Anyone here listen to Usnea?
They're decent Funeral Doom with elements of Death Doom, Sludge, Black, and Drone Metal.

A little update: I have all guitars and keyboards done for Infected Nuclear Bioromance, with the exception of a guest solo spot and an organ intro to one of the songs, and I also have vocal tracks for 2/6 songs done. All is indeed going well in that regard.

As well, I also have started programming songs for the next album. The material I have so far is only 2 songs, neither in an even a rough state, and one of them not even at it's full length yet. However, what I have done so far is speedier and more ambitious than Infected Nuclear Bioromance, much as INB is more ambitious than Graveyard Metal. There are also technical advances, and I won't go into the boring details with those, but it's definitely a different approach than the one I've been using. Granted, the product appears to be analogous to previous works I have done, but I have broad hopes for the future. There's a lot of work ahead, so don't even expect me to enter the studio for the next album for 10-12 months.

Doing the necessary requisites for a live show, as well as finding a live lineup that's reliable has proven to be a task too elusive to pursue at the moment, since I have picked up several hours at work and have a committed relationship as well. It shall be forthcoming in the future, but my main Psycryptik priority is finishing Infected Nuclear Bioromance, so work on any other avenues will be slow at best until that is done.

Cheers, Khamul

I dunno if they'd be considered "metal" here but the band Dust (who are considered one of the first American Heavy Metal bands) have announced that they're going to remaster their two albums Dust and Hard Attack and will releases the remastered albums on one disc next month.

If anyone here hasn't given them a listen heres a few songs by them
Loose Goose
Suicide (that song was covered by Red Fang)

epic bass solo

Stone Woman

You know which band can easily put me in a good mood? Blind Guardian! Can't say I'm feeling the best right now but just blasting out the first two albums alone has put a smile on my face. Always good to have something that can lighten your mood in a difficult situation.

Their first two albums ALWAYS put a smile on my face. They're so head-bangable and perfect for driving.

I honestly love the speed metal times for the band. There isn't a single era of Blind Guardian that I dislike and you'll probably find me crazy for this but I actually enjoy A Twist in the Myth as well as everything else they've done. I can still see it as their weaker point but I still find plenty of songs to be enjoyable. Of course, sound production could have still been better for it.

So Vista Chino (formerly Kyuss Lives!....formerly Kyuss) played their first new song at. Its called Dragona and the only video I can find of it is pretty bad quality but you get the gist of what it sounds like.

Also if you follow the instructions on this site you can hear a new song from Ghost's new album.

It's feeling a lot different to the debut album which is a good thing but perhaps this is the kind of record that I'll need to spin many times to absorb it all. I enjoyed the first album a lot so I hope this one will be good as well. My sister will be picking it up sometime next month.

So far I'm liking how this album sounds.
Granted I still prefer Opus Eponymous more than this one, but it looks like its going to be another good album from them.
So I'm probably going to see if I can get a copy when its released (which might be later here....which bugs me).

Hey guys! It's been a long time. College has been absolutely killer lately, so I haven't had as much time for getting on here and posting stuff. Just letting you know that my Top 25 Albums of 2012 is complete, I just need to post it later today. Some new albums I've gotten:

Voivod's Target Earth- Holy shit. This album is probably their best since Nothingface. And I do not say that lightly as I loved Outer Limits and Katorz.

Audrey Horne's Youngblood- This is a solid, old school, bluesy metal album. Lots of fun.

I should be around a little more often now that things have slowed down (at least until finals in a month and a half).

Really liked the list you compiled there.
Reminded me that I still have some albums to check out from last year.

specifically Kamelot, Kreator, Vintersorg, and Sigh. I bought Apocryphon and De Vermis Mysteriis and loved them.

I've read just now that Boris have released an album, something like 8 days ago :) Apparently they have moved away from the dreampop of New Album and went for something between noise rock, drone, post-rock and some other stuff. I've read just one review for the album. Since it's kind of new, I figured there wouldn't be much reviews for it yet... but whatever.

The album is named Präparat, and I'm planning to give it a listen :)

Sup gangstas!

Been a while since posting, busy trying to be an adult, it sucks by the way, for the most part

Below is a link to some demo recordings from local doom metal band (heavy My dying bride influence) Burning Solitude. I use to play with them but technically left a month before these were done, but did it anyway. I play rhythm/solos, the other guitarist does rhythm and all harmonies/layers, or whatever the fuck you call them

You can check them out on facebook, hopefully they'll get back into it this year with a new lineup

Seriously how many albums are they going to release? xD
I still have like 5 or so albums by them that I still need to listen to!

I'll reserve my whole judgment for when I hear the album in full. Although I do rate the debut album 5 stars (as well as best of 2010), I still have to see what they do with the second release.

It's an enjoyable record for sure and I don't see myself as a huge fan of the classic works so that's saying something. I need to find some more 2013 releases as I've only heard that, Mysterium and Straight Out of Hell so far. All are great releases for sure, though but I feel Manilla Road played a little too safe with their latest album apart from the last few tracks.

At 3/13/13 09:09 PM, Zodir wrote: K, my Top 25 is finally done and up! Thoughts welcome!

To think two of my favourite releases from that year aren't even on your list. My two personal choices are Diablo Swing Orchestra's Pandora's Pinata and Threshold's March of Progress. Both albums I didn't get to listen to until the end of 2012, though so it seems like the better stuff from these years just creep up either when the year is about to close or the year after. Maybe 2012 wasn't such a slow year for metal as I originally thought it to be.

So far it seems as though the songs on there are probably going to be roughly similar to Secular Haze.
Which all in all I'm okay with.

Huh. Would've thought you'd listen to the new Darkthrone album...
Also if you're into "Stoner Metal" Spiritual Beggars are releasing a new album next month.
Heres a song off of the aforementioned.

A most devastating loss to the Maiden Family. Hallowed Be Thy Name was one of the greatest demonstrations of his drumming talent.

On a lighter note, Iron Maiden has a beer! It will be called "Trooper" and will be available soon.

Also, Boris EPs and Splits are not albums you want to miss on, either. There is way too much stuff to listen to in these guys discography.
