I just listened to the new Suffocation album and I have to say it was a let down. The only new song I liked was Inversion but everything sounded so bad because of the overproduced quality. They've completely removed all bass and all high frequencies to make the guitars and vocals clear but it also made it boring to listen to since it lacked variations in the sounds.

Don Anderson's guitar was sold for $US 1775. I hope the new owner will play a lot of Agalloch with it !

I'm trying to get my hands on some of the material by Vladimir Cochet. He's a musician from Switzerland who his pretty much a one-man-band... or a one-man-three-band :P He worked alone (and sometimes with others for brief moments) on various projects. I have some of his stuff with the project Mirrorthrone, which is an Experimental Atmospheric Death/Black Metal band. But I can't find anything from his project Unholy Matrimony and Weeping Birth. Those projects look completely amazing! If you guys have anything to share, please do :) And otherwise, check his work. It's well worth it!

Got two Blind Guardian CDs last night.
Tales From The Twilight World and Imaginations From The Other Side.

Also my sister's boyfriend is still trying to use my N64.
But now he doesn't want to borrow it, he wants to keep it. To which I said no, because that would make the games I own for it pretty much useless. And I'm not just going to just give away games that I bought.

Both good albums. There's only one track on Tales I don't really care for (Altair 4) but everything else is magnificent. The Last Candle has quite possibly THE solo from Blind Guardian.

I haven't gotten around to listening to both of them yet but listened to some of Tales From The Twilight World and liked what I heard. Together they were both only $16 too! The place that had them also had two other ones but they were a bit more because they were unopened. I wanna say they were Battalions Of Fear and Somewhere Far Beyond.

Awesome news for Electric Wizard. Mark Greening is officially back in the band.
Granted they still don't have Tim Bagshaw but its still awesome hearing that two of the 3 founding members are in the band.

That is definitely good news. We can now hope for another great album like Dopethrone :)

Got Keys To Ascension by Yes today. But unfortunately it only has one of the two discs in it :/
Then again I picked it up at a Goodwill for $1 so I can't really complain. Though disc 2 has Roundabout, Starship Trooper, Be The One, and That, That Is. Disc 1 has Siberian Khatru, The Revealing Science Of God, America, Onward, and Awaken.

It would be awesome if they made another album like Dopethrone or even Come My Fanatics.
Hell I'd even be okay with an album like Let Us Prey

that and I wish they'd release the lyrics for the songs on aforementioned album....

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.
