|Marsbro's Recent Digs and Such|
Try as I might, I can't stop exploring music and listening to as much as I can. Here's a bunch of the stuff I've been into recently. Maybe some of it will peak your interest.
Progressive death metal in the vein of Persefone. Awesome, but doesn't have a well-structured purpose or direction at times, which bogs it down.
Do What Thou Wilt.
Rap; would be better if it was trimmed down from it's very long runtime
To Pimp a Butterfly
Tetsuo and Youth
Hip-hop/Rap; amazing how he can release something this amazing and turn around and do something absolutely awful. I love how this record flows through the seasonal instrumental tracks and it has great features.
Rap; like him much more than B.I.G. tbh
Hip-hop that doesn't quite achieve the same hype for me as it seems to for others, but it's still damn fine
Progressive metal firing on all cylinders. These guys are the best.
|8||System of a Down|
Got around to listening to this for the first time in many years and actually enjoyed it much more this time. Glad it clicked.
Rap, featuring a man with a smooth ass voice and sick beats
Pelagial > this if I'm being honest, but both of them are top tier fo sho. Mastodoen-esque heaviness with prog metal tendencies with some metalcore-like songwriting. It works together in a pretty awesome way.
Very solid melodic death metal. Wish they'd get a new album out.
The Rising Tied
I went in with very low expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. Hip-hop/rap that does have some admittedly low low points, but with some very notable high points that can go toe-to-toe with the best. Yeah, it's that guy from Linkin Park, but he's so much better here
Darkness, Oh Hell
Used to not like these vocals, but I grew to love them immensely. Not sure how exactly a human being can possess chords so harsh but bluesy at the same time, but here we are and they work amazingly.
The Marshall Mathers LP
Rap that hardly ever makes compromises, dealing with subjects through a balance of humor and some violent, very serious parts.
Think of a slower Persefone, in all honesty. Awesome prog metal that deserves more attention.
Post rock/math rock that is fucking groovy, catchy, and emotional. It's incredibly addicting and is certainly something I think a wide variety of people would enjoy.
|17||The Fall Of Boss Koala|
Emo paired with post-rock; worth a listen, has some great crescendos combined with very a very passionate delivery.
Industrial-influenced black metal; the experimental tag is thrown on a lot of artists, but you can count on these guys deserving it more than most. It is, at the very least, a very interesting and unique listen that you won't really find elsewhere.
|19||The Brave Little Abacus|
Just Got Back from the Discomfort
Talk about a divisive voice. Indie/emo that incorporates a lot of outside elements to form a product that is both heartfelt and outside the box in its own way.
|20||The Newfound Interest in Connecticut|
Tell Me About the Long Dark Path Home
Melancholic, atmospheric emo/post-rock that's criminally underrated. It's full of feeling and captures your attention from start to finish.
Post rock/metal full of energy and captivating songwriting. Not as generic as some say it is. Comparable to an act like Long Distance Calling, I think.
Screamo/hardcore that goes right for your fucking throat. Maybe not the most ground-breaking or technical or whatever, but it's angry as all hell and will do whatever it can to let you know that.
Lost Ships Sinking With The Sunset
Emo with some post-rock tendencies; they've got a solid discography building up that's worth a listen to any fans of the genre.
Synkopenleben, Nein Danke.
Metalcore/hardcore/emo/etc.; can appeal to many different people. It's a short but chaotic listen.
|26||An Embrace of Angels|
'Ere January Be Unwintered
Post rock/emo with some post-hardcore thrown in the mix; it's got plenty of passion and masterful ambiance. It opens with an epic 17-minute track that's worth every second.
|27||On The Might of Princes|
Where You Are and Where You Want to Be
Emo/post-hardcore; they are the best
|28||On The Might of Princes|
Yes, they are the best
S/o to Ebola for recommending this; very solid melodic death metal that's got plenty of heaviness and riffs to go around. If you think your first half of the year isn't death-metally enough yet, time to tune in.
|30||Macho Man Randy Savage|
Be A Man
Obligatory Randy Savage appearance
