Im not going to say it was excellent but compared to the complete utter garbage that was posted last week, it was like listening to a choir of angels.

I absolutely love black metal but for whatever reason death metal just doesn't do it for me (with the exception of Behemoth).
This week I've been enjoying the new Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult so thank you to whoever mentioned it last week.

New Annorkoth (atmospheric black metal) - Link
Gallowbraid (posted before but can't stop listening to it) - Link

Haven't really had a lot of time to discover new music this week because I've been negotiating a physical release for a split I just recorded. I'll let you guys know when it comes out. I've been looking for the new Godseed but haven't had any luck so far.

HighZoolander: good things to enjoy -

Mother of God - The Forest (fans of Graveyard will dig this)
Spacegoat - Without Ceremony (rock/doom)
Spacegoat - Cosmica
Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats - Wicked Annabella (stoner)

Avzhia - Supreme Emperor (symphonic black)
Revocation - Teratogenesis (technical death/thrash)
Morta Skuld - Devoured Fears (actual old school death)
Warstrike 666 - Demonic Warfare (war)

Agrath - The Fall of Mankind (raw black)
Manegarm - Hemfard (viking/folk)


The spacegoat stuff wasn't bad, gave me a sort of Black Sabbath vibe.

Theres good tones with some of these metal bands instruments, but as soon as the singers come in with non stop growling, it really becomes a joke.

Though, I must say his hostile response to my Cookie Monster reference surprised me.

In order for it to fall to full YouTube level standards, I believe we would have to start blaming things on the Jews, or referring to black people as monkeys.

The hostile response is because your Cookie Monster comment wasn't nearly as clever as you think it was (yes, even if you don't think it was clever at all, it's still less clever than that). That shiat was played out 20 years ago.

Also, may I introduce you to a gentleman named Varg Vikernes?

Oh, C'mon dude, I know who Varg is. He should still be in jail. Dude is a sociopath. And i'm not saying that merely because he is a murderer. I'm saying that because his blog is completely narcissistic. Also his description of the events leading up to he murder are extremely selective.

As for the Cookie Monster thing being old and played out. Duh! However, if vocalists like the dude from Necros Christos continur to sound exactly like generic Cookie Monster, then there is no reason that simile can't be used.

There's also a range in between that's not clean like say Rob Halford, or Bruce Dickenson, but aren't your stereo typical cookie monster shiat. I tend to just call them aggressive vocals, where there's either a balance of cookie monster and clean or that range in the middle. Bands like Slayer, Soulfly, or something more recent Straight Line Stich who I think does a nice balance switching between aggressive and clean vocals, although I'm sure some would say they sometimes sound a bit too mainstream or "nu-metal"ish. I'm sure people will say the same of Otep, that seems to strike a decent balance. Gojira sometimes straddles the line between aggressive and too cookie monsterish for my tastes, but they aren't bad. The point was, there's more to metal than cookie monster, and there's more to metal than clean. The folks that have the restrictive "it's cookie monster or nothing" tastes can have them. I'll take some variety to my metal, just easy on the cookie monster stuff.

I don't think I've ever seen/met anyone who would only listen to harsh vocals - every single person (that I remember at least) that likes harsh vocals also enjoys many bands with clean vocals.

I have heard from tons of people who won't listen to anything with harsh vocals though.

Maybe we've met different people. Personally, my preferences have a lot more to do with the music than the vocals though - as long as everything sounds good together I don't care what style a particular instrument/voice is played in.

Eh, I've met/talked to a number of people that will listen to stuff without harsh/guttural vocals but they don't consider it metal unless it has harsh vocals, they'll just call it some variation of rock. Typically my preferences start with the music, but for me the harsh vocals jar me out of the music, especially if I need to look at a lyric sheet to figure out what's being sung. Harsh vocals are one thing, I can deal with a certain degree of harshness, but after that it messes with my enjoyment of the song.

Anyone who would consider Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Candlemass, Mercyful Fate/King Diamond, Slayer, etc. as some kind of rock and not really metal is clearly insane.

For me, I can't think of a song where I've been able to understand all of the lyrics without a lyric sheet, no matter how clean (well, maybe a couple, but lyrics are frequently confused, even in pop music) - and I think with harsh vocals in particular the actual words in the lyrics are less important than the vocal pattern and how the voice sounds (as if it were an instrument).

Harsh vocals can take some getting used to, and maybe a certain different approach to listening to the music, and I'm not saying that anyone has to like them, but I am still surprised by how many metal fans don't enjoy them.

I had to look-up Dethclock to see who it was. Good catch Vash, i'm having some serious chortles over here right now as i realize it's that band from that funny as shiat metalacolypse (sp) show.

That said, i listened to Fan Song and the music is actualy pretty damn good, but once again i goes from a B+ to a D for dud in about 3 miliseconds when the singer starts the mindless chanting growl shiate. The greater metal genre needs better vocalists - actual singers; less growling; less opera, more singing. I mean a growl here and there could be badass when used properly with the music, but non-stop? I've already seen the Exorcist several times, and remember what it sounds like.

It's too bad, that we have to wade through a sea of shiat to find an occasional metal band/record/song that is actually good; i really like the energy of the music itself.

Sorry, neither this, this, nor even this would ever be improved by tamer vocals.

And what do you mean "too bad?" That's ALL of music. You gotta work to find the good stuff you like.

EdNortonsTwin: The greater metal genre needs better vocalists - actual singers; less growling; less opera, more singing.


Your argument really fell apart when you suggested that opera singers aren't actual singers.

Just accept that there are lots of different vocal styles in metal, and even if you don't like all of them, there is still plenty to enjoy with they styles that you do like. Sure, you might have to work a little harder to find the less popular exemplars, but you listen to metal - you already like something that's basically never going to achieve mainstream popularity. Embrace the fact that the clean vocals /traditional metal styles that you like are pretty much underground these days.
