Alright faggots, as promised, I decided to make actual CDs for an Autistic Rage Festival album, and since we couldn't really decide which one should it be, I decided it should be no other than the debut.

>How do I get one?

You send me an email to yungdaggerdick@nigge.rs and we talk about it.

>How much it costs?

The shipping cost is all you need to pay for, which is up to you how much you want to pay:

<If you want registered mail, it will cost 2020 HUF to European countries (not only EU members) and 2175 HUF to the rest of the world.

<If you say fuck it gimme your cheapest, that will be 835 HUF ($2.96) to Europe and 935 HUF ($3.32) to the rest of the world.

The cheapest option means the it won't be registered, I can't track it down and if this shit gets lost on the way to you it will be fucking lost and the post office wont refund. It also arrives like weeks later.

The package obviously ships from Hungary, it contains a gluten free fragile-ass jewel case and 2 CDs I will draw dicks on. I will also draw other shit on it if you ask nicely.

You can listen to the masterpiece here:


I'm not sure how many of y'all gonna order one, I can make about 10 copies, so grab it while it's hot.

To the people who reported >>100699, it is in fact related to music. OP is too much of a dunce to post a link to it or its name or anything related to it other than this album cover that even Tineye couldn't find and a two-word message. I would like to say again that if any of you want threads or posts like that (or the other one that was reported) deleted, come up with a rule against them that won't ruin the board and we can all discuss it here.

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 >>97953. If it isn't on Bandcamp or SoundCloud, post it in either of those threads anyway. They tend to be the only ones used frequently enough to warrant threads.

3. If you want 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 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.

5. No duplicate threads or spam.

If something doesn't break a rule, no action will be taken. If you don't like something about the board or things other people are posting, mention it in the meta thread and maybe we can make a rule against it.

Anyone else notice this phenomenon? Basically, a music act makes their magnum opus, goes on tour for an extended period of time, and when they come back they never quite reach the heights of their previous work. They make little to no memorable hits, and the few that do chart are often forgotten in the grand scheme of things.


>Releases Black Album in 1991

>Goes touring for 4 years

>Releases Load in 1996

Pink Floyd

>Releases The Wall in 1979

>Goes touring for 2 years, works on a movie the year after

>Releases TFC in 1983


>Releases Achtung Baby in 1991

>Goes touring for 5 years but does release another album in this timeframe

>Releases Pop in 1997

And I'm not really referring to the "sell out" albums. A band or singer can continue to grow stronger even after they have "sold out", case in point R.E.M. who made AFTP in 1992 yet had a string of further successes for many years after its release. I'm referring to the band's definitive album with an EP's worth of chart-topping hits, followed by a longass tour where they seem to have the life sucked out of them, before a new album which is a mere shadow of its predecessor. I could list more examples but those were the 3 I distinctly recall.

10k Days was a good album though


File: 86846ed5cf9a5e4⋯.jpg (86.58 KB, 600x387, 200:129, A-66916-1517669907-5121.jp….jpg)

Alan Parsons Project, now this one's a little more subtle:

>Band release four solid albums in the late 1970s

>Fifth release (Turn of a Friendly Card) is considered a weak link between the first four and the sixth

>Sixth album, Eye in the Sky, is the duo's most commercially successful album

>Pre-emptively release a Greatest Hits compilation in 1983, as if they knew their time in the sun was drawing to a close

>Make five further releases that are utter shit, the fifth released by Woolfson as a solo effort

>Pair embarrass themselves with meaningless solo works for the rest of their lives

I had to do quite some digging, as it doesn't appear they ever toured, but I did find something that could correlate to their downfall; the fact Parsons stopped engineering other artists' albums after 1978 and the fact he stopped producing them after 1979. It was his work with The Beatles and Pink Floyd that made him great, and once he'd grown too absorbed in his own work, he'd lost the knowledge on how to make a sonically-pleasing and memorable album. This was already evident by the time he made The Sicilian Defense to piss off Arista and took 18 months to make their fifth album. Eye in the Sky appears to have been as well-loved as it was because it was an experiment and every track on it was different; sooner or later they would've found something worthy of radio airplay.

