Tech Death Thursday: Narada

Prepare to have your facial flesh vaporized!

This post is going to be a little different in that I hadn’t even heard of Narada until I stumbled upon them about ten minutes ago (shut up I know what I’m talking about here). However, I am digging the ever loving fuck out of these Russians and, as such, felt compelled to write about them. Right off the bat this band impressed the shit out of me. Perfect production (not too clean or too dirty), impressive instrumentation, riffs for days and great vocals have me sitting here wondering where the hell these guys came from. If you took parts of Behemoth, Origin, and Deeds of flesh and baked a cake with a little Nile sprinkled on top, this is what you would get:

This actually reminds me of the post from few days ago about Cryptopsy’s None So Vile.  Specifically, the part about writing songs that are technical without sounding wanky or sacrificing song structure. There are some super sweet riffs on this album too, like the one in the intro of “Chikkhai Bardo” (U Wot?). I really don’t know where these guys came from (insert snide MSD remark here), but I’m glad they have risen from the depths of whatever hole they were hiding in to bring us Dead Waters. It seems these guys aren’t signed either. @Unique Leader Records, something tells me you guys are aware of these posts. Sign these dudes, thank me later. They only have 66 likes on Facebook. This must be rectified.

 

Now we have a guest submission from Nordling Rites ov Karhu, here’s what he has to say:

The song is “Autistic Savant” by a band called De Lirium’s Order.

This might not be my favorite song by De Lirium’s Order, but it is maybe the most popular. Their brand of metal is a Finnish mix of technical death metal and melodies with a little thrash on the side. It is really worthy of your time.

 

That’s good shit man, thanks for the submission!
Until next time,
Stay Tech

    Yay, technical music! Tech death is like prog rock as both are really complex and you either like them or you hate them.

    • Weird because I kinda sorta sometimes maybe like tech death to a small-ish degree.

      • Leif Bearikson

        CONFIRMED: Masterlord loves Archspire

        • Stockhausen

          His words!

        • He likes Rapid Elemental Dissolve.

  • Gurp

    Suffocation, Internal Bleeding, Pyrexia, Jungle Rot and Kataklysm tonight. I finally get to see the hand blast thingy in person!

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      Lucky you. I really wanted to see Jungle Rot and these bands when they went to Albany but I missed the show.

      • Gurp

        This’ll be my first time listening to Jungle Rot, so I hope they shape up.

    • W.

      People bag on Kataklysm, but I dig ’em, and they put on a fun show. Enjoy!

      • Xan

        I like them pretty well. They have had a few hit or miss tunes but I feel that the majority of their music has been quite good. If this doesn’t make you headbang, I don’t know what will: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNgKyNkBVqk

        • W.

          I agree with the hit or miss sentiment, but this one always gets me moving.

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoOvVsqR-HM

          • Xan

            Their newest album was a little disappointing to me. It had a few solid tracks but lacked memorable riffs for the most part. I like the vocals a lot. He varies up the pitch sufficiently to where it frequently sounds like there are multiple vocalists to me.

          • W.

            Yah, the newest was a pass for me as well. i dug Heaven’s Venom though.

          • The Satan Ov Hell

            I’ve never heard kataklysm before today, and god damn man, this is slaying all kinds of things! But I did like Ex Deo, Mauriz’s side project! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSW01sWSPQY

          • W.

            I dig Ex Deo too, albeit in a different way.

        • Lord Ov Kapsko

          Kataklysm are the Manowat ov Death Metal, and by that I mean they’re fucking awesome, they slay live and fuck he new Riot Act 666 impostor.

      • Count_Breznak

        I don’t hate them, but they rerecorded Shadows&Dust too many times for me to still bother keeping track of them.

      • Gurp

        I’m hoping they play an Ex Deo song.

    • Tyree

      You’ll get to watch Kevin Talley play drums with Suffocation. He’s a great drummer to watch play live.

      • Howard Dean

        Have you seen his Facebook page? You can pay him like $250.00 and he’ll record drums on a song for your band. Dude is a machine. I think he’s trying to play on at least one album with every death metal band in America.

        • Tyree

          The guys most definitely a beast! And, yes I do follow him on Facebook and have read something like that. He must be making some serious cash.

          • W.

            He’s such a cool dude, I bet he uses that money to buy kitties for orphans or something.

        • Gurp

          He hasn’t already?

