  • DarkNoctus sure thing - i'll get on it tomorrow. gotta sleep before work!
    September 15 02:25 AM
  • DarkNoctus eh - if you're happy with it, i'm happy with it. if you want another take we can try it, your call.
    September 15 02:06 AM
  • DarkNoctus i don't really like how you turned the pitch down on my voice (sounds very artificial) but the music is nice. glad i could be a part of it in any case!

    September 14 11:02 PM
  • ASnideReturns Carl... What are we standing in?
    September 14 10:56 PM
  • DarkNoctus sure, why not!

  • OmairSh Are you frightened?
    September 14 02:42 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Holy s***, dude, the artwork for those Taravana albums look ****ing awesome.
    September 14 11:48 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges They both claim to be in their twenties, but look through the PNWI thread for about two seconds and you'll think otherwise.
    September 12 11:15 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Meh, the forums are filled with bitter old men like Volumnius Flush and RouteOne.
    September 12 10:41 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Well, I gave it one anyway. Problem? HUH????
    September 12 10:22 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Ba Dumm Tsss
    September 12 09:36 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Idk, it might be the easiest, shortest discog review ever for me, haha. I just have to find the right time to review it though, because back-to-school happened.
    September 12 08:54 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Thing is, I primarily focus on NEW reviews, so if I have any reviewing plans for new albums, I go for them first. However, if that's not the case, then yeah, I'll definitely give it a shot. Only major thing I plan on reviewing this month is the new Electric Wizard, so you might be in luck!
    September 12 08:47 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Glad you liked it! And yeah, totally!
    September 12 08:38 PM
  • CaptainDooRight koo maine, work is good, i hope the same for you too, koo will check when i get a chance
    September 12 05:52 PM
  • CaptainDooRight haha thanks Alex! and yeah if the entire album follows suite I think I'll enjoy it too, just keep it kvlt, passionate, and filled with emotions m/
    September 12 09:54 AM
  • CaptainDooRight aha so I see you kept it instrumental eh? and since its on youtube im assuming its officially done now. Production sounds great to me. that riff at 2:41 gets me everytime, just the way it comes in...
    September 12 09:41 AM
  • CaptainDooRight No worries it was just released today so I'm not expecting much :)
    September 11 06:56 PM
  • CaptainDooRight appealed as in changing the rating? i rated back in April 25th 14 for your s/t lp but yeah i 3.5'd, will def reconsider if opinions change in the future nig
    September 11 05:21 PM
  • CaptainDooRight great sound off bro and thanks for that rating!
    September 11 05:07 PM
  • CaptainDooRight bro do you keep deleting your comments off my shoutbox? there's already two missing now, anywho checked your track and def sounds cleaner and better at louder volumes, good job!
    September 11 04:36 PM
  • CaptainDooRight sounds good bro and keep me posted
    September 11 12:49 PM
  • CaptainDooRight yeah I checked out all the other tracks that has that same artwork some cool stuff and that song collab with the female vox is cool too. and yeah bro I agree that mixing and mastering is literally the hardest part of recording and releasing music, it takes a lot of time, patience, skill, knowledge ect. Keep at it though bro as its an art in itself. But I like what you're doing and the production doesn't bother me at all so props
    September 11 12:33 PM
  • CaptainDooRight hey bro I just listened to thes to the spectre, did you say you touched up the ending? just wanna make sure, everything sounds good though and I know you're going to be adding to the ending right? just wanna make sure I checked the right track
    September 11 11:52 AM
  • CaptainDooRight composing and recording is probably my number one hobby, i get irritable if I'm not doing something so I guess you could call it an outlet
    September 11 09:46 AM
  • CaptainDooRight damn lol I keep forgetting to post everything I wanted to say. It has piano in it so thought you'd dig
    September 11 02:32 AM
  • CaptainDooRight *instrumental, I hate when the shoutbox cuts off words
    September 11 02:30 AM
  • CaptainDooRight If you like prog metal jazz feel free to dl my album that I just uploaded. It's an instrument but it's fully done:
    September 11 02:28 AM
  • CaptainDooRight and I should say that perhaps the bm vibes will mainly come in once the vox are recorded and so forth
    September 11 01:58 AM
  • CaptainDooRight thank you sir! I did the drums myself on an electronic drum kit. I see what you mean, its not pure raw bm but it carries some different influences so that's true. glad you like it. I have a whole album I'm working on in that vein so you'll probably see several releases this year with different styles per album.
    September 11 01:57 AM
  • CaptainDooRight sure bro I'll check it at work tomm and give you feedback. Here's rough draft bm track I'm working on uploaded to soundcloud without bm vox yet:
    September 11 01:39 AM
  • beefshoes Yeah, I got one channel of guitar parts for a new song tracked. I just need to find the time to record the bass and the rest of the guitars. I might not get that opportunity for awhile though unless I get a free weekend here soon.
