    I've been on a Black Sabbath streak, especially Master of Reality. Lord of This World might be the heaviest song of the 1970s. (And if it isn't, then it's probably Symptom of the Universe.)

      Fantastic album. As a teenager growing up as a fledgling Metalhead I always rated Sabbath as the best. As I have got older (my taste has become more brutal and faster) I have become very much a Led Zep fanboi. I always liked them but in my mind they are the superior band from the supposed three that influenced Metal (Purp, Zep, Sab).

        As a kid (under 7) I listened to a lot to Pink Floyd - even though I didn't understand anything besides the instrumental part of the music - because my dad was listening to them. This was somewhat rare in communist Romania. Then, little by little, I was introduced to Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix and so on. Around 10yo, being home alone, I took one of my father's reels (we had a soviet Mayak 203) and listened to it. I was blown away by the style. I think I listened to it for 3-4 hours until my father came home and asked him who they were and he told me "Black Sabbath". Since then I consider them one of my favorites. Growing up and becoming a metalhead I realized I wasn't the only one who appreciated them and understood how influential they were... /story

    Quar and Peace by Blockhead. It’s an instrumental album of beats he made during IG Live sessions at the beginning of quarantine and recently got a released on music platforms. I didn’t see/hear those live sessions in April so it’s all new to me. I’ve been listening to a lot of instrumental albums for the past few months and this one fits nice into the rotation. Pretty cool beats.

    Normally I listen to a lot of hardcore, but I've been spending time with family that doesn't really care for it. So digging in more to some new releases outside that genre that came out recently. Most recent Purity Ring and Fiona Apple are pretty good, though personally I think both of them had pretty previous releases. Didn't really care much for the new Black Keys, though it's not without its charm.

    Surprisingly enjoying the new album from Bush. I guess I am starting my mid-life crisis or something.

    Big Black Delta's new album, 4. Rock influences on the record give me warm and fuzzy Mellowdrone nostalgia, and the songs are just so.. fun. Only gripe I have with the album is that the mixing is very rough at spots. But as far as I can tell, Jonathan did the mixing and everything on his own. Anyway, a great record.
