WIMPS AND POSERS, LEAVE THE HALL

This is the kind of new beginning I can get behind.

Very happy to not open this thread to that ugly Yatra cover (or any record cover). I couldn’t hit ‘jump to most recent message’ enough.

Yelploaf, Wednesday, 1 January 2020 22:52 (four weeks ago) link

Anyone here up on the Kolkata scene? The last metal release I got in ‘19 was the Brahmastrika tape. It’s maybe more noise than metal but there’s some kind of scene or collective going on there centered around Tetragrammacide.

As in years past, I think it's gonna be up to me to pollute this thread with knuckle-dragging bullshit. Here's "Ex Inferis," a track from Phoenix, AZ blackened death metal act Deadspawn's independently released debut album Pestilence Reborn, which comes out this week.

"Third of the Storms" Jazz (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Monday, 6 January 2020 13:52 (three weeks ago) link

Recent current events had me reminiscing about 80s and 90s anti-war metal songs. I started putting together a playlist and am looking for suggestions. I have obvious stuff like War Ensemble, Mandatory Suicide, Disposable Heroes, War Pigs, The Trooper, Refuse/Resist (kinda?), World War Whatever (by dead horse - a personal favorite)... I could probably Google for more, but thought it might be more fun to solicit favorites from Rolling Metal.

Vio-Lence: sound was abysmal but i still enjoyed it

Exodus: fantastic. Since they're doing Bonded in its entirety in two days they focused on later material and it was great

Devin Townsend: in awe. He was amazing. He also played "All Hail the New Flesh" and "Detox"!

Emperor: outright life changing. I cried.

Like the tide, shadows flow towards the shore of light.
The night comes whirling like a maelstrom.
Warring waves of crackling clouds embrace this nightside landscape.
The heavens bleed, through open wounds, the dim light of the Moon.
The winds are crying mournfully and tears fly with the gusts.
They whip my clenched faces freezing skin with ice-cold burning cuts.

Not Frank sadly. Ricky Myers.

I was hoping the cruise would entice Frank, esp since he's doing a few shows in Czechoslovakia this year

The forthcoming album by Japanese slam/death act Gorevent is doomier than their previous work; it reminded me of Coffins, so now I'm on a major Coffins kick. Buried Death is such a disgustingly awesome record.

Day 2

Possessed - I had no idea Jeff Becerra is paralyzed. He gave every ounce of energy out there and constantly kept saying how awesome it was to be there. At one point there was a fan in the crowd in a wheelchair and everybody lifted him up in his chair so that he could lock eyes with Jeff. Amazing moment. Great set.

Suffocation - the loudest I've ever heard them. I was pretty drunk and they ended with "Infecting the Crypts", my fav Suffo tune. Amazing.

Carach Angren - boring. Left one song in.

Candlemass - good set, though lots of expected Doomicus songs omitted, except "Solitude". Be interesting to see if they pull them out during next set.

Venom - again, loudest I've heard them. Cronos was in a good mood for once. "Warheads" always gets me.

I was too tired to do any more

"Detox" is the song that helped me realize I wasn't alone. 19 year old me cried and threw fists

papa stank (Neanderthal), Friday, 10 January 2020 02:27 (two weeks ago) link

Day 3: Shore day

We went to Cozumel. It's very...touristy. all I did was drink.

Only a half day of shows but a great crop.

Flotsam and Jetsam: so glad i caught them. They mixed some of their last two albs in with Doomsday and No Place for Disgrace songs. Amazing set.

Atheist: about as good as the Orlando set in November. Very Piece of Time and Unquestionable Presence heavy.

Devin Townsend: the wind had gotten out of hand. Ihsahn's solo set was stopped three songs in. There were doubts Devy would get to play. But he persevered. He was very jocular as the wind kept fuckin' with his click track computer. He talked to ne at one point. He was chugging water and I screamed "Drink that fuckin' water!" and he said "I'M DRINKING IT, I'M DRINKING IT!". Setlist was much the same, but it was so communal and awesome. Lots of people hugging. Highlight for sure. Can't wait to hear more varied material in March!