    • Xan

      Sounds like a solid lineup. I really like Suffocation, Jungle Rot, and Kataklysm. I’ve never listened to Internal Bleeding or Pyrexia. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Pyrexia though.

      • Gurp

        Internal Bleeding helped pioneer slam death metal, so if you’re into that, I’d suggest giving a couple of their albums a listen.

    • Howard Dean

      Jungle Rot! Meat ‘n’ potatoes death metal at its best. Byah!

      • Gurp

        Good, I fukken love meat and potatoes.

    • crazytaco_12

      I’m seeing Prong tonight and stoked about it, but definitely jealous of all those other bands you get to see with your show. I have to sit through 4 fucking local openers. Wouldn’t be as big of a deal if I didn’t have to drive a few hours to get to the show and knowingly get slammed in traffic.

      • Gurp

        You mean you don’t like watching 16 year olds going through their awkward experimentation stage?

        • crazytaco_12

          As predicted, each band sucked ass.

          • Gurp

            Hopefully Prong made up for it though, right?

          • crazytaco_12

            Oh, for sure dude.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      Let me know what you think, i am going at the end of the month. Also need to know much cool stuff there is for merch. I will probably be broke from that alone.

      • Gurp

        Alright just got back, Suffocation is definitely worth seeing live. Kataklysm was actually pretty decent too. Jungle Rot, Internal Bleeding and Pyrexia are pretty groovy too, but they’re openers, so they probably won’t get much of a pit going.
        T-shirts were going for around $20 a pop, Suffocation and Kataklysm had a few hoodies and various such clothing. Most of the bands were selling CDs for $10, there was some vinyl too but I didn’t check the prices. Suffocation’s merch booth also had a couple of albums from Criminal Element, that death/grind side project Terrence Hobbs and Derek Boyer did.
        (keep in mind, all that’s in American dollars)

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    You know what my favorite technical song is? Here it is in all its glory.

    • W.

      We aren’t doing this massive Emerson, Lake, and Palmer circle-jerk today, okay?

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        Fine. On the other hand I am listening to a good King Crimson live album. USA rips and Fripp knows how to play music that pushes technical boundaries.

      • Death

        Ban those words please.

        • W.

          We put the abbreviation in the spam filter so our threads wouldn’t get clogged up by you guys arguing over it.

          • Death

            Thank you, you glorius man!

          • W.

            Thank Papa Joe.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I call a truce. This whole thing got out of hand and I regret how far it got. At least King Crimson isn’t banned because they rule.

          • W.

            Right. Just don’t spam every thread with 30 comments about ’em. We all love KC here, and it would be a shame if their glory was diminished from oversaturation.

          • Death

            I am deeply sorry for what I have done.

          • W.

            You are forgiven and welcomed back into the fold.

          • NOT UNTIL HE LISTENS TO SOME MANOWAR https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTNx7HNwKHE

          • Death

            Count me out then.

          • Cock ov Steele

            Count me the fuck in!

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            If I haven’t already apologized, I apologize for dragging this thing way farther than it should have been dragged.

          • W.

            You too are pardoned.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Excellent. I would stick around but I have to get new speakers for my turntable as mine are not working. I’ll be back in a little while.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Who doesn’t love them? I’m extremely excited for the Starless boxset that is coming out of the 28th. I’m even more excited for the War Child Jethro Tull is making.

          • The Satan Ov Hell

            She carries me, through days of apathy~

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            i just got a comment waiting to be approved with a photo of keith emerson in it ! Is this communist russia ?

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            No. As long as you don’t say the band’s name I think it is completely fine. I could be wrong though.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            A wise decision

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            my comment with a pic of keith emerson got removed ! Communism at work in our very own community ! Call a senate investigation !

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          The combination of the three letters is now in fact unavailable to such use. Thus preventing jerks in a circle circle-jerking each other off.

          • The Satan Ov Hell

            They will find a way. They always do.

          • Death

            U callin me a jerk?

            Indeed.

      • Edward Meehan

        W. I like this side of you.

    • NO

  • Guacamole Jim

    I am really digging Narada!!

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Agreed

      • Lacertilian

        Jack has delivered again!

  • Death

    I have been fucking diddled again.

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    At first I thought that Deeds of Flesh song was goddamn joke. Then it actually began, like ten minutes into the song.

    • That’s actually one of my favorite intros, because it just sounds so unearthly and like it came from some alien transmission or something.

