🌶️ Immolation - Acts of God (death from the USA
There’s a good chance that you, reader, are more familiar with this classic death metal band than I am. Why? I just never really got into them - even though I love a lot of bands that were influenced by Immolation. Who knows why some classic albums or bands roll by your life without good reason? Just can’t listen to everything I guess. Anyway, I’m totally on board with them on this one, record number eleven. Just in time! It’s dark and brooding and it feels like they can lash out at you at any moment. Good stuff.
Let’s be honest: this Star One album is more Ayreon than the last Ayreon was. I liked the theatrical Transitus, don’t get me wrong, but Mr. Lucassen was originally going to make that into something else. When that failed he made it into Ayreon (I’ve interviewed the absolutely lovely Arjen about it, read here in Dutch) to still get something out of the project. Fine fine. But here we are with a new Star One, and what do you know: this is the grandeur, the impressiveness, the artwork, the synthecheesers, the big guest names, goddamnit, this is Ayreon! It goes to show it doesn’t really matter what Lucassen names it, it’ll rock.
There is more: Annihilator (thrash from Canada), Pike Vs the Automaton (sludge/stoner/doom from the USA - Sleep’s Matt Pike project), Crimson Throne (black/ambient from the UK), a split from Sadness & Unreqvited (🌶️ post/atmospheric black metal/blackgaze from the USA & Canada) Arð (d0om from the UK - solo project from a Winterfylleth member), Pure Wrath (atmoblack from Indonesia), Buñuel (avantgarde/post-punk/noise? from Italy/USA - with, among others, the singer from Oxbow), An Isolated Mind (avantgarde black/death from the USA), Urushiol (experimental death from the USA - solo project from Alexander DeMaria, from Yellow Eyes, Anicon), a collaboration from Déhà & Marla van Horn (death/doom from Belgium), Sickbay (death from the USA) and The Devils of Loudun (🌶️ symphonic/melodic death from the USA).
