Yeah! Haven't listened but it's probably OK.
Digging: False - Untitled
band sucks so much
Digging: Robert Hood - Wire To Wire
inb4 lots of brackets.
hype you don't dig Woe? thought their last album was pretty great
Digging: Elder (USA-MA) - Lore
Woe =/= Woe, Is Me
agreed with hype
its bands like this that are the reason people think its ok to make fun of american black metal
Bands like Woe, Deafheaven, Krallice, basically any black metal who's hipster approved.
Digging: Aelter - IV: Love Eternal
Hipster black metal ist krieg
You guys make me :*(
Thoaght this was Woe, Is Me news
Good thing it wasn't, right?
what matt said
You guys really tricked me. I thought Woe was some serious hipster metal like Deafheaven or Skagos or something, so I listened to Quietly, Undramatically. The album is really just raw black metal with a slight twist. Definitely not hipster bm. What a disappointment.
Well not like Deafheaven or Skagos anyways
idk man this is like serious plaid flannel "i listen to darkthrone because it sounds bad on purpose and is super ironic" bm
Are they hipster for shunning corpse paint or what? The album didn't seem so hipster to me. There was a little acoustic guitar and some sparse cleans, but for the most part they follow trad black metal formula
that's not what he is talking about
So theyre the bad kind of hipster then? Like Liturgy? I love the other kind of hipster black metal
I think I get it. It's because they're posers affecting a grim image. But, wouldn't Fenriz and Nocto be hipsters then?
In fact, wouldn't Varg and maybe Gaahl (lol) and maybe Wrest be the only true black metallers?
jesus christ stop while you're behind
lol. i'm never gonna be trve if I don't get this cleared up
goddamnit I'm going to go burn down a church and avoid all these semantics m/
I get it when it comes to bands like Krallice, Deafheaven and Liturgy. Woe gets lumped in with those bands, but I think it's more for their look and fanbase than for the actual music. But I'm no bm expert so I probably don't know what I'm talking about. I guess naming your band "Woe" doesn't help.
my opinion of this band is purely on their music which sucks
i mean its obvious that theyre "hipster bm" but there are good bands that get labeled like that, these guys just blow hard dick
I was kinda digging this new album until the emo part in song 4. I don't think there's any coming back from that.
Hype, 'Quietly, Undramatically' is definitely not hipster metal, in my opinion at least. A lot of these members come from fairly well respected NA BM bands. I could understand why you may not like the sound, as it's honestly nothing new, but I just like them for the way they deliver it. I saw these guys live in Philly a few years ago, and I have to say they were pretty damn good, was a very raw performance. I haven't listened to the new album yet, but I'm sure it won't live up to the previous. I think the band hit it's peak there.
I don't get the hate for this band or Krallice. Both are m/ Trve kvlt bm ist kinda lame.
oh man hipsters like it so I can't like it.
the vox sucks
really excited to hear this
Digging: Fields of Mildew - Fields of Mildew
Better than Woe, Is Me.
Usually BM that's described as "trve" or "kvlt" or some nerdy shit like that will end up sucking balls.
I love this band. Didn't even know they were putting out an album this year.
Digging: Cult of Luna - Somewhere Along the Highway
Vocals has never been this guy's strong suit, but the instrumentation is usually pretty good.
