musical taste

Currently Digging:
Bing and Ruth
City of the Sun

favorite bands, mostly black metal, post rock, modern classical, melodeath,

Ludovico Einaudi Elements
didn't have this rated for some reason. From what I can remember it's more solid modern classical. Largely piano-based music.
Vermin Womb Decline
Nasty grind with some of that dissonant death metal mixed in here and there (there are some lengthy blast parts with non-grindy tremolo chord progressions). The vox are particularly nasty, but aside from having a generally abrasive sound, there's not much else to go on here. It's grind with lots of punk drumming, loads of blasts, and basically whatever else you'd expect from a short grind record. If they'd up their songwriting a bit they could be really interesting, especially since their music sounds really powerful already.
Steve Roach The Passing
Another long-form ambient piece by Steve Roach. It's pretty, dreamy atmospheric background music. It goes and goes and goes, changing little/not at all as it creeps along its 59-minute runtime. You can listen to the first five minutes of melodic ups-and-downs on repeat for an hour and lose little to nothing instead of listening to the other 55 minutes of the piece. It's music you can sleep to, work to, zone out to, go about your day to. Eventually your subconscious forgets you're even hearing it, just like the humming of your nervous system or the running of blood in your ears. So it's Steve Roach doing Steve Roach and it's whatever you
Volcanic Queen Innocence of Those Who Perished
Paysage D'Ambient music. It's like black metal with all the black and none of the metal.
Bing and Ruth No Home of the Mind
Not as great as "Tomorrow..." but still another solid piano ambient record by Bing & Ruth.
Max Richter Three Worlds: Music from Woolf Works
Classical music.
Jardin de la Croix Circadia
jazzy math post-rock that does chugs hard sometimes. tweedle leedle leedle.
