  1. Beherit -Drawing Down the Moon
  2. So, I was reading about different kinds of German beer in preparation for my trip to Berlin. I learned about a kind of beer called rauchbier, that is, smokebeer. The malt is dried over an open flame, which gives the beer a smokey flavor. This sounded intriguing. I found that my local liquor store sold Schlenkerla Rauchbier, so I bought a bottle. OH MY GOD! It was horribly disgusting! Vomit tastes better. Imagine trying to drink liquefied smoked ham dosed in rubbing alcohol. Just irredeemably disgusting. Fortunately, I had bought another German beer, Flensburger Dunkel, and it was quite enjoyable (especially in contrast with what came before).
  3. Paradise Lost - Draconian Times Someone recently posted about how great this album is. I hadn't heard it in maybe over a decade or more, so I'm giving it a spin. Is it a great album? No, IMO. But, it is a good, solid, entertaining album and I'm glad I dicided to listen to it again. Highlights are The Last Time and Forever Failure.

    Don't know how I never noticed this thread before. I smoke on a regular basis and am stoned now. It's legal here. I haven't bought any at the store yet as the the price is double what I can get otherwise. I much prefer weed to alcohol. In my experience drinking too much will fuck up your life and your health way faster than weed. With alcohol, I find that to drink enough to feel the effect is too close to the point of loosing control, whereas with weed, you feel it fairly quickly but smoking enough to feel out of control would take a hell of a lot of weed. Don't know if I said that right, hopefully you get what I mean. Anyway, I usually just smoke weed, but in Amsterdam I loved smoking hash. Have only found hash once in the U.S. As for "dabs", I haven't tried it, but if I ever have enough $ I'll get it at the store. I love the way weed enhances my emotional connection to whatever music I'm listening to.

  6. Thank you for the congratulations! We're definitely going to Check point Charlie, going to see what's left of the wall, and Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church (I think it was bombed during WWII). Really looking forward to it. What German beers do you recommend? I pretty much live to travel, few things are as fun as going to a country I haven't been to before. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend it. Congratulations on your show going well. Did you say the show is in Worcester? I live about 20 minutes from Worcester, where is the show?
  7. Solstice was definitely the best of the three, excellent and totally crushing. Hellwitch was very good, not as heavy, but they do a lot of weird/interesting stuff. Skeletonwitch was really good, but I would say the weakest of the three. Can you recommend more bands like Solstice?

  9. 125 days until my wedding. We just bought tickets to Berlin for our honeymoon. Will also spend a day in Copenhagen and a day in Poznan. Having lots of fun listening to metal and making plans of what to do in Berlin. Has anyone been there?

    Regarding the track listing/concept of GDoW, it's a three part concept album, with part one being Wolf's Lair Abyss. The first part represents the past, the second part (first half of GDoW) represents the present, and the last part (second half of GDoW) represents the future. Sit down and listen to all three parts and read the lyrics, it's very interesting if cryptic. I haven't heard this new mix, but from what you say, it sounds god-awful, and 100% unasked for, and 100% unwanted. My question is, does it include the hidden negative time song at beginning of the album ? I don't know if everyone is aware of this, but, on the original release, if you put the CD in your player, hit play, and held down reverse, there was a song before track one. It is the same as the hidden track at the end, but played in reverse. I just read this whole thread for the first time, and I have to address something that came up earlier: Snorre of thorns. First, I had always heard that he actually played on the DMDS album, not just wrote for it. Second, (and this is just my opinion) the Thorns "Grymmyrk" demo, which you guys just shrug off, is one of my favorite recordings of anything ever. If I could only listen to one song for the rest of my life, it would be "Home" on Grymyrk. Because there are no vocals or drums, people will tell you that Grymyrk is just a bunch of riffs thrown together, and that is simply not true. The riffs are arranged and structured as songs, it should only take one listen for this to be apparent. The no vocals or drums thing just serves to make the demo more psychedelic/trippy/disorienting. What I love about Snorre is his bizarre riffing style. Almost no one sounds like him. Vikernes and Arseth both have some similarity to Snorre's style, but other than that, I don't think any other guitarists come even close to Snorre's style. The full length is excellent, just not quite as good as Grymyrk. It was said that this album sounds just like Satyricon's Rebel Extravaganza. I haven't heard RE, and while I assume it may have a similar sound, I find it extremely hard to believe that it has the bizarre psychedelic riffs that Snorre is known for, considering nothing else I've heard by (the mediocre) Satyricon has had riffs that are remotely like Snorre's. In conclusion, I LOVE Snorre/Thorns, and don't think anyone else plays his style. IMHO, the three best living guitarist are Snorre, Vikernes, and David Gilmour.
  13. Speaking about medications, it reminds me of my favorite Beavis & Butthead quote. Beavis was watching a commercial for diarrhea medicine and said, "Those diarrhea medicines just don't work. I took some for a whole week one time and I didn't get diarrhea once! . . . about a month later I popped a brick though . . . I still have it in my sock drawer if you wanna see."
  14. Congratulations, MacabreEternal. I'm surprised to hear about Deathstorm, never saw him post anything inappropriate. Most of his posts were just: Today was a good day, looking forward to a wrestling show.
