  1. Afterbirth - The Time Traveller's Dilemma Krallice - Go Be Forgotten Krallice - Dimensional Bleedthrough
  2. I'll take a week in the tank, please.
  3. Maybe rent one of these for the weekend?
  4. Sounds like a promising combo, even if it is the middle of summer.
  5. If you post stuff on YouTube you can share it easily on other platforms. I don't really like Facebook and I hate to recommend it, but it's great for making connections. Meeting people face to face is the best, though.
  6. Go to shows and talk to people, record some of your own stuff and put it up online so potential collaborators can hear what you have to offer, join some metal-related FB groups and see if anyone is in your area. And keep practicing so your chops are up if you get a chance to jam with someone.
  7. If you liked that SYL track, you should check out the rest of "City". I'm not a huge fan of everything Devin Townsend has done but that album is his absolute high point IMO.
  8. Howling Sycamore - Seven Pathways To Annihilation ...this one has taken a while to really sink in, but it's a great album. Superficially very similar to the debut, it sticks with the same melodic palette and general riffing/drumming/vocal style, but it's quite a bit more complicated, both in the way the parts are layered and in terms of song structure. Not as immediately catchy, but deeper and maybe more rewarding. Deathspell Omega - The Furnaces Of Palingenesia ...these guys took the opposite route this time. These songs are more streamlined and less chaotic than their other recent albums, I daresay even "accessible" by DSO standards. It pays off -- nothing feels dumbed-down or commercialized here, but the riffs are allowed to breathe and build "organically" into memorable sections. Less of a maelstrom, more of a nicely paced, enjoyable trudge through pervasive gloom. I always have trouble finding a third album for this thread. Don't have one at the moment.
  9. Nevermore afternoon playlist: This Godless Endeavor Enemies Of Reality The Politics Of Ecstasy Dreaming Neon Black
  10. Virus - The Black Flux Enslaved - Below The Lights Enslaved - E
  11. Deathspell Omega - The Furnaces Of Palingenesia Pagan's Mind - Infinity Divine Opeth - My Arms, Your Hearse
  12. Could you clarify this? Lots of metal has clean vocals.
