  • teamster Did you try that Iress album?
    January 19 10:14 PM
  • Essence :'[ i will weather the pain this causes me but I wish I had learned it in 2020
    January 13 07:35 PM
  • Essence i am heartbroken at your paysage rating
    January 12 12:52 AM
  • DDDeftoneDDD Bro. Don t get me wrong. You re a very cool guy. Its just the fact some albums I thought you d enjoy did not grab you at all. Other than that your reasons are v well fundamented and always politelly. The fact you came to enjoy bellwicth collab is enough for me ahah. I was only telling you why I feel like recing you is like a shot in the dark. So...you make music? Luv

  • DDDeftoneDDD Hi dude! I get you are a little grumpy lately ahah so i feel this can be a bit a shot in the dark but I think you ll dig the latest Tombs m/ hug

  • Crysis The core is there: riffs, vocals, variety, pacing, intensity. This is quite good. I especially love the intro and how it builds and builds. It's fantastic songwriting.
    November 20 03:12 AM
  • Crysis First impressions are that this is a jam. When it goes, it goes hard and the pace is very nice. I'd say the drums are a bit off, specifically with how thunderous they get at points and kind of overwhelm whatever is going on (see the transition at 4:19 for an example of what I mean, they also rear their head every 6 seconds or so during the riffing from 10:10 forwards). Sorry if I'm not describing it well. It otherwise sounds superb, will keep listening.
    November 20 03:06 AM
  • Crysis got it, thanks!
    November 20 02:31 AM
  • Gmork89 So good bruh, tempted to break out a review for it but I haven't written one in years haha.
    November 13 12:58 AM
  • Gmork89 The Sethian one of the best songs of the year or what??
    November 11 11:06 PM
  • Pikazilla If you like the new Draconian, be sure to check out Trees of Eternity. One of the best goth/doom albums ever.
    November 10 11:49 AM
  • Wizard I subscribe to you and yes I love the track! If it sucked, you know I would tell you ;). Need to give it a few more listens.
    October 26 10:42 PM
  • teamster Check out Klone's 2019 Hellfest videos on youtube. Wow.
    October 23 01:01 PM
  • Evok Are you Ethereal Shroud???????
    October 14 12:16 PM
  • Crysis i'm not just saying that because you're on here and we all know you, it's legit great. exactly what i love about black metal: the fact that in one track you can have a really dark, but hopeful atmosphere, a great balance of heaviness and melody, good pacing, varied song structure. it's something you should be really proud of.
    October 12 10:17 PM
  • Nocte Much love, so much easier to hunt and catalog
    October 12 01:12 AM
  • Storm In A Teacup It?s been hard for me to like the genre this year but your sound is fresh and seeing how you grew it is and will be fun, demo or not. I know how hard it is trying to develop what you want to create and with what I?m hearing your evolution is worthy of praise, hearing demos makes it even more...I dunno, personal! m/
    October 11 05:45 PM
  • Storm In A Teacup m/ it is awesome! I'm looking forward to following and hearing more. Gonna check out your second to last album later today.
    October 11 05:32 PM
  • Nocte Is your new one on Apple Music?
    October 11 07:43 AM
  • Wizard Dude, pretty sure me and you are the only ones who love the new Cripple Black Phoenix!
    October 9 12:01 AM
  • Egarran Haven't thought about that album for ages. But then came that unexpected Ihsahn cover.
    August 30 09:48 PM
  • Egarran Oh do a Scoundrel Days review please
    August 30 07:31 PM
  • Essence remaster sounds excellent
    August 17 01:54 AM
  • Spag I admit, I wasn't into their second one much BUT I have to hear it again, haven't heard it in nearly 4 years. I've been rebuilding my ratings from scratch and well, a lot of things have grown off but some things have really really grown on me. (Like Omit's debut for example, that album is awesome.)
    July 26 08:42 AM
  • Spag I finally bumped 40 Watt Sun's debut album to a 5, I've always really loved it but just hearing it again recently floored me. I swear it has aged extremely well and I am grateful for that, haha.

