  • Hawks I'll have to look into it bro, never heard of them before.
    September 25 12:11 PM
  • minty901 thats so cool. the new track is really great but not sure if it blows their previous album out the water or anything. its a lot more orchestral which is really cool. yeah im pretty excited about this band now.
    September 24 03:54 PM
  • minty901 I checked out So Hideous's first full-length and it's so my kind of thing I love it. It's what I wished for Deafheaven's Sunbather to sound like. Thanks again.
    September 24 09:21 AM
  • minty901 oh man that song was awesome. like an angrier version of for my parents. how did you find out about them?
    September 24 04:09 AM
  • TalonsOfFire i can respect that :)
    September 23 03:36 PM
  • TalonsOfFire it's interesting that you freely admit that you have poor taste, though i'm assuming as a result of all the users reactions as ive seen all over the site, which is why i asked
    September 23 03:11 PM
  • TalonsOfFire oh ok
    September 23 03:02 PM
  • TalonsOfFire so what's the deal with your ratings
    September 23 02:17 PM
  • minty901 the dissonant guitar melody right at the end of the title track is a stroke of genius. its a really good song but im struggling to get excited over the album as a whole. probably just arcs of command and the title track that im ever gonna be compelled to go back to. i know you dont agree, but i finally got round to checking out envy's latest album and for me that blows caspians album out of the water. also with the dear hunter coming out recently... i feel ive got better stuff to distract me.
    September 19 06:37 PM
  • minty901 also there is way too much modulation on so many of the guitar melodies. makes me feel sea sick. and some of the melodies just dont repeat in a way that is satisfying to me. but i love the heaviness of some of the tracks and i do think it has some of their most interesting ideas in it. the last track is excellent, especially the off-key lead guitar near the end that sounds so heartbreaking. i need more time with it because its not grabbing me. have you listened to it yet? (its streaming online)
    September 17 02:08 PM
  • minty901 re: the caspian album. oh man i dont know. intellectually there is a lot to like about it. its experimental (for them) and tries some cool things. but some things fall flat for me. the downtempo song with vocals does nothing to me. the penultimate track is too dry and nothingy. but i totally get what theyre going for. i like these little "experiments" of like really rough acoustics mixed in with an ambient album and stuff like that. theyre great ideas executed in kind of a "meh" way for me.
    September 17 02:05 PM
  • bach had no idea you were ethereal shroud. decided to check it out and it slaps hella hard man. seriously one of my favorites from this year.
    September 17 01:44 AM
  • Spag Aaaaaah. I need to revisit TLTS. I listened FTM album last night and I dig it. Gonna take time to digest it more now. I only have 3 more albums I'm waiting on luckily, Thy Catafalque, Mithras and Borknagar. This is the best year of music since 2011 for me. Really surprised with a lot of great albums honestly :]
    September 12 05:02 PM
  • Spag It just leaked today actually lol. I was checking getmetal daily until it did! I'm gonna listen to it later at night, I'm certain it'll be a 4 or more for me.
    September 11 10:57 PM
  • Spag Ahhh sweet, I have been loving these guys lately. Same goes for My Dying Bride, "A Map of all our Failures" is becoming an all time favorite and I'm about to listen to Feel the Misery in a bit. Hoping for the best because I loved "And My Father Left Forever". ;]
    September 11 10:06 PM
  • Spag Is it bad that The Light In The Weed made me all teary eyed? That outro...
    September 11 09:12 PM
  • StarlessCore aight, wht abt some straight kvlt then thats good too

    September 4 11:00 AM
  • Jacquibim Do you still have the DR10 version of TFP, I know you say it doesn't sound much better but I'm still morbidly curious.
    August 13 01:05 AM

  • PortalofPerfection Are you kidding? Challenge - Flight is SOTY. Best crescendo/climax I've ever heard.
    July 24 12:12 AM
  • PortalofPerfection I'm looking forward to any new stuff from you.So I saw your soundoff for We Lost the Sea, did you like it?
