  • TalonsOfFire A creator of anything, like music, will always have something over a critic, because in the end they made something after all. And yea Ethereal Shroud rules
    September 22 12:25 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That's awesome, I got the new Neurosis and Meshuggah early that way
    September 21 08:44 PM
  • TalonsOfFire How'd you hear Kodama? You reviewing it for another site or something?
    September 21 04:39 PM
  • BallsDeep just dropping a shout to say you've got, excuse me, some damn fine taste in music my man, ill be working my way through your top rated/lists to check stuff I haven't heard yet. Stay classy
    September 12 11:07 AM
  • Spag I'm sure it'll grow on me, hopefully. I can tell you this now I enjoyed it more than the new Kataonia on first listen so that's a plus in its own right. I'm actually surprised you like it as much as you did because you always seemed to have mixed feelings on his work lol. Also I STILL have to listen to your album AND remember next month is very important... 40 Watt Sun and Mithras. :]
    September 3 11:29 PM
  • Spag Nice! I've been counting down the days for this no lie. I also have to listen to the new Thy Catafalque on the same day. It shall be pretty interesting. I'm expecting both albums to be a 8/10 at the worst for me. Also, I need to listen to that Devin Townsend album again because I wasn't pleased on the first listen. The second half of the album did absolutely nothing for me.
    September 3 05:08 PM
  • Spag Dude holy s*** how did you hear the new ITW? Promo?
    September 2 10:20 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Dude. DUDE. Mother****ing Moonsorrow and Saor in the same year!? I cannot handle the epicnnneeeeessssssaaaahhhh!!!
    September 1 05:43 PM
  • Gmork89 Like the new Devin album? I didn't know you were a fan.
    September 1 02:06 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Finally checked out that new track of yours you linked me too. So good.
    August 26 10:14 AM
  • Spag I still need to hear your previous one lol. I have actually seen your album in a lot of charts on 4chan and whatnot lol. I don't think most people are aware that you have an active Sputnik account lol.Also I can only hope your new one has some slams!
    July 26 07:29 PM
  • Spag Yup. I loved 40 Watt Suns debut and this caught me by surprise lol. That new Mithras will slay no doubt. I have 4 albums to listen in September too lol. In the woods, Opeth, Devin Townsend and Thy Catafalque. Hoping I love all these since the new Katatonia album I disliked heavily. :[
    July 26 06:33 PM
  • Spag Nice Ocean Machine rating by the way, that's a top 10 for me personally. And that Katatonia album rating couldn't be more accurate. That album was a infuriating disappointment.
    July 26 12:00 PM
  • Spag Had to take a jab at you when I added Wider than the Sky to the database good sir lol. I just about shat when I saw the album post on FB. The new Mithras comes out a week after this album by the way. Any of these has potential to be my AOTY. :]
    July 26 11:57 AM
  • Sevengill Ah, cool. Thanks! I've released so many albums lately I forget who I have and haven't pitched them to, haha.
    July 17 12:59 AM
  • Sevengill Dark, have I bothered you about Dzo-nga yet? It'd go nicely with Ethereal Shroud in a playlist.
    July 16 01:03 AM
  • Sevengill Thanks for the album. Def wasn't a favor rating, it deserves it. The builds are gorgeous and feel natural, even if the vocals took me some time to warm up to. Awesome stuff. You've gotten a decent following, too.
    July 12 08:02 AM
  • PortalofPerfection ****in sweet man, solid plan. Gonna be good stuff for sure.
    July 9 01:54 AM
  • PortalofPerfection Okay :[ thanks for giving it a go! Got any new music you're close to finished with?
    July 6 09:49 PM
  • blacklightjer :]
    July 6 04:13 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Nice 5 for Jumalten :]Which reminds me, I really think you should give Sojourner another chance. I know you didn't much care for Heratige of the Natural Realm but Empires of Ash is really good, worth checking.
