Yes. I rather like Brave Murder Day but I know you'd hate it.

I'm listening to Last Fair Deal Gone Down.

I've listened to a bit of their more recent heavy alt rock-ish albums, but not a tremendous deal. The death metal era was better.

I used to get all macho Canadian-esque and tsk at stuff like that. But it's all a matter of what people are used to.

My mom, who used to live here in Canuckia, now resides in Ireland. She said the coldest it's been there was -3C and everyone was freaking out. She's been there long enough now that I think now, if she came over for a Canadian winter. She'd likely freak out

That's what my friend who burned me this album told me. I told him I don't like the death growl. He told me to imagine it's not a voice, but just another guitar. I told him I couldn't, and he just laughed and shook his head in hopelessness.

Alot of growl vocals in Brave Murder Day, except for day.

I think my favourite song from that album is Inside the Fall.

My mother grew up in Wainuiomata, which has quite cold winters by southern North Island standards. Rarely snow, but routinely below freezing overnight. But now she lives in Queensland and complains that 20C is too cold!

I'm trying to get my hardy Wellingtonian side back. It's not just about the cold temperature: it's about the wind chill from the southerlies off the Antarctic!

I wish Death Metal would get rid of the death growl. Honestly it adds nothing. Axver will disagree but I'm with you Andrew.

That's one interesting bit of common ground between shoegazer (which I'm still on a big kick for) and death metal, in that the vocals serve an instrumental, aesthetic purpose.

But not everybody's into the aesthetic, and that's cool.

I love the shoegazer vocals though.

Yeah, and I wish progressive rock would get rid of the guitars. Honestly, it adds nothing. You could do it all on piano anyway.

Seriously, what's the point in getting rid of a key part of the aesthetic?
