Really getting into Motionless in White. Really liking the newest album.:slightly_smiling_face:

I listened to Tiger Army’s Power of Moonlite for the first time last night and I can’t believe I’ve lived this long without hearing it. I’ve only ever heard Music From Regions Beyond but this is an entirely different level. I didn’t know Davey did guest vocals on many of these songs. “Under Saturn’s Shadow” is fucking incredible. Amazing lyrics. I’ve been wearing the shit out of it all day and still can’t get enough. Incredible…

Anyone else heard of/like the band Ghost? I saw one of their album covers a few months ago and thought they were a metal band at first. I had been meaning to give them a try ever since, because really I’ve found it an impossible feat to find a “newer” band that I like, especially one that claims to be hard rock.

Started listening to this. I was expecting to cringe at the wall of sound overcompression I’m confronted with every single damn time I try to listen to an album recorded in the last decade. All I can say is: thank you Ghost for not compressing the shit out of your shit. Sounds natural. I can hear real instruments all individually!

Otherwise - they’ve got a pretty cool aesthetic and an original sound. Breath of fresh air in an extremely stagnant genre. I don’t know what their more recent albums sound like but this is by far the most listenable for me in recent years outside of a few of my favorite metal bands - whose members are all now in their late 30s/40s.

EDIT - I’m bad at reading through threads before posting. :joy:

Yes! Ghost is amazing. The only new band that has came out in the last decade that isnt nu-metal over produced pop trash.


#150

Yes exactly haha. I watched part of one of their live shows and all I could think was “if Mercyful Fate played Dream Theater”. The vocalist even looks like he could be King Diamond’s bastard son lol. They’re more rock than metal though, definitely avant-garde. I kind of like them.

EDIT - Okay I just watched a live performance of “Rats” and I am fucking sold. What a kick ass band.


#151

As usual…I’m coming back to band that I used to listened in the past :slight_smile: And this time I gladly rediscovered the Dance Hall Crashers…an awesome ska/punk band with two female singers…

Check them out :smiley:

After having OTWL on repeat for a month and seeing Blaqk Audio twice, I’m now searching out more darkwave music.

Currently listening to cold cave for the first time and am enjoying it a lot. Any other recommendations for bands similar to cold cave?


#153

Check out a group called Priest, they’re a dark wave synth trio from sweden. Their album called New Flesh is amazing


#154

Cold Cave has been my favorite band for a few years now. I have always loved Wes’s writing going back to his American Nightmare days and they are incredible live. As for similar type artists, I’d recommend Boy Harsher, Lebanon Hanover, Minuit Machine, Drab Majesty whose a bit more guitar oriented but also fantastic. Another synth darkwave artist i recommend highly is Hante who just put out a great new album recently is touring the states right now.


#155

I’ve also been wanting to get into more dark wave so I appreciate the recommendations.

I tend to listen to one or two things over and over until I’m done and repeat the cycle with another band. Been in the mood for hardcore for the first time in awhile and have had Gorilla Biscuits and Rival Mob on repeat.


#156

I’ve been listening to the Sisters of Mercy First and Last and Always notstop since last weekend. In general I prefer heavier and and more guitar-driven stuff but so many of my favorite bands were influenced by that album.

The only bad(?) thing now is “No Time to Cry” has been stuck in my head all day. And I mean ALL DAY.

No no no no time for heartache no no no no time to run and hide…


#157

I wore out Storm - such a deep techno album.


#158

I really liked his voice. I liked VNV nation, but VNV was more "selective " songs I liked. Assemblage I could tear into the full disc.


#159

Man, I’ve really been enjoying this debut album from Idle Hands.
