  • TalonsOfFire That's fine there's no one there right now, I'll just try again when there's already people there
    July 22 02:37 PM
  • TalonsOfFire K I'm in, is this the right one to join? http://plug.dj/hard-jammers/
    July 22 02:19 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Does it matter if I make an account with facebook or with google? I'm not sure I want all these people having full access to my facebook account...
    July 22 02:12 PM
  • Betray my fault anyways
    July 16 01:05 PM
  • Betray nothing dude just 3962 obscure dm songs in a row
    July 16 12:50 PM
  • Mythodea Ok, dude, thanks for the invitation! Good to get some recognition around here!
    July 15 05:12 PM
  • Mythodea Hey, I am talking with ''fromtheinside'' and I just told him I have neither Facebook nor Twitter. Apart from Skype I have no other social network profile... So, I guess Plug is not an option. It's a good thing we can chat here, tho.
    July 15 08:24 AM
  • EvoHavok Yup, I'm online.
    June 20 09:29 AM
  • EvoHavok Wanna try that plug glitch fest again? Haha
    June 20 09:21 AM
  • EvoHavok Will do. Need to also hear a few more Zao records. And other stuff. Too much music, lol.
    June 20 09:18 AM
  • EvoHavok It's really sick. Anyway, I've only listened to Killer, CI and OP, so I have a lesser collection to choose from. Room Full of Eyes would be my second pick.
    June 20 09:10 AM
  • EvoHavok Well, yeah, I like Converge now more than I did the first times, but still can't understand all the people 5'ing Jane Doe. I just can't give it more than 4. I remember listening to Dillinger about 2 years ago and being like 'ah, I can't get this atm', so I passed on and gave them another chance with the release of the last album. 'When I lost my bet' made me like them, haha. Probably my fav track of theirs, although I suppose that's a weird choice.
    June 20 08:55 AM
  • EvoHavok Yup, I find Dillinger much more interesting as well. Zao, as well.
    June 20 08:37 AM
  • EvoHavok Eh, it's ok. That's probably Converge in my case. How do you feel about them?
    June 20 08:31 AM
  • EvoHavok I'm jamming Wo Fat's The Conjuring. Some stoner fun!
    June 20 08:18 AM
  • EvoHavok That's cool. It's also worth noting that Stanne has sort of a deeper tone on Damage Done. I prefer the raspier sound from the others.
    June 20 07:58 AM
  • EvoHavok Ah, I do have an inclination towards those leads and melodies you mention and give them more importance than the drums. The 3 albums I rec'd also put quite the emphasis on keyboards, dunno how much you like that in your melodeath, too. Heartwork and Surgical Steel are fine jams, though.
    June 20 07:51 AM
  • EvoHavok The album with Cathode Rain Sunshine (Damage Done) would be my 4th fav, I think. You could check Damage Done, Character and Fiction.
    June 20 07:34 AM
  • EvoHavok Goddamn, how could The Gallery bore you? That's likely in my top 10 albums ever. But I'm a huge melodeath buff, so yeah...
    June 20 07:30 AM
  • EvoHavok Well, that'd be something unique and maybe once in a life time, so if you get the occasion, don't miss it! Last year I really wanted to see Dark Tranquillity and didn't go, wonder when they'll come again around here. Do you dig them?
    June 20 07:24 AM
  • EvoHavok Ah, the same problem as me. I missed so many cuz there was no one to go with. That's why I think from now on I'll just go by myself if I want to see a band that much. The last one I went to was Children of Bodom in November. Rad night.
    June 20 07:09 AM
  • EvoHavok Some around here don't seem to care much about cd's at all. Do you like going to concerts?
    June 20 07:01 AM
  • EvoHavok Some of my 5's, stuff from teenage years that I still listen to and a few cd's I like that were at good prices. Still, there'd be loads of albums I'd like to have in my collection. If I get a well paid job I'll start buying more.
