"Metal" is the best thread title here

One listen in a suboptimal environment, but I am more impressed with this album than I thought I would be. Better than 10,000 Days, very very reminscent of Lateralus.

Feels very brooding and self-indulgent, more than usual. It’s almost like they said “fuck you were are now ‘Lateralus the band’” and fucking owned it.

“Descending” and “7empest” stand out. I think I’ll love the shit out of “Pneuma” when I have a quiet moment to listen.

Pneuma from my naive listen seems basically the “Tool Suite” where every few moments it seems to be referencing some themes or melodies or sounds from one after another of their previous hits.

The HU have released their full album.

Some 80’s Japanese heavy metal found thanks to the FENRIZ METAL playlist on Spotify:

Definitely agree with the idea that there’s some Mercyful Fate influence here.

There’s only one Devin Townsend.

He’s so Devin Townsend that if there were two Devin Townsends, he’d be both.

A very compelling Chinese Black Metal compilation:

It’s NYOP so, you know, give 'em $6.66 or something if you like it. I know I did.

WEEDIAN sounds like a band created by ADMIN.

I found this guy’s channel and I love his how-to-[extreme genre] series.

The guy is hilarious and Norwegian and just seems like an actually decent dude; and still, due to the subject matter, his videos are extremely NSFW (within the confines of what is allowed on YouTube, which, is barely) They’re still freaking hilarious and informative however.

Also the songs he actually makes are legit awesome, like the one at the end of this:

This one might be more or less safe for most people:

Another show in NYC during a PAX when I won’t be in town. This is seriously the 4th or 5th time this has happened. Most because people keep doing shows in NYC on Labor day. This time it’s on leap day!

I would be more Thankful for Scientist if their songs weren’t all 8 fucking minutes long.

Anyway, here’s totally normal Devin Townsend leading a… metal gospel choir? The weird stuff starts at 1:08.
