Re: what are you listening to?



I never got into Nemesis Divina when I first got into 2nd wave BM. When I tried to revisit it I found it more often than not 100% certified cornball music. I decided to give this a try because of how polarizing I remember it being at the time and I find myself enjoying it a lot more than Nemesis. No pretense and gay keyboards (people calling Nemesis "Symphonic" are fucking reaching) to sift through.

Satyr is probably the very definition of pretentious in everything he does, but yeah, this album rips and is one of my favourite BM releases period.

Also, that new Esoctrilihum is damn good.

Rebel is definitely the best Satyricon album.

Really? Is it in interviews he comes across this way? I haven't read or watched any interviews of him so I have no idea about his actual personality but in terms of music I just respected the fact that he seemed to do whatever the fuck he wants.

Rebel Extravaganza I think was a bit ahead of its time.

What I‘ve gathered from his personality over the years reading interviews, following his personal account on Instagram etc., is he’s quite arrogant, full of himself and seems to have an attachment to fame and fortune that appears vain to me. He’s not one to tolerate criticism and is of the opinion that his entire output is amazing. Rockstar allures, basically. He’s a lover of “the good life”, so to speak: fast cars, watches, gourmet foods/wines etc. and he’s a (seemingly quite successful) wine maker as well. However, it’s also apparent he’s quite intelligent and educated, which he shows off at every opportunity. Maybe pretentious wasn’t the right word. Guess I’m fascinated and disgusted with him in equal parts, lol.

EDIT: Regarding the “he does whatever he wants”-bit: I definitely think Satyr made a conscious decision to sell out and pander to the mainstream at one point (namely with the release of “Now, Diabolical”). Now, that certainly qualifies as “doing whatever he wants”, I suppose, but doesn’t bode well for his artistic integrity. Fwiw, I think the only Satyricon record that was complete garbage was the self-titled and find the “Black ‘n Roll”-phase of the band quite enjoyable.

Double-posting to say that new Odraza is fucking amazing! Maybe I’ll finally get into the other record.

Re: what are you listening to?

What’s wrong with the debut? Questioning whether another polish black metal band is what I need, I agree though what I’ve heard is very good.

Not sure how I feel about the new paradise lost, the first two tracks though is experience like the young guns don’t know. It feels like without the two bonus tracks it leans too heavily toward the goth elements. Do we even get bad productions anymore though? Sounds huge.

Another veteran band that kills it is godthrymm.

No one does disgorge like Devangelic, getting into phlegethon right now but the new one awaits.

Defeated sanity discography, chapters remains as brilliant as I remember it ten years ago.

Finally a big thank you for Slugathor; like discovering Serenadium for the first time after thinking I’d heard everything.

Fair enough, didn't know all that!
I definitely did base my "does whatever wants" comment off of that "Black `n Roll" style since I know at the time he was definitely alienating a lot of Satyricon fans and the black metal scene in general by doing so.

Funny enough I enjoy most Satyricon albums myself as well!

Thankfully the new one doesn't sound like pure Disgorge worship. I think it largely has to do with the new drummer's style. Doesn't have that annoying Ricky style of quarternote hi-hat pulse during the blastbeats and triplet doublebass sections.

Newest album feels more like Putridity (maybe it's just the vocalist, I don't know) than Disgorge but I think they're finding their style. Honestly the first more "stereotypical" brutal dm album I've bought in a while.

Nothing wrong with it, I‘ve only spun it a couple times and it didn’t grab me, but this new one I immediately found amazing and felt compelled to return to.

Have you checked out Desecresy? If not, you should give it a shot - it's by the main song writer for Slugathor

Yes slowly but surely I’m nearing these types of bands.

Man, I love Damage Inc, but every time I see those dudes do a Metallica cover the tone just never sounds right. The parts that I feel like it should be heavy and percussive it just sounds rubbery and bouncy. Idk. I don't feel like their sound carries over well for those type of songs.

was thinking the same thing. it just sounds so... tame. Metallica at their worst has more balls than that. but i guess it's the nature of DT. everything they do sounds as bland, soulless, and gutless as the average warmup exercise (i.e. 99% of their songs)

I liked it a lot too. Was fun to see everyone having a good time and Petrucci shredding that solo. I've always wanted to see him play fast rhythm stuff so this was a pleasant surprise to find.

Re: what are you listening to?

All those amazing death metal albums of the last five years I didn’t spend enough time with - scorched, outer heaven and gorephilia.

Trying to get into early averse Sefira because I adore advent parallax, but they were far more traditional back then I’m ashamed to say lackluster. Will persevere.

Binging on nightbringer and side projects, especially aoratos - each individual in feel although the techniques are the same.

New moloken sounds more like virus than cult of Luna.
