    I agree with this. The orchestral stuff was pretty good. Standard fare I'd say. The choral pieces I didn't care for.
    Sodom - Obsessed By Cruelty
    Sacrilege - Behind the Realms of Death

    Witch Vomit - Abhorrent Rapture
    This new EP absolutely crushes. I'm confident in declaring this the best Witch Vomit material yet.

    Yep, Verklärte Nachte is a lovely piece.  Schönbergs orchestral music is not scary at all.  The choral music will not appeal to everyone.  I like opera though - my wife and I will be seeing Gounoud's  Faust at the movies on Sunday...
    This morning  - HORRISONOUS - A Culinary Cacophony, then CREUSCULE - Le Gardien Des Clefs

    I've got Pierre Boulez conductor who seems well regarded. Verklarte Nacht is the most peformed-it's very nice. It's a stringed orchestra or quartet depending. That seems to be the usual place to start. Five Pieces for Orchestra next and far some avant garde operatic fare, Pierrot Lunaire. I like some of his choral stuff, but I may be in the minority in terms of enjoying choral operatic.

    Up early working on report cards. IK this isn't metal, but will try to give it a metal twist. I made through an 11 box set of Schoenberg. I had put this composer off hearing how dissonant, modernist and generally challenging his music was and honestly I really enjoyed his work. He has a ton of choral music which is quite good. I don't really understand conceptually beyond the mere basics his so called twelve tone method but it's not really all that weird. Most of it is melodic to me and he's one of the main guys to try to push music into new boundaries beyond the traditional tonal music.
    Here's my take-if you you've spent any time listening to dissonant music-in my case dissonant metal and avant garde free jazz and the like, Schoenberg is quite worth the time! I guess I have to thank DSO, Ulcerate, SunnO))) (love that Scott Walker collaboration) and my love of a lot of weird-ass metal for opening me up to a variety of non metal sounds.

    I will give you guys horns even though I don't do Rush. Had hernia repair surgery yesterday, amongst many other big life things, like quitting one of my jobs, some other stuff culminating. You know the drill. But have missed the forum (old and new) and only keeping up on the periphery. Bout to pop another perco and browse some new releases though so it's all good! To my fellow goats send me you best if I am missing new releases. I have a few ill post eventually. Also been a good year for thrash so far, for those who enjoy. Cheers all, good to see you here Dead!

    I like Alfa Mist - I put his albums Antiphon and Structuralism on sometimes when I don't want to bombard my son with Sheer Brutal Filth. Nothing mind-blowing, just relaxing rainy-day music. Rocco and the guitarist are both pretty fantastic players. My drummer turned me on to Yussef a couple years ago. His attitude when he's playing is totally infectious, it's captivating to me. He just looks like he's having the time of his life.
    Warm, slightly salty, flaky but with a certain tenderness?

    Agreed. I just recently discovered Yussef (from this video no less). He's phenomenal. Can't believe I'd never run across him before. I'm not familiar with Alfa Mist other than his contribution here. Rocco Palladino is a monster on bass. Not much of a smooth jazz guy, but this song and the rest of what I've heard from Yussef is great for late night chilling with the wife.

    And shameless self promotion, but what the hell.  I will have a listen after work.

    Saw that too.  It has taken me a few attempts to get friendly with this one in all honesty.  I find some of the riffing to be a bit half-arsed on some tracks, but post Unholy Cult output it is one their stronger releases.  Never gonna be another Close to a World Below mind you (which is my favourite of theirs) but sets a good tone for the next record.

    Alfa Mist seems a little out of his depth compared to everyone else's chops in the video they did, but I love the vibe. Yussef is awesome. Watched that one a ton with my son a while back.

    One of my favorites from them. I saw a post from them on the socials that they are tracking a new album, Hopefully we will see it this year or early next.
    Today, I'm feeling a little chill
    NP: Eric Dolphy - Out To Lunch
    Miles Davis - Live Evil
    Yussef Dayes - Love is the Message (Live at Abbey Road)

    Absolutely as good as you could imagine. Unfortunately, the only tour shirt I bought out of the 5 times I saw them was for the Snakes & Arrows tour in 2008. I will probably go back and fill in the gaps in the future, but Presto was a special show being my first.

    Regular Maker's wouldn't make the top 10, but that doesn't make it bad by any means.. Four Roses closer to 4 or 5 depending on the specific version. The single barrel is phenomenal for the usual price. Number 1 at the moment is Eagle Rare, but it is hard to find lately. Redemption High Rye is a very close second. 3 would be Knob Creek Single Barrel Select.
    Rest of the top 10 from my current stock in no particular order:
    Maker's Mark cask strength
    Woodford Reserve Double Oaked
    Woodinville
    Elijah Craig Single Barrel
    Basil Hayden
    Jim Beam Black - essential for my favorite whiskey ginger and the wife's Old Fashions.
    What makes each one special? Dunno. Just like the best cheeseburger, you just know one is better than the others. And it depends a lot on what else you have been exposed to. I like each one for different reasons. Taste, mood, finish, ability to obtain, and how I plan to drink them all play a part. There are certainly better bourbons out there (Stagg Jr, Pappy Van Winkle, etc), but price and availability make them less desirable for me.
    Regular Wild Turkey is ok, but I prefer others for an everyday drink. I've never had any of their special releases.
    Everyday - mixed drinks it's Beam Black. Neat it's Redemption at the moment.

    navybsn gave a Damn to Sheol in In your opinion, who's the best guitar player in extreme metal?   
    Mmm, Ihsahn is a good pick, if I had just composed "In the nightside eclipse" I would've considered I'd peaked.
