    Hi there

    I'm a 33 years old guy from Hungary. In my childhood I listened those well-known bands like Guns N' Roses, Nirvana, Metallica... as most of us, I guess. I was 14 when heard the Midian by Cradle Of Filth. The atmosphere of this record amazed me and opened a gate toward metal music. However, later I listened mainly power metal and some of thrash. But nowadays, for a few years ago, my favorites are, or some of them: Morbid Angel, Carcass, Obituary, Vintersorg, Opeth (rather early), Emperor. Recently I've found the Tomb Mold, probably they will get up on my list. By the way, for some time I read the forum, especially the "Death Metal" and "Deep and meaningful" sections, and hope to find my place among you.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Since my last post we’ve had Burzum, Mayhem, Carcass, Judas Priest and King Diamond played in the pub. This is a public bar, front room, on a Thursday afternoon I’m talking about. What an amazing place. I just want to hang out here to listen to music, let alone drink.

    We actually have a common term in Finland for the effects moon has. It´s called Kuuhulluus (Moon craziness), and a person who is prone to this is called Kuuhullu (Moon crazy). 😁

    As much as I'm not into the "wooooo, moon magic" aspect of it, I've noticed that the moon seems to have an effect on me as well - a full moon and the days around it seem to coincide with either more effortless creativity, or aimlessness and depression. It's been that way for a long time. No idea why... maybe it's just a story I tell myself when I happen to feel either creative or depressed and walk outside and see a full moon, it's not like I don't feel those things at other times. But it's my story and I'm sticking to it. 😁

    Well, it´s classified as an "example why it´s a good idea to learn midi humanize and velocity tweaking", metal.. not so much. Now, because my opening statement could be considered "harsh", some good words need to follow. "All I know is that writing this and listening to it made me feel better." That´s exactly what music is about! Expressing yourself, getting a mental relief and a source for enjoyment. It´s amazing that you have found a way to use your adversities to spark creativity. Just keep doing stuff, and you will constantly evolve and learn new things, therefore getting even more tools to use your creativity with.

    Hello there

    Nice to make your acquaintance 😊 My musical taste is varied, and while for most of the artists/genres that I like I have (offline) friends to discuss this with, none of them really appreciates metal to the extent that I do. So I figured I that might as well subscribe to this forum. I suppose that I mostly like black metal, in all of its incarnations (which certainly doesn't mean that I like every band labeled as such) including the arguably-trash-rather-than-black first few records of Venom, which were incredibly important to me when I was 15/16 yo. At that time, during the mid 1980s, the distinctions between black, death, thrash and even speed metal were vague; in retrospect the term 'extreme metal' is more convenient (see the next paragraph for examples of my taste). But I also enjoy some more mainstream metal like Iron Maiden, the 2nd and 3rd of Metallica and about half of the oeuvre of Manowar. Some other bands/artists that I like (and in many cases just a bunch of their records, or maybe even just a few songs, not everything): Bathory, Possessed, Exodus, Slayer, Mercyful Fate/King Diamond, Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Voïvod, Destruction, Kreator, Onslaught, Darkthrone, Burzum, Immortal, Ildjarn, Veles, Vlad Tepes, Skálmöld, Blackdeath, Klabautamann, Alcest, Nav' (HABb), Root, Sammath, Todesstoß, Absurd, Akitsa, Al Namrood, Besatt, Book of Sand, Botanist, Brujeria, Darkspace, Enthroned, and more. That seems like a lot, but whenever I read a magazin about Metal, it is always full with bands that I've never heard of! The mystique/drama (whatever you want to call it), that is mostly seen in the black metal scene also has my interest. I find it often both ridiculous and impressive at the same time! Some non-metal music that I like (again, not everything) includes hard rock, stoner rock, krautrock (e.g. the first 8 or so records of Tangerine Dream), psychedelic rock, space age bachelor pad music (I mean the genre, not the Stereolab album; e.g. stuff like Les Baxter, Martin Denny and Esquivel), jazz, classical, so-called 'old music', minimal music (like Steve Reich and Philip Glass), ambient, and more. Well, I suppose I might run into some of you on the forums

    Ragnarok - Psychopathology Good old fashioned Swedish black metal, nothing groundbreaking but always fun. Hope to receive the new album next week which should be more of the same judging from the reviews.

    Greets all..

