    Cool. Unfortunately I'm trying to limit the buying of new guitars (saving for an amp) as I have more guitars than I'm using (I really just use one guitar live, and then a backup)

    Yeah, Crimfall are great. Vocals are amazing but the songwriting is pretty great by itself. Helena actually quit the band a while back, before the new album. They got her back though


    In other news; I just found out there's a new Thrawsunblat album coming out tomorrow. Didn't hear anything about this before! This is awesome news.

    Also I just got the new Vreid album. Big fan of the band, and yeah this is a good album.

    Those two are Black Korina, the V has a bog oak top.
    Two other ones I'm currently making are from reclaimed oak, one with oak from old wine barrels as a top.

    I'll post some pics once they get further along, in a week or two.

    So... Exit Eden. I listened to the album today, and I really liked it. It's a lot of mainstream music covers by a metal all-women supergroup. I think that it's far better than what I have heard of e.g. Northern Kings. They didn't choose only songs I like, though, but that's the only minus.

    Nice work, haiduk! And Whoracle, those guitars are awesome, if/when I get cash for a new instrument, I will be in touch!

    I found, in a used record store, Rabbits' Hill, Pt. 2 by Trick or Treat. I had never heard of it, but for $2 it appeared to be a Watership Down concept album (which I am mildly obsessed with and have my own series of tracks inspired by the Black Rabbit of Inlé). As it turns out, it's an Italian power metal Watership Down concept album and I didn't realize how much I needed exactly that in my life. I wish it was a little better though, some of those leads are sloppy AF.

    In geekier and less metal news, I'm on a comp of songs based on stories from the Transformers comics. All newer stories, except my song, because I'm old. Mostly EBM/Electro-industrial, but my track is a bit more maudlin synthpop/goth (of course). This is not the geekiest thing I've done this year. I also did a Final Fantasy 7 cover, and working on a Zelda theme for a fan dub project. Life is awesome. Anyway:

    Eh, better than Northern Kings, but still super generic and bad, IMHO. Just too casting band. They did videos for a lot (all?) of the songs, and all are the same, shot on the same location, no connection to the songs, just so they could show off the girls. The vocal performances are a mixed bag, too, and overall it just reeks of cash grab, not of passion for the source material.

    Take your time, I'm not going to sell outside of driving distance until I know I can get the fretboards to decently playable shape without the customer testing every few days, so at least another 5 guitars or so. Let's call it a year, at the earliest :D

    I don't know if I should think it's great or horrible.... Will check it out though

    edit: I've watched some of their videos. I feel that the music, the lyrics and the videos with text don't match very well. it's almost like the whole idea of using Watership Down came as an afterthought for the videos, rather than being present when the music and lyrics were written

    I'm never great with year end lists, but it seems this year has been a lot of stuff I liked, even liked a lot, but very little that actually blew me away. Except the new Current 93 (The Light Is Leaving Us All), but that's pretty far from metal.

    Man, I really haven't listened to much new metal this year-- not much I can really say was the cream of the crop, anyway. I mean, Mamaleek's new album is pretty phenomenal, but they've excised most of the black metal influence of their older albums, and Andrew WK's new record has skyrocketed to one of my favourite albums in general, but that's also not really metal.

    I guess the new Revocation was alright, though it still suffers from the problem every album they've ever put out has suffered from, which is that it has a couple of really good songs and the rest is just filler.

    Bought 38 new albums this year so far, so I've clearly liked a fair amount (about double that in older/non-2018 albums... seems about general to me).

    For this year, there was definitely some new bands that really impressed me. Of older bands, not a lot were stand-out but many were quite solid, delivering expected quality.

    My favourites in no real order:

    Firtan - Okeanos: German melodic black metal. Amazing album; the band sounds a bit like Mondstille, another firm favourite of mine. Definitely worth a listen.

    Summoning - With Doom We Come: a continuation of Old Mornings Dawn, and everything I've hoped for. Top-tier Summoning.

    Sinistro - Sangue Cassia: Sort of gothy doom metal, I've been keeping my eye on them since Semente. Amazing vocals and I'm sure they're gonna do great things.

    Messa - Feast For Water: jazzy doom metal with great vocals. Another band I'm keeping my eye on.

    Prag 83 - Fragments of Silence: kinda dark folk / neo-folk? Not really metal but it's a great, fairly unknown band. Smooth music and effortless vocals. I've listened to this probably more than anything else this year.

    Witch Mountain - Witch Mountain: Man... I didn't expect this, but this one might be my favourite album of theirs yet. Loved the band with Uta, and I'm loving it with Kayla. Proper old school bluesy doom.

    Elvellon - Until Dawn: surprisingly good power metal.. they sound a bit like old-school Nightwish and that's not a bad thing.
    Awesome fremetar by wxdruid.

