Rate the song above you!

Recommended Posts

Re: Rate the song above you! That was downright awesome until right at the end where the vocals got a bit raw. Otherwise, I liked how the vocals were farther back in the mix nestled between the fantastically ambient keyboard and very good tremolo guitar. The drumming got better as time went on. Probably about 8/10. C5c0fy5X-7Y This band needs some more attention...

Re: Rate the song above you! No better song has been written in the history of the world. I was gonna give it an 8/10 but now I'm gonna give it an ?/10. Now I'm strangely obsessed with the really catchy drum beats in this song. Makes me want to dance around like a snake. gwj3gFNqc4k

Re: Rate the song above you! Oh, I do appreciate whenever a black metal band decides not to go full-bore tremolo on all of the drums...that was something I enjoyed. Always appreciated that about Melechesh. I did like the guitar but it got a bit monotonous at times. A riff might be awesome but if you just repeat it over and over it gets old. The vocals were OK, so probably about 7.5/10. sP_7hwL_gGw The French continue to make great technical death metal...

Re: Rate the song above you! Pretty good. I liked how it was melodic at times whithout becoming "whimsical." That's not to say I don't love whimsical moments even in metal, but it's cool that they can avoid it if they want to without completely avoiding progressive elements. 8/10. Now you can't mention french tech death without giving the french canadians a little love. wrAHhZuSeSY

Re: Rate the song above you! Well, Quo Vadis happens to be my favorite technical death metal band... Did like that, the guitars were good, the drumming was nice, and the atmosphere was admirable. The vocals were also good. So about 8/10 again. fkaX6h1d1K4&feature=relmfu The new album with this song is coming out on October 14th.

Re: Rate the song above you! I'm a fan of the song, but not the music video. I'll be honest- around about 1:26 I was waiting for the disco ball to fall on the singer's head. :) But anyway, impressive guitar solos, and I like the singer's high and low range. Lots of feeling and expression overall. It's hard to get into the video though. 7/10. This one is just fun to blast LOUD. f3R2uE2l8R4

Re: Rate the song above you! Not bad, but the riffs got a bit repetitive and the singer was rough around the edges. But the groove was good and the guitar was nice nonetheless. Probably 7/10. kJWI8ninwOY Some more awesome prog for you lot. 8-)

No
0/10; that was totally useless... Whatever. 6/10 for the song that apoc posted. It was OK but nothing spectacular. This is their new album, just came out yesterday... U-iKSu6Wx3Y Tunisian progressive metal masters Myrath! One of my absolute favorite prog groups. :mrgreen:

Off the chain. ;)
Ermm...if this a compliment I'm thankful, but on this thread you'd usually provide more numerical data, such as a scale of one to ten. After that, you post a song. It's quid pro quo. I post a song and rate yours, then you rate my song and post one for the next poster to review.

I'm aware, I'm just out of control. It wasn't a compliment or an insult. It was just describing me.

Re: Rate the song above you! Can't say I cared for that too much. Sounded like the intersection of Pillar, Sevendust and Insomnium. The guitar was fine in parts but got annoying in others. Drumming was fine but not great. I didn't like the vocals much either. So 6-7/10 probably. I find it funny that you say you don't like Texas yet your favorite band is Texan. And this song came across as Southern too. Tech death with some groovy bass. Aw yeaoh. :mrgreen: MiHncIwPDXE

Re: Rate the song above you! Meh. The vocals were better than what I expected, and everything else was OK, nice enough but not stellar. The lyrics were...lazily written. It wasn't as annoying as some purists would have me believe, but I wasn't blown away. One of my favorite prog metal songs ever: 4Dp1gQexXBc

Re: Rate the song above you! Aside from the solo and occasional ambient guitar, that was just...boring. Drums were boring, rhythm guitars were boring and vocals were OK. Probably 6/10. Let's have some real death metal! tn3YZhrJgEQ 2:09 HEADBAAANG

Re: Rate the song above you! Well, I definitely liked that better. Guitar was great, drumming was good and vocals were good. Their style of blackened death metal sounds unique to me, but that's probably because I'm hearing them for the first time. 8.5/10 for that. I see I haven't put these guys up! -ZQrGMvpQKI Great Swedish prog for you. Turn it up, though, it's a bit quiet.

Re: Rate the song above you! Thank you for posting! I have a friend who's an awesome guitarist and he said these guys were one of his favorite bands. They definitely seem to be a guitarist's delight, that's for sure. They actually remind me of Fleshgod Apocalypse, especially in the way they do drums. However, I really don't like the vocals so much. Probably an 8.5/10. Otherwise, it was great. MQIa3_ViaQw My second favorite prog band.

    • 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
