  • Jade Funny, I'm going to be in Sandy Springs today! I have a friend that's having a birthday party over in that area at his brother's apartment. And haha yes, that one :]

  • Jade My parents are in Forsyth, and I go to school in Dahlonega, up at North Georgia. And judging from your profile pic you may be interested in the album I just reviewed! :]

    April 28 05:31 PM
  • whywontyoudie i'm from Rome actually, only about an hour away. Some Mistakes' guitarist and my friend Micheal (guitar for Tir Asleen) run a GA hardcore forum, so needless to say i got into them fast.

  • ThePrince1993 How is Jonny's voice overproduced?
    March 10 07:47 PM
  • ThePrince1993 Yeah man I see where you are coming from. Some songs his lyrics could be way better. I have always liked his vocal style though, and so I really liked that he tried something new. Instrumentally this was their best album.

  • eternium Deathbed's recordings are really impressive too. Antpile's are decent but they're still so amazing live. Some Mistakes' EP is excellent quality too and they're probably my favorite local band.

    December 11 04:03 PM
  • eternium A couple on their MySpace.
    December 11 03:53 PM
  • eternium Dude, once you left this crazy ass band came on. Dead in the Dirt. Like, power violence, crust punk, intense as hell. It was insanity. I bought a shirt and CD as soon as they finished.
    December 11 03:45 PM
  • eternium Exactly my problem.
    December 8 05:36 PM
  • eternium I'm currently trying to talk the same people I've been "band talking" with into going with me.
    December 8 05:20 PM
  • eternium Pretty broad range of what hardcore can bring. I googled the address and it seems to be at a strip mall.
    December 8 05:10 PM
  • eternium I'm pretty sure it's inside. You should check out Undertaker, Harsh Truth, and some of the other bands too. Deathbed is also awesome, pretty much worshipping '90s hardcore.
    December 8 04:55 PM
  • eternium Some Mistakes has their own band page and so does Antpile. Deathbed is about to have demos up but I doubt before the show. There's links on the event page on Facebook I think.
    December 6 05:13 PM
  • eternium Definitely wearing my Calculating Infinity hoodie thanks to the cold. It's a hardcore show, it's a huge hang out. Saw Bad last Friday and they're a pretty decent straight forward hardcore band.
    December 6 05:06 PM
  • eternium I'm leaving for the place right after I get out of school and will have to leave when it's done. Probably gonna wear a band shirt but I haven't decided what band.
    December 6 04:45 PM
  • eternium Can't wait man.
    December 6 04:36 PM
  • eternium Oh yeah. It's an individually owned venue, none of that corporate crap with corporate rules.
    December 5 10:31 PM
  • eternium You still planning on going? It's this Friday.
    December 5 07:07 PM
  • eternium Road trips are always fun. I've seen half of the bands that are playing so I can promise you a good time.
    November 29 09:42 PM
  • eternium Dude, it's on a Friday.
    November 29 09:27 PM
  • Kimm Haha yeah I saw Pittman and instantly made the connection.
    November 1 03:38 PM
  • Kimm Hey brah. Thanks for the Happy Birthday shout. My day was pretty awesome.How are you doing? Bad Friday I see. Hopefully the rest of the weekend is good to you.

