Pinned toot

1/6: I’d like to introduce myself to you all. As a newcomer that’s the polite thing to do.
Those that know me are familiar with my love of Heavy Metal. But since I’m new here I’ll try and explain just how deep that feeling runs. Since I was a lad this music has been much more than a mere stylistic accoutrement, a fashion choice that I haven't grown out of. For me Metal is a total way of life, an all consuming passion that possesses me from the moment I wake to the end of the day.

Good morning all. I task you all today with checking out this very underrated band.

Well, apparently some people consider them to be Behemoth clones. I disagree. In fact I think I might prefer Sulphur Aeon to Behemoth (yes, blasphemy. Sorry, not sorry).

Who's heard of Sulphur Aeon? I'm guessing a few of you since they are German. I hadn't heard of them until a few weeks ago and cannot stop listening to their two albums. I dig the whole Cthulhu mythos theme, and their music is just so fitting. I can't understand why they aren't more popular?
If you haven't heard them, do yourself a favour and check them out. 🤘

Into The Electric Castle (20th Anniversary Edition) from Ayreon -

I listened to this album a few days back and I was really thrilled by the audio quality and the mix! Can really recommend to listen to it in surround and on big speakers. It's a completely different experience.

No, not even your 5,000 Dollar headphones will do. It's not the same.

What a great record this was!
From 1984 release “Psalm 9”, here’s Christian doom band Trouble with a cover of the Cream classic. 🤘

It’s Friday! Thank Dog!
Kicking it off a bit mellow (relatively) with All Hail The Yeti...
Then, once I know I’m alive, cranking to ensure a full state of wakefulness with Immolation (yes, that’s Max Cavalera guesting).
Have a very metal day and a wonderful weekend everyone 🤘🤓🤘

Good morning all. Kicking off the day with some Barren Earth. If you like Opeth and the like give this a spin.
Have a very metal day 🤘😁🤘

One of the most alienating experiences on Mastodon I've observed is when someone posts about something they're passionate about or is part of their identity and the first response is "please cw that" from a complete stranger.


It’s time!
To get off the treadmill. Just a few more years...
To all of us on the great treadmill, have a great day regardless. 🤘

#auspol lamentation 

Happy Friday everyone. I’m kicking off my favourite work day with some black metal from a very underrated band - Noctem.

Some of you may have figured out that I’m a massive Black Sabbath tragic. I’m also particularly fond of bands that pull off exceptional covers of Sabbath classics. Thus one has to be my favourite. Behold! Brown Sabbath performing Fairies Wear Boots.

For the new parents/grandparents among us. Here’s an album to soothe your little baby to sleep while also introducing them to the classics. No one is too young to start listening to Black Sabbath.
