    FatherAlabaster gave a Damn to Requiem in Books?   
    I've submerged myself back into Middle-Earth and am nearly finished 'The Fellowship of the Ring'.
    It's the first time I've read 'The Lord of the Rings' since my very early 20s, so it's been about 17 or 18 years, and unfortunately a lot of my understanding of the books are actually of the films.
    While I obviously know the basic plot, the details of the novel had really escaped me, and I'm enjoying it more than ever. What an amazing, beautiful, work it is. Far, far better than the films. There is already a heap of material that I had completely forgotten about, and it's a little like reading the text for the first time. 
    The other thing is, when I was 21 and I read it, I got it, I loved it and it's great. Now that I'm 40, it suddenly takes on a whole new essence, and little things that didn't seem important to me 20 years ago are now of profound significance. 
    Not a very original post for a metal forum, but a true reflection on my current circumstances. A hot chocolate in bed with 'The Lord of the Rings' is pretty hard to beat in this crazy modern life of ours.

    FatherAlabaster given a Damn from Balor in Issues with lyrics, content, and rules in the band.   
    Weird. Sorry, this sounds like a bullshit situation. It doesn't sound like cultural appropriation at all, and if you wrote the lyrics, the title should be your choice IMO, unless you have another arrangement in place already. You've got to be on the same page as the people you're playing with. I could see a group turning down something truly objectionable, or maybe having a discussion about what titles and subject matter are the best fit, but this isn't that. Sounds more like ego. If you can live with a compromise and everything else about the band is great, then let it go; if it feels like an important enough issue that you would regret not standing up for yourself, then you should do that.

    Their debut is excellent. We actually already have a topic going about this, gotta do some spring cleaning around here:

    FatherAlabaster given a Damn from MetalValkyrien in How many of you are using spotify?   
    I really hate Spotify. Bandcamp and YouTube are great for checking out new music. I buy music either through Bandcamp or (for physical purchases of stuff that isn't on BC) I'll look for CDs on themetaldetektor.com. I'll put CDs on in the car, or occasionally in my studio room, but mostly I buy digital or rip the albums and listen on my phone or computer.

    Nice.  Not played this for a while. One of my favourite ever Bandcamp discoveries from back when I lived on the site virtually.  Might dig this out later.
