  1. Omnium Gatherum - King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard
  2. I think it's the best of the three albums they released last month and the weird thing is that I find the shortest song Lava (6:40) is the one that drags on the most. I don't think that makes sense but it's the truth. However when it comes to my favourite release from this year it's actually Omnium Gatherum which was released earlier this year. You're not wrong about increasing their output. They've been around something like 12 years and got 20 studio releases but including live releases that is somewhere up in the mid 30's, They've released 8 albums this year from memory.
  3. That's a coincidence because metal has nothing to do with how they judge bands either.
  4. Pretty sure I remember seeing the thread on there where BC was blacklisted for not being metal enough, by whatever sliding scale they claim is accurate enough to measure 'metal'.
  5. King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard - Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava
  6. If I were a betting man I'd put my money on the idea that Scott and Charlie are scraping the barrel and struggling to live up to the hype they gave the new songs. So projects like Pantera, like all the shitty bands Scott has, Joey's Journey band, Jon's Shadow Fall and Living Wreckage projects and Frank's solo stuff have just become convenient excuses to push the new album out and hope that fans actually get desperate enough for a new album that they'll be thankful for anything. But one look at most forums, fan sites etc shows that that isn't working fans are turning against them in droves, and they didn't have that many in the first place.
  7. Effigy Of Madness - As The Page Burns
  8. Yeah but think of all the shows you'll be able to see by staying in Canberra
  9. There will be plenty of people who will be glad if Metallica do stop making records.
  10. They don't all wear red high heels NP: Lowest Creature : Sacrilegious Pain
  11. Last album? Where did you hear that? Despite it taking 153 years for Metallica to record something, just slightly shy of Anthrax's 196 years, I haven't heard or read anything about this being the last album. Lars himself says he'd like to keep the band going into his 70's. 72 Seasons = 18 years, supposedly the time we are influenced by our parents and formed in their shadow (as per the gospel similar according to James).
  12. I like the confidence Tom shows in the recording industry. Apparently he told BMG he didn't want Cold Lake appearing in the reissues because it added nothing to the CF catalogue and they agreed. But he's got no doubt after he dies some record company is going to ignore such a request and there will be Cold Lake reissues available in short time to milk a few pennies from it.
  13. Don't mention Lars and blow in the same sentence, Scott Ian will get excited and see a new position for himself.
  14. There is quite a few nods to the past in the song, not sure if that's enough to make it great though. It will be interesting to see what the rest of the album sounds like and if it's more of this or more of their more recent stuff. I wonder how Lars is going to go into the future. He not long ago said he could see himself playing live up into his seventies (twenty years into the future at the time), but this sort of song does crack a bit of pace for the guy. Will he be able to cope or will they slow this song down live like they have over the years with so many of their classics.
  15. The Accused - Grinning Like An Undertaker
  16. I don't hate that. Probably a bit heavier and faster than I thought new Metallica would be. I don't know that it will have me jumping back on the Metalli-bandwagon, but it's not the worst thing they've released.
  17. Alestorm - Seventh Rum of A Seventh Rum
  18. I ordered a new sim card from my telco last Monday, after 40 odd minutes on the phone and about 5 disconnections they eventually got everything sorted and promised me the sim card would be in the mail once the first month's bill was received from the CC. The money was out within 3 hours, the emails confirming the new card, the new account and the set up details were emailed to me with "the card is in the mail' on each email. A week on and today I get an email telling me my order was accepted and I'd be notified when the new sim card is leaving the warehouse. I know we have to pass stupid numbers of checks for new phone services in this country but if the sim card was 'in the mail' last week, obviously they sent it to themselves so the warehouse could re-send it to me when they felt like. I should be able to do the same with the bill, "yeah it's in the mail, but you'll have to wait until I accept that it's my bill!"
  19. What? February? Decibel Mag has already completed their 2023 list by then. NP: Skyclad - The Wayward Sons Of Mother Earth
  20. Having recently watched the final episode of Mock The Week I decided to go back to the start. The news is old but in Oz we missed quite a lot of the episodes so many of them are new to me
  21. Imagine thinking I was even trying to offer qualitative data.
