  • DivergentThinking I'm a Yeoman out in Japan... I used to be on the Arleigh Burke, a Destroyer back in the U.S. I've been in the Navy since 2016 :]

  • SymbolicInTime I'd be willing to if I didn't already change it once haha, I try to go by Sym though. Sorry, friend

  • Jacquibim lol Andcas will live on in our sepia-tone (golden?) memories.
    April 22 02:57 PM
  • Jacquibim Not much man. Site's quieter these days and I'm nowhere near as active, but it's better than the toxic hellhole it was a couple years ago. And don't worry about the classical slice, I still live and die by the riff m/m/m/
    April 22 02:39 PM
  • parksungjoon maybe i did jump the gun, all i can really say in my defense is that theres still way too many metalheads posting hot takes like that without any of the self awareness you have, so its easy for me to mistake it for that
    April 22 02:14 PM
  • parksungjoon as for originality i agree that its not necessarily a good thing. but the older i get and the more music i hear, its really hard to enjoy things that arent particularly original. if anything i would say that listening to weird obscure genres has been a bigger gamechanger for me than just mining everything in metal. im not a fan of mindless classic worshipping either, there are plenty of bands most rock and metal fans consider really up there that i think are generic and uninteresting.
    April 22 02:05 PM
  • parksungjoon i also think the metal scene has a huge problem with posturing, ive been on the internet so long that im tired of people saying slightly less popular bands are better than mega popular bands and acting like thats just some trvth that anyone whos trve will get. i dont care what people like or dont like, but its really dumb how hard some people try to seem cool because they dont like certain things... and ive heard every band they namedrop, usually
    April 22 01:56 PM
  • parksungjoon what can i say, im bored and not feeling very patient. you can think im some elitist if you want, but ive had plenty of constructive and civil disagreements on here, its all a matter of how people frame things. if you want to be fast and loose and act like you don't care because its the internet, thats how youre gonna be treated. if you want a more nuanced conversation with respect for taste and all, its possible, but not if you pretend you dont care
    April 22 01:52 PM
  • parksungjoon nothing personal about it, i would have said the same to anyone else making those claims in that manner. if you act like youre some expert back it up, if not try some humility
    April 22 01:42 PM
  • Pangea Thanks! i like yours too

    August 16 10:02 AM
  • Jacquibim Also that's embarrassing but not as embarrassing as Colors having the same average too
    August 11 10:13 AM
  • Jacquibim Not really man it's okay but it's kinda like Monolith has just been streamlined, watered down and repackaged, also Travis is relying waaay too much on those pseudo-cleans now.

  • Wizard Scale the Summit are not dm, they're a techy instrumental band this site JIZZZZZZZZZZZESSSSSSSSS over and all I hear is a complete mastubatory, Chuck Schuldiner guitar clinic.
    March 25 12:09 PM
  • Wizard Hey Simbolic, do you love Death's 'Symbolic'? Go listen to Scale the Summit's 'The Collective' and tell me you don't hear Schuldiner's amazing riffage!

  • Jacquibim A nice seafood dinner, lit some candles, had a little sweet talk, had a LOT of wine, gracefully forayed to the ensuite and the rest is pretty self explanatory.

    August 27 07:00 PM
  • Epicenter Nice to see someone else agrees with me on Koloss.
    August 25 11:19 PM
  • Jacquibim If your review is good enough then people will take it seriously. Yeah, you'll get a few morons but it's worth a shot.
    August 24 08:27 AM
  • Jacquibim Who cares what others think though? I got negged to s*** by angry fanboys but it doesn't bother me.
    August 24 08:02 AM
  • Jacquibim Dude just write your own review, after all my review is just my opinion, no matter how "objective" I try and be.
    August 24 07:37 AM
  • Jacquibim Yeah I said they're superficial and pretty, not that they're interesting or good.
    August 24 07:16 AM
  • Jacquibim Oh and I never used the word "good" to describe the synths.
    August 24 07:11 AM
  • Jacquibim It's because the synthesisers sound tacked on and ultimately lose their luster damn fast. By "fleshing them out" I don't mean ignoring them, it just means they're not that interesting once the bells and whistles have worn off you.
    August 24 07:08 AM
  • Emyay yeah i hate broad generalizations like that
    August 23 03:05 PM
  • Emyay yeah i see what you're saying man. i don't think its fair to hate on a band just bc they "chug". i certainly wouldn't dismiss a band for that mere fact. i agree that boo takes cues from meshuggah, sure. i just think meshuggah is a lot better, although i did think the discovery was pretty great.
    August 23 02:34 PM
  • ChuckyTruant You suck.
    August 8 03:27 PM
  • Jacquibim sim pls u no i wud nvr do anythin 2 hurt u
    August 8 07:01 AM
  • ChuckyTruant Did it ever occur to you that everyone says that what's Meshuggah is great at for a reason? Jac was right you have been on a steady decline since you joined.
    August 8 05:27 AM
  • ChuckyTruant No you took what I said and ignored it lol. Are you 12? Grow up
    August 8 04:37 AM
  • Vakarian12 You gettin' my messages or is plug ****ing up?
    August 7 02:27 AM
  • Jacquibim Just the pretentious tone and wannabe elite opinions, and the way he reacts to certain users (eg. me), didn't take long for me to catch on.Have a look at my latest list actually, he admits he's Snoxall.

    July 30 03:10 AM
  • pyroflare77 That was a very thorough album preview, mind you, and I didn't like the fifteen minutes of music I heard. I wouldn't be able to stomach listening to a full release of Born of Osiris anyway. Of course it may be unfair, but it's more fair than rating it based on a snippet of one song, for example.
