  1. New Dark Tranquillity track

    Why don't you do a Spotify account I guess is my question. Haha. They're free. But you can pay for premium. I do but mainly for my family because you can split it with six people for $15/mo (or <$3 per person).
  2. The Mikael Akerfeldt Project continues its plummet into shitiness

    There's a couple good songs on here to be honest. But for the most part it's boring like their last two

    Why can't you do Spotify?

    Yeah me too haha. It's Opeth so I'm going to get it. Sigh. I hate myself.

  10. Disney confirms Star Wars anthology movie for 2020

    I don't want Boba Fett and Han Solo anthology films. I want new characters. Take a chance Disney. You can afford one bomb if it doesn't work out.

        I suppose I can't rebut any of your points because you didn't really contest mine. Just sort of gave me the why (which I already knew ) or your own personal preferences. I will address this though:   It goes with the whole idea of black metal, being raw and atmospheric. Yet, you can have some raw production and still sound awesome.   I agree and I thought your example for this point was great (which I discuss more below). However having raw production and sounding awesome (speaking purely about production) seems to be the exception and not the rule as that unicorn blend is a rare beast indeed. But these days you can have surprisingly good production on a shoestring budget. So to your point I would just say you can have some awesome production and still be raw and atmospheric, but without sounding like a microphone was placed in the middle of an empty airplane hangar while you played. For instance. There's not a single note lost in that droning cacophony.   I listened to everything you linked in this thread and here's my take on each:   Abbath - Leans more on the death metal end of the spectrum (minus the vocals, obviously). Good production, too. Thumbs up. Should be careful though because Gene Simmons just blew his load, which means he's getting ready to sue somebody.    Sigh - This should not have been used at all as an example of good production. Guitars with gain on eleven and mids scooped completely out that get totally lost when anything else is going at the same time. Meanwhile everything else is brought to the front end--and the vocals and other instruments on the front end are totally clear--but you just hear this fuzziness behind it all. I enjoyed the sinister feeling of the song though.   Ghost Bath - This was really good stuff. It's a wall of sound and the producer didn't scoop out the mids. So even though the guitar is just droning the same notes in sequence a lot of the time you can hear each note being played even though it was apparently recorded in the Grand Canyon.   Negura Baunget - There's some interesting stuff going on here for sure. I'd say about 1/4th of this song wants to be black metal. And in those parts, sadly, again: gains on 11, mids completely scooped with a resulting wall of indistinguishable fuzz.   Lightning Swords of Death - Fucking loved this. Half death, half black metal.   Blut Aus Nord - Oh man. I don't know where to begin with this one. I enjoyed a lot of the melodies and the song overall for sure. The guitar production was good, but I think it benefited from every other aspect of the production being so terrible. Everything that's wrong with ...And Justice for All plus everything non-guitar related with black metal production. Those sound like MIDI drums. MIDI! I know a lot of these artists record on a shoestring budget, but tell them to call me next time. I'll buy them a Superior Drummer 2.0 key to lay over it. I want a credit on the album though.   Triptykon - Familiar with them actually. I don't get the black metal connection though.   Until the Light Takes Us - Seen it. I believe I mentioned something about 4chan atheism already.  You should read "Lords of Chaos" or "Evolution of the Cult" (lots of great interviews in that one)   The other groups you mentioned (but didn't link ) - I enjoyed what SimpleG posted of Alcest a couple of weeks ago, but that's the only one I've listened to besides Triptykon. You gotta give links, man. Links to your suggestions so I can check out why you love it.
  12. Forza Horizon 3 PC Thread

      I've never played this game so I don't know why there's a drivatar there for me.
  13.   I know, right? But I never really believed he had brass balls/"principles" anyways. Playing the rogue was good for him. Now Donald Trump has taken that role and he has to pray, pay, and obey the party to keep his political career afloat.
  14. http://wapo.st/2czrrhw   He will be endorsing Mr. Trump. If he wasn't a slave to his party like he advertised then he'd endorse Johnson as their economic goals are similar. Donald Trump hops all over on social issues so you might as well go with Johnson on that too.
