That Cold Embrace song sounds like it was something left on the cutting room floor during The Ritual sessions 20 years ago. The more I listen to this record the stranger it seems. It is really all over the place. On paper it should be my favorite album of their's ever...I loved Demonic w/ Gene on drums, and the rest of the band is the original lineup so that seems like it would be great. Something just didn't fall into place with this one.


I hear what you saying .... its definately not from a lack of trying though.

I plan to listen to it some more... Maybe its a grower or maybe they may need a new producer for the next album (Someone to reign them in song wise). Its hard to say at this point though.

Damn you xevious...

Damn you Xevious... damn you to hell.....

Damn you Xevious be quiet.

So you know EBM? Damn you Xevious...

I listened to Testament's new album while I went for a run yesterday and I couldn't get over how bland the songwriting is. Formation at least had some tasty riffs.

Grave's new one is pretty good so far.

All the complaints Im hearing here about the new Testament are the same complaints my brother had. I thought he was just being picky but these seem to be common issues with the new album. I guess I'll skip it for now.

The more I hear the new Baroness, the more I like it.

Picked up the new Nachtmystium. Haven't heard it all, but I like what I hear so far.

Pretty much a holy grail for Type O Negative fans. I posted a few months ago about how someone paid 700 bucks for a cassette that Peter Steele made for a friend that had some of this stuff on it. Really for fans only as it's just early mixes of October Rust stuff, but still something fans of the band have known about and wanted for a long time. Pretty sure this isn't everything from the early mixes but considering exactly zero things were available from it before, I'm not bitching.

Listening to the new Baroness, I like the Yellow Part but the Green Part is harder for me to enjoy. It just feels to me like this very generic were trying to be cool and almost indie but heavier than indie rock.

Also I have to post this. Yes this is some Devin's less metal stuff, but I laughed my ass off at this one. I also respect Devin because he is that batshit crazy to make a video of him dancing like a retard, and he doesn't give a Fuck.

Just got tickets for the Maiden England tour (Iron Maiden) for Friday. I'm super-psyched. I have never seen them live but I've heard they put on a great show.

This tour is a recreation of their 1988 tour right after 7th Son of a 7th Son came out, and they're playing 100% old material but using modern pyrotechnics and stage design and all that.

Well none of the injuries appear to be ''life threatening'' so that's good. Hope everyone involved a speedy recovery.

Dev's Epicloud is out there now (actual release is on the 18th). Listened to it tonight...there was absolutely no way in hell it was going to live up to my impossible expectations but I did enjoy it. Ki is still my favorite of the Devin Townsend Project records but this is pretty close to Addicted for the #2 spot. To do an ultra-nerdy breakdown it's like 40% Addicted, 30% Deconstruction, 20% Ghost, and 10% Ki. I was sort of expecting what would essentially be Addicted 2 (which is my fault since that was never indicated) so in that regard it was cool to be surprised too. After the kind of disappointing Testament album this was a nice gift.

Wanted to film something for the Lucky Animals video thing they were doing but didn't have time before the 8/31 deadline. Oh well.

I have not listened to Epiclouder yet, which is the 2nd disc which is another complete album of stuff that he didn't 100% finish through the mastering process for the main record.

May drive to Chicago on the 17th to see Dev with Katatonia (who I am not familiar with at all), along with Paradise Lost and some other band. Paradise Lost is a bucket list band for me so I'm going to try my best to make the trip.

Testament & Anthrax at the end of the month. Have never seen Anthrax either. Not a diehard fan...I think I have like two albums and my favorite of those is from the John Bush era, but it'll be cool to see them.

Looks like Hydra Head is shutting it's doors. Sad news, I've enjoyed a majority of the groups they've had on their roster. I hope nobody tries to use the pirating angle on this... It was just a label that specialized in music that was hard to market.

Yea I saw this earlier. Sucks really bad since a lot of their bands ruled.

In other news, Acid Witch's first album, Witchtanic Hellucinations, is being reprinted in October. Awesome slab of Psychedelic Death Metal that currently sells for way too much money.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

Dev put all of Epicloud online for those who care. I wasn't gonna listen till tuesday but I could not resist. It's basically Addicted but less industrial and more just straight up rock, even with some softer notes of Ghost put in. Granted I am a huge Devin fan but still, this album is a statement that commercial, radio friendly music does not only have to not suck, but it can be just so damn catchy too. It's just too bad he wont see any radio airplay which he deserves. God I love this album so much.

Long ass drive to Chicago this morning/afternoon to see Devin/Katatonia/Paradise Lost tonight. Probably won't even have time to stop at Kuma's to eat since we'll be getting there right around doors and my friend has to work the next day so we're coming right back. Still excited to see PD for the first time. If you're into metal, can eat and or drink a lot, and are in Chicago on a trip, check Kuma's out, by the way.

Loving Epicloud more and more each time I hear it.

Death - Spiritual Healing remaster is FINALLY coming out next month. Considering how amazing the remasters for Human, Individual Thought Patterns, and Sound Of Perseverance were not bullshit remasters and an actual from the ground up mastering I am beyond excited. Spiritual Healing is my favorite of them all.

I don't think I've ever heard any of their studio stuff, but I saw them open for Metallica with Lamb of God. They had a ton of energy and acted like they were having a lot of fun, but they sounded pretty awful.

You should go for Gojira, and stay for Devin. They are one of my favorite bands.
