  9. Great choice! Did you hear the recent unfortunate news about Imprecation guitarist Wes Weaver? Lost a great one, there. NP: Gorguts- "From Wisdom to Hate" This should get so much more credit than it does.

  10. Pretty sure we've had this discussion in a couple of threads on here before. Interesting topic, though. Being female, I can tell you that it's extremely difficult to find other women who like metal (but I've always lived in the southern tier of the US, so I would imagine they might be easier to find elsewhere). Sure, there are certainly women who like metal, but we comprise such a small percentage of what is a massively male-dominated genre. I've never met another female metal fan "in the wild". When I go to concerts, the crowd is usually around 90% male. That number rises even more overw

  15. Edited FA's list to save me typing a ton of the same stuff. In addition: Gorguts - Colored Sands (2013) - this album massively upped the Gorguts' game and was my pick of top album for the 2010's. Containing songwriting that most bands can only dream of and musicianship that is unrivalled in my opinion, this is a weighty and varied album that despite it's forays into other genres still remains a death metal beast at it's very core. Akhlys - The Dreaming I (2015) & Melinoë (2020)- 2 of the greatest modern bm albums in my collection (both sitting on vinyl on splattered effect

  19. There are so many, it's hard to know where to start. What I've been playing nonstop recently: Ad Nauseam - Imperative Imperceptible Impulse Abigor - Totschläger Deathspell Omega - Drought; Chaining The Katechon; Paracletus Gentle Giant - The Power And The Glory (finally got into this amazing band over the past year or so) Return To Forever - Where Have I Known You Before; Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy (RIP Chick Corea) Other relatively new or new-to-me stuff that's been in heavy rotation at some point over the past couple years: Blut Aus Nord - Memoria Vetusta I

    We binged the crap out of the Great British Baking Show over the winter and wouldn't you know it, I had tons of relaxing and even fulfilling baking dreams. Definitely a better night's sleep than I got with murder mysteries

    Dreams

    I've been bored out of my mind thanks to the pandemic. I have a very morbid fascination so naturally a few weeks ago I started binge watching documentaries about serial killers and spending all day reading about them. No surprise the night before last I woke up in a cold sweat after dreaming that one of them was after me. 🤣 I just scrolled up and saw this. Apparently nightmares about serial killers isn't all that uncommon.

    Right place at the right time, I guess. I've been very alone all my life. I've always felt like I can't relate to most people or like there is some sort of disconnect from me at a fundamental level. I often feel like I'm trapped in a glass box and the other people are on the side of the glass, and I can see them and they can see me, but I can't really pass through the glass to join them...I don't know if that makes sense, but I've read about other people who feel like this, too. I grew up in isolation and I've had to move around a lot ever since I was a kid, so it was very difficult to me

  27. I do that too! The clean stuff really helps with breathing and it seems to help me keep a more consistent tone. My voice has been weird since Covid though, TBH I'm not sure if I'll be doing live vocals again. The guy from Jute Gyte apparently had the cops called to his home by a mailman who thought he was torturing someone, and he had to let them in and show them his recording studio before they'd believe him...

  28. Man, I can't play or do vocals after drinking anymore. I just don't enjoy it. My favorite vocal exercises for growling are actually clean singing warmups, I find that I have a lot more control if I spend some time doing those first.

  29. I really enjoy it so far, although I'm going to take out some other translations and see if I can find one I like better. I keep getting knocked off track. Maybe now that my son is back in school during the week, I can carve out some reading time again. @Balor, you might like Roberto Calasso's "The Marriage Of Cadmus And Harmony". It's chock full of great insights into the Greek myths.

    Books?

    Yes! It's a very shocking and eye-opening read, especially for me (since I'm an American...) and many of the things the government tried to lead us to believe post 9/11 were exaggerated or fabricated or half-truths, trying to justify their involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan and "the war on terror". I actually got to interview the author for my thesis via Twitter and Skype, which was awesome. At the time I remember him talking about a new book he was working on called Portable Happiness but to my knowledge it hasn't been published yet. I know that there have to be a lot of legal proceedings an

    Thanks, I'm really not sure where I'm going to start, I want to read all of them at once because they all sound so interesting but that would be impossible lol. I really need to finish the books I'm reading now first, honestly. I have a really bad habit of starting books but hardly ever finishing them. The last book I read all the way through for the first time was Guantanamo Diary for a university seminar back in 2017 (which is excellent, by the way).

    Antigone was great, though I mainly read it as some context for a section of Heidegger's Introduction to Metaphysics. It was actually pretty short, and it only took me about two hours or so to read. I would definitely recommend it! It has been a long time since I read The Brothers Karamazov, but I always remember liking the scene with the Grand Inquisitor. I need to read it again too.

    Speaking of Greek stuff, I actually just started reading Antigone last night! I have wanted to read Crime and Punishment for a while, but have never gotten to it. However, I did read The Brothers Karamazov, and I enjoyed it greatly.

  43. I never saw it before and I never would of guessed it was a gothic metal album. Except for the rose thorns and dark camera filter... and the fact the band's name is a reference to blood and the album title is the words "October" and "Rust" put together.

    Lots of good books on this list! I a few of the Sartre/Camus books a few months ago, and they are interesting. If you want any input on what to go to first on your to-buy list, then I cannot recommend getting into Kafka enough! As to what I am currently reading: Being and Time - Martin Heidegger The Temple of Dawn - Yukio Mishima The Illiad Book I - Homer
