04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
As much as I find Igorrr an interesting band, I do bear a grudge that it is featured on this site....
Not so much in itself but the fact that other bands are not, which are more relevant.
Sure Igorrr has some occasional splashes of extreme metal in it, but it's not all that prominent part of the sound or the band.
bah, i'm just annoyed that Mogwai aren't featured.
The metallic heaviness they can pull off (look up: We're no here) and the fact that they're an really influential band could have granted them a spot here.
Didn't know where to post this so it ended up here.
Other than that this album is interesting to say the least, I have to listen to it in moderation in order not to get a headache because of all the twists and turns.... interpret that however you want.
