Albums of the moment

(1/15) > >>

Well, the idea of this thread is to list the new albums or bands you've been listening lately, no matter if they actually are recently released albums or not. Feel free to add a description or links.
I got the idea from another forum and I think it's a good way of giving and taking recommendations

So, here I go:

Murder Construct - self-tilted EP: another supergroup, this time in the deathgrind style
Ehnahre - "The Man Closing Up": experimental death doom, very chaotic, ugly and sick. Great!
Ramesses, whole discography: sludge/stoner doom, even if the Metal Archives says they play death/doom
Aderlating - "Dying Of The Light": dark ambient/noise, very creepy, same guy from Gnaw Their Tongues
Monolithe, Nortt, Tyranny and Celestiial, whole discographies: great funeral doom bands
Dylath-Leen - "Insecure" and "Semeļon": atmospheric death metal. I saw this band's name on a MFVF review a few weeks ago, and I hadn't too much faith in them, but once I listened to their albums I loved them!

And a few that deserve higher levels of detail :P

Shining (Norway, not to be mistaken with the Swedish black metal band) - "Blackjazz": well, this here is probably the most groundbreaking album of 2010. This formerly acoustic jazz band has managed to create a unique and hard to label style of music. You'll find a good dose of technique with very strong progressive and electronic/industrial influences, along with extreme metal, noise, black metal screams and a monster of a sax player, but sounding not quite like any of these styles.
This is the first song's video:
Warning: it may trigger a seizure XD

Again, thank you Kjetil! :D

Triptykon - "Eparisteria Daimones" (and also the "Shatter" EP): the current band of former Celtic Frost guitarist and vocalist Tom G. Warrior. Doom metal with death, black and gothic influences, mind-blowing riffs, some great solos and a couple of quieter parts to add variety. I've been listening to this for 3 days and I already think it's one of the best doom albums of 2010!

Servants Of The Apocalyptic Goat Rave - self-titled: "break core". That's how this insane style of electronic/industrial/whatever music is called. This is completely crazy! I had never listened to something like this before :o
Thank you Tjeerd!

Sailors With Wax Wings - self-titled: an unbelievable doom/ambient/post-rock supergroup. Heck, their line-up is so awesome it sounds like a joke: Ted Parsons (Swans/Godflesh/Prong), Colin Marston (Krallice/Behold... The Arctopus), Aidan Baker (Nadja), Simon Scott (Slowdive), Dominick Fernow (Prurient/Cold Cave), Vern Rumsey (Unwound), Hildur Gudnadottir (Mśm/Throbbing Gristle/The Knife), Aaron Stainthorpe (My Dying Bride), Jonas Renkse (Katatonia), Marissa Nadler, J. Leah, James Blackshaw, [and artwork by] David Tibet (Current 93) and Faith Coloccia (Mamiffer/Pyramids).
The atmospheres they create are incredible! Another of the best doom albums of 2010!

That's it for now. I hope the thread succeds ::)

Can we discuss them too? Other than ''cool albums'' and things like that? :P

Of course! That would make the thread even better ;D


Caedo's second demo (according to metal-archives). A great addition to any collection of Slavic Black Metal recordings of the last couple of years. If you liked the hypnotic and beautiful black metal of early Darkthrone and Burzum, then this is a treat! Especially the song Bolesť (spomienky na priepasť) is very haunting! I have been playing this demo countless times the last week.

Bolesť (spomienky na priepasť): [personal favourite]

I will listen to the ones you posted, Funeralord, probably tomorrow ;) I'm finally done with school for this semester!

Congratulations on finishing school!
That song on youtube sounded pretty good, but, what's the rar file's password?

White Moth - self-titled: "Sailors With Wax Wings part 2". This is the other project featuring the same sounds-like-a-joke unbelievable line-up from Sailors With Wax Wings. This was recorded at the same time than the SWWW album. I'm just listening to this for the second time as I write this, and it's awesome. Much more black metal-oriented than SWWW, considerably shorter (only 34:40) with some hip-hop influences (:o), keeping the huge amounts of atmosphere, but with a more aggressive approach. MASSIVE. Highly recommended!
