320 Kbps MP3


With the DAPs I listen to an album until my attention disorder takes over then switch to another album or favorite song. Only 20% of the time do I make a full album listen, unless the album becomes a favorite then I play it all multiple times.

I am more apt to listen to full albums on the home rig. My most critical listening is always on the home rig where I can hear every detail.

Still I have been able to get away from listening only to sound quality. Years ago I fell into a bad habit of letting production quality determine what albums I listened to and for how long. Now I'm listening to musical ability and song writing placing production into third place.

At my lowest point I was litterly only listening to the system and not the music at hand?

Did you post Incantation on your year end list? I think you did. I've been having fun listening to various lists and recommendations......pretty good album!

I did not place it this year. I am glad you like it. For some reason I have yet to get excited about it. What I mentioned was that Dead Congregation filled the Incantation slot this year for me.

Much of Incantation is classic underground death metal but normally it clicks on the moment you start to play it and then just gets better with each listen. I did see it on some people's lists from this year. So I guess it goes in the "best of 2014/15" possibilities pile.

I think it's a good album, very evil sound...but I'm with moose, dead congregation did a better incantation than incantation this year!

There's still so much more music to get from '14 but I'll pick at it next year

Lol i know what you mean.Some albums are so badly recorded  that you think that your system has become defective.

Thanks guys,

It must have been some other lists then. Ferday  you pretty much turned me onto Dead Congregation. It is really good-evil stuff.( Note to self: time to listen to that one again for comparison)

 

You two have such a good knowledge and history of the genre. I really just started dipping my toes into extreme metal around 2005/6. I remember buying Opeth's Ghost Reveries and some DT melodeth and then some Nile and Behemtoh and went from there.

 

On the BM side, I remember it well. I read some good reviews of Gorgoroth's Ad Marjarem....if it's a good album, I like to think I'm open to pretty much any style. Threw it in my car driving home on a cold winter night after dark. It actually scared me :bigsmile_face: The hair on the back of my neck and goose bumps-I thought it was like Satan reaching through the speakers and grabbing me by the jugular. At the time it was the most disturbing thing I ever heard. Love it!

 

Re: Incantation-I agree it's not the best DM release of the year-but among other things-I have a taste for heavy, plodding doomy DM-reminds me a bit of Aspyyx's recent stuff which I have. I really like Death the Brutal Way and Disma......

 

Fun going through all these recommendations. Just way to much I can ever listen to!

Fun going through all these recommendations. Just way to much I can ever listen to!

Pentagram (1994) A true classic of the BM genre, full of atmosphere and energy. Great songs becoming clearly a different band straight off with their first LP.
Antichrist (1996) I would guess this is most folks favorite from the early three? Great memorable songs, you can scream along to.😝
Under the Sign of Hell (1997) These first three I think of as one group, they have the same cover and sound connected in some way. I remember they remastered all three about a week after I purchased them. Just kept my original CDs as I liked the sound of them. The remasters could be an improvement I don't know?
Destroyer (1998) My memory tells me this is one of their most brutal and fast. Still great form in classic style, Reminds me of Marduk from the same time, maybe the whole war thing going on? Classic underground recording quality and feel.
Incipit Satan (2000) If they were experimental then this is the album they tried everything on. Maybe better sound than early records, one of a kind record for the band.
Twilight of the Idols (2003) This album I like to think reflects a new sound for the band. Not as loved as early work by me but nice none the less. Modern black metal.
Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam (2006) Don't listen to it or don't own it I can't remember.
Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt (2009) I think I heard it once.

Their live DVD is one of the best Black Metal DVDs ever. How many bands have naked people on crosses, fire and 50 gallons of pig blood? No wonder they got into trouble. The trouble just made the show more famous and gave them free advertising for the DVD set.

Dark Funeral has been a band I have always loved more than Marduk or Gorgoroth.


For me they seemed to almost represent a new style and pushed the genre farther along in more traditional ways, opposed to Mayhem with the Grand Decloration Of War attempt. For me there was a time when I thought they were the only band keeping the Black Metal flame alive.

So with a slight personal change-up we now see Dark Funeral return to form and prominence. Will their output will top current Black Metal offerings by luck? I think so!

The song shows how simple can become powerful, how they have a slightly different sound but also never left their trademark sound.

Anyone who is just getting into classic Black Metal should pick-up their giant 2009 era DVD sets.They offer two.

Any album is a good choice as I feel they have never put out a bad record. Even the live CD is great. So happy to see them return. They fill a hole in Black Metal which is needed at this point and time, just like they filled the hole in 2000.

A laugh.................
But now is the time......you could litterly start at the top of this list and work your way down. The 2000 EP In the Sign album is not to be missed. It gets combined with a Von EP nowdays or better yet it may be combined with 1994s Dark Funeral EP.


Maybe the most intense is Vobiscum Satanas and the next one Diabolis Interium. If I was just to get two CDs I'd get those.

Studio albums
The Secrets of the Black Arts (1996)
Vobiscum Satanas (1998)
Diabolis Interium (2001)
Attera Totus Sanctus (2005)
Angelus Exuro pro Eternus (2009)
Live albums
De Profundis Clamavi Ad Te Domine (2004)
Extended plays
Dark Funeral (1994)
Teach Children to Worship Satan (2000)
In the Sign… (2000)
Video albums
Attera Orbis Terrarum - Part I (2007)
Attera Orbis Terrarum - Part II (2008)



Yep............................................................in many ways one of the greatest Black Metal bands to walk the face of the earth. And they are baaaaack.

I also really really like Dark Funeral :smile_phones:
Can't say that I'm mad about them having a new vocalist (especially because I also like Negator).
