    The demonisation of drill music

    Just search on YT for drill music UK. As I said in the OP, I am not an expert on drill music, and I cannot advise you on what songs are typical of the genre.

    Horns up brothers and sisters!

    I prefer the more extreme styles, particularly Death, Blackened Death, Black and Gothic but I have an AC/DC playlist too bands I like include Cannibal Corpse, Watain, Electric Wizard, Paradise Lost, Behemoth, Rotting Christ, Carach Angren, Slayer and many many more but those get particularly heavy rotation on Spotify. Thank you!

    For me its Paradise Lost's An Eternity Of Lies. It has everything, choral interludes, doom laden riffs and the best non clean singing Nick has done (in my opinion).

    I agree with goth explorer. It's the amount that some people are hoard ing. It's normal to buy enough to last you a week imo but not normal to buy enough for 6 months supply that's just selfish.

    The importance of merchandise

    Given the coronavirus situation now, merchandise is becoming more important than ever. Genocide Organ was going to tour the US, but had to cancel. Luckily they put up a few shirts for sale to help them cut their losses (bought both).

    Varathron- "His Majesty at the Swamp" Horna/Musta Surma- "Vihan Vuodet" Looks like I'm being drawn to old favorites. Haven't listened to these all the way through in what must be 2 years. I think I'll revisit Varathron's "Walpurgisnacht" tomorrow.

    To be honest when I put up this thread on I was a bit concerned I'd asked the wrong question as people are dying of this. All the responses are enlightening and really well thought out and helped me to understand it better so thanks 👍😁 And definitely real sorry for everyone forced not to work because of this people like depraved.luckily Im not affected by this but looking for another job is on hold at moment. My personal and probably wrong opinion is governments surely have to help out those who are forced not to work because of this Up until today like depraved said a few days ago I did not really understand the fuss about the Corona virus and my opinion was I know why gigs are cancelled but is it really necessary I mean really. Now I can see why we need to stop metal gigs and alot of other things as losing friends and family will be terrible, and chances the virus will do this are a real possibility if we do nothing. I'm kinda of hoping this will blow over in a few weeks but at least theres the forum to keep me sane until it does. 👻🦇 empty supermarket shelves are not good either. Some of the sold out items does make you chuckle like all the fresh milk is gone in city near me supermarkets. I mean why? 🤣

    I feel bad for everyone whose livelihood depends on gigs and touring. A few of my friends are professional musicians and they're kinda fucked right now - no idea where or when their next job will be, nothing to fall back on. I'm in the middle of painting one of the last album covers I have lined up, and that's gonna be it for me, professionally, for a couple months at least. I'm staying in. Basically pretending I'm sick, just in case I am, because who knows. The family only goes out for things we need, or walks in the woods. But that's pretty much the way I live anyway. I'm bummed we can't have band practice for a while, but I can jam on my own. I look forward to finally having an opportunity to work on my own art rather than illustrations, for a change; I'm enjoying the school closure because it means we all get more sleep. My son's eighth birthday is today and we managed to get him a couple things at the store. My wife works in healthcare and I'm worried about her getting sick. I'm hoping that if we do get sick, we get through it ok. I'm hoping we don't run out of food. I'm hoping my parents stay healthy, they're in their 70s and I haven't been able to visit them in way too long. Bummed about me personally missing metal shows? Not even a little bit. Public gatherings can fuck right off. Best wishes to all of you in this weird time we've landed in.

    Here in the UK we are just about getting ready for lockdown. I work for a company that supports health care organisations and the lock down is massively overdue. Although the virus does affect primarily the elderly and those with underlying health problems so the quarantine is still necessary for more or less all as the more social contact that goes on means more spread meaning more cases meaning more chance of pneumonia (for example) meaning more strain on resources. My fiancée has a respiratory condition and therefore is of higher risk than myself and if you look at the playbook for that scenario she’s supposed to now be at home for 12 weeks. Her office is still open but today they will have to consider closing. I am home based anyway so thankfully no real disruption other than my face to face interactions now move to conference call but most of my clients are too busy even for that. The additional problem is human nature though and the crowd mentality of panic buying and “everyone for themselves” thought processes. Panic buying is unnecessary and simply not needed - which is how I would describe the people who do it. Thankfully there’s been some positives here like neighbours pulling together to help vulnerable or elderly people in the street or local area. Some supermarkets are giving priority to elderly and disabled people by setting protected times for them to shop first thing as well as prioritising them for home deliveries. Looking forwards to reading some books at least.

    Opeth - In Cauda Venenum ...eh. YouTube keeps suggesting it, and I figured I've been listening to a lot of dad rock lately, I may as well give it another try... well, here we are. ...and there it goes. Like all newer Opeth, some nice parts and I don't hate it, but I found nothing to hang my hat on. Maybe I'll try the Swedish version. It would fit in with the furniture we just bought.

