You really can get away with a lot in the realm of metal. The sheer number of different themes central to various bands and genres is part of what keeps metal interesting for me. Whether it's a depressing retelling of nautical literature at the hands of Ahab or a tale of dragon-slaying told by Rhapsody Of Fire, there will always be a huge variety of sounds to be heard and stories to be told throughout the metal universe.

It was meant to be a pun. And you were meant to go on with it.

Suddenly the come on that I got from Ana on that Boris thread seems WAY more appealing.

Has anyone heard this yet? (Yeah I'm trying to go back on track here)

Rating: 8 Back on topic, quick. Yeah I should listen to this. Both releases look yummy. Been on my list for a couple of weeks. Don't know with which I have to start though.

Duno, I should listen to both of them in a row to tell the difference as they are pretty similar. Maybe this one is a bit more melodic that their debut.

OK. Thanks. I'll get around to it then, it looks like it's a quality album as well.

Rating: 9 Why haven't I listened to this yet? The one song they released from it ages ago absolute slew.. slayed... pretty much everything on their debut so I'm sure this will do nice things for me.

If you're really asking for an answer I can give it to you. But yeah I heard a couple from their debut and I was "disappointed", although I'm a bit exaggerating, as Gastronomicon was my first contact with them.

I was mostly being rhetorical, but I think this is one of those albums with a weird mental barrier in front of it. Albums I know I want to listen to but just don't and sometimes avoid doing so for months. Sounds like this is shaping up to be an improvement then.

After posting that, I went on and listened to the rest of the debut. There seems to be zero mental barrier for me and this band.

Wow I wasn't expecting so much hate. Sorry, that was really just a casual comment on my part. You're obviously too jelly.
Can I keep my fucking medal?

Only if you actually print it out and wear it, and take a photo of it at a party or gathering

  Slugdge is a band that I have been neglecting for awhile. Let me rectify that now.

Rating: 9 This album and their debut are unbelievable as home made albums. Some goddamn labels sign with them already.

  Listening now. The intro song is absolutely glorious.
Zaphod - 24.07.2014 at 18:42  
  Holy fuck. Just one song in, but if it keeps up the quality this might be one of my favorite albums of the year...
Troy Killjoy - 27.07.2014 at 20:27  
  I have too many albums in need of listening to and... well, not not enough time, but not enough... I dunno. Enthusiasm or something.

Commenting to remind myself to actually listen to this instead of reading comments about it and watching crap on Youtube instead.

Rating: 8 I thought you had already listened to it. I think you said so in a news thread related to the band. I might be mistaken and you might have been talking about the debut, in any case, this one needs to be listened to. It's better than the debut.

I think I listened to a song and asked if the band was worth listening to and for a comparison. People mentioned the big names in blackened sludge and said it's along those lines which interests me but ya... I've been lazy with listening to new albums.
