Portals Of Canaan

Tuesday, May 5, 2020
It’s no secret that over the past few years I have gravitated toward more brutal and technical death metal as my personal preference. This particular CD has been on my to get list for quite a while. I’d say maybe a couple of years but for some reason unknown to me I’ve waited til just now to get it and that was a huge mistake. Sure I streamed it on YouTube and liked it but I really want to have a physical copy of stuff I really do enjoy.

Virvum - Illuminance

Wednesday, Dec 11, 2019
Not to long ago, my thyroid medicine was off making me hypothyroid. That was fucking with my sleep schedule so I’d be dead tired all day then awake at night. I was listening to a lot of streamed music since I didn’t have my Fiio M11 yet and didn’t have a convenient way to listen to our ripped cds. I often found myself listening to Death N Brutality or Core Of Destruction before that one was taken away.

Discovering New Music

Wednesday, Mar 20, 2019
One of my favorite ways to discover new music now is to listen to something I like on YouTube then let it go to what ever is next. Sometimes something comes up that I like and sometimes it’s something I’ve not heard of before. For example I’ve recently discovered Delain and Epica this way. Apparently I’m on a symphonic metal kick now after a couple of years of mostly death metal.

Floor Jansen

A couple of weeks ago my girlfriend discovered Nightwish which I didn’t think she’s like be cause of Tarja’s opera singing. She generally dislikes female vocals. I liked them from what I downloaded way back in the early 2000s but never got around to actually picking anything up. Also around that time I discovered After forever and again didn’t have the funds to pick it up at that time. I really liked them both a lot from what I could hear in the shitty quality mp3s.

Gorguts - Obscura

Saturday, Jan 26, 2019
I shall reborn as a faceless one Darkly splendid world confinement in rapture I remembered hearing about Gorguts in the 90s. I probably heard them on the local college radio station that had some metal shows that play all sorts of stuff. Between that and Napster that’s how I discovered most of what I listen to now. In the Napster days I couldn’t get into death metal as much. It was more doom back then.

Lykathea Aflame - Elvenefris

Tuesday, Sep 25, 2018
Lykathea Aflame’s Elvenefris is one that I’ve read about and from the little bit I could check it out online I knew I had to eventually find it. Death metal isn’t all that popular and a lot of times it’s not easy to find. I guess the best way to put it would be to call it progressive brutal death metal.

Black Clouds And Silver Linings By Dream Theater

Monday, Apr 9, 2018
Recently on a whim I ordered Dream Theater’s Black Clouds And Silver Linings and couldn’t be happier with that decision to take a chance. I think it’s my favorite Dream Theater album of all. Due to various reasons for the past 10 years we haven’t been really keeping up with them or any other music for that matter. Some of their other recent albums I just couldn’t get into that much.

Acid Bath

She smiles like a child with flowers in her hair with blood on her hands Into the sun she stares Acid Bath might be one of my favorite bands of all time. Dax Rigg’s Darkness makes the music and I think the heavier music suits his voice better than the stuff that he does now. His more recent stuff is really good but I think Acid Bath is better for his voice.

Dystopia

Monday, Jan 15, 2018
Falling, falling from my oppression God where are you now Last year I rediscovered Dystopia. I’d heard stuff from Human=Garbage it on college radio stations back in the mid 90s but never picked up on who it was to search for it. (The internet makes finding stuff you hear so much easier these days) I recently heard it again on a streaming metal station online. It actually got me to hunt down a few other sludgy things I heard back then.