    July 22 11:24 PM
  • PortalofPerfection What's your next project?
    July 10 01:09 AM
  • Hawks Hahahaha I know bro I really need to.
    July 4 06:18 PM
  • Hawks Holy s*** you 3.5'd the new COF I'm so proud.
    July 4 05:11 PM
  • PortalofPerfection K if you say so :pHaven't seen you review in a while, got anything cooking?
    July 2 09:19 PM
  • PortalofPerfection And my judgement of your taste fails again lol. C'mon it's like...Saor Caladan Brood how do you not...lol I give up :p
    July 1 07:28 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Dood your CD is so pretty :D :D :DBtw, you gotta check this out. Like right now. I may not understand your taste but I can guaran-****ing-tee you will love this. m/m/m/https://sojournermetal.bandcamp.com/releases
    July 1 01:49 AM
  • Spag Oh that's awesome, their new one should easily be in my top 10 then : ) I'm very very happy with 2015 so far music wise, can't say the same for 2014 sadly.
    June 25 02:36 PM
  • Spag Yes! They grew on me pretty fast and I'm glad they did as I'm normally not big on death metal. :) I still need to check out their first album and if I have heard right I THINK they'll have a new album this year.
    June 25 12:49 PM
    June 25 07:04 AM
  • Gameofmetal ooooooh that Shape of Despair 5 huh? Got that s*** bookmarked for later, think it'll be pretty sweet now.
    June 9 05:18 PM
  • joitp Just saw you 5'd the new Shape of Despair... mmm knowing your legendary strict ratings I really have to check it out!
    June 8 02:55 PM
  • AlphaBetaFoxface Dude! Just found out about Ethereal Shroud! They Became the Falling Ash is absolutely banging! Keep it up!
    June 3 01:00 AM
  • Spag Haha, I'm still deciding my favorite track on here. I'm really fond of tracks like Game Over, Pale, Crashland, Angst etc. This album was something I've been waiting for since 2011 and I'm very satisfied with the way it came out. The production doesn't even bother me anymore either (wasn't too fond of the drum sound at first but now it's ok for me).
    May 7 06:35 PM
  • Spag Whoa! Glad you like the Arcturus album man. I didn't think you quite dig it. I'm actually pretty relieved lol.
    May 6 10:20 PM
  • Gameofmetal Request sent. Sorry I don't look as black metal as you hehe
    May 5 08:59 PM
  • VisionsFromTheDarkSide I had no idea that They Became the Falling Ash was a user-made album, such is its quality. Seriously good job man, probably my favourite release of 2015 so far!
    May 2 04:32 PM
  • Spag Ahh I see. Hopefully so then! Personally, there's no way in hell I won't love this album lol. Same goes for the Arcturus for me. :)
    May 2 03:04 AM
  • Spag https://soundcloud.com/officialinsideoutmusic/leprous-rewind/s-F8zxhHere's the new Leprous song dude! (Much better than the first one they released imo) :)
    May 2 02:06 AM
  • Wizard That Emuul album....holy s*** that's some good stuff to vibe to.
    April 29 09:37 PM
  • PortalofPerfection yus. keep me posted.
    April 29 12:20 AM
  • PortalofPerfection Seriously though, let me know when you have physical merc available cause I want some.
    April 29 12:17 AM
  • PortalofPerfection Speaking of passionate, don't know why I've never thought to rec you this before but I think there's a decent chance you will really like this. Wrote the review a while back, not terribly good, but the album sure is. Give it a shot, I think it's either gonna sound ridiculous or you're gonna love it.http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/61162/Darkflight-Closure/
    April 29 12:08 AM
  • PortalofPerfection Just saw the comment you posted about the equipment you used for falling ash. lol wtf proof you don't need money to move souls.
    April 28 11:58 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Dude I didn't know Ethereal Shroud was you! ****ing amazing man, I'm blown away
    April 28 12:32 AM
  • Wizard And lower your score for new Drudkh. It's so bad that I have nothing to say about it.
