you can also get them from standard places like amazon, but it's more expensive.  for those not fascinated with hard copies, amazon and itunes (and presumably others) have mp3 album downloads that are entirely listenable--that's how i got Advent Parallax.

speaking of that album, it struck me that while the songs taken individually were not quite as impressive/standoutish as those on Tetragrammatical Astygmata (Sonance Innumberate, anyone?), the album works together as a whole better than anything they've ever done before.  there is a synergy to it that makes it far more than the sum of its parts.

I just recently got into these guys, but if the third album follows in the footsteps of the first two, it will make me very happy.

okay, neither Slayer's "Reign in Blood" nor Emperor's "In the Nightside Eclipse" showed up on their search engine, so I ordered both from amazon and had them shipped directly there.  Add them to the list!

I know that i've never posted anything before, but I studied classical music for several years and recognition of metal by classically trained academicians/musicians is a subject that is rather near to my heart.

do you guys know if they accept stuff that is shipped to them directly from some sort of merchant (amazon or the like)?  if they did, i could totally order one or two classics for the cause (preferably selected by someone more knowledgeable than myself) and have them shipped directly there.  otherwise i can't really do much, as I live in Bulgaria and having things shipped to/from is a pain in the ass even when it arrives and unbelievably expensive whether it does or not.
