Album of the Week

Let's do a forum album thread where someone picks an album a week, and everyone listens to it and talks about it there.

And let's start simple. The idea isn't to introduce new albums right away, but to just listen to the same album at (around) the same time.


Not too complicated.

Current players are:
Quote:
Emenius Sleepus
Kytokinesis
severed-metal
Hoodoo Man
Helloween4Ever
Ironic Maiden
Kevätuhri
Metal_Head1
The_Blode
The Virtuoso
progbass


Anyone else who wants on the list, just drop a comment here. I'll randomize the list to make the order and we can get rolling.

It's like a book club, but heavy metal.

Once everybody's picked an album, we can pick up any other people that want to join on the list, and keep going until the thread dies.


EDIT:

HERE'S THE ORDER
  1. Kytokinesis
  2. Hoodoo Man
  3. The Virtuoso
  4. severed-metal
  5. The_Blode
  6. Emenius Sleepus
  7. Helloween4Ever
  8. Metal_Head1
  9. progbass
  10. Kevätuhri
  11. Ironic Maiden

All right, it's looking good.

All subgenres are okay, by the way? As long as it's not djent or something.

Yeah, anything appropriate. If it lasts long enough to branch out, it doesn't have to maintain strictly metal focus either.

There is a spirit of what is UgMetal approved - like when Soft Cell was championed for the Sleaze (I think) category in the Your Move tournament and won (I think).

That's a tough one. I've always listened to music I felt was honest, to my ears at least. It's usually something unique.

but in the case of Soft Cell, it had all the requirements within the context and post-punk/darwave/80s electronic whatever you wanna call it is well-received around here anyways.

I doubt you'll get many to listen to Katy Perry's latest. At least around here. Not really about elitism as much as it is about it simply not having any connection with anyone here.


Of course, just go with something honest to you I think. That doesn't mean it's going to guarantee others are going to like it though.

I feel like non-metal music that has the best chance if you want to take the risk are:
Progressive Rock
Post-punk
Ambient/Dark Wave
some Post Rock
Electronic
Shoegaze
Drone
stuff like Amebix

Updated the list.

I'll post the order on Friday, and the first person can post their album Sunday.

Yeah sure, we can do the whole thing in this thread. Album introductions and discussion.

Woo. It has begun.

It's pretty late in Finland at the moment so I might not be able to listen to it today, but I'll surely join the discussion tomorrow. I did listen it for a little bit, and it's looking good. I like the melancholic feel a lot.

First impression of the album (never heard it before) is pretty rad, but I'm not crazy about the Day Tripper cover, and I feel like Shadows of the Past has a pretty sick buildup that doesn't really go anywhere.

Other than that, though it's pretty killer. Yesterday's Children and The Child are sick tracks. Feels nearly identical to Maiden's first album in a few parts, which isn't a bad thing. The bass sticks out to me in a few areas throughout the album, and I love it.

This album has stared me in the face since I began listening to metal. It really won't leave me alone and now I have to face it.
