• A list of every band ever (vol. 1)

    Apr 4 2014, 21:25 di celer2008

    In November 2009 I had an idea to listen to bands with names beginning with the article A for a whole week. That week turned into two weeks as I found more albums such bands and soon enough it consumed the whole month. It was such a blast listening to these weirdly titled, sometimes quirky, sometimes god-awful bands that I repeated it in 2010, then again in 2011 and 2012 until in the second week of November 2013 I had had enough.
    This is the list of the 960 such bands I had managed to find, listen to and scrobble. The list should be over 1K but for some reason last.fm doesn't show them all in my library. I also have a text file with links to last.fm pages of twice as many more such bands that I haven't gotten around to. When I first started I wished and googled for just such a list but found none. So now, finally, I'm going to post my own.
    In November 2009 when I began this quest I had no idea that there were thousands upon thousands of bands named in this fashion. …
  • Hall of Fame a.k.a. The Great Thank You List a.k.a. Credits

    i just LOVE space music! preferably (but not necessary) black or death metal and sub-genres, blackgaze, ambient etc. So if you know some awesome space music, please share with me, and end up on my Hall of Fame List! ;) I love recommendations! ^^

    This is a feeble attempt to keep track which brilliant new discoveries i got from where, and of course to give some credits where it's due ^^ I know i probably have too much time on my hands on a midsummer sunday evening, but after all i'm just a nerd cleverly disguised as a charming girl :}

    I tried to keep it timely ordered, but it may not be entirely correct. I have only mentioned recommendations i find really worthy while the same person has often recommended more :P I hope i didn't miss anyone? If so, please feel free to remind me. Also, some people might be mentioned who never have recommended me anything personally. This means i have found their music library to be a gold mine and dug out something from there ;)

  • Review: A CLOUD FOREST - Through The Eyes Of The Ambivalent

    A Cloud Forest

    Through The Eyes Of The Ambivalent

    VÖ: Bereits erschienen

    Anarcho Schwarzmetall? Noch immer kommt dieses neue Genre vielen Metalheads mehr als seltsam vor. Allerdings gibt es ihn und er scheint zumindest im untersten Underground tatsächlich Fuß fassen zu können. Denn A Cloud Forest legen mit dem Album "Through The Eyes Of The Ambivalent" nach einer Demo dieses Jahr bereits den zweiten Release vor. Und wie auch schon bei "Don't Stand At My Grave And Weep" regiert auch auf dieser Scheibe atmosphärischer teilweise doomiger Black Metal, der mit Effekten nur so vollgestopft wurde. Die sechs zum Teil überlangen Tracks ('This Dying Heart' dauert allein 12 Minuten!) ziehen sich wie ein Lavastrom und sind sehr ausladend. Da kann es wie beim obengenannten Song schon mal sein, dass unverzerrte Intro-Riffs zwei Minuten vor sich hin wabern bevor es erst richtig losgeht. Das macht den Zugang zum Material für den Otto-Normal-Metaller etwas schwer. …
  • 2010 In Records (Final Edition!) =P

    Hola si.
    Terminó el año, y con el mi ranking.
    Pasé por 349 discos, lo cual me parece una atrocidad.
    Definitivamente voy a escuchar muchos menos este 2011, o algo menos intentaré eso, y probablemente cambie la modalidad del ranking, total a nadie le va a joder mucho.
    Los discos están ordenados de mejor a peor, dividido a su vez en secciones para que la lectura no sea tan imposible.
    Armé dos listas, la de releases comunes y corrientes (?), y la de releases latinos que nadie escucha porque no les tienen fé.
    Las bandas Brasileras y Mexicanas no entran en esta lista de la cual hablo, sinó en la de releases comunes, por razones obvias (?)

    Edit: Los discos en negrita son los que agregué el ultimo mes =D

    Sin más:

    Winrar's (10 to 9.5)
    1.Agalloch - Marrow Of The Spirit [100/100]
    2.Burzum - Belus [100/100]
