I dug Until the Light Takes Us a lot. Gylve is fucking rad.

Heavy Metal Baghdad was really cool, also. I teared up during a scene where a crowd was chanting their name. Musically, the band is not interesting, but goddamn what a story! I hope they are knee deep in hookers and blow right now. They deserve it.

The Cannibal Corpse documentary is pretty fucking cool, too.

I have Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage and thought it was a fantastic look at a phenomenal band. I'll definitely give Metal: A Headbanger's Journey a look.

Blue Collar Rock Star is really good, about 3 bands trying to make it, with interviews with Dave Brockie, randy blythe and others.
Yeah, it was on mine. They're pretty good. I found them while browsing around on iTunes.

Today is going to be a good day. About to lift some weights, then spend the rest of the day drinking, eating too much, and watching football (Roll Tide, motherfuckers).

So, it's time for sludgy retarded hardcore with brotastic breakdowns, right?

I thought so.

Yeah, my mom enjoyed it, and she doesn't even like Rush.

I got that dvd for ten bucks at a Guitar Center.

Then I took it home and found out it was a Blu -ray

I don't have a blu ray player.

I still want to watch it

I just got done listening to "Natasha" by Pig Destroyer; so eerie. Does anyone know of any other long, creepy Doom epics in that vein?

This came in the mail yesterday:



I'm pretty impressed that they got Lars Ulrich and Dave Mustaine to write a foreword for a book that is limited to 500 copies exclusively through the Diamond Head website.

The rest of youse should listen to Seven Sisters of Sleep and The New Lows. SSoS is Melvins or Sleep with a chance of Crowbar (it's doom, it's sludge, it's what's for dinner!), TNL is raw dog hardcore all over your face.

That is pretty impressive, although given their influence on both bands they probably just had to set Lars down with a keyboard and then tell him to limit his gushing praise to 500 words or less. Let me know how it reads, I'm interested in it myself now that I know about it but I'm broke for a couple of weeks.

They put the word "Metallica" on the cover, so it was either a foreword or a lawsuit, I guess.

@ Stephen: Ordered the Seven Sisters thing due to being impressed with songs on Youtube and the fact that Arm & Sword guys are involved. New Lows will be my weightlifting music today.

The band or the album? Regardless of which answer you give, you'll still need to be more explicit.

I had to review Tentacles of Whorror back in the day. I fucking hated it, but I still felt I had to acknowledge that it was a "well done" ambient (in the boring, droning guitar way, not the goofy ass keyboard way) one man black metal project. That whole scene is/was anathema to me, though. It sounded shitty just to sound shitty and the guy's hatred of the EVVVVVVVVVERYTHING was intolerably overwrought.

Is it weird that such a negative reaction propels me to check it out?

Not if the person giving the reaction just isn't into that sub-genre and is repelled by everything that attracts you to it.

I really cannot stand one-man black metal ambient stuff, either, but I hear Leviathan are really good at it!

My personality is like this: it sucks? Now I gotta see for myself!

Burzum - never heard because of you know, and Lords of Chaos certainly makes Varg seem really dumb, but how is Burzum? Worth a spin?

I hated that too!

Now then, if you want something that I hate and has absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever, my I present Oceans of Sadness?

My buddy Fishermane brilliantly summed them up like this:

Quote:
Fishermane: Oceans of Sadness? Look at you guys, sitting in the dark, writing songs about palaces while drooling over your glow-in-the-dark map of Atlantis. You’re fucking pathetic…
You could also check out Misery Inc or Inner Surge or... fuck, why I reliving this shit?

So that oceans of sadness song sounds like some sort of jrpg music (read: not cool)

Misery - gah sucks as well, but in less hilarious way.

Inner Surge - this guys wish they were System of a Down, very millenial, if you know what I mean.

GWAR news that no one gives a shit about other than myself:

The 2nd and 4th Beefcake the Mighty, Casey Orr, of Rigor Mortis "fame" has left GWAR to reform Rigor Mortis. Who will be the next Beefcake? An even FATTER man???

I thought you never listened to Burzum, Stephen. When did that change?
I like "Det Som Engang Var" and "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss". I prefer the former. Check 'em out.

Mastodon has announced tour dates for this fall and I am planning on attending the Indianapolis show with some friends. Red Fang and Dillinger Escape Plan are opening. ROCK! \m/

The second part of that post was meant for you, chud, by the way.
Just be prepared for Varg's hilariously awful vocals.

I just read this over at Ultimate Guitar, Judas Priest's new compilation album's tracks were selected by other metal musicians. Overall a good selection, but I think it is sadly telling that Painkiller is the most recent album represented. One might argue that the earlier stuff is what those guys were listening to (when growing up, some of them) and was more influential... but surely Priest has put out stuff worth listening to in the last two decades, right?

Doubtful!
Of course I'd probably feel the same way about Maiden.

I like Jugulator quite a bit. It showed that they weren't afraid to change their sound a bit and get a little heavier and faster, Scott Travis was the best thing to happen to that band. And the song Cathedral Spires is really great. Not quite Victim of Changes (live version) great, but still great.

I agree 100%. Jugulator was pretty good, esp. Cathedral Spires. Ripper Owens has got quite a voice.

(I actually like a few songs from Demolition too... >.>)

Which reminds me, check out the Roadrunner United 25th anniversary show. It's alot of fun. Roadrunner artists performing songs by other Roadrunner artists in assorted groupings.
