These last couple weeks have been pretty crazy for this Angry Metal Guy.Â I’ve moved south from the fair city of UmeÃ¥, to the much bigger (and arguably fairer) city of Uppsala.Â While I miss Norrland, I do have to say that I’m quite enjoying certain aspects of the student culture in the city of Uppsala.Â Â I haven’t had a lot of music time, but here’s some of what I’ve been listening to in the last week.
Weekly suggestion: Guilt Machine – On This Perfect Day — Yeah, this record was seriously solid and I strongly suggest you pick it up.
The Black Dahlia Murder – Deflorate — Oh, this is good.Â I wasn’t super impressed with Nocturnal, so I’m pleased.Â Watch for a review coming soon.
Gwyllion – The Edge of All I Know â€” Definitely heard better, but a pretty alright record.Â Good vocals.
Insomnium – Across the Dark â€” Watch for this review.Â Out on the 7th of September in Europe.
Isis – Wavering Radiant â€” These guys are ridiculously overrated.
Havok – Burn â€” See the review.Â Great fucking riffs.
Amorphis – Skyforger â€” Best album of 2009?Â So far.
Anaal Nathrakh – The Constellation of the Black Widow â€” \m/
Propagandhi – Supporting Caste â€” It ain’t the glory days, but these guys are still the smartest political band around.
Marduk – Rom 5:12 â€” I’m getting psyched for the new record, are you?
Falkenbach – Ok Nefna Tysvar Ty â€” Excellent viking/folk metal record.. addictive melodies.
The Dear Hunter – Act III: Life and Death â€” Excellent.
Amon Amarth – Live in Bochum 30/12/08 â€” Seriously, worth buying the reissue for this live record.
