Metal / Re: Best metal releases of 2013 thus far?
« on: March 30, 2013, 10:24:59 PM »
Check out Sacriphyx's The Western Front. Relatively new and incredibly unique band from Australia playing somewhere in between the old school Greek style and Grand Belial's Key.

They have have also done a split with DLA favourites Resuscitator although their best material is from the 2009 split they did with StarGazer. I haven't heard the new album as of yet but based on their previous output I think it will easily be one of the years best.

Arghoslent represents the minority of melodic death metal artists that haven't forgotten about the death part. They combine the "war machine" rhythm of mid-era Bolt Thrower into the "heavy metal" melodic stylings of Dissection/Sacramentum.

They can be compared to another excellent artist, Infester(some of the most doomed death metal ever) in a way that the racist overtones of their lyrics have made them an outsider artist, arousing polarized opinions.

He seems to offer some good advice and ideas for introverts, but lets get real here: this is the guy who claims he can determine with 99% accuracy your level of “thal” ancestry just by looking at a photo of your face.

This based on emotional reasoning rather than anything cool headed and logical.

For instance, I only have a basic understanding of evolutionary biology but can still tell you this is pulled straight from his ass:

“As a result, they evolved into r-strategists, favoring promiscuity and low-investment parenting as a reproductive strategy….
sexual dimorphism was relatively nonexistent because fathers rarely invested in their offspring, forcing women to pick up the slack; higher-order thinking was almost entirely absent.”

In reality K selected species exhibit minimal sexual dimorphism (eg: swans) whereas R selected species usually have dramatic dimorphism (baboons). 


To me Koanic Soul's system is basically Scientology for introverts.

Metal / Re: 'One Man Metal' documentary -- Xasthur comes out the closet

Meh, Xasthur doesnt seemd weird, he seems like he is an overgrown teenager living on welfare......
From what I gather, he never matured past the "nobody understands me" phase of adolescence.

There is nothing romantic about the solitary lifestyles of these individuals. They are not Victor Frankensteins, they are emo autists.

Yes. The doc is more about bad life decisions than it is about music.

Despite the hipster hype, Xasthur's "Telepathic with the Deceased" truly is a great album. I would rank it one level below Joined in Darkness. Everything after that got shockingly boring.

Metal / Re: Wishlist for new SUMMONING album
« on: September 18, 2012, 01:17:32 AM »
Looks like the new SUMMONING reccord is well on its way for a release in 2013:

Quote
We now have finished the composing and selection process of the songs for the new albums (7 songs and one intro). All songs that did not find the way to the album will hopefully be released on future limited releases. In the next months we will record the already composed guitar lines and work on the lyrical concept of the album.

We also collected some paintings for the new album and will work on the visual concept from now on. We hope to be finished with everything untill the end of the year, so that the album can be released by Napalm Records in the first quater of the year 2013.

We also have the news from Napalm Records that in the end of this year there will be a vinyl release of some older Summoning releases. More details soon.

That has to be the most unintentionally funny decline of a death metal band I've ever heard of.

...Morbid Angel.



For whatever reason, the Finnish regional scene went to much higher levels of fagotry than any other. EX: Finntroll, Ensiferum, Turisas, COB.

Transmetropolitan is cool.

Most comics are pureshitforgays though.

Metal / NEW DEAD CAN DANCE ALBUM STREAMING
« on: June 28, 2012, 07:21:11 AM »
From the new full length "ANASTASIS"

http://www.deadcandance.com/presaleassets/anastasisplayer.html




I'm quite impressed with this, although I will have to give it a more comprehensive listen. Considerably better than the last album and B.Perry's somewhat unfortunate solo work...a bit of a return to the "Spleen and Ideal" atmosphere.

Interzone / Herbs/Adaptogens
« on: June 21, 2012, 11:36:48 PM »
So we’ve had threads on drugs and nutrition in the past, so I figured why not start one for herbs.

I recently found a local health food/SWPL store that sells herbs in raw bulk quantities and have decided to experiment with some.

Share any that you thought were particularly useful or disappointing, ect. 

Matcha Tea:

Apparently this is some kind of green tea variant. Its effects are basically identical to that but more potent and brief. Speeds up thoughts and gives you a slight energy and mood boost. I think it could function as an excellent coffee substitute depending on how you brew it.

Maca:

A few subtle mood and energy boosting effects but also found it to function to precipitate relaxation. I felt as though my body temperature was slightly raised while on it. Not particularly impressed/overall costs outweigh benefits.

“Adaptogen Tea” (includes Reshi Mushrooms, Eleuthro, Holy Basil, Aswaganda, Shiandra, Rhodiola, Gynostenma, Devils Club):

This made me feel incredibly sleepy and almost knocked me out at first. Felt deeply relaxed and was able to concentrate on very abstract thoughts and play around with images in my head with great acuity for a few hours.


Ginkgo Biloba:

I have been taking this for a week now and have noticed a massive improvement in my vision. I am slightly farsighted and have been able to completely forgo wearing glasses when driving. I have also noticed a very slight improvement in mental clarity and short-term memory. The only drawback is I am finding it harder to get to sleep, although this may be because I have been taking it too late in the day (supposed to be taken before afternoon).

Definitely recommend this to any backpackers or nature watchers.


Large African Cock:

The effects are subtle but definitely present. I felt an elevation in mood, alertness and a feeling of deep peacefulness. I think this could function as a good replacement for pharmaceutical anti-depressants.
