Recent favourite albums are all in a black sabbath early years vein.
Baroness- the blue album. Unusually uplifting for a sludge rock album
The Sword - Warp riders. Like a heavy metal version of dune, but better. (Well, better than the film).
Black Space Riders - self titled. Much like the above but with more tone and less riffage.
Heavy but a different kind and worthy of note, Daggers' new one was great, Emmure who just put out the best metalcore album of the year and finally a mention for the much loved but criminally underrated Piebald whos retrospective I finally got my hands on.
More melodic and more "indie" I really liked the Adebisi Shank- this is the second album by a band called adebisi shank album.
I also rediscovered my love of Andrew W K, possibly the best and worst albums ever released but so enjoyable.
If anyone's interested in the albums I'll post the fileshare of them.
as for eminem, what happend to him! his flow and content is sooo so so soooo weak!
he went from
I'm Everlast-ing, I melt Vanilla Ice like silicone
I'm ill enough to just straight up diss you for no reason
I'm colder than snow season when it's twenty below friezing
Flavor with no seasoning, this is the sneak preview
I'll diss your magazine and still won't get a weak review
I'll make your freak leave you, smell the Folgers crystals
This is a lyrical combat, gentlemen hold your pistols
But I form like Voltron and blast you with my shoulder missiles
Slim Shady, Eminem was the old initials (Bye-bye!)
Extortion, snorting, supporting ********
Pathological liar, blowing **** out of proportion
The looniest, zaniest, spontaneous, sporadic
Impulsive thinker, compulsive drinker, addict
Half animal, half man
I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now it's a steel knife in my windpipe
I can't breathe but I still fight while I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right it's like I'm in flight
High off of love, drunk from my hate,
It's like I'm huffing paint and I love it the more I suffer, I suffocate
And right before I'm about to drown, she resuscitates me
She blahblahblahblahing hates me and I love it.
Wait! Where you going?
"I'm leaving you"
No you ain't. Come back we're running right back.
Here we go again
even if you ignore the lyrics, his flow and voice is just not there anymore,
not that im like sayin your taste is poo, just my 2pound 21peeeeee
