Where is the best place to start with Dir En Grey?

if you think youd like their heavier stuff, try marrow of a bone first. if youd like to try more of a rock sound first, try Vulgar. and if youd like a to try a visual-kei (Japanese version of glam) band that dabbles in lots of different styles, try Gauze

I'd just like to extemporaneously state that Origin's Antithesis is still ass-kickingly good. That, Hate Eternal, Neuraxis, Landmine Marathon, Coffins, Kataklysm, and Beneath the Massacre have all made for a pretty darn strong year for death metal.

I'll echo your take on the Origin & Neuraxis ::...happy sigh...::

Destroy Erase Improve (RELOADED) will force me to vote in the reissues poll. [Further to TS's earlier characterization,] I was curious to read any buzz about it tonight, wondering if I'm the only one who thinks it's great.

:lol: Validation. :lol:

Finally got the new Amon Amarth... this is great. it's like super bombastic death metal without the death metal technicality.... the vocals sound HUGE, and a bit black because of all the reverb.. it's sort of like Disfear, only more death-y and less Motorhead. And the lyrics are so wonderfully over-the-top.. and surprisingly actually understandable. hey, random question, what's a good blackened death metal album? an area I haven't really checked out yet (unless Abysmal Dawn counts)

LIGHT THIS CITY

Posted Image

anyone familiar with these guys?
nothing groundbreaking, but worth a listen if youre getting bored with sludgy shit, as i am.

synopsis:
bayarea thrashers heavily influenced by european metal (ATG, carcass, and the usual suspects).

have only heard a couple tracks, but sounded pretty solid..biggest challenge for me is the female harsh vox,
but they go down much easier than say Walls of Jericho..

Yup, I've been following them for a few years. They're quite a good thrash/death band, and Laura Nichol is one helluva screamer. Weirdly, they announced their split over the summer, with their new album slated to come out in November, so it put Prosthetic Records in an awkward situation. The new one's good, but I think I prefer their last one, which has been so conveniently posted above by our kindly resident link genie.

How coincidental. I spun that very album last night. Loud. It's really good, and energetic, but there are some slight issues with it. The visual styling of the album is so 1992 (though I guess that fits with the brutal DM/post-grindcore sound they're going for), and the vocals are wack. First and last songs, though, are nothing to eff with. Supremely good tracks, and it's something of a relief for me to listen to such no-nonsense metal.

I mentioned to someone that I didn't think I'd heard a proper metal album this year. Well this is that, and it is satisfactory indeed.

Yeah, I think the throwback cover art mirrors the album's unapologetic throwback to early 90's pure death a la Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse. These guys also remind me a bit of Cryptopsy and Cephalic Carnage. Anyhow, it's pretty good but I guess hyper technical death isn't really my bag. Which is fine.

My main problem with it is its proximity (temporally, sonically and label-ly) to the last Pig Destroyer album, which is far superior in almost every category. Apart from use of the high strings in riffs. Origin love their crazy-fast scale-riffs.
