17:50 - BlackEssence Wherever I visit metal site, I see a bunch of people fapping about new sludge release. 3-4 years ago it was calm, now? "We are new sludge metal band" "OH YESS YOU MUST BE COOL"
17:25 - Apothecary I definitely would not say that sludge is the "hot new trend" within metal. If anything, that's deathcore and the recent ramp up of all the pseudo-intellectual "progressive" death metal
17:23 - BlackEssence But it's true. 5 years ago I just know couple of band playing that kind of music. Now - everyone is playing it. Because why? They have no money for good guitars and amps?
17:21 - Apothecary I don't often respond to comments with memes, but that last one calls for it [link]
17:16 - BlackEssence Sludge is some kind of nu metal now. Everyone want to play it and be "so sludge". It's stupid trend.
17:09 - Apothecary I think it works both ways, really
16:31 - Kuroboshi Well, isn't it so that the fans usually vote first, and then other people also start looking into the album and don't give it as high votes, thus bringing it down.
Some of you may recognize Autolatry from one of our Clandestine Cuts articles of the past year, where one of my colleagues reviewed their Of The Land EP. I decided to take my time and listen to the previous album and EP of this young black metal band before diving into the depths of their sophomore album. That's when I met an inconsistency... Of the good kind! Man, they threw me a curve ball.
This track is fucking awesome. From the relentless and dissonant beginning, the Bathory-like clean vocals in the middle, and that beautiful, indredibly cool bridge that evolves into a great post-black-like crescendo.
