|This Is Huh, Wow|
Albums that blew my mind on first listen
|1||The Speed of Sound In Seawater|
Despite the fact it's only been less than a year since I discovered TSOSIS Red Version has easily become one of my all time favorite albums.
Under Sleeping Waves
A few weeks ago I was searching for some new slowcore and I came across this little gem from 2011; minimalistic and beautiful, this album is a great combination of slowcore and dream pop.
One of my favorite screamo albums, these guys write some really epic stuff with post-rock influences. My favorite thing about the album in particular is the guitar interplay; these guys really know how to work off each other, rarely playing the same thing at once but with one guitar always supplementing the other into absolutely greatness. Seriously their chemistry is amazing.
|4||The Hope and the Failure|
The Lights Are On But This Dance Never Ends
My absolute favorite screamo album ever; vocalist Ina (yes she is female) has some of the gut-wrenching vocals I have ever heard and I feel her pain in every single rasp she lets loose. Musically the album is just as good, featuring an abundance of beautiful clean interludes and really emotional overdriven parts.
Ixnay on the Hombre
I was so young when I first heard this but it's an album that has stayed with me over the years. The songs hear are the perfect combination of pop and The Offspring's trademark grungy hardcore.
The first Opeth album I heard. That pretty much says it all.
We Are Not Alone
I don't care what anyone else thinks, I love Breaking Benjamin and at the time of my hearing this, it was one of first albums I've heard that bridges heaviness with mainstream choruses.
Amazing when I first heard it and still amazing today. Imagine Cynic with a heavier emphasis placed on death metal.
At first just undecipherable noise Swarth has since become a landmark for black/death metal, but insanely technical yet hauntingly atmospheric.
Do I even need an explanation for this?
Hvis Lyest should also be on this but I forgot to make a space for it because it's late and I'm deliriously tired
|cool list, the only album I can say this about is Mono's Hymn to the Immortal Wind. At first listen I knew it was a 5, which is weird because I'm really picky about 5s and stuff, but it was so beautiful and it just floored me. My favorite album of all time.|
|Also, been meaning to check out 2 but I haven't because I have no idea what slowcore is, I've just seen quite a few people praising it.|
|what is slowcore :/|
cool list though, mine would include the offspring as well (smash though) and also atdi and modest mouse
|1 is a masterpiece|
7 is also really good
|Red Version is a 5 listen to it people!|
|I hope you're not disappointed potsy!'|
and slowcore is basically indie based music with very downbeat melodies, really slow tempos and very minimalistic instrumentation.
|6 was the first Opeth album I heard too.|
|I've never heard of slowcore before but learning about a new genre is always a treat!|
|needs elliott smith |
|Never understood why slowcore is called slowcore|
|Glad I haven't let you down potsy :] 1-4 are all solid as fuck so I think you shouls enjoy them all immensely|
|5 6 9 good shit|
|You need to hear 8 metallic|
|yea that description is definitely appealing|
