Man, I'm still trying to wrap my head around that To-Mera album...

It's bizarre fucking shit, isn't it? Not really my kind of thing, but it's definitely out there.... My favorites in this post were probably the Hellhammer, Darsombra (amazing! music and artwork!), and Cry Blood Apache, and John 3:16 discs. I'm starting to get a little bit burned out on the Candlelight / SPV axis -- they put out so much goddamn stuff! -- although I was stoked to receive in the mail today the SPV double-disc of Kreator live in somewhere (I forget). Although I'm peeved about that one, too, because they sent it without the booklet. Why is it that the discs I'm absolutely, definitely going to keep are the ones they send incomplete? It makes me want to pull my hair out, except my hair is way too short for such madness now....

I obtained the To-Mera on the recommendation of a younger LJer. Not really my kind of thing either, but I have to admit that were I still 17 I would probably listen to it again and again until all the time changes made sense.

I'll have to go back and read the post through - I was in a hurry and skimmed for familiar things...

I'll say this: The dYse album took me by surprise. It has a goofy cover and I didn't expect much from it, but it's bizarre -- a weird combination of angular math rock, proto-jazz, and hardcore that appears to be less a deliberate attempt at being weird and tricky (which is how I view most math-rock bands, who kind of bore me because while they're technically proficient in everything, they're also trying too hard) than the result of some really perverse personalities. Oh, and the Hellhammer demo reissue is great, assuming you're down with Hellhammer and okay with poorly-recorded primitivism.
