Re: Pets

Honestly Iceni' date=' this is a serious thread..... :|[/quote'] I'll let MetalMaiden define the seriousness of the thread. In the meantime, apoc has stayed on topic yet apparently still thinks I'm a riot. I did once have a blue and red Siamese fighting fish named Union Jack. But then it just went and died on me. Not very faithful pets, fish. :|

Re: Pets

This thread may be filled with lighthearted comedic remarks, as long as it does not dwell off of the universal topic (pets). Also, Union Jack is the greatest name a fish could ever have.
Thanks...but something tells me people might think that Kerry King would be a better name... I used to wish that, if it were possible, I could have a pet baboon, preferably a big one. He would be immensely useful as he would be sapien and able to fetch me things. In addition, he could secure the property well.

Re: Pets

I want a penguin. Or a turtle' date=' or a koala. But preferably a penguin, because they're so cool.[/quote'] Turtles aren't bad. Box turtles are probably the easiest to take care of. Red ear turtles are assholes however. My wife and I have a black lab named Mr. Grimm. He's the most hyper active dog I've every owned and he's a complete bitch on top of that. Dogs ftw!

Re: Pets my family has had a bunch of pets, first had a golden lab that was failed as a seeing eye dog (you know those dogs that help the blind), then some parrots that escaped about three months after we bought 'em, then we got a cat which ran away for no reason, then a blue heeler that we took in from an animal shelter but it must have been messed up by the previous owner cos it really didn't like people, then a siberian huskie and now I've got a black lab. I want to get a pet snake but that probably wouldn't go down so well

    • 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!
