  • Phlegm oh wow they changed the name of that /F record! looks like they removed the last track for streaming too which sucks because it really tied the album together sonically -- and YES pcmusic is both disgusting and sweet at the same time
    October 1 12:12 AM
  • MyLittlePony someone thought it was so offensive and personal that they killed themselves so the mods changed it to avoid more suicides i think
    September 30 08:18 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Hard you have gd taste. I'll feature in next cap recs
    September 29 08:28 PM
  • CaptainDooRight dude this is pretty sweet, vox are sweet! hella unique actually, this is like nirvana status with pantera agression, heavy grunge, killer chorus, dude im not gonna lie this is pretty dam sweet.
    September 29 02:54 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Ah. Yeah I'm hearing a lot of buzz so I'll have to check it out once it's released
    September 28 06:50 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Is there a full stream for the new Objekt anywhere?
    September 28 06:48 PM
  • AaronIsCrunchy By the way, The Residents are really, really weird. They're not really like anything I've ever heard before, but I'm half way through the Angry Angakok and I'm definitely feeling somewhat perturbed.
    September 28 04:52 AM
  • AaronIsCrunchy Yeah, my luck with them is less-than-good, to put it bluntly. I think I've liked them as they're cheap, but my god are they fragile.Not sure about the Sport as I never bought one, but I'm pretty sure they're more or less a slightly larger Zip with a bigger screen. If that's the case I wouldn't get one, and if both of yours are still going then I'd keep on them until you need a new one again :)
    September 28 04:51 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot will do, thanks man
    September 27 09:21 PM
  • CaptainDooRight I wish I was a better drummer. I just gotta keep practicing b
    September 27 08:39 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Awesome bro that's great feedback and I fully agree! I think ambient over the cleans is a great idea. Thanks so much for that feedback!!
    September 27 08:37 PM
  • TMobotron Thanks man, the thing is that I loved my Sansa but I'm not sure what went wrong with it. I think it's something on the rockbox end but unfortunately I need rockbox to make the mSD card work (I like rockbox too (when it works)). I'll definitely look into those if I decide to go a different route.
    September 27 07:01 PM
  • ShrillYell Totally understand. However, you do know all these tracks are not recently made? Probably only a couple, a lot of them span several years back. Perhaps when he actually writes something completely new, we'll see something we haven't seen before. Syro is just like a sign to show us he's back.
    September 27 04:46 PM
  • zakalwe Yeah he's name has always cropped up but it was all so mind bending back in the day. I loved some of it but wrote off the vast majority as Cornish bumpkin acid riddled twaddle. Loved Rhubarb though.
    September 27 03:57 PM
  • zakalwe I'll have run out when you switch onto Aphex Twin dude.Can't get enough of that at the min, and remember I'm old I look a right berk blaring it from me motor.
    September 27 03:44 PM
  • ShrillYell mastery shown. It all boils down to what sounds you prefer tho so nothing against preferring DG
    September 27 03:30 PM
  • ShrillYell Yeah their sounds are pretty abrasive and at some times quite original. But my point with my comment was that you gotta admit that RDJ has a particular mastery of electronic music production. Only really him does it the way he does, and you can tell that by comparing the actual music to the fake leaks that showed up weeks ago. Death Grips, as enjoyable as they can be sometimes, is much easier to replicate. So yeah Syro isn't all that new in terms of sound, but it's still ahead in terms of that
    September 27 03:29 PM
  • ShrillYell I'll give the others a listen properly and get back to you on them but Death Grips...really? I like them and all but any kid with simple knowledge of fruity loops can make music like them.
    September 27 03:16 PM
  • emester what are you talking about were all idiots on here lol
    September 27 02:07 PM
  • emester negative nancy?
    September 27 01:56 PM
  • emester are you turning to noctus? ;]
    September 27 01:46 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, well, let's not go that far.
    September 27 11:13 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges *sigh* Your taste is an enigma, Choccy.
    September 27 10:37 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges You gave III a 3.
