  1. Hey kids, how's about instead of giving you my top 10 albums from some random year in metal I give you my top 10+ albums from each year since my early teens all the way up to the present day in a mix of genres? It'll be mostly metal of course because that's what I mostly listen to, but there will be some other things mixed in here and there as well. Wasn't sure quite where to post this monster but after poking around the site a bit I think this thread seems like the most logical place to me. I initially tried hard to keep this to just 10 albums for each year. There were a few of the 70's

  8. Hello guys and goats, I have been totally slammed and missed metal forum-ing, and mostly lost track of a lot of posts and releases and such. But I do have a few notables I have been spinning and want to share! (I can hear the collective "Thank Beelzebub!" go out across the cybersphere) *Disclaimer! I did not double check the true release for all of these - but according to BC they are 2021s. Sometimes a re-release will sneak its way in or contradict MA, and usually I am a stickler for accurate posting! ALSO - I did not search to see if these were posted already! I also attribute corr

  13. Birthday haul included: Cutthroat razor with stand, sharpening belt/pad, beard shaper (never going to use) and various oils (also a towel and cap which strangely enough doesn't make me look like I am having a mid-life crisis when I wear it). Various wines/meads from Raven Forge and also a t-shirt and absolute fucking beast of a pizza-cutter that I could easily mount on the wall beside my swords. O'Donnell Tough Nut Moonshine off of the folks - spirit infused with essences of aromatic hazelnuts, soft caramel and velvety nougat. Dangerous stuff as I can drink it neat and not

  20. Thanks both. Was okay once the initial disorientation got rationalised to my vision. My mother straight up freaked out when they tried to do her once and she just couldn't go through with it. The experience I take from it is if I ever have to do one again don't ask them for classical music through the headphones. With the blaring and grind of the machine it was like being trapped in some godawful German techno nightclub just in time for the "eclectic" DJ set.

    This band gets mentioned so little, guess because it takes ages until they release new stuff every time. So ridiculously good. Sulphur Aeon - Swallowed by the Ocean's Tide

  24. Checked it out on the way home today. A bit off kilter, but in a good way. Funny you mentioned post rock. I was thinking it reminded me of Rosetta in places. The other band that kept coming to mind was Weakling. Has a bit of that Aquarius Records/ Bay Area sound to it. The drummer is definitely impressive. A lot of unorthodox rhythms. Definitely need a few more times through to really appreciate, but I dig it.

  28. What I think a lot of people may not realize is that extreme metal as a whole, which basically began 40 years ago with the birth of 80's thrash was the combination of traditional early 80's heavy metal, Black Sabbath, Motorhead and early 80's punk, which while not metal was still the original "extreme" music. There would be no thrash metal and therefore no black or death metal as we know it if not for punk. The first wave of black metal and thrash bands of the 80's were all heavily influenced by punk and especially by the aggression of hardcore punk. Death metal sprung directly from thrash so

  33. Keep it real. Make your underwear out of patches too. Tired of seeing all these posers wearing screenprinted band logo panties to shows like they're some kind of elite. If Manowar can wear bedazzled speedo codpieces with bits of real animals sewn on, the least we can do is show a bit more commitment.

    True crime

    It unfortunately is interesting subject matter @blaaacdoommmmfan just shows the morbid curiosity of humanity! Well..to some of us anyway. Yeh seems like most serial killers have fucked up childhoods. Same with arseholes who abuse their dogs and wonder why they go and attack people. And yeh, it no way excuses their abhorrent crimes but just goes to show... I saw a docu years ago and they did tests on criminals pickled brains and i'm certain they came to some conclusion that the parts of the brain that computes lets say 'empathy' was particularly damaged even hardly existing.

  38. The way I see it labels have a place but they can also be an issue to some bands. As others have said smaller labels are helped massively by larger labels distributing their product. Then there are bands who create their own labels and license to larger labels to keep more money and control over their product. However on the flip side there is bands like Flotsam and Jetsam who, while constantly praising their label, never seem to get the same benefits as other bands. Although the world was different in the 80's and 90's labels were a big part of what we could and couldn't get in Aust

  43. Lizard scientists have an argument over the differences between the Northern Blue Lizard and the Southern Yellow Lizard, acknowledging that their range overlaps in the one mountain valley where the Mountain Green Lizard is found, but disagreeing over which traits are most important for distinguishing between them, and whether they're actually looking at three separate species of lizard, or two, or even possibly just one. Are the greens hybrids, and if so, why do the yellows and blues avoid interbreeding outside the valley? Are genetic differences important if they don't preclude hybridization?
