About: Ghost Brigade is a five-piece metal band from Jyv?skyl?, Finland, formed in 2005. They have taken elements from doom metal, depressive rock, post-metal, melodic death metal and progressive metal into their music. Wille Naukkarinen (guitars): "In Ghost Brigade, selling albums is not what it?s about. It?s about the feeling I get when I write a new song, which I only get when I know the song is good enough. The metaphor for that is "the fire". That explains the title of the album.
Roots Festival Presents Maz O'Connor + Adam Holmes
Maz O'Connor is a gifted singer with a rare talent for fusing traditional and contemporary folk sounds. Maz O'Connor, Adam Holmes
One of British Folk's rising stars, Maz O'Connor is a gifted singer with a rare talent for fusing traditional and contemporary folk sounds. Performing a mixture of traditional folk songs and her own compositions, Maz accompanies her uniquely pure voice with guitar, piano, shruti box and harmonium.
In 2013, a year after leaving university, she was nominated for the BBC Folk Awards Horizon Award and selected for a creative fellowship with the English Folk Dance and Song Society at London?s Cecil Sharp House, funded by the BBC Performing Arts Fund.
One of the brightest rising stars on the Scottish music scene, 23 year old singer/songwriter Adam Holmes crafts lyrics that resonate like old folk songs, set to melodies rooted in haunting slow airs. John Martyn's strum and sting, laced with a slice of Paolo Nutini soul and a touch of traditional folk.
Mixing trad, folk and Americana, Adam has been steadily building a reputation as an aspiring young musician - finalist in BBC2 Horizon Awards and nominated for Up and Coming Artist of the Year at the 2013 Scottish Trad Music Awards.
Diaspora ForumAround six months ago I offered to host a Diaspora Forum.The idea was to provide a better support platform for podmins (especially new ones) and potentially to provide support for new users too.I work in I.T. and have access to a large (Microsoft server) infrastructure. The problem at the time was, while I might have the equivalent of a Ph.D in enterprise level Microsoft Servers and Databases, my knowledge of Linux was non-existent.Anyway, I offered to host a forum using some opensource .NET forum software on a Windows Server with Microsoft SQL database. This was naturally not too well received by the community. Much discussion was had both on D* and on Loomio.Quite a few people at the time suggested #Discourse but I had no knowledge of Linux and its inner workings, I had never used apache or nginx, nor did I have a single linux based server.I decided to do something about it and six months later I now know a lot about Linux, I rent three linux servers in a data centre and I run two different Diaspora pods :)More importantly, with the help of some of the #Diasporacommunity members we are now able to present to you, the Diaspora forum, running on Discourse!
(and it's even running https!)As you'll see, it's very empty at the moment, but that's because it's only been running for three days and it is very much a work in progress.We welcome you to create an account, volunteer yourself for helping out and please make some suggestions for improvements :)#Diaspora #Forum #DiasporaForum #discourse #podmin #community #support #help #podmins #newhere
Pretty good idea. I'll register and see where it goes. But you might not interest core-dev. I think they will answer you they already have IRC and github. Try to talk about it on #diaspora IRC, however.
Nice one! And awesome that you taught yourself Linux skills in the process! Impprtant stuff in the IT work market.
Discourse is nice. Will follow the forum at least iniatilly, hope it kicks off!
And don't worry if npt everyone joins - not everyone is on the mailing lists or loomio.
But what would be awesome would be to have discourse type groups inside diaspora, for easy discussion. Now old topics are just too hard to find from all 'the other noise'. If posts could also be targeted to a group with forum like view, that would cut out the need for a forum.
Nice work thank you very much! Did you now understand why the people prefer a linuxinfrastructure? I have no knowledege about both on servers and you now know both of it. So which sytem you personaly now prefer on servers?
congrats on getting the site up and running, and the path you chose to take to get there! learning new skills is always a good thing, and perhaps it'll serve you well in your professional life also. long ago i made a willful choice to be a unix admin and try to avoid windows administration, so i can't help but be happy you made the choice to start working with *nix systems. (so my happiness a bit selfish, of course. but i also chose it because i thought it was more interesting/better - and also probably because i'm a bit of a contrarian, looking for outsider options. : )
Good action : actually when knowing Linux you will understand Windows better!. You run Hyper v? that is plain Linux . Now you are an expert : what are the demand sof a simple pod server ? How much bandwidth does it need ?
