How is the Gojira? Been thinking of picking that up. Really hasnt been much the last few months as far as bands I really listen to regularly.

Sent from me phone

It's ok, but not nearly as good as their last album.  It's one of those rare albums that after being blown away by on on my first listen, I find myself liking a little less each time I hear it.

I'm not even sure if this qualifies as a 'metal' album, but it is so, so, so good:

Baroness - Yellow & Green

Today is Dimeball Darrell day in my household in honor of the late guitarists birthday today.

Pantera and Damage Plan will be played at length tonight.

I encourage all metalheads to lift a glass of their favorite beverage in his name tonight.

Been putting this off, as the list had gotten pretty damn long after 2 months.  Not much commentary...here goes best to worst:

Grave - Endless Procession of Souls


Nachtmystium - Silencing Machine


Khors - Wisdom of Centuries


Ex Deo - Caligvla


Einsiferum - From Afar (absolutely fantastic) and Unsung Heroes (mediocre)



King of Asgard - ...To North


Becoming the Archetype - I Am


Korpiklanni - Manala


Odium - Burning the Bridges To Nowhere


Sybreed - God is an Automaton


Crocell - The Wretched Eidola


The Levitation Hex - The Levitation Hex


A Forest of Stars - A Shadow Play for Yesterdays


Hellsaw - Trist


And the non-metal albums of the month (both of which were absolutely fantastic):

Dead Can Dance - Anastasis


Ian Anderson - Thick as a Brick II

This thread cracks me up. Through the years I've been listening to many genres. I like a lot of stuff. I've mostly fallen into the dead, phish, Zappa and similar stuff. But my wife thinks I'm still a closet metal lover. I watch "that metal show" usually when noone is around. I always, while flipping through, stop on a concert of something hard rock or metal, and leave it on, much against her requests...my pandoro stations do include system of a down, tool, maybe van halen amongst others in the genre.

So, there it is! Out of the closet!

Damn you to hell Gratch Cool !

I'm slowly but surely compiling my year end rockers and turds and there are a couple I see from your list who will make both of those lists.

Waiting on a couple more releases before I can make my final decision.

October, best to worst.  Tough to rank them though, as they were all pretty damn good this month:

Gallowsbraid - Ashen Eidolon.  A fantastic slice of folk metal, you can listen to the whole thing here.  Mixes very mellow instrumental parts with some fantastic heaver elements.


Undead Creep - The Ever Burning Torch.  Straight-up, old school, Swedish death metal with killer riffs and brutal vocals.  


Wintersun - Time, I.  I'm not enamored with Wintersun as everyone else seems to be, but this one wasn't bad.  Very epic Viking metal, but some of the songwriting falls a bit flat for me.

The Sword - Apocryphon.  Kratz would be proud.  smile  These guys have always been hit or miss with me, but this one is mostly hit.  I still think all their songs start to sound the same after a while, but it's still got a great 70's stoner metal vibe to it.


Carnival In Coal - Collection Prestige.  This bat-shit insane album was best described as "Mr. Bungle by way of Morbid Angel".  It's got Bungle/Dog Fashion Disco/Pin Up Went Down-style bizzareness, but with a much harder edge overall.


Anaal Nakrath - Vanitas.  This got some great reviews, but didn't really wow me much.

One final bit of bad-assery for October comes courtesy of Beastwars.  Their self-titled debut is absolutely riveting.  It's Mastodon meets The Melvins mixed with The Sword by way of Kyuss, with an otherworldly voice leading the charge.  This album is seriously just amazing, you can stream (or buy) the whole thing here.

That new Sword is okay... it doesn't have any outright stinkers like Warp Riders did, but it doesn't have any really great songs either... I agree that the songs are sort of indistinct on it and sitting here right now, I can only think of how one song goes... that's not a good sign.  The first two records are still so, so good though...  I dunno, this might grow on me.  I got the picture disc vinyl, and it certainly *looks* cool.

This Beastwars band actually has some potential... I don't hear Mastodon in there though.  Some Sword, for sure... some Neurosis... with some Sisters of Mercy on top.

