To be honest it kinda reminds me of Man-O-War. The good classic-sounding rock with no profanity in the lyrics.

I can definitely see that. Especially with a sprinkle of Rob Halford thrown in. Their vocalist can hit some crazy high notes!

 Orden Ogan is another good band I found recently, in the same vein. I guess I was on a drunk power metal binge, lol.

Been on a bit of a death metal kick lately, mainly just stuff I used to listen to a lot but haven't recently since I sold off most my metal CDs around ten years ago. Been buying some of them back, the ones I like the most.

Arsis - A Celebration of Guilt
Autopsy - Severed Survival
Nile - In Their Darkened Shrines
Depresy - A Grand Magnificence
Children of Bodom - Hatebreeder (always thought of it as kinda power metal but I guess people say it's melodeath? I dunno)
Demilich - Nespithe

I also bought Death's Leprosy and Individual Thought Patterns (my two favorites of ol' Chuck's) but had to settle for Relapse reissues, which I found out upon arrival that they're remastered and actually sound supremely shitty, so I sent 'em back. I previously had the Century Media reprints so I might have to track those down on Discogs unless original pressings are affordable.

Never sell off the stuff you think you outgrew because the older you get, the more childlike you are, and all those fun things become relevant again.

I also started a new job a month ago where I work with the guitar player for Tipper Gore–lambasted '80s shock rockers Impaler, and that's pretty badass. I think our talks about music is what resparked my interest in metal.

Oh yeah, and also:
meat

Soda as well.

I'll say! Congratulations on your new job. Hope it woks out for you for quite some time  :)

Thanks. My previous job was rapidly swirling down the toilet to the point where they didn't have money for payroll, so I had to get out before suddenly there was no job to go to.

Children of Bodom - Hatebreeder (always thought of it as kinda power metal but I guess people say it's melodeath? I dunno)


I always wondered the same. I always thought of it as power metal with Gothenburg-style vocals. Hatebreeder was a banger, though. My favorite, mostly because of the sound production. Black Widow was my gateway into CoB.

Same with In Their Darkened Shrines for Nile. Nile's gold standard for me. Sarcophagus is still my all-time favorite song of theirs. I didn't think of it until now, but their sound was similarly raw when compared to CoB's Hatebreeder. Both bands still sounded cool with more "modern" production, but nothing beats their earlier stuff.

Heard something tonight that sort of blew my mind. I've heard of Oingo Boingo, but I'm definitely not familiar with them. Then this song came along:



This is right up there with Siouxie and the Banshees and Devil Master as far as stuff I never knew I needed in my life. Good god, this is awesome.

It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

Oingo Boingo's got some good stuff. I particularly like their first two albums.

I had a chance to go see COB, wish I had. I was supposed to go with my sister but was too tired from work; who knew Alexi Laiho would die a few years later. She's got a cool pic with him. They definitely ramped up the bombastic production on FTR and HCDR. Still good, but Hatebreeder is my jam for its sounds and compositions.

Nile's ITDS was a gateway album for me. I'd already heard and loved Opeth's Blackwater Park and that's what got me into death metal, but Nile was just so raw and powerful, more straight-up death than prog. I picked up ITDS and t.A.T.u.'s debut on the same day, haha. Both had heavy rotation (2003, I think?).

Yeah, they did the theme song for the movie Weird Science. Danny Elfman was in that band before he went solo. Surprised me when I first heard of it.

Yeah I liked both Hatebreeder and ITDS for their relatively raw production sounds. Hatebreeder sounded like vintage 80s metal, and ITDS definitely sounded like a step back into old-school DM. Both are my absolute favorites of those respective two bands.

Yeah, they did the theme song for the movie Weird Science. Danny Elfman was in that band before he went solo. Surprised me when I first heard of it.

That's how I found their Dead Man's Party song, lol. I had Weird Science on my playlist, and Spotify lead me to an awesome recommendation, for once!  ;D I still listen to that song daily.

Here's my newest like:

I know that song! I've had it on my PC for a few years now. Ultimately I like this one better then the rendition done by Great Big Sea. I'm just not into certain types of folk music I guess.

Ooh, I'll have to check out that version, too. Didn't know it was a cover, but it makes sense because it really does sound kinda folksy. I'll have to check it out for sheer curiosity.

Great Big Sea did the cover. Slade is the original British group that wrote the tune back in 1984. I learned something new today  :)

Ha! I'm surprised. The Slade version, at least to me, sounds adapted from something else.