  • teamster Have you checked the latest from Lotus Thief? Thought of you immediately.
    May 9 05:14 PM
  • teamster If you like Kontinuum...http://dool-nl.bandcamp.com/album/summerland
    April 12 03:42 PM
  • Spag I bought that Lychgate EP off bandcamp, it's sooo good!
    April 7 08:13 PM
  • Spag And yeah, tbh, I trust Sputnik's music taste a lot more than I do RYMs, site is just strange to me sometimes, I have an account but I nuked all my ratings. I nuked my ratings on here too, I have been relistening to every damn thing I've ever come across, it's gonna be a long journey to revise everything I've heard lol. My newest 5s are A Map of All Our Failures and Epicus Doomicus Metallicus. Lovely albums they are.
    March 6 10:39 AM
  • Spag Oh, awesome! I have to listen to it soon. I downloaded the uhhh, 34 percent complete album, the weird experimental one they did, it's their only LP I haven't heard aside from the new one. I have a feeling... that I won't like 34.788 complete... lol. Oh well, still intend to give it a shot. And hell, your rating for Ghost of Orion has given me hope, I'm sure I'll love it. :)
    March 6 10:35 AM
  • Spag I wasn't sure if I ever would (always thought the album was awesome of course), but I finally 5'd A Map of All Our Failures. :) I'm also disgusted by the avg rating for it on RYM, blegh.

  • CaptainDooRight hello there Noct, i wanna share my new trvth album with you for intimacy reasons, https://trvth.bandcamp.com/album/inordinate-and-surpassing
    December 12 07:31 PM
  • Essence I'm really sorry to hear that man, that's a really tough break. I have known a few people with that and it's a major struggle and people can sometimes kind of take it not seriously, so I feel for you. I think that's a really ambitious, interesting idea if you could channel that experience through your next release though
    December 10 04:06 PM
  • Essence :) that's awesome man, how's the recording coming along? I know it's really been an ordeal to get this next one off the ground
    December 6 03:50 PM
  • Essence drive by comment to say i've always really liked your taste in music and usually check what you've been listening to for new stuff to jam

    September 28 07:11 AM

    January 20 03:01 AM
  • Spag Late response, but I had no idea the album even existed to begin with. I'm a bit late to the party lol. It's awesome though. Also, I know you don't normally care for Devin Townsend but I am happy to see you gave Ocean Machine a 4. I love that album, it's essentially a top 10 for me. :)
    January 16 08:58 AM
  • minty901 Mono's new album leaked and it's easily their best since Hymn. Makes their last few efforts look so lazy. Check it out.
    January 6 04:52 PM
  • Spag Duuude, that new Virgin Black album something really special and awesome. (And I still have yet to listen to the new In The Woods, don't like their new material nearly as much as the old stuff.)
    January 4 12:45 AM
  • Hawks Hell yeah bro. Also jam that Quercus album I just rated. Avant-garde funeral doom, so damn good.
    January 4 12:42 AM

    July 6 03:50 PM
  • Voivod You are so right about Kontinuum; compelled by your soundoff, I checked the (new) album opener at their bandcamp page, and I have it on repeat ever since.

    December 29 06:32 PM
  • Xenophanes Thank you bby
    October 12 03:58 AM
  • Xenophanes You got a link for that new Bell Witch? Incredibly excited after seeing that 4.5
    October 11 01:43 AM
  • Evok Ur a cool dude, dude!
    September 15 03:27 PM
  • Muikuli I'll give it a go, cheersssss
    September 14 12:13 AM
  • Muikuli It does make a huge difference. Makes you wonder why he brickwalled it so badly. Especially when he made some effort to make the self-titled album less loud in the remaster (Time I remaster is louder than original though so what gives?) They were still excellent live anyway if you get the chance.
    September 13 11:16 PM
  • Muikuli Comparing some parts side by side, I guess what I appreciate the most is that you've given it more space. That probably puts it more in line with the way Time I was mixed.
    September 13 10:48 PM
  • Muikuli After one listen I'd say that the most noticeable thing comparing just by going memory of the original mix is that the vocals are a lot less loud, and that alone does make the whole mix sound more balanced. That really was the one thing that was probably most blatantly 'strange' even to my ears in the original mix. Nicely done.
    September 13 10:23 PM
  • Muikuli Cheers mate. Really appreciate the effort. I'll let you know how I feel it compares to vanilla mix after digesting.
    September 13 09:31 PM
  • Muikuli I'd like to hear your Forest Seasons Remaster too, what's the avenue?
    September 13 05:12 PM
  • frozencarl cheers mate :D
    September 2 04:05 PM

