Progressive is not dead
« on: March 16, 2012, 08:56:51 PM »
Kinda weird how this particular style has crossed over so many different genres over the years while still kinda being considered a genre in and of itself. A few examples of how it crosses genres. Still basically all the in the "rock" category, although the early classic rock pioneers of it tended to delve into lighter textures than most of the bands that carry the torch today are willing to do.

You forgot the main one:  Dream Theater.

They've always been damn good, with world-class musicians that actually know what the fuck they're doing.  Highly intellectual music.  The chord changes they explore borders on atonality, and only the pure true music lovers eat this shit up.  :)  The piano player is a devout lover of classical music.  The motherfucker sounds like Liszt with some of his chops.  The guitar player also excellent.

Their newest one's pretty good:

Really excellent stuff.

Pretty new band coming out of Sweden I believe. A little freakish in appearance, reminds me of King Diamond/Mercyful Fate, but musically sound a lot more like some old Blue Oyster Cult or Black Sabbath or really early Mercyful Fate. So far, they seem to be gaining a pretty nice little following, but I'm not sure they'll ever make it through underground status with their gaudy makeup and costumes they use for live shows. Also, lyrics are VERY occult themed just like Mercyful Fate. All-in-all, they're damn near a Mercyful Fate tribute band without actually playing any Mercyful Fate tunes.

Satcha... sacka... fuck it, copy and paste.

Satchitananda - A Thought Away (1978) (Full Album)

Never heard of this band/group before today. YouTube was finally useful for something. Very keyboard heavy, but certainly a great portrait of everything prog in the 70's was supposed to be.

Thanks, yes, system crashed; unknown reason.

Hopefully everything is restarted now.

Some servers seem down currently Quadz, don't know if it's just a hiccup that'll fix itself, maintenance or what, but just in case, I mention it.

It's always been that if you mymap and disconnect before the map goes live, it's deleted from the queue.

Occasinally, someone will stick around until their map loads, and THEN disconnect, which is not appreciated. (Currently the only recourse is a full mute, as there's no provision for blocking just mymap usage.)

At least these days, the chosen map has to be roughly compatible with the number of players active on the server. (No more mapping sewer64 on a 3-player server; etc.)

Any way to prevent people from trolling with mymap? By that I mean they join the server, mymap a map, then immediately discconnect, forcing whoever's playing to play a map that nobody there necessarily wanted to play in the first place. Maybe have it check to see if the player who issued the command

Seems like that did the trick, quadz. I'm sure everyone is happy to have their lower pings back :) Thanks!

OK, they made a routing change that appears to have resolved the issue I was seeing here.

Everyone else's pings back to normal?
