EDIT - Made an arse of the quote function. The following is Astfgyl's quote.........

*****************************

I'm fully with you on this, but apart from myself I don't think too many others here will be on board bar maybe a couple. I've given the last year or more calling it out on here but have been met with a lot of "nothing to see here, all coincidence, all above board" sort of responses. I'd be of the opinion that the covid is the ultimate Trojan horse. Not that it doesn't exist or anything but that the response has been tailor made to bring in this new era of surveillance and social control by consent. And y'know what, the vast majority are fucking lapping it up. It's also amazing how quickly old Klaus got that book written and published, it must have been pure train of thought stuff for him (or he had it at the ready for his minions well in advance).

In general though in this thread I'm trying to focus on the science element of things which is full of holes in itself.

Well I wouldn't be saying "it's all above board, nothing to see here".

What I've said is that it's always been like this. Those in power (sometimes benevolent, often not) have been controlling and exploiting the multitude since the dawn of civilisation. They just do it in different ways as the eras change.

It's as if you think we live in some age of freedom and goodness and truth that's about to be taken from us. And that by seeing the changes that are going on in front of our eyes and calling them out we are going to be able to somehow resist and maintain our land of milk and honey.

The strong will continue to dominate the weak. Nothing fundamental is changing. I would still prefer the current and future enslavement to most/all examples from the past.

Apologies if it's already in the thread but any good films/docs on Led Zeppelin? Either whole career or single album/period based?

For All Tid is unreal. Like others I ignored Dimmu for 20 years based on my introduction being Spiritual Black Dimensions back in 99. Been enjoying it a lot recently. Earliest Satyricon is good but far from my favourite mid 90s Norge BM.

Sorry, I thought the idea was to debate which one was better.

My favourite is Dead Can Dance's Within The Realm Of A Dying Sun. It's just majestic beyond words, not a bad second on it and her voice in particular is heartbreaking and chilling in turn. Never equalled.

Any of the three of Spleen and Ideal, Within the realm...... and The Serpents Egg could lay a claim. Has any band ever produced a run of three albums that good?

Hvis Lyset Tar Oss


Or

Townes Van Zandt s/t


I don't think I've ever made it through a Type O song. Embarrassing stuff if someone walked in and I was caught listening that.

Isn't that going to be the way anyhow, no vaccine no doing anything?

"It's just 2 weeks to flatten the curve" has certainly grown legs. If I can be arsed to find it, I said in a rant here sometime last year that everywhere we saw the words "Face Covering" that we would soon be replacing it with "Proof of Vaccination".

Make no mistake, this is a very fucking slippery slope from here, even for those who are vaccinated. It is only going to get worse once this gets in the door, if we all simply accept it. The whole point of this charade continuing to this day is to get those vaccine papers through. Otherwise it would have ended in Feb or March.

Has anybody actually looked at the laughable projections that were used to justify the 2 week delay? They are beyond fucking laughable and if I made them here I'd be laughed off the board. To say that we would have another couple of thousand deaths by September and a couple of hundred thousand cases is actual fucking madness. Seriously.

Not a hope is all of this still about a novel virus. Not a hope. The profiteers have their foot in the door and they won't be taking it out any time soon. Watch.

I think you get far too worked up about this mate.

Human societies have been dominated and controlled since the dawn of civilisation. This current day stuff is all just a symptom of a larger picture and a shift from one historical era to the next. The disintegration of the West amidst increasing technological influences and surveillance.

Its not like we were free in previous times and are somehow now just accepting coercion and domination. The current era is interesting for sure but isn't exactly special or unique in its upheaval.

I think all you (we) can do is accept the present moment and try and enjoy it. What you or anyone else has done in the past is immaterial now and living in the future is just as futile.

You are 20 odd years at doom death. High time for a quality BM project you are more than capable of.

Deadly. I got my copy in the post the other day. Good sounding record. You will enjoy it im sure.

Poland current scene is mighty altogether. Have you checked out the new release by Beyond Time? Good chance it is up your street Andy.

 Best of luck with the move to Australia. Maybe you could hook up with Cormac Sheehan over there and do an astral BM project !

Probably my most listened to band of 2020. I love Rainbow Nights the best. Cuntish how hard it is to get physical copies of the music. There are extremely limited runs released every now and then. You'd want to live online to nab one. Cdr will have to do.

Quite like the psychedelic occult nazi imagery of the album sleeves. It's got that 70s b movie vibe which ties in well with the music.

All the researching, the soul searching, the gut feelings, the suspicions, all the it doesn't add up etc etc etc...........

The whole fucking thing boils down to one thing really. Would the (worldwide) health service cope with a rampant spread of Covid? The answer is No. In ordinary time health services are stretched. An unexpected flu where a relatively small number of extra ICU beds are required cripples the whole shebang. Thats the long and short of it. The reason for lockdowns and restrictions. The alternative was to arrange big temporary palliative care dying field hospitals, and let the 99% who it doesn't kill get on with normal life.

In the modern age, where life is sacrosanct,  no one was gonna get away with that.

The Kerrang style rock/metal scene has always been a safe space for the weirdos, outsiders, homosexual, bullied etc etc types. It was when I was a kid in the 90s and no one batted an eyelid.

Your independent lone wolf metal head tended to gravitate to the underground scene and either stuck with it or 'grew up'. The alternative Kerrang crowd were usually only in it for reassurance and friendship until they too grew up. Today's crowd seem to want attention and recognition whether deserved or not. A result of the look at me internet age....

Where did you get the beer engine? I'm intrigued

Ebay. It cost me almost 200 including postage but is simple to set up, obviously no pricking about with gas and its a sublime pleasure to have your own hand pump pint if you are a real ale man.

Off the top of my head I think the crowd selling them on ebay is called RBS.

Been brewing 7 or 8 years. I tend to brew the styles I like that aren't too common on the run of the mill craft beer shelves - British style bitters, brown ale, stouts etc. I don't bother with hoppy pale ales as that is all that's available in the shops anyway.

I don't think you need a shed or much space. A forgiving missus is more important. I brew using as much of a stripped down process as possible. A Peco boiler for BIAB mash and boil in the back bathroom . Quick fly spare with a jug. No chill process. 24 hours later trans to fermenter and leave 3 weeks. Bottle and bag it up (recently bought a real ale style beer engine - awesome) and leave it 3 or 4 weeks to drink.

Get great beer out of it. Class hobby
