another chicago titan.ive only listened to the two prereleased tunes. and i gotta say...fucking gut punch...in a good way. rippimng, artful, calculating, techtonic. this album is gonna be huge. i cant wait.
sleestak: a band and musical effort based on an obscure tv show. its crushing. poetic, nerdtastic. i love sleestak and everything matt does. in a better world sleestak would be like wild stallions from bill & teds
like dante, mouth of the architect take you on a journey. an exploration. going deeper and deeper down the path of life and death and everything beyond. stunning, absolutely stunning! i love the direction this band is taking.
only half way through listening to this debut and its already album of the year. sludgy, raw, riffalicious, almost tribal in its groove. chicago, there must be a portal that leads to a swampy universe of groovy ass malformed aliens.
FFO the sword and dawnbringer. This shit is all up in my ears. Groovy, summer, space cruising rawk. Spacey and catchy as hell. Not too jammy or corny, just kick ass fun. Diggin the different vocals. Can't wait for part II
these cats are from alaska were its minus 40 all year long and polar bears are the number one cause of death. they eat raw meat to survive.tell these boys its the apocalypse and they take it as good news
i'm a working class lad. work boots, concrete dust, calloused hands. these riffs flow through my blood. its the sound of my soul and im grateful to beastwars for bringing that sound to life. love the album love the music....and holy shit mr. keller, fantastic art!
Hear that?? thats the sound of my neck breaking as i smash my head to this incredible music. heavy, gritty, raw and, sludgy!! song titles read like edgar allen poe story titles (except maybe i fucked a witch, but you know he wanted to write a story like that) cant stop listening to this. wicked art on this album as well. love it!!
New release from TDWA. The first track strikes me as chipper. like optimistic djent. its like sunshine beer drinkin tunage. great way to bring on spring. but dont worry there is plenty of face-fucking heaviness that follows. killer albums boys!!
dark and heavy. was introduced to these guys by heavy blog is heavy. best site going for new and relevant metal. Vipassi is post-metal instrumental. im a lyrics guy at heart, but these guys say everything without even opening their mouths. great debut. (at least i think its their debut)
i lived inside a spaceslug like jonah. only instead of being written into the bible, my story was smeared on a napkin HP Lovecraft used while he ate a hotdog. so, theres that. some riffage in this reminds me of Sleestak. and i love that.
why do i love this album? it's not an album, its a dumptruck full off riffage and post-metal meanderings. i had to call in sick for the rest of the week just to listen to this once through. thanks for this. this is how music should reach ears...in a sweet huge ass compilation.
racing, feet pounding, clawing at the earth. trees surrounded. the sound, all over, feel it coming closer breathing heavy, growling gasping succumbing to the forest. laying watching the treetops sway as i slowly bleed out. you gotta be careful when wandering in these neck of the woods.
hmmmm, very nice.....getting some post-metal on the nose....initial taste i think cult of luna right away, but it mellows with some atmospheric spacey stuff...finishes strong with a layered flavour of face fucking punches....then leaves you with a lullaby
when the prog hits, it hits hard. holy shit animations! where to start describing this music. its fast, its sensual, its heavy, its eloquent, its groovy, its mean, its in my head like an earwig laying eggs.
after trodding through a blurry day, i looked to the calender and saw it was snail wednesday, but then my heart started pounding and eyes grew wide cause tomorrow was my favorite day. the best day to be had...snake thursday!! bring on the riffs motherfuckers!
got my carabiner, my grappling hook, got my nylon rope and headlamp. but will it be enough. enough to face the soul-smashing, face-crashing, lung bashing brutality that is CAVERN? excellent layered post-sludgy-metal-proggy-space-noise.
mozaic is apptly named. i feel like im eating a huge cross section of the world as i listen to this insanely gorgeous mix of sound. every listen garners something special and delightful and monstrous. wicked ass shit my friends!
heavy blog is heavy has this feature: if you like, then you might like... isis was their starting point, lead me to the matadors. austraila and new zealand....holy shit are you guys producing some killer bands. the matadors; i already have their song lyrics tattooed on my chest
this is the music ive been waiting for. granted im a biased aaron turner fanboy, however, sumac is everything. i love isis of course, changed the way i listen to music. but, like the artists, the listeners grow as well. and sumac is the next stage in post-sludgy-whatever and it fuckin mauls and maims
the new double release from OMG is an event, like mt. vesuvius erupting, like the Chelyabinsk meteor, or Godzilla visiting tolkyo. itll be talked about and studied for years to come. universities will offer doctorate courses on it. listen to it. if you can handle it.
this release was a pleasant surprise. groovy, heavy, eloquent yet fierce. they need to tour, come to the west coast boyz!! after first listen I might say a bit more heady than their initial release, and I gotta say im fuckin digging it
crawling, scratching, inching toward the nothing. screams layered with pain surround me. I reach ever reaching toward the impossible sound of salvation. one more limping step. the sound...where is it coming from. then the gates open and the music lifts me like wings. I have finally found the city of the lost
finally some kick ass, gravelspittin, face fuckin, knucklebustin sludge to satisfy this void. raw and dirty, yet eloquent and precise. the duel harsh vocals are killer. the progression and tempo are groovy yet haunting. fuckin great effort guys!!
the enuma elis is an ancient poem, perhaps the oldest piece of literature, that has inspired and influenced many philosophies and religions. this slab of heavy, psychedelia does the name justice and brings forth ancient fire and crushing power. tiamat would bang her head to be sure.
like their previous effort, terraformer take a concept and display everything metal and gnarly about it. the sea shaper had literal references to Melville and Lovecraft. this album does much the same except now we're lost in time, midst the creatures of legend, mere fodder for the beast. enjoy \m/
