Favourite place to listen to metal

Recommended Posts

Re: Favourite place to listen to metal When I lived with my parents it was always my bedroom, or if they were out the living room. Anymore I'd say my living room because that way I can blast it and hear it all over my house! :D Other than that I'd say live. I love listening to music in my car but the sound quality always sucks.

If you like live music, you should try going to shows once in a while...

Re: Favourite place to listen to metal

Also' date=' I tend to listen to vinyls when I'm doing housework. Doing laundry is much more enjoyable with a metal accompaniment.[/quote'] :o SOMEONE ELSE DOES THIS! I'd get bored witless if I had to do cleaning without my metal. As for favorite place? Probably the car when I'm driving alone. It is then that I can play it at a level I deem appropriate, which roughly approximates the level at which it is easily heard by others. We've got loads of people who play rap loud; I am merely diversifying the method by which your average driver gets indigestion. Other than that, anywhere with speakers strong enough to put up with a lot of bass. Oh, and people who won't complain. That usually means I'll have to be alone.

Re: Favourite place to listen to metal my folks pretty much despise metal so I can only ever play it loud when they aren't around, that being said my mum doesn't think Judas Priest and Iron Maiden are metal (and when it means I can play them at insanely high volume I'm not gonna tell her otherwise) anyway, I like listening to metal EVERYWHERE!!!

Re: Favourite place to listen to metal I can listen to metal while being tortured and still be happy, heh. I suppose my favorite place to listen to it is at school, though. Since It drowns out everyone's whiny, loud voices, and helps me concentrate on work and stuff.

Re: Favourite place to listen to metal ah school, I miss school 'cause at lunch my mates and I would just hang around comparing metal, that just doesn't happen at university, though having said that I have noticed a few people (besides myself) wearing metal shirts around the uni so I try and chat with them when I can

Re: Favourite place to listen to metal I'm the opposite, metal occupies my full attention when it's on, so if I'm trying to have a conversation or engage in something that requires active thinking, my focus is always drawn away from the activity in favor of listening to the song.

Re: Favourite place to listen to metal Funeral doom can be difficult driving music, other times soothing, it really just depends on my mood and surroundings. It's great in a rainstorm, or when I've got a long way to go on the freeway, so I don't have to focus as much on the road as I would in traffic. Funeral doom is consuming music, it's not easy listening and it's not something you can just put on anytime, you need to be able to absorb it and let it absorb you.

One of the main reasons I suspect marriage won't be a feasible option for me. I also like listening to metal while studying. Takes the edge of the oppressive boredom.

    • 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!
