Re: Nos' Top Twenty(!) Of 2018:

20. Lola Black - Nothing's Gonna Be Alright Solid radio rock with good hooks, minus the n-word laced cover song at the end. That deducts major points. Don't know ... but yeah, based on that last comment I have no interest at all in listening to it. 19. Slash - Living The Dream Slash's tone is amazi...

Re: Soen - Lotus

Yet you always go out of your way to make sure we know how different you are and how much you don’t identify yourself with the metal scene to the point where it has the adverse effect. It's a way of saying 'don't feel bad saying you think it sucks'. But we don’t think that the stuff you listen to s...

Re: New Candlemass tune ...

It sounds to me like Leif has been listening to a lot of those doomy, occult-ish 70s style rock bands out there. It doesn't sound like Candlemass, as they have been for the last twenty years. The last 20 years of Candlemass wasn’t as good as the first 15, so ... ;) Well, I don’t necessarily think i...

New Candlemass tune ...

The big deal here is obviously that the original singer, Johan langquist, is back with the band ... well, sure, that’s always something lol - but his voice is not what got me into the band originally (~30 years ago). Back then, as now, it has always been about Leif Edling’s amazing doomy tunes. What...

Re: Soen - Lotus

The only reason you don’t feel comfortable with the term metalhead is because of what it means to other people (or what you think it means to them). You shouldn’t be so concerned with what other people think - be proud of who you are and what you do with your life - that includes what music you lis...

Re: Soen - Lotus

You always make a point out of saying how much you dislike metal but that kind of stance is more in line with the Beavis and Butthead kind of “Im a true metal head” attitude than a true open minded one, so you’re actually painting yourself into the exact same corner you’re claiming to dislike by sa...

If you'd have told me Conception would make a comeback without Tore, I'd have told you to get bent, ...

It still sounds like Hollow - no denying that! Andreas’ voice is just as good as back in the day. It’s perhaps not the most incr...

Re: Apparently Warkings wasn’t enough ...

I see a big difference here. Warkings is a serious attempt at jumping on the popularity of the masked/power metal genre. They are pushing it, touring, etc. I didn't care for it, but I don't think the label views this as a joke. Cash grab, sure. The other is just Christopher getting really drunk and...

Largely instrumental ambient progmetal. If Glenn's link doesn't convince you, don't bother with the rest, but I'd be shocked if that didn't do it for you.

Re: Conception back with classic line-up!

The EP is quite good indeed. Roy sounds great. But damn it's mellow! Lacks some crunchy riffing IMO... Besides a few tracks (“cardinal sin” and “tell me when i’m gone”) so was FLOW. Most fans didn’t like it when that came out because it was such a change in style from the power progressive metal of...