    September 27 10:28 AM
  • CaptainDooRight new track would be nice to get your feedback: https://soundcloud.com/therealtrvth/orgasmic-progressing-forests
    September 26 07:36 PM
  • beefshoes aha thanks man! :D I've been thinking about covering the whole album after midterms. That album is incredibly fun to play along to.
    September 24 06:55 PM
  • Oceanographer Well, thanks for the warm welcome then! (:
    September 24 12:56 PM
  • Oceanographer I didn't figure I'd fit in, I have fairly odd taste. Honestly my taste is very specific, if that makes sense. I really dislike most music that I hear, but occasionally I'll fall in love with a record.
    September 24 12:46 PM
  • BMDrummer haha yeah of course i doubt darren would post here, it would be glaringly obvious if he did with his taste.
    September 23 08:47 PM
  • BMDrummer oh damn wrong user lol, i'm retarded sometimes
    September 23 08:44 PM
  • BMDrummer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meSXaAb6zVQ
    September 23 08:38 PM
  • BMDrummer saw you on a prog review video on youtube lol
    September 23 08:36 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges A 4 now? That's better. And yes, I monitor your ratings constantly.
    September 23 05:47 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I think you'd dig, but it's definitely is ideal for laying back on the couch and relaxing to
    September 23 05:42 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot new hammock album is great yo
    September 23 11:41 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges A 3.5 for Darkspace????
    September 22 09:36 PM
  • Onirium Haha yeah, according to 3 people I'm a good reviewer :P And yeah, I tried to delve a little further into extreme metal after jamming them for the first time too, but apart from few other avant-garde bands like Kayo Dot (who are hardly "extreme" anyways), it's not really my thing. I'll probably check out Flesh too someday, I'm not really in a metal phase at the moment.
    September 22 07:14 PM
  • Onirium Well I'm not a big fan, but I dig Fables of the Sleepless Empire quite a lot. That review wasn't that bad though, especially for a first (not that I'm experienced in that field though)
    September 22 06:56 PM
  • Onirium Dude you dig Unexpect?
    September 22 06:37 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sweet, thanks
    September 20 04:50 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot maybe some underrated classical?
    September 20 04:39 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot I've got a couple contenders lol, I'll probably promote a couple soon
    September 20 04:35 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot ah. heard this a while ago and thought it was pretty trippy. it's not Venetian Snares messy or anything but it's still radhttp://projectmooncircle.bandcamp.com/album/finest-ego-inner-worlds
    September 20 04:27 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot what sort of genre have you been digging lately? I might actually be able to rec you something worth a s***
    September 20 04:23 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot gahhh! lol, I give up
    September 20 04:21 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot heard this earlier today and it might be more your style... doesn't drag as much lolhttp://emmanuelholterbach.bandcamp.com/album/the-horizon-is-yet-to-come
    September 20 04:11 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yeah man, definitely don't expect a ton of people to give it a fair shake, but musique concrete is criminally unnoticed on here so I figured I'd spread the love
    September 20 03:28 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sweet, glad you liked. I didn't find it too abrasive at first, but I guess the machine noises can be kinda grating (if that's what you meant)
    September 20 03:22 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sweet, lemme know what you think of the review/album if you get a chance
    September 20 02:11 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot and yeah I've been pumping them out, should probably slow down
    September 20 02:07 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot it's not 'industrial' like industrial rock or anything, it's musique concrete based on industrial machine noises and s***... lol
    September 20 02:06 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot yo choccy, I think you might dig the album I just revved
    September 20 02:01 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, really? I've had some pretty amazing discussions here myself.
    September 19 08:24 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hahaha, well, I personally liked it a lot, even with that disturbing discussion about the deep web and the dick on the cover.
    September 19 08:14 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Finally rated No Love Deep Web, eh?
    September 19 08:01 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I guess they're both repetitive and like math, that's the only similarity between them that I can think of. Pretty different bands lol
    September 19 07:38 PM
  • Torontonian sweet!
    September 19 05:51 PM
  • ASnideReturns Lmao I got tired of not rating albums man.
    September 19 05:37 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Aw that hurts but I guess 10000 days is their most immediately enjoyable. I jammed lateralus for a while and it eventually became one of my all time favorites, hopefully it'll grow on you
    September 19 10:28 AM
  • TomAnderson You have the favorite taste of sputnikmusic! Recommendations?
    September 18 11:13 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Do you not like lateralus?
    September 18 06:53 PM
  • Torontonian Nah just those two. I might now after hearing magnolia. Which i actually really liked.
    September 18 03:42 PM
  • Torontonian Hey what did you think of new Pineapple thief BTW? i actually thought it was pretty good and better than the one you introduced me to. Little man i think.
    September 17 09:54 PM
  • Hurricanslash Sooo, uhhh, dude, you asked for some more Spoken Word, so, here ya go! https://manyfaces.bandcamp.com/album/theThere is also a thread, but you requested it, so I wanted to send it to you here as well.
    September 15 11:16 AM
  • ArsMoriendi He, like many of the users in his "group" think I'm stupid as hell. Which, on here, I kind of am.
    September 14 10:33 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hahaha, well, I like his music, but nothing else about him.
    September 14 10:21 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Those that make noises.
    September 14 10:04 PM
  • ArsMoriendi I know man. When are the mods going to ban him though?
    September 14 09:38 PM
  • Supercoolguy64 ChoccyPhilly is indeed, Choccy philly : )
    September 14 07:45 PM
  • ASnideReturns Mine and Ins's album is slated for November
    September 14 07:15 PM
  • Futures only way i'd have it bae
    September 13 10:53 PM
  • Futures i think we can be friends now tbh
    September 13 10:48 PM
  • Futures hi
    September 13 10:40 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges From what I've seen, it seems that Jom was still in charge, along with Dave and morissey. Willie rose to prominence around 2009/2010, and Dev hit it big in 2011, if I remember correctly.
    September 13 05:26 PM
  • Artuma yeah paysage is wintherr's solo project. kristall und isa would probably be the best one to start with but the s/t is my favorite
    September 13 06:43 AM
  • Artuma nice to see you like darkspace. have you ever listened to paysage d'hiver?
    September 13 05:35 AM
  • Torontonian itsa perf album if you ask me.
    September 10 07:03 PM
  • Torontonian dangit.
    September 10 06:49 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, sorry to spring it on you. I was just interested, because a lot of former Emeriti either just sucked at writing (Neoteric) or didn't do jack s*** on their time with the site (Kage, Zebra). But yeah, Sobhi and the two Tylers are cool. Who else is there?
    September 10 05:50 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Well, I know that he used to be a forum moderator. Anyways, who are your favorite Emeriti?
    September 10 04:10 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Tyler was an editor?
    September 10 03:52 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges No prob, mate. The Emeritus list used to be much longer, actually.
    September 10 03:27 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges STONKING GREAT TITS!!!
    September 9 11:06 PM
  • Torontonian Your Bjork-homogenic rating makes me really sad. :'(
    September 9 08:28 PM
  • Mort. cool man. im just psyched for new enter shikari at the moment. if new album is in january, then we should have new track/video in a month or 2
    September 9 02:24 PM
  • Mort. Brooo did you ever give cutting pink with knives a try again?
    September 9 12:37 PM
  • scottpilgrim10 amazing avatar dude
    September 7 08:29 PM
  • Mort. sweeeeeeeet. will be getting tickets for that
    September 6 12:27 PM
  • Mort. where did u hear this?
    September 6 09:23 AM
  • Sabrutin Cool! I always enjoyed it, I feel it's more fun to play than tennis because it gives me a better feeling of control.
    September 5 04:02 PM
  • Sabrutin Dude do you play badminton? Haha I used to play it too, but I stopped after three years.
    September 4 05:37 PM
  • ArsMoriendi It's mainly Fripp, Yak, and Futures. They comment so much on my lists though that it looks like half of the site. Oh, well. What can I do, right?
