Doom Metal NielsBohron

Hail Darkness - Luciferan Dawn † Coven Of The Blackened One

New Occult doom rock trio with a very "classic Sabbath meets Jefferson Airplane" sound. It's a little early to tell, but they appear to be worthy successors to the throne of Witch Mountain.

  • I think that both of your examples only worked because there was a contemporary, more militant version of the same movement, and the peaceful protestors were seen as a more palatable alternative.

    As police and military units cracked down on militant revolutionaries/protestors, the people remaining in those movements moved toward more non-violent methods just as mainstream perception grew to see non-violent protest as more reasonable.

    So the non-violent movement was pivotal in both cases, but I didn't think non-violent protest accomplishes either goal on its own.

    Every Time I Die - Ebolarama

    I saw Alkaline Trio at the 2002 Warped Tour, which was fantastic (edit: in retrospect, I'd say 2000-2003 was truly the Golden Age of Warped Tour) Out of all the amazing bands I saw/discovered, the one I still listen to to this day is ETiD, so I connected my favorite song from the 2002 era, "Ebolarama"

    A Perfect Circle - Counting Bodies Like Sheep to the Rhythms of the War Drums

    "Go back to sleep!"

    It's been linked before but it's been stuck in my head ever since the Luda song got posted

    sunn O))) - "My Wall"
  • That's kinda their schtick. It's not really my thing, but some metalheads rally get into the tone/noise worship. Personally, any music that is hard to tell apart from a diesel generator is not really my thing, but to each their own.

    Sleep - Dragonaut

    When I clicked link to the Sunn O))) song, YouTube Music's next recommendation was for Sleep, so here's my favorite "single" by that band, "Dragonaut"

    edit: If I was to link my favorite song by Sleep, it'd be Dopesmoker, but not everyone is into an hour-long album consisting of a single song, so I usually play to the masses

    Black Flag - My War

    In the Don Henley song, he references "a Dead Head sticker on a Cadillac," but in the cover by The Ataris, it's updated to "a Black Flag sticker on a Cadillac," so I thought of the title track to my favorite Black Flag album

    Rose Royce - Car Wash

    "Le Freak" is a prime example of funk/RnB evolving into disco, so I always need to follow up "Le Freak" with one of the three best disco-funk songs:

    Today I posted "Car Wash" because that intro is so completely capitvating and unlike most anything else from the disco era (although I suppose the same could be said of "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood")

    Reverend Horton Heat - Psychobilly Freakout

    Hot rods make me think of greasers and pinup girls, which makes me think of psychobilly

    Many White Americans Fail to Assimilate
  • Oh, you're 100% right. It's just frustrating and sad that Ronnie Van Zant died, because I don't think Skynyrd were really associated with that ideology before the plane crash. They were white trash from the South, sure, but they were also a bunch of hippies trying to show that there was more to the American South than the racism decried by Neil Young in "Southern Man."

    Such is the duality of The Southern Thing.

  • Many White Americans Fail to Assimilate
  • I was about to say, Skynyrd is actually really fucking good. It's a shame it's permanently associated with racist trash

  • Free Speech
  • Wait, it's all projection?

    Islands - Jogging Gorgeous Summer

    Plum's connection to Gomez got me thinking about songs and bands that are tied to specific memories, which reminded me this song by Islands, which I listened to extensively while on one of my first and best vacations I took with my wife.

    edit: Also, this is a fantastic summer/tropical holiday song

    Placebo - Pure Morning

    Something about the delivery on the chorus by the vocalist from Girl in a Coma reminded me of the singer in this song by Placebo.

    Also the singer from Placebo is pretty androgenous, which continues the whole Bowie theme, too .

    Bob Dylan - Maggie's Farm

    From one song about the struggles of the working class to another

    The Hand, The Furnace, The Straight Face - project86
  • That's a tenuous connection for a band I haven't thought about in a decade (let alone listened to), but I like it.