    June 20 06:54 AM
  • EvoHavok That's a nice number. I have 15 cd's lol. They don't even sell RHA headphones in my country apparently.
    June 20 06:01 AM
  • EvoHavok I have some cheap ones in mind, that seem to be well received. I don't need something fancy. I'm too much of a pirate haha, barely have cd's.
    June 20 05:34 AM
  • EvoHavok I'm not bored entirely bored yet, but yeah, no plans set in stone either. In other news, gotta get new headphones...
    June 20 05:18 AM
  • EvoHavok That's awesome! Any plans for summer?
    June 19 03:55 PM
  • EvoHavok This is one weird summer. It's been raining every day for a while. How's weather at your place?
    June 19 12:05 PM
  • Thealwaysopenedmind Thanks for the recs today man.
    June 17 08:28 PM
  • EvoHavok Haha thanks, that goes to you, too!
    June 17 04:18 PM
  • EvoHavok Sad to hear that. My exams are over at least, but I'm sort of an emotional wreck as well from some other mishaps.
    June 17 04:12 PM
  • EvoHavok Ah, thought you were finishing today. Well, I'll have to redo the failed ones in September. Emotionally exhausted from the learning or are there other reasons, too?
    June 17 03:57 PM
  • EvoHavok Mostly. Got top grade in a few, but also failed some. What about yours?
    June 17 03:28 PM
  • RunOfTheMill what would be your favourite X Japan track, other than Art of Life?
    June 11 11:00 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Sounds good man, keeping your priorities straight ;) I'm good here, looking forward to going home (I've been on exchange in France for the past 4 months). Curious, when did you get into X Japan?
    May 29 02:24 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Hey man, how's it going?
    May 27 04:28 AM
  • EvoHavok Thanks! Hope you do well, too! The first one I'm worried about is on Friday.
    May 18 09:29 AM
  • EvoHavok Damn. I have less and end on June 13.
    May 18 09:16 AM
  • EvoHavok I see. Mine start next week too. When are yours over?
    May 18 09:10 AM
  • EvoHavok Did you get to listen to that album from the local band? :)
    May 18 09:01 AM
  • Toondude10 booo :P
    May 18 07:07 AM
  • Toondude10 It's better.
    May 17 05:45 PM
  • Toondude10 Good, that's a damn good album.
    May 17 05:02 PM
  • Toondude10 Skinny Fists. Possibly one of the best albums I've ever heard, period. Do it now. :P
    May 17 04:32 PM
  • Toondude10 Ah, I see you've taken a liking to Black Emperor!
    May 17 03:30 PM
  • Toondude10 I really don't know. It just does. The whole thing sounds very anime-ish to me. I like it though.
    May 17 08:17 AM
  • Toondude10 Actually listening to it right now, reminds me of the Fairy Tail soundtrack.
    May 17 07:58 AM
  • Toondude10 Well I'll check that out when I get the time. Thanks.
    May 17 07:06 AM
  • Frippertronics yeah, there's no use in making it worse. if they want to have the s*** they want, then let em have it.
    May 11 04:56 PM
  • Frippertronics nah, gonna do it from the comfort of my home. thanks though mang
    May 11 04:53 PM
  • menawati ok ill give them a try thanks
    May 6 05:51 PM
  • menawati so what PM you recommend then, and dont say blind guardian because i just couldnt get into them
    May 6 05:33 PM
  • CaptainDooRight whoa! that a heft rec list. Might take me a while to get through all of them but I appreciate them all! I've transferred your recs to a notepad so I can find them easily and I'll be slowly chipping away at them. Thanks again!
    May 5 03:29 PM
  • EvoHavok https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHaYF1-sfL427Nia53WFJxGe_LbSagUOn sput altered the link, so this one should be better.
    May 4 10:27 AM
  • EvoHavok Glad you liked it. If you wanna hear the full album, the band is streaming it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inbReIBioPI
    May 4 10:23 AM
  • EvoHavok Now it's constantly giving errors.