    April 25 09:23 PM
  • Wizard Your dig is one of the most underrated death/ doom bands in existence.
    April 25 09:23 PM
  • Hawks Sweet I'll look into it tonight dude.
    April 15 03:55 PM
  • Hawks Don't got a computer bro. Can't afford one at the moment haha.
    April 15 02:59 PM
  • Hawks I know dude it's hard to do on my phone, I have to use Spotify. :[
    April 15 02:22 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot there's a new Sulphur Aeon alb out in case you're curious (saw you 4d their last)
    April 5 02:32 AM
  • Ignimbrite Whoa, awesome. When do you think it's gonna drop?
    March 30 08:18 PM
  • Spag Crazy thing is, there's 12 tracks on The Congregation and it might clock near around 70 minutes. I promised myself I wouldn't listen to a single track until I got the cd in the mail lol.
    March 30 06:59 PM
  • Spag Noctussssss new Leprous out in late May / early June! You stoked? :o
    March 30 06:16 AM
  • Ignimbrite I meant every word, man. It's a seriously awesome piece of music.
    March 29 10:36 PM
  • joitp Your new album has become the soundtrack of most of my mountain walks, what a fantastic piece of music you've created! Now I'm only dreaming of a vinyl release...
    March 22 04:51 AM

  • ExplosiveOranges Holy ****, dude, great job on the new Ethereal Shroud album.
    March 15 11:52 AM
  • cryptside I'm really glad you like the review, it's always a little scarier when you know the person that created the music is reading what you're writing haha.
    March 14 07:58 PM
  • cryptside Posted. :]
    March 14 04:51 PM
  • cryptside My review is shaping to be one of my one-paragraphers; I hope you don't mind. I just cut a lot of stuff where I was repeating myself over and over.
    March 14 03:06 PM
  • cryptside Hey man, got some thoughts written down on the album. Will be up on Saturday at the latest. :)
    March 13 12:49 AM
  • Hawks Gonna jam when I'm done with the new Leviathan. m/
    March 12 09:04 PM
  • Hawks I just read a soundoff for it actually. I'll check it out bud.
    March 12 07:08 PM
  • Atari man, echoes in the snow is incredible. really nice job on the new album!
    March 11 06:02 PM
  • cryptside I would love to review it, man! Give me a few days to process my thoughts and it will be up. It's really great stuff, one of my favorites from this year.
    March 11 01:25 PM
  • elcrawfodor Hey man, just wanted to say that I checked out your new album and bought it before I was even finished with the first stream, incredible stuff. Will definitely couple that album with some midnight walks soon
    March 8 03:46 PM
  • Gameofmetal That's pretty interesting. Glad it worked out after all.
    March 6 10:42 AM
  • Gameofmetal 4 days vs. 8 years on the next one right? How exactly did that work out?
    March 6 10:36 AM
  • Gameofmetal Np ;) I'll check out your first record soon enough.
    March 6 10:32 AM
  • Gameofmetal Just finished listening to your new album, sweet stuff man. Really nice job. Actually I'm of half a mind to review it if there's no one already planning to do so.
    March 6 10:14 AM
  • Wizard Can you help me find a new link to the new Enslaved album? Not a stream, rar please.
    March 4 07:07 AM
  • AaronIsCrunchy Aw damn, seen you gave the new A Forest of Stars album a 2.0 :/ Waiting on my copy to arrive before listening, is it that disappointing?
    March 2 01:01 PM
  • osmark86 well I'll be damned. new Ethereal Shroud ey? gotta get on that.
    March 1 12:52 PM
  • Wizard You should be proud you did an album of that calibre by yourself. I simply love those almost-symphonic moments when the black metal just comes screaming out of the blue from the quieter sections. Still gonna give your first album a listen ; ).
    February 27 01:46 PM

    February 24 10:31 AM
  • Wizard I want to review it so badly but once again, time is against me.And check out "Massive Conspiracy Against All Man", now that's Wrest's best work.
