I tried to listen to this album recently and thought it had a pretty lame production, which's a shame because i felt the songs were pretty enjoyable. Not that I can't enjoy raw music (hails to nidhogg), but what a wasted potential, I couldn't even hear the vocals properly, which is, again, a shame because I thought they were pretty cool.

I was thinking about Ensiferum, Finntroll, and Saor.
I used to think Saor was okay, but not anymore. They have some good riffs, but they do not construct good pieces with them.

Finntroll was unbearable in the beginning due to keyboard cheese, but now I think that they have some very good works which describe a culture thas has a healthy attitude towards violence, lives in harmony with nature, is somewhat xenophobic, and very united in cause. I find that interesting. But like I said, I had to get over what seemed to be a formidable barrier of cheese to get to this point. The music often has fighting spirit, but is morally ambiguous. Actually, it is not that the music is cheesy. It is goofy. And I wondered how goofy music could ever describe something profound.

Examples tracks: Krigsmjöd, Skogens Hämnd


Ensiferum are two different bands. Old Ensiferum is like an atmospheric heavy metal band. Their music is  like heroic quasi mythological tales, with a dash of isolation and darkness. They have some decent polyphony, usually with three instruments following a major theme, but differing slightly in tone and rhytm, sometimes with one instrument playing some sort of counter melody.

Example track: Treacherous Gods, Token of Time

New Ensiferum is like a maximalist heavy metal band with slight touches of power metal. In the beginning, I had a hard time appreciating From Afar because it was a wall of sound which I could not distinguish individual details in, and Victory Songs because the depth of the music comes from the instruments relations to each other and what they create together - often greater than the sum of all individual parts.
The music has traits of northern European landscape (Winter on From Afar, Autumn on on Victory Songs), always during day time.

There is an obvious heroic tone of valour and fighting, more overt and vulgar than old Ensiferum.
Technically, they often have each instrument pick a tone in relation to the others, so for example, instrument A will form a 4 tonal paralell with the next instrument, which in turn forms a 5 tonal paralell with the next one.
Then, staying in this formation, they will move around and play melodies, usually differing in rhytm and occasionally wandering from their place in the formation, while orchestral backing accentuates and provides extra texture.

Example tracks, Winter: From Afar, Smoking Ruins
Example tracks, Autumn: Deathbringer from the sky, Blood is the price of glory

These bands are not death metal or black metal, and despite how unpopular this opinion probably is around here, I will defend these bands as quality heavy metal. I did not like either of them at first, but the more I listen to them, the more I appreciate the technical structuring as well as the romantic themes.

Tell me why I am wrong and they suck. Bring me your best reasons.

Grindcore with black metal atmosphere. Personally I prefer Blood for this, but Fallen Angel of Doom is a great album.

Yes, as grindcore, Blood is fantastic blackened thrash! O Agios Pethane still rocks!

I don't see anything wrong with labeling homosexuality as a mental disorder or condition.  The only problem is, so what?  Does it impede their ability to contribute to society?  And if it's a disorder that prevents them from reproducing, what's the concern?  They can't have kids.  Aside from all that, there's no way of curing it (despite what nutjob Christians would have you believe).  So we're simply stuck with them, which is fine with me.  More men and women for a workforce, but without the sexual competition.

The homosexual behavior (acting like the opposite sex) makes you socially dysfunctional in all sorts of ways though. I don't know any homosexuals myself however, maybe most of them aren't the cartoonish fruitcakes you see on tv.

On topic... I can't really think of any good folk metal at this moment. The term leaves a somewhat sugary, but bad taste in my mouth. What kind of bands did you have in mind, voddy?
