Euronymous, incidentally, was murdered by bandmate Count Grishnackh. Meanwhile, one member of Emperor was convicted of murdering a homosexual guy, numerous black metallers burnt down churches, and I believe there was one who was charged with murdering some homeless bloke ...
We talked about the craziness of the Norwegian and Swedish black metal scene in my rock history course a couple weeks ago. Like you said, there's some fucked up things that went on over there.

We decided it's because they're cold all the time. Even more so than Minnesota.

That sounds exactly like this guy. He's funny when he goes off on tangents, but when he's talking about the course material, he drives me insane.

Erk, I'd better reassemble these albums... I've got some of the songs in the sampler folders and some in the album folders...


Most of the time when I cut tracks, they were ones I thought I'd included on your CD. For a few albums though, I just chose select tracks that I think are the best or most representative - for example, I'm pretty sure I gave that treatment to Up The Downstair. I honestly expected to be able to include more of the band's discography on one CD than I ultimately could!

Not sure what else you've heard. I think I saw you mention Fear and In Absentia, so if that's it so far, I'd add Deadwing, too.
It's on the list

I'm about to take a trip through Voyage 34.

The complete trip.

See you on the other side.

That would've been awesome. I understand there was at one point almost a small scale war between the Norwegian and Finnish black metal scenes. And the Norwegian black metallers didn't like the Swedish death metallers, but that feeling never seemed to be mutual, what with all the Swedish blackened death bands out there. Personally, I tend to think death metal is generally better, but black metal's best moments beat death metal's best. And I imagine not many people on this thread could even distinguish between black and death metal, so why am I rambling on ...?

Ooh, that'll be interesting. I hope you don't get too shocked when you meet yourself coming up a down escalator.

I need to play Voyage 34 again one of these days.

Yeah, I support this too. Deadwing's my favourite of the three latest albums, actually. The title track, Lazarus, Arriving Somewhere, Mellotron Scratch, Glass Arm Shattering, and the 2005 version of She's Moved On are made of win.

I've actually never listened to this thing all the way through, for whatever reason. But I'm determined to now.

I've only done it once, and that was about two years ago now. Might be an interesting way to pass one of my upcoming flights ...

Yep, and I'm tired and get extra-rambly at times like this!

I couldn't resist the PT discussion...

Deadwing is undoubtedly my favorite of the last three! followed by Fear and then In Absentia I think. What should I get next? Stupid Dream?

Even Less
