Has anybody heard the group Tusk? I have a cd called Tales From A Haunted Book, and aside from low budget production, these fuckers rock, you should check'em out, those of you who get into Metal like Gravestone, Breaker, etc... im really interested to know what these guys would sound like with a high budget production job. I bet it would be something else!

Don't know! saw them in the same catalouge I saw that band Chime, actually I found out about 90% of the cd's I have thru a Metal Disc catalouge, every year they would print a cataloge of the years releases from around the world, this was back before the internet, but I could pretty much just order blindely out of it, and always score, but as far as Tusk go, I think they have 2 cd's out, the other disc is called Requiem for Ecstasy, ive never heard it, I believe they are from Germany, good shit though, they remind me a lot of Gravestone type metal, that dark doomy good metal, it came out in 1998, on Long Island Records, it's not all that rare of a disc, well it is because nobodys heard of them, but I mean the discs are out their, Im thinking about checking out that other disc, Ive heard it's not as good as the one I have though, so im not really sure if I want to, but I more then likely will.

sorry for just trying to be helpful to a guy with venom avatar....


No! Im just fucking around man! being a smart ass! the cd I have Tales From... to me, is in line with that type of metal that I hear when I listen to Gravestone, they don't sound anything alike. at all, so I guess I should clarify what im saying, they vibe of the music is that of a weird, dark, heavy metal sound, because lets face it bro, Tusk doesnt have to many bands you can use to give someone a ballpark example of what or who they sound like, because they don't sound like anybody, so you have to go to the next step and compare the style of music. thats all im saying, I just not say it very good.


And that wasnt a shot at you, it was an inside joke over a big rant I just went off on, on the other board, sorry if you thought I was being a dick to you, I wasnt, SO LAY DOWN YOUR SOUL TO THE GODS ROCK AND ROLL!!!!

    • Good tune! Haven't really heard anything about them doing a new album so guessing maybe that song was a leftover from previous recording sessions?  
    • Given this 3 or 4 spins now and it's a really good album. Pretty sure my comment above was referring to My Favourite Enemy which I now really like. Stand out track for me. First listens can easily be off. But pretty much every so is a keeper for me. Only problem is that if above 5/10 means the song is a keeper, most of the songs are a 6 with a few 7's.  So good songs, but not much that really pops out as killer tracks.
    • Been listening to this later and it's pretty good. If I'd heard it back in the day I would have loved it, but hard to hear it now with the same vibe. Very Babylon AD sounding on some songs.
    • Appreciate the support and enthusiasm for the title. In ALL past releases I've fought hard and at times with the artists and rights holders to release something I as a fan would want to buy - and that includes original artwork, track listings and bonus material etc.. (had some good fights over those).  However, in this case, I fully agree with the guys. Its just not feasible to release and promote something called Sex Crimes in 2023. Politically correct, woke, reality...it just is what it is. The band has felt uneasy over the title for some time now. We will endeavor to make the release as true to the original apart from that title and a fresh take on the artwork. Apologies for the right-wing comments, that's my immediate reaction when I start hearing cancel culture stuff.
    • Yeah, I felt that Auslander was having a go at those who are easily offended, not Andrew.  I think the wombat got the wrong end of the stick.
    • This makes my brain hurt. You literally cannot win in this day and age.    
    • Bringing politics into a post about a band we are all here to celebrate isn't a good look, and that's coming from me, a right winger, because somebody would like a proper real release as in the original artwork and the way we bought it in 86 isn't being a right winger, it's being a good audiophile, I too think it's absurd to finally give this album a proper release after waiting so long for it, then to completely alter it for the sake of what? it's a re-release, that is going to be bought by people who already know what it is, and not some clueless stick figure buying it on a whim, It just kind of feels like a slap in the face, primarily because we all have a semi good idea as to why it's being changed, and that isn't right wing, that's actually left wing these days, so should I not buy it cause its altered? just to make a political point? I mean since you aren't concerned about him being offended? well I guess I could be labeled "others", and I would think you'd be a bit more understanding why someone would be irked over the decision, and it aint because they voted for Trump or Biden, but if me and him don't buy it you'd be losing a sale right? you can say you don't care, but if everybody didn't buy it to make a point, then you'd care, so why play to the people who aren't going to buy it regardless? instead of the people waiting decades for it to be released? that's all he's saying, you don't gotta be an asshole. If you knew him you'd know how horrible calling him a right winger is to him, as I assure you he's not, I feel I gotta say something, I blew it off originally but since the curtain got pulled back I feel the same way he does, but I'm not gonna fight over it, and it is a valid feeling and im sure others possess it, so you can call me all the names you want, talk about my mom, or my ex, you can trash me and my politics, I welcome it, but you really don't gotta bag on somebody for being a little put off over a 1st time release and the only CD release of an album many of us here love, BTW, regardless what you say to me, I'll still buy it, and I still appreciate what your doing even if I disagree with how your doing it, cool bro. now lets here what a fascist i am.
    • Thanks 4 the heads up bro, I truly appreciate it