    February 23 08:15 PM
  • Wizard And I ****ing love it hahaha. I got really baked and put it on last night....love spacing out to atmospheric bm. Also, I've had a promo for new Leviathan and it rules pretty hard.
    February 23 08:12 PM
  • Wizard Why did it mean so much to you? Is it your band?
    February 23 08:06 PM
  • emester Sweet. Actually checked and managed to find a leak however. Dont really feel that bad bout it since im planning on buying this on cd or eventually wax
    February 22 02:28 PM
  • emester New Leviathan leaked? How is it?
    February 22 02:14 PM
  • Crysis ooooo yeah i definitely will
    February 22 12:25 PM
  • Bombastus Yo, bro, could you rec me some doom? I'm currently listening to Shape of Despair and MDB a lot. Contrasting elements - piano, violin, synths - are mandatory.
    February 2 07:18 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Whoa bro, sounds really good. I love that clean drop too and the progressions taken from there. I really wanna listen to it again through a good stereo system.
    February 2 01:46 PM
  • thacoconut94 Okay man cheers
    January 18 08:31 AM
  • thacoconut94 Your dig, would you say it sways more towards death or black? Looking for something to spin but with blackened death I'm fussy cause I much prefer the pair separate for more clarity
    January 17 11:17 AM
  • pedro70512 awyes. this looks like fun. do we /really/ have to wait four months? ughh
    January 6 01:09 AM
  • pedro70512 Hey Noctus. You gotten a chance to listen to the whole album yet?
    January 5 08:10 AM
  • CaptainDooRight I wouldn't worry about it, I'm just glad ur making music, good music, keep up the great work ur very talented
    December 29 10:09 PM
  • CaptainDooRight sounds pretty solid, not a fan of the drum tone but i can look past it
    December 29 12:08 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Thanks Joe, will def check
    December 29 02:55 AM
  • pedro70512 Noctus I need your name to credit you on the album broseph
    December 12 07:49 AM
  • johnnydeking29 Oh, it was an album of rerecordings? Which albums had the originals?
    November 20 07:48 PM
  • johnnydeking29 Hey dude, just discovered Kauan through their new album; could you explain what you found average about, and what you like about their past work?
    November 20 11:22 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man, giving you a heads up that I posted that Grouper review since you asked
    October 28 11:15 AM
  • CaptainDooRight yeah man def enjoyed the music aspect quite a bit, I look forward to your future works and I feel privileged to be able to associate with you
    October 27 11:37 AM
  • CaptainDooRight def enjoying the ethereal shroud album but what's really holding me back in the drums, its not that they're programmed but it was the chosen compositions for them, they just feel out of place and subtracting from the music, which is really good. It's taking me a while to digest because of that. I'm trying though. I worked out to it a few days ago as well.
    October 23 02:12 PM
  • BigPleb cheers buddy :]
    October 21 10:12 AM
  • BigPleb Thanks a lot! Never been a huge BM advocate but need to give the genre a chance tbh.
    October 21 10:09 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Yeah, I just came off an awful writer's block, so I do feel like it turned out a little rough around the edges. Rest assured, though, I aim to cut down on the amount of irrelevant content with my intros in my next review and so on.
    October 19 09:46 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot Gotcha, thanks man. Yeah I could whittle things down a bit. I've got a review for the new Grouper album in the works, and I'll try and adjust it a bit based off what you said.
    October 19 07:48 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Hey man, just saw your comment on my Winterfylleth review. You were pretty right about the whole filler intro, and I'll be sure to avoid doing that in the future. Thanks for all the feedback.
    October 19 07:05 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot cheers. I guess if you're particularly bored in the next little while, maybe scope out a handful of my more recent revs and shout box me any shortcomings you might notice in my writing? Just general stuff, I don't need an in depth proofread or anything. Any help is appreciated man, and I'm always willing to improve. *No rush* whatsoever though
    October 19 05:31 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey man, I've seen to offer criticisms on a few reviews and was wondering if I could get a bit of input if you have a moment
    October 19 05:13 PM
  • CaptainDooRight so let me ask you, why is it you're keeping your identity confidential with ES? do you not want people to know its you? just curious because I have no problem honoring that. I was thinking of putting it on one of my recommended albums list
    October 17 02:22 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Loving the Ethereal Shroud album! I'm thinking somewhere between 3.5-4.
