Oh yes, every night. You want proof? Sometimes the last biscuit goes missing from the jar and no-one admits to taking it, sometimes the coffee machine is running low on water even though everyone know

IT'S KARL DAMMIT

Natassja Tractor or Combine Harvester

Re: who would you rather be? Wil-e, I'd catch road runner... wait you've never seen x-men? power to control metal vs power to basically do whatever the fuck you want using telekinesis, including altering the molecular structure of well anything Tony Blair or Boris Johnson

Nelson. Eventually free where as only death will free Hawkins. Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin. Some of you may have to google these two. Lol.
Actually, I remember both names from Winter Olympics in 2010. I think I'd rather be Crosby, at least he plays on the Olympic team of a country with a functioning democracy. Rembrandt or Bernini?

Re: who would you rather be? Mundine sounds dreadfully obnoxious. That said, Meriweather doesn't sound too great either, but at least he doesn't seem to pretend to speak for anyone but himself.

Would you rather be in a black metal band or a death metal band?
As long as it's tech-death, this is a no-brainer for me... :mrgreen: Viktor Bout or Garry Kasparov?

Re: who would you rather be?

Bergman. I only enjoy maybe three Kubrick films (Dr. Strangelove' date=' 2001, A Clockwork Orange), whereas Bergman has yet to disappoint me. [/quote'] Those are my favorites of his (with the exception that Full Metal Jacket would make my top list too), but I haven't seen much of Bergman's work. I've only recently become acquainted with his films, but I very much enjoy his style and will be looking forward to more from him. That's an easy one, Lynch wins by a longshot. Cronenberg has made some great films, but Lynch's material is mindblowing. Mulholland Drive, Eraserhead, Lost Highway, and Blue Velvet rank as some of my favorite films of all time, not to mention his brilliant work with Twin Peaks (which I haven't seen all of yet, but am loving it). Scorsese or Coppola (obviously not his daughter)?

    • 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!
