  2. Welcome to the forum, hope you enjoy the place. I still listen to a bunch of Swedish and Finnish DM from back in the day. Fun stuff.
  3. They're great. This one's my favorite of theirs - "From The Lion's Mouth". Another 1981 gem. I also enjoy their previous album "Jeopardy" and the more polished "Hands and Hearts".
  4. The video has a lo-fi quality that's a bit haunting to me, and surprisingly it doesn't sound like garbage for being a live recording from almost 40 years ago. Do you know The Sound? I've been addicted to them for a few months now, great stuff especially early on. NP: Selbst - Relatos De Angustia
  5. The Comsat Angels - Live audio/partial video from Tuebingen, West Germany, 1981 - more Joy Division/The Sound-style post-punk, might appeal to @Natassja.
  6. Doing alright for the moment man, working on a bit of art and music. Like I mentioned to Nat earlier, we got COVID right before the new year, but we made it through ok. Just trying to stay healthy and get back in shape now. I've been home with my son nonstop for almost a year now, hard to believe... How have you been?

  7. Fantastic mental image, goes great with my veggie burger.
  8. Glad to see you're still rocking that Pagan's Mind, good stuff.
  9. Thanks man. I have done some metal cover art, yes, and I'm actually working on a couple of projects right now. After these are finished I'm not planning to take any more jobs along these lines for a while, though. I need to make the time for some personal ideas that I've been putting to the side for too long. Seems like I can do work for other people, or do work of my own, but not both. Oddly, as much as I like painting, for my own music I've always like photo-based stuff better. Paintings just don't seem to feel right for it. Maybe I'm too close to it. I have an easy time coming up with im
  10. The Sound - From The Lion's Mouth Deathspell Omega - Drought Bisbâyé - Le Sens De La Fin
  11. We did all get it, yeah. Most likely from a patient at my wife's work, she can't avoid coming into contact with people. I suppose it was a matter of time. Our son was thankfully fine, he had a little fever but felt ok throughout. My wife and I were both wiped out for a good two weeks. The symptoms were pretty harsh, but we were able to get through it at home. The only issues that remain are a bit of loss of smell and taste, and fatigue/insomnia. I hope everyone that can handle it gets vaccinated. Sorry to hear you're dealing with another lockdown, but I think you've got every reason to feel pa
  12. We're ok, thank you. We got COVID right after Christmas, which was frustrating considering how careful we are, and it fucking sucked. We're doing a lot better now though. Just home in the bleak midwinter taking lots of vitamin D and trying to stay sane. How are you and yours?
  13. Not off the top of my head, no. I got to see them with the two-drummer lineup years ago and I was blown away. Amazing power in the sound and performance. It was totally captivating. If I come across anything good, I'll let you know.
  14. I agree. Good parts, good songs, and I think that's the closest they've come to capturing the energy of the two-drummer lineup on a studio recording. NP: Blut Aus Nord - Deus Salutis Meae
  15. I'm not a huge huge fan of their studio albums in general, but that one's great, definitely my favorite of theirs.
  16. Eximperitusagtffytdjkjblihletc.etc.etc. - Sahrartu ...meh. I might have loved this fifteen years ago but this kind of DM has become less and less engaging to me. Oh well. Deathspell Omega - Kenose
  17. Moved to promo section. Please keep any further related posts in this thread.
  18. Deathspell Omega - Drought NEDXXX - s/t Ulver - Themes From "The Marriage Of Heaven And Hell"
  19. The Sound - Heads & Hearts Deathspell Omega - Paracletus
  20. Welcome back, not a lot going on here currently but it's nice to see you around again.
  21. Craft - White Noise & Black Metal The Ruins Of Beverast - The Thule Grimoires
  22. New Intonate album "Severed Within" due out this April. Their debut "The Swerve" was a cool, riffy modern tech death album that wasn't sterile and didn't sound like everybody else. Promo track sounds good, the bass is nice and prominent like their last recording - check it out at Invisible Oranges: https://www.invisibleoranges.com/intonate-yearn-premiere/ The debut album from Isgherurd Morth is coming out in March. New school dissonant BM ( in a good way) with some post-BM atmosphere, impressive musicianship, caustic vocals and a great, clear sound, featuring one of Necrophagist's previou
  23. I've merged this with our album covers thread. Feel free to share some images. The best way to do that here is to link from another site since our upload limit is so small. If you link to the actual image it should embed automatically.
  24. Man, I love metal cover art. When I was a teenager the height of my artistic ambition was to do cover art and shirt designs for bands. But generally, even though I love to see "good" art, I find that I don't care a whole lot when it comes to listening; there's a disconnect for me between liking the art and being drawn to the music. I guess I've enjoyed so many albums with cheesy, subpar, or downright bad covers, and been let down often enough by the music behind killer visuals, that it's no longer a big draw for me. I'm sure I've semi-consciously avoided some stuff based on the cover art/logo/