    September 3 11:26 PM
  • Onirium Yeah, me too, but I've read positive reviews about it, so I really don't know what to expect. And yeah, I agree they really had developped something that made them unique with Little Man and What Have We Sown. And I understand that with their new direction they might want to appeal to more people, but they have proved in the past that they can still be catchy without losing their originality, with songs like All You Need to Know for example.
    September 2 11:21 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man, just saw that 'for the meds' post you made on my behalf... much appreciated dude :] too bad they didn't bite
    September 2 07:13 PM
  • HolidayKirk Haven't listened to the whole thing yet but it's definitely getting covered. Thanks for recommending it.
    September 2 01:39 PM
  • Onirium Yeah, that would be great, but I've looked at the tracklist and there's no song going over like 5 minutes. Which disappointed me too, but we can still hope. Like I said, the song for me was nothing outstanding, but it still grows a little. If they did it well and originally, I could probably like a completely alt-rock TPT album, and even though I was expecting that, I had hope they'd come back to a more acoustic-driven sound like on Little Man and What Have We Sown.
    September 2 08:01 AM
  • Phlegm awesome dude! Great to see you're challenging yourself when it comes to writing (I would be LOST trying to write about Sophie or D/P/I), also I'd love a download link for that ;) phlegmm@gmail.com if you're willing ~~ oh ALSO dpi has a new project coming out in a few weeks, so if you are a little skeptical reviewing IAL then maybe wait and see if that one has a fresh impact on you, could lead to a feature as well :-)
    September 1 10:59 PM
  • Onirium Hey man, have you heard the new Pineapple Thief song? Nothing really outstanding or groundbreaking but still pretty good stuff. At the first listen I didn't really like the more catchy alternative rock direction it was taking, but after a couple listens, once I got past the fact that it's not really prog, then it actually started to grow on me. Anyway, we all expected them to venture into a more alt rock direction, but I'm still hoping for some proggier stuff on the rest of the album
    September 1 09:46 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot cool, hope you like man
    September 1 08:54 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Yo Choccy you might dig this Poloniumcubes album
    September 1 08:28 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Yeah I probably could for a little bit, shoutbox me the link and I'll be on in 15 minutes
    September 1 01:10 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Idk, I really like Burial.
    September 1 12:10 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Dat Burial and Four Tet rating.
    September 1 10:48 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Doesn't really matter for you though since you never seem to ever sleep haha
    August 31 03:44 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Yeah I love how diverse it is, there's people from like Finland and Australia and South America and I like when they make lists about their lives, I usually end up learning more about the cultures in some way
    August 31 02:26 PM
  • TalonsOfFire FiveLeavesLeft, The Moreira, BigPleb, Green Baron, Mongi123, and probably a few others. But they're not who've been sharing my photos, it's all from the sputnik facebook group so I'd stay away from that, but friending sputnikers who aren't trolls and you talk to is probably fine, which is what I've been trying to stick to
    August 31 02:05 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Oh I see, yeah it was probably Yak or any of the trolls I don't really care though, any pics you post on FB are public so whatever. Are you FB friends with any sputnikers?
    August 31 01:54 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That cover photo is one of my old profile pictures, but I didn't make that account. Do you have any idea who did?
