We present You our two top lists. Top 10 albums of year 2014. Enjoy listening and feel free to leave some thoughts!
– Rimmon & Witness To The Void
2013 was a very solid year for technical music. However, that was yesteryear, and here at TDM.com we are already looking for new ways to scramble our brains, mentally and physically, in 2014. Here are some of the records I am most looking forward to mathing my face off with in the first quarter:
Origin – Omnipresent [Date TBA, Nuclear Blast Records]
Although 2012’s Entity didn’t garner the pangalactic praise of 2009’s Antithesis, the re-fortified quartet shows no sign of hanging up their brooms or powershredders. At the time of posting, Origin had just finished recording the new album. No doubt the over-the-top technicality will cause us to stare into the abyss and reflect on the human condition, and its insignificance, as it has in years past.
Techdeath titans Origin have announced, via Facebook, that guitar tracks are currently in the works for their sixth full-length Omnipresent. After the expulsion of fury that was 2011’s Entity, the death metal world is eagerly awaiting, yet simultaneously unprepared for, the cosmic destruction set to be released sometime in 2014 via Nuclear Blast (pun intended). As a point of further interest, this record will be the first to feature new vocalist Jason Keyser; death metal fans may recall his past work with Skinless on Trample the Weak, Hurdle the Dead.
Here is the original post:
And I have to say, with my bias completely acknowledged, Origin has the most interesting Facebook page of any band I can think of.
…Hail Technical Death Metal!
In the deepest recesses of space, the furthest corners of nonesxistance, there pass few travelers. From this void, from this infinite plane of nothing, comes a voyager with a commentary of the cosmic kind. Messages from beyond the veil… messages of cosmic technical death metal. Here are the words of the witness, the Witness to the Void, of the alien races heard on each album.
This secondary alien chronicles are of three beings that possibly threaten the existence of man. The first, a relentless crusher of human bones… the second, a galactic destroyer set on the destruction of man… the third, a reptilian invader through somewhat more subtle, but no less destructive, means… Continue reading Technical Tuesday – The Alien Chronicles (Part II)
I’ve seen a great number of people nowadays confusing the term “breakdown” with “open-note chugging”. Now, all the deathcore/metalcore fans drool over them, while death metal fans hate them. Now that, if you ask me, is wrong. Here are my top 25 songs that gave better, brutal meaning to the term. The order doesn’t count for anything here, this is mostly a list of my favourites rather than any kind of ordering. All of these are good, and that’s what matters.
