Bruce Dickinson's late 90s solo work is worth a mention - most of his solo albums are mediocre, but the two with Adrian Smith (Accident of Birth and The Chemical Wedding) are fucking brilliant. I actually like them better than any Iron Maiden albums. See what you think:

Where does stuff like robo and PCP fit in? Somewhere between phantastica and inebriata?

I suspect Inebriata/Euphorica. Both PCP and DXM are classified as dissociative hallucinogens (NMDA receptor antagonists), as is Nitrous Oxide.

What exactly does Nitrous Oxide do? I've never given it a try and my drug taking days are pretty much over.

I'm surprised the thread made it this far before devolving into the inevitable Haddaway jokes.

No, but I went to college just across the border in WA and did a lot of hiking and camping around BC. The "grouse grind" was one of my favorites although the mosquitoes were brutal up there during the warmer months.

I'd still put it way ahead of IX Eq, that one was the pit for me. Remember that ARE YOU TALKIN TO ME? sounding song, "The Warriors of Modern Death"? The worst moments on Anthems are a fucking artistic goldmine next to that.

Prometheus just sounds like it was made by robots; its not even a factor.

Some of the riffs are nice too, even on Prometheus, but the final product...

Both those albums are without focus, but am I the only one who thought Anthems was kind of decent? Sure it's not essential like previous works, and has some shitty moments where the whole thing descends into a blur of noise, but the last half of the album (especially "With Strength I Burn") is really quite good IMO.

I used to listen to Anthems a lot, but I don't remember that I had heard it thoroughly without falling asleep.

Start the disc on track 5, that''s what I always do.

but how many of these women watch the entire show without being clucking like chickens (for poser is the same).
I would say from my own experience, talking and being in the scene that 95% are total posers. They just want to date  the hot guy with long hair in the band. I swear, their opening line is " Do you listen to Metallica, their like, my favorite band"! For some reason I have the same response, pause, head tilt, slight smile "uh yeah I like Metallica". I do like Metallica's older music, but jesus fucking christ.

Theres a certain type of girl who likes to put herself into places where she's surrounded by dudes just to prop up her fragile ego. Auto body shops, metal shows, computer programming classes, whatever. Like the female equivalent of some sad guy who hangs out with all women and is "just one of the girls".

Bitches like that are the reason why when I do attend metal shows, I keep my hair short and rock polo shirts and other nerdy looking clothes. My favorite shirt to wear when I play my own shows is blue and says: "Grouse Mountain - the Peak of British Columbia".

Mentioned in the petition is the accusation of the members of Behemoth (including Nergal) of raping a drunk woman (a fan apparently) while on tour with Khold in Spain in 2001. According to this Polish news website article, Nergal justifies himself and the band that it was not rape – or at least in his eyes. He claims that “rock ‘n’ roll is a fun game, often dangerous and risky”. He goes on: “Something that may be something horrible and amoral to you, for me is an emanation of Dionysian attitudes and ecstatic elevation or just pure hedonism with a hint of perversion."

BEHEMOTH: Forced to Cancel Festival Appearance And Accused of Raping a Fan in 2001

Still just allegations. If they're lies, she should serve time. His statement is totally unconvincing -or- a media troll however.

Nergal's explanation rephrased in ebonics:

I'm a motherfucker, I put a bitch thru a test
If she don't pass, she don't get blessed
If the test consist of fuckin' my whole crew
Well bitch, god damn, that's what you gotta do

So a second-rate "extreme metal" band decided to run a train on some brainless 19 year old goth groupie, and 13 years later she is having second thoughts about it all... go figure. At least he's still got that bad ass knee to fall back on if things don't work out for him

External factors play a role though: Facebook has lasted far, far longer than Myspace as the predominant social network, mainly due to user flight from Myspace - mostly because of Myspace's incredibly bad web design and UI.

Remember opening some idiot's profile and having 3 "Screamo" videos and a Dane Cook standup routine all start playing at the same time, and said idiot had loaded their profile so full of hi-resolution custom images that you had to hunt around the suddenly huge browser window to find and shut them all off before your computer(or sanity) tanked? Myspace didn't realize that half their users were trailer trash morons, who, given the power to customize their own web portals, would make them nearly unusable.

That bit of knee showing makes the picture.

It's a glimpse of the "real" Behemoth, the only tiny speck in the entire photo that doesn't seem phony and contrived... a dude's knee.
