    BTBAM - Colors II - 8/20/21

    I may be in the minority here, but I think Tommy's growls are very unique. Definitely prefer them to 95% of deathcore shit and find them to be much less monotonous than that. I also think he's the master of double tracking unclean vocals. Colors II slaps. Fucking love it. Better with each listen.

    New Structures EP

    I have a complicated relationship with this band. One one hand, these guys had one of the most memorable EPs in early 2010s djent/metalcore catalog. I probably listened to it a few hundred times fall of 2011 while studying at college. On the other, they rode that wave into a pretty lame debut LP...

    Daft Punk calling it quits

    *watches Epilogue* why tf am I crying so hard rn That was amazing. Seriously though. Way to go out with class. Most of their discography is amazing and they have some truly timeless masterpieces. I'm bumping Random Access Memories yesterday and today in memory and will be working my way back...

    Have your tastes for tone changed over the years and if so, how?

    A few years ago I was into the saturated rhythm/pristine clean dichotomy as popularized by early 2010s djent/prog metal. Now I prefer my cleans slightly dirtier and my rhythms slightly less saturated. Part of it is realizing the importance of dynamic range and getting bored with djeneric stuff...

    Mateus Asato taking a break from music

    Check him out. Amazing playing. Even more amazing hair.

    What are your timeless albums?

    +1 for Mouth of Swords. TSF was criminally underrated. For me it's: Between the Buried and Me - The Great Misdirect (they perfected the balance from Colors, which feels clunky and fluff-filled in comparison. Fight me.) The Receiving End of Sirens - Between the Heart and the Synapse (probably...

    Could anyone recommend me some dark albums?

    Neurosis - Through Silver in Blood Pretty much the most evil album out there. I usually can't listen to more than a few tracks.

    Schecter Basses: Stiletto Studio vs Hellraiser Extreme vs Apocalypse

    I can't speak to the other ones, but I've had the non-fanned Stiletto Studio 5 for more than 10 years now and haven't had any reason to get another bass. It's a very versatile instrument. I keep mine tuned to C# standard (G# C# F# B E) and it sounds pretty clear even on the low string. I imagine...

    BTBAM: Alaska remix/remaster

    It’s like listening to a whole new album. The riffs in Roboturner crush so hard.

    New Cloudkicker album "Solitude" released today

    It might be my favorite album of his so far, and that means a lot since I basically thought Subsume could never be beatem. 94 Days is one of the coolest songs he's ever done, but the whole thing is all killer no filler; I mean, even the technical "filler" is pretty killer. Agreed that it's...

    Songs You Like With Ridiculously Long Titles

    Haha, came here to post this.

    Songs you like with some lyrics that make you cringe

    Lol, very true. It's like Jonathan was baked reading about quantum physics on Wikipedia one night and the next day wrote down random words that he remembered. I'm 90% positive this song/album inspired the lyrics in this gem:

    Music like Casualties of Cool?

    I know I'm not the only one who absolutely loves this album. I think it's one of the coolest things Devin has done and I come back to it quite frequently. Are there any other bands or albums with a similar kind of progressive/folk/bluegrass/ambient/experimental sound?

    Suggest some Japanese rock/metal bands (similar to Loudness, Anthem)

    They're more post-hardcore/melodic hardcore with a heavy netalcore tinge, but Fact were the shit. Their self-titled album has some of the best production I've ever heard in that genre and the songs slap hard. Really catchy vocals and some badass riffs. BRB, gonna go listen to them on loop

    New Intronaut in the Works

    It's been a few months with the album and I have a some revised thoughts. Rant/nitpicking ahead. The songs as a whole are excellent. But, this may be my least favorite Intronaut album, which I hate to say. The main reason is that the mix feels way too clean and basically neutered. I'm frankly...

    Protest the Hero new album Palimpsest out June 19

    He actually didn't have surgery, just coaching. In the couple interviews I've heard with him on the subject, due to aging he just couldn't sing with the same techniques he had used in the past, and after a lot of coaching on techniques to get his range back where it used to be, this new timbre...

    Protest the Hero new album Palimpsest out June 19

    Having listened to the album a few dozen times at this point, I can confidently say my earlier fears were inaccurate. This album brought a new freshness to the PTH sound while improving on everything I love about their writing. Lyrically and vocally it's Rody's best work hands down. The...