    July 4 10:23 AM
  • blacklightjer I
    June 24 03:58 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Dude i NEVER would've guessed you'd 4 Astronoid lol surprising me again man lol. It's great stuff. Sounds super fresh as far a metal goes.
    June 22 08:15 PM
  • parksungjoon hey no fair, i haven't been here much recently
    June 19 11:02 AM
  • parksungjoon no pls dont stop reviewing :[
    June 19 10:15 AM
  • Gmork89 Ah man how come???
    June 11 06:58 PM
  • Gmork89 You should review Astronoid bud, I'd be interested to see your write up on it.
    June 10 11:14 PM
  • PortalofPerfection You know I went and checked out The Howling Void, and I saw that you have it a 1.5. When I first fired it up I thought damn this actually pretty good, why did Noctus hate it so much?After going through a few minutes of a few tracks I realized there's a high-pitched (and pretty s***ty sounding) chorus in the background ALL THE TIME! I mean I don't know if that's why you hated it but that s*** got annoying REAL quick lol. Shame because there's it seems pretty solid otherwise.
    May 23 12:02 AM
  • Sevengill https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFYlxh9Y63Y It's in the news section now. Thanks!
    May 17 05:03 PM
  • Sevengill dark I'd like your opinion on something. I'm finishing a blackened ambient project and could use some feedback. any chance you've got 40 minutes lying around?
    May 16 02:15 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Btw, what did you think of that 2.5 review? :\
    April 22 04:08 PM
  • PortalofPerfection I definitely hear the influence, especially in your longest songs. Good place to look for inspiration haha! But yeah, 20 years and 7 albums later and Moonsorrow are still killing it. Mimisbrunn is just...****ing...WOW
    April 21 10:20 PM
  • PortalofPerfection See here is where our tastes converge 100%. Jumalten Aika is mother****ing astouding. I'd like to see something top this year. I wager it can't be done.
    April 3 04:09 PM
  • blatho blatho.
    February 27 12:37 AM
  • Hawks Ok yeah that Hyperion album is the best thing ever.
    February 25 12:38 PM
  • Hawks Will do buddy! I'll give it a listen tomorrow at work.
    February 24 07:13 PM
  • Wizard http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=201024
    January 24 12:53 PM
  • Wizard Thought I would give you a heads up for my top 20 of 2015 (sorry, a bit behind this year). You will want to see it, trust me! I will give you a link when I finish.
    January 9 07:43 PM
  • Hawks Just posted my end of the year list bro. I think you'll be happy with number 14. ;]
    December 4 05:09 PM
  • PlatonicMushroom Looking forward to it [:
    November 22 06:39 PM
  • PlatonicMushroom That song you released last week was pretty good. Any estimation as to when the full album is out?
    November 22 05:55 PM
  • TalonsOfFire thx, sent it
    November 20 04:06 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Hey dude can you give my Abigail Williams review a look in the proofreading thread when you get a chance?
    November 20 03:27 PM
  • jesterhead92 Good to hear! You've definitely gotten a new fan in me, I liked your facebook page so I can keep track of upcoming tunes.
    October 24 11:55 AM
  • jesterhead92 That's kind of awesome, it's really good for a joke album haha. It kind of amazes me that you achieved such a massive sound with such basic means, I feel inspired! Do have a kit or are the drums programmed?
    October 23 12:48 PM
  • jesterhead92 With* the second one, typo~
    October 22 10:29 PM
  • jesterhead92 It looks like it's available on Hell's Headbangers. I like the first album too but dang, you outdid yourself by a good margin worth the second one. Could I inquire about what software and equipment you use? I'd like to try my hand at doing some solo stuff and I'm not really sure where to start.
    October 22 10:28 PM
  • jesterhead92 Jammed your latest album twice today and I mean it when I say that I loved it. I'm going to buy the CD tomorrow.
    October 22 06:25 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I like pretty much all bm, and what you're doing sounds awesome, am excited to hear!
