21:24 - Belegûr If you're going for Win 8, you might as well jump to Win 10. If you are still on 7, like me, stay on it for now ;)
21:19 - !J.O.O.E.! Pay to use the internet? That sounds too insane to be true :P as for gaming it's supposed to be ideal for upcoming DX12 games. I've tried Morrowind, Starbound and Planescape: Torment. All fine so far.
21:17 - Apothecary Glad you're enjoying it, but Karlabos is right, I need to expand that list significantly, to include some of those rare Bandcamp finds and non-MS bands. Hope to get it to 100 albums someday
21:15 - 3rdWorld @Joe I've heard some bad things about Win10, that its not suitable for gaming and that you have to pay to use the internet with that and some stuff. I couldn't decide to directly go to Win10, so moving to 8 first.
21:08 - Jericho Rehling I put about 90% of your Unorthodox Black Metal list into a Spotify playlist and am just slowly working through it.
21:07 - Apothecary For sure dude, they're really a great group. Eagerly anticipating their next album, which, although the EP last year was good, I hope throws some black metal back in the mix
Bay Area thrash metal legends Testament are proud to announce their first US headlining tour since their phenomenal chart success with their new album, Dark Roots of Earth, released at the end of July this year via Nuclear Blast. The trek promises to be one of the best thrash metal lineups of the year, with support coming from the world renowned Overkill and Flotsam & Jetsam, as well as Australian thrashers 4ARM.Check out the full list of tour dates below the flyer.
"It's a thrill to announce our upcoming dates with Overkill and Flotsam & Jetsam," commented guitarist Alex Skolnick. "It's a tour that brings together three different metal bands from three different regions: West Coast, East Coast and Southwest. All three bands sound very different from one another yet are highly compatible. All have been around the block (and the world) a few times and all have managed to keep a sound that feels current. This tour will be a must see for fans who remember the early days of thrash/speed metal as well as those whose age is younger than the genre itself."
