  1. Deafheaven - New Bermuda My favourite from last year. Blows Sunbather out of the water, imo.
  2. I do feel a great sense of shame that it's taken me so long to return! Glad to see the place is still running. Do most of the regular 'crew' still post in here? Best of luck with the move! Are you looking forward to it, or is it a bit of a mixed feeling? I moved out for the first time at the end of the last year, and it took a lot of getting used to!
  3. Just finishing: Pixies - Doolittle About to start: Weezer - Pinkerton Was worried this thread was getting a bit too credible in my absence.
  4. Cheers, Natassja7. How's the forum doing these days?
  5. Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible Not metal, but definitely a dark, intense, aggressive record and clearly a modern classic of popular music.
  6. Well, after over a year's absence due to the site being down on-and-off and the craziness that was my first year at university, I finally decided to pop back here again. How you all doin'?
  7. Yeah, Pecan Tree is definitely a stand-out. I love the final movement/build up that starts half way through the track. One of the moments that remind me most of GYBE!, which is defo not a bad thing. I think it's mostly the vocals I'm still on the fence about; at first they seemed pretty flimsy and one-dimensional, but I'm growing to like them more as I get more to grips with the music. Oddly enough, the record sorta remind me of Deftones at times, with the overall vibe/mood they seem to be going for. Intriguing album I'll defo be returning to. Would recommend you listen again as it seems quite the grower. NP: Fugazi - Repeater
  8. I thought this thread was sorely lacking some petulant asshole enquiring as to why there isn't a thread titled 'most talented men in metal'. But fear not; here I am.
  9. Deafheaven - Sunbather About my 7th listen through and I keep flitting between like, dislike and indifference; not always at the same parts of the album, either. Not sure what to make of this one yet, but I guess I would've already given up on it if I hated it. I'd be interested to know people here's thoughts on the record, if you've listened to it?

    That's pretty high on my to-read list. Cheers for the reminder! ^.^
  11. It would if he listened to each album we mentioned. Just sayin'...
  12. I'd be totally up for that, under the condition that BAN has to comment on each post.
  13. Had a pretty non-metal day today. The last few have been: Mogwai - The Hawk is Howling mewithoutYou - Brother, Sister The National - Trouble Will Find Me Now: Brand New - The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me Pretty sure this is some of the best pop-infused rock music I've heard.
  14. Alrighty, then! I also often have a few drinks at gigs, but I think I need to keep my senses as sharp as possible for this one. Gonna be immense!
