Helloween - Heaven Tells No Lies

"I need a shotgun in my dreams toniiiiiiigggghhhhtttt..." That line is always interesting to me. Cool song too. Groovy and catchy.


And his charismatic delivery is almost nearly as interesting. That's definitely one of my favorite Deris Helloween songs.

Enslaved - RIITIIR

And so it begins. Obsession, part infinity.

Evoken - Of Purest Absolution

This is right up there with Tending The Dire Hatred as one of my all-time favorite Evoken tracks. Absolutely bludgeoning as all hell. I really do want to find more bands / songs particularly in this vein.

My Dying Bride - The Barghest O' Whitby

I dunno about this one. It's pretty much the only thing they've done that I haven't immediately loved.

Nightwish - Taikatalvi

Skipping straight to the new album, because Nightwish already have a bloated track count on my Last.fm. More astute stalkers will also notice I skipped "Walking in the Air," because fuck that song.

"Inle" -
Fall of Efrafa

One of my top ten, easily.

At the Toronto show last week, the audience stood there for like ten minutes after the final bows doing the usual "one more song!" chants. I think what really tipped us off that there wasn't going to be an encore was when the roadie came and started disassembling the drum kit. :-P Great show, though.

Rush - The Garden

Awesome.

If I were that roadie, I would've performed a song by myself. Hey, they asked for it!

Nightwish - Turn Loose the Mermaids

Considering the title's an homage to My Dying Bride and Tuomas says they were a major influence, you'd think it'd be all over the place. But it isn't. :scratch:
______________________________________________________________________________________________
Nightwish - Rest Calm

I read a review where someone described this song as "doomy." I nearly rage-shat myself.
______________________________________________________________________________________________
Nightwish - Song of Myself

The sheer amount of vitriol aimed at this song puzzles me, and the only explanation I have is that these people have either never read the original poem, have no idea what the original poem's intent and meaning are, or have no idea that the song is meant to encapsulate the spirit of the poem.

Annihilator - Ultra-Motion

Is it a guitar? Is it a swarm of bees? Man may never know.

It plays some pretty good riffs, though.

Nope, it's because it sucks and is filled with awful voice overs. Nothing to do with the lyrical content - and I have read the poem, by the way.

I dread even imagining what the newest Nightwish must sound like. One thing I've noticed about all these "female fronted" bands--all the awful gimmick bands with "angelic" vocals and half-assed songwriting are all men with a token female singer who has no other talents besides C-cups. The ones that are actually metal have women who play instruments and participate in the songwriting process as equals.

Nocturnal Rites - Ring of Steel

A classy yet humble tune from a once-great band.

Benediction - Deadfall.

Aside from the one-off burst of rap, which took me by surprise, Grind Bastard as a whole might well be one of my favorite death-metal albums.

serpentine path: arrows from the self titled album. This is some godly death/sludge/doom and easily a top ten albums of the year contender.

Mauldin of the well - leaving your body map.

I finally got off work. This CD was waiting for me when I arrived home. Sounds very good. I actually haven't listened to this entire album before.

Tonight I see a classical music concert of some sort in a couple hours.
