  1. Ulcerate - Stare Into Death And Be Still Deathspell Omega - Chaining The Katechon
  2. Yeah, they stopped in the mid 90s, some of them moved away, life, etc. Our old moderator BlutAusNerd became friends with their guitarist on another forum and put me in touch with him years ago, and I've been following them since then. Another album that fits the bill for me is Soundgarden's "King Animal". It's basically dad rock and it doesn't have the raw energy of their 90s stuff, but there are some awesome songs and beautiful moments on there. I go back to it a lot. Chris Cornell is sorely missed.
  3. Cruciamentum - Charnel Passages Desultory - Into Eternity
  4. Hail Spirit Noir - Pneuma Ad Nauseam - "Imperative Imperceptible Impulse", a promo track from their upcoming album. They made waves in the dissonant Ulcerate/DSO/Gorguts camp a few years ago with their debut album, and this track sees them upping their game. Been looking forward to this for a while.
  5. Arise is fantastic, my favorite from Sepultura and one of my two favorite thrash albums overall.
  6. Man, I used to love "MCMXC AD", haven't listened to Enigma in such a long time. I wonder if I still have the CD somewhere.
  7. Welcome to the forum. Pretty slow here these days but there's something nice about that. Good luck with your pursuit of guitar, hope you enjoy the place.
  8. Nice, glad you liked it. The debut is called "The Time Traveller's Dilemma" and the one that came out last year (also great) is "Four Dimensional Flesh". You might like their vocalist's other band Artificial Brain, too.
  9. My experience of testing here in the northeastern USA has been crappy. The free testing locations are always full - which means that some people are getting tested, which is great, but it seems impossible to get an appointment - and even if you have insurance, the paid locations make you pay out of pocket unless you get a referral from your doctor. So unless you have symptoms or you know for certain that you've been exposed, you can either pay anywhere from $80-$180 depending on the location, or you can suck it and wait. Despite all of our precautions, my wife and son and I got COVID shor
  10. I thought the Afterbirth album was awesome, yeah, they turned into a more interesting band over the years. Lots of brutal DM but also some cool melodic sections and sci fi atmosphere.
  11. Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger Rush - Hemispheres
  12. Afterbirth was part of the beginnings of the brutal DM scene on Long Island in the early 90s, but they broke up for a long time and it took them over 20 years to finally get back together and record their debut. Gorguts also comes to mind with their breakup and 12 year gap between From Wisdom To Hate and the amazing Colored Sands.
  13. Welcome to the forum, hope you find some new stuff to enjoy and have fun building your guitar skills.
  14. Wow, RIP Alexi Laiho of Children Of Bodom. Dead at 41, that's just too fucking young.
  15. Voidceremony - Entropic Dimensions Continuuhbmdbcmhasdhmcdhvhdg: Vkjsrbvnbjwyegfw Cgvsekfjb ...thankfully the album title is the only thing that's too long here. This one grows on me a little more with each listen. Jute Gyte - Birefringence ...I don't think I'm feeling quite masochistic enough for this right now, but, cool
  16. Enslaved - Utgard Abigor - Totschläger That's it. I've heard a bunch of other stuff I also liked a lot, including a couple that I did artwork for, but nothing has captivated me like these two. Fave new non-metal album bonus goes to Tigran Hamasyan's "The Call Within". Edit - I guess you can put the latest Ulcerate on here too, I do find myself going back to that a lot lately.
  17. Abigor - Totschläger Amorphis - The Karelian Isthmus
  18. Ivar Bjørnson & Einar Selvik - Hugsjá
  19. I've gotta remove your link. The place to post this is the "Looking For A Band" section, and if you want to share more of your own stuff, start a thread in "Promote Yourself". Feel free to start your own thread in this intro section as well, but we don't allow promotion here.
  20. What prompted the Ulver discography dive? Great stuff in there... I'd be interested to hear what you think of Marriage Of Heaven And Hell in particular, I don't think I've ever heard another album quite like it. NP: Wormed - Exodromos
  21. Welcome to the forum, you may want to start a thread here and see if anybody reaches out. Good luck.