    September 10 02:02 PM
  • CaptainDooRight just listened to book of the fallen and yup I see what you mean there. that's cool you're serious about music and I can only wish you the best with your endeavors bro. keep me posted
    September 10 11:58 AM
  • CaptainDooRight yeah bro you should either extend that last section and make it long with that recurring riff cuz its so good or make a track with a riff like that that goes on fer days. i like my bm like that since its about atmosphere and feels so i can get lost in it and just have the drums switch up to drive emotion, just my two cents, in california, you?
    September 10 11:36 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Bro and the riff at 2:35 makes my nipples super hard!
    September 10 11:02 AM
  • CaptainDooRight I'm so glad you're using soundcloud as I can't access bandcamp at work. Anywho, yes absolutely! That's exactly what I'm envisioning. Your drumming sounds tighter bro. Bro we would put on a sick show if we were in a band together. Can't wait to hear it with vox! I love the transition at 1:40...
    September 10 11:01 AM
  • CaptainDooRight yeah lol exactly what I was thinking. My son would jam it so hard
    September 9 12:42 PM
  • CaptainDooRight haha thanks for the feedback:
    September 9 11:36 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Hey man do you mind checking my new song for an upcoming lp called 'Bathing'?
    September 9 10:00 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Hey bro just checked your track 'The Spectre' and I really like the harmonies and chords you've chosen on it. It has good dynamics too and I like how the track manipulates the vibes and established emotions so as not to be stagnant. Not sure what type of drums you'll use but some bm style drums over that would prolly sound great with some double atmospheric bass.
    September 9 09:58 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Nice will check at work tomm. Are you doing the at the gates style vox urself?
    September 9 12:02 AM
  • beefshoes I'll get on that man, I completely forgot with school starting back and everything. aha I've not had much time for anything aside for writing papers and stuff.
    September 5 09:24 PM
  • YakNips aight i'll give those a shot, thanks!
    August 31 11:02 PM
  • beefshoes Done! I might go back and re listen to it in its entirety tonight so I can write a good soundoff for it. Glad you like In Autumn Night btw. I think it's funny you mentioned Moonsorrow. I have never actually listened to them before aside from maybe a few tracks on Last.FM (which would have had to have been at least 3 or 4 years ago). I literally wrote it as I was recording it, and I think it turned out to be a great follow up to the first track.
    August 10 04:31 PM
  • beefshoes No problem man.
    August 10 10:48 AM
  • beefshoes I didn't listen to the entire album (not yet anyway), but It's definitely sweet stuff man. You're a killer keyboardist. The only thing that was kind of iffy to me was the vocals in some places. They weren't bad by any means, but there were some moments that came off as chessy. Then again, most similar sounding prog (Banco, ELP...ect) comes off that way to me. haha Good stuff though. I'll jam a few more songs this evening.
    August 9 01:33 PM
  • beefshoes Is you album on soundcloud? I'll give it a jam later!
    August 9 10:15 AM
  • beefshoes ...being able to use them because it was off time. It was a really s***ty situation. Did you hear In the Autumn Night? It's got more of an Agalloch vibe going on.
    August 8 10:10 PM
  • beefshoes I dig it. I'm anxious to hear what you come up with once you have access to your kit. Keep the sound fairly similar if you can, because that sounds damn good. Haha I just hope I'm able to use it. You just have to make sure it's an isolated track recorded with a click track so that all I have to do is that paste and mix. You probably know that, but I just want to be sure. I did a collab with a guy a couple of years ago, and he worked his ass off recording keyboard tracks and I ended up not...
    August 8 10:09 PM
  • beefshoes It's definitely crude. haha I am loving the sound of the drums. What did you use to record that, or did you just loop older parts together?
    August 8 09:36 PM
  • beefshoes hey! I enabled both of the new demos for download in WAV format.
    August 8 02:49 PM
  • Torontonian Hey good chess game man! i enjoyed it. if you ever wanna play again i'm all for it
    August 7 10:50 PM
  • Greyvy i just saw your through the fire and flames piano cover and i like it alot ;D
    August 6 06:49 PM
  • adarkishman hahahahahaha ****ing formatting
    August 6 07:58 AM
  • adarkishman yeah man, it's a weird email though but you know, i made it 5 years ago or
    August 5 05:40 PM
  • adarkishman hey man!glad to hear you enjoyed itdude, if you would like to make some REAL album art for it, i would be ****ing over the moon to let you do that! im not much of an artist myself so I always intended if I were to make a full LP (not just an EP, but you know) i would get someone to do some art so yeah, if you think you would enjoy to make some art then that would be really really awesome
    August 5 05:08 AM
  • CaptainDooRight hmm, not sure if I'd have time with my schedule as it takes a lot more effort, time, and attention when you're working on someone else's music. but i'd like to hear it regardless if that's ok with you:
    July 7 05:05 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Someone already posted the article but thanks and yeah I would be down to send you something. I don't have anything right now but when I get something complete I'll send it over mate.
    July 2 12:14 AM
  • CaptainDooRight no i haven't, I'll def have to check, hey did you get my first message about the news article? its okay if you don't want to
    July 1 09:38 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Not sure if you're going to be around tomm but if I were type up a news article would you be willing to post it for so I don't come of as pretentious since it's my own album?
    July 1 12:14 AM
  • RoyalImperialGuard Never forget The Street Sharks
    June 30 01:12 PM
  • Jacquibim how do you keep getting promos, who do you contact and what do you say etc?
    June 24 08:41 AM
  • Jacquibim where did you get that fallujah album?!!?
    June 24 01:55 AM
  • smokersleeper5268 I guess you could say that was *puts on sunglasses*[/b]Cheesy[/b]
    June 17 11:33 PM
  • Viraemia Hi! I just read your Soreption review and thought you might be interested in doing a review for the new Genocide Of Prescription album?
    June 14 07:44 AM
  • BMDrummer What is that?
    June 1 01:36 PM
  • SticksmanTheBored That's pretty good. I'm also really eclectic in my music tastes, I can listen to almost anything and I strive to expand my horizons and explore new music every day.
    April 9 07:00 AM
  • SticksmanTheBored Nah, just kidding bro, I actually do like myself some Mastodon from time to time. Pretty interesting to see Gojira, The Ocean and Dvorak 5'd on your ratings btw, man!
    April 8 05:55 PM
  • SticksmanTheBored You're so metal omg Mastodon
    April 8 07:41 AM
  • LordePots i wouldnt write a 1 for it but id entertain the idea of giving it a 2.5
    April 5 09:53 PM
  • LordePots probably. if u like that album as much as you say i can assure you my review would probably be extremely upsetting lol
    April 5 08:25 PM
  • LordePots i dont care dude its all good its all good fun. and itsd, it was on silentpotato. i'm surprised you missed it tho it was fairy imfamous for a bit lol
    April 5 08:10 PM
  • Jom He's near-impossible to get in touch with, which is why we have to try to handle everything until we can't (hence the "I have no clue when he'll be back" bit).
    April 5 10:57 AM
  • Jom If South Park taught me anything: say his name 3 times in a mirror and he'll show up.
    April 3 08:06 AM
  • Jom Alright, so a couple things I've discovered that require higher intervention: 1) given the details you sent me, you should be able to log-in to the forums under your new account (I just tested this to confirm); 2) mx is going to have to merge your accounts somehow -- every time I try to log-in as you, I get a duplicate key code, meaning that you have 2 accounts with the same user ID. I can't actually fix that, but he can (but I have no clue when he'll be back).
    April 3 12:02 AM
  • Jom What was your previous username? You're not showing up on the forums.
    April 2 02:59 PM
  • Jom That username is already taken, unfortunately. As far as avatars go, you can do them through the User Control Panel on the forums (there's no UCP on the reviews site). I know, I know, it doesn't make sense. It just is what it is, I guess.
    April 2 12:06 PM
  • Jom Sure. What would you like?
    April 2 11:32 AM
  • CalculatingInfinity No problem, have fun :]
    March 13 03:03 PM
  • Feather Thanks for the reds, maybe I worded that poorly. I was looking for which Isis album to start with, Ill definitely check out those recs and get back to you.
    March 9 08:38 PM
  • Jom Cheers. As predicted, totally forgot about it. Can't say I'm not honest, at least.
    February 23 10:09 AM
  • InbredJed Man it's all cool
    February 17 09:46 AM
  • Friday13th Cool, I'd like to hear the difference. It's just my 'umble opinion, but if it resonated well, then I'm glad I could help!
    February 13 11:14 PM
  • Jacquibim Thanks, was a little surprised you didn't get the position as well, just keep writing and maybe the mods will give you one of those "ghost promotions"
    February 12 06:42 AM
  • InbredJed Hey man, did my demos scare you?
    January 30 05:48 PM
  • MyLittlePenis why? better to review those than popular albums. my soundoff will actually matter to someone somewhere
    January 18 11:31 PM
  • InbredJed I emailed you back, you didn't receive? No dude, I'm still working on stuff. I actually found how to make my tracks into mp3, so maybe I'll send you a tastebon what I've been up to.
    January 18 07:18 PM
  • CaptainDooRight check my new album bro, don't forget to rate:
    November 5 01:15 PM
  • CaptainDooRight check my new dm album, check my list for it
    November 4 05:55 PM
  • InbredJed Hey I listened to your album and I'm REALLY impressed.I would LOVE to record guitars over this just for the hell of it, and if you end up liking it, all the better.I've always wanted to do kinda what you've done here but never could get it all together, hat's off to you sir.
    September 30 08:38 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Thanks bro. Imo the best to accomplish that is to practice making music without a metronome. I know it sounds crazy but the level of naturality can be astounding if done right.
    September 30 10:00 AM
  • InbredJed wait, where is it posted?You have a bandcamp link?
    September 30 12:11 AM
  • InbredJed No I haven't yet, I will tonight.Logic has a pretty steep learning curve, I may have to check out a different program or take a course.

