I wanted to put this somewhere that's easily noticed, since I've talked about this with people here several times and it still seems to be a frequent issue. I will only delete a thread if it breaks the rules. The rules are in that other sticky. If you personally think a thread is shit, that doesn't warrant deletion. If you want to change the rules in some way (maybe there's something specific in several threads you don't like that you think there should be a rule against), mention it in this thread. Depending on the opinion of everyone else on the board, we can probably make a new rule. If you wanted me to delete a thread on the basis of it being "shitty", I would have the power to delete any thread I feel like deleting. "Shitty" is subjective. Maybe I'll purge ARF from the board because I personally think it's stupid and shitty I don't, in fact I'm a contributor; it's just an example, and I'll delete posts about music I don't like because obviously nobody likes that kind of music so those threads are shit. If you really want that kind of moderation, there's something seriously wrong with you. If you report a thread that doesn't break any rules (which happens a lot, so don't consider yourself singled-out if you've done it recently), I'm just going to ignore it. If you think the board is dead or you think all the threads suck, you can make this board a more enjoyable place by creating and bumping threads you think are quality. If enough people did that, there would be a lot less to complain about.


Hey everyone. I'm sure you're all aware that the mods have abandoned us. You have a new board owner now. I don't know how long I'll do this for, but at least for the foreseeable future there'll be someone here to delete the shitty threads. Post any meta-related things, questions or complaints in this thread. I'm not going to change much about the board, except replacing the old meta sticky with this one. Also, question: should I sticky the ARF thread?For the sake of transparency, I'll at least mention a little bit about myself in terms of being a mod. I've been a mod on another board for maybe a year and a half or so, so I know how everything works. I'm a university student, so I might be really busy sometiPost too long.

Dare you enter the realm of /mu/

The sticky exists for a reason, to get started

-Read the fucking rules before you post, in the reply below

-Catalog for lazy people:


-Check out music made by the people of the board




-The /mu/ wiki


-Where can I download X?

>4chan archive/sharethreads - https://rbt.asia/mu/ (8archive.moe used to be a thing, and maybe it will be again some day)

>Soulseek - http://soulseekqt.net (or Nicotine+ for Linux users - https://www.nicotine-plus.org/)

>Google/Startpage/whatever + "zippy" "mega" "rar" or "blogspot"

-Discover music

1. Keep posts music related. Music critics/journalism are okay.

2. Self promotion doesn't deserve its own thread. Otherwise, the board would be flooded with it. Post your Bandcamp stuff in the Bandcamp thread here >>34317 and your Soundcloud stuff in the Soundcloud thread here >>52227. If it isn't on Bandcamp or Soundcloud, post it in either of those threads anyway. These two websites tend to be the only ones used frequently enough to warrant their own threads.

3. If you want to make a thread to ask a question but it won't generate discussion, post it in the questions that don't deserve their own thread thread here >>80813. This is to stop the board from being littered with threads that nobody wants to reply to. This includes identifying the song in a webm/mp4, identifying the genre of something, and requests. This list will grow and shrink the more users complain about things. Complaints about moderation or suggestions for the board don't deserve their own threads either, unless they're extremely important. They go in the meta thread here >>79867.

4. NSFW album covers etc are okay, but put them under spoilers.

Quality posts, I listen to many of these bands, saved the image.

Pic related is my NSBM collection. My favorites are Dark Fury, Order Of The Death's Head, Totenburg and Wodulf. I seriously recommend you listen to Order Of The Death's Head demo Antisémite and their debut Hakenkreuz, it's top quality stuff. Wodulf's demo Wargus Esto is also something you shouldn't miss.


I'm ashamed to say that I didn't know Kansas until a few days ago (yeah, not really metal, I know).

You must have shit hearing, otherwise you would hear the ringing.



It's definitely got sound in it. If you're that skeptical, open it up in Audacity or something. You have to have been assraping your ears for years having your music too loud if you can't hear 14KHz, unless you're, like, 70 years old.

How do you listen to music? I mean, surely you don't just sit back, play the music and stand still. Is that how you actually are supposed to listen to music?

