Music Thread.
I thought a trio of themed threads about other entertainment media might be good. If you're not interested, please just ignore the thread and pick some threads that interest you from here:

Anyway, discuss music...

Nile - In Their Darkened Shrines 
I havent heard that one... I enjoyed Black Seeds of Vengeance, and Amongst the Catacombs of the Nephren Ka was okay, not as good as BSofV in my opinion, but track 5 Ramses Bringer of War is nice in that the opening is reminiscent of the war ships in Mario3 =)

How does In Their Darkened Shrines compare to BSoV and Nephren Ka ? 
try slipknot 
Igi-Nu Do-A-Hul Igi-Se-Zid-Gin 
I haven't heard the entirety of either of their two previous albumns, but it is my understanding that in terms of overall style, ITDS is much more furious and intense.

Other recommendations
Morbid Angel - Formulas Fatal to the Flesh
Hate Eternal - King of all Kings
God Dethroned - Ravenous 
i like the good ol normal metal. with at least some melody and music involved.

mind you, i am guilty of making dance music with rather little melody and a lot of beats...

anyone a fan of megadeth? 
i was crazy megadeth fanatic back in 88-90
"so far, so good, so what..." was and is my fave megadeth cd! :)
their later stuff didn't impress me much since i switched to more brutal things like black metal, etc... 
Thanks for the suggestion of Nile, I've heard several tracks on John Peel but they didn't quite grab me, I respect what they do but....I'm not so sure about the archaic vibe.

Anyway today I got Arch Enemy and Bezerker. Not listened to them all but so far:

AE - good strong melodies and pace, but lacking bass, also growly vocals don't go so well with melodic leads.

Bezerker - haphazard and mindless noise, little rhythm and the guitars get lost in all the sloppy beats.

Von: Naaaa,I'd rather have something a bit more....less nu-metal. Anything else you can think of?? 
well, i can only recommend my current favourite metal bands: type o negative, fear factory, cathedral, my dying bride. these, plus some black metal bands are ones i only listen to these days.
btw, there will be new type o album released june 16th :) can't wait for it. 
I've not heard of nearly any of the bands you mention.

Recently I've bought:

Cold: 13 Ways to Bleed On Stage
Frank Sinatra: 2 Cd collection
Taproot: Welcome
Nine Inch Nails: The Downward Spiral
Lennon Murphy: 5:30 Saturday Morning
Primus: Pork Soda
Korn: Life Is Peachy 
Some Others For Shambler 
Satyricon - Volcano
Enslaved - Frost

These two bands are more black metal than death metal, but still definetly worth your time. 
volcano sucks, this is their worst cd, it's better to get their old stuff like 'the shadowthrone' 
But not into black really. I appreciate but not my style, I prefer something crunchier, bassier, maybe more industrial.

Will think about FF... 
Although i do believe the Shadowthrone is their finest acheivement, Volcano is the closest they've come to a more tradiotional sounding metal, so i thought it would be more interesting to someone not attenuated to black metal. 
uhm, yeah

and score some bitchin review at

your welcome grahf 
thanks for the links blackpope, I'll check 'em out.

Thanks to Vondur for posting those dark ambient links as well, I need more of that stuff. 
Dark Ambient 
If you haven't already, try Thomas Koner and Yen Pox. Both rather minimal (the former especially so), but probably worth a listen. 
Dark Ambient 
Biosphere, anyone?? 
Shambler And Nb 
biosphere isn't dark ambient, it's just ambient.
it's ice ambient i'd say, there is no dark side in that project. :)

as for the thomas koner and yen pox, they are classic, add there troum yet, the same dark tasty drones... 

Go NZ Music! 
NZ Music... 
Concord Dawn, Shapeshifter & PMoney. That's about it as far as I'm concerned. Okay, Salmonella Dub are good if you like that sort of thing and 8' Sativa well the music's good but the attitude is tedious.

P.S. Sorry Von I don't really know much about ambient. The record shop dude called Biosphere "drone and tone" which sounded cool =)
