Archspire sounds like a dollar store Spawn Of Possession, similar ingredients but lacking the original flavorThe current modern tech death scene of bands like Revocation, Inferi, Archspire et all does nothing for me. On paper they should appeal, but I find nothing that sticks or has any sort of staying power.
Gonna have to explain this one. Archspire and spawn sound nothing alike to me other than having some fast technical riffs.Archspire sounds like a dollar store Spawn Of Possession, similar ingredients but lacking the original flavor
I agree, but when it sounds like a guitar pro file because there are 64th note blast beats at 200 bpm it does not make for a spicy salad.I like riff salad as long as the ingredients are spicy enough.
I'll agree with that. Doesn't stop me from watching Dean and toby live work some wizardry with their pickup switching game. Seriously, watching the amount of times they switch pickups in Doppelganger is insane.I've listened to some of Dean Lamb's playthroughs, and their bassist also has a YT page where he includes some breakdowns, I think the biggest crux of AS is that the drummer seems to have no restraint; he's just "Oops, all blast beats for the entire song, every song" whereas if you dial it back when the guitar is going HAM or go HAM when some of the other instruments are doing 1/8th or 1/16th note runs, it greatly changes the dynamic and is inherently more interesting.
No one can riff salad and make it a song as well as Dave Mustaine did, especially on Peace Sells.I like riff salad as long as the ingredients are spicy enough.
He'll yeah! Peace Salad- and I'm buyin'No one can riff salad and make it a song as well as Dave Mustaine did, especially on Peace Sells.
Fixed. The angsty 11 year old-esque lyrics sore at the world fit with that style he's been stanning, too. Not that it's something to celebrate, but it is there just the same.Mustaine singing through his clenched teeth gets a yikes hard pass
Entheos writes some of the most boring and uninspired tech death I've ever heard, and that's saying something.
It's a shame because Travis is a great player, and I wanted to see him put out some cool tech death stuff. Malcolm is a monster player and writer, I love his stuff in Inferi.Those ultra-cool Jacksons deserve better. No doubt. Good thing Malcom Pugh didn't stay and went on to make a kickass band instead.
I like the video reviewers who don’t mind conveying their ambivalence about a piece of gear, or at least are realistic about the balance of pros and cons. It seems like most people are quick to decide between fawning praise and absolute condemnation, and it blinds them to nuance and perspective.Gear review videos are boring and are just dime-a-dozen, at this point. Same type of things can be said with superstrats especially in the 7 string category and up.
This, regarding everything. Every topic is sports now.It seems like most people are quick to decide between fawning praise and absolute condemnation, and it blinds them to nuance and perspective.
