Full Metal Jacket

So we have ''Metal'' in it for the upvote :)

That's the one I was trying to think of. Not "Platoon". It's where the recruit shoots Sgt. R. Lee Ermey in the bathroom after the end of training camp?

Did you actually choose that upvote image for the metal theme? :D

No it was inspired by giveuahint's profile Tagline and I realized it would work at the same time for metal week :)

I meant there are no love songs during the 'classic' Iron Maiden period(s). From "Iron Maiden" through "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son", and from "Brave New World through to now. I'm kinda of the mind to lump in the last two albums of Bruce Era 1.0 with the Blaze Bailey era. XD

I was at a truck stop late one night (late 2014 or early 2015) and I came across a show (I think on VH1) that was playing metal music videos. I saw the same show a couple more times shortly after that. I saw Flight of Icarus, Rainbow in the Dark by Dio, and Teenage Frankenstein by Alice Cooper :)

If you like "Icarus" you's probably like a lot of their music from around that time (mid-'80s). That song is off of "Piece of Mind", but the albums "Number of the Beast" and "Powerslave" are even better. If you want to hear the favorite song of 75% of Maidenheads you should find a download of "The Trooper". Same album as"Icarus"; I saw the band a couple years ago and between songs the lights were down but it was bright enough that you could see the backdrop being lowered that they use for live performances of "The Trooper" and everyone went batshit crazy. :)

I'll definitely check out those albums! Thanks, buddy!

They don't do it anymore for some reason, but iTunes used to have a thing where when you clicked on an album, there was a little bar next to each track listing. The more popular the song, the higher the bar went. When I bought Icarus, I noticed that The Trooper was the most popular song on the album. I listened to the little sample iTunes has, but I didn't find it too impressive. I'll give it another look, though :)

"The Trooper" is a song about the Charge of the Light Brigade during the Crimean War in the mid-1800s. And thus my history major is now justified. XD

Is it really? :O what a strange subject for a heavy metal song!

Iron Maiden has songs about the Battle of Britain, Knights Templars siege of a heretic village in medieval times, the construction of the atomic bomb in World War II, Native American genocide, Pharonic power in ancient Egypt, Celtic myths, and epic poems. One thing they don't do are love songs. ;P

Soon-to-be-debut album? So when he killed Euronymous, Mayhem hadn't released any albums yet?
2 ups
Mayhem had released an EP, which didn't sound a whole lot like the output they would release later. The EP had a vocalist who went by the name Maniac, who when he left right after was replaced by the unfortunate Dead, who killed himself before they could record the debut album. They went and got Attila Csihar from a Hungarian black metal band to do vocals for the debut, and because they tended to have a revolving door of band members (no band member is on every album release), they hired 'close friend' Varg Vikernes, who had his own act as Burzum, to do bass playing under the name Count Grishnakh (which, along with 'Burzum', are names derived from JRR Tolkein). After the recording sessions and before release of the album Varg killed Euronymous, and as a result, dependent on what source you listen to, they buried Varg's bass in the mix or deleted it all together. When they returned as a functioning band they had a new guitarist and Maniac was back on vocals, as he was for further albums up until about 15 years ago when they brought back Attila, which is good as Attila is a h3ll of a lot better vocalist than Maniac. Anyway their last album from three or four years ago, "Esoteric Warfare", is actually very good, though it isn't really black metal anymore. The only members remaining from "Die Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" are Attila and the drummer 'H3llhammer'.

https://rateyourmusic.com/artist/mayhem - if interested I'd say find a download of "Die Mysteriis Dom Sathanas".

I noticed you changed the spelling of "hell". Any particular reason? :) I'm just curious

I found Die Mysteriis Dom Sathanas on iTunes. The music is good, but the vocals are too slow for my tastes :) When I listen to metal, I like faster vocals, like Equilibrium :D
2 ups
I never know what the flip is going to censor. Sometimes it's 'h*ll', sometimes it's 'hell'.

Don't know Equilibrium. :D I love Attila's vocals. You think those are slow? Listen to him singing for SUNN0))). There's a song called "Decay 2 (Nihil's Maw)" on the SUNN0))) album "White 2" that is 25 minutes of a slow off-bass burn and a voice slowly bleeding into coherence while chanting verses from the Rig Veda. One of the most intese songs I've ever heard...

I have a Black Metal recommendation for you,Octavia! "The Somberlain" by Dissection! A kickass album from start to finish!
reply

If you have iTunes, you should definitely check out Equilibrium! They're a German metal band (folk metal, I think). I have one of their albums, Sagas. My favorite song on the album is Heimwärts. I listen to it whenever I get really upset, and it helps me to calm down :) I also love the songs Dämmerung, Mana (which is just instrumental), and Ruf In Den Wind :)

I checked out a few clips of SUNN0))) on iTunes just now. Would you say they fall under the Doom Metal category? They sound very slow and dragging.

"...a voice slowly bleeding into coherence..." That's a very interesting way to put it :)
2 ups
I don't have iTunes but I'll ask my metalhead friend - ironically the friend I'm doing the noise project with - about Equilibrium. He'll have at least heard of them, and if he doesn't have any I can download he can probably tell me where to find some.

SUNN0))) is doomy, yes. But other than the obvious heavyness they don't fit neatly into the metal category. I was actually listening to "Decay 2 (Nihil's Maw)" on the way into work this morning. I would say my 'bleeding into coherence' comment was accurate. :)

I was watching a YouTube video the other day about disturbing Wikipedia pages, and it talked about Dead (from Mayhem), and how the picture of his dead body after his suicide was used for their next album cover. I already knew that Varg had killed a musician, but I didn't know that Euronymous was the musician he killed! :o then again, I didn't really know much at all about Mayhem to begin with :)
2 ups
You know more than 99% of the rest of the population, even the metalhead population. :) I think the suicide picture was used on a bootleg album, but I do have a DVD of live Mayhem that uses it. Varg Vikernes (i.e., Burzum) was playing the bass under another assumed name for Mayhem's soon-to-be-debut album, but became convinced that Euronymous, the guitarist, meant him harm (which may have been true, according to some sources) so he stabbed him some 50+ times. The apocryphal tale is that vinyl records of "Die Mysteriis Dom Sathanas" that were stained with Euronymous' blood from being stored in the same room as the attack were going for high price on the 'net. During his trial Varg, in his infinite wisdom, felt it might help his cause to dress and act like a neo-nazi. :P He spent 14 years in a Norwegian prison for murder, but towards the end it was pretty flexible, considering that went he got out he had a toddler daughter. He now continues to record under the Burzum name.

Seems fair, especially if Steve sorta admits to it. And it's pocket change for Maiden. ;) For all the classic tunes the band has, "Hallowed Be Thy Name" is the song they're noted for playing in all their concerts without fail. This meme just popped up in my head on a commute to work, knowing it was Metal Mania Week and having used some of those images before. They're actually taken from when the band was performing the song.