@Linuxnoob - It was very strange using only a command line to do everything!! I think that's what took the most getting used to. I'm liking it though. Just the fact that the OS doesn't require 80% of the hardware resources is simply amazing.
@Frank Kooistra - I used to run HyperV but to be honest, I've been using VMware for so many years now, I much prefer it for enterprise scale virtualisation. And even for personal scale too using VMware Workstation!
@Čaj Och - Diaspora has no auth API to support such a feature I'm afraid :(
@Everyone - Thanks for the positive feedback. The forum will only be as good as the content contained inside it.
I'm hoping it becomes a good resource for podmins as it's very hard to search old posts inside Diaspora. Plus if you have a problem with your pod you can't get on your Diaspora! I'm also hoping it will work well alongside the IRC channel(s) as sometimes there is not always someone available in IRC at the same time as the person asking the question, and the question can then sometimes get lost.
Plus too, the forum could be used for helping new Diaspora users.
Much like Diaspora itself, the forum is community run - so if you can help out in any way, just shout!!
Seriously though, I really admire the fact that you had jumped right into unknown territory and gained the skills needed to host the forum on free software. Most people would go the easy route. Chapeau bas!
Thank you ! And many more thank you if you learned the linux server only to support the Diaspora* community!
May I suggest a l10n ? When this forum is a great promising forum, it would be even greater when other languages friendly ;-) About the anticipated API to login with our D* credentials, I suppose it could be easier to learn about the firefox persona ?
Of course, my suggestion may be not well received, I know. So i only suggest. Anyway, it's a fine job, serving the community. And you have all my respect !
Varios amigos míos hacen programa de radio musical en la radio municipal. Los dos que más me gustan y que recomiendo totalmente a quien guste de #rock , #bluesy #soul moderno e histórico son C. Vidal (Carlos) y A. Albo (Toñi). Dos verdaderos fenómenos en lo que a selección y gusto por la #música se refiere.

Sebright Arms, 31-35 Coate Street, London, United Kingdom
A four piece rock band from London, formed through a shared love of classic blues/rock guitar music. This is the New Rock and Roll with soulful vocals, big beats and generous guitar licks. Influenced by many of the genuine rock bands from the 60's, 70's and 90's, Cortes are keen to bring timeless music back to the fore, relevant once again to a new generation of music lovers. Rock n roll ain't dead!
Ministry of Sound, 103 Gaunt St, Elephant and Castle, London, SE1 6DP, United Kingdom
With the marathon DJ sessions of Markus Schulz now entrenched into Gallery folklore, tonight welcomes these esteemed ambassadors for his Coldharbour Recordings imprint. Promising the dark and devilish sound on which our international resident has become famed, but executed by these future heroes of the scene.
Mentored by Markus since the fledgling stages of his career, KhoMha returns after last Julys critically acclaimed Gallery debut. Impressing that night with a tumultuous blend of trance, progressive and tech, his inimitable sound is one which cannot be pigeon holed. Hence why the KhoMha experience is so engaging, combining the driving aspects of all genres into one soul shaking package.
Whether under Push, Plastic Boy or tonights pseudonym of M.I.K.E., The Belgian superstars anthemic tracks have been responsible for The Gallerys most defining moments. The Legacy, Twixt and Sunrise At Palamos amongst others, M.I.K.E. is not one to rest on his laurels. A recent acquisition to the Coldharbour crew, sees his new label productions represent the darker side of tech-trance.
After a critically acclaimed Gallery debut last August, Beat Service has gone from strength to strength. This year saw the launch of new show Beat Service Radio, which is fast building a devoted fan base and the perfect platform to spread his chunky trance worldwide. Finally two debuts, affirming The Gallerys resolve to blood hot new talent. Mr.Pit will impress with his inimitable style, which featured on a recent flagship mix for the Coldharbour Sessions Podcast. The Venom One duo is sure to air new track Revolution, a collaboration with Markus which has been a regular request in all recent sets.
