Does anyone know what song this is? It's from the Sonic Sense Pro Audio demo.. the last song from it.
My arsenal of discovery goes in basically this order:
http://metalbandcamp.com/ is also a fantastic resources. They're not comprehensive, I mean they do what they can but there's not everything there, but there's also a bunch in the archives that I would have missed otherwise. http://abest.bandcamp.com/ is AMAZING.
I often wonder if we have older albums we haven't given a new chance to because our memories of them being good or bad are largely thanks to substandard headphones. I was definitely shocked by a couple I thought were noisy and ill produced where it turned out they just REALLY needed top-notch speakers.
That's cool and pretty smart. I really heavily on last.fm, /mu/, metal kingdom and reviews
Their smartphone app isn't bad either. Their library is fairly robust, and sound quality is good. It's $9 a month, but the amount of albums I listen to in full every month more than justifies that price.
New releases make it to Spotify fairly quickly as well.
I think it's because the composition is a lot more layered. On an album like Pink where the guitar lines are just, y'know, a guitar, the ultra-compression and overdrive doesn't overwhelm, but Noise has a lot going on.
Satyrcon is one of those bands for me that you have to be pretty selective. Some of it is great-but some of it kind of blows. Dark Medieval Times and Nemesis Divina are BM essentials for me. I love the folk BM sounds of DMT especially. Volcano is also pretty good IMO. After that-meh?
