    Hey everyone!

    I've been away from guitar and music in general for a while, but I've found the time and the interest these days to possibly get back into it.

    It's pretty simple: what's everyone listening to these days? What good music has come out in the last 3-4 years? I guess I'm looking for more riff-oriented music, but anything you think is good is welcome.

    It's been a few years since I've last been active on these forums, and a couple more that I haven't played guitar seriously. As such, I've disconnected quite a bit from the community. Given what's going on right now and the fact that I live in a pretty small apartment, I've taken to reading more things online. Frankly, I really miss this site, the people here, and the kinds of discussions I get to read and occasionally participate in. I dusted off my Carvin again a couple days ago and felt good re-learn a lot of things I'd forgotten. Thus my interest to see what's going on in ERG word these days. :)

    I have regressed to just like mid 90s and early 00s death metal only and listening to ambient or Aphex Twin or Haircuts for Men the rest of the time

    I somehow have gone into the hole listening to a lot of Django or Django sounding things. Either that or I'm in the mood to hear Infant Annhilator, there's no in between and luckily my girlfriend actually likes both or I suspect she may be a little sick of it, haha.

    The Armed - wierd mix of black metal, electronic, industrial, and early post-hardcore, plus Ben Koller played drums on the newest album
    Red House Painters - especially the album Songs For a Blue Guitar. Not sure if I'd call it doom with folk vibes or folk with doom vibes. Other stuff varies between slowcore, shoegaze, and folk.
    Dead In The Dirt - like Nails but better and without the toxic attitude.
    And lastly the new Daughters album. If ya don't know already then you need to know soon.

    Not what you're looking for but I'm getting into xenharmonic stuff. This is so far one of the better tracks I've found where the harmony is clearly not normal, but it sounds perfectly good with sensible chord progressions and melody:



    Other than that I haven't ventured much beyond my usual djent and prog metal stuff. The only new stuff I've gotten into is by Plini, Stephen Taranto, and David Maxim Micic.

    In my truck CD changer right now is 1-TBDM-Ritual 2-TBDM-Nocturnal 3-Nile-Ithyphallic 4-TBDM-Abysmal 5-Ray Cash 6-Jim Jones

    I just took TBDM-Verminous out after listening since I got the pre order. Giving it a break and I’m back on my rotation but I’ll come back to it. I’ve got some Bloodbath, Deftones, The Haunted, At the Gates and Hendrix in the center console. Waiting for Six Feet Under-Undead to show up in the mail.

    As far as newer bands, I’m not sure if they came out within the last 3 or 4 years but Creeping Death, Witch Vomit and Gravecreeper are newer and definitely worth checking out. Earth Rot is another but “Follow the Black Smoke” I know was from 2014.

    Me? Every time i die, from indian lakes, cloudkicker, tbdm, holy fawn, whores, comeback kid, mors principium est, nevermore. Havent done a ton of new music listening lately. A buddy and his buddy put out a sweet drone/ambient ep last week, I think I made a thread here.

    I have my 10 year old son at home with me at the moment, so I have no clue what I’m listening to half of the time!!!

    For guitar inspiration I’m back on classic Satriani and Vai albums. They’re what inspired me to take guitar seriously in the first place, so it’s a good place to start on lockdown.

    I’m also finding myself listening to a lot of pop-country??!?!?! It’s just as bad as mainstream radio pop, but it at least has guitars!

    Axis of Advance, Meliah Rage, Dim Mak, Joy Division, Human Remains, Solvent Cobalt, Gerry Mulligan, Rippikoulu, Unholy, The Isley Brothers, SAMO, Admiral Angry, Rowsdower, Will Haven and a bunch of dusty 90s/early 2000s hiphop... basically a lot of (mostly old) death/black/trash/doom/goth rock and a little bit of funk and hiphop, but I got a big box set of classical music I've started digging through recently too - Mahler, Ligeti, Shostakovich, Bach, Wagner, Brahms, Strauss, Debussy etc etc.