    October 17 12:13 PM
  • ComeToDaddy hey Noct, just wondering if you were going to review Sines? I'd love to put one together, but you're Sputnik's resident Jakob fan so you definitely get first review dibs. I'll just archive it until you've posted yours if so (:
    October 15 04:42 PM
  • CaptainDooRight still digesting it, and how about that new Jakob!
    October 15 10:08 AM
  • CaptainDooRight im sure you had to be in 'the zone' to get that quality out, im still absorbing it which is a good thing
    October 2 04:42 PM
  • CaptainDooRight very well done! im proud of you!
    October 2 03:41 PM
  • CaptainDooRight is Ethereal Shroud a one man effort
    October 2 11:06 AM
  • CaptainDooRight thanks Noctus, the bandcamp link should be fine for me. But I'll def consider contributing. Great work man!
    October 1 04:24 PM
  • CaptainDooRight ';]' random, well that's a new face I haven't seen before lol. Well great job and I think I have it figured out now for the most part ;]. Gonna check the rest of the tracks on bandcamp and def looking forward to new material. Keep going hard bro!
    October 1 09:46 AM
  • osmark86 I've heard Woman is the Earth and I dig it. very "organic" stuff with plenty of feels. what did you think of it?
    October 1 03:51 AM
  • osmark86 sounds awesome man, excited for the release! what is your black metal project called? I want to check it out. working a bit on a doomy/bm release myself, but knowing me it'll take a long ass time before I'm near completion. baby steps, baby steps.
    October 1 03:51 AM
  • CaptainDooRight I listened to the song. It's amazing! But, you said guess who it is. Is it you? Maybe I'm a little confused.
    October 1 01:29 AM
  • Gmork89 Dude, did you really hear the new Blut Aus Nord and rate it a 2.5??I have high hopes :(
    September 30 12:02 AM
  • osmark86 mate I see you dig the new Woman is the Earth. got any similar recs? how's music creation going btw? will we be seeing a new Of Solitude and Solemn any time soon? ^^
    September 29 07:36 AM
  • CaptainDooRight Nice keep me posted on any releases you do! Can't wait to hear them!
    September 28 10:15 PM
  • CaptainDooRight And hey do you have any new material in the works. Really like your stuff
    September 27 03:08 PM
  • CaptainDooRight Awesome! I really appreciate that specific feedback. Those are some very useful pointers and I'll definitely take them all to heart and work on those. Yes, composing effective transitions is super hard but I'm really trying my best. I'll keep focusing on that. Thanks again bro!!

    September 15 02:26 AM
  • Artuma no worries dude
    September 15 02:25 AM
  • pedro70512 may as well if you're up for it. I've put enough work into this thing that it's worth asking you for a second take :]
    September 15 02:24 AM
  • Artuma holy s*** this is great
    September 15 02:14 AM
  • pedro70512 it was a little fast so I slowed it down by 10% and lowered the pitch to get a darker tone. the emphasis on words like "mist" and "merely" was a little awkward too. if you'd like to do another take that would be fine...it's your voice, and real

    September 8 09:50 PM
  • minty901 to be honest i don't even know, not being much of a fan of theirs at all. they did play forever lost which i like from AIV,AIB. and suicide by star. but thats the only album i know so all the other songs were new to me. echoes was probably the best. i think they played a new song or two. the lead guitarist/keyboardist was the nicest guy, he came down to the front while packing away and asked people what they enjoyed, and if they wanted any momentos.
    September 3 05:12 AM
  • minty901 just got back from arctangent festival. saw god is an astronaut and they were incredible. really rocked it. one of the best bands of the weekend honestly. thought you'd appreciate that.
