But I must pull through. The Second Raid and Fumoffu are the only KyoAni shows I haven't seen yet, as far as I know. I must watch them as a KyoAni fan, and pull through this GONZO crap.
Edit:
Also need to watch Munto, Haruhi Suzumiya-chan and Chuunibyou Lite.
I don't need to see much more than you smily_headphones1.gif

Depressed now that I think about it................

"Why not do them now if you're so depressed?"

Meh, tomorrow....
Sounds like my schedule for winter break. But I have an excuse since I was sick for half of it tongue.gif

It is not JUST 1.1. It is the even more updated Blu Ray release which is 1.11 with even more revamps.(tiny bit more)
At least you were honest with yourself unlike any of us here on what we wished to do and what we actually did

It is of a very nice and cool Ultimate Madoka figurine unboxing and pictures. I found this to be a very nice looking one.
Wow, that looks like a lot of money just bit the dust...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

;-P

 

 

 

Earth - Hex; Or Printing In The Infernal Method

 

Drone Doom/Stoner/Post-Rock/Country

One of my favourite bands. On their previous album, Pentastar: In the Style Of Demons (also worth listening to, also because it has the only studio tracks with vocals), they started moving from noisy Drone Doom to cleaner, psychodelic Stoner. This one is even cleaner, moving the music even to the fields of Post-Rock and has kind of a Country vibe to it. However it still has its heavy, dark Doom/Stoner Metal foundation. It's just climatic.

As a friend of mine said about one of the tracks: "If Satan starred in a Western movie, this could be his theme song". ;-)

 

 

 

 

Nasum - Human 2.0

 

Grindcore

What to say? Considered one of the masterpieces of the genre, this may be a good starting point. However, Grind is Grind - certainly, such brutal and chaotic music just isn't for everyone.

Sadly, the band won't be releasing anything anymore since thir frontman, Mieszko Talarczyk, died in 2004 during vacation in Thailand. :-(

 

 

 

 

Abney Park - Lost Horizons


Darkwave/Synthpop/Goth/Steampunk

A rather interesting record. Steampunk is a small scene and none of the bands is really known, so there are some heally hidden gems in there. This band is one of them, if you ask me. Also, there is no "Steampunk" music as a genre - it's more of a scene with bands that are more or less similar with their image, lyrics and overall "climate". Not that far from let's say Visual kei, where we have from Pop Rock to Speed Metal grouped together.
But what is the album itself? It's based on Gothic Rock and Synthpop. However. the "steampunkishness" makes the band mix it - mostly with folk elements, but also soundtrack'y music ("Airship Pirates") or Dark Cabaret ("Herr Drossmeyer's Doll"). It actually makes an interesting combination and is not the end of their creativity...




Cattle Decapitation - Monolith Of Inhumanity


Deathgrind

One of my most recent findings. This album is supposedly their best and while I don't know the rest, this one surely makes it to my top of the year.
The album itself it's a fusion of Death Metal of the more technical side and Grindcore. I'm not really a fan of that, but while it has its worse moments, it doesn't bore me like many of the band's not-so-good peers. Vocals can be a turn-off for some, though.

Also, watch out if you decide to check it on YouTube. As most of you could tell from the title, "Forced Gender Reassignment" video is basically a gore flick and if I'm not mistaken, it should be banned from there. However, such things sometimes don't stop people from uploading it anyway...





Ephel Duath - The Painter's Palette


Jazz Metal/Fusion/Heavy Prog

Again, one of my favourite albums. It's a great mixture of the heavier flavour of Progressive Metal and Jazz, but not only: The harsh (there are clean ones, too) vocals are more core'ish and the drums often play things usually associated with IDM and other kinds of "crazy" electronics.
Frankly, this is one of the few albums I'd actually call flawless.




Sick Of It All - Nonstop (or XXV Nonstop, depending on the source)


NYC Hardcore

OK, I know some of you may not like listening to compilations, and this is one of them. And not only that - all songs are re-recordings. While it can be considered almost a blasphemy by a few people, I actually like it.
The band plays New York Hardcore and is one of the most classic ones from the scene. Nothing less, nothing more.




