  7. I would have loved to have seen them back then. Never got the chance. Apparently they still perform fairly regularly (at festivals, at least) but never anywhere near where I live. Not sure what's gong on with them. Stand Up and Fight had its moments, but wasn't really up to par with their first two albums. I have no idea what they were thinking with their last album. Seems like they've had some lineup issues as well since Netta Skog left. I don't think they've secured a permanent accordion player and from what I've seen, Olli Vanska doesn't play live very much anymore(?) Anyway, typing that out reminded me of this:
  8. Sargeist - Let The Devil In
  9. I've been listening to a lot of early Paradise Lost and early Katatonia lately. Specifically Gothic, Icon, Dance of December Souls (OF COURSE), and Brave Murder Day, and some of Katatonia's early b-sides. Something I discovered today which I never knew is that a demo of 12 exists. I've known for years the "real title" of that song was Black Erotica, but this is the first time I've heard the demo. Wow, what can I say, except why on earth did they get rid of that clean intro and the keyboard?? Like everything this band did during that era...beautiful. Love it. I do believe I prefer it over the studio version.
  10. I agree, their early material is still excellent. I love their first three albums, very avant-garde and experimental but I love the juxtaposition of melodic/acoustic/instrumental with more harsh death metal passages and so forth. I think Ghost Reveries and Watershed is where they really started to sound way too much like a progressive rock band, but it was Heritage that was the final straw for me. I was just bored throughout that entire album. Their work since then has felt much the same way.
  11. For me it was probably Satyricon. Their first three albums are black metal classics, then Satyr just seemed to become more and more interested in sounding like some sort of arena rock...don't get me wrong, even their self-titled release has its moments, but it's just not the same. I'll go back and listen to "Forhekset" or whatever and then wonder why I even bother trying to listen to their more recent material. (Honorable mention for Anathema. I don't think they were exactly fantastic to begin with, but damn they had a really unique sound on Serenades and their first few EPs. Then they steadily lost their minds, it seems.) Actually, I believe this is a curse most bands suffer from at some point, oftentimes permanently. I guess they get bored and sort of jump off the deep end experminetally and never return. No one's asking for the same exact album over and over again, but when your fans can't even recognize your new music as yours...there's definitely a problem. Ugh yes - two of my most favorite bands of all time but I really cannot stomach Opeth's psychadelic/progressive rock-inspired Porcupine Tree worship, nor Katatonia's electronica BS much these days. I'm still a huge fan of their 90s output but I can't bring myself to listen to their more recent stuff. It's pretty disheartening when you have to try to force yourself to like their new albums...
  12. Oh, my favorite is the toilet paper hoarding. It's such an absurd thing to hoard. I can understand buying like an extra 8-pack or something but I see pictures online and on the news of people with like five 24-packs in their cart. Even with a family of four that's going to take them like...an entire year to get through lol. Not to mention it's extremely selfish. Other people have to poop too, you know. At least we know now that in the event of a real apocalypse, there should be plenty of medicine and self-defense items available since everyone else is more concerned about wiping their ass! 🤣
  13. Thanks. I went out today to get some food and it's like a ghost town here. I live in a city of about 200,000 and at 5pm I saw maybe three other cars on the highway. It's crazy...most places are closed here too, just a few fast food places and only their drive thru is open. I was lucky enough to get pizza but they were only allowing takeout. It really is starting to feel kind of apocalyptic. The shows I had planned to attend were all officially canceled today. I was expecting it but it's still really disappointing. I've been amusing myself searching "coronavirus metal" on youtube. I have nothing better to do. 😂
