Pretty self explanatory. A general forum for everything non-metal that you dug in 2012, be it EBM, punk, noise, jazz, hip-hop et cetera. Youtube clips definitely a good idea when possible, if not a brief description at the very least. Haven't concentrated much on non-metal stuff this year but some interesting stuff that has come my way:

Well, this sounds like it might be a bit fantastic. Occult/hard rock, female fronted. Only listened to couple of songs but I'm defo going to like this.



Some good material, but overall? No-nononono No No-no-Nono No. It's a MS invisible band.

Did a quick search, found nothing, so sorry if it was already posted. This is probably the best hip-hop album released this year.

And then of course there's Asking Alexandria... For the record, nobody ever asked Alexandria anything ever again.

Fair enough =P How about some new Jodis? (Aaron Turner / James Plotkin project)



Bandcamp


Surprised by how much I liked this when I finally got around to listening to it, by the way. As I said on RYM (in one of my worse reviews, but nobody else had written anything about it):

Quote:
I'm not a huge fan of Aaron Turner. I'm generally skeptical when a project is advertised with his name: another slice of boring man's metal, no doubt. Maybe it's some unfounded prejudice in the back of my mind, but Mamiffer, Greymachine and Old Man Gloom all sound extremely derivative within the framework of their genres. I'm lukewarm even about most of Isis's discography, despite their undeniable high points.

Imagine my surprise when I actually liked this album. And not just "yeah it's okay" liked, I mean really liked. Minimalistic guitar motifs repeated ad nauseam, some hushed drones humming in the background, and fairly bland but sonically fitting clean vocals. The album sounds cold and detached, but not so much so that you couldn't enjoy the experience. It sways along lazily, the sharp distortion of the guitar echoing in the silence.

I'm of the school that thinks comparisons are usually central to a good review. In some ways it's lazy, but the real basis of our talking about music or comprehending it internally is in relation to what we know. Behind flowery words and pseudo-intellectual posturing, reviews really boil down to two things: "I like/dislike this" and "Sounds like X". I'm going on this tangent because I have very little more to write about Black Curtain. But to stay somewhat on topic: the album sounds something like a cross between Codeine and 21st century Earth.

I can't say any particular tracks stand out as my personal favorites. Overall, it's a solid and (given one of the creative minds behind it) surprisingly original album. I probably won't return to it often in the long run, but I'm sure at some point I'm happy to rediscover it.

Holy fucking shit in a cracker... this is probably album of the year. Shame it came after the vast majority of end of year lists, I doubt it'll get a look in in any awards but I might push for this to be nominated in the MS awards as there's a lot of metal on this one:



Whole album is on Bandcamp, you lucky slags.

dubstep? electronica hardcore?

Well, no problem there. I even liked the artwork dissing Indian "god-sitting" stature , but didn't like the music at all. Srs, it was one hell of a boring stuff.

Thanks for recommending it.

I'm pretty sure there's no dubstep on this record. Maybe the very odd bit of dub. There's metal, flamenco, tons of classical, baroque and piano, all on a bed of breakcore. Incredible stuff.

To call this boring is to misuse the phrase in an egregious manner and to misunderstand the term's meaning completely



Definitely album of the year for me. Easy choice.

^ That band sounds fucking great! I'm going to give it some time before the year ends. That one could easily be on the metal recommendations thread

Anybody already mentioned Art By Numbers? Seems they already made themselves quite a reputation this year with their debut, some mathcore/math rock with a lot of jazz influences. And super gay.

Well this IS metal.

Just like The Human Abstract or Protest The Hero, both which are on the site.

Funny you say that, it seems there's a general agreement amongst the staff / elite that this has enough metal in to be considered for this site, mostly through me shoving this down people's throat

I'm not sure exactly what genre these guys are, but some sort of electro. They are tagged as electro house and industrial house on bandcamp. Some interesting music though. Any reccos similar to this?