    October 20 10:38 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Less necro? So you're making a Sunbather ripoff?? haha jk that sounds really cool, I only asked about genrebending out of curiosity, I'm a sucker for that stuff
    October 20 08:50 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Interesting, is it going to genrebend at all?
    October 20 08:37 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I can't even imagine doing that, spending eight years on something and writing and playing all the instruments myself, and it even being good, it's pretty damn impressive. I'm sure it takes forever, and whenever you make more im excited to hear it, keep up the great work!
    October 20 08:00 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That makes sense, and good to hear you concentrating on music since Falling Ash was one of the best black metal albums of the year
    October 20 07:27 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I was going to anyway, but you're not reviewing anymore? Any particular reason?
    October 20 07:14 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Hey Noc you gonna review the new Abigail Williams?
    October 20 07:07 PM
  • Hawks Not a problem at all brother!
    October 19 11:31 AM
  • osmark86 time for some Ethereal Shroud again. juicy stuff indeed.
    October 19 09:06 AM
  • Hawks Just got done with my first spin bro and holy s*** this rules. You're talented dude, excited to see where you go from here. I currently have it as number 18 on my top 25 metal albums of 2015 so far after just one listen. :]
    October 18 11:11 PM
  • Hawks About to give it a full listen now! Will report back with a rating when I'm done. :]
    October 18 10:44 PM
  • Hawks Not in full bro, but I sampled the first track and it sounds amazing. Gonna give it a full go either tonight or tomorrow.
    October 18 07:22 PM
  • bnelso55 That sounds great! I hope you get there. I'm sure the results will be excellent. You've already managed to capture solid guitar and drum sounds. Ethereal shroud getting the studio treatment would be top notch. I can understand recording the vocals in a place where you're in your element. I think that would be challenging to get an honest performance in a studio when you're not comfortable with the surroundings. Im concerned about that part of my music too.
    October 16 09:34 PM
  • bnelso55 Glad to hear the living situation has improved. Wow, that album is even more impressive to me now that I consider all the barriers and limitations you overcame. Haha it also probably means I really have no excuse. With a label backing you, do you think you'll be able to make it into a studio for the next record, or are you content with where you're at?
    October 16 04:32 PM
  • bnelso55 Thank you! I will certainly do that. It's a similar situation, where I've been mulling over the same material for 6-7 years and I've come to that "now or never" phase. I'm hoping to record some definitive versions of the music as soon as I can afford to do so. Everything I have recorded up to this point is lacking quality-wise, to say the least. If the final result is even halfway as successful as "...Falling Ash", I'd be thrilled.
    October 16 04:15 PM
  • bnelso55 Wow. After all of that you should be proud! Man, that's has to be a great feeling. That makes me happy for you, a little envious too. :) Hopefully one day I can feel the same way.
    October 16 03:49 PM
  • bnelso55 I'm really not surprised to hear that. The best music it seems either occurs in an instant or evolves over the course of many years. I feel like I can hear the blood, sweat, and tears that went into creating "They Became the Falling Ash".
    October 16 03:40 PM
  • bnelso55 Oh, and yeah, I know exactly what you mean. Even if I'm not committing anything to tape, I'm always kicking ideas around in my head. Sometimes it just takes time.
    October 16 03:09 PM
  • bnelso55 I'm thoroughly impressed by the latest Ethereal Shroud! Even after just one listen, I think I can say that it is your best work to date. I found myself completely enthralled at multiple points throughout the record, especially during the latter parts of "Look Upon the Light" and "Echoes in the Snow". Congratulations. What an accomplishment.
    October 16 03:09 PM
  • bnelso55 Please do! I enjoy the work you've done thus far. Right now I actually feel kind of stupid that I did not make the connection that you are Ethereal Shroud. I recognize the artwork for "They Became the Falling Ash" and I've seen the title appearing in the comments thread and I just never got around to checking it out. I will most certainly give it a listen now. I'm excited and glad to see you're still creating music!
