Band of the week: #CrystalCastles
Anyone buying music/merch from #metalblade records better think twice. They're officially supporting and releasing the album of Bartłomiej Krysiuk's version of #Batushka, despite a polish court order prohibiting him from releasing anything under that name or giving live performances until the respective trial is over. While he plans to countersue the order, he doesn't seem to have anything (reasonable) backing up his case. Therefore this whole ordeal amounts to theft of intellectual property.
Such a perfect progression from the first album. This is exactly how a follow up record should sound like: Keeping true to the established sound while exploring different facets of it and delivering the same (in this case even better) level of quality.
I personally prefer the vocals compared to litourgiya as well. Much better performance and variety overall.
Band of the week: #CrystalCastles
Daughter has reached the age of asking "why?" to everything.
"hold on to that cup with both hands"
"i don't want you to drop it"
"It's made of glass, and if you drop a glass thing it can break"
"because glass is brittle"
"because supercooling molten silicon dioxide makes an amorphous solid which is weaker than the crystalline form"
"the crystalline form has a tetrahedral lattice of ionic bonds"
"because one silicon atom can bind with four oxygen"
"I liken Trump's presidency to a scenario in which a monkey has locked itself in your car. You're pretty sure it doesn't know how to drive but it sure is fucking up the upholstery."
Digitalisierung: Demokratie ist ohne Privatheit nicht möglich
«Derjenige, welcher der Sichtbarkeit unterworfen ist und dies weiss, übernimmt die Zwangsmittel der Macht und spielt sie gegen sich selbst aus; er internalisiert das Machtverhältnis, in welchem er gleichzeitig beide Rollen spielt; er wird zum Prinzip seiner eigenen Unterwerfung.» (Michel Foucault)
Arkanum - Kostogher
Do you like black metal? I like black metal. Do you like fairly good riifs, creative instrumental sections, and creative vox here and there? This album delivers all that. The only downside is that it runs for 57 long minutes. That's a little too long for me and most people. Overall a strong album. 8/10
Band of the Week: #EternalAlchemist
my favorite track here would be 'blood cathedral' from the first album
this way you could also give #followers the option to choose what kind of content from the user they are interested in if part of the account is based on themed instances. It could solve the problem of overly zealous #contentwarning demands by hiding unwanted content in content warning or omitting it alltogether
from this observation, the #design of #mastodon should give the option to unify an account spread on several instances. #Mirroring seems to be an option if handled reasonably as to not overload smaller servers when someone has a lot of account that should joined together.
I understand that a lot of users want to keep their accounts on different instances separate due to privacy, so I worded this as an option instead of a core design
der #bandcamp feed ist eigentlich ziemlich scho gut
Lantlos - "Melting sun"
... music for hot weekends ...
