Mournful Congregation - White Cold Wrath Burnt Frozen Blood
Haven't heard their tunes in ages. Time to change that.

Death - Low Life

Death haven't really clicked for me yet, despite having listened to them for longer than any of the other death-metal bands I'm starting to reallyget into. 2013 is going to by my year for death metal, I think... but perhaps not Death'smetal.

Enslaved - Raidho

Enslaved's newer material goes really well with metaphysics. Music and reading material are working together nicely for a change.

Metaphysical vikings. Well, that's something now...

I always thought "Raidho" was a loose metaphor on the viking history of pillaging and raping. Hence the song's title "Raid" + "hoe". :-P

Well, I don't really think that, but "Raidho" is one of the weaker pieces off of AEO in my opinion, and the song title is hard for me to take seriously.

now playing:
The Secrets of the Black Arts by Dark Funeral

Visigoth - Seven Golden Ships

Very good stuff here, reminds me of Judas Priest. I checked em out on a whim because I'm a big fan of Gallowbraid and they do not disappoint.

Raidho is one of the Norse runes, I think - it's got something to do with wondering and journeys, so it may well have some of the pillaging thing going on. Thematically, Enslaved do seem to be going down a philosiviking path.

I'd say Lightning is my favourite from the album, at the moment I'm on Singular.

Well, you can wonder anywhere I guess. The phonetics of ancient languages in modern English can conjure up some awkward thoughts in some people, I'll grant you that.

The ones I like the most on Axioma... are "Warrun", "Giants", and "Lightening" (I'm pretty sure it is "Lightening" rather than "Lightning"). Really likable album, though Grutle's harsh vocals get a little grating on some songs (like the verse passages of "Ethica Odini").

Pure brilliance. The band sounds so fresh, and Ozzy sounds incredible.

Soilwork - Rejection Role

Pretty bad verses, some weak groove riffs, but a catchy chorus and some nice leads.

Don't worry, I own three of their albums.

Tribulation - Seduced By the Smell of Rotten Flesh. Getting myself ready for the arrival of their new album.