Devin Townsend - Ziltoid The Omnicient


Progressive Metal/Rock Opera

OK, this one is REALLY interesting. What would you say about a sci-fi Rock (or Metal) Opera about... Ziltoid The Omnicient, an alien overlord coming to Earth requesting an "Ultimate Cup Of Coffee". After tasting it, he calls it "fetid" and declares a war on Earth. Already interested? What if I tell you it's a great showcase of superb musicianship, songwiting, humour and eclecticness?
GET IT!

 

 

 

 

Dr. Steel - The Dr. Steel Collection


Rap/Industrial/Ragtime/Steampunk

Yet another steampunk artist (and another compilation), but this time one that bases his works on Rap/Hip-Hop instead of Gothic Rock. However he combines it with a bit of Industrial, some Ragtime and Dark Cabaret. Also, his musical persona is VERY interesting: somewhere between a dictator and mad genius like ones being the villians in James Bond movies.
One upon a time, he worked in a toy factory and was very proud of his creations. However, his designs weren't to the liking of stupid factory bosses and they fired the Good Doctor. As he took his revange, bombing the place, he had a vision. A vision of conquering the world with his toy army, uniting it and building an Utopian Playground. Will you help him? 

 

 

 

 

Kvelertak - Kvelertak


Black'n'Roll/Hardcore

Some time ago, Tilpo asked me for some "distorted Rock". Honestly, this would kinda fit and I regret I haven't tried it back then.
What is it? Black Metal mixed with Punk/Hardcore with a hint of Rock'n'Roll. And the black metal part is mostly in harsh vocals and some viking-like melodies. This album is pure fun, energy, ass-kicking and moshpit. TRY IT!

 

 

 

 

 


Om - Advaitic Songs


Psychodelic/Stoner Doom Metal

This one was quite a surprise. The band had its own style, based on a trance'y combination of bass, drums and voice. With their slow, floydish, oriental and even meditational songs they became one of my most loved bands and suddenly... they expanded. Often it's a good thing, and here?
Well... I have mixed feelings - they don't sound the same. If you ask me, they were build around this minimalism and trance-inducing low end... And while they aren't that far from that, it just sounds like a drastic change for me and some other fans.
But does it make the music bad? No way, it's probably my AOTY...

 

Oh, and if you want some more classic Om, listen to At Giza from Conference Of The Birds or the album Variations On A Theme...

 

 

 

 

 

What We Feel - Our 14 Words


Hardcore

Some of my other recent finds. A Russian antifa (the title itself is kind of an answer for the nazi slogan of 14 words) Hardcore band. Looks like it's some side-project of some musicians from their anti-nazi scene. Tried it out of curiosity and quickly started to like it. One of the reasons is that the album has lots of guests and some covers, so while it's mostly a HC album, it features some different subgenres (some classical HC, some more melodic one, some Oi/Street Punk etc.) and not only - it even has full-fledeged Rap tracks because they feature Moscow Death Squad and some other underground rappers I don't remember now. Worth checking if there are any fans of Hardcore...

 

 

 

 

And I could go on and on... But maybe not at the moment... ;-)

 

 

 

I am not really into the genre that those bands cover. I am a fan of the general genre that they cover but not the specific ones. I like rock, I really like hard rock/punk rock but heavy metal is a hit and miss for me.

What was so bad about S1?

Well, KyoAni didn't make it for one.
Secondly, the plot and characters felt really quite shallow, whereas that was not at all the case in S2. Finally, it had a predictable plot twist that kinda ruined it for me.

senjou no banana. amazing series.

post #47151 of 126403
First episodes of winter season have been released of multiple seasons.
If I still have the willpower I'll watch those after my Fumoffu marathon. Time is now 23:30. 12 episodes to go. ETA 4:30.

I will quit all communications with you guys, since otherwise I might not make it.

I'll do a rewatch in 2 years to fully know what you are talking about. All I remember was cool mech, battle ship, comedic slice of life. Etc.
