I've always preferred Holy Mountain to Dopesmoker. Dunno why. I guess the main melodic "theme" of Dopesmoker never grabbed me.
I've had a hell of a time getting into new metal bands in recent years. I think everything I listened to regularly in 2016 was, like, Voivod, Gorguts, The Body, Krallice, Virus, Dysrhythmia? Just new material from established bands. Also, 4 of those bands have had the same people in them. So I'm feeling stagnant and old.
What's good in noise vomit, y'all?
