To state it clearly and precisely: we do not make percussion instruments, handpans or hang drums. Playing the drums is a different language. The imitators of the hang allow playing with sticks or gloves. We make the hang for the hands, beyond any playing techniques.

An excerpt from this here blog post https://www.hangblog.org/newsletter-panart-may-19th-2010/

Right. Well, turns out there are about a billion different handpans from other companies, and they are expensive as all hell. :awesome: I'm just a fan of tuned percussion.

At least I, as an old heavy fan, know them very well (Alestorm 😆) and many more. In this genre I have preferences especially in Melodic black / death Metal and Prog Metal
I like groups like Tool, Genesis of the 70s with Peter Gabriel, in the current Vintersea, Gojira, Rotting Christ, Behemoth, Moonsorrow and some more

"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

This band is like Jim Morrison, The Doors, Velvet Underground, Jefferson Airplane and Hendrix. Really underrated:

Not sure where I first heard of them, but there's a British group called Hybrid that does a lot of electronic music that I like. Some stuff of theres I can listen to endlessly...

A word of warning, Agent Denton. This was a simulated experience; real LAMs will not be so forgiving.

Absolutely cool, I fully agree with you, but I would add Led Zeppelin to your list! :)

Thank you for sharing, I will try to get all their CDs! I am asshamed that I missed this band till now. I even knew a song from them that has been used in the first season of True Detective, but I did not investigate the band name. Clicking on the first track you have posted, I immediately recognized the voice and then was able to verify my assumption:

Wish I could get a lossless version of this song. I always loved it. Specially how it starts soft and gets more aggressive later.

 

 

The Playstation 1 version of this game had the better quality version of the music by far. The PC version's soundtrack was compressed and muddy, probably 22KHz in ADPCM, which was always a shitty sounding codec, but also used all over the place in the 1990s.

Wow, I'm impressed seeing so many fellow metal heads on the forums! Moonsorrow was mentioned by several members, definitely in my top 10 bands. Though I would probably classify them as black metal (with folk and progressive influences). Shout out to Devin Townsend too, I mostly know him from listening to Strapping Young Lad, but an excellent musician in general.

In general I'm an equal fan of death metal and black metal, and mainly Nordic bands, but there is good stuff from all over the world. I'm particularly a fan of the early Swedish death metal scene with bands like Entombed, Dismember, Grave, Grotesque etc, and the later Gothenburg scene of Melodic Death Metal like Dark Tranquillity, In Flames and others (both of which I've hung out with at concerts, Gothenburg is a small town ^^)

For Black Metal it's mainly Norwegian and some Swedish and Finnish bands like Darkthrone, Immortal, Gorgoroth, Lord Belial, Bathory, Dissection, Moonsorrow, Impaled Nazarene and many more.

 

But when it comes to mapping in DR I tend to go for something that's a bit more chill and puts me in the zone. I usually listen to some kind of Dungeon Synth or similar, for example:

Sounds like those old Adlib sountracks - Dune 2, Daggerfall etc.

 

Btw, random, out of the blue hardcore song that my head hurts from listening too much bc I just can't handle dat bass:

      I love playing The Dark Mod when it's cold in my place. Bonus points when it's a bit (or even very) dark and it's raining, too.

      I've been having stutters in Vulkan, apparently it's Nvidia Drivers' fault, so I reverted to 512 according to this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/505679/regular-microstutter-in-vulkan-applications-after-/?topicPage=40

      And no, that did NOT fix it. What's going on? My GPU is an RTX 2070, by the way.

      I just figured out how to make subtitles work in TDM (srt) for ingame cutscenes and how to automatically generate the srt file in Kdenlive's speech recognition (I just had to edit it a bit).
      Kdenlive is a free and open source multiplatform pretty advanced video editor.
      Test case is the first builder gost scene in Requiem saying:
      1 00:00:00,180 --> 00:00:02,140 the builder be with you this night 2 00:00:02,600 --> 00:00:04,840 there will be secrets all around you 3 00:00:05,040 --> 00:00:06,439 so have a keen eye The following page gives you the basic info:
      https://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Subtitles
      These 2 tutorials give you the info for creating the srt files:
      If you run into the problem the Kdenlive cannot find your Python PATH, then here is a solution:
      https://www.mail-archive.com/kde-bugs-dist@kde.org/msg672183.html
      Edit: During the installation of Python, in the installer, if you select more options, you can specify to set the PATH. I tried this on another Windows computer and this fixed the issue. Much easier solution.
       
      This is all the code for the testcase:
       
      Maybe I will create a seperate (text,images based) tutorial on the wiki.
