Just bought the ophidian trek live dvd by meshuggah. Watched all in one sitting yesterday. Pretty fucking awesome.
Fun Fact: Mick Gordon did the Intro track (not really a track, rather than some creepy ambient noises) "swarmer". And that was 2 years before his Doom soundtrack.

Suffocation, Cattle Decap tomorrow. Forward (Japan), Coke Bust on Friday, Yatra and Bask on Saturday, and Trappist w/ Suppression on Sunday. swimming in shows atm
Coke Bust rules, haven't seen them in a few years but always a treat

Missed them last time they came to Chicago but apparently they played first so most people missed them, lol
 
I wanted to share a couple of videos from the last weekend's show, where the long-planned hook suspension was finally realized. The latter is a new song. I wish we could do the same at Maryland Deathfest next year, but flying two extras there would be too costly, and the venue would have to have fitting structures for it.

That looks very cool man. Way to push your performance!
 
Soen is rather hit and miss for me, I like a couple of songs but not most off of each album, which is kind of rare for me with music because I usually like or dislike an album as absolute.

Been listening to a couple of black metal albums I haven't listened to in a long time, like Master's Hammer. I love the first two albums (the debut, Ritual, being my favourite), but I cannot stand the albums since.

Great band. This has always been my favorite song of theirs. I love how Franta Štorm's voice sounds like it's about break.

Franta Štrom and Master's Hammer are considered one of the pioneers of black metal in Eastern Europe. Or better said behind the iron curtain.

Interesting stuff: Franta is typographer, he wrote numerous books about typography and owns his own type foundry. He created more than 60 different font families.

I remember reading an interview in Fallen Pages III zine back in 1992, where he said he went to art school, and designed the band's artwork. I didn't know about the other things you mentioned.

Here's a photo of the interview:

New One Tail One Head took some spins to really get going but it's a really good solid record.

whoops lol. It’s been a long week!

Also Conception’s new EP is out today and Roy Khan sounds as amazing as ever:

If you only know Khan from Kamelot, Conception is his first and more proggy band. New EP aside their old stuff is amazing.

My favorite Conception song from their second album:

I've been listening to two albums in particular recently. The Ocean's Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic and Azusa's Heavy Yoke. In my opinion, Phanerozoic is leagues better than Pelagial, which was The Ocean's last release. The songwriting is tighter and I can listen to most of the album without getting the urge to skip a song or two. My favourite track on the album:


As for the Azusa album, this is weird to say, but these guys seem like the successors to The Dillinger Escape Plan. The bassist is Liam Wilson who was also the bassist for TDEP, but the vocalist is very intriguing. She was apparently fronting an indie-pop project before this album but her versatility is astonishing. I'm loving this album a lot. One of my favourite tracks is the title track.

Slayer are Slayer. This was like being hit by a bulldozer, even if I was on the tribune.

Too bad that there were sound issues in several songs, like vocals going off at Jihad and sloppy guitar sound at first three songs. This is quite unusual for Wiener Stadthalle, but looks like sound crew miscalculated a bit.

I think that running order should be a bit different, Anthrax and Lamb of God should switch places.

Song of the Day

The song that originally got me into strapping. The ferocity, emotion and that wall of sound that just crushes you is beyond compare. I just love this song so much.


On a related note, if somebody wants to take my biweekly song of the day Saturday’s for themselves, I wouldn’t object. I’ve been busy lately and haven’t been browsing that much era anyways that I completely forgot it last time.

Song of the Day

Day is getting away from me. I tossed this new Sigh on and remembered that I'm on Sunday. Four day weekends make me lose track... So were doing the first track off this new album, Aletheia. The video is as weird as this bands sounds and that is a good thing. I got into them when Graveward came out and I haven't really explored the rest of their discography, but I love what I've heard so far. Check them out if you've never heard them. Their definitely something else.

As awesome as the woodwind guy is...I have to give this one to the Barbie unicorn song for not only using power metal in a fantastic way but also making a video that matches it's insanity lol

Esoctrilihum - Aevendh Sadh


Second album this year from the French one man black metal project, Esoctrilihum, and it stands just as tall if not higher on the list of best albums this year than the first.
