[Editor’s Note: Karhu has questionable opinions about things.]

Let’s not pretend we’re all friendly and you came here to chat. Cut to the chase and get to the music.

I don’t know anything about Omnia Malis Est except they play a quite clean branch of blackened metal. And sing in Italian, or possibly latin or Spanish, I can’t tell these languages from each other ’cause they all seem and sound exactly the same. But I have heard worse songs, today even, and I think you should maybe give this a chance. Or not it’s your call. Viteliu is out now.


There’s some Brazilian dudes collectively known as Rage Darkness here playing some dark prog metal for all of yins. I am digging this even though Engine of Misanthropy was supposed to be released a week ago and it’s still on pre-order over at their bandcamp page. There are elements of modern death metal meeting acoustic passages, but mostly I think the prog stamp is there because the band doesn’t really sit into any single category (rather than adventures in the jungles of compositional complexity and odd rhythms or time signatures).


More progressive metal for all of your listening pleasure. Orakle is a french unit signed to Apathia Records and this album is pretty nice if you’re one of the persons who happen to like it. A little bit of prog with some electronic avant-garden and some experimental black metal. So best described as a French band. But don’t let me keep you any longer from being pleased by this and get on it. You especially Stockhausen.


This here is some super good melodic doom metal. Obsequiae are a band obsessed with medieval things, folk melodies and such. Their roots may lie in black metal and I hear the influence of doom seeping in and the use of harp contemplates on the beauty if their songs. Occasionally bleak, sometimes sombre, Aria of Vernal Tombs best releases I’ve heard recently.


Satanath Records are releasing Corpse Garden’s Entheogenic on May 15th (so it’s already out!). It’s a furious death metal record if these preview songs are to be believed (physical release only, wimps). Death metal is a genre hard to excel in, especially if you’re not aping Swedeath. Corpse Garden aren’t and frankly I wasn’t gonna care about their songs. But then dat bass came in… Well, it’s right at home here creating an eerie and sinister vibe over their otherwise very ripping material. I think you should listen to this album right now.


Between The Buried And Me has a new video out for “The Coma Machine”. If you like gimmick prog you will probably like this song as well. And by gimmick prog, I mean the prog is the gimmick. Even though BTBAM is a band of talented people and their songwriting abilities can be heard they still opt to write weedly and deedly creations of multiple parts rather than anything I’d really enjoy but they have been getting better lately and I do like prog usually so maybe we’ll be getting over our problems in the foreseeable future. In the meanwhile you can see the video below, it’s less gimmick-y than before.


Secrets of The Sky are releasing Pathway on May 19th and you can stream it in full by stabbing here. What it basically is is progressive doom with an occasional blackened edge but fans of post-metal will feel at home with the atmospheric play as well. I mean if Neurosis or Isis were ever your thing and melodies don’t give you a rash, this could appear on your end of the year list. This is a flooring release and probably the one you should pay attention to if you are willing to check out only one release here. It’s a little more dynamic than their debut, which compliments the talents of vocalist Garret Gazay very well. Don’t Miss This.

