New Cynic EP is freaking boring. Didn't liked it at all.
So Metallica and Black Sabbath at Download. Who else is excited by that?

EDIT: Never mind, I just checked the Download website. They go on sale next week. Earliest I will have the money for tickets is January. Doesn't look I'm going. ****.

well, i only listen to Esoteric when i'm going to sleep, and it's usually the same album (The Maniacal Vale).
but disEMBOWELMENT i can play a lot more often, because i think they're a lot more... "brutal" compared to other funeral doom. it's a lot more based in death metal. compared to Esoteric, which is just super heavy slow doom with some growls.
do you have any opinion on Thergothon?
oh, and as far as new Cynic goes, i've only listened to it once, but i think it spent way too much time trying new things and experimenting. which isn't a BAD thing, but there's just not enough meat to the album... it just sort of panders on the whole time and it doesn't really accomplish much.
it might grow on me, but i don't know if i'm even going to bother listening to it that much more in the future. i mostly just stick with Focus and their demos.
anyone here know of entropy? i just randomly stumbled upon them, they're really good thrash from the one track i listened to. definitely worth checking out imo.

I recently started listening to Dragonforce, and they are quite great. Their fast and long solos are amazing!
Anyone else heard of them? Do any of you like them?

i'd say the early 90's had a bunch of really heavy, brutal as **** bands like that in general.
Dropping in to say that I'm digging Carbon-Based Anatomy. Cynic are getting more and more organic-sounding with each release (sans Re-Traced). "Box Up My Bones" and the title track are great, but "Elves Beam Out" just flops. My expectations for the next full length are pretty high.
It's time to get over the idea of Focus 2, guys. I'm much happier with this than if they had continued playing the same style of music for the past 20 years. Look at Megadeth: they keep retreading the same old sounds and just don't know how to progress.
They never really struck me as anything special. They were trying to be hilariously depressive, and the production renders it practically unlistenable (not to mention those vocals). Maybe if they were an instrumental band and made some drone-doom, they would sound good and the production would be fine. As far as funeral doom is concerned, Ahab's Call of the Wretched Sea is what I stick to.do you have any opinion on Thergothon?
Vektor - Outer Isolation drops November 22nd. there's a new track floating around but i'm keeping myself in the dark so i can listen to the album in full.
just reminding you all for what will be the best album this year likely!
i actually haven't seen literally ANYONE saying they want Focus 2, so i don't even know what you're talking about.
other than the comment about the vocals this literally made no sense at all.They never really struck me as anything special.

Just got Napalm Death's albums Inside the Torn Apart, Words From the Exit Wound and Breed to Breathe. And the fact that I haven't listening to anything else than that the last three days should be proof enough what I think about them.

At long last the Morbus Chron album has arrived.
I think it's really good, however, I feel it's just a bit too inconstant to be an out an out classic. To many slow sections with not enough Blasting if you ask me. But that said, when they do kick into a nice section with blast beats, it's fantastic.
I love Cynic and haven't heard the new EP, but I just have to say that "Elves Beam Out" has to be one of the most lulzy song titles I've heard. Seriously, all it makes me think of is this:
In other news, I've been getting into Iced Earth, and I have Night of the Stormrider and Burnt Offerings. Any suggestions on which of their albums I should pick up next?
