The only ones I haven't listened to are the Demigod and Rippikoulu albums. Brb gonna make a playlist of these albums.
If you get a chance to see Car Bomb live do it, I saw them at a festival the other week and they we incredible, their songs are so crushingly heavy live. The new material was sounded so good too, the crowd proper went off for those tracks, so that bodes well for the new album later this year.
I saw Car Bomb live back in 2010 with Last Chance To Reason, This or The Apocalypse, and A Life Once Lost. It was a neat show. Car Bomb was pretty good from what I remember.
A life once lost
That takes me back
I remember seeing A Life Once Lost at this elusive show that I can't find any information on years later. I think it was an "Off-fest" show or something.
It was an insane bill. I remember it being The Agony Scene, All That Remains (when they were still good), The Red Chord, Unearth (and then it gets fuzzy and I'm probably mixing in another show, but I think...) Norma Jean, The Chariot and Through the Eyes of the Dead.
damn. that'd have been a killer lineup to 18-21 year old swboyd.
i'm like 90% sure this is the exact flyer from the show i was talking about in my last post in this thread.
This Cerebral Rot album is pure filth and it tastes good
Yeah, that lineup was basically my CD book at the time.
Thrashy new Killswitch Engage
This new KSE album definitely sounds like a KSE album, not a bad thing mind you
I was a little concerned with the singles but the album is extremely solid. I think fans will be happy with how the song with Howard turned out.
This new Conjurer collaborative album is the Leviathan-era Mastodon follow-up I've been waiting 10 years for. Damn.
Had you not heard the pre release tracks?
nope to both. i can't be on the up and up about everything, nate. jeeze.
just gave it a listen because i dig conjurer. call me pleasantly surprised.
ALOL was huge to people in our area. All of my friends loved them. I recall going to Stillborn Fest in Poughkeepsie back in 2010 or 2011 and it was a crazy lineup. Hatebreed, Four Year Strong, A Life Once Lost, Trapped Under Ice, Fireworks, This Is Hell, Thy Will Be Done, The World We Knew, and Strength For A Reason. Unfortunately, this is not the order that they played in, and I was stuck waiting in line while listening to ALOL shred the building down. The setlist was so good and I was so mad I wasn't watching.
Did anyone else pre-order the LP from Deathwish? I thought it released today, but my order has yet to ship.
I’m getting mine from Holy Roar. It should be here today or tomorrow.
Man, that KSE song with Howard really makes me miss him when he was in the band
I'd rather just have new Conjurer tbh
Shout out to Thy Will Be Done. LOVE LOVE LOVE that band, particularly "Was And Is To Come" - Hoping they finally put out a new record soon. Saw them open for Sworn Enemy earlier in the year and talked to the singer for a while. He was super cool. Extremely underrated band.
Anything plini touches is good
They just put out a record last year...
Plus, this collaboration is fantastic.
Personally, kind of disappointed in the new KSE album; I was hoping for more variation, different sounds and tempos, and it's just not there. I remember when As Daylight Dies came out, and we had songs like "The Arms of Sorrow", "Still Beats Your Name", "Break the Silence", and "Desperate Times"(this one especially), all bringing something new to the KSE table. Guitar tone sound is getting kind of old too, imo. Can't fault them for staying in their lane and doing what they do best, but I feel they're capable of more than that
