Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne! Resident Invisible Man Lurker in the House of Trolls A Testament to My Glory
I'll be listening to AOL Radio's Classic Metal station tomorrow at work. Metallica (only up through Justice), Testament, Iron Maiden, Anthrax, Slayer, Pantera, Queensryche... Even some some old Guns, AC/DC, Ozzy, and Sabbath. Also a little bit of crap. Surprisingly little (like 3-4 songs in ~5 hours), but it's there.

This means that there are portions of this build dedicated to damage which can safely be removed and thrown elsewhere. For example, you probably don't need both Leap Attack AND Headlong Rush at the same time. You could pick up Extra Rage feats for stamina, feats to support AoO effects, feats that work towards potential prestige classes, and so on. However, you could also shift our ability scores around somewhat. I mean, if you're getting results like that with 16 starting Strength, maybe you can lower it to 14, and free up four points to spend somewhere else - perhaps back into Charisma, giving you some oomph for Intimidating Rage or Imperious Command if you want. You can continue to tune this until it deals "enough" damage - and that "enough" does not need to be "100%". It could easily be, say, 80% (leaving the rest to the team), if your DM is the sort who would ban one-hit killers.

So when do you think Bachmann will be saying she met a mother the previous night that had a son who got a blood transfusion using a gay guy's blood, and now the son is retardedly gay?
When she meets CJ's mom?

  Also like Disturb's cover.

Shout always bugs me. I frequently get it stuck in my head for days.

Also, I was unaware Disturbed did a cover. What album? I rather like Disturbed, so I'm curious.



The Sickness, their first real album. Track 10 IIRC been a long time since I listenened to that.


We're no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
A full commitment's what I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling
Gotta make you understand

Sad dood clowny face pointed out where it can be found - which is great cuz I had no friggin' clue.  The only Disturbed album I own is 10k fists.  Thing is, I like a lot of their stuff.  Really great stuff to work out to.  They also did a pretty sweet Land of Confusion cover (which is on 10k Fists).  And if you like covers you gotta check out Korn's (yes, Korn) Word Up and Mushroomhead's Crazy.

Yeah, not a fan of Korn at all myself but I do dig that cover.  It's sufficiently amusing.

Wrong. The greatest cover in history is Johnny Cash's Empire of Dirt.

Umm ... wasn't it actually a cover of Hurt?  Like, I know he says empire of dirt in it but covers typically use the name of the song they cover - in this case, Hurt.  But yeah, it's pretty awesome.

Derp. Yes; yes it was.
Cash was so good that Teznor said (and it's a direct quote!) "That's not my song anymore."

Trent's version is great ... Cash's is simply perfect.  It's amazing how much better it is.

@ZB: Yup. You can tell that Reznor has experience with the subject matter. Cash, on the other hand, lived it longer than Trent's been alive.

I really dislike Disturbed's cover of Shout. Doesn't feel right at all. Land of Confusion is great, but I already heard it.

Kingdon for a Heart - Sonata Arctica

Why yes, I do have aplaylist devoted to this band, what made you ask? Also, Tony Kakko is a sexy beast.



Yeah, Shout is ok and LoC is pretty good.  Disturbed is just good overall.  Did you check out that Mushroomhead cover of Crazy?  It's awesome.

@ZB: Yup. You can tell that Reznor has experience with the subject matter. Cash, on the other hand, lived it longer than Trent's been alive.



Yupyup.  They didn't call him The Man in Black for nothin'.  ;)  Though Reznor's no slouch - to be fair.  Before the last NIN revival he had much less than a mil in the bank.  Drugs and other wasteful stuff.  To go through that kinda cash you've gotta have some problems, heh.  Still, as good as Trent is, Cash was on another level.

AOL Radio's West Coast Rap station. Lots of NWA, Snoop, Tupac, and Too Short.
