You know, entry-level melodic stuff. Ta.
all the songs are super long though
Eleventh He Reaches London are underrated
Fall Of Efrafra- Elil
First track is ace - proper epic journey. Feel like I could get properly into this sort of music.
album is released on 16th October. There's one song up for streaming at the moment,, but it;s 17 minutes long, so it should tease you heavily.
The whole album is just incredible. It has been working its way in to me for a couple of weeks. The songs are long, but I think you might like that, given the two bands you've referenced. The build ups get proper climaxes.
Nechochwen - Heart of Akamon
Try this one too. had some involuntary emotional; responses to this album, I am not afraid to say. Has some wodnerfully epic moments of melodicism that are just the right side of Melodic Metal for me. Managers to be simultaneously beautiful and violently aggressive, like only this kind of stuff can be. All the layers of vocals are something special as well.
and from the same label:
Grift - Syner
this one is all layers of fuzzy northern trance from the Burzum school of BM. all about nature and stuff innit. conveys everything that perfect naturalistic BM should. Hold on to your heartstrings.
Fluisteraars - Luwte
melodic, post-rock, atmospheric,long droney trancey, aggro, pretty - this album is so many things, and so damn good at them all, I can't even describe it.
That should do you for a bit. i just gave you four 9-10/10 albums.
also, should ask - did you read my Reptile Shrine column from last month? there are a lot of albums in there that you might like if you are after this kind of stuff.
Will check all of these out!
Really enjoying it - good shout
we're off to a good start.
live blog your way through all of those links! I am anticipating some big reactions.
I'll even dare to use the 'T' word, and say it transcends the instruments to channel raw feeling. which all great music does.
Love it in Angstvrees when the melody emerges from the chaos and the snare comes in to give structure to the beat.
I want to hear what you think of the Nechochwen album. The vocals aren't shrieky at all. they're a lot gruffer, and it has clean singing, layers of the stuff.
The album is about the persecution of American Indians - so it's got a lot of anger going on in it, but is also a pretty spiritual experience.
I'm a bit torn on this one. The instrumentation sounds tremendous, but I'm finding the vocals a bit offputting - they're a bit howl-y for my ears and I'm finding they detract from the music. If they were taken down an octave and less reverby I'd be more keen. Will give it another go once I've sampled some more of the myriad suggestions in this thread.
I love those vocals. They sound wild, he throws his voice around a fair bit.
Hope you get into them if/when you come back to this.
Assuming I'll acclimatise to it in the same way I thought Autechre sounded completely alien at first but love them now. Giving Fluisteraars a second spin at the moment - I'm a convert.
sadly defunct but so incredibly epic sounding skramz. I'm kind of surprised they weren't far more popular,
Light Bearer, similar to Fall of Efrafa in that their sound is mostly based around doom and post-metal.
Serena Joy (also sadly defunct you can get the album for free here though https://weheartrecords.bandcamp.com/album/whr07-ours-will-be-a-lonely-battle)
all these bands owe their existence to that one record
Definitely recommended if you like Envy/Deafheaven
London folks. I saw them supporting Celeste a month or so ago they were brill.
and it's nice to listen to some metal from the UK for once (not that it really makes any difference)
new Veldes ep just got released today.
it's a bit synthetic, in that the piano is a keyboard and the drums are pads (90% sure that's the case) - but it still sounds ace. Ultra melodic, uplifting fuzz with blast beats.
I wish he used real instruments though, it would sound so so good.
Often it's transcendent shoegaze bliss but their second album mixed screaming in with it...blackgaze? Side project Amesoeurs does more of the same