ADDITIONALLY

  • Pyrrhon, who Edward interviewed recently, have put two more songs streaming from their upcoming EP, Growth Without End. You can listen to “The Mass” and “Cancer Mantra” over at their Bandcamp.
  • Lamb of God have premiered “Still Echoes” from their upcoming album VII: Sturm Und Drang. It sounds like LoG, one of their better songs I guess, but nothing to excited over. Maybe you shouldn’t take my word for it, there’s a rumour, you see, that I am not exactly a person renowned for liking things.
  • Check out these Old Man Gloom tour dates you American man.
  • Terror put out a new song. Sound Terrorible, as expected. [Editor’s Note: This fuckin’ guy.]
  • The Cradle is about to get Filthy again, check a new song here (NSFW)
  • Mastodont’s Brann the Tailor has a new band called Arcadea. They make some sort of arcade music centering around electronic music and keyboard nerdiness of Core Atoms (seriously?) and Raheem Amlani. The song “Gas Giant” has a video.
  • Pentagram’s old rehearsal of an old song is getting released on the worst of mediums (but a really cool series, so conflicted) the Flexi-disc. “Bang It Out” here in anticipation of Curious Volume, their upcoming full-length that will see them return to “heavy”.
  • Ken Mode has a new song, “Management Control“, out. It will be released through Success on June 16th.
  • Primitive Man has a new video for “Loathe“. (NSFW)
  • Burzum released a “lost” track from the Belus sessions. Check it here
  • Fuck The Facts/Fistfuck Split is finally out and the former will release a new full-length Desire Will Rot in August. Stream FTF here and Fistfuck here.
  • Alcomahole is getting fucking expensive.

      • ME GROG

        GORAK & GUNGA SHARE CAVE WITH GROG!!!!

        • Awww, you’re all caveman and cavewoman friends! 😀

          Hi, Grog!!

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Hi Link, I came here looking for someone who would have enjoyed that new Cradle Of Filth song too. I’m assuming (and hoping) that you would be that person?

    • CyberneticOrganism
      • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

        It’s also a really tasty Scottish coffee.

  • Dagon

    I will soon check all this music out, and I know this is not the right post for it but fuck it. I was delivering babies.

    The new Valkyrie dropped today and so did Tau Cross. Both available on the Fy.

    Today >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

      Thx by the way for the Valkyrie tip a few weeks ago…been diggin it today!

      • Dagon

        I’m on the second song right now. I won’t be able to pay much attention right now but I like what I’m hearing.

        Hope it doesn’t get old quick like Crypt Sermon did. I think it won’t.

        • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

          first listen I thought…this is a tad slow. second listen I thought fuck that guitar sounds great and this is kick ass…

          • Dagon

            Valkyrie guitars are awesome. Check the older releases when you’re done with the newest.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            doneski and many thanks…what is this Crypt Sermon you speak of?

          • Dagon

            It’s Candlemass worship but has a little of its own flavor. At first I loved it but then I kinda grew bored of it. I’ll try to revisit soon to see what happens.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            ok I love doom but never could get over the hump on Candlemass…toooooo slooooow and the vocals bugged me.

          • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

            Still the best doom band ever known to mankind.

          • Dagon
          • CyberneticOrganism
          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Is that a clip from the third season of GLEE where they did the doom show? (Fast doom, not slow doom!)

          • Dagon

            Definitely not my go-to doom as well.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            yea thats what u meant to say!

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Too slow. Do you even doom?

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            not correctly it would appear!

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            In-fucking-deed.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            i prefer my doom with a little groove: sabbath, electric wizzard, orchid, elder, kyuss, om, ufommammut to name a few. Or what I percive to be heavy as fuck: bongripper etc. but I ackowledge my head may be far up my ass…

          • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)
          • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)
          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            I realize how silly that sounds…allow me to clarifiy: As much as I love doom, Candlemass is one of the dooms bands in my opinion that seem to develop songs much to slowly for my liking. O and the vocals suck..fast or slow.

        • “Hope it doesn’t get old quick like Crypt Sermon did”.

          I thought I was the only one D:

    • The Beargod

      Have yet to listen to the Tau Cross. Exceot the preview songs. Dat Valkyrie was lame tho.

      • Dagon

        Can you remember the last time both of us liked the same thing?

        • The Beargod

          Ufomammut?

          • Dagon

            Probably. Same scores for Apostate and Weedeater too.

          • The Beargod

            You like Dopethrone? I know you thought it was better thab WE but did you really like it?

          • Dagon

            Yeah, but I still have to listen to it again.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            What is a Ufomammut (apart from the band)?

          • The Beargod

            Big, hairy and flies fucking fast. Also red.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      Dat Tau Cross>>>>>>>>>>

  • Tyree

    In other metal news, Sodom drops out of MDF.

