Well that was definitely not Lady Gaga.

Would have been great if it didnt have those king diamond-esque vocals in the middle.

I guess I'm just too old to appreciate this shiat.

Hey, I was just listening to Oracles earlier today!

Then again I think it's the first time in two weeks I've listened to something other than Parallax II.

Easily one of the most overrated bands in the modern death metal scene. OH WE HAVE A PIANO! THAT MEANS WE CAN MAKE BORING ASS RIFFS!

Inspired by their newest record, I've been on a My Dying Bride kick this last week. Also discovered my frontrunner for album of the year last weekend. Old School Metal Supremacy.

I heard good things recently -

Arkham Witch - Legions of the Deep (old school)
Arkham Witch - Dagon's Bell (older, maybe even better school)

Hooded Priest - 8 'O Clock Witch (blackened doom - clean vocals)

Goat Vengeance (Brazilian black metal)

Goat Ritual - Forbidden Tales (black metal from Bosnia)

Aanal Beehemoth - Form of Satan (what is this I don't even)

Baphometh - Massive Annihilation (instrumental death/thrash, from Venezuela)

Nordor - Salvation from the Stench (Greek death metal)

As much as I love classical or orchestral instruments in my metal, this is kinda coming off as gimmicky. It's not terrible, but it could be better

As for me, I've been grooving on Ouroboros again recently; their debut album was one of my favorites of last year.

Ouroboros - Sanctuary

Also picked up the newest album from Al-Namrood. Middle Eastern black metal with a pagan, anti-religious bent? I was intrigued to say the least. It's pretty badass.

Al-Namrood - Hayat Al-Khlood

Then there's the music from Brendon Small's Galaktikon his first solo album released this year. It's quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

Brendon Small - Prophecy of the Lazer Witch

Good to hear the new MDB is good. I love MDB but not all they do. I need to pick it up.

I don't mind saying, I thought that was f*cking great. I'm a sucker for that kind of technical blast beat sound, kind of reminds me of Septicflesh a bit.

The new Anaal Nathrakh album came out a couple weeks ago, and it's excellent, of course, if you're a fan. The song  "Of Fire, and F*cking Pigs" is one of my favorite new things.

So we're complaining about clean vocals now? SHMHC has gone full circle retard.

Fleshgod Apocalypse is good. Septicflesh is better.

Some instrumental recs:

New Behold... The Arctopus
Omega Massif

Wow, great stuff! Saudi, FFS!

Two things that went through my head while I was listening to this.

1) This is really good. I want to hear more.

2) Saudi Arabia. The Mutaween don't fark around - these guys could get prison time or worse for this. They are more metal than I could ever claim to be

Most Saudi metal bands have connections to the royal family or high-up political dudes. They have the connections usually to get away with this stuff.

The whole album Kitab Al Awthan is posted on Youtube, but that one song was all the convincing I needed to buy the album. I'm glad I did. It's right up there with Tengger Cavalry among my favorites in black metal.

I have no idea if that's true or not, but Al-Namrood kicks ass anyway. And hell, their name does roughly translate to 'Heretic' and I'm pretty sure their lyrics are very anti-religious. Still risky stuff to put to song in a Muslim state.

If you're going with Fleshgod, I personally would have gone with either Embodied Deception or In Honour of Reason. Two of my favorite tracks. Saw them about a year ago on tour with Decapitated and Decrepit Birth. Easily one of the best concerts I've ever been to. Decapitated destroyed it. I got to meet Bill Robinson after the show too. Super nice guy.

Septicflesh are FANTASTIC. Sumerian Daemons and The Great Mass are amazing albums.

And I haven't really been keeping tabs on whether or not they're one of those bands that Fark either loves or hates, but I've been getting really into Nile these past few weeks - Those Whom the Gods Detest

Sounds like assholes shooting off automatic weapons during a cut-rate Wagner opera performance.

Dude I love that Trappazat. LOVE IT. Sounds like they could have opened for maiden back in the day.

That may apply to some bands but based on thiis interview it looks like they are legitimately concerned with the possibility of being found out.

Not really into Fleshgod Apocalypse, but that's not really why I visit this thread anyways. Good recs in here as usual, with HighZoolander bringing the usual awesome. I do miss LOC's recs though.

Nothing really from me. I just discovered Portal and have been listening to a lot of Drudkh and Burzum while playing Skyrim.

Anybody have a favorite album this year yet? Anything you're looking forward to next year? Haven't picked a favorite album yet, but I'm looking forward to new Manilla Road and Pagan Altar next year.

When it comes to orchestral metal I've been listening to a ton of the newest Carach Angren lately. It's a concept album about WWII, ptsd, and the ghosts of war. Pretty sick. Couldn't pick a favorite song, most of the album is great. The Funerary Dirge of a Violinist.

/this song has some of the weaker lyrics, but is still pretty great and a good taste of what the album offers.
 
2012-11-13 12:34:36 AM
Is there any evidence of Al-Namrood are actually from Saudi Arabia? Didn't that female Iraqi black metal band turn out to be a hoax to sell albums?
