|Albums I Am Looking Forward To In '08|
Some of the albums I am looking forward to hearing this year, not necessarily because they are good though.
|1||Protest the Hero|
At the top of the list for a reason, I am so hyped for this, I don't recall ever being as excited about an album. If it's half as good as Kezia it'll be brilliant.
I loved their latest, and I can imagine this going along the same lines, if they make a few more amazing songs like 'Road to Devastation' then they'll make a brilliant album here.
Architect of Lies
I have quite big expectations for this, one of my favourite bands so I can't wait for this.
|4|| ||In Flames|
A Sense of Purpose
They're not going to release another Jester Race, we all know that, the best we can hope for is that they improve on Come Clarity, which wasn't really that good to begin with, you can't deny you're not interested to hear what they're going to put out next.
|5|| ||Children of Bodom|
I have low expectations for this but still, might as well give it a listen.
No doubt this will come late in the year but the band are superb, looking forward to this.
Really looking forward to this, as overrated as the first album was it was still very good, if this is any improvement it will be a very strong release.
Are they releasing an album this year? I remember hearing it somewhere but I'm not sure.
I've always enjoyed this band, if not loved them, so I'm more than happy to hear they're releasing another album this year.
No idea if they are making an album right now, but I hope so, and if they do, they better go back to their old style or I'll be pissed.
We Are the Nightmare
They're quite a good band, and I enjoyed their latest, if they can improve on it in a few areas this might be surprisingly good.
Yeah, it's only an EP but still, their latest album is amazing, I'm going to eat up whatever I can from these guys.
|13|| ||Scar Symmetry|
Good band, but I don't have too high expectations for this, Pitch Black Progress wore off really quickly, still, should be solid.
It has Dan Swano doing his first lead death metal vocals for years, 'nuff said.
|Opeth's new album is coming out in spring.|
|WHERE IS TO-MERA BRO? I wasn't aware that 13 was coming out with a new album, i'm happy although Pitch Black was a dissapoitment. I agree with 2, more on the lines of Road To Devastation would be solid, I want 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,12. Metal is going to be sick in 2008.|
|14 just got me more pumped than anything!!! i had no idea about that. im pretty much looking forward for all of these except nopt so much for 5,7 and 11. |
|I loved Come Clarity. 4 will hopefully be just as good|
|Wow, I hadn't realised Swano was back with vox, can't wait for 14 then.|
1, 4, 6, 8.
But I think 6 will pwn 5, though older CoB owns.
|Finally, someone else interested in the new Katatonia album as well! Yes, I've found they're very consistently strong with their releases, and show no signs of letting up! If they improve on A Great Cold Distance it'll be one hell of an album for sure.|
However, I liked Come Clarity. I thought it was a sign In Flames is coming back strong. That's why I'm pumped for this new release of theres.
As for Opeth, yes, a new release is on the way, but they've been very mysterious about it...Akerfeldt has said it will be a very dark album though.
|I've heard teasers from 11 and it sounds like they developed more from ADFD EP than UIR (UIR sucked balls anyway). Considering the fact that UIR was rushed and was actually written before ADFD, it's not surprising.|
|kudos for protest on top|
|I am looking forward for 4-7. |
|Good list but the following are not present: Diablo Swing Orchestra, Into Eternity, Dismember, Forgotten Tomb, Necrophagist, and Iced Earth. Testament is coming out with a new one as well (although I know you're not interested). And I'm looking forward to Evergrey's new album a bit more than Mercenary's.|
|indeed, Into Eternity should be on here. But the others I'm not interested in hearing tbh.|