    August 31 01:40 PM
  • Phlegm holy s*** i rambled LOL guess words have been building up in my fingers after being away from a computer for a while, sorry ^_^
    August 30 08:28 PM
  • Phlegm -s bad boi for a hot MINUTE, i heard his stretch 2 mixtape and it was FIYAH, like shabazz palaces but mixed with a tonne of other experimental electronic dudes, so i will check out his album because several people have already told me too haha. REMIND ME in a few days when i'm back home and i'll have that thing downloading in a BLINK i swear
    August 30 08:27 PM
  • Phlegm so yeah try out Jeanette if u want, Espresso Digital and Fresh Roses have some pretty unique moments but go for a more contemporary (probably the wrong word) electronic style. 08.DD.15 and RICO however are just super glitchy and drop a lot of the sample flipping you'd hear in previous projects (though 08.DD.15 has THIS.OF.YOU which is this totally sick old soul sample twisted up). so yeah just whatever fits they are all pretty easy to digest and consume. NOW ARCA, i've been meaning to check thi
    August 30 08:26 PM
  • Phlegm so yeah check out I'm ****in' You Tonight if that sounds appealing to you, really smooth stuff which gets a LOT of play time on phlegm radio. OK SO BACK TO YOUR QUESTION LOL, uhhh my favorite DPI tape is Jeanette, but that's mainly from the heavy hip hop influence he puts forth on it. it's jammed full with like chief keef samples and s*** but it's mixed with such heavy bass and sporadic stuttering glitches that it makes u feel like you are driving in Paul Walkers grey skyline in 2 Fast 2 Furious
    August 30 08:24 PM
  • Phlegm their own random distinctive sound, Deep Magic and Olympus Mons are his ambient projects and they are REALLY good if you're into that type of genre. he mixes in a really varied amount of instruments on Deep Magic which gives him a certain unique quality when compared to other artists in the genre. HEAT WAVE is another one of his that I LOVE, it's like super slowed down glitchy r
    August 30 08:21 PM
  • Phlegm WHOOPS sorry man i only got access to a laptop a couple hours ago and your post got lost in my whirlwind of deadlines :~( yeah it's definitely safe to say i'm an Alex Gray fanboy lol, there was a stage earlier in this year where for like a MONTH all i listened to was dj/purple/image and heat wave. yeah it's such a pain that the DL link is broken, but i'll have a look on SLSK when i get home next week and check if there's anything available there!! yeah he has a few aliases which each excell in-
    August 30 08:15 PM
  • Phlegm omg yessss i can't believe you checked D/P/I this is GREAT news!!! Over all his aliases he is one of the realest in the game right now :-) what projects have you heard from him so far? Also i can understand ur thoughts about the end of In all languages, but for me it was a huge throw back to his old rnb chopped and screwed style as Heat Wave, and totally made the project for me ~~~~ sorry for typos I'm typing on my phone in the middle of a busy city
    August 28 11:49 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Haha yeah I'm gonna try to get a good portion of it done today, will hopefully have it done by next week at the latest, and maybe it will convince you to raise that unholy 2.5 :P
    August 28 01:56 PM
  • Mad. Awesome man, what about the 5.0 it deserves? (jk)Saw you 1.5'd Royal Blood but 3.5'd Knife Party, what's goin on there?!?!?!
    August 27 06:19 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Brostep is stuff like Skrillex.
    August 27 09:32 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges In all seriousness, though, you probably know that there's two main groups of dubstep producers: The more garage-influenced UK dub scene, and the American brostep scene. Critics tend to favor the UK artists, understandably so, hence why I called them "trve".
    August 27 08:45 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Well, you'd have to ask Dev on the history of European dub and how it was adopted by their American counterparts, but he hasn't returned my calls, so he's probably busy.
    August 27 08:39 AM
  • BMDrummer i like to write stuff
    August 26 08:33 PM
  • Brostep Sure, gimme a sec to get home.
    August 26 07:32 PM
  • SowingSeason They quoted it on Metacritic so I asked to have it taken down. Didn't want to destroy the site's credibility lol. You can still find the review in the form of a soundoff.
    August 25 10:51 PM
  • VermTheLeviathan Yeah man, I have to recover the lost time pal
    August 25 05:03 PM
  • TheAJMetal Oh yeah I got into Wintersun years ago. I prefer their self-titled, particularly because its dark vibe and heavier presence of harsh vocals were great. Time I was also good, though.
    August 24 10:21 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Awesome I've been meaning to get into that, can't today but probably tomorrow morning which would be the afternoon for you I think
    August 23 05:13 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Do you mean on plug.dj? I've never been on that site someone was supposed to show me how it works
    August 23 02:55 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Aren't we doing that now?
    August 23 02:08 PM
  • Brostep I am indeed - look for the announcement post around September.
