I have a request

Ok, not one to usually do this, but if anyone can find a FULL recording of this (likely a live one), I will be eternally grateful. It's known as "The Monster", and it's a 30+ minute long track by Nux Vomica. This little excerpt is flat out amazing, and I'd love to hear the full thing.

Worth listening to even if you don't have the full version.

RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE / The Warren of Snares

Anyone still out there? No? Cool.

This here is the Warren Of Snares trilogy by Fall of Efrafa. They call themselves post hardcore, but they sound like neocrust to me (sorry guys, know you dislike the tag but that's what you sound like). Anyways, music. Three albums of epic sweeping emotional melodic heaviness, all to the tune of Richard Adam's Watership Down. This is really some of the best music I have, long songs that never overstay their welcome, complex melodies that latch their hooks into you, a pulsing underlying anger always threatening to overtake everything, all wrapped up in one of the most complete concepts ever realised in music. Listen to it in order, all at once.

Links removed at request of band. You should be able to find them for purchase pretty easily though.

I know Owsla is missing track seven, that's on purpose as it's a bonus track that isn't actually a part of the trilogy. I may upload it later along with stuff like their split, demo, and Tharn.

Also, just because of the quote I used in the title, have some Altered Beast Demo. Short fast and fun thrashcore. Fuck yea, good to be back in business.
