  • Thor The two leaked songs are incredible, don't know what you're talking about. But the rest of the album is very different from those two.

  • LysergicLollypops Probably the most psychedelic ribwich Homer has ever seen.
    March 6 06:42 PM
  • LysergicLollypops True, but still, when it comes to Meshuggah, theres probably some sort of complex algorithm that decides the perfect tracks to release to the world at any given time.
    March 6 12:30 AM
  • LysergicLollypops Fear not, bands like Meshuggah tend to tease their fans with the generally weaker tracks from their to-be-released albums.

  • Lambda Yeah, I have a feeling it'll grow on me. I got it mostly because Gavin Harrison is one of my favourite drummers and Porcupine Tree is awesome. I may check out Drop- and they have anew one out too?! Perhaps that one first....

  • Jom No problem, all set. Thanks!
    February 29 01:22 PM
  • NeutralThunder12 i was jammin al di meola and then some of hey rosetta's new album all good, time for work

  • NeutralThunder12 sup bro

  • Yazz_Flute They were both pretty hasty rates I can admit. But I didn't enjoy them nearly as much as I do Rage For Order, Operation Mindcrime, or Empire. Parts of them irked me, even. Songs like Queen of the Reich and Take Hold of the Flame are great though.
    January 23 07:44 PM
  • Yazz_Flute That depends. I'd probably have to go with 'no,' I tend to obtain whatever is available. Usually if there's a big different in the multiple production values, I prefer the original. IE Rust in Peace
    January 23 05:45 PM
  • Jom ... never mind, I think I figured it out. Merged all the bands together. Let me know if that's not what you meant.
    November 5 10:37 AM
  • Jom ... I think your message got cut off in my shoutbox. Your sentence just kinda... stops.
    November 5 10:36 AM
  • silentpotato wow thanks man! that is a very flattering analogy haha. Yeah i did all the vocals myself, the only thing i didn't do is the keyboards at the end of sickly moon, my buddy max contributed those. ive been told that most of the vocals sound nothing like me lol. im really glad you dug them, im always kind of nervous showing people those tunes for the first time. but your down to do the split eh?
    November 3 10:18 PM
  • silentpotato track 1 http://www.mediafire.com/?95ryvdwdjdw21z4 track 2 http://www.mediafire.com/?2t8949e6u838j3k track 3 http://www.mediafire.com/?yag5n9a4dtsi23a and i dunno, i just liked what i heard and thought it would be cool to put a split together with someone from another part of the world that i had never met in real life haha
    November 2 08:28 PM
  • silentpotato yee take a listen to my tracks before you decide, my music is kinda weird. these three songs were my first gander at making music by myself and also my first time playing the majority of the instruments you will hear for a project. first time doing vocals too, all ive contributed musically before this is drums and lyrics for a few bands. ill send u links as soon as i can i just have to trim off the ends and then upload them onto mediafire or something
    November 2 07:57 PM
  • silentpotato throw our 6 songs together with some art for a split ep would you be interested? i would be more than down to put the songs together and send you it back with my half and some album art for at least the purpose of burning a few discs, throwing the art in a sleeve and being able to give something to our friends
    November 2 07:41 PM
  • silentpotato haha yeah i was gonna make that connection but i didnt want to sound like a dick if i was wrong about it being intentional. i didn't find anything wrong with the second half actually, i thought the distortion was suitable, but im a sucker for anything that sounds raw. i wouldn't have noticed that or the drums if u hadn't mentioned :). but i have a proposition for you unless you have something else in mind for demo tunes... i have my 3 song ep/demo as well.. if i were to
    November 2 07:36 PM
  • silentpotato correct me if im wrong but the first song sounds very tool inspired. **** man, these tracks are really tight... im about half way through the third one right now, i think it might be my favorite. im really impressed man i honestly have nothing bad to say at all... have you/are you planning on physically releasing these songs in any way?
    November 2 07:19 PM
  • silentpotato lol sweet thanks ill let u know in a bit!
    November 2 07:00 PM
  • silentpotato cool im stoked to listen (but i think you forgot to send me the links lol)
    November 2 06:37 PM
  • silentpotato thanks dude! ill let u know as soon as its done
    November 2 03:12 PM
  • silentpotato haven't started yet! i'm moving on friday so its been a hectic couple weeks. I'll get right on it once i've settled in to my beautiful new home :)
    November 1 11:32 PM
  • silentpotato haha actually i kind of hate doing art high on drugs, but at least on acid i am still somewhat competent and it's kind of fun. usually i just give up half way through so i much prefer to do my work sober. ill try a weird fishes one soon just for you :p.
    October 23 05:53 PM
  • silentpotato both yet lol. If you had a different track in mind i'd love to give er a try, and if you were thinking All I Need, i might do a sober version aha.
    October 22 10:56 PM
  • silentpotato siccck just lemme know! i'm July 13th 1992, 7:30pm. Calgary Alberta. My favorite track is All I Need. I don't know if that's the one you were thinking of but... you timed your question pretty perfectly. I came home last night high as a kite on acid, read your post, put All I Need on repeat and made a piece :p. http://sudatsuga.deviantart.com/#/d4dnmnq the one titled The Next Act. I'm not sure if it's more the visuals I get from the song, more acid, or equal parts of
    October 22 10:53 PM
  • silentpotato and you definitely did spot some kayo dot/maudlin and radiohead titles haha. a couple of the pieces in there were directly inspired by the music and art of those musicians. Particularly King of Limbs and Blue Lambency Downward.
    October 21 08:11 PM
  • silentpotato thanks a lot man! i must say my art definitely tends to be dramatically influenced by both my mood and the music i am either making or listening to at the time. i've always felt like the only way i can clearly and cohesively express my mind to my satisfaction is through, art, music and poetry. I'm gonna upload some of my non-graphic art on there soon i'll let you know when it goes up!
    October 21 08:08 PM
  • silentpotato sounds good man i'd like to hear them!! lemme know what you think of my art!
    October 21 01:18 AM
  • Jom Hahaha, it was probably meeeeeeeeeee! I haven't changed my photo in years. Thanks for noticing ;)
    October 20 10:29 PM
  • silentpotato haha well, my Cap is moon, subconscious, so unfortunately that voice doesn't pipe the **** up and speak for itself until after the fact a lot of the time haha. http://sudatsuga.deviantart.com/ thats a link that has all of my photo manipulation from when i started doing graphic art till now. fancy that, anywhere i can hear your ep?!
    October 20 03:44 PM
  • Jom Well, I play drums...
    October 20 02:30 PM
  • silentpotato wonders. I will also openly admit that yeah, i am quite different outside of the internet then i am here. It's just too hard not to have a little fun around here, and hardly anyone else takes anything seriously here anyways. There are actually several other users that to my surprise turned out to be very intelligent people once i got passed their 'this is the internet' face.
