musical taste

Currently Digging:
Bing and Ruth

favorite bands, mostly black metal, post rock, modern classical, melodeath, Storm In A Teacup's pie chart list, ,

In Flames Clayman
spoken word vocals don't really belong in melodic death metal and I kinda hate them a lot. This
album might hit harder than Colony or Whoracle, but the wimpy screams and incessant cleans are
annoying and ruin what should be *the* melodeath band.

tl;dr good riffs vox suck
Exquirla Para Quienes Aún Viven
Toundra and Nino de Elche did the fusion dance and created super Spanish Alcest? Sounds good to
me. Some of this might sound like straight plagiarism of Alcest's shoegazier content, but it's
done so well and with enough personal flourishes that it doesn't bother me at all. "Exquirla"
sounds like if you were to take the shoegaziness of Alcest and mix it together with traditional
Spanish music in place of black/metal.
Omphalectoicxanthopsia Eating What You're Fed
it's actually just three tracks of static. Actual static. Better than Bar Sachiko at least lolol.
Tomb Mold Primordial Malignity
Their first demo was a bit more dirty and lo-fi which made it sound much harsher (which I liked), but Primordial Malignity isn't bad for dirty-ish death metal. Cool riffs, man. Cool. Riffs.
Immolation Atonement
Death metal band Immolation can riff for sure but the production is kinda stale and the emotionally minimal gruff vocals are also fairly uninteresting. Still, "Atonement" was surprisingly not as bad as I'd expected it to be.
Dodecahedron Kwintessens
They've got that same discordant dissonant twisty riffing black metal thing going half the time, but this time they've also added spooOooOOOoky atmospherics, too. Not as weirdly atmospheric as, say, Teethed Glory and Injury, but regardless I'm still finding comparisons. Definitely less riff-oriented than the debut, but the added experimentation makes up for it, despite it largely loosing steam in the latter half.
Evile Enter the Grave
this is pretty not-terrible for thrash even if it is just generic "ripoff all the classic bands" metal heyooooo...... 3/5
