Just did some streaming while working on report cards at work (I'm a teacher and kids are out) on the worst sound possible-school PC-nothing blows me away here-but not listening under ideal circumstances.
I kind of dig Crowbar-I read they were sort of a combinationof Pantera and Melvins-two touchstones in my listening from bygone days. But, I'd rather listen to some cool Neurosis or real doom like YOB.
Misery Index wasn't bad-a little generic....the genres of DM elude me....little bit of a "core" vibe-closest reference point for me might be Jungle Rot-Kill on Command-but I like them much better....but similarly crunchy and shouty. I can definitely listen to them...just not blown away
Eyehategod-Meh-not a must have
So, uh, my question is where is the great Carcass (maybe the new Vader?) or Wattain-Sworn to the Dark or Enslaved (pick any album!) Always looking for the diamond in the ruff. All of these are B- to me.
Guess I'm in a bitchy mood. So much of what I'm hearing is derivitive and been there done that.
Back to work