    October 20 06:24 AM
  • silentpotato and no haha not really a metaphor, it was quite literal aha. I'll drop you a link for some of my art tomorrow if your interested, and you can check out my newest music on the site here. it'll give you a little bit of an idea of what i mean haha. Taking into consideration that these 3 songs are the only songs i have written as an independent musician instead of as a band and that i have no training in any instrument (or singing) that i play in the songs except drums! inspiration does
    October 20 06:22 AM
  • silentpotato haha, that makes me almost jealous that you are the one who got the Moon in Cancer! Your inclinations towards these wonderful things is probably even stronger than mine. Well your lack of accessible water probably makes traveling that much more grand when you can finally get yourself out and submersed in nightlight and the presence of water. I'm actually moving to an island in two weeks so I'm gonna have plenty for a while!
    October 20 06:17 AM
  • silentpotato indeed haha. I feel my very calmest and most collected under a full moon or seated by a still body of water. especially if i can get both at the same time. And there is no way to deny that the highlights of my ventures in music and art have all been the outcome of spells of depression or unfortunate events. haha in the most stereotypical cancerean ways possible of course. my favorite and most meaningful Graphic art is manipulated photos of exes, same with the content of my best music.
    October 20 05:47 AM
  • silentpotato its a ****in burden ahaha! and i am a smoker, good reflecting time for a grumpy Cancerean. But, negatives aside, Cancer is one of my favorite signs. Their connection between water and the moon and how attuned to the subconscious this can make them can make them terribly infatuating beings. Also the potential to release all the creativity the water signs carry through inspiration by their over-sensitive emotions can lead to some very beautiful work and ideas.
    October 20 04:50 AM
  • silentpotato those overwhelming characteristics can be identified and the idea that they are just a part of my nature has helped me work on them so much. Whenever I get 'stuck' in those feelings I can at least say to myself "hey man, your just being a ****ing watery ass cancer right now and once you chill the **** out your gonna be fine so don't do anything stupid." especially with the jealousy component because for the longest time i struggled with that a lot.
    October 20 04:29 AM
  • silentpotato that's fair man, i definitely point most of my interest in astrology towards the planets in signs because you are right, the characteristic parts are much more realistic to look at and also a little less far-out. Although I am quite interested in certain points on the destiny half... such as the houses that govern death and also sex. they are quite interesting. But yeah, the number one thing i've gotten out of astrology is learning about the negatives in my water sign. Just being aware that
    October 20 04:27 AM
  • silentpotato than enough water than i could handle. then the last one had her moon in Cancer and that was about 10x as intense, holy s***. and then the two girls I know who have moon in Scorpio are two of the most emotionally and psychologically unstable people i know. i think having too much water, especially a moon in a water sign (mostly cancer and scorpio) can be an incredibly dangerous feat if you don't have a good head on your shoulders
    October 20 04:07 AM
  • silentpotato yeah it took me a long time to get there... getting over my stubborn and judgmental tendancies. but i can even pick the good out of something as corrupted and over-read as Christianity now... which was one ideology that I previously had a bone to pick with like no other haha. but yeah i could see it. even having my sun in Cancer i find myself to be emotionally over-whelming and demanding. Its funny my last two exes had sun or moon in Cancer. The first had sun and i found that to be more
    October 20 04:05 AM
  • silentpotato expressions of character. then the planets in houses express aspects of destiny, and the houses in signs detail this further. lastly the interplanetary aspects detail how the character detailed by planets in signs can influence destiny detailed by planets in houses and houses in signs.
    October 20 03:37 AM
  • silentpotato haha wow thats crazy she had all three water signs eh? that sounds like it could emotionally trying. haha awe s*** man, that sucks. i dunno i take that s*** with a grain of salt, there are always people that look at everything good in the right ways and the wrong ways and also people who look at everything BAD in the right ways and the wrong ways. But yeah houses are cool, they bring everything down to an even more detailed picture. from my understanding, the planets in signs are obviously
    October 20 03:34 AM
  • silentpotato ok so we share neptune.. and that's the only planet, i'm honestly surprised we even share that. but what is more ****ed is that we share several Placidus Orb houses; III, IV, V, VII, IX, XI and both Rising and Midheaven on top of that. AND we two planets in houses. Uranus and Neptune both in Ascendant.
    October 20 03:14 AM
  • silentpotato haha pretty much... ill be incredibly surprised if we also share even a couple planets and such but i just need to see this s*** haha
    October 20 03:05 AM
  • silentpotato may i ask what your date, time and place of birth are? i would be super interest to look at your full chart and see if there is any correlation in our planets and houses as well.
    October 20 02:54 AM
  • silentpotato lol, dude my rising is Sagittarius. I always thought it was ****ed that i had all 4 elements too haha! It is impossible to have sun, moon, rising and midheaven all in one sign though because rising and midheaven can never be the same. but i do know someone who is a triple Scorpio (moon, sun, and rising) though which is pretty crazy
    October 20 02:48 AM
  • silentpotato lol really? we must be ****ing doppelgangers or something, that is some weird s***
    October 20 01:19 AM
  • beefshoes You were talking about it on my list though lol
    May 17 11:28 PM
  • beefshoes Sound, where did you find Ghost?
    May 16 11:17 PM
  • Gnominator Nice ratings.
    March 25 09:15 AM
  • coneren Very little could make up for Nickelback, and Bieber
    October 21 05:45 PM
  • coneren He makes me feel bad for being Canadian. I really hope for your sake he never steps on any European land
    October 21 03:01 PM
  • coneren You lucky son of a bitch, I saw him on TV once and oh god, it was awful
    October 21 02:51 PM
  • coneren Some Bieber would do the trick!I think I will do 1 DM album, and 1 BM...not sure which one I want for the big 666 yet though.
    October 21 02:21 PM
  • coneren I'm not even sure what it will be yet. I might have to a rating and rate it again. I'll figure it out, hopefully
    October 21 01:56 PM
  • coneren HAHAHA, I actually plan on rating 2 albums on halloween and leaving it for a day
    October 21 01:10 PM
  • coneren I saw you like both Crimsons, and Devin Townsend..I stopped looking because that is all i need to know. Very great ratings

