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.
US sludge metallers Mouth Of The Architect have announced on their official website that they are working on new material to release this year. The band also plans to tour the US and Europe soon.
Here's the update from the band: "Holy Shit... it's been a while since we've put anything new up on here. So our break is almost over and we are doing better for it. But now we can't wait to get back on the road with some new music. New songs are in the works and will be coming out on the Falling Down compilation CD from France. We are also shopping for a new label and booking agency to do our next record with. Let us know if you are interested or want to help us out in any way. We really appreciate all of your support. Look for us to be around the US and Europe in early 2012. We miss all of you from the road... and we'll be seeing you soon. Yeah and I need to update the merch on here as we are out of a lot of stuff and will be doing some new shit here soon. Love ya bitches, MOTA."
Compilations of mostly european post-metal bands, cult of luna, the ocean and lesser known ones (eg Tesa, Time to Burn etc). First one is good but 2nd one has some exclusive tracks on it and 3rd one I think will have a lot more exclusive/new material too. Can't wait. If you like that type of music then these things are welll worth it imo
