    Hmm, i feel like these guys are a little noisier than RotUGF. There's also some cybergrind elements in CUM's work.

    It's not my favorite, though I have a soft spot for System of a Down on rare occasions. I think the hate probably stems from the genre's adoption of a more commercial/rock/rap sound. The people who hate it the most are probably those who are also very concerned about remaining in the "underground."

    Judging by the cover

    I think having a nice album cover is super important. I'm sure im missing out on a lot of good albums, but oftentimes i wont even listen to a new album unless it has intriguing artwork.

    Yeah, I think you'd be better served by lighter strings with more balanced tension (that means that each string pulls with roughly the same force when it's in the tuning you want - there are string tension calculators online). Drop B tuning is the same as C# standard except for the lowest string, so it's going to be pretty tight with a string set intended for B standard. Try the D'Addario Baritone Light set and see if that's more in the ballpark. I used them for years in drop B and drop B flat, although I eventually switched to making up my own sets out of single strings. If the strings don't fix the problem, it can't hurt to take the guitar back to this guy and just show/tell him the problem you're having. If he knows what he's doing he could probably still help you dial it in. A lighter string set might mean you need to tweak the setup anyway - truss rod, bridge height, intonation, etc. That's not hard to do and it's worth learning how, but you don't have to dive into all the details right away.

    Queensryche - Empire ...not Rage For Order, but it'll have to do. Almost thirty years after I still heard it, I'm gaining a new appreciation for just how slick the production is, and just how foundational Eddie Jackson's bass parts are. Tigran Hamasyan - An Ancient Observer

    Perhaps it's a matter of them having too much metal on or in the brain, but I don't understand metalheads. It's apparently fine to write lyrics glorifying actions like rape and murder, brutalizing women including genital mutilation of women, necrophilia, anti-Christian anything... but just don't write some words about race, Nazis, Muslims or whatever flavour of the month that is trending on twitter. I'm just waiting for that fateful ironic day that metal music is no longer about the usual gore, but Tipper Gore instead.

    Fuck sewing man. I actually get a seamstress at a clothes alteration store to put my patches on. Hardly nekro, I know, but neither is sitting there with needle and a thread, pricking my thumbs (something wicked this way comes).

    Lady Guitarist

    Hey There! My name is Melody and I hail from Berkeley, California. I finally finished college studying Climate Science and Native American studies. My passion is guitar and I'm excited for all that I have yet to learn. On my page I've covered Phantom of the Opera by Iron Maiden with all three guitar solos and am soooo excited to share all the music I've been working on recently. I saw Iron Maiden in concert for the first time when I was eleven and WOW. My life is was FOREVER changed. I've seen Black Label Society and OBITUARY in concert - and Obituary invited me to hangout on their tourbus and they told me stories of being in a band for many years. We laughed a lot and sang along to Dio and Heaven and Hell. I am thankful for the opportunities I've had to play music at open mics in the places I've travelled to. Like many of you, music is my life. METAL FOREVER \,,/ I'm also looking to form a band. If you're relatively young, interested, and dedicated to music then reach out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yL3vrTxrvw

    If it is with SW, then I think I should be able to find it! From what I have heard, the split with Evil is pretty good to (at least the Evil side, that is).

    I hear that. Ya gotta jump on it when the labels first put them up for sale. The stuff is fantastic, though. You can find some of it on YouTube and probably some downloads on various websites.

    Pretty good actually. You won't regret if you get it. I need to check on their newest albums I heard they're good as well. It's funny because all these years into Metal I never heard of them, then I saw someone here listening them and a friend told me about them recently and I decided to give a check.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Hate Forest - 'Nietzscheism' I remember that bloke from university. Yeah, it's all coming clear now. Mr Forest. Great guy. Well, it's not a fullmoon, but the wine is flowing rather switfly - dangerously so - considering we're firmly locked down here in Melbourne and there are no exits. Vlad Tepes/Belketre - 'March to the Black Holocaust' is getting a good workout. About as good a work out as I'm getting with my family demanding I do PE With Joe every damn day.

    What Are You Listening To?

    Satanic Warmaster - 'Opferblut' My version is almost certainly not the original 2003 pressing by No Colours Records, but because No Colours don't change the catalog ID when they re-release albums, and there's no dating on the jewel case version that I have, I honestly have no idea which re-release I actually own. Either way, it's a great album with that trademark SW riffage.

    Vlad Tepes/Belketre - 'March to the Black Holocaust' I've got the 2013 Drakkar re-release, but even they go for a lot of money these days. A rare and rewarding split that I bring out on a full moon, when the red wine is overflowing its cup.

    Requiem

    What Are You Listening To?

    I love 'Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia', and I definitely recommend 'Eonian'. 'Eonian is a lot slower, more mid-paced with choirs and things like that, and some of the old school metal fraternity don't rate it, but I think it's actually really enjoyable, especially after a few listens. You might also like 'Death Cult Armageddon', which is the follow-up to 'PEM' and fairly close in style (although shitter). Personally I prefer the two before it, 'Spiritual Black Dimensions' and 'Enthrone Darkness Triumphant', so check them out for sure. NP: Running Wild - 'Blazon Stone' My first Running Wild album, courtesy of True Belief, and I'm really enjoying it. Great riffs here with an infectious 1991 metal atmosphere.

    What Are You Listening To?

    I only discovered it recently. Wasn't familiar the band 'back in the day', and in more recent years I only knew them for the Benton material (which I am yet to be able to enjoy, much as I have always been a bit of a sucker for Deicide). But this album is gold, anyway; and I'm thinking that I probably need to pick up the other non-Benton albums now too.

    Thoughts on metal and negativity

    Traditionally, it has seemed to me that people with a negative disposition are strongly correlated to 'outsider' genres like metal. However, because such a strong emotional connection to music such as metal is made, and because music generally gives listeners a sense of catharsis that is uniquely personalized, through that means people able to overcome whatever negative disposition they may have had. Also, it seems to me that negative outlooks on life are greatly diminished when met with an increased sense of community, and, these days, the metal community seems less divided. It seems, too, that people today are less willing to let one single thing like taste in music define themselves.
