  • geasoftime I have it downloaded, but I've never listened to it. I guess it's time to check it out.

  • geasoftime Ive actually listened to all of their albums since we last talked about them. I've changed my mind... they're probably my favorite funeral doom at the moment. I dont know where my initial dislike of them came from, but it was way off base

  • Epicenter Thanks, man.

  • geasoftime Hey man.. I found a band I think you'd like: Gallow God. Have you heard them? They're remind me alot of Warning.. real slow tempo like funeral dirge-y music, with more traditional doom vocals than Warning. They just released their debut, and it's very decent.

  • If you like that Caladan Brood album, you should check out the new Appalachian Winter album. Don't let the album artwork scare you away, the album is great. Really epic black metal with civil war era folk elements. The We Lost the Sea album is fantastic too... it's a real shame the vocalist killed himself, I doubt the band will ever recover.

  • DominionMM1 I was being facetious, man.
    May 22 11:46 PM
  • geasoftime Haha, I have too much time on my hands, that's all. Which album were you talking about?
    May 20 02:44 PM
  • geasoftime Oh man, and Enshine's Origin is great. It's by members of AtomA and Fractal Gates/Inborn Suffering. Sputnik is actually streaming the album this week, so you should definitely check it out. These guys are looking like they might be a serious heavyweight contender in death/doom

  • geasoftime I found a few notables, I guess... Unsilence (doom metal kinda similar to Warning), I've also been digging Encircling Sea's A Forgotten Land (cascadian bm - can't remember if I've mentioned them to you before) and Manetheren's Time (post-black metal like Altar of Plagues). It looks like I never recommended you World's End Girlfriend when we were talking about post-rock, but their album Hurtbreak Wonderland is so so good. Have you found anything worthwhile?

  • lately i see you enjoy metal and black stuff and what not, you should check my album, completefreedom.bandcamp.com, I'll be looking forward to your feedback
    May 9 07:00 PM
  • lately yu should check out my recent list for my album, I think you would like it
    May 9 06:06 PM
  • geasoftime No problem, man. I was surprised at how good it was and we had been talking about doom/death, so I figured I should mention it to you. It's too bad that they only released that one album seven years ago. They have potential to be real heavyweights
    April 25 02:09 PM
  • geasoftime Have you heard the Dawn of Solace album?
    April 24 11:44 AM
  • SlMBOLlC Yeh I was pretty proud of myself when I came up with it
    April 22 01:06 AM
  • geasoftime I'm going to download them now. I've found two projects that are worthwhile, after sifting through maybe 15 albums today. The River (who has connections to Warning/40 Watt) and Procession. Any thoughts on those two bands?
    April 17 10:36 PM
  • geasoftime I searched all day yesterday and didn't find a thing that really lived up to either of those two groups. Reverend Bizarre maybe. I haven't checked Stoned Jesus and YOB, so I'm going to do so later today. Thanks for the recs, man
    April 17 11:00 AM
  • geasoftime Do you know anything else similar to 40 Watt Sun/Warning and Pall Bearer (Other than Candlemass and Sabbath)? I can't get enough of those three albums. I've listened to the Warning album three times this week. It's sooo good.
    April 16 09:35 PM
  • geasoftime I downloaded Ophis yesterday, and listened to Withered Shades. It was pretty awesome for what it was. Nothing new, but very solid death/doom. I actually have Graveyard Dirt on my computer but haven't listened to them yet. I'm going to check them tomorrow.

  • FromDaHood haha thanks man. It was awesome to see him do as well as he did. I've talked to him a few times and he's the most humble dude you'll ever meet and playing in Trey Burke's shadow has gotta do something awful to your ego. Watching him play with confidence was super ill.

  • geasoftime Nice. I haven't listened to it yet. I'm going to have to do so soon. But, yeah, that list is a decent resource.. I'd rec any of those 75 groups. I left out all the pointless Explosions in the Skies clones- all of those are unique. I was going hard on post-rock at the end of January. I got tired of it, but I still listen to 20 of those bands here and there when I'm in the mood. Post-rock is good music to read to and to fall asleep to. That's basically what I'm using it for until the next binge.

  • geasoftime Aurore Rien, Codeine, eF, Epic45, Hammock, Lights Out Asia, Moving Mountains, Midas Fall, Sigur Ros, and A Silver Mount Zion all use vocals to some extent. I definitely prefer post-rock that has either vocals or some kind of field recording or movie clips or something to break the album up. There's a bunch of post-rock/emo(or indie) bands that I haven't really looked into yet, like the Appleseed Cast and My Winter Nerve. There's so much to listen to, honestly.. it never ends.

  • geasoftime You'd probably dig all the Godspeed side projects as well. HRSTA is similar to F#A# era GSYBE. Set Fire to Flames is reminiscent of post-Slow Riot GSYBE. Esmerine is kind of like Tortoise - cold and jazzy. A Silver Mt. Zion is good too, but there's vocals and it's not as post-rock as the others.

  • demigod! **** yeah dude, one of the best shws
    April 9 09:17 PM
  • geasoftime Yeah, I figured you were bound to know a few of them, or maybe all of them (none are too obscure). That's why I decided to rec you so many. Hit me with some feedback once you give them a listen.
    April 9 08:56 PM
  • demigod! definitely dude, splatterthrash is a seriously rockin album. their first couple albums are pretty different from it tho, much more emphasis on the gore metal and less thrash
    April 9 02:21 PM
  • geasoftime I would check Red Sparowes - Every Red Heart Shines Toward the Red Sun, Lights Out Asia - Eyes Like Brontide, and Dirty Three - Ocean Songs. Also, these are called post-metal, but they're instrumental and basically just heavier than your typical post-rock: Russian Circles - Geneva, Omega Massif - Karpatia, and Pelican - The Fire in Our Throats Will Beckon the Thaw. There's others I'd like to mention, but these will keep you busy for a while. Nothing here is lower than a 4 imo

  • geasoftime I really can't guarantee that you'll like it. OtWatM are neofolk. If you like neofolk, or even the folk transitions that alot of black metal bands these days use, you might be into it. But, I wouldn't consider it a solid recommendation, you know based off of your ratings and whatnot. It's really a shot in the dark. Post-rock, though, I can rec. Next time you're looking for new post-rock, let me know.
    April 9 10:53 AM
  • geasoftime Metal is really all I've been listening to these days, honestly. There's alot of electronic and post-rock that I really dig, but I haven't felt up to listening to it lately. I've been stuck on Post-Metal big time. I just realized how awesome Neurosis and Cult of Luna are. Anyways, have you ever heard of :Of the Wand and the Moon:? They have the same hyper-depressive atmosphere as 40 Watt Sun. The music is pretty dissimilar, but both albums will have you braiding a noose quick.
    April 9 07:39 AM
  • geasoftime 40 Watt Sun is ridiculously good. Wow. I didn't know that Pallbearer they came out just last year either. I had them as like a Candlemass era type band in my head. Definitely gonna check them.. they've gotten some serious ratings. 145 votes on a debut. That's really impressive for sputnik.
    April 8 02:53 PM
  • geasoftime Yeah, for that particular brand of doom they're definitely the masters. Speaking of doom, I'm thinking of checking 40 Watt Sun next . I've seen that name too many times to ignore it.
