    Borknagar's new album came out just a few days ago...

    [YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q90kByHUtlQ[/YOUTUBE]

    Really nice album, especially since ICS Vortex is a full-time member again.

    Not impressed by Borknagar's new album. I think Quintessence was their last decent album, and even that one wasn't very good. The three first are damn fine, though. Especially the two first. Amazing!
    But I will see Borknagar in a few days. Can't wait. Was really good the last time I saw them, and that was without Vortex and their keyboardist.

    Didn't see this mentioned in the other thread, but Sigh's new album (In Somniphobia) came out about a month ago..

    Probably their best non-black metal album so far.

    In Somnium is fucking ace. Really switched shit up on us again. I love it when a band does that well.

    The new Borknagar is pretty sweet IMO. It's no ground-breaker, but I keep listening to it.

    In Somniphobia is a masterpiece. Really, really, really great album. It's original, it's catchy, but at the same time hard-listening, and after probably 60-70 spins I still find new elements that I haven't noticed before. And that sax is amazing. God damn!

    And then I was back home from the Inferno festival. Amazing! Lots of fun, plenty of good bands, some shitty bands, and a five day long party. Cannot dislike that.

    Short about how the bands was:

    Inferno started on wednesday, but it was a concert in Oslo the day before so we went there as well. Saw Ghoul-Cult and some of Diskord. Can't remember much of Diskord, but Ghoul-Cult was really good.

    But Inferno:

    Church of Misery, Arcturus and Autopsy won the whole fucking thing. Every single second of each band was superb and couldn't have been much better.
    Execration, Agalloch and Absu was really fucking good too, but nto as good as the three mentioned over. But with Agalloch's long songs you really wish they would have had more than 45 minutes. A little too short for a band like them.
    Borknagar was good, 1349 was OK, nothing more, nothing less.
    Nekromantheon, Tsjuder, Decapitated and what I saw og Witchery and One Tail, One Head was crap.

    But all in all, fucking superb!

    Hearing about John Zorn appearing on that Napalm Death track makes me realize how much I yearn good ol' Jazz-grind. Or perhaps just more intense Jazz Metal that's not noodling Jazzy guitar tones over a distorted bass--I really loved the fuck out of Blackjazz, and there's not really much like it anywhere else.

    Disappointed by the new Napalm Death album. When I saw the cover art to Analysis Paralysis and Utilitarian I immediately thought of old Napalm Death (= their two first albums). But what I got was yet another overproduced death metal album. Man, what a shame.

    Their Ashen Eidolon album is pretty good.

    Ashen Eidolon is damn good. Not as good as Agalloch which it is natural to compare them with, but good anyway. Was looking forward to a new release but they decided to quit Gallowbraid as of now. Such a shame. Had huge potential.

    But on the subject of doom metal, be sure to check out these bands. I guess most of them could be seen as lesser known, hence why I recommend them and not well known stuff like Black Sabbath, Saint Vitus and Pentagram.

    Can you imagine these vocals being sung and growled by a 17 year old norwegian girl back in 95/96?

    That's a few at least. Hope someone find something itneresting there.:)

    I have recently started listening to Inquisition. Their newest album Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm is one of the finest extreme metal albums that I have heard. :)

    Hell yeah! It, along with Ministry's Relapse and Prong's Carved in Stone, have been the only new heavy metal albums that've really caught my attention lately.
    Behind the Sun is my new favorite Meshuggah track because the atmosphere sounds so ethereal. The new Ministry has some insanely fast riff and drum combos and the grooves in Carved in Stone make me think of Cleansing but they are more aggressive this time around.

    I acquired Paracletus by Deathspell Omega and it is very intense. It is the only album that I have heard from the band.

    I like all of the latter-era DsO albums (and some of their traditional BM first albums) but I think the magic really happens with their EPs. Arguably their best songs on them.

    I really like Inquisition's music, so it's such a shame they're going fo that Abbath-parody vocals. Horrible, horrible, horrible vocals (in a bad way) that are the reason I can't listen to the band. Shame, because the music is really good and even rather original.

    Don't get the DsO hype either. I mean, some of their stuff are pretty good (Diabolus Absconditus, Mass Grave Aesthetics, Chaining the Katechon and K?n?se), but I don't get Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice, Fas - Ite, Maledicti, in Ignem Aeternum or Paracletus at all. Boring with capital letters in my ears.
    Haven't heard their albums in a long while, though. Should probably check 'em out again soon. Maybe I'll like them now.


    Btw, nice avatar, Mercyful Fate. Their best album and one of the best albums ever. Lovely! Remember when I bought the CD I coudn't understand what the cover art was. Had to check on the internett, and then it still took me some time to see what it is. Heh...

    Come on.

    I know they have a new album lined up--just fucking release it.

    I really just hope it's more of the first half of Forget Not and less of the rest. That six minutes of pure fucking gold, and really keeps the cheese at bay.

    I'd have to go find it.

    Actual links are pretty rare now, too.

    Seeing it also reminds me how upset I am that they've pretty much disappeared from the world after giving out that EP/DVD. Shit is fucking infuriating; there are a bunch of bands I've been waiting for that will probably, regrettably, never release another song. Shit sucks, yo.
