    So the new Myrath album is out, and it's actually really pretty good. Not a lot of Middle-Eastern flavoured metal out there, and they're doing it really well. It's not super heavy, but great melodies.

    Also, if anyone else follows them, the new Rodrigo y Gabriela album has also been released. Love these guys. Their guitarwork is without peer.


    Also I've been listening to the new Devin Townsend for the past couple of days. It really is excellent. Don't care too much for the weirder bits (I'm pretty sure there's like, cat noises or something in the background at some point) but the actually music is as good at always.

    Thank you for the advice, I do like Ayreon, so I'll have to try out Magnum.

    Today is a power metal day. Paladin released Ascension, and Pythia released The Solace of Ancient Earth. I had fun listening to both of them. And a few weeks ago Qantice released The Anastoria, also nice to listen to.

    The first impression is that Ascension is really good.

    Pythia is still around? Good for them!

    So uh - anyone see the Prophecy Fest lineup? I'm putting it on. Y'all should come.

    Good work on this! That lineup is amazing, and as a Mortiis fanboy, that seems like the best way to see him! I don't think I can swing the trip, but I want to try!

    Not metal, but my early nomination for favorite album of the year is Nodding God's "Play Wooden Child". Bubbling anxiety-inducing synths, and processed nightmare vocals in Akkadian by David Tibet (Current 93). Definitely in not-for-everyone territory, but I have been obsessed with it.

    Next week I'm opening for the Clay People (industrial metal from the 90s). Not sure if there will be much of a crowd, but there should be. They haven't been here in 20 years!

    It's been quote a while since I last posted here, so I'm not sure how cheesy y'all like your metal, but the new Gloryhammer came out today, and I've been loving it.

    Missed this one earlier. I have to disagree. I've followed Myrath for quite a while, and for me, their new album was disappointing. Much more generic metal than before, and weaker guitar.

    A friend just clued me in to Dead to a Dying World (they're playing here in July). Amazing stuff! New record on Profound Lore, which I'm realizing I should just go through their catalogue, since everything I've heard that they've released, I've loved. Not metal, but dälek's Asphalt for Eden is a stunning record

    That Dalek record is insane. Really love it. DtaDW is also one I dig.

    Was that really 3 years ago? That show was a blast, and hopefully we will cross paths again soon!

    Not going to name names, but venting about terrible local band practices:
    - 2 touring, 2 locals on the bill. If you are local, don't show up at door time, after everyone else is set up and sound checked so you "have to" go last.
    - if you do that on accident, listen to the other bands
    - also, don't tell your fans to show up late. I have no evidence that you were all in the downstairs bar, but it was a coincidence that all your crowd arrived at once
    - if you're gonna be that much of a prima donna, the gaps of silence between your songs probably shouldn't be as long as your songs.
    - also, maybe don't make disparaging comments about the touring bands' tone, because you might not understand what they're going for. Might make you seem like you know less than you are talking about.

    Sure, maybe I'm being just as unprofessional about venting, but boy those guys pissed me off so much I don't think I gave their set a fair listen. Touring bands were awesome though, and I was happy with my set.

    .
    I don't know how it is other places, but here it's common to do sound checks in opposite order, so that the headliner has first sound check, and the warmup the last.

    His vocals were a part of why Angra's early stuff is some of the only power metal I can dig. RIP indeed.

    So the new Baroness album is finally out, and... it's really kinda disappointing. Even after Purple I kinda help out hope that it was gonna be something like their earlier stuff, or even Yellow&Green which I actually quite liked, but nah, it's just... bland. Kinda a shame.


    Also the new Slough Feg album is out and it's... weird. But good weird. Like 70s weird. Scalzi has a unique voice and it's not really everyone's cup of tea, but I really quite like it.

    Some bands I discovered yesterday: Dream Tröll, Caligula, and Arctic Sleep. I liked DT and AS, I can't say I get Caligula. Also Kryptos, a heavy metal Indian band. Very nice.
