  3. I remember when that one came out in the fall of 1991, my daughter had just turned 1 year old. The record blew us away, they really went all out writing for that one, it was so much better (imo) than the two albums that immediately preceeded it which did help mitigate some of the bitterness we felt when we learned that Bobby G. had been ousted from the band. We played that thing on repeat for months, even though it only came out 2/3 of the way through the year in September it had to be our most played album of 1991 and the first half of '92. I'd even go so far as to say it's the best post-1990 American thrash album. But then I am an Overkill fanboi. I have to disagree with you though about it being their last great album. They have not been able to surpass it, but they did release a couple more great albums after that in 2000 & 2003 imho. And their last one from 2019 is honestly pretty damn good too. Horrorscope is unquestionably one of Overkill's very best albums though, only surpassed in my mind (arguably) by 1987's Taking Over. Overkill - Horrorscope

  10. Blut Aus Nord/The Works that Transformed God-Zack's BAN deep dive has had me spinning this great album which was foundational in my understanding of millennial music. When I think of the albums that shaped my listening in the aughts, they weren't the heaviest albums necessarily but boundary pushing albums. Sure, Leviathon and BWP have to be mentioned, but for my money TWTTG has to be up there. Not particularly heavy, but visionary in its creativity and reimagining of heavy music that in my opinion are hallmarks of the aughts and pivotal to the sub genre stratification, weird ass metal that has come to color my listening. Listening now, TWTTG is not all that weird, not all that dissonant, and surprisingly melodic and dare I say smooth to the ears. But in 2003, this was out of the box and influential.

    Had my ears vacuumed out yesterday. On Tuesday I'd done something weird to them by using a different kind of ear plug in a jam room which must have dislodged or caused overproduction of wax. Left me having to record an albums' worth of guitars on wed/thurs with one ear completely blocked and another at about 30%. That was fun. Anyway. Makes me appreciate being able to hear again. Take care of your ears lads!

  17. Lemmy said in an interview once that he wasn't going to die broke, but he certainly wasn't rich either. I remember reading he was worth about $10 million when he died which is far less than Hetfield's $300 million or Axl Rose's $200 million, but still that's a lot more than most of us can say. And he did it all on his own terms which is also something most of us can't say. By all accounts I'd say he did alright for himself in every way that matters. True that Robo didn't fit in with the band as well as they'd hoped, but even as an outlier with a "different" sound than what they were known for Another Perfect Day is a good solid album with some really great tracks. I'm not a huge fan of the opener Back at the Funny Farm, or the closer Turn You Round Again, but pretty much everything in between is gold. I consider it better than quite a few of their other albums. Motörhead - Another Perfect Day

    Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder commited suicide yesterday. He was 41. I never liked or listened to TBDM but Trevor always seemed like a genuinely enthusiastic and passionate metal head with his fingers deep into the extreme underground. I'd see him pop up all over social media in comments sections for bands, labels etc. The outpouring of support and love from bands and fans really says a lot. Incredibly sad.

    Arrgh, historical revisionism irritates the living shit out of me. With anniversary of defeat of Hitler, lots of western media are writing about how Russia betrayed its WW2 legacy by invading Ukraine and committing atrocities. Russians were on "our side" in WW2, but the weren't the "good guys". They were as bad as the Germans. This was a nasty dictatorship that murdered and starved to death millions of its own people in the 1920s and 1930s. The Soviets replaced German occupation with Soviet occupation and eradicated political opponents. Their soldiers raped and murdered their way across Europe as the Germans withdrew. Literally up to 2 million women raped by Red Army in 1944-45! In 1944 they started implementing one of the largest ethnic cleansing exercises in history -12 million Germans kicked out of their own homes, robbed and 2 million murdered between 1944-1950. It is in fact ironic that a war fought for Polish freedom ended up with Poland occupied for 44 years by a country that invaded half of it in 1939. Putin is right when he says Russian troops are in Ukraine fighting for the same reasons they did in WWII - rape, plunder, murder and imperial expansion.

  24. Nearly forgot it was Bandcamp Friday! Disharmonium - Undreamable Abysses by Blut Aus Nord Pre-order. I still listen to Hallucinogen regularly. New one will be reliable. Free the Witch EP by GREEN LUNG I am in love with these guys, and missed them play yet again last weekend. Desertfest in Camden was like squillions for a ticket and I really only wanted to see these guys. Traced in Air by Cynic Used to love this album and it will sit well as background WFH music. Sombre Doom by Dead Congregation Only an EP. These guys seem to be active but not exactly fast at writing new material. Succumb to Rot by Corpsessed Meat (or tofu) & potatoes but I think I'll like it. Breaking the Trauma Bond by Voices Not sure if I even listened to this a few weeks ago when I found out about it, but assume I'll get some value from it being Akercocke adjacent. II (pre-order) by Thūn These idiots have a new one on 1 July. Worth pre-ordering on a bc Friday.

  26. Okay not to get political here, I’m sure we are all pretty tired of it at this point but America, UK, what the actual fuck are you doing? Hell’s bells I had to pinch myself to make sure this wasn’t some horrific human rights nightmare, at least Australia failed to pass anti-human rights legislation lucky for us because the High Court probably would’ve ticked it off as being fine. Shit it says a lot when failing to pass the legislation can honestly be viewed as a good thing in comparison to what just happened stateside, not to mention in the not so great any more Britain. Rant over while I’m still somewhat in control of myself.

  38. I couldn't have finished it if it wasn't already 90% there. Still a shitty experience. Came out sounding alright though. I'm just really glad I didn't have to do any vocals with my ear plugged up, that would have been intolerable. I'm in the middle of a vocal recording now, and really hoping I can avoid a brush with The Plague v3.02 or whatever revision my area is currently on. At least wait till I'm done, dammit. Mild cases, quick recoveries, and cold beers all around.

  44. humm well i think maybe i'm a little bit too late to the topic, but anyway... as a woman in metal, i could say that there is no many all female metal bands because of sexism.😑 male all over the years have pushed women to do only "Women stuff" and well.... i'm not getting into that topic, hahaha we will never end.😅 But what I'm trying to say is that as a girl you grow up feeling that that's not for you, so you unconsciously decide not to "act like a man" which means not many women doing metal. cuse "brutality" is a men's thing , so you like it but, is not for you to play metal or perform it. But not only that. Me as a woman creating death metal. I feel a sense of men feeling threatened by a few girls playing in their playground. and they have asked us questions about, who writes the songs? Are you really singing? Are you really doing that? and that's only when they bother to really listen to what you're playing. because normally they don't. Some men are only following this kind of band just because they are "hot babes" or whatever. so even in metal music, we are invalidated, and people judge your music from the fact you are a women, i don't see any other saying "ahh yeah that's because' they are dudes" or "they only famous because it's a all man metal band" over the years now, we have seen gender stigmas going away, and now there's more all female metal bands in the scene. For all that, not many women are into playing an instrument, and not many women are into having a metal band. For me, in a small town it has been very hard to find a female drummer who plays death metal. so we have a male drummer. and even when there are 4 women in the band people still believe that the drummer is the one who runs the band and composes every song, whe basically he only play's the drums hahaha. 🙊
