Lets Talk Metal - Page 946

post #14176 of 25417
Interesting to read what people think about De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. It may have sounded fresh when it came out dripping with the excitement only genre breaking albums can. But I feel the album was also an inspiration showing many the way.

I still totally love the record and still "feel it"


At first I thought AMG had a type of troll review with the purpose of garnering attention and ruckus? Now I guess that's just how folks feel.

Now I will return to listening to 2014s Woods Of Desolation being glad BM has survived along the way.

Battle Beast from Helsinki Finland is my personal favorite band by far. I can't classify them as I'm not too good with sub genres. My favorite songs are Justice and Metal, and Let it Roar

Another favorite is Thaurorod

Favorite Viking Metal HAS to be Alestorm

Saw them live in Amsterdam, supporting Nightwish. Hadn't heard them before (I'm from Finland), but yeah, they're really good.

 

On topic of Nightwish, you probably knew already, they have now a Dutch singer, After Forever's Floor Jansen:

Man, I loved Nightwish circa Ocean Born thru Nature Child. Therion from Vovin thru Lemuria/Sirius B. And early Tristania.

 

Will any of these genre bands put out any more classics?

 

Lately-I'm just not feeling it from these bands.

 

Maybe they were just too specific of a niche that has come and gone........

 

(edit: the last "great" symphonic album(s) I've enjoyed are Virgin Black's double Requiem Mezzo forte and Fortissimo which goes into Goth/Doomdeath territory-and that was like 6 years ago)

The new Epica album is supposed to be pretty good.

Let me know if you listen to it. I liked their first two and then lost interest.

Not bad, if you ask me. Some pretty neat riffs in there.
Of course it's just one track out of 13 so...

The Inquisition album is fantastic! There is so much depth to it, I simply can not stop listening to it. When you think you have heard all there is to be heard in this genre, along come these guys and just turn it upside down with every album. If you don't have it already: "into the infernal regions of the ancient cult" is a killer and I can't believe how they could sound this up to date back in 1998. Unbeliveable. Probably the best kept secret in the history of metal.

Too bad the vocals are so weird.
post #14187 of 25417

Perfectly complements the music in my opinion. Feels like you are involved ins some sort of ritual. I'm an oldschool metal guy, but the vocals never struck me as weird. Never even noticed, as it harmonizes with the music. I only read this opinion on forums, but never agreed with that. If anything, it is unique and is a plus. Black metal is not supposed to be a restrictive genre anyway. Love it!

post #14188 of 25417
They sound pretty close to Immortal's vocals, so I don't know if unique is the right word. Sounds like a frog croaking to me.
post #14189 of 25417

"Sounds like a frog croaking to me." So crows screaming and shrieking is OK and is considered a standard in Black metal, but a frog croaking is weird...?

 

Immortal sounds very different to me. Inquisition's vocals is much more raw and is like chanting. Anyway, Inquisition does a lot more for me than almost any band in the genre since Bathory. And yes, I like Immortal a lot!

Hmmm? I think I'd have to spend some time with it. Definitely slick and well done. On the one hand, I think the beauty and beast vocals is kind of dated and done to death (bad pun). But, they do it pretty well. Simone has a great voice-no question there. My guess, is in Europe where there is a bigger market for popular metal, this style is maybe still a "thing". No real ground broken here. But, WTF, I kind of dig the retro style.

 

I used to listen to Within Temptation and liked them-and they've gone a more rock approach. Almost hum drum.

 

If I'm going melodic, I probably like straight up memodeth or something like last year's Carcass or whatnot.

 

Thanks for posting.
