MetalDisc999, Your thread had no directive line, it was a long rambling about Timeghoul but you were really only asking for similar bands and yes, it really seems you're full of yourself without even realizing it. Also, the posts would had been one liners.

ALSO. 700! NEATO.


Coming across that guy actually owning a mantis got me really curious. There are a couple of websites dedicated for it :D Here are some of the packages I found O_O

Quote:
Small starter package - $25.50
(comes with 1 free Egyptian Mantis or Flower Mantis)
Medium starter package - $28.00
(comes with 1 free Ghost Mantis or H. patellifera)
Large starter package - $34.00
(Comes with 1 free Sphrodomantis, Hierodula, or African Twig Mantis)


haha, they have forums on it as well: http://www.mantispets.com/mantis-pets-forum.html#/

Quite a cool thing, actually. I wish I had an eclectic hobby/pet/thingamajig

Well of course you think that if you live in the Mojave. If you want a pet with more than four legs, you could probably just head out back and get a tarantula.

Grave New World is a very good album. It's solid, well executed Heavy Metal. That shows us that those guys mastered their craft. Even Cal singing like a mixture of an angry lady and a cat that was ran over by a truck sounds cool.


The riffing is okay, but nothing spectacular for 1986. Cal's vocals are easily the worst thing about the entire album and I cannot understand why he wouldn't just sing/yell/bark as he did previously. Admittedly to really compliment that style the guitars would have to be far more distorted but it'd make the album far more bearable.

What is wrong with last fm? It didn't scrobble a single song of the music I was listening to for the last 3 days. When I tired a diagnostic check on my iPod it found 0 scrobbles. That sucks, because I probably lost several hundred scrobbles. I fucking hate last fm! It's so shotty.

Uhhh, considering you just posted the same thing four times in one minute, I think the issue may lie in your Internet connection, not last.fm. :lol: (It's been working fine for me, anyways.)

So the year is almost over, and I can't decide if 2012 has been good for metal or not. There has been tons of good stuff but not a lot in terms of amazing stuff. Only Neurosis, Desecravity, Om and possibly Process of Guilt have done albums that I'd give 95 or higher to.

Also the new NOFX album is fucking awful. Coaster wasn't amazing, but it was still good. This new one seems like their really running out of steam. Their jokes aren't funny anymore and the music comes off as recycled.

I'm so fucking mad, I am going to fix this! I'm going to download winamp, add only the music I listened to for the past 3 days, and I leave it playing so it scrobbles all the music while my computer is still running!

What's a scrobble?

Will I need a large net to catch one if it gets into my house?

That is awesome! I’d really like to keep a few mantids but it’s illegal to import them here because they are considered an invasive species.

It definitely is. I think I know why it didn't scrobble, because it synced twice before last fm could "automatically" check for scrobbles. It barely ever checks on it's own. It does now though.

So far, my day has been completely consumed by anger, confusion and frustration over this scrobble thing. I can't wait for this day to be over so my mind can just reset after a night of sleeping.

I'm feeding the Orchid mantises flightless fruitflies at the moment, as they get bigger they'll move on to larger prey. I'm probably going to avoid crickets entirely and just go to mini mealworms - easier to keep mealworms than crickets.

$24 for a tiny little bug may be quite a bit, though there are mantises that go for quite a bit more than that. One sight has Idolomantis diabolica and Orchid mantises for $50 per nymph. In comparison, I got quite a nice deal on the Orchid mantises...

The most expensive bug that I know of (excluding tarantulas and scorpions that might be pricier) is the Queensland Rhino Roach. If you think $199 for one bug is a lot... a few years ago the site had a mating pair - one male and one female - for $900. Granted, the roaches are hard to breed and acquire, especially since they only give birth to five or six nymphs at a time and take two years to reach adulthood.

There is a certain risk to these kinds of pranks. Not all people tend to instinctively cower and flee when confronted with mortal fear, some go into offensive at which point the little girl would be in serious danger. Funny shit nevertheless.

metaldiscussor666 - Shut up

So in other news, tomorrow is my Bucks party (bachelor party for you yanks) and I don't really know what's in store for me. All I know is that there is a bus, lots of liquor and likely to be naked women at some point. Should be lots of fun.

Wormphlegm's Tomb of the Ancient King definitely has a lot on this conversation. Way better riffs, production values, and especially vocals. Love how much the main vocals sound like some breed of massive, heavily muscled pig-troll.

Can't tell if I'm listening to the reputedly shitty version of Crematory's Denial compilation or not right now, but whichever version it is, it kicks a fair amount of ass.

One thing I'll probably never understand about death metal, however, is how it's possible that anyone could ever find enjoyment in a bass break. Especially in a metal context. What the fuck. It never works. I can't even write metal and I know that.

Man, today is just an off day for me; something just isn't quite right. I'm probably just stressed about finals next week. They shouldn't be too bad though, music appreciation is going to be a walk in the park but I've got to study my ass off for astronomy.

How is a Finnish funeral doom metal band relevant to getting slapped by dicks, sadistic MikeyC, bachelor parties, and orchid mantises?

Also, better riffs, production, and vocals than what? Sadistic MikeyC?
