My top 10 list can only consist of 2018 albums I also actually bought in physical form. Some of my favorite 2018 albums are from 2017 or 2016 actually :lol:

No particular order yet:

Mystik - Skalder Från Urskogens Dunkla Mystik
Abhor - Occulta Religio
Portal - Ion
Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth
Sect Pig - Crooked Backs
Unknown Artist - Ancient Records Demo Compilation
Merzbow - Exoking
Visigoth - Conqueror's Oath
John Coltrane - Both Directions at Once

I bought nine 2018 releases in 2018, which is actually quite much, I rarely buy albums close to release time. Judging my past buying habits, most 2018 releases I'll own will be bought in the following years.

Only one spin so far...I'd say no but it does scratch the itch pretty well.

Traditional Metal isn't really my forte, so Visigoth is pretty vanilla when it come to this particular subgenre, but I really enjoyed that album. Except for that Salt Lake City song,, that one somehow doesn't really fit. The song itself isn't bad, it just doesn't fit. The same goes for their Necropolis cover on the debut. Great song, great cover, love the original etc, but it doesn't fit on the album, and why did they put right in the middle? The good news is, Visigoth have yet to make their perfect album, maybe it'll be their next (hope not).

Post Re: Random Metal Thoughts......Individual Thought Patterns
I'm back on Bal-Sagoth. My love of metal and orchestrated music keeps pulling me toward shit like that. Dimmu's more overtly symphonic later stuff. I'd love for there to be a band that truly fuses the two.

What I mean by that is: a band that finds a way to make brutalistic, riff-based music truly work with orchestrated music without sacrificing any sophistication or complexity. I'm sure it's possible, but it'd be a hell of a trick. They're two very separate beasts. I kind of want to attempt it myself, but my orchestrations tend to be on the 4/4 end of things because of my foundation in rock and metal music.

Like... Master of Puppets has measures in 5/8 everywhere, but they're spaced repetitively, and symphonic music doesn't do that. You'll just have one bar of a weird time signature so a musical phrase or whatever can be expressed fully and then it never happens again. The two styles of music are at odds with each other in so many ways, I wonder if it's...

Fleshgod Apocalypse?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjKyzwqIT7s
not "truly" orchestrated though

Later Septicflesh?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BJqlcNX9dE
used a real orchestra for this one at least

Maybe you're aware of them already though

Matt and Josh are loving the VIsigoth too, so it's a total win-win situation for me when the boys love the tunes too.
I also have been playing Queen of Time so much in the truck that both of them are starting to like some of the tunes.

Maybe you're aware of them already though

I remember those guys. iirc they were more along the lines of death metal with classical interludes.

I'll check out both links though.

[...]

Alright so SF are attempting it in places. Kind of a death metal take on what Metallica did with S&M.

Fleshgod Apocalypse next.

[...]

Closer. If you have a poor sound system though, all you'll hear is dm drums. The drums get in the way majorly. Very sharp band, for what that's worth now.

FG are interesting in an almost anthropological way because of what they're attempting.

Septic Flesh is doing an 80/20 split in favor of metal, Fleshgod Apocalypse similar but favoring the orchestrations a more. Both are admirable attempts; many of man hours go into being able to play that well.

They're hinting at what I think is possible. Both bands lack flavor though.

This is definitely moving the goalpost back a bit, but to date the best fusion of metal and orchestral shit to date is Angra. Somehow, they make the 4/4 stuff not matter. Their early work is outstanding, specifically Holy Land and Angels Cry. It's the Brazillian world music that bridges the gap between metal and classical. Brazillian music is orchestrated, but often in 4/4 you see. So... it finishes the patchwork out convincingly.

And I love Angra's early stuff, I really do. But what I want to hear is a band that does is just as effective at adapting extreme metal with some form of orchestral music. Typing this out has given me ideas... *waddles off to Reaper*

You ever hear Haggard? It might be exactly what you are looking for, or maybe not. It's got death metal parts and pretty much a full orchestra with actual instruments though.

There's an outdoor festival just by the other side of the lake where my house is, and tonight it's AFI and Rise Against. I only knew them by names before tonight and I wish it would have stayed that way :sick: Not for me.

Early AFI and early Rise Against were both great. Looking back now, that's hard to believe. :lol: Neither band has been good for well over a decade. Actually, now that I think about it...for nearly 20 years. :lol: Where did my life go?

Damn, I can't believe how excellent Slayer was last night-- probably my favorite set I've seen too from them.

If only they had more lights and pyro... :lol:

Both bands made sure they didn't play anything from their early days.
