The Dillinger Escape Plan - One of Us Is the Killer
Yesterday marked the third year of being with the greatest person on this foul earth, along with the release of this album. Win-win situation.
The Haunted - The Flood
Look at what I dug out of the “bands I have long forgotten about” crate: The Dead Eye. This album has always been perfect for a rainy/cloudy/bleak day, so I’m putting it back in my library; the rest of their discography will remain stowed away.
Peter Dolving’s voice, although unconventional even by “metal standards”, has a certain charm to it and the cynicism in his lyrics is always comforting. The music itself creates a surprisingly soothing dark atmosphere that lingers over the listener’s head like an ominous rain cloud for the entire duration of the record. It’s a shame that the releases preceding it and the ones that followed could never reach this level of complexity and depth.
