Anyone here listen to Sangoma?
If not, imagine a band who is a bit of a mix of Albatross Overdrive and The Sword.

I like this chappie.

Picked up:

Bathory - Under The Sign Of The Black Mark
Manowar - Battle Hymns
Manowar - Sign Of The Hammer

Looking forward to spinning them. Going to have a bottle of mead with them. Dunno though, I'm not feeling too tip-top.

Exodus, Slayer, Spawn Of Possession, Lamb Of God, Death, Cannibal Corpse, Obituary and Beyond Creation are all good. The others are on the verge between musical genres and we do not accept SoaD or Rammstein as metal bands. However, your list includes far enough material that is fitting. I'm happy to know that there are other Beyond Creation fans. And Death is amazing :)

Since you like Spawn Of Possession and Beyond Creation, I recommand you Blood Red Throne, Blotted Science, Necrophagist, Gorod and Origin. Tell me if you like any of these :D

Yes I did, I bought a old man mask this year and painted it, the mask paint is peeling off in places adding the look of decay. Its fucking awesome, I'm going to have my girlfriend make a new better hat next year and I'm going to invest in some contacts.

I too did a repeat of what I did last year for Halloween. Had the Abbath corpse paint on. However, I had to put the make up on myself and when you've not done face painting on yourself before the results can be disastrous but I think it turned out fine considering the circumstances. Not perfect but it did the job for a single night.

Ya know, I've come to the conclusion if there was one man in all of black metal I could meet it would be Gaahl. I could have deep deep conversations with the man, he just seems like the type I would get along with, I wanted to see his grand parents cabin on the mountain and venture the Norwegian forests. I also think in my own opinion he has the best vocals for black metal for his time.

Well I just found out why there isn't any new Electric Wizard material at the moment....

this is a translated version of an interview that was in Portuguese

"Thanks for responding, Jus. Black Sail were immensely grateful for that. Well, 2014 is coming and the first question is: is there new stuff? If yes, is expected to launch?

Jus: We have a new LP but it can not be released. Rise Above Records have a lawyer to stop us releasing records or even using our name. Of course we are fighting with the law ... but it is all money, money, money .... Maybe our fans will convince Them to treat us with respect."

So....yeah. There you have it. It's all Rise Above's fault.

Which Burzum are you talking about? When they were Black Metal or the newer stuff that primarily Dark Ambient Electronic?

Rings of Saturn

I felt they were really meh when I heard em. Their sound is really uninspiring.

I'm more fond of his last few albums than his earlier stuff. Granted I like his older stuff but my favorite albums by them are Umskiptar and Sôl austan, Mâni vestan. Though from their "older" stuff I like Filosofem and Aske.
I have a bunch of Burzum stuff on my computer. But it's all so disorganized that it's going to take me like an hour before it's all sorted correctly and everything is where it's supposed to be. Still not as bad as when I was organizing my Acid Mothers Temple stuff.....I had to go through about 70 albums and make sure all of the individual songs had the correct tags because over 80% of em were all jumbled up with unknown artist stuff and had no track times til I went in and fixed it all.
Took me over 2 hours to do so. Pain in the ass.....the music is amazing though.

Saw em live, they put on a good show. Haven't listened to album stuff, but they were fun to see.

HeavenDuff wrote a review for their newest album Dingir and after listening to some of their album stuff I agree with him.
Heres the review if you wanna read it.

I recently discovered the Power Metal pseudo-parody band Gloryhammer. All in all their music is surprisingly good despite only having one concept album about an alternate history in which Scotland is taken over by an evil sorcerer and his army of undead unicorns. Seriously, look it up.

From my first listen through, Sôl austan, Mâni vestan didn't really impress me, but I think maybe I went into it expecting something more. It reminded me of Mortiis' early stuff, but not in a good way. More in a "this is really repetitive." kind of way. Haven't tried Umskiptar yet, though. All of Burzum's black metal albums (Filosofem especially) are fantastic IMO, and his prison stuff (Dauði Baldrs in particular) is great dark ambient.

I listened to Ulver for the first time the other day (Bergtatt), and honestly, I couldn't get into it. I'll give another one of their albums a spin, since I have heard great things. Any recommendations as to which one I should try?

Nattens Madrigal, if you want the metal stuff.

If you're in the mood for not-metal they have like eight other albums spanning as many different genres, from minimalist experimental, to folk, to instrumental/vocal to vast and orchestral.

Well guys, I took some time off these forums for a bit but I'm back on, mainly just for this thread. I saw Dying Fetus a couple of weeks ago along with Exhumed, Abiotic and Rivers of Nihil. Abiotic is really something special, I'd recommend each and every one of you to check out their album "Symbiosis".

I saw you guys talking about Burzum and Varg and such and I knew I needed to start posting here again. I've fallen in love with Burzum, Mayhem, Darkthrone etc. All that kvlt stuff.

Also I've recently picked up drumming. Anyone here play drums? I'd love to talk about that, too. Anyway here's me with Dying Fetus, November 1st at Gramercy Theatre.

It depends on what Ulver you want. If you want the black metal stuff, Bergtatt is pretty good and you should definitely give it another listen. Nattens Madrigal makes my ears bleed but there are some good tracks and riffs on this album.

If you want to listen to their trip-hop/ambient electronic/experimental metal/stuff stuff stuff...

Then you should try A Quick Fix Of Melancholy, Perdition City and Blood Inside and Themes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell. The first two are my all time favorites by Ulver. Close third would be Bergtatt.

I guess William Blake's seems to be a bit underrated compared to Ulver's other stuff. It has some really good stuff. Voice of the Devil, the Argument, and a Song of Liberty especially stand out to me. Lykanthropen Themes and Svidd Neger have some really nice moments, too, though, especially Wild Cat and Wheel of Conclusion. And Theme 7 and Rock Massif parts one and two are actually among my favorite Ulver tracks. Theme 7 is a really nice chill song that I listen to a lot, even though it sometimes has a way of putting a lump in my throat. Something about it is emotional to me.

We do not often discuss these albums because of the other masterpieces they've released. But with such a consistently great discography, stuff like that has to happen. I like Themes From William Blake's because of the use of guitars in such an atmospheric album. I see it as the "most metal" album of their electronic era. They've never used the guitars quite as much after this, for better or worst I don't know. But this album is definitely great in it's own rights.

As for Svidd Neger (watch out thatkidkenji could read this) and Lykanthropen Themes, I don't think they have a single bad track. These two albums are more about creating a coherent and rather monolithic atmosphere compared to Perdition City or A Quick Fix Of Melancholy. The latest two cover much more ground as far as exploration, experimentation, diversity and moods are involved.

I'll stand by my decision... if there are any two albums I'd highly recommand for Ulver, it would have to be these two. But there aren't much albums from their discog that I'd not recommand. Wars Of The Roses isn't has good as their previous efforts... so if there is one I wouldn't recommand it's this one. Otherwise I still haven't given a proper listen to Messe I.X - VI.X so I can't talk about this one.

Totally getting to go see The Sword and Clutch next Tuesday.

This is what The Sword's average Set List looks like for this tour:
Apocryphon
Cloak of Feathers
How Heavy This Axe
Tres Brujas
The Hidden Masters
The Veil of Isis
Freya
Arrows in the Dark
Dying Earth
Maiden, Mother & Crone
To Take the Black
Seven Sisters

And then they've been doing either: Barael's Blade, Cheap Sunglasses, Working Man, or Iron Swan for an Encore.

Totally going to see if I can bring all 4 of my The Sword CDs and get em signed.
