  • There seems to be a big influx of these “post-metal” or “post-something” albums lately. This is a genre that is very difficult to get right. When done well, it can be very good (Sólstafir, Isis, The Ocean, etc), but most of the time it’s boring, pretentious, drone-y rubbish.

    • Steve

      Yeah, this. I’d expand that to more or less every doom metal band that you’ve never heard of reviewed on this site. It all sounds the same and monotonous.

      • Wilhelm

        It’s not even the good doom stuff either, but the boring drone material.

    • Colin Stuart

      Generally agree, though I quite like the embedded track.

      • euthanatos

        man, I really enjoyed that track. Kinda feel guilty about it now.

  • Carlos Marrickvillian

    Envoy of deep sleep

    Why the hell are they in a forest? Seriously now.

    • That’s where the drum kit grows!

        Maybe they’re trying to be more connected with nature and the universe, embracing the solitude. (Not pictured: giant 4×4 with trailer to carry gear, roaring generator to power everything, beer tent selling swill)

      • Botanist’s kit?

    • Diabolus_in_Muzaka

      To answer the age-old question, of course: If a “heavy elevator music” band plays in the forest and nobody hears it, is it still boring?

      • Monsterth Goatom

        Pity the chipmunks.

      When I first saw that photo, it looked to me like they were looking around for the keys that somebody dropped. But then it was, “oh, wait, they’re playing”.

  • Wilhelm

    Some new material that I would like to see reviewed other than all this post-metal/rock/hardcore stuff; Thulcandra, Solefald, Chapel of Disease, Scanner, Keep of Kalessin, Night Demon

    To each their own, but fuck your opinion!
