    It makes me wonder about how he actually goes about interviewing these people sometimes. A lot of it seems somewhat retrospective. Still, a lot of D.G.'s statements are entirely his own, I think. As long as he's just being a dick it doesn't really matter to me though, it doesn't really influence how I feel about the music, which is pretty good this time around. I had a feeling that a new album from them would be much better than their previous releases and I was not disappointed.

    FUCK I missed that guitar tone so much. Listening right now.

    It's very good. Doesn't have the monstrous fucking riffs of Paracletus, but they are still huge.

    Definitely better and more memorable than Synarchy, which was a great record in every way, shape or form. Definitely requires multiple listens.

    I'm digging the new DsO but it's a very strange record for them, I think. I like that the pacing is more varied now and the album generally feels more "written", for a lack of a better word, but I will need more listens to tell how much I really like it. The mix is a definite step up though. Their music could get messy in the past but they have a bit more room now and the vocals also sound a bit more intelligible.

    May is an absolutely crazy month with all these releases. New Misthyrming yesterday, DsO today and just as I got done listening to it this popped up in my recommendations:

    Yeah, there's a link to a stream of that album on the previous page together with an interview with D.G.
    There's also a new Abyssal song on the previous page in case you didn't see it.

    Just finished this one myself, quite liked it! I've been waiting for a more blackened goth sound, it syncs really well and makes for a rather nice atmosphere. Definitely going on my list for the year!

    Kull new album (Exile) today as well. Rising from the ashes of Bal-Sagoth (without Byron).

    1. Mjerim - Hatred.
    2. Aveth - Wisdom of Bogumn.
    3. The Penitent - Before it all.

    And an older release, five years later apparently no one outside of the former CCCP space has heard of them:
    Norskian Anathium - Autumn Nocturne.

    I liked the second track more than the first. It's a great EP though, I like the Dark Souls theme. If you care for some more Dark Souls themed stuff check these guys out https://firelink.bandcamp.com/ (melo death/black). I thought it was a decent album.

    Also about that Paladin album: I liked it but it feels way too long for what they are doing. It might grow on me though.

    I'll check that band out. The Visigoth EP is great; the second track better than the first (plus the Dark Souls theme is just a nice bonus). Paladin album is quite diverse, the length doesn't really bother me.

    MISSION: DISORGANIZE
    TARGET: EVERYTHING

    Pretty fun heavy/power metal album.

  15. #10475
    1. Despondent Moon - A Spectral Descent.
    2. Faustus - Lipsia.

    Released last year, but no one bothered to mention it yet: Afsky - Sorg.

    PS. Insert ceremonial slowclap at the feculenttempest associated with the latest Батюшка. It was even taken down from Bandcamp, much to a surging outrage.

    The whole Batushka drama is retarded. Surely, at some point, one of the two Batushka's is in for a name change, and it probably isn't Dabrikowski's (seeing as he's the main song writer - then again who knows what a legal mess this shit is).

    Bart's been told to knock it off by the Polish court. He's ignored it and signed to Metal Blade (who, frankly, are incredibly stupid to even get involved with either of them before this whole mess is sorted out). He's even touring under the Batuskha name, much to my chagrin as they've been booked by some places I thought had better bookers.
