Not much time now and will add more for you when I have some more time to do so but here is a start:
I hope you hve a spotify account and don’t need to watch on youtube but will give them in youtube links as that is most easy to do.
Electric Wizard, Dopethrone.
One of the classic albums in this genre and a need to listen when trying something out of the ordinary. Officially a Doom band but I don’t think the genre label fits for this album.
Cult of luna and Julie Christmas, Mariner.
I could have picked more albums, Somewhere aong the highway or Vertical I and II but this one is special as the Swedish post metal band (with 2 drummers even on live performances) have made a collaboration with Julie Christmas. They made this on a distance as they do not live close. Sending audio files back and forth and adding both to the songs till this masterpiece came to live. Julie is normaly not into this heavy things but is complementing the sound of the band perfeclty. In these time of social distancing it could be done again to make an abum in this way, everybody adding things to a song and recoring each part (drums, guitars, vocals and so on).
I seriously don’t know what album to suggest to you but what more does anybody need than rum infested drinking songs about pirates. Is there anything else that you need to make you smile?
Great and very strong lyrics: … with an anchor but nothing too serious.
So I just added a live performance that I have been too see IRL to give some idea.
Amenra, Mass VI.
Not for the faint of heart these Belgians know what it is to get under your skin. They also have some unplugged versions that you also might check out. For many people Amenra is a religion, the try to help you cope with all sorts of mess in life and mainly go about pain, death and coping with it. Has helped me in many times to get my mind back into the right mind. When my aunt died we had a show of them in the acoustic version planned on that day in the evening in a church (metal band in a church??? Yes it can be done). Have been crying all concert long as it moved to the bone that night. Every song just pierced my hart and thoughts.
I just added the most recent album, special attention for a Solitary reign as this is their masterpiece on this album. You might check the liver perfomance in AB Brussel but please keep in mind this is 18+ and serious to watch. This is the album release for the album below.
Don’t seem to be able to find guidance or Blood year as an album on youtube so no linkie linkie here.
Named after the repetitive turning of circles the russian icehockey skaters did in practice. This is some stoner music with repetative loops and circles in it that you need to enjoy calmy or in a liver performance.
Pijn and Conjurer, Curse these metal hands.
Both bands alone I don’t like too much but combined… Oh wow!
They first worked together on Roadburn festival for a commisioned piece and now made this alblum. It’s a short one but sit back and relax!
As already stated, I will update when I have some more time.
There is more to come
