    Well, I like the musically. Lyrics aren't really to my taste.

    I really like this band Sarea I just discovered.... another one kind of in the Soilwork/DM/Scar Symmetry mold but with slower, epic KSE style choruses.

    Fractal Gates is pretty interesting... It's sort of like a more upbeat Swallow the Sun.

    Cool. I know most of those, but I'll have to look at those two atmospheric melodeaths

    Hey, was wondering if you had any more recommendations for me? Disarmonia Mundi has been a great discovery. Preferably stuff like that that has a mixture of melody and metal.

    I also somehow just listened to Solution .45 for the first time the other night and I'm really loving that too. So why don't you have any plays logged recently?

    I'll have to check them out the next time I go on a listening/music discovery spree.

    Thanks for the add! I love your melodic death metal taste... I really like stuff like Scar Symmetry, Soilwork, Mercenary, In Flames, Dark Tranquility, Sonic Syndicate etc..

    Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, but I have been writing for a metal site so I have been focusing my writing energy towards that. If you are interested, the site is technicaldeathmetal.com. I just finished a review, an about me, and a now playing section, but they haven’t been posted as of when I was writing this. That being said, I need to address Atheist before I forget. If you heard the album and that the production was bad, well that’s probably because it was bad; their early albums were recorded in the late 80s and early 90s. However, these, along with Death and Cynic, are the absolute backbone of what technical and progressive metal is nowadays! Anyway, ignore the old man’s rants, and check out their latest album Jupiter from 2010. Its got great sound and a much more contemporary vibe - these guys are the pioneers of technical metal and I think on this, their first album in 17 years, they come back and show all these little kiddies how to do it right.

    Other bands doing it right they I have started listening to since the last postings are Aeon of Horus and Vale of Pnath (who are similar). I was extremely impressed with Aeon of Horus especially - although on 2 tracks their keyboards started to slightly venture into the cheesy realm, they pulled off that acoustic guitar passage splendidly. Most bands that do that tend to fall into the territory of bland metalcore, whereby I immediately lose interest. Overall I thought the album was very genuine, aside from the two lame keyboard parts, but those were only short and a very minor detractor.

    Yea, when I discovered that Mikael Akerfeldt was on “Unhealer” I was pretty excited about that. I am glad he had a larger part on the song as well, in contrast to the Soilwork song where he literally did 2 lines of backing vocals. Alas, as you can see, I was not back before Halloween. Did you go to any cool shows? I watched about a dozen horror movies (not even exaggerating) with some of my friends. Unfortunately, there was very little metal. The next part to Blut Aus Nord’s 3-album 777 work comes out soon! I am really excited. Did you get a chance to listen to them? I have not heard Wretched, but I will look into them. I haven’t had much melodic death metal in my life recently, but I usually listen to a bit more during winter. Something about the snow and Sweden, I dunno. Woe of Tyrants is cool in my book - I actually heard them when I was closing the bar at the Rusty Bucket and put on the metal station. They usually came on every night, so I got into that album Threnody.

    Now, unfortunately, with the mention of Fleshgod Apocalypse I move into bands that I think are doing metal wrong. The newest Fleshgod was literally the biggest disappointment of the year, in my opinion. I loved their neoclassical approach to technical death metal, especially on the last full length. Oracles was one of the best albums of the year; I loved the piano and symphony parts. It made perfect sense to be paired with ridiculous technical metal. My complaint with Agony is the keyboards - they are just so damn loud and overbearing that I have a hard time hearing the rest of the band! My comparison is like if you had two big screen tvs with two separate sound systems set up in the same room, and trade to watch Die Hard and Terminator 2 at the same time. Instead of getting maximum awesome, you just get a clusterfuck and understand nothing. If they had just toned down the keys a bit I think it would have been a great album, but as it stands, I find it literally unlistenable.

    That show sounds awesome! I am a huge Decpitated fan - Nihility and The Negation absolutely defined technical death metal. The newer album, Carnival is Forever, is good, but I felt like rather than being the leaders they used to be, they are instead pooling a lot of influences from the modern scene (one song sounds like Gojia, one like Meshuggah, one like Origin, etc.). On a side note, I think they only have one or two original members, so that’s an important piece of the puzzle. As for Decrepit Birth, I am a huge fan! I was really disappointed when they didn’t make Summer Slaughter two years past. I was looking forward to seeing them most. I also have Rings of Saturn, but I haven’t listened to them much. I will get on top of that. Did you go to the Devin Townsend show?

    The new Born of Osiris is indeed awesome. I hope they get the respect they deserve and are not written off as just another deathcore band. Speaking of which, I have been listening to a lot more deathcore since coming to Korea. In particular i really liked the latest Annotations of an Autopsy album, the latest Carnifex, Whitechapel (even though I used to hate on them all the time), Shadow of the Colossus, and a new one called Fit for an Autopsy. I have always been a huge Gojira fan.

On a somewhat similar note, are you a fan of Atheist? They are an old progressive/technical death metal band that broke up years ago, but got back together and put out a new album last year. I thought it was amazing because they were absolute genre definers years ago, then broke up, and on this return they showed up and reminded all these kiddies who was the daddy. One of their guitarists was in Obscura, I think, or at least it certainly sounds like it. I bet they were awesome live!

    Do you like Skeletonwitch? When I was in college, this guy who lived down the hall from me who didn't like metal at all told me his cousin was in a metal band that was getting some recognition, but they were still a very small name. He gave me the band's demo to listen to. That band was of course Skeletonwitch, and here we are years later and they are an internationally recognized band. Continuing with technical or progressive stuff, I will definitely look in Anomalous, Aeon of Horus, and Carcariass. All three of them are high up on my recommended list on Last.fm, and this is the extra push to listen to them I have needed. I am glad you like Anata, when I got their album "Under a Stone with no Inscription" it literally changed my opinion on what metal was. I really liked "The Conductor's Departure" but I listen to more of "Under a Stone." I think that may just be because I am more familiar with it though.

    I have some Scale the Summit, but I have to be in a very specific mood for the instru-metal bands. I like instrumental songs on albums (I am excited about the Carcariass ones) but I feel like most instrumental bands simply don't make up for the missing piece. This is not because I think vocals are the focus, but rather, the opposite. As a fan of death metal for years I long ago came to the conclusion that vocals are just another instrument, of no more or less importance than any other. Hence, missing vocals is missing an equal piece of the pie. What would a metal band sound like without drums? The same goes for Animals as Leaders. Although I respect them and think they are AMAZING musicians, their music bores the beejezus out of me.

    Paradise Lost is fucking awesome. Their most recent album "Faith Divides Us, Death Unites Us" is an absolute masterpiece and something that I think most metal critics didn't give nearly its dues. Paradise Lost was huge years ago and because of that I think most critics look at them as being well past their prime, and although their last couple albums (aside from "Faith") were somewhat lackluster, I think this album is like the Atheist album in that it was a band who was the real deal coming back and saying "Look, this is how its done." However, that is not to say that their old material isn't good. Quite the opposite, "Icon" and "Gothic" are absolutely metal canon. Interestingly enough, I have never heard the self-titled, even though its supposed to be one of their best.
