Welcome to /br/!

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

I just found this board and I already feel home, so I decided to start a thread about some of my favorite 80s metal. 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: 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". 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... 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) 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: Morbid Angel. The guitarist behind it would fit quite well here I'm sure (being that he's a huge Ranma 1/2, Sailor Moon, DOOM, and Quake fan). However, one of my favorite death metal albums of all time is this: I suppose this also fits under "goregrind". I'd include Terrorizer and Repulsion but I think this band is better than both. It has the punk edge as grindcore bands usually do, but the riffs are much more death metal styled; the tremolo picking and grooviness mixed with that dirty, punk-y grind edge creates an experience like no other. If you want one, just one grindcore album to carry with you, THIS would be my recommendation. British death metal at its absolute finest hour. Yet another death metal album from 1989! Autopsy's one of my favorite death metal bands of all time. Imagine Tony Iommi played in a death metal band and you'd get Autopsy. It's death metal for sure, having the scary atmosphere, atonal riffing style, and vocals associated with it, but there's a bit of Sabbath influence in the riffing with the thick, resounding single note riffs this album contains. So many albums here from 1989, but I had to include Obituary's "Slowly We Rot". Classic death metal album. Obituary's known for their groovy, simple death metal. No technical mumbo jumbo here, just some groovy riffs and brutality, the way death metal ought to be! Post your own!

Favourite retro computer? Mine is the Fujitsu FM Towns, mostly for its pioneering use of CDs and its Japanese computer games being superior to their PC-98 counterparts, although it died off a lot sooner. Just another blip in the Japanese computer scene.

Help how do i precisely draw reflections and refractions of an under/above water wave or surface imagery like picrel The colors and shapes of the reflections and refractions confuse me most especially with realism as concern Especially the cylindrical wave shape, reflection of objects other than the ocean floors.... seems like wild guessing so i wanna know the rightest and position maybe by math or whatever projection solution

Retro Visual Kei

Does wapchan enjoy visual kei? >What is Visual Kei? Visual Kei is a musical movement that originated in Japan in the mid-1980s. Appearing out of Japan's punk and metal scenes, visual kei is an aesthetic, rather than a genre, pulling imagery from gothic rock, punk, shock rock, glam rock, speed metal and hair metal, often wearing elaborate costumes and flamboyant hair. The movement expanded beyond it's hair punk and glam metal roots in the 1990s to cover a vast array of different subgenres and genres, ranging from extremes such as brutal death metal to accessible genres like synthwave.

/hkam/ - Hong Kong Action Movies

A thread/general for discussing the output (both good and bad) of one of the best and most prolific action movie generators ever: 20th century Hong Kong. What's your favorite action film from the golden era of Hong Kong cinema? Mine's gotta be 'Yes Madam!' The action choreography is some of the best of the era, the cast of characters is great, the comedy is actually funny, and for once the plot makes sense! I've never shown it to someone who hasn't enjoyed it. Also Michelle Yeoh is a total babe.
