Episode 312: Comeback Kid, Dyscarnate, End 2017 Album Reviews + Vespera Preview

Just Different Enough

Don’t you just love when an album is immediate?  When it is familiar, yet still fresh?  When it plays on some of your favorite things without sounding exactly like something you have heard before?  If you answered “no” to any of these questions, just come back for 313.

  1. Brian: Another point for Bob! I totally forgot about that band.

    You know us a little too well to point out Nick didn’t make his “no adjective death metal” comment. Ha ha

  2. Dyscarnate’s previous album, And So It Came To Pass, was my number 11 album of 2012. So it comes as no surprise that I was highly anticipating With All Their Might. This album lives up to my expectations. I pretty much agree with everything you said about it, but am surprised you didn’t point out that Dyscarnate is death metal without any modifiers or adjectives. It’s not technical (even though it’s on Unique Leader), it’s not super brutal, it’s not melodic, nor can it be called groove metal. It’s just plain old death metal, which is notable because that’s not something that Nick usually enjoys.

    Speaking of things Nick enjoys, what about the supergroup The Damned Things.
