MTB was awesome but I'm too proud to admit that I like Indie (or I legitimately dislike them even though that makes me a douchebag) or it just wasn't my thing and I admit that they are awesome even though it's not something I'd personally listen to

Minus the Bear


I'll start off my week with something fresh for all of you, Minus the Bear. Please ignore the horrible name (which is actually quite funny if you look up it's origin) and listen with an open mind. They're a difficult band to classify, having roots in indie rock, progressive rock and even some dancy sounding pop. But they are by no means a pop band, and I would reluctantly call them an indie rock band simply because each of their albums has a completely different vibe. I'm going to introduce to you all Planet of Ice, their 3rd LP and their most "experimental" (I use that term lightly). Here you'll find soothing melodies, uptempo almost "metal" sections (again, very lightly) and one of the most unique sounds you'll ever hear. This album is their most progressive sounding, but don't let that put you off because it's not what you think when you think progressive.

Istapp


Staying with the cold atmosphere, this week brings us to Istapp, a melodic black metal band. To summarize their sound, I'd say they sound similar to Immortal but without kermit the frog vocals. But they are still awesome, and they have some great riffs to seal the deal. There is nothing too mind blowing here, it's nothing that will change the way you look at music, but Istapp is a very solid melodic black metal band and definitely a band that I would consider to be a leader in the genre.

I guarantee most people will not like Minus the Bear. I enjoy them though. I will have to try out the other black metal.

Liked both of them. Minus The Bear was definetly something I could get into. Great chill out music.

Istapp were good but, like PoS said, nothing standoutish. They were quite repetitive but I'll give them the seal of approval because I did enjoy the music. I don't know if anyone else thought so but I thought they sounded like a black metal Ensiferum...

...or not?

Thanks for the feedback guys. If you all liked MTB enough I'd encourage you to check out their other albums. They all are unique in their own way, they all have drastically different atmospheres.

wellm this is cinerely out dated, but im going to get minus the bear. i have been meaning to, and hell, its right here

i would classify (with only listening to one random song) that they are post-rock, a genre im trying to delve into
