Haha thats awesome.....get em' young.   My young bloke.

Back to where it all began.... Original Uk first pressing

Kicking off the weekend with the mighty Death.  Never enough can be said how great this band is/was.   

Good to be back metal maniacs....

 

Picked this one up from our very own @candyflip last week to replace my much loved & played original I got when it was released form Pipe Imported Records all those years ago. Still gives me chills decades later so here she is....

 

Celtic Frost - To Mega Therion

Yeah it one of the more striking album covers isnt it done by the late, great H.R. Giger. 

 

Fun fact. Tom Warrior (Celtic Frost) became very good friends with Giger and is now one of the custodians of his estate.

Album was produced by Jon Schaffer of Iced Earth if I recall correctly. It's Jake Dreyer's other band (now former Iced Earth guitarist)!

I've been a fan since their second album (A Prelude To Sorrow) and each album keeps getting better in both music and production IMO.

I got Curse Of Autumn from HD Tracks with a 20% off code for new releases this month.

Have listened to the second album but haven't got around to this one yet. The singer Joseph Michael has a great voice. I think he's recording a new album with Sanctuary if I'm not mistaken!!

Hi All,

 

Griseus by Aquilus, 

 

126324583_GriseusAquilus.jpg.88e04a316b67814e36b886e3226873c6.jpg

 

From:- https://aquilus.bandcamp.com/album/griseus

 

Aquilus is an atmospheric metal band from Melbourne, Australia. The works encompass different styles of atmospheric music inspired by classical and folk.

 

From:- https://www.metal-archives.com/reviews/Aquilus/Griseus/486293/

 

Aquilus' Griseus is actually a very solid album that deserves some of the praise it has gotten over the past few years. The record has an epic sound based upon elegant symphonic keyboard passages that would make this album a perfect video game soundtrack. The occasional acoustic guitars also blend in with relaxed melodies. The choirs are scarcely used which makes them very efficient.

These uplifting symphonic neofolk passages are contrasted by melodic black metal elements. This release offers a few cold guitar riffs that add some grit to keep the long tracks together. The harsh vocals sound quite unusual, being almost breathed or whispered at times. They lack power in my opinion but certainly have a quite unique style. Even people who usually despise black metal vocals could appreciate them in the context of this release because they aren't overused and always contribute cleverly to the atmosphere.

Despite the massive song lengths and a total running time just below eighty minutes, the record grabs you with its mysterious atmosphere right from the start and manages to keep things imaginative until the very end. One shouldn't listen to this album while being tired though because the calm passages will soon make you fall asleep but if you actively listen to this record with your headphones on, it will take you on a wondrous voyage.

In the end, Aquilus' Griseus isn't the masterpiece some people claim it to be but it is an elegant mixture of symphonic neofolk and epic melodic black metal that is perhaps best compared to Summoning but certainly has its very own style. It might be one of the most imaginative metal records of the decade. I couldn't listen to this release quite regularly because of its massive length and at times sleep-inducing vibes but it certainly is a creative discovery I like to come back to from time to time.

Wasn't sure where to post this one, it's not a sonically heavy album. Kauan are generally a doom-ish band, but this album is subtle, beautifully composed, melodic and dark, it only gets heavy right at the end of the fourth and final track in a huge heartwrenching and emotionally devastating climax.

 

This is Kuu... by Kauan, on a lovely cream vinyl.

Youtube link to the labels official upload. (also has lyrics and translations)

Very late to the Metal scene but thoroughly enjoying my journey through the various sub genres. My favorites being Sludge, melodic, progressive, symphonic and of all things Viking Metal.

 

Albums I will be spinning today will be;

 

Jomsviking (album) - Wikipedia

 

Ensiferum - Unsung Heroes.jpg

 

Have nice day.

Well, after my 6th 500ml Stella Artois, I'm listening to this;

 

 

 

Discovering metal in my sixties has been a revelation. So much great music and I'm just scratching the surface. It's going to be a hell of a journey. Might have to take up smoking doobies again!!

Forgot about Rammstein - wasn't interested in their heyday but I might be now. Industrial metal is another sub genre for me to have a squiz at over the weekend.

Neue Deutsche Härte (New German Hardness) is their primary genre.
I like all of their albums and they are a great live band.
