  1. I can drink on it but need to go and get my car from the airport when we get off the ferry! So we fly to Dublin with Ryanair for about the cost of 2 pieces of straw and some pebbles but coming back out of Belfast, Easyjet wanted like £250 because we have luggage. Screw that.
  2. Deftones ‘White Pony’ - still find this enjoyable after all this time and also not withstanding the fact that I can’t stand most Nu-Metal. There’s much more here than just Nu-metal angst though. The melodies balanced with the downtuned riffs, the hazy/gazy vocals and the atmospheres of Delgado giving some real texture to things. Immolation ‘Close to a World Below’ - fast becoming my preferred Immolation release, it is just stacked with riffs man! That shifting, morphing and yet all the while murky/muddy sound is really well delivered. Flowers for Bodysnatchers ‘Babi Yar’ - a bit of noise/dark ambient to this week to soothe my soul after a busy assed week trying to get work wrapped up for annual leave. Any record that makes wildlife sound menacing deserves a slot in my top 3.
  3. Recent purchase? An 8 hour ferry trip back from Northern Ireland next week because airlines want virtually a week’s rent for a 30 min flight. Also got my 9 hour Game of Thrones coach tour in Northern Ireland where I intend to annoy all other passengers by professing to have never seen the programme and that I am just there “for the sites of Northern Ireland”!
  4. Ha, everytime girl, everytime.

  10. Welcome, I am currently revisiting 'White Pony' after 'Korea' popped up on a shuffle playlist earlier this week. Tried to get to grips with The Prodigy's last effort but it feels to commercial for me, not terrible just a bit too polished.
  11. 'White Pony' is about as close to nu-metal as you can get in terms of attitude yet also so very far away in terms of the blending of other musical influences (especially considering the amount of white stuff going up their noses at the time of writing/recording). Delgado drives so much of that record yet Carpenter also chops the fuck out tracks like 'Korea' and drives the metal part of the sound so well. I actually lose myself in 'White Pony' most of the time, considering it is by a band whose core genre is not one I get on with too well this is no mean feat.
  12. I'm not a bass player or a vocalist but still have a massive intro.
  13. First of all @FatherAlabaster, brilliant thread. Challenging one this and will require some more thought, but to pick up on the example of 'Pleiades' Dust' if I can, this is nothing short of one of the best compositions that Lemay has ever put his name too. To write something as arcane as that and somehow retain any sense of narrative is extraordinary. I mean literally every part of the Gorgut's engine is working in unison on that EP. Hamelin's understated drums, Marston's ever-present yet never smothering bass and Hufnagel's textural perfection alongside Lemay's visionary riffage all fits together so well you'll want to hug yourself on behalf of the band. Some cunt on another forum once said in response to 'Pleiades' Dust' that "life is too short for Gorguts". What a bell end!

  16. This was why I moved to Trello for this recommendation listing. Trello is my life at present.

  19. The misery of the packing of boxes and my life being work all day then pack boxes every night and all through the bank holiday weekend has made Macca a dull boy! Playing lots of Iron Maiden this weekend to help my mind with memories of more positive times discovering one of my favourite bands some 27 years ago. Also helping me with doing some reviews for an Internet acquaintance’s new site which is also helping fill my head with space dedicated to things less stressful.
  20. Iron Maiden ‘Piece Of Mind’ Darkthrone ‘The Hardship Of the Scots’
