Obliveon - Access to the Acropolis

This is excellent progressive death/thrash. It actually makes me imagine otherworldly places, which most music of this type doesn't. Highly recommended.

Deus Mortem - Emanations of the Black Light

wasn't expecting much, but it's an enjoyable slab of polish bm.

Moonsorrow - Pimeä

This is probably my fave Moonsorrow song and one of the best 'epic' metal songs overall.

October Falls - Snakes Of The Old World

First time listening to "The Plague Of A Coming Age"... it took me some spins to really appreciate "The Womb Of Primordial Nature", so I won't judge this too early.

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").
