  • Dinosaur New Liturgy gud?????
    November 17 03:54 PM
  • Arcade issa masterpiece; when should i expect your review?
    November 16 02:04 AM
  • garas Heyyy, check out "Blood Must Be Shed" (1995) by Zyklon-B sometime! Insane raw BM by members of Emperor, Satyricon and Dodheimsgard.
    November 13 09:24 PM
  • garas Haha, no probs man. I would have thought the same. I'm just lucky enough to know one of the members. And I can second that about soundoffs! Or I'd be happy if we could comment in them - that would be nice.
    October 21 07:08 AM
  • garas Hey! I was just reading your soundoff on the latest Wampyric Rites album (which was grrrrreat), and got me thinking: do you really belive they're from Ecuador?? I'm asking this because I know who makes those sweet synth tracks and that guy is from the USA. The other(s) are still a mystery to me, but I'm doubtful.
    October 20 03:54 PM
  • necropig oh sweet, glad you liked
    October 18 04:36 PM
  • Relinquished you're almost 10 you oldman

    September 25 05:54 PM
  • Rowhaus I dig all their stuff but Futility is their ultimate banger
    September 11 08:41 PM
  • Rowhaus no love for new mgla I see
    September 11 06:47 PM
  • Dewinged So that Mylingar record, just ok? Was jamming the single before and goddamn!
    July 31 01:18 AM
  • garas Hi! Not really. To be honest, I've discovered UVSS just today. That particular album I heard wasn't exactly my taste, but I shall check the others if you say so!
    July 26 09:16 PM
  • Hawks Check my Thornography review!
    July 24 01:57 PM
  • naughtcturnal Cheers brah \m/ And btw, thanks again for the recs on my list. I had taken a short break from bestial black metal cuz I kinda od'd on it but just the other day I copped The Inexorable (after checkong out Hammer of Gods a few weeks ago) and have been jamming it daily. Finna check out some Axis of Advance next and will keep you posted as soon as I get around to doing so.
    July 20 04:47 AM
  • Atari Idk tho, if nobody else reviews it soon they may force my hand lol. Just too damn good
    July 19 01:18 PM
  • Atari most likely not. I'd love to but so busy lately... that soundoff is prolly all I'll have time for on it anytime soon! glad you're digging it so much. you thinking you might review it then?
    July 18 09:04 PM
  • zaruyache FALSE HYPE
    July 12 01:12 AM
  • garas Hmm, that's alright. I was the same with Gaahls Wyrd - in the beginning it was bit more close to 4.5, but I felt I'll love it that much to deserve that 5.0. And well, yeah, I LOVE it.If you have some time, check out Jaskó?czy Niepokój by Lumiere. Very short DS, but just as enchanting than this new Malfet was! (A bit droney, but I'm very into this style.)
    July 1 07:42 PM
  • garas Thank you! :] It was a tough rating, very similar to my case with the latest Old Sorcery - both very close to a 4.5, but in the end I had to give "just" a 4.0.
    July 1 07:07 PM
  • brainmelter quick question: I know if an album isn't released yet its a no no to post a review for it. but does that still apply for a band that officially streamed the alb before release date? dont want the mods to come down on me lol
    June 27 06:39 AM
  • brainmelter oh **** yeah, its all you my dude. I know Evok is going to be all over that new Falls of Rauros though, he's probably more excited for that than you and I combined tbh
    June 26 05:36 PM
  • brainmelter HELL YEAH dude, its so good :,) just submitted a news article on stream lol. i might do a write up for the new one if you don't tbh. let a chibba know so I don't have to waste my time if you do it

    March 5 10:53 PM
  • AtomicWaste Hey! Feel free to email me at atomicwaste.sputnikmusic@gmail.com with any detailed questions and I'll do my best to answer. Honestly, though, I'd say if you keep up a consistent pace on new releases this year, you're in a good position.

