  • manosg I was actually going to shoutbox you about Lacrimas Profundere haha! It's one of those albums that if I had been jamming back in the '90s I'd 4.5 in a heartbeat. Going to check the rest of their discog but I think we have found a gem here.
    July 24 12:25 PM
  • manosg For sure! This is the Theatre of Tragedy connection right there.
    July 17 08:55 AM
  • manosg Indeed and he's not interested in continuing his career as a musician let alone resurrect Theatre of Tragedy which is a shame but at least he got to tour with Liv which is pretty awesome.
    July 16 01:22 PM
  • manosg Sweet, will definitely check. In the meantime, I just stumbled upon this today and needles to say I love it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1dHe0pnrUc
    July 16 10:09 AM
  • manosg Just saw it yesterday but haven't checked it yet. Any significant differences compared to the original?
    July 16 03:09 AM
  • manosg Oh yeah. it's very good. Besides the songwriting, I really like Holmes' performance on that album. I'd say it's my second favorite after One Second which I've been enjoying even more lately.
    July 15 03:50 PM
  • artiswar thanks, it does sound better
    July 11 03:54 PM
  • manosg Yup, I checked the BIN remake and even though I'm not a big fan of the song the remake sounds a bit better to my ears. Also, is a band called Brokencyde representative of crunkcore? Man, even funnier than the music are the lyrics and the guys themselves hahaha.
    July 11 02:06 PM
  • manosg Checked the new Cradle of Filth track, Evo? Not bad at all. Also, what is crunkcore lol?
    July 11 10:37 AM
  • Kusangii Yeah, that's the spirit. Most genres probably has something to offer indeed, it's just really difficult to find all those bands that clicks with you personally. That crunkcore genre sounds awful though, not gonna lie lol
    July 11 10:05 AM
  • Kusangii Just my honest opinion man, haha. You seem to dig every single sub-genre of metal out there, which is quite rare to see. ^^
    July 10 01:18 PM
  • Kusangii You have probably the coolest taste of all time. Just figured I had to tell you that.
    July 10 12:35 PM
  • manosg Thanks, Evo! Doom metal with Vampirella on the cover? I'm definitely checking it.
    July 8 02:53 PM
  • manosg Looks beautiful, Evo. Really need to buy a turntable at some point but I'm afraid it's going to ruin my finances haha. Do you have a lot of LPs?
    July 7 02:50 PM
  • manosg ugh that sucks. But a remake from BIN as a bonus track could be very interesting and surprising at the same time haha.
    July 7 02:38 PM
  • manosg Can these guys even disappoint? It's not easy succeeding an album like The Plague Within but if Medusa is almost as good I will be very very happy.
    July 7 02:28 PM
  • manosg lol it's dangerous to try to change anything on this site anymore. I really hope something changes at some point and things don't get worse.
    July 6 08:48 AM
  • manosg Exactly! I grew up with classic rock (among other '90s stuff of course) and I find it very hard to accept more modern stuff like these guys or Volbeat who I checked last year, for example. But I will continue trying and who knows I might be able to get some enjoyment at least. Worst case scenario is improving my objectivity haha.
    July 6 08:32 AM
  • manosg hehe, stumbled upon it on Deezer and I thought to give it a go. It's not bad at all and it does have it fair share of fun but I just can't digest modern rock so much it seems haha. But I definitely understand why someone may like it.
    July 6 08:03 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Could you send us it again laaaaa? I'll try again.
    July 4 06:17 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 The link didn't work, bud. If I recall.
    July 4 02:56 AM
  • manosg Arcana Coelestia, iirc, was in one of those doom tournaments people used to organize (which I miss) and I checked it back then but can't remember how much I enjoyed it.
    July 3 04:16 PM
  • manosg Hey Evo! Yeah, I checked Edguy who I should have checked 20 years ago haha, They were predictably solid. I also want to listen to Sorni Nai at some point because of your description which I am sure I will enjoy.