    May 4 10:06 AM
  • EvoHavok Ah, sorry, was still afk.
    May 4 09:56 AM
  • EvoHavok Thought it was hating just me.
    May 4 08:29 AM
  • EvoHavok Some 'Reconnecting' issue.
    May 4 08:05 AM
  • EvoHavok Dumb question, but what's this plugging actually? I've seen people mentioning it a lot of times.
    May 4 07:59 AM
  • EvoHavok I have all Draconian's albums and I love them. Also, Beyond the Veil from Tristania is awesome.
    May 4 07:58 AM
  • EvoHavok I only know Requiem and the debut. I enjoyed those a lot as well, but this one is better. And I have some sort of affinity for female fronted metal bands.
    May 4 07:48 AM
  • EvoHavok Mhm, that album is so good. They really stepped up their game since their previous one.
    May 4 07:42 AM
  • GmemberKills I'm glad to see someone else mention Deadly Premonition whenever there is a list about video games. Its one of, if not my favorite game of all time.
    April 28 04:24 PM
  • Pheromone Not a clue who the **** is on though, there was just me, GMember and Stallion about 30 minutes ago.
    April 26 04:59 PM
  • Pheromone aha I feel your pain. I'm only here for a few more jams so there's no point right now. You gotta power through mate
    April 26 04:57 PM
  • EvoHavok At least Tommy's doing a great job and if he lets loose like in certain SW songs, then the next Kamelot album could be very interesting.
    April 23 02:36 PM
  • EvoHavok Kyo's voice in 'Mushi' gives me chills every time; one of his best clean moments imo. And well, I loved Roy's voice even before seeing how hyped it is here. Too bad it became weaker over time, but the One Cold Winter's Night DVD is still one of my fav live moments.
    April 23 02:25 PM
  • EvoHavok Dir En Grey's Kyo, Roy Khan, Chino Moreno, Akerfeldt, Myles Kennedy. Mike Patton is awesome, I should listen to more of his works.
    April 23 01:56 PM
  • EvoHavok Which would be your top singer choices?
    April 23 12:58 PM
  • EvoHavok Oh, those are among my favourites. I really dig the vocals, but I can understand why they wouldn't be to everyone's liking.
    April 23 12:52 PM
  • EvoHavok Dunno which albums you've heard, but well, I've never had a problem with the female sopranos. The current ones also sound very good live.
    April 23 12:39 PM
  • EvoHavok I had to give it a 4.5. Do you like Therion?
    April 23 12:34 PM
  • EvoHavok Yup, Emerald Sword and Dark Tower of the Abyss ftw!
    April 23 12:25 PM
  • EvoHavok Haha, love that particular Rhapsody record.
    April 23 12:22 PM
  • EvoHavok Art of Life live is beyond epic!
    April 22 08:39 AM
  • Pheromone That's prob his weakest but if you dig it then that's great to hear!
    April 21 06:41 PM
  • Pheromone The Hip Hop is prominent but not nearly as the Jazz.Check out this one; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qU2MXeAz1EIt's not usually a favorite for fans of his, but it's one of his best imo.
    April 21 06:33 PM
  • Pheromone Cool. As I said you may not dig him
    April 21 06:28 PM
  • Pheromone Aha, have you ever listened to Nujabes btw? Not sure it's any up your street but I can't get enough of the guy.
    April 21 06:23 PM
  • Pheromone I'm not a huge PM listener but I can't say I didn't dig that. I love the vocals!
    April 21 05:58 PM
  • EvoHavok When Zin attempts them, he's cringeworthy indeed, but luckily he doesn't too often. The normal singing voice is bearable.
    April 21 04:29 PM
  • EvoHavok Mk, had to check one song out of sheer curiosity. I expected something worse from the singer, but it's still... well, not really good.
    April 21 04:17 PM
  • EvoHavok Oh man, I've just read your sound-off. I should stray away from that, it seems.
    April 21 04:05 PM
  • EvoHavok A concert formed by all of them would have been the epicness, if they were still together.
