High On Fire
might be the only metal album i bought this year :S
it was rather good, especially the stuff pepper helped write.
Big Business - Here Come The Waterworks
Melvins - (A) Senile Animal
I have to agree on High On Fire too although I yet to get my greasy mits on that new Om record.
i still havent got Hibernaculum! keep forgetting.
the new Om is short but tremendous.
is only 38 minutes, but it's 38 minutes of sheer joy.
it was 2006, I don't really remember.
Dunno about the "ICE CREAM!" bit though :)
pillamid - geddit it's like a pyramid of pills!
Everyone needs some skronk in their lives.
the "We Are the Romans" reissue is well worth buying.
Drop Dead, Gorgeous - Saylor Lake
The Number 12 Looks Like You - Mongrel
Three fucking quality albums.
Everyone who likes metal needs to hear this
especially the new Melvins album - that's fantastic. Also porcupine tree - Fear of a Blank Planet - is wonderful - if not so heavy.
the Melvins album was 06. oh well,still amazing.
the Melvins Making Love Demos that just came out? It's dead good, raw recordings of some Ozma songs and a couple of unreleased songs too.
Colors. Without Question. Forget the fact that it's on Victory records and actually listen to it. Just wow.
and both the Jesu releases
i really enjoyed the silver ep from a few years back.
the album Conqueror and EP Lifeline.
Both very good!
You did put HEAVY in CAPS :-)
Brutal and still lush
going to see them on thursday in fact.
Their London date a few weeks back was cancelled due to illness. I may have to investigate
supporting Architects with Cry For Silence in Trowbridge on Thursday.
rest of the tour seems to cover the following..
tonight; Sheffield Corporation
14th; London Underworld (feat. Blackhole too)
15th; Trowbridge Terrys'
16th; Brighton Pressure Point
29th; Bristol Croft
The London date is tempting but I am supposed to be doing something else tomorrow...
for more details.
oh and each gig is £6.50 or £7.50
album is very good, if you like the idea of white noise mixed with extremely heavy punk music.
tony danza tapdance extravaganza
every time i die
between the buried and me
all these have been sweet - theres probably mor e- need to consult cd collection etc.....
and then not so heavy but still heavy in places:
future of the left
I really hope I eventualy get into it.
Heaviest album this year - Throbbing Gristle- Part Two: Endless Not. Fucking overload!
I've heard that it's meant to be back to Psalm 69/Filthpig standard, is this true? I've also heard it might be their last ever, stopping doersn't see to be something Al Jourgensen could do!
and he does indeed claim its the last
Otherwise, I don't think this year has been amazing for heavy. Mainly cause I haven't bought the Om or Melvins albums because I am frightened by said bands extensive back catalogue of which I have no knowledge.
But my twopenny worth:
Jesu (conqueror, haven't got the ep yet)
and probably The Icarus Line (which is good, you fagtards, thought whether it's truly heavy is debatable.)
aint that big...the new one is only their third record.
however i think you'd be a big fan of Sleep (Om + singer from High On Fire), especially their Holy Mountain record.
Might be worth my investigation then. Shame I'm not near any record shop worth it's salt right now....
what melvins album is best for starters, anyone?
trawling the melvins back catalogue myself..theres very little fat in it to be honest, dale crover ep is wicked and gluey porch treatments..always begin near the beginning i reckon. that said the ipecac reissue of 8 songs (as 26 songs) is a bit flabby, and on some poor recording you cant hear dale at all.
Minus the Herd. Holy shit it is heavy.
shellac - excellent italian greyhound?
pissed jeans are ace...like the cows having sex with black sabbath
for Unsane's sake
not an album, but it's 5 minutes of heavy tunes!
Pig Destroyer - Phantom Limb
Baroness - The Red Album
Om - Pilgrimage
Weedeater - God Luck And Good Speed
boxing day, or Christmas eve. One or the other if I remember correctly.
The Fucking Champs - VI
Oxbow - the Narcotic Story
Big Business - Here Comes the Waterworks
Afrirampo - Suutobreakor [not necessarily heavy, but alternative to the usual stuff that you get in the DiS end of year lists *]
World's End Girlfriend - Hurtbreak Wonderland *
I've bought a remarkably low number of new albums this year, let alone actual good ones.
Boris & Kurihara is a brilliant album, although hardly heavy.
Same with Jesu's various releases; all amazing, but he's pretty much shoegaze now.
The Om record is awesome, as is the Pelican one.
'in return'. i guess this is an ep really, but i love it.
Between The Buried And Me
Poison The Well
The Dillinger Escape Plan
The Ghost Of A Thousand
