  • Jethro42 Hey Myth, I've made a Gazpacho's top 20 list if ever you're interested. I'm looking for some visit haha. Here's the link;
    November 8 03:12 PM
  • OmairSh I think you'll find some stuff you'll like here
    September 30 10:58 AM
  • OmairSh Well since you're in Europe the bands will come often enough. Nice, is that the first time Steven's visiting Greece? And the trick to getting bands to provide feedback on reviews is aiming for less known bands. I remember one band posted Mad's review on their fb page a while back
    September 25 01:14 AM
  • OmairSh Yo, saw Riverside last night. Was goooood. And how about Votum commenting on my review? All about Polish prog at the moment for me it seems :-P
    September 24 02:35 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah it's between a 3 and a 3.5, and right now I feel like it's a 3.5. Might drop in the future though. The releases I was looking forward to this year didn't wow me like I wanted them to
    September 9 09:29 PM
  • Sabrutin I see you are a fan of lyric videos (yes I am sarcastic), take a look here and prepare the laughs:
    September 9 06:48 PM
  • OmairSh I'm seeing that you like the darker Anathema albums. In that case you'll probably enjoy A Natural Disaster as well. WHBWH is also a great album, and like all great bands, Anathema albums take a while to properly digest, and have to be listened to in the right mood to be fully enjoyed. Oh cool, might check the Deer Hunter if it's diverse and bombastic and wacky.
    September 7 08:35 PM
  • OmairSh If you enjoyed Alternative 4 more, then Judgement would be the next logical album to check out. Haven't listened to Deer Hunter, but I thought the artwork was very cool. How is it?
    September 7 02:48 PM
  • OmairSh Enjoying Anathema then?
    September 6 06:01 PM
  • OmairSh One thing I forgot to point out. 3rd paragraph, 3rd line, after (S.O.N.G.S ? ring a bell?) there should be a full stop
    September 5 02:24 PM
  • OmairSh Yo check your e-mail
    September 5 01:44 PM
  • OmairSh Hey, currently reading it
    September 5 12:50 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah sure man
    September 4 05:35 PM
  • Tunaboy45 No problem, always happy to proofread a review.
    September 4 04:11 PM
  • Tunaboy45 Post it here and I'd be happy to proofread it:
    September 4 04:00 PM
  • OmairSh Odd song choice for a video. I guess it's safe enough for a lot of people to enjoy, but then again it's not like it's a groundbreaking song (very Steven Wilson-esque) to catch people's attention. And releasing the lyric video first was also a strange move, since the first video gets most of the views normally. This video though is pretty good. Great scenic shots, and high quality that the band deserves.
    September 4 01:35 PM
  • OmairSh Well if ''Woah, what's this!?' is the feeling I should experience, then great, because I wanted them to experiment with their sound. Btw, they released a new video for Found and I'm too lazy to write a news article for it. You want to?
    September 4 01:27 PM
  • OmairSh I decided to wait till today :-P. Thanks though. Whoa 4.5?! I was expecting it to be a 3.5 for me, I'm still staying cautious
    September 4 02:38 AM
  • OmairSh Nicee, yeah Alt 4 is a goood album. I was surprised you hadn't heard Anathema before because you liked bands such as Riverside, Porcupine Tree, etc. But better late than never. And whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! Well it's one day before but still whaaaa. SHAME!............Sooo what's the link? :-P
    September 3 12:17 PM
  • Sabrutin They indeed got lost in a cave with branches. I'd take a look at the film, you may notice how inappropriate for children it can be at times haha. My avatar genuinely scared me.
    September 3 11:05 AM
  • TheIntruder Ok. Thanks a lot Mythodea. My hello also. I will send you a message if I need it. Probably we will reading things from each other and keeping contact.Once more thanks.
    September 3 05:42 AM
  • OmairSh I'm normally moody when it comes to music, that's why I feel bad when someone recs me something and I don't listen to it. Because if I'm not in the right mood, I won't appreciate the music properly. And these mood lengths vary from a few days, to a few hours. I only enjoy certain styles of music during these moods. So I can kind of understand how you feel.

  • OmairSh Yeah he does look similar to Tate heh. Oh I thought you'd enjoy the singles. Well if you're still interested the 3rd song is from the In Search Of Truth album (which is considered by most to be their groundbreaking/best album). Maybe the band actually isn't your cup of tea, or maybe you're not in the right mood for 'em now. I dunno. It took me a while to properly appreciate the band.
    September 2 12:26 PM
  • KevinKC And I don't exactly mean "stupid," I mean complacent. Are we that far into stupidity that this degrading behavior is actually extremely complacent and un-subversive ? (I'm not trying to determine whether it's art or not).
    September 2 08:49 AM
  • KevinKC Oh man, I wasn't talking about you, I was talking about Miley's behavior. I'm really sorry if I vexed you. I was wondering if what she was doing could be that stupid. I wouldn't have written a private message to you just to insult you. I'm just very unsettled by her video.
    September 2 08:38 AM
  • KevinKC Are we that far into stupidity ?
    September 1 10:04 PM
  • KevinKC Hey hello, I've seen your comment on Miley Cyrus' video and you answered one of my question but... seriously, does the video really suggest that she likes to have someone ejaculate on her face ? I mean, yes, obviously the comparison with sperm is there, but to me, who isn't really aware of how stupid girls think nowadays, I would have perceived it as the complete opposite. A desire to inspire disgust to those who would wanna do that.
    September 1 10:03 PM
  • OmairSh Choose the album whose single you like more. Blinded is from Recreation Day, while Touch of blessing is from Inner Circle., Their older albums are slightly better imo and darker, but I think either of these two would be good to start with.
    September 1 03:32 AM
  • OmairSh Evergrey takes a while and certain mood to get into, but they're a very underrated band. Definitely worth getting into. Let me know when you want to check them out and I'll recommend an album. Oh well, there must be a lot of work for you to do now with the music libraries. I guess you might rediscover music that you hadn't listened to for a while and jam it again.
    August 30 11:29 PM
  • OmairSh I heard a few maudlin songs a while back. Been meaning to check them out properly, but haven't been in that mood lately. I got back from an Evergrey gig, and it was KICKASS!
    August 30 03:40 AM
  • OmairSh Votum albums!! Might be released early 2016 though :-/
    August 27 03:41 PM
  • OmairSh I think their debut was the most KC oriented, and their other albums have moved away from that sound slightly, and towards a more psychedelic one. But they don't experiment enough imo. Still a good band, and have cool albums. I re-listened to old Anekdoten albums because you mentioned them. Had been a while.
    August 24 11:07 PM
  • OmairSh Yo. Yeah they're aight, got a heavy KC influence and a good atmosphere. But their albums sound pretty similar, that's why I haven't checked their latest one out.
    August 19 01:39 PM
  • Mongi123 Nice dude, all good man post rock takes some time for people to get into or appreciate sometimes. Glad you tried them. Godspeed is a lot to take in for some. Be sure to not abandon sigur ros hammock and the older recs I gave.

    August 10 07:26 PM
  • Friday13th #1 suggestion is Krautrock though. Like prog but more based on avant-garde classical, minimalism and electronics. Huge diversity. Check Kraftwerk, Can, Neu!, Popol Vuh, Faust, and Tangerine Dream for starters.
    August 10 03:17 PM
  • Friday13th sorry 'bout that long link lol! #3 is jazz fusion. Just start with Mahavishnu Orchestra and go from there if you dig it.
    August 10 03:10 PM
  • Friday13th 2. late 60s Psychedelic rock - the birth of prog and metal can be found here! I see you have late Beatles so you're getting there. Check big bands like The Doors and Jimi Hendrix, but there's plenty of obscure stuff that also rules. Don't forget rym charts too. Example:
    August 10 03:09 PM
  • Friday13th Prog is my big pie piece too, Mythodea. There's quite a bit I listen to that isn't prog, but looking at your ratings here's my top suggestions.
    August 10 03:06 PM
  • Mongi123 No problem dude enjoy
    August 10 09:21 AM
  • Mongi123 But my favorites of all time are Laughing Stock, Hex, Lift Your Skinny Fists by Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Kenotic by Hammock, Solace by Jakob and ( ) by Sigur Ros. Have fun with all these haha
    August 10 09:13 AM
  • Mongi123 Some essential older ones are Laughing Stock by Talk Talk, Hex by Bark Psychosis and F#A# by Godspeed You! Black Emperor
    August 10 09:12 AM
  • Mongi123 So to start with some easy ones you could try out The World Is Not A Dead Place by Explosions In The Sky, All Is Violent All Is Bright by God Is An Astronaut or Hymn To The Immortal Wind by Mono.

    July 22 01:08 AM
  • OmairSh Yo, yeah I saw the trailer a few days ago. Typical mellow Riverside, and it was pleasant. Oddly enough the Night session sounded less mellow than this day session snippet does. I really like the video. And there's a youtube clip of the trailer which you can add to the news article instead of the website link.
    July 21 10:38 PM
  • Palatial Haha, yeah I hear you. I do use this site a lot, but I just don't post as much. Do you have a
    July 18 02:23 PM
  • Palatial Thank you. Yeah, I come on and post a list here and there, but for the most part I can't stand how everyone on this site thinks they are a music expert.
    July 15 08:16 PM
  • OmairSh I think it's a fun song (which has me a bit worried because songs I like instantly normally grow off quickly), but I'm still holding my excitement and expectations of the album. The album seems like it might be on the positive side, which doesn't have to be a bad thing. I'm hoping they have explored new directions though. We'll find out in around 6 weeks. Yeah I'm interested in the Day session as well, the night sessions are enjoyable and refreshing
    July 13 12:11 AM
  • OmairSh So this is pretty damn good (sucks that the production is so compressed) I LOVE that Piotr's influence is much more significant here, very very tasteful melodies and tones
    July 10 01:44 PM
  • Palatial Nice music taste, bro!
    June 28 03:02 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah the congregation's definitely a grower. It's probably the weakest out of their 4 albums, but it's still pretty good. There are some great choruses. Duuuuude, if you get a chance to see them live, DO IT. Just a reminder of why you should go,
    June 28 02:01 PM
  • OmairSh Nice, good luck with the grades. That's always a stressful time :-P. Yeah I guess you're right, I'm not going to let an album cover ruin the album. Actually most Riverside album covers are underwhelming compared to the music imo. And funnily ADHD's cover is my favourite :-P. I'm hopefully about the album, the recording snippets they've shared so far have been pretty good. "Only" 2 months till we find out -_-
    June 28 01:53 PM
  • OmairSh Yo Myth how was the exam? I'm doing well, pretty much business as usual at my end. I was underwhelmed by the Riverside album cover dude. I mean it has cool elements, but it's a bit too fuzzy and it just seems, plain I guess. Hopefully the music is good though. It'll be a 3.5 at least I'm sure.

