So my sister just got back home from being in Las Vegas for the past 5 days. She saw Megadeth and Iron Maiden.
Apparently while Iron Maiden was playing some big dude out in the crowd was shoving around smaller dudes and chicks and in the middle of 2 Minutes To Midnight, Bruce stopped singing and yelled at the person in the crowd and the dude was kicked out. Theres a video of it on YouTube, you can watch it here.

Was that aimed at both Cooper and Manson or just Manson? Because I like Alice Cooper quite a bit.

Anyone familiar with the band Darkspace? I found them the other day and I like them quite a bit, which is odd because normally atmospheric black metal (save for Summoning and the like if you consider them atmospheric) put me to sleep. Wanted to know what NGers felt regarding them, if anything.

I got into them a few months back. It was their numerical approach to album/song titles that caught my attention initially. I don't often listen to this kind of music but every once in a while when I get the feeling for it, Darkspace is perfect, especially in the background while you're reading a good science fiction novel. I kinda wish their drums sounded a bit different but I can't really think of any sound that would work better.


It made more sense in my head.

There was this thread on General forum about music from the 90's, and I made a post in it. Thought I would share it here. It seems appropriate for this thread :)

We often forget the high importance of the 90's in the development and evolution of two very creative and prolific genres, black metal and death metal.

Black metal

The early classics of Darkthrone and Mayhem, which are both very important to the evolution of black metal, were released in the 90's. So were the best albums by both Gorgoroth and Immortal. The 90's also saw the black metal era Ulver release two very influent albums (Bergtatt and Nattens Madrigal). Borknagar, Primordial, Burzum, In The Woods... are all other bands who had an important influence over the genre.

Black metal is a genre that branched out toward other genres thanks to the work done by the artists of the 90's. It's a genre that managed to come in contact with industrial, ambient, avant-garde and even drone (with the excellent Sunn O))) album The Black One). This is how we ended up with legendary avant-garde black metal bands like Sigh, who made their way through countless musical genres to add more depth to their avant-garde black metal style. Bands like Emperor and Arcturus also managed to help push this genre in various directions.

Death metal

All the Death albums (except for two) were released in the 90's. We are talking about great albums like Symbolic and Human. Cryptopsy's two first albums (None So Vile and Blasphemy Made Flesh). Cannibal Corpse's first few albums, such as Tomb Of The Mutilated and Eaten Back To Life were very important for the transition from thrash metal to death metal. Demilich, Gorguts, Quo Vadis, Atheist are also important bands of the genre that produced great material in the 90's.

Death metal through the 90's also spawned new sub-genres and new genres. By essence, death metal was meant to explore more technical aspects of music, so was it meant to meet jazz one day. Some awesome bands like Cynic spawned in the 90's and gave use memorable and unique albums like Focus.

Windhand's new album Soma was just released today and since I get emails alerting me about this stuff from Relapse I decided to check out the link for the album on bandcamp. While checking out the tracks and all that I was actually really shocked to see the length of the final track. All together the album is 75 minutes long and the vast majority of that length is in the last 2 tracks. Track 6 (the last track) alone clocks in at 30:30.
You can listen to Soma in full here.

Here is a review of it thats on the bandcamp page:
Windhand's debut Relapse full length is nothing short of transcendent. On its surface it is a top 5 of all time doom record, but this record is for more than just doom-metal fanatics though. This is an epic record for all fans of guitar driven rock
and roll. On Soma Windhand successfully make syrupy slow, downtuned doom hooky and anthemic. Propelled by singer Dorthia Cottrell's beautifully haunting bellow, Windhand's duel guitar attack sounds like the glorious misfit offspring of Black Sabbath and Nirvana. An easy candidate for heavy music record of the year.

Apparently I left my email at their page at some point. I guess they're going to print a special edition of their new collection album and they're sending them out to the people who get the emails.

Eh, copy pasted form email minus links

(Please read this message to its very end!)

Dear you,

You may have heard the plans of Demilich's demo compilation have changed. If not, here are the announcements and pieces of info:

"From naivety to sheer intelligence.
From unimaginative to groundbreaking.
From amateurish to... well, less amateurish.
It will finally be available as one. Everything Demilich has ever recorded.
Demilich: 20th Adversary of Emptiness 3LP. Winter 2013."

"Let's make this official; The Demilich demo compilation will not only be a demo compilation, but will also include Nespithe. Everything we've recorded, from 1991 to 2006, in one package, with old and new artwork, available this year as a 3-LP and 2-CD. Both through Svart Records."

"The three vinyls included will be named this way: Nespithe; V34ish6ng 0f emptiness; Em9t2ness of van2s1ing."

"Dunno about the vinyl coloring, we'll be talking about that with Svart later."

"I thought the best way to get this all out is to release everything in the same package. I suppose including Nespithe doesn't add much price to it, and after all, it will be remastered (with good taste) from the original studio DAT, whereas every single Nespithe release before this has been done from the 16-bit CD version which was mastered in 1993."

"The packaging hasn't been set, yet. Most probably a box set, and possibly with Nespithe in its own jacket, and the other two in a gatefold jacket. Nespithe may have the original artwork. We'll let you know more when we know more."

...

Anyway, you once left your email address on our pages hoping to get a totally different product. There was supposed to be a demo compilation 2-LP, autographed, and limited to 397 copies. Well, things have changed.

However, we (Demilich+Svart) decided to ask if you'd still want a special edition. We would print and sell it ONLY to those who originally added their addresses on our web pages, and only to those who commit to buying it. The commitment won't be the kind of "you sign and you buy or Igor will chop your fingers off" commitment, but still, if you tell about your will to buy this one, we expect you to buy it. Otherwise we'll end up having lots of special edition sets to burn on a bonfire. Remember that this one will never be sold to anyone else but you who got this email. There will be anything from 500 to 1500 copies, but we expect it to be less than 1000.

We don't have facts about how the special edition will differ from the normal LP set. The price should be the same, or if it's notably more expensive to print, it'll only be slightly more expensive to you. We don't even know what the normal set will cost, so please don't ask. Just speculate, if that's what you like to do. Anyway, it'll be different, and will be a rarity. We'll most probably number it, and three original members of Demilich will autograph them all.

So, think about this for a moment. We'll collect the addresses for a couple of weeks and see if there's the demand. If not, there won't be any special edition.

If you think you want to commit to buying the thing, please head to the address below, and fill in the exact address that you originally gave (and which received this email.) That's all you have to do for now. We'll let you know more later.

Yours,
Antti Boman, the benign dictator of Demilich

So just out of sheer curiosity I went on Metal Archives and checked to see if "Post-Doom" is actually a thing.
It is.
But apparently this is the only band on the entire site that is categorized as "Post-Doom".

Bathory is awesome, even though, honestly, I think Quorthon sometimes may have messed up the vocals a tad, at least on Nordland.

Well, when you download from the Internet and then put stuff on music programs like iTunes, sometimes you'll have stuff written in the description, you'll have the genre classification that was given to the track by the user who made the album downloadable.

Yeah you have a point....I also have an Overkill live album thats labeled at "Blues" too, haha.
Although. My mom once had the soundtrack to the movie Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and it said a song was "Death Metal" and she ripped that right off the cd.
This song to be precise.
I never knew Donny Osmond was such a Brutal singer.

I decided to check out Deicide recently after hearing great things, but... I don't know. Their first album bored me honestly, and I'm not too eager to check out the rest. Thoughts on Deicide?

I haven't listened to a lot of their newer albums but I really like the debut, Legion, and Once upon the cross. Their first album is actually my favorite death metal album of all time.
