totally. their EP is good too. but frigid stars will always be the best for me because it was the favorite album of the only girl i've ever really loved. we spent an entire summer gradually breaking up, and i remember that the last time i went to see her, i came into her house and she had just put it on. we listened to the album in silence lying in her bed, and then we spent the rest of the day crying and staring at each other and not believing that we were finally through. a year later, we're starting to be friends again, and listening to frigid stars fills me with nostalgia but not hopelessness.

Sólstafir - Masterpiece of Bitterness



Progressive black metal(from Iceland!) with elements of post-rock, hardcore/punk and psychodelia.

Probably the only album that manages to combine rap, hardcore/metal and jazz.

Metal Fatigue and Wardenclyffe Tower are amazing, as well.

As much as David Gold is a complete faggot and everything they have released since this is horrid shit, this first demo/EP is fucking fantastic... I haven't heard this remixed version with this cover but the original is great. Dave Gold claims to have written all that music but there's no way he did, his sense of melody and ear for proper harmony is still to this day complete garbage, there's so much unintentionally out of tune shit going on on Pursuit of the Sun that it's impossible to believe he wrote the songs on this release...



Dude has a thing for not giving credit to any musicians he ever plays with. I was in the band for a year and played their biggest show ever with them and he still went out of his way to have my name removed from the past members list on Metal Archives. Dude gave no credit in the Pursuit booklet to the guy who played bass on the album either. He's a two faced shithead who tries to be the most friendly down to earth cool guy to his fans but behind the scenes he is such a fucking cunt. Don't support this faggot, ever.

here's a little known gem that more people need to check out:



Homesick For Space - Unison

It's sort of indie, progressive, post-rock, I guess. It's not completely easy to describe, but it's wonderful music.

It would be helpful if people would post artist/album title and perhaps a short description
I've only heard of like 10% of these albums and actually listened to far less and I want to check some out

Man I was just listening to the new album for kicks and didn't realize how fucking awful some of the lyrics are hahaha....

Ripping down the valley of asphalt
Through a brainstorm of snow and ice
Where dynamite blasted the Canadian Shield, I ride
Highways 17 and 69

I understand the relation
Of black metal and modern life
How a cold winter scene
Can inspire distortion and screams

I am equal parts blood and ice
I am just as much man as tree
Through chaos and solitude I came
To become this black metal being

Each day I could see the changes
Each day I became more extreme
I understood how the sight of nature
Could inspire the sound of machines
I am equal parts blood and ice
I am just as much man as tree
Through chaos and solitude I came
To become this black metal being

I've traveled over dynamic earth at night
On highways 17 and 69
For the beauty of nature can lift my spirits
Even in the dead of winter.

Modern life can drive us to scream for the trees...(in harmony)
For those of us who can't find peace, at least we can have a release.

I understand the translation
Universal in human behaviour
A common expression and interpretation
Of Black Metal and modern life

Focused and strong
Without distraction, I look within
No one to talk me out of what I believe
Without reaction, I proceed.

I was on my own and alone to decide
Black metal was all that mattered, at the time
I found faith inspired by nature
And I was defined.
I am equal parts blood and ice
I am just as much man as tree
Through chaos and solitude I came
To become this black metal being

On this northern highway, under the starry sky
Mine was a cold, nocturnal, winter ride

And in the distance...
A stranger flashed his lights...
