    This thread was over 200 without bickering until you showed up. Why don’t you chill out or leave.

    The age perspective is interesting because a lot of the old heads here were into this music before the internet and discovered music the old fashioned where no one talked rudely like you are. You’re obviously just a young guy trying to act tough. It’s not like we haven’t seen your act before lol.

    I'm 44 and I've been listening to underground metal since 1988 or 1989. I'm not trying to act tough, and I'm not the petty immature jackwagon talking about people "behind their back" (as you did when I took a break from here) . I am however very impatient and intolerant of ignorance and hypocrisy. If you think I "talk rudely" I am glad you weren't around on sites like MMBB, Lapland, FMP666, MetalWarriors, or any of the forums that kicked butt when the "internet" went widely popular; you wouldn't have lasted 3 minutes. They made the (now defunct) NWN forum look like a well regulated and polite playground. Being around that long and active on those forums, and trading and buying physical media( complete with IRC sendbacks!) is why I have that kind of knowledge (Rob Darken contributing to Behemoth demos 25+ years ago, among other things) . Sorry to burst your bubble, but it is what it is. I wasn't aware the thread wasn't allowed to actually discuss things; just to mindlessly submit links and circle-back-pat without learning anything about the bands

    Here's a great new release
    Runespell / Forest Mysticism - Wandering Forlorn, by Iron Bonehead Productions , well unless you're upset that Runespell has covered Absurd songs... or his otherwise shady connections.

    I was thinking about the lack of bickering here and how Grrrrr became like a Gentleman's Lounge. Fireplace, leather chairs, pipes puffing and mature friends conversing over scotch with Darkthrone on the speakers. How it's not a gladiatorial arena where combatants fight to the death. In the outside world I don't confront and challenge my friends, and that's how I think of the guys here, friends. If I disagree with what a buddy says I don't get in his face. I might disagree diplomatically or I say nothing at all and move on.
    Everyone is wrong about everything all the time! There is no cure! :laugh:

    If the Pixies went black? Some of that current who knows what the genre is but its just beautiful in places. Accordion and saxophone finish.

    "Eld' is the literal and metaphorical narrative about death; relating two travelers sitting by a fire in the forest, with one being far out of her element. Through the assistance of hard psychedelic drugs, the antagonist is luring and ultimately forcing the protagonist to abandon the world as she knows it; accepting the unavoidable: the death of her ego and physical body, ultimately finds relief and purpose -- This is the album's revelation."

    From La belle province (Quebec), I love the way the standard BM will give way to pure 70's power chords.

    You know you're a maniac when you text a few friends who have zero interest and insist they listen and look for 45 seconds from 2:30 just so they know the specific musical rapturous brain virus you are afflicted with.



    I'm reminded of that when reading an interview with TOV guitarist Alex Awn. AN NCS INTERVIEW: TEMPLE OF VOID (ALEX AWN) - NO CLEAN SINGING Copying just a little of that.

    "Well, how did you go further from your grinding death metal sound? Did you know what this album would be different from the start?

    Of Terror and the Supernatural was predominantly doom. Lords Of Death was predominantly death. So we had a 50/50 balance between the two. And as a death-doom band we have a lot of potential arrows in our quiver. Just as Of Terror and the Supernatural didn’t set the die for how we’d forever sound, I don’t think Lords Of Death did either. And The World That Was won’t dictate how we sound in the future. There’s a thread that permeates everything we do. It’s always recognizable as Temple of Void. We can’t ever lose that. But it might manifest itself differently from time to time.

    The first track we wrote for The World That Was was actually the closer, “The World that Was.” So based on that we wondered if we’d be writing these sprawling 10-minute epics for the album. But it didn’t turn out that way. We couldn’t have anticipated tracks like “Self-Schism” or “Leave the Light Behind.” We just write and we jam and we keep what we like and ditch what we don’t. Our albums happen very organically. They’re not preconceived directions. We labor intently over the songcraft. But I don’t think we ever know what an album is going to sound like before we start writing. All we know is that it will have death, it will have doom, and it will sound like Temple of Void. But that’s a very 50,000 ft view. We don’t know what surprises we’ll generate along the way."

    Yeah, I'm out, we'll just have to agree to disagree. I've stated my stance on this, I'm not that deep into the scene, I'm a casual metal fan that's just trying to find music I like listening to, and frankly, there are far more things in the world today for me to worry about. I do my best to not listen to or support NSBM (and as far as I know, I honestly don't), but I'm not going to get into the minutia of what percent of black metal it constitutes. Take care.

    Every BM band that has been around for a long time has some connection to someone or something that is NS. Doesn't really mean anything at this juncture. Of course, ANTIFA categorizes every BM band as racist and whatnot due to the vast majority of musicians being male and white. I do not have that many grains of salt around. Lol. Don't sweat it man

    well, your avatar is Abbath (I guess we'll ignore his past associations with Varg since it's before he went full Nazi),.... who released that album on Season of Mist, who continues to sell their back-catalogue of Inquisition albums, given Dagon's predilections towards the Nazi flag and Roman Salute, as well as other unsavory acts.... Season of Mist officially distributed the recent repress of the Osculum Infame DLP, regularly sell Graveland merch, various Romaen Saenko materials, Clandestine Blaze merch, had Deathspell Omega on their roster, etc etc.
    Yeh, you don't support it. LOL. You'd have to be more than a casual, casual listerner to not know any of this.

    I don't think you should "Sweat it", I just also don't think you should be ignorant of it.

    Somewhere around four years and only a single negative blip. Continue to tune in even if you don't write. You are most welcome here. :)

    Mature dudes talking metal (one of their uncles could have been a scofflaw 35 years ago I fear).

    Maybe it was the 25 not great songs I listened to prior that had this leap out as pretty good. Why do I love big power chords so damn much? Relatos De Angustia, by SELBST
