    Ihsahn's solo work is pretty much Progressive Metal, quite experimental and hints of Emperor-style blackmetal thrown here and there. Thats atleast what the earlier AngL album was.

    High On Fire - Snakes For The Divine. Released 23/2 but we received it at work (I work for a distribution company) like 5 days ago. It's kicking my ass so much it's not even funny. Probably my favorite after Surrounded By Thieves.

    I need to be in a certain mood to listen to bestial metal, on some days I can't stand more than one song hehehe.

    I'm surprised you dig Teitanblood! Seven Chalices is one of those few albums that epitomizes TRUE horror.




    I like the feeling that teitanblood gives me. It teleports me to another reality. Its like I am roaming hell myself and listening to the demons around me. Very scary indeed. [​IMG]

    I also want to add that listening to teitanblood liberates me somehow.

    First time i turn it on I get an uneasy feeling as if i am committing a sin or doing something taboo...

    then I keep listening and i get a little paranoid that there might be some otherworldly presence in my room...

    Then I get into its groove for a while then I turn it off....

    after that, there is some sort of relief that its done while at the same time a craving to do it again remains.

    It is sort of like what one feels after riding a good rollercoaster.

    felt the same way [​IMG] im also in the process of checking out Agalloch, the cd ashes against the grain

    I have listened to Agalloch Pale Folklore and it is a very nice album. Haven't checked other albums from them.

    Then I see a lot of you guys like doom/black metal. At least the last pages have been regarding those "obscure" genres.

    DaveBSC, finding good Technical Death bands is difficult. The first Tech Death I listened to (can't recall the band's name) was boring and I didn't enjoy it. After I found bands as Gorod, The Faceless, Quo Vadis, ... My interest towards them has increased exponentially. Plus it seems there are a lot of French - Canadian (Quebec) bands that play this kind of genre.

    Oh and asmox, thanks a lot for those bands. That is definitely some of the stuff I am a lot into right now. Loving the Humanoid stuff.

    Oh to add more bands you guys should check out, you can try Protest The Hero:
    Y9aJ0ncWRvY

    And also Between The Buried And Me (albums, Alaska; Colors)
    s_bYyal5rDo

    This song's intro is brutal. [​IMG]

    EDIT:Intro and Autro [​IMG] Oh and listen to Limb From Limb By Protest the Hero.

    Both bands are very interesting.

    So i listened to Agalloch, not too shabby, but i think i prefer swallow the sun and paradise lost. And teitanblood didnt do anything for me unfortunately

    And bullseye, im sure many will balk at the protest the hero song, but ive always heard of them but never actually checked them out, i really like that song [​IMG] thanks for putting that link up

    Ahab's call of the wretched sea is also really enjoyable for me whatever genre it is

    Downloaded some songs, and Teitanblood is... different. Nice use of vocal effects though, it has to be listened with speakers for full effect.

    Personally when it comes to atmosphere inducing music I prefer music with more defined, torturing horror atmosphere, like Wormphlegm. Teitanblood is more like demonic chaos all around, hard to follow as a music even if I try to listen it as just deathmetal. On right state of mind it can be quite creepy though, perhaps with the help of some alcohol. [​IMG]

    I'm coming more and more to the conclusion that it is a top notch album.

    Sparing money also to High on Fire "Snakes for the Divine" and Immolation "Majesty and Decay". Both are awesome.

    Any consensus on how Dream Theater's stuff is mastered? The album 'Black Clouds & Silver Linings' sounds great to me. I don't hear any clipping or artifacts.
     
  15. donunus
    Dream theater has pretty good mastering... I have no complaints there