    April 21 03:55 PM
  • EvoHavok Aha, I heard it when you told me about it a few weeks ago in the Black Halo thread, so basically today was the second listen; it's the best off Jubilee, but I think I prefer others overall.
    April 21 03:45 PM
  • EvoHavok And it sure was worth it. Wonder what will replace Rhapsody of Darkness as my favourite Versailles track.
    April 21 03:39 PM
  • EvoHavok I could say I've been for a while, just didn't delve enough into their material.
    April 21 03:33 PM
  • EvoHavok Nice and very consistent album. Not sure which songs would be my favs, gonna listen again later. Back to 'Noble' for now :D.
    April 21 03:09 PM
  • EvoHavok Yep, many cheerful tunes. Just got to 'Vanilla' and I think I must've heard this back in 6th grade or around that time.
    April 21 02:27 PM
  • EvoHavok That 'Ares' intro before it is beautiful.
    April 21 02:09 PM
  • EvoHavok I see. Well, my fav tracks used to be Redemption and Returner. Does Mars have tracks in that vein?
    April 21 01:46 PM
  • EvoHavok These could change most likely, but at the moment: No Reason, Jesus, Lost Angels, In Flames, Blue Lagoon. I know he's terrific live, that's also why I don't dig the ones where he uses vocal effects too much.
    April 21 01:40 PM
  • EvoHavok I'm thinking of a 4 for Re:Born. Some very neat songs, some less so. Thanks for the playlist! :)
    April 21 01:21 PM
  • EvoHavok I've no doubt it will. I guess they'll release a song soon enough to get an idea.
    April 21 12:20 PM
  • EvoHavok I like it, too. Just sounds evil and badass. Looking forward to the new record.
    April 21 12:12 PM
  • EvoHavok You're named after a cool Opeth song, heh.
    April 21 12:08 PM
  • EvoHavok That's some dedication :D. I guess you own the Versailles albums, too?And that's one of Gackt's songs that I know, pretty awesome.
    April 21 11:56 AM
  • EvoHavok Oh, you get it online or you find it at a local record store?
    April 21 11:43 AM
  • EvoHavok Yup. I guess I'll check some Gackt album later as well. Always dug the singles I've heard from him. Mars would be the best choice, eh?
    April 21 11:42 AM
  • EvoHavok Lol I was about to tell ya now how much I like 'Noble'. Really gorgeous album. The others are slick and well-composed as well.
    April 21 11:27 AM
  • discovolante Alright, thanks! I'll put it on my list lol.
    April 21 12:42 AM
  • ASnideReturns Pretty awesome track from what I've listened to from it so far.
    April 20 09:45 PM
  • EvoHavok I'll check Noble and Jubilee. Maybe Holy Grail as well, but I remember you mentioned in the Noble review thread that it's their low point.
    April 20 10:42 AM
  • EvoHavok I know some stuff from Noble which seems to be the best, so I'm off to a nice start by fully hearing it.
    April 20 10:35 AM
  • EvoHavok I'm thinking about listening to Versailles discography these days and see how it compares.
    April 20 10:27 AM
  • EvoHavok 'Symphony of the Vampire' is awesome.
    April 20 10:01 AM
  • discovolante I actually reviewed "Mars" before, but that was two years ago, so I may review another Gackt album. That "Mars" review is one of my earliest ones lol.
    April 19 02:01 PM
  • discovolante I can't really tell ya, man. I just love his music, and that album in general.
    April 19 12:28 PM
  • emester Thanks man really appreciate it
    April 18 10:05 AM
  • emester Hey just wondering, you hot any Japanese metal recs for me? I enjoy X Japan and Dir En Grey, so bands similar to them would be right up my alley
    April 18 09:37 AM
  • Pheromone haha no problem, the sites great for listening to unknown s*** that you can't find on YouTube.
