    Wow, those Pantera covers are pathetic, lol. As for the Cancer album, that's from the original version of Dawn of the Dead, both shows it in the movie and was used as a promonent promotional still. I suspect that if they had gotten the right to use the original it probably would have looked much better.

    I suppose yesterday was the last official day of summer, but it felt like a perfect start to autumn. We went to an orchard, got lost in a corn maze, went apple picking, had a nice meal afterwards. Such days are rare. There's something surreal about being surrounded by acres of trees with the apples hanging off almost like bunches of grapes. Wish I'd gotten more pictures.

    They need slogans, like "Doody Baldrs" or "Ea, Lord Of The Naps".

    Incantation

    I like some Incantation albums a lot, but haven't ever really clicked with Onward To Golgotha despite repeated listens over the past, eh, 23 or 24 years. My favorite is Diabolical Conquest, with Daniel Corchado from The Chasm on vocals -- something about this one just comes into focus for me, more so than the rest of their material that I've heard. @the_thrashing, I agree about the blackened vibe -- they have a flair for creepy angular tremolo-picked melodies, and more of a focus on atmosphere than a lot of other DM from that era. Vicious without being "brutal".

    Funny, when I was fourteen I got a drawing pad and some markers from my grandparents for Christmas and I went upstairs and made a drawing kind of like this but with more flames and less boobs. When my grandma saw it she said she should never have gotten me art supplies. Always liked this painting style.

    Yes, lots. Some of my absolute all time favorites took me a while to get into. My Dying Bride's Turn Loose The Swans didn't click for a year or two, and then one day I had it on headphones while walking around a local public garden in late afternoon and everything just came together for me. I didn't think much of Opeth when I first heard Morningrise, and then a couple months later I was listening to it every day. Ghost Reveries took me something like seven or eight years to enjoy; same with Borknagar's Empiricism. Katatonia's Discouraged Ones and Viva Emptiness both took repeated listens for me to dig, I couldn't stand The Fall Of Hearts when it first came out, Bethlehem's Dark Metal grew on me pretty significantly, Gorguts' Obscura gave me a headache the first time I heard it, Death and Enslaved in general took years for me to warm up to. Couldn't stand Type O Negative or Tool the first time I heard them (Bloody Kisses and Undertow respectively). I vaguely recall completely hating Parallels by Fates Warning in the 90s, and I fell in love with it at some point over the past couple of years. Several others come to mind as well. This is why I always go back to albums I still don't enjoy. I've had my mind changed enough times that I really never know how or when something's going to click for me.

    Viking Doom

    I haven't listened to these bands, but the Metal Archives list them as Viking and Doom: Herjalf Ereb Altor Querimonia As I said, I haven't heard them, so I can't really recommend them; just did a quick search of the archives.

    who would you rather be?

    That sounds tough, man. Although you might have dodged a bullet by not living a purely meat and cheese life... I’ll go Eddie VH. I like the music a lot more and the 80s rock era would have been so fun. A gold medal gymnast or gold medal ice skater?

    Melbourne, so not exactly in your neighbourhood! Yeah, I’m sorry I’ll never get to see him either. I had no real desire in the past, but as I get older he seems to represent something more and more important to me. Booze and cigarettes. But seriously, attitude, wit and independence.

    "Rainbow Mirror" for sure. Not his most accesible record but in my opinion his best one and since you already know PE it should be easy listen for you. I also recommend his album "Frozen Niagara Falls" which is leaning more towards Death Industrial but its a total masterpiece. Dominick is pure genius man

    Oh another thing on my mind: I'm going to have the opportunity to have some stuff professionally recorded through the place I do my guitar and singing lessons. Good thing too because I've got something that is pretty much ready to go and I'd like to pass around trying to put something together.

