 3rd test - on a 1950s Bush valve radio on long wave. Used to sound fine but compared to modern gear it's shocking. Probably better through the screen speakers on t'internet. I'll give it a try.

Re: What are you listening to?

It finally arrived. So it's been on repeat for the last day.

Opeth - Watershed.

Really enjoying it, even if it sounds more like their older stuff. I hear more 'My Arms, Your Hearse' in it than anything else......No bad thing.....

I got that too - on a previous recommendation from your good self. Bit of a cheese factor but I love the drumming.

TBH, 'Watershed' is a bit of a step backwards. Not that I don't enjoy it, because I do, but 'Blackwater Park' is their finest album. 'Deliverance' & 'Damnation'. are also both very good. All 3 were produced by the guy from Porcupine Tree (Steven Wilson?) and the production is great.

The new drummer isn't as good as the last guy, but he went a bit nuts and they had to oust him. :-(

Who is your favourite drummer BTW? Ever since I bought 'Individual Thought Patterns' by 'Death' I have been an ardent fan of Gene Hoglan. There's no way a guy that size should be able to play how he does, but it's his diversity which is astounding. Incredible double kicking in 'Strapping Young Lad', Prog with power in 'Death;, laid back solid grooves with Devin Townsend's solo stuff ('Terria' is amazing, you simply must buy it).

Favourite drummer? Hmmmmm............not an easy question to answer

It's unlikely to be a metal drummer because, although I am enjoying Opeth, Mastodon and Neurosis, it's not the genre I listen to the most.

John Stanier is fantastic - ex Helmet, currently in Battles - such power and precision on a small kit.

Jojo Mayer - drum n bass genius. Bill Bruford - that snare technique is mind blowing. Greg Saunier from Deerhoof.

So many good drummers about.
