  4. Last.fm "similar artists"
  5. Sputnik new reviews
  6. RateYourMusic top lists for anything I haven't tried yet
  7. Bandcamping

 

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

Ok, listened to the new Satyricon. 

 

Not bad per say, but I definitely wouldn't buy it.

I've always thought of Satyricon as kinda... not that awesome.

+1

 

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.

The new Boris is bar none the worst mastered record I've all year. What a god damn shame....ugh...this is horrid.

Are you not a big Boris fan? Because this is how Boris sounds when they turn up the volume. Go back and check out Heavy Rocks and Pink. I'd even call this their best SINCE Pink. I mean this is what they DO.

I have all three CDs. This one sounds even worse to me, but perhaps I am getting too sensitive to INSANE levels of compression. This is really st00pid.

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.

You nailed it.

When they compress down do like DR3 for their noise/drone records, yeah, I get it.

But this is RIDICULOUS.

I'm a big satyricon fan. The new album is like many of theirs...a concept that didn't quite get there...but I like the no distortion pedal sound. Satyr is one of my favorite BM vocalists, creepy but rarely over the top.

I think of them as the Entombed of BM

I will just leave this here.

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?
