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.
01:35 - Maco I'm like Eddie Trunk, main difference is that I don't believe good music died in the 90's.
Influential bassist Paul Raven passed away on the 20th of October. A message posted on the MySpace page of his latest project Mob Research states:
"Mob Research founder and bassist Paul Raven passed away today Saturday 20th October, apparently from a heart attack. The cause of the attack is currently unknown. He had just arrived in Europe to commence recording with his friends Treponem Pal.
Raven was the charismatic bass player for Killing Joke for many years, also Prong and most recently Ministry and Mob Research. He was a great friend to many and a legendary bass player. We shall all miss Paul incredibly. When we have more information on his untimely passing and cause of death we will let you know. We are still in a state of shock. We understand the funeral services will be held in England. Any messages of condolence are welcomed.
