    There's part 2 and 3 [just 2 min] too out there, the song is quite long.


    The atmosphere in this song is just simply....that's why I love wolves.

    I've never understood the hype either. Their music just don't strike me as being anything new or innovative in anyway and it just sound like they are trying to play something that has been done better in the past already.

    Here is a review that hits the nail on the head:

    I decided to check this band out at the recommendation of a friend. Well, what can I say..I always figured this guy didn't have the greatest taste, but several other people said this was a great up-and-coming band, so I had to give it a listen. The demo was compared to Ulver's "Bergtatt", which, although not normally the type of black metal I find myself listening to, is an album I really appreciate. This, however, is almost painful, moreso because everyone seems to be mindlessly singing its acolaides. What we have here is some fast tremolo picking, some lazy loping chords that vaguely attempt to be atmospheric, and some downright terrible vocals. I counted a total of one great riff on this demo, on track two I believe it was, and it lasted for about five seconds. I thought, "if they could write some riffs like that and merge them with some actually well thought out melodic passages, this band could be really good"...but sadly, they never do.

    For some reason, a lot of Ontarians seem to think good black metal consists of mindless melodic noodling and hissy, flegm-choked vocals. I don't know exactly what the problem is, but I suspect it has something to do with a lot of young blood being introduced to bands like Emperor and Ulver and Immortal and forging ahead with a rather distorted ideal of what playing this type of music is all about, without really having any background in good metal besides the aforementioned older and admittedly often very good second wave BM stalwarts. It's releases like this, or rather, the positive reactions they seem to generate, that make me lose faith in the scene here. Woods....would probably be capable of producing some good music if they broadened their musical horizons beyond Ulver and Opeth, and got a new vocalist, but sadly, the praise they're getting at this point is probably feeding their egos to the point where they actually believe they're the crown jewel of Canadian melodic "black metal"...damn, I hesitate to even call this by that name.

    That's the problem I have with them. It just feels like a poor version of Ulver's Bergtatt, Katatonia and some Opeth. I don't particularly like the last two already and for me, it never reaches the (undoubted) quality of those bands.

    I see people gushing about them (as the above poster), but they never actually explain what it is they love about the band. To me the melody lines are fairly bland and the vocals aren't that outstanding either.

    Mind you, there's plenty of bands where I just don't get what people see in them... (Thrice being another great example). As opposed to a whole bunch of bands I don't like but can at least see what people enjoy about them (such as Arch Enemy or Amon Amarth).

    You don't really see solos in the genre, it's actually one of the main things that help categorize it as BM.
    hm yeah I'm new to BM , I really didn't try it or care about it before say, a month ago .... so eh

    I'll have to check some of those that I haven't heard yet. Christian Mistress is goddamn legit. Also, have you heard the new Pallbearer? Currently my favorite 2012 Metal release.

    Aside from what you listed:
    Lurk s/t
    Monolithe - Interlude Second
    Gorod - A Perfect Absolution
    Drudkh - Eternal Turn of The Wheel
    Pallbearer - Sorrow And Extinction
    Napalm Death - Utilitarian

    Some of them better than others, but atleast worth checking out. I assume Death - Vivus is good too, ordered it but haven't gotten it yet.

    Oh, and that Ignivomous album was called Contragenesis. Definitely buying that when it's out.

    Listened to this today as it got staff picked on Metalstorm. Very decent, quality drone but I'm not sure if I can call it metal. Their previous stuffs definitely was but this feels like a sort of industrial/drone thing rather than drone metal.

    I suppose I can agree with that, although as a non-musician I'd have just labelled it under some kind of experimental industrial doom or something.

    I don't really listen to BM at all and I really liked this, haven't heard them before

    Bands with female vocalists needn't suck by definition. I know there's been other examples posted in this thread (Runhilde), but here's one more:

    Since you don't listen to much BM, I just wanted to point out that this band is part of the pagan front, a group of National Socialist BM bands. I dunno if their ideology bothers you. I personally don't care that much about their personal political views and as long as they are not reflected in their lyrics I fine with listening to them. Because of where I live (germany) it's very difficult to get a hold these type records so I tend to download them instead, but even if they were freely available I don't think I would buy them anyway.

    Yeah I sort of found that out when I went to go look them up. I already knew what NSBM was so I wasn't particularly surprised when I found out. I also feel pretty much the same way about it you do also, that so long as they don't emphasize their views in their lyrics I'm usually alright with it. And I can definitely understand why its hard to get that kind of stuff where you live.

    Also some chill doom

    You don't understand why it is hard to buy nacionalist stuff in Germany?

    Do I need to point out the elephant in the glass store?

    Anyway, it's ridiculous and stupid. Germany is a pussy when it comes to dealing with Nationalist matters/talking against immigration etc. We're getting better at it, but people are still very much paranoid about historical events....

    I'm guessing you're referring to my post... but I clearly stated that , yes, I could understand why.

    That should be a good thing. My country is a total opposite of that and I hate being here, mostly because of it.
