    I'll have you know I read the whole thing. Surge finds some interesting stuff, sometimes. Good dude. Glad he got a job after getting his degree. I know he was trying to make a better life for he and his wife.

    If it weren't for beer nerds like us, we'd all be stuck with 1980's piss domestic swill for choice. Maybe just Bud Light for us yanks and Fosters for you folks on the wrong side of the planet. Be grateful for beer nerds.

Went in just to grab my daughter a couple for her birthday and walked out with a stack.

  28. Stop...you're going to make me blush. 😁 I am actually alive and well, and amusingly enough just happened to be looking in on the forum late last night when I saw my name go up, so I figured I'd check in. Didn't mean to completely wander off like I did, tends to happen with me sometimes when it feels like conversation at a place has gotten too quiet or fallen into too much of a rut...something else will grab my attention and off I go...and yeah, the new job, while not overly taxing by any means, definitely has moments where it needs a lot of my time (the next several weeks for example). So, that certainly doesn't help. As for Whitenoise and my taste, there is quite a bit of overlap. We definitely cover a lot of the same ground, and I've pulled some good reco's from him over the years, but he's right when he says we have different priorities in our music. Usually a lot of the stuff he likes best would get just get a "not bad" rating from me, and he'd probably say the same about a lot of my personal favorites. In recent years my tastes have been running toward bands that like to hide a surprising level of melody under a thick layer of fuzzy production...the so called "raw black metal" trend. Though, I'll admit, it's a trend that's quickly wearing out its welcome. I'm also probably a lot more forgiving of the use of synth, even though I seem to be one of only 5 people who's already over that Moonlight Sorcery band that's making everyone cream their shorts. Regarding my year end list...honestly, I got tired of trying to whittle it down to a manageable number, and since there was no real pressing need to have one, I figured why make myself nuts, and basically just kind of stopped working on it. If you want to see it "as-is" though, I'm more than happy to post my rough list. Hope everyone is doing well

  30. Yeah man, killer shit. Saw them back in 2016 with 3 other war metal bands in a dive about the size of your kitchen. Trust me when I say that you can only take so much war metal live in one sitting. I think my ears are still ringing 8 years later... Said other bands on the bill: Abysmal Lord (NOLA) - Exaltation of the Infernal Cabal Abysmal Lord (NOLA) - Disciples of the Inferno Caveman Cult (Miami) - Supremacia Primordial Caveman Cult (Miami) - Blood and Extinction Wørsen (Jax, FL) - Grand Scheme Wørsen (Jax, FL) - Stronghold Saturnine (Jax, FL) - Shield The Light in a Veil of Darkness

  32. I've known this band for about 2 years, when I discovered their second album, Grand Currents. When you know that these 3 brothers formed Hammerhedd in 2012, that the guitarist was then 9, the drummer 7 and the bassist 4, it makes you smile eventually, except when you watch their first videos. And that's when we calm down. It's enough to see them covering Sepultura covers in their garage... Now aged 21, 19 and 16 respectively, the 3 brothers have already released 3 albums and 1 EP. Stamped Thrash Metal on Wikipedia and other sites, Hammerhedd's music goes far beyond that. It's aggressive as Thrash, with lots of palm-muting, snarling vocals, but there are plenty of progressive moments. One of my finest discoveries of recent years, if not THE finest. Hammerhedd - Essence of Iron (EP) (2018) Hammerhedd - Nonetheless (2023)

  33. Haha Surge is still alive, I just saw him post a pic of the eclipse obscured by clouds yesterday on the 13 man txt thread we're both a part of. But he doesn't really pop in there so much anymore and neither do I really. I spend more time here. He threw in the towel on his former commercial carpet cleaning business a couple of years ago and went out and earned himself a high falutin college degree. So now he's joined the actual smart people workforce and he doesn't seem to have the same kind of free time like he once used to. I'm sure he still posts on a metal forum somewhere like NCS probably, but I don't have to tell you there are only so many hours in a day for this shit. Surge and I do have a reasonable amount of overlap musically, but his tastes seems to be just as specific as mine if not even more so, just in slightly different areas. So like we both consume a ton of black metal, but I'm more into caustic riffy Norsecore, Finnblack, first wave influenced stuff as well as black/death & war metal while he seems to be super into that fuzzily produced atmo-black right on the edge of lo-fi and some folk metal. We definitely like some of each other's stuff, we do both dig a bunch of the Finnish bands I think, but I think he and I are mainly focused in different areas and probably out hunting for different shit. Same with death metal, he goes more for the mid-paced Swedeath, Bolt Thrower and European style bands, some Chilean death, classic death/doom and maybe some more melodic Amon Amarth type viking stuff, while I cast a somewhat wider death metal net. I like all that kind of stuff he likes as well, (not the Amon Amarth so much) but I do also tend to go more for the ugly brulal and putrid caverncore, Incantation clones and more recently I've been getting into a ton of deathgrind and old late 90's/early 00's era BDM. Mortician, Malignancy, Suffocation, Exhumed, Devourment, Deranged stuff like that which I don't think he has much interest in if any. I didn't either tbh just a few years ago, but this is where my natural progression of heaviness has taken me. Seems I need it heavier and heavier and ever more brutal to get the same high off of it if ya know what I mean. Besides the black and death metal I know he dips his tootsies into stuff like modern day heavy metal and thrash which I have little to no interest in (unless it's been very heavily blackened) while as you probably know I'm heavily into grindcore, hardcore, punk rock, and of course boatloads of crust and stenchore, which I don't think he's too interested in. So you can see when you drill down a bit and take core samples there's not as much crossover between us cool cats as one might think. So sure, to the uninitiated we would both appear to be mostly into black and death metal, same basic shit, right? And it's also true we do both have a strong aversion to prog, hipster black, tech death and twinkcore. But to the well traveled extreme metal connoisseur he and I actually have somewhat different and pretty clearly defined tastes. We could both make top 25 year end lists and only have maybe 4 or 5 albums in common. There I go overexplaining again. Sorry dude, I know you don't read anything I write that's more than 3 paragraphs and that was just 5.