  • MUNGOLOID finished the first season a few weeks ago for the first time. haven't seen the second season yet.
    September 29 09:13 PM

    September 27 04:29 PM
  • evilford yo didn't want you to think I didn't like your Ulcerate review at all, it was a really good review, just that one point that kind of caught my eye. :] also why the f*** does sput do this? "Joined 12-31-69"
    September 5 02:42 PM

    May 27 10:08 PM
  • stepmaniac thanks, Alex! it's nice seeing some familiar faces on here.
    May 21 10:44 PM
  • CaptainDooRight hey thanks you buddy I'm really glad you enjoyed it, if you want I also did a dm track for an upcoming 2014 album which you can access at that same bandcamp page or i also made a recent list about it. Regarding the logo, thanks bro! If its possible try to make it as grimy and filthy as you possibly can without any cliches tho like inverted crosses ect. as that's quee. Also I'm not sure how difficult it is to create these logos but maybe you can take a stab at "Trvth" as well if you don't mind.
    April 25 11:51 AM
  • CaptainDooRight my album is done:
    April 2 04:16 AM
  • CaptainDooRight sweet bro I love you hard!!

  • CaptainDooRight bro where's the Ulcerate drum stylez
    March 2 08:53 PM
  • NocteDominum Yeah, my laptop wouldn't open the dl link, think it's got something to do with my anti-virus stuff (got herpes a couple weeks back) and ive been super paranoid about it.
    February 7 04:52 PM
  • NocteDominum Sure man, link me?
    January 8 10:46 PM
  • Sevhead Thanks for the heads up, it's a great title and cover.
    December 25 01:11 PM
  • CaptainDooRight sounds good bro I'm way down, keep me posted
    December 7 10:54 PM
  • CaptainDooRight i listened to some of it but haven't had a chance to check the whole thing out. I'll be honest with you it isn't really my thing and I'm not used to writting about albums I'm not passionate about. I've turned a few other users request too because of that. I'm gonna have to pass bro sorry.
    December 7 10:18 PM
  • CaptainDooRight oh lol I just realized who u are, forgot I have two accounts, is the clicking something that can be removed from the songs?
    December 6 01:43 AM
  • CaptainDooRight cool bro I'll check it out, it may take a few days for me to get to it cuz my schedule but I'll keep you posted
    December 5 02:57 PM
  • CaptainDooRight I'd be happy to check it out bro. I don't review much like I used to before but if I like it I'd be happy to review it. Send me the link.
    December 5 02:36 PM

  • Dashy Thanks man. Oh and don't worry Cyanide is a friend.
    April 30 12:19 AM
  • JamieTwort Let me know if and when you check out any of those blues rock recs I gave you. As you can probably tell by the number of recs I gave, it's one of my favourite genres so I'd be interested to know what you think.
