    The future looks bright! Totally swiping that to share on my social mediaz.

    Not too impressed by any of the new stuff this week. The Green Carnation, Mekong Delta and Winterfylleth are all decent but don't really tug on my earstrings enough to keep listening repeatedly.

    Did anyone ever grab the entire third Vandallus album off Bandcamp?

    Kinda digging this mellow heavy metal tune and the self-aware silliness of the video.

    For me subtract Borknagar and add Insomnium and Omnium Gatherum.

    Borknagar, Insomnium, Lucifer, and Voivod are definitely bands I want to check out that day. Looks like it starts just as I get off work for the week, so that's cool.

    They're going to keep the stream available for 25 hours so you should be able to see everyone you want to.

    Thoroughly enjoying this album, if you dig spacious, atmospheric, rustic black metal you might also.



    And another one if you're fond of the throwback raw symphonic black metal that's been thankfully rearing its ugly head again lately.

    Enjoying this one, some groovy progressive mathcore/hardcore/djentcore with huge Gojira-like production and a nice atmospheric undercurrent.

    Took 6 weeks, but At the Movies now takes us to Shermer, Illinois



    Interesting choice, I figured with Pretty In Pink they'd go with If You Leave by OMD

    This has been interesting. They're all pre-recorded performances made specifically for the festival, but they vary in show length. Omnium Gatherum is the only band that actually played on a stage...and they only played one song. Lucifer played three songs. Borknagar just played two: "Voices" and "Up North" from their new album.

    Voivod is about to go on.

    edit: Snake is sorta just sitting by a window in his house, singing into his cellphone. This is surreal but cool:

    Man, Voivod sounded awesome, same with Lucifer, love that cozy sound.

    Sound wasn't that great for Omnium Gatherum or Insomnium but that's because they went with a stage show rather than the jam space or studios like most of the other bands were using. Big difference.

    yeah OG and Insomnium were disappointing. I was super happy with Borknagar's Up North performance though. Whyyyyyyy only 2 songs?? :cry:

    I can't wait for Insomnium's livestream of Winter's Gate in the next couple weeks though, if they are using that stage and setup again I hope the sound is better. :cry::cry:

    New Vassafor track, their last album completely immersed me with its hostile atmosphere, one of my faves the year it came out; this one doesn't sound to be much different, and that cover art effing rules.

    as a quarantine thing carpenter brut put up their disgraceful (but appropriate) version of maniac



    and as a counterpoint the at the movies version



    soon the entirety of the 80s will have a synthwave / at the movies version to compare

    Primal Fear are really cementing their status as the best Judas Priest tribute band out there.

    A new song from their upcoming album, Metal Commando.



    Edit: And Antichrist Demoncore's new album is out. If you're looking for some satanic, straight-edge, vegan grindcore/powerviolence it's right here.

    Ha! Primal Fear has been doing that since their sophomore Nuclear Fire in 1999.

    Why Priest didn't hire him when he tried out is beyond me. Instead we got try-hard Ripper. Ralf-ord has been my go-to Halford for decades (although Firepower by the original article is awesome, respect given). I honestly love the 1999-2002 Primal Fear period just as much as anything by JP other than like Painkiller, Stained Glass, Sin After Sin and Sad Wings of Destiny.

    That said, I liked them a lot better during the Henny Wolter days, they were just more exciting. Still put out good albums from time to time. Also, Henny Wolter-era Primal Fear, one of the most amazing live shows I have ever seen, perfect and powerful.

    New Okkultokrati album is very cool, atmospheric black/punk metal with raucous vocals. The album just sounds like a beautiful murder in the woods.



    And, to no surprise to me, the new Khthoniik Cerviiks album is also great, I have long dubbed these guys the 'black metal Voivod' and this album doesn't let me down in that regards!

    New Ruadh album, if you're into the UKz atmospherics folk/black metalz. The clean male vocals still need a little bit of work but they're fairly powerful and emotive doing that Quorthon thing better than Quorthon did. Overall I'm really enjoying this though.

    Anyone else spinning the new Horn record, Mohngang? Pretty solid Pagan Black Metal from Germany. Only complaint is that sometimes it tries to overextend itself (see the last minute or two of Satt scheint der Sud der Tat, which just feels totally unecessary).

    Hey, everyone. On today's episode of "Recommend Ethel Some Stuff"... Classical music! I'm curious what all of your favorite works of classical music are. Even though I've been playing the piano since I was but a wee lad, I've realized that I'm not terribly well versed in the classical canon. And I'm posting here because it seems like the recommendations I get from classical-buffs tend to be highfalutin stuff that don't actually do much for me, so I figured my hesher friends might do a better job.

    I'll start by submitting my favorite: Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, which is coincidentally (or not so coincidentally) what I've been practicing on the piano for months now. I highly recommend the Decca recording that contains Vladimir Ashkenazy playing the original piano piece and then conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra in his own orchestral arrangement. The Ravel arrangement is far more popular, but I think Ashkenazy's is superior in its authenticity to the vision of the original. Ravel's feels too much like a show piece.

    Beethoven's 7th, 2nd movement, is pretty much the gold standard as far as I've been concerned since piano lessons as a kid. Probably qualifies as highfalutin but it's just real good, so I feel no shame.



    Handel's Sarabande in D minor has some of the best handoffs between the low and high ends of an orchestra that I know of. Dug up this really excellent live version doing some looking around on Youtube.

    Great picks.

    I didn't mean anything disparaging by "highfalutin", it's just that some people seem to discount works like The Nutcracker simply because they're popular. You know, snobbery. It's everywhere. But, regardless, if it's good then it's good.

    i think is good to try a wide mix especially composers that are cool but dont get much play eg granados



    u can always cheat and include some modern stuff from different ends eg ades or reich



    or



    and theres a lot of stuff like dvorak or part that is not hard to listen to but gud. and of course chopin