    October 16 02:21 PM
  • bnelso55 Hey Noctus! Just stopping by to say I revisited "Starlight's Guide" recently and realized I had never really congratulated you properly on its release. The music is excellent, man. "Illuminance" is probably my favorite track, but I've added the whole EP to my "autumn playlist" and it'll be in regular rotation as the seasons change. Cheers!
    October 16 11:04 AM
  • Hawks Also, idk what happened or who's being negative towards you here, but **** them dude. You've been here for a long time and are a great user and reviewer. Don't let these idiots around here bring you down. You're a good guy buddy.
    October 16 09:44 AM
  • Hawks Yesssss! It's about time. ;] Will jam hard bro.
    October 16 09:41 AM
  • Deviant. I took a look and the person in question doesn't stick out as a "problem user". I even looked at some of your other reviews and couldn't find any consistent pattern either. Sorry dude
    October 16 02:22 AM
  • Atari Didn't realize people have been negative towards u outside of the negs, that's lame. I can't convince u to keep reviewing but I can say I hope I still see u around these parts because I respect your opinion on music. When I first started getting into bm on this site you and Kyle are two of the users I looked to the most to help me discover new music.... Even tho I don't really talk to u guys much at all lol.
    October 15 09:04 PM
  • minty901 It's odd but I wouldn't dwell on it. I see nothing wrong with the review at all, it hits on all the key points and is plenty concise yet descriptive. The album finally hit UK iTunes so I got it in (relatively) decent quality now. First track is better than I remember from the video so I'm looking forward to the rest.
    October 15 08:55 PM
  • Atari no worries man, I hope my comments don't make matters worse, but I just had to speak out when I saw how quickly the negs were piling on. and I really do dig your music too : ] the new ethereal shroud ruled, gonna be revisiting and re-rating it here pretty soon
    October 15 07:16 PM
  • Hawks Sweet def let me know bro! m/
    October 10 02:54 PM
  • Hawks Yesssss! When is that gonna happen bud?
    October 10 10:36 AM
  • minty901 so hideous album is streaming in full on their facebook fyi
    October 10 03:52 AM
  • Hawks I'll have to look into it bro, never heard of them before.
    September 25 12:11 PM
  • minty901 thats so cool. the new track is really great but not sure if it blows their previous album out the water or anything. its a lot more orchestral which is really cool. yeah im pretty excited about this band now.
    September 24 03:54 PM
  • minty901 I checked out So Hideous's first full-length and it's so my kind of thing I love it. It's what I wished for Deafheaven's Sunbather to sound like. Thanks again.
    September 24 09:21 AM
  • minty901 oh man that song was awesome. like an angrier version of for my parents. how did you find out about them?
    September 24 04:09 AM
  • TalonsOfFire i can respect that :)
    September 23 03:36 PM
  • TalonsOfFire it's interesting that you freely admit that you have poor taste, though i'm assuming as a result of all the users reactions as ive seen all over the site, which is why i asked
    September 23 03:11 PM
  • TalonsOfFire oh ok
    September 23 03:02 PM
  • TalonsOfFire so what's the deal with your ratings
    September 23 02:17 PM
  • minty901 the dissonant guitar melody right at the end of the title track is a stroke of genius. its a really good song but im struggling to get excited over the album as a whole. probably just arcs of command and the title track that im ever gonna be compelled to go back to. i know you dont agree, but i finally got round to checking out envy's latest album and for me that blows caspians album out of the water. also with the dear hunter coming out recently... i feel ive got better stuff to distract me.
    September 19 06:37 PM
  • minty901 also there is way too much modulation on so many of the guitar melodies. makes me feel sea sick. and some of the melodies just dont repeat in a way that is satisfying to me. but i love the heaviness of some of the tracks and i do think it has some of their most interesting ideas in it. the last track is excellent, especially the off-key lead guitar near the end that sounds so heartbreaking. i need more time with it because its not grabbing me. have you listened to it yet? (its streaming online)
    September 17 02:08 PM
  • minty901 re: the caspian album. oh man i dont know. intellectually there is a lot to like about it. its experimental (for them) and tries some cool things. but some things fall flat for me. the downtempo song with vocals does nothing to me. the penultimate track is too dry and nothingy. but i totally get what theyre going for. i like these little "experiments" of like really rough acoustics mixed in with an ambient album and stuff like that. theyre great ideas executed in kind of a "meh" way for me.
