post #10606 of 16285

wow thanks markm1, great review

 

it's certainly not for me, i don't want to have to buy the gear (great business model though!) and i don't like the restriction on how much media you can have...  it sounds really simple and nice to use though, which my home server is not (although it's very functional, my wife just cannot figure it out :)

 

edit:  and to keep it metal, i picked up a couple Sigh albums based on the chatter a few pages back.  really neat stuff, i let my friend listen then he lent me a couple Rolo Tomassi albums, which is also very cool unique stuff

For sure, totally get that, it's not for everyone. It was a  right place right time thing for me as. A more audiophile friendly system was recommend by a fellow heafier that is in development:  http://myoliveone.com/Ones. Looks interesting.

 

Glad you like Sigh. I have Hagman's Hym which is pretty cool in addition to Inssomniphobia. I enjoy both quite a bit.

Glad to hear some fellow Sigh fans out there! My two favorite albums by them are, without a doubt, Imaginary Sonicscape and Hangman's Hymn, which are two pretty wildly different-sounding albums. I've been hunting for Sonicscape on vinyl for several years now, and if anyone's interested, I finally found a guy that does re-releases of metal albums on vinyl, and he goes all-out when he does it: http://www.darksymphonies.com/

I preordered Sonicscape as soon as it went up, and it came in last week! Some pics below:









The irony in all this is that my turntable is currently boxed up, so I have no idea how good it sounds... But it sure looks the mutt's nutts cool.gif

EDIT: Yes, I do realize I'm no Ansel Adams here, so please excuse my hobbit toes, boxcutter, and other deviations from high art in my photography biggrin.gif

When Hangmans's Hymn came out the release was mixed so dark and muddy. The first release had a reddish CD cover. It was actually re released again with a different brighter mix. The second mix has a blueish tint of the same original cover. It may be on a different label?

Sorry to say I purchased the first mix. I really could not believe they would even release such a thing. Although nowadays you do hear of current metal albums being redone sonically. Whitechapel's first release was just redone.

Very nice, I have two friends that picked up the LP release of Imaginary Sonicscape...it looks and sounds amazing!  I think it's still available here: http://www.darkdescentrecords.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6&products_id=3157

Does BtBAM's Parallax II sound better on vinyl in any way or is it the same mix/master? I've been contemplating on buying the album and not sure which format to get. Good high-res -files out there?

The DR of the CD version is poopy.

Who would have thought.

But I don't have a turntable so....I'm fine with my CD rip FLAC files :P

Really really awesome album btw.

Haven't heard Imaginary Soundscape....should probably grab that for my growing bizzaro-metal collection :-)

 

Did any pick up last year's Graveyard by any chance? Recommend? I have Hissing Blues....like it, don't necessarily love it as much as Witchcraft or old Pentagram.

Some pretty sick and twisted tunes.



The second halve of the song is almost too weird if you ask me :|

New Jucifer released last week:

 

http://jucifer-official.bandcamp.com/

 

For those of you who've never seen them live - 'Thee White Wall' (the custom made tower behind them) is probably one of the loudest thing I've ever heard.

 

 

This video is great, but it doesn't do their massive sound justice...so, so loud very_evil_smiley.gif

i adore jucifer, thanks for posting this...bandcamp dld imminent!

edit: well i got the new jucifer, and i must say it's way dirtier and more metal based than any of their other stuff. there are almost no clean vocals at all! very doomy sludge and even some blackened influence...i have (most?) their discography and IMO this is their heaviest by far. pretty cool but missing some of the stuff i love about some of their other work (namely the sweet clean vocals and mellower passages)

Oh these stupid....that is so dumb.
I've been waiting so long for this awesome album to come out and now look at this.

http://music.anagnorisis.com/album/beyond-all-light

The only way to get the digital download, is through purchasing a physical copy!
I don't want one right now! Shipping this thing to Germany would be too complicated right now...I just want the digital version :'(
/rant


You people really should check this album out.
That is how I like my BM :)

They have another great track here:

Oh well those vocals are quite decent, the musicianship is interesting as well

It is just really powerful and emotional music.
The mastermind of the band (forgot his name) has a really interesting background. He grew up in Samoa and the new album is influenced quiet a lot by all the horrible things he saw there.

post #10620 of 16285

Now from what I read the mastermind left after the first album. Did he come back?
