  1. Today
  2. Be well Nat, catch you soon.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Can't believe March is nearly upon us already. Uni starts on Monday and it just seems to have come around so quickly. Can't wait to get stuck in and I already seem to have a few contacts for when I finish the journalism degree depending on the path I choose to take.
  5. Delighted to hear that you are going to pursue Philosophy at university - I haven't regretted it for a second! Like you, I am also inclined toward Continental thinkers - particularly Hegel. I would go so far as to suggest that one can't understand critical theory without first understanding Hegel, even though he wasn't part of that school of thought. Have you come across a podcast called Philosophize This? If not, I would strongly recommend it. The host provides an excellent introduction to almost all foundational Western thinkers, as well as some Eastern ones. He has a very succinct way of capturing their ideas and transcripts of each show are made available for free on his website. What has been the most influential text which you have read so far?
  6. Man... Demilich and Amorphis are (separately) coming to my area this spring. Amorphis is playing "Tales From The Thousand Lakes" in full... that's even worth sitting through Entombed! Gonna kick myself if I wind up missing either of these.
  7. Nevermore - This Godless Endeavor Nevermore - Enemies Of Reality
  8. I am currently getting ready to begin graduate studies in philosophy. I tend to focus on 19th and 20th century Continental thinkers. I am especially interested in learning about Nietzsche, Hegel, and Heidegger. However, recently I have been studying the Stoic Epictetus! Critical Theory is something that I would like to learn a lot more about - specifically the foundational thinkers. I have learned/come into contact with a lot of the political and cultural ramifications of their work, but have not read much of the theory itself.
  9. Means a lot coming from you sir
  10. Dead Congregation - Graves Of The Archangels Dead Congregation - Promulgation Of The Fall Grave Miasma - Exalted Emanation
  11. @Thrashman, these last few are really nice, good work here.
  12. Much love Nat, hope everything clears up for you

    That's true the emulators does a pretty good job nowadays and I don't blame you for not endorsing the Remakes 🤣 Yep they should have stuck with his original look and adapted to our current gen. This is how Remakes should be IMO, keeping everything that made the originals great and polishing/adding new stuff to the game which wasn't the case of RE2 2019. I think the over the shoulder camera like RE4 was a great choice indeed, the fixed cameras is outdated for nowadays. RE2 was supposed to have fixed cameras too like the old titles and I think that would've been fantastic, playing with 2 different perspective would satisfy both new and old players but they scraped that idea for some reason. The problem of this new camera and no door animation is that it makes the game too short, no wonder speedrunners are finishing in only 50 mins Capcom should have compensated for that. The ammo creation will be back again I think, it was a good feature in RE3 and RE2R had something familiar. I might give the game a chance but knowing that the originals still better like you said, but this time I'm not Pre ordering the most expensive edition like I did in RE2, this time I'll wait until the release which is April 3rd and watch some gameplays to see if it's worth the penny or not 😁
  15. You'll find a lot of recommendations in various threads in the death metal section: https://www.metalforum.com/forum/153-death-metal/ My favorite newer bands with old school elements are Disma, Funebrarum, Cruciamentum, Dead Congregation, and Grave Miasma. But there's so much good stuff out there that I get kind of burned out going through it all. Have a look through those threads first, and let us know if anything catches your ear.
  16. So, i need some new death metal bands to listen to! I've always listened to old school death metal and shit but lately i've been getting pretty bored... What are you guys reccomendations for modern DM bands? Preferably with thrash or old school elements. Thanks :)
  17. I seem to be dipping in and out of the forum a bit recently due to family/personal issues mostly. Hope to be back more when things are more stable and my mind is in a better place. You lot are the best ❤️

  19. That's great! May I ask how far along you are in your studies? And which areas/thinkers you are most interested in? I am particularly familiar with the Frankfurt School of critical theory but most interested in the work of Paulo Freire. Other thinkers I enjoy are Camus; Kierkegaard and Plato. How about you?

    I'm not a die hard fan of Resident Evil, but I have played through 2 and 3 quite a bit since they first came out. That new Nemesis looks mediocre, couldn't believe it the first time I saw it. Doesn't bode well that they messed him up. They should've just stuck with the original and cleaned him up a little, that's a no-brainer. I do like that the remake is using the RE4 camera, but it might compromise the feeling of the original. No Mercenaries mode is lame. And I wonder if you can still make your own ammo. I might play it out of curiosity, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it. I already know I'd still prefer the original. Maybe that makes me a "criminal" like Chainsaw
  21. Alcest - Ecailles de Lune This really isn't the type of thing I would ever have expected to like, not really being into shoegaze or post-whatever genres at all, but someone recommended this album to me, and what a pleasant surprise. Then again, just about anything with reverb-drenched guitars immediately gets the horns from me...maybe that's why I like this so much. Excellent vocals as well.
  22. Lurker of Chalice is hot on my radar at present. Basically it is the precursor to his Scar Sighted album under the Leviathan name so might be the wrong end of his range for your tastes. I love it though.