    July 3 03:28 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Aye, only Diru can sound like Diru; nothing will match it. But I'll take a Kyo project that offers something with a level of substance. I think you should review it.BTW, is the site being hellishly slow for you, or is it just my s***e works computer?
    June 28 07:31 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 I didn't say sounding DIR EN GREY, I said is it the same level of quality. haha But will definitely check it tonight. Your description certainly has me interested.
    June 28 06:44 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Oh, wow. If you say it's legit, send it my way, mate. DIR EN GREY quality?
    June 28 05:35 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Oh, wow. If you say it's legit, send it my way, mate. DIR EN GREY quality?
    June 28 05:35 AM
  • manosg It's like these girls which are super cute but nothing more than that. I am okay with the lack of progress from Motorhead and AC/DC but Anathema was so much more than that for me. Sorry buddy I knew my soundoff would frustrate you but had to get it out of my system ;)
    June 21 08:52 AM
  • manosg hehe I knew you would message me! You know that I really like these guys Evo and I rarely bother bashing bands which I'm not emotionally connected with. But I've been jamming the album for quite a while now and the only feelings I get are slight boredom and frustration. Not because it's a bad album but because it feels so safe. I compare them with MDB, Paradise Lost, Amorphis, even The Gathering and Theatre of Tragedy and this makes their lack of taking chances even more frustrating.
    June 21 08:51 AM
  • manosg Same here. Checked Into the Electric Castle in the past but didn't love it and their last one this week and found it pretty funny because a lot of melodies reminded me of The Gentle Storm.
    June 18 02:46 PM
  • manosg Yup. Loved the vocals but the instrumentation didn't impress me much, felt a bit ordinary. Definitely stoked though! Did you have the chance to check the new Ayreon?
    June 18 02:02 PM
  • Flugmorph come to discord breh: https://discord.gg/AkxdUX
    June 11 08:38 AM
  • Flugmorph i wasnt to hot on it on first listen tbh :(
    June 9 07:06 PM
  • Flugmorph how do you like the new birthday massacre record man :3
    June 9 02:33 PM
  • manosg Mandylion and The Angel are both solid recs, I'll definitely think about them. Gutter Ballet has a really good review and it would be a shame to get the flag because of a tag. You're also right on the money with the new Anathema. Not impressed even though I've only checked it once. They've been doing the same thing for so long and I don't know if I can give them a pass this time. I mean everything is well-composed and performed but these guys used to be so adventurous.
    June 4 02:28 PM
  • manosg Also, love that Loreena McKennitt rating!
    June 4 01:58 PM
  • manosg I wanna say yes but I really don't know. I am afraid I wrote my anniversary review a bit too early in the form of Velvet Darkness They Fear haha. But definitely thinking about it. Any suggestions?
    June 4 01:56 PM
  • manosg Yeah do check it, it's not bad by any means.
    June 1 02:51 PM
  • manosg lol thanks for the correction Evo! It's not a bad album but nothing special either to me despite its influences. It kinda reminded me of Spiritual Beggars' latest LP.
    June 1 02:45 PM
  • manosg This is a good point haha. I would love to learn if these guys are trolling people like me or actually believe that they are making music. Truth is I had years to listen to something as atrocious as this album haha.
    May 20 01:04 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Have to admit, I was expecting a 2 from it myself. I need to check the Kimmel show they did, I've heard it's decent.
    May 20 09:27 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Yeah, I know what you mean. I haven't had much time to go on the computer lately, so I have a backlog of albums i need to check. haha I also listened to the new LP album though; really not that bad, surprisingly. Not good either, mind!
    May 19 03:16 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Cheers bud! Nah, I don't think he does haha must be a coincidence! How's it going?
    May 19 02:26 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 New track of mine dropped today if you wanna check it buddy? Let us know what you think.https://deepsands.bandcamp.com/album/theuntitledshortcuthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToTBX8HR4tA
    May 19 12:22 PM
  • Flugmorph oh boi that looks neat, im gonna read that
    May 16 12:33 AM
  • Flugmorph dude why are you not in our discord server btw
    May 8 04:38 PM
  • manosg Indeed, I wasn't very happy with the electro track on Distant Satellites. I will be content if there's at least some variety throughout the album. Not expecting a new A4 or Judgement, they're way past that but at least give us some variety, a sense of adventure. But I trust your opinion and especially when it comes to these guys so I'm feeling eager to check the album.
