    I was pretty tipsy when I made that “life-changing” quote. Let’s see if it changes lives in the long-run. NP: Paradise Lost - ‘Icon’. Life-changing!

    Some people thinks this is a nasty and weird animal to have but it's the best thing that happened in my life. Here's my little lovely dove named "Nugget" (first photo is one week after I rescued her)

    Mgla - 'Exercises in Futility' I've known about this band for a while now, and I've seen people post about them, but why has no one grabbed me by the collar and slapped my face a few times to get me to listen to them. Holy hell this is amazing.

    I don’t know how you guys listen to two or three albums simultaneously. It must be a right cacophony. Requiem listens to one album at a time exclusively. NP: Mayhem - ‘Dawn of the Black Hearts’. Hail the old spirit.

    It's just so frustrating. People like me who think so long as you're not actively encouraging people to hate others it's fair game are in the minority. I think things will only get worse and the next generation will essentially be robots - programmed to think and act the same. It's times like these I wonder if there really is some secret group running the world behind the scenes waiting to emerge and claim their place as rulers over the thoughtless masses.

    Infernal Torment - Man's True Nature @salmonellapancake and @Thrashman, I know I've mentioned this one before. Check it out if you haven't. Knuckle-dragging, bludgeoning mid-90s DM from Denmark that wouldn't have sounded out of place in the Long Island scene.

    Greatest Song to Close an Album

    Great call on the Gettysburg Trilogy from Iced Earth. Those tracks are epic - Ripper Owens is just next level. Actually it annoys me a bit that Jon Schaffer wouldn't try to do more in the line of those historical narrative driven songs. 'The Glorious Burden' is by far my favourite Iced Earth album.

    You definitely shouldn't work with a "label" that wants to charge you to put your own music out. If you're funding it then the only thing they're offering is their connections for distribution and promo. You'd be better off hiring a PR company at that point. As far as finding a "real" label, I wish I had some good advice for you, but I'm not any kind of promotions expert. I'm lucky that a couple of small labels have seen fit to put out music by a couple of bands I've been involved with, and I'm lucky to have found a few reviewers who seem to genuinely enjoy some of what I've done. The only way things have ever come together for me is by making personal connections with people in local scenes and online communities.

    At the very least you need a good-quality recording deck in good working order, which can be a problem these days since most of the high-end consumer gear is decades old. Lots of little moving parts equals lots of different ways for things to fail. I haven't dealt with any of the currently available new consumer-level tape decks to judge their quality, but I wouldn't waste money on a knockoff brand. Keep in mind that even if you find a good deck, you'll still be making these one at a time, unless you invest in a real duplication machine that can run a few copies at once. Then there's the cassette tape itself - the actual tape inside the shell. You can look around on forums for better/more information than I can give you, but it seems to me like high quality tapes are getting harder and harder to find. Normal-bias cassette tape is ok, but brightness/clarity/overall fidelity compared to the source material (in my experience) is inconsistent and somewhat lacking at best. One of my bands is actually dealing with this very issue right now and it's been a shitshow. Our first duplicator did a terrible job and had no quality control; the tapes were unusable and the company wound up refunding us. The second company did much better overall, but doing a quick spot check this morning, two tapes out of the six that I had time to check were faulty. And this, I stress, is coming from a "real" company with "real" equipment. The kicker for us is that our release show is tomorrow night. All of this is on top of the other pitfalls that tapes are subject to, especially fragility and loss of fidelity over time. In my opinion tapes are a waste. They can definitely sound pretty good, if the stars align in your favor, and it's neat being able to record and listen with that kind of spontaneity, but no amount of nostalgia or glorification of physical media makes it worth the hassle for me.

    Paradise Lost - ‘Draconian Times’ What a glorious, wonderful album this is. If you’ve never heard it, try it out. For those that know, relive it. Metal reached its perfection point.
