post #11131 of 16590

I totally think Ob(Servant) was a way better record. It was actually my first music recommendation from this thread that I liked years ago.


The 2012 Sylosis release was in my top 15 for 2012, just really well produced and recorded. World class drums and guitar. I also started listening to their early two full albums before it.

Also I kinda think that just as Psycroptics 2012 release was not near as good as the previous Psycroptic release. And the Sylosis 2012 release not as good as their previous effort. IMO.


Still Sylosis 2012 needed a ton of plays and effort before I got it. That was maybe the situation with you. You played it but needed to spend some quality time to "get" it.



I don't remember if it was you who recommended "With Oden on Our Side? I just received that and do like it a ton. So now I have two Amon Amarth albums that are great. Who knew?

But I'm doing something similar

 

I got this guy last year based on a cursory listen to a few tracks...and never got really into it after that. but right now I'm really digging this cd

 

 

 

2008 was such a long, long time ago!biggrin.gif

All of their LPs are quite good - I would suggest Two Hunters.

Not 100% Metal, but fidelity in modern music prevails with the new NIN album. So hyped.

Searched for some atmospheric/folk metal and was led to a last.fm page containing many artists. Went through and found a bunch I like. Just ordered these three from amazon:

 

Viides Luku: Havitetty 
Moonsorrow

 

Urd 
Borknagar

 

Sagas 
Equilibrium

 

Can't wait!

^This Moonsorrow album is in my alltime top 3 ♥
I was really really into Equilibrium a few years ago (saw them live 2 times) but they sounded a bit too...."artificial" for me after a while. Same thing with Ensiferum.
I still love the last track on the Sagas album. Mana is just wonderful.

Really good picks. Borknagar and Moonsorrow are both favorites.

+ 1 on Moonsorrow...they're in their own league really. Along with WITR (Two Hunters in partic)-be ready for a couple of very long songs..amost one extended piece for the length of the release. I don't always have the time or patience. The music is just killer, tho.

 

I've got the Equilibrium which is definitely over the top symphonic blackened metal. Lots of folk and orchestral elements. I'ts quite good...almost" world" extreme music. None of it's in English BTW. Quite robust, beautiful, soundtrack like. Epic might be the right word.

 

Borknagar are quite interesting. I got into them a bit when first learning about BM. After falling in love with Empereor and Ihsahn's style, I checked them out. They're a super group of sorts-side project. I find them to be more cerebral than offering an emotional connection-not atmospheric I would say. Mushuggah is the same way for me. But, they're good, complex. I have Empericism from 2001. It's quite interesting, even though it's not a CD I listen to that much. Quite a bit of prog...maybe a symphonic Enslaved would be a reference point, but not as classic IMO as Enslaved. Enslaved, BTW, while proggy, proggy, proggy...are a great band with some folkish overtures and definitely worth checking out if you haven't already. I would place them in my "essental BM" box...but transcend the BM tag.

I've got that Sagas release as well-Equilibrium which is definitely over the top symphonic blackened metal. Lots of folk and orchestral elements. Pretty unique IMO. I'ts quite good...almost" world" extreme music. None of it's in English BTW so it all kind of blends in for me and very bombastic-classical sounding at times.... Quite robust, beautiful, soundtrack like. Epic might be the right word.
