Re: 2018 album discussion thread



Still on the fence with this album. I enjoyed The Whole of the Law for the most part, and this basically sounds like a continuation of that album. I feel like you could trim the "meh" tracks from both a make one really solid album.

I guess this is sort of the downside to bands like AN who definitely have their own, undeniable sound. Either they develop and evolve that sound or they stagnate. AN have been doing a little bit of both since Vanitas. While I enjoy industrial, and I like the minimal industrial (almost dark ambient) moments in their earlier albums, it just seems kinda forced at this point.

I never gave Infernus the time of day but these three new Hate Eternal tracks are pretty good. What lies beyond for me was typical HE but enjoyable nonetheless, nothingness was different, but man I’m really digging this new one.

Forehead has been outdoing himself consistently throughout the years: Just when you were thinking “omg this has got to be the most boring shit ever”, another new track came along...

from the article:

Quote:
The title is Latin for ďOne Man Wolf.Ē I have no clue what that means. For some time, Iíve been operating under the impression that Mirai Kawashima exists on a different plane of existence from most of us; Iíll chalk the title up to that.
the latin phrase is "Homo Homini Lupus". i have no idea where this dumb fuck got the translation, as this is one of the most well known latin phrases, and spending 0.3 nanoseconds on your favorite search engine will net you however many results you desire, the first of which will be a link to wikipedia. but hey, that's modern "journalism" for you...

anyway, video is unavailable (and it's not "in your country" ) for some reason :/

rofl, I didn’t see that. Hilarious. I also was taught about this phrase in middle school.

Here’s another article with some semi-interesting musings from Mirai and the label:

Re: 2018 album discussion thread

The new Pig Destroyer is one of the top five biggest disappointments of the last five years.

I keep telling myself 'it's a live album' before they throw out some of the most lackluster metal riffs, I don't know how you fail to put Adam Jarvis to good use.

Book Burner is awesome, not Terrifyer awesome so I don't understand what happened. Army of Cops is one of the better tracks. Unbelievable.

New Conan rips.

Ah, got it. My mistake.

Listened to the album yesterday. It’s incredibly bad. From the songs to the lyrics (which used to be very strong for this band) to the production (wtf is that??). Fucking awful.

My preorder is on the way! Haven't gotten around to listening to it yet, but I have high hopes considering the quality of their other albums. Glad to hear it's good!

I think it's pretty good for what it is. Unfortunately groove metal/metalcore is a hell of a lot less interesting than most other metal styles...
And Burnt By the Sun did it way better than PD too.

Yeah, I love it. I think it has some of the dynamics or "diversity" of their recent stuff but it sounds more like classic early 2000's Krisiun. Production is good too.

I still haven't heard The Great Execution and it's been several years since I've heard Southern Storm. I actually did like Forged in Fury when it came out, but yeah, it doesn't really deliver what you look for when you want to hear Krisiun.

hmmm. Jury's still out on this one.

It'll be hard to top their last album, so I suppose I have to enjoy this for what it is: catchy metal with solid writing, nothing mindblowing.

Oh yih, yeah those are all great albums. Hell, I think every AN album is good. Just meant that they clearly found exactly what they wanted to do on Eschaton and have been treading water ever since. In consequence I find Eschaton the best of their modern style (lol, been a while..) and rarely listen to anything after.

I got excited after hearing the preview track, but Scourge of the Enthroned is a little disappointing to me. I was hoping for a harder swing back to their origins. A 180 from Forged in Fury.
But seems to me a fairly even blend of old and new tendencies, as you say, but I can do without the new, period. I'm so tired of staccato, percussive guitaring all over my DM. Especially from a band like Krisiun, I just want riffs. An endless stream of malevolent, escalating riffs with unrelenting blasts behind it. Krisiun don't need "variation" if it means boring stop-start syncopations breaking the pace of the songs all the time.

[ed] God. When was the last time there was a tune like 'Iron Stakes' on a Krisiun album? Phooey.
