Nice one! Now that I think about it, I don't have any German metal.

How about some Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult?

German bands for the most part don't seem to get the same attention world wide as Scandinavian bands do. I'm not sure why that is. Tons of black and death metal, some extreme varieties, much less folk and progressive than you'll find in other parts of the world. Keyboards tend to be used a lot.

It's always interesting to see geographic trends in music like that. And that's probably why I don't have any. I'm not a big fan of raw/brutal death metal.

Yep. Aside from the obvious (and I'm not sure Rammstein even qualifies as metal) Kreator and Blind Guardian are probably Germany's biggest metal bands. There's a ton of black and death metal there, but what gets the most attention outside of Germany are their thrash and power metal bands (Gamma Ray, Sodom, Edguy, Obscura) and to a somewhat lesser extent gothic metal like Lacrimosa.

By the way, aside from being brickwalled, Soundgarden is a general disappointment. Just sounds like another Audioslave album, instantly forgettable.

I actually recently watched their latest music video on The New Review site. Awful, I mean just plain terrible.

Thanks for this, Cobalt is the little black gem no one really knows about (which is shocking because they are on the revered Profound Lore).

And I am embarrassed to say that I don't know Enochian Crescent, will check them out.

Highly underrated band. Their older stuff has a certain eerieness that their later work lacks. Their album "Telecvovim" is one of the bm albums I grew up on.

See, i think her vocals on this song are really what makes it for me, probably gonna buy this one. But im a big fan of female fronted power metal, Battle Beast and Triosphere being other awesome examples

Its on Spotify, so I gave it a whirl. Its not bad by no means. There are a few nice highlights for me, like "The Fire Is Mine." But a lot of the songs bleed into one another, there isn't a whole lot of variety.

And if you aren't going to have a lot of variety then you better have million dollar hookish riffage like Battle Beast and Triosphere.

Regarding the vocalist, she is way too operatic, borderline whiny than power. There is ZERO grit in her performance. And you need that given the lyrical themes.

3/5 for me. Not bad, not great, just a boilerplate female led power metal act with some accomplished axemen.

And now I am pissed off because AMG just stole my thunder with Monolithe III review (I knew about it for months and have been watching it).

But now the cat is out of the bag, here we go:



The entire III album will be available on doom-metal.com tomorrow from the their official website! Watch for it.

I'm kinda late to the party but I'm really enjoying BTBAM's The Parallax II. I loved the Hypersleep Dialogues EP but the Parallax II is another level above it.

It's never too late to enjoy good music. Good music is timeless.

For those not familiar with Verdunkeln, I whole heartily suggest you check out their follow up from their amazing 2007 debut.

If you aren't typically a black metal fan, I would REALLY GIVE this a chance - think of it as Burzum meets Gothic rock melodies....take a listen to a track off of Weder Licht Noch Schatten:
