    This truly is a great album. Unfortunately, it's the only Cro-Mags album that I have at the moment because it's the only one that I could find. That one track "Two Hours" is pretty relevant to my life, because I always have to stop myself and think "Where do I want to be in two hours? Not sitting in a cell wondering why did I put myself here?"

    I listen to a lot of hardcore in addition to metal. This one is one of my favorites out of all the hardcore albums that I own.

    We've been playing mostly card games here, but (as a sort of combination card/board game) my son made me a version of Sorry (for Father's Day of course) called "Sorry Dad". Played on a Sorry board but with a new deck of cards that have different moves. It's actually different and fun. I guess this pays me back for the time I made him an entire Scrabble set out of card stock when ours was in storage.

    This one's much better, or at least it's a much easier listen for me because it's not what I would call excessively chaotic and it doesn't use dissonance as a weapon to make me feel like I'm on some kind of bad drugs and up is down and my world is spinning out of control. Best tracks here were the penultimate track, Gegen Das Licht and the closer Haven. I do like an album that finishes strong.
    Now of course I'm sure you already know before I even say it that I'm slightly irritataed that they call this "black metal" because it's nothing of the sort. I'm sorry Doc, but this and black metal have nothing in common. Why do bands do that? Just call it avant-garde post metal and leave the black out of it. To me this actually sounds much more like what Mark (not you Doc, the other Mark) and Johan and those dudes call post metal/post hardcore.
    But setting that one small but very important nit pick aside, musically I'll say this is pretty good Doc. I actually like the pretty parts the best but even during the more metallic parts it's alright because I can at least follow along with it, doesn't make me feel like I'm crazy or stupid or anything because I can't decipher it like those DSO bands generally do. But it's not something I'd buy you see because it doesn't sound "evil" or "filthy". Extreme metal needs to be one or the other or both ideally for me to consider it. And it's also not "riffy" which is another big negative in my book.
    This is largely clean not filthy, and it's almost uplifting in spots, not angry and hateful. The dude does sound a lil' bit annoyed at times but he's not conveying true bone chilling, church burning hatefulness and evil the way I feel black metal vocalists should. He sounds more like he's pissed off they got his burger order wrong or a bird shit on his windshield on the way to work or something. So you see in that way it's not cathartic for me the way black metal is, which is something I really need Doc. Because black metal exorcises my inner demons allowing me to walk around with a smile on my face and to be the care-free happy-go-lucky guy that we all know and love.
     
    I did give it a shot oh patriarch of the white rock. Didn't make it all the way to the bitter end but I listened to about 3/4 of it before I gave up. I see it's our buddies the ED twins again. This must be a side project or something of theirs I guess. 
    It was definitely somewhat easier to make sense of this album than the Hornywood album, in track 5 for a minute or two I was almost starting to sense a pattern that I could latch onto. But I can't say I found anything "fun" about this album.
    Now this dude did sound legitimately angry, but I'm talking like unhinged mental institution angry, not regular sane person angry. And once again the levels of choas and dissonance on display here are simply beyond what my pea brain can comprehend or tolerate. Smarter men (and women of course) than I may be able to get something out of this kind of music and more power to them, it takes all kinds. But I just find it unsettling (not in a good way) like deep inside my guts, like it makes me feel like I have to take a shit or deliver a baby or something.
    "Avant-garde" stuff like this is really closer to what I'd call noise than music. I don't say that to be confrontational or insulting or argumentative or anything, that's just my take, albeit a dismissive one. Personally I need my music to be in tune using standard time signatures (I've found 4/4 works quite well) and use regular notes and chords n shit that go together. Mismatched notes confuse me. Dissonant or atonal chaos (Doc has explained it to me but I can never remember the difference tbh) just doesn't appeal to me, it has the polar opposite effect.

    Haha I call Tool nu-metal and several of my friends who are pretty heavily into them get all bent out of shape over that. They don't want their beloved Maynard and Tool assosciated with an inferior sub-genre that they despise. But I just call 'em like I see 'em. Sounds like whiny nu-metal to me, just more "posty." They're the band that writes songs that build and build creating tension but never reaching a climax. I should coin a new sub-genre just for them, "blue balls rock"

    Consider yourself lucky to have an OG older version. I promise you, the new(er) edition isn't nearly as good. There aren't nearly as many characters to choose from and it doesn't have anywhere near as many adventure cards or spell cards, so the gameplay gets far more repetitive than how I remember the older version.