The Gallery and Coldharbour Recordings. Its going to be hot.

UNEARTH -- https://www.facebook.com/unearthofficial TEXAS IN JULY -- https://www.facebook.com/texasinjulyband CRUEL HAND -- https://www.facebook.com/cruelhand ARMED FOR APOCOLYPSE -- https://www.facebook.com/armedforapocalypse
Unearth: Metalcore is a stubborn genre, and one that should never change. Luckily for tried and true death metal and metal core fans, we have Unearth to be its champion. For more than 15 years, Unearth has been staying true to the heavy metal genre that birthed them. Metal is their craft, and they do it with an attention to detail rivaled only by the dark brutality of their output. Part homage to legends like Pantera and At The Gates, part amendment to classic subgenres like Swedish death metal and early metalcore, and part uniquely Unearth, the band has never wavered in their grittiness, darkness, or their ability to excite the audience of headbangers (seriously, they've opened for metal legends Testament and easily held their own). Unearth features a death growling lead singer along with some stellar clean vocals and backing vocals from one of their two guitarists. They've got the low end down pat, solos galore, the soul of thrash metal egging them onwards, and enough stage antics for everyone. The band directly engages the audience (you will be sweated upon, front row) and leaps around the stage with wild abandon, antics that are true to the ethos of heavy metal, adding some levity to an already amped up live show. You get the feeling that these guys would be just as stoked to play someone's rowdy basement party as they would be opening up an arena festival -- they are genuine protectors of the faith (aka metal).
Texas In July: Emotional, earnest, raw, and truthful, Texas In July is a metalcore band from, you guessed it, Pennsylvania. Mixing soaring clean vocals reminiscent of emo-alternative rock of the early 2000s with guttural, growling lead vocals that shake your soul, Texas In July creates a moody yet fun blend of all things metalcore. Four boys decided to form Texas In July during their high school days and still have plenty of that youthful energy left to share with their fans. Constant touring has allowed these dudes to form a tight rapport and easy songwriting connection, despite a few line-up changes. Motifs such as transition, Christianity, and faith, mingle with the harder elements such as angry vocals, super powerful, forceful drumming, and in your face guitar. The band has got the technicality of the music down, both on record and throughout their aggressive live show, but also embraces groovin' out and jumping around on stage -- you can tell they're having fun and doing what they want to be doing. The crowd certainly picks up on the Texas In July attitude, and responds with unencumbered dancing. Every breakdown (and there are many) is a chance to jump up and waive your fists with glee.
Cruel Hand: From the tranquil wilderness of Portland, Maine, comes a decidedly un-tranquil band: Cruel Hand. Equal parts thrash, hardcore, and metal, Cruel Hand brings a devastating and brutal sound to every record and live show. The five piece haven't turned their back on fun, despite the deep heaviness of the music. Hair flies, sweat pours, and music pounds as Cruel Hand wails and growls. The band has played huge festival stages and small rooms with equal vigor - their energy, complete with rowdy stomping around stage and singing directly into the crowd, is big enough to capture any crowd. Dual guitars, excellent drumming, and lots of headbanging bring the audience some of the feeling from classic days of hardcore. Don't be surprised if their blend of thrashy hardcore inspires a mosh pit, just get out of the way.
Armed for Apocolypse: What exactly is Armed For The Apocalypse armed with? Heavy, heavy metal. You won't find any clean choruses or slightly happy tunes coming from this five piece from Chico, Ca. Hell, you'll only hear loud, aggressive, dark, and dangerous songs that rumble along at a dirge then switch to fast pace single chords and blast beats. Three guitars make for quite a heavy sound, especially when tuned down and pissed off. There's nothing more evil sounding than the growl emitted by Armed For The Apocalypse's singer -- as if he was calling some demons to his side. With dark lyrics and song titles that speak of demons, world ending, and, a personal favorite, "You Are Alive When They Start To Eat You," make no mistake: Armed For The Apocalypse is intensely, brutal, gory, and ready to explode your eardrums.
