massive thanks to @UncleRetrospective for the tip off about the new Astronoid album - absolutely loving it. I feel like they’ve gone even more Jimmy Eat World (with blastbeats) on this one, but also still very Mew (with blastbeats). just loads of fun and quite lovely in parts.


#62

This sounds very interesting. Thanks for flagging the tip from @UncleRetrospective. Thinking there could be many boxes ticked here.

I’m off to listen.


#63

I listened to the first single but it just sounded so bland to me - like all the aethereal lushness had been stripped away leaving something pretty generic. So I hope the rest makes up for it, or it makes more sense in sequence or something.


#64

hmm dunno i think you either like it or you don’t - i think it’s a really fun/‘nice’ take on the black metal genre, it’s just a very niche oddity that i find really enjoyable. it’s very much just a continuation of the last album, i wouldn’t say there was a huge amount of depth to it on the whole, and there’s not a huge amount to be gained from listening to the whole album over one song imo.


#65

the 23m EP he put out at the end of January is also brilliant;


#66

Thing is I really liked the first album but the single I heard didn’t really seem to have much of what I had enjoyed before - if it’s basically the same then I’m in!


#67

god that trailer looks terrible. I mean, it was never gonna be much cop but that looks so worse.

Will watch it of course


#68

That album is terrible. Keep reading how its a breath of fresh air for hardcore and everything…but it was just rubbish.

i don’t really have a problem with this though seeing as aged 37 i’m probably not the target market for fresh hardcore :smiley:


#69

I’m very excited about the Behemoth WITTR & At the Gates tonight. Killer line up


#70

I have read the N word used in reference to it. That unspeakable term “Nu Metal”. Maybe enough time has passed for this to be OK again.

I always prefer this kind of thing live rather than on record, same applies to bands like Code Orange.


#71

Looks like a lot more sex than actually happened.


#72

Yea that’s fair - probably will be better live.

Code Orange are just Nu-Metal that’s a fact :wink:

Nu metal does seem to be coming back. Its gotta be better than any other revival (if you take away the rampant misogyny and big shorts)


#73

This is weird but awesome

Whole album is streaming on Invisible Oranges


#74

Diving headlong into Gojira has been great. Caught between wishing I’d got into them sooner and enjoying having so much to explore.

Worth seeing live later in the year?


#75

The new Saor album has been released a week early and it’s a bit bloody good.


#76

Yeah Gojira are good, go for it


#77

Icelandic progressive blackened death. A bit like I imagine Opeth might be had they gone in another direction instead of dropping the growls!


#78

back, Back, BACK!!!

First Wildhearts album in 10 years released in May. Here’s the first release…


#79

Really digging this so far. Getting big Botch/Converge vibes… never a bad thing


#80

Good work. Glad you’re digging and with you on the Converge vibes. Never got into Botch, but perhaps I need to!
