Probably a bit of a cliche but I've always had a grá for the intro to 'Blinded by by Fear' by At the Gates.

...."We are blind to the worlds within us, waiting to be born." (guitars kick in) DNN DNN, DNN DNN

Quote from: Carnage on November 29, 2023, 06:31:14 PMTrue Belief released today:

This definitely won't be bothered with, it all sounds so flat and lifeless compared to the original. I get that they wanted to mark the anniversary and all that, but a live version would have been a better idea IMO. It worked well enough for Draconian Times.

The one thing positive thing I will say about True Belief is he fixed the out of key vocal in the first verse. That always bugged me in the original.

Apart from that, it's missing the vibe of the original unfortunately.

The song isn't bad, I actually quite like it on first listen.  Pretty heavy, catchy chorus but that video is a bag of shit.

Yeah, it's heavy, but it plods like fuck

Not usually a fan of movie samples in songs but The Exorcist III sample at the beginning of Crown of Horns by Cryptopsy is perfect.

The ominous keyboards and thunder sound intro to Into the Infinity of Thoughts before the chaos kicks in still gives me goose bumps.

Let's keep the tradition alive so.

I picked up Paul Lynch's Beyond the Sea in the library today and I'm flying through it. Not bad at all.

Was at a Hot Press book launch/party years ago and when I arrived (late) I was at the back as the speaker was on the stage. Directly in front of me was this really disheveled looking character who was heckling the speaker much to the bemusement of some people around. I thought perhaps a homeless person had walked in off the street I looked again and it was Shane MacGowan! He then shuffled off somewhere else and I didn't see him until the bar afterwards surrounded by industry types. RIP- The Irish Rover, cannot stand 'Fairytale..'.

Dystopia's "Stress Builds Character". Greatest intro ever. The rant over the first few minutes is amazing
