Not soothing, this one. Just absurdly good black metal. Everything just fits.

Got to put this one up again for the last 3 minutes alone. That is some seriously soothing stuff right there.

Anathema - pulled under at 2000 metres a second

One of the highlights of “A Natural Disaster”, Anathema’s 2004 offering that was… very mixed in quality. Nothing compared to what they have shown them capable of before and after this.

I remember back at the box I went to I struggled forever to pull these off.

So excited!! Made a gif of my 175# squat (at just under 130# bodyweight)! Goal is 200# by sometime this summer :)

Mad respect. Don’t think my knees will ever be able to survive that, though!

Gym selfie just after I was done. 
Leg day. So painful. Best feeling there is.

Let’s just make clear what a rare gem Steven Gerrard is to football these days. Played for Liverpool all his life.

Nights like these always serve as a great reminder that even though I listen to loads of different genres, nothing can even begin to approach the effect black metal has on me. Atmospheric black like Negura Bunget or Alcest (before they departed from metal), or classics like early Ulver, Enslaved and Burzum with their hypnotic repetitiveness - it all just does something for me that no other genre of music can. 

The best of the best black metal I know of can really grab me by the throat like no other music can. And above all, of course, stands Alcest. To me, anyway.