Queensryche

has a teaser for their new Geoff Tate-free album:

http://youtu.be/ZNP_jR0McuU

It's not exactly Operation: Mindcrime, but so far it's sounding better than anything they've done in the past decade.  Closest thing to "metal" since The Warning.

Speaking of Tate, Angry Metal Guy absolutely destroyed his latest solo album (a 0.5/5 score).

November was a very good metal month.  Best to worst.  (for some reason, the site is giving me an SQL error when I try to include the cover images.  Will keep trying to include those, as some of them are really good this month)

Aquilus - Griseus:  A very strong contender for album of the year.  It shifts from brutal to absolutely beautiful effortlessly, often within the same stanza.  It's one of those albums that really needs to be listened to in one sitting, as the musical story it weaves is tremendous.  You can stream the whole thing here

Acyl - Algebra:  A fascinating combination of middle-eastern tinged tribal with technical death metal.  Probably not everyone's thing, but I thought it was fantastic.

Aeternam - Moongod:  Incredibly epic symphonic melodeth with Sumerian themes.  It's what Nile wishes their last album could have been.

Death - Spiritual Healing (remastered):  Rounding out my Death collection.  Not as strong as Human, but still very solid.

Aeon - Aeons Black:  Black metal in the vein of Behemoth.  Really brutal stuff.

Crypticus - Insieme Verso Terrore EP:  Straight-up death metal that is a little more riffy than most.  Good stuff...album streams here

Waylander - Kindred Spirits:  Very solid folk metal.

Adorned Brood - Kuningaz:  Another folksy metal jaunt.  Lots of fun.

Tiamat - The Scarred People.  Trying really hard to be Sisters of Mercy.  Works on a few tunes, but overall it got kinda boring.

Kamelot - Silverthorn.  A couple good songs with a whole bunch of boring filler.  Then again, power metal really isn't my thing so ymmv.

December was a really light month, grabbing a grand total of two metal albums.  Thankfully, they were both very good:

Oak Pantheon - From A Whisper.  I was blown away by OP's debut album, and they have followed it up with a fantastic sophomore effort.  Atmospheric, dark, dreamy, and powerful..  You can stream the whole thing here.


Stolen Babies - Naught.  I'll be seeing these guys open up for Turisas next month, figured I should know what I'm in for.  Crazy avant-garde metal in the Dog Fashion Disco/Sleepytime Gorilla Museum/Mr. Bungle vein.


Also picked up a Christmas/Winter themed album of symphonic atmospheric tunes from Nox Arcana called Winter's Majesty.  It's not metal, per se, but certainly has some gothic/metal elements that add to the overall epic feel.

Because I'm sure everyone is just dying to know, here's my personal Top 10 (mostly metal) albums for 2012:

10.  Pallbearer - Sorrow & Extinction:  A wonderful slice of doom metal that hearkens back to Black Sabbath's glory days. 
9.   Dead Can Dance - Anastasis:  Simply a beautiful album from start to finish.  While Lisa's songs aren't quite as strong, Brendan Perry's voice is absolutely mesmerizing.
8.  Beastwars - Beastwars:  Sludge-y, doom-y, stoner-y with a ton of hooks.  Maybe it's just me, but I'm fascinated by Matt Hyde's raw, powerful delivery.
7.  Aeternam - Moongod:  Epic melodic death metal done damn near to perfection.  The Sumerian themes were unique, but didn't take focus away from the strong songwriting and fantastic orchestration.
6.  Nachtmystium - Silencing Machine:  A howling storm of bleak chaos that is barely held in check.  Most of the songs feel like they could explode into madness any moment, but the shrieking vocals hold everything together beautifully.
5.  Grave - Endless Procession of Souls:  Straight up death metal without a single punch pulled.  This shit will tear your face off then come back for seconds.
4.  Woods of Ypres - Woods V:  Grey Skies & Electric Light:  It's tough to separate this album from the tragedy around it's release (lead singer David Gold was killed shortly after release), but when you know the sad circumstances, Woods V becomes an incredibly eerie listen.  I never thought much of Woods of Ypres, but they went out on an absolute high note with probably the most powerful album I heard this year.
3.  Celldweller - Wish Upon a Blackstar:  Let's face it, Klayton has an incredible gift for writing a damn catchy tune.  I've probably listened to WUaB more than anything else this year, just because there are so many memorable hooks.  It's not metal by any stretch, but has an energy and furious-ness that most bands simply lack.
2.  Aquilus - Griseus:  This one-man project came out of nowhere and completely blew me away.  It's technically classified as atmospheric metal, I suppose, but is honestly like nothing I've ever heard.  Sweeping orchestrations give way to brutal blastbeats, quiet near-lullabies suddenly explode into shrieks of anguish...this honestly has to be heard to be believed (which you can do for free here).  This won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it's a stunning example of creativity, passion, and talent.
1.  Sigh - In Somnium:  Nothing came close, really.  This album is brilliant insanity.  It's the soundtrack for a nightmare.  It's what Satan spins when he wants to get laid.  It throws every single musical genre into a blender and spits out something that no one can even begin to duplicate. 

