Metal Discussion / Nevermind… until 30 years later
« on: August 25, 2021, 12:02:05 PM »
Is grunge off-topic? I’m sure plenty of us have Nirvana  Nevermind in our collections anyway, but never thought it would lead to this:

Nirvana sued by the baby from Nevermind's album cover
https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-58327844

Really grabbing for the dollar now. So the parents agreed at the time and got rewarded, but now the son claims they never released the image properly?

I know I’m not in his shoes and he had misgivings along the way, but he’s reading far much into how people may perceive him or the cover. Go sue your parents if you have an issue with how they used you! He seemed perfectly happy recreating the image over many years, and obviously benefitting himself.

What’s next, the guy whose hand is on the s/t System of a Down album suing because it could be associated with theft when it’s next to the “Steal this album” release, and it has ruined his reputation and caused irreparable damages, prevented him from finding employment etc?

PS Good article here re Nirvana’s first trip to Ireland when they hadn’t a penny to their name https://www.irishexaminer.com/lifestyle/artsandculture/arid-40362350.html

Metal Discussion / Vreid - new album out 30 April
« on: February 03, 2021, 07:44:34 PM »
Vreid are the only band I keep track of to see what’s stirring. So after hints for a few months,
chuffed to discover news released today that the 9th album is due in April:

https://www.season-of-mist.com/release/wild-north-west/

They’ve continued to develop their sognametal  on each record, but they’ve a movie to go along with this as part of a bigger project so I hope that doesn’t detract from focus on the tunes.

Album title is dodgy, cover is crap, but it has to tie in with their movie I guess. Looks like it’s set up for a comic book tie-in or something but the tunes will come through on it surely! Here’s hoping, eagerly awaiting it in any event (unlike with bands like Cannibal Corpse rehashing stuff ad nauseam).

Check ‘em out in the meantime anyway if you haven’t taken a chance previously.

Gigs and Festivals / Autumn festivals
« on: January 31, 2020, 12:31:03 AM »
A bunch of us Corkonians are trying to organise a trip abroad for the autumn, taking in a gig or part of a festival along the way, somewhere easily accessible from Ireland. Any experience for suggestions for the latter end of 2020? Sound job feen/beuer!

Metal Discussion / Peaceville - living up to its’ name?
« on: October 10, 2019, 05:57:36 PM »
Once upon a time Peaveville were on top of their game and set a standard for discovering new groundbreaking bands.

However I’m finding it hard to remember the last decent release I got from them, let alone something ground breaking. On checking theor Burning Shed online store they seem very much scraping by on past glories, with the 10th anniversary of this or the 30thanniversary of that.

 Anyone gotten anything decent from them in the past decade?  Are they even a real label anymore?? Does Peaceville now really translate as SleepyVillage?

General Discussion / The Cure, Dublin
« on: June 06, 2019, 07:57:46 PM »
I know a good few from MI were going, any here?

Looked up the names of the support bands today but never heard of any of them. Anyone ever heard them? I.e. is it a complete waste of time heading in early??

Gigs and Festivals / Killtown Deathfest
« on: January 01, 2019, 09:51:29 PM »
Killtown Deathfest 2019 tickets go on sale on 10th January, with same policy as last year announcing 1 band per day from then. Judging from past line up's and the excellent time I had there last year I'll be buying straight away for sure...


“KILL-TOWN DEATH FEST VII - THE DECOMPOMORPHOSIS” will take place 5th – 8th of September 2019!! 4 days of death, 40 bands, 3 stages, DJ´s, metal market, events, horror cinema, distros, food, drinks and death metal freaks from across the globe!

 We will start the band announcements on January 10th. One band a day for 40 days. Presale will start on the 10th as well at 12.00 CET. Be quick cause there will only be 700 tickets for sale – and if things will go as last year they will not be up for long…

Quite a cool, very interesting little documentary here on the metal scene in the Navajo Reservation, well worth a look:

Must check out some bands tomorrow. Anyone hear any of these Rez bands before?
