    New Lord Mantis song. Intense, filthy, and disturbing as always.

    It seems they are trying to do more european shows, so you might still get lucky. The concert was great. Will try to see them again, possibly in Russia

    Definitely! I'll be in touch! C93 is on Friday, so I'm thinking if I'm making the trip, maybe try to book something on Saturday. And Dead Can Dance are in Philly the week before. Probably can't afford both trips, but boy would I love to!

    Played a show last night with a couple deathrock/post-punk bands folks here might dig (looking at you, Feytalist): Diavol Strain from Chile https://diavolstrain.bandcamp.com/
    and Jesucrisis (Chilean expat now living in Pittsburgh) https://jesucrisis.bandcamp.com/
    Highly recommended!

    New Alcest is out. It's really really good. I didn't like Kodama all that much, but yeah this is the one I wanted.

    Also apparently the new Lacuna Coil isn't too bad? I am surprised.


    Oh I recently discovered a label called Cryo Chamber - they have a bunch of dark ambient and atmospheric stuff on there and it's absolutely amazing. It's been my background music for the past couple of weeks and I love it.

    I am not sure if it is really metal, but I'm doing my first listen of Pitfalls by Leprous and I think it's great.

    Hell yeah Leprous is the bomb. They are at least tangentially metal thanks to the Ihsahn connection That live video of Contaminate Me with Ihsahn is still one of the coolest things. Haven't heard the new stuff but it's definitely on my list.

    So OM are playing in March, which is awesome since they're the band that got me to reapproach metal as an adult. Playing a good sized indie venue here in Pittsburgh.....with tickets through Ticketmaster, promoted by LiveNation???? That makes me all around sad, particularly since there are plenty of indie promoters who could run it, and plants of other venues with Ticketmaster shows. Stay in your lane! Seriously, this annoys me more than it should.

    Goth news, playing a goth holiday show (with NØIR and Seeming!), so prepared a couple appropriate songs to play. If you want some dark holiday music, this is a free download: https://doorsinthelabyrinth.bandcamp...um/cold-winter

    So I think it's time for albums of the year right?

    The new Officium Triste just hit my radar and it's upsetting all my lists. SO GOOD and SO SAD

    The year started off strong and I think it's ending pretty strong, but not a whole lot happened in the middle, at least for music I tend to follow. Just recently we got the new Wilderun, new Obsequiae, and new Avatarium (bleedin' excellent btw).

    I'd say Devin Townsend's Empath is one of the highlights of the year; I was absolutely blown away by it. The new Alcest was excellent, and this year's Finsterforst and Ereb Altor and Isole was solid as always, and I was pleasantly surprised by the new Soen's Lotus.

    I'd go with Aephanemer's Prokopton and Paladin's Ascension. In less metal things, Nad Sylvan's The Regal Bastard.

    In the field of "worst disappointment", I'd like to nominate Sonata Arctica's Talviyö. I liked the single, although it was really understated, but the whole album is like that, and I'm not OK with it.

    Oh hey I'd totally forgotten about Aephanemer! Yeah I was really pleasantly surprised by Prokopton. It's overall a great record.

    Yesterday was an unusually lucky day for me in music. I listened for the first time to Birth of Violence by Chelsea Wolfe, Love out of Darkness by Quayde LaHüe, In the Raw by Tarja, Empath by Devin Townsend, and Extinction Six by Dialith. I really liked all of them. I found Extinction Six exceptionally good. At first I thought that the singing had been recorded as oddly feeble, but it's actually very evocative, and the singer is good (nice voice and control).

    To be honest, I also enjoy a female-fronted band without a growling dude. Nowadays, it's become increasingly hard to find a symphonic band without some dude jumping out of nowhere and growling all over the place... at intervals. It's something I didn't like about Epica and that I still don't really get about Crimfall and Frozen Crown (in spite of the fact that they do good music). There's too much disconnect between sections of the same song. I think Macbeth did it right in 1998 with Romantic Tragedy's Crescendo by having the guy growl for the whole duration of the album while the woman sang, so that it was homogeneous. Draconian also sing more or less this way. Interestingly, these two are gothic/doom, rather than symphonic, metal bands.

    I also was surprised by how much better and more mature Tarja's album sounds.
