Strange song, but it's doing something for me at the moment.

Heard Lorn on the Furi soundtrack but never really explored his material properly. Acid Rain featured on an E3 game trailer and now I've delved in deep. Lay in bed last night for about an hour just listening to two of his albums in the dark. Amazing stuff.

Was listening to some Lorn the other day. Good stuff!

Also, finally got my hands on the new Igorrr album.

Might as well just call it right now. Best of 2017.

Been listening to Static-X, of all things. Hell of a nostalgia trip!

Also just discovering Wayne Static's solo album that he put out not long before he passed. It sounds like a soundtrack for a Vehicle Combat game from the late 90s. Sounds like a single Fear Factory riff stretched out over 3 minutes with faux Korn-vocals.



It's "bad", but I gotta admit that some stripped down nu-industrial groove is hitting the spot. :lol:

Queen of the Stone Age's latest from the upcoming album. Not bad but a little QOtSA generic if I'm honest.

Luckily for you guys, I'll have to stop talking about Neurotech. Dude is putting the project to rest and released the final album.

Goes without saying that It's pretty damn good at appealing to my taste in metal-ish futurepop. :)

My favourite of the year so far - Wormwood - Ghostlands - Wounds From a Bleeding Earth, features everything that I love. Will need to go some not to be my AOTY.

Not that deep into the full album stream, but... holy crap. :shock:

Grabbing a copy as soon as I can!

I have had it on a virtually constant loop since I bought it - it just keeps getting better the more I listen. Spectacular album.

I dropped them a note on FB asking if they have any plans to play the UK - sadly not although they would love to do so - I need to see them live, might have to book a flight to Sweden :D

Was in the mood for some old school Death Metal. So why not go for some of the oldest school?

Death - Scream Bloody Gore



30 years old and it still totally crushes.

Picked up Leprosy as well. The album, not the disease.



Hearing a bit of thrash influence. Which is cool, as I can appreciate a wild solo now and then. Still straight up murders a whole lot of modern Death Metal.

Also, some more thoughts on Wormwood.
I'm not entirely sure about the dip into folksiness around the middle of the album. Silverdimmans Återsken I can get behind, but the next two tracks almost feel like the wandered over from another album, probably something Finnish. :-k
Still damn good, despite not personally feeling the tonal shift and finding the second half in general to be a bit weaker.

Ah, see now I love the shift into folksiness, I think those are some of the strongest elements of the album.

I agree through that the second half is weaker, although repeated listens have made me appreciate it more than I did initially (my first reaction was "Oh where did all the good stuff go?").

Still a belter though, even the weaker stuff still pushes my buttons.

Someone mentioned spending a summer listening to SepticFlesh and Enigma. Did some investigation.



This is some medical grade new age chill. That synth pan-pipe shit kicks off and I'm totally into it.
Could do without the monks, though. :-k
