    Joey Jordison has died aged 46. As a drummer, and a metal fan, this shit sucks.

    Holy shit. Only 46. Apparently just died in his sleep somehow. Big RIP. Shame he never made up with the rest of Slipknot, he was a really talented musician.

    Wow that blows. Mental thing to just randomly happen. Had it in my head he had a health condition for some reason?


    RIP.

    Damn, that's a shame. He was pretty damn talented. RIP. And yes, the health issues were there, he had transverse myelitis. He mentioned it was part of the reason why Slipknot and him parted ways. It's basically a disease where your spinal cord is is always inflamed and can really fuck up the rest of your body cause of it.

    They're playing Brum too my man. Seen 'em twice before and they are worth the money.

    Re: General Metal Chit Chat.

    Obviously Ghost are huge but I've never really checked them out. After Ed posted their new song I really dug it and have been listening to Ghost non-stop since. The groove/melodies/riffs are off the charts. I've had like 10 songs on repeat so far and haven't even gotten through everything yet.

    Good shit. Thank you for sharing in here and giving me a reason to check them out.

    Re: General Metal Chit Chat.

    I had never really checked them out til last year. Always thought they were church burning black metal or some weirdo shit like that but nah, was surprised. They're fantastic although bit of a letdown/quite simple lyrically at times which I can find jarring for their act.

    Hunter's Moon is my shit right now but always liked Cirice too. I think it was Fuji or Booty who drafted them (Ghost) in the song draft and they got me hooked.

    Just desperate for this new Rolo Tomassi album to land. It seems like theyre continuing in the same vein as their last album. Well worth checking out if you are into prog stuff. New Underoath is also pretty fucking good.

    Yeah I find Ghost's lyrics pretty elementary from what I'm hearing. I wasn't sure if it was like, intentional in the sense that it all fits some overarching thing or what but lyrics leave a lot to be desired. With how masterful the melodies are on top of the arrangements, the underwhelming lyrics really stand out.

    Cirice has such a killer fucking intro. Once it hit my ears I immediately picked up my guitar to learn it.

    Re: General Metal Chit Chat.

    The whole guise of being a satanic black metal band who sing pop rock is def a big part of Ghost's appeal. My first exposure to them was at a festival and I hadn't heard their stuff before, I laughed my ass off when he started singing. They are basically a stadium rock band now but they do that stuff well.

    I dug the last Rolo Tomassi album and 'Drip'. Debating whether to get a ticket for them next month but don't think I know enough of their catalogue to justify it.


    New Cult Of Luna out soon too, which will be fantastic like all their previous stuff.

    The Matt Heafy black metal project's first track was promising enough, though his cleans really don't fit that vibe for me. Also the weird Nintendo coin noise licks feel a bit cheesy.

    Re: General Metal Chit Chat.

    I was like that Cox when their last album came out. Binged on their back catalogue like crazy and now I’d say they are a top 10 band for me. As a Christian I don’t care much for the satanic lyrics but musically they’re my jam.

    Yeah Steve I quite like Into the Night so I’m eagerly awaiting COL new album.
