Ah sure I'll start with debut and go from there, see how it grabs me

Never listened to them but I've heard they're fairly similar to Enslaved in terms of going from black to proggy?

Didn't realise all this postal was going on, just ordered a rake of cds and vinyl from the States. Shite.

They're not unable to increase hospitaly capacity, they're just unwilling. The country has hundreds of unoccupied private beds that have been available for years, beds they've already paid for. Nationalise them, problem solved. But, as we don't have a functioning government it'll never happen.
They could add thousands of extra beds, but without the staff to go with them it's pointless. Successive governments have fucked over nurses for long enough that there's less and less going into the profession each year, and the ones that do end up emigrating

Yeah that looks like a great lineup, hadn't heard a thing about it before

I can understand why certain bands do this shit merch stuff to keep the show on the road...but for the life of me I still can't figure out Metallicas reasoning?
Sure all the big bands do it, Metallica, Maiden, Megadeth, Priest....none of them are short a few quid but when people are happy to buy it then why not sell it?

250 pages in and it seems people do just love to moan about pointless shite

Obviously the right move. I wonder how long before the rest of Europe follows suit.
Wouldn't be surprised to see more and more doing it in the next few years, not a hope of Ireland copping on for a long, long time though

Been watching a load of Futurama recently, it really was a great show and thankfully didn't last long enough to turn to shit like The Simpsons

Footballer John Fleck down now...
Just two months after Sheffield Utd had to take out a loan to cover cashflow problems, join the dots, it's so clearly a massive football wide conspiracy to reduce wages

I know, you are right. Athletes dropping like flies has always been a 'thing'....
Yeah, their salaries have been getting out of control so the virus, or the vaccine, was created to curb their numbers and keep wages in check. Is it just a coincidence Aguero got heart problems so soon after Barcelona announced they were financially crippled?

I saw that article, it doesn't even mention how many athletes had the vaccine, or if any previously had covid which can cause long term heart issues. So basically a load of bollocks

I also saw a news report shared in twitter about how Argentina had stopped a vaccine rollout over fears of deep vein thrombosis. Problem was the report was in Spanish and had absolutely nothing to do with vaccines, and yet people were absolutely lapping it up

Respectable prices?? There's one great vinyl shop in Bordeaux, outside of your massive HMV style stores, but the prices can be eye watering.
I'd love HMV to come back, there's fuck all left now in Dublin

Bit of reality check for where Arsenal are, although yearly bollockings at Anfield aren't anything new. Still though, young team, seem to be moving the right way, just hope Ole is still in charge for the match in a few weeks

Metal Discussion / Re: Opeth news

Axe seemed to be the last overtly Metal man of the band so they'll probably head off even further into  the ether.
Akesson usually still guests on a other metal bands stuff, and Mendez just formed a new death tinged band in the last year, so I wouldn't think it'll make a difference in that regards. Opeth sounds like whatever Akerfeldt wants it to
