06:35 - Apothecary We'll just have to agree to disagree then, as much as I love both bands, I still consider Zeppelin and Deep Purple hard rock at the very most
06:34 - flightoficarus Big sale at Willowtip. Best band there besides Ulcerate and Gigan?
06:33 - Apothecary Doom/stoner/sludge has its roots in Sabbath, and power and speed/thrash in Priest. I'd say everything else was just bands taking those categories and then building upon them to create new ones
06:30 - deadone That doesn't preclude Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin being pioneers in heavy metal and as such considered part of the genre, even though they happily sit outside it sometimes.
06:28 - Apothecary You're probably right for NWOBHM, but I would say that was because they were mostly influenced by Priest, not Sabbath. I think those bands very much started two divergent roads in metal, but both were the unofficial "pioneers"
05:24 - deadone That's historical revisionism. Bare in mind most NWOBHM metal bands didn't do " dark, heavy." Most speed/thrash wasn't that heavy either. Indeed Sabbathian heaviness was kept alive by doom metal.
Most prog fans still remember Dissona after their self-titled album released last year, but they have surprised the fans by revealing that they would be sharing a previously unreleased album, Ten Masks. The album was recorded in 2009 and it is now available as a digital release and stream on their Bandcamp page.
Dissona posted this on their Facebook page: "Here it is! Previously unreleased material back from 2009! This album was dated and doesn't necessarily reflect our current sound but we would like to share with you our early musical endeavors for your enjoyment!"
Ten Masks tracklist:
01. The Arboreal Infection
02. Under The Wing
07. Sky Abyss
