hey /tg/
Two things:
1) does anyone have that 'wanted' poster for the dragon?
and 2) does anyone want something of theirs that is fantasy related advertised in a shitty zine I am making for funsies?

Im just bored and going to make a bunch of copies of a Zine and then publicly distribute it for free wherever I feel is appropriate for a fantasy based zine to be distributed. if your selling something it is free advertising.

"Wordsmith" isn't flavorful. It's hackneyed and all-too-often used by non-writers as a way of dismissing how much careful thought goes into actually producing something worth reading. That is, it dismisses the skillset as being one of intuition rather than one of intellect.

I picked up It Won't Fade a while back when it was in one of the free music bundles Google Music does every now and then. It made it into regular rotation in my metal playlist, but I tend to have the same problem with Sonata Arctica that I have with Epica: unnecessary death growls. They have this nasty habit of immaculately constructing this beautifully heavy and intricate track and then muddying it all up with death growls that sound fucking awful.

>> No.24893529

By first impression, they're kind of pop-punky in sound. A bit on the overly polished and artificial side (no flaws to their music, no DiY sound). I'm also always leery of Epitaph bands. But none of these things are inherently bad.

Someone listening to them wouldn't make my raise an eyebrow, but they're not my thing.

Say, you ever listen to poison girls? They're a 70s anarcho-punk band with a rather feministic focus to their lyrics. I don't agree with most of their music, but their frontman (I'm not changing that term, damnit) has a fucking goosebump worthy voice.

I myself am rather fond of the Norse gods. Each is larger than life, wise, strong, and great in their own regards. But they're also fallible.

That's the best thing about any genre of metal, the cheesier acts tend to be more enjoyable the longer you listen to them.

>> No.24895762

Not that anon. But I tend to enjoy the more serious forms of metal.

Take this for example.

Remember when they were opening for themselves as "Christian Balestorm?"

You sound boring.

>> No.24895810

While I am fairly boring. Being serious doesn't mean you can't have fun with it, or that it can't be enjoyed in a way that doesn't involve basking in superfluous complexity.

No one wants to listen to you be a prick about how you only like serious metal. That shit just murders conversations.

I didn't say I only like it. I said I prefer it. I was hoping to get some sort of exchange of recommendations going. But obviously you would much rather fixate on a single aspect and attack it rather than suggest something.

>> No.24895991

No one cares.

>> No.24896023

Whether or not you care doesn't change the fact that I will still be posting links. Now get over yourself.

Here's all of "De Virmis Mysteriis" by "High on Fire."

I especially recommend "Madness of an Architect."

Were you linking to something or just suggesting? Either way, De Virmis is fantastic.
