Just discovered this old band. They sound honest. So far so good.

I agree with this. One of my greatest fears is thinking that the last thought that might push itself into my brain at the moment of death is "oh god, I fucked it all up". I need to remember to do everything I can to make that not the case.

To what extent are anti-piracy laws still enforced? I can't imagine it would be an issue with CDs anymore. Especially the classics which are often out of print. And I'm guessing the small portion of worthwhile releases coming out in recent years is easily enough to warrant purchasing a hard copy for most people.

They are possibly the most embarrassing sell-out band ever.

Hard to believe this is 25 years old, and even that 1993 is now 20 years ago.

I guess I wouldn't be helping them for me, but for them, which is good for me too.
Of course you have to wonder what makes me think they want my help  :D

What's a good brand for studio monitors. I just use a 20 year old pair of TEAC speakers (which are starting to fizzle out)or otherwise headphones. I rarely listen to music on computer, only to get a general impression of a piece, if it's good then I'll track down a physical copy.

I don't own a set of monitor speakers but I've used a bunch and talked to others enough to have a decent idea of what's available.

It depends on your price range, but Alesis and KRK have been good at the lower end of monitor price ranges. I have loved the Mackie monitors and other gear I've used, but it wasn't mine and I'm pretty sure the price tags were quite steep as it was higher end stuff. Behringer's less expensive monitors (even in the $100 range) color the sound more than most actual monitor speakers, they seem more like computer speakers than monitors. M-Audio pushes their stuff pretty hard through major stores but their monitors are crappy and unreliable.

Thankyou. I think I will save up and get the Mackies.

I had an idea to create something beautiful which helps mankind. If not that then simply living out the days, appreciating each one. The summers, the winters. There's a first and last time for everything.

Metal / Re: Is black-metal vocals a version of guttural?
« on: October 07, 2013, 03:23:20 AM »
Morbid Angel use more of a raspy black metal type vocal while something like Blasphemy is more guttural. On the other hand Carcass used all types of vocal effects. So I think it really depends on the type of sound the musician has in mind more so than fitting into a stereotyped style in an established genre.

It is thought to have some anti-inflammatory type effects (which is why it so commonly used by people with chronic pain). The chemical called BCP found in basil and oregano also has this effect on the cannabinoid receptors.

Kraftwerk - Tour De France Soundtracks (Astralwerks, 2003)

A refined minimalism guides this piece, as it does all the others. What is needed is kept and made dominant so that the virus makes itself indispensable to the mind seeking completion to the beat, the phrase or the verbal accompaniment that periodically intervenes with three-word lyrics. Unlike rock music, which is stranded in the world of stringed instruments, this music admits several different octaves of keyboards and electronic sounds interacting, blurring the difference between percussion and tone as easily as it removes the focus from a dominant instrument and turns it instead to chronological layers of phrase interacting in counterpoint.

One of their best! And if you every get the chance to see them perform live do so at all costs.
They'll blow your little cotton socks clean off!
