i am in a relationship again with a girl who is everything i ever wanted ..and more...we hit it off from the start and no stopping now...yeah guys...i'm deeply in love and she feels the same. crazy i know but hell..it works.
her name is Gillian, from London...and she is crazy about me.
here is the crazy part..guys...she is 20...she loves me as me and prefers older men.
found each other and found we were looking for each other..crazy as it sounds.
she has made me the happiest man in the world..and she loves me as much.

I still regret not buying anything at the Hell/Primordial show but they had it going beyond 11PM and the last train to get back to Liverpool was at 11:30 so the last two songs of the show had to be missed out and I wasn't willing to carry the merch around in the crowd throughout the show.

Anyway. Even if you managed to find their new EP. I wouldn't recommand it. At least not as one of the first releases you should check out by them. While it really retains Agalloch's uniqueness, it isn't their best by any means. On their full lenght albums they really display how much song-writting and playing skills they have.

Studio albums get priority over EP anyway but I'm still considering looking into the latest EP after I'm sorted with the studio albums.

I've listenned to that album so much... If you are not in love with it after the first two songs, I'll be fuckin' surprised !

I am digging the last three songs from The Mantle quite a bit. Is this a good sign from me? I'll admit, the voice clips at the end of The Hawthorne Passage irk me a bit but the rest of the track won't be ignored over that.

Missing the end of a show is always a sad thing... And I also hate to carry merchs during a whole show. Agalloch's show including Taurus and Musk Ox's sets lasted for something like 4 hours. I would have hated holding a fuckin' cd for the whole gig.

Well, I was talking about Ashes Against The Grain, but whatever :P

...and the Great Cold Death of the Earth used to be my favorite track from The Mantle. I think In the Shadow of Our Pale Companion is my favorite now. But yup, the last three songs are definitely great

Iron Maiden comes to the Shoreline on friday. Totally looking forward to it, and totally looking forward to hearing Maiden songs live that they don't normally play live.

Also, my new girlfriend, Melissa, is considering getting a full size bass amplifier. She wants to be part of the future Psycryptik lineup, doing bass and female singing, which means I now only need a guitarist for a live show, since I will do guitar and vocals, and my friend D-Rod will be the sound engineer (I use a lot of programmed synths and I use programmed drums, so I need a sound guy who knows my stuff to accompany me.) Looking forward to doing shows in the future, and I think I know a guitarist who would love to join.

If I ever do a show under the Psycryptik moniker, I'll let you guys know and have someone record a bootleg so I can post it.

In the Shadow of Our Pale Companion is the longest from the lot but even with that, it's still a strong track. I like how there's four instrumentals from this album and The Hawthorne Passage is finding a lot of love from myself right now.

So you have checked out Ashes Against The Grain, but you just like The Mantle better. I'm not really suprised actually. This whole album has a Bahamut aura :P

Not a big fan of Mercyful Fate. But I loved a girl named Melissa. I like the name two :)

Anyone who likes Mercyful Fate is okay in my book.

Weird thing is I was for the past like...month or so trying to go out with this girl I know, and her name is also Melissa ._.
She ended up turning me down, but we're still good friends.

She's trying to get me a job at this local music store in Marin. She knows the owner. I love working with guitars, and I want to get another fender (or fender-like) guitar as my next purchase, so this should go over quite well.

Oh no, I haven't even jumped that far yet but I will want to check out Ashes Against the Grain sooner than later. On the other hand, it's a good idea to embrace The Mantle as much as possible before moving on.

Sounds like a good job. I was interested in trying to get a job at this music store thats about a half hour drive from here.
As for me im holding off on buying any more guitars or guitar related things. I feel as though i have enough at the moment.

I have 4 electrics and an acoustic that was converted into an acoustic/electric by the dude that owned it before me.
In total ive had...I wanna say 8 guitars. ESP LTD Viper 50, my acoustic electric, BC Rich Bich, some crappy strat copy, Epiphone SG, Epiphone Les Paul, Hamer Explorer, and a Gibson SG. I no longer have the last three. The LP was destroyed, I gave the Explorer back to the person I got it from, and I sold the Gibson.

