  1. An urn and a little plaque should do me fine, thanks man.
  2. Definitely don't try it. It's awful. Nobody who likes Woodford should try it. Also, nobody should ever under any circumstances try the red bamboo mead I'm drinking now. Who wants something honey-forward and rich with a noticeable up-front sweetness that gives way to a pleasantly lingering, mildly tart bitter quality? Who wants something perfectly chilled that rolls across the tongue like magic? Just say no. Put that bottle down.
  3. Happy holiday wishes to everyone, hope you're all well.
  4. Earlier it was a rum drink, then it was some "holiday" beer, then a glass of red wine with dinner, then my wife said she wanted the bubbly white... Here we are. Isn't there a song about this? May need to find the "if you're drunk" thread in a little bit.
  5. ...some Christmas music, and then Gentle Giant - The Power And The Glory Aesop Rock - Labor Days Protector - Golem
  6. I'm happy to revisit stuff I didn't enjoy, as always, but from what I remember it was a pretty middle of the road effort. Nothing special, not what I'd want to hear from the musicians involved.
  7. Ulthar - Cosmovore ...aaaand it's a left turn into Christmas music
  8. Woodford Reserve malt whiskey - not the bourbon! First time I've seen this. I love it.
  9. Promote Yourself is the place to go.
  10. Abigor - Totschläger Selbst - Relatos De Angustia Enslaved - Utgard Evoken - Hypnagogia Grave Miasma - Odori Sepulcrorum
  11. Abigor - Totschläger Gorguts - Colored Sands
  12. Dødheimsgard - Supervillain Outcast My Dying Bride - As The Flower Withers Abigor - Totschläger ...man, I'm hooked on this album right now. If you're in the mood for some dense, riffy black metal, give it a shot. Abyssal - Novit Enim Dominus Qui Sunt Eius
  13. Selbst - Relatos De Angustia ...finally really getting to chew on this album while painting, and I'm enjoying the hell out of it, I'd say even a step up from the very good self-titled. Enslaved - Utgard
  14. Ulcerate - Stare Into Death And Be Still
  15. Ah, Jungle Rot, there's a band I haven't listened to in years and years. Used to really enjoy them for meat and potatoes DM. Honestly, "didn't like it, then gone back for another go and really like it" is the story of my journey through metal, there are so many great albums that I just didn't connect with right away. In some cases it's taken me years to come around.
  16. There's tons of good melodic black metal, especially from the mid 90s on. Try Sacramentum's "Far Away From The Sun", Naglfar's "Vittra", Rotting Christ's "Non Serviam" and " Triarchy Of The Lost Lovers" (they were moving away from BM on "Triarchy" but it's a fantastic album with tons of dark melodies nonetheless), Abigor's "Nachthymnen", Dawn's "Slaughtersun"... if any of that appeals, I might be able to recommend more. If you're into the more progressive/viking side of things, Enslaved has a bunch of great albums. I love old Satyricon - "The Shadowthrone" is my favorite. Gotta say "Age Of Ner
  17. Rush - Power Windows Running Wild - Port Royal
  18. Nice topic. I haven't been listening to as much death metal as usual lately, but I've found new enjoyment in some stuff I didn't really dig before. The most recent one is the latest Blood Incantation album - I was blown away by their live set but something about the recording of "Starspawn" keeps me at arm's length no matter how much I try. "Hidden History" connected immediately but I didn't revisit it until a few weeks ago, and I have to say I think it's a fucking masterpiece. Love the pacing, the melodies, the atmosphere... Everything comes together. A surprise older album in rotation l
  19. Akercocke - Renaissance In Extremis Schoenberg - Verklaerte Nacht Ulthar - Cosmovore
  20. This again. I haven't connected with a lot of their later stuff but this new one is a fucking banger.
