19:17 - Bad English Johan Nilsson on FB updated great cover img ... bm ist krieg'' awesome
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
It's available on vinyl now. Everyone go crazy....because I just did....and I bought it....yay. Oh also this is my favorite album of 2013 and I decided to give it a 10 because fuck you I've listened to it a million times and I still love it.
Steering it very unnaturally back into topic huh? Haha. Or maybe not. I don't trust you.
No but seriously, it felt like a young BaN atmosphere-wise having sex with DsO's. The intros just scream BaN. I just wish there were more work on the vocals. It's the most expected component of this. Not bad, but would have loved some edge. I think we ended up left with very few good bands from the hardcore DsO-cloning of the late '00s. Looks like there is still some hope left in that department of bm after all.
Edit: I am listening to it again, that nine is justified. Had it been released this year, I'd have said it's my favourite.