    August 23 07:23 AM
  • TheAJMetal Saw your SA comments on two different pages just now!Are there any other bands of the power metal genre you could recommend? I am just not feeling SA as hard as I can try and was looking for something a little less sickeningly sugary.
    August 22 05:24 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Thanks!
    August 21 03:12 AM
  • oltnabrick Alright peace dude, you've had your fun.
    August 20 08:42 PM
  • oltnabrick sorry dude, but you got to slow down. take a break for a couple months/years.
    August 20 08:38 PM
  • 10000InchDethChains Hope that those folks stop acting liek stalinist which aren't friends of the debate
    August 20 06:50 PM
  • 10000InchDethChains I hope, but you know some folks bitch too much
    August 20 06:13 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Haha fair enough. I basically jammed the Beatles constantly btwn ages 8 and 10 and went through a revival a few years ago but haven't really listened since then, though I remember the songs well enough and liked them. I just rated them because I was recently reminded of their existence but give them a go, abbey road is probably their best
    August 16 04:17 PM
  • Mort. oh and according to rous twitter, new es is nearly fully mixed. liker very nearly
    August 16 12:18 PM
  • Mort. dude you enjoy 2000s take that? same. actually really good arent they.
    August 16 12:00 PM
  • Mort. sweet man. i just want them to get more attention. i think they deserve it
    August 15 07:32 PM
  • Mort. dude are you going to check cutting pink with knives out again?
    August 15 07:09 PM
  • Mad. Agh that's so frustrating man, results are good though, looks like we had a similar problem with one subject lol
    August 14 03:19 PM
  • Mad. s*** the suspense must be killing you. Mine went mostly really well, ABB in Business, Philosophy and English and then bizarrely, a D in History lol, guess I know what I'm dropping. It's strange because I felt like I did well in History...
    August 14 03:50 AM
  • Mad. Results ok Choccy?
    August 14 03:14 AM
  • TalonsOfFire As if the internet wasn't disgusting or offensive enough lol. I guess that's more or less what I was expecting, don't think I'll search any though your descriptions was all the info I needed haha
    August 12 06:41 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Ive seen you talking about the "deep web" a lot on here, what exactly is that? I've never heard of it but I'm afraid to search it because it sounds bad. Also just saw the post below me, congrats on the feature!
    August 12 06:18 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Congrats on the feature, man!
    August 12 04:30 PM
  • ASnideReturns The story is about introspection and a man confronting his abandoned past. So it's gonna be pretty damn dark that's for sure.
    August 11 05:25 PM
  • ASnideReturns Olafur Arnalds is one of my favorite modern composers, our music is extremely piano heavy. For more details on the instrumentation you'd have to talk to Ins because he's in charge of that. I'm in charge of writing the story / lyrics and the vocal narration. (I'm a low baritone / high bass)

  • ASnideReturns Well, it's not the acoustic EP that I was originally making. Here are the details on the project - http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Ice-in-the-Sky/59659/
    August 11 05:09 PM
  • ASnideReturns Feedback would be really cool, from what it seems like, at least five people are going to be reviewing it on Sputnik. It's gonna be a s***storm when we stream it because we'll announce it to the general mass of Sputnik via news article.
    August 11 05:06 PM
  • ASnideReturns Hey Chocc, Insurrection and I are releasing an EP in November. Would you be down to give it a listen?
    August 11 04:59 PM
  • Mort. i need more enter shikari choccy.
    August 11 02:57 PM
  • Mort. may of just ordered 3 enter shikari shirts that were on sale aswell as anything can happen cd single.............i keep on checking their fb for new album. they will release a song off it soon, in the coming months probably
    August 11 08:56 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot how do you like that Lionel Marchetti album?
