09:01 - Apothecary Everything in Enslaved's discog is pretty engaging and high quality if you ask me, they're remarkably consistent. Only one of their full lengths has below an 8 on here, and even then it's a 7.9. That says a lot
08:56 - Stereolab42 The lower-rated Enslaved albums are lower-rated for a reason. Blech. They have crazy-good highs and boring-ass, sleep-inducing lows.
07:27 - Apothecary I might prefer only AOE to Monumension, but I've been listening to the latter a lot over this past weekend, and I'm thinking that may change pretty soon
US sludge metallers Mouth Of The Architect have announced on their official website that they are working on new material to release this year. The band also plans to tour the US and Europe soon.
Here's the update from the band: "Holy Shit... it's been a while since we've put anything new up on here. So our break is almost over and we are doing better for it. But now we can't wait to get back on the road with some new music. New songs are in the works and will be coming out on the Falling Down compilation CD from France. We are also shopping for a new label and booking agency to do our next record with. Let us know if you are interested or want to help us out in any way. We really appreciate all of your support. Look for us to be around the US and Europe in early 2012. We miss all of you from the road... and we'll be seeing you soon. Yeah and I need to update the merch on here as we are out of a lot of stuff and will be doing some new shit here soon. Love ya bitches, MOTA."
Compilations of mostly european post-metal bands, cult of luna, the ocean and lesser known ones (eg Tesa, Time to Burn etc). First one is good but 2nd one has some exclusive tracks on it and 3rd one I think will have a lot more exclusive/new material too. Can't wait. If you like that type of music then these things are welll worth it imo