By the looks of this playlist Roadburn is like the best festival besides Hellfest? I wish I lived in Tampa, they had that free death metal concert and Sleep played... I want to see Sleep and Om so bad.

Oh definitely. But a fun thing you could have did would have been to start with their very first album and followed their discography in chronological order to get the best feeling of their evolution. But since all their albums are great, it really doesn't matter. I'm happy you are enjoying The Mantle so far. Tell me when you get any other of their releases so we can discuss it :)

Exactly the same as in Montreal. But you guys didn't see them play In The Shadow of Our Pale Companion with Nathanael Larochette from Musk Ox.

I can't help but think that Agalloch should play some of their Drone stuff live. I don't know if it was the same at your show, but Taurus didn't get a very good reception from the crowd in Montreal. There was a few people who liked it a lot, or found it interresting, like I did. But I heard negative opinions on their set... and I can't help but feel that a lot of Agalloch fans are dumb and only like them for very superficial reasons.

I see two kinds of Agalloch fans. The one who are deeply in love with the way they master over 10 different genres and manage to mix elements from all the genres in a perfect blend... and there are the melo-kids who like them because they are melodic, sometimes smoother and relaxing but heavy. The melo-kids do not understand how important drone is in Agalloch's sound. It may not be obvious to them, but Drone is all about heavyness, sound experimentation, atmosphere and build-ups. I was disapointed by the fan's reaction to Taurus, because it shows how little they understand about Agalloch's music...

I've done that particular order with King Crimson. Well, up until Larks' Tongues in Aspic since I really wanted to get Red. Not to worry, I will eventually get Starless and Bible Black from them. It just helps doing that with King Crimson since you will most likely be exposed to the debut album at first and then you'll want to hear In the Wake of Poseidon for more Greg Lake. Maybe afterwards you'll then check out Lizard to see how they managed without him and I tell you, the band lived strong even from there. I don't know how much King Crimson you know but if you've yet to hear Cirkus, then you'll soon find out more from them beyond the debut album.

As for Agalloch, considering their small discography, it would have been easy to start from the beginning. However, would the debut album be the best Agalloch gateway album? I was familiar with A Desolation Song a few years back, actually so after hearing it online recently again, I knew The Mantle was the best option.

Whoa. That's pretty mindblowing. Is there stuff any good besides the fact that their cover is identical (and predating) to Morbid Angel's Blessed Are the Sick?

So how is everyone's year of metal going? So far, my favorites I've heard this year are:
High on Fire's De Vermis Mysteriis
Kreator's Phantom Antichrist
Meshuggah's Koloss
Primal Fear's Unbreakable
Sigh's In Somniphobia
Vintersorg's Orkan (Might be my album of the year [at least right now])

I'm looking forward to hearing Testament's new album, Time, Voivod's new one, Ensiferum's new one, Ex Deo's Caligula, Ghost's new album, and Darkane's rumored new album. I still need to pick up Gojira's new one, have heard good things about it.

As much as I hate to say it I haven't gotten around to listening to much new metal so far this year. Pretty much all ive listened to was: De Vermis Mysteriis, a few songs off of Testament's new album, a few songs from Gojira's new album, Yellow & Green (found out there was something up with the shipping so my copy wont be arriving for a bit), and various tid bits of other albums. All in all im ashamed of myself for not listening to more stuff xD
Hell I got fucking...Jack White's new album, but hes the furthest thing from metal.

Ghost's new album

Ghost is bringing out a new album? That either totally went under the radar for me or my memory is going and i completely forgot about it.

The one song I heard was alright.

It's not been so good for me this year but I'm hoping this month is where it takes a huge turn. Otherwise this year has been a real disappointment but so has 2012 as a whole.

She, her brother, my friend JD, and I are going to see Iron Maiden tonight. Looking forward to that. As well, both her family likes me and my family likes her. I've never been happier with a woman before.

I've just discovered how funny Ozzy is in the Osbournes.

Late.

Oh, and this isn't metal related, but it's good news nonetheless. I got a job yesterday being a marketing consultant for a grassroots marketing firm. I earn 17.33 an hour plus commission. I get paid to talk. I love life right now. I think I'm gonna buy a new stack and a fender to go with it. Yahoo people.

