  1. Well, at least the Hallucinogen remasters are done by Kevin Metcalfe and not some random nobody, so this should be good. I'm actually more interested in what tracks they're putting on the upcoming singles/compilation tracks collection. Won't be getting the vinyls in any case, as I have no use for them.

    Make a track that sounds like a collaboration of Moon Beasts, Unknownium and Principles of Flight \m/
  3. Whoa, another one of my favourite artists is releasing a new album this year (worth noting though is that I do have some versions of about half of these tracks, so partially I know what's coming, but still this was a nice surprise)

    Make track that sounds like it was made by Xenomorph and The Delta Make a track that sounds like it was made by Four Carry Nuts and Dark Soho

    Well, that kinda happened already, but the results were absolutely terrible:
  6. And oh, kinda old news by now but I finally got the newest The Algorithm album a few weeks ago (I think it was this month's Bandcamp Friday). Synthwave/alt metal/scifi vibes all over.
  7. Yep, which makes me wonder which one of this album's tracks he'll remix for his next (?) album XD
  8. 3 weeks after its release, some comments now that the album's sunk in a bit. The good: Cristian turned up his production values a notch while still keeping his sound as gritty and relentless as before. He has a really distinct recognizable sound that sets him far apart from cookie cutter "Neo Goa" (oh fuck how I hate that term used as a genre name). Not really much to say yet on an individual track level, only worth noting is that Borg Madness isn't really my cup of tea. The meh: He uses too many recycled samples we've all heard a thousand times before. Maybe he wanted to pay homage to some great tracks from the golden days, but to me their use sounds kinda forced. Thankfully he still doesn't overuse them, so this is quite a minor gripe, but a gripe in any case. The bad: This actually has nothing to do with the music itself, but something went really wrong in the QC process when the credits read "All tracks written, produced and mastered by Tim Schuldt 4CN Studios, Germany". I mean what the actual fuck, Suntrip? Usually your releases don't have this level of fuckups.
  9. I'll have to go through these recent suggestions sooner or later btw. Thanks guys
  10. You want some epic power metal? Japan delivers 😮 Pretty much the complete opposite of the doom/gothic aesthetic, but I've had this album on almost daily listening since my CD finally arrived last week.
  11. If there's one singer who comes quite close to Aleah, it'd be Heike Langhans. The peculiar thing about both of them is that they're both originally from South Africa, and moved to Sweden to do some metal o.O Both also have this ethereal/gothic aesthetic about them. That being said, here's the latest project with Heike's vocals: Do check the other videos from the Ghost Bird Studios channel. I actually found out about Heike Langhans in this post about the (then) new ISON album in this very thread: https://www.psynews.org/forums/topic/56025-the-metal-thread/?do=findComment&comment=10022045
  12. Hmm, what happened in 2022? Let's see... I deleted all my DJ sets from SoundCloud (and cancelled my pro subscription) and YouTube in June. I did play a whopping 8 gigs during the entire year, mostly with not much inspiration, and half of them were birthday gigs with people turning 40 (I mean, a few years ago I played at people's 30th birthdays, we're slowly getting old here...). The highlight of the year (again) was the finale of our series of top secret goa trance beach parties. We decided that a decade of doing these was enough and went out with a blast: a 10 hour nonstop back to back gig with 7 (or was it 8?) DJs on constant rotation. No laptops, just one pair of SL1200s and Nexus CDJs. Even I played a few vinyls even if I'd never done that on a gig before. What else? I've mostly turned into a reclusive hermit, didn't go to a single party unless I was playing (actually no that's bullshit, I did go to one or two where I wasn't playing but didn't really enjoy myself, bleh). Emptied all my social media accounts too (didn't close them though for various reasons) and been spending (too much) time just by myself. This can't be good in the long run but I can't be bothered to do anything about it right now. In general I've lost most of my interest towards anything "trance" (not all of it, that's impossible), trying to find some enjoyable metal and/or heavier rock bands instead (or even some electronic music with guitars etc), with not much success, but still some, that's a plus So uh, did I forget something? Probably.
  13. That being said...(old news I guess but) HOLY SHIT NEW BABYMETAL ALBUM INCOMING 😮 I have it on preorder and dammit XD it'll still take about 2 months before my CD arrives from Japan (release at the end of March)
  14. Yeah, Aleah had a voice like no other and it still pains me that nobody will ever see ToE live. I've actually been trying to hunt down some other metal in the goth/doom flavour with (even remotely) similar atmospheres and female vocals, but not much has come up. Suggestions welcome

  17. Well here's a bit of a blast from the past (and me crawling from under my rock at least for now). 11 years ago on this exact date (11.11.11) me and my then-girlfriend played a downtempo set at a People Of The Butterflies party named "Eleven" (the idea of the party being that all sets were played by couples). I lost the original material for the set years ago, but a while ago my ex told me she'd found the mp3 version on a friend's computer. I asked her to send it to me, and here it is back in my hands again. The set is quite rough around the edges since I'd been somewhat actively DJing for about a year by then, but it does have a certain charm and a tracklist with some perhaps unexpected choices. Tracklist: 山本千夏 - Early Bird Woob - Giant Stroke Xerxes - My Favorite Kind Of Silence Omnimotion - Love Song 坂本真綾 - 記憶 -there's no end Aligning Minds - Just A Glimpse Astralasia - Tantric Afterglow Bar Luunarikka - Ancient Eyes Uth - Ethereal Dream Massive Attack - Teardrop Perpetual Loop - Eastern Sunbreak Solarians - And Then I Fell Krusseldorf - Forest Fever Eguana - Passing Through Your Mind Androcell - Dub Gardens Juno Reactor - Pistolero (Bombay Dub Orchestra Remix)
  18. An to add to the topic: anything by Entheogenic. I simply can't stand their shitty plastic "psybient" at all.
  19. I can certainly agree with the Jiggle of the Sphinx part here (and to a certain extent, Deranger too). I mean, there's an obvious reason why there's a gap of silence after Gamma Goblins 2 (with those 6 first tracks mixed into a seamless journey): the album actually ends there. The 2 last tracks are more like an afterthought, or filler to get the release to "album length". Deranger had a single release anyway already (and yeah yeah so did Trancespotter but it fits well into the album continuum). Of course, the album isn't everyone's cup of tea. I bought my (golden CD) copy from a friend of mine back in 1998 or so because he didn't like it (I can't recall if he ever really explained what exactly he didn't like about it).
  20. I'll have to check this out one of these days Also, not meaning to piss on your shoes or anything, but I'd post the link to Matsuri Digital's own Bandcamp, not the one that goes via Beatspace https://matsuridigital.bandcamp.com/album/quantum-audio-laboratory
  21. Reading and listening to the lyrics, it's right there. She knew her time is coming to an end. From a comment on Bandcamp: "It's the dark beauty of someone literally singing her own requiem." And to think she was younger than I am now when she passed away.
  22. Yep. It's up there with my favourite albums of all time Interesting to note is that Aleah did have a bit of a psy scene / downtempo connection, doing vocals for artists like Xerxes and Omnimotion. And curiously enough she collaborated with Simon Posford and George Barker in 1999:
  23. If you want a graceful (as described by the band) mix of metal and alternative rock, you can't go wrong with Human by Nature's finally released debut album. I saw them play their debut gig in late 2016, and have been practically waiting for an album ever since https://hbnearth.bandcamp.com/album/el-imys
