    You could start listening now and by Monday morning you still wouldn't have gotten through the whole catalog!

    Also, what's going on, we're back to Nu Metal now, Earache? Should I get my tracksuit and wallet chain out and unpack all my facial piercings?



    Still, these guys are at least weird in a fun way.

    The -core scene spent a lot of the 2010s rehabilitating the image of nu metal. The elements had been slowly working their way back - a jumpdafuckup riff here, a rap verse there - with varying degrees of success until sometime around 2017 when everyone simultaneously decided to go full JNCO-core. As someone who has some nostalgia for that era, I don’t mind it; the nu metal revival bands tend to have more of the unhinged aggression the original bands lacked, and while the “fuck the world and also fuck my parents” attitude is still present to an extent, the lyrics are generally more articulate and slightly less embarrassing than the late 90s/early 2000s bands.

    Some bands (like the one quoted) are making fun throwback material that’s better than the music it references, some are using nu metal trappings to push in interesting new directions (see: Vein), and a thousand nondescript self-important -core bands are now “what if Deftones but boring?”

    Modern times are weird.

    The new Martin Grech album is pretty dope, it's largely ambient/synth based stuff, but he includes a lot of heavy guitars in there too as he has on earlier works. I think fans of Porcupine Tree and Radiohead would dig him.

    Nu Metal's biggest sin was the entire genre had the attention of the world and it felt like all the bands decided to be Limp Bizkit, Incubus, or some kind of half assed industrial.

    Korn's first album was a legitimate landmark kind of thing, most notably because that kind of raw emotional release at the expense of slick production and repeatable sing-songy-choruses was verboten as fuck. Even Nirvana didn't break into mainstream success until their album got a gallon of modern production varnish dumped over their sound.

    I got a weird underlying 'knowingly ironic' vibe from this, and that snare sound, oof. Everytime I loop around to nu nu-metal, I come away disappointed, and I should just stay with Deftones when I want something in that vein.

    Nu metal never dies. Nu metal is eternal. Nu metal is the stained blanket that always welcomes you home.

    Nu metal? More like NO metal, am I right folks?

    (I do genuinely enjoy Korn's first album, although it's been years since I listened to it)

    So long as WWE wrestlers need walk-in music, nu-metal will have a niche to fill.

    Speaking of the nu-revival, apparently Sevendust is still around:

    Also, I don't like double posting, but has anyone else been following David Davidson's (Revocation) grunge side project Gargoyl (speaking of throwback style music)?

    His clean vocals have a real Layne Staley thing going on, and it's actually not bad:

    Apparently Sevendust is continuing their tradition of only writing one chorus and still not being able to find a song it fits in.

    Here's In Flames' re-recording of "Only for the Weak"


    I'll stick with the original.

    Anaal Nathrakh has come full circle, from not publishing lyrics to releasing a lyric video


    It's a fun track, big melodeath vibes throughout. New album sounds like one of the more inspired ones since Black Widow.

    New Cadaver EP too, sounds pretty damn good, Jeff Walker features in at least one track and you can kind of tell, it resembles modern Carcass a bit.

    Gotta admit that I'm not feeling the new Ayreon based on the songs they've released so far. Here's the third. featuring Simone Simons:

  • SteevLSteevL What can I do for you? Registered User regular
    Since I'm not on Facebook for the time being, I'm slightly less in touch with releases by bands that I followed on there, so I was surprised to get a few emails from bandcamp this morning with new releases from a few bands. It's another one of those Bandcamp Fridays where all proceeds go directly to the artists.

    First up is the ever-prolific Haunt with their third release of the year called Triumph! I gave it a listen off the site and thought "OK, this sounds like a song they've done before..." and then I realized it's just their two EPs combined into one album, so it's not technically a new release. Since I already have one of these EPs, I think I'll not be buying it.

    Zeal & Ardor has a preorder for a new EP up called Wake of a Nation. It appears that there is an obvious theme around certain current events with this one.

    Two Minutes to Late Night's got another release of covers available for sale for today only. I bought it for their cover of "Running Down a Dream".

    Another great death metal EP from Maggot Stomp records. UNURNMENT. Knuckle dragging caveman grooves.



    Also I was listening to that new s/t Oceans of Slumber album and I'm just so undecided on the band. On the one hand they do have a fairly unique style that doesn't quite mimic the Euro beauty & the beast Gothic/symphonic metal types, which is welcome. On the other, a lot of the tunes just sound like wannabe Disney theme songs or Celine Dion with power chords...they often try to mold everything around her voice so much that the rest of the band loses any distinction and suffers. That said, I don't hate it, the production is pretty good, but I'm just still not aboard the hype train...or hype boat, in this case.

    Finally checked out Deviloof, a visual kei deathcore band out of Japan.

    Not too shabby, little weird.



    Fan of the aesthetic and the crazy squealing/screeching the singer does, nice fat grooves.

    Really enjoying the new Toehider album, which I suppose is metal-adjacent.

    He also did two livestream performances yesterday to promote it:


    edit: ah, he plays a song from the new Ayreon in the second set at 5:57:09 too, cool.

    This is an excellent EP from an unsigned act, thrashy, exciting German death metal with a bit of a melodic edge to it, always catchy on every damn song, lead, everything.

    This record slays too, one of several projects put out by this Italian musician on I, Voidhanger records. But this is my fave from him so far...just killer, dynamic atmospheric death metal circa Morbid Angel, Incantation, Autopsy, etc. If we posted this one already please forgive me.

    New Whoredom Rife EP is two tracks of excellent Norse black metal, and they've put together a video of old war footage to go along with it. Grim.

    The new Panzerfaust is definitely going to be one of my top black metal releases of the year.

    Popped up on my YouTube feed: Vintersea. Name sounds like a parody, music is some pretty great blackened progressive death/whatever. Lush clean vocal harmonies alternating with some nicely dynamic growls and shrieks.

    Slow, doomy, simplistic, dope atmospheric death metal from Brazil. These guys have been decent for years, this might be taking it to the next level.



    And here's the polar opposite, some tech death out on The Artisan Era with just enough weirdness!

    New Skeletal Remains is very solid, but not quite as good as the last. The latest Ihsahn EP, meanwhile, is more of a progressive pop/rock thing, hardly any metal on there, but still pretty catchy. Matches up alright with the new Ulver.

    slightly strange question, but i had not realised the song "sleeping satellite" was very much a uk phenomenon - for those from outside the uk do you remember that song from the early 90s?

    The new Night album is pretty great, that's also releasing this weekend, can't wait for my CD, I think it's their best yet.