    May 6 11:17 AM
  • manosg Awesome, gonna check asap. It seems that these guys can do no wrong, with various degrees of success ofc.
    May 6 08:37 AM
  • manosg I found it more commercial and less adventurous, but at the same time more catchy. Can't say if I enjoyed it more or less but I certainly liked it more than I expected. I see you've rated the new Anathema! How does it sound?
    May 6 07:49 AM
  • Angelboros Hey, Havok Engine, what's this I'm hearing bout a new Diru song that was played live?
    May 5 04:19 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Cheers budday.
    April 27 04:40 AM

    April 19 05:37 AM
  • manosg haha yeah, I wanted to like the album more given the style of music they play but it just let something to be desired; maybe a truly standout track. Let's hope they fix that on their debut LP.
    April 17 01:57 PM
  • AcmeApathyAmok Yeah, I had the Mode Of series downloaded but haven't watched them all until recently. Nothing short of amazing, especially Mode of Kisou which was my favorite of the three.
    April 17 01:54 PM
  • 50iL Ima hit up Soulseek, they're prob on there
    April 7 04:10 PM
  • 50iL He hasn't, but I've heard about them. I've wanted to download their discog for some time now.
    April 7 02:47 PM
  • 50iL Yes haha, thanks mane
    April 7 04:31 AM
  • 50iL Dis is my first DEG album :3

    April 7 04:22 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Ahh got ya, I thought you meant you had em all up there for stream. Cheers for the DSS stream anyway.
    April 7 03:49 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 All three?only Dss streamed, the other two wouldn't? It's cool haha it was good enough for me like
    April 6 03:45 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Was it? haha Well, cheers man. But yeah, I streamed that link for DSS that Calc sent us from the site; couldn't do it with the others though.
    April 6 04:58 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Oh, it was something else, dude! Calc gave me the other two, but they aren't stream and they won't play on my player....
    April 6 04:47 AM
  • manosg Not yet but it's definitely a priority. Been jamming the new Mastodon though and liking it even though I'm not a big fan of the band.
    March 31 03:33 PM
  • manosg Definitely. It's a shame that albums like this one or Thy Catafalque went unreviewed last year.
    March 19 02:21 PM
  • manosg Great choice, Evo! It's got those sincere '90s doom/gothic vibes we both love. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
    March 18 04:16 PM
  • manosg I admire your perseverance, Evo! Personally, I couldn't watch more than a few minutes. Just wish there was a clear/non-360 version somewhere on YT just to watch the collaboration with Anneke.
    March 13 01:08 PM
  • manosg Oh yeah, loooved listening to Anneke singing like that. There are also a couple of videos of the concert on YouTube but their quality is so poor which is a shame because the album sounds more like a gathering of friends rather than a typical concert.
    March 13 08:52 AM
  • manosg Haven't read the review yet but I'll let you know when I do. Have these guys released anything worth jamming?
    March 10 03:17 PM
  • manosg haha these guys a getting annihilated on here and the Greek edition of Metal Hammer gave them a rating of 7/10. Dunno what to think about it.
    March 10 02:51 PM
  • manosg lol curious to see what's your next rating
    March 10 02:21 PM
  • manosg Oh yeah, when you're in a fun cheesy mood Rhapsody is one of the better choices out there. Checked any great album lately, Evo?
    March 10 01:58 PM
  • manosg Hey Evo, how is everything? Have you checked An Evening with Friends at Huvila by Amorphis? Even though I'm not the biggest fan of their post-Tuonela stuff, I have it on replay the last few days.
    March 9 08:05 AM
  • Xenorazr Thanks, and I definitely intend to keep them coming in full supply!
    February 27 09:07 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Thanks buddy!