    June 24 12:48 PM
  • OmairSh Yo Myth, what's been up? Did you check the new Riverside album cover?
    June 23 03:41 PM
  • OmairSh Another chilled out album is Carbon Based Lifeform's Interloper. Very very relaxing
    May 30 10:22 PM
  • OmairSh Spock's Beard can be theatrical at times for sure. The older albums were mainly composed by Neal Morse and you can hear his style all over them. He left after Snow and the band changed a little bit. The SB album I'd recommend is either Octane or X. They don't copy prog legends as much on those two, especially Octane imo.
    May 30 07:30 PM
  • OmairSh Right now off the top of my head I highly recommend The Fountain OST. It's relaxing when you're in that darker mood, just an incredible journey. A must listen. Other than that there's Ludovico Einaudi's Divenire album that's a superb piano album with some orchestral instruments. That one's definitely relaxing.,
    May 30 06:02 PM
  • OmairSh And the Congregation's a major grower. It's a solid 4 for me now, and it's still growing. I love this ****ing band.
    May 29 12:27 AM
  • OmairSh Just heard Deux Ex Machina from Pure Reason Revolution's second album, and I have to say, I'm really digging the groovy electronic vibe. Very cool. And the title track is stunning. Some fantastic vocal harmonies. Looks like I'm going to have to check these guys out. Thanks for the rec.
    May 26 07:41 PM
  • OmairSh Haven't heard Pure Reason Revolution, but 4 vocalists? Dam there must be some crazy harmonies! I'll try and check them out. You need to listen to Big Wreck's latest album Ghosts. Fantastic melodic hard rock with a lot of rich flavours to their music.
    May 26 06:13 PM
  • OmairSh Symphony X is quality prog metal with neoclassical elements. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I discovered them at pretty much the same time as DT, POS, etc. so it's an important band for me. It's okay if you don't know Spock's Beard, they're a very cool band, but at times they seem to replicate the prog legends too often. Enigma is a legendary electronic/ambient project, you have definitely heard a song or two. Oh yeah Votum! They often their fb page every now and then. Currently in the studio m/
    May 26 06:03 PM
  • OmairSh Leprous AMA!
    May 26 04:14 PM
  • OmairSh And dam dude there are so many releases coming this year. Enigma, Spocks beard, Symphony X (****ING FINALLY), obviously Riverside, and there are a few others I'm forgetting. Going to be a good year hopefully
    May 26 02:32 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah man its been a while. " the new Leprous album needs time" pretty much said for every album :-P. The album is different. It's probably their weakest, but it's still pretty good. I had to forget about the past albums and appreciate this as a completely separate album. Plus I had to walk away from it for a while and re-listen just to digest it better. Not much has changed at my end otherwise, you tell, what's been up?
    May 26 02:25 PM
  • OmairSh I think your soundoff represents my feelings about The Congregation. I'm still giving it time. It has some pretty damn cool bits as expected but overall it feels reserved. Einar definitely wanted a more conventional song oriented approach. I want to review it, but I'm not sure if I should be the first since my rating is 3.5 at the moment, and I don't want new people to be turned off by the album and band. First world problems :-P

  • Torontonian Nice!
    May 15 05:11 PM
  • Torontonian Haha good ole Freud! How'd the exam go BTW?

    May 7 06:35 PM
  • Torontonian Nice, best of luck. I'm currently finishing my last month of junior year(grade 11)in high school. Pretty average I guess he he.
    May 6 01:31 PM
  • Torontonian sweet dude appreciate the rec! best of luck in da college, i'm sure you'll do great! What are you studying? also, have you heard new anekdoten? its pretty good.
    May 4 06:26 PM

    May 4 03:48 PM
  • Torontonian also, here's a rec for you btw in case you're interested. One of the best psych albums i've ever heard.
    April 28 04:06 PM
  • Torontonian sup myth!havent seen u around much... Hope things are good!
    April 28 04:06 PM
  • OmairSh I like the way you advertised the album :-D. I've actually had the intention of listening to that album for a while but never got around to it. I'll let you know what I think when I listen to it.
    April 19 10:58 PM
  • OmairSh Yo Myth submit the experimental tag for Leprous. It's been removed for some reason and it's really bugging me!!
    April 10 11:12 PM
  • OmairSh Might check Soen out, but I'll have to get in the mood for that kind of music. Yeah I live in Canada now, moved a year and a half ago.
    March 24 06:45 PM
  • OmairSh I saw a few videos of Soen and didn't feel too excited about them. Obviously I checked them out because of Lopez. Yeah I do, uh oh you found my account! :-O
    March 21 11:06 PM
  • OmairSh Votum's album doesn't have a release date. Will probably be near the end of the year. They have snippets from their demos on their soundcloud. Seems like they're getting heavier. Hopefully they progress their sound. The previous album is also pretty good. More mellow and melodic. About Riverside's cover art, interesting colour choices, I'm thinking more of grey and dark blue (imagining it to be darker and not so colourful). All their modern pictures are in black and white as well!
    March 20 11:37 PM
  • OmairSh Riverside will be at least a 3.5, and yeah I agree I want them to progress their sound. I really hope they have some good guest contributions. I would love a sitar or a violin here and there! Steps in the gloom is gorgeous agreed. I don't know if you'll like the album as much as I did. I just fell in love with hard rock edge to Votum's brand of prog. It sounded so fresh and the guitar playing, tones and riffs are stunning. It's a very organic and natural album, rare in modern prog.
    March 20 11:32 PM
  • OmairSh My expectations have been lowered for Riverside because of their change of direction. I don't mind losing the hard rock influences for an album or two, but whatever they do hopefully they keep it interesting. I have expectations from them as a band in general. September is way too ****ing far.
    March 19 04:50 PM
  • OmairSh It's not a bad album, but I guess it doesn't have as many refreshing elements as I was hoping for. The poppy stuff I like (love the t/t), the more Raven-y stuff is just more of the same. But of course there are some great elements on offer. I wish perfect life was longer. Indeed a lot of albums to look forward to, but the release dates are SO FAR AWAY!! Leprous was working on a video, man I hope they release it in a couple of weeks. I NEED more Leprous in my life.
    March 18 11:50 PM
  • OmairSh On the first listen, at Ancestral, it's okay but not as refreshing as I'd hoped for. Obviously give it a lot of listens to let it sink in
    March 2 08:30 PM

