Recommended Posts

Ah right' date=' A [i']the in front of tits would have defined that, and there are many things greater then tits, only men just get all silly and googly eyed over them.
Even if you aren't a personal fan of them, you cannot deny their majesty and power.

Taake - Nekro Bathory - Under The Sign Of The Black Mark Lifelover - Dekadens
Taake is already confirmed for Maryland Death Fest 2014, this year will be the year that I make the pilgrimage. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

Jute Gyte "Vast Chains"
That album is really good. I'm finding it to be doomier in a way, and (I kind of think this is the wrong word) more "accessible". Flux And Permanence is amazing - that digital whining noise at the end caught me by surprise and I felt like my brain was being reprogrammed.

There is so much going on with his stuff that - as I have said before - I get brainache. Some fuckwits on another forum were trying to tell me that because JG release so much stuff there is no quality control - I gave up arguing on the internet when I lapsed puberty but I had to set the tards straight on that one!

Hah, I agree, I would have had to stick up for Kalmbach. You could point them to this interview with him, I really enjoyed reading it. Here's the pertinent bit:
Lets talk about that, you’ve got to be one of the most prolific musicians out there. 5 CDs this year alone and 13 total since 2006… that’s just crazy! What’s the cause of this production? Do you have a vast back catalog of written music or are you continually writing? A little of both. I’ve got a large back log of material and obviously since I’ve been recording since I was 18 without releasing it the back log is pretty big. I also write a lot. I have a part time job, so I have a lot of time to write and I’d go crazy otherwise. Of your 13 CDs, it’s split between the abrasive black metal and more ambient, electronic atmospheric stuff that’s completely different. What’s your logic for releasing them under the same moniker? Have you given any thought to releasing the atmospheric stuff under a different name? I guess I look at it like Perez, a composer who would compose some orchestral work but he would also compose a solo piece. It’s all the same personality coming through in the music. The only changes would only really be idiomatic or stylistic — it’s still the same mind creating it. It’s just different ways to express the same musical personality. Unless I had a really specific purpose for a project, I can’t see releasing anything under another name.
You could just as easily say that any band that hasn't passed the "vetting process" of getting signed by a label hasn't undergone "quality control" - just sounds like an excuse for not putting the work into listening, to me. I can certainly see how JG would sound like incoherent noise to people who weren't giving it their full attention. And I haven't listened to more than five or six albums... heh. Gotta get on that.

Yeah I read that interview too, AK seems like a sound bloke as well as being a genius musically. Knows his music references too dropping Perez in there. I have probably heard all of his stuff and it never waivers. Not really paid much attention to his ambient stuff though.

Re: Top 3 albums/eps of the week.

These are the three albums I've been listening to Religiously this week: Between The Buried And Me - The Parallax II: Future Sequence Baroness - Yellow Periphery - Clear EP
I know tons of people are on your side, but I can't stand BtBaM. It all just sounds like random nonsense to me, and this is coming from a fan of weird music. It feels like trying to put together pieces for 27 incomplete puzzled, some of the pieces look nice on their own, but they don't fit together and don't make a very cohesive or pretty picture.

Mayhem - De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Mournful Congregation - The June Frost Cathedral - Forest Of Equilibrium Those are the three albums which have stuck in my head all week
Well shit, one is my favorite black metal album, and another is my favorite doom metal album. Carry on. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

      3/5