    April 17 07:04 AM
  • Pheromone I think all of their albums are over on Grooveshark so that's a good place to check.http://grooveshark.com/#!/buck_tick
    April 17 06:58 AM
  • Pheromone I live in the UK so I don't have to worry about that. You listened to Buck-Tick yet mate?
    April 17 06:21 AM
  • Pheromone Yeah, I checked Shiina last night and she was great.
    April 17 05:48 AM
  • Pheromone Yo man, do you know Yuki?
    April 16 07:19 PM
  • dannyboy89 I guess you and I have different views on what constitutes a 4 rating.
    April 16 04:09 AM
  • ASnideReturns I wish they had more soft songs like In Depth. The build up was amazing.
    April 13 02:28 PM
  • ASnideReturns Yeah dude, In Depth Perception is amazing. any other favs of yours?
    April 13 02:25 PM
  • ASnideReturns Yeah man, In Depth Perception is the best track though in my opinion. I might be bias in that regard though since it's combating my anxiety a bit.
    April 13 01:45 PM
  • ASnideReturns The album is straight up metalcore with some symphonics / choir vocals, but if I had to pick my favorite one it would be that one. Other good tracks include: Empty Eyes (Ft. Garret Rapp), The Illusionist (Ft. Tyler Carter), Sick Fiction and Sleepless Nights.
    April 13 01:39 PM
  • ASnideReturns I've been listening to it the last couple of days to help out with my anxiety since I've had a pretty rough couple of days.
    April 13 01:26 PM
  • ASnideReturns Listen to this song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nL-b7dIjDxk Pretty much my favorite song of this year so far.
    April 13 01:14 PM
  • ASnideReturns Holy **** this is awesome.
    April 13 01:11 PM
  • ASnideReturns It's no prob man. I shared one of the band's songs on my new modeling page (I started alternative modeling like two days ago so I only have a couple pics up but.. yeah XD - https://www.facebook.com/DaltonDuBoisOfficial )
    April 5 02:21 PM
  • ASnideReturns I honestly enjoyed this version more of "The Revenant Choir" track 8, the album version.
    April 5 02:19 PM
  • ASnideReturns Review's finished, gonna post it right now.
    April 5 02:11 PM
  • ASnideReturns I've listened to it three times already, I'm actually listening to it while writing it as well.
    April 5 01:52 PM
  • ASnideReturns I'm writing books dude, writing a review is easy peazy compared to that.
    April 5 01:46 PM
  • ASnideReturns The review's almost done actually, how long are you going to be online for?
    April 5 01:41 PM
  • ASnideReturns I know that's good and everything, but I think it just needed a tad bit more impact if you get what I mean. Like the drums needed a bit more oomph and the mix needed to be just a bit cleaner.
    April 5 01:30 PM
  • ASnideReturns It's the vocals, guitars AND classical influences that all do it for me. Everything blends amazing. I wish the production was just a tad bit better though.
    April 5 01:21 PM
  • ASnideReturns Honestly I think the song composition on this is spectacular. The blend between power / classical and metal influences is absolutely fantastic.
    April 5 12:58 PM
  • ASnideReturns Dude, I dig the costumes hard. Also "Episode" is probably one of my favorite piano pieces that I've heard in a LONG time. Yeah, I'm gonna review this. It's just too good to ignore and it doesn't have a review. I've also never reviewed a foreign band before.
    April 5 12:51 PM
  • ASnideReturns It's just the vocals, the guitars, their outfits and the symphonic arrangements. Their album "Noble" was a 4.5 for me. Dude like... straight up, amazing. I doubt Sputnik would enjoy it even if I review it though, I feel like they're judging of Japanese music (I'm not because I've been into anime practically my whole life)
    April 5 12:42 PM
  • ASnideReturns Gonna review it probably.
    April 5 12:36 PM
  • ASnideReturns Holy ****ing s***. You've given me a new obsession. I love this. I've already listened to the whole album now.
    April 5 12:33 PM
  • dannyboy89 Check his posts on my shoutbox and work your way from there.
