Huh. Wintersun put out a new album? Guess i'd waited so long that I forgot.

Anyone heard it yet? I'll get a copy when I'm in town on Monday, though it seems like AMG and others are a bit underwhelmed if the reviews are anything to go by.

Had a brief listen yesterday. Will have another listen but I never really saw what the fuss was about Wintersun. Too many power metal elements for it to properly grip me.

So - probably the wrong person to comment :D

Well this took me by surprise a bit.

Motorhead does Bowie, and does a dam fine job of it.

A few singles from old black metal names this year:

Satyricon:

They continue being Dad Black Metal. Still sounds fun, though.

Enslaved:

The Viking lads continue to get proggier.

Samael:

They might be on to something this time. Getting back to sounding epic.

Been a year or so. Guess it's time to try bashing my head against Above and Lux Mundi again. :-k

Not a bad effort, glad they're returning more to their previous vibe. The single doesn't really have an amazing hook at any point though.

Some more:


Yeah, it's not exactly their "poppiest" sound, but they've at least convinced me to give the full album a try.

Holy crap. The new Perturbator is damn good. Wonderfully dark and heavy at spots. Vocal track is a bit rubbish, though.

I'm just mad because the option to buy the CD isn't working yet.

Wow. This album is incredible. That bass drop in Tactical Precision Disarray is dirty as hell.

I really like that all my favourite synthwave artists are starting to move away from the more 80s inspired sounds to newer, far darker ones. Mega Drive did a fantastic album this year that experiments a lot more with his style too.

I like the vocal track too.

Sounds right up my alley, though the lyrics might need some unpacking. :-k
