Ghost - Cirice

A good album, but I've finally reconciled myself to the fact that they will never rise to the level of their debut album again.

Any other time I could name ten different bands for you to try, but lately I've had nothing but doom and gothic tinged metal on my brain.  I don't think that would scratch this particular itch.

Maybe look into some modern Enslaved?  I know they've been around for a billion years so they're as big as niche metal bands ever get, but they fit most of your other criteria.

  • Two singers:  their original black metal shrieker and a guy that sounds a lot like David Gilmour.  The contrast is like night and day.
  • Fast as fuck overall, but...
  • Their songwriting is complex, with tempo changes all over the places.
  • They're technically impeccable; they manage to push the envelope without devolving into prog wankery.

Try something like this first.  If nothing else, it'll narrow the field a bit. :P

I'm bored as fuck with modern gaming at the moment, so I decided to buy Persona 2:  Innocent Sin on my Vita.  It's not bad so far, but it seems a little easier than I remember Eternal Punishment being.  I'm probably just remembering wrong.

Can't wait to fight Hitler.

Lucifer - Purple Pyramid

Proper fucking doom right there, man.

Good job finishing this three and a half years after I suggested it, by the way.

Bal-Sagoth - Of Carnage And A Gathering Of Wolves

Almost too epic.  Now I want to go burn down a village.

This is a heartwarming thing to read, Dagg.

I thought you were mandated by law to stay away from young children.

Paradise Lost - Return to the Sun

So melodic, so grim, so fucking everything I love.

Arcturus - Warp

This has been a great year for high-quality metal.

I'm getting breast implant surgery on Monday as well, so I hope I'm high enough on painkillers that I hallucinate the existence of Morrowind 2:  The Morrowinding.

Paradise Lost - Victim of the Past

"The Plague Within" is definitely my album of the year so far.

This is the greatest necro bump in the history of the boards.

Dune, eh? Good luck with it.  I thought the first one was OK, but hated the second, so I stopped there.

Yeah, I've heard that the series was not very good after the first book, so I'm only going to read the first book in the series and leave it at that.

No no no no no.  While it's true that the original is pretty much the best in the series, there's some pretty interesting ideas explored in most of the sequels.  "God Emperor of Dune" is one of my favorite books just because of how fucking odd it is.

You can definitely stop after that one, though. :P
