  • Trifolium Thanks! That's the exact info she could use in her quest. Appreciated! Sput is so nice for this, you've got contacts from all over the world this way. Including neighbours!

  • Trifolium Hi kalk! I've got a question for you. A friend of mine is looking for a cheap place to buy Club-Mate fizzy drinks in Germany. Do you know supermarkets for instance that have a high chance of selling them, preferably close to NL? Would be appreciated!

  • Relinquished it did get the vinyl treatment recently so maybe it will get added to it soon.

  • MarsKid Damn, that couldn't be further off. Eskapist was their best yet and a near 5. Opening trio is among their best run of songs and "Lysios" is probably their crowning achievement. It was the best progression of their sound to that point and showed how far they could push themselves. There's so little of that creative drive in here; it's a very streamlined sound where songs rarely progress anywhere, any 'zaniness' feels tacked on, and there's a lack of the variety that made them stand out.
    May 8 02:39 PM
  • MarsKid I am unfortunately getting next to nothing out of this. They've essentially purged out the elements that made them special, and in the context of Eskapist, this just sounds so incredibly dry...
    May 8 02:15 PM
  • MarsKid Well I plan on reviewing it, so I'll be giving it several shots. I'll let you know how I feel!
    May 8 12:39 PM
  • MarsKid Thought it was solid at best, came across as a bit of a retread for me. But yeah, definitely their best so far. Not enough to win me back though.
    April 30 03:55 AM
  • MarsKid Sure did. How you feeling about it?
    April 29 11:52 PM
  • MarsKid Yeah, I checked their first single again too and I really don't like it much at all anymore. Turns out it was a warning sign: They're toning themselves down and streamlining their sound. Really hope those are the low points of the album.

  • MarsKid New Hirsch single is... unfortunately concerning.
    April 3 01:02 PM
  • MarsKid I found them through the Hirsch Effekt. Two different German bands, but they play some awesome alt/prog rock with a hefty kick to their sound.
    March 24 04:38 PM
  • MarsKid Oh yeah, they haven't let me down yet, so I don't think they'll do so here. You ever jam The Intersphere?
    March 24 04:12 PM
  • MarsKid It's weird, and I'm worried it's a sign of more to come. Very different bands, but Rammstein declined once they started having more and more English I feel...
    March 24 04:02 PM
  • MarsKid Yeeeaaaaahhh it's a strange one. That main riff is heavy though.
    March 24 03:43 PM
  • MarsKid Thoughts on Hirsh Effekt's newest single? Heard it a while ago, think it grew on me.
    March 24 01:11 PM
  • Titan kalk dude that's my favorite progressive metal song in recent times......nice and loud with a good set of cans makes it even better
    December 27 09:02 PM
  • sizeofanocean Hey, tut mir leid aber schaffe heute wohl doch nicht. Hatte vergessen noch ein Ticket zu kaufen und ich muss heute leider einige Dinge hinter mich bringen, die ich laenger schon vor mich hin geschoben habe :( Ich behalte definitiv weitere Konzerte im Auge, zu denen man gehen koennte. Irgendwann schaffen wir es
    November 5 01:05 PM
  • sizeofanocean Jo, das letzte Album ist eher Prog als Post Metal, daher dürfte es denke ich bei dir recht schnell klicken
    October 28 10:53 AM
  • sizeofanocean Kurz zur Info: Die eröffnen für Leprous an dem Tag
    October 28 09:04 AM
  • sizeofanocean Coole Sache. Magst du eig. auch The Ocean? Hab bisher nur das erste Album gehoert und obwohl ich Post Metal Fan bin fand ich das so naja. Die Schnippsel die ich vom Pelagial Album gehört habe, haben mir wesentlich besser gefallen
    October 28 09:04 AM
  • sizeofanocean Hey, hast du dich schon entschieden bzgl. Leprous am 05.11? Ich werde auf jeden fall hingehen, waere cool mal einen Sputniker irl zu sehen
    September 24 01:15 PM
  • sizeofanocean Ja genau. Leprous war auch in meiner Aufzählung, nur scheisst Sput wieder rein. Soweit ich weiß bist du schon halbwegs ein Leprous stan oder?
    August 12 09:01 PM
  • sizeofanocean Hmm blöd, mein Post wurde nach Deafheaven total abgeschnitten. Jedenfalls noch Black Peaks, Thrice
    August 9 03:22 PM
  • sizeofanocean Jo, kann ich verstehen. Ich hab selber sehr viel um die Ohren, aber das ist mein einziger Lichtblick nächste Woche, sonst sitze ich nur daran, mein Studium bis September zu beenden.Konzerte die noch plane sind (fast alles in Köln glaube ich):Helmet - 13.09Deafheaven
    August 9 03:20 PM
  • sizeofanocean Moin, am 14.08 wäre ja nun das The Contortionist Konzert in Club Volta (Koeln Muehlheim). Tickets sind noch da, hast du Bock mitzukommen?
    August 9 01:07 PM
  • MarsKid They've definitely developed a core sound that is distinctly 'theirs' over the years, but it seems to me every album they release manages to be different. I'm hoping this will be no different!
    July 21 11:07 AM
  • MarsKid I see you're a big Hirsch Effekt fan. Excited for a potential release this year?
    July 19 02:28 PM
  • JokineAugustus Hail Horror Hail is pretty sweet as well. Their music usually takes several listens till you kind of "get it".
    July 17 08:28 PM
  • JokineAugustus Nice Sigh rating!

