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
The time has come to listen to the new Wintersun album. The long awaited and extremely over-due Time I is finally here. You can stream the album exclusively and in its entirety at the band's official website. Time I is Wintersun's second album and it will see its first release on October 19th, in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Finland and Norway under Nuclear Blast.
Apparently, the streaming server is having some problems and it might not stream right away. The trick is to wait a bit until it loads properly.
When you get past the horrible stream engine..the album is actually fantastic. 9.5/10. No album is worth waiting 8 years for...but this comes close!
Dammit. I hate to do this, but: I agree with you!!! I've listened through it twice, and I think it is wonderful. I like it much more than their more typical self-titled album. I guess I hate to admit it because, like many bands that I do enjoy; these guys are over-deified (*cough* Slayer *cough* Tool *cough*...). But it truly is a great album. I'm putting it on for the 3rd time now!