  • Wizard I will be releasing my best of 2010 metal after Christmas with alot more stuff than just dm and bm.
    October 10 10:39 AM
  • Wizard Hey dude, long time, no see? Here are some of my fav's from 2010 besides 'Majesty and Decay' hahahahaha: Cold Body Radiation - The Great White Emptiness (BM), Burzum - Belus (BM), Castevet - Mounds of Ash (Progressive BM), Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini (Progressive BM), Hooded Menace - Never Cross the Dead (DM), Nachmystium - Addicts - Black Meddle Part II (Progressive BM), Vasaeleth - Crypt Born and Tethered to Ruin (Best old school dm I've ever heard)
    October 10 10:39 AM
  • Hawks Yeah they're pretty awesome. Like I said, check out Those of the Unlight first. That seems to be the most well-liked album around here. My personal favorites are Plague Angel and ROM 5:12 though.
    October 4 09:36 AM
  • Hawks No problem man. Abigail Williams was symphonic black metal on their first album, but the new one is more of a straight up black metal sound. Marduk is just extremely fast black metal. If you're going to check out a Marduk album start with either Those of the Unlight.
    October 4 09:24 AM
  • Hawks Hey bro I see you like Dissection too. Go check out my review for the new Abigail Williams album. Very similar to bands like Dissection and Marduk. I think you might dig it.
    October 4 09:09 AM
  • Hawks Ohh I see. Alright man, just wondering.
    September 27 05:07 PM
  • Hawks You got Last FM man? If you do and I'm already your friend on there then I'm retarded lol.

