02:37 - !J.O.O.E.! Hey ZÖN, I found your stuff last week actually, really nice, especially with headphones.
02:00 - mz also, I have not heard your music yet, but experimental/ drone/ dark ambient fits my taste prefectly.
01:56 - mz on a serious note, the majority of active users are into black, death, doom and sludge it seems.
01:54 - ZÖN Are there any interested in blackened power metal though. I can get on board with that
01:52 - mz @ zon: welcome to the MS. We have a nice comunity of small number of people who are active, and the atmosphere here is much more civilized than MA+ there are not many active users interested in power metal, which is very good :D
01:38 - Maco Call me Maco Trunk. Don't tell it to my man Karl.
Lately, I have been listening to a lot of occult/psychedelic metal and rock, especially by female fronted bands. The most recent one was Jess and the Ancient Ones and I quite liked what they had to offer.
The music is fun and catchy with a nice retro sound. While a few of the songs were somewhat bland and repetative, the majority of them were really enjoyable with the highlights being "Sulfur Giants" and "The Devil". The singer has a good and diverse voice which is a bit shaky at times but it was nothing that bothered me notably.
Jess and the Ancient Ones self-titled debut is definitively an album I will revisit if I ever feel like listening to some solid and easily digestible occult rock.
yeah, pretty much. makes me long for the creativity of Jex Thoth... and i am not sure what is worse, the cult of personality adopted to female fronted bands or anyone with testes drooling the second a woman fronts a metal band.
i guess it just proves that dudes are no better than the screaming pre-teen chicks getting their panties wet to the Beebs.
Hmm, not sure which is worse, the erroneous, cliche metaller knee-jerk Bieber comparison or the continued misapplication of Weber's sociological / political paradigm (after all I doubt anyone would know of "Jess" as an actual personality without "and the Ancient Ones" tagged on the end of it, unless the definition of "cult of personality" now extends to anyone simply owning a vagina).
And apparently my own sexual organs should make the wealth of femme-fronted symph-goth-power metal bands most appealing to me. Any suggestions people?
Great album though, glad to see it's doing well with many of the (other) staff too. People should check out the new EP, which is also rather nice.
