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.
Probably me, but I have seen at the very least Surge, Zach, Navy and Marko all support them as well. And no worries Doc, I don't need credit. Just like to spread the stuff that does it for me around for others to possibly enjoy.
Obituary - Cause of Death, I've gotta say I'm pretty sure I spin Slowly We Rot more than CoD.
Obituary - The End Complete
ive come to realise that i can find the extreme end of metal relaxing in a way, and now i can fall asleep to cattle decapitation and immortal, immortal especially. a specific style of black metal such as wolves in the throne room or the more ambient ends of burzum can really set the mood for a goodnights sleep for me
But that's my whole point Jon. When you ask "can anyone think of one instance of a lynching in the court of public opinion based on an accusation with no evidence?" I honestly wouldn't know because I often don't care quite enough to put in the time & effort to dig deep and do my own research. At least not when it comes to celebrities. Believe me I hate all that "modern celebrity obsessed/social media driven culture" just as much as you do.
I also have a huge problem taking anyone's word for anything, ever, especially when it's something I've heard in the for profit media, social media or word of mouth by sources I have not vetted. Extreme skepticism is one of my many flaws I guess. But I imagine that there are heaps of people who have been falsely accused of various things over the years (not just famous people) just like I know there have been many innocent men sent to prison and then released years later when exonerating evidence has been brought to light. We (society) don't always get it right.
There's a reason our legal system has been set up as 'innocent until proven guilty.' Even murderers, violent criminals and the dregs of society have the right to face their accusers and to a lawyer and to have their day in court. Is it really such a stretch from "cancelling" people on social media one day to "blacklisting" them the next as happened back in the Joseph McCarthy era? McCarthyism wasn't about "collecting evidence" it was a total witch hunt. Red fever, a commie under every bed. Witch hunts are bad Jon, even though sadly a certain orange low life has completely corrupted the real meaning of that phrase by totally and intentionally misusing it.
I'm certainly not against investigating things (more facts and information can never be a bad thing) and I'm really not one to go around whining about "cancel culture" either, I generally don't even use that silly phrase. I identify as lefty liberal progressive, and I believe the Jan 6 insurrectionists need to fry, especially Schlump who really deserves a bullet and a blindfold. I'm also not defending actual rapists, abusers or crims. I'm just saying that I think anything can be taken too far no matter how good the original intentions might have been.
I think we've gotten to a point where if any offhand comment can get someone essentially crucified on social media and totally destroy their livelihood then maybe we need to rein things in a bit and take another look. Because it works both ways, if we 'the righteous' can do it to them, then the deplorables can do it to us too. Where does it end? I think the principles of free speech should protect both sides equally, right or wrong. Again, I am not in any way defending murderers or abusers or criminals. But If someone just says or thinks things that we don't happen to agree with (or maybe wants to burn a flag) then I believe that's just the price we all have to pay to live in a free democratic society. It's not actually 1984 yet, is it? Do we still have time to fix this mess before all reason and sense is lost?