    February 27 10:21 AM
  • danielcardoso Thanks man, lol yeah he has stuff coming out real soon :]
    February 27 10:15 AM
  • cryptologous Thanks bro, really appreciate it!
    February 27 09:14 AM
  • manosg Thank you Evo, much appreciate it!
    February 27 09:10 AM
  • Gameofmetal Thanks!
    February 27 09:08 AM
  • Jasdevi087 where are teh ratings?
    February 23 10:31 PM
  • manosg Finally checked Thy Catafalque - Meta and it's excellent. So varied and with so many interesting moments but quite accessible at the same time.
    January 10 01:57 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Merry Christmas Evo
    December 25 12:21 PM
  • manosg Merry Christmas, Evo! All the best to you and your loved ones.
    December 25 10:32 AM
  • necropig Merry Christmas! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    December 25 06:59 AM
  • Flugmorph thx you glorious goth lover, same to you and heres for another great year on sputnik :)
    December 25 06:50 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Merry Christmas, mate. Have a good one!
    December 25 05:41 AM
  • manosg Right back at ya! Yeah I rarely find albums that transport me back to my teen days and TG25: Live at Doornroosje did exactly this. I'm eager to see where the band goes from there. Seeing your list, I really need to check Thy Catafalque and Emma Ruth Rundle. Only thing that bothers me with Thy Catafalque is the industrial tag. Are the industrial elements very evident on their album?
    December 20 08:00 AM
  • manosg I actually expected to enjoy it more than From Afar but I didn't. I'm quite new to Ensiferum though so my ratings may change. Have you checked Caladan Brood - Echoes of Battle? I listened to it a couple of times in 2013 when it came out and I'm jamming it now. I can't see it in your ratings so if you haven't already checked it, it's highly recommended.
    December 15 02:13 PM
  • manosg Yes, I can live with that a bit more. Dunno if you're into black metal but I've been jamming this album quite a bit lately. It was released in April and flew under the radar but I just love its atmosphere and the guitar playing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zp0ll6iuvSM
    November 28 03:57 PM
  • manosg I presume you say my soundoff for the new Volbeat lol. I found it okay instrumentally, but I felt that it was completely devoid of soul. To be completely honest though, I just heard the album once.
    November 28 03:28 PM
  • manosg Those damn falsettos are so ridiculous haha. I don't even know if the singer was trolling or doing those falsettos because he actually thought they were benefiting the music.
    November 28 02:12 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Yeah, the one where he breaks down is just...ugh, the chills.
    November 18 01:22 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 I take it back, Tousei is probably fave from the album and it ****ing blew the set out of the water live; unbelievable.
    November 17 12:11 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 Can't really pick any tbh, it was damn near flawless.
    November 13 08:37 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Just watched Arche at Budokan last night; fantastic is a bit of an understatement.
    November 13 03:57 AM
  • DarkSideOfLucca you're my new favorite person
    November 7 12:38 PM
  • Angelboros You know, looking at the avgs, I have a feeling MDB's discography is fairly consistent. The vocalist also said somewhere that either Like Gods of the Sun or The Dreadful Hours is his favorite album, so I'll definitely put those somewhere on my extensive bucket list. Thing's gonna get torn apart sooner or later, I swear :P
    November 6 12:08 PM
  • Angelboros Indeed. Decided on giving that album a few listens before rating it, of course. Wondrous record, and one that has convinced me to check the band's other releases in due time.
    November 6 11:48 AM
  • manosg Indeed, Lake of Tears - Forever Autumn is also a great choice but I can't even remember the last time I listened to it. And I've yet to listen to A Crimson Cosmos by these guys.
    October 31 04:18 PM
  • manosg Same here. I've also heard Souvenirs d'un autre monde because it was in one of Keyblade's lists and it's pretty good too. The thing is, when I try to listen to something melancholic during fall, I always end up jamming the same stuff again and again. Theatre of Tragedy, Anathema, My Dying Bride, etc.
    October 31 03:50 PM
  • manosg Just two songs in and it's great. Very trippy and melancholic in a good way.
