I'm impressed too. M took a bit of time to grow on me, but I like this one a lot right away.

Good first impressions here, even RYM seems to like this one.



I feel like her dark folk side is more prominent here so it's actually even less of a pure metal album than M was, but it works for me. There are some stronger doom metal elements too, especially in the track Funeral which features Chelsea Wolfe.

I have got to keep up more with Symphonic metal.

I just found out about two very cool bands. Scardust, from Israel, released a full-length album in August (mp3 only Cry ) and their couple of videos from their 2015 ep on youtube, they sound excellent, and not your typical symphonic metal.

Then I discovered a band out of Boston called Seven Spires, they also released an album in August. The gal singing has a killer set of pipes, and they also have a quite unusual sound to them, based on the couple of videos I've watched.

Both bands aren't weird by any means, but they do go above and beyond the typical Nightwish-type style you hear from so many symphonic metal bands with female singers.

He's not left Avatarium. It's probably just a badly worded sticker.

I have a question regarding Soen & Avatarium.

I just picked up the newest Soen cd, and there was a sticker on it saying 'ex-members of Opeth, Amon Amarth, and Avatarium'.

Now, I know that Martin Lopez played in both Opeth and Amon Amarth. Marcus Jidell is the guy from Avatarium...is he now an "ex-member" of Avatarium?!?! I certainly hope not.

2017 albums I've enjoyed so far are:

Immolation - Atonement
Iced Earth - Incorruptible

and that's about it! I really can't think of anyone else, either because I haven't checked out that many 2017 releases or I just have an incredibly bad memory.

Stormspell Records was nice enough to send me digital sneak peeks of their Fall 2017 releases, so I've got a bunch of new stuff to plow thru for my blog:

Blazon Stone - Down in the Dark
Fire Strike - Slaves of Fate
Numenor - Chronicles
Yuri Fulone - Your Kingdom Will Fall 
Stereo Nasty - Twisting the Blade
Palantir - Lost Between Dimensions

Immolation - Atonement (pretty good but too hooky for Immolation)
Fen - Winter (listened a little bit, not ready to form an opinion)
Dying Fetus - Wrong One to Fuck With (good shit, kicks ass)
Cormorant - Diaspora (again, not ready to form an opinion but I love what these guys did in the past)
Cloak of Altering - ​I Reached For The ​​Light That Drowned In Your Mouth (great)

That's it when it comes to metal, I listen to a lot of non-metal stuff lately, hence the laughable list.

EDIT: Ah, I forgot about Elder - Reflections of a Floating World! Awesome stoner doom with a prog edge to it, recommended. 

EDIT2: Ah, and Pallbearer - Heartless. Pretty good, not crazy about it.

EDIT3: Ah, and of course the new Mastodon - Waste of Time. Yeah, a waste of time.

EDIT4: Fuck me if I didn't listen to the new Havok album - Conformicide. Preatty kick ass thrash metal album, but when it comes to the new wave thrash, Vektor still rules.

How is the new Wintersun?

None of my local or mall record stores had the cd today, so I had to order it online, should be here next week sometime.

Off the top of my head I think the only 2017 releases I've heard have been Overkill and Body Count. (I like them both just fine, for whatever that's worth.) 
I will have to look closer at the other bands/albums mentioned in this thread to see what else is out there that might be up my alley...
