  • GhostOfSarcasticBtrd I hadn't seen any MH review in the feature box yet, so idk. Regardless, I think yours should be the flagged review. Wish it had lyrics from the end of "Half the World" in the summary but beggars can't be choosers, haha.

  • RogueNine I swear you're my musical neighbor, haha. Chevelle, Red and post-metal.

  • OmairSh And fo sho. Deadwing is my favourite PT. I like a lot of their albums obviously, but Deadwing was the first album that I listened to completely. Great times. Oh yeah man, what happened to Jolly? Thanks to you reminding me, I jammed a few songs again. Such a good band. Really enjoyed the last song they put out, Ava

  • OmairSh Yoo Pistol. How goes it? Tbh my expectations are dampened for the new Leprous album. I liked the single, but it feels like they're really taming the beast that created albums like TPS and Bilateral. I embrace a change of sound, but I hope they don't lose the x factor that made me fall in love with them. This year hasn't been good. POS, Anathema, releasing average albums

  • Rowan5215 hey man, if you could hit me with your email we can get you writing for the top 50 list

  • Jom As long as you did the Google Form, it's guaranteed to be seen by the contribs. Whether or not they rebuke your request is up to them, though, but I can try to put in a good word for the reigning Prediction Contest champion of 2014 (given that we didn't run one last year)!

  • Jom Hey dude, thank you for voting! Wanted to alert you that the Kendrick comp would fall under an LP vs. an EP for this particular feature, so if you wanted to adjust it before Tuesday, you are more than welcome to do so. We don't exactly have the best system here, but I appreciate your contribution. Thanks!

  • OmairSh It's got an upbeat vibe similar to Lucky, and it's not groundbreaking, but it's catchy. Plus it's the single so there's definitely a lot more interesting stuff on the actual album. I'm originally from Pakistan.