    August 31 10:49 AM
  • osmark86 sweet! I use a UX1 but it's a bit of a bitch to get the tone to sound right and not buzzy enough. I'm sort of used to producing electronic stuff, but this is a whole new ballpark for me with guitars and distortion. I suppose that's how it is though, plug n play, waste the day away
    August 6 01:49 PM
  • osmark86 so I've never tried the whole bedroom metal shindig, but I'm sort of getting that creative spark to get and make a couple of songs. how do you record? do you use guitar impulses and that junz, or do you have any other tips? PS. listened to Of Solitude and Solemn again and it's solid stuff!

    July 7 11:39 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Yuuuus my pos is ready
    June 12 03:32 PM
  • PortalofPerfection What Atari said. Also, who are these tools giving it 2s and 2.5s. Nothing average about this. I could even see as low as a 3 if this sorta folky stuff really isn't your thing but the execution on this is just too tight to be anything less than good. I'm pretty sure you felt the same way about the Gris album from last year
    June 12 02:33 PM
  • Atari you should review the new saor
    June 11 01:25 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Well it's probably the most simplistic track but it seems to come at the perfect time to give you a break from listening through so many different layers for so long . Plus it's catchy! ? so when's the review coming??? ?
    June 9 03:49 PM
  • PortalofPerfection I actually feel like each track is better than the one that proceeds it, the album just gets better and better all the way to the end
    June 8 06:29 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Pillars is soooo goooood ?
    June 8 06:26 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Favorite track?
    June 7 11:50 PM
  • PortalofPerfection It was Roots for 5 or 6 listens (of Aura) but I'm going on 10 and now it's neck and neck. I think Aura will overtake it, the way each song progresses just blows my mind
    June 7 10:56 PM
  • PortalofPerfection Okay so I have to ask...Roots or Aura?
    June 7 12:30 PM
  • OmairSh Also I know the lyrics have been cringeworthy on the last album as well but "Love so strong, it hurts"? Come on Danny jeez.
    June 4 11:09 PM
  • OmairSh The electronic elements aren't cool like on The storm before the calm, they're pretty generic and boring. They actually ruin the t/t and the other tracks. I can't stand programmed drums as opposed to real drums in a band setting. Anyway since we did expect them to play it safe I can't say I'm too disappointed, but I still feel it could have been better. Also Vinny does a near perfect impersonation of the Sigur Ros vocalist on the last song. Well there's my rant.
    June 4 10:47 PM
  • OmairSh Well I've heard the album around 5 times now. It's about a 3.5 right. The albums pretty safe, but as expected there are some great melodies. But at the end unfortunately I feel there's a little lack of passion that comes with Anathema albums (tough for me to say this). The production could have been a lot better. The guitar doesn't feature much but at least they could have used some interesting tones.
    June 4 10:44 PM
  • OmairSh Your liking of the latest anathema gives me hope
    June 2 01:06 AM
  • osmark86 you're most welcome
    May 28 08:15 AM
  • osmark86 check out Restless Oblivion - Sands of Time and Human Collapse - Darkness to Fall. seriously awesome 2014 doom releases mate.
    May 28 02:52 AM
  • Wizard Self-titled E.P., Selfless and Hymns are all worth checking out too.
    May 23 07:04 AM
  • Wizard Didn't know you like Godflesh? Dude, this is why I defend you and your opinion all the time!
    May 22 09:32 PM
  • Spag :) I would recommend Tall Poppy Syndrome and Coal from Leprous although you might not dig 'em as much as Bilateral. And I've been enjoying "Restless" and "Carry Me Home" from 40 Watt Sun heavily. Considering buying the whole album very soon since I love Warning now as it is, I still haven't heard "This Alone" or "Open My Eyes" but I know I have absolutely nothing to worry about there :)
    May 17 08:36 PM
    May 17 03:02 PM
  • OmairSh You're talking about Leprous? The band is ****ing insane. Ridiculously talented musicians. I love how they actually embody the "progressive" tag and change things up on every album. Also if you're interested https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKaBwbqEcCA
    May 15 06:55 PM
  • OmairSh I see you're listening to Leprous, the band is not from this planet.