    March 29 03:34 PM
  • dannyboy89 Nice to see someone who agrees on LaBrie's vox being annoying. I also despise Portnoy's drumming and Petrucci's lead playing (had a debate with JT about it recently) but will admit that IaW and Awake are decent albums.
    March 29 03:12 PM
  • dannyboy89 Generally speaking, what's your opinion of Dream Theater?
    March 28 03:12 PM
  • ASnideReturns Dude some of the reactions are downright hilarious sometimes. I've been doing Harsh Vocals for about six years now, fun as all hell.
    March 20 05:52 PM
  • ASnideReturns If people insult my screaming (which usually isn't the case, everyone who I've shown my screaming to really enjoys it apparently) I just tell them to scream like I do, and that usually shuts them up.
    March 20 05:46 PM
  • ASnideReturns I enjoy pretty much all genres (My top 5 being Metalcore, Hard Rock, Classical, Country and Alt Rock), I used to be an elitist too and would always insult the bands I enjoyed on websites I went on due to their reputation. But that's not the way to be, it makes a person absolutely miserable.
    March 20 05:31 PM
  • ASnideReturns Thanks man, I used to get seriously pissed when people would insult my music taste and wouldn't give things a chance. One day though I just realized that the only way to get people to give things a chance is to show them how much you enjoy them and to properly articulate why you enjoy them even if it's in an unconventional way (such as weird reviews, etc). If people still won't give the music a chance it's not a big deal though.
    March 20 05:15 PM
  • pedro70512 I was going to ask about japanese metal bands but it looks like you already rec'd a number of them. So thank you in advance.
    March 13 11:50 AM
  • skybluefi Ryo Fukui´s album Scenery is good, thanks for the recommendation.
    March 9 11:21 PM
  • Propose no
    March 5 03:20 PM
  • Kralle I think it is kinda stupid to have on a site for reviewing. Music reviews are and will be subjective. Trying to objectively define what is good or bad music is stupid.
    February 27 09:01 AM
  • Kralle Thanks man :) The page doesnt seem to think im very objective though
    February 25 04:34 PM
  • skybluefi Thanks for the welcome and i´ve seen that you have a good taste also, if you like the metal japanese bands I will recommend Sabbat (JPN)/album karisma and sigh/album Imaginary Sonicscape.
    February 23 10:53 PM
  • TheMoreira That was intense.. Don't know how much i could like those guys but i could certainly go for a complete listen. What's their name? I tried to find them but it's kinda confusing for me.Also are you asian? Don't take it in the wrong way, i just thought of asking cus you seem to like some asian bands of all sorts.
    February 21 05:28 PM
  • MortimusPrime you shoutboxed yourself friend :3
    February 20 05:43 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity Been jamming it in Paris, so ****ing good :3
    February 20 05:40 PM
  • MortimusPrime wow you really changed your mind on ire works. all the way up to a 4.5?
    February 20 05:34 PM
  • SowingSeason Holy crap, I feel like I forgot everything I learned in school when I read that question. I remember doing problems like that a while ago, so give me some time, but I'm not promising anything.
    February 14 10:01 AM
  • SowingSeason Not at all, shoot
    February 13 07:11 PM
  • musicalmedicine I could man, I could. Good idea.
    January 11 05:18 PM
  • FrozenVain I actually wrote a review for that Imperial Circus Dead Decadence album a while ago. It's awesome. The Cowboy Bebop anime is really good. The intro is one of my favorite anime intros actually. That's a lot of recommendations. Gonna check it all out in time.
    January 10 07:27 AM
  • FrozenVain Wow, thanks! They all sound/look interesting. I've heard about some of the before such as Tang Dynasty and Versailles but I will certainly check them out now that you mentioned them.
    January 9 05:41 PM
  • FrozenVain You have some crazy good recommendations. Just jammed some The Last Successor and it's really good as well. Do you have any other obscure asian metal albums that you might recommend (preferably japanese for obvious reasons)?
