preview  Iron Maiden preview  Senjutsu (2021) 50/100    Sep 6, 2021
Senjutsu Ok so I will approach this album by listing how I felt about individual songs. I adore Iron Maiden's classic albums, but it has been a while since I heard anything other than middling LPs from them. Which is a huge bummer.

Also sorry for lack of any cohesion beforehand, because I'm writing this to curb my urge to do anything and everything. If you have problems, please fill my med bottle. Thanks.

Album cover - so, Apple Music says "Eddie, in full samurai regalia was immediately appealing". Bollocks. It is just a poorly rendered 3D model of Eddie. As someone else said, this is some boomer wapanese shit.

1. Senjutsu - There are guitar melodies which are payoffs without any setup. From 5 minute mark and onward they are decent, but before that, those solos are real doozy. You cannot j ... See More
preview  Bring Me the Horizon preview  Post Human: Survival Horror (2020)  [EP] 90/100    Nov 17, 2020
Post Human: Survival Horror As soon as I started the album, 'Dear Diary,' blasted my eardrums off. I got the feeling that it is the most similar to 'Crucify Me'. Nothing is better than biting off a beloved album from their past when a band is in creative cul-de-sac, right? However, after listening to the whole album, I realized that this EP is more respectable than I thought at first.

Yes, this is their attempt at return to the source. Breakdowns in multiple songs, heavier sounds (than amo), and lyrics embodying millennial anger. But let's not reduce this EP to that, since there are a few things BMTH pulled off spectacularly (at least from my point of view).

To start off, it achieves the perfect balance between their recent albums and past albums. There are obvious pop music influences such as enthralling chor ... See More
preview  Metallica preview  Hardwired... to Self-Destruct (2016) 60/100    Feb 22, 2017
Hardwired... to Self-Destruct 며칠 전에 린킨파크의 신곡이 유튜브로 공개되었습니다. 곡명은 Heavy인데 반어인지 뭔지, 별로 Heavy하지는 않습니다. 팬들은 A Place for My Head, No More Sorrow를 원하는데 리드 싱글이랍시고 내놓은 게 Chainsmokers 앨범에나 수록될만한 곡이니 웃긴 일입니다. 앨범마다 크게 변화를 추구했던 밴드가 이제는 시장에서 뒤쳐지지 않으려 구태의연한 팝 음악이나 만드는 밴드가 됐다고 생각이 들 정도에요.

아무튼, 어떤 밴드든 새로운 앨범에서는 자기자신을 지양하려는 노력을 하기 마련입니다. 그러다가 한 번은 변곡점에 도달하게 됩니다. 메탈리카의 Load, 메가데스의 Youthanasia같은 앨범을 예로 들 수 있겠네요. 어 ... See More
preview  Dream Theater preview  Octavarium (2005) 90/100    Aug 12, 2013
Octavarium 2번 트랙과 4번 트랙의 팝스러움, 6번 트랙의 뮤즈스러움 탓인지 유독 말 많은 앨범인 8집 'Octavarium'입니다. DT 빠인 제가 듣기에도 이 앨범은 트랙간의 개연성이 좀 약한데요, 그렇다고 이 앨범이 결코 프로그레시브하지 않다는 건 아닙니다. 오히려 시대를 앞선 음악을 보여준 1, 2집이나 유기성이 매우 강한 3, 5, 7집보다도 더욱 더 프로그레시브하다고 볼 여지가 있습니다.

첫 번째로, 이 앨범은 5, 6, 7집과 묶여서 메타 앨범이라고 언급될 때가 있는데요. 5, 6, 7집의 마지막 트랙은 각각 6, 7, 8집의 첫 번째 트랙과 연결됩니다. 'Finally Free'의 백색 소음이 'The Glass Prison'과 이어지고, 'Losing Time/Grand Finale'의 신스 ... See More
preview  The Who preview  Who's Next (1971) 95/100    Dec 16, 2012
Who's Next 사실 더 후가 우리 나라에서 그리 잘 알려진 밴드는 아니다. 동시대의 밴드이자 같은 브리티시 인베이젼의 선두인 비틀즈는 외국 밴드하면 바로 떠올리는 밴드인데. 하지만 잘 안 알려졌다고 해서 결코 만만하게 봐서는 안 될 음반이다.

1번 곡 Baba O' Riley는 내가 여태까지 들었던 신시사이저 소리 중에서 가장 신선한 소리를 내는 곡이다. 산에 가면 볼 수 있는 계곡들과 같은 흐름을 보이는데, 한 번 귀에 박히면 잊혀지지 않을 것이다. 참고로 이 곡은 내가 좋아하는 미드 NCSI 시리즈 OST로 쓰이기도 했다. 시리즈가 뭐였는지는 잘 기억이 안 난다마는, 확실한 건 다른 시리즈들 곡도 더 후 곡이었다는 것이 ... See More

Iridescent preview  Silent Planet preview  Iridescent (2021) 90/100    Nov 23, 2021
Certainly a super respectable album, and this is coming from someone who doesn't enjoy metalcore that much. Djent element mixes in really well, packing the album with very solid punches.

There's something about the speed of this album that hits the dopamine switch. Can't exactly pinpoint every element, but thunderous vocal flow is certainly one of them. I really love it when the vocal ravishes my eardrums.

No, just no. What is this chorus? What the fuck is that catastrophic pre-chorus? Why the hell this song ends like this? This sucks.

Mezmerize preview  System of a Down preview  Mezmerize (2005) 95/100    Oct 10, 2021
A crazy good Alternative Metal album touched with pretty ridiculous touches from other genres. I mean, I think I can make a musical number out of Question!, or a party dance song out of Radio / Video (probably their Armenian root speaking up). All these hilarity without losing a single bit of heaviness. Every track is notable, but don't miss out on Question! because I think this is even more dope than B.Y.O.B.
In the Court of the Dragon preview  Trivium preview  In the Court of the Dragon (2021) 80/100    Oct 10, 2021
In the Court of the Dragon is the worst track- mixing blunders undermine the quality of this track and the track itself isn't even that good. However, Trivium dishes out some of the best tracks of their career thereafter. Such cuts include A Crisis of Revelation, The Shadow of the Abattoir, and The Phalanx. What really stops me from giving a higher score is that even those songs are not free from production blemishes. (+vocals in the chorus of Feast of Fire is weird)

It seems like either their taste of mixing got significantly worse over time, or they can no longer afford proper sound engineering. The song structure itself is fine, and the insane drum part at the end is remarkable. However, it is mixed like there is a thin veil of plastic wrapping the song itself (and noticeably flat, in addition to that). I only heard this before properly listening to the new album, so this is really worrying.

Storm of the Light's Bane preview  Dissection preview  Storm of the Light's Bane (1995) 100/100    Oct 7, 2021
Black Metal has always been in the backlog of my playlists- These kind of albums are the reason why it will change forever. While reminding me of how old school black metals 'should' feel (quotation because I can't come up with more appropriate word), Dissection laces in an additional layer of melodic guitars. The result is truly magical. Every track is notable, but please listen to Night's Blood if you have no time.
Wake of a Nation preview  Zeal and Ardor preview  Wake of a Nation (2020)  [EP] 85/100    Oct 4, 2021
A well-crafted Black Metal album laced with African-American music. Gospel + soul elements which are found everywhere sets this album apart from ordinary albums. Furthermore, this album is political and anguished at its heart; it came out in 2020, with song titles like Tuskegee and I Can't Breathe. This further strengthens emotional impact of screams, such as the last scream from Tuskegee.
