No some people dig good brew and fine wine, they ain't alcoholics, they're "aficionados"

As an alcoholic drink, wine can affect the consumer's judgment. As such, at formal tastings, where dozens of wines may be assessed, wine tasters generally spit the wine out after they have assessed its quality.

"Laying low in a blood filled trench" vs. "Getting blown by a blood sucking wench", its all good
I guess it's just the way the song are arranged. Even though Maiden has written numerous songs about war, all of the songs sound original and have a genuine individuality to them. I don't feel that at all, not only about Cannibal Corpse but with the Death Metal genre as a whole. Much like a lot of the modern day metal bands there's way too many bands sounding the same and not enough of them creating their own idenity to seperate themselves from the pack at all.

The main reason a song like Paschendale gets that kind of emotion out of me is because my grandfather is a WW II veteran. Yes, I know the song is about a battle in WW I but he faced the simular hardships when he served as well. When I hear songs about war like that I think about the stories he's told me about his service and the sacrifices he made and how lucky he was to have survived and made it home and to still be alive today. That's why I don't think it's a big deal to admit a song like that gets me a little choked up.

I guess I thought I would get more tolerant of people as I got older, but that has certainly not been the case.

i can attest to that lol.

i like to seek out grief or just general and even mild misfortune on those whom i have to be around and can't stand. i mean i hate them anyway, so i might as well make the best of it

After listening to the "Alien" album by Strapping Young Lad, I can tell you that Devin Townsend is a production genius!

I've heard a rumor (someone here can confirm or dispell this) but I heard Devin hates his SYL work and is on a sabbatical from music because he did all that music while he was drugs/drunk....he is supposedly pissed about that, and now he is trying to write music sober.