    October 31 03:40 PM
  • manosg Hey Evo! Actually no but thank you for reminding me. I will check it right now and even though I won't be able to jam it in its entirety, it will suffice for getting the feel of the album.
    October 31 03:24 PM
  • Mythodea Will do, thanks. (I admit it had flown over my head)
    October 5 04:01 PM
  • Mythodea Hi there, I've uploaded my review on the new Epica album on the Proofreading thread. Can you give it a shot and tell me if there's something wrong?
    October 5 03:21 PM
  • manosg hmm not an easy choice indeed. If I had to choose one, it would be the new Vektor, followed by Fates Warning. I actually think that the new Fates Warning is one of the best of their career.
    October 3 02:29 PM
  • manosg Sweet. Gonna jam Kodama as soon as possible. I've been intrigued by the cover art for quite some time. So many great albums this year!
    October 3 02:08 PM
  • manosg I enjoyed it a lot yeah. I see that you have rated the new Alcest. Is it a good starting point or should I check their discog chronologically? Also, if you have some time, try to check Limbonic Art. Their first two albums are pretty impressive.
    October 3 12:32 PM
  • Flugmorph am i famous on sput for my plebbyness?
    August 29 03:23 PM
  • Flugmorph ha cant even really remember that, although there was something. we just know whats good ayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyye

    August 23 07:47 PM
  • Dis_Con_Nec_Ted Thanks man. Will be using those for better quality for sure.
    August 22 09:47 AM
  • Dis_Con_Nec_Ted Not exactly. Found the most recent live release in decent quality on youtube though hehe. Noticed the 4h live DSS as well. I imagine the Tour 14 Gauze is there too.
    August 22 08:13 AM
  • OmairSh Forced in a sense that it seems at times the band composed the chorus first, and decided to fill in the space with a couple of verses. I'm slowly digesting the album, but still it feels like a bit of a let down. I don't hear those extremely unusual song structures that Tom mentioned on fb. It feels pretty standard verse, chorus, bridge like to me. I also hate that they chose the same guy as Hymns to master it. It's too compressed, and the low end is almost absent.
    August 20 09:21 PM
  • OmairSh So I couldn't resist and got the new Evergrey. Listened to it around 3 times. Hasn't really left an impression apart from sounding formulaic and a bit forced. Passing Through is a belter of a track though. Amazing chorus
    August 19 07:14 PM
  • Flugmorph https://www.dubtrack.fm/join/sput get in
    August 18 07:48 AM

    July 31 06:07 AM
  • Flugmorph New witherscape really has some opethian vibes or mikael has swano vibes idk ^^
    July 29 10:05 AM
  • manosg Yup. So, is the new Witherscape an improvement compared to the debut?
    July 27 10:24 AM
  • Flugmorph oh well. kinda like half the goth scene then hehe. the gathering, katatonia, anathema
    July 27 08:10 AM
  • Flugmorph the cleans not tho. they are ok i guess.
    July 27 08:06 AM
  • Flugmorph https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BjNpW-6aZY vocals remind me of nergal. i dig it!
    July 27 08:05 AM
  • Flugmorph also the new BLACK CROWN INITIATE looks pretty promissing
    July 27 08:03 AM
  • Flugmorph im gonna check nightingale next i guess. gothic metal from swanö sounds ****ing amazing
    July 27 07:51 AM
  • Flugmorph he has dem vocals and dem riffs man. so tasty
    July 27 07:50 AM
  • manosg Hey Evo! No, not yet but I've read good things and it's Dan Swano so it's gonna rule. I think that we (including me ofc) don't talk very often about how important Dan Swano has been for our music, for more that 20 years. To me, he's as important as say Mikael Akerfeldt.
    July 27 05:31 AM
  • Flugmorph To answer myself here. Ye it ****ing bangs indeed
    July 27 03:47 AM
  • Flugmorph new witherscape shall be good aye?