    From the discomfort of truth there is only one refuge and that is ignorance. I do not need to be comfortable, and I will not take refuge. I demand to *know*.

    Because apparently Watership Down metal is now my niche, here's another: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JfyKxSMFUNI
    Proggier, but striving for more rock than metal, so the weaknesses are less obvious. They're not reaching for the harmonized power metal solos that Trick or Treat are, but that means they're not flubbing them either. That said, doesn't hit the same emotional depth. The Trick or Treat song where Hazel meets the Black Rabbit of Inlé? Makes me cry every damn time.

    Probably Auri, Beastland, Return of the Cosmic Men, and Queen of Time were the albums from this year that I will remember the most.

    Return of the Cosmic Men is the happiest metal I have ever heard since Sonata Arctica's cover of Still Loving You, and it's actually well made. There are some points where rhymes and assonance completely overtake the songs (Up to the sun / Where love shines bright / The soul of human kind / Diamond in the open skies / Still we are free / So proud to be / Alive in harmony / We've found our way to live in a shining unity) and you expect things to devolve into "she's as nice as apple pie", but it's undeniably exhilarating. Uh oh, that's actually from 2017.

    Beastland by Master & Punisher is industrial metal. I can't understand a word, but I really like it, and it's evident that there is a lot beneath the sounds at an intellectual level. Later, it turned out that the author is actually an engineer and sculptor that makes his own machines and equipment. http://www.tristanshone.com/portfolio/trachea-quad-mic/

    Auri and Queen of Time are albums that IMO offer a bit too much of the same. I am not fully convinced that Queen of Time is better than Under the Red Cloud, and the songs sound less distinguishable in Queen of Time to me. It is, however, still an undeniably good album. Auri is memorable even just for the first song (The Space Between). I don't think it's really metal, but Holopainen calls it celestial metal, so whatevs.

    I had been turned away from Elvellon by descriptions of them as a Nightwish clone, but they objectively aren't that. They don't even try to imitate Holopainen's bombastic approach. I like Until Dawn.

    The Blind leading the Blind by 1914 is also good, albeit somewhat too full of materials that aren't part of the songs.

    I only could listen to the Psalter Of The Royal Dragon Court once, but it sounded very good.

    No End of Year list from me, but progress on the guitars. I didn't have the time to work on them until last week, but now they're being oiled up. I expect them to be finished before New Year's Eve.

    And this one is for the customer. He plays in a Pirate Metal Band (The Privateer, and thus it's a bit more rustic :)
    If the first one is to his liking I'll build another one for the second guitarist and a bass in the same style as well.

    It must be pretty cool, seeing the stuff you made used on the stage!


    Has anyone heard of Ayreon? I have listened to The Source and 01011001, they're some great metal operas, featuring a lot of different artists, among which Floor Jansen.

    Also, any opinion on the Ferrymen?

    Yes, great band. My favorite is the Universal Migrator album

    Also, any opinion on the Ferrymen?
    I have to admit that while they are good, they just don't write songs that I find interesting. all the parts are there, but the sum of it is still kind of bland

    Yeah I know Ayreon - Arjen is a great musician but I think I like his other projects more... specifically The Gentle Storm with Anneke van Giersbergen.

    For metal operas I stay with Avantasia


    As for Elvellon... yeah, the Nightwish description probably isn't fair, but I was definitely thinking more Angels Fall First era, back when they were more understated.


    Meanwhile I'm hooked (again) on Samsara Blues Experiment - a German psychedelic/stoner band that honestly blows my brain. Of all the recent "retro" bands, they are one that just seems so... authentic. Dunno what it is but I really like it.

    Awesome fremetar by wxdruid.

    Multiple friends and other sources recommended the Mongolian metal band The Hu to me recently. They have two songs on their YouTube channel. I was not disappointed.

    I like Yuve Yuve Yu a bit more than Wolf Totem.

    If you like The Hu, definitely check out Tennger Cavalry! And Whoracle, that grain on Violet is astounding! What a beautiful piece of wood!

    I went to a "best of 2018 goth/industrial" club night last weekend, and they played one of my songs! I'm sure in part because I'm a local guy, but still very flattering! People were dancing and it was neat! On a more metal note, next week I'm opening up for a new local doom outfit, On Love and Sublimation https://onloveandsublimation.bandcamp.com/ I love opening for bands that are much heavier than me!

    Oh, and got Iron Maiden tickets for this summer, so I can check that one off the bucket list!

    Oh hey, those two aren't bad, thanks!

    And for something a bit heavier there's also Stoned Jesus

    Oh yeah they popped up on my YT recommendations a while back... not bad at all. I'm interested to see if they go any heavier, but I like the folky bits.