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        I seriously thought it was one of those cases were YT had removed the sound from the track and then it had been replaced by the user with some noise, or worse a fraud like those endless “leaks” of popular new songs.

        It was enjoyable once it began, otherwise I might have exploded of dissatisfaction.

        • Lol I thought I had a corrupted Mp3 the first time I heard it.

  • Tyree

    I’M BATMAN!

  • DANG IT JACK MAKE IT SO YOUR LINKS OPEN IN A NEW TAB, I was in the middle of a Narada song and clicked your “Stay Tech” link, stopping the song 🙁

    • Guacamole Jim

      Middle mouse click brah

    • W.

      Just use your the right mouse or ctr+click, you lazy pleb.

      • As a web dev, I should really know better

        • W.

          You really should. I think something must be affecting your concentration. Side note, the new Sanctuary is awesome!

          • I can’t wait to listen to it! Really far behind on my listening, so it’s going to have to wait another week or two before I can get to it

        • Too many PSLs, ur losing brains cells to them now.

    • Normally I go through and add that to all links. Had some issues with the schedule yesterday and wasn’t able to.

    • Idk how to lol, that link is gonna have little Easter eggs from now on.

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    Narad is nice, Chikkhai Bardo is siqq

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    Autistic Savan’ts chorus is unintentionally goddamn hilarious. Seriously hard not to feel a little ashamed in their stead

    • Death

      It kind of sound like he is singing “kikkeli.” Teheehee

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        Yeah, that was the point. It actually is Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici. But I hear: Pippeli, unversumin uus vitsi

        • Death

          The pros of knowing Finnish.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Given they knew it too… How intentional can this be?

          • Death

            I don’t know. This thing has been the subject of conversation on the comment section of that song.

          • W.

            I don’t know anything about Finnish, but I’m assuming this is similar to the way Rammstein throw in phrases that have multiple meanings depending on pronuncitation or spelling.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I’d have a hard time believing this. DLO is a far more serious band than Rammstein, I don’t think they’d have such a childish sense of humour

          • Death

            It sounds like he’s singing kikkeli, which means penis. I’m guessing that it’s not intentional, but you never know.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            The Latin phrase means, By the power of truth I, while living, have conquered the universe. By making it sound like he’s singing of phallic creations, maybe they are trying to hint that the mighty Phallos is the very instrument to this control

            Hail Illuminati?
            Or just too much boggling substances?

          • Death

            Phallus is control! Hail the patriarchy!

          • Edward Meehan

            Hail Illuminati.

  • Xan

    I listened to Archspire’s newest album on the way to class today. I forgot how good that album was.

    • Only Sylosis had a chance of topping that for me, since that is coming out in January, Lucid Collective will most likely be my aoty

      • W.

        What a twist!

  • Stockhausen

    That De Lerium’s Order track was fun, but I’m not listening to Narada. Partially because I know a total douche named Narada, partially because Bandcamp is blocked at my school.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      I bet the douche is the real reason behind this refusal.

  • NefariousDude

    Behemoths the Satanist and Lord Mantis Death mask are tied for first in my best metal album of the year. Wat do? 🙁

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      You simply give Lord Mantis the Throne. Easy as that.

      • NefariousDude

        Thank you disciple ov karhu

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          No disciple am I, fool. For he is me and me means him. I AM THE BEARGOD!

          Lord Mantis slayed, Bemehemoth was aptly meh

            *if I don’t move maybe he can’t see me*

    Yes, it’s from Unique Leader

    • beneath is good shit.

    • Simon Phoenix

      Such an underrated album.

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        Just happened upon it about 15 minutes ago for the first time

  • JWG

    Third time mentioned, hopefully it fits this topic better than the others. On Sunday I get to see Archspire (again) and Fallujah without having to make the trip to Vancouver.

    Huzzah to the local promoter who convinced Archspire (nevermind Fallujah) that they’re not too ‘big’ to play a tiny venue like Logan’s.

    • Two of Jack’s favorite bands! Also, we’ve got a big surprise for everyone next week regarding a band that sounds like march choir. Keep an eye out.

      • JWG

        …next week?

    • I missed it when they were in Chicago, still irritated about it.

  • Howard Dean
  • George Clarke

    lmao at this whole post

  • CyberneticOrganism

    That Narada album is the tits; I listened to it immediately when whoever posted it on the facebooks and loved it right away. Great find.
