musical taste

favorite bands
Noorvik Noorvik
One of the more interesting and dynamic post rock records I've heard personally. Noorvik take quite a bit of liberty with their influences, which does lead to some slight disjoint during some transitions, but altogether, this is a compelling debut showcasing a band with plenty of promise.
Dark Tranquillity We Are the Void
I rather enjoy this midpoint between Fiction and Construct; we get enough of the grizzling guitar work characteristic of the former with hints at the wonderfully melodic keys and atmosphere from the latter. Truth be told, I find it more compelling than its successors.
Desultory Into Eternity
A fine marriage between thrash and death metal with melodic counseling for good measure.
Slow (BE) V - Oceans
Likely the most submersive metal album of the year; if you've ever wondered what the musical equivalent to drowning while holding just enough breath to stay alive sounds like, this is it.
Cormorant Diaspora
One of 2017's more surprising black metal albums, which gives it that much more of a lasting impression over the smorgasbord of stellar releases from said subgenre this year.
Sundran Sundran
Interestingly constructed, Sundran sounds like it wants to be a concise, defined piece from start to finish, hence its commitment to sounding like one track. The actual results are, however, fairly disjointed, and the resounding sensation is that Sundran (as an album) feels more like an experiment than it does a clear vision. It's an intriguing listening experience, mind you, with some truly compelling moments, but these points are left behind too quickly and leave a bittersweet final impression.
Elder (USA-MA) Reflections of a Floating World
Makes your body want to lie down and rest while making your mind want to surge like a glaring light bulb.

  • kingdedethefifth Hey, good job getting contributor dude. You've put some awesome feedback on my reviews before plus you reviewed all of Katatonias albums and that alone makes you awesome in my book.
