    Not sure if many would agree but my fav metal band of the 90's was Corrosion of Conformity, great blues metal band from down south

    I can't say I enjoy their later stuff all that much, but CoC were a great crossover band in their early days.

    Albatross and Clean My Wounds are two of the best metal songs ever. Never listened to anything they released after Deliverance but that album is just about perfect. I had it on heavy rotation with Monster Magnet 'Superjudge' and Tad's 'Inhaler'...on reflection, thats probably my favourite era for metal.

    Edit : in fact, Undertow by Tool, Houdini by Melvins, Chaos AD by Sepultura, Desensitized by Pitchshifter and In Utero all came out around the same time, so it was an actual Golden Age.

    Wiseblood was the next album after Deliverance and it is good, after that, i'm not sure of their later stuff. Tool were pretty good aswell.

    Patchy after Wiseblood but enough good stuff on there to make it worth the effort of a download. The recent one wasn't up to much though.

    Album stream of KSE's 'Disarm the Descent' a week before official release

    You guys wanted a return of the more heavier, brutal KSE? This is it. Well, apart from 'Always'!

    Sounds pretty decent to me. Solid enough really. I need to give a few more spins though to decide if it's forgettable or not.

    EDIT: Given it another go this morning and I like it. I think I'll pick up the CD at some point. It's seems very much to be a follow up to 'Alive or Just Breathing' irrespective of the time that's gone on between releases. I don't think it pushes much new ground but maybe that's the point.

    On a side note, I've been enjoying Pallbearer's 'Sorrow & Extinction' lately, classy doom. I've also given Unisonic's self titled album a go as I'm quite nostalgic about classic Helloween and early Gamma Ray. I was really hoping the Hansen/Kiske collaboration would hark back to those classic times. Sadly it doesn't. It's a decent enough hard rock album and Kiske still has an amazing voice but it's not the throwback I was hoping for.

    I suppose I should just move on :(

    Disappointed! Ive just canceled my pre-order after listening to that. Its consistent stuff but nothing I would want to repeat anytime soon, The overproduction on Jesse's vocals was a constant detractor, he just sounds like every other metalcore vocalist now :(

    Funilly enough I found 'Always' to be one of the more interesting songs on there. (probably down to the repetitive nature of the album)

    I wish (I'm working all weekend!) - Mael Mordha, Mourning Beloveth and Atheos, absolutely killer.

    My mates are playing at half 6. They're call No Man's Land.

    I know there were a couple of people on here who caught Kyrbgrinder at Bloodstock last year and enjoyed the set. Unfortunately the band split on Thursday, so there's no chance of a repeat performance. I think this was probably my favourite set of theirs, especially the guitar solo at around the ten-minute mark



    If anyone knows of a decent band looking for a guitarist of Tommy's calibre, PM me and I'll pass on his details.

    @BeheretiK

    Definitely my 'find' of the year so far. I get a strong sense of 'Woods of Ypres' from them, albeit a very folksy version. Top stuff.

    Im giving serious thought to purchasing the album from them directly.

    Anyone here like twin-stick shooters? Take a look at Death Goat on Xbox Live Indies. The relatively high (for XBLIG) price of 240msp is justified, not only by the game itself being a damn good twin-stick shooter, but the licensed soundtrack which includes: (/cut-n-paste) Between The Buried And Me, God Forbid, Holy Grail, Vanisher, Konkeror, Immortal Guardian, Lorelei and Ovid's Withering.

    I wasn't keen on BMTH's earlier stuff. A bit too shouting for my liking.

    But i heard ''sleepwalking'' on radio 1 yesterday and i must admit my interest was piqued. Still angry shouty boy stuff but much more cohesion between lyrics and music.

    Have a listen to ''shadow moses'' from the same album, that'll be a chanting crowd pleaser for sure.

    @B4TTLEBORN Yeah, both those tracks are great. I liked their first two albums, but the last one was brilliant. This is following from the last one.

    I remember seeing BMTH when they were just starting and they were first band on at local gigs. They were utter shit then and they're utter shit now.

    @thelzdking I've heard they're still not great live, but in record they have improved a lot. People still hate them for having hair.

    Got to admit - I can't bring myself to get into the band because of certain things outside of their actual music.

    @Syrette That annoys me (at least you admit it). So many people say they are shit despite having not really listened to any of their more recent albums.

    It's like people who slag off Nintendo purely for having games with bright colours. If you don't like them fine, but judge them on their music not on your prejudices.
