I enjoy new Swans (The Seer, haven't heard the new one) but I didn't want to say anything. I just liked seeing everyone rag on Respawned. Tongue

Some of the new Swans album is pretty good, but I can't get over certain parts of it like Gira repeatedly saying "I'm just a little boy" in a strange voice. Also the length of the album is definitely pushing it. Most of the albums I listen to now are sub 30 minutes so a nearly 2 hour album really tests my patience

I think even an hour for an album is pushing it... unless you're fucking Corrupted or something. Then I'm just kind of in a trance or listening to it in the background so it's okay.

I usually love a lot of the longer albums. The only recent one that really pushes my patience, but I still love it, is the newer Gris. Hell, even that's only just a bit over 80 minutes.

I don't care about the length of an album as long as its good.

So apparently the new At the Gates sucks. Singer has completely blown his voice, sounds terrible.

Did you even listen to it? Because it's a pretty fucking great album. It's no Slaughter of the Soul, but then again how are you going to recreate a masterpiece like that? Lindberg's voice has aged about as well as anyone could have expected it to, and while it's definitely not as sharp, it still sounds pretty solid.

I listened for a song and a half before I had to turn it off because the singer's voice was so terrible. You like horrible music.

lol until now, Slaughter of the Soul was their worst album. ATG is nothing without Alf.

SOTS was definitely not their worst or even least good. I've heard people give that opinion many times yet I don't understand why. I think metalheads are just mad that SOTS has been ripped off countless times by metalcore/deathcore bands.

I used to think TSD could have been amazing if it weren't EP-length with a buncha shitty live tracks tacked on. Some awesome songwriting and production on dere.

SOTS has always been my favorite At the Gates record. After that, I can't really decide. I like the others in different ways for different reasons.

I think that Lantlos album is pretty good. Why didn't more people put it on your lists? Tongue

It was good, but not really worthy of anyone's end of the year list.

If had bothered making a list it would have been on mine. Listened to it a hell of a lot.

So, since I'm in here:

Lantlos - Melting Sun
Falls of Rauros - Believe in No Coming Shore (surprised the hell out of me, I dug the earlier ones but this one is killer)
At the Gates - At War With Reality
Mayhem -  Esoteric Warfare (these dudes are fucking amazeballs still, even though it was written by someone who just joined)
Botanist - VI: Flora
Nasheim - Solens Vemod
Robyn/Röksopp - Do it Again
Spectral Lore - III
Sunn/Ulver - Terrestrials
Martyrdöd - Elddop
Mare Cognitum - Phobos Monolith
Roads to the North
Myrkur - Myrkur

Overall, the one that really stood above the rest was, Mamiffer - Statu Nascendi. Pretty much flawless.

A few days ago I found out Dir en grey released an album a few weeks ago. I haven't really given a shit about them in years... but for some reason I was intrigued. I listened to one track and downloaded the album... I've been listening to it nonstop on my way to work and back (so I hear the full album once a day). But yeah... Arche is on my list. I'd say it's about as good as that Slipknot album to me. Probably meaningless to most of you, but I enjoyed it a great deal. Merges their Visual Kei era well with their Americanized metalcore/deathcore.
