Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm Gianni from Padua (Italy). I'm 26 years old and I listen metal since I was 14. I love avant-garde, death,black and progressive metal and some of my favorite band are: Septicflesh, Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, Korn, Meshuggah, Celtic frost, Sentenced, Triptykon, Synphony X I also listen to classical music and Progresive Rock (PFM, Banco del muto soccorso :P ) ...and another thing... sorry for my english... the main reason why I joined the forum is regain confidence with the English language :P :P :P

Welcome Gangrel! We have a couple of Italians now I think. 12 years of Metal is a good figure. :-) Nice band list, a few of my faves. I too listen to classical music. Especially when I need to concentrate and when I am coding harder stuff. This should be a cool place to work on your English, you'll find us to be a pleasant sort and we'll help you along. You are very welcome here.

Ciao Gianni! I am also new here :) Don't worry about your English, a lot of people would be proud to speak two languages. I LOVE Septic Flesh \m/ It's cool you like Korn too because I feel like metalheads give them so much hate! Life is Peachy is a good album :) Nice to see some classical music fans in too - big fan myself!

I love avant-garde' date=' death,black and progressive metal[/quote'] Another prog head! And avant-garde to boot! Excellent.:D It's been very lonely here in Prog Corner. I might recommend Blut Aus Nord or Sigh if you haven't heard them already.

Re: hello everybody :)

Iceni - maybe you can introduce me to some Avant Garde and Prog - two genres I have very little exposure to!
RelentlessOblivion started threads in most of the genre sections seeking recommendations, and I have responded to them with video links. There have been other responses as well, but I feel the videos take the leg work out of it. Can't remember the name of the thread for prog/avant-garde though, maybe somebody else remembers.

I could hug you for recommending those bands' date=' two of my favorites.[/quote'] They're the only two avant-garde black metal bands I could think of...while we're on the subject, are there any other Sigh albums that sound like Imaginary Soniscape? Their latest stuff seems a bit mixed to me and I really didn't like Songs From Hell.

Scenario IV: Dread Dreams is when they really started to get get weird, and while it's not as 70's sounding as Imaginary Sonicscape, you'd probably still like it. I don't have either of their newest album, but Hangman's Hymn would probably also suit you well.

    • 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
