Why the hatred for pirate metal?

If you have to ask...well basically what everyone else said. It's good that most of those dudes have a sense of humor about what they do (please tell me this is true for more than just Alestorm!) but they could just...write/do poo poo that's less gimmicky.

Are there any good metal bands that sing or growl in German? It's a harsh sounding language as is, so I want to see how well it works in metal.

Unheil sings in German, and I think Jack Slater might have some German songs in there. I second Bethlehem. Checked them out because they're on MDF, and holy poo poo.

My itunes/ipod hasn't scrobbled in over a year. I should really just delete Last now...since my computer time doesn't match last, I will never be able to scrobble again. Bummer.

But if I had to guess, my all time top scrobble would be Acid Bath or Agents of Oblivion.

Ghost not coming to North America


This was via Facebook. Complications with visa's, how does this still happen??

Because work visas for the USA are really expensive and hard to get. Normally, you send your passport in three months in advance and don't get visa confirmation until less than a week (usually three days) before the tour starts.

In sum, it's a hot mess and that's why poo poo gets cancelled last minute.

Boots and belt you'd probably find at hot topic or something, I don't really know what they sell there but for some reason that store comes to mind.

If you're going to spend money on hot topic combat boots or something, check out the army/navy stores or drop a little more on some good boots. Hot Topic boots are usually expensive and not comfy for the price and for just a *bit* more you can get some nice boots that'll hold up for a while.

I feel so bad for the tours that play Firestone in Orlando. It's a HUGE venue, it holds like 1300 people, it's almost nearly empty, or half empty and sometimes they have to curtain off half the venue. It almost always sounds like poo poo, unless the engineer has played there before.

I wish they'd play a smaller venue, we have a few here, although no good venues for between 1300 and 300 people.

I don't like Anthrax, so I didn't like it. I find them really...tacky. That's the only way I can consider it.

However, people who are fans have called it a "return to form" so I guess, take that as you will.

On the subject of Skeletonwitch, is it worth paying for a ticket to see the Black Dahlia Murder just because Skeletonwitch are supporting? I'm kinda torn.

BDM would be better live if they had better fans. They're actually a really fun and energetic band to watch. One of BDM's fans cracked one of my ribs! Hooray! If you don't like hardcore dancers, stay away from the pit most of the night. Then again, I saw them like 4 years ago, so I don't know if people still hardcore dance to them.

I don't even know if he is playing with Testament right now, or if this has any effect on the upcoming tour, but it's still news worth sharing.

James Murphy (Testament, Obituary, Death/mixed tons of albums) 's brain tumor has come back. I know it's blabbermouth, but I've seen this confirmed by several of his friends on facebook as well.

http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=164299

Oddly enough, this is the 3rd brain tumor of a Tampa-related musician (Chuck, Murphy and Curtis Beeson). Weird.

Are bands still cancelling from MDF a month before the show happens? I remember the one year I went Cynic was supposed to headline, but they cancelled right before the show happened.

Some bands cancel the day of or the day before because of visa issues. Sucks that when someone applies for a visa, they find out 3 days before if it will be granted, and they can still be denied at customs. I think that's what happened to Lock Up last year. (I'm sure this varies if you get a tourist or work visa.)

But yeah, bands drop off. With so many bands, it's kind of inevitable that for some band/s, something will come up.

As long as Nasum and Brujeria play, I will be stoked.

Watched Metallica in Abu Dhabi a few weeks ago. Awesome show, made even more awesome by the fact that local death metal dudes Nervecell opened for them. Probably the only date with an opening like that. Check em out, they're in Europe now with Morbid Angel I believe.

Warlord Clothing based out of LA also makes a good showing at MDF. (And a bunch of Euro fests, so they're efficient!) All their stuff is licensed and they are really reasonable. I think they mostly deal in regular T shirts, but might have some hoodies online.

Yeah, if I only bought shirts from shows, I'd own nothing but Cannibal Corpse and Nile shirts. That's what living in Orlando is like.

Buying shirts from distros online or at fests, at least I know the band will get some cut of it, and it's still a cool story. Like "Oh, I found this cool vendor at MDF and they had this totally rare shirt blah blah blah."

For real, if I only bought shirts from shows, I'd own about 5. And I wouldn't have my sweet collection of Dissection shirts, and that would be lame.

Maybe it's just me and the bf, but I love shirts with print on the front and back. I love full color shirts. I love long sleeves with sleeve prints. I am not really a fan of just plain logo shirts, unless there's something totally cool about the shirt. I like non-black t-shirts.

Don't get me wrong, I have my share of one color, front only prints, but if I buy something, I want to love it and I want it to be pretty, drat it.

I guess I'm in the minority here. It's not like I wear them to work or to fancy occasions, although if I'm not working, I'm almost always in jeans and a metal T shirt.

I prefer the Leprosy/Spiritual era, got anything that sounds like that? I like the newer more mature sound too.

But nothing starts my day better than blasting Pull The Plug at full volume.

Maybe some similar era/place stuff? Early Obituary (you might not like the vocals here, it's half words, half puke sounds, but totally amazing), Monstrosity, early Morbid Angel, maybe lesser known stuff like Brutality (these guys have a sort of technical edge you might like), Diabolic, Massacre (which I am so NOT a fan, but maybe you will like it).

The vocals in any band are a sticking point for me. I checked out Obituary and loved the sound, hated the angry cookie monster vocals. Maybe it's an acquired taste since I'm still relatively "new" to metal, I'll check them out again.

What's a good starting song for Morbid Angel and Brutality?

Someone answered MA for me My starting point was Domination, which I loved. The vocals are heavy but totally understandable. Altars might be a little closer to the sound you already like.

Brutality only every put out two albums. I particularly liked When the Sky Turned Black. The whole thing, start to finish, is a masterpiece.

Seconding Pestilence. Adding Hail of Bullets and Asphyx (more Van Drunen) and Bolt Thrower (slow death metal)

So they did. My bad. I never even heard In Mourning. gently caress that album then. :P

Any goons been before? Any advice/warnings to offer? And what's the best way of getting to Clisson from London? We were thinking of getting the coach as my beloved is a bad flyer, and this way we don't have to worry about baggage limits etc. But if there's a better way, please let me know

I was at hellfest this year, but I was with a band, so my experience is a little different.

If you can get to the Clisson airport, there's a shuttle from clisson to hellfest that's like 10 eur a person.

Just cold, mostly! I was already in boots, but I only packed tshirts and shorts! Huge mistake, haha. Some people suggested bringing plastic to lay down in the tent under sleeping bags and stuff, and I'd suggest bringing jeans and shorts and a jacket or two.
