Death-Doom

Recommended Posts

I know there's a doom section, but doom in general doesn't really interest me. I like Evoken a lot, but that's about it.

I would, however, be very interested to hear any death-doom recommendations.

I really like Krypts, separate thread about them here:

And I'm really enjoying this album:

Ataraxy's first release is also good.

Now I want more. More!

This is pretty good.

 

Fuck yes it is, I've been pumping those guys since their demos. Paul is a good dude, I've known him since we played with Velnias ages ago. They're basically the same band as Blood Incantation, almost all the same members.

I only found this yesterday, some full on detailed textures right there.

 

EDIT : Are Blood Incantation any good? Similar sound to Spectral Voice?

Quite different I'd say, but seem to be held in equally high regard. SV is definitely more my cup of tea.

P.S. Just ordered myself a copy of Eroded Corridors of Unbeing :)

I have to say I don't get the love for Blood Incantation. On paper I ought to love them. They have cool ideas, but something about their songwriting loses me.

That's what held me back from ordering the SV album for so long if I'm honest. But on paper I ought to love them a lot - they're a bit like Evoken and Krypts combined, two of my favourite bands... so yeah, feel I at least need to give listening to it repeatedly at full quality a go. Have a feeling it will probably work too, where there's a will there's a way and all that :)

Blood Incantation are a Dark Descent band, and Dark Descent is where it's 'at' right now (for good reason). So that might explain the unwarranted love, if indeed it is unwarranted (they’re a lot less my kind of thing on paper, so I can't really comment).

Yes, Blood Incantation is awesome. They combine the blasphemous sound of the first couple of Morbid Angel albums with the weirder and more adventurous tendencies of Demilich, Immolation, Atrocity, Gorguts, etc... One of my favorite newer death metal bands ATM, and I'm a bit surprised that to see others not share the same sentiment. They fucking destroyed live too, so I would suggest giving them a chance in that setting at least to see if something clicks.

The Spectral Voice album is definitely growing on me.

Also now picked up a copy of this EP, which I liked loads from the first listen...

...and grabbed the two other tracks available on their Bandcamp, which aren't bad.

    • Sorry deathstorm, I don’t like it.

      It took me a while to come round to Amaranthe. I first heard them when they were announced for the roster of ProgPower XIII and thought they sounded too poppy, sage musical critic that I was. I did entertain the idea that that was the entire point, but dismissed them as being too technically lacking in any case. Their second album, The Nexus, featuring the least inventive album art I’d seen in a while, was a marked improvement, with its title track nearly a total ripoff of the leading single from their self-titled debut but a demonstrably better take. Everything was more or less the same, just done right. The riffs were on point, there were a higher proportion of peppy bubblegum tracks that sounded like Cascada doing djent (or just a slightly less sugary Blood Stain Child) – it was their best album. They followed this up with Massive Addictive, a somewhat weaker but nonetheless slightly different album with a couple tracks that sounded like they could have been composed by MrWeebl. As far as third albums went, it wasn’t bad – and the slow songs were actually all rights, even on the acoustic versions. It was also a little closer to regular melodeath. That brings us to Maximalism.

      In principle, the concept behind this album is fine. Amaranthe always imitated pop, so why not imitate current pop? It could inject some life into this worthless moribund slurry of pink noise that the post-Trump miasma has been nice enough to slowly excrete over this most recent tax period. I mean, the only way this would could fail is if modern pop were so limp-wristed and ineffectual that even the nuclear cocaine infusion of metal failed to resuscitate its bloated heart.

      Whoops.

      It’s fascinating how one can avoid actually discussing the album for so long here just because of the hilarious incidental commentary. All of the songs here a poppy in an obligatory sense, rather like the current generation of pop. I remember hating Ke$ha back in 2012 when she was big, but hearing “Tik Tok” after a bleak slog through a bunch of mopey nonsensical dogshit and limp-wristed soggy whining is a godsend. At best, Maximalism is a poor man’s version of their previous output, and at worst it’s an imitation of modern pop in the sense that you don’t remember anything about it other than that it sucked. Anyway, what about the actual songs?

    • "Wizard Bloody Wizard" is like the lifting of a thick fog.  From the off there's a feel of a dense weight being lifted from the band's signature occult/stoner blend of doom.  By the time I get to track two "Necromania" things almost seem like a dark cock-rock affair which is odd.   The over-arching feel though is of a band who have gone off the boil somewhat.  Despite the aforementioned lifting of the heavy atmosphere "Wizard Bloody Wizard" seems more of ground out effort made under some duress resulting in the album being robbed in the main of any feel...

    • I am a huge Cradle of Filth fan and on the album Hammer of The Witches they have a song called Right Wing of The Garden Triptych and based on the lyrics I believe it is a reference to the painting Garden of Earthy Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. Does anyone know if this is true or not?

    • Whether you love or hate Cannibal Corpse, their penchant for churning out accessible, fun and consistent DM can't be denied. Yes when they suck they really do suck (Gallery of Suicide), but even if technically never more complicated than most Kinder egg toys there's always a familiarity to CC albums that appeals. I get those that hate that familiarity. If you prefer to become lost in a Portalesque vortex when enjoying your extreme metal then the obvious churn of CC won't be for you. However, for every complex and archaic DM record in my collection I like to have a fair amount of surety too (someone will be along in a minute to replace "surety" with "safety" no doubt) and "Red Before Black" is as familiar to me after a few listens as most of the band's previous output...
