Metal / Cleaning out my music collection....
« on: September 26, 2010, 03:42:41 AM »
I seem to have accumulated a lot of music that I haven't really been able to get into, despite having had these files on my computer or music player for quite some time. I want to delete some of these albums, explore other bands, but the problem is that some of my favorite bands took me a while to appreciate (these tend to be bands recommended by ANUS). So here's a list of stuff I have, looking for simple advice - delete, worth keeping, or listen to ASAP (or perhaps advice regarding checking out better work by the bands in question).

Abigor - Orkblut
Absu - Tara
Auzhia - The Key of Throne
Averse Sefira - Tetragrammatical Astygmata
Bathory - Under the Sign of the Black Mark
Beithioch - Aisling Dhorcha
Bethlehem - Dictius te Necare (I have Dark Metal, which seems to be much better....)
Blazemth - Fatherland, For Centuries Left Behind
Blut aus Nord - Memoria Vetusta 2, The Work Which Transforms God (I quite like Ultima Thule, but these albums.....)
Carpathian Forest - Through Chasm Caves and Titan Woods
Dark Tribe - In Jeraspunta
Dawn - Slaughtersun
Dissection - The Somberlain, Storm of the Lights Bane
Enslaved - Frost (Vikingligr Veldi is awesome, but this.....)
Evilfeast - Mysteries of the Nocturnal Forest
Fen - Ancient Sorrow
Forest of Fog - Nebelhymen
Gorgoroth - Destroyer
Horn - Naturkraft
In the Woods - Heart of the Ages
Krallice - Krallice
Krieg - Destruction Ritual
Kroda - All albums except "Towards the Firmaments..."
Kvist - For Kunsten Ma Vi Evig Vike
Lunar Aurora - Ars Moriendi
Manes - Under Ein Blodraud Maane
Moonblood - Blut Und Krieg
Mutilation - Remains of a Ruined Dead Cursed Soul
Nachtmystium - Eulogy 4
Naglfar - Hunengrab Im Herbst, Srrontgorrth
Nargaroth - Herbstleyd
Nazgul - De Expugnatione Elfmuth
Nazxul - Iconoclast
Negative Plane - Et in Saecula Saculorum
Negura Bunget - Inarborat Kosmos, Om, N Crugu Bradului
Night Conquers Day - The First Snowfall
Pensees Nocturnes - Vacuum
Primordial - To the Nameless Dead
Profanatica - Profanitatis de Domonatia
Sacramentum - The Coming of Chaos (but I really really love Far Away from the Sun)
Sorcier des Glaces - Moonrise in Total Darkness (although Snowland is really great)
Sunwheel - Monuments of Elder Faith
Urfaust - Geist ist Teufel
Veles - Black Hateful Metal, The Triumph of Pagan Beliefs
Vinterland - Welcome My Last Chapter
Weakling - Dead as Dreams
Windir - Arntor
Wodensthrone - Loss
Wolves in the Throne Room - Diadem of 12 Stars (I listen to Two Hunters sometimes)
Wyrd - Huldrafolk, Heathen
Zyklon B - Blood Must be Shed

And now, bands I listened to one or two  times, but will might never bother with again:

Anti - The Insignificance of Life
Belenos - Spicilege
Blood of Kingu - De Occulta Philosophia
Cobalt - Eater of Birds
Coldworld - Melancholie
Darkspace - Darkspace 2
Drudkh - Firth Four Albums
Gris - Il Etait une Foret
Isengard - Hostmorke
Manegarm - Vredens Tid
Nachtmystium - Instinct Decay
Nortt - Gudsforladt, Hedengang
Nyktalgia - Nyktalgia
Satyricon - Dark Medieval Times
Sombre Forets - Royaume De Glace
Taarma - Remnants of a Tormenting Black Shadow
Zuriaake - Afterimage of Autumn

Worth lsitening to again, or delete?

Metal / Summoning's "Oath Bound"
« on: March 13, 2009, 11:30:50 PM »
Ive been listening to Summonings discoraphy and was mesmerized by Minas Morgul and Dol Guldur. Ive skipped forward to Oath Bound after being dissapointed with Stronghold due to it being recommended by Anus. However, I can barely appreciate this album at all. I forget the melodies and riffs minutes after listening to this songs. Barely a fraction of the way through the songs, I get the urge to skip to the next track. Aesthetically it seems identical to their early works but something is missing.

Metal / Likely factual error in DLA Strid review
« on: November 02, 2008, 03:42:44 AM »
In the review recently posted on the DLA, it is claimed that Strid ripped off a Graveland song.

Quote
Note the rip of Graveland's "Gates the Kingdom of Darkness" on the third track.

The third track in the compilation album is Strids End of Life demo which was released in 1993:

http://www.metal-archives.com/release.php?id=175343

I cant find Gravelands Gates to the Kindom of Darkness in any release before 1994, only on the Celtic Winter demo/album:
