finally got some new metal LOL...i'm really glad i'm not into vinyl or shopping like this would broke me...(i got another 10-12 albums in other genres also)
black sabbath, black dahlia, dillinger escape, fell voices, leucosis, altar of plagues, ash borer/fell voices split, leprous, QOTSA, immolation
only listened to sabbath and dillinger so far, great stuff from both of those guys. waiting till late night to really listen to leucosis, i'm excited based on trogdor's review
Please post your reaction to your purchases. Several of those are on my want list-particularly Altar of Plagues. I'm on the fence about the new DT. I've streamed it a couple of times.....I want to love it, but not sure it really grabs me. OTH, I thought the Black Sabbath (despite the sound issues) was a more than respectable return to their origins. I like the new Kylesa release as well-but I like these kinds of hybrid sludge/metal/punk genres and I loved their last release....just like their vibe. Still making my mind about the new Deafhaven, but overall I think it's a keeper. I also enjoy prog-I checked out-I'm pretty much streaming everything I can via Sonos that I can before buying-check out Tesseract who I haven't heard before....eh....interesting...no Mars Volta, but not bad. I'm curious to hear Leprous-haven't yet. And, leaving metal for straight up prog-Steven Wilson's "The Raven..." IMO is a slam dunk tour de force....not metal at all, tho.
