    I've been listening to their albums in order of release, so last night it was World Coming Down.
    For years I only ever listened to their debut without much care to go beyond. I was always interested in other things. But this year I made an oath to finally listen to all the stuff I own that I've been putting off.

    So next up is Life Is Killing Me but I'll definitely be giving everything another listen, I wouldn't leave any of them at a first impression, then I'll update ratings etc.

    It's actually been really fun, I put a new one on and play my 3DS or read. I always absorb music better that way I think.

    It's hard to recommend where to start, they're uniquely all over the place in terms of sound. Really best just to dive in head first and see if you emerge with anything you like.

    Oh right. Well if you enjoy the debut you'll probably dig where the band is about to take you. For me it gets pretty grim. 'Life is Killing Me' has some really cool moments but only about three of them from memory. 'Dead Again' is an unfunny joke basically. Cool cover though. Rasputin.

    Ra-Ra-Rasputin, Russia's greatest love machine!

    I actually don't own Dead Again and I somehow doubt I'll end up buying it, but I'll post my feelings about Life Is Killing Me as soon as I listen to it. What tracks are the good moments in your opinion so I can take notice when they come up.

    1. I love Turisas's cover of 'Rasputin' by the way. Also, I have a weird Rasputin story. I was on an overnight train in Egypt a few years ago and the bar carriage was straight out of the 70s, full of smoke etc from the cigarettes, and all these disco songs being played. Not ironically, but as if they were cutting edge. Rasputin was one of them and I thought, how the fuck did I end up here on a train at midnight somewhere in the Egyptian desert in a 1970s carriage listening to Boney M.

    2. For me, being a romantic wannabe goth, the two best songs are EASILY 'Anesthesia' and then the instrumental that follows, namely 'Drunk in Paris'. These are just great songs. My worst include such shockers as 'I like Goils' (about how he's uncomfortable around gay people) and the appalling 'Angry Inch' (which I think is about small dicks, I can't remember).

    Nice on the Loreena McKennitt album! If you liked that album try The Book of Secrets. The track Marco Polo is my favorite from her.

    I own and cherish every piece of work she's done. Glad to know there's a fan on UM!

    I really love the eastern influences mixed through The Book Of Secrets, it's absolutely beautiful.

    Hell yeah.:kickass: Likewise! Never seen her posted here before so that was a surprise. I love Middle Eastern influenced stuff as well, but she does it very well

    Black Magick SS is awesome. The nazi imagery feels a bit out of place though. Tbh they might be my favorite band ever to blatantly use the imagery...

    You can tell she has a respect for it, unlike many other white artists that sort of fetishise it in an Eat, Pray, Love kind of way.

    I am enjoying this, probably their best (although I only heard Prophetic Deceiver once).