    Two reviews in one weekend? All work and no play makes Macca a dull boy! Wait a minute...not when I am reviewing top notch releases such as the latest from Overkill and Candlemass. I mean it is like I fell asleep on Thursday night and woke up in the eighties on Friday morning. Like Overkill, the Swedish doom legends are enjoying a new lease of life, this time in the form of Johan Languist (yes,him) who returns to the band after a 32 year gap to ingratiate the memories of anyone with a copy of "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" and an original Master of Puppets t-shirt. Candlemass 2019 are epic. I mean in terms of the sound at least. This plays more like an epic heavy metal record as opposed to a doom record. Yeah, the heavy drudging riffs are still there but there's a real sense sword-wielding, bicep popping warriors flanked by women in metal underwear sat on spiky horses type fantasy. Opening track "Splendor Demon Majesty" is an unashamedly dark opener full of occult promise that pulls of a perfect balance of menacing worship of evil deities whilst also pacing superbly to open the album strongly. Even the most doomy tracks here are still laden with such vocal stylings. "Astorolus - the Great Octopus" (great fucking song title) is an obvious choice here, even given Iommi's input it still doesn't stray to far away from the epic nature the song title and feels well balanced. It rumbles and rolls like a great Octopus would do assisted by some superb lead work along the way that stab through the menacing atmosphere. Likewise, the gallop of "Death's Wheel" drops down in pace to doomy depths for the chorus to become one of the nearest experiences to the 1986 debut heard on here. Let's be honest though folks, this isn't "Epicus..." part two. Not that anyone really wanted that though, right? On its own, "The Door to Doom" stands up as a fantastic record for a band who haven't released anything notable since "Tales of Creation". It is not that recognisable as a Candlemass record though which will no doubt get the diehards moaning into their retro flares and skull effect candlestick holders whilst crying into their earthen drinking vessels full of mead. The only real reminders on here of the doom relationship is the fact that the record on the whole reminds me of a much better version of "13". As I sit listening to "Black Trinity" I hear so much similarity to numerous tracks from Sabbath's last full length that I had to look twice in the instrumental parts to make sure I didn't have the library on shuffle. That withstanding, "House of Doom" is a superb doomy romp with monumental riffage and pace and horror themed synths to build the atmosphere to boot. This was on the the EP of the same name from last year and is probably may favourite track on here certainly in terms of its authenticity to the Candlemass sound of old, chiming church bells ringing to fade as the track closes. If anything the record gets doomier the final 2 tracks. Check out the riffs on "The Omega Circle" if you still need your bed wetting from some punishing doom metal before the band signs off on a job well done. There is only really two criticisms I can level at the record, one being the utterly pointless filler of "Bridge of the Blind", a crap ballad dropped in after just 3 tracks of excellence is just out of place both in terms of the timing of its placement and the marked difference in pace from the rest of the album. Secondly, too many tracks start the same way. There's about 3 or 4 that start with some slow picked strings and Languist crooning as an introduction to the tracks proper. It just gets old after the second or third time even though on each occasion the track is soon hit by an epic riff or stomping pace change, Sadly, if it wasn't for the shit ballad this album would have afforded a higher rating as it makes very few bad steps along it's length. Buy it for the love of metal though, not just because it's Candlemass. 4/5

    Slayer

    I've been diving back into Slayer's catalogue lately, partly due to seeing (some of) their set in Melbourne at the Download festival. I've been on and off - mostly off - Slayer since a kid at my school was playing 'South of Heaven' in Drama class at school back in 1994, but I sort of regret that I didn't take the show more seriously when I finally got to see them. But it was at the end of a long day and my friend had no interest, plus Ghost started shortly after... Anyway, the point is that I went back through my CDs of Slayer and have confirmed, conclusively, that the greatest Slayer album is 'God Hates Us All'. It's aggressive, philosophical, (mostly) focused, and has two of their most intense songs in 'Disciple' and the amazing 'Threshold'. I also love the moment in 'New Faith' when the music stops and Araya screams "I keep the bible in a pool of blood so that none of its lies can affect me". Glorious stuff. I also played 'Reign in Blood' about 12 times in a row in my car about a month ago, and I guess it's ok, but I still don't love it. Even in the context of 1986 I don't quite see why it's become the classic that it is today, although I was only 6 years old in 1986 and certainly had no knowledge of thrash, Slayer or anything other than Voltron on TV. Hail 'God Hates Us All', the true masterpiece of the true Slayer.

    Weed

    I like weed, but I drink way more often than I toke. The last time I was high, a few weeks ago, I was in a bar (so, drunk at the same time, great combo), I had that THC wax for the first time, and I wound up so far gone I accidentally draped my overcoat over the bouncer's head trying to navigate to the bathroom. It was about that time I had to call a taxi to get home before I got myself shot, but I wound up asking him to drop me off just three buildings down to get some Taco Bell, then walked about a mile and a half back home in sub-zero weather because I'd forgotten it was acceptable to call a taxi company more than once. When I finally did make it back home, I spent about an hour and a half trying to watch TV and listen to Megadeth at the same time before falling asleep.

    Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister

    There's a lot of truth to this, but music is very personal, and the attachment that we feel to it and the artists that create it can feel a bit like a friendship. I see both sides of it, but I think Lemmy would appreciate some decorum and just having some sex, drugs, and rock n roll in his honor rather than mourning. Sent from my HTCD160LVW using Tapatalk