    September 17 02:05 PM
  • bach had no idea you were ethereal shroud. decided to check it out and it slaps hella hard man. seriously one of my favorites from this year.
    September 17 01:44 AM
  • Spag Aaaaaah. I need to revisit TLTS. I listened FTM album last night and I dig it. Gonna take time to digest it more now. I only have 3 more albums I'm waiting on luckily, Thy Catafalque, Mithras and Borknagar. This is the best year of music since 2011 for me. Really surprised with a lot of great albums honestly :]
    September 12 05:02 PM
  • Spag It just leaked today actually lol. I was checking getmetal daily until it did! I'm gonna listen to it later at night, I'm certain it'll be a 4 or more for me.
    September 11 10:57 PM
  • Spag Ahhh sweet, I have been loving these guys lately. Same goes for My Dying Bride, "A Map of all our Failures" is becoming an all time favorite and I'm about to listen to Feel the Misery in a bit. Hoping for the best because I loved "And My Father Left Forever". ;]
    September 11 10:06 PM
  • Spag Is it bad that The Light In The Weed made me all teary eyed? That outro...
    September 11 09:12 PM
  • StarlessCore aight, wht abt some straight kvlt then thats good too

  • Jacquibim Do you still have the DR10 version of TFP, I know you say it doesn't sound much better but I'm still morbidly curious.

    July 24 12:12 AM
  • PortalofPerfection I'm looking forward to any new stuff from you.So I saw your soundoff for We Lost the Sea, did you like it?
    July 22 11:24 PM
  • PortalofPerfection What's your next project?
    July 10 01:09 AM
  • Hawks Hahahaha I know bro I really need to.
    July 4 06:18 PM

    July 4 05:11 PM
  • PortalofPerfection K if you say so :pHaven't seen you review in a while, got anything cooking?
    July 2 09:19 PM
  • PortalofPerfection And my judgement of your taste fails again lol. C'mon it's like...Saor Caladan Brood how do you not...lol I give up :p
    July 1 07:28 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Dood your CD is so pretty :D :D :DBtw, you gotta check this out. Like right now. I may not understand your taste but I can guaran-****ing-tee you will love this. m/m/m/https://sojournermetal.bandcamp.com/releases
    July 1 01:49 AM
  • Spag Oh that's awesome, their new one should easily be in my top 10 then : ) I'm very very happy with 2015 so far music wise, can't say the same for 2014 sadly.
    June 25 02:36 PM
  • Spag Yes! They grew on me pretty fast and I'm glad they did as I'm normally not big on death metal. :) I still need to check out their first album and if I have heard right I THINK they'll have a new album this year.
    June 25 12:49 PM
  • Spag DUDE DUDE DUDE.MITHRAS ARE AWESOME.
    June 25 07:04 AM
  • Gameofmetal ooooooh that Shape of Despair 5 huh? Got that s*** bookmarked for later, think it'll be pretty sweet now.
    June 9 05:18 PM
  • joitp Just saw you 5'd the new Shape of Despair... mmm knowing your legendary strict ratings I really have to check it out!
    June 8 02:55 PM
  • AlphaBetaFoxface Dude! Just found out about Ethereal Shroud! They Became the Falling Ash is absolutely banging! Keep it up!
    June 3 01:00 AM
  • Spag Haha, I'm still deciding my favorite track on here. I'm really fond of tracks like Game Over, Pale, Crashland, Angst etc. This album was something I've been waiting for since 2011 and I'm very satisfied with the way it came out. The production doesn't even bother me anymore either (wasn't too fond of the drum sound at first but now it's ok for me).