    I'm obviously new to here, been into darker music my whole life. began in the days before there was alternatie and they called it "college rock". I grew up listening to the Cure (i was 12) and progressed in deathrock like Christian Death which I no longer like due to the xtian lyrics, same with Bauhaus. Crossed over into metal through Type-O-Negative and love Draconian and Theatre of Tragedy that things like that. I recently discovered Funeral Doom and love Evoken and recently discovered Atmospheric Black Metal and love Agalloch. As I grow older my mood becomes more doomladen and I'm getting alot more into metal and am coming here to look for bands and inspiration. I'm glad this place exists and has so much traffic, one of the things i'm hoping is the Schwarze Scene they have in Europe becomes a thing in the U.S. because I think there's stregth in community and industrial, goths, and metalheads all share a common view of the world. If that came to be we could have more festivals that rival those in Europe. Anyway best wishes and regards and I hope this community continues to thrive. 9

    Any horror lovers here?

    If it's horror or horror related i'll (basically) watch it. I've been a huge horror nerd ever since i was like 7 years old. I remember watching stuff like "Dawn of the Dead" and "Phantasm" with my older brother on his super 8 projector back in the day. Ever since then i'm hooked and i've been watching everything from early 20's German expressionist movies like "Das Kabinett Des Doktor Caligari" to European horror movies and numerous 80's slasher movies. Unlike most people i'm still stuck in the age of phsyical media. I still buy super 8, 16mm, VHS, blu ray's and 4K discs on a regular basis. The counter should be somewhere around 2500 movies at the moment. I just recently converted my basement into a man cave so i can fit all my movies and movie related stuff in one place. Don't ask me to name my favorite movie or genre cause there is so much stuff i love. Although i do have serious weak spot for the early Universal Horror movies (Frankenstein, Wolfman, Mummy, etc), Hammer horror films and European horror cinema in general (Spanish and Italian movies mainly). If i had to choose an all time favorite it would probably be the Blind Dead movies by Amando De Ossorio or Fulci's Hell trilogy (City of the Living Dead, House by the Cemetery and The Beyond).

    Beginner Bass Player !

    Just keep practicing, study and try out different playing techniques, look into music theory a bit and learn a new song every now and then. Just keep doing stuff really. You will constantly get better, even if the progress can be at times hard to notice. Looks like you got a good start allready.

    My fiancee enjoys those, we just returned from a trip to our preferred beer store and she cam back with about 8 bottles of them. Enjoy!

    If you're just looking for a basic recording setup to get you started, I'd recommend a small USB interface like a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2, a good quality dynamic mic (Shure SM58 will never be obsolete), Reaper for recording software, and Fruity Loops for programming and beat-making. If you want tutorials, there's loads of stuff on YouTube. Other than that, you know, stick with it, keep learning, and have fun.

    Intro Riffs.

    With Varg, I think you have to be in tune with what is going on with him. He is a very interesting human. Ulver has a great track intro off the 95 release titled Bergtatt @7:55 mark Here All the early stuff coming out of and around Scandinavian, just blows my mind. I love the mixing of styles, and genres. The countless demo recordings that sound like some guys threw in some random metal lps in mixer and hoped for the best.

    I was thinking about this, and I realized that it is actually quite odd to link metal (in a generic sense) with negativity. A significant portion of metal music (from any subgenre) is quite exciting and energetic. The dynamism that often takes the center stage in metal almost seems to be the opposite of negativity (which I would associate with inaction). The act of doing anything seems to affirm some sort of dedication to life and existence that a truly negative person would shun. Thus, I find it interesting that "misanthropic" black metal musicians would spend so much time and effort creating something for other people to hear. If you truly hate society, people, and life then why would you even bother to create at all?

    What is metal for you?

    I have to say, although I don't want to sound overly dramatic or whatever, metal music is really an important pressure valve for me. It helped me a lot of times in my life to overcome things and find the strength when other stuff didn't work, and it still does. I also have to create metal music because that's the only way I can vent myself and clean my head from frustration and anxiety, gives me the release and satisfaction that I really can't find somewhere else and it really helpes me to think healthy and live my life in a healthy way. So, it becomes more of necessity rather than just having fun. I mean, it's fun, but it's also more than that. I'm really happy that I found something like that in my life.

    Identify this song

    Having nothing better to do I went to the youtube clip of you hilariously humming that riff. The song is... drum roll please.... Black Sabbath - 'Lord of this World' from the Master of Reality album. It's not the first riff though, it comes in at around the 30 second mark. Thank you, I'll be here all week.