    September 20 05:58 PM
  • Jethro42 That's cool man. Out of that bunch you're digging, there's 3 or 4 other essential, consistent albums in '2112', 'Signals', 'Grace Under Pressure' and to some degree 'Power Windows'. Each and every of their albums have something good to offer, so have fun!!
    August 15 06:23 PM
  • Jethro42 correct. and out of my 3 rec'd Rush songs, 2 are on 'A Farewell to Kings', and 'La Villa strangiato' is on 'Hemispheres'. I'm looking forward for what you think.
    August 14 08:34 PM

  • GaryBusey Have you had a recent name-change?
    May 18 09:27 PM
  • tiesthatbind Yes, I don't know if you caught that in the review, but I'm doing the whole discography (studio albums that is), including the Change of Seasons EP.
    April 21 06:07 PM
  • tiesthatbind Well well well, it looks like Awake is seriously growing on me. Will probably be a 4.5 soon.
    April 21 02:45 AM
  • Hawks Alright dude well thanks for trying to help me out. I appreciate it.
    April 11 03:49 PM
  • Hawks I've always known what it was I just never really was interested in checking it out even though a lot of people around here love it. I'll have to remember to check it out.
    April 11 03:03 PM
  • Wizard No problem man, anytime. I love recommending stuff, makes me feel important in this world hahahaha.
    February 14 08:34 PM
  • Wizard Death Metal recs: Fleshgod Apocalpse - Oracles, Brutal Truth - Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses, Deeds of Flesh - Path Of The Weakening, Suffocation - Pierced from Within, Portal - Swarth (****ing brutal as something really ****ing brutal hahahaha). Hope that helps : )!
    February 13 10:12 PM
  • Wizard Also, some black metal rec's: Drudkh's Microcosmos (my favourite at the moment), Krallice's 's/t' and 'Dimensional Bleedthrough, and Walknut's 'Graveforests and Their Shadows'. Death metal rec's: Gwynbleidd's 'Nostalgia' (more Opethy melo-death), Immolation's 'Majesty and Decay', Incantation's 'Mortal Throne of Nazarene', and Ulcerate's 'Everything is Fire'.
    February 13 08:23 PM
  • Wizard I know for a fact you would love Old Man Gloom, that's Turners other similar sounding band to Isis. His other two projects that I know of are Jodis, which is minimalistic drone, and Greymachine which sounds like your being run over by an industrial-sized dump truck. I actually have a review written for Greymachines 'Disconnected' on this site.
    February 13 08:18 PM
  • Wizard Had a question, do you enjoy anything else by Aaron Turner? I have loads of stuff by the guy when he isn't making me jizz in Isis.
    February 11 08:24 AM
  • Wizard Consistent and hypnotizing in the ultimate sense.
    February 3 05:23 PM
  • Progmaster85 you have a really good taste in music
    February 3 11:00 AM
  • Wizard Are you ****ing reading my mind man? 'Garden of Light' is a monster but I would have to say my favourite off 'ItAoT' would be "Dulcinea". The crescendo at the end of the song is GODLY! And "Altered Course" is one of my favourite tracks by Isis, hard to pick a favourite. Have you seen them live?
    February 2 08:38 PM
  • Wizard Your shoutbox was feeling lonely so I decided to cheer it up with an altered course of action. See what I did there? hahahaha
