The whole year DLA keeps us busy with nonsense like Demented doctrine, Warbeast, Kommandant, October Tide, Revel in Flesh, Hellbastard, Lifeless, Lecherous Nocturne... while there is a new Graveland?

Listening right now, sounds like the usual quality, thanks for this info christopher!

5.Thousand Swords
6.Dol Guldur

My compliments on Sad Wings of Destiny. If there's an Iron Maiden that fits this thread I'd say it's 'Somewhere in Time'. A more subtle, but at the same time one of their more consistent works.

I would add 'Ancient Dreams' to the best of Candlemass list.

There's to much talk about useless features in videogames. When there's news about a new GTA the first things I hear are like 'omg look how big this game is' or 'holy @#$% amazing graphics!'. Making a game bigger doesn't add anything, a shorter game like mgs1 probably beats any sandbox game.

How about:

Eye for an eye vs Animosity
Motörhead vs Overkill
Selling England by the pound vs The lamb lies down on Broadway
Dawn of possession vs Here in after
Master of reality vs vol 4

Metal / Ildjarn - Norse-Svartfraed -LTD- 2CD
« on: March 30, 2013, 10:44:04 AM »
Just received this news:

"DELUXE RE-ISSUE OF NORSE CULT BAND ILDJARN`s EARLY WORKS! LTD. double DIGi CD IN SLIPCASE! ILDJARN was a black metal band from Norway, formed in 1991 and active until 1997, has been hailed as one of the purest and most ferocious musical projects within the realm of extreme music. The music can be described as primitive and pretty lo-fi black metal, straightforward drums, riffs and harsh, hateful vocals, the later musical creations ventured into Ambient spheres. Although some releases included collaborations or guest appearances from other musicans (Nidhogg, Ihsahn, Samoth) the sole creator and man behind was always Vidar, who was previously also active with Thou Shalt Suffer (pre-Emperor) and later with Sort Vokter. Ildjarn showed true mastery in its craft, building ambience by simple tones, riffs and rhythmic arrangements that often tend to be more like a buzz of noise compared to common music.This essential and unprocessed 4-track musical force has always been exceeding and pushing the limits of emotional perception for most of its receivers. "

This seems to be something different than the Season of Mist re-releases. Don't know the tracklist, but Mørklagt Sti, Svarte Hjerter, Nattens Ledestjerne, Natt Og Tåke, I Anmarsj Gjennom Grangrunn, Ved Tjernets Bredd, Vintermark & Skogens Hatefulle Skapning seem obvious. Being a 2CD release, this could be promising.

I'm not exactly a fan of 'Die Zauberflöte' as a whole, but this is the first song I could think of:


Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön,
Wie noch kein Auge je gesehn!
Ich fühl es, wie dies Götterbild
Mein Herz mit neuer Regung füllt.
Dies Etwas kann ich zwar nicht nennen,
Doch fühl ich's hier wie Feuer brennen.
Soll die Empfindung Liebe sein?
Ja, ja! Die Liebe ist's allein!
O wenn ich sie nur finden könnte!
O wenn sie doch schon vor mir stände!
Ich würde - würde - warm und rein –
Was wurde ich? –
Ich würde sie voll Entzücken
An diesen heissen Busen drücken,
Und ewig wäre sie dann mein.

On the 'romantic' level my Girlfriend likes stuff like Drake, The XX, Simon & Garfunkel, The-Dream and Geliebte Des Regens (Nargaroth).

Metal / Re: Help finish Birth A.D.'s debut album
« on: April 16, 2012, 10:52:19 AM »
Update:

"In just 6 days, we're halfway to our goal! Thanks to each and every one of you for supporting this album and Birth A.D.! We're really amazed by the incredible response, and we look forward to making it count when the album it out and we start coming to your towns and cause problems!

Since this is going so well, I've decided to add a special bonus item - a test pressing of the "Stillbirth of a Nation" EP on vinyl! This is a one-of-a-kind unique item (as the kids are calling it on the Skyrims), and we'll even autograph the sleeve! Anyone who contributed is automatically entered for a chance to win!

If you haven't contributed yet, now's the time to get in on the action!


We'll pick a random winner at the end of the drive next month. Thanks again for contributing, and good luck!!!

Best Regards,

Jeff and Birth A.D."


Apparently they really want to take care of their fans.