  • fr33convict oh. idk. it's moments that are kinda NIN but it's mainly inspired by Above
    October 21 08:52 PM
  • fr33convict ... Trance?
    October 21 06:33 PM
  • fr33convict when it's all done. i got a bunch of people immediately and then no one else joined up :(
    October 21 06:27 PM
  • fr33convict i doubt anyone on there is besides waior haha. and it's a doomy katatonia inspired alternative song.
    October 21 06:22 PM
  • fr33convict look at my newest list. i wrote six songs and am trying to get six sputnikers to record their vocals.
    October 21 06:17 PM
  • fr33convict waiting for responses from the vocalists for the "fantastical sputnik collaboration".
    October 21 06:14 PM
  • fr33convict sooo bored. sup?
    October 21 06:07 PM
  • ShadowAmI if you're asking whether either/or is similar to elliott smith's s/t then yeah, either/or is probably his closest sounding to the s/t. i think either/or is a little bit poppy compared to the self titled while the self titled is raw emotion. you definitely need to listen to it either way its basically perfect.
    October 12 08:13 PM
  • Kimm Rhapsody of Fire is cool. A friend showed them to me a while ago, they have a really unique sound! Check out their song Rain of a Thousand Flames.
    September 24 05:23 PM
  • Kimm Aletheian, Extol, Rhapsody of Fire. Get to it, my friend.
    September 24 02:54 PM
  • Kimm I love metalcore. I mean, a lot of people say the music I listen to is generic, and to be honest, a lot of it is. But who cares? If a band like As I Lay Dying is considered generic, then by all means I will listen to generic music. Check out my last note and tell me what you think of those bands?
    September 24 02:37 PM
  • Kimm Yep. I agree. I think a lot of people from my parents' generation think of metal as it was when it first became a "thing" you know? I think that my parents in particular think "Black Sabbath" right away haha. But I mean, why can't a band take a style of music that reaches to a lot of kids and offer a message of a godly worldview and a Christ centered message rather than one of anger and despair? I think it's great.
    September 24 02:28 PM
  • Kimm Some people do. I wouldn't say my church necessarily has a stance on it, although I'm sure the general concensus would be that it isn't more or less beneficial. It's been a huge debate between my parents and I since I got into it. Personally I don't care. I don't follow everything that my particular church teaches, I follow what God's Word leads me to believe. I think with touchy issues as Christian metal, there is room for personal discretion and speculation.
    September 23 09:38 PM
  • Kimm I apologize for the poor spelling and grammar in my last post...I'm really tired.
    September 21 12:41 AM
  • Kimm It's very much focussed on biblical worship and teachings. Which is surprisingly not the primary focus of most churches today. Sundays we have church kn the morning and the evening, we believe in the Sabbath so no work or shopping etc. We songs hymns in church, most people wear a suit or a skirt or dress or whatever. It sounds different when I explain it haha but yeah it's much more structured and based on theology. A lot of churches seem tothink that doctrine isn't important.
    September 21 12:40 AM
  • Kimm United Reformed. And before we stumble into any common misconceptions, NO that is not the same as United. It's very traditional.
    September 18 10:20 PM
  • Kimm It's not too personal at all. General though. What would you like to know?
    September 17 11:36 PM
  • Kimm I think you'd be quite surprised actually.
    September 16 11:06 PM
  • Kimm Hey it's Kimmypants I made a new account. Four of my six lists got taken down sooo yeah. It's good to know you're a Christian too! I wish more people could see the truth of who we are.
    September 16 01:52 AM
  • Kimmypants I'm not sure who they were with man. But I would have gone regardless just to see Thrice had I been able to. It seems the best shows always happen when I'm out of town. Missed August Burns Red because I was in Seattle when they came to my city.

  • climactic Okay sounds good
    September 6 07:26 PM
  • climactic s*** you're right I thought you could send videos but you can only send photos
    September 6 01:05 PM
  • climactic Hm. We could just do facebook
    September 6 01:11 AM
  • climactic Yeah do you have AIM? Might make things easier
    September 6 12:59 AM
  • eternium Mainly yeah. Yours is good, especially the intro, but some parts are off for sure. Try a mix between that tab and what you did.
    September 6 12:20 AM
  • eternium ...that's like completely different from how I play it.
    September 6 12:01 AM
  • climactic Well, I learned it, I don't know how we're gonna record them and put them together though

