James t this album I think you'd like given some of other music you like. It's et moriemurs new one. It's Japanese themed one. It's called tamashii no Yama. It's mixes very well played atmospheric orchestral stuff with Japanese themes and metal. I like this alot.  Well worth a listen. It's the best album I've heard in months. 

Ok re jamming I understand. I certainly do that more in the car these days and not so much at home. It makes journeys more interesting ☺️

Yeah good plan to listen to deathcore metal in waves. I listen to many styles of metal and I Do the same. I listen to different genres of metal depending how I am that day. If I've had a bad day put on the sad doomy stuff, thrash music if I'm bit energetic. 

 

Yep, exactly the same for me!  Groove is my favorite metal subgenre, followed by thrash and traditional heavy metal.  Lately, I've been rocking out to Bullet - a Swedish classic-sounding metal band.  They've been around since 2006, but their music sounds like it's from the 80's.  Killer stuff.  Great guitar work and perfect vocals for the style.  The singer sounds like a mix of Brian Johnson and Udo, if you can picture that.  The band is criminally underrated.  If you get a chance, try their 2011 album "Highway Pirates".  My favorite Bullet album, and it's a blast to listen to.  Happy listening!

Dimmu Borgir. The "realness" of their sound has done a sharp right turn after ICS Vortex and Mustis were fired. They were truly the heart and soul of the band musically. It was incredibly disappointing to learn that Shagrath wasn't treating them like it. Even in their live shows - sure it's quite a spectacle, but an entire choir cannot fill Vortex's spot. The energetic contrast between their shows from early 2000s vs more recent ones is striking. And disappointing, honestly. It leaves me wondering if Shagrath fired them from a place of jealousy. Vortex specifically had such a huge stage presence, no one can really compare. I hope whatever they are both doing, they are being appropriately appreciated.

...but is their style of music really that much different from their early albums? I'm not really a huge follower of Dimmu Borgir, but haven't they always been a symphonic black metal band? They've just become more bombastic over the years

(Sorry if I'm not replying correctly, I'm a noob!) That's true, they've always been symphonic, but maybe I mean more of the quality of their production has changed, since Mustis was the powerhouse of their discography. He wrote the songs on keys first and wrote most of the lyrics (he left the band since Shagrath was not crediting him for this). And Vortex's clean vocals were IMO a key element to their sound. They were both the genuine talent in the band, so Dimmu has had to compensate for their loss by, well, becoming more bombastic.

The name is amazing and right up my way of thinking. Highway pirates. Ohh ahhhh matey 😁 thanks for the recommendation. It's very catchy. Pleased you like it. If I was looking for classic rock I'd go for this but not for me at the moment . Vocal wise I agree it's mostly Brian Johnson with other influences in there. I'm hearing Bruce Dickinson in places particularly the snarl on a number of tracks, Cinderella Tom kiefer style vocals too and there was one track which reminds of deep purple highway star solo a bit which is cool as I like that track alot. Udo I will Google that. Udo?never heard of them

 

Mispyrming album Algleymi is worth a listen especially island steingelda track. It's kind of rock n roll meets metal. Vocals kind of remind bit of machine head rob Flynn

I've been listening to yob's album our raw heart. I still have not heard all of it but I'm liking it what Ive heard so far. It kind of reminds me of doom with some grunge  Chris Cornell in places too. Cool cover art too.  I want to listen to few tracks before I buy. I don't know about you but I've bought albums on the basis of a few tracks only to find there the only tracks I like and the rest is filler 🫣

Glad you liked Bullet!  They're certainly one of my top 10 bands of all time.  Udo Dirkschneider is a classic metal vocalist - originally in Accept and now in his own band called U.D.O.  His voice is very unique.  

I'll definitely have to check out Mispyrming!  If it's rock 'n' roll meets metal, it's welcome in my collection.  

Yes, I've certainly bought an album based on a few tracks, only to find out that those were the only tracks I could get into.  It's such a bummer!  

I'm currently on a thrash kick - "M-16" by Sodom at the moment!

For mispyrming the album I recommended is the one I mentioned, I don't know about there other stuff.  You might not like it as it's black metal. Although Id say it's got lots of other influences in it so it's not just black metal. The review described it as black n roll but I'm hearing other influences other than those 2. Track 3 is really cool and catchy reminds me of rob Flynn vocals for machine head.

Have you heard of yob. I know not much of them. I just bought there my raw heart album which I'm liking. If you don't like the first recommendation. You may well like yob. Kind of doom, stoner doom for this album at least. 

 

 

 

Accept I've heard some of there stuff. Yeah reminded me of acdc singing but with very catchy riffs. I'm not there biggest fan but will check out udo's solo career. 

Im sure bullet are well happy you rate them so highly. Have you seen them play live 

Thanks for recommendation

I have heard some of YOB and really like their stuff!  I haven't heard that album, though, so I'll be checking it out shortly.  

 

Unfortunately, I've never gotten to see Bullet play live.  I live in the States, and I'm not sure how often those guys tour over here.  I'm sure they tour all around their home country of Sweden, but if they ever come over to the States, I'll be right there on the front row!  Thanks for the heads-up on YOB.  I'm getting ready to listen to it now!

    • 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!

    • Full length number 19 from overkill certainly makes a splash in the energy stakes, I mean there's some modern thrash bands that are a good two decades younger than Overkill who can only hope to achieve the levels of spunk that New Jersey's finest produce here.  That in itself is an achievement, for a band of Overkill's stature and reputation to be able to still sound relevant four decades into their career is no mean feat.  Even in the albums weaker moments it never gets redundant and the energy levels remain high.  There's a real sense of a band in a state of some renewed vigour, helped in no small part by the addition of Jason Bittner on drums.  The former Flotsam & Jetsam skinsman is nothing short of superb throughout "The Wings of War" and seems to have squeezed a little extra out of the rest of his peers.

      The album kicks of with a great build to opening track "Last Man Standing" and for the first 4 tracks of the album the Overkill crew stomp, bash and groove their way to a solid level of consistency.  The lead work is of particular note and Blitz sounds as sneery and scathing as ever.  The album is well produced and mixed too with all parts of the thrash machine audible as the five piece hammer away at your skull with the usual blend of chugging riffs and infectious anthems.  


      There are weak moments as mentioned but they are more a victim of how good the strong tracks are.  In it's own right "Distortion" is a solid enough - if not slightly varied a journey from the last offering - but it just doesn't stand up well against a "Bat Shit Crazy" or a "Head of a Pin".  As the album draws to a close you get the increasing impression that the last few tracks are rescued really by some great solos and stomping skin work which is a shame because trimming of a couple of tracks may have made this less obvious. 

      4/5
