Only just getting into Big Brave. What a record.


#222

Been listening to Calligram recently Blackened Hardcore from London kind of reminds me a bit of Pine Barrens and Young and In The Way, new album out this month here’s what I think is probably going to be the single.


#223

Listened to this today after seeing it on the AOTM thread. Love it


#224

Think it was @LastAstronaut top pick


#225

Man I’ve been wondering what album this was after I saw it in the best artwork thread! Thought it might appeal to me on that alone, so cheers!


#226

It was. It’s worth checking out the other Mass albums if you like this one.

I saw them live at Damnation a few years ago, vocalist with his back to the audience, no stage lighting just a dark back projection, very intense!

(not a great photo unfortunately)


#227

AmenRa are a ridiculously good live band. Saw them at Temples festival (RIP) in Bristol a few years back, the sound system was monstrous and to be honest they were probably the highlight of the day for me (Neurosis headlined).


#228

I was a bit disappointed by this. Au de La is much better imo.


#229

I have been enjoying stuff like this recently:

Nice old school hardcore sound to it, but doesn’t sound stale or dated.


#230

Really enjoying this although it seems as though the band have a somewhat complex history. Here’s another track from the album


#231

aww shit Mike Patton is doing Irony is a Dead Scene in full with DEP


#232

yeah, I like that one too, although not as much as “The Sprilaing Void” I do like the use of Flute though, lol.


#233

what are folk’s thoughts on Thrice Woven (latest WITTR album)?
I’ve only listened a couple of times and it made very little impression on me. Am I missing something?


#234

I’ve warmed to it a bit but I feel it’s probably their weakest album overall. The production is pretty lacking which doesnt help.


#235

was initially unimpressed but I would have said that at least the neurosis guy’s yokel wisdom poem left an impression on me!
(I’ve kinda come round to since it too, maybe it’s worth revisiting?)


#236

anyone heard the new electric wizard album with the inexcusably terrible cover?


#237

That’s probably the worst bit for me but probably the best song otherwise! Love when the opening double kick bit gives way to the half time melody.


#238

I really like it, not their best by any means but I still think there are some very strong moments on it, opener Born of a Serpent’s Eye and closer Fires Roar in the Palace of the Moon I think are great. I’m just really pleased to have them back. I’m really looking forward to finally seeing them live in December too!


#239

the ploughs are charmed!


#240

oh my word, i would love to see that