    February 12 02:06 AM
  • SowingSeason cool thank you! it'll definitely take time for me to get through seeing as my plate is always full, but I've been enjoying a weird amount of black metal lately so it'll be great to have a list to draw from on those "slower weeks".
    February 8 08:32 PM
  • hansoloshotfirst https://ironboneheadproductions.bandcamp.com/album/blue-hummingbird-on-the-left-atl-tlachinollisince you are the leading Black Twilight Circle connoisseur it might interest you to hear the Blue Hummingbird On The Left album is streaming on bandcamp.

    February 6 09:57 AM
  • Hawks I think I have a good chance considering just how much I actually contribute this site in one way or another and my writing has improved immensely. We shall see!
    February 4 09:54 PM

    January 31 11:54 PM
  • SowingSeason deal...downloading now!
    January 31 11:50 PM
  • ramon. someone's gotta do it. feels like they amped up the gimmicks and forgot about writing memorable songs. they nailed it on air so idk what happened.
    January 31 11:44 PM

    January 31 11:37 PM

    December 7 03:08 PM
  • Xenophanes I feel like every time I like an album with a low rating on this site, I check the scores and ours usually match. It?s happened time and time again this year lol
    December 5 01:47 PM
  • Xenophanes Nice, I?ll definitely check it out! Also, I fixed that coding error in my Scar Sighted review lol
    November 30 11:59 PM

    November 3 02:33 PM
  • ScuroFantasma Agreed with your opinion on Elderwind too. Doesn't seem to be getting through to me, a lot of softer atmo-bm loses what I like about the genre and just becomes kinda warming and pleasant instead.
    October 27 10:18 AM
  • ScuroFantasma Haha, yeah I was really not impressed by the new one unfortunately. Dude has dropped quality in general since Rise though.
    October 26 11:22 PM
  • ArsMoriendi Next round starts tomorrow night and I'm eliminating anyone who doesn't have a rec in by then.
    October 18 03:16 AM
  • Deathconscious it doesnt come out till December 7th though? ill check their other album. thanks my murderman!
    October 16 10:35 PM
  • Slex Nvm tho lmao the 3 extra songs are really bad generic bm damn
    October 12 03:23 AM
  • Slex So I've been listening to Demo Two on Spotify and just now learned the album on bandcamp has 3 extra songs and a different tracklisting??
    October 12 01:03 AM
  • Slex Absolutely stunning
    October 8 08:49 PM
  • Slex Oh my GOD this Life EP
    October 8 06:25 AM
  • Hawks Seriously. That album is ****ing insane.
    October 3 03:15 AM

    September 9 12:15 AM
  • Bloon I'm doing well! Currently in my senior year of high school and its pretty cool so far. I can't complain.
    September 8 05:50 PM
  • Bloon how are things buddy?

  • brainmelter new infernal coil leaked??
    September 6 12:19 AM
  • parksungjoon for real though i couldnt think of anything else when i read your soundoff... how beyond hope am i?
    September 5 07:50 PM
  • parksungjoon Sludgy, Proggy, intense and one hell of a ride. I'm not surprised that TheSpirit is becoming more popular; their discography is too damn awesome to not be recognized.
    September 5 06:10 PM
  • YakNips yes sir if you like atmo bm that tastefully toes the line with DSBM
    September 1 12:37 AM
  • YakNips hey my man i forgot to post it on your list, but have you heard the knokkelklang album from this year?
    August 31 06:22 AM
  • Hawks Bro jam the Frozen Graves album I just rated, seems like something that would be right up your alley.
    August 31 12:55 AM
  • FearThyEvil Just gotta say I love your profile pic.
    August 28 07:08 AM

    August 28 02:30 AM
  • Hawks You plan on reviewing that Judas Iscariot album? If not I?m prob gonna give it a write up.

