markm1...

 Awesome! Dont worry about age Im at least as old as you and I still love this music. I also still go to shows. Its not wild and crazy stupid or anything unless u get into the pit thing and I dont....not anymore! Check out some metal bands at local shows near u....it's really fun. I travel 200-300 miles to see bands sometimes. Enjoy what you enjoy...FTW(not "for the win")...huh? lol

 

Anyway....

 

Just ordered the new Psycroptic, Skeletonwitch and Kataklysm!! Psycroptic is a terriffic band and their album Ob(Servant) was just a masterpiece. Hope the new one is as good or better. Ive seen Skeletonwitch live 2-3  and they really put on an energetic show. Seen Kataklysm once, and they're great as well. Psycroptic doesn't get off the continent much it seems...

Panopticon did a really good split with Vestiges that can be downloaded for free. Check out Panopticon's drumming on the last track! It's definitely my favorite song on the split.

Lulu was the most entertaining release of 2011. I never laughed so hard at a review in my life!

edit: I need to listen to The Mantle. I've never really heard Agalloch before. Thanks for the tip.

That was quite good. Have you heard the Dylan/Burzum? Sounds interesting to say the least!

 

I'm real big on Agalloch. I'm guessing you'd like most anything by them. I think of them as black metal for people who don't necessarily like BM (and I like a fair amount of BM). They are very atmospheric. They do a good job of utilizing BM elements with folk, post rock and even gothic doom.

 

I think The Mantle (2002)  is a good place to start in their neo folk vein. It's their least "metal" meaning it's not very extreme all things considered. I would put it up there as classic in the genre along with stuff like Moonsorrow and early Enslaved and Satyricon. But much less black.

 

I really enjoy their last two-Marrow of the Spirit (their last-2010) is a good mix of all of their styles. Marrow of the Spirit is fantastic IMO.

 

Ashes Against the Grain (2006) has less of a folk influence, but very atmospheric and more post rock-yet nothing like Isis, etc. Just a really unique album.

 

Pale Folklore, their first from '99. It's also good, but they didn't have the production they needed for their epic sound. But, it's a great release-female vocals that never came back on any of their other albums.

 

You can't go wrong with the Mantle, though. I can listen to that album time and time again. I thought it might even be laid back enough for my wife. Er....that was a mistake.

 

I prefer Agalloch, WITR, etc. to the kind of almost power metal folk metal-stuff like Turisas and Ensiferum is less interesting to me.

Oh, I was totally joking about the Dylan Burzum thing. I'm not sure if Varg Vikernes would do a collab with anybody (or maybe flip that, I'm not sure anybody would collab with him). He murdered one of his Mayhem band mates and burned down a bunch of churches.

 

So Agalloch is good. I prefer Marrow of the Spirit over The Mantle. Really good stuff, I will likely buy it when I get home.

 

MorbidToaster, I have been mulling over the idea of buying a turntable and getting into vinyl for a little while now. I have some questions though, and if you don't mind throwing some answers my way, I'd appreciate it. I move a lot, would this put a vinyl collection/turntable at risk? I wouldn't want to invest a lot of money into the turntable, so is it worth it? In most cases I could buy three or four Bandcamp downloads for the price of one vinyl LP with shipping cost... is it worth it?

OK-I'm just a gullible dork. Yeah-I guess if they made an album together that would make a little noise...socialist protest folk and BM fascissm or something.

Finished listening a few hours ago. It's insane. Bottom line.

+1. It looks incredible up close, too.

 

I'm listening to Rudess/Minnemann/Levin right now. First impressions: it's jazzier than Liquid Tension (not surprising with Minnemann there) and the drum recording is some of the best I've ever heard. I like it.

So, uh, is vinyl worth the cost? Sorry to be a pest.

I don't own a vinyl rig/setup but I've been long enough in this thread to know how everyone here would answer this question:

Yes, it is worth the money. Metal CDs are compressed like all hell. Vinyls are not (most of the time).

That is a first. I actually do suggest you go back and listen to Ashes and Mantle again just to be sure! ;-)
