Just gonna put it out there, Sleigh Bell's 'Treats' is the best album of the year.

I really thought the demo was a lot more interesting than their final release.

Not that Sleigh Bells was terrible or anything, but if that's your favourite release of the year, you're missing out.

To each his own, but I don't feel like delving into the uttermost depths of musical releases to find stuff.

That made me sound really narrow-minded and boring, but eh.

oh man the new Pains of being Pure at Heart single is fantastic

I'm tempted to listen, seeing that you say fantastic..but tPoBPaH bore the life out of me.

This Agalloch album is my favourite of the year so far.
I'm saving it for the 23rd. Gonna go driving and either find a good spot to walk or just drive through the mountains while listening to it. Proper listening environment is vital.

I fully support this because it is definitely worth it. I've never heard an Agalloch album with such atmosphere. I was playing Morrowind last night while I listened to it, haha - I was whisked away into its world because of it.

I like "Beach Girls" better than "Kids," but "Rill Rill" is a definite improvement over "Ring Ring."

I think people are confusing "more interesting" with "better".

Elaboration: I liked the album okay, but ultimately it was a bunch of songs that struck me as really similar (this was driven home by seeing them live), and a bit repetitive. I thought this worked all right on the demo, but I got bored of the album pretty quickly.

Swiss doom band have released their new album Heliogabalus as a free download.  It is a single 70 minute song

I am only about 20 minutes into it, but it's pretty rad so far

Edit: Also the band is called Rorcal  :psyduck:

Deathspell Omega's new album finally ended up in the Season of Mist press pool, here are my first impressions:

There are actual dynamics!  Fas was a two-note album, you had your ROOOOAAAR mode and then your completely quiet mode, that is not the case here.  Songs get quieter/louder gradually and don't just cut off abruptly.  Though this probably has something to do with Paracletus being intended to be a single continuous track, good on them in any case.

Mikko Aspa's vocals, while very distinctive, tend to be pretty one-note.  The dude has put in the effort to shake things up a bit, which is always a good thing for black metal vocalists to do.

The guitars are much more audible than they were on Fas.  The mix on their previous full-length was pretty insane, with a bottomless bottom-end and drums pushed way way up.  On Paracletus, there is less murk and the drums are toned down to be less punishing.  I suppose this makes sense, when taking into account the themes of the music.  Fas was all about divine punishment, and while I don't have a great idea of what Paracletus is supposed to be about, I read the word itself is Greek for 'comfortor,' and is often used to refer to the Holy Sp--oh I guess now I am one of those guys that over-analyzes Deathspell's lyrical themes now goodie

Oh, and what would be a shrinking of bottom-end caused by the shrinking of murk is offset by an incredibly loud bass.  Which suits me just fine.

What I was trying to say is I like it despite my usual distaste for extreme metal vocal styles.  I think I'm starting to 'get' metal now though which is nice.

Really? I mean, I haven't heard the whole thing (I'm only downloading it if I can't get it on release day, and I'll only download it on the 22nd at earliest, so I can listen on the 23rd), but The Watcher's Monolith reminded me of The Wilderness and This Old Cabin, which are some of the most metal songs they have done. They Escaped The Weight Of Darkness (or whichever one it was that is on Viva Hate's website) seemed less metal, but I haven't listened to it as many times. It isn't as catchy, it reminds me more of some of The Mantle. Maybe The Hawthorne Passage, or I Am The Wooden Doors.

I'm a bit late to the party but I finally got around to listening to the Monitor by Titus Andronicus and okay, fuck yeah. It's not often that a straight-up guitar-bass-drums rock 'n' roll record can sustain my interest for more than an hour but I can't wait to listen to it again and again and again.

Agreed. Call this heresy but it made a far more immediate impact than Dopethrone. The best parts of Black Masses don't match those of Dopethrone's but I find it more consistent overall.
