Looked like a proper set of hair on my phone, turned out to be a hoodie! 😛

Oh yeah, I can sort of see what you mean. That's how he looked in the 90s. ;)

My art/photography- a few favorites of mine. Some new & older ones.

I was going to add a photo of myself but for some reason igmur is not letting me load it. Maybe later. 

Edit: I wanted to post a cool "so metal" photo of me at Duff's bar in Brooklyn but igmur apparently hates it so here's a boring selfie instead. 😆

I'm wondering if our image embedding protocol changed behind the scenes recently. From what I can see, yours should be showing up as images, but all I have are links. Hmm... nope, it works fine for me:

Maybe it's a formatting issue? If it matters to you, try editing your post; if you copy the actual image url it should embed properly. This one reminds me of Altar Of Plagues' last album cover a little.

Here's an amazing little creature my wife brought in for a minute today after rescuing it from the side of the road:

It looks like a curled-up leaf from even a couple feet away.

Omgg what a cutie! Reminds of the green little caterpillar that was on my door yesterday. They're so beautiful.

This one was really impressive, it was about 3.5 inches long and its camouflage was excellent. Hungry little thing, didn't stop munching the whole time it was inside. A timberline hornworm, apparently.

Pictures of trees are kvlt!  They are literally my go to picture thing whenever I go anywhere.  I think I put some up from my visit to Fairy Glen a couple of years back somewhere on this thread.

Like the reflections photo in particular too.  Cool stuff.  Reminds me of an artist I follow on Instagram who used to be called Old Hag but has had issues with her stuff being stolen so she changed her account and I can’t remember what it is called now.  She’s married to the guy out of Arckanum.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
