Digging: Dagoba - Post Mortem Nihil Est
I absolutely love that album art. Might purchase this.
Re-recordings? As in with the current line-up or is this just remastered?
Also, the new Katy Perry artwork is better... that cover makes me feel like I'm in some redneck walmart fishing isle.
Digging: Heliotropes - A Constant Sea
I think it should be just remastered but let me do a quick check
EDIT: you're right, they re-recorded them with the current line-up
Wow they re-recorded all of these? I'm definitely checking this out. And I also think the artwork is pretty awesome.
Digging: Mac Miller - Watching Movies With The Sound Off
Same here. Though I would have loved some songs from Am Universum here as well.
Is there some kind of significance with the large fish?
Digging: HIM - Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights
Love that giant fish. Might get this.
Re-recordings? Tomi on vocals with 'My Kantele'? SWEET.
As a huge fan of Tales from the Thousand Lakes I'm actually a bit skeptical about the re-recordings. Hopefully it'll turn out alright
I'm really interested to hear the re-recordings, especially Black Winter Day.
Sweet. I wasn't too big into their earlier stuff but maybe the re-recordings will change that. Against Widows is killer.
Digging: Dog Fashion Disco - Adultery
I forgot about this band after that last album...but I like them. Perhaps I'll get this?
"that cover makes me feel like I'm in some redneck walmart fishing isle."
HAHA! I like it actually, going to get this for sure.
Hmm, it'll definitely be interesting to hear "Black Winter Day" and "Drowned Maid" with Tomi on vocals in-studio.
Fucking awesome album art, might buy but I doubt it considering I have no need to buy an album with a bunch of songs I already have.
Digging: Dark Tranquillity - Construct
They're re-recorded. You don't have these ;)
I liked Skyforger. I'll definitely get this.
Digging: Sigur Ros - Kveikur
This is true, but I'm really not sure how classic songs like Black Winter Day will sound with their current lineup..... I have a feeling they won't be as good.
Hmmm maybe it's just me and high production sensitivity but I always longed for Tales with better drum production and louder harsh vocals
Hell. Yes. This is awesome.
Digging: Letlive. - The Blackest Beautiful
Will def get, also lol at artwork
Digging: Author - Forward Forever
sorry to remind you guys but re-recorded compilations almost always suck massive balls. i doubt this will be an exception
Hmmm, barracuda artwork. Interesting.
Digging: Nuclear Death - Bride of Insect
'sorry to remind you guys but re-recorded compilations almost always suck massive balls. i doubt this will be an exception'
Oops sorry I forgot about this, won't be checking this out now
It will be amazing to hear Tomi's vocals doing those songs. While I love Amorphis's old stuff, the vocals really were kind of weak. The live clips I've seen of them doing older songs with Tomi on vocals were really good. Also, this is a really good track list.
13. Light My Fire [The Doors cover] [bonus track] hahaha sweet
