Recently I've noticed a couple of articles by more popular or mainstream websites stating that Slaughter of the Soul is nothing but an overrated sham. 
Here is one of them:
http://www.angrymetalguy.com/indefensible-positions-gates-slaughter-soul/

The websites themselves try to wash their hands by clearly stating that this is solely the opinion of that particular writer, and the writer himself appears to try to emphasize his humility in accepting his "subjective" take on the matter (in order to avoid confrontation).  Despite this, I still think it is an improvement. Time starts to take its toll on these early and mid 90s aberrations once praised by the masses as classics.

Metal / Delirium (self-titled)
« on: January 16, 2014, 05:25:47 AM »
Hailing from Honduras, formerly known as Delirium Tremens, this band released the self-titled album "Delirium" in the year 1995.
One of the few decent metal bands in Central America in the early 90s. 

No need for more information (unless you are interested in finding out more on your own)
The music speaks for itself:

Interzone / Tolkien
« on: January 04, 2014, 07:46:15 AM »
So, it's JRR Tolkien's birthday today!

Care to name a few Death and Black Metal bands' songs which deal with topics from Tolkien's world?

There are also bands who took their name from his creations but I am more interested in the first.

Metal / Obscura vrs From Wisdom to Hate
« on: December 22, 2013, 09:59:30 AM »
Obscura is an exciting and futuristic exploration.  It was written by Gorguts the year RIGHT after The Erosion of Sanity came out.  It has all kinds of sounds, structural variation and sound experiments.  But in my opinion it is also over-extended to the point of redundancy and sometimes lacking (or making me feel it lacks) enough development of some ideas.

"From Wisdom to Hate" is matured Gorguts. Best album by this band.

Too subtle for even most fans of the band to appreciate as their most refined work. Most get distracted by the over-abundant (and redundant) fireworks that Obscura present them with and fail to see how it falls short of the directed and concise work of art "From Wisdom to Hate" is.

Interzone / Coursera introductory classes on Classical music

I've taken a couple of classes on coursera and I wanted to share and recommend them to metal fans who are not familiar with
but are interested in getting a acquainted with classical music.   In case someone does not want to register to the website, I also downloaded
the videos from coursera and uploaded them to dropbox repository to share.

Metal / An idea: Obscura for string quartet?
« on: November 29, 2013, 03:16:56 AM »
Would anyone find the idea of the Obscura album by Gorguts be played by a classical string quartet compelling?

The content of the two guitars and bass (and possible the voice, in some parts) be not only transcribed (of course) but adapted and rearranged for classical string instruments in a way that takes advantage of the capabilities and techniques used in those instruments.

Frankly, the idea is incredibly tempting for me.  If anyone is not already doing it, I am making an entry in my to-do list for next year to at least start to get down the guitars and bass lines into music scores.  I think that would be a first step.  I am not an expert on this nor am I a music major, so when I get it done (if someone didn't do it already), I'd like to see if someone can do the adapting to string quartet done.

Interzone / Who attends this forum?
« on: October 31, 2013, 05:30:00 AM »
I'd like to know, just out of curiosity, the academic background of the people who frequently attend this forum. And your interests.  Specially artistic interests in which you are actively engaged?

I have just obtained my undergrauate degree on Computer Science.
I learned acoustic guitar during my teen years and have been learning electric guitar for about 5 years.   In order to be more than a talker I try to keep my weekly practice at at least 5 hours distributed throughout the whole week.
I've been learning piano for a few months and I study music theory, history and appreciation when I get the chance, as often as I can in between work, instrument practice and gym sessions.

Metal / anus.com top 15 death metal albums torrent!
« on: October 24, 2013, 04:01:59 PM »
Even though this is not a list of my favorite pick of albums (I don't consider my favorite to be the best, they just  appeal to me), the list of best ever Death Metal albums has very well thought-out picks.   I decided to make a torrent to share the list of very relevant albums, albums many would consider masterpieces of the genre.
