Didn't I rec these guys to you a while back?

Anyways, good band.

BBH wannabes. If you want good Russian NSBM then get actual BBH or AGD ie Branikald, Forest, Na Rasputje
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!

Branikald is great. Rdjandalir is a beast of an album.

The other two have their moments.

Branikald's best are To Kampf and Stormheit. Na Rasputje were IMO the best band I listed, and Forest can be anywhere from great to complete shit

I liked the track on their myspace, can someone please upload a random assortment of sound bits that might somehow resemble one of their albums and send me a link?

Give me a few minutes and I'll find you some albums of theirs

:/....

Despite the obvious qualities of the bands you mentioned, there's absolutely nothing wrong with Walknut's music. BBH wannabees or not.

Oh and why the **** do people keep lumping them into NSBM? Their members are in some NSBM bands, yes, but Walknut lyrics don't have any national socialism in them at all

+1 To both.

Goddamn I want another album from these guys.

But to keep a possible discussion going, what's everyone's favourite song off the album? It's hard to pick, but I would probably say Grim Woods. Such an immense track.
I can take a road that'll see me through.
#17
Oddly enough the thing i like the most is the drumming which is something i don't normally notice, really liking this band.
#18
This fails for the same reason so many Burzum and Graveland influenced acts seem to fail: all atmosphere, no excitement. There are no high points, no moments of tension, no emotional climaxes. The songs lack any dynamic sensibility and are one-dimensional, and frankly, boring. The riff work is totally conventional and way too predictable: it takes about 15 seconds of listening to pretty much pretty much predict every remaining chord sequence in a song.

They do have a nice distortion sound, however.

So, if you know it's bad, why are you continuing to promote it as if it were good? Isn't that, you know, counterproductive?

i think you might be failing to understand what makes Atmospheric Black Metal


Anyway, I listened again. and I thought it was quite good actually.

Went to order the album. and found a sire doing it for 6 euros, so i thought great, bargin. Aparently I need a minimum order of 20 euros, so i trailed the whole site looking for a few cheap albums i might like. Finally settled on a Menhir and a Temnozor album. registered to the site, and everything. It then informs me they don't ship to the UK

I think you might be failing to understand that a band can be both "atmospheric" and dynamic, which is why Burzum and Graveland were great, while the current crop of "atmospheric" black metal bands serve most usefully as sleep aids.
#23
Burzum is infinitely better then Graveland.
Graveland is one thousand times better then Walknut.

Still not everything needs to be a masterpiece and I enjoy giving Walknut an occasional listen.

Im sorry but Graveland were average at best and hardly dynamic (at least the 4 albums ive heard). and burzum were very hit and miss and hardly that atmospheric in the grand scheme of things .

The band are playing atmospheric black metal, that for me means they should create an atmosphere with their music. which in my opinion (and yours apparently) they do.
#25
Yes but your opinion is far from significant

On the note of giving bands an occasional listen, if I spent my time exclusively listening to bands that blew my mind or were the cream of the goddamned crop, well, the list of bands that I listen to would drop significantly. Plus, the great bands would seem less great.

This band never clicked with me actually, the music just never seems to pick up I guess.
Glance into my eyes
and see the darkest shadows dancing
Playing in the desert of my life
Burning, -
and my soul is descending...



#28
They're pretty good, not my favourite for atmospheric black metal stuff but they're not half bad at all, very generic for this genre but I give them a listen every now and then.

Lin gets it.

As much as I'd love to sit here and bask in the ironic joy of internet fuckdom with Dylar or hangout with the usual suspects, I unfortunately do not want to spend my one day off from work typing nonchalantly on the internet.

Never have I been so glad that San Diego was raining and Archaeology had to take the day off.

they probably could care less about any opinions of this thread. obviously they are not the best band to ever grace the earth, but they write good music without any claims to stardom.

So...

Lots of criticism...

I was expecting a thread of praise...

I was wrong...

Life goes on.

And I still enjoy them thoroughly.

people are faulting them for things Walknut were never intending to do. I mean, the album wasn't even gonna be released originally, yet it has ran through several re-prints because of demand.

for all intents and purposes, they captured a very specific feel; entrancing, windy progressions with an expressive delivery. whatever else people want I just don't know.
