I'm finally going to see GHOST this month...
RIP Defeatist...They've been done for a while but still one of the tightest grind bands I've seen
Also Inquisition's newest album has been on my constant playlist since it came out
Been enjoying that new Inquisition album lately myself. I'm selling some maryland deathfest tickets if anyone's interested, looking to get rid of a 3 day lot pass, 3 day soundstage, and Friday+Sunday rams head. Pm if interested.
Apparently I've been sleeping on Sun Worship for way too long
and I assume everyone's found the new Agalloch by now...

Had not. Thanks for the link.
They're actually touring this summer, as well. If you like them at all I would recommend it. It helps that I saw them at venues with soundmen that get it, but they do atmosphere really well.
Not this exact thread, but close enough...
That fest looks dope. Seeing these guys in a few hours.
Young dudes fucking crushing death
Tragedy is my jam.
interesting read, I could give a fuck about Dragonforce, so I like them getting some bad press.
Always been a fan of Dragonforce, they're quintessential power metal as far as I'm concerned, but I don't like anything after Inhuman Rampage and even that was going downhill. At least to me, Demoniac was always an obvious over the top joke band, not sure why anyone felt the need to critically analyze their subject matter. I mean she feels the need to call them out for the seig heil on Myths of Metal but ignores the tongue in cheek line right before it: "Hitler Metal want to bang my fucking head And fist the living dead in the middle of the night alright", let alone the lyrics to the rest of the song. Moreover, this is the chorus of Kill All the Faggots: "We will kill all the faggots and queer cunts. We will wipe out the gays and the fags. We will fuck the children up the ass, shit everywhere 'cause Demoniac will rape the old fags." So they're displaying their homophobia by saying they'll rape children and gay people? Really? Isn't it infinitely more likely that they were intentionally making ridiculous songs w/ "edgy" subject matter? Why does she seem so skeptical of their response that it was in jest? Not to mention lyrics of that nature can be found on basically any gore/porno grind recording ever. But no, it's better to "confront" them about their "racist, homophobic past" because ya know, the children might be influenced by their irresponsible spreading of hatred. Also black metal has a nazi problem like it has an anti-christian problem. Far be it from me to suggest we shouldn't be evaluating the moral fortitude of people who paint their faces, cover themselves in blood and scream about hatred. Who cares what views those people hold, if you like the music listen to it, if not, don't, but don't go on the internet and rant and rave about how people shouldn't listen to something because the guy who made it is an idiot.
Some contributions for the wall of text:
Swallowed - full length out in October I think, much anticipated
Discordia - live recording, one of my favorite NY bands
Dweller in the Valley - relatively new Baltimore band, promising
Vilkacis - guy from Ruin Lust, more of the same in that style but still good
Bethlehem - Dictius... full album, one of the best vocal performances in black metal
I just saw these guys a few weeks ago along with Hell Militia (ex-Bethlehem members):
Cytotoxin is basically my favourite band in Death Metal and they finally managed to find a new guitarist to fill the vacancy caused by VT's injury. So there's some hope for a new album at last.
Gotta love Dimmu Borgir! Metal heads are the only ones who can laugh at their own music, haha.
I was pleasantly surprised when I found this. The last I heard of JFAC they were doing some super wack deathcore shit. This is more progressive/technical. Decent stuff.
