  1. Well, it could've been worse, and Metallica has certainly demonstrated that themselves.
  2. I was once quite a fan of the Nostalgia Critic. I even met him once at a convention a few years ago. But then came his review of Pink Floyd's The Wall, and he decided to "cover" several songs from the album and insert his own gripes with the movie and the band as the lyrics, and still have the nerve to call it "a love letter to Pink Floyd". I'm not even that big into Floyd, but I don't see the value proposition of listening to this over the original album, what with its sterile production and lyrics that aren't even funny. Also, you gotta love how lazy he is with the pun. "Ooh, change one letter, that's the pinnacle of comedy!" Beavis and Butt-Head got away with it because they were written as two dumb fictional teenagers. This is a 37-year-old man doing the same thing, but trying to pass it off as "humor". What a fall from grace.

    Progressive Rock Suggestions?

    Have you tried venturing out into the more modern bands of the genre? Dream Theater was certainly one of the first prog bands that I got into, and the metal crossover influence they exhibited certainly helped. Symphony X, Fates Warning and Haken are also a couple of great bands within the prog metal subgenre. Of course, my interest in Dream Theater led me out to search up some of the other projects the other members had taken part in. In particular, their former drummer, Mike Portnoy, had taken up a prog supergroup of sorts called Transatlantic. Transatlantic does more of a retro-prog style, harkening back to 70s style Yes, Genesis influence of sorts, with each member being a lead singer of some kind. Mike Portnoy needs no explanation. The keyboardist, Neal Morse, was once a part of Spock's Beard, another proggy outfit with a lot more mainstream appeal that still holds my attention. Nowadays, he has his own solo career where he plays music in that same vein, but if you're not a fan of Christian rock, avoid at all costs. Roine Stolt, the guitarist of Transatlantic's main band is the Flower Kings, once again, more of a retro-prog outfit, and his playing evokes more of a playing by feel rather than outright shredder. More of a flowery uplifting mood to their music. He was also in another band called The Tangent, which I really like, where the lyrics tend to be more socially conscious, usually referencing topical events and political issues. They toy around with the prog trappings a bit, with a good example being their concept album about WORK. Marillion is more of a neo-prog band which I haven't listened to much, but I do like some songs from them. Pendragon I was able to get into more, which has a lot of emotive guitar playing which really captured me. Moon Safari is more flowery prog goodness with a lot of vocal harmonies. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg. You can go to www.progarchives.com and make tons of new discoveries over there.

    The DWmegawad Club plays: Akeldama

    Akeldama is a city in Jerusalem, and is an Aramaic term for "fields of blood", which considering how dense with monsters this whole WAD is, I would say it's pretty appropriate. It's also a kickass album by The Faceless.

  13. While it is quite amazing, from what I understand, it can't be released on idgames in its current format because it contains some modified assets from the originating Doom 2 IWAD in order for it to function in Vanilla Doom. I know maxmanium has offered to make a dehacked to try to fix this, but nothing has come of it as of yet. If anyone wants to PM him about it, be my guest.
