  1. What horror movies would you say stand out of the crowd? When I think of a horror movie, I usually think of something like Insidious or Alien. I actually like Alien, but not because of the story or characters. I just think the atmosphere and filmography are quite good, and that's how I feel about most horror movies (but not all of them). It could be that I'm out of the loop or just watch the wrong horror movies. To be clear, I don't have any problem *at all* with the concept of horror as a genre of film. I do find that the particular horror movies that I've been exposed to, for the most p
  2. I think many from at least a certain generation have grown up listening to more and more extreme music over time. This has sometimes coincided with a general interest in the extreme, and often dark, for those for whom metal wasn't "enough". Sometimes it can be a benefit to indulge in something dark, or heavy, or radical, or whatever it is. I know this one person who is older and a bit uptight about etiquette, and a bit of a pushover. Sometimes I just imagine if he listened to death metal until he liked it that it'd balance out his personality lol. There's also the issue of acceptance. Som
  3. Pretty much all music sounds like garbage to me today, so if I guess I'm listening to Xasthur because it's slow, boring, repetitive, and bleak.

  6. Thoughts on horror movies... Most horror movies have a terrible story and boring characters. That's why I rarely watch horror movies. I find that a horror movie is sometimes nice to watch when I feel some anxiety, but I rarely watch one anyway. I think the best horror movies are the ones that are carefully taken from a well-written novel, or something like that. As it stands though, horror movies are more focused on scares than anything else, which is unfortunate because I don't find any of them scary really.
  7. I think the point of having genres is to enhance communication, and for that matter it's ultimately the community that should be defining what falls under what genre, and what each genre is. From a more philosophical standpoint, you could attempt to define genres by delineating various musical traits and creating a space from these musical traits. Then you could populate this space with bands (data points) and employ statistical learning algorithms to try to find clusters. Each cluster would be given a genre label, and bands that fall around the periphery of a cluster or don't fall into
  8. I've been listening to recent releases to try to find new stuff to enjoy. The Ruins of Beverast - Exuvia

    I finished playing Monster Hunter World, and now I'm playing Earthbound. I have a long history with video games going back to the turn of age 5 with Super Mario World. I've never tried Xbox, but I've been loyal to Playstation games (I have a PS4 currently), emulation, and sometimes computer games. For emulation I either use the keyboard or an F310 Logitech controller, which seems to be one of the better cheap controllers.
  10. I have to say that I never understood the appeal of Six Feet Under.
  11. I'm listening to Portal - Swarth. I never felt like I fully connected to this music before, but right now is the first time I'm really enjoying it.

    I do have some memories with first listening to Mayhem when I was 16 (26 now). It was the same period of several months when depression swept in under nights of insomnia. I was more tired, more lazy, and ultimately it got to the point where I would wake up early in the morning to do my physics homework before going to school at 8 am. During these early morning rushes through my physics homework I would listen to Mayhem, especially Freezing Moon.
  13. One time I was withdrawing from Cymbalta after not taking it for a few days, and for me the first thing I notice when I quit is just this intense emotionality. So I was just in my room and I figured I'd smoke some cannabis and that that'd make me feel better. Nope, it just amplified the intense emotionality. I ended up crying like a child while listening to death metal, and I could swear I could hear the world's grief in the music. This went on for hours until I was exhausted and went to sleep. Another time I had too much cannabis and I was really tired and laying down. My thoughts were s
  14. Hi FatherAlabaster. I don't have that much of an attachment to music that I like, so I tend to jump around a lot and just listen to whatever I'm in the mood for. Classically I'm quite a fan of death metal bands like Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Incantation, and that kind of thing, but most recently I've quite enjoyed Abominable Putridity's recent album. It activates the metaphorical slam tumor in my brain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGGK93eqAMo As for DSBM, which is kind of a loosely defined genre, I definitely enjoy Leviathan and Shining, as well as many other more underground-type
  15. I've been listening to a lot of black metal and death metal lately, so I thought I'd join a metal forum to perhaps share some music and learn about new stuff. Depressive black metal is probably my favorite subgenre. I have various other interests as well.
