Offense: +100. Armor: 0.
I always thought Acid Witch's Witchtanic Hellucinations was loud as crap but last night I tried to listen to it again but as good as the music itself is the mixing did nothing but cause aural pain. It is such a f***ing shame
So, like many of you no doubt, I have about an hour's round trip drive sometimes more in my van. My six CD changer has constant rotation. Here's what's playing now:
Clutch (back in good form)
Cult of Luna (forgot how much I liked CUL-it's taken me several spins to process tho!)
Swans (my new obsession)
Ratt:(yeah, go ahead, make fun of me-it's a guilty pleasure-listen I was 18 in 1984! I will still say, Out of the Cellar and MC's Shout at the Devil are classics.....In all seriousness, as a HR album, this newest release is pretty enjoyable-kind of Beach Boy's frivilous, bubbly and light-but there you go)
I don't know a lot about DM, but I know what I like and I like this kind of old school sound. Martin Van Drunen is about my favorite DM vox.
Kreator:(OK-this thing flat out rocks)
I was -3 years old in 1982... LOLLL
Quite right brother. You and I were there at the beginning. We literally lived through the origins of metal unlike these upstarts......
I recall my 60's parents playing the Who, The Beatles, CCR, Dylan, The Stones in real time on reel to reel tapes-sometimes on the same reel.
I meant rather that by today's standards, those who were, uh 3 or unborn in 1982 might find Ratt a little buggle gum.
But, taking your point, Ratt as evidenced by the AWESOME Mickey Rourke movie-The Wrestler, is kind of Strip Club rock.
Which makes me think that the music and culture you grew up w/ is life defining. But, being of the same generation, total sidebar, Mikey Rourke who reaffirmed his greatness in my mind in that movie is IMO one of the great tragic American actors-if you think he's a washed up old dude, check out Diner, Rumble Fish, Angel Heart , The Year of the Dragon-also from the same time period.
OK-I just realized that was totally off topic-living through the 80's-must be my early onset demenita.
I got really excited for Disarm the Descent after hearing In Due Time. Can't wait to check the album out!
