afterstasis;3627004 said:speaking of this, should i overhaul the "RiYL" section?it can sometimes be a bit messy since i'm not totally sure what everyone is familiar with already and i don't want to waste slots with unknowns, but i also don't want it 100% watered down to "this band is the same genre but honestly don't really sound anything alike".
afterstasis;3625764 said:Olc Sinnsir - The Throne Of Dead EmotionsGenre: Black MetalYear: 2003Straightforward raw black metal from France, hateful and slightly thrashier than you may expect.Recommended If You Like: Darkthrone, Mutiilation, Vlad Tepes, Carpathian Forest, Antaeus, and Katharsis.Sample a few tracks on myspace.
afterstasis;3627657 said:Lansing-Dreiden - The Dividing IslandGenre: New Wave/Art RockYear: 2006Dreamy without relying on endlessly reverberating guitars or whispered vocals, funky without relying on heavy bass, and quite varied from song to song without relying on blatant genre-hopping from track to track (despite the bizarre metal influence in the last track).Listening back to this I'm still disappointed that this album didn't totally blow up, particularly with how similar a lot of the tracks sound like a more developed and less gimmicky version of chillwave and this is a more cohesive and interesting approach to revitalizing 80's synthpop.Recommended If You Like: Tears For Fears, OMD, Moose, Neon Indian, Toro y Moi, and The Chameleons.Sample two tracks on purevolume.
