    That's right, i'm still here!

    With the popularity of my two previous different sets of compilations, I decided to take a chance on a third, but directed towards a much smaller audience. That's right, it's time to shine the spotlight on the doomsters! To my complete surprise, the 'Buried In The North' set I built for 'Old School' Canadian Death Metal has been well received and has accumulated over 150 downloads (That's good for me with the lack of promotion that I actually do). That was actually my secondary build as my first sets (Which are actually still growing and up to Volume 10 as of this writing) were the dreaded Nu/Alternative Metal area. Yeah, that's right... I LIKE that type of music. Deal with it! But that had a good level of popularity too, as the first 5 volumes of those sets accumulated over 200 downloads each and the later volumes are starting to pick up speed as well. …
  • The Path To Musical Evolution 1.1.0: A Mish-Mash Of Sorts Pt. 2

    DISCLAIMER: The following text is probably rife with errors and bad taste.

    Of course, one can not expect a fan of a musical style to always start with the originator's of a genre. As such, I've also been delving into these fellows and what they've since become. Some weeks ago I discovered 's Mysticum, one of the oldest originators of the style. Sadly, I find myself biased - I only seem to enjoy In the Streams of Inferno. It is partially at fault for my inability to truly love the rest of their work as well, as nothing seems to top it's ferocity. Similarly, people have such an issue with Godflesh. Their debut album Streetcleaner seems to be untoppable to many of their detractors. I admit that I love Streetcleaner much more than Slavestate, for example. But is it our nature to merely try and dwell on what we liked best rather than accepting something new? The two albums sound nothing alike…
  • THE BLUE WALL: Industrial Metal

    Industrial Radio

    Industrial metal is a musical genre that draws from industrial music and heavy metal, using repeating metal guitar riffs, sampling, synthesizer or sequencer lines, and distorted vocals.Founding industrial metal groups include Ministry, Godflesh, and KMFDM.Eventually it reached a mass audience, led by the "one-man-band" Nine Inch Nails.

    Industrial metal's new-found popularity led to some criticism from other artists associated with the industrial scene. Subsequently, it is most well-known in various European permutations. Industrial metal groups have produced many acclaimed music videos, and the impact of the style has been reflected in many other genres of music, including hardcore punk, glam metal, and hip-hop.

  • THE BLUE WALL: Doom Metal

    My Doom Radio

    Revelling in tension, despair, and dread, Doom Metal prizes atmosphere more than many of Metals other primary subgenres. Doom uses plodding tempos, repeated chords, and thick, distorted, down-tuned guitars to attempt to envelope the listener in a wash of desperate foreboding that can commonly last to the ten minute mark and beyond. Instruments generally keep to the standard guitar, bass, and drums, but it is not unusual to add keyboard passages and backdrops.

    Doom vocals can be in any of the predominant Metal styles, but all share a determined attempt to invoke emotional hopelessness and mental anguish. This is further amplified by the lyrical themes of grief, depression, fear, resentment, and suffering that are hallmarks of the style.

    The roots of Doom Metal are considered to have been planted in the early 70s work of Black Sabbath. In the early and mid-80s, European artists like Witchfinder General and Candlemass adopted the Doom sound as a full fledged genre unto itself…

    A Guide to Doom Metal: Part VII: Gothic and Other Miscellaneous Doom

    Well its been a while since my last post but I've had a whirlwind of a time since then. We come to my final guides to Doom Metal (FINALLY!), basically
    touching on everything that I haven't touched or missed along the way. This shall commence with a mini guide Gothic Doom, a genre which I'm quite negative on
    but does have a couple good bands. I like reading your comments and I hope you'll like this guide.

    Gothic Doom

    Evereve: When so many bands seem content to wallow in sentiment, Evereve were one of the few that revelled in genuine emotion. This German band's first two albums are some of the most tormented, emotional and tempestuous Metal albums I've ever listened to. The emotions range from anger to despair and every emotion in between and the music follows along the same path. Sadly vocalist Tom Sedotschenko committed suicide in 1998 and while the band is still active, the music doesn't hold a candle to what they did while he was alive. …