Oh, and the name of the firm is D.J. Ent, inc. For those who don't see the humor in that, Djent is a style of metal/hardcore akin to Meshuggah. I'm pretty sure they don't realize the accidental reference, but it's a little laugh I keep to myself.

Got back from Iron Maiden early this morning. The opening band sucked (Coheed and Cambria) and were a bunch of overweight scenefags. The C&C fans looked like a bunch of faggery daggery doo scene idiots.

But Iron Maiden slaughtered everything. We got not one, but TWO eddies (One was from The Trooper, the other was from the cover of Seventh Son with an animatronic baby inside the embryo) and they played a 2.5 hour set.

Picked up a total of 25 vinyls today. Each of them were $1 so i ended up spending $25 today. Granted only a few of them are "metal" I'm still happy with what I got.
I got: ZZ Top - Eliminator, Van Halen - 1984, The Beatles - Abbey Road, Rubber Soul, and Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, Steppenwolf - Born To Be Wild, Don McLean - American Pie, Crosby Stills Nash and Young - Deja Vu, Led Zeppelin - Coda, 2 Ringo Starr albums, Yes - Yessongs, John Lennon - Rock N Roll, 2 Beach Boys, 2 Herman's Hermits, Eagles - Hotel California, some album by the Jackson 5, and what I thought was Cream Disraeli Gears but it didn't have the right vinyl in it. The other 5 vinyls were 45 rpms and I don't feel like going to get them at the moment...

It just helps doing that with King Crimson since you will most likely be exposed to the debut album at first and then you'll want to hear In the Wake of Poseidon for more Greg Lake.

I don't know how much King Crimson you know but if you've yet to hear Cirkus, then you'll soon find out more from them beyond the debut album.

Only King Crimson album I have right now is In the Wake of Poseidon, which is a Greg Lake album. And honestly, the first reason why I looked into King Crimson was because of Tony Levin. That just tells you how lost I got :P I still haven't heard anything by Levin with King Crimson, yet I really like In the Wake of Poseidon.

As for Agalloch, considering their small discography, it would have been easy to start from the beginning. However, would the debut album be the best Agalloch gateway album? I was familiar with A Desolation Song a few years back, actually so after hearing it online recently again, I knew The Mantle was the best option.

The only album by Agalloch I could ever consider as "less accessible" would be Marrow Of The Spirit, because of the more agressive elements of black metal they have added to their music and the quality of the sound production. Pale Folklore while it mixes black metal and folk metal, isn't like Marrow Of The Spirit. I often compare Pale Folklore to the first Ulver's album, Bergtatt. I have said before that only Agalloch managed to do something in the vein of Ulver's very first album. It would have been, like all Agalloch's albums, a good place to start. But The Mantle isn't a worst choice by any means.

High on Fire's De Vermis Mysteriis
Kreator's Phantom Antichrist
Meshuggah's Koloss
Primal Fear's Unbreakable
Sigh's In Somniphobia
Vintersorg's Orkan (Might be my album of the year [at least right now])

I only picked up three albums from 2012 so far :

Abigail Williams - Becoming
Alcest - Les Voyages de l'Ã'me
Agalloch - Faustian Echoes

Next album I'm going to pick up will be by an artist who's name will start with the letter b, I swear :P. Abigail Williams and Agalloch's albums are both very good, while Alcest's album is somewhere between decent and good. I like some songs, but it's generaly not as good as Souvenirs d'un autre monde was.

Maiden aren't the best when it comes to choice of support acts. However, I expected America to get better support acts than we get. What did we have for The Final Frontier tour? Airbourne with one show with DragonForce and Trivium each. Yeah, not a good range there.

But Iron Maiden slaughtered everything. We got not one, but TWO eddies (One was from The Trooper, the other was from the cover of Seventh Son with an animatronic baby inside the embryo) and they played a 2.5 hour set.

Holy shit! Typically you'd only see one Eddie so your show got really spoiled.

You still have a lot of amazing works to check out from them. Then again, so do I as I have six of their albums and should get the rest.

I did try Marrow of the Spirit ages ago but found it to be a bit of a heavy listening. I'll eventually pick it up again but maybe at the time I wasn't in the right mood to listen to it.