  • Torontonian sup myth, check my jazz list dude i'm sure theres something on it that u'd be interested in
    February 22 11:11 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah his voice is definitely an acquired taste. The instrumentation is brilliant though. They're hopefully releasing a new album this year, and have a new vocalist. But I'm a little worried since his live performances haven't been that great. Anyway time will tell. And yeah, the recs just don't stop coming :-P.
    February 21 10:59 PM
  • OmairSh I know that you're aware of SW's electronic experimentation but I still mentioned it, and I don't know why haha. I feel the same, I think since the track was unexpected I was pleasantly surprised by it. He says he has a few electronic elements on the album which should be good. I've heard of Saor but haven't checked them out, I'll listen when in the right mood, thanks for the rec. What did you think of Votum?
    February 20 07:03 PM
  • OmairSh He's delved into electronic territory before, I guess I was expecting a generic cheesy pop song as opposed to what the song actually was, and that caught me off guard. I think the video helps as well. I don't mind pop if it's done well. My expectations from the album have increased slightly. Also the girl in red looks absolutely stunning in some shots. Arab women, what do you expect? At times I feel the music hasn't done the video justice :-P.
    February 20 12:31 PM
  • OmairSh Okay I heard SW's song, it's actually different from what I expected, in a good way. I was expecting a generic SW track, but I like that it's electronic and the narration is pretty good. I want more electronic and twisted effects on the new album. The video has some cool colours and shots as well.

    February 18 12:19 PM
  • Mongi123 Just started my write up for Known/Learned. I got some solid stuff going here and I'm gonna say a lot about the length haha
    February 18 11:45 AM

  • Titan ahhhh, i just feel like his well ran dry. i'm not crazy about the direction he's been going in.
    February 11 01:29 PM
  • OmairSh I guess you're right, time does fly. But hey, an album release isn't like other days where the fun is over at the end of the night. You still have the album the listen to for the rest of your life :-D. Well I'm happy that there are a number of anticipated releases this year, can't complain about that.
    February 11 11:03 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah SW does manage to produce good work, but I think he's reaching a point where the music just isn't refreshing, and that's what I'm expecting from the new album. I'm glad Riverside are experimenting, but I hope they don't stray too far from their rock roots. I'm all up for adding new elements and changing things up though. All the albums are coming out so damn late!
    February 10 04:37 PM
  • danielcardoso Yes, it is.
    February 10 04:28 PM
  • danielcardoso Your soundoff for Return To Forever is spot on, man ;)
    February 10 03:32 PM
  • Titan and i absolutely love Crazy Nights ^
    February 10 08:00 AM
  • Titan 38 dude
    February 10 07:55 AM
  • OmairSh Yeah I understand, didn't mean to worry you, but I really appreciate the concern my sputbro :-). I have no expectations for DT's release, and some for SW's. I'm anxious about Riverside's because they're moving away from hard rock. Don't know what to expect, so I'm lowering my anticipation a little to avoid disappointment. Leprous is what I'm waiting for the most!!
    February 9 12:28 PM
  • OmairSh Haha my baaad homie. I'm flattered, didn't know you were so concerned. Just been busy man, and I'll be on here less often as a result. Haven't seen the video but I'll check it out. Riverside album, Leprous album, Votum album, this year is looking good. Not really excited about SW's album, and it looks like DT is going back to the studio to release another mediocre album.
    February 8 05:36 PM
  • OmairSh Hello, is there anybody out there?
    February 8 04:18 PM
  • Titan Don't ever try to force a band or sound because many others like it, your brain and your ears are going to like what they like. I bet those Radiohead fans don't care for The Curse Of Feanor either, go figure!
    February 8 03:34 PM
  • Titan We're rockers dude!