    May 7 06:35 PM
  • Spag Whoa! Glad you like the Arcturus album man. I didn't think you quite dig it. I'm actually pretty relieved lol.
    May 6 10:20 PM
  • Gameofmetal Request sent. Sorry I don't look as black metal as you hehe
    May 5 08:59 PM
  • VisionsFromTheDarkSide I had no idea that They Became the Falling Ash was a user-made album, such is its quality. Seriously good job man, probably my favourite release of 2015 so far!
    May 2 04:32 PM
  • Spag Ahh I see. Hopefully so then! Personally, there's no way in hell I won't love this album lol. Same goes for the Arcturus for me. :)
    May 2 03:04 AM
  • Spag https://soundcloud.com/officialinsideoutmusic/leprous-rewind/s-F8zxhHere's the new Leprous song dude! (Much better than the first one they released imo) :)
    May 2 02:06 AM
  • Wizard That Emuul album....holy s*** that's some good stuff to vibe to.
    April 29 09:37 PM
  • PortalofPerfection yus. keep me posted.
    April 29 12:20 AM
  • PortalofPerfection Seriously though, let me know when you have physical merc available cause I want some.
    April 29 12:17 AM
  • PortalofPerfection Speaking of passionate, don't know why I've never thought to rec you this before but I think there's a decent chance you will really like this. Wrote the review a while back, not terribly good, but the album sure is. Give it a shot, I think it's either gonna sound ridiculous or you're gonna love it.http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/61162/Darkflight-Closure/
    April 29 12:08 AM
  • PortalofPerfection Just saw the comment you posted about the equipment you used for falling ash. lol wtf proof you don't need money to move souls.
    April 28 11:58 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Dude I didn't know Ethereal Shroud was you! ****ing amazing man, I'm blown away
    April 28 12:32 AM
  • Wizard And lower your score for new Drudkh. It's so bad that I have nothing to say about it.
    April 25 09:23 PM
  • Wizard Your dig is one of the most underrated death/ doom bands in existence.
    April 25 09:23 PM
  • Hawks Sweet I'll look into it tonight dude.
    April 15 03:55 PM
  • Hawks Don't got a computer bro. Can't afford one at the moment haha.
    April 15 02:59 PM
  • Hawks I know dude it's hard to do on my phone, I have to use Spotify. :[
    April 15 02:22 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot there's a new Sulphur Aeon alb out in case you're curious (saw you 4d their last)
    April 5 02:32 AM
  • Ignimbrite Whoa, awesome. When do you think it's gonna drop?
    March 30 08:18 PM
  • Spag Crazy thing is, there's 12 tracks on The Congregation and it might clock near around 70 minutes. I promised myself I wouldn't listen to a single track until I got the cd in the mail lol.
    March 30 06:59 PM
  • Spag Noctussssss new Leprous out in late May / early June! You stoked? :o
    March 30 06:16 AM
  • Ignimbrite I meant every word, man. It's a seriously awesome piece of music.
    March 29 10:36 PM
  • joitp Your new album has become the soundtrack of most of my mountain walks, what a fantastic piece of music you've created! Now I'm only dreaming of a vinyl release...

  • ExplosiveOranges Holy ****, dude, great job on the new Ethereal Shroud album.
    March 15 11:52 AM
  • cryptside I'm really glad you like the review, it's always a little scarier when you know the person that created the music is reading what you're writing haha.
    March 14 07:58 PM
  • cryptside Posted. :]
    March 14 04:51 PM
  • cryptside My review is shaping to be one of my one-paragraphers; I hope you don't mind. I just cut a lot of stuff where I was repeating myself over and over.
    March 14 03:06 PM
  • cryptside Hey man, got some thoughts written down on the album. Will be up on Saturday at the latest. :)
    March 13 12:49 AM
  • Hawks Gonna jam when I'm done with the new Leviathan. m/

  • Hawks I just read a soundoff for it actually. I'll check it out bud.
    March 12 07:08 PM
  • Atari man, echoes in the snow is incredible. really nice job on the new album!
