I heard the album "Assassins..". I like it very much. Do you know similar albums from other bands with same style?


Their new EP, I forget what it's called, is in the same style.

I think Instinct is a masterpiece, but it seems like im the only who was disappointed with the Black Meddle record. Its like they tried to do a new Instinct, but failed. I dont know..I just never got into it... Instinct however is one of my fav metal records ever.

Stoked for Addicts. Sounds like it's going to be a trippy ride so whoever was digging their more experimental side, get ready for it to be turned up an extra notch.


2010's looking bright amigos.

Did you try the Instinct: Decay album? It's totally different to Assassins and about 58654500 times better (in my opinion)

Yeah actually I only heard Assassins. Not fair for me to judge them from one album, I know. I'll get Instinct : Decay and give it a listen. I'm really hoping this will not be as bad as Assassins.

Nah, it's so different it may as well be by a different band. One of all time fave albums actually.

So a shift back towards the present leaving Assassins and Instinct:Decay behind, what do you all think of the new song ? Sounds promising to me and it's clearly an indicator that they are diving into something maybe even more versatile than on the previous album. Should be good.

2010's looking bright amigos.


Indeed, it is looking bright..a bit too bright and not so, "grim". With that new track it sounds like they're one step closer to being shoegaze with raspy vocals. In fact, the keys on that track very much remind me of a band a few of my US friends are in, which is full blown shoegaze/post-punk. I actually enjoyed the majority of Assassins. Sure, here and there it seemed kind of poppy with some clichè lyrics but, it wasn't bad, I especially enjoyed the instrumental track with the sax - sax or sax like synth, it worked for Carpathian Forest on "Cold Murderous Music" and, it worked for Nachtmystium.

Not diggin this new track though.

Judging from your tastes I can see why you're not so fond of the new track.

On another note, I'm assuming that this new song takes some inspiration from Killing Joke ? Haven't listened to much of their stuff but I get that impression.

Very cool and interesting interview with Blake Judd. This guy seems like someone you'd want to sit down and have a beer with, very modest.

New song bored me, but if your interested in reading about it, the review of the album at stonerrock.com is detailed, and the reviewer is pretty nuts about the new album.

Has anyone heard the new album yet ? I'm debating on whether to order it or not. I need some good unbiased criticism here.

It sounds awesome; definitely one of the best and most courageous USBM bands around.

Seems Sanford Parker, formerly integral to Minsk, and involved in the production of recent Nachtmystium albums has been given a full-time keyboard position in the band.

that screams ZOMGWTFBBQAWESOME! to me...

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to hearing the rest of the album. The three songs so far have been really promising and I'm enjoying the keyboard elements.

i'm just waiting for the album so i can consume all at once. i know Sanford was instrumental in the first Assassins based upon the recording/making of video, particularly in the more bizarre end of effects, including the piece they referred to as the "Mothership".

and Minsk was awesome. i cannot overstate that point, as it seems so few have checked them out.

Finally checked "With Echoes In The Movement Of Stone" out but sadly it didn't leave me as amazed as I hoped. mid to strong 7. The vocals were probably the weakest part. It was a month ago or so... Will probably try another time since it feels like it could be a grower.

Not the awesomest stuff I know, but still bloody damn good. Beware, it's a grower

How do they differ? I'll definitely pick it up, but I'd like to know since, like The Turbanator, Assassins got really boring after a few listens.
EDIT: Silencing Machine is fucking amazing.

New album is rather 'meh' to me after five listens. Probably my least favorite since before the I:D days (I quite like Assassins and Addicts). The majority of people seem to be loving it, so maybe I need to throw it on the stereo rather than headphones. Maybe it's more meant for that type of format. To me, it seems like there's really not that much going on in the songs, when I expected more effects and such. Hopefully it clicks, because I really want to like the album.

It actually introduces nothing new, but it's a hell of an atmospheric black metal album. Not original, but very high quality and done with finesse. Personally, I think that "The Lepers Of Destitution" is the best track on the album. Man it might even be my all-time favorite song

I think you should try that. I know a lot of people like to listen to music on headphones - I guess to get lost in their own personal bubble - but this album sounds really nice turned up on some good speakers. The title track is especially the most effective on a good pair of speakers. When the bass drops at the breakdown, it's so freaking heavy.

"Meh" is how I'd describe the new one. Then again I:D is the only album of theirs I've ever liked (and boy, do I like it).

Personally, I still think the new ones sounds like a vastly less interesting, but marginally more black metal version of Castevet.

I:D is the only one I love note-for-note, where everything was perfect:

- muddy-yet-atmospheric production
- their most relevant usage of effects (as in, not using effects for effects' sake like it seems they have been lately, because that's the niche they fit now)
- consistently killer riffs
- perfect vocals (they've never been as good Post-I:D)
- imaginative cover art
- fairly simple but superb drumming
- and, for the most part, concise song lengths

They've struggled on most of those points on the releases after I:D. I like Assassins and Addicts, but there are songs on them that do not fit in, and quite frankly, are quite a struggle to listen to. Not to mention, a few of them overstay their welcome (the song "Assassins" for example). I am very much a Chris Black fan, so perhaps that's why I enjoy that record (that and the drumming). I just wish they would have had a couple less instrumental tracks and a couple more blackened songs on Assassins.

Addicts is quite a different record, and, to me, is the more consistent of the two. There's at least a couple of enjoyable parts in every song, but again, some songs are too long.