    August 9 11:31 AM
  • Mort. yeah defo. i had this idea ages ago that i brought up that everyone said was good but we never did. it was to get people in plug who all want to listen to a new album, then jam that new fully in plug and chat about it. i might try and set it up with people
    August 8 07:28 PM
  • SkaCali oh well i was just being silly at the babymetal thread
    August 8 07:25 PM
  • Mort. yeah im plugging a lot more these days. in hard jammers or riffs a lot. theyre updating the site at the moment, apparently its gonna be a lot better
    August 8 07:21 PM
  • Mort. hmm good example. yeah no falcons isnt grindey, not entirley electronic. id say its like electro/punk or something? anyway, the album is really unique so its not surprising its hard to convey what parts of it sound like.
    August 8 07:18 PM
  • Mort. i dont know what those bits are. listen to a song, then tell me what bit you mean. eg 20 - 40 secs in *song title*
    August 8 07:11 PM
  • Mort. emo? u wat mate
    August 8 07:06 PM
  • Mort. yeah just checked on the proper versions, none of them end abruptly in an irregular way. i think u r listening to s*** versions
    August 8 07:04 PM
  • SkaCali banned :(
    August 8 07:04 PM
  • Mort. it doesnt bro.if ur listening to it on youtube that might be s***ty uploads. it doesnt on spotify if i remember correctly
    August 8 07:02 PM
  • ASnideReturns No, I figured that the best idea would be to only rate things that I review.
    August 8 05:00 PM
  • ASnideReturns I'm glad my opinions have been missed haha. My first review back is... going to be quite negative though. It's a band called "Hello Kitty Suicide Club."
    August 8 04:54 PM
  • ASnideReturns The Gojira cover is going to take the same approach as Whitechapel's acoustics. No vocals, just intricate guitar work. The thread(s) will most likely be insane.
    August 8 04:49 PM
  • ASnideReturns Somewhat, along with that I just missed having a reviewing audience.
    August 8 04:42 PM
  • BMDrummer yeah, i'm still somewhat interested in the whole idea since i'm a tech nerd. probably never gonna actually get on it, but all this discussion is interesting
    August 7 11:16 PM
  • BMDrummer sorry about the deep web discussion lol
    August 7 10:57 PM
  • TalonsOfFire No problem dude, most of the modern genrebending stuff sounds fine but yeah a lot of the classic stuff sounds s***ty but it's all part of the atmosphere I guess
    August 7 10:07 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yeah, I'm not even gonna bother. I can't sleep anyways.
    August 7 09:28 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Even without the gruesome snuff films and the disgusting pedo s***, it's still disturbing. Sure, I got a laugh from the "mail-order marijuana" thing, but being able to hire contract killers and mercenaries? Abducting homeless people and performing experiments on them? Nasty, man.
    August 7 09:09 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, I can tell you won't want to explore the Deep Web anytime soon.
    August 7 09:02 PM
  • BMDrummer hehe you're welcome i guess, i still don't like it either
    August 7 08:08 PM
  • BrandonNeedles Thanks for the rec about Dangerkids I really love their sound
    August 7 05:00 PM
  • VermTheButcher Dude, I rated ES with a 2,5. Maybe 2 but I give to those albums a second chance, compared with their contemporaries they are pure gold and they have some good songs and they have a cool live show, still they have some flaws.
    August 7 02:34 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Judgement is their only one I haven't heard besides their doomy ones, which is funny because it's considered their masterpiece. I would start with A Fine Day To Exit and A Natural Disaster, they have the least cheese. If those don't grab you listen to a song or two from Alternative 4 or We're Here, you'll know pretty quickly if you like those or not
    August 6 11:37 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Some of their stuff sounds a lot like Porcupine Tree and The Pineapple Thief, their first three are the only doom metal ones. The rest are alt. rock/new prog sounding. Which albums did you hear?
    August 6 11:29 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Haha we all have guilty pleasures, but yeah I don't know what response you were expecting with a response like that, but I see what you're saying. They're pretty mediocre for metalcore standards with some cool stuff but like you've been saying: if they pull themselves together songwritingwise they could probably make something great
    August 6 12:34 AM
  • Mall Can't think of much at all I've loved from this year :/ and no I just never end up giving albums 4.5 I guess. I will do so!
