Stop Me if You’ve Heard This One…
A podcast reviews a few albums, and none of the metallic styles of the albums are similar, but there is one that is way different than the others. When they reviewed, the number ratings are pretty close to each other, if not the same. There’s also a review of a single that doesn’t get played during the show. How did you not stop me? You must be new because this should sound very familiar.
The Black Dahlia Murder – Nightbringers (Metal Blade)
36 Crazyfists – Lanterns (Spinefarm)
Sounding – Trepanation (Dark Trail)
All Pigs Must Die – “Hostage Animal” from Hostage Animal out October 27, 2017 through Southern Lord
The Black Dahlia Murder – Nightbringers
I’m pretty much in agreement with Nick on Black Dahlia Murder. I enjoy listening to them and seeing them live, but they don’t stick with me. For me, they even lack any killer songs that would encourage me to want to see them live again. There’s nothing wrong with the band or their songs, but I just feel like I should like them more than I do based on all the acclaim they seem to receive. Hence I’ll probably be skipping Nightbringers simply because the supply of current releases exceeds the time I have to listen to them right now. I’ll also be skipping 36 Crazyfists, but not because of the supply and demand reason. I’ll be skipping them for the more obvious reason that they aren’t any good.
Solid choices. That said, I did go back and listen to some older 36 Crazyfists to feel young and nostalgic again and they definitely did have some more solid material back in the day.
