As the title says, your latest finds when it comes to vinyls.

For me it was these, though it was some time ago I bought them:

>Carach Angren - Where The Corpses Sink Forever
>Falconer - Black Moon Rising
>Beyond Creation - The Aura
>Xenobiotic - Ares(7")
>AFI - Burials
>Soreption - Engineering The Void
Today I've slept 4 times, and it's still just shortly after 8 pm here! *sigh*

For the moment I'm oversleeping at a friend's apartment until I find a new apartment on my own, since I've had quite the problem with internet for up to a half year now, so I'm really happy to be able to be online now. I've missed a lot of things while I've been gone :(

For the moment I'm watching tons of anime, and I'm kind of greedy for new suggestions *wink wink*

Anyway, this journal entry will be a short one this time, but I'm looking forward to interract with you guys again ^^

In your opinion, are there any good harem animes out there(including reverse-harem)? If yes, could you name me some?
What could make the majority of harem animes better(including reverse-harem), if it is possible to improve them?

Sidenote: Nichijou is one of the few animes that can make me laugh everytime I watch a clip from it. Love that anime/manga.
Since I've missed half of 2014 music-wise thanks for not being able to be online for a halfyear('til now), I want to ask for your recommendations of albums I've missed.

Genres I'm interrested in:
>Metal(just throw anything out, but I'm mostly found of death metal, deathcore, black metal, funeral doom, power metal and metalcore)
>Dark Ambient
>Folk music(going to test it, since the few snippets I've had of it I've enjoyed it)

Thanks.
I have mentioned my viewpoint of this in a few earlier threads, but this time I'm going to turn it into its own topic.

What is talent? Is there only a handful of artist today that has it, or is it more common, like 1 of 10 artists? What defines talent. Is it a static statement, or do we have to ask each new person to understand how they interpret the word?

Personally when the subject occurs, there's only one band, existing today, that I consider being talented. Ne Obliviscaris:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMorAd…

But when I encounter other people they seem to be rather loose with that term, especially when they're a fangirl/-boy. These people often consider their favourite band as talented, though it's clear that their eyes has been blinded by the fact that they believe their favourite band is perfect, and thus a perfect band is talented per say.
Not everyone acts like this of course, but a big enough group to make me scratch my head in disbelief and wonder about the word.

Personally, there's a difference between a band being great and a band being talented. Great is subjective, that's why a thing can be both great and awful. But talent on the other hand is more of an objective term in my opinion, that's why personally I frown upon people that say whatever catchy band is talented. Yes, a talented band can be catchy, but a catchy band rarily, if ever, is talented.

Ne Obliviscaris is not my favourite band, just to get that out, that spot goes to Ovid's Withering. Personally I think Ovid's Withering is as close to musical perfection it can come, but I don't consider them talented, that would just be silly of me.



tl;dr
Is talent in the eye of the beholder, or does most people not have a clue what that word means?

Wow, it seems like ages since we spoke! Anyway, I found something interesting the other day and I wondered if you knew anything about it, because I can't find anywhere to listen to it.

Check it out: www.spirit-of-metal.com/album-…

Do you know anything about this?

Indeed, and sorry for the late reply, haven't got access to internet for a VERY long time(it has been awful :( ).

Hm... have you asked the band about it? Haven't found much myself either, but the bandmembers are pretty chill, so maybe they put up an old song on youtube or something if you ask(maybe). I know at least that The Omen Of Lycaon(the old version) is available on youtube, and I think Oedipus Complex as well will exist somewhere in its old glory.

you have good taste in music, and post on the forums a fair bit-- do you know of any good female fronted metal bands? Going more towards harsh vocals, than 'gothic-metal' type..
