    Thy Worshiper is also how a well produced black metal bands sound to me! ;)

    Damn video camera up and died on me just before that changed, heh...now they are almost Mikael Akerfeldt levels of deepness with clarity. The only downside: it's so intense and hard to do that I can only do backing style growls, haha....damn breathing issues. As far as avant-garde metal goes, In the Woods... never really struck me as avant-garde the same way other black metal influenced bands like THy Worshiper did: https://thyworshiper.bandcamp.com/album/czarna-dzika-czerwien It's easily the best fucking tribal metal album, the percussion on it is rivalled by only Myrath's album Desert Call to me! As far as Islam goes, it's hilarious how liberals are so quick to call "islamophobia" out when dieas should always be held up to scrutiny, isn't it? I do hope the best for Orphaned Land, though I can see how they could be cheesy to people that aren't massive oriental folk fans like myself. I actually want a sitar expression pedal someday, the same one that John 5 uses.

    Anyway yeah it is a whole thing... Look it up and then let me know if you can make it, *sigh* I know. Nevertheless there are still good bands playing and more affordable for sure... (I will be at both) ;)

    ROTFLMAO!!!! <== I don't use that meaninglessly. I knew I would catch some hate for this but "a lot" of my "CALI/WE-CST" homies can't afford a trip to the east and I must admit there is a bunch of good ones...." *drools on-self*

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m7W1tbi93g never really saw myself as a good vocalist growls aside...a lot of passion went into stuff like this, why I kept the videos uploaded when the password was still around (yay, awkward undeletable old videos! Lol.) I feel the pain of poor quality hardware for recording, there's nothing like making do with a $130 interface and $360 6 string bass (that's dirt cheap quality for that many strings) to really expose any production issues with the audio going in. Neal Morse's lyrics are still less annoying than Jason Wisdom's (Becoming the Archetype) since they are just corny and not downright anti-science at their worst. Christianity at its worst still doesn't rival how Islam affects people on a daily basis when Sharia Law is involved though, it's why I consider Orphaned Land brave as fuck for doing what they do! I'll try of Heart of Ages at some point, been finding it hard to find good bands that hook me and don't want that to spread...hail albums!

    Yeah it looks like I will be attending this year as well as the "MDF: California Deathfest" *sigh* yeah that is a thing but... I'm just glad to be attending fests this year. I don't get the opportunity to attend as many shows as I used to so I need to cram them all in at once apparently. Please let me know even if you only attend one day it would be cool to hang. =)

    I think it's the Black Metal one.

    Hmm....Spock's Beard is an interesting case. Better lyrically since Neal Morse left, worse musically. You're referring to Snow, right? Snow is a good album to just relax to if you can just tune out the vocals, but V is definitely the best of the Spock's Beard stuff I've sampled (which is admittedly about 4 albums...it's cool that they did an audiophile release for the new album, though. I just have to make sure they didn't have it mastered TOO quietly.) Really, the only religious band that I can get behind entirely lyrically is Orphaned Land....I love how a call to piece to appease God is like Stockholm Syndrome, even on their best material haha; Whatever helps the clusterfuck in the Middle East I support, though. Is there a specific first track by In the Woods I should hear? THey seemed like a kinda underwhelming version of Dan Swano's Nightingale project, but hopefully I'm wrong.

    Heh, I like the well produced and creative black metal like Xanthobhroid, Ne Obliviscaris and Thy Worshiper styled bands. As a whole, I'd actually like the genre more if it was better produced as a whole. The folky/symphonic bands tend to do best in that regard, Carach Angren and Shade Empire don't have as much audio shredding even. Randy Blythe was blamed for the murder of a fan during a mosh pit...funny you went there though, they did an anti-redneck song haha: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqdZpxkzNvc Growls are really tricky...I just went by the principle of not doing anything that hurt and slowly gained power just by sticking with it and practicing. TOok about 2 years, but they're probably about Mikael Akerfeldt levels of deep these days...maybe THe Zen of Screaming will help you. Steven WIlson's style sounds like piano recitals passed off as prog rock lol.

    Thank you, I'm definitely about to give them a spin. I haven't done it yet, I'm waiting for the mood for new things. Cheers :)

    Hey Snob... What up? I remember you btw. You going to MDF this year?

    Opeth left their second era back when they had finally gotten consistent song writing quality (the Still Life stuff onwards had various Steven Wilson tracks that always bored me to tears, like A Fair Judgment.) Heritage was kinda what got me interested in looking up bands like Yes and Jethro Tull, but even on a neo-prog level the new stuff doesn't work like SPock's Beard and Haken do. Opeth was always at their best when they broke their frequent, excessive restraint, and now that's basically all they are. Goblin was probably the best of the third era tracks, given the awesome delay effects.

    Fair warning: lamb of God gets some pretty abysmal production...but the music makes up for that to me, they are the rare case of an American metal band hooking me. Ashes of the Wake has Laid to Rest and Now YOu've Got SOmething to Die For, could definitely start there! It'll be interesting to hear how pissed off Randy BLythe will be after his imprisonment a few years back. Growling is....tricky. It can never be entirely throat, but from the sounds of it, you don't have breathing issues like I do. If you can get power from your diaphragm, that's technically the right way of doing it...I've sadly had to use more throat, but I don't recommend it if you can't growl through the diaphragm...easy to accidentally shred the vocal cords. General thing with aggressive vocals: if it hurts, focus on separate areas like tongue placement. It also helps if you save air in the bottom of your chest, but I imagine you already know about that ;)

    Of course, I love Tuomas Saukonnen's work, but ti sadly has the same flaw. Maybe I just wish more metal bands experimented with chords like Lamb of God, though...might've raised my standards a touch too high lately. Evil disco mixed with grindcore could potentially be the most whacked metal subgenre, haha. Might have to add disco to my remix of Carnival in Coal's Daaahhh now! I do wish Opeth would bring back their metal influences, especially since Ghost Reveries was the peak of their post Morningrise albums...probably their most progressive as well, since it brought out the prog rock side of their influences more.

