    • Don't wanna put words in Navy's mouth, but I'm sure he's thinking of Hope at the height of their success 25 years ago like in this video when she was 28.     NP: Alice In Chains - Pro TV Archives 1990-1996. Buzzards fly when flesh is ripping.  
    • I will admit it's hard to resist someone saying that they just discovered metal two days ago and they think black metal's the sub-genre for them, could anyone recommend some bands? Of course I could reco some black metal bands with shrieky vocals! How often does that happen? It's just so much better than I heard an album with a skull on the cover 25 years ago that went da da da da da da da da dum dum dum da da da does anyone know what band it could be? Get the fuck outta here with that weaksauce.
    • Clearly, you have a thing for older women. Nothin' wrong with that. You just proved why, when you post stuff, I sit up and pay the fuck attention....you have good taste. That Memoria Vetusta II is an absolute melodic BM gem.    
    • Well they don't age very well in Aotearoa either Doc, it's that damn hole in the Ozone your mob have created down there. My Kiwi wife had melanoma 6 separate times and once it made its way to her blood stream via a lymph node, it went straight to her liver and killed her at the tender young age of 33. But don't worry I have no need or desire for a new partner, either Aussie or Kiwi or otherwise. I'm quite happy flying solo, I was strictly fantasizing and talking shit above. I should probably never set foot in Ireland though, I'm wondering if being surrounded by all those pale skinned redheads might be a bit too much temptation.
    • I'm going to go out on a limb and say Blast Tyrant is one of the stone cold greatest hard rock albums like...ever..of all time kind of thing.  Glad to see I'm not the only dino still buying on disc. Real good argument to be made that CD is the single best way to get inexpensive music that sounds really good. https://www.gearpatrol.com/tech/audio/a731474/reasons-to-buy-cds/#:~:text=If you're looking for,you're likely to get.&text=Also%2C there's the resale value,file%2C there's no resale value. I've got a CD player in my system. Do I use it much?  Well, uh, no, I'm not going to lie, not exactly, no. But now that Zack went on his BAN blitzkrieg- and a most excellent journey that is to go on, I'm thinking of the highly underrated, weird awesome album, Mort. What? Never ripped that fucker? WTF's wrong with me? Throw it in the CDP and listen on the big boy speakers.
