A few things.

1) What did everyone get for Christmas this year? Anything interesting? This is what I got.
2) The Black Metal documentary "Out of the Black - A Black Metal Documentary" has been released via YouTube.
3) Christopher Lee is now apparently the oldest Heavy Metal performer in history at age 91. And now holds the record for being the oldest living performer to have a song enter the charts with the song Jingle

Lack of activity here is always appalling for me but I did get some good metal stuff for Christmas, especially the battle jacket that I got. Oh, and I got Agalloch's Marrow of the Spirit... twice. :P

Just saw Suffocation tonight. Met Frank Mullen & Terrance. Also bumped into Karl Sanders of Nile for some reason, he was there. Awesome night, Suffo is sick live.

This is what I got.

I forgot to ask you this when I responded in that thread.
Why did you get a Toblerone?
Everything seems okay (yes even the Reese's and the Darth Vader mints), but for some reason that just seems really...out of place.

Plus, I like Toblerone.
I hardly asked for anything this year (compared to my family and friends) so I assume they just picked up whatever they thought I might like.

Ah. Well then thats all good.

In total, I asked for about 7 or 8 things (the Darkthrone and Foo Fighters albums included)

I remember one year all I asked for (from non-immediate family for some Christmas party) was:
Gum, Uno cards, and an Ozzy Osbourne CD.
And I got all of them. I wanna say I got like 3 different Uno games and 10 packages of Hubba Bubba Bubblegum and my aunt and uncle got me an Ozzy Osbourne 2 disc greatest hits album. Though another aunt and uncle of mine got me a kazoo and a shirt. And I still have both.

Haha! Shit like that happens from time to time. Marrow of the Spirit is a great album. Do you have any other album by Agalloch?

I didn't give or receive much metal-related gifts, except for earings that look like deers to my girlfriend. She wears them with the Agalloch t-shirt I found her last year. That's pretty metal, right? :P Otherwise I've received a few rock albums, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, plus Wish You Were Here, and Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow's self-titled album.

Pretty nice :) I'd love to see Suffocation live. Plus you've got to meet pretty important musicians of the american death metal scene, which is great two! Happy for you :D

Yeah, I've got three of their albums. Only one I'm missing is Pale Folklore. I'm likely to pre-order their new album when we get close to the release date.

I got Dol Guldur for Christmas. Really liking it and I feel ashamed for leaving them out for so long. Hopefully I get myself to obtain more of their stuff sometime in 2014.

I think Lugburz is better than the rest of the stuff Summoning has done. The keyboards are kinda silly sometimes in their songs. Also, Richard Lederer from Summoning has a really good electro-industrial project called Ice Ages.

Pale Folklore is well worth it! I hope that you have listened to the whole thing even if you don't have the album. And I can't wait for the next album!

I've listened to Glowsun and Wiht and Black Math Horseman. But the latter has only been a few songs that you've posted in that Post Music, Rate Above thread. I'll be sure to check out the rest of those bands though.
Though I feel I need to ask. Do Keelhaul play Pirate themed music? I feel that with a name like Keelhaul they should.

I would say so since they did start Thrash Metal and then they just kinda lightened up. Also any recommendations? My Metal playlist is clogged up with too much Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, I need to broaden my Metal horizons.

Not really. Thrash goes all the way back to Queen and Black Sabbath.
Stone Cold Crazy for Queen (though not really "thrash" per se) and Symptom Of The Universe for Black Sabbath. The latter goes back almost an entire decade before Kill Em All was even released ._.

Also any recommendations? My Metal playlist is clogged up with too much Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, I need to broaden my Metal horizons.

Well that depends. What genres are you looking for?
Prog, Sludge, Stoner, Doom, Thrash, Folk, Death, etc?

Yes, thrash metal.

Well... it depends on what you like. Black, thrash, doom, prog, death, stoner, folk, avant-garde, sludge, power. Not to mention that all of theses genres have their own sub-genres...

Anything to guide us?

Thrash, Stoner, Avant-Garde, Sludge, and Power. Anything from those will do just fine.

Sense has mentionned a lot of avant-garde bands, and I will second him specificaly on Arcturus and Sigh, which are some of my favorite bands. Sigh is amazing! Try their albums Imaginary Sonicscape, Hangman's Hymn and maybe Hail Horror Hail. As for Arcturus, try The Sham Mirrors or La Masquerade Infernale. Both amazing albums.

As for thrash metal, I can't say I have a long list of recommandations. Morbid Saint and Kreator are always worth mentionning. But I also really like prog thrash such as Watchtower, and Symphony X has some thrash and power metal elements to their music. Good stuff. AniMetal would disagree with my genre classification for Meanstreak, I think he'd say they are more traditionnal metal than thrash, regardless, you should like Meanstreak!

Somewhere between thrash, stoner, sludge, doom, etc.... you have Leeches Of Lore. Amazing band! Along with Sigh, they are the band I've listenned to the most during the last year. Anything they've released is great.

As for sludge, Mastodon and Boris (on their albums Pink and Heavy Rocks) are both very good bands.

Yeah well, you're the sludge specialist here :P Your post also reminds me that I haven't found any Kylesa stuff to download or buy yet, which is a shame. Otherwise, Black Tusk are pretty cool. I saw them live and they delivered! They aren't really my style, I'll listen to them from time to time, but for someone who really enjoys that kind of music, they are very creative and they have a lot of personnality.
