They’re Being Followed
As you may realize, we try to keep up with a LOT of bands. Many we come across fade away, or we may give up on. Many we try to stick with, even if out of sheer curiosity for ourselves, or just for the sake of the show. Well, this week, we have been watching all three bands for all of most of their careers, and we are just as excited as many of you to see what they are up to now.
Intronaut – Fluid Existential Inversions (Metal Blade)
Kvelertak – Splid (Rise)
Great America Ghost – Power Through Terror (eOne Heavy)

For Kvelertak, I am a big fan of their second album, Meir. But their third album, Nattesferd, was one of the most disappointing albums of 2016. So it will be interesting to see if the band can bounce back with this new release. One thing I don’t think you commented much on in your review is the new vocalist. My initial impression is that this new vocalist isn’t as good as the old one.
Regarding record labels, I’ve realized that I’d say for maybe about half the bands that I like, I can name what label they are on. But that means about half the bands I like I have no clue what label they are on. As time goes on, I like Rolo Tomossi more and more, but I had no clue what label they are on until you reviewed their label.
Brian: Seems like an oversight we didn’t mentioned the new vocalist, huh? I agree he is not as good, but I think he’s an adequate replacement in the same vein.
I am with you on the labels, which is what makes this as challenging as it is fun. We come across so many random bands, that we may only have one or two from a label so the name barely sounds familiar if we come across it. And even then, we we go back to a label (so for a Brutal DM band) we may not care of the rest of the roster because we are so picky on the sound.
