A lot of modern EBM industrial is too predictable to be very exciting - hardly ever deviates from the basic verse/chorus structure. VNV Nation has stronger melodies but weak vocals. Some older groups, especially Skinny Puppy, had a more organic sound.


Also try Coil - initially had industrial elements, went on to make other styles of experimental/electronic music. These tracks are highly recommended, probably higher than anything else I could recommend to anyone:

The Dreamer is Still Asleep:

Dark River(Autechre remix):


Amethyst Deceivers:

I hate Savatage after having had the misfortune to listen to The Wake of Magellan, the gayest metal album I have ever heard: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k1TMhUxEgY

That album is balls, Hall oft he Mountain King is cheesy but solid - the old guitarist who wrote all their good music died in 1993 hence the drop in quality. They eventually turned into Trans Siberian Orchestra, that ridiculous "Christmas rock band"

Metal / Re: Best use of Vinyl and CD formats
« on: February 11, 2014, 10:45:51 PM »
Vinyl is just too impractical for being on the move; so is CD really. Most of my music is on my iphone, even in the car I hook it in the AUX port. I know it's lame but it really does make sense when many of your CDs are rare, OOP, first presses, collectible etc.

I don't care if my smart phone gets stolen, I can just buy another exactly like it the next day. I would flip the fuck out if I lost my old copies of Immense Intense Suspense, Slaughtersun, Finis Malorum, Det Frysende Nordariket, Ames De Marbre, A Velvet Creation, Oneiricon, Folkoric Necro Metal, Nespithe, Blod Draum, Sorrow, Thousand Swords with the BW cover etc.

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 Pantera 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".
