Re: Violent Shogun - knife will not open because of the rust (Satatuhatta)

You guys are insane and adorable. "Ripping Hearts" got selfreleased in the end, and that's it. I don't think I have covers left for extra copies now and am not sure whether it deserves to be spread more than it already was. "KWNOBOTR" had a different backstory and did need to see...

Re: Pathways to Noise / Place and Time

I went from making field recordings of my days with a Fisher Price boombox or playing my Bontempi keyboard through a horribly distorting karaoke machine as a very little kid to getting way into extreme metal and hardcore punk while I was in middle school, and my parents would also take me to free ja...

Re: THE DREADED GEAR THREAD

It can be pretty "normal" too (it's all over Dire Straits' "Sultans Of Swing"'s guitar solo for instance), and that' s actually what I love about compressors. They can be some kind of always-on pedal that just makes everything sound better in general. But the Orange Squeezer can ...

Re: THE DREADED GEAR THREAD

I've built quite a few Orange Squeezer compressors over the years. It's one of my favourite pedals to use. I think it sounds great on bass, guitar, drum machines, tapes, noise, and the cool thing is that you can mod them easily and turn them into "weird" pedals like, not really a compresso...

I'm actually surprised that there are not more projects involving ideas of Christianity. Sexual anxiety/shame blended with a Christian sense of guilt/sin would be a great thematic basis for a project, now that I think of it. Shameful plug : check out Droit Divin.

Re: Extreme metal (death/black/etc)

I've been blasting the last Gorephilia's album lately. I love everything they did before but that last record really sounds like what Morbid Angel's "Domination" should have been. The last Mortiferum album also caught me off-guard. And I have yet to find current BM bands that are exciting ...

Re: JUNK METAL ABUSE

I love it. I like junk sounds better when you can hear the room they've been recorded in, by the way. I think it adds to the textures. Also, it's easy to make it all sound bad or not as good. when you're just contactmic'ing everything. I've done it before but poorly, in retrospect. I just pretend to...

Re: Soundtracks & background musics

I think Zombi took a bad turn after "Shape Shift" and actually, so did Majeure, which is huge bummer for me. I did not really love 2020 and kind of wrote it off as “a grower” but I listened yesterday and it’s not really growing on me the way I’d hoped. I thought Shape Shift was one of the...

Forbidden Planet by Louis & Bebe Barron. Flat out the best soundtrack of all time imo. This one is so great. Just absolutely perfect and so ahead of it’s time. [basic post incoming] I’m a real sucker for Goblin and will buy almost anything from their “classic years” (I do not get down with the ...

Re: Production Techniques

MOTU interfaces are better when they work. They're a freaking pain in the neck to setup and use in my humble opinion. My teachers at school (you'd believe people who can use Ableton and MaxMSP with their eyes closed would know how to use a MOTU interface) would lose their mind because of how unpredi...

Re: medium of releases

As a listener: I listen to most of my music on digital format mostly for convenience. I spend most of my day outside at work or commuting, and when I'm home, there are lots of things I don't want to subject my girlfriend to, and that includes brutal music. I therefore use my headphones a lot, and fo...

Re: THE DREADED GEAR THREAD

I've been really into feedback loops. There's constantly a huge amount of interesting pedals for sale locally, so I keep picking up 1-2 pedals a month for less than 100 bux each. Building long pedal chains and seeing what comes out is fascinating. I should really get into tape loops, I have all the...

Re: Pets

My IG is filled with pictures of my cats.

Lilou, 10 and a half is a super grumpy princess.

Natto, 4 and a half, is a stinky and dumb cat who thinks she's a dog or something. She's currently sleeping on my belly right now.

I love them both to bits.

Whatever you record in them?
Exactly. I also love loops on which the tape is so ruined the sound source just blends with the tape to create a texture.
