    What do you play besides Guitar and Bass?

    Beside guitars, I've played drums on and off since I was 15, but I'm definitely not good at it and never learned any proper technique or anything. When I was 15 I had access to my band's drummer's kit and played on that a lot, his double pedals also were great and I got pretty good with those...

    Your top melodeath albums?

    I chose Death Unlimited myself, but originally I liked Mirror of Madness a lot more and only got into DU after they'd disbanded. Both great albums for sure, the only problem I have with MoM is that Blackhearted and Betrayed both basically start with the same riff :lol:

    Your top melodeath albums?

    I'd say Follow the Reaper is also melodeath, but the rest not so much. There's the odd song here and there that might qualify of course. Regarding AYDY, I'd rather categorize it as melothrash (if that's even a thing) even though that isn't accurate throughout either. HCDR is definitely...

    I made a rap song! (in Spanish)

    Yeah, I'm no rap expert by any means :lol: That's just the first thing that came to mind. It's not "unpleasant" in any way, but I guess just not mixed like you'd expect a rap song to be. I guess it's a rap song mixed like a metal song!

    Your top melodeath albums?

    Trying to think of something that hasn't been mentioned yet: God Dethroned - The Lair of the White Worm Nekrogoblikon - Stench (yeah, it's got some folk metal ish vibes too, but check out the song "Bears" for example and tell me that isn't melodeath...) Amoral - Decrowning / Reptile Ride...

    I made a rap song! (in Spanish)

    Hey, that was way better than I expected. Maybe a bit bass heavy? If you compare it to some general rap stuff, they usually leave a bit more room for the actual vocals. But it was fun anyway, and an excellent first attempt.

    Children of Bodom/Bodom after Midnight Megathread (RIP Alexi)

    Didn't really do it for me, sadly! I mean, yes, everything was played 100% perfect, but I wish they'd played just a tad faster to make it feel more "busy", and the vocals were just ok, nothing more. Vicky Psarakis did a much better Alexi-imitation on her Hate Me! cover IMO. It was awesome to...

    The First World Problem Thread...Voice Your Struggle

    It's just another thing to get used to. I basically only have my hair open at shows, and when I'm playing myself I have to specifically practice for that. I don't mind it being all over the place otherwise, but sometimes it gets in your face so you can't see anything. And usually shows are kinda...

    The First World Problem Thread...Voice Your Struggle

    I had a major FWP-moment this Saturday. My wife went to the theater with her friend, and since it was a pretty long play, I drove them there and hung out around the area with our baby so I could bring her in to breastfeed during the intermission. I was carrying the baby in a strap-thing on my...

    The First World Problem Thread...Voice Your Struggle

    I think IMO 2/3 would be perfectly fine if the headliner was one of the two, since opening bands play shorter sets anyway. So it'd actually be closer to half the show or even less, and sometimes the opening bands don't even play on the same stage, but on a little extension part in front of the...

    New Metal Music Thread

    They also still do the proper pirate metal songs though, the previous single sounded like it could've been on their first album. Also apparently their next album is supposed to be more "serious" in general. Not that I'd care, I kinda like this song anyway :lol: And my 6 yo daughter loves it...

    NGD Jackson RRX24 MG-7

    I prefer just one volume knob, don't need anything more so the rest will just be in the way.

    NGD Jackson RRX24 MG-7

    Awesome, hngd! That looks like something I'd consider if I was in the market for a new 7. The only thing I'd change on it is the knobs configuration, but that's a super minor detail.

    New Metal Music Thread

    I don't know if it's just the good mood I happen to be in that's doing it, but I kinda like this one! ^ and these guys just keep going deeper into the groove metal hole. At least they haven't lost their energy yet.

    The First World Problem Thread...Voice Your Struggle

    Yup! I never drink alone (never really have). The whole point in my drinking is to loosen up and do stuff that you can laugh about later, so drinking at home alone kinda defeats the purpose. I basically stopped drinking alltogether (apart from a couple of parties along the way) when the pandemic...

    I really miss getting drunk. It's the opposite of what people were previously saying. I used to drink a lot but never got addicted to it, and now that I'm a responsible parent™, I don't even feel like it when I get the chance. The main problem is that I don't get that total "reboot" at all, so...

    Good albums with disappointing sound/production

    Gotta agree on this, at least a little. It's far from terrible, but it's not up to Gojira standards IMO.

    Landscape/Garden Projects Thread!

    Ripped out a couple of tree stumps today using an iron rod. They've been in the way when mowing the lawn since we moved here, so I figured I'll see how hard it'd be to pull them out. I wasn't expecting to get them out, but it's been several years since the trees were cut down, so the stumps were...
