  1. I do really like this one. Especially as most "super groups" just churn out trite I was pretty knocked off my feet. One thing I can't figure out is who plays bass on the album. Kinda bugs me that it isn't listed. Blasphemer is credited with "Guitars" so maybe bass is being included under that umbrella.
  2. It'd have to be one hell of a disguise tho. Now that I've been Beetlejuiced back to the forum I guess I'll do a quick life update thingy. -I've finished my bachelors and am now doing my honours degree. -I've started working casually at the uni as a lab demonstrator (like a science teacher that only does experiments) -I did wind up joining that local band I was trying out for as lead guitar. My brother also manged to land the role of drummer. -I'm in a new relationship with someone arguably more metal than me (although she's not allowed to know that I think that could be remotely possible). Sorry for disappearing, I just kinda fell outta the habit of posting as I got more busy. I'll have to poke around again later, peoples sad projects need someone to tell them why they suck.
  3. Inertia: Bubonic Black Sabbath: The Wizard Archspire: The Mimic Well Illuminati: The Core Timeghoul: The Siege Black Sabbath: Iron Man Cryogenecide: Sickening Solar Mutations Evulse: Hideous Mind The Men's Toilet: Aftermath of Pustulate Disfigurement Inertia: Monkey's Paw
  4. It was a joke. Admittedly, not a great one.
  5. Thanks. I tend to buy more Australian stuff as that's the stuff I'm more likely to see, my list will probably become a little more balanced when I have more 2018 stuff as I currently only have around 20 releases from last year. Cancelled at the Tote as a couple of regulars were upset. https://killyourstereo.com/news/1088219/whoretopsy-have-gig-cancelled-because-of-their-lyrical-content/ Cancelled at Geelong (by the FUCKING COUNCIL no less) seemingly just to follow suit. https://www.facebook.com/Wtopsy/posts/announcement-we-have-been-banned-from-our-upcoming-show-this-friday-in-geelong-a/2021296184589196/ From what I gather their name might offend or annoy some of the "SJWs". To be fair, I think they had it first. You should give them a cut of the money you rake in posting here.
  6. 7.5/10 Liked the bass and some of the riffs were really cool but the solo section come of pretty cheesy.
  7. David. I like his playing style more, he's on more good albums, I greatly prefer Megadeth. Glen Benton or a Hoffman brother.
  8. I haven't listened to enough stuff but I'll have a go. Some of these opinions are pretty biased. 10 Snakes Pure Evil A fun and memorable groove act. Full of character not nearly as try-hard as most of the other entries on this list. Really catchy with some interesting songwriting ideas and structures thrown around. 9 Rivers Of Nihil Where Owls Know My Name Stands out among a lot of progressive death metal due to riff ideas and dynamics that often seem to remind me more of indy rock than any of the styles that progressive DM often borrow from. 8 Psycroptic As The Kingdom Drowns Some interesting twisted riffing ideas that are somehow simultaneously instantly catchy. Higher energy with more jerky and exiting song structures than their last release. 7 Inertia Tetroma It's rare for me to like a djent album so these guys were working against a pretty hefty handicap. Techy and occasionally sour this album has some ridiculous noody riffs and sounds that endeared it to me on first listening. Uapologetically jazzy for significant chunks. 6 Requiem And The Earth Grew Dark An Ararat (Victoria, Australia) band who have gotten exponentially better with each release their third album. Effortlessly combines the agression of high-speed death-thrash band metal with the some of the darkness of a blackmetal release. Clearly taking some inspiration from Aussie blackened prog metallers Hybrid Nightmares (alongside whom they performed in 2017) in this release the riffing and solos reach a new high while also showing enough restraint to let the vocals cement themselves in the listener's mind. As much as en enjoyed this album, I can't help but wonder how much better the next album is going to be. 5 Aborted TerrorVision Experimenting with more interesting time signatures and song segments than any other release of theirs I've heard, Aborted add tech to the list of death metal sub genres in which they flirt with without entirely surrendering to. 4 Whoretopsy Take My Breath Away Checking these guys out after hearing about their unfortunate censorship at a couple of venues (Cannibal Corpse effect in full swing, take THAT society!) I was amazed to hear how characterful a slam band could be. With an array of interesting riffs with an odd sense of melody and groove and song structures that evolve seamlessly; slams are used somewhat sparingly and to great effect, often emphasizing a critical point in one of the album's disgustingly beautiful stories. 3 Golgothan Remains Perverse Offerings to the Void Australian dissonant DM with high impact moments scattered throughout sour landscapes of sound. Ugly howling vocals and a warm, modest (but not forcibly so) production add to the album's charm. 2 Serocs The Phobos/Demos Suite Dissonant, aggressive, melodic, brutal. This murky album varies from bleeding arpeggios to high impact churning groove riffing to aggressive patches that rip your face off while keeping a sense of sophistication throughout the experience. 1 Hadal Maw Charlatan Was there ever a contest? With some almost linear song structures that pull you spiraling into a murky void and a rougher production, this EP is considerably less listener friendly than either of their previous efforts but somehow even more characterful and memorable.
  9. Check out the range at http://shop.metaldevastation.com/Gauntlets_c337.htm Or buy cheap bracers or gauntlets and cheap bag of like 100 spikes on eBay and do it yourself.
  10. JAZZ III MASTER RACE. I tend more towards the regular jazz IIIs than the XL ones though, especially for tremolo picking or sting jumping stuff.
  11. I've thought about doing something like this as a short project. Mainly to get into local Rackabilly shows on a technicality and upset the audience. Nice execution. First bandcamp supporter.
  12. Boring people can't tell the difference.
  13. Atheist and Illuminati are two that come to mind.
  14. Never really thought of myself as a slam guy. Looking forward to seeing these guys at blaze festival.
