  1. Hail to the metal pubs and clubs that helped us all enjoy our music outside of our homes. Remember them for what they gave us not what they became. Friday night rock night at Maxime's in the town I grew up nearby was a most worthy way to spend a Friday night as a lad.
  2. It's coming back everywhere, they have had to shut (some) pubs here in England within 4 days of them opening again. The old life we all knew might just be gone for a while yet. The economy is screwed though, my fiancee took redundancy last week. To end on a positive note I had a good week at work and mowed my lawns earlier to celebrate.
  3. Alice In Chains - Rainier Fog Soundgarden - Superunknown
  4. Cough/Windhand -Reflection of the Negative
  5. Bell Witch & Aerial Ruin - Stygian Bough Volume I I like Bell Witch a lot but this feels a bit of a let down as I listen. There's no sense of forboding anywhere and too much in the way of clean lyrics for my liking making it sound like Funeral Doom meets Fleet Foxes. I never get bored of Bell Witch records but this is losing me pretty quickly.
  6. Probably for the best like you say. This will all blow over eventually and you can enjoy a hopefully less stressful visit in the future.

    Books?

    Alongside the never ending A People’s Tragedy by Orlando Figes I also now have The Complete Tales & Poems of Edgar Allan Poe on my bedside table. Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”
  9. Vanum - Ageless Fire Edge of Sanity - Crimson II
  10. The Angelic Process - Weighing Souls With Sand
  11. Faith No More - The Real Thing
  12. Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal - (2005) Few bands get to go out on a high note and this is arguably their best release. Proud to finally have this on CD and be stripping the paint from the walls by blasting The Killchain like some fucking teenager. Resplendent death metal that is utterly relentless in it's drive and direction. Deftones - Adrenaline - (1995) Not their best album by a long chalk but there's a tautness to the sound on here that belies their more explosive outbursts some years later. A lot of immaturity is obvious here but also equal amounts of brooding talent just not yet able to be expressed enough by the skill set of the group. They kept this pent up emotion constant right up until Gore although arguably it was on the wane before then, but my point is that I can track what I get on their debut and hear it through most of their recorded output over the next 20 years. Warlock - Triumph and Agony - (1987) Despite the excessive marketing of Doro as a sex symbol in the 80's (and let's be honest, who wouldn't ? - Sue me.) it was obvious she was a powerful vocalist not afraid to trade blows with the best of metal front men and women out there and Warlock's 1987 album shows this. Trademark cheesy lyrics aside this was a band full of talent being led by a determined sounding young lady who could deliver. Songwriting isn't brilliant but 10 out of 10 for effort Warlock.
  13. Warlock - Triumph and Agony Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal Bolt Thrower - ...For Victory
  14. Katatonia - Dance of December Souls Deftones - Adrenaline
  15. Thanks, I have a 4 pack of it with a branded glass so happy with that haul. Longer term drink is my bottle of Highland Park Odin Single Malt in ornate Viking longboat style stand.
  16. Chouffe Soliel - having a couple of beers today as it is my birthday (I am 1094). My recent healthy regime has made my system less tolerant to booze so taking it easy with more 0% brew dog offerings in the main.
  17. Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal
  18. I only recently got around to listening to CA so am still working my way through their discography so far. Their drama put me off if honest at first, which is sort of what happened with Cradle of Filth over many years but then I instantly warmed to them also this year when I sat down and listened to one of their albums.
  19. I only have heard Focus and Kindly Bent To Free Us. I think the latter is a solid modern prog rock/metal album and I prefer it to Focus by a long chalk. Kindly Bent To Free Us is great background music which might seem an insult but isn’t meant to be. It fills my head regardless of what I am doing without being intrusive.