    January 12 09:43 AM
  • Friday13th Yeah, thanks dude. Ozric was rec'd to me for my psych contest. Join next time! I try to do it every once in a while but not too frequently to keep it special/ I can't help but notice the Greek. Are you from Greece?
    January 11 06:03 PM
  • Torontonian Sweet! Its Cecile Mclorin Salvant-Womanchild. Its jazz with vocals. Its just a bunch of cover sung by her but her voice speaks to me a lot and the musicianship is also amazing. Here is a link of one of her songs, unfortunately i couldn't find one for the full album. But ya, hopefullly you dig!
    January 4 02:06 PM
  • Torontonian Thanks man! This year has definetly started out excellent for me. Just listened to one of the best albums i've ever heard and been enjoying the holidays with my family immensely. Lets hope the rest of the year follows that trend! Anyway, you too have my best wishes man!!!!

    December 20 06:51 PM
  • Torontonian hey, still enjoying Rishloo. Vocalist has a maynard james-keenan vibe. check this man, essential Canterbury prog.
    December 16 10:46 PM
  • Gyromania thanks for your kind words, my friend. it's great to have support from people like you =] - oh, and to answer your question, i think the donations are through paypal, or credit cards as well are welcomed. i can't believe all the support i've had already
    November 29 12:35 AM
  • danielcardoso Hey man, nice review you've got for Hour I. It's nice to see some Scorpions showing up on Sputnik's front page. I've got a review up for Slappy, by Green Day. Give it a read if you have time. Cheers man.
    November 22 12:02 PM
  • OmairSh Time to indulge
    November 21 05:09 PM
  • Hornblower You're right. A word was edited out somehow. Sorry about that.
    November 21 09:35 AM
  • Gameofmetal Thanks. Someone told me the Gazpacho one but I was unsure on the second. I'm curious so I'll try to check those out.
    November 20 09:38 AM
  • Torontonian !!! :)
    November 19 08:58 PM
  • Torontonian i'm checking rishloo atm! i'm actually really enjoying it. i'm just sampling atm but i will inevitably listen to eidolon( only one on spotify) soon. I can see why you like the vocals so much.
    November 19 08:57 PM
  • Torontonian alright!! I will check as soon as i get home. Feel like i'm in for a ride!
    November 19 10:24 AM
  • Torontonian Ya, i love daniel's voice! i haven't heard of the other two though! i might check if you think i'd enjoy. and ya if you liked that song i highly recommend you try marillion's album "brave", which is one of my favorites ever.
    November 19 10:04 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot thanks man! I think I'll be reviewing the new Faust album when it drops, which is probably more up your alley. cheers
    November 18 06:46 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sup man. I remember you commenting on my Floral review a while back, and was wondering if you could share a thought on my latest review if you have a moment. no big deal either way though
    November 18 06:25 PM
  • dannyboy89 I see you gave DP's Burn a 4, that band seriously needs more ratings. In fact, I see you've already rated most of their essentials. IMO all their albums up to CTTB are worth hearing, but that's just my opinion. Made in Japan is also essential too, since it captures the band in their prime. Atm it's the only live album I have rated btw.
    November 16 06:55 PM
  • Torontonian Hey man! check this song. i actually think he's my favorite vocalist.
    November 15 12:27 PM
  • OmairSh Oh yeah Disco Queen is superb. I mean Scarsick has some really great elements like the beautiful choruses of Spitfall and Idiocracy, but it also has some pretty terrible moments as well. Have a good weekend man.
    November 13 06:23 PM
  • OmairSh Glad you enjoy the posts, and I'm flattered :-). Yeah I guess you're right, Daniel knows what he's doing. Obviously I have to trust him. Whatever the case, I'll be happy if they release any new material as long as its better than Scarsick. I would love it if they incorporated jazz into the music, that would be groovay. Plus it's not like Sweden's water is any worse, all these Scandinavian countries are giving birth to ridiculous amounts of talent
    November 13 02:30 AM
  • OmairSh About POS (fvcking hell 3 posts). It's cool that Daniel is feeling closer to the best era of the band, but personally (as much as I love that era) I was hoping that he'd take the sound further before returning to the band's roots. Whatever the case it should BE (ha!) the best album since BE. Now only if they can release it by late next year or early 2016 *fingers crossed.
    November 12 05:31 AM
  • OmairSh I just realised I described Major Parkison the exact same way you described Evergrey, haha. Evergrey is coo stuff. SDT and ISOT are more progressive and dark in nature. SDT's my favourite but ISOT is the band's most critically acclaimed work. RD and TIC are more riff heavy and chug oriented. TIC got the band more awareness and is also a fan favourite. I recommend ISOT first, followed by TIC if you're still interested. That way you get a taste of both sides of the band.
    November 12 05:27 AM
  • OmairSh I heard one track from Major Parkinson's last album and it was interesting to say the least. It makes sense that they are Norwegian, don't know what's in the water there but the creativity levels are high. The whole BM scene, Enslaved, Shining, Leprous, and the list goes on.
    November 12 05:24 AM
  • OmairSh Daniel G interview
    November 12 01:38 AM
  • OmairSh I don't want to be that annoying person that throws in recs often but check this out,
    November 11 08:06 PM
  • dannyboy89 Interesting that you have Whitesnake and Bon Jovi in your ratings. I don't jam either band much these days, but they have their moments.
    November 11 06:30 PM
  • dannyboy89 No worries dude, everyone's entitled to their tastes. What are your opinions on thrash metal?
    November 11 06:19 PM
  • OmairSh It'll take me a while to digest the album, but it seems cool so far. Yeah dude it would be the correct decision to listen to Anathema properly. Their earliest stuff was doom metal before they moved to more atmospheric/alternative rock. And now they're all about the ethereal atmosphere. Most of their albums have a dark tone to them. It's from WHBWH where they actually sound more positive, since they are happier people now :-P.
    November 11 06:06 PM
  • OmairSh Also Indukti's pretty cool. On the 4th track currently, didn't realise it was an instrumental band minus Duda's vocals obviously
    November 11 05:23 PM
  • OmairSh Well I am a diehard fan, but I won't chastise you for the 3.5 since that's what I gave it as well :-P. Dude you love Riverside for its emotion and passion, then you have to check Anathema out. They are one of the masters of emotion. They also change their style almost every album so I don't know an appropriate album but I think WHBWH is a safe bet. Judgement is normally people's favourite though.
    November 11 05:22 PM
  • OmairSh Dude have you listened to Anathema properly?
    November 11 03:46 PM
  • dannyboy89 Alrighty. I look forward to seeing those ratings.
    November 11 03:41 PM