  • OmairSh Yo Pistol have you checked this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfSCIIL-zTI
    January 16 11:17 PM
  • GooGooGajoob Bit late to the Karnivool review...how about this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvwmFoql0lg
    November 24 10:32 PM
  • OmairSh It took me a while to digest her screams, because I normally don't like metalcore-ish screams, but they do compliment the album. She's got good cleans as well. The instrumentalists are top notch, and a solid rhythm section is always a reminder as to why it's such an important part of a band's identity.
    June 13 11:01 PM
  • OmairSh Btw the Obscure Sphinx album you reviewed is pretty damn good. Has some deliciously filthy guitar and bass tones. I LOVE Decimation's intro, flucking fantastic. And it's great to be able to actually hear the bassist in a metal band.
    June 12 11:39 PM
  • OmairSh I've heard about the Skyharbour album. It's gotten rave reviews. Might check it out, thanks.
    May 30 05:40 PM
  • OmairSh And the album's a solid 4 atm and still growing. Why did I ever doubt this band? Btw tell me similar albums to the congregation, I want to add them to the review
    May 29 12:45 AM
  • OmairSh He's being the good fan and waiting for the CD to arrive. I admire him for that, but I'm not that strong :-P. I'll be buying the mp3/FLAC version when it's available online though. Gotsta support this band. Yeah I actually didn't expect such a positive response to the album, so I'm happy to see it. Actually the Coal review was featured and the album got reasonably hyped back then. I don't know if my summary is off putting or the review doesn't paint a positive enough of a picture.
    May 29 12:25 AM
  • OmairSh Dude is a vocal monster, one of the best and most refreshing voices in metal imo. Dude will you type lyrics on the Congregation thread already. It's been like 2 days and it still seems like there is no hype about the album on here. Triumphant and Within My Fence have such fantastic choruses.
    May 28 06:23 PM
  • OmairSh Einar at his best https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xT2YSvZ7QWE, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BfeL02HaYA
    May 27 06:01 PM
  • OmairSh I wrote my review after around 10 listens (which included a 2 day break between as well) so that I could digest it. My opinion is still aligned with the review, but I feel the album will grow now that I'm taking another break from it :-P.
    May 27 04:45 PM
  • OmairSh The second half is more moody for sure, but it's cool in its own way. But it wouldn't be a Leprous album if it didn't take a while to fully understand it right?
    May 26 11:33 PM
  • OmairSh What's your general perception of the album so far?
    May 26 11:07 PM
  • OmairSh Leprous AMA! https://www.reddit.com/r/progmetal/comments/37d19f/we_are_leprous_ask_us_anything_you_want_to_know/
    May 26 03:11 PM
  • OmairSh Thanks man. Just keep the grand scheme of things in mind. It's Leprous (more like Einar) releasing another album with a different feel to add to their evolving discog.
    May 26 01:19 PM
  • OmairSh New Leprous is out dude!.........In Europe :-P.
    May 25 09:28 PM
  • Wolfhorde That is correct.
    August 17 01:50 AM
  • OmairSh Heh nice, I've never checked it out, might do that. Have you checked Big Wreck's Ghost? Pretty interesting rock album, not your standard rock affair
    August 14 09:46 PM
  • fromtheinside the only part i don't like about "that" review is that every song is a single line haha but that was your dumb friend, i think you and I both get how chevy is BARELY single only material, like single, radio... cause, jesus, if i hear one more comparison to three days grace i might off myself
    July 16 09:13 AM
  • OmairSh If I'm lucky, they'll something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQOLYA4o5Fg
    July 14 11:45 PM
  • OmairSh Leprous' drummer has parted with the band :-O. They have replaced him with a great drummer but still that sucks.
    May 5 07:11 PM
  • OmairSh I would like their next record to be better than Coal, and I want to be surprised a little by the direction. The problem with releasing brilliant albums is the expectations rise. I've been listening to random genres, from electronic (todd terje), to prog metal (Fates Warning), to art rock (Blackfield), to indie (The National). Music mood swings :P
    May 3 05:03 PM
  • OmairSh Oh and I jammed Bilateral after a while. Still can't believe how an album that I know so well can still surprise me with its quality. Fvcking brilliant band. Anxiously waiting their next record.
    May 1 12:59 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah it wasn't that difficult to listen to their albums. I checked them out around a year back, pretty interesting stuff. I wish the vocalist would stop "roughening" his vocals like Kurt Cobaine, it really annoys me. He actually has a good voice if he uses it properly
    May 1 12:58 AM
  • OmairSh I see you like Jolly
    April 29 03:26 AM
  • fromtheinside was your TFK rec in that chevy review a joke? lulz
    April 5 03:36 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah man that's what the relatively unknown European bands have to go through. Even Anathema didn't have a proper US tour for over 20 years due to the costs, ridiculous. I wouldn't mind seeing a cover band even at this point.
    March 11 05:28 AM
  • OmairSh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mt6cEqtvUHM Restless Dare you. ****ing hell I shat myself. The way they translate the intensity on stage is ridiculous. That ****ing growl during the transition is immense
    March 10 04:40 AM
  • Mad. I've dabbled in DLC before but never listened to a full album, maybe I'll have to! Seriously though Thumpermonkey is incredible
    March 1 06:14 PM
  • Mad. Those are all on bandcamp and the last two are Aussie prog, which you seem to dig
    March 1 02:40 PM
