This is a catch-all board for the discussion of pre-2000s content, besides anime and manga (that's what >>>/ar/ is for). If specific topics here get enough traction they may be spun off into separate boards. Global rules still apply, so don't trash the place. >Of all the boards, in all the websites, in all the net, she walks into mine…

80s metal thread anon 12/05/2022 (Mon) 20:10:29 No. 360 [Reply]
I just found this board and I already feel home, so I decided to start a thread about some of my favorite 80s metal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdhb2oG-d3A One of the greatest prog/heavy metal albums of all time. One of the first metal albums to experiment with synthesizers and wow did it sound futuristic for 1986. However, Queensryche reached their zenith 2 years later with this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8_JqGPteKk Operation: Mindcrime, a politically-charged concept album about a drug addict named Nikki and his role in a shadowy revolutionary organization. The moral in short is that there will be jackals who exploit people with ideals for their own gain. Another interesting one is Iron Maiden's "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMuGG0ajtCs Their most progressive rock influenced release to date; similar to Queensryche's "Rage for Order" in some ways but still definitely feels like a Maiden album. Bruce Dickinson's vocals, the keyboards, and the interesting songwriting is a treat for anyone who loves this sort of proggy stuff. Now, I know I posted 3 progressive metal albums in a row, and I just want one more before I move onto other things, so bare with me... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5TnV09-n9A Voivod's "Nothingface". Extremely experimental for something from 1989, it's "proggish" but not in the vein of these other albums which are prog in their use of "grandiose" instrumentation and unusual songwriting, and while this album has the latter, it's in a class of its own. Perhaps the first "avant-garde metal" release ever; it's very dissonant, but also weirdly melodic. Sadly the guitarist, who went by "Piggy" passed in 2005. Alright, now let's move on to death metal because I'm not a big thrash guy (I like thrash but I'm more of a death metal guy) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jldI2ZzYgFQ Scream Bloody Gore by Death. I don't wanna get into the argument of "who did it first" in terms of death metal, but just know that this album is a classic for a reason. However, I think one of the more prototypical brutal death metal albums is this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYjNHGUB5MU

How many of these have you watched? How many do you like?

>>35 >Breathless Eh, I preferred Le Chinoise >8 1/2 Wasn't as into it as everyone I've heard of the movie from seems to be, but that's probably just a taste thing. >Seven Samurai Love this one, not really arthouse though. >Cleo from 5 to 7 Keep trying to torrent this one but there's never any peers >Daisies Love this one. It was probably my first "arthouse" film >Le Samouraï Actually about halfway through this one, gonna finish it tonight. Loving it so far, but it may be because I'm partial to Alain Delon >Un Chien Andalou Love this one as well

>>35 M, Seven Samurai, The 400 Blows, Bicycle Thieves, La Haine, Three Colors, that's it not much ig
>>35 Nothing tbh
>>35 I have only watched Stalker yet, and I liked it. Its cinematography is great and I like its setting. But it isn't edited well and way too long. Could have liked it even more if I had not expected sci-fi but rather a philosophical film
>>333 Solaris is the more accessiblebTarkovsky film. Somewhat less philosophising more sci-fi, same kinography. You should definitley check it out if you liked Stalker.

>>310 offcourse, because more g2 puts more stress on the tube. basic logic
>>310 >>281 On the contrary, I tested it on my Nokia monitor, and it seems to be brighter with high G2 and brightness to 0%. However, this was all done by eye, so take it with a grain of salt.
What's a good balance for brightness, g2 and contrast for having a good picture and increasing the longevity of my monitor? And is there anything I can do to get the best calibration possible?
>>317 dont touch g2, brightness belongs where blacks are pure black and contrast not above 80% if possible. Anything else is not according to protocol and may decrease the lifespan of you terminal monitor or telivision reciever

Do you like symbiote from MARVEL comics?
>>121 The original 90s comic(s) was all over the place. Venom always shined the most in animation and games. Wait can we discuss non-Japanese stuff here?

70s-80s JPOP anon 02/05/2022 (Sat) 08:26:48 No. 50 [Reply]
Let's talk about our favorite artists, albums and songs from these years. So, what's your favorite Japanese singer over 50?

Take that back! City pop is real and fun and your dumb!
(78.73 KB 600x600 R-11536329-1518145757-8235.jpg)
Akina Nakamori is probably my favourite Japanese artist from the 80s. She was an idol singer whose career became increasingly more experimental, culminating in an album where she was barely visible on the cover and all the vocals were mixed to the back. On the whole, City Pop is really cool. I do think we end up hearing about many of the same songs due to internet algorithm shenanigans, but there are a lot of hidden gems to discover. Especially the funkier stuff.
>>55 100% agree with this. Its just 80s jpop. I fucking hate the word prior to the youtube garbage it was just called 80s jpop
i love hanatarash
>>55 >>208 You guys are stupid. Citypop is more akin to jazz, funk and rock than it is to pop music.
