    New HAIDUK album - Exomancer (2018). Dark melodic black metal.

    “A nightmarish journey that reveals one chilling, hallucinatory vision after another.”
    -No Clean Singing

    “Laced with intricate diversions into an almost hypnotic, tremolo-world of ever undulating riff patterns.”
    -Worship Metal

    "[Haiduk] has perfected his own signature style and very few bands are doing this style."
    -Metal-Rules

    “Haiduk has written, recorded and produced an epic album in ‘Exomancer’. The sound quality is great and it has character, which is difficult to find.”
    -This Noise Is Ours

    “Sinister, spiralling, atonal and dark, ‘Exomancer’ is going to be an underrated gem from 2018.”

    So, there's a new Within Temptation album out, and... it's not super great.


    Also new Gloryhammer album coming out. That ought to be good. Or at least... amazingly cheesy

    Yeah they're a pretty big deal (also one of the only bands who seem to collab with other, non-metal artists), but then these symphonic bands always have fans who are way more over the top than normal, don't they.

    I think its because they like the fantasy of the metal undergroudn but haven't really been shown a way to access it beyond symphonic metal. Symphonic metal operates so seperate from the rest of the metal-verse that it's kind of hard to navigate. I do think about this a lot though with Prophecy - I'd love to win over some of those fans into some of our more bombastic and accessible acts.

    maybe dip into the fans of blind guardian or symphony x? as those are both very heavy and still epic

    ....I feel called out.

    Seriously though, my favorites are a blend of clean and dirty vocals, and if I had to specify, maybe about a 70:30 ratio clean to dirty (and there are exceptions, of course, there are no bad genres of music except crunkcore).

    Speaking of, I'm going to see Thou on 4/1, I assume you folks are all over them, but they're new on me. Touring with Emma Ruth Rundle (who I'll confess is the reason I'm going). Also, in honor of his North American Era 1 tour (which I am unfortunately not going to be able to see), Mortiis has a ton of stuff for free download on bandcamp. The free ones start at The Song of a Long Forgotten Ghost and go down from there. Much of the Era 1 stuff (though sadly not Crypt of the Wizard, which is a favorite of mine), lots of Vond (download SELVMORD now!) and Fata Morgana. Not the one Era 2 record (Smell of Rain, recommended if you're into synthpop/futurepop), but the Era 3 metal albums, plus the remixes. And if you're there, and you like the Era 1 dungeon synth stuff, spend a couple bucks and grab The Unravelling Mind (a lost film score he did in 2006) and dear god is it amazing!
    https://downloadmusic.mortiis.com/music

    And less metal, my new EP is out https://doorsinthelabyrinth.bandcamp.com/album/restless Bits of darkwave, bits of postpunk, bits of ambient, kinda all over the place but (I think) flows pretty well as a solid piece.

    Yeah, tell me about it. I want to play at Keep it True, which is the best festival I've been to. But, being not the greatest of singers, I do about half of the vocals in a more growling style. And therefore we aren't "old school" enough, even though even Manilla Road has used that style of vocals.

    Big fan of Emma Ruth Rundle... I'm jealous.

    Also I'm totally checking out that Mortiis stuff - except I'm sure I already own most of it Smell of Rain is a firm favourite of mine.

    I'm listening to Isis (Oceanic and Panopticon), I like them. I don't think I have ever listened to post-metal before.

    In power metal news, there is a new Rhapsody of Fire album out today. Also, I have been listening to Thornbridge (Theatrical Masterpiece).

    I find borh the Rhapsody of Fire and Luca Turillis Rhapsody to be a bit disappointing. Hoping that Turilli / Lione Rhapsody turns out better

    well, the history goes like this:
    1. Original Rhapsody (guitarist is main composer and lyricist, keyboard player secondary composer and orchestral arranger)
    2. Changed to Rhapsody of Fire because of legal dispute with some online music store or something
    3. won the legal dispute, went back to Rhapsody
    4. split up into Luca Turillis Rhapsody (with the guitar player) and Rhapsody of Fire (With the original singer and keyboard player)
    5. Rhapsody reunion with everyone except the keyboard player to celebrate 20 aniversary
    6. Rhapsody (without keyboard player) decided to record new songs under the name Turilli / Lione Rhapsody, disbanding Luca Turillis Rhapsody. Rhapsody of Fire continued with the keyboard player as only original member

    (yeah, I was a big fan when I was younger)

    he's a co-funding member, together with the guitar player. so he had half of the rights to the original band. it doesn't help that the guitar player actually trained classical piano before guitar, and wants to do the studio keyboards himself (not when they had a keyboard player, just on his other projects)

    Guys - I don't know if everyone has been sleeping on this as I have, but Soen's new album is utterly amazing. I stumbled across it by accident and now I can't get enough. This is properly impressive prog.

    Yup, I have been listening to it during the last few days. It's really good.

    Hmm... it's fairly similar to their previous album - you know, the broken rhythms and the same vocals and whatnot - but I'd say it's better in just about every way. It's the same type of modern prog like Need or Junius or Caligula's Horse, so if that's not your thing then fair enough.

    I'd say, check out the first half of this song and it should give you an idea for the whole album.

    Isis were amazing. Oceanic in particular was one of the albums that got me listening to more metal.

    I'd say, check out the first half of this song and it should give you an idea for the whole album.
    This hits me where I live. I think I'll need to give the full album a listen!

    So I listened to the Soen album. When it's good, it's great. But most of the album felt kinda forgettable. Not bad, but felt like it wasn't living up to the potential. Picked another on Spotify, and Tellurian was much better! Dug it, and I'll check out more, but I felt the new one could be better.

    On a prog note, I saw Jon Anderson on Sunday, and he's still amazing. Mix of his new solo album and Yes stuff (with a Jon & Vangelis song thrown in!!!!), ended the set with Starship Trooper, which is a fantastic ending.

    By the way, having listened to Avantasia's Moonglow for a couple of months, I think it's a great album, if you are into the genre.

    I get the impression that Avantasia tries to be something inbetween Ayreon and Magnum. You should check them out
    check out my metal band: http://www.facebook.com/Dreamslain
