@kyleforrester87 No worries dude, for some reason whenever I see Aphex Twin mentioned I always think of Windowlicker.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

Does anyone own anything from Ghostly International? Anything anyone would recommend?

Rather then run around like a mad woman during my lunch break like I usually do... Instead I just decided to chill

... By listening to Melodic Death Metal with a Viking slant about Loki, Ragnarok and his final battle with Heimdall

You guys... probably won't like it at all with your Jazz, and Electro and alternate music

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Love a bit of AA - they are pretty intense live!

Oh really @KALofKRYPTON? I can only imagine! I've not gone to a live gig since I was kid.

My dad was a Stage Tech and Roadie. I met a lot of people back then like Ozzy, King Diamond, Metallica, AC-DC and a bunch of others when my dad was in town.

Buuuuut I was between 0-5 years old so (I actually met Ozzy as a newborn more or less)... I don't actually remember and had no context behind it anyway back then 😅

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Yeah! Seen them a couple of times back when Wolves still had the Civic/Wulfrun Hall going strong. Saw them on their own tour and with Slayer and Mastodon before that. They're really tight live, like - Metallica tight!

That's cool getting to meet folk, even if you were too young to remember.

I miss the glory days of the Civic. Been to plenty of good (and bad) venues around the country, but the Civic pretty much tops (should say 'topped', its been closed for a couple of years now and the local council is bungling the awful sounding refurb 😢) them all apart from Brixton Academy - that place is golden!

Well I may not remember anything @KALofKRYPTON but I still have a bunch of my dad's stuff from being a stage tech/roadie

  • Five different stages passes (All with skull designs)
  • A Metallica crew/parking pass
  • A number of AC-DC dollars
  • A U2 Dollar
  • A bunch of plectrums (Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Kiss)

I did watch Metallica's 2014 glastonbury when it was aired on tv... Pretty sweet. I really should watch some more preformances if I can... or actually go to a gig...


Might as well reply to ya here @Ralizah from the games you've beat topic as I'm gonna go off on a tangent a bit

I do quite thrash metal.

As in the above and my previous post to Kal my dad was a big influence on my musical tastes. I was listening to the Big four of Thrash and plenty of other bands and genres since the age of ten or so. Only genres I don't really like are rap and what's now considered "pop"l

Whilst playing Jade Cocoon 2 I was listening to a playlist consisting of stuuf from Kill 'em All, Ride the lightning, Master of Puppets, The Black Album & Death Magnetic by Metallica amongst a few other bands

There's a few decent tracks from The Black Album with "My Friend of Misery" being a personal favourite. Enter Sandman's pretty decent too.

Haven't actually listened to any of Load, Reload or St Anger though (Well I've heard the track Frantic and it's alright) so I'm not much of a hipster lol

I find Death Magnetic is a great return to form though... Love that album.

I've heard VERY mixed to negative opinions on that album they did with Lou Reed..

Haven't actually kept up with my music for a number of years though... In fact my lastest Album was Amon Amarth's Deciever of the Gods (2013) bought back in 2014... 😂

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy Gig tat is possibly the best tat!

Regarding Metallica, I always feel that Load and ReLoad are very much 'you had to be there' kind of albums. It was 'new' Metallica - they'd honed a bit of an edge and it all felt very fresh. Combined with St. Anger - they're the albums that I largely ignore now. They have quite a few highlights - but I think that's more down to 14 year old me being the only metal fan I knew at school and having new Metallica stuff to wax lyrical about.

Wasn't fan of St. Anger at the time, the single was played pretty heavily on the pub/club scene at the time though - so you get it under your skin by osmosis.

I really didn't give Death Magnetic much of a try. Think I listened to it once. Same for Hardwired...

Haven't listened to Hardwired myself @KALofKRYPTON ... Cus I kinda didn't know about it... at all

The audio on Death Magnetic isn't great thanks to the mixing being done purposely just to be loud (didn't even know it was a thing but apparently there's an entire "loudness war" in the music industry) with distortions being fairly notable.

If I recall there was a Vinyl pressing recently with better audio quality. Also the Guitar Hero Metallica apparently had better audio quality too for some reason... There's probably stuff on youtube with those versions if that's part of the problem

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy DM was the first time I felt that they were a bunch of old chaps trying to recapture their youth (and audience). While I don't like St. Anger - it was at least a progression (not a great one and a total waste of one the greatest living lead guitarists there is).
Death Magnetic and even Hardwired have a flavour of Garage Inc. and Kill 'Em All that never really seems to sit quite right.

There's a clear trajectory of style and production technique over the span of Metallica's output up until Death Magnetic; where we're given the impression that these multi-millionaires are definitely just rock-bros recording in a garage somewhere

Well I'd rather have old guys trying to recapture their youth after trying out a few different sounds for a few years because they wanted to @KALofKRYPTON rather then Machine Head for example with their jump in the early 00's to go from Groove to Nu-Metal of all things just to try chase the latest trend

I do like Machine Head (Mainly the Blackening and Through the Ashes of Empires) but the Nu-Metal stuff was complete and utter waffle

@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy
Machine Head are one of those bands that managed to largely escape my notice.

Gene Clark - No Other is a great vinyl record, recently reissued, I quite like it. Progressive/psychedelic folk ensues once you stick it on the turn-table, I really like the fact that the songs are quite moving and emotive, which, coming from a borderline former metaller, is a powerful statement.

I also really like Kendrick Lamar, and a pantheon of jazz guitarists, I play the guitar myself so I quite like the fact that I can learn from these gods and geniuses. (Untitled Unmastered and To Pimp A Butterfly both have heavy jazz influences, and I would recommend them both to any fans of jazz and hip hop)
