Morrisound Studios, How I Miss Thee
As a teenager I remember making fun of balding suburban douchebags who still wore tie-dye and had a hard time shaking their past. They were holding on to a time and place that had passed long ago.
Today, I sit here watching this video about Morrisound studios and I all of a sudden understand how suburban douchebags end up attached to another time and place. To the dismay of younger metal fans, I think death metal peaked in Morrisound Studios. Okay, laugh at me...I don't care. Those were simple days. Earache and Roadrunner were kings, the Milwakee Metal fest was THE place to be, blast beats were mostly irregular and sounded like a sack of potatoes falling down the steps...but things were good. It was a prosperous time.
Yes, some modern-day technical death metal impresses me....but nothing will compare to those early death metal records made at the mecca known as Morrisound. Yes, Morrisound is still around, but it's not the same. Damnit, where's my time machine when I need it?
