My personal favorite is New Obscurantis Order.

They're all great works, honestly. One observation is that they dial back the "insanity" each new album, but mature their songwriting as a result.

I consider the latter album to be much more vicious and focused than the former - but yes, slightly less insane, hehe.

 

Redemption Process was also cool because it was more sophisticated while retaining most of the band's energy.

Yeah-but still, thinking of all the polite indie/alternative listening friends I've had over the years that probably couldn't sit through the entire album given the vocals. What metal listeners think of as "lite" the rest of the 99 % probably think is extreme.

 

 Ha-if I tried playing it for my wife-she'd give me on of those-You've gotta be schitting me...turn that crap off-look :biggrin:

Yeah, that's a solid listen. I'll have to add that to my gym rotation. Same with Erra.

It's possible going back and listening to it again after all this time would help my perspective. That seems to happen a lot. I'll dislike certain albums, but give them a chance again a while down the road and really like it.

My favorite album of theirs too, and probably the best metalcore I've heard to date.

I thought it was great, but I feel that An Autumn for Crippled Children's album (being of the same genre and year) surpassed it in almost every way.

OMG. I actually have an album you metalcore guys are talking about. I was beginning to feel really out of it:tongue:

So much this. I love the album but it isn't the best for even an AOTY. People denying that is black metal have their asses in the hole that ostriches use

I know one of the brothers in WITTR said they disassociate with black metal because they don't subscribe to the ideology, so they don't want to be called black metal out of respect

Personally I think BM is just a style of music, but I understand why the tr00 kvltists would like to keep it for themselves. Anyways I digress, sorry for the OT. I just find it very interesting and entertaining, especially the "battle" between the unholy black and the holy white metal crowds wink.gif

I think Sunbather is a great album, but I think everyone got wayyyy too ahead of themselves with how "groundbreaking" or whatever it was. It was just a good black metal album that had a gaze element to it that really clicked with people. They have style, good for them. I still don't listen to the album more than once a month.

 

As far as black metal, I like a lot of BM influenced music, but I really can't get into any of the old school or really "kvlt" stuff. I also get really sick of seeing people that love to use BM as a vehicle for spouting their retarded, hate filled rants. Varg Vikernes is a prick and I couldn't think of a worse person to be, arguably, the most prolific figure in the genre. It just attracts bad people.

I tend to like metal that defies description or genre. That's what I liked about Sunbather. I agree it's not the most amazing album that ever hit, but it's quite interesting. I very much got on the postmetal train around the time Isis put out Oceanic and Panopticon. I think they combined qualities of various genres-including an Isis vibe with BM, maybe a bit of Hardcore vocals as well.....shimmering bliss metal. It was a cool album.