    If you don't have a very strong voice for singing naturally, you could always give Ne obliviscaris/Ihsahn/modern Katatonia style singing a shot. it actually usually has a great dynamic from the aggressive vocal parts in metal when done well to me, I never understood metal fans that abvjectly opposed it...'70s and '80s metal was all sung, even. Speaking as a punk rock fan, pop punk is a very disappointing genre BECAUSE of the vocals and the lyrics. If you're going into vocals like that, there's always melodic hardcore like Rise Against's more aggressive tracks. Their albums like Appeal to Reason even throw some hard rock in there while keeping the meaningful lyrics. WHy would I be worried about youliking Pink Floyd? Snobs can like whatever they like, as Cinema Snob taught me ;). The thing about Devin Townsend is that he never really messed around much with chord shapes/progressions...might be why tempo changes/vocla transitions/experimentation interested me the most with him.

    The only "big" grievance in Finland is this custodial attitude towards alcohol beverages. I just love handcrafted beers, but the legislation has kept the rope around microbreweries far too tight. Just my two cents haha. Well, where are you from? And what kind of business do you have? Do you like wilderness? If you do, then you should definitely visit Koli National Park. It's located in my childhood town, and even if I've visited it many times I still can't get enough from it. I've photographed for like 8 years now and it's a gorgeous place for taking landscape, nature and animal photos.

    Well, they played in quite a small theatre which really worked for the music and especially for Ché - did her justice. Her voice was like 10 x more impressive and very vivid. Yeah, I sure am delirious with excitement at the UK gig! I used to listen The Berzerker a lot when I was a sulking teenager haha. Your charts are epic as hell! I like your Devin and Ihsahn charts. I saw Emperor this summer at Tuska O:A - at last! And you have a nice variation in your charts - not just plain tr00 brutal music. For some time I've enjoyed all kinds of music from folk to jazz, but particularly different rock and metal genres. I've had my Led Zeppelin crush now for like two years and it still hasn't let me go lol. Oh, you're planning moving to Nordic? Nice! Well, you can't really go wrong should you pick any of those. I'd certainly recommend Finland! We have diverse social security, clean and beautiful nature (e.g. thousands and thousands of lakes and forested hills) and great educational system.

    Rani Sharone's bass playing definitely has a lot of Primus, haha...they are basically the most circus-y metal I know except for maybe Darth Vegas/some early Haken parts. As for Primus hooking me...maybe someday. Les Claypool is weird even to me haha. Devin Townsend experiments, but he always has the same basic rhythms it seems (on his metal stuff...I don't like new age or country.) Maybe if more of his material had the balls to the wall nuttiness of SYnchestra/Deconstruction....Deconstruction did get me into avant-garde metal though, he'll always have that credit, and that Clutch Cargo beanie whale was indeed on By a Thread! Carnival in Coal are awesome, I actually have a copy of Fear Not...probably the only other avant-garde metal I have on CD. Gang Bang is what Static-X should her, it actually is evil disco lol. Still have to look into Crotchduster more, but they seemed fun. Also, call me crazy if you want, but I consider Morningrise more along the lines of epic black metal...

Über mich

Only the best and the classiest of all music will be seen on my page.


Warning: If you want to add me to your friend-list, then please have a conversation with me first. This is a social networking site, not high school. No one cares how many "friends" you have. The point is to converse with like-minded people about music and whatever else comes to mind.

I'm a huge Prog junkie! Progressive and Experimental music is my favorite. I just love musicians that aim to make their music different that what other people are putting out. I also enjoy most sub genres of Metal. My favorites (other than prog) is Black Metal, Power Metal, Heavy Metal, Folk Metal and Death Metal. I also enjoy Rock, Classical, Jazz, Folk and a tiny dash of Rap and Electronic music. Though if I had to name a few favorite artists I'd probably go with Devin Townsend, Ihsahn, Arjen Anthony Lucassen, Anneke Van Giersbergen, Kate Bush, Dan Swano, Duke Ellington, David Bowie, Garm and Loreena McKennit

Some of the best bands of this generation are (albums released 2000 and up):
Aquilus
Leprous
Ne Obliviscaris
The Dear Hunter
Stolen Babies
Dodsengel
Alcest
Gojira
Haken
Between the Buried and Me
Carach Angren
Diablo Swing Orchestra
Shining (Norway)
Ihsahn
Casualties of Cool
Witherscape


Feel free to recommend me music of any of these genres:
Atmospheric Black Metal
Ambient Black Metal
Progressive Metal/Rock
Progressive Black Metal
Post Black Metal
Trip-Hop
Free Jazz
Classical
Neo/Dark Folk
Funeral Doom Metal
Unique Progressive Rock/Metal
Opera
Dark Cabaret
Ambient/Dark Ambient
Psytrance/Psybient
Medieval Folk/Instrumental Folk
Or just Dark and Twisted music with a sense of humor in general (a little bit of humor with the darkness makes it even better)
