    Behemoth hasn't really interested me in a long time, and this new release doesn't change it either. Some okay songs but most of it, it's just not for me.

    I was never really a Behemoth fan and this album and how the band presented themselves leading up to the release are so painfully commercial that I don't even want to listen to it. What do you think about it?

    The new High on Fire is alright. I didn't like Luminiferous but this is a bit of a return to form. Still, High on Fire put out better albums before so there's no real reason to pick this one about any of their stronger albums.

    I gave the album a listen earlier today. I think it only starts getting really interesting around the halfway point but still one of the more interesting icelandcore albums I've heard.

    The new Beyond Creation is incredible

    I think it's pretty noticeable that Dirk is not behind the kit anymore but I don't really mind the new drummer so far.

    Pretty decent black metal from Montreal, Quebec.

    Also the new Daughters album, while not metal despite close relation, blew my fucking mind.

    After listening to black since 1995, I'd like to think I have some degrees of familiarity to the rougher bits and pieces of metal. Well, it holds true if I stay within the confines of black; take for instance these wildly different approaches to black, ordered chronologically: Lost Wisdom -> Into the Infinity of Thoughts -> Prison of Mirrors -> With Hearts Toward None VII -> Disgraced -> VoK. Considering that cheeky inclusion of Arkona, you'd rightfully guess that I try to keep an open mind.

    ...and it works, if I seclude myself to where I belong, within the black side of the spectrum. Whenever I attempt to grasp death metal I'm rendered baffled and stupefied, even after all those years of being acquainted to decidedly rougher metal. I don't get it, I genuinely fail to fathom the appeal in the vast majority of the death-based descendants I've ever listened to. Case in point, the good old Slit Your Guts: abomination to both my ears and mind.

    Anyone got similar stories to share?

    So far I've found something that I like in basically any genre but I'm usually bored by death metal unless it's in combination with some other genre. I listened to Seven Churches for the first time recently and I can accept that it's a pioneer album with historic value for metal but I wasn't feeling it at all. I do like None So Vile though.

    It happens to me too, that need for hybridization, thus I find melodic/symphonic/technical death quite a bit more palatable than the overwhelming majority of examples of slam or deathcore I've been introduced to. Frankly, I've distilled my experiences with metal into three "questions": does it have some sort of underlying structure/framework; does it have some sort of emotional transfer; does it have some sort of message? Answering positively in at least one circumstance, that enables comprehension on my behalf. There's a gigantic chasm between (e.g.) Lunarcyrcus and the aforementioned Slit Your Guts; that is to say, the latter is merely a... wall of sound with no redeeming features.

    The "filth" factor made and makes me curious, though, both death and black are rather close siblings in the arena of extreme metal. There's plenty of musical filth in black too, but it's the kind of filth I can understand somehow. When I hear someone praising a case of slam, (much) more often than not I find it unintelligible. Followed, of course, by the shudder I experience hearing the very same person passing forth an identical comment about a case of raw black. I guess I simply have to accept my inability to assimilate death, heh; and then return merrily to my beloved black.

    Just listen to Death, Demilich, Incantation, Pestilence, Bolt Thrower and Gorguts for starters.

    It's pretty much the same for me. I like brutal black metal (well all types of black metal really) but I cannot listen to death metal for the life of me bar a couple of exceptions. Some of the older death metal is alright. Stuff I can listen to is Death, Pestilence, Bloodbath, Immolation, Nile, Bolt Thrower and Morbid Angel for example.

    @hellhamster That Wolvennest album is on my AotY shortlist, and will most likely sit in the top 5 come end of the year.

    What makes None So Vile an enjoyable listen for me is the pure authenticity of the band. You can tell that they are playing harder and faster than they actually can but they are so wild and crazy that they can make it work. Just like Sadus on Illusions.

    Past that I also just enjoy Lord Worm's performance and the drumming in general. Lord Worm has a skilled hand in putting on memorable vocal performances and creating memorable moments. The drumming is enjoyable from both aural and technical perspectives. The snare has been tuned especially well on None So Vile.

    The band combines all of this into songs that are both technically impressive and visceral experiences. The music has weight and impact.


    I'm not trying to convince you that None So Vile is an enjoyable listen, but maybe this gives you an idea what people may like about this particular album and maybe my angle opens up a way for you to enjoy the album a bit more.