All the time no matter what I'm doing. I really enjoy listening to music through different speakers. I'll play through earbuds when walking around campus and in class, through my headphones when browsing imageboards or playing video games, through my laptop when in the shower, in my car when driving, and through my televisions surround sound bluetooth player when drinking. It's amazing how much a song changes when played through different speakers.

I just listen to music whenever I can, on my computer, or maybe laying in bed.

This album is fucking great, Pendulum Man is the best track.


Probably my favorite Post Rock album of all time. Even though they're a complete Talk Talk rip off, I enjoy this even more than Talk Talk strangely enough.

They pretty much are, but it gives me more of a summer night feel, rather than say, Laughing Stock's comfy late-afternoon winter feel.

ITT: We talk about our favorite synthwave artists/songs


It just feels like true 80's/90's movie tunes, it's got that vibe and progression that incites the images of old 80's films in your head

favorite song by him is easily Overdrive, from Redline

mostly becauseo f that sick fucking solo it makes my dick hard

This isn't really necessarily related to the thread, but can anyone suggest some good Hotline Miami -esque music to me? And I don't want the generic synthbeats or Perturbator knockoffs but something more akin to the whole ost, especially something like Scattle's and El Huervo's music.

some old soviet good shit

The guy who made that song also made this one which is a remix of an existing song that absolutely blows the original out of the water and away in terms of quality, talk such an astronomical level of being cucked.


I dont visit this board often but I just remembered this post and wanted to see how you guys felt about it. I am surprised by how differing the opinions on it are. But thats actually a good thing.


I am glad you like it. Your welcome.


Pretty much this, I mean at the time I made that post, thread IDs were on so he knew both of those posts are me. Pretty good rundown of the situation though.


It was at 8k when I posted it now its at 26k so some people are now enjoying it. I am glad you enjoyed it. I appreciate introducing people to new music that they can enjoy.


You are entitled to your own opinion but perhaps you weren't listening close enough, the song goes through multiple evolutions in the chord progression and different music layers layering on top of each other, and at the time I had listened to way over half of all the songs posted in the thread up until that point and all the songs were a basic static 30-45 second loops that did not change or anything and it just repeated for the duration of all of those songs and it comparatively was more unique then everything else posted. So I figured I would share.


You are entitled to your own opinion, but you didnt provide a counter example to perhaps support your argument. What is less bland then my song, I donPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I feel like the original wave of synthwave that's got nothing but nonstop 80's cultural references is completely dead and devoid of real content, not that that stops NewRetroWave or what have you from beating the dead horse. This has lead to three things.

1: Artists (either partially or in full) diverging from 80's themes and concepts and instead using synthwave to explore new worlds or experiment

>Ex: Dan Terminus, Gost, Magic Sword, Zarrad

2: Artists forgoing any cultural baggage and instead focusing solely on the musical element of perfecting catchy and effective synth bangers, sometimes mixing in elements of more modern electronica.

>Ex: Makeup And Vanity Set, El Tigr3, Tonebox

3: Artists mining from the 90's and maybe the 70's instead, with varying degrees of subtlety.

>Ex: Megahit, Surgeryhead, Volkor X(?)

In a roundabout way this brings me to Vista of Chaos, some fresh darksynth from which may or may not apply to all three catagories above. It's creative, it's menacing, it never stops changing and it never loses pace. Check it out, or at the very least the webms I'm posting.

I unironically liked this album when it was new and after giving it a listen after all these years that opinion hasn't changed.

What do you guys tell people when they ask you what kind of music you listen to?

4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



The last time someone asked me that was 14 years ago when I was in high school. I replied 'Ronan Keating' and my classmates laughed at me. If someone asked me that question now, I would reply 'classical music and anime music videos'.


Country and rap, exclusively.


I once overheard a conversation at the next table with this question. Some basic bitch wanted to apply to her old music teacher as an assistant for piano with kids.

She started stuttering not really knowing what to answer, but I remember that she mentioned "I kinda like punk, you know like green day" and "yeah I also like that mozart's symphony, you know that jupiter one, I listened to it just yesterday"


I ask them to cease communication with me.

I don't deny there is a difference. I deny that the difference is audible.

Yeah I mean the best headphones I have are ATH-M50s, so I admit they're pretty shit.
