Could have sworn...

...that I'd scribbled something in this space earlier today. Glad I checked before midnight rather than after losing another streak.
Nothing much going through my head tonight. Listening to music generated by requesting that Alexa play the Cradle of Filth album Midian, being denied by that disc not being available among the amazon music free offerings, and then it launching a station based on the "if you like that you might like" algorithm. Granted, I have liked most of the stuff played over the past hour and a half, but I'm not sure I would have drawn the connection between the CoF theatrical symphonic black metal to the melodeath/Viking metal of Amon Amarth or the death metal stylings of Death.
On the other hand, I have learned of a couple of bands that really do fit in Cradle's genre, like Carech Angren.
And then there's the mystery of why Alexa hasn't played any Demon Burger...I mean Dimmu Borgir, because that's the first band that comes to my mind when I've think of bands like Cradle of Filth. Come to think of it, I don't think I've heard any Children of Bodom, either. Think I have to remedy that...a little Hate Crew Death Roll before I go to sleep sounds like a plan!