    September 2 03:25 PM

  • Gmork89 Seems nobody knows about Trees of Eternity on here, new album is a stunner huh??
    November 15 05:41 PM
  • TalonsOfFire A creator of anything, like music, will always have something over a critic, because in the end they made something after all. And yea Ethereal Shroud rules
    September 22 04:25 PM
  • TalonsOfFire That's awesome, I got the new Neurosis and Meshuggah early that way
    September 22 12:44 AM
  • TalonsOfFire How'd you hear Kodama? You reviewing it for another site or something?
    September 21 08:39 PM
  • BallsDeep just dropping a shout to say you've got, excuse me, some damn fine taste in music my man, ill be working my way through your top rated/lists to check stuff I haven't heard yet. Stay classy
    September 12 03:07 PM
  • Spag I'm sure it'll grow on me, hopefully. I can tell you this now I enjoyed it more than the new Kataonia on first listen so that's a plus in its own right. I'm actually surprised you like it as much as you did because you always seemed to have mixed feelings on his work lol. Also I STILL have to listen to your album AND remember next month is very important... 40 Watt Sun and Mithras. :]
    September 4 03:29 AM
  • Spag Nice! I've been counting down the days for this no lie. I also have to listen to the new Thy Catafalque on the same day. It shall be pretty interesting. I'm expecting both albums to be a 8/10 at the worst for me. Also, I need to listen to that Devin Townsend album again because I wasn't pleased on the first listen. The second half of the album did absolutely nothing for me.
    September 3 09:08 PM
  • Spag Dude holy s*** how did you hear the new ITW? Promo?
    September 3 02:20 AM
  • PortalofPerfection Dude. DUDE. Mother****ing Moonsorrow and Saor in the same year!? I cannot handle the epicnnneeeeessssssaaaahhhh!!!
    September 1 09:43 PM
  • Gmork89 Like the new Devin album? I didn't know you were a fan.
    September 1 06:06 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Finally checked out that new track of yours you linked me too. So good.
    August 26 02:14 PM
  • Spag I still need to hear your previous one lol. I have actually seen your album in a lot of charts on 4chan and whatnot lol. I don't think most people are aware that you have an active Sputnik account lol.Also I can only hope your new one has some slams!
    July 26 11:29 PM
  • Spag Yup. I loved 40 Watt Suns debut and this caught me by surprise lol. That new Mithras will slay no doubt. I have 4 albums to listen in September too lol. In the woods, Opeth, Devin Townsend and Thy Catafalque. Hoping I love all these since the new Katatonia album I disliked heavily. :[
    July 26 10:33 PM
  • Spag Nice Ocean Machine rating by the way, that's a top 10 for me personally. And that Katatonia album rating couldn't be more accurate. That album was a infuriating disappointment.
    July 26 04:00 PM
  • Spag Had to take a jab at you when I added Wider than the Sky to the database good sir lol. I just about shat when I saw the album post on FB. The new Mithras comes out a week after this album by the way. Any of these has potential to be my AOTY. :]
    July 26 03:57 PM
  • Sevengill Ah, cool. Thanks! I've released so many albums lately I forget who I have and haven't pitched them to, haha.
    July 17 04:59 AM
  • Sevengill Dark, have I bothered you about Dzo-nga yet? It'd go nicely with Ethereal Shroud in a playlist.
    July 16 05:03 AM
  • Sevengill Thanks for the album. Def wasn't a favor rating, it deserves it. The builds are gorgeous and feel natural, even if the vocals took me some time to warm up to. Awesome stuff. You've gotten a decent following, too.
    July 12 12:02 PM
  • PortalofPerfection ****in sweet man, solid plan. Gonna be good stuff for sure.
    July 9 05:54 AM
  • PortalofPerfection Okay :[ thanks for giving it a go! Got any new music you're close to finished with?
    July 7 01:49 AM
  • blacklightjer :]
    July 6 08:13 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Nice 5 for Jumalten :]Which reminds me, I really think you should give Sojourner another chance. I know you didn't much care for Heratige of the Natural Realm but Empires of Ash is really good, worth checking.
    July 4 02:23 PM

