Any Amon Amarth fans on here?
Any news on a new album?
I like AA. Is this new album out already?
I love AA, seen them twice live and they always deliver!
They're my second favourite band (after Iron Maiden). I absolutely love them! Glad to see more fans here!
They're recording demos right now I think. Check this topic out:
No problem mate! Any AA album is a highlight in life for me haha!
Top albums of the year for me:
Timor et Trimor:
Woods of Ypres
Diabolical Swing Orchestra
Still have about 60 albums to listen to. But this is out of 230 albums.
Anyone seen this?
My top metal albums of 2012:
With no possible contest, this is the years best album:
Best song: Anastasia
Next best, springtime shoegaze black metal from france
Helped me to find a lot of geocaches:
Their magnum opus:
Currently the worlds best post-grunge!
folk metal is a difficult genra to enjoy, but this one made it easy:
A new band, will definitely become Arch Enemy of the new generation:
Another favourite band of mine:
Checkin 'em out now
They remind me alot of Hypocrisy, check them out if you haven't. Hypocrisy is alot better I'd say.
Deftones new album "Koi No Yokan" is amazing, Have been listening to it the past few days, stand out tracks to me are:
I'm on it, thanks
I highly recommend their album Virus, Colossal Spoons!
Peter Tätgren is a genius! (Rumor has it that he's gonna take over the vocals in Bloodbath when they make their comeback)
Both Hypocrisy and Pain are awesome (if anyone want some good industrial metal, you should check out Pain)
Indeed! And he seems like a cool person as well!
It's extremely unfortunate that Mikael Åkerfeldt quit Bloodbath because his growls fit that music like a glove. At the same time, he's spoken openly in interviews that he's grown tired of death metal. Given the direction Opeth is going now, I think it's very unlikely that we'll ever hear him grow in new albums anymore. Very sad because I loved how diverse he was with Opeth.
That Tägtgren rumour isn't too far fetched actually since he's been a member of that band before. Would be cool even though he's extremely busy as it is now already.
I agree about both Hypocrisy and Pain! Cool to see another fan! I don't know if I'm in a minority or not but I actually think the latest two albums of Hypocrisy: Virus and A Taste Of Extreme Divinity (not counting the remake of Catch 22 even though that's a good one as well) are some of the best ones. Some of the older stuff sounds too old school even for me.
Apparently, Hypocrisy will release another album next year I heard. I look forward to that one very much!
His project Pain is great as well! I love the latest album!
I love this album. They just get better with age.
Any Danzig fans here? They're one of my top 10 favorite bands ever.
I saw him once a couple of years ago, my god his biceps are huge even now haha!
Alice in Cahins have a new song coming out next week called Hollow. Should be getting info on the new album soon, too.
Rodgrigo y Gabriela also have a new album coming out in spring, as do Scale the Summit.
Tool should be recording early next year, hopefully, it's been far too long.
I saw Opeth in Dublin a few weeks back, they were fantastic. Awesome set, plenty old songs, though could have done with more Heritage:
The Devil's Orchard
Ghost of Perdition
I think he'll do some growling here & there in future, but I like the direction they took with Heritage, so I'm up for more of that.
They played a few unplugged sets recently. Demon of the Fall was re-aranged & sounds great.
They recorded those shows so hopefully they'll release a live album.
best thing about Åkerfeldt is his stage talk, I would honestly watch 90 minutes of just him talking to the audience
Virus is their best album. Warpath is goddamn scorcher of a song. They're a damn good live band too.
Honestly, Tagtgren was my favorite Bloodbath vocalist. There was nothing wrong with Akerfeldt (it is Akerfeldt afterall), but Tagtgren just sounded so evil.
Oh definitely, Warpath is one of my favourite metal songs of all time! It's a bone crusher!
Another favourite of mine from AToED is Solar Empire! Awesome chorus!
I just found this band, Kobra and the Lotus it's classic heavy (very heavy ) metal for the 21th century basically:
