WOO!!! *high five*
I don't know how I hadn't heard them before I did. But I'm loving all they have out at the moment.
And they got signed to Nuclear Blast not too long ago and are releasing an EP on September 7th :3

Still their best album to date, and they recorded this when they were teenagers.

Yeah, it's quite impressive, and I agree about it being their best. I listened to some songs from Nihility and The Negation and didn't think as highly of them.

Unholy Cadaver is a rare exception for me as that was international only. Thankfully I got it from Germany so it's not as bad as American shipping fees.
Well you can pretty much not find ANY Electric Wizard stuff around here. I was lucky enough to get Witchcult Today when I did because there was only one copy of it. Black Masses was easier because it was still sorta "new" when I got it. I still need to get money sent to get my copy of Legalize Drugs & Murder. Counting shipping it was only like $15.

I don't even check the vinyls HMV have since chances are they'll do a worse job than CDs but a vinyl album for £25 is more justifiable than a £15 CD. Although, with buying so little of vinyls I'm not used to their general prices. Maybe £25 is more for double albums which is easily agreeable.

So it would be an extremely rare care. I wouldn't worry about it at all.
Yeah. And you'd only have to worry about something being faked on vinyl if the vinyl they're duplicating is worth a lot, and if they can make up the cost of supplies with what they're selling.

And they would only try and undercut sales from others so it wouldn't be worth it in the slightest. Google gives me some interesting results on how to copy vinyls but it sounds like a very long process and you better make sure you have the appropriate kits.

10 would be along the lines of getting Slough Feg's album (CD - not the vinyl re-issue from this year) on eBay. I'd probably say 7 and that's if you're willing to shell out a bit of money for one CD.
Ah that reminds me. I was looking around on eBay and I found a copy of Slough Feg for $100...not even entirely sure why I was looking for it when I was. I was looking at Orange Goblin and Sleep stuff....

They can slip in unrelated artists to boost views. It's fine if the artists have strong similarities to them but I see no relation to Sleep and Slough Feg.

I thought later 2012 would pick up but apart from an album or two, it still feels awfully underwhelming. Hopefully 2013 has a lot to offer. I wonder what the hell happened to the greatness of 2011.
Yeah it seemed as though a lot of the good albums from this year were released in the first half of this year. I mean yeah there were some good albums that came out recently. But I felt there should have been more. In the mean time we'll have to bide our time to see what else is getting released then. I mean Soundgarden is apparently releasing their new album King Animal in November so im looking forward to that. And Alice In Chains were supposed to be releasing a new album this year but I don't know what happened with that.

When I consider very few releases left from this year that I'm looking forward and most of the records this year ranged from meh to good but not amazing. However, the one album I do find truly amazing from this year is Dawnbringer's Into the Lair of the Sun God.

Well I've looked through damn near all the vinyls at places around here that sell em. So I have a good idea as to what I can find if im looking for something. Granted I DO still find an okay amount of stuff I haven't seen before. Like up until when I got my copy of Holy Mountain I hadn't seen a copy of Rainbow Bridge by Jimi Hendrix on vinyl, and the place had like 4 copies of it.

And they would only try and undercut sales from others so it wouldn't be worth it in the slightest. Google gives me some interesting results on how to copy vinyls but it sounds like a very long process and you better make sure you have the appropriate kits.

Well all I can say is if something looks "too good to be true" chances are it is. So if anyone goes out looking for vinyls or cds or really anything make sure you know what you're looking for and make sure to look for things that would let you know you're not getting the real thing.

Yeah I know it's weird. Kinda like when I saw stuff for The Beatles while I was looking for stuff by I think it was either QOTSA or something like that. I can't remember....

Id say that even though there were some good releases this year a bunch of em were hit and miss. Granted out of the stuff released I only bought (both metal and non-metal): De Vermis Mysteriis, Yellow & Green, A Different Kind Of Truth, Blunderbuss, the reissue of Dopesmoker from Southern Lord, and my Witchcult Today is a reissue from Metal Blade. But for Witchcult its just got the normal cover art and not the one with the black background and stuff.
All I know is I need to go pick up some more stuff before the year is done. Ya know like Eulogy For The Damned by Orange Goblin, Angels Of Darkness Demons Of Light II by Earth, Relapse by Ministry, Umskiptar by Burzum, L'Enfant Sauvage by Gojira, and Manala by Korpiklaani for stuff thats already been released.
As for stuff being released later this year I want to try to get at least one or two of the following
Legend by Witchcraft, RIITIIR by Enslaved, maybe Time I by Wintersun, and Apocryphon by The Sword. If anything else comes up out of the blue that I'd be interested in I guess I'll try to get that too.

