I'm almost fucking 31. Of course, that's not old, but I feel old. I still have problems (and I always will) with depression, so you'd think I'd be full of metal rage, but these days, I listen to quieter music. For example, I just zoned out and played Chelsea Wolfe's entire discography. It's awesome music to hibernate to, lie torpid to, vegetate to...you get the picture. When metalcore first started "happening," I could hang with the screamy-screamy kids. I, too, was a Shadows Fall fan. But somewhere along the way, that shit died out, replaced with a covey of bands who all sound the same.
I'm too old for that shit! If I'm going to listen to screamy-screamy stuff, it has to be the genuine article. It has to be OLD SCHOOL. I jam Death, Immolation, Mayhem, Demolition Hammer, Marduk, Grave, Unleashed, etc. Otherwise, it will probably be melodic and from the 80's/90's. There are exceptions to the rule. Battlecross seems decent for a newer act. I'm rambling now. What was my point? My point was there will be an Album Cover of the Week soon. Oh, and I'm old.
