  1. Motörhead - Another Perfect Day Sacred Reich - Independent
  2. Bathory - Blood Fire Death - I had forgotten how perfect this album is.
  3. Turns out the Dalai Lama is totally krieg. No doubt he's cranking some sort of rabid warmetal you usually associate with the Goatmaster General.
  4. Death Hammer - Chained To Hell - Hey that's exactly how I feel about work! Full on intense blackened thrash - fucking metal just the way Buddha intended it . Cemetery Urn - Barbaric Retribution - Aussie death metal. Quite raw but there's some really nice riffage!
  5. Damn that is a delicious little morsel. Wolfbrigade - The Enemy: Reality
  6. Nominally working...or driving a car or doing housework...yes I am boring!
  7. Dead1


    I have Pantera's CFH logo on my right ankle!
  8. Well this should be an interesting read - Life? … & Napalm Death, a biography of Shane Embury's life. https://www.decibelmagazine.com/2021/10/12/shane-embury-napalm-death-lock-up-dark-sky-burial-biography-due-in-2022/ Given Mr Embury's involvement in extreme music this should be quite insightful. And for those don't know Shane's work, it includes Napalm Death, Lock Up, Brujeria, Venomous Concept and a few others. He is basically a grindcore/extreme metal institution.
  9. Riot - Fire Down Under Venomous Concept - Politics versus the Erection Megadeth - Countdown To Extinction
  10. Faith No More - Angel Dust Lamb of God - As The Palaces Burn Napalm Death - Harmony Corruption Napalm Death - Scum
  11. I can relate. My parents weren't military but rather those "grass is always greener somewhere else" types (hint: it never was). By the time I was 12, I'd moved continents 3 times and went to 7 different primary (elementary schools). So I hate moving with a passion. I only just recently moved because my wife wanted to upsize the house we'd lived in for 11 years. I moved around a lot and I certainly envy the Aussie kids who grew up in one spot and were part of their community. But I grew up poor, my mum was both heavily ill and also physically and psychologically abusive. I initially lived in migrant suburbs where I was picked on the colour of my skin (suburb was mainly Indian, school was Pacific Islanders and I'm European so I was too white). There was lots of crime. And then I lived through a war because my parents decided to move back to Yugoslavia in 1989 (they ran to escape creditors because they'd borrowed money they couldn't afford to pay back spent like drunken sailors). ...And then back to Australia in 1991, more poverty and living in shitty crime ridden suburbs. At least the Tasmanian ones weren't so bad you required bars on your windows and there were discarded junkie syringes where we played like in Sydney Oh and being an immigrant kid sucks because you don't fit in with everyone else. In Sydney I was the white kid, in Tasmania the non-Anglo kid. To be fair the Anglo kids were accepting and I didn't experience that much overt racism unlike the Islander and Indian kids. But you still don't fit in cause all your cultural values are different. And the Anglo kids' parents work and have nice things, whereas my parents are welfare bludgers who would sooner spend money on cigarettes than clothes for their eldest son (I literally wore old man clothes from estate sales). Oh and as 41 year old man I still don't feel like I fit in anywhere. I'm still too Yugoslav for Australia and too Australian for Europe. I literally feel disjointed all the time. I literally feel like that fate went wrong when that Serb sniper missed me by inches - I should've been dead in 1991. Little wonder I seek to provide the most normal, middle class life for my daughter.
  12. They don't even wear suits anymore. The phrase "frumpy casual" comes to mind when you see how our senior managers dress. The corruption is endemic though it's legalised - eg provision of home garaged vehicles on basis of the "manager travels." The processes are unravelling - we can now spend $50,000 of taxpayer dollars with no proper process followed- no RFQ, no requirement for multiple quotes, no business cases nothing! There are no proper review processes for anything and it's become so politicised.
  13. So it's not just me! This is why more and more I show less initiative, less proactiveness and less commitment to work as time goes on. Literally the culture has devolved into doing the bare minimum and staying under the radar. Also nod your head and be a good yes person. We literally don't even have budgets anymore. Instead they have a rolling budget that they adjust as you spend money. And this isn't even based on your exact expenditure or forecast - it just goes up and down randomly, sometimes monthly, sometimes quarterly and then the big end of year adjustment where they make some services under budget, some on budget and some over budget all for no apparent reason. Mentally retarded meth addicted hobos would display more competence.
  14. 16 years in the health bureaucracy and it has finally happened - a meeting whose sole purpose turned out to be to recommend organising other meetings. Mind you when I started 16 years ago the managers were reasonably competent and we had rational objectives and processes. The current mob are worthless oxygen thieves, processes are non-existent and the objectives are whatever little pet bullshit the manager is into.
  15. I love Dee Schneider's vocals. Such as punchy sharp delivery. One of the best metal vocalists in my opinion. First three Twisted Sister albums are damn near perfect.
  16. Carcass - Torn Arteries - finally got the proper physical copy. I would agree with previous comments that the production is a bit too polished. As for song writing, it always takes a couple of listens before I can make an opinion.
  17. I always found Sabbat a tiring listen - they don't let the music "breathe" and it seems it is just Martin Valkyier spewing out a torrent of vocals without a pause. I did enjoy Skyclad - Prince of the Poverty Line is well and truly classic. Autopsy - Acts of the Unspeakable.
  18. Dismember - Death Metal - their last album I actually enjoyed
  19. Haven't heard it. The one British thrash band that blew my socks off with their comeback was Onslaught with Killing Peace. One of the best albums of the 21st century in my worthless opinion.
  20. The concept of a hooker who operates exclusively at funerals is hilarious. Nothing takes your mind off grief better than a blowjob! 🤣
  21. Xentrix Shattered - Existence - quite a good slab of thrash metal that probably marred by the fact it was one of a thousand other similar thrash acts around in 1989. Oh and British - for some reason British thrash never took off.
  22. With the family out on a little overnight trip, I was stuck at home with the new puppy. Anyway little pup and I spent Saturday listening to some metal tunes (well I did, she just chased and chewed things): Accept - Balls To The Wall Artillery - B.A.C.K. Bathory - Bathory Black Sabbath - Paranoid Cradle of Filth - Bitter Suites To Succubi Helloween - Time Of The Oath Metallica - ...And Justice For All Necrot - Mortal Pantera - Vulgar Display Of Power Strapping Young Lad - City
  23. The only freedom Australians ever had was to consume. You can't even put up a garden shed on a concrete slab here in Oz without getting government approval and paying a hefty little fee to do so.
