wav and FLAC are virtually identical, save for space (no pun intended)

 

But to be honest you could save the flac, then convert to mp3 320cbr and still be fine.

No way man I'm going lossless all the way, I'm done with impure music. I've heard enough lossy files in my life

Correction, WAV and FLAC are identical. Period.

Nice, I rarely get to go to any concerts, because of the usual days they take place on. So, school and work get in the way.

Man this thread is great... giving a quick listen to the first song of each of those albums on the front page I either haven't heard before or haven't heard in a long time... and finding so much great stuff. Thank you.

Yes, been into em from about 2003 on. Their last album was great. Really no one like them. How many Blackend Death bands do you even see from Austria? They may have smoothed out a little in the last 10 years but have stayed quality and tight. If anything the brutality has given way to some nice melody. They are liked by fans but seem maybe a little underrated for how really good they are?

p.s - you have a duplicate cover in there too :happy_face1:

Palms = Chino Moreno + Isis = Awesome

Never heard/heard of, no comment

 

Downloaded due to reviews, it's ok but I got bored before it finished so didn't buy

 

Bought it because I liked the cover but it's too much for me

 

Good album!

You were pretty spot on for In Solitude (hated it) and Portal (mellower than their previos stuff but still obnoxious). The Voices disc is okay. Still prefer Akercocke's back catalog. So much for year end lists. I did enjoy the few tracks from the new Gorguts, but that's pretty much the only album on any of those lists I have liked.

 

The Raven pretty much sent me down a Steven Wilson spiral for all weekend. It was either his solo stuff, Porcupine Tree, or Blackfield. I did spare a few minutes for a little Om. Wilson just does a great job at production that it's just a joy to listen to on my headphones.

Not seen you here for a fairly long time. Mr. BME :veryevil:

7. Anciients - Heart of Oak

 

 

6. An Autumn For Crippled Children - Try Not to Destroy Everything You Love

 


 


4. Persefone - Spiritual Migration

 

 

 

I would have liked to include Plini but I don't quite consider it "metal". Here's my full list if anyone's curious: https://rateyourmusic.com/list/LunarCollapse/albums_of_2013/

I have heard these but was never able to spend too much time. Have to revisit them once again.

You can spend a lot of time with Steven Wilson and his various tentacles.

 

If you're listening to the PT back catalog,  I recommend

 

 Porcupine Tree-Stars Die: The Delerium Years '91-97. It came out in 2002-It's a 2 disc box set of his 90's experimental prog period. If you like slightly off beat prog, its really good. 

 

Allmusic-The delirium Years: "narrows its focus to the group's psychedelic, pre-ambient Pink Floyd era that relied heavily on guitarist/founder Steve Wilson's more pop-oriented -- but still epic -- compositions".

 

It's much less polished than Abstentia, Deadwing or Fear of a Bland planet-the PT studio albums I'm familiar with. But, great music. Less of a metal influence- you won't hear those great big power riffs that Wislon started using after he produced Blackwater Park.

 

Also, If you haven't heard his collaboration with Mikael Åkerfeldt-Storm Corrosion from 2012-I would recommend that also. Quite a departure from Opeth or PT

 

I know none of this is metal, but a couple of years ago he was asked to remix the King Crimson catalog. I've been investigating KC for the first time this year. They are pricey box sets-usually with 1-2 CDs (bonus tracks, demos and all the rest) and DVD-but the sound is awesome and are mixed for surround sound. S. Wilson is known for his surround sound mixing skills. If interested they are the "40th  anniversary" series not to be confused with the "30th anniversary" series that Wilson wasn't involved with. I don't know why it took me so long-but anyone that considers themselves a prog fan should at least listen to the first KC-album-In the Court of the Crimson King. Their later stuff actually verges into an almost metal guitar sound on some of their songs. I have Red and you can hear a heavier sound on at least one song.

 

Nothin wrong with a little prog thrown in the metal mix:atsmile:
