Thanks for the Slipknot reminder. I recommend All Hope Is Gone for your first Slipknot album, DeadPres.

As for FFDP, I was a big fan until that American Capitalist album. WTF was that?

Anyone heard of Suns of the Tundra? Progressive Rock/Metal band from England with connections to Tool.

"Made of Stone" (single song)
VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


"Tunguska" (full 2006 album)
VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


Basically; Tool's bassist, Justin Chancellor, used to be in this band in the early '90's when they were called Peach (they actually toured with Tool at one point), but they broke up around '95 and Chancellor joined Tool.

Fast-forward a few years and there's renewed interest in Peach thanks to Tool covering a couple of their songs live in '98 ("You Lied", which appeared on Tools 2000 "Salival" release, and "Spasm").

So Peach reissue their 1993 album "Giving Birth to a Stone" in 2000 (complete with new cover art by Tool's guitarist Adam Jones).

They then reform as Suns of the Tundra, releasing a self-titled album in 2004, then "Tunguska" (posted above) in '2006, and an EP in 2009 called "Illuminate".

Since then they've been working on a double album/concept album based around a BBC documentary about Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton and his early-1900's expeditions to the South Pole. That should hopefully be out in the next few months.


I've really gotten into these guys over the last few months and think they deserve a hell of a lot more attention, so check 'em out (especially if you like Tool)!

Cool. I've given Peach's album a few listens, I gotta say, their work as Suns of the Tundra is waaaay better, particularly Tunguska. They've really improved as songwriters from Peach through the 2004 SotT albm and then Tunguska & Illuminate.

Really looking forward to their next release "Bones of Brave Ships".

Fleshing itself out to be a fairly standout year for metal music so far with powerful releases from Arkona, Agalloch, Elvenking, Inanimate Existence, Falconer, Equilibrium, Disforia, Ifing, Dead Congregation, Epica, Idylls, Sinbreed, Morbus Chron, Mayan, Epitimia, Woods of Desolation, Stormwarrior, Thyrien, and many others. I’m particularly excited about what the rest of the year has in store for the genre and there’s still a lot of records I haven’t gotten around to yet that I have a feeling are going to be pretty great (Evergrey’s “Hymns for the Broken”, Blut aus Nord’s “Memoria Vetusta III”, etc.)
