Metal / Re: Best use of Vinyl and CD formats
« on: February 12, 2014, 11:20:54 AM »
Main problem with cassettes is when you stick them in a fifteen-year old player that you haven't tested in years and it CHEWS THEM TO COMPLETE SHIT.

Happened last winter with one of my band's demos, only existing copy. Yes, I'm still mad. At least CDs are easy to make copies of.

Ouch, that blows. Back up your music so this doesn't happen, everyone! Yeah tapes can be finicky, you have to be careful about them getting warped or 'chewed up'.

As much as I dislike smart phones, one of the nice things about them is cloud data (if you have it available) - you can get most or all of your information back onto the phone from cloud storage. Its annoying when they break/are lost/get stolen (as mine recently was - broken), but after a few days I had a new one (for free, even) with all of my old information on it.

It's easier to replace than my copies of Nespithe, a rare 1985 Death rehearsal and The Devil and the Whore on vinyl, that's for sure!

I think for longer albums (such as El Mundo Frio or Creation of a Monolith) CDs are ideal. You'd probably have to switch between 2-3 separate vinyls to listen to all of the same album. CDs are great for just the sheer amount of music that can be put on.

EP's, singles, etc - these are vinyl's bread and butter.

Melodic, melancholic, and melodramatic. Not really what you're looking for but I thought I'd throw it in.

This is outstanding, many thanks for this recommendation. I'll be looking into a lot more Bethlehem. Weird name for the band, though. Shouldn't they have at least spelled it backward or something?  ;)

Allow me to second the recommendation for Bethlehem. Their debut is abso-fucking-lutely outstanding. The second album, Dictius Te Nictare is also good. Their third is mixed, with some songs being brilliant while others just wank around with little purpose.

Perhaps Runemagick would strike your fancy? (made up of some former Sacramentum personnel)

Opinions are useful if one has experience and/or knowledge on the subject.

Otherwise, they're just superfluous statements.

Interesting link. Read a bit of it, reads like a more martial Nietzsche. Going to read more later.

Hey, I found a youtube channel of his. Awesome, more material to mull over - he's pretty intriguing.

Let's not request pics. We're better than the "tits or gtfo" crowd here.

Poster with a dumb username requests good metal. We provide suggestions. That is all.

Wasn't trying to request, the poster had said they included a pic, obviously its not there. Was calling attention to that.

The first two Cryptopsy albums are both great - I'd put Blasphemy Made Flesh above None So Vile as an album, though I think the latter has stronger individual tracks.

Wormed - Planisphærium is also really solid. They've just come out with a new album last year. I haven't heard it, but as I was typing this up I found a video from it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6WSIu7cSYQ

Video itself is kind of dumb but the song is interesting. A little clean sounding, but overall melodically and rhythmically compelling. Going to have to check out the album proper.

Where? I don't see any picture. If you meant to put it in your post it didn't work.

Thanks for the information, trystero. Shows how unfamiliar I am with it when I can't request properly! I'll dive into it tomorrow as I've got the whole day off with not much planned.

Baby don't hurt me
No more



Love is a complex chemical reaction in our brains. It also makes your pants tingly. But when one really is in love, the feeling exceeds every drug and vice known to man.

I was going to guess either Battletoads or Contra. Fuck, those games frustrated the hell out of me as a kid.

To me there are two definitions of equality, but one of them may be something else entirely.

Definition 1 - each member of a society contributes to said society. Each has a role to fulfill. Products and monetary objects are not throwaway, and serve a functional/practical purpose. Each member of said society is interested and invests in the health of their community and the society at large.

Definition 2 - basically the modern Western classification - "we are all equal, because." Irrespective of quality or quantity or usefulness.

The key word in your post - "if".

IF equality (as modern Western society views it) exists, then the answer to your questions above are as follows: none, it can't, nothing, no, and no.

But thankfully, despite society's collective neurosis, equality does not exist. Therefore, knowledge has meaning, money only has what value people assign to it, not everyone is equal (some are more useful than others); but I still don't know 'the answer'......I doubt many do.

Goddamn it. I seethe with contempt at the masses of hipster idiots infesting the fine state I grew up in.

Time to scoop out the pockets of sanity in NYC while jettisoning the rest 5 miles out into the Atlantic.

Metal / Re: Slayer touring with Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus
« on: January 24, 2014, 07:44:52 AM »
I lost track of Exodus after Force of Habit and ST after How Will I Laugh... I'd suppose they along with Slayer drifted toward the new way of making metal around those years when Divine Intervention was released.

Do many dedicated fans attend just for the old material nostalgia? I remember a time when that wasn't even a concept.

Yeah a lot of them do, myself included. New Slayer isn't so bad - World Painted Blood and Christ Illusion have some good tracks. New ST is pretty crappy all around, I think How Will I Laugh Tomorrow is their last gasp. They went funk metal or whatever after that. New Exodus is abysmal, especially the singer - though the comeback album in 2004 was less bad than what came after.

Still hoping to see this tour though despite newer shitty material.

Catching up with some indian classical, Salamat Ali Khan and Ali Akbar Khan mostly.

I've seen Indian classical mentioned around here a few times. Would you mind recommending me one symphony/opus from either of these composers? I'd like to dive into this genre; I've never heard classical music outside of a European/American context and I'm pretty curious.
