Bah, phoey on you

If you ever played any old Playstation 2 games, this sounds like it could be on a soundtrack to one of them. Probably why I like it so much.

Come to think of it, Avenged Sevenfold did a few songs on one of the old (2005?) PS2 Madden games...so yeah. That makes some sense of sorts.

If Godflesh made black metal it would sound like this band / album:



Wish I could offer you more songs off this album, but I can't. It's really fucking good though.

I found it too generic and overproduced. And it was of the "Novembers Doom", almost melodeath school of doom that I just don't care for. Had some decent melodies though. Daylight Dies was better in this similar style, IMO.

Just found out about this band Porta Nigras. Their debut album, is really good.

"Billed as "Decadent Dark Metal" by the excellent taste-havers over at Debemur Morti Productions, Porta Nigra have just graced the world with their debut full-length recording. Fin De Siècle appeared in Europe a couple months ago and has just made its way to American shores this week. The title translates to "end of the century," but its meaning delves much further into themes of decadence and the overall degradation of society associated with European mindsets at the close of the 19th century. The sound swells with a culturally refined version of black-dark aggression, a little like Rotting Christ in a wine bar or Alcest in an absinthe-fueled fury. But really, comparisons won't do justice to the seven solid songs that fill out the record.

Conveniently, you won't have to rely on anyone's half-lucid attempt at describing the German band's engaging 50 minutes of velvet terror. Here at Decibel, we're giving you a listen to the whole record. So stream before you buy. Then go out and spend like civilization was crumbling over your head, all western currency was drained of every bit of its former worth, and the fascists were already scratching at your door. Cuz, hey, just about nothing in that last sentence is hypothetical."

Just came across Plague Widow's EP. Grind/Death, a fairly demented sound. I guess this is what Joe would describe as ambient texturing. The drums are fucking sweet.

Ehh, overproduced? The sound is rather unpolished by today's standards and even the instrumental performance is pretty 'live'.

I agree their sound is generic but the songs are pretty good throughout. Worth checking out for doomsters.

Mm, I remembered it sounded even sleeker than this. Haven't played the album in months. But I remembered correctly that it was awfully lightweight, lacking the balls, grime and groove that makes good death doom. It's not bad, it's just mediocre. In a year of about a dozen very good death doom or funeral doom albums, it doesn't make the cut. If you've already heard Faal, Monolithe, Profetus, Saturnus, The 11th Hour, Derkéta, Anhedonist, Hooded Menace, Lurk, Inverloch, Indesinence, Evoken, Worship, Towards Darkness, Abske Fides, Hellvetron, Vulgaari and Nachtvorst, I'm not sure what you'd get out of Okera.

Doctor: you just have no taste!

If you mean poor taste as in being bad at appreciating extremely badly produced drums, then yeah... I suck at that. It was a decent listening but the drums ruined everything.

I have to agree, the drums sound very weird. Quite detached from the rest of the sound as they're too far too foregrounded. Drums should be behind the music, not in front it. All I hear is "pita-pata-pita-pata pita-pata" and so on.

I see no mention about Rahu's debiut album called The Quest for the Vajra of Shadows. Great lo-fi black with excellent songwriting from Finland.

PS. Orgasmic cover art-work too.

That was very nice.

Actually, I've heard this before. I thought it sounded familiar. Saw someone mention it on Facebook once and checked out the song. I never did grab the whole album.
