Try Flying Monkeys' "Hoptical Illusion" Almost IPA, Tuborg, Holsten Festbock, St. Ambroise Imperial Stout (as well as their Pumpkin Ale - seasonally available), Dead Elephant, and Wellington County anything.
Blaphbee? that is an ancient screen name.

I like these: Badger Poacher's Choice; Duvel; Tanglefoot.

Yeah, it's been awhile. Just rediscovering the internet once more from that time.

Duvel? I've never been partial to that particular brew. I wish I could get behind the stale tap water Parasite recommends, but I like beer with flavour - and alcohol - myself. Although, I will say this: it's getting harder and harder to drink bottled or canned beer anymore - it's too heavy. It's gotta be draught now - which, considering my above list, makes it hard to find a good watering hole.

Try Augury - Concealed is a little abstract, whereas Fragmentary Evidence is a little more cohesive, as well as having better production - guitars are more compressed, but there's more space in the final product, giving the bass more room to breathe.

I've played with these guys a few times now, and they're a class act all the way.

Interesting. Some passages need to be shortened up, and others lengthened...The riff immediately after the solo needs to go.... This reminds me of nothing more than Atheist's Roots, Bloody Roots. Trying to modernize a twenty year old aesthetic medium doesn't translate very well, even in the hands of it's creators. Learn the lessons Sepultura taught us.

That said absolutely nothing.

Awesome! Where do you live around? Who knows what the future may hold?...

Crimson Massacre tries too hard. They should've waited until they had something worthwhile to say, instead of trying to blow us away with how well they play their instruments.

http://www.myspace.com/nothingleftfortomorrow  Since everyone's being so forthcoming, here's what i've been doing with the last three years. Nothing groundbreaking, simply throwback speed metal-meets-death metal pacing. I'm drumming, came to the songs after they'd been written. There's a rather large crossover background to the main songwriter, so if you hear those influences creeping into things, don't be surprised.

strangely enough, every girl i've dated has been into metal, although mostly popularized metal [slayer, megadeth, metallica et al.]. they've all had their respective share of "issues" but nothing all that world-shattering. i've run into a few women here and there interested in the death/black metal world, and they were rather interesting women themselves, although i never attempted to pick them up. i guess i had no interest in complicating the relationship, as i haven't the time or energy to deal with that chicanery right now. but that's just me.

God, i remember the hoopla surrounding velveeta caccoon; what a crock they were and later turned out to be. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Devamitra.If i had to contribute to this list, i'd say that, even though i perform in a metal band, i've had enough of listening to metal. Having done so for 25 years now, i've heard pretty much everything metal will be able to throw my way. This isn't to say that i've given up on metal per se, i'm just exceptionally tepid on that subject now. Ah well. it had a good run.

It's in the penultimate two lines. Also, sporadically hinted at in the chorus, but regardless, I don't really see "racism" as much as a statement of preference.

does anyone remember Soulside Journey getting chewed out by QBLH on the old bbs after wondering about this sort of thing? Not implying anything towards Conservationist or anyone, this post just reminded me of that.

the previous recipe for duxelle is incorrectly prepared. duxelle requires the deep caramelization of the mushrooms before the shallots are even added, and you can only achieve this by slicing the mushrooms up, cooking to a deep brown colour, and then adding minced shallot, thyme and a touch of red wine which is then allowed to evaporate - by this point, the shallots have softened sufficiently. you then blend this mixture in a food processor until you hit the desired pastelike consistency. mincing the mushrooms that fine beforehand introduces far greater opportunity to burn everything, if you were to caramelize the mushrooms properly.if there's a job worth doing, it's worth dong right.

Why do we bother with this band that not a single person here has admitted to profoundly liking or caring about?
See Velvet Caccoon for further clarification. They were a favoured whipping boy back in the day.

Explain to me, if you will, how my statement was meaningless or unfair. It was a blanket statement yes, but as I've noted above, I've witnessed no exceptions to the rule, thus the comment stands, as far as I can see. You've done a good job of noting some exceptions in your own worldview, but you fail to realize that I didn't offer objective fact. I offered an opinion as it relates to my own worldview. Don't take it so personally. It isn't like you created hip-hop, thus I don't see why you would get riled up by one man's staments of personal preference to the contrary of your own.
