Aren't we all... Have you heard anything about that? I thought it was supposed to come out last December, but of course that didn't happen. He kind of switched gears back to music, I guess. I haven't heard anything new about Phantasmagoria for a really, really long time. His website intro is back to the flashes of scenes from the movie that he'd taken off right before EMDM came out, but no actual news as far as I know. I only ask because everyone asks me. They assume I'm a Manson expert because I'm a Manson fan. Mostly this is the case, but there are things I don't know still.

My goodness, I sound like an obsessed fangirl... wow...

don't know how much truth there is to it but I heard from a usually reliable source that he ran out of money making the movie and was advised to release another album and tour to make some money.Apparently he'll begin work on it again sometime next year.
Hope he does he's been going on about his movie career for years, he was originally lined up to play willy wonka in tim burtons movie and was ment to be working on another movie with American Mcgee in his Alice in Wonderland movie.
Has any one heard anything about the deftones new album?

I'll definitely check out Nebula. That's a great idea because I should diversify the music on my iPod. It's mostly Death Metal and Thrash with a little bit of Goth thrown in (The Cure, Bauhaus, Christian Death).

The types of music that I most enjoy include art music (colloquially termed as "classical"), especially solo classical guitar music, symphonic music, string quartets etc. I also enjoy metal music, mostly black/post-black, "viking" etc (Emperor, Enslaved, Borknagar, Satyricon, Immortal, Gorgoroth, Mayhem, Marduk, Dissection, Funeral Mist, Leviathan, Hell Militia, Blut Aus Nord, Deathspell Omega, Watain, ImpNaz, Akercocke, etc, etc) gothic doom (not stoner) such as My Dying Bride, Anathema, Paradise Lost, Theatre of Tragedy, Katatonia, Daylight Dies, Swallow the Sun; I also enjoy bands who where once thought of as metal but have moved into a more rock direction such as more recent Anathema, and the Gathering. I enjoy classic seventies rock like Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, King Crimson and more modern singer/songwriters like Jeff Buckley and Damien Rice. This list is by no means exhaustive, but is pretty representative of my tastes; to do a full list would be far too extensive.

It really is the strangest thing that as one gets older, one's music tastes do tend to diversify, as I can well attest. I'm by no means an old man, but I can certainly say that I listen to things now that I would have had reservations about when I was a teen. And, while I am diverse in my tastes, I'm not one of those people who claim to "like a little bit of every kind of music." I like what sounds good to me ; if I don't like the way something sounds, then I don't like it. I'm always left wondering if people like those described above are sincere in their affirmations that they like every kind of music or, out of fear of being thought of as closed-minded, lie. I know what I like and I know what I don't like. However, I'm always willing to listen to something, though it doesn't mean I will like it. I don't think that is being closed-minded, it's an aesthetic choice. Some people might argue that if one listens to a piece of music objectively, one will inevitably find something in it that one will see/hear as being good. One can listen to a piece objectively and find something "good" therein, but still can come away from the piece without liking it. I can listen to something that is, from a technical standpoint, executed flawlessly, but if it is in a style that I don't like, I won't really like the music.

I have also noticed a trend in talking with/observing various people, that certain people are more vocally oriented in their musical tastes, while others are more instrumental in their tastes. Some people prefer vocally interesting music while the instrumental parts are usually relegated to mundane harmonic function when the voice has the melody. Some like music that is interesting instrumentally while the voice is only mildly entertaining. Of course, it's not an exact science, but it is an interesting tendency to observe nonetheless.

i feel left out, i listen to mostly hip-hop.
i'm curious to know all of your opinions on all the metal and punk sub-genres like grindcore, cybergore, pornogore, nintendocore etc.
i personally think it doesn't take much talent to play the sort of music. (with acceptations of course)
but it's damn refreshing to hear some new sounding music.
if you don't know what i'm talking about here are some examples so you may ALL give your intelligible opinions!

Well, since we're on the topic of Mayhem and black metal;

First of all, Black Metal music can be comparitively far more diverse in soundscapes than it's predecessor, death metal. You pretty much have to lose the vocal style alltogether to not be black. Now as for Mayhem, Wolf's Lair Abyss, which followed De Mysteriis, is black metal to the core. But the album following that, Grand Declaration, is most definately (in my opinion of course) uninspired throw away trash that exposes just how poor a musician Maniac is both vocally and lyrically, and truly strayed from the Black Metal arena. But then, with Chimera, we see Mayhem attempt to approach Black Metal roots (as admitted by the band pre-recording), as Blasphemer creates an incredibly effective combination of trash and black metal guitar playing. If you want an example of when Black Metal becomes Avante Garde, you need to look towards a band such as Arcturus who actually did evolve beyond the tenets of Black Metal. At any rate, ultimately Mayhem's change in musical direction has been as a result of their lineup change, which has been prioritized by idiotic principles (again, I'm not being very subjective in my statements). The media and the scene criticized Mayhem to such an extreme degree (after Per Ingvie and Oystein's death) in regards to now excluding so much of the original lineup, that Hellhammer allowed himself to be pressured into allowing previous members Maniac and Blasphemer back into the fold, rather than seeking what was best for the band. I'm personally infinitely irritated by Maniac's incredible lack of talent and Blasphemer's thrash metal orientation corrupting what was once the epitome, partial inception, and all too quickly deteriation of an incredibly Black musical outfit. This concludes my rant.

I have also been addicted to the very same record for some time now. And I just found a new record to listen to. I wasn't even sure I liked it at first but yet had to listen to it over again. It a Swedish band called Shining and the latest record V Halmstad is pretty excellent in its own depressive way. It's quite suicidal from beginning to the end. Which I suppose is the basic idea judging from the cover art... Too bad they sing in swedish so I only understand a word from here and there \:\(

Hey, im from Sweden.


The type of music i like really does vary alot between styles.
In a random playlist on my pc i could have everything from Billy Idol to Dimmu Borgir to Skrewdriver on there.

I like Industrial Metal alot but also some Black Metal, Numetal, Other types of metal, Oi! Punk, White Power music, 90's grunge and hiphop.
Some of my favourite bands are Dimmu Borgir, Ministry, Stabbing Westward, Skrewdriver, Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson. So that says a bit.

I havent seen anybody else on here much into Industrial stuff tho.
