They're pretty delicious.




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-d3AOne 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_JqGPteKkOperation: 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=KMuGG0ajtCsTheir 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-n9AVoivod'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)htPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>215>blind guardianROFL


this russian deicide/MA worship album is pretty good. Sounds so reminiscent of the 1990 s/t I can't unhear it lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAohe88PK7Enot 80's shit but whatever


>>204looking back I feel these criticisms can be applied to shit like serpent of the light and later records what with the proportionately generic death-metal songwriting with the same riff sequences repeating along with the minor triad and III/V/down-step tremolos being pretty obvious but inquisition is basically an immortal clone band that's centered around the sw-ethos of muh thrashy harsh minimal and cold atmosphere. Legion-era deicide is the best shit. The half-step interval transitions and shit like that have more soul in stuff like the 90's s/t too.


There's not a single song this man can't improve with a cover.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UcrC_1ZGT0

>>221>>224You guys are stupid.Citypop is more akin to jazz, funk and rock than it is to pop music.


>>226I would still say it's predominately pop-oriented but the urban influences give out those interesting harmonies


Maybe it’s because I just recently rewatched the Sasori movies but I can’t stop listening to Meiko Kajis Musichttps://youtu.be/THaY9fVsjoMOther favorites might be Keiko Fujihttps://youtu.be/K8nqAc3qglMOr Hako Yamasakihttps://youtu.be/KLfmOHMVs48

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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18H2Uc9_7I0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNTv-tDtYvUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvY7zc0a-7Yhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81-czr9Zano

Does CASCADE count? Listening to Butterfly Limited Express for the first time was an experience. It felt nice in the moment, even if everything else felt like absolute shit. although now, I can't really listen to it with the same nostalgic sense, only to pass time and act like things are fine...


>>231I love visual kei! I saw Dir en Grey live twice over a decade ago and still get excited for all their new records despite them not really being what I would call visual kei anymore.


>>231Since this thread is on a slow board I don't feel too bad about posting in it.I am a fan of visual kei. I've been into it since about 2011.Here is a favorite track of mine:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27WFd8PoDBw


I enjoy Buck-Tick. I never knew there was a whole subset of J-rock that was like this.


let's post 90's black metal classics, starting off with this EP right here.


Probably the peak of Canadian Black Metal for me.


>>244I'd take them over blasphemy, but in my opinion, both bands mog revenge.


Any of you ever read foreign works heavily inspired by manga? I feel like with how seperated Japanese manga and western comics are these days, series that bridged the gap dont get much appreciation these days. Can you believe Ninja High School has been published continuously since 1987?


>>2It's hard to believe Ninja High School is still fucking going, that's for sure. I used to read it as a kid and even though I liked it then, it never felt quite as good as actual manga. Now it feels like some sort of weird fossil fish that's still hanging around for some reason


>>2I still cannot believe that no one has made a parody comparing Ninja High School to Urusei Yatsura. I mean, COME ON


>>4NHS always wore its influences on its sleeve. I think the skunk-girl had a Captain Harlock outfit too?


I'm trying to find an old flash animation that used the song "言葉にできない"A japanese meme or something back at the time.It was a compilation of "fail" scenarios that constantly plays in Japanese everyday life... like dropping an entire bowl of instant soba inside the sink while trying to take the hot water out. I think there were several engrish signs examples, "you had one job" memes, and I think I remember this sleeping panda too. https://youtu.be/otYwfvmRt7M


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

>>6>BreathlessEh, I preferred Le Chinoise>8 1/2Wasn'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 SamuraiLove this one, not really arthouse though.>Cleo from 5 to 7Keep trying to torrent this one but there's never any peers>DaisiesLove this one. It was probably my first "arthouse" film>Le SamouraïActually 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 AndalouLove this one as wellHaven't seen Chunking Express, but I liked In the Mood for Love.


>>6M, Seven Samurai, The 400 Blows, Bicycle Thieves, La Haine, Three Colors, that's itnot much ig


>>6Nothing tbh


>>6I 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


>>18Solaris is the more accessiblebTarkovsky film. Somewhat less philosophising more sci-fi, same kinography. You should definitley check it out if you liked Stalker.


Do you like symbiote from MARVEL comics?


>>20The 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?


>>21Of course. There's quite a lot I like from the west.


>>22Mark Bagley's art style is great
