I wasn't really thinking of it as metal, but since it popped up in Decibel's list and Adrien's (really excellent) MSN list, I'll toss out:

Graveyard - Hilsingen Blues

I left my login in El Sandboxo, Thursday, 8 December 2011 20:14 (nine years ago) link

forgot about that septic flesh album. that's a good one.

still need to hear the moonsorrow.

vastuum album definitely satisfies, but man, is it generic. also feel like this is one of its strengths, so I'm pretty conflicted about this release.

surprised siegbox is into machine head!

alan, Thursday, 8 December 2011 23:14 (nine years ago) link

never heard of that #1 actually

I'd create a googledocs for this if someone tells me how

Minga Frump (Jimmy Riddle), Monday, 12 December 2011 14:19 (nine years ago) link

Vomitron - No NES for the Wicked

massachusetts_capricorns_cru (henrietta lacks), Monday, 12 December 2011 16:03 (nine years ago) link

also:

Samsara Blues Experiment - Revelation & Mystery
Ulver - Wars of the Roses

massachusetts_capricorns_cru (henrietta lacks), Monday, 12 December 2011 16:06 (nine years ago) link

man how did i forget about ulver. I guess i was thinking that everyone would say its not metal

Minga Frump (Jimmy Riddle), Monday, 12 December 2011 16:40 (nine years ago) link

Because it's not.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 12 December 2011 16:40 (nine years ago) link

Its not good either. I know they're sort of a sacred cow around here and I really liked their last one, but I thought this one was terrible.

I left my login in El Sandboxo, Monday, 12 December 2011 16:41 (nine years ago) link

its great

Minga Frump (Jimmy Riddle), Monday, 12 December 2011 16:43 (nine years ago) link

it's okay; I'll give it a couple of points. I figured if Barn Owl can pass muster, then Ulver shd be able to as well

massachusetts_capricorns_cru (henrietta lacks), Monday, 12 December 2011 16:53 (nine years ago) link

I'm really interested in reading a defense of this album or an explanation of why its great, because I'm just not finding anything to latch onto.

(xp)

I had Barn Owl on my list of noms, but took it off because I didn't think it'd be accepted as metal.

I left my login in El Sandboxo, Monday, 12 December 2011 16:54 (nine years ago) link

its cool; I will def vote for it (Barn Owl) but I didnt expect it to count either, but I mean if nu-Earth counts I dont see why they wouldn't

massachusetts_capricorns_cru (henrietta lacks), Monday, 12 December 2011 17:00 (nine years ago) link

I thought this Ulver stank too. Huge disappoint me after the last one.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 12 December 2011 17:11 (nine years ago) link

its as metal as the opeth album

Minga Frump (Jimmy Riddle), Monday, 12 December 2011 19:06 (nine years ago) link

I'm not arguing whether its metal or not, I'm arguing that I thought it was terrible and I'm curious to hear what others loved about it.

I left my login in El Sandboxo, Monday, 12 December 2011 19:08 (nine years ago) link

haven't heard it but I generally 'like but not love' ulver in their various permutations. so, now I'm curious - what was so off-putting about the last one?

alan, Monday, 12 December 2011 19:11 (nine years ago) link

It's not even close to metal in any form beyond perhaps the theme's explored. At least there are moments of actual heaviness on Opeth.

I like Ulver, but this new one was perhaps the most disappointing thing I heard all year.

EZ Snappin, Monday, 12 December 2011 19:14 (nine years ago) link

Minga Frump (Jimmy Riddle), Friday, 16 December 2011 13:50 (nine years ago) link

The Devil's Blood album is really good btw.

Anyone need a (Jimmy Riddle), Saturday, 17 December 2011 17:39 (nine years ago) link

I was also disappointed at first by the new Ulver, and while I still don't like it quite as much as Shadows of the Sun, which was one of my favorite records of the past few years, I've come around to thinking it's actually pretty good. Why do I like it? I guess for a lot of the same reasons I liked the previous one: the unusual but thoughtful approach to composition, lovely melodies, interesting arrangements, provocative lyrics. I guess one thing that might put people off is the 14 minute final track - which is basically a spoken prose poem over minimal ambient accompaniment. Maybe it's a love it or hate it type thing. It's become probably my favorite track, but you kind of have to approach it as literature as much as music though. I still think the 2nd track is kind of unsuccessful and breaks up the flow. But overall, it's a worthy follow-up, I'd say.

hm, okay. fwiw, it was released in the u.s. in january 2011.

it's the only metal album i know from this year!

I know it was, but like I said, it was high up in last years poll. If it hadn't been in the 2010 poll it would have been allowed this year.
sorry.