    August 5 06:46 PM
  • Mall Lol maybe, and yeah a lot of stuff was disappointing this year so eh
    August 5 06:41 PM
  • Mall 5's are VERY hard to dish out these days, and well you could say that but I like to keep track of everything I listen to
    August 5 06:30 PM
  • Mall Haha I am getting pickier there's no doubt! I guess the albums I like are ones I really do like though so I guess that makes up for it
    August 5 06:04 PM
  • Onirium Well yeah I can understand that, if it doesn't work for you, it doesn't work. By the way, I've checked out Death Grips, and, well, it was not really my taste, but it made me realize hip-hop can actually be pretty good and interesting. It's just the genre is simply not for me; it's practically the opposite of what I usually listen to, so it would take me a lot more listens to get into it, and maybe someday I will.
    August 4 11:58 PM
  • zakalwe Down here we are possibly the biggest wankers to walk these isles dude. Norfolk, a strange place indeed. Now I understand your just getting into 'trip-hop' Nu-Metal should reach you in a few months it all goes down hill from there on in bro!
    August 4 06:00 PM
  • zakalwe Cool dude, I'm on me phone can't open the link. Who is it? I'll be sure to check it later. Urchin - Urchin is a good one from the states that went under the radar but it's missing the grittiness to make it a 'classic'
    August 4 05:49 PM
  • OmairSh Didn't like his cleans?!!!! He's one of the most incredible vocalists I've heard. Dam. Well I can't say I didn't know the album wasn't for everyone.
    August 3 10:04 PM
  • OmairSh Avant-garde prog black death jazz metal? I'm interested, plus the album art looks cool. Will check, thanks. Ironically Leprous have avant-garde elements as well
    August 3 01:48 PM
  • OmairSh It's a genius album, but it will seem like a cluster fvck on the first few listens, it won't make sense. It takes a few listens to unravel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=986iAyQpr1U, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-1QXC49LxE. Their latest 3 albums are all great, but Bilateral is their best imo. Band is important for the future of prog.
    August 3 01:38 PM
  • OmairSh Modern truly prog metal album? Leprous - Bilateral, give it time to sink in
    August 3 01:28 PM
  • Onirium I'm quite surprised by your Godspeed ratings dude. I mean, you're entitled to your own opinions of course, yet I thought GY!BE would be something you'd dig. I'm curious to know the reason behind those ratings though
    August 2 10:24 PM
  • Mort. na man i like anesthetist, dont judge it till the full version. it sounds like that recording really muffled the potential of its atmospheric qualities (especially the chorus). sounds like theres a lot more going on itn it that we cant hear
    August 2 06:56 PM
  • Mort. oh and have you seen this tour vid they released today? so funny https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeJyFvH5qh0
    August 2 06:47 PM
  • Mort. yeah i think rat race probs attracted more peeps who liked ES already, hence the high av. but, i still think their current style will be seen as their best by most people, perhaps warranting a 3.5/3.6. im just aching for a new song already.
    August 2 06:45 PM
  • Mort. na im fine with the low average. id rather it be higher, but **** it, its ok. tbh rat race has such a high average (3.8) that i think their new album will have a high average aswell. it seems like theyre getting more focused. rat race was strong.
    August 2 06:34 PM
  • Mort. I HAVE ALL ENTER SHIKARI 5D HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH ITS HAPPENED
    August 2 06:02 PM
  • MervTheDemonSlayer Yeah but remember once again that I'm harder than the russian winter, besides if you ban me for no specific reason 2 other verm accounts will appear, I' m the hydra
    August 2 11:47 AM
  • TheEpic7thVermicide Yeah, but remember, I'm harder than russian winter
    July 30 03:33 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Ha yeah it was hard to stay away from an active discussion about one of my favorite albums, even if I haven't listened in over a year and it's all just from memory. Plus it's mainly their 00's ones I'm sick of
    July 22 05:18 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Haha I actually bookmarked their page a while ago and happened to have gone through my bookmarked recs earlier today, and that was one of the bands I downloaded so will listen soon!
