Tomasz Alen Kopera – “Ascension”
(TheMadIsraeli has some ideas and invites some feedback….)
So I haven’t written much lately, and I’m sure you all have noticed that. The last year was really rough for me personally, and it sapped away a lot of my energy and passion over time. I’ve come back swinging in a huge way all the way from the brink of a bad place last year, and now the current delay in my writing is due to me trying to get my life together and moving in a way I never have before.
With this new commitment to reshaping myself, I also want to recommit myself and redefine my tenure here at NCS and write the absolute best stuff I can for the site, provide the best content I can possibly muster, and I hope get back to my old borderline inhuman output. For now, instead of trying to churn out piece after piece, I am focusing on making what I write count and be super-substantial. I want to recommit myself to my original goal of writing about music that is nothing short of borderline perfect for me, and I have been recapturing my passion for metal quite quickly as of late.
With that said, I decided I’d inform you all of what is coming down the pipe, though I want to hear some feedback concerning these ideas for upcoming pieces. What’s currently in the works right now…
My top ten thrash albums of all time.
A feature on In Dread Response, bringing back my “Bands you should be listening to” shtick that I did a couple of times before, but in even greater force.
A “Higher Criticism” series on the almighty Death. I have a rather ambitious surprise and idea for this one. We’ll see if I can accomplish it.
My top ten melodic death metal albums of all time.
No reviews are planned as of yet. Nothing has caught my attention hardcore. While it’s well past the end of last year, I would also happily write about my list of 2014’s top albums, if no one feels it would be sorely out of place this far into 2015.
So which one of these ideas would be of interest to you? Which one should I make the first priority? Please let me know in the comments.
