    Numbered is a great song. even though i like evil death metal, there's a note devin hits on that when he sings "I'm alright to fly!" which makes my eyes well up! damn, he has a voice on him.

    Wohoo, received an e-mail of the Germans, Cripper. CD's will be on their way soon after they have signed them.

    Kevin, are you looking for any Gorefest albums? Maybe I can give you a hand in finding something specific that's isn't "available" that easy nowadays.

    The 2 albums I need by them are not out of print or difficult to find, nor am I in a huge rush to get them. Soul Survivor & Chapter 13, they are "death & roll" so I'm getting them to have their complete discography, as opposed to "needing something hard to find". If anything the Japanese version of SS has a few bonus tracks so I put those on my Trade list and things to look out for.

    Thanks though :mrgreen:

    This is easily the most coherent, logical, well thought out and use of proper grammer by Debb yet. (regardless of the actual opinion)

    Routasielu - Pimeys
    God Dethroned - Passiondale

    Not bad for $207 and I don't have to drive anywhere to get them :mrgreen: The only other things I will be buying in the immediate future will be the new Autopsy and Morbid Angel, everything else will have to wait.

    What the hell is going on here. Arkan is death metal (that song sounds good, will have to check them out further). Amon Amarth, even you folky/power metal types seem to love. Kampfar, okay black metal. Very brutal purchases by you all of a sudden.

    Nah just in a brutal mood I guess :lol: I'll buy some fairy unicorn worshiping power metal albums next time ;)

    I really like this Arkan album. Throws a little middle eastern music in to sooth my folk metal desires with it :shred:

    I don't mind folk metal "in theory". Heck My Dying Bride started using violins when it was totally unheard of I loved it. I love Pan Thy Monium and all it's jazzy weirdness (sax, flutes, horns, etc.).

    But when those bands were doing it in the early to mid nineties, it was unique and uncommon, so it stood out like an exotic fruit. Nowadays folk metal bands are a dime-a-dozen and it just comes across as too gimmicky for it's own good (with the rare exception of something like ARKONA & SEAR BLISS who balance it with thrash/black/death metal). If you have a tin whistle, pan flute or hurdy gurdy going the whole time for every song it wears thin.

    But like anything else, I really got into the music scene full force when death metal reared it's head. It seems that the younger crowd here got into music when alot of the folk metal bands were emerging, so that's what they were drawn to.

    At least this forum isn't filled with deathcore/metalcore loving types. :lol: :mrgreen: :lol:

    Well with the Arkan CD I don't think the folk is really way out in front. It more complements the music than anything else as some bands focus too much on the folk and not enough on the metal. There are folky interludes but it's not like you're hearing the folk stuff throughout the whole songs. Plus, there aren't a ton of bands that use middle eastern folk (at least relative to all the scandinavian folk bands).

    Yeah after hearing a few of the Myspace songs that seems to be the case in a good way. Alot of times with that, LESS IS MORE and it heightens it's impact when the sound is used. Hence why I don't like alot of the newer "brutal death metal bands". Who play at 1 speed for an entire song/album. It's absolutely laughable & boring.


    Speaking of Season of Mist Records (ARKAN's label), they seem to be have of different stuff nowadays:

    NADER SADEK you might like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MB8B40PWZ3A
    Not sure if you can access this link without a FaceBook account, but you can try: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nader-Sad ... 8091127385 6 minutes of bunch of clips from the album

    Also, MORBID ANGEL's new album is coming out on SoM. I know alot of "non" death metal fans seem to like Amon Amarth as they feel they can understand the vocals better than most bands (I don't believe that to be the real reason, but I digress).

    But David Vincent of Morbid Angel has one of the most intelligible voices while still being brutal/harsh, ALOT easier to understand than Johan Hegg. I'd urge people who never checked out MA before to do so now OR when the new album comes out. I'm sure I'll be freaking out like a crack monkey when it comes out in June (crossing fingers it lives up to even a fraction of the hyper/wait).

    That Nader Sadek video is :shock: The music on the video isn't bad but the samples on that Facebook page (which I can get to) fails to grab me.

    Me liking Amon Amarth has nothing to do with understanding the vocals, hell, I listen to black metal :lol: They just have very catchy melodies to go along with their music. Can you suggest any Morbid Angel? I never really got into them from the limited stuff I've heard.

    Nader stuff is just different, hence the recommendation. I'm still on the fence about a purchase as I need to hear more, but it has me intrigued. RE: AA, I was speaking more so of the non brutal vocal crowd.

    Morbid Angel links, sure, but it would be easier if you were on FB. Here they are in order of EARLIEST to NEWEST material (spanning 4 albums):

    You can always PM them to me too. I'm never joining Facebook. No matter how easy it would make it for you. Oh, and speaking of Facebook. Quit it with the Yankee shenanigans :evil: If Marlo shows up in a Yankees shirt she's getting on the next flight back to Calgary. :lol: Yes, I know you're trying to start shit.

    NEXT FLIGHT BACK TO CALGARY?!? :evil: :evil: :evil:

    Empty threat. I'm like a flame to a power metal moth so to speak for some damnable reason. Besides, who HAS the Red Sox tickets of the game we're going to? :P

    For the record I initially brought up the Yankees on there, Kevin was just highly encouraging it :lol:

    And you would do nothing of the sort. She could walk around with a Jeter jersey for 4 days and you would follow her around like a pathetic lap dog. Image

    And which one of your little stoollies is feeding you the Facebook info ?