Honorable Mention:  Agalloch - Faustian Echoes EP, Aeon - Aeons Black, Ne Obliviscarus - The Portal of I, Winterfylleth - Threnody of Triumph, Rumpelstiltskin Grinder - Ghostmaker, Vintersorg - Orkan, Oak Pantheon - From A Whisper, Nami - Fragile Ailments, Acyl - Algebra

It's a pretty niche group of bands, but a few of them (Dead Can Dance, Grave, Sigh) have been recording for 20+ years.  Celldweller (15), Nachtmystium (12), Agalloch (15), Aeon (12), and Woods of Ypres (10) have been around for a while as well.

Doubt I'll get the chance to pick up anything else this week, so here's January.

Woods of Ypres - Woods 5:  Grey Skies and Electric Light.  Tough one to judge on it's own merits given the tragedy that surrounded it.  Even without singer David Gold's death, this is still an incredibly powerful, depressing, haunting piece of work.  Very reminiscent of Type O (in all the best ways), both in musical style and lyrical content.


Saturnus - Saturn in Ascension.  If you're in the mood for something absolutely soul-crushing, play Woods 5 then Saturnus back-to-back.  A fantastically heavy, sludgy, beautiful piece of doom metal.


Voivod - Target Earth.  I've actually never been a big Voivod fan, but had seen some good reviews on this one.  Is got their trademark weirdness, but the songs are actually catchy this time around instead of just...grating.


Niburta - Screams from the East.  Folksy metal that is sung in both English and Macedonian.  3-4 really damn good songs, but the rest of the album falls somewhat flat.  Definitely unique though, combining folk, funk, jazz, and black metal.  Great cover art too.


Mechina - Empyrean.  A spacey, metal version of 2001:  A Space Odyssey.  I was absolutely gaga over their first album, but this one falls short mainly due to some rather shoddy production values.  Tough to fault them though, since they don't have a label and are doing it all themselves.  The songwriting is pretty solid (these dudes obviously have some chops), I just can't help but feel like the album just never really comes together like it should.


Incantation - Vanquish in Vengeance.  Pretty generic death metal.  Gave it a couple spins and couldn't get very excited about it.


Combichrist - No Redemption.  This is apparently the soundtrack to DMC.  I'm typically a sucker for industrial metal, but this just isn't very good.

Some really good stuff in February.

Suffocation - Pinnacle of Bedlam.  Nice to see the old guard come back and show the new school how it's done.  Straight up death metal that kicks ass.


Blue Stahli - Blue Stahli.  One of Celldweller's collaborators...scratches my industrial itch.  Ministry and NIN fans will like it.


Amiensus - Restoration.  Atmospheric black metal in the Agalloch vein.  Mellow and powerful is a potent mixture.


Devourement- Conceived in Sewage.  Silly album name notwithstanding, this is a great death metal trip


Septicflesh - Mystic Places of Dawn.  It's odd, I seem to like every Septic Flesh album a little less than the previous one I purchased.  Just kinda 'meh' all around.


Non metal purchases this month were:

Bad Religion - True North.  I've had a soft spot for BR since the early 80's.  It's amazing to see them kick out such a stellar album after 30+ years.


Daft Punk - Tron Legacy Soundtrack.  Watched Tron Legacy on a plane and thought "you know, this music is really damn good".  Odd, because I typically can't stand Daft Punk.
