musical taste

favorite bands
The Gloom in The Corner Ultima Pluvia
Termina Dysphoria
Andys vocals are awesome and the combination of djenty song structures and rhythms with deathcore tropes and metalcore choruses, while nothing new, is done in a tasteful way that does not try to be more than it is. Most importantly the often phrygian vocal harmonies are done very well in the choruses, unlike most bands that try to do them, usually sounding bland. Overall im very happy with this offering, but i hope to see more experimentation in the future, now that Andy and Nik have found their sound.
Nomvdic Euphoria
An incredibly interesting genrebending experience, at its core it feels much more like a progressive melodeath album than any form of metalcore, although that is also quite present, with influences coming in from techdeath, blackgaze, post-hardcore and djent to create an interesting sonic experience.
Bound In Fear Eternal
I have a feeling I just witnessed the birthing point for a new direction in deathcore. This is perhaps the heaviest collection of songs I have ever heard. Im expecting to hear copy bands and Im expecting to enjoy them.
Architects For Those That Wish to Exist
Humanity's Last Breath Välde
The middle of the album is truly astounding, and I would be inclined to a 4.5-5 if all the songs were of the quality in the middle, unfortunately, the weird disjunction on Earthless and the sheer lethargy of Vittring, combined with the utterly boring first 3 songs really pull the album back. Dehumanized is fucking amazing though, and if HLB further explores this Epic Doom and Symphonic Black Metal infused Thall I expect to be able to deliver a 5. Undeniably the most unique album out of a group generally associated with "deathcore" in the past few years, save perhaps for Indwell from Methwitch.
ALAZKA Phoenix
Nostalgic emotional metalcore embracing a poppier side of things, the clean vocals stand out with some incredibly catchy hooks, and while the composition doesnt necessarily offer anything brand spanking new, the instrumentals are still creative and catchy. The growls form a solid backbone, but Im missing a bit of variety.
