|Jams of an Aeon|
These are the only good albums to have ever been made in the history of music
Or at the very least, in the history of things I've jammed in the last 30 days.
No recs or I'll hunt you down and beat you with a butter sock.
Flowers From Exile
Apocalyptic Martial folk, as branded by the band themselves. Odd terminology aside, this rules. It's beautiful, melancholic, theatrical yet reserved. Overall it's a wonderfully diverse album especially given it's rather limiting genre (Neofolk, i.e Sol Invictus, Death in June). Swords to Rust and Secret Sons of Europe are fucking GOAT.
This hit when is was 14 and it slaps hard as ever now. Alexisonfire were, in my humble opinion, a shining beacon of individuality and craftmanship, and they managed the balance between wicked catchy hooks and genuine uniqueness quite well.
An Envy of Innocence
This is...some rather disjointed, slightly off the wall mid 2000s melodeath/metalcore. Chugs heavy enough to level cities meet beastly guttural and transition into speedball shreds and random...bass drops? Some of the experimental moments dont entirely work but everything else here is impressively destructive and cathartic. Overall I give this 0 points would be better as 8 bit
The Difference Between Hell and Home
If I dont listen to Counterparts at least once a month otherwise I will go into shock.
Still its surprising that I haven't listened to this in...oof maybe a year? Maybe 2? Regardless its still one of the most magical post hardcore records ever and hot fucking damn did I never realize how fucking gnarly the blast beat shred section off Slave was. Rips.
Where the Gloom Becomes Sound
I love this and I love Tribulation. They pull together an image of vampires seeking prey on a cool Autumnal night, of evil spirits crawling from their musty crypts, of cretins clamoring en masse. Overall they scream Halloween in all of it's fun, if slightly corny glory. If you liked Down Below you will love this, as it expands more on the increasing goth influences that showed up on Down Below.
|There were more albums but Sput decided I wasn't allowed to submit my list this morning so here's my lazy half baked attempt. |
How yall doing these days
|havent heard 3 but i bet the other antagonist is way better|
|Alexisonfire got me into post hardcore when i was like 12/13 and i still think of them pretty fondly |
dont ever listen to anything not off the self titled tho. that shit is raw and slaps. after that its hit and miss
|bought old crows when it first came out and that is pre much my only real alexisonfire experience|
|Yay for Tribulation!|
| Watch Out is easily my favorite but the s/t is a lot more unhinged. 44 Caliber Love Letter is like top 10 Alexisonfire|
|Also please do not mind the random spelling and grammatical errors I wrote this on a rather rocky bus ride after work|
|Watch Out is fucking awesome, I used to have Control on repeat back in the day. 4 slaps too|