  • Mad. Yeah, I've got Frames 4.5'd and Effloresce 4.0'd but haven't checked EIP yet. They're quite a hard band to digest, I'm taking my time! I reviewed Echo Street if you're interested, it's probably slightly above Insider in my ranking and definitely worth a listen if just for Matmos, but doesn't touch The Octopus which is superb. I reckon you'd definitely like Thumpermonkey - Sleep Furiously (a huge grower and a bit like Oceansize), Anubis - A Tower of Silence and Projected Twin - Earth to World.
    March 1 02:40 PM
  • Mad. Yo mah nigga, awesome taste. You're a lil too harsh on Amplifier - Insider tho!
    March 1 02:29 PM
  • osmark86 yeah, we're working on some new stuff atm. probs will go into the studio earliest in the summer if everything goes according to plan. thanks btw, really appreciate it mate.
    February 14 02:46 AM
  • osmark86 totally missed that you dug my band's EP. thanks a bunch man! cheers ^^
    February 12 08:50 AM
  • larrytheslug you got meditite and sawk in su safari. i cant see your third dude yet.
    January 18 02:52 AM
  • larrytheslug ill get back to you on that. skarmorys are a great lead and typing. klefki is also good typing with prankster ability. imma play sometime tomorrow, ill check out your safari.
    January 17 04:00 AM
  • larrytheslug added you on pkmn ;]
    January 13 03:59 AM
  • OmairSh Finally someone appreciates the album :D. It takes quite a while to get into, but boy is it rewarding. Band is pretty consistent
    September 16 11:54 PM
  • OmairSh How did you like Leprous?
    September 16 02:02 AM
  • Vooligan Yeh, defs a grower. Check out Helm's new record, too. It's fantastic.
    August 29 10:18 AM
  • OmairSh Hell yeah BSB were life back during the good old days m/. And I know "Waste of air's" pretty extreme isn't it? Its definitely an acquired taste. Great contrast to the song before it as well as after it. Dudes vocals are immense, diverse and powerful as is the bands music
    August 10 06:32 PM
  • OmairSh Also Backstreet boys ftw pop/
    August 10 04:42 PM
  • OmairSh I think you'll enjoy them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9o2nVY8FZ0
    August 10 04:34 PM
  • OmairSh http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=986iAyQpr1U REEESTLEEES!!! (Ignore the shower scene :P)Band is incredible one of the frontrunners of furture prog metal, very underrated
    August 10 04:33 PM
  • OmairSh Dude check Leprous - Bilateral now
    August 10 03:47 PM
  • tiesthatbind Yeah I know that feeling, about 3 and a half years or so ago when I got into Dream Theater they were the first prog band that I'd gotten into and I was just blown away. I barely listened to any other band for a while, I went through their discography quickly and was impressed by the majority of their albums. Even though I enjoy other prog bands more nowadays, DT is where it all started for me.
    April 15 12:45 AM
  • tiesthatbind So yeah Panopticon is amazing. Looks like I've found another discography to explore!
    April 14 11:10 PM
  • tiesthatbind I've meant to listen to them but for some reason I never got to it. I'll definitely check that out, I haven't been excited about much new hard rock in a while so hopefully they can change that.
    April 10 11:28 PM
  • tiesthatbind Glad you're liking DT, I don't listen to them as much anymore (burned out on them unfortunately) but Scenes From a Memory is a brilliant album and still one of my all-time favorites. Riverside is definitely influenced by them. They pretty much took elements of a bunch of different prog bands including DT, PT, and Opeth and combined them all into a unique sound. I guess I'll check Panopticon first, thanks. Almost as good as Chevelle, eh? ;)
    April 10 11:03 PM
  • tiesthatbind If you want a Buckethead rec, for you I'd recommend Decoding the Tomb of Bansheebot, it's pretty metal-oriented but still melodic and one of his easier ones to get into. Now, which Isis album should I start with? I don't really have any experience with post-metal but I see Vheissu compared to them a lot and that's one of my favorite albums ever so I figure I need to give them a shot.
    April 10 03:01 AM
  • tiesthatbind Thanks man, yeah it took longer than I thought too, I know there could be more but if I did anything like that again it would be for individual bands or something, cause I just kept wanting to put more Riverside moments. You really do have more similar tastes to me than most users on this site, that hard rock/prog mix is something I don't see from many people on here.
    April 10 02:58 AM
  • tiesthatbind Check out my "favorite moments in music" list when you get the chance, pretty different overall but I have a few of the same ones you put on yours.
    April 9 02:00 AM
  • iamSeraph nice taste dude .)
    December 2 07:41 PM
  • cb123 yeah i used to do that aswell until a lot of the mediafire links got taken down so kinda forced into trying out the others a bit more
    November 6 10:08 PM
  • Masochist Oh, man, ITCOTCK is something else entirely! If you dig Pink Floyd, you should, at the very least, be able to appreciate King Crimson, if not love them. Just watch out for the last 9-and-a-half minutes of "Moonchild." And if you like their first album, also check out 'Red'.
    November 6 10:08 PM
  • cb123 lol ok, weird :p filestube is usually a good place to search for things on filesharing sites ive found
    November 6 10:00 PM
  • bloc Haha, I'm not the one to ask when it comes to mainstream rock recs dude!
    September 26 09:34 PM
  • bloc It was really bad. Think all that crap played on the radio but several times more annoying.
    September 26 08:03 PM
  • Revolution666 Yeah, I have a bit of a thing for epic songs o.o
    September 11 11:10 PM
  • ProfessorVeerappan you have off shot into so many other genre so thats why you cannot hear 1 full album in all also whatever it is of so much of Progression then have you heard Echolyn
    July 28 10:19 AM
  • ProfessorVeerappan neurosis is never a 3.5 bro
    July 26 12:00 PM
  • macadoolahicky Hell yeah it does! I need to listen to it in full again before I rate it, though. It's actually on my to-buy list.
    April 26 08:32 PM