  35. The epicenter of the recent earthquake here in NJ was less than 10 miles from Benedict Donald's Bedminster golf club and burial ground. I'm choosing to take that as a sign from Jehoshaphat that the orange menace better watch his fucking ass.

  40. Heyy καλημέρα! I never expected to be asked something like this, panic attack INCOMING!!! No its fine hehe, i mean its only fair to share some things about me since i'll be joining you guys along your everyday musical journeys. To put it simply i posted almost everyday in another metal group through steam but it pretty much died down and there werent many people to engage with. So i just googled "metal forum" and found this site! I've been a metalhead ever since my school years. Fun story one of my classmates kept sticking his phone to my eardrum blasting Disturbed haha im glad he did that xD Ahh please my english isnt that good i'm glad at least am able to communicate and get my point across, well most of the time 😂 Yeah i love to meet new people also and staring at them creepily until they run away, uhm scratch that last part..thanks for having me! 🥳 (27 isnt even remotely young but thanks for making me feel better 😥) ORKBLUT!!!

  41. Kalimera Yannis, if you're going to be posting daily with us here and since you never properly introduced yourself I guess it's time someone asked who you are and what's your story? I see you're in Greece, and you look fairly young (compared to some of us old geezers) how'd you become a metalhead? And welcome to the Metalforum btw it's always good to get new people. Are you a Greek who's fluent in English, or maybe using a translator or maybe a Brit or an American living in Greece? I need to know these things, your English is very good.

  48. Alright now Cabbage, what kind of dumbass nonsensical drivel is this?? We all slow down as we age?? Older people complain about how some people talk too fast?? Fuck you bruv, you can slow down to a crawl when you hit 40 if you like, but this old geezer's only getting leaner and meaner and faster and faster and more brutal with each passing year. By the time I'm Doc's age I'll be moving at light speed bruv, Mach 874,030. 😎 Haha but ok yeah seriously Chechnya is wack man. 80 to 116 bpm is pretty damn slow. Obviously this was a backdoor way for them to outlaw all or most forms of western popular music. Both top 40 pop music and hip-hop in particular generally have higher BPM than 116. I looked it up, one study said there are four levels of popular musical tempos. They are slow (66-76 bpm), medium (76-120 bpm), fast (120-168 bpm), and very fast (168-200 bpm). I'd think a lot of EDM would be up toward the higher end of that range, 130 to 150 bpm at least, so this must be like Footloose where they think they can protect the kids from the evils of dancing. I guess they couldn't set the upper limit too low or they'd end up outlawing all music completely, even the traditional Chechnyan stuff they want to encourage. 116 seems like a strange choice though, wonder how they arrived at that number?

  50. This is sort of like when I occasionally hear (usually an older person) complain about how some pundit/entertainer/whathaveyou online "talks too fast", and that you don't even have time to laugh at the jokes, accept this is like you gave that older person an rpg launcher and had to find entertaining videos for them at an acceptable speed since old man Mcgarret's known to be a little trigger happy. We all slow down some as we age. It's just the way these things work, and for the record, most of the complaints about younger generation's lack of attention span and constant need for meaningless stimuli and it's effect on developing brains is very valid. Why you would make an insane rule like that is one question. How in the hell you intend to enforce it, though, is quite another. Maybe if they had faster music they'd be able to deploy in a timelier fashion. NP: Brutalism - Solace in Absurdity ▶︎ Solace in Absurdity | BRUTALISM | Comatose Music (bandcamp.com) Decidedly average brutal death. In the right environment I could see them having a sort of home-town hero status. I will grant them that their drum sound is much more tolerable than most others in their niche. Good to catch a buzz during the opening act, if not really a headliner. EDIT: Probably my favorite as well. I feel so conflicted about their material from Unia onward. So much of it is interesting and really brings what feels like a more authentic "folk" essence from that part of the world as opposed to what we're used to getting with most folk-power bands. It also takes a lot longer to really get it's hooks into me, and what we lose from albums like this in their bouncier and unabashedly power-cornball era is too much not to miss. Their identity as a band has clearly changed with good and bad on both sides.
