Often used to describe bands like Pantera and Exhorder. With mid-tempo riffs similar to those found in Thrash Metal and a tendency to focus more on groovy syncopation and heaviness than outright speed.
I actually liked Robin Williams. Brian Regan is phenomenal, or at least he used to be. Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Godfrey, and Bill Burr are probably my favorite American comedians. There are any number of British comics I've enjoyed: Michael McIntyre, Simon Evans, Miles Juppe, David Mitchell, Lee Mack, Frankie Boyle, Jo Caulfield, Zoe Lyons, Romesh Ranganathan, Stephen K. Amos, Alun Cochrane, Rhod Gilbert, Sean Walsh, and of course Bill Bailey.
S/T by Harvest Misery - fairly good semi-technical death metal from ZA. @deathstorm it reminds me a little of Dying Fetus, you might wanna try this.
I'd recommend using the @ sign to tag me if you'd like a response and don't want to hunt down a quote - but to answer your question here:
I'd not mind giving Ihsahn money just because he's opposed to my religion. I assume the vast majority of metal musicians are opposed to my religion, so if I went with the whole "think impact" route I probably couldn't listen to any of it. My decisions to purchase music are driven by the client-vendor relationship. Burzum killed a guy and people seem quite happy to give him money, because he didn't use his electric guitar to murder anybody. I just refuse to give people money for making music that attacks my religion. Hence, my refusal to buy from Akercocke, Amon Amarth, Deicide, Vital Remains. Question is whether Ihsahn makes music shitting on Christianity or whether he just spends his spare time doing that. If it's the latter I'm happy to pay for his guitar work, but I sure as hell won't pay to hear him prattle about religion.
And yeah, I was streaming it over YouTube. Candlelight Records has a Bandcamp where I could listen for free as well.
Can anyone familiar with the Phoenix restaurant scene make a reccomendation for a good vegan restaurant? I'm very aware of Loving Hut and Even Stevens and I'm looking for something new. Thanks in advance!