    June 24 07:58 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Dude i NEVER would've guessed you'd 4 Astronoid lol surprising me again man lol. It's great stuff. Sounds super fresh as far a metal goes.
    June 23 12:15 AM
  • parksungjoon hey no fair, i haven't been here much recently
    June 19 03:02 PM
  • parksungjoon no pls dont stop reviewing :[
    June 19 02:15 PM
  • Gmork89 Ah man how come???
    June 11 10:58 PM
  • Gmork89 You should review Astronoid bud, I'd be interested to see your write up on it.
    June 11 03:14 AM
  • PortalofPerfection You know I went and checked out The Howling Void, and I saw that you have it a 1.5. When I first fired it up I thought damn this actually pretty good, why did Noctus hate it so much?After going through a few minutes of a few tracks I realized there's a high-pitched (and pretty s***ty sounding) chorus in the background ALL THE TIME! I mean I don't know if that's why you hated it but that s*** got annoying REAL quick lol. Shame because there's it seems pretty solid otherwise.
    May 23 04:02 AM
  • Sevengill https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFYlxh9Y63Y It's in the news section now. Thanks!
    May 17 09:03 PM
  • Sevengill dark I'd like your opinion on something. I'm finishing a blackened ambient project and could use some feedback. any chance you've got 40 minutes lying around?
    May 16 06:15 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Btw, what did you think of that 2.5 review? :\
    April 22 08:08 PM
  • PortalofPerfection I definitely hear the influence, especially in your longest songs. Good place to look for inspiration haha! But yeah, 20 years and 7 albums later and Moonsorrow are still killing it. Mimisbrunn is just...****ing...WOW
    April 22 02:20 AM
  • PortalofPerfection See here is where our tastes converge 100%. Jumalten Aika is mother****ing astouding. I'd like to see something top this year. I wager it can't be done.

  • Space Jester That's kind of awesome, it's really good for a joke album haha. It kind of amazes me that you achieved such a massive sound with such basic means, I feel inspired! Do have a kit or are the drums programmed?

  • Space Jester With* the second one, typo~
    October 23 02:29 AM
  • Space Jester It looks like it's available on Hell's Headbangers. I like the first album too but dang, you outdid yourself by a good margin worth the second one. Could I inquire about what software and equipment you use? I'd like to try my hand at doing some solo stuff and I'm not really sure where to start.
    October 23 02:28 AM
  • Space Jester Jammed your latest album twice today and I mean it when I say that I loved it. I'm going to buy the CD tomorrow.