If Alan Parsons had kept producing and engineering albums from other artists, he might have produced 10 solid albums for his Project. Because he would have been able to "take notes" from more musically fighting the urge to say "superior" or "advanced" adept acts and adapt them for his own usage, evolving his style as time progressed.



Same with The Doors.

THe whole band was fascinating and released great albums then they went popular, started touring.

The fame and bitches went to Morrison's head, became alcoholic and the band went downhill then he died soon after. I'm not quite sure where's the line that seperates the albums because it was ups and downs for the band until it went total haywire.

Same thing with The Offspring:

>Released their first album -> absolute gem, original, a few guys' first experiment as a band making songs about what they want

>next 2 albums go popular


>forcing out new albums because reasons

>trying to fit in to the late 90's trends abandoning their original style = garbage whining and "hip" music

>today: the whining late 90's style stuck with them and they still force it because money and mainstream fans to appeal to




I think the biggest problem that nobody talks about is touring as a whole and how much it takes out of an act, physically and mentally. If I was a record exec I'd limit my acts to publicly perform on 10 dates within a 2 month period (so approximately 1 show a week) each year, giving them the remaining 10 months to work on their next project.

You read all these stories about how wrong tours can go. Fights, riots BREAK STUFF, overdoses, and even deaths. A tour bus crash is how we lost one of the greatest bassists of all time at just 24 years of age. And then you look at how many shows these acts cram into their tours, and it's no wonder they deteriorate as badly as they do.

For example, Pink Floyd played 157 shows almost non-stop from September 1987 - August 1988, 3 - 4 shows a week, with occasional gaps in between no bigger than a few weeks. No wonder it took them 5 years to come up with The Division Bell.



Interesting. Are there any examples of the opposite effect then, i.e. bands that stop touring but still maintain a level of quality/improve? The Beatles released Revolver, Sgt. Peppers, White Album, and Abbey Road after they stopped, often considered the highlight of the band's career.

Can someone hook me up with some good math rock? I really enjoy the poppy/post-hardcore vibe in the vein of This Town Needs Guns and Dance Gavin Dance.

Battles - Mirrored

Gloss Drop is also really good.


I searched Math Rock on YouTube because I had only learned of the genre and it came back with old School House Rock videos and a playlist of seemingly computer made guitar music kept to an impossibly perfect 4:4 time signature, along with every other instrument. I've come to learn this was not the right thing. What is a good introductory album?

Not really one to shill, especially for someone else's music, but this guy does amazing work and basically nobody's heard of him. So far he's combined math rock with electronic music as System Ready, and with midwestern emo as Painted Worlds. They're both great.

What if "grunge" never happened? Hypothetically speaking what would the music scene be like? Now I like a few of the band's (pic related, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Melvins, U-Men) but how would it pan out?

3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



Probably all of the same bands would have been just as popular as they eventually became anyhow. Jane's Addiction, Chili Peppers, RATM, White Zombie, Pixies, etc.. They already were kind of the face of "alternative" until the "grunge" thing. Seattle only kind sped it all up into the mainstream.



Yeah, honestly without Grunge we'd probably still have had big gains for alt. rock, alt. metal, and groove metal. All the bands you mentioned + REM, They Might Be Giants, Cake, Pantera, Faith No More, Primus, Nine Inch Nails, etc. would all be big anyway.

We might see a little more longevity for glam metal, though. Even if Grunge wasn't really dealing the killing blow, it seems like a lot of guys from that era who played in '80s glam/hair/trad./power/pop metal bands really thought that it was since it effectively took over the "heavy rock" scene and was decidedly antithetical to the clean, technical, poppy stuff that the '80s hair bands had been playing. Some of those guys were pretty devastated and still have grudges against Cobain & Co. Keep in mind that glam metal had already seen ridiculous longevity from its precursors in Van Halen's late '70s output to Slave to the Grind and Warrant's last hits in the early '90s. There's a chance it could have kept on a little longer.

>Hypothetically speaking what would the music scene be like?

Mother Love Bone would've been the band to break open Seattle to the mainstream, as they were getting a lot hype. Had Andy Wood lived, Apple would be probably spoken of with same reverence as Nevermind. Additionally, the term "grunge" would probably never have come into use as bands like Alice in Chains and Soundgarden were already marketed as metal bands, with the former always considering itself as a metal act first and foremost.