    • Stanley

      Has a replacement been announced?

      • Tyree

        I think it’s Solstice.

        • We got an upgrade!

          • Tyree

            I’d have to disagree.

          • Phoenix of the House Tendies

            I like Solstice a lot, but better than Sodom? Nah.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            ill upvote this

        • The Florida death metal band?

          • Tyree

            Yup.

      • The Beargod

        Yes… Solstice… I think.

  • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

    Omnia Malis Est definitely sing italian. Not much for me here unfortunately (FUCK PROG), that Lamb of God isn’t that special in my opinion.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    My jimmies are so fucked up by your thoughts about BTBAM. I can’t even explain how wrong I think they are.

    • Stanley

      I hate to say it, but the time has come for me to step off the BTBAM bus. It’s been a good ride though.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Never even got on. Satan.

        • Me neither, their music is too busy for me.

    • The W.

      Have you now been angry 7 times in your life?

    • I like BTBAM but he is 100% on the money

    • stocky and i stand with.

      • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

        Jimmy plz!

    • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

      They’re decent, but something’s missing that I can’t quite put my finger on. And the vocals sound sorta emo-y to me.

  • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

    I’m significantly surprised by how much I liked Cradle of Filths new song. Seems like the musicianship is taking a step up.

    • Guacamole Jim

      I’m almost scared to listen.. but if The Commenter Who Was God recommends it, I might give it a go. I hate Cradle of Filth with a fiery passion that burns in my loins.

      • I think they’re the most popular divisive band ever, jajajaja.

      • The Beargod

        It sounds like CoF, 100%, but Skorupka is still a nice drummer.

        • The new band members helped too with the songwriting, to me it was interesting this song, because Manticore and Other Horrors was very bland.

          • The Beargod

            There’s maybe two CoF songs I don’t dislike. So I’m kinda intrigued to check them out every time they change personnel.

          • Stanley

            So which two do you like?

          • The Beargod

            The Death of Love, Lilith Immaculate and Huge Onyx Wings… that’s actually three. Catchy gorhic metal without Dani’s worst shit. They’re okay.

          • Stanley

            Ahh, I thought you were going to go all kvlt on me and name two off The Principle of Evil Made Flesh.

          • The Beargod

            Nah Dani was annoying as hell and the it feels like the musicians forgot how the songs went before they get to a point where they feel it’s good place to stop. Once upon a time I played all their albums from recommendation. They were a bad kvlt band and are now a semi-decent mnstrm band.

          • This was my fav from Manticore and Other Horrors. Liked that punkish rhythm:
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgEArezaYtI

          • Stanley

            Pretty accurate assessment. I play Lord Abortion and Cthulhu Dawn every now and again, mostly because they are fun to play on guitar.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            I’ll jam Dusk & Her Embrace until I die

          • I liked more their middle era, to be honest. Midian, Nymphetamine and Damnation and a Day were my jams in high school 😛

          • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

            Do you like Old Man’s Child? A good bit of COF’s personnel left and joined them. Way better IMHO.

          • The Beargod

            I’ve liked some albums. Better than CoF certainly.

      • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

        Then you probably still won’t like it. It’s the same CoF style they had before, it just doesn’t seem as tired or by the numbers as their recent efforts have felt.

        • Guacamole Jim

          It’s actually better than any other Cradle song I’ve ever heard. I still can’t stand Danny Filth (or whatever), but the drummer was kicking some ass.

          • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

            The drummer has some serious chops that’s for sure. I’ll definitely be picking up this album.

          • Guacamole Jim

            I’m actually kinda disappointed. If the rest of the album is up to this standard, I’m not going to be able to make fun of my guitar player for liking them 🙁

          • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

            Does he like other poser groups? Like 5FDP? Then you can make fun of him for that like people make fun of me for it.

          • Guacamole Jim

            YOU LIKE 5FDP?? KILL IT WITH FIRE!!!!

            But for real though, I’m the last person who should be criticizing musical taste. I don’t think he’s into them as far as I know. Mostly he just loves metal generally, with a penchant for the nu-metal of his childhood and some other bad stuff thrown in there. We have an interesting writing dynamic going on, as I pushed him to get better at music outside the box, and he pushed me to stop caring so much about technicality and more about feel.

          • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

            I do indeed enjoy 5FDP. It’s something I can turn my brain off too and just enjoy some pure aggression. It’s great for when I’m working out.

          • Guacamole Jim

            That’s totally fair. I do love music that I can just rage to, without having to think. We’re all just monkeys anyway.

          • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

            I listen to Yakety Sax when I need to rage out during a workout.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8mUMSi5M8g

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            You think that’s bad? I like the band Issues.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            Janitor plz

          • Ahmed Johnson The Reef Eater

            They were good live.

          • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)
          • Yup, Marthus is a very good drummer. I’m waiting for this record.

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            That show was terrible and I was in their demographic when it was out too. What was it called again?

          • StudmanGetYourPull666_69

            Dinosaurs.
            Haha I loved it as a kid, and that joke still gets me laughing in an infantile way. Welcome to the world of the easily amused.

      • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

        I hate their music (all of it), but damn if their live show isn’t one of the most visual spectacles I’ve ever seen live!

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        The song is good. The drum cam showing the drummers goofy facial expressions are not (or are). Can drum tho

    • I like Cradle of Filth older albums, they were my entry to extreme merol and I still spin them sometimes.

      But, let me tell you. This song, to me, is very very good.

      • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

        I’d wear a cradle of filth shirt if one existed without graphic nudity on it, some religious slur with expletives, or without Danny’s ugly mug on it. Sadly, none exist like that.

        • Geez, I still despise that Nun shirt…

          I still like CoF, but those stunts are very lame. I stick with the music and the overall gothic teenage image.

          • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

            I just hate edgy tshirts. Just give me one with the album art and the band logo or even just the band logo and I’m happy.

          • That last incident with the New Zealand expo was very lame.

            But, well, stick it to the music!

          • The Beargod

            I’m mostly the same. My all time favorite (band) T is just the logo
            (It’s Oranssi Pazuzu so the logo is v cool doe.)

          • Actiondonkey

            Cruelty Brought Thee Orchids was my wake-up alarm for much of high school. I mark Damnation and a Day as the start of their rapid decline, though Nymphetamine had some redeeming tracks. I’d like to see them release some new quality material, but I have reservations that they’ll put out another solid album and even more doubtful Dani’s voice could hold up live.

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        You do like it :)))))))

        • Jajajaja!! 😛 I’m waiting for the record is coming in July!

  • Dagon

    Speaking of Terror… who remembers Booty Smell Good Doe?

    NSFW: https://vimeo.com/26609360

    • Still not sure why this exists.

      • Dagon

        I don’t know why. It’s Nick Jett’s rap gimmick. I did think BSGD was a bit funny at first and I still watch the video every 6 months or so out of boredom.

        He has a song called “Let’s Fuck” or whatever with Bonnie Rotten in the video that is extremely cringeworthy and waaaaaay worse than this. Seriously.

    • Guacamole Jim

      wat

    • CyberneticOrganism

      No.

  • Guacamole Jim

    Mmmmmmmmmmm Primitive Man.

  • Colors, from BTBAM, is the album that I like most. The Great Misdirect was hit and miss to me. I still like them, don’t get me wrong, but they’re really one of those prog bands that make frankensongs.

    So, I have to agree with Beargod.

    This is the prototype of a BTBAM song these days:

    https://miacono.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/frankenstein.jpg

    They’re very very good, but sometimes I would like to just hear a song and not a complete barrage of pieces stitched with jazz interludes.