    Women in metal

    So you're saying that women tend to do vocals rather than play instruments because their smaller hands make it harder for them to play competently? Where exactly are you getting your data?

    Women in metal

    I think the reason that women in metal are mostly associated with vocalists (despite the fact that there are women who do other things in bands) is that vocals are the only area in metal music where women would be noticeably different from men. I don't think there is any reasonably basis to determine from the sound of a guitar or drums that the musician playing it must be a man or a woman - in fact, musicians of equal skill would be indistinguishable on the basis of gender from simply the sound of their playing. For vocals, however, a woman would sound different from a man.

    Alright, I bought the DVD, watched it, and here's my take. Firstly, the actual quality of the filmmaking is really good. It looks fantastic, real, and isn't fake or corny in any way, which was one of my fears. As an actual movie, it's really well done. I'm so pleased that it turned out that way. But I have some serious misgivings. Here they are. Firstly, while Rory Culkin was a pretty good Euronymous, despite his googly eyes, I just hated the way that Euro was portrayed. He was weak, uncertain, doubtful and clutching at other people's achievements. There may be a truth to this, but I didn't feel that we had a sense of the massive impact that this guy had, through his letter writing, and more than anything his songwriting. Yes he was human like the rest of us, but his musical vision was squandered in this movie - it was as if he just happened to be floating through events. This is the guy who sat down with his guitar and wrote 'Freezing Moon', 'Deathcrush' and 'Life Eternal'. The man is a musical genius, and this didn't come across at all. I think it would have been nice if they spent just a couple of minutes worth of screen time showing this side of him. That something really magical was coming out of his guitar and his vision. Another thing that bothered me was the use of humour. Yes, black metal is funny as hell, but not in the way it was shown in the movie, with people tripping over things and generally being awkward. A movie like this definitely needs its comedic relief, otherwise it's just too heavy, but it didn't work. Snorre Ruch was a presented as a mentally disabled clown, and maybe he actually is (doubt it), but it came off pretty bad for the guy.. Varg was ok but just lacked any real sense of danger that the actual Varg has and he was too chubby by half. And the Kristian/Varg name joke just went on and on. Maybe Varg was overly insistent that people called him by that name, but surely they wouldn't have kept forgetting this. Metalion looked amazingly like the real Metalion, with that fat kid playing him. It looked just like the photos, quite incredible. Faust also looked like Faust. It would have been good to have a bit more dialogue with these guys though, as Faust just watched some horror movies and then stabby stabby. Why'd you do it Faust? Horror movies. Speaking of which, I found it really hard to watch Euronymous's murder scene. Whereas the Dead suicide scene was pretty traumatic, at least he had control over the situation, and yes it was hard to watch, but also very fascinating and engaging. When Varg started stabbing Euro I started to feel really sick, and it was appalling to watch. Seeing a guy get stabbed a heap of times isn't as much fun as I thought it would be. And when Euro is pleading for his life and saying "I'm all talk", it just sucked. He wasn't all talk - he might have said it to try to save his life - but the whole movie suggested he was all talk, so his life felt so deflating and pointless. And I'll finish with the lack of musical composition. Right now I'm listening to 'Filosofem', and it's amazing. All the music from that period was amazing. Faust playing on 'Nightside', Euro on 'De Mysteriis', the Darkthrone guys (where were they?). Where was Samoth who burnt a church with Varg? I wanted to see these guys. Great ending though with Euro saying "What have you done lately" or whatever he says. Just a brilliant moment. But damn, what a hard movie to watch. Not sure I'll watch it again. And what ever happened to @jonnybagofdonuts? He signs up to the forum, loads up a profile pic, and posts a single link about an interview in a single post, never to be heard of again. What fucked up mystery is behind this I wonder. God bless you Jonny, wherever you are.

    your top 4 doom bands

    hell yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 Lord_Man_Hammer_ is spot on with pallbearer, every album amazing and very good live as well. though not sure my cousin liked them, has not spoken to me much since about the gig, pallbearer are very good and people should give them a go great songs,lyrics, vocal;s music 2 nixa's latest album opus tierra is really good. I mean this album should be really big as its catchy, got great vocals, interesting lyrics and the production they got on the album is amazing the riffs are as massive as the himalayers and this is for a band that pretty much died and had to reinvent themselves. illimitable dolors debut record is great. after the death of there band mate they created this band to pay tribute to there fallen brother. an outstanding doom band from oz but maybe that's the select few to be honest as they seem to hbave a small following 4 to be honest there is no 4 yet as I listen to toomuch black metal and funeral doom as well 😁