  • OmairSh Yo Evo, check the new fates warning record. Quality prog metal
    July 5 01:32 AM
  • Flugmorph the new the vision bleak brings the riffs so hard man :)
    July 4 09:13 AM
  • OmairSh Hopefully it'll be more risky than Hymns and a little less compressed. Need that first single to be released
    June 28 12:54 AM
  • OmairSh AAAAAAHHHHH!!!! Can't wait!!! https://www.facebook.com/Evergrey/videos/1194309053953974/
    June 23 06:12 PM
  • Flugmorph Last song is a total nightwish epic ripoff hahaha
    May 27 10:26 AM
  • Flugmorph feels more like Power metal with screamy vocals than mdm to me. But in the end many finish mdm bands are like that I guess. Thats why I could never really get into children of bodom, kalmah or norther.

  • Flugmorph It's to much dragonforce-like wankery in there to truly enjoy it atm.
    May 27 08:04 AM
  • Flugmorph Yo dawg. What do u think about the new whispered album? How does it compare to their last effort.
    May 26 01:22 PM
  • AnimalsAsSummit hell yes!!!! Album is too amazing, deserves every bit of attention it can get
    May 22 11:53 AM
  • manosg For what it's worth, I had a lot of second thoughts about my rating but I just went with how I felt ;)
    May 22 05:00 AM
  • manosg Oh man, I was about to write a soundoff in order to explain myself but I was so fed up after hearing the whole thing. Don't get me wrong, in terms of music the album is great but I just couldn't stand listening to grown men whining song after song after song. During the first 4-5 songs I enjoyed the album a lot but then it became just very linear, samey and whiny. I mean early Anathema was all about human pain and anguish... Universal felt like moaning and griping.
    May 22 04:59 AM
  • manosg For sure. And that lineup is dream. Listening to Andy LaRocque playing death metal is so awesome.
    May 19 07:52 AM
  • manosg Awesome! I was almost sure you'd enjoy it because of all the influences that Oceans of Slumber have incorporated to their music. I've been also jamming the new Vektor the last few days and it's seriously one of the best metal albums I've heard over the past years.
    May 7 07:31 AM
  • manosg Nice. Gonna give em a chance.
    April 28 03:07 PM
  • manosg For sure, repercussions might not be temporary but the way we feel about them might as well be ;) Played Skyrim too but didn't love it. Oblivion is on a whole another level though. I see you've rated Howls of Ebb. Never checked anything by them. Do you think their latest is a good starting point?
    April 28 02:26 PM
  • manosg Yeah, real life's hard some times. Whenever I'm down, I like to think that everything is temporary which might not say much when you're feeling down but it's true. Never played Dark Souls but I started playing Oblivion after many years and been really enjoying it. This year is solid in terms of new releases. New Rimfrost is some of the best Immortal worship I've listened and Ripper - Experiment of Existence is as good as modern death/thrash gets.
    April 28 02:00 PM
  • manosg They're a good choice for support given the music they play. You'll probably enjoy the album whenever you check it. How's everything?

    April 15 01:35 PM
  • manosg Yeah, I saw your rating and a couple of other guys' and thought to give it a chance. Great album, with a lot of variation and emotion.
    April 7 05:15 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Yeah, it's one of my favourites from her. So far, I think TInderbox and Juju are def their best albums, but they have so many worthwhile tracks on other albums and b-sides.
    April 4 02:49 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Hmmm I've been checking them out constantly for the past 3-4 weeks, they have a lot of great songs and albums. Ever listen to Dazzle?
    April 4 11:36 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Yeah, agreed there. And cheers, we've always had the intention of having the art tell as much of the story as the song, so it's good to hear that it works. lol Like the wintery black metal albums, their artwork works so well with the songs.
    April 3 04:24 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 I didn't realise it painted a picture that strongly? haha
    April 3 03:51 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Yeah, always found that EP a little weak imo. Cheers dude! Means a lot.
    April 3 03:50 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 You digging the Six Ugly EP a lot these days?
    April 3 03:36 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 haha nice one. How you doing?
