Tomorrow will be my first time through Gojira's latest. Looking forward to it.


Please let me know what you think of Gojira, it's definitely on my list to pick up on vinyl.

Anticipating the new Cult of Luna release, has me thinking about some of my post metal discs-going to the back of the rack, I'm currently playing something I sort of overlooked at the time, but sounds great on my Grado cans...enjoying details I missed several years ago-Callisto's True Nature Unfolds from 2008-definitely a CUL/Mouth of the Architect vibe-61CIbo%2Ba-yL.jpg

I'm curious what you think of Beak's Eyre?

1000

 

Gave this one a spin this morning and I have to say it's a fantastic album. First time I've been all the way through. 

 

As for fidelity I can't comment yet. New TT, new record, crap amp, and crap cans. Judging how good it sounds it tough since I've never heard it before. Getting some left channel distortion throughout but with everything being unfamiliar I have a feeling it's not the record.

I'm playing with the "tape mod" on my Grado225i cans and enjoying what I percieve as a greater base emphasis on some DOOM and prog faves.

 

Electric Wizzard's Dopethrone

Product Details

 

and, Opeth-Ghost Reveries-OK-now if someone tells me they've never heard of these bands, I'll know your schiiting with me!

I don't think I've head of them....fill me in....

 

Oh, and Callisto from a previous post is your basic tasteful post metal very much in the vein of Isis and cult of Luna. Hardcore vocals, esoteric, sudo spiritual lyrics-I think they're Scandinavian. I noticed Invisible Oranges had a recent post about lost classics or something and referenced the album, "True Nature Unfolds" which I had buried in my CD collection and so I decided to listen to it again. When I bought it, it didn't really grab me in the same way that Isis, Pelican, CUL, Neurosis did, so I thought it deserved a reexamination along with some wine and chill time.

 

Yeah-sounded pretty sweet! But, not as good as the aforementioned bands IMO. NTL, worth a listen if you can stream it or something, for fans of well composed post metal. But, hey, who needs all that "thinking man's" metal scvery_evil_smiley.gifhiiit.

 

Well, me, I guess....on occasion

 

Listening to Dopethrone now....definitely not thinking man's metal. And, I haven't taken it's rather single minded advice in many years.

Wow-very favorable review for sure. I'll have to keep my eyes out for these guys.

 

This makes me admit to being a complete dork-but Wintersun sounds pretty good on HP's. I promise to not post any No Celine Dion or Neil Diamond.

They are finnish. Their second LP Noir is hailed usually as their strongest. It has been recorded amazingly well, they all seem to play together in a bigger room full of vivid echoes. Their records are at points a bit long for my tastes but still very recommended.

So I've asked before, but didnt get too many replies. Im looking for a second can to use at work, most likely with a portable amp. It has to be open so i can hear the phone ring an such. and i dont want to spend more then 3-400 or so. So i was looking at either the HD600s or HE-400s with something like a Fiio E12. Any other ideas? I know last time i was suggested a porta pro, but im looking for something more comfortable for long listening sessions, but also something more refined than that.

 

Thanks for any ideas guys!

I am under the impression that HE-400 are quite heavy and big. It wouldn't probably bother me at home but at work one might find it too clumsy to live with. Just a thought, I might be completely wrong, as the case usually is.

No we haven't discussed Opeth yet in this thread. Who are they?

I'm going to agree with that re:True Nature Unflolds-each song holds up on its own as an inidividual piece of music, but listening straight through, I begin to lose interest the last 1/4 of the CD.

Ha, ha, ha.

 

 

Can someone help me? I just heard a group that sounded pretty good. The name was Led Zeppelin and the song was Stairway, uh, Stairway to the stars...no, no, no-that's not it-does this ring a bell with anyone? Funny....it sounded vaguely familiar. I think they were British. The guitarist was pretty good. Some old guy, I think.