    Creedence Clearwater Revival - Someday Never Comes

  • Socrates was undoubtedly a great thinker and hugely impactful, but the Greeks did not invent science. The scientific method was not explicitly formulated until Ibn al-Haytham published The Book of Optics in 1027 CE, and I'd argue that in the absence of the scientific method, most of the Greek philosophers were basically just arguing in an attempt to sway the audience as opposed to experimenting to find "truth.". The Greeks were one of the first groups to emphasize empiricism, but that a very different thing.

    Saying that all of Western thought is based on a single Greek philosopher minimizes the contributions of anyone outside that tradition and I think we can do better than that.

  • Know the difference!!!
  • Oddly enough I usually see/write it fen/bog marsh.

    I was going to ask about the order of adjectives, actually, since I find esoteric grammar rules oddly interesting and have been on a bit of a "adjectives hierarchy" kick lately.

  • As someone who lives in this same town, black bears are more like overweight raccoons.

    Fun fact, our "city hall" is at the tiny community airport, which also had a restaurant with the best chicken wings in town (salt and vinegar wings FTW). The restaurant was still going when this happened in 2019, so my guess is the bear smelled the food and went looking for the kitchen, only to get sidetracked by the city council meeting.

  • Joy Division- Transmission
  • Weird, it didn't show up for me on Voyager or on the desktop site until this morning. Huh.

    Oh, well. Cheers

  • Do Christians really think that being educated is sinful and should be avoided?
  • You'll be hard pressed to find someone deny basic science in today's world.

    They don't outright deny it (out loud), but they cast doubt and equivocate about the parts that don't agree with their preexisting worldview.

    Edit: not to mention they often disagree with scientists on what constitutes "basic" or "settled" science.

  • Do Christians really think that being educated is sinful and should be avoided?
  • Jesuits have done some decent work for humanity, but they are not scientists, mostly because they start from a premise they want to be true and find evidence for it instead of the other way around.

    Edit: in fact, why did knowledge need to be "curated" through the Dark Ages? I'll give you a hint: it starts a "C" and ends with an "atholicism"

  • Neil Young - The Needle and the Damage Done
  • I don't know acoustics as well as electrics, but Neil Young is known for being very, very loyal to the guitars he uses on stage, so the random forums and interviews all seem to agree:

    His main acoustics are a Martin D-45 that he got in '67, a pre-war D-18, and a D-28.

    The source is a forum post that seems to be quoting a guitar tech that worked with him and Crazy Horse in the 80's.

    Neil Young - The Needle and the Damage Done

    From one song about heroin use to another. Also, Neil Young is often described as "The Godfather of Grunge," and Alice in Chains is one of the quintessential Seattle grunge bands.

    Male birth control breakthrough safely switches off fit sperm for a while
  • Not OP, but mine was really pretty manageable. 2 days of sitting in an easy chair and icing my balls, 2 days of "walking is fine, but avoid any sudden movements," and a week of "it's a little sore, but it doesn't really hurt." After that, it was about 2-3 weeks where I didn't really notice it unless I moved the wrong way too suddenly (whereupon I'd get a quick twinge, but nothing too bad).

    Really a pretty small cost for the benefits. I don't really like painkillers, but I do recommend some THC gummies for the first week and a fresh series to binge

  • Joy Division- Transmission
  • Even if the connection between songs seems obvious to you, you're supposed to write a quick description of what the connection is...

  • I think John actually did drive a bus for a while? Not sure if I read or dreamed that

    I remember reading something like that too, but have no source.

    A cannon fires projectiles, a canon is an accepted body of related works. NBD, but I have this weird compulsion to correct misused homonyms, so...sorry? You're welcome? Either way, have a great day, fellow John K. Samson fan!

    Kendrick Lamar - Alright

    Dr Dre is one of the producers and members of NWA, and he went on to mentor a young rapper from Compton named Kendrick Lamar.

    Also, both songs are heavily critical of the disproportionate policing of Black neighborhoods and have been used as protest songs by the Black Lives Matter movement
