    I hate the "singing," but absolutely love the deep black end-of-the-world beyond Iommi riffs of utter despair.

    If you want speaker annhiliating noise try some Sun O))). I haven't heard enough to really give a judgement on them but these videos just crack me up.

    Some great European gypsy music to warm my soul!

    It took me a while to get to a place I could watch these. I have to say that's the best laugh I've had in a long time. I made it to the 3:30 mark on the first link where the (lead?) guitarist tunes his guitar in mid-drone. It's Spinal Tap meets John Cage.

    The posturing in the 2nd link is pretty hilarious too - no offense intended to anyone taking it seriously.

    Moving in a completely different direction, I recently acquired one of my favorite albums from the 80's I had been missing.



    It features one of my favorite upbeat atmospheric songs:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-AWEkkgoko

    It is rumored the singer, Elizabeth Frazier, is not exactly singing in any language, but it is "sort of" English, using syllables as notes. On other pieces she uses very unusual experimental vocal techniques. Later she went on to record some vocal music for the Lord of the Rings movies I believe.

    I really loved the 4AD label. In its heyday it was a musical oasis in a vast desert of poor taste.

    I recently learned that the composer Karl Jenkins wrote a lot of Soft Machine's stuff during this period. It also features the other worldly Allan Holdsworth letting rip on a proper guitar. Quite different to the Robert Wyatt era output but still interesting.

Put my RAT, Bad Monkey and Muff on together and got some sweet feedback/sustain. After playing classical guitar exclusively for the past 6 months, I was surprised how quickly I got back into the groove. A lot of that last paragraph will be confusing to non-guitarists.
    You and I are going to get along just fine, I listen to Electric Wizard quite a bit. EW, COC, Crowbar, Down, St. Vitus, Kyuss, Bongzilla, EHG, and Pantera are my main metal bands.

    Right now I am listening to Korn. I have all of their first 5 albums shuffled up. I am excited for their new album, because they are getting their original producer to work on what he calls "Korn III"

    Right now, after re-watching Green Street (great film!), I'm listening to Terence Jay's "One Blood":

    I've been listening to Non-Classical for the past few days since I've had time only for a few songs on and off. It sort-of goes along the lines of these albums -

    The Zombies - odessey & oracle (makes me jump up and down like a kid regardless of what the lyrics mean )
    Love - Forever changes
    John Lee Hooker - It Serve You Right to Suffer
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Howl

    Sort of random, but hey, my music player was set to random after all .
