22:30 - Apothecary Extreme shock value in live BM performances though feels like such a "we've been through this already" type thing though. It has about the same impact that Marilyn Manson would have if he was still shitting on the U.S. flag live
22:28 - Apothecary Of course you can't really expect everyone who goes to shows to know the background about EVERY band they're going to be seeing. But still, a general idea would be nice. It's black metal, (most of) it is quite extreme live
22:24 - ScreamingSteelUS Shit happens. Shining happens. Don't go calling out Abigail Williams and Origin for touring with them or the venue or the fans or everybody else. That's just pointless and stupid.
22:23 - ScreamingSteelUS The fact that "it's black metal" doesn't necessarily excuse what are some objectively rude or unsettling practices, because as Che said, sometimes it's a bit much, but, you know, do some research. It still IS black metal.
22:22 - ScreamingSteelUS I guess I'm sympathetic towards her because she did have an uncomfortable experience for perfectly understandable reasons, but she loses me by making it everybody else's problem and blaming everyone else for humoring Kvarforth.
22:19 - ScreamingSteelUS I'm genuinely torn between "she's overreacting hilariously" and "actually, that seems pretty fair." Either way, I was so ready for her to punch Kvarforth.
22:14 - Apothecary Real shit, upon first reading this article I thought it was satirization of overly sensitive PC types. Maybe it actually is
Frontiers Records will release the debut album from Swedish singer Angelica Rylin, Thrive, on November 29th in Europe and December 3rd in North America. Best known as the singer in symphonic metallers The Murder Of My Sweet, Angelica Rylin finally decided to pursue her childhood dream and record her debut solo album in a true melodic rock style.
Some songwriting luminaries answered the call in order to create the magic harmonies and music displayed on Angelica's debut album. "Harry Hess, Daniel Flores, Robert Sall, Alessandro Del Vecchio and Anders Wigelius all contributed", says Angelica and some excellent guitarists such as Jesper Stromblad (In Flames), Magnus Karlsson (Primal Fear), Per Berquist (Smash Into Pieces) also appear on the album. There is also a special performance by keyboardist Matt Guillory (James LaBrie). Angelica wrote or co-wrote several songs on her record, showing another side of her abilities.
