00:42 - musclassia Also, Benjamin Breeg is a great song too - haven't listened to AMOLAD in forever, but I've always really liked that last 4 songs on it, especially The Legacy
00:38 - musclassia There's a couple of songs off X Factor and Virtual XI that might be interesting to hear re-recorded with Bruce, including that one (also Futureal). But I honestly struggle to listen to Bayley in Maiden, such a bad match IMO
22:52 - Apothecary So is this one [link] always been one of my favorites
22:38 - The RedOctober A very underrated song on Iron Maiden catalogue I think. [link] Maybe again suffering from the good old syndrome.
22:23 - Apothecary But yeah, spin Altar if you haven't yet. Possibly the best drone album evar
22:22 - Apothecary Altar, even though it's really a collab, and Black One. Monoliths And Dimensions is great too, although I know some find it over-ambitious
Something very nasty must happen to leave behind my admiration for the German black metal scene of the later years and Infestus are not here to serve this cause. Being a one-man band nowadays, Andras takes care of everything and the third full-length is reality. E x | I s t its title and the existential matters keep on breathing through the sullen, grey cover artwork which prepares the listener in the most appropriate way.
Agreed for the most part, this and Negative Plane's latest are excellent releases, but my personal tastes are drawn more to Woods of Desolation and Deafheaven.
Dort, wo das alte Böse ruht is a great black metal album as well. 2011 is not too shabby thus far.
Deafheaven and Woods are a little too effusive for me to love, too heavy on the melody and not enough concentration on a strong, unique sound (or at least one that doesn't pander so much to that blackgaze sound anyway). Still nice stuff though. If you haven't yet get round to listening to that Verwüstung record, I reckon it's right up your proverbial alley.
I feel sad giving this such belated praise, but returned to down spiral personification whilst getting drunk and remember just what a quality album this truly is. Sad it's name alone removed much of its praise opportunity, but a truly great album given such an impreassive 2014 followup