  • sizeofanocean Hast du dir mal Black Peaks angehört? Die dueften dir gefallen, sind so ziemlich die beste "neue" Post Harcore Band da draußen mit zwei alben, beide 3.9ner auf Sput. Die spielen am 16.10 in Köln, bin mit nem Kollegen dort, wär cool wenn du auch mitkommst(Ach ja und Deafheaven am 07.10 und The Contortionist am 14.08 sind auch vllt nicht uninteressant fuer dich)
    June 26 10:43 AM
  • sizeofanocean Außerdem hab ich diese Woche Tool und Envy gesehen... drei Konzerte würden schon hart ins geld gehen
    June 22 03:47 PM
  • sizeofanocean Ich weiß leider nicht ob ichs schaffe... Hab kein VVK Ticket und ich muss einige nervige Dinge unbedingt vorher erledigt kriegen :/
    June 22 03:44 PM
  • Titan put on your best headphones, turn up the volume, and give it 10 minutes of your time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgH99UlrQag
    May 25 12:36 PM
  • Titan dude, please listen to the two Arch/Matheos records and get familiar with the Fates Warning discography. Right in your wheelhouse my friend...
    May 19 03:39 PM
  • Egarran Seems to have worked too.
    April 24 08:35 AM
  • Egarran 'Exactly'
    April 23 09:46 PM
  • Egarran Beautiful.

  • J() Alexander Just some dude making nightcore, or something like that.
    February 9 07:11 PM
  • J() Alexander Damn, you've already listened to a good amount of Plastic Neesound, lol.
    February 9 06:57 PM
  • J() Alexander Nice. Hope you found them funny at least, that's the reason why I like to search for that kind of stuff.
    January 21 01:06 PM
  • J() Alexander Are you going through some of my 1.0s or something? Lol.

  • DDDeftoneDDD the band was 6Gig - the song Tincan Experiment
    September 5 11:03 AM
  • DDDeftoneDDD yeah it really is...actually part of the lyrics on Return to the Earth is taken from a song from a band they used to listen together (https://genius.com/12603074) "Wasn't technically perfectCould it have been any better?"
    September 5 11:02 AM
  • DDDeftoneDDD btw...I really know what your AVT dog is about and its amazing how much different things sputusers have in common. I hope this site never ends.
    September 4 02:19 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD "I'd say it's about drugs" It is...the whole album is
    September 4 02:17 PM

  • sizeofanocean Saw Leprous
    June 19 09:33 AM
  • sizeofanocean So i've seen you have given Clairvoyant a 4. You're still not up for seeing them in Cologne on 28.06? It's only 18 Euros
    June 15 11:37 AM
  • sizeofanocean Well, give them a listen and tell me how you feel about them later on
    May 16 09:42 PM
  • sizeofanocean I just assumed that based on your taste you would already listen to them. Too bad
    May 16 09:23 PM
  • sizeofanocean Hey Kalk, how's it hanging? Since i know that you live in Bonn i wanted to ask you if you were up for seeing Thrice (12.06) or The Contortionist (28.06) in Cologne. Would be really rad to hang out with you there
    May 15 01:12 PM
  • DDDeftoneDDD ahah dude. Was expecting you answer on my page lol yeah its good for sure, and if you dig these guys and the rest of their discog you will get vibes from them all arround in later bands. They introduced me to a lot of genres in metal. Ill be forever thankfull X)
    April 19 09:20 PM
  • kalkwiese It was great, man! It's still too early for me to rate CtS, but I will probably never listen to Mastodon in my car again. xD It just didn't work. I get quite some Opeth vibes from this, that's a good thing.
    April 19 10:09 AM
  • DDDeftoneDDD Hey man. How was the full headphones experience with Crack the Skye? Got my CS shirt on and remembered to ask you.