>Now I like a few of the band's (pic related, Soundgarden, Mudhoney, Melvins, U-Men) but how would it pan out?

Still would've blown up, as SG were already getting some mainstream coverage around the time of Louder Than Love.

Nirvana really threw a wrench into the works as their punk ethos really wasn't that indicative of what most of those other bands sounded like. The fact that they got as big as they did really was a fluke.


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.


I think the 2000's would've been more punkish. Early 90's bands had a fair amount of late punk bands rise up and there were a lot of experiments in mixing them with other genres. Grunge was just one of the offshoots. The whole reason for the uprising of these bands were probably the sudden change of the mainstream music into the bleached ass, pretentious, feel-good fantasy world of "pop(ular)", which everybody hated.

The superseeding of rock and metal genre by the new "mainstream" proved further that record labels had full control of mass concumption by allowing only what they seem fit. The satanic panic also contributed to this which absolutely disappeared in the 2000's and even weirder dark shit came to surface. I could go on and on about how the jews got hold of the entire music business and engineered the 21st century degenerate kids by MTV and radio since the Beatles.

I can only say that punk was sort of a voice of reason from the generation that was completely disillusioned by reality and hated everything that justified it.

I was a huge Nirvana fan in my teenage years but after all that I've learnt about how stuff works in the west nowadays I'm not surprised that the mainstream was absolutely fine with letting "the kids" make demoralising music and promoting it. MTV was full of it. Hollywood was all over these obscure bands of "doom sirens" while for those that were completely oblivious to it got the same boomer music like U2 and the rest.

You see blink182, sum41, green day and all alike were manufactured punk bands that sang about going against the mainstream and being "hip" while they were just rebranded Backstreet Boys, unlike the real counterculture that wanted to be in rise.

The offspring is a perfect example of how this worked:

1. It was the usual garage punk band with great lyrics and original sound and gets them masively popular.

2. Mainstream gets saturated by gay shit and the band gets stuck in irrelevance and increasingly nervous

3. You either become past or adapt to the tends. They did and it became "pop" SHIT.

to be clear Offspring started as a surf punk band. Their music represented a good breath of fresh air to me when I found their early songs. I mean it speaks into the future so precisely. Their song Tehran is very prophetic as it foreshadows that the US will make it's last stand for the greater israel plan in Iran, our next "Vietnam (((we))) waited for" and all the other songs are clearly anti government and lashing out on all the liars and wants to motivate the audiance to be clear cut, clean and honest. Fortunately they kept their lyrical genius but the 00's left a mark on their music. They're one of the few mainstream bands that survived without being completely MKultra. Surfer groups back in the day were known to be "infested" by nationalsocialists since the 60's along with motorcyclists groups. Great stuff.

I'm not a fan, but they have some good songs. Pretty Hate Machine is probably my favorite album, not that that's saying much.

NIN have a lot of releases and they're all very different. Pretty Hate Machine is kind of an industrial pop album, The Downward Spiral is an industrial rock album, Ghosts is an ambient album, Bad Witch is a jazz-rock-industrial fusion, etc.

My favorite album is Ghosts don't bother looking up reviews/comments about, they all say "omg old town road sampled this!!1!" or "omg xxxtentacion sampled this!!1!!", for whatever reason a lot of rap artists sampled Ghosts but your favorite album might be With Teeth or Year Zero.

Depends on how much you like edgy industrial rock or dark ambient.

>is The Downward Spiral any good

Nigger what. It's one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the 90s, and possibly ever.


>for whatever reason a lot of rap artists sampled Ghosts

I'm sure that's because it was licenced under Creative Commons so they didn't need to give royalties, just songwriting credit. Fine choice of album though, Ghosts is under-appreciated.


First of all, who the fuck are we to decide what you like to hear?

If you are into "Joy Division", "The Smiths", "Radiohead", and other depressive weird fantasy then you should definitely check it out.

I'm saying this as a non listener of these and not as a hater. I appreciate all these bands' artistic values but I definitely don't recommend listening to it because of their tendency to drive you down an emotional downwards spiral.

Never keep these at arms lenght.

That sounds vague as fuck. This album sounds pretty much exactly like most of the others so I guess I had a style, just super generic and nondescript.
