    Anyone got recommendations of albums that sound like Unlock the Shrine from The Ruins of Beverast? Been trying to look for similar stuff the past few days but with little luck.

    The only band that sounds like The Ruins of Beverast is The Ruins of Beverast. I take it you are requesting bands with a heavy "germanic/US atmospheric black metal" sound? I scrambled some stuff sounding like that, you may know some of them if you follow von Meilenwald's work. I post some youtube links but it is necessary to listen to whole albums instead of some songs.

    Nagelfar



    Verdunkeln



    Lunar Aurora



    Darkspace



    Urfaust



    Paysage d'Hiver



    Lurker of Chalice



    Kermania



    Xasthur



    Leviathan



    Weakling



    Can go on but I'm afraid I'll deviate by much from what you want. Those I posted are some of the biggest players in atmospheric bm, which is the main genre of Unlock the Shrine.

    edit: Holy shit, new Paysage d'Hiver is out:

    From what I've gathered I think you're right with them having an unique style. That goes to their newer albums as well.

    What I'm looking for more specifically is the claustrophobic, schizophrenic even, feeling that Unlock the Shrine captures really well. Black metal in particular is a genre in which I'm nowadays finding it neccessary to listen to full albums instead of just songs.

    Thanks for the recs, atleast Verdunkeln, Kermania and Weakling are artists I haven't looked into yet.

    Edit: here's something for people that like Mgla:



    and Ygg, very much recommended:

According to him this is the band's best record, everything is done perfectly, heaviness, catchy riffs and choruses, melody, sooooooo that got me intrigued. After having listened to it I have no choice but having to concur.



    On the new-shit-to-listen-to list I still got: Fanisk, Suffocation, Nails, Light Bearer, Rotting Christ, Saxon, Manilla Road, Portal, The Fall of Every Season, Vreid, Fen, Darkthrone waiting for me. So far this year is excellent so I'm expecting greatness from all of them.
    I haven't liked Soilwork since Stabbing The Drama, that song is indeed very awesome!

    To contribute to the thread, here's the semi new death metal band "Beyond Creation" with their first music video: Omniprecent Perception.


    I really like their progressive sound.

    Oh yeah, forgot to add this, pretty sure it wasn't posted last year. Blackened death metal from Canada:

    Can we limit the embedded videos to 1-3 per post? Not anything too big, but with a slow internet connection or crappy computer the page hangs for quite a while until everything's loaded when there's too many videos.

    I'm pretty sure we did that at some point, but then people forgot

    Anyway, good idea but I hope people still post urls if they have more stuff to add per post.

    Although they've changed quite a lot since Count Your Blessings, I'm really, really enjoying Bring Me The Horizon's new album, Sempiternal.

    I seriously love the shit out of Lapointe and his fretless bass, his performance in Augury (another very good canadian tech/progressive death metal band) is also exemplary.

    Posting Das Tor again, but really this is easily the greatest black metal album I've heard in years.

    I know there's some Intronaut fans here, so I'm posting something from their new album which by the way is great! Progressive/sludge metal at its finest.

    Dem drums...

    The album cover/general artwork is also insanely good.

    So I picked up Soilwork's The Living Infinite double album over the weekend.

    I can definately recommend it, real awesome melodeath.
    I must say I enjoyed a little revisiting of the genre, since In Flames and indeed Soilwork themselves went on a little more alternative route in their last few albums.
    Great stuff, go get it.