  • Conmaniac glad u dig Ghostemane man
    July 30 02:43 PM
  • foxblood listen to the original version of I Set My Friends On Fire - Astral Rejection plz!! It's so amazing and I really think you'll like it considering that you like their first one. The singing/vocal melodies on it are like crack to me.
    July 26 04:14 PM
  • SowingSeason I'd say it's possible, but the main hurdle would be covering new releases. You still cover new stuff, but sometimes a few weeks after the time has passed, so someone else gets the feature and then your work goes unnoticed. If you hone in on the cutting edge of weekly releases, you can try the shorter length and see how staff responds to it. Because ultimately they decide, not me!
    July 24 11:24 PM
  • necropig How's that BM list coming along you big loaf of bread you
    July 24 05:57 PM
  • Hawks Yessssss will listen within the next day or two. m/
    July 21 10:41 PM
  • brainmelter no rushing mang, was just wondering after reading that sound off ;p have you heard new imperial triumphant??
    July 15 09:09 AM
  • brainmelter pls tell me you're going to do a write up for the new burial invocation..
    July 13 03:16 AM
  • necropig Check out beketh nexehmu - De svarta riterna :]
    July 13 02:24 AM
  • Ulfang Cheers, mate. This is Ulfang of Morvunskar - you recently wrote a rating for our EP "Im Angesicht des Abgrunds", which I appreciate a lot! I have a question though - how did you find the EP? Were you surfing bandcamp while it was in the "new arrivals" category? Just curious to see which way people take! :)
    July 11 09:09 PM
  • dbizzles Yeah, man I have been enjoying it a lot. It took me a couple songs to get into it. But now I like it a lot. Wish I preordered it but I wasn?t sold on the single.
    July 11 04:58 AM
  • Hawks I actually just came across that a few hours ago on Bandcamp and put it on my check list, looks sickkkk.
    July 9 04:50 AM
  • Hawks Cool just wanted to make sure it wasn?t just me. One dude said it was the best album of this decade lmao.
    July 9 03:52 AM
  • Hawks So what?s your thoughts on that new Deafheaven? These people are saying it?s as good as Sunbather and I?m saying they?re on meth.
    July 8 04:10 PM
  • SteakByrnes Dude nice :] and I'm like a 6th year senior by this point lol, thankfully only have two more semesters to go and then I'm done
    July 7 03:59 AM
  • SteakByrnes Nah I can't make any dates :[ I'm gonna be back at school when it comes my way, how about you?
    July 7 03:51 AM
  • SteakByrnes Dude hell yea :] He sounds like a mix of Kurt Travis and Donovan from Hail the Sun, he owns
    July 7 03:46 AM
  • SteakByrnes Dwellings - Lavender Town, peep that s*** ok I love you bye
    July 4 06:29 PM
  • SteakByrnes Evaporate is really good too, I love the older song callouts at the end of it :]
    June 6 07:39 PM
  • SteakByrnes The Kurt song, oh my ****ing god I'm in love with it. That has potential to become one of my favorite DGD songs ever
    June 6 05:09 AM

    May 25 05:45 PM
  • Hawks Will do brother.
    May 24 10:40 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Yeah, I think I'm definitely gonna go see them. Bonampak might be one of the best bm songs I've ever heard, no joke
    May 22 05:56 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Just wanted to know your thoughts, you seem to be a big fan! I checked his two solo albums a couple of days ago and they're doing a show in my city with Mortuary Drape next month. I went to Mexico not too long ago, visited some Mayan ruins and so it's really been striking my fancy haha
    May 18 01:19 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Spirit dude, do you have a moment to talk about Volahn
    May 18 12:33 PM
  • SteakByrnes Kurt sounds amazing on it, he even has a scream on it :3 The guitar work is stellar, drumming is oof boi, and those dreamy soundscapes UwU
    April 26 10:44 PM