Well, you showed me some bands back in '07 that are still my favorites, like Arcturus, Ulver, and Solefald.

Speaking of which, check your PM's.

I haven't checked out what you mentioned yet, but I will.

But for Witchcult its just got the normal cover art and not the one with the black background and stuff.

I've bought around 30 releases from this year and this is what I feel mostly sticks out:

Baroness - Yellow & Green (particularly Yellow, not so much for Green)
Dawnbringer - Into the Lair of the Sun God
DragonForce - The Power Within (I must be crazy to even mention them)
Grand Magus - The Hunt
Hellwell - Beyond the Boundaries of Sin (but maybe I'm a little too Manilla Road obsessed so that's why this gets a pass so easily)
Kreator - Phantom Antichrist
Rush - Clockwork Angels
Sonata Arctica - Stones Grow Her Name
Sigh - In Somniphobia
Storm Corrosion - S/T

I guess it's not as bad as I thought but more great relases that we WILL remember would help.

Hmm I've never seen anything by Possessed around here. I guess its no surprise since (not even joking) I can't even find ...And Justice For All (which is in my opinion Metallica's last decentish album because the Black Album is an overrated a pile of crap) around here. Which is weird considering I have found my fair share of rare or rareish albums here....

I wonder this all the time. If you have an album thats really desirable why not at least putting it back in print for at least a bit to get more money on their end?

Baroness - Yellow & Green (particularly Yellow, not so much for Green)

I actually completely agree with you on that. Although Green does have a few okay songs (Green Theme, Collapse, The Line Between)

DragonForce - The Power Within (I must be crazy to even mention them)

I kept seeing stuff for that and as im not the biggest Dragonforce fan I didn't feel like getting it.

Rush - Clockwork Angels

I wanted to get that but for some reason I never got around to it...

Hmm...did you get around to listening to Lillie: F-65? It's not my favorite Saint Vitus album but its still not all bad. Granted my favorite is probably either Born Too Late or V.

If you can't even find a Metallica album around here (just vinyl or not finding it at all), then the whole area is in trouble. As for black album, I like it but it's certainly the weakest out of the first five albums. I feel they trapped themselves with filler for the last 3-4 songs but the rest I can still dig.

This is what concerns me when finding rare albums but really, if the record label themselves want money, how about putting the albums back in print?
I wonder this all the time. If you have an album thats really desirable why not at least putting it back in print for at least a bit to get more money on their end?

And this is where I respect Manilla Road. Although it's not instant, at least some labels are working on re-releasing all their albums because they know how hard it is to get some of their albums. They still need to re-issue Metal, Mystification and Out of the Abyss but I'm sure that's being considered. Re-issuing The Deluge last year was a blessing since beforehand the CD was going for £90. There's been stories of people spending as much as $1,000 for Mark of the Beast due to its extreme rarity at one point.

Baroness - Yellow & Green (particularly Yellow, not so much for Green)
I actually completely agree with you on that. Although Green does have a few okay songs (Green Theme, Collapse, The Line Between)

There are some ok songs from Green but compared to Yellow, it's really lacking.

DragonForce - The Power Within (I must be crazy to even mention them)
I kept seeing stuff for that and as im not the biggest Dragonforce fan I didn't feel like getting it.

I blame you. DragonForce have had a bad reputation for a long time now. I was ready to write them off with this album for doing the same shit but then I heard Cry Thunder and thought, "Hey, they actually improved."

Hmm...did you get around to listening to Lillie: F-65? It's not my favorite Saint Vitus album but its still not all bad. Granted my favorite is probably either Born Too Late or V.

Yeah, Lillie: F-65 isn't so memorable in comparison to Born Too Late. Lackluster albums like that make me feel this year has gone slow for metal.

I mean there isn't a lack of Metallica around here...its just all you can really find are Master Of Puppet and the black album to Death Magnetic. I had a hell of a time getting Ride The Lightning and Kill Em All. For The Black Album id say theres only maybe 2 or 3 songs I am okay with on there.

$1000! Holy shit dude...I don't think id ever go out of my way to spend that much of an album. Unless I had the kind of income where that would be nothing to me. I think the most I've ever spent on something music wise was maybe $30-$40

DragonForce - The Power Within (I must be crazy to even mention them)

Well its mostly because I hear almost nothing but bad things when it comes to Dragonforce. So its kinda made me not want to get into em too much. I mean don't get me wrong they have some okay songs, but everything else seems to be like "hey lets see how fast we can play" thing.
Although I am liking that song.

