Re: Albums Bought (2019)

I - Between Two Worlds

Traditional metal album recorded by a "super group" of Norwegian black metal musicians. A solid little metal album from 2006 that flew completely under my radar until last year, now it's one of my favorites. Out of print, so vinyl prices are high, and CD prices are on the high side too, but I managed to find a Ukrainian release CD on ebay for cheap (hopefully legit, according to Discogs it is).

Nice! I recently discovered the band with their newest album and am now working my way back through their catalog. I didn't really pay much attention before because I'm more of a black metal guy and I thought Behemoth was more death metal, but they seem to be more "blackened death metal" and I like it just fine. I really like the variety from song to song and even within songs, albums that mostly have the same tempo, guitar sound, etc. kind of bore me, but these guys are the opposite of that, so the albums always hold my interest. And their music videos are awesome if sometimes disturbing.

When posting, if you click the little photo icon at the top, to the left of the smiley face, you can upload images to your post. That's what I've been doing at least.

Re: Albums Bought (2019)



I still haven't had a chance to listen to the two albums that came in the mail yesterday, and I have another one coming tomorrow. I went almost the first 3 months of the year without buying an album, and now I'm inundated!

Would like to hear your thoughts on the Chai album. It's getting a lot of buzz on my usual sources, but I've never heard them.

I've listened to the album twice so far -- once on our way to a show last night, and again this morning. My wife is head over heels in love with it (to the point where I'm not sure I'll be allowed to take the CD out of her car ). I like it alright, but I can't really relate to the effusive praise it's been lavished with everywhere. I gravitate more towards the '80s-styled pop (hearing a lot of Tom Tom Club in particular), like:


...and I'm a sucker for the thunderous bass guitar prevalent throughout much of the album. My wife loves the entire thing, start to finish, and her favorite is one of the bigger, boomier numbers:

I love the Venom albums. As far as Amon Amarth goes those two albums above are so amazing that they made me have to reconsider my top 10 favorite artists list. I haven't been this excited about discovering a band since when I was 10 and I first heard Iron Maiden. They have a new album coming May 3 too.

Neither song does much for me, and I like bubbly female-fronted bands. Japanese ones, too. Not sure if I'm in a big rush to get this record anymore.

Re: Albums Bought (2019)

Yeah. Itís more an album I donít mind rather than one I actively like. Iím a sucker for female-fronted pop, including several other Japanese acts (Scandal, Silent Siren, Yumemiru Adolescence), but Iím not bowled over by this one. Could grow on me, though. On the upside, at least my wife loves it, so itís not wasted money!

Re: Albums Bought (2019)

For Japanese artists, I was always partial to The Brilliant Green, and the solo work of lead singer Tomoko Kawase. She has two alter-egos, the super sweet Tommy February, and the hard rocking Tommy Heavenly. I prefer the latter.

I also really like Puffy (aka Puffy AmiYumi in the US). Some of their 2000s work has a real bite to it, particularly the amazing 2007 album Honeycreeper. For a band that is marketed (at least in the US) to kids, it was really a change of pace seeing the video for Kuchibiru Motion, where the duo tries on lingerie in a sleazy motel room. The song kicks ass too.

The Misfits! Those are both great compilations.

I've heard of them but have yet to listen to them, but I'll definitely check them out on Spotify. Is there any particular album that's a good place to start?

Welcome To Hell, Black Metal, At War With Satan are the first three and are fantastic. I would say they sound like early Motorhead meets the first two Slayer albums.

For me, The Misfits are Walk Among Us, then a handful of decent songs spread across a few records.

I like everything the Danzig led Misfits put out. I used to own the coffin box set but lost it in a robbery years ago. It goes for ridiculous amounts on ebay if you can even find one so I just decided to get the single discs. I think Spook City USA is the only song from the box set not anywhere else.

Actually I meant Amon Amarth. I've been listening to Venom since the 80's and am very familiar with their work.

I like all the original Misfits stuff too. I still have my coffin box but it got a bit beat up over the past 20 years. Those little, fragile CD cases didn't help, although they do look cool. And I think you are correct, Spook City USA was the only unheard song in the box set, but there are a bunch of alternate takes of familiar songs as well, it's a great set! Now if only the Samhain stuff was back in print, I have most of those albums on CD or vinyl but I missed picking up the Samhain box set but don't want to pay current going prices of $150 plus for it.

Ah, my mistake. I would start with Twilight Of The Thunder God for Amon Amarth. It is the album that seemed to put them on the map with most people. I have it and the three after and think they are great. The earlier stuff is a little rougher in the production but Amon Amarth are kind of like Motorhead, AC/DC and Slayer where you know what you are going to get every time.

Re: Albums Bought (2019)

Thanks, I'll check that album out first.

I'm currently playing my I "Between Two Worlds" CD. Damn it's good, I wish Abbath went more in this direction musically when he went solo. Then again, the songs from his debut solo release were originally meant for Immortal, I'm hoping his upcoming second album might stray more from black metal (I love that genre but Abbath can write some great standard metal riffs, I'd like to hear more of that).
