You all know my life revolves around music. If not, you don't know me enough! Though look at my blog and you'll see that I do like my music quite a bit.

So what have I been doing lately in terms of music? Well thanks to my friend, we've really been getting into Technical Death Metal. What an excellent genre it is too, well depending on the band anyway. Currently we've discovered Necrophagist, Psycroptic and Brain Drill. My personal favourite is Necrophagist, we're both learning the song Stabwound and we're taking one of the two guitars each so we can play at the same time and whatnot. Of course he takes professional lessons and puts more effort in, so I let him do the trickier stuff. Funny actually, he ran out and bought a tabs book by them he's into them that much.

Lately though, I've really gotten into Sylosis... and not just because they're British, although it sure does help. They get into influences from quite a few genres, but you'd call them Epic Thrash Metal. Their sound is brilliant and I like the entire album of Conclusion of an Age. Funny band too when you look at them. The singer looks like your average English pub guy, the bassist has mad dreads and a guitarist has really young looks and is a bit hobo-ish.

I have been enjoying them so much, I even had to go to the Music Forum and make a thread which you can find here. Hopefully I can get more people into Sylosis, since they're pretty new on the block and are only just starting to make their way in the music industry... not helped by the fact it's impossible to find their CD in Australia...

So what of the old friends part you ask? Neoseeker has been odd lately for friends. Really old ones appearing again and others changing or disappearing. I really miss a few, wish they'd make some time to actually chat but I guess beggars can't be choosers.

Speaking of friends, Valentines Day sure was interesting. I had three cupid messages from that Neoseeker account. I've been interrogating people, but so far no luck in terms of finding out who are the culprits. All I can say is if you're the one who offered sex, you'd better be good at it.

That's it for now really, yeah. ^^
