Rolling Heavy Music Thread 2018

There’s a hell of a lot of stoner/doom that feels like it exists purely to rake in the vinyl cash these days. Last years Electric Wizard album being a prime contender. Sleep definitely sound like they actually give a shit though so fair play to 'em.


#243

Fans of the proggier/more epic side of doom would do well to check out the new King Goat album FFO: Khemmis, Pallbearer (newer stuff) Nightfall era Candlemass. The vocalist is fantastic. https://kinggoat.bandcamp.com/


#244

YES! Bloody Mammals are finally releasing their album:


#245

Haven’t seen the latest Pallbearer track posted in here (apologies if it was):

Hate to be the “I prefer their old stuff” guy but I, uhh… do.


#246

i love that mbv bit.

i love everything theyve ever done tho.

by their old stuff dyou mean you didnt like heartless either? cause that is insane.


#247

Nah I did like it! But I meant just that - prefer their older stuff. Sorrow and Extinction is my fave.


#248

oh, phew…

think theyve made three :star::star::star::star::star: records.

when the electric guitars came in the first time i heard foreigner i was like oh ok.


#249

new the armed record is good. ben koller drums for them on it. like wild throne/daughters type blown out poppy experimental gubbins.


#250

Saw converge, crowbar and thou on wed night in Manchester. Converge were immense. Crowbar were great too. Wasn’t overly keen on thou tbh


#251

I was there!


#252

Boom! Surprise new Thou album:

Haven’t heard it yet. But what better way to spend a lovely Spring morning?

They supposedly have another 4 releases lined up for this year, including an acoustic album. I assume someone is fucking with me on that last part.


#253

By contrast, Thou almost stole the show for me, love a bit of rumbling discordant doom.


#254

Thought they were good at what they do and the riffs were really good but something didn’t quite click with me. A lot of people like them so maybe its just me!


#255

I think its the vocals I cant get into. I’ve got a similar thing with The Body - there’s a lot about there music I like but vocals don’t do anything for me.


#256

This is excellent!


#257

:heart: :heart: :heart: The “tortured fraggle” vocals from The Body :heart: :heart: :heart:


#258

I’ve always described Chip as sounding like a permanently startled rooster but tortured fraggle is pretty on the money.


#259

this album is utterly ridiculous in the best possible way :grin:


#260

they’re mint. started out as a pretty straight hardcore band except they had a dude who played clarinet solos.


#261

Listening to this album (and band) for the first time now. Seems like it might be some crazy, chaotic genius. Thanks.