    May 15 01:38 PM
  • OmairSh https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33rXZ74znuw 4:25 So half the material was used from years back with electronic arrangements.
    May 15 12:00 PM
  • Makemebad35 Haha, while listening to a Lantlos song I saw someone ripping deafheaven. I was about to join the convo while reading. Then I realized you were apart of it lol
    May 12 07:58 PM
  • Makemebad35 I'll have to check out both! Heard new triptykon is good.
    May 12 07:47 PM
  • Makemebad35 Of course! Gotta find the best new music somehow.
    May 12 02:49 PM
  • emester bummer about the new Agalloch man. Guess you were right
    May 5 10:15 PM
  • OmairSh I haven't even listened to Marrow properly, so I'm not too surprised, but a 2.5 is pretty low. Anyway maybe I check it out. I'm hoping there's some good experimentation on the new Anathema, I love WS but I don't want a sequel.
    May 4 10:57 PM
  • OmairSh And I'm worried after your Agalloch rating :-/
    May 4 12:34 AM
  • OmairSh Unfortunately I think the production is the problem. It's not crisp, and feels dry. I don't like listening to songs before an album's release as I get tired of that song and normally skip it when the album's released, but I still do it. I never learn. I really like Lee's vocals here, they sound a bit different and refreshing.
    May 4 12:33 AM
  • OmairSh Lookie what I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nh5ShSSmG3c
    May 3 11:49 PM
  • Wizard Please do a review! I'm still looking forward to it. The song they released is awesome.
    April 26 08:04 AM
  • Wizard So tell me about the new Agalloch since I'm one of the few on this site that actually respects your thoughts/ opinions.
    April 25 07:26 AM
  • emester Wow didnt know a new Saor was coming out
    April 21 10:17 AM
  • Kusangii Yeah I can understand that. I have honestly never even given them a true chance. I probably should, since I enjoy atmospheric music. Their new track didn't impress me at all though.
    April 11 07:54 PM
  • Kusangii Just couldn't help but notice that you 5'd all of Agalloch albums. I'd love to be such a fanboy of any band that much :DD hah
    April 11 07:19 PM
  • Kusangii That fanboy
    April 11 05:37 PM
  • Wizard Thank you good sir!
    April 6 08:34 PM
  • Wizard Can u provide me with a link, i think my version is s***
    April 6 04:02 PM
  • Wizard New Triptykon is holy s***! I know you will like it.
    April 6 08:09 AM
  • Wizard Invite only huh? Nevermind, I don't like Torrent's anyways, good way to **** up your computer.
    March 28 09:17 PM
  • Wizard Can you give me a link please and thank you?
    March 28 09:16 PM
  • Wizard Were did you find the new Mayhem? I want to hear it!
    March 27 07:46 AM
  • minty901 thats awesome. my favourite of theirs is colors in stereo but its all good. i'd describe moonlit sailor as fun, bright and pretty instrumental music that doesn't have any kind of delusions of self-importance. whereas lights and motion, what with the more dramatic approach, does seem to harbor some self-importance. especially with the way that the music has been described in interviews etc.
    March 24 03:36 PM
  • Keyblade That new Vindensang dude, yessss
    February 18 12:11 AM
  • ShinobiDaisuke :D You might remember me as the guy who was very frustrated with getting basic item modding to work; adding chests and such. To this day, I even have that Moonsorrow song you gave me on my computer, despite moving between four of them since then. I do still have you on MSN, but I don't use it at all anymore. I always have AIM open when I'm on my computer, but I'll definitely add you on Skype.
    February 11 08:08 AM
  • BloodMusic Thanks very much man, that's cool of you!!
    February 1 05:26 AM
  • zaruyache Wait sorry, I think I mean Rotting Christ. Or maybe a little of both. I can't really tell. I've had a cold all week and my brain's been a little loopy lately. [-:
