It finally arrived. So it's been on repeat for the last day.

Opeth - Watershed.

Really enjoying it, even if it sounds more like their older stuff. I hear more 'My Arms, Your Hearse' in it than anything else......No bad thing.....

I got that too - on a previous recommendation from your good self. Bit of a cheese factor but I love the drumming.
TBH, 'Watershed' is a bit of a step backwards. Not that I don't enjoy it, because I do, but 'Blackwater Park' is their finest album. 'Deliverance' & 'Damnation'. are also both very good. All 3 were produced by the guy from Porcupine Tree (Steven Wilson?) and the production is great.

The new drummer isn't as good as the last guy, but he went a bit nuts and they had to oust him. :-(

Who is your favourite drummer BTW? Ever since I bought 'Individual Thought Patterns' by 'Death' I have been an ardent fan of Gene Hoglan. There's no way a guy that size should be able to play how he does, but it's his diversity which is astounding. Incredible double kicking in 'Strapping Young Lad', Prog with power in 'Death;, laid back solid grooves with Devin Townsend's solo stuff ('Terria' is amazing, you simply must buy it).

Favourite drummer? Hmmmmm............not an easy question to answer

So many good drummers about.

Indeed there are. Most of the drummers I admire incorporate more into their sound than just metal, I can appreciate the skill that goes into playing extreme metal, it's just that it doesn't really float my boat.

Chris Pennie, Sean Reinert, Bobby Jarzombek, Mike Portnoy & the aforementioned Gene Hoglan are all outstanding drummers IMO. Thomas Pridgen playing on the new 'Mars Volta' album is great to listen to and watch in full flow.

This week,I have been mostly listening to 22 Dreams my Mister Paul Weller,absolute masterpiece and the best new album I`ve heard since `As is now` in 2006,I reckon he just sounds better as he gets older.
