Yamamoto, what you said is true. If you see me, you wouldn't mistake me for a metalhead because I don't look the part. Yet I consider myself very knowledgeable in metal. I think the manner of dressing is a phase in being a rocker or metalhead. Ten years ago, I would only wear black and be in my best rocker attire. But as time went on, I matured and realized I didn't have to be in rock garb all the time to be a rocker. So I shed the clothing but didn't stop listening to the music.

When i was in college me and my 2 pals then are the only metalhead the college of mass communication we wore tight pants then mostly levis 503 or 509 jeans but I didnt wear a black shirt even then kasi naiinitan ako ngayon kung nasa ibang bansa ako maybe i will wear black just try and wear a black outfit these days tignan ko na lang pag hindi naubos ang tubig mo sa katawan sa init ng panahon. seriously, my pals back then listen to metal, read magazines, exchange infos, etc. coz we really like the music unlike the so-called meetalheads now na puro porma lang. I just hate it when i see a poseur metaller wearing a mayhem or an emperor shirt as if its the next fashion thing. of coourse there' the maturity factor, you can't wear your fave iron maiden shirt in the office di ba?

He, he. :) I can. Actually hindi Maiden shirt sinusuot ko. Minsan Dimmu Borgir, Morbid Angel or even Darkthrone. Dress down kasi kami during holidays and weekends kaya puede. I work in a call center btw. Usually graveyard pa sked ko so okay lang ang naka-itim kasi di mainit. Nagpapatugtog pa nga ako ng mga cds ko like The Crown, Carcass, Nile, Maiden, Slayer etc kasi supervisory position na ako. Nakakatawa nga reaction ng mga officemates ko pag naririnig nila yung pinapatugtog ko.

I work in eTelecare. I just lurk and read the posts in the Call Center chapter thread 'coz I just want to get a sense of how people working at Call Centers feel being part of this industry. I'll post there soon and hopefully we can have worthwhile discussions about our chosen profession. Welcome naman ako di ba? :unsure:

Cool you're lucky that you can wear your shirts over there at work and the fact that you are in graveyard shift!! BTW, I called up metal disc last week and I might visit it one of these days.

That's good to hear. What will you be getting from metaldisc?

Metalheads, it's that time of the month again. The last Friday of the month. The time for METAL MADNESS 6: Under the Influence. Expect to hear cover songs from Type O Negative, Danzig, At The Gates, Emperor and a whole lot more. We'll also debut a song from San Francisco-based Pinoy thrash act Death Angel's new album "The Art of Dying." So catch us tonight from 10pm - 12 amover at NU 107. I'll be using the Mad Tyrant as my monicker. Hope you guys enjoy the show.

So Death Angel is still around but without the original vocalist I supposed? I was mad for this group along with some bands from the bay area when I was just starting to listen to metal during my college days. I'm just glad na they are still around, btw I saw a picture of them in a back issue of an metal maniacs magazine they have grown old and tumaba na din sila.

They reformed. They first got to back together in 2001 to play for the Thrash of the Titans benefit gig in San Francisco. Since then they started gigging and an idea was hatched to create new material and make a new album. The product of which is called "the Art of Dying". The original singer, Mark Osugueda is still around. The only original member who left was the bass player, I forgot his name - it's either Gus or Dennis Pepa. Rumors has it that he is now based here in the Philippines but he is adamant in not talking about his days with Death Angel.

Anyway, if you caught the show, you probably heard the new Death Angel song called "Thrown to the Wolves" from the aformentioned album. It's quite good. It's a fast song with polished production. Not as thrash sounding as before though.

Sorry bro di na napuna yung reply mo, Ive already inquired if they got cd's of Labyrinth, The Gathering, Lacuna Coil, Theatre of Tragedy and Therion, di kasi complete yung collectin ko ng cd's ng mga bands na ito. It's good to know that DA (as they are fondly called back in the late 80's and early 90's) has reformed still got some posters of this band along with some other bands that i got from some metal magazines then.

