Hopeful Batushka will finally put something new out, but I seriously doubt it.  I would hope for a new Drudkh release as well (on cd, not an extremely limited vinyl or cassette).

Anyone have a list of new albums coming out next year?  I saw one for 2017 a while ago, and wonder if there is a new one on the internet somewhere.

Starkweather's split with Concealment is coming out early next year and it's dope. Also, Imperial Triumphant, Baring Teeth, Grave Upheaval, Mitochondrion, Zealotry, Portal, Behemoth, maybe Burial In The Sky...

Maaaybe Unhuman...

 

 

Maaaaaaaybe finally that fucking ANATA album... fingers crossed!

Hell yeah!

I need to pay more attention to these threads.

Wikipedia is saying Shining, Watain, Ozzy Osbourne, Mick Mars (yep...) and Amorphis could have albums out next year!

Also, hopefully as some kind of joke, but it says a Satyricon covers album which I’m about to google. 

Also, I think the timing is right for this thread, nice one Deathy. Even though it feels like only a little while ago I was psyched for new Cradle, Paradise Lost and Septicflesh, it’s now November and all of those albums have been and gone! How time flies!

MegaDave said he'd be entering the studio late this year, I think I might be more exited about that than most forum members.

The Path to R'Lyeh Facebook page just said "The next album will be much more tech death" does this mean there are songs written ?

Batushka are a bunch of hacks, honestly.

Why?  Their album was good.

I suppose it´s the secrecy of identities, similarities with Cult of fire, using an orthodox theme etc.. it´s all a bit.. deliberate. I personally love the album, music is the king for me.. always will be.

It's the music that turns me off. It's bland, paint by numbers. Nothing really off, but no risks taken and no genuine inspiration to be found. The sound is a bit thick and artificial IMO as well. My overall impression is of a commercial product. I don't hate it, I really think the baritone vocals are fucking great, but I have to say it doesn't deserve the accolades that it gets. Kind of like Mgla for me. The gimmicks don't affect it one way or another.

Their entire sound can be summed up as "Mgla ripoff with 100x more gimmickry". 

Haha, cool, beat me to it.

I failed to mention this before but it's that stuff that makes the completely derivative nature of Batushka's music even more unpalatable. It comes off as totally pretentious drivel.

Well, we can´t all like everything. :) I find it interesting how Batushka has been speculated having members from ie. Mgla and Behemoth, quite possibly just clever marketing with the identity bullcrap. I don´t know what it is about the combination with Batushka, that just hits me in the right spots.. it just does (musically, don´t care about other stuff). Most who i´ve seen criticising the band usually seem to blame the 3 things i mentioned.

I think it might be too soon to label them a gimmick.  I would wait for a new album (if they actually make one) before passing judgement, for we would have more context then.

Has anyone ever cross-referenced touring schedules to check if it might be possible for members of Batushka to be in either Mgla or Behemoth?

I actually thought the same, but have yet to do it myself.  I will look into it.

Looking at the tour dates, it seems plausible but unlikely.  While they are all in Europe around the same time, they are in different countries.

    • 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...
