But, yeah, I liked Now, Diabolical. Satyricon may be selling out, but at least they're still writing good songs IMO. Let's just hope it lasts.
The biggest surprise for me so far this year is how kickass the new Deicide album, The Stench of Redemption is. The Hoffman brothers are out and the new guitarists they got have filled the band with a new life and vigor. If you haven't liked Deicide in quite awhile, I heartily recommend this new one.
The latest Impaled Nazarene album is excellent, although I think I liked the last one, All That You Fear, a bit more.
The new GWAR, Beyond Hell shows the band still in the more straightforward metal phase they've been in since Violence Has Arrived. It kicks thrashy ass, but I do miss their more humor-laden ventures.
I really wouldn't say Satyricon have "sold out". But thats just me.
The new Deicide is pretty solid. When the Hoffman's left, I was very spectical, but Owen and the other dude (name escapes me at the moment) are a perfect fit. Owen ruled in Corpse and he rules in Deicide.
"Pro Patria Finlandia" fucking rules! But it's Impaled Nazarene, so thats to
I'm a big GWAR fanatic, and Beyond Hell is fucking metal! Great shit.