Just had to make a comment... I tuned in to Metal Madness last friday while driking booze, eating pulutan and playing billiards with friends. It was awesome :boo:

Here's hoping it will become a once a week special. Waiting for the last friday of each month is too long. More power B)

Thanks for enjoying the show! We had fun doing it too. Can't wait for the next episode. We've already selected the songs and we have two guest bands, Fuseboxx and Faster Than Satan scheduled to appear.

With regard to having Metal Madness more frequently, I couldn't agree more! However, once a week would be too much for us doing it (me, Mr. SLH, Dylan is an exception coz she works at NU) since we have day jobs with days off that don't fall on weekends. What we think would be ideal is to have it every 2 weeks for three hours on a Friday night. That would rule! So, if you like the show so much and want to hear it more often, pester NU 107 to make us twice a month! The fastest way to do this is by sending NU text messages thru their text jock.

If you want to join the yahoogroups of Metal Madness and receive updates, send us requests and feedback and have some worthwhile communication with our fellow metal brothers, pm me your email address so I can invite you.

That's alright dude! Did you notice that Lacuna Coil's most recent album, "Comalies" has been released locally? It's sold for 450 pesos and it's a proper local release as Vicor (which is not a usual local distributor of foriegn releases) is distributing it locally. I got it a week ago and I love it! Cristina Scabbia's voice is haunting and she is drop dead gorgeous too! Medyo corny nga lang ang pag-market sa Lacuna Coil as they're being lumped in the same category as Evanessence. In fact, there's a sticker on the CD (not in my copy though) which says "Lacuna Coil - sounds like Evanessence, but rocks harder!" Ha, ha! Ang corny!

Yeah, it's cool to know that DA is back. I just might order their new album soon.

I'm waiting for my order from MetalDisc to arrive. I ordered Exodus' latest and Maiden's 7th son cd.

Lacuna Coil & Evanescence should not be compared. Lacuna Coil is goth while Evanescence belongs to one of those nu metal groups w/ a female vocalist.

Exactly my point. The problem with the mainstream music industry is that is being run by business-people out to make a quick buck instead of music-people who are out to develop bands anad artists to create great music. I'm pretty sure the reason Lacuna Coil's cd was released locally was due to Evanessence's popularity. The mindset of the people behind the music labels is, "Band X is very popular right now, let's look for an almost similar sounding band which almost has the same image, and market them as the next Band X." That's why nu metal/rap metal propagated itself. It wasn't because of the bands. It was because of the music industry. Rap metal bands didn't get signed because they were good or had talent. They got signed because the music industry wanted to feed MTV and the mainstream audience more Korn/Limp Bizkit bands which were popular back then. Let's just hope that the female fronted goth-lite band image doesn't get too popular.

Here's a good example of how clueless record label bigwigs are about music. I was with a friend and we visited the A&R of of one of the local record labels. The A&R of that label introduced us to his boss, the Record label manager. He introduced my friend as having a new wave band. The record lable manager responds by saying, "Ah talaga? Bumabalik na talaga ang new wave no? Yung mga tipong Earth, Wind and Fire."

Yes I notice that Lacuna Coil's Comalies cd is locally available but I just cant stand the comparison between them and Evanescence. It's a nice cd to be really locally and I hope that Vicor would release their back catalogues. I read this article about The Gathering getting more exposure or breaks or whatever what with the "success" of Evanescence, for me there's really no point in comparing Evenescence with The Gathering, Lacuna Coil or any other real gothic/atmospheric metal underground band that's been around much longer than them. Evenescence music has a new metal feel to it so it just cannot be compared to the two aforementioned bands or any other real gothic metal band let's put aside the fact that Cristina Scabbia and Anneke Van Giersbergen are more charming than Amy Lee. :rolleyes:

This is also what happened in the 80's w/ the hair metal era. Even obscure bands got major label support that's why people get tired of having the generic power ballad songs. When Nirvana came out, people heard something new & the grunge era started.

That's funny.:) It states the plight of the local music industry. Instead of being ran by people knowledgeable about the music & who'll develop the artists, the industry is ran by corporate types who just wants to keep the big bucks coming. :(