    April 2 03:36 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 Exactly hahaha
    April 2 02:17 AM
  • DrGonzo1937 I didn't realise you liked the page? Haha
    April 1 04:27 PM
  • DrGonzo1937 My band's second ep dropped today if you wanna check it out dude? https://deepsands.bandcamp.com/album/endless-reflection
    April 1 10:16 AM
  • RunOfTheMill Hey out of curiosity, how much Siouxsie have you listened to?
    April 1 09:20 AM
  • Sinternet yeah it was pretty dope, kinda given me the enthusiasm to check out some Buck-Tick stuff considering I've always ignored them a little
    March 25 08:10 PM
  • manosg For sure haha. That Necrophobic album is awesome as well.
    March 22 02:56 AM
  • manosg To be honest, it felt like Anneke is wasting her potential singing this kind of music. She's like extra-constrained and that really bothers me. The album isn't bad per se but my thought was that any other female vocalist could be in her place and the result would be as good. So the rating is the sum of my enjoyment of the album and frustration at the same time haha.
    March 21 04:23 PM
  • Angelboros Uroboros is one of my all-time favorite albums, so I'll have to check Nippon Budokan at some point; speaking of NB, there's the one for Dum Spiro Spero which is on my checklist, and Arche's will be out eventually. As far as other lives go, Tabula Rasa and It Withers and Withers will be up my alley :)
    March 15 11:37 AM
  • Angelboros Damn, man, nice!
    March 14 10:26 AM
  • Aberf Dude, I'd cry an ocean If I were to see Dir En Grey live.
    March 11 05:32 PM
  • Aberf Exactly. It was one of the best camera work out there for a concert. And it's actually funny how the crowd is pretty much in tears when they see their favorite band. Japanese crowd best crowd.
    March 11 09:43 AM
  • Aberf it's actually insane. The crowd is amazing as well.
    March 11 09:25 AM
  • Spacesh1p Will definitely do that. Always on the look out for death/black recs.
    March 8 03:28 PM
  • Spacesh1p That's me agreeing with you, to be clear, haha
    March 8 03:20 PM
  • Spacesh1p Hey if I can jam Greek BM I can jam Japanese rock lol.
    March 8 03:20 PM
  • Spacesh1p A lot more doom and drone influences, yeah, for sure. I didn't think it was what could be called J-rock. Still a fantastic band of course.
    March 8 03:12 PM
  • Spacesh1p Awesome, thanks. I'll let you know how it all goes. Been digging a lot of Boris lately which is not J-Rock as I understand it (could be wrong, I am extremely inexperienced with the genre) but has primed the pump a bit for Japanese music more generally.
    March 8 03:02 PM
  • Spacesh1p Sup Evo, wanted to ask you for a good place to start with DeG. I jammed GAUZE once and it didn't really click for me but they look like a sweet band so I'd love to explore them more.
    March 8 02:22 PM
  • manosg Glad you enjoyed Ravensire, man. You're the only one who's checked it haha.
    March 7 03:09 AM
  • manosg Definitely, Evo. Anneke's still got it and I'm surprised by her singing on classic stuff tbh. Is a reunion and a new album with her on vox too much to ask?
    March 6 02:54 PM
  • Angelboros Correct rating for Babymetal ;)

  • Aberf DSS is actually alright.
    February 23 12:42 AM
  • manosg Gotta love those Haggard and Fleurety ratings ;)
    February 18 07:54 AM
  • TalonsOfFire Thanks dude m/
    February 12 04:31 PM
  • manosg haha yeah just saw you! Followed you back.
    February 12 03:42 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Cool, I was on there briefly today but no one I really knew was in there. I'll probably use it more now that I've discovered this replacement tho, since the original plug.dj site is gone.
    February 8 02:44 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I know right? My step-brother, who listens to all kinds of weird s*** played it for me in his car a few weeks back and I loved it, he showed me Ghost too last year.
    February 8 02:27 PM
  • RunOfTheMill Wooh thanks buddy!
    February 5 07:33 AM
  • OmairSh I'm just happy to have a Rikard solo album

  • RunOfTheMill Btw you seem to have a knack for gothic stuff, got any recs? My gf is really getting into it and admittedly a little has rubbed off on me