    March 11 06:02 PM
  • cryptside I would love to review it, man! Give me a few days to process my thoughts and it will be up. It's really great stuff, one of my favorites from this year.
    March 11 01:25 PM
  • elcrawfodor Hey man, just wanted to say that I checked out your new album and bought it before I was even finished with the first stream, incredible stuff. Will definitely couple that album with some midnight walks soon
    March 8 03:46 PM
  • Gameofmetal That's pretty interesting. Glad it worked out after all.
    March 6 10:42 AM
  • Gameofmetal 4 days vs. 8 years on the next one right? How exactly did that work out?
    March 6 10:36 AM
  • Gameofmetal Np ;) I'll check out your first record soon enough.
    March 6 10:32 AM
  • Gameofmetal Just finished listening to your new album, sweet stuff man. Really nice job. Actually I'm of half a mind to review it if there's no one already planning to do so.
    March 6 10:14 AM
  • Wizard Can you help me find a new link to the new Enslaved album? Not a stream, rar please.
    March 4 07:07 AM
  • Archelirion Aw damn, seen you gave the new A Forest of Stars album a 2.0 :/ Waiting on my copy to arrive before listening, is it that disappointing?
    March 2 01:01 PM
  • osmark86 well I'll be damned. new Ethereal Shroud ey? gotta get on that.
    March 1 12:52 PM
  • Wizard You should be proud you did an album of that calibre by yourself. I simply love those almost-symphonic moments when the black metal just comes screaming out of the blue from the quieter sections. Still gonna give your first album a listen ; ).
    February 27 01:46 PM
  • Wizard http://www.sputnikmusic.com/soundoff.php?albumid=183817
    February 25 10:06 PM
  • CaptainDooRight koo thanks bro will def check when i can
    February 24 10:31 AM
  • Wizard I want to review it so badly but once again, time is against me.And check out "Massive Conspiracy Against All Man", now that's Wrest's best work.
    February 23 08:15 PM
  • Wizard And I ****ing love it hahaha. I got really baked and put it on last night....love spacing out to atmospheric bm. Also, I've had a promo for new Leviathan and it rules pretty hard.
    February 23 08:12 PM
  • Wizard Why did it mean so much to you? Is it your band?
    February 23 08:06 PM
  • emester Sweet. Actually checked and managed to find a leak however. Dont really feel that bad bout it since im planning on buying this on cd or eventually wax
    February 22 02:28 PM
  • emester New Leviathan leaked? How is it?
    February 22 02:14 PM
  • Crysis ooooo yeah i definitely will
    February 22 12:25 PM
  • Bombastus Yo, bro, could you rec me some doom? I'm currently listening to Shape of Despair and MDB a lot. Contrasting elements - piano, violin, synths - are mandatory.
    February 2 07:18 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Whoa bro, sounds really good. I love that clean drop too and the progressions taken from there. I really wanna listen to it again through a good stereo system.
    February 2 01:46 PM
  • thacoconut94 Okay man cheers
    January 18 08:31 AM
  • thacoconut94 Your dig, would you say it sways more towards death or black? Looking for something to spin but with blackened death I'm fussy cause I much prefer the pair separate for more clarity
    January 17 11:17 AM
  • pedro70512 awyes. this looks like fun. do we /really/ have to wait four months? ughh
    January 6 01:09 AM
  • pedro70512 Hey Noctus. You gotten a chance to listen to the whole album yet?
    January 5 08:10 AM
  • CaptainDooRight I wouldn't worry about it, I'm just glad ur making music, good music, keep up the great work ur very talented
    December 29 10:09 PM
  • CaptainDooRight sounds pretty solid, not a fan of the drum tone but i can look past it
    December 29 12:08 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Thanks Joe, will def check
    December 29 02:55 AM
  • pedro70512 Noctus I need your name to credit you on the album broseph
    December 12 07:49 AM
  • johnnydeking29 Oh, it was an album of rerecordings? Which albums had the originals?
