A Nun's Shaded Visage? Nun's Dark Habit?

And can we put a fucking moratorium on these acoustic interludes metal bands like to put smack dab in the middle of their albums? Unless you're bona fide folk metal I don't want to hear anything but thrashing downtuned guitars, with the occasional solo. And stop using Latin song titles like everyone in the metal community took four years of it in high school and gives a fuck. No one cares that you googled a phrase about neverending war, the sorrows of hell, or time's relentless march. Finally, please stop using obscure medical conditions that nobody besides the most studious doctor would know. This isn't some demonic version of House.

Loving the new Krallice. A little different than a lot of black metal, production isn't as lo-fi than I like black metal, but still good.

Seems nobody enjoyed my earlier poll. Well, I'm bored today and trying to think of all the metal bands I've seen play live. Here we go:

These were all the ones I saw at New England Metal and Hardcore Fest, 2005 (a twice or thrice designation indicates that I also saw the band at some other venue):

Black Dahlia Murder (thrice)
Between the Buried and Me
Behemoth
Red Chord
From a Second Story Window (thrice)
Paria
Lamb of God
Obituary
Haste the Day
Premonitions of War
Hatebreed
Glass Casket
Twelve Tribes (twice)
Reflux
God Forbid (twice)
Bleeding Through
The Agony Scene
Remembering Never (twice)
Walls of Jericho (twice)
Evergreen Terrace
3 Inches of Blood
Nile
Hypocrisy
Into the Moat (twice)
Origin
Cephalic Carnage
Acacia Strain (twice)
Unearth
Strapping Young Lad
Kylesa
All That Remains
Cryptopsy (twice)

An assortment of other venues and shows, usually at St. Andrew's/ The Shelter, some at the Intersection in Grand Rapids, a few at the Crowfoot in Pontiac, a few at some random place by Allen Park, and a few at a place in Seattle I think was called Studio Seven or something like that:

Zao
As I Lay Dying
Full Blown Chaos
Ion Dissonance
See You Next Tuesday
Flesh and Blood Robot
Cannibal Corpse
Dying Fetus
Trap Them
Toxic Holocaust
Destroyer 666
Devourment
Bloodlined Calligraphy
Winter Solstice
Suffocation
Despised Icon
Alarum
Neuraxis
Necrophagist
Skeletonwitch
A Life Once Lost (before they went all Lamb of God)
Cave In
Silence The Epilogue (they sadly only put out an EP)



There are probably a few I'm forgetting. My favorite show(s) were From a Second Story Window. I was up on stage screaming my lungs off with these dudes at one show. I watched then guitarist Derek Vasconi jump off this massive fucking speaker into the crowd while still playing his guitar. Later that day the whole band invited me and my two friends back to their hotel for a beer and blunts type party. Good fucking times. In terms of pure audio quality I'd put Dying Fetus and Zao at a close second. Zao was great because I met Dan Weyandt, and he was a super nice, surprisingly soft-spoken dude.

What are your shows, folks? Favorites? Interesting experiences like an animal sacrifice or anything?

Not really feeling that Skeletonwitch track, brother.

But I do have two things to contribute:

1) http://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/an-open-letter-to-the-guy-who-puked-next-to-me-at-the-heavy-metal-festival

2) Alcest - Ecailles de Lune. It's like some weird ethereal counterpart to Jesu or ISIS, trembling on the metal fence like a wounded ferret. It's also kind of like if Explosions in the Sky started singing in French and occasionally played some downtuned bits.

Kinda soft, not as thrashy. I wasn't a huge fan to begin with, and I would never have listened to them at all if this was the first song I heard.

By total accident I stumbled upon an earlier death metal band in the vein of Carcass but much more porno-resume builder sense of harder and faster. By and large I think General Surgery slipped under just about everyone's radar, including my own. Nonetheless, they were ahead of their time in when Necrology came out in 1993, especially in regard to vocals.
