    Airbus Gate. Another autocorrect fail. Sounds like the producers of airport Muzak...

    Clearly meant Anubis Gate.

    Saw A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors earlier on Syfy, and had to listen to Dokken's Back for the freakin' Attack.

    Still haven't gotten around to listening Silence. I think Crusade is my least favorite though.

    in waves is by far their worst album imo. It sounded like a shittier version of chevelle. it was so stripped back and basic that it's a slog to listen to. Crusade at least has some good songs like tread the floods or silence will sear.

    Lately I've been listening to a lot of songwriter artists, last year's albums from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Bon Iver were mindblowing and that trend kind of carried into this year's search for new music as well. An old school buddy of mine, Mikko Joensuu suddenly came up with this ridiculously massive album trilogy "Amen" about relinquishing personal faith and congregation he grew up very tightly with, overcoming the subsequent depression and ultimately redefining his identity.

    Musically it's in the vein of contemporary folk, country (Thomas van Zandt has been popping up in almost all rave reviews), elegantly simple Finnish gospel / traditional music but as the montage progressess he also wanders through territories not unlike British pop music or dark ambient. Every time I start listening to this trilogy I lose my sense of time and place and blow through its entire duration of 3+ hours. The third installment to this album trilogy is particularly amazing.

    So here's a Spotify playlist for all the three albums combined:

    I'm listening to something I thought I'd never listen too - The Grateful Dead, but more specifically Dead and Company.

    whoops, meant to say it sounds like a shittier version of the crusade or ascendancy.

    Ok so I don't want to sound like a "Johnny come lately" .. but I've never really peeped out Meshuggah before.. and I started listening to a few of their tracks, and they are pretty brutal. I've enjoyed various Metal for quite some time (I use the high level term Metal instead of degrading myself by adding a sub-category like "Technical Farm Metal" or what have you) but never really checked them out. What is the cornerstone Meshuggah album I should listen to in its entirety?

    I like their first two albums plus the EP they did around this time, but I'm not really a Meshuggah fan.

    Yeah don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I'm losing my mind because of how it's redefining my reality or anything, but I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and some of it's pretty cool. I'll peep out their first album I guess :) Thanks for the tip,
    I also have loved every Lynch Mob album. George Lynch makes good music.

    George makes music, period. He's not like the rest of these hasbeens who have ceased to be productive and rest solely on their past.

    Early formative post-thrash sound: NONE EP, then if you like that -> Destroy Erase Improve if you like that and want more early trash sound -> Contradictions Collapse

    Mid era math-metal, progressive post-thrash: Chaosphere -> Nothing or ReNothing -> Catch 33 -> I

    Late "Djent" Obzen -> Koloss -> Violent Sleep of Reason

    Listen to these first:
    None, Chaosphere, Nothing/ReNothing, Catch 33, Obzen

    Don't really skip these but they aren't as essential:
    Koloss, Destroy Erase Improve

    Really brutal and awesome but you need to be patient and in the mood for it:
    I

    Eh, sleep on:
    Violent Sleep of Reason, Contradictions Collapse

    Nothing/ReNothing?: Nothing was recorded originally with 7s then rerecorded with 8s and subjectively different production. I personally think ReNothing is brutal as fuck sounding and is the better production.

    SUPER RECOMMENDED VIEWING

    I've been listening to more Lynch Mob. Probably going to listen to KXM and Shadow Train later. George Lynch is extremely underrated as a musician and songwriter, and his musical output in just the last 3 years has been insane. Sick and tired of lazy, tired, creatively bankrupt "heritage" acts who rarely put out music, and go on tour after tour resting on their past. Fuck nostalgia acts -- and yes, this abso-fucking-lutely includes KISS 110%.

    Either put up [ie, release music] or shut the FUCK up [ie, retire.] As Frank Zappa said, shut up and play your guitar, but he didn't mean by resting on your laurels and stagnating.

    Meshuggah...I prefer the older thrashy stuff.. The early albums are awesome and 'Destroy Erase Improve' is on my list of masterpiece albums.
