  1. Generally don't like live albums at all - this is one of the two exceptions, because it honestly just sounds like them live without a load of processing, and captures the crowd noise, etc.

    Bunch of loons for a fanbase though - useful to bring along a large friend you can step behind from time to time. I guess they're done touring now, but if they reform and you're bored on a weekend... 😄

  2. And I don't think there are many metal fans in here, but just in case - this was on before the Aphex Twin. It's a 83 minute long song, so maybe get a snack and some coffee. It was mostly written by the band after the loss of their drummer to alcoholism, and it really captures some of the raw feelings of that even without the lyrics being intelligible for the first bit. Really moving live - lucky enough to have seen it twice.

    I can't take a full album of this sort of stuff...but Japanese punk singer Margaret Take has probably the most extreme female vocals I've heard


    Wow! Definitely the most underground thing I'm going to hear today. I'll offer up Lingua Ignota as competition - most of her singing is actually clean, but she has her moments of raw rage as well. This song is off Caligula, which she wrote as an exercise in self-therapy when recovering from an abusive relationship.  Women definitely aren't stuck in soothing all the time. :)

    In terms of male vs female voices I'm pretty sure I don't really have a preference, but your options are pretty limited in the more extreme genres, which tend to be pretty male-dominated.

    (If anyone listens to this be aware the volume completely skyrockets about 60 seconds into the song.)

    I'm starting to wonder if it's me getting older or if it's music losing something these days?  Or does the past just lose the filler stuff and combine the goodies?

    Maybe  it's that we have so many more options now and the field is flooded?

    I think maybe it's that..

    I think maybe it's that and the fact that when we're teens, we've got this chaotic pile of emotions running through us that make some things like music hit us even harder than normal. You might hit on other music you like now, but you've got a million other things going; music from your teens is a bit like your first love, maybe?

    Also yes to there being so many options now!

    Anyway, some mellow Sunday afternoon listening:

  5. Two things I've learned from this song - firstly, when you're in the office it's a good idea to make sure your laptop is paired to your headphones and not the office speakers before you press play and crank the volume, and secondly my co-workers don't like Abyssal. 😅

    it also meant that SL lost its appeal as a wide open, lawless frontier town where anything could and did happen.

    I know it's easy to romanticise it when you weren't there dealing with the griefers, etc, but I think I was hoping for a bit more of this when I joined.
