Loving the art very much so
Digging: Interpol - El Pintor
My body is ready
Digging: Darkspace - Dark Space III I
I always hope you're trolling when you post stuff like this silentpotato, either that or you're one of the most pseudo-intelligent elitist on here.
both i think ^
made my preorder, cd/vinyl combo coming my way. that blueish-white cloud colored vinyl was too pretty to pass on. glad i got one too, guess they only made 100 like that, then 300 just a boring clear
Potsy only likes ambient drone music
I got the vinyl too, because I've been getting my favorite album from each year on vinyl, and this will be AOTY '13
heard their new track on metalsucks this morning. sounded aight, was still kinda sleepy and had to listen to it quiet at work so idk really. i usually like waiting for the full album anyway.
