The \m/etal thread

New board, same thread.

Botanist just announced a new album for october: https://verdant-realm-botanist.bandcamp.com/album/photosynthesis
there's a song released for it! the album cover has tree roots as lungs!

And as a reminder their (i think it's a whole group now rather than just martinelli with occasional guests) last album was really good. pastoral metal for fans of midsommer

bandcamp should be added to the media tag. they have a really good embed widget

e: and yes, it is controversial to open the metal thread about a band that metal-archives has determined to be Not Metal, but they are definitely metal lol
 

i've listened to this album like 100000 times and i never really pay attention to how beautifully punchy the kick drums are. like it almost sounds like a 909 kick sample. I wanna dance to it

The new Faceless Burial album is fucking phenomenal! Nice blend of early-Suffo brutality and some progressive/weirdo riffing. The drum sound is absolutely perfect, too! The drummer is also in Internal Rot (ffo: Insect Warfare). When they shift down into a stomp it's like getting punched in the chest. One of those rare death metal gems that works well in a lot of different settings: want to space out and get lost in a labyrinth of riffs and drum patters? Ok! Is it squat day and you need a kick in the ass to move that barbell? Ok!

Absolutely love the cover art, as well.

A new metal thread means I get to rec Andrew Hulshult, he of modern boomer shooter music fame and sundry DOOM remixes.

Since it fits in the thread, does anyone have some good recommendations that are specifically symphonic metal with English lyrics? The only stuff I've really found is Nightwish and Within Temptation.

Took me a few years to get around to it but Formulae is fast becoming my favourite Master's Hammer album. It has this occult-industrial inflection that's a far cry from their first album, but anyone who could stomach the more avant-garde work like Šlágry will probably be able to get into it. Franta's vocals sound better than ever, too!
 
im still partial to ritual (though i've barely gone through their discog). the industrial tinge they take is definitely admired though
