  1. What's on your mind?

    Well my writing course has officially finished. There are a great many areas of improvement to be made on my first story. Right now I'll leave it alone and begin working on something else. I'll come back to that one in a month or so and approach it fresh.
  2. What's on your mind?

    Yeah, and I was told there's nothing they can really do as I didn't get a look at the person. I suppose it could have been worse so there's that. Indeed, to quote the great man Bill Lawry 'It's all happening here at the MetalForum'
  3. What's on your mind?

    Yep inspecting the gate this morning there was a bit of damage. So looks like last night I narrowly avoided having my house broken into. That's a bit frightening to be honest.
  4. What's on your mind?

    That's fantastic Parker. I wish you all the best. So then an update. More rattling of the gate, this time I heard someone breathing heavily to boot. I flicked the light on out there and heard someone running away. I imagine I'll call the cops in the morning.
  5. What's on your mind?

    Seems typical of you Brits. I'm lead to believe you label it a 'heat wave' if the temperature ever hits 25c... Also hearing some suspicious sounds. Rattling of the back gate (which is chained and padlocked shut). Neither of my brothers are in the state right now. They have keys for the front door anyway. Bottom line I have the police number already keyed into my phone ready to go. Hopefully I don't need to actually make that call.
  6. What makes a genre?

    I think what defines a genre is the common musical techniques and direction of bands crafting that sound. For example you can hear the elements tying Mayhem, Darkthrone, Burzum, Necromantia, and Rotting Christ together as black metal. As for new genres emerging I'm not sure. I think these days bands are content to simply blur the genre lines. For example Grave Miasma contain elements of death metal, avant-garde, and even a little jazz at times.
  7. Who Are “The Big 4” of Thrash?

    It's a well trodden path by now but the 'big 4' are Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica, and Slayer. Thrash fans also regard Destruction, Kreator, Sodom, and Tankard as the 'teutonic big 4'. If I were to rank them Slayer would be the best as SNM, HtC, and HA are impeccable. Megadeth second best as KIMB and RIP are phenomenal. Metallica sit third by a hair for those first two albums. As for the 'teutonic big 4' Destruction sit first for their conosistency. Sodom second also for consistency. Kreator third because PtK is incredible but there's not enough outside of that to knock off either of their peers.
  8. What Are You Listening To?

    I do enjoy the times these moods hit, having a decent collection it can be hard to narrow things down on a regular day.
  9. What's on your mind?

    It's worth a shot, though Adelaide being the serial killer capital of the world and the number of horror stories one hears about craigslist...
  10. What's on your mind?

    FUCK!!! Guess I won't be catching Mayhem after all. Jan. 17th is the show and it's sold out as best I can tell. So is Overkill, in my town, mid Feb. I REALLY need to get clued in to this shit so as to not miss any future gigs.
  11. What Are You Listening To?

    Iron Maiden - Killers The mood for some heavy metal just hit me out of nowhere.
  12. Hello from Phoenix!

    Shit am I late to the party again? Welcome to MetalForum. We're just one big dysfunctional family... Heavy riffs and melodic vocals? Sounds like early Candlemass would be right up your alley.
  13. What's on your mind?

    It's gonna be fucking awesome. With any luck I may meet up with some of MF's Aussie contingent as well. In other news I blasted through 'The Krusher' by Asphyx in just two weeks. Now learning 'The Toxic Waltz' by Exodus to wrap up 2017.
  14. What's on your mind?

    So I just learned next year Mayhem are in Australia and playing DMDS in full. Guess what that means? I'm off to Melbourne for that shit.
  15. What's on your mind?

    I sincerely hope things get easier for both of you. Meanwhile in the world of RelentlessOblivion...I got that editing done. The story itself isn't great as I said but once I get it back and make the necessary improvements perhaps I'll post it in the writing thread. Last night I also accomplished something else I'd rather keep private.