    April 26 10:37 PM

    March 28 01:23 PM
  • Astral Abortis Yeah sounds like a straight mix of SBG and Consuming Impulse
    March 28 12:32 AM
  • Astral Abortis Please, this isn't some band called "Cist", these are clearly lost and stolen recordings of Pestilence from 1990
    March 27 12:27 PM
  • SteakByrnes I?m so glad my boi 17 won it all lmao, he?s been my favorite of the tournament easily
    March 25 09:42 PM
  • Papa Universe alright then, I'mma go on a marathon of Fief, Roman Master, Old Tower, Depressive Silence (heard that it's good) and only thne Malfet.
    March 25 08:27 PM
  • Papa Universe so... would you say that Malfet is the best way to enter dungeon synth?
    March 25 08:13 PM
  • SteakByrnes OH MY GOD THAT LAST EPISODE WAS AMAZING
    March 25 03:02 AM
  • SteakByrnes Dude I'm so sad to see it go, but I bet a new series will come soon. And the movie later this year is already looking amazing :]
    March 23 08:10 PM
  • Astral Abortis Thanks man that means a lot, glad you enjoy it
    March 23 01:49 PM
  • manosg Damn, the track is pretty amazing. Like bullets flying all over during a gunfight on a snowy mountain.

  • BigHans lol yeah I wrote a lot of joke reviews under that alt, I wish I had just done them under my main.
    March 15 01:12 PM
  • BigHans That BrokenCyde review you like was actually me under my Alt, OFace, lol

  • Atari same man, can totally relate ha. I was going to try reviewing it too actually but it's hard to really put into words

  • Atari Really nice job on the new senses fail review man :] nice to see u have such a personal connection to their music. I?m the same way, Buddy?s lyrics often get under my skin
    February 17 02:31 PM
  • Atari you're right about the new senses fail. your comment was almost identical to mine lol. the lyrics about a miscarriage/doubts with the new child are very relatable to me

  • DropTune I was wondering if I could grab your opinion on my latest review. I hope this one is formatted much better than my previous ones. I appreciate the help.https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/76114/Elliott-Smith-Heaven-Adores-You/

  • clavier Thanks! Really appreciate the kind words.

  • Nazzadan HELL yeah

  • that?s more reflective of personal interests i think; i also did a lot of cultural studies during my time at university, so i internalized that comparative, structural analytical style as my own. that one isn?t too hard though; it?s just about creating narratives around similar points of comparison, which anybody can do. as an example, you seem really interested in metal, so if you wove in historical aspects of bands and scenes into your review for comparative purposes, you?ll pretty much hav it

  • Arcade i also pat an inordinate attention to the feel and rhythm of words rather than the stuff that we as reviewers are told generally matters; always pays to go with a word that really defines your thoughts and sounds aesthetically pleasing to hear.

  • Arcade (cont.) in an essay format. i find that it helps me gather my ideas and impressions, whilst allowing me to work around the thorny structural problems that might otherwise arise.
    February 8 02:26 PM
  • Arcade well thanks man, i always appreciate the kind words! to be truthful, my voice is probably a conscious imitation of many observers? Woody Allen, Morrissey? and so i learnt from them certain poetic inflections that i try to copy. as for production of reviews, the main technique i use i learnt from Nabaokov; that is, when i listen to an album, i try to write down at least half a dozen pithy observations that are memorable and surmise my thoughts. from there, i work outwards, and develop my thoughts

  • BigHans Feel the Steel, no question.

  • Hawks ****ing sweet bro, I'll let you know for sure here within the next few weeks if I'm going.
    February 7 09:38 PM
  • BigHans Dude, are you ****ing kidding me that you've never jammed Steel Panther??? Feel the Steel. Do it. Now.
    February 7 08:01 PM
  • Hawks Good chance that I'm going to the Cradle show in Philly on April 5th, if there's a possibility that you're going too let me know so we could meet up. :]

  • Astral Abortis But if it's purely what influenced US bm bands, you could still cover a large portion of the first wave world-over.
    February 2 05:24 PM
  • Astral Abortis If you want to start with pioneering influences, Slayer, Morbid Angel, Goatlord, Necrovore, Exorcist and Possessed could all be good ones to cover. And as for the Profanatica mention, could be useful to use the bridge between Incantation and them to jump off.

  • DivergentThinking Thanks man! I'm definitely shooting for staff again next year, but this is a good start. Gotta climb that mountain again, lol
    February 2 04:24 PM
  • Nocte Thanks dude, it smells exactly like the last time I was here
