I know from the Schiit threads that those guys do not seem to be fans of USB.

Cheers

There is gonna be a technical article soon about USB audio and why guys like Schiit are anti-USB at least initially....

hardstyle, right on.  i much prefer breakbeats myself, lately i've been guiltily enjoying dubstep / trap music.  i have a pretty decent electronic collection, although i usually prefer it on the big hi-fi than headphones, as nothing can substitute for real earth shaking bass LOL.  same with slam / brutal death, those big bass lines just sound better on a big ol system

Agreed its excellent blasting through speakers

Oh! By the way, I thought the new Beneath album was no match for their last release

You know of these guys?

Got some new stuff today. Thanks Redarmoose, Ferday and Torgdor for some kick ass recommendations. Here's what's on my current rotation:

 

816FiVAA%2BzL._SL1432_.jpg

Just starting with this one! Sounds good so far...

 

91mr7M2eRRL._SL1500_.jpg

First couple of songs quick listen-**ck yeah!

 

Atilla is a mad scientist81IfO6BczoL._SL1500_.jpg

91Sol7lrRiL._SL1425_.jpg

Almost too mainstream and melodic to be true metal-but it's a good rock record. I will file in same category as last year's excellent QUOTA....definitely has a place in my "rock" listening.

 

810-qM7BHOL._SL1200_.jpg

Can't get enough of Swans To Be Kind-not metal, but.....

 

81pcuujWETL._SL1200_.jpg

My electronic sound and fury album signifying a great deal of classical influenced beauty and vengeance

 

 

81m9pb27y9L._SL1500_.jpg

I say it's an improvement....I guess not everyone agrees. And, the bonus concert is raw-Paris 1969-a little rough sounding.

 

also dig Morbus Chron, Lord Mantis and Triptykon....had those for a while...but still on rotation. Not a bad year so far.

This is news. Every year they just choose a great album from the early days and tour playing the whole thing start to finish. No one else could possibly come close to playing their music. This way people get to hear it live if they did not get to the first time.

It is hard to write new stuff, especially when folks believe your best writing years are behind you. They will make bank with this tour.

The logo is the best part.

The new Vader album really ticks a lot of boxes for me. Probably my age, what I grew up with, I often find extreme metal rooted in thrash with old fashioned head banging instantly gratifying. If I read a review that says a band is heavily influenced by Slayer-I'm probably going to like it. In fact this album reminds me of a more extreme version of Slayer. A little like Kreator's-Phantom Antichrist. Luv at first listen. Good call Redcarmoose. Love this schiit.

 

 Something like Dead Congregation takes a little more work on my part as a listener. But, I usually get there....I have to work at true extremity unless its Black Metal.

If you don't have Welcome To The Morbid Reich it's a great complement to Vaders 2014 release.

Yes, I always thought of Vader as being this band that is almost the reaction to Slayer. Like a group of Polish kids sat around listening to Slayer then thought that this is how we make extreme metal. They just keep doing what they do. It is very easy to listen to, where Esoteric Warfare is going to be this non access listen till stuff starts to click mentally. Mayhem has always been much more work to listen to in my experience. Mayhem maybe tries to do it. The sound of "Mayhem", changing tempo, chord progressions never used before, chords never used before. They are experimental, and they seem like they don't care to be popular, only real!

Here are my current favorites from this year:

 

Pyrrhon - The Mother of Virtues

Artificial Brain - Labyrinth Constellation

Soreption - Engineering the Void

Morbus Chron - Sweven

Dirge - Hyperion

Yesterday I bought Horizon Ablaze - Dodsverk and have only listened to it once, but it sounds pretty good

 

 

Here are some that are intriguing:

 

Origin
Yob (the teaser for this has me really excited)

Puteraeon - Crawling Chaos

The Great Old Ones - Tekeli-Li

Infestus - The Reflecting Void

New Archspire

New Panopticon

Entrails Demo Collection (new-ish, I'm pumped for this one)

Diskord's new EP (yay!)

I'm a little surprised you weren't already into vader! I got in at de profundiis in 95, and they instantly scratched that slayer itch and I've been a big fan ever since. I would have to think very hard about whether there's another metal band that's been as consistent as vader over all these years

And happy canada day to all you Canadian head bangers \m/
