    I'm not sure what I should compliment first. The Big Lebowski picture or your taste.

    It has a couple very good songs on it. As a whole it isn't as great as Addicts or Assassins, but there's a few on here that are worth a listen at least. It's certainly better than their last one at least.

    Hey man, you finish that article you were writing?

    Definitely keep me posted. Who do you write articles for? Do you do reviews, too? I just started a new job, so I'm going to start building as soon as my first paycheck comes in. Apart from the Shure SM57 Mic, I'm not sure what my next piece is gonna be, haha. Still looking into cheap options that will at least give me reasonable production. As far as mixers go, what do you think about this one? I do love to add a lot of layers, so I don't know if it would be easier/more convenient to just get a mixer with more channels.

    That's some kickass stuff, thanks for the link, man. How is your studio coming? I've been working on putting together some throwback 90's gothic doom tracks I thought would be fun to try to record and mess around with. Basically early Katatonia/Theatre of Tragedy worship. Been listening to the band "On Thorns I Lay" lately, which has fueled my desire to do something in that vain, though with a different kind of twist. By the way, the name is Matt, I don't think if I ever mentioned my name yet, haha.

    Probably the best Gif/profile pic on here. And what a great library you have. Praise Iommi

    I have both Ahab and Dolorian, but haven't listened to Dolorian in a looong time, I actually can't remember what they sound like. I might throw them on and refresh my mind. Ahab are fucking great, though. I noticed you listening to a bunch of "Tripping the Mechanism" and brought them up on a whim, and wow, this kicks ass. "Dunwich Horror," to me, sounds like the Melvins "Stoner Witch" put in a blender with Kreator a little bit. I see they're from down here, do you know the guys or something, or have you just seen them play clubs around here?

    It certainly does look like an inexpensive way to learn the trade and get set in the right direction for working in the field. And shit, if nothing else, at least you know how to record your own stuff and work freelance on the side, so even if it doesn't make a career it still seems worthwhile. I have one Lake of Tears album, actually; "Headstones." I've been meaning to explore their other stuff, so I'll start there next. It's awesome you're into Thergothon, they don't get talked about nearly as much as they should. Skepticism is another great one. If you dig Thergothon, they're definitely up your alley. Hey, I'm looking for some good atmospheric rock albums. Do you have any you could recommend?

    I saw they are having one on the 26th of this month, so I'll definitely check that out. It's something I have gave some considerable thought about but didn't know where to get started on going to school for it or learning the craft of it, had no idea there was a good school for it basically around the corner. I'd probably say that I too prefer Katatonia's doom albums a bit more, but songs like "Criminals" are just so damn good for me to really say which is best. But I'm just very partial to the dark doom bands of the 90's like Thergothon, Funeral, Theatre of Tragedy, etc. Have you heard Blakkheim's other project Diabolical Masquerade? Not sure how into black metal you are.

    That's probably what I'm going to do; take the studio ones and probably one on the music business. It seems like a hard field to get a job in though, is that why you're cutting the middle man out and building your own? Oh yeah, I've been following Katatonia since Viva Emptiness came out I think. "Dance of December Souls" is one of my favorite 90's doom albums, plus it was produced by Dan Swano, who has always been one of my favorites. I also really love the direction they moved into also, I've always been really big on depressive rock. Have you heard Seigmen before? If you like later-era Katatonia, you might dig them as well. And I've burned through Orchid's discography now, haha, such good stuff. In fact, I think the album as a whole may even be better than any Sabbath record to be honest.

    That sounds excellent. Is there a path where I can avoid any sort of live stuff? I don't have interest in working concerts, mostly just studio. Shit, I could probably pick up a bit recording my music with you when you get your studio together to get a little familiarity before enrolling. I have a little EP worth of neo-folk songs I'd like to record when you have things ready. Hell yeah, I've been in love with that October Tide album for years. Too bad their other albums lost that great atmosphere...never got into their other work. But I finally got around to that Orchid album and am in love with it. Probably one of my favorite doom albums ever already.

    Cool, thanks for the suggestions, man. So how was the audio institute you went to? I was checking it out and thought it sounds like something I'd like to pursue. Do you need to have a basic knowledge of production/recording in order to not fall behind? How was your experience?

    Good to know, if the SM58 is the same price I may just go for that one instead. Do you think you could point me towards a couple DAW's under $300 that could do a decent job? Or am I most likely going to have to spend more? I'm also looking for a good drum machine that's reasonably easy to program. I've been recommended to check out EZDrummer but haven't been able to mess around with it and see how it is.

    I've heard that the Shure SM57 mic is used in the industry quite often, and is very affordable. Do you have any experience with those? Are they good for recording both vocals and guitar? And the death metal "project" of ours we never put on MySpace, haha. We just did it to amuse ourselves. It was mostly just an excuse to have a place to put all of our weird ideas that didn't fit with anything else we were making, and do silly GG Allin covers and parody bands like Shining on top of it. Unfortunately I couldn't make the show since I had other plans that night. Was it a good one? I'm hoping to catch a good show sometime here soon.

    One of the trickier parts seems to be getting good mic placement, which largely seems subjective as to how you want it to sound like. I just hope to come up with something that doesn't ultimately sound like crap on good speakers. I've made a couple of joke experimental/death metal albums with a friend from another state. We'd both write for it, he'd record the guitars/program drums, and then I'd drop my vocals in on my Tascam DP-01 and add keyboards. I don't have a mic so I'd basically use a pair of headphones for one, haha. Needless to say the quality isn't so great.

    Reaper seems pretty decent to me, only I probably understand what maybe 2% of the features even does. I thought about getting Pro Tools but was warned that you need to really know what you’re doing to use that program. I suppose that’s why they call it PRO tools. Thanks, I’m poking around this site a bit and seeing if there’s anything in my price range. I’m just hoping for a rudimentary set-up at least. Let me know when you’re ready to accept projects. Have you been involved in any projects before?

    Swans are really a love them or leave them kind of a band. There are only a couple albums of theirs that I can listen to at any time, but the others you need to be in a very specific mood to listen to. I’d recommend checking out the songs “Killing for Company” and “God Damn the Sun” if you weren’t into their more industrial songs. I heard that Reaper was pretty good without having to pay for software, so I downloaded that. I’m still in need of a decent DAW and a mic, though. But if you’d like to work together with me on some recordings sometime I’m totally for that. It would definitely be better working with someone who knows what the hell they’re doing, haha. What program do you intend on using?

"Ride the dragon toward the crimson eye,
flap the wings under Mars' red sky.
The reptile pushes itself out into space,
leaving behind the human race."
-Sleep (Dragonaut)

"What kind of creature do we have here?
It feels like love, but it smells like fear.
Look in the mirror baby what do you dream?
Look at it harder now and you start to scream.
We're finding out what drives your machine."

"The sun burns in the stranger's eyes,
just one tear before he dies.
Black mass can't ease the pain,
there's nothing here, there's nothing sane."

"The God machine is hungry,
for individualism and ripe brains.
The skull farmers do their rain dance,
and pray the machine falls to sleep.
She holds me close, and whispers wet
"there are cannibals among us."

"Woman and child,
like a feather falls from the sky.
So dark, so dark in the moonlight,
naked we worship the night sky.
No man can hold what the darkness can sow,
gonna leave an ugly skull when ya go."
