    I wasn't able to see RATM since they pulled out of the European leg of the tour on medical advice.

    The new Megadeth album seems good so far, though!

    There's a new Darkthrone album. It is very, very good.

    So I’m at a Mayhem concert right now. One of very few places these days where I have the right hair

    Just saw that on FB, that's fucking awesome. How was the show? Who the hell is fronting Mayhem these days?

    It was good! I don’t really know much about them but the performance was cool and the sound was mixed really well. Front dude was someone who was with them a long time ago, took a break and came back.

    Ok, so one thing I do know is that part of the whole Norwegian black metal thing is low-fi recordings, and I find it hard to get past that. As I said, they sounded great live, but tried listening to them on the way to work today and it's ... it's just hard to listen to!

    Hahah, yeah, that is part of the aesthetic, especially for Mayhem. You do get some on the other end of the spectrum like Dimmu Borgir, who put a lot of work into production and have like full backing orchestras, but Mayhem specifically is all about Lo-Fi.

    Ahh, and it's Attila still fronting them. He was the guy that took over after Dead killed himself, if I remember correctly. One of the few of that bunch of weirdos that uses his real name.
