00:32 - Apothecary Aderlating is probably my favorite, shit's just evil as fuck. Some of Mories' best album art too (he does all his own) [link]
23:55 - moonflash The remastered version of Backlit by Isis is sounding so damn awesome! [link]
22:25 - mz Still need to check serimon in more details. My favorite project of him is GTT followed by aderlating. DMV and CoA are also very good projects. Can't say that I'm disappointed by any of his project thus far
22:11 - Apothecary Well again, I can see why. I've learned that sometimes it's the most emotionally sensitive people who make the most disturbing art, so it makes sense to me that Mories wanted a project that would express that side of himself too
22:05 - Erik M. Going from your description, it's indeed hard to believe it's done by him. :P But thanks for the link. I'm going to check it out for sure.
22:01 - Apothecary 90 minute album, so you might have to take it in steps :p
22:01 - Apothecary I think you'd like it, honestly. It's some really good ambient music, but more in a "I love you, be happy" kind of feeling. Kinda hard to believe it's the same guy doing it lol [link]

Hurry up and grab a two-four of PBR and hop in the station wagon, this is going to be one hell of a trip. The boys of Red Fang are going to take on a cross-country musical journey, and you're going to like it.
Okay, so it's not THAT mind blowing, but Red Fang have made a decent album. "But BoxCar, aren't you in love with this band? Shouldn't it be better than "decent"?" Actually no, it's just decent. Why? Because the album has been done before, you're not finding anything new or really that extraordinary. Sure the music is slamming, but I can name 5 bands on the spot that play something similar. Also, this album seems to have quite a bit of filler, especially the song "Throw Up", that my friends, is 6 minutes of boring. Another nitpick is the effects, however these are both pluses, and negatives, a negative being the overuse of said effects, especially the "squeal" this is most notable at the end of "Wires", for almost a minute it blocks out and detracts from the other awesome riff displayed. They add a nice plus when not overused however, almost ambient at some points.
Now you must be saying "Holy shit, you really hate this album, what are you some kind of hypocrite Nazi communist?" First of all, those two contradict each other, and second of all, NO! There are enough bangers here to keep me satisfied for a week.
Oh, man the riffs, there are soooo many unique and amazing riffs in this one album, even Jonathon Riffington would have an overload; seriously folks, David and Maurice are monsters wielding those axes. Then there's the vocals, A mix of metal rasp and hard rock clean, they compliment the album perfectly. Throw the drum and bass's groove on top of that, and you've got a killer combo.
Overall, I'm happy with the release, if they cut down the filler and stop going balls out with sound effects they could create a master piece.
Highlights - "Wires" "Hank Is Dead" "Number Thirteen"