Well at least they had Wino back for that album...I can't really explain why but I did not like C.O.D. or Die Healing...
Although I DID like Saint Vitus and Hallow's Victim

I've listened to Ensiferum's Unsung Heroes and one thing I can confirm is that it does not top From Afar. I knew it would be too difficult of a task to do but the new album is still great. Definitely liking the last track the most for taking all sorts of directions. Easily the most unpredictable song out of the lot, especially when I was expecting a Heathen Throne vibe. Nothing like that here.

Damn, the first four should be the easiest to find just because they're the best. :P And to think last time I went to London HMV I got one guy to pick up ALL FOUR Metallica classics. He only wanted to check out Kill 'Em All but ended up getting Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets and ...And Justice for All at once. Those 2 for 10 pound offers really do the trick.

Yeah, I have my limits with what I spend. I even think 20 for Headless Cross is a bit too much. It's Black Sabbath so I should be more desperate but not like how I was with most Manilla Road albums. Most costed me 15.

I blame you.

Whoa whoa whoa, did I actually say that? I obviously meant I DON'T blame you.

Just stick with Valley of the Damned and the last album and you should be safe. Not saying the latest one is a masterpiece but it's putting them in the right direction.

To tell you the truth, I don't have all the Saint Vitus albums so that's something I need to work on but right now, I would like to get more Agalloch.

Knew you would. ;)

As well, the programmed tracks for the upcoming "Infected Nuclear Bioromance" (my new demo) have been finished, and all that's left is to go into the studio and record the rest of the tracks and have it mixed.

Tracklisting is:

1. Greed
2. Impulse to Kill
3. From the Grave (Rerecorded)
4. Infected Nuclear Bioromance
5. God of Time
6. Perfect Soul (ephemeral thy flesh)
7. I Walk Beside You (Dream Theater cover)

I was seriously expecting to find AJFA quite easily but it seems like no one around here is selling them. Or if I go to a store that says they have it in stock there aren't any copies of it.

I seriously need to find somewhere around here that sells Electric Wizard albums or else its gonna cost me an arm and a leg just to get 2 or 3 more albums of theirs...I also need to get Sleep Vol. 1 or Vol. 2 because I want to have an at least completeish collection of their stuff.

I blame you.
Whoa whoa whoa, did I actually say that? I obviously meant I DON'T blame you.

You mean spirited individual :(

Just stick with Valley of the Damned and the last album and you should be safe. Not saying the latest one is a masterpiece but it's putting them in the right direction.

I guess I'll go looking for that too when I go out album hunting/buying.
Granted I already have a pretty long list of things I want to get that I either already have on my computer but want a physical copy of or stuff I've been meaning to pick up but for some reason have put off doing so.

To tell you the truth, I don't have all the Saint Vitus albums so that's something I need to work on but right now, I would like to get more Agalloch.

Ah okay. Well I went through and downloaded all of the songs off of all of their albums one by one off of youtube using this youtube to mp3 converter I have on my computer. It took forever but it was worth it in the end.

Times like this I have to take my local shops for granted. Infact, I was able to pick up Deep Purple's Burn and Rush's Grace Under Pressure... again. Why again for the latter is that I did buy it along with some Father's Day stuff but then I left the bag somewhere and never saw it again.

It's funny, I have a long list of stuff to get but I'm actually reluctant to get most of it right now. I kinda feel like I want the albums but when I hear them I only get bored of them. Then again, it really doesn't help when I have a list of 1,000+ CDs that I may get sometime and that's why I always try to prioritise the more essential works. That or if I come across some sweet deals for albums. If I see something that's supposedly good for £3, you can be sure I'll swipe it.

To tell you the truth, I don't have all the Saint Vitus albums so that's something I need to work on but right now, I would like to get more Agalloch.
Ah okay. Well I went through and downloaded all of the songs off of all of their albums one by one off of youtube using this youtube to mp3 converter I have on my computer. It took forever but it was worth it in the end.

Eh, YouTube converter isn't the best of things. The quality of the songs will be low but I suppose that's a way to encourage you to get the real thing.

I try to not buy stuff online unless I have literally no other way to get what I was wanting to buy. Like what im in the middle of doing now. I'm about to leave to mail off payment for the Legalize Drugs & Murder 7" I bought. I seriously hope it doesn't get damaged while its being shipped....

Times like this I have to take my local shops for granted. Infact, I was able to pick up Deep Purple's Burn and Rush's Grace Under Pressure... again. Why again for the latter is that I did buy it along with some Father's Day stuff but then I left the bag somewhere and never saw it again.

Hmm...I haven't seen any copies of Burn or Grace Under Pressure...

Well I might be going to a few music stores and see if they have anything i want later today. So im going to write down any albums im looking for that are high on my list for things I want to buy to see if they have em. Hell the store had fucking Holy Mountain there and I was looking for that for a long ass time. Its the original one from 93 too :P but the only thing I don't like about it is it doesn't come with Snowblind on it....still a good find for me though.

