23:51 - 3rdWorld Listening to the new Opeth just to bash it and incite some flames in the thread. They clearly sound like Ghost now. B-)
23:41 - 3rdWorld Tasty stuff. Dwelves even further away from any grindcore at all. [link]
23:33 - !J.O.O.E.! Still don't hear it at all. The debut had a lot of punk and heavy metal influence for me. That Chinese band sound like straight up black metal with some melodic elements.
23:30 - Apothecary And yeah, I guess it isn't all that far off from their earlier material, when I think of the Meads in my head now though I typically think of their more recent stuff, i.e. TMOJTJ and on
23:28 - Apothecary This is still probably the closest thing to the Meads I've heard (other than Sigh) [link]
23:27 - 3rdWorld Well, Meads themselves are hard to pinpoint. They don't have much of a predominant folk instrumentation/viking element. So I did find the Holyarrow album kinda similar to Meads' debut.
23:27 - Apothecary I'm about midway through the second track, don't hear much Meads on it tbh. Then again, their sound isn't all that easy to replicate. Certainly not bad music though
