I wonder what you'll think of some of it!

It seems Screwtape is the only one to play it so far. I'll be interested in what other people make of it. Screwtape is the kind of person who I thought would be receptive to what I was doing and the music I used, but I don't know just how receptive most people will be.

Bowie also opened up many Heroes Tour shows by playing Warszawa, which meant he was playing keyboards for six minutes to open the show instead of singing.

Awesome.

Now if only U2 would open a gig with Alex Descends or United Colours something. That would be interesting.

Well, I'm really not too well introduced to most of your kind of music, so this will be quite interesting. I usually hear about it without actually hearing it.

But what of the casual fans, Ax?

Ungrateful bastard.

I think this tracklist does a fairly good job of showing the darker side of the music I listen to, especially the second half. I also hope it introduces people to a side of metal they didn't realise existed. Impressions of metal in the popular consciousness are quite divorced from what most of the genre has been doing, at least since 1990 or so. I find almost no metal to like pre-1990.

Interesting. I like little to no metal post-1990.

Edit: Except Trent Reznor.

KHAN!!

You even got two exclamation marks. When was the last time I did that non-sarcastically? Yeah.

And I said I have a couple of Eno albums!

I've not listened to much Joy Division, but you know what song I thought was pretty good? She's Lost Control.

I can't stand John Calipari. I secretly enjoy the video where John Cheney threatens to kill him. Not because I want Calipari to die, but I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't stand him.

I wouldn't consider Reznor metal in the first place!

As far as the pre-1990 thrash, glam, NWOBHM stuff goes, it doesn't appeal. Some of the proto-doom and proto-prog metal is decent.

As for post-1990 metal, my main interests are:

- Death metal, especially the progressive bands (e.g. Opeth and Cynic), though some of the Gothenburg melodic scene is awesome too (looking at you, At The Gates).
- Avantgarde metal primarily rooted in death or black metal, such as Sculptured, Arcturus, and Subterranean Masquerade.
- Middle Eastern metal, namely Orphaned Land and to a lesser extent Melechesh. Orphaned Land rule so fucking much. I'm listening to an acoustic gig they did right now.
- Black metal, especially the atmospheric side from bands like Woods Of Ypres and Wolves In The Throne Room. I'm also a black metal heretic as I like the Christian/unblack metal style of Antestor.

But my two favourites are unclassifiable. Agalloch draw on doom, death, pagan, and black metal to create something extremely atmospheric and incorporate aspects of post-rock too. And Alcest is a marriage of positive black metal with shoegazer that has to be heard to be believed.