    November 20 07:48 PM
  • johnnydeking29 Hey dude, just discovered Kauan through their new album; could you explain what you found average about, and what you like about their past work?
    November 20 11:22 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man, giving you a heads up that I posted that Grouper review since you asked
    October 28 11:15 AM
  • CaptainDooRight yeah man def enjoyed the music aspect quite a bit, I look forward to your future works and I feel privileged to be able to associate with you
    October 27 11:37 AM
  • CaptainDooRight def enjoying the ethereal shroud album but what's really holding me back in the drums, its not that they're programmed but it was the chosen compositions for them, they just feel out of place and subtracting from the music, which is really good. It's taking me a while to digest because of that. I'm trying though. I worked out to it a few days ago as well.
    October 23 02:12 PM
  • BigPleb cheers buddy :]
    October 21 10:12 AM
  • BigPleb Thanks a lot! Never been a huge BM advocate but need to give the genre a chance tbh.
    October 21 10:09 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yeah, I just came off an awful writer's block, so I do feel like it turned out a little rough around the edges. Rest assured, though, I aim to cut down on the amount of irrelevant content with my intros in my next review and so on.
    October 19 09:46 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Gotcha, thanks man. Yeah I could whittle things down a bit. I've got a review for the new Grouper album in the works, and I'll try and adjust it a bit based off what you said.
    October 19 07:48 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hey man, just saw your comment on my Winterfylleth review. You were pretty right about the whole filler intro, and I'll be sure to avoid doing that in the future. Thanks for all the feedback.
    October 19 07:05 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot cheers. I guess if you're particularly bored in the next little while, maybe scope out a handful of my more recent revs and shout box me any shortcomings you might notice in my writing? Just general stuff, I don't need an in depth proofread or anything. Any help is appreciated man, and I'm always willing to improve. *No rush* whatsoever though
    October 19 05:31 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man, I've seen to offer criticisms on a few reviews and was wondering if I could get a bit of input if you have a moment
    October 19 05:13 PM
  • CaptainDooRight so let me ask you, why is it you're keeping your identity confidential with ES? do you not want people to know its you? just curious because I have no problem honoring that. I was thinking of putting it on one of my recommended albums list
    October 17 02:22 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Loving the Ethereal Shroud album! I'm thinking somewhere between 3.5-4.
    October 17 12:13 PM
  • ComeToDaddy hey Noct, just wondering if you were going to review Sines? I'd love to put one together, but you're Sputnik's resident Jakob fan so you definitely get first review dibs. I'll just archive it until you've posted yours if so (:
    October 15 04:42 PM
  • CaptainDooRight still digesting it, and how about that new Jakob!
    October 15 10:08 AM
  • CaptainDooRight im sure you had to be in 'the zone' to get that quality out, im still absorbing it which is a good thing
    October 2 04:42 PM
  • CaptainDooRight very well done! im proud of you!
    October 2 03:41 PM
  • CaptainDooRight is Ethereal Shroud a one man effort
    October 2 11:06 AM
  • CaptainDooRight thanks Noctus, the bandcamp link should be fine for me. But I'll def consider contributing. Great work man!
    October 1 04:24 PM
  • CaptainDooRight ';]' random, well that's a new face I haven't seen before lol. Well great job and I think I have it figured out now for the most part ;]. Gonna check the rest of the tracks on bandcamp and def looking forward to new material. Keep going hard bro!
    October 1 09:46 AM
  • osmark86 I've heard Woman is the Earth and I dig it. very "organic" stuff with plenty of feels. what did you think of it?
    October 1 03:51 AM
  • osmark86 sounds awesome man, excited for the release! what is your black metal project called? I want to check it out. working a bit on a doomy/bm release myself, but knowing me it'll take a long ass time before I'm near completion. baby steps, baby steps.
    October 1 03:51 AM
  • CaptainDooRight I listened to the song. It's amazing! But, you said guess who it is. Is it you? Maybe I'm a little confused.
