A bit I encountered that infuriated me:
Created w/ Audacity @ 16bit/44.1kHz.
Ripped using an Ortofon 2m Blue Cartridge mounted on a Music Hall MMF 2.2 with Acrylic Platter and Pro-Ject Speed Box. Sent through a Marantz PM5003 Integrated Amp w/ the units Pre-amp into the line in port on my MacBook Pro.
We see that very expensive and high-quality equipment is used to send everything to an absolutely crappy laptop sound card. It’s like eating caviar in a plate of vomit. What the fuck? And a good sound card would cost less than ten percent of all this stuff. WHAT. THE. FUCK.
But what is the most significant with this mac faggot is the use of my. Like all macfags, he uses my like my iPhone that I love so much I stuff it in my ass every day, my “unibody” MacBook Pro, my shiny iPad that is shiny, etc.

KILL ALL MACFAGS.
Today, I discovered crabcore.
It’s extremely bad, and so fucking gay. Shitty stupid moves (looks like the retarded child of nu-metal and tecktonik). Auto-Tune. AUTO-TUNE?! AUTO-TUNE in my post-hardcore? Clearly, Hitler has to raise from the dead and burn every last one of these bands.
They’re tagged post-hardcore on Last.fm, and that alone made me die a little inside.
To sum up, it’s the nu-metal of post-hardcore. Hence the title.
Today I listened to Shocknina.
It fucking sucks.
Is this a pathetic attempt to make industrial fans buy Shakira albums?
By the way, Ayria still sucks but at least it’s listenable.
One of my favorite sources of music is being endangered by a take-down order sent by their local MAFIAA to their host. However, as they stated on their website as the news got out:
- The MAFIAA has no legal basis, it’s just scare tactics.
- Their host is not scared and will not comply (unless they have a court order, of course). Many hosts in the past were quickly intimated or bribed by the intellectual “property” police.
- They run very frequent backups, to various locations in the world.
- They have an idle server in an undisclosed location, twice as more powerful, just waiting in case of a police raid. Which would mean almost zero downtime, and a another waste of taxpayers’ money.1
The administrators who run these kind of websites – and I’m not only talking about piracy -, they are true modern heroes with big fucking balls. Thank you, guys.
And each time one of them is taken down, new ones, better, tougher, will emerge.
- Don’t think you pay for anti-piracy? Learn about “operation fastlink” and the other similar ones [↩]
Hydra Head Records is an independent record label, founded in New Mexico by Aaron Turner (the frontman of Isis) in 1993. Some of the bands signed to the label include Cave In, Pelican, Xasthur, and Jesu.
Botch, Khanate, and Harkonen were all signed to Hydra Head prior to their respective disbandings.
And they’re doing it again.
I just listened to the Pyramids self-titled double CD. It’s unusual and brilliant. They were classified as Indie (whatever that means) where I got it, but it’s much more than that. It’s a sort of post-rock drone with celestial voices… well, I’ve never been able to describe music, and it will clearly not start with them. Listen to them, and if you don’t like it you’re a faggot.
Wow. Cute Japanese girls playing doom metal? I expected to LOLWTF, but I didn’t. Actually they sounded quite good. Moreover, they have a dead tree on their CD cover, and while it’s a big doom cliché, I fucking love dead trees. Well, by looking at the promo pictures it seems they invented some sort of “visual doom”, however they don’t look that ridiculous (not compared to some Norwegian true black metal band I will not name, but compared to the Japanese+women combo).
Let’s not forget the lineup:
Mika Penetrator – vocals, guitars
Vivian Slaughter – vocals, bass
Risa Reaper – drums, vocals
If you want to discover other extreme metal female vocalists, you should get this dusty but still good compilation.