  • LambsBread hi im a big Pink Floyd fan that is really ignorant about the rest of the genre, your album ratings look wise to me, could you give me an album REC like Pink Floyd?
    November 9 03:20 AM
  • OmairSh I get really annoyed when people make fun/insult of others for whatever reason (so pretty much 90% of people's internet activity), and that's the only time I mock anyone. But obviously I've gotten used to it for the most part, I pretty much have to. And I'm relaxed :-), I actually had the feeling you might have taken my comment the wrong way so I thought I'd check.
    November 2 10:52 AM
  • OmairSh My sarcastic mockery of abbreviations in the POS news article wasn't directed at you btw
    November 1 11:05 PM
  • Hurricanslash I wish you a good evening as well. Steaming is good, as long as you don't go into dictator-levels, but I guess you know that. Have a nice weekend as well.
    October 31 02:18 PM
  • Hurricanslash Man, it's okay. Stupid trolls be stupid trolls. Also, with art, I think sometimes we have to differentiate between functional art and art with "integrity". I mean, look at Baile Funk. It's one of the most hideous genres on this planet, sometimes harder to listen to than Noise, but I will never question its functionality. Or, Big Freedia for that matter.
    October 31 02:02 PM
  • OmairSh Incredible live band(Einar's high pitched vocals suffered during his live performance for a year or 2, but from recent footage it seems he's improving again). Look at that headbanging m/, Saw them live a month ago, apart from some mixing issues, it was brilliant
