Default The Music Banter Members' Journals Update Thread, October 2017


I suppose you all thought I'd be too busy listening to every album released this year to be able to devote time to this update huh?
You're right: I am.
But here it is anyway.

Not a huge amount of updates to be sure, but we kick off with
http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ite-about.html where the Battish one is writing about Sacred Reich, Anthrax and of course Slayer in an article he calls Mid-tempo Thrash Bangerz and then eliciting our adulation in Sieg Heil Batlordia, with the tale of how even Hitler found him awesome when he found himself in Nazi Germany. Boo! Bring back The Return of the Kings of Metal, say I! Still, at least he's trying.

Not sure if Chula Vista is going to be continuing updating http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...17-2017-a.html as he seems to be levelling out, healthwise now, but if not, well I guess that's good news?

Florence and the Machine feature in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...obably-dl.html

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...nnerspace.html becomes Sounds from outer space this month as innerspaceboy considers the merits of the Voyager Golden Record, a replica of the one that went scooting around the cosmos on the original Voyager mission (no Slayer I fear Batty). Oh, and there's also a Soviet silent movie and he asks the question What Does Your Soul Look Like? Deep, man, deep. Well worth a read.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ong-picks.html this month include a detailed discography of Japanese, um ... band Dir En Grey, as well as Kobra and the Lotus, Arch Enemy and Tori Amos

while the http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...um-musica.html is packed with content this month, including Anais Mitchell's interpretation of the Myth of Orpheus and Eurydice (also called Don't Look Behind You! ), as well as Waits, Angels and Airwaves , Ayreon, Baez, Beck and literally a whole heap more.

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...dern-rock.html has Garmana, Girls At Our Best! And See Through Dresses. Not literally; don't get excited there.

Speaking of putting in a shitload of work, http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...p-lighter.html sees Occulthawk looking into drone ambient, 2008 and interviewing Frownland. I enjoyed that last one; you should try to make it a feature, maybe hit up Plankton next? Anyway, well done, both of you. (Good way of ensuring you get your posts approved immediately, man!) As usual, there is way too much in this journal to list it all, so just dive in. You might drown, but dammit, it's a good way to go!

http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ck-garage.html for TWO YEARS, Oriphiel has finally escaped and returns with a great horror story in the leadup to Halloween.

Appropriately, finally, in http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...nal-sound.html, Zero is celebrating his ten year anniversary. Congrats, man!

And now for the awards. You know this month it was hard. I have to give

to innerspaceboy for his labour of love on the Voyager Golden Record three-post extravaganza. Really interesting, detailed, well researched (as ever) and entertaining and informative.


Seems like you guys are taking turns winning this award: last month it was Mord, the previous month Occult. This month, I could not decide between Mord's trojan work on his journal and Occult's sterling input into his, so I'm awarding it to you both. You can work out between you how to share it: maybe Occult can have it Monday to Thursday and Mord the weekend and Friday? Hopefully no fights break out!

Oh, and before we go, we can't forget our Ori, who after two years is

suitably with a horror story. Anyone got a double-barrelled sawn-off?

That's it then for another month. See you after Halloween!

Toodles!

I don't know why whoever made that gif even bothered, let alone why TH bothered posting it.

The most unsettling thing about it is how it's winking at me for a split second.

With the greatest respect, go fuck yourself. (The only one who will)
