16:53 - !J.O.O.E.! If it doesn't sound great quality then I might hold off. That bandcamp one sounds supoib.
16:52 - moonflash Yup, that's the one. Sounds damn good, can't wait for a version with better quality like this: [link]
16:50 - !J.O.O.E.! Haven't listened to the released Volahn one yet, do you mean this one? [link] - Not sure about Arizmenda yet but I hope it's out!
16:49 - moonflash Only version I found of the Volahn leak yesterday had kinda bad quality. The one song they released on Bandcamp is probably the best thing I've heard all year! Also, new Arizmenda out? [link]
16:43 - !J.O.O.E.! Alan Partridge is metal. Anyone that disagrees will have molten hot apple pie squeezed at their face.
16:39 - Joodicator [link] My new favourite Tumblr. Not metal related in the slightest.
16:16 - !J.O.O.E.! New Volahn has leaked. Could be BM AotY from the couple of songs they released of it so far.
01. Wrathful Deities 02. Figures Of Chained Spirits 03. Curse Seeping Through Flesh 04. Gateways To The Cemetery Of Being 05. Poisoned Tongue 06. Spirit Of Noxious Miasmas 07. Adorned & Iridescent 08. Crypt Born & Tethered To Ruin
I find them decent at best. Lots of better bands from the style.
Those tracks were more than just decent for me but I cannot refute your statement about the existence of loads of better bands. Bands in this style which I am familiar with could be counted on the fingers and I happened to check them just very recently
Grave Miasma, Cruciamentum, Diocletian, Corpsessed, Temple Nightside, Ignivomous, Antediluvian, Vorum (earlier stuff), Witchrist, Hellvetron, Muknal, Embrace of Thorns, Dead Congregation, to name a few off the top of my head. All vaguely from the same area of death metal. Some more doomy, others a bit black etc.
Have a look through here and this thread. Lots of similar stuff there.
