  1. Forhist - s/t @Balor, you heard any of this yet? New melodic BM from Vindsval of Blut Aus Nord.
  2. David Wayne's Reverend? I used to play them a bit, "World Won't Miss You" was a cool album.
  3. Ad Nauseam - Imperative Imperceptible Impulse Suffering Hour - The Cyclic Reckoning Rush - Hemispheres Rush - Permanent Waves Rush - Moving Pictures
  4. It's been around a long time. Go to "Activity" to see new posts first.
  5. Suffering Hour - The Cyclic Reckoning Return To Forever - Where Have I Known You Before
  6. Totally unimportant tidbits. Cannibal Corpse, Malevolent Creation, and Glen Benton of Deicide were all big contributors to the "Florida death metal sound" and they all relocated from the Buffalo, NY area before they broke out. Several of the big names from the 2nd wave BM scene in Norway started off playing death metal, but abandoned the style before ever doing much with it. More than anything it just makes me wonder how things might have gone differently.
  7. I really enjoyed the doom sections, felt like the BM parts made a nice contrast but maybe needed a bit more of... something? Anyway, it seemed cool. NP: Cradle Of Filth - Cruelty And The Beast
  8. MRSA - Misanthropic Retaliation Sacrilegious Ardor ...blackened death/doom (or death/doomened black metal? hmm) EP from 2019, maybe something for @Thrashman https://mrsadoomed.bandcamp.com/releases
  9. Ad Nauseam - Imperative Imperceptible Impulse
  10. Black tea, hot because I'm not a heathen, plain because I'm not a monster.
  11. Onirik - The Fire Cult Beyond Eternity ...weird, intricate progressive black metal from Portugal featuring drums by Dirge Rep (ex-Gehenna, ex-Enslaved) and atmospheric contributions from Semjaza (Thy Darkened Shade).
  12. The thing with photographing paintings is that it's really hard to get good lighting for focus and accurate color without also getting a bunch of glare. I have to shoot my paintings outside and it's almost never optimal. Tweaking the photo is about getting the photo to match the painting, rather than "fixing" something in the painting, which would probably be more difficult for me than just fixing it in the painting to begin with. I draw on my laptop with a stylus when I need to, but I kinda hate it. I'll definitely use color filters and do digital graphic design work on top of pictures of my
  13. Welcome to the forum, hope you enjoy the place.
  14. Do you get into Supervillain Outcast? I have to say it's become my favorite of theirs.
  15. It's amazing. Such a great lineup. I was also listening to live stuff from the "Hymn of the Seventh Galaxy" lineup, love Bill Connors' guitar playing, and man Stanley Clark is such a beast. Everyone's so on point. Just finished Rush - Hemispheres
  16. Chick Corea - "Return To Forever" youtube videos with Bill Connors, Lenny White, and Stanley Clarke. Phenomenal. RIP.
  17. some promo tracks - Turris Eburnea - "Malachite Mountains" Paysage d'Hiver - "Bluet"
  18. Bloodbath - The Fathomless Mastery
  19. Oh for sure, I use Photoshop all the time. It's a necessary tool. Mostly for getting the photos I take of my paintings into a final, print-ready state, but also for logo designs, t shirts, digital "painting", and sometimes photo composites that I use as reference when I'm painting. I don't think there is any "cheating" when it comes to illustration, as long as you're doing your own original work. I don't use Photoshop to try and fool people into thinking I'm a more capable painter, if that's what you mean. As far as art for my own music, I think you're right that I'm probably too close t
