What Are You Listening To?

Recommended Posts

I have been listening to a lot of music by the bands Black Magick SS, Assassination, and Edelweiss lately.  They all play an interesting mix of keyboard-heavy, psychedelic rock/doom metal with some bm vocals.  I would highly recommend all of them if you are in the mood for something a little different.

@Balor do you ever listen to Genocide Organ? since I seem to remember you listen to noise/industrial or if I am mistaken just ignore this!

I have listened to Genocide Organ quite a bit, and really like the heavy industrial style that they represent.  I was recently listening my way through their Archive series, and have been meaning to listen to Obituary of the Americas.

Have you been listening to their music?

Arkona - 'Goi Rode Goi!'

I've flirted with Arkona for years but never gave them my full attention or purchased an album. I finally bought this, their 2009 classic, and I'm really glad I did. A fantastic folk metal album with an added Russian atmosphere, with surprisingly well produced and performed songs of worship and praise to the old gods. And Masha 'Scream' is an incredible vocalist, not to mention a stunning beauty worth of worship and praise.

Any particular clips you would recommend?  I have not seen many of their live videos.

    • 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!