    April 26 10:05 AM
  • ThunderNeutral21 chevelle, linkin park, deftones, birds of tokyo
    April 25 07:02 PM
  • tiesthatbind Yeah I'm really loving Oceansize right now, although I still prefer Effloresce to Frames by a bit. I'll check out that album, thanks for the rec.
    April 20 08:41 PM
  • fromtheinside riffs** just wait till you hear pinata and ruse
    December 2 01:22 AM
  • fromtheinside better than ttot ans damn close to wwn. its theory best in years. mastodon and soad rifts everywjere
    December 2 01:21 AM
  • tiesthatbind If you like an epic rock sound (which it looks like you do) you'll be addicted by the time the second track finishes. And yeah, I actually started off here as a mainstream rock guy, but that's changed a lot these last couple years, I've been getting more and more into prog as of late. I've got Oceansize's first album and I like it a lot, so I'll definitely snag the rest of their discography pretty soon.
    October 19 06:09 PM
  • tiesthatbind Since you 5'd Deadwing, you should check out Riverside's Second Life Syndrome, you would love it.
    October 19 02:41 PM

  • FatChickIrl hi
    August 22 07:51 PM
  • DeadStarShine How dare you calling BB a s*** band when listening LP? You bastard . Hey, I'm kidding!But seriously, it's like me, who occasionally listen to Simple Plan, started trashing out Yellocard for being too teenagerish. I'll have to listen to the album you rec me. But actually I'm more turned into alternative stuff now. Things like Radiohead, Anberlin, Parades. Try Parades, they're a surpisingly good thing around now.
    August 16 03:45 AM
  • DeadStarShine That sound like me at times. Speaking about reviews, I've just submitted one on Breaking Benjamin's best of, if you wanna take a look.
    August 15 08:42 PM
  • DeadStarShine I definitely see some similarities. The obvious difference is that you write one for pretty much every album you rate LOL. I see we have some bands in common too.
    August 15 07:24 PM
  • DeadStarShine Hey, Severus. Really? How's that?
    August 15 07:18 PM
  • BallsToTheWall her name was Riley Mason
    August 8 10:05 AM
  • BallsToTheWall Dont think thats who she is.
    August 7 07:54 PM
  • BallsToTheWall No dont think that was her, posted a vi on shadowsremain page, watch that and see if you can tell who that is.
    August 7 07:05 PM
  • bry11 Thanks for the recommendation, I have heard a few songs off the new Alice In Chains but haven't yet actually sat down and played the whole album through. I will check it out. By the way, awesome review on Sci-Fi Crimes
    June 27 11:52 AM
