Cool, that record by AAFCC "Lost" is really good imo, they have since deviated from that formula quite a bit and become really synth heavy, just a
completely different animal. Bummed me out just a little because I thought they had it nailed already. And when I say its become ironic, I mean
certain types of people that have no genuine appreciation of metal in general other than as an 'edgy' fashion statement. But you said it best,
Hm I think I made the banshee connection from a book I read, I want to say American Gods but I may be misremembering. When I was a younger kid I had a
bit of an obsession with Scotland, in no small part due to Shirley Manson lol. Did several school reports on Scotland and everything. My username came
from a book, I think its a variation on spelling of a Sumerian goddess, Ashera. At least according to Neal Stephenson. Didn't put much thought into it
But your interpretation is pretty rad lol! I'll have to remember that

Haha I wanted to grow up to be Shirley when I was a kid. And Scotland produced these guys, who are awesome but they're both whats been coined as
brutal death metal so its a little rough if that's not your cup of tea!
Snow Crash is bad ass. To this day Hiro Protagonist remains one of the coolest... well hero protagonists ever. Diamond Age was cool but I only read it
once. I liked Cryptonomicon well enough, it was a lot slower than his other books (though no where near as boring as his lengthy Baroque Cycle of
books). Anethema was amazing though. One of the best sci-fi novels I have read but that's just me. Neal Stephenson is a boss.
I like you Peter! You have good taste in music. Weren't you the one that posted Acid Bath? One of my favorite lyrics: Dying felt so goddamn good
today! And I love Sammy Duet.
Why thank you very kindly, I appreciate the faith in my musical choices! Yes, I posted the Acid Bath. By far one of my favorite bands period let alone
metal bands. Nothing beat seeing them in a tiny club....wow I'm feeling old because that show was in 94 hahaha A few of the bands I posted were
bands I had played in in the past and perhaps currently. I just didn't fuss over the fact because I wasn't sure what the policy was for shameless
self promotion. Others were local/friends bands and a bunch of other stuff was from every direction of the compass.
