Interzone / Vinyl to MP3 conversion

Can you guys tell me how to make good quality MP3s out of my LPs easily?

In return, I'll upload stuff from my collection. It's mostly Renaissance/Baroque music. I'm sure you'll like it.

Interzone / Gustav Mahler

What's your opinion on this composer? We can all agree on Beethoven's works being brilliant art but opinions on Mahler should be a bit more varied. I greatly enjoy his symphonies but I understand why some people might dismiss them as schmaltz.

Mahler's work seems very metal to me. I've heard the 6th being described as "the first nihilistic piece in music history" and I think it fits.

His best qualities are the broad spectrum of emotions he conveys, his sense of humour, and his ability to write movements of epic proportions which still have a logical and clear structure. I find him to be easier to follow than Bruckner, whose symphonies somtimes seem a bit confounding and unwieldy to me.

Maybe my opinion will change when I've listened to more classical music but I would place him right along Beethoven and Bruckner as one of the greatest composers of symphonies.

Metal / Negura Bunget

I recently discovered " 'N Crugu Bradului " and " Om " and thought that they were pretty good. I especially like how they play melodies in different scales at the same time to create moments that are both beautiful and unsettling. They sometimes lose focus, but all in all, this is one of the better newer black metal bands I've heard.

Still, I've only discovered them quite recently so I don't know if they will stand the test of time. Maybe I'll change my mind over time and one year from now, I'll think they suck.

What are your opinions on this band?