    That remembered me of a friend bashing Atheist. He told me that they have the ‘pieces syndrome’ like BTAM.

    • Hubert

      Colors has that problem, Parallax II a lot less. Check that one out Link.

      • Yeah, Colors have that syndrome, but I don’t know why I like so much that record. It’s probably because was one of those first extreme proggresive stuff that I listened.

        Also, Viridian and the last segment of White Walls compensate alll the birúdilis.

        I still need to check Parallax, you’re right, Hubert!

        • Hubert

          Parallax II is a journey across the galaxy, seriously great stuff. Colors is like a walk to the fridge in comparison.

      • The Beargod

        Is Parallax I the EP? That’s my favorite BTBAM and pretty much the only one so far I actually dig.

    • Dagon

      That’s why Atheist never clicked for me. And I’ve tried.

      • Unquestionable Presence is a great album, but it gives me headaches.

        Still like Elements. But it’s not a record that I spin that much.

        • Hubert

          I tried playing Unquestionable Prescence on guitar. I’ll get there.

          Eventually.

        • hey everybody, Atheist’s Jupiter is rill gud…

      • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)
    • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

      That’s why we have Native Construct, my friend.

      • Heeeey, that one is in my list! 😀

        • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

          Getting my questions together for them and should have that done and to them by Thursday or Friday. If you got anything you’d like to ask them, feel free to let me know.

          • You can ask how was the process to record the album. The song they published for preview was very layered and cool sounding. They still remind me of Karnivool, but, still they have their own voice, I think 🙂

          • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

            Send the question to me at geistimsturm@gmail.com so I don’t forget about it.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          Take it off your list and into your library

    • Alaska was and always will be their best offering IMO.

  • Hubert

    I heard a song from that obsequiae, loved it dearly. Going to give that album a listen. New LoG sounds like LoG. LoG were one of the first really heavy bands that I digged so they have a place in my (cold, frostbitten) heart, but this song doesn’t do much for me.

    • TheRedman(formerly God ov All)

      Funny story, I first got into lamb of god like 8 years ago because I thought they were a Christian group. I was wrong…

      Good thing their name fooled my parents so I could listen to them while my parents still had an iron grip on the media I consumed.

      • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

        Their name actually made me think the exact opposite. Also, they started off as Burn the Priest iirc, then they changed that after their debut album.

      • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

        I listened to them 8 years ago and HATED it, considering them a 3rd rate Pantera clone. They’ve thankfully grown into their own, and much better, sound.

  • Hubert

    That Pyrrhon song sounds like a train colliding with my face. <3 u Pyrrhon

  • Stanley

    I’ll be getting Obsequiae when it’s released. The last one was very good.

  • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

    And Evile’s ex guitarist (Ol Drake) has some new audio samples out.

    It is in these hills that Juan Valdez and his trusty goat go to pick beans every morning.

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

    I’m waving my boner around in celebration of this new Secrets of the Sky album. Can’t say passers-by appreciate it though.

    • i love it!

      • Lilo’s Penis Tornado (KJU)

        His boner?

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          Jimmy McNaughty

  • Those new Pyhrron tracks are killer. Can’t wait to hear the rest.

  • Stockhausen

    New BTBAM and new Pyrrhon. I like when things I like are.

    conflicted) the Flexi-disc’ god flexi-discs suck balls

    I kinda get what you mean about BTBAM. It’s not a naturally progressive riff into the next, it’s usually like “here’s this part!”, then “now here’s this!”, then quiet break, “now this!”. It’s like a bunch of little songs thrown together instead of having a thread connecting them all. In this way it’s almost like prog deconstructed, or proggy vignettes.

      They’re not bad by any means, but it does lack flow and making part A meet point B. It’s more like making part Z meet point G, and G meets part M.

    The Rage Darkness track was fairly pleasant till that “singer” opened his mouth. *ugh* what a letdown.
