04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.
03:24 - Marcel Hubregtse SLudge is actually already dead since most bands in that genre are copying each other . Savannah SLudge is doing it and so are the others. If you hear mrore than 6 new sludge bands each months you will notice it.
02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho
"Celebrate The Dead", which isn't an Engram track, is worth checking out. Nothing wondrous though.
It is pretty wondrous. Wondrously bad. 10 minutes of mindless, repetitive plodding dross (which could have been edited into about 3 minutes and sounds like a lame attempt at Velvet Cacoon almost) followed by some of the worst and laziest sounding clean vocals I've ever heard. The synths in it are ok though. I don't think I know any other bands that do so little with their releases.
The release is over 29 minutes long. 25 minutes after my post came a post which pretty much underlines that it was the first spin. Quite interesting.
I heard Demon Advance many months ago, it was awful. I had no need to listen to it again to formulate a score which was as bad, if not worse than the track you spoke of, which I listened to half an hour ago
Not your post. But the point is that throwing votes around just like that is a bit weird, if that was the case.
Throwing votes around? If I were to have thrown votes around I would have voted on it many months ago on the basis of one song, which is something I don't do (as I'm sure I've said elsewhere on this forum; I don't vote on albums I haven't listened to fully at least once, hence why I have so few low scores as I usually give up on albums that I don't like from the get go). I left this album for dead, saw your comment which suggested that the other non-demo song was decent so I listened to it. It was awful but it meant I'd fully listened to this EP thus meaning I could rate it. One listen for a record is legitimate for giving a rating if you ask me.
So then you were talking about Rod? He's the only other voter here.
If that's his name. I was referring to this "Didn't expect it to be that bad but...". when I gave the minutes.
This is not a big deal anyway. Just pointing out.
Music like this certainly doesn't take too long to recognise as shit. I did finish the tracks. Just decided to go for the score at advance. I actually do that quite a few times so throughout the years I see myself updating my ratings both good and bad ones. This is what i would call "a pretty damn permanent rating". Not going down but definitely not up.
Rodrigo's the name though... I dig Rod though.
PS: I only have water guns, they are hella fun.... Mine has probably some pee in it though. I don't remember.

Hahahahaha this is fun. Welp, I give it a 5 because I ended up liking the keyboard a little bit more but maaaan they still ruined the song. The second track had some hypnotic potential somewhere but it never gets there.
