Also, now that I've read the new Angry Metal Guy review for Deciever of the Gods, I'm probably gonna have to actually check out that album now. Im of a similar opinion to his own, WOoOS is the only Amon Amarth album that i like, so i feel like alot of what he wrote would apply to me as well.


I was able to get a sample of the new Amon Amarth and its the first album by them I like. I didn't even like the DVD I purchased of them a couple of years ago. But.....they have changed their sound!! What a great year this is! Viking out, serous death/thrash sound in.

 

Yes, As far as BDM.... no more infection of core/death/metal in their sound. You gota love that too! Some folks would hear it in the last couple albums, I could a little, they are great now!

It really would be a toss up between Isa, Ruun and Vertebrae, though I choose Isa only because it was their modern day brake-through and reemergence and renewed fame and popularity. It was actually shocking to me to hear as it was their new sound.

The disks are a light marble gray. I think it was the first pressing, the sound is great. It is just a huge harmonic pressing, even on Back on Black, which I think mine is too, it is the bomb.

Yeah i like the viking/norse themed lyrics, but idefinitley fell in love the with the thrashy sound of With Oden on Our Side, but the problem was that it was one of the only cds of theirs to sound like that, so it makes me really happy that the new one does as well, ill have to go get a pre order in. Though from Angry Metal Guy's review he specifically states that its louder than With Oden on Our Side was, i wonder if the vinyl still retains those dynamics.

I agree completely, i loved Nocturnal, then Deflorate was mostly just a rehash of it, though it does have two amazing songs, Black Valor and I Will Return. But then Ritual came out, and showed the maturation and influence of Ryan Knight that i really wanted to hear in Deflorate. And now Everblack i think blends the newer ritual sound very well with their older miasma/nocturnal sound, which i think will appeal more to the older fans that didnt like ritual as much, but stil has the ritual influence. good stuff coming out of The Black Dahlia Murder

Well said.. People usually haven't listened to them much would just say that they are core. BDM rules and so does Amon Amarth..

I really didn't care for Black Dahlia Murder before so if they took the core out like Job For A Cowboy did (albeit different styles) then that is fantastic.

 

Also for a blend between Enslaved and Amon Amarth:

Looks like the gate-fold 2x gray pressings were the first Back on Black editions and limited to 2000 copies in 2004.

Figured so. Maybe I can lull myself to sleep thinking the newer plain black pressings might be in better condition (without shelf-worn sleeves and tiny scratches on discs.)

I guess once again I'm just old, and don't know what metalcore really is, cause I was sure BDM were core (I always thought they were deathcore actually). All I know is ive been a big fan since miasma and I love the new album LOL. I find the songs really catchy and memorable, and just a lot of fun. They've really meshed with the new lineup

Was checking out Phil Anselmo's new album Walk Through Exits Only (The amazon previews) and I can say they don't really sound that good compared to his older stuff. I think The Purple EP was poor in comparison to his Pantera and the beginning of Down days. In my opinion, he can't top Nola when it comes to his solo projects, or Down's newer stuff

I'll second some of the earlier comments, you can't go wrong with Isa. It's their "Blackwater Park" so to speak in terms of bringing fusing BM w/ prog. At first the juxtaposition between clean lyrics and often beautiful passages with harsh lyrics takes some getting used to. But, I've really grown to like it. I have all their full lengths since Isa. They're all good. If you like Isa. Ruun follows in the same kind of vein. They're largest departure is probably Vertabrea-they really delve into psychedelic Pink Floyd kinds of sounds. I would call it their least metal or most mellow. I actually really like Vetabrea very much-almost a post metal Neurosis vibe with weird ambient sounds.

 

Riitiir is quite good-current release-some find it excessive and could use some trimming. I think it's really strong, though.

 

All their stuff is great.

 

Oh, yeah-Frost-an earlier album-sung in Norwegian I believe is an old fashioned Viking/folk BM release-some of it reminds me of Satyricon's Dark Medieval Times. Really different than their more recent output, but a unique, engaging listen.

It was getting boring being the only Indian metalhead on this thread. Assuming you are a metalhead and an Indian beerchug.gif

Hortor started the concept of "white" or "holy unblack", which provided some controversy amongst the kvlt as the original 2004 Hortor release (which is actually pretty good) was released as a regular old black album and some of the tr00 got pretty pissed off about it.  LOL and all that, i've always been fascinated with the concept of good and evil in metal, since to me black metal describes a style or feeling rather than the content per se...it was mentioned in a documentary that i can't remember the name of and i think it was Watain that was pretty pissy about the concept of Christian black metal