  • climactic Idk I like Fortress better, but I've also listened to it a hell of a lot more
    August 26 11:20 PM
  • climactic Yeah it doesn't seem too hard but it's great
    August 25 10:14 PM
  • climactic I know Bloodmeat and Sequoia Throne perfectly, and was gonna start learning Heretics and Killers tomorrow
    August 25 10:06 PM
  • climactic Oh man that'd be sweet, I'll look into it
    August 25 09:47 PM
  • climactic Nah I don't but it's probably not too hard to find one
    August 25 07:43 PM
  • climactic Gotcha. I've been meaning to put up some Protest the Hero drum covers, I'll let you know when/if I do.
    August 25 07:05 PM
  • climactic The Selkies cover is awesome! Only constructive criticism I got is: work on the bends during the solo, and turn up when you record covers, it was hard to hear your guitar during the heavy parts. I know Blood Red Summer on guitar too hahah it's so easy but fun
    August 25 06:56 PM
    August 25 06:51 PM
  • climactic Hell yeah bro I'll look at your youtube
    August 25 06:46 PM
  • Zizzer Yeah, all three are albums that have grown on me from "meh" to awesome. It's the kind of music that is better when you know what's coming up next if that makes sense.
    August 22 04:17 PM
  • Zizzer For The National start with Alligator, then Boxer, then High Violet. All three are very very good and the reason I recommend them in that order is because they each kind of represent a particular time in life starting with late adolescence in Alligator.
    August 18 03:18 PM
  • eternium Welcome. Just tell me what you think and if you want more after listening a few times.
    August 10 05:36 PM
  • eternium Just go with those post-metal albums first. Neurosis - Given to the Rising would be a good start.
    August 10 05:28 PM
  • eternium The genre as a whole is definitely a grower. Maybe you should get into metal a little more and then try The Ocean again. Precambrian is a masterpiece imo, even though it's not as important as the other albums I listed.
    August 10 05:10 PM
  • eternium The vocals take getting used to. If you can handle Jacob Bannon, you can handle Aaron Turner. Eventually you learn to love the power of the vocals. Essential post-metal albums include Panopticon and Oceanic by Isis, Salvation by Cult of Luna, and a good dose of Neurosis.
    August 10 04:52 PM
  • eternium Did you ever listen to that Isis album? You need post-metal!
    August 9 10:47 PM
  • eternium I don't think you NEED a head, cab, and PA, but I dunno. There's honestly nothing that I want to do more than make music and I'll be happy as long as I have enough money to live off of. If I do production at AIM, then I should be able to do that at a small label/studio, hopefully, if I don't already have a band going.
    August 9 10:08 PM
  • eternium I just kind of hope that I'll have some kind of income for better guitar stuff and somewhere to live. I highly doubt the school can hook people up with jobs, like the website says, in this economy.
    August 9 09:42 PM
  • eternium Still gotta finish my last year of high school, which just began today. Then maybe we'll be schoolmates.
    August 9 09:12 PM
  • eternium Oh yeah, I've been there a few times.
    August 9 08:57 PM
  • eternium Gainesville, which is about 50 miles north of Atlanta.
    August 9 12:09 AM
  • eternium All I have is my guitars, my amp, a couple of pedals, and a keyboard that I don't know how to play.
    August 8 12:58 AM
  • eternium Jesus that's a lot of pedals. You should really try getting a tube amp. Probably a good idea to get a cab and then get a decent tube head when you can. That's what I've been thinking about doing, being that I don't have a job.
    August 7 04:24 PM
  • eternium Isis - Panopticon, listen as soon as you can. I'd have more pedals if I could afford it. I've been debating on getting a cab or not, since my amp is a Peavey ValveKing 112 combo. It's loud as s***, but I don't know if it's loud enough to gig since I never have before. Other than that, I want a DL4 for delay and a Boss RV-5 for reverb. I have a noise suppressor and chorus pedal.
    August 7 12:17 AM
  • eternium That is a lot like what I want to do. A diverse band, but something that basically explores metalcore (the Converge/Botch kind) and post-metal. Something that would allow fast, dissonant, and heavy music to work beside the slow, pretty, and atmospheric, often mixing those adjectives.
    August 7 12:07 AM
  • eternium What kind of music is it that you want to play?
    August 6 11:47 PM
  • bailar11 oh yes. you know the of the enrique well. enrique will release that album when he finishes his touring for the pcoming crunkcore one. the music is all made, it just needs to be released slowly to the public, for they cant handle so much new enrique at once.
    August 6 09:38 PM
  • bailar11 yes i am. seemed more appropriate to leave you a shout. much better than a plain old comment in a thread.
    August 6 09:19 PM
  • bailar11 naw it was a bug in the old system that let you make reviews that rating.
