I actually get a kick out of Heetseeker's posts, it's funny, every time I mention a band he produces the leak. It's uncanny. *cough*GODS AND QUEENS*cough*
Seriously, I'm sure the dude means well.
And TS is right, the new Napalm Death absolutely destroys. They're on quite a roll. New Kreator is friggin' unreal as well, I think I like it more than Enemy of God, which I really dug. I have a boatload of 09 releases already (including a potential 09 metal EOY contender which I'm not allowed to divulge quite yet), but I never have any time in December to listen to all of them.
And holy crap, the new Trap Them is a mighty fine way to cap off 08. I loved their one from 07, but this one is better. Kurt Ballou strikes again.
Seeing Lamb of God/The Sword tomorrow, I got the new Opeth dvd, and I interviewed Rob Halford today. So it's shaping up to be a nice metal weekend.
Ha ha. I was kinda on the same page with his ability to track down albums..... I'd be curious to see whose ignore list I'm on, actually. Fuckers
On that note, any chance we can track down;
Silentist - S/T
Tough to find, but worth it. Our local Piano/Thrash heroes. Worth a listen, as you've never heard anything like it. http://www.myspace.com/silentist
Glassjaw - Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Silence
(my favorite Emo/Metal album of all time. Sorta Deftones-y, but not exactly. Paved the way for the likes of Protest the Hero or From a Second Story Window)
Oxbow - An Evil Heat
(Their "metal album")
Time of Orchids - Sarcast While
(One of the Tzadik metal-ish offerings. Prog nerds will love this. Basically Kayo Dot - Dowsing Anemone With Copper Tongue)
Postman Syndrome - Terraforming
(I actually own this album, but I'm lazy and I don't want to bring it in and rip it in order to upload... Hadn't listened to it in years this time around I was blown away by how good it actually is. Probably on of the first true Indie Metal crossover acts. Overall vibe reminds me a bit of Maudlin of the Well meets The Apex Theory <Soundscape>)
Speaking of spamming links...... Here are a couple.
- I wouldn't say I love this album, but it came out of my art metal phase where I downloaded everything Metal on Tzadik. Features (who else) Mike Patton
Time of Orchids - Namesake Caution
This is effectively Kayo Dot - Blue Lambency Downward
