  1. What's on your mind?

    I suppose it might work. I´m just bit too self-conscious about it. Venting out a bit of frustration allready helped a bit. It´s a bit of a change for me since 2 years ago i had basically a cellar bunker for my music stuff and i could do whatever without anyone being aware. I do have plenty of other stuff going on that need more critically my attention so music stuff has been on a bit of a back-burner anyways though.
  2. What's on your mind?

    Listening to some blackish stuff i´ve been working on for couple days. Programmed drums and not having a bass is really killing my creativity, not to mention living currently in an apartment so not being able to scream the vocals myself. Almost feel like halting the musical stuff until i get to a situation which makes creating stuff actually fun again. That situation just might be awfully far away.. I feel like everything i do musically currently lacks life, originality and purpose.. Might need to try do something totally new, like electronic dark ambient or something like that..

    Hail from Finland, welcome.

    Apparently the myth that you are never farther than 3 feet of a spider is quite true (with some exceptions). So good luck hating spiders.
  5. Most anticipated albums of 2018

    The song they have released at least has one great riff, and that one of course got some (pointless) controversy, people claiming it´s copied from Strapping young lad. lol I love what Devin Townsend commented about it, very cool. I remember back in the day when the purely thrash dudes started expanding their musical interests, they started to like Pantera and Machine head etc. I steered to total different direction going to black, gothic, death metal etc. (I still like Pantera of course, just never was a "huge" band for me)
  6. Jared Dines' Solo Contest

    Focus a bit more on the continuity (try to reduce the gaps, and when have one, try to make it have a purpose). Also you need to make the tone "larger", a bit of reverb etc. I´m a shitty lead guitarist myself so can´t comment on your playing technique, apart from the fact that the flow really wasn´t there because of the gaps. Made it feel like it was recorded in several different takes. Even if you choose to record this way, it´s possible to do it without killing the notes too early. Heres a clip i made just for a laugh like a year ago, not impressive playing techniques by any stretch of the imagination.. but the solo has a bit of a flow to it anyway, and it was made with maybe 3 separate takes. https://www.dropbox.com/s/myanx0z5w2pgvua/2017 JR project 07.mp3?dl=0
  7. 50 Most Important Metal Bands of 21st Century

    I´m far too lazy for something like that, not to mention how hugely music is a mood thing for me. But i would certainly enjoy reading a thread like that.
  8. 50 Most Important Metal Bands of 21st Century

    Well yes.. and they are very popular too, which was sort of my point. The dude doesn´t approve.
  9. Most anticipated albums of 2018

    I suppose that pretty much confirms it´s not true.
  10. Most anticipated albums of 2018

    Not that i have seen.. I´m not really bothered enough myself to do it, just something that caught my eye.
  11. Little known gothic metal bands

    Huge thumbs up for The sins of thy beloved recommendation, It´s one of those albums that has stayed on my playlist for nearly 20 years. To be honest i don´t know how known band this is, but i have to add Beseech to the list. The gap musically between old and new stuff is rather huge.. but it has happened before *cough* Paradise lost *cough*.
  12. What's on your mind?

    The thing is, metal especially tends to raise a bit of an "elitist" sort of attitude from some people.. It is a genre with a lot of ideological elements. It is also a genre which has evolved from being a niche and rebellious thing to partially a mainstream thing. It´s like theres 2 sides to metal. To some people such things as integrity, originality and being true to the roots of different metal genres are hugely important, and it´s imo a worthy cause to ask for your music. To others it´s more of a feeling thing, if a song makes you headbang, raises emotions and just gives you the effect you wish thats enough. The way to deal with it, is to just accept it really. If someone absolutely hates a band you love, it doesn´t make the band any worse for you right? There is really no reason to be touchy about viewing things differently, or having completely different opinions. To me, what you hate is as integral part of you as are the things you love, and i would prefer the ability to express both freely. Of course senseless bashing just for the sake of it is bit silly.

    Well, we can´t all like everything. I find it interesting how Batushka has been speculated having members from ie. Mgla and Behemoth, quite possibly just clever marketing with the identity bullcrap. I don´t know what it is about the combination with Batushka, that just hits me in the right spots.. it just does (musically, don´t care about other stuff). Most who i´ve seen criticising the band usually seem to blame the 3 things i mentioned.
  14. Most anticipated albums of 2018

    I suppose it´s the secrecy of identities, similarities with Cult of fire, using an orthodox theme etc.. it´s all a bit.. deliberate. I personally love the album, music is the king for me.. always will be.