  • TalonsOfFire I like pretty much all bm, and what you're doing sounds awesome, am excited to hear!
    October 21 02:38 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Less necro? So you're making a Sunbather ripoff?? haha jk that sounds really cool, I only asked about genrebending out of curiosity, I'm a sucker for that stuff
    October 21 12:50 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Interesting, is it going to genrebend at all?
    October 21 12:37 AM
  • TalonsOfFire I can't even imagine doing that, spending eight years on something and writing and playing all the instruments myself, and it even being good, it's pretty damn impressive. I'm sure it takes forever, and whenever you make more im excited to hear it, keep up the great work!
    October 21 12:00 AM
  • TalonsOfFire That makes sense, and good to hear you concentrating on music since Falling Ash was one of the best black metal albums of the year
    October 20 11:27 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I was going to anyway, but you're not reviewing anymore? Any particular reason?
    October 20 11:14 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Hey Noc you gonna review the new Abigail Williams?
    October 20 11:07 PM
  • Hawks Not a problem at all brother!
    October 19 03:31 PM
  • osmark86 time for some Ethereal Shroud again. juicy stuff indeed.
    October 19 01:06 PM
  • Hawks Just got done with my first spin bro and holy s*** this rules. You're talented dude, excited to see where you go from here. I currently have it as number 18 on my top 25 metal albums of 2015 so far after just one listen. :]
    October 19 03:11 AM
  • Hawks About to give it a full listen now! Will report back with a rating when I'm done. :]
    October 19 02:44 AM
  • Hawks Not in full bro, but I sampled the first track and it sounds amazing. Gonna give it a full go either tonight or tomorrow.
    October 18 11:22 PM
  • bnelso55 That sounds great! I hope you get there. I'm sure the results will be excellent. You've already managed to capture solid guitar and drum sounds. Ethereal shroud getting the studio treatment would be top notch. I can understand recording the vocals in a place where you're in your element. I think that would be challenging to get an honest performance in a studio when you're not comfortable with the surroundings. Im concerned about that part of my music too.
    October 17 01:34 AM
  • bnelso55 Glad to hear the living situation has improved. Wow, that album is even more impressive to me now that I consider all the barriers and limitations you overcame. Haha it also probably means I really have no excuse. With a label backing you, do you think you'll be able to make it into a studio for the next record, or are you content with where you're at?
    October 16 08:32 PM
  • bnelso55 Thank you! I will certainly do that. It's a similar situation, where I've been mulling over the same material for 6-7 years and I've come to that "now or never" phase. I'm hoping to record some definitive versions of the music as soon as I can afford to do so. Everything I have recorded up to this point is lacking quality-wise, to say the least. If the final result is even halfway as successful as "...Falling Ash", I'd be thrilled.
    October 16 08:15 PM
  • bnelso55 Wow. After all of that you should be proud! Man, that's has to be a great feeling. That makes me happy for you, a little envious too. :) Hopefully one day I can feel the same way.
    October 16 07:49 PM
  • bnelso55 I'm really not surprised to hear that. The best music it seems either occurs in an instant or evolves over the course of many years. I feel like I can hear the blood, sweat, and tears that went into creating "They Became the Falling Ash".
    October 16 07:40 PM
  • bnelso55 Oh, and yeah, I know exactly what you mean. Even if I'm not committing anything to tape, I'm always kicking ideas around in my head. Sometimes it just takes time.
    October 16 07:09 PM
  • bnelso55 I'm thoroughly impressed by the latest Ethereal Shroud! Even after just one listen, I think I can say that it is your best work to date. I found myself completely enthralled at multiple points throughout the record, especially during the latter parts of "Look Upon the Light" and "Echoes in the Snow". Congratulations. What an accomplishment.
    October 16 07:09 PM
  • bnelso55 Please do! I enjoy the work you've done thus far. Right now I actually feel kind of stupid that I did not make the connection that you are Ethereal Shroud. I recognize the artwork for "They Became the Falling Ash" and I've seen the title appearing in the comments thread and I just never got around to checking it out. I will most certainly give it a listen now. I'm excited and glad to see you're still creating music!
    October 16 06:21 PM
  • bnelso55 Hey Noctus! Just stopping by to say I revisited "Starlight's Guide" recently and realized I had never really congratulated you properly on its release. The music is excellent, man. "Illuminance" is probably my favorite track, but I've added the whole EP to my "autumn playlist" and it'll be in regular rotation as the seasons change. Cheers!
    October 16 03:04 PM
  • Hawks Also, idk what happened or who's being negative towards you here, but **** them dude. You've been here for a long time and are a great user and reviewer. Don't let these idiots around here bring you down. You're a good guy buddy.
    October 16 01:44 PM
  • Hawks Yesssss! It's about time. ;] Will jam hard bro.
    October 16 01:41 PM
  • Deviant. I took a look and the person in question doesn't stick out as a "problem user". I even looked at some of your other reviews and couldn't find any consistent pattern either. Sorry dude
    October 16 06:22 AM
  • Atari Didn't realize people have been negative towards u outside of the negs, that's lame. I can't convince u to keep reviewing but I can say I hope I still see u around these parts because I respect your opinion on music. When I first started getting into bm on this site you and Kyle are two of the users I looked to the most to help me discover new music.... Even tho I don't really talk to u guys much at all lol.
    October 16 01:04 AM
  • minty901 It's odd but I wouldn't dwell on it. I see nothing wrong with the review at all, it hits on all the key points and is plenty concise yet descriptive. The album finally hit UK iTunes so I got it in (relatively) decent quality now. First track is better than I remember from the video so I'm looking forward to the rest.
    October 16 12:55 AM
  • Atari no worries man, I hope my comments don't make matters worse, but I just had to speak out when I saw how quickly the negs were piling on. and I really do dig your music too : ] the new ethereal shroud ruled, gonna be revisiting and re-rating it here pretty soon
    October 15 11:16 PM
  • Hawks Sweet def let me know bro! m/
    October 10 06:54 PM
  • Hawks Yesssss! When is that gonna happen bud?
    October 10 02:36 PM
  • minty901 so hideous album is streaming in full on their facebook fyi
