General Discussion / RIP Tim Smith (Cardiacs)

I know there's a few fans here. This is genuinely fucking upsetting, but given his health over the last few years I hope he has some peace.
An absolute visionary.

Metal Discussion / METAL WARFARE MIXES!!
« on: July 21, 2020, 11:22:26 AM »
Just putting this out there to see if anyone might be up for it.

I'm a serial maker of mixtapes and playlists and that kinda thing, and at the start of lockdown I made a few for friends as a bit of fun and something to do. Also because I'm sure like a lot of you I'm working at home currently  I've always got the tunes on in the background

Just wondering would folk here be up for making playlists or mixes or whatever?Maybe either to swap with other posters or even post here so we have a thread of them?


*No longer than 90 minutes

*this is a metal forum so  keep it metal based, though feel free to include whatever else you want as well

* you can assemble something using softwards of your choice and upload to Soundcloud/Mixcloud
*post a Spotify playlist
*Post a link for is to all download it using Mediafire or whatever site you like

And here's what we have:

















Metal Discussion / Mausoleum

Hadnt listened to these in years but revisited them this week after seeing a post about them online somewhere.

While I generally dont like bands who are a straight up homage/tribute to other bands (eg:Gruesome), these lads nail the early Autopsy sound possibly better than Autopsy themselves. Anyone else into them?

General Discussion / Attention Swans Fans

Quick last minute heads up: The "Where Does A Body End" documentary is showing in Dublin at the IFI tonight (Monday) at 6.30 and I believe at the Cork Film Festival tomorrow. Still tickets for Dublin this morning and it's a one off screening, apparently lots of early and unseen footage included. Trailer here

Gigs and Festivals / God Alone - The Hut, Dublin Nov 8

 Not my gig but I've seen them get favourable mentions here so I thought I might give interested parties a heads up.

There seems to be literally  no advertising locally for this, only noticed it as it's mentioned in a Kerrang article.

Promotional / Otterans "Canal Ghosts" tape
« on: November 06, 2019, 10:33:09 AM »
4 tracks of instrumental  dungeon guitar drone/noise that may be of some interest to some of you. Available as a download but I've a handful of the remaining tapes from the label (Outsider Art) and I believe it's almost sold out from him

bit of background about it here too

Couple of other less harsh releases for free download on the bandcamp too.

Metal Discussion / Electricals - FULL DEMO ONLINE & interview (pg2)
« on: October 18, 2019, 09:03:33 AM »
I've mentioned this new band I'm in before but ahead of playing the Siege of Limerick next week, figured we'd put a song up. Not sure I'd class this as metal exactly but closer to the heavier end of the Noise Rock/Grunge spectrum I guess - if you like Melvins, Torche, Boris or Old Man Gloom we've been compared to all them.

Electricals is myself, Cory Mifsud & Peter McNally (who were in Lurch and Drainland) and Aidan O'Hanlon (ex Crows)  This is the first strack from a four songer we recorded mostly live in studio with Stephen Caffrey in September that will be released in full later in the year.

Metal Discussion / Mefitis "Emberdawn"
« on: September 18, 2019, 09:00:19 AM »
One of the best metal records I've heard this year by some distance. Amazing melodic death/black metal clearly inspired by the earliest Gothenburg stuff (ATG pre "Terminal", Dissection, Eucharist, Dawn, and especially the first Dark Tranquility demo/lp), some "North From Here" era Sentenced, but still pretty much has a personality of its' own,  Sits on the fence between the two genres perfectly, has it all - atmosphere, melody, manges to be complex without being wanky. Really good soundtrack for this weather too I find.

Not a lot of bands doing this style anyway never mind about doing it this well, really flowing and well written stuff. Art by the lad who did the Demilich and Adramalech album covers back in the day.

Check it out, well worth a listen.

Metal Discussion / Unearthly
« on: September 11, 2019, 10:35:14 AM »
Right. Seeing Paul Lynch's (weirdly airbrushed) face all over Hodges Figgis while I was looking at books yesterday reminded me once again about this great but short lived band. Has anyone unearthed a copy of the "Infinite Enigma" demo over the years? I know even the likes of Jobrok and Dr Quirkey have yet to upload it, but I'd love to hear it again. Or are they doomed to vanish into the lore of the brief and terrifying reign of Donegal Metal along with the infamous Lucifire and the Tricifix reunion?

For anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about:

They were like our own little teenage Death/Cynic. Paul is now a fairly succesful author as you;ve perhaps gleaned from this very post.

Ex Cathedral (and ex Acid Reign come to think of it) heads  Lehan and Ramsey resurfacing with an album coming out on Rise Above. The crap artwork/name aside  I'm actually enjoying this tune quite a bit, definitely has the feel and guitar heft  (and more than a hint of the vocal approach) of the more rocking bits of "Carnival" but funneled through a less fantastical and more Melvins/Crowbar approach.  Not reinventing the wheel by any means but sounds cool.

Metal Discussion / The Mr Bungle "reunion"
« on: August 14, 2019, 09:09:03 AM »
So I know there's other Bungle fans on here too... It's happening. In the most contrary, Bungle-esque wind up of a way possible.

I'm obviously not holding out for new material and this is a one off deal I think, but what a weird thing to reunite for - spending most of your career making wildly innovative music and then getting back together to play your shitty teenage death thrash demo.

Also I can't help but just think "really?Scott Ian was the best they could get to play second guitar?"
