    New Oceano - Ascendants



    The whole album sounds really dystopian, though Depths will always be their best, to me.

    New Lorna Shore - Psalms



    Black metal/deathcore hybrid, now more in the black metal direction than on "Maleficium".

    New Black Tongue - The Unconquerable Dark



    They too seem to be experimenting with black metal.

    Overall, bands (at least in deathcore) are moving towards a more atmospheric direction, putting in more black metal elements. Aaaand... The interest in heavy music is dwindling, even further than before. The quality is also taking a huge drop, even compared to 2010's. Metal is on life support now. The fire is almost completely out, and what's remaining are the last few embers that are faintly emitting heat. It'll all grind to a halt.

    wat

    Everyone who likes old .... is still playing it, who cares what the hipster kids are doing?

    Hair metal is almost the new blues due to a lot of guys who grew up with EVH and .... being older now. It's starting to become considered "classic rock" at this point - even Metallica.

    Just my subjective feelings. Yeah, the old bands are still playing it, Metallica and such are still making lots of money, people still care for Cannibal Corpse, but I feel like the new bands are doing pretty bad and the interest in them is minuscule.

    Well think about it though--usually a genre can't really span much more than a decade without mutating pretty freakishly. We had a solid 15 years of primo death metal--I'd say that's a pretty good run! The interest in death metal is dwindling, sure. But I think it's being replaced by interest in other kinds of heavy stuff. Yeah, that heavy stuff isn't like the heavy stuff that we like, but the notion that "interest in heavy music is dwindling" can't be right. With the advent of internet as the primary source of music/ finding new music, I'd say that more than in the past will we see people being drawn to heavy music. Just, not oldskool Gorguts and stuff.

    +1.

    IMHO, technical/progressive death metal is really huge right now. I really love what all these ultra technical/progressive bands are bringing to the death metal table. I'll always love old school Death and Cannibal corpse but the stuff Beyond Creation, Necrophagist (was doing, LOL!!!) and Obscura are doing is just freaking incredible!!! :metal:

    I've been listening to more "primitive" music lately. Slipknot, Mudvayne (LD 50), Down, Pantera, Tool, CoC etc. Honestly it's refreshing. It's musically more simplistic and not as "good" as the newer stuff everyone listens too, but as soon as you hear (sic) you say "damn where did the emotion in metal go?"

    I just have these cycles where I will jam the same 3-5 albums nonstop for a month straight, then move on to another 3-5 albums (usually with one straggler from the previous month), then keep going.

    Some albums I listen to nonstop every now and then, and it helps me define which are my favorites or "classics" in my personal listening.

    I think this is all mainly just because I listen to a lot of music at work.
