Yes, agreed. I love the fact they aren't re-inventing the wheel. At this point, put out what the fans expect and try to keep it fresh. I'll be picking this up for sure.

I find it near impossible that any other album being released this year could match how good this is going to be. I saw them as middle act when I saw Wolves in the Throne Room in San Francisco last month, and they completely stole the show. They played the above song and another from the still un-released Come the Thaw, and I was just blown away--they were far and away the best band of the night. Can't wait for the album. CD comes out next month, then vinyl in the Summer via Flenser. Need that HEADLINING tour now haha.

It's pretty good, although Agony & Opium is better. On another forum (the one that turned me on to them) a lot of the guys were a little disappointed in this album, feeling that there was a little southern rock influence in it. I did not have the same complaint though.

That was a great show.

Worm Ouroboros just played Eli's Mile High Club in Oakland this past Friday. Missed it since I was in Oakland the night before for English Dogs and I didn't feel like driving back the next night.

I'll definitely have to listen to it this week.

I lied--possible 2012 album of the year contender to Worm Ouroboros:

After reading the high praise, I grabbed Wolves In The Throne Room's newest, "Celestial Lineage". Damn, that is pretty amazing. Completely exceeded my expectations.

What has surprised me, is a lot of these newer "Black" metal bands have a surprising amount of depth. Meaning, they don't just do black metal...there is so much more going on. The European black metal scene was never really anything I had interest in. But if there are bands that can make music like the Americans, I am certainly interested in hearing it.

Worm Ouroboros is up next...

I liked it too, but thought the female vocals were a bit much.

Wouldn't say that they're glaringly dissimilar, but wouldn't ever really think that they were particularly comparable, either--but whatever.

Their best work, in my opinion, is from the split they did with Panopticon. The following song, in particular, is the absolute crowning jewel of their complete discography (from what I've heard--lots of their early stuff is extremely limited and long out of print/stock...not to mention that opinion may change upon the release of the new full length this summer):

I thought Celestial Lineage was ok, but only a hair better than the rather forgettable Black Cascade from 2009. Their best work are their 2006 and 2007 full-lengths, Diadem of 12 Stars and Two Hunters, the latter being my personal favorite. The EP Malevolent Grain is also rather exceptional, I'd say.

How well-versed in American black metal are you, by the way?

I'm a total WITTR flag waving fan, so I tend to love everything they do. I loved Celestial Lineage. The analog production, the raw crust; it's a powerful record, even more so when heard live. It doesn't top Two Hunters, and I'd put it slightly above Black Cascade, although I did love that record, too.

Their live shows are so mesmerizing; it's like going into a trance state.

Not very at all. As I said, black metal as a whole was a turn off for me. But the American style is something I can get into.

If there are other suggestions, by all means send them my way. I would love to give them a listen.

PS - I got the EP too, which is next on my list of things to listen to this week.

I'd recommend checking out Drudkh, Agalloch, and Gallowbraid, although the last two are more folk black metal.

Jesus Christ.

No offense to those who like it, but this is fucking horrible. Is this what Iron Maiden and Metallica sounded like to my parents*, who referred to it as noise? Have I gotten that old already?

*actually, Dad liked Aces High when he heard me listening to it one morning way back in the 1980s.

I prefer my metal blackened as opposed to all-black. Great new album....

It's an acquired taste. I can listen and enjoy some black metal, but prefer Trad. Metal to it for sure. If you can get past the vocals (which is often the sticking point for me) there's a fair amount to like, so long as you can enjoy music that completely eschews the verse-chorus-verse blueprint.

So in my opinion, Overkill's Electric Age is better than Ironbound.