Yeah...also id consider someone insane if they downloaded the Electric Wizard videos I put up on Youtube. One is 7 1/2 hours, another is 2 hours, and the last one is about 1 1/4 hours. The 7 1/2 hour one is their studio discography from Electric Wizard to Black Masses. 2 hour one is the songs they had on splits, EPs, and singles. And the last one is the Pre-Electric Wizard album.

Is it in a similar style to Graveyard Metal?

I went to the store a while ago to buy Powerslave by Iron Maiden, but wound up buying that as well as Number of the Beast. After listening, I thought they were both excellent and well worth the money.

I also finally got around to replacing the strings on my old Fender Stratocaster, which must have had the same set of strings for at least three years at that point. It sounds significantly better now.

I haven't changed the strings on my guitars in over 3 years and they still sound the same as they did when I last changed em.
Then again my strings never rust or break...ever ._.

Introduced my roommate to a few metal bands (At the Gates, Arch/Matheos, Kingdom of Sorrow) and he seemed to like them. Any other good bands I should rec to get people into metal?

Yes, but it's a bit more "refined" with a greater variety of synths, as well as more adept dance beats and what will be a more professional production. As well, although there are a couple songs with blastbeats, the sound is slightly less "blackened" than before with greater use of dancebeats and different drum sounds.

All the hardware on my guitars is graphite-teflon, and i use exclusively ernie ball strings, so my strings NEVER break. Still, I like the "jangly" sound I get from new strings that have not seen the onslaught of sweat from my fingers.

I too use Ernie Ball strings. What do you use? I mainly use Regular and Skinny Top Heavy Bottoms.
Also my hands pretty much never sweat...and yet my hands never dry out ever not even in the cold.
which I find insanely weird....

I'm not very knowledgeable about strings myself, as I've hardly practiced guitar since I finished lessons a few years ago and only recently started picking it up again. I figured I'd try something new though, so I bought Ernie Ball Cobalt strings. They're supposedly brighter and have more output than other strings, and I've noticed this in comparison to my previous set of strings, but I have some doubt that I would notice much of a difference if the previous set of strings wasn't so dirty/rusty.

Hey Bamahut, I remember us discussing Boris and how you should definitely check them out. I thought about you recently when listening to this particular track. I thought you would like it : Boris - The Bell Tower of a Sign. Tell me what you think :)

Two very important albums for Heavy Metal. Great choices :)

It really depends of the people, really.

If you want to get people who are brainwashed by popshit, you'll have to get them slowly out of the stupid pop formula, usually by introducing them to metal with simple structures and predictable progression. Usually trying to avoid the most agressive or original and complex stuff.

But if you're friends are already into some interresting musical genres, you can try to get them into Metal through bands that share some aesthetical or song-writting similarities with the music they already like. For instance, I have a friend who likes ambient, ambient electronica, down-tempo, ethereal music, j-rock, etc. I introduced her to metal with bands like Agalloch, Versailles, Boris, etc.

Other people are generally open-minded to art... people like my girlfriend, with whom I didn't have any trouble making her listen to pretty much anything and everything in metal. She like Blotted Science, Agalloch, Benighted, The Morningside, Ulver, etc. These people are the best :)

If you have friend who like hardcore, punk, etc. Get them into grindcore, crust, crust/black metal. Stuff like Kvelertak, Benighted, Infernal Stronghold, Seeds In Barren Fields, etc. Thrash Metal should also work. Morbid Saint ftw !

Oh totally just remembered.
I got a copy of Songs For The Deaf and Wolfmother on cd today as well as Led Zeppelin II and Presence on vinyl :3
Now I have all 9 of Led Zeppelin's studio albums on vinyl! From Led Zeppelin I - Coda.

Oh yeah, there's the silly full album video variants. I don't mind using them if I'll only stream. It's all the more reasons to truly own the albums.

Not even halfway through as I type and I'm digging it. I hear good things about Heavy Rocks so I have confidence to pick this up. Still need to get some more Agalloch but what else I'd like to pick up is more Falconer. They seem to be one of the very few power metal bands that do it right in terms of providing a fantasy feel to the music.

Well actually now that I think about it, the only time I ordered something outside of the country was when I got my copy of Dopesmoker...and that came here fine.

It came from Canada

It's actually not that bad

I tend to use em for background music if im busy doing stuff and Windows Media Player is acting up for some reason.

I use power slinkies (.48-.11) for my DGCFAD tuned guitar and .54-.12 for my BEADF#B tuned guitar.
