What the hell is slow music? Go listen to Napalm Death! I still don't listen to slow music and I'm older than most of you.

I dont think its an age thing... I was deep into Pink Floyd stuff before I was even a teenager.

Damn, I haven’t heard about Napalm Death for YEARS. I still prefer Death Metal when it comes to the hard stuff though…

I'm a big underground metal guy actually. My favorite wave of music has to be the pioneers of black/death metal in the mid 80's. Shit like Sodom, Kreator, Dark Angel, Death, Pestilence, Necrophagia, Slayer, Bathory, Celtic Frost, Hellhammer, Venom, Sabbat, Sepultura.

Then I like some of the 90s black metal, Burzum, Darkthrone, Dissection, Mortuary Drape. Some of the 90's death metal is good too, Suffocation, Autopsy, Sadistik Exekution. Only two 90's grunge bands I liked were Alice in Chains and Soundgarden.

No Sir I have another 4 or 5 years to go before I hit the big 40. If I even last that long.
That explains a lot, same age as me so you grew up listening to that shit. I was a weirdo, always watching older movies, older music, and reading novels and philosophy.

90s metal... this band has many modes but always kills it... seeing them live was amazing!

Get Shredded!
The first lap-dance I ever had, was a Penthouse pin-up girl at The Body Shop in Montreal, to this song... and its still a favorite...
Songs are like bookmarks in my life...
These songs provide the literal soundtrack to our lives. It’s amazing how they can trigger our memories.

Ok now we hit some common ground. Well kind of. I actually went to a Pink Floyd concert out in California years back. I ate a pile of shroons before hand and ended up laying in the grass outside by the parking lot just enjoying the texture of a lawn. I have no idea how the concert was. I missed the whole thing. Lol

I have a bunch of songs that kinda "calm the beast" while "speaking to the pain" real men are feeling in this upside down world...
Heres the 1st one...
Wait until you have a moment alone, you are seeking calm, and actually listen...

My favorite "ballads"



That “Born Again” is pretty obscure. It’s on my phone’s music and comes up while I am training. Also on the obscure ”Black Sabbath” side is “7th Sign”, which is also on my phone. Ian Gillan and the remarkable Glenn Hughes, how can you beat it?
But the best Sabbath “replacement” singers is Ronnie James Dio, of course. “Heaven and Hell” and “Mob Rules” are both on my ”desert island discs” list. Iommi’s playing was obviouly next level when RJD joined the band. He seems inspired.
Two other albums that come to mind where the guitar playing and songs just eclipsed all previous are Van Halen’s “Fair Warning” and Armored Saint’s “Symbol of Salvation”.
Iommi really came out of the drudging riff box on those albums and started writing and playing massive songs.

I know by some people those 80's albums are looked down on, they certainly weren't the same band, it took me a while to appreciate them, but honestly now I prefer them just because I enjoy the "metal" sound much more than the "bluesy" sound from the 70's. Seventh Star is definitely an underrated gem IMO, Glenn Hughes is such a great singer. Wish they would've done a couple more albums with Gillian and Hughes. IMO Born Again is my favorite album, Gillian seriously has a voice made for metal, it's a shame he didn't do more with it beyond Deep Purple.

Ace of Spades? Hell yeah!
I think the best album is the one NOBODY ever talks about: “Another Perfect Day”. It was my first and only Motorhead album purchase. I bought it in1983 back when I spent 30% of my paychecks on records. The other album/songs are great but nothing compares to “APD”. On second thought, I did buy inferno. Also in my phone. Great album 21 years later.
I also like classical music

I love everything Chopin. I like plenty of other big composers but Chopin, like Paganini, was metal. I just prefer piano over violin. Although I do dig cello too. In fact, Yo-Yo Ma is playing across the street soon and we’ll probably go.
I give credit to all my favorite neo-classical fusion guys for turning me onto classical. Starting of course with Yngwie, then Tony MacAlpine, Vinnie Moore, David T. Chastain, Alex Masi…the list goes on.

You should really look into Mexican outdoor festivals. The Monterey one last year had half those bands probably. Not my cup of tea but…
Two day VIP tickets go for $150 or so. Half what I’ll pay for a Tool only show here in the binocular seats. They have one in Deciembre that is three days I think. Cheap and easy to get to Mexico, Airbnbs are cheap, the fucking venue staff aren’t the oppressive dicks they are in the LOTF and the food of course….! They can’t charge $12 for a beer because they’d sell zero beers.
Take a look at this insanity:



Life After Death Day 1 my friend Leather Leone is playing. In fact it’s like “chick day”. Lot’s of bands with women. I want go and may…all three days.


To Fletcher’s question, I submit this. Any version is great. The studio one you can close your eyes and fall in. I like this live version because you can see how everything flows from SRV. At around the middle he sort of comes out of his trance, smiles at his bandmates and goes back in.
I was fortunate enough to have lived about three houses away from a place called “The Hop” in Ft. Worth. I saw SRV there in 1983 I think. Same time he was touring with David Bowie. I wasn’t (then) into the blues but his playing gave me chicken skin. This song still does every time. While not a big SRV fan or a fan of his boogie woogie type stuff, I am always impressed by his natural, appearing effortless playing. It just flows out of him. The only other guys that I have seen where this also seems apparent is Joe Satriani circa 1990 and every time I have seen Steve Morse.