    The rules are a little bit demanding but once you get it's not an issue.  
    There might be clubs in your local area you can plug into.  
     
    Do you have any specific areas you're struggling with? 
     
    My brother has the new set with all the minis and all the expansions.  Shame about the shakes - I find painting minis to be relaxing (gluing metal ones though drives me nuts).
    I used to have a Tau force for 40K.  I sold them and all my other 40K stuff many years ago as I prefer history.
    Shame you can't get anyone to play.  There might be clubs in your local area.  GW stores are a bit awkward as they are often all young uns.
     
    I'm lucky average age at my gaming club is 30+.

    Varathron "Walpurgisnacht"

    I like the Greek black metal sound. Granted this album has received criticism from people because it "is the best Rotting Christ album that Rotting Christ never made", but that sort of thing does not bother me. I'm a big fan of Rotting Christ, so when I read that in a review, I knew that I had to check Varathron out & this is my first outing with the band, for I have not listened to "His Majesty at the Swamp" but again, I hear good things.

    Played Talisman a lot.  Only problem is it goes on forever!  I've painted a ton of the figures too but then repurposed for Dungeons and Dragons.
    I love really indepth ones like Talisman but also Arkham Horror, House on Haunted Hill, Zombicide, Battlestar Galactica etc.  
    We play quite a lot of board and card games but wife is getting out of them so now it's simpler games like Coup, Llamas Unleashed (version of Unstable Unicorns), Throw Throw Burrito, Skulls etc.
     
    I'm also an avid miniature wargamer - WWII but also Viking era and American Civil War.
     
    Yep I am a total nerd.
     
     
     
     
    That sounds like my kind of fun.
     
    My brother ran a one session zombie apocalypse RPG using nothing but a jenga tower.  Each time a player made a choice, you pull a jenga block.  If the tower falls down, it has bad ramifications.  Being a bit drunk I collapsed the tower early on and got bitten!   Epic stuff. 
     
    I am currently involved in a couple of Dungeons and Dragons campaigns (one as Dungeon Master)  and have also done Warhammer 40000 and Star War RPGs.

    I am really into this RPG game called Dead of Winter. You are basically trying to survive a zombie apocalypse in the dead of winter lol. You have to go out of your compound and try to get supplies and avoid being wounded by zombies . Thing is there might be a traitor in the group or maybe not. It's pretty fun!

    I played that game a couple of games.  A lot of fun!  We used to call it Japanese Pervert Game cause we'd make up all these stories as to what was really happening at each locale (and suffice to say it was more of the kind of thing that happens in shady parts of Bangkok)!

    Really? I don't think they ever used any of his work. Celtic Frost's "To Mega Therion", the Triptykon albums, and Danzig's "How The Gods Kill" are the first ones that come to mind for me.

    I only drink once per week so it's not issue. I pace myself more and I've even set myself a max limit of drinks per night as I'm fed up with hangovers the next day, it's not like I was  drinking everyday before but I did occasionally overdo it. I still use the perfume a bit when drinking some stuff like wild turkey 101 as even when I have one shot all night I get so much negative comments and moaning from the Mrs. It does not help that the Mrs family are really low drinkers. Some of them either don't drink period or one bottle of beer per night is plenty. Theyve never made me tip my stuff down the drain or neither has my wife so that's good.thanks though for your message. My cousin drank himself to death at 46. That was sad and it's easy to do if you don't see alcohol for what it is. It's POISON in nice fancy bottles in my mind. Don't smoke anymore and never did drugs but giving up alcohol. Nah not yet😁

    Could be, in that specific situation then yeah you probably do have a problem. I had a problem with alcohol and used to hide my drinking because any time I tried to have a drink, I caught shit for it so then naturally I started hiding it and it turned into a problem.

    What I'm talking about though, are partners who flip out over someone having one or two beers. I know a lady who got involved with some weird church and then she made her husband pour his beer down the toilet. That kind of behavior & sentiment toward alcohol is what I find to be kind of weird & puritanical.

    But I live in America so there are a lot of puritanical people around here to be quite honest. Not as many as there used to be when I was growing up, but there are still people around who are weird in that way although if you ever had an alcohol problem and had to go to AA to deal with it, I kind of understand it to an extent because having a problem with any substance is no fun.