At the Gates: The weather became untenable. Banners started to tumble from the rafters. We were evacuated to inside. The set was delayed an hour, til about 1:30 am. They broke into their Slaughter of the Soul set and it was just beautiful. Tomas was so excited up there. Wonderful set,band I caught an At the Gates pick.

After three days of getting blitzed, I am digging deep today. Orphaned Land into Suffocation up next.

papa stank (Neanderthal), Friday, 10 January 2020 17:20 (two weeks ago) link

Day 4

Fatigue was starting to set in. Fighting a third straight hangover, I decided the only way I would wake up a little is to....drink heavily again. More on that.

Skipped the rest of Orphaned Land after a few songs. I like them, but they were gravitating towards material I was less favorable of.

Archon Angel: Wasn't intending to see them, I was on my way to breakfast. Fronted by Zak Stevens, ex-Savatage vocalist (1993 - 2001). I came up as they were ripping through a cover of Savatage's "Power of the Night", and stayed to the end as they played two songs from Edge of Thorns, which brought me back to age 17, when I first discovered that album.

Suffocation: I was pretty toasted by this point, and this time, the sound was perfect. Switched up the setlist and gave us "Jesus Wept" this time. Absolute cracker of a set.

Brujeria: By some miracle, I missed only two minutes of this set. These guys are such incredible fun live. I moshed briefly with a guy who was dressed up as a banana as well as people dressed as sharks (it was costume day). Of course they ended with "Marijuana".

I headed to see Possessed again and on the way, actually ran into Zak Stevens, and took a pic with him. And then heard the news that Neal Peart died.

Possessed: The news about Neal Peart somewhat overshadowed the set, as my excitement as largely gone after such fucked news. It was an enjoyable set, but not quite as much fun as the one from Day 2. Too many Eyes of Horror songs, and honestly, I was just bummed out.

Soilwork: Sat on a lawn chair and fell asleep for the entire set. It was at this point that I realized I needed to stop drinking for the day, as my energy was gone. Just ate dinner and drank tons of water.

Candlemass: Now THIS was awesome. Kept dozing now and then, due to fatigue, but this was a Doomicus heavy set, with "Crystal Ball", "Under the Oak", and "Demon's Gate" all getting played, in addition to "Solitude". Johan Längqvist sounded phenomenal!

At this point, I could only bring myself to see two more sets, as I was gassed.

Emperor: Not quite as awe-inducing as first show, mostly because you never beat your first, but a phenomenal set regardless. Setlist somewhat changed up, with "Curse Ye All Men!" and "Majesty of the Nightsky" thrown in. It was on the pool deck in front of a fierce windstorm, which felt appropriate. At the end of the set, "My Heart Will Go On" played over the loudspeakers as the band took selfies in front of the stage.

Exodus: Now this was cool. Bonded by Blood front to back Souza's microphone was extra-layered with reverb this night to approximate Baloff sound, and everything was played at a much higher speed than on disc. I was started to get aggravated by Exodus fans rudely elbowing and shoving people and could tell my transition back to an old man yelling at a cloud was complete. one more Toxic Waltz ended things, with the band jokingly covering verse 1 of "Hair of the Dog" by Nazareth first.

amazing experience. I was sated. Exhausted now and recharging.

the new Rage album is fun.

metalhammer gave her the chance to walk that shit back and she completely ducked the question:

q: When you said you felt that Islam was ‘invading’ Europe, what were you trying to say? Many Muslims have grown up in and contributed positively to societies across Europe.

a: “Many Muslims have grown up in and contributed positively to societies across Europe; I agree. In Europe we have freedom to choose religion and you do not get persecuted for having the wrong religion, so of course it’s open to all and should remain that way.”

VERY hard swerve from the style of the first track to the second -- the latter is melodic goth-metal & barely metal at all for half of it, really, but I'm into the guitarwork enough to just go along for the ride -- great tone, great direction
