    What's on your mind?

    Absolutely epic band practice today, the guys are really locking in. It's sounding better than it ever has, and better even then hearing it in my imagination when conceiving these ideas. I'm beyond elated right now. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk

    What's on your mind?

    I got to do some work on a big collaborative mural at a downtown gallery. I'm doing an eight-foot-tall monster face. I'll post some pics of the whole thing when it's done. Pretty fucking beat right now from being up and down a ladder for nine hours yesterday, but I'd forgotten how good it feels to work really big and actually spend some time focusing on something without being distracted.

    Who was baptized?

    I was baptized and even confirmed at the Episcopal Church I went to growing up. Then I read the Satanic Bible and never looked back.

    Hey BAN, here's the sketch I mentioned. I don't know if they'll wind up going forward with this idea, but I'm pretty happy with it regardless. Would be fun to turn into a painting.

    Yes but not bought from Amazon. So in essence iTunes stuff imported. Luckily any paid for Bandcamp stuff is in my collection there on the BC site but my music being all in one place is a thing of the past with Amazon. Getting me some shelving and going back to vinyl and cds, fuck em!

    Controversial Metal Opinions

    So you searched and didn't find what you were after, and now you gave up because you "know better"? Sounds like a cop out to me. As Will had mentioned, there are several orders of evolution filling the "gulf" between Judas Priest, Metallica, and Morbid Angel. While you're passing off gradual changes and tweaks as not being what pushed the genre forward, what is Kill 'em All besides a few gradual changes and tweaks beyond Accept and Raven? What is Morbid Angel but some gradual tweaks beyond Possessed and Death? Both bands took some influence from other sounds, like Metallica grabbing some hardcore punk aggression and Morbid Angel bringing in half of the seminal grindcore band Terrorizer to its rhythm section and their own take on Eddie Van Halen's soloing style, and that doesn't make them any less groundbreaking for not being all that far ahead of the pack. Metal wasn't created in a vacuum, it sprang up through the work of several bands and several influences, and those influences have all ran off into several different directions over the years, just not at the rapid pace that some people believe when working with an abridged history of the genre. Just as the gap between Artificial Brain and throwback death metal "ain't that big", neither was it when a million bands sprang up around death metal in the late 80's/early 90's, all playing slightly different varieties of basically the same thing. That didn't make it less innovative, it made it more personal, they did it their way and had their sound, even if they used the same death metal tool box to assemble that sound. The point I made was to argue catchy vs. saccharine, not to equate the two with one another. My point is that a band like Running Wild can be catchy as shit, and never resort to the same kinds of melodies and hooks that a pop band would use. The false equivalency is assuming that you would need to resort to those kinds of pop music techniques to sound catchy. You can argue that mixing metal and saccharine pop works, and maintain that as your opinion, but I'm far from the only one who would disagree with that notion. They didn't mix anything, they appropriated one token element of metal and put it into J-pop. That doesn't make their music metal, it's just J-pop with guitars, nothing about the songwriting ever changed. Metal wasn't integrated, it's just a prop/gimmick used in in this case. Therefore, this isn't anything new for metal, nor is it anything new for pop, since pop/rock bands have been appropriating "metal" guitars since the 80's. Again, if you think that's all metal has had that's been different in the past 15 years, you really just haven't paid attention. But Aus Nord, Deathspell Omega, StarGazer, Vektor, Vhöl, Lantern, Wormed, Mitochondrion, Cultes Des Ghoules, Negative Plane, Ulcerate, Black Harvest, Satan's Host, Anhedonist, the list of bands in many genres just goes on and on of forward thinking and revolutionary acts from all over the metal spectrum over that timeframe. It's time to pull your head out of the sand dude. Nobody is telling you not to listen to Babymetal and Issues, but maybe do some research before making false assumptions about the creative process being dead in metal.

    What's on your mind?

    Just threw together that rough black metal rehearsal track, most of the time just went into setting up. There are only two of us, so a microphone for the guitar and and a microphone for the drums made it pretty simple. He only had a 2 channel input, so we had to do the vocals after the take was up, but we got a decent take within a few tries. I'm not sure if the drummer is going to try to mix it or not, and I feel like it might need more lyrics and vocal lines, but I may have something to share soon. I'm surprised at how decent it sounds, given that it is technically basement black metal. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk

    I thought it was the seeds only that were toxic to them but it turns out it is the whole plant. Just waiting for bloods to check out as leaving no toxins in him which screw up the kidneys but the fact that he is feisty enough to be refusing them taking his temperature is a good sign. Thanks, he's coming home tomorrow for that head rub. Gf is worse today.

    Slayer

    I'll always remember the only time I watched Slayer live back at 2005. They played the main stage @ Exit festival in Serbia. Anyway, it was a rainy day, and black clouds were all around. The whole pit was in mud and water and then Slayer hit the stage. People lost their mind, I remember that one small girl/women went into pit with a couple of big guys and just DISAPPEARED in a violent fight in mud and rain. After that, a couple of guys stole the ambulance van and drove in the center of the crowd. After that, they got on top of the van and cheered the band. Tom looked at them and said: Serbs! Lud! ("Lud" means crazy). One more thing was when it started raining like hell when they started playing "Raining Blood", what a trip. It was cold and rainy but there it is, it was a crazy experience for a fifteen year old.
