I'll be sure to revisit Gojira in the forseeable future again I say "revisit" because I've listened to them already in the past and should give them a go again soon
But right now, here's what I'm enjoying:
Heavy and monolithic with a bit of prog influence that can be considered in the same vein as Mastodon, Isis & Cult of Luna (at least imho)
The Ocean - Precambrian (2007)
This is pretty kickass...
Nokturnal Mortum - Lunar Poetry
the mid-late 90's were awesome. i believe this is from 1996
There have been some great releases of late. Been listening to
Drudkh - Microcosm
Their frosty, raw, folkish Black Metal is amazing.
Blut Aus Nord - Memoria Vetusta II: Dialogue with the Stars
My opinion of BAN was still unformed but this seals it: they rock. This is epic BM.
Wolves in the Throne Room - Black Cascade
Best BM coming from the US nowadays. Nature's haunting, relentless, drone BM.
Alongside with Deathspell Omega this bands are the best Black Metal, IMHO.
Wolves in the Throne Room have finally won me over with latest album shown, I initially though they were just a Burzum clone but now have changed my mind find them strong advocates for current modern dark metal genre.
Classic debut album released as special 2 CD version: original album with 1 bonus track + 2008 live remake of album.
Deluxe package 4 panel double digipak, have placed my order......... \m/
Anyone have the new album "skyforger"?
I like previous album "silent waters" but samples from new work sound softer tone overall...........
