  • OmairSh Some more snippets!! . I'm still holding back my excitement. Dam, looks like Martin got kicked out the band before even recording his bass parts. And friggin hell it looks like Einar likes the staccato riffing
    April 15 06:20 PM
  • LordePots no just have it bookmarked so it might be a while ive got a long queue :/
    April 13 08:00 PM
  • Thor yeah dude, I'm interviewing them for Heavy Blog Is Heavy on Friday
    April 13 12:55 AM
  • OmairSh AIGHT I'LL CHECK THEM OUT!!!!!!!
    April 9 10:46 PM
  • Wizard I found it in the database here and it looks like tech-death (not the biggest fan of tech-death). I will give them a go.
    April 8 07:48 AM
  • OmairSh Also I've watched the video like 20 times at least, I need to stop. I seriously love the verses and wouldn't mind more moody sections like that!!!
    April 7 09:30 PM
  • OmairSh And even if the album is fantastic, one thing's for sure, EINAR NEEDS TO STOP HOGGING SONGWRITING DUTIES FROM NOW ON! You've got at least two other incredibly talented composers and suppressing them will only frustrate them and may even cause them to leave. Einar, Tor, and Oystein are the backbone of the band and NEED to remain in the band at all costs.

  • OmairSh I know I know, you know I'm going to over analyse because it's ****ing LEPROUS!!! Yeah I was hoping they'd choose a single more in the vain of Restless (that was an incredible single). Anyway they did say the album will be dark and twisted as reflected by the artwork, I'm still expecting that. If this album is safe then Einar is getting a VERY strongly worded e-mail!!! Also 8 stringed guitars are great and all, but I want them used a lot less for the core elements of the song compared to Coal.
    April 7 09:08 PM
  • OmairSh Haha you couldn't even wait a day!! I've posted a news article, but the video is still unlisted so it's not being embedded in the article. The verse is stunning and the chorus is good, but it's a bit conservative. I keep waiting for a climax, but it doesn't come, and the verse melody is repeated too often and kind of loses it's novelty by the end. Still a cool song, but it didn't make me s*** my pants in excitement for the album. This album needs to be better than Coal dude!!

  • Hawks To each his own my man. m/
    April 3 10:52 PM
  • Hawks Hahahaha sorry dude it just doesn't click with me, not bad though. But yeah of course lol.
    April 3 08:21 PM
  • OmairSh It's okay, I won't tell you how the single was. I got your back :-P
    April 2 11:51 PM
  • OmairSh LEPROUS VIDEO BEING RELEASED NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!! Oh I mean, the album's being released in June....yayy.... :-D
    April 2 11:24 PM
  • Hawks So I decided to write up a review for Drawn, check it out when you can bro. m/
    March 31 08:23 PM
  • Hawks I was thinking about writing something up, but I'm not too good either so I'd rather have someone else write one and do it justice haha.
    March 30 09:13 PM
  • Hawks I'm trying to get Atari to write a review for it. I rec'd it to him like a week or so ago and he digs it hard as well. Hopefully it'll get some more exposure.
    March 30 08:27 PM
  • OmairSh Well I don't think you could do it simply because the music video is going to be released next month most probably :-P. You could try to though, you'd only have to wait ONE WHOLE MONTH longer, that's all. The tag was removed probably because people decided to untag it, and that's why you and I need to bring it back. I think 2 tags should be enough. And there are easier ways to wipe the ratings :-D. Why the wipe btw?
    March 30 08:01 PM
  • OmairSh Longest Leprous album to date......I'm excited but a little anxious at the same time. I mean it's bloody Leprous so I should be over the moon (plus TPS was 63 minutes and it was fantastic). But maybe it's good I'm lowering my expectations just a liiiiiittle bit. If it's as good as TPS then Leprous will have to be considered the best modern prog band. Yo dude, for some reason the "experimental" tag has been removed from Leprous, TAG IT!!
    March 30 02:21 PM
  • Hawks That's a tough one man, they're all great. I'd say A-scape if I had to choose though.
    March 30 10:48 AM
  • DarkNoctus you bet! can't wait! [:
    March 30 08:28 AM
  • OmairSh Yeee boi I saw, looks fanbloodyTASTIC!! It was the same artwork they used for their European tour poster. It doesn't really fit the album name, but it's pretty cool. Hopefully 65 minutes won't feel too lengthy and I'm hoping it'll be a dark album. Now they should hurry the hell up and release the damn video!
    March 26 08:56 PM
  • Hawks Sounds good man I'll check them. m/
    March 26 11:10 AM
  • Hawks Sweet bro I'll get on it.
    March 24 05:17 PM
  • Hawks It's honestly so good. First album that has really blown me away in a while.
    March 24 02:52 AM
  • Hawks Dude that Drawn album from your list is ****ing awesome. I'm jamming it now and loving it.
    March 23 11:17 PM
  • OmairSh Nicee, ICS will kill it in the vocal department for sure. 2015 is looking good. SW is releasing his today, Enslaved in March. And did you see leprous' fb post? Snippets off the new album?!! Yes please!
    February 27 07:34 AM
  • OmairSh Probably the opening lyric of the album
    February 22 10:51 PM
  • OmairSh I have a bad feeling another Leprous bassplayer has departed. Last photo session without the bassists was proof of that. Why do I get the sneaky suspicion that it's difficult to work with Einar?
    February 22 02:53 AM
  • OmairSh I'll hopefully be motivated enough to check SW and Enslaved
    February 19 09:34 PM
  • OmairSh "The Congregation", I really like that title. May 25th is so far away!!!! :-(. The thing I'm most anxious about is Einar is the primary songwriter. I hope he doesn't become a dickhead dictator and hog all of the writing duties in the future. It would be a damn shame considering the band has at least two other fantastic songwriters in Tor and Oystein.
    February 19 03:01 PM
  • OmairSh Glad he liked Leprous, it's such a polarising band because of how long it takes to digest the music.
    February 13 04:19 PM
  • ParanoidAndroid96 yeah I just watched them all the other day. they're excellent
    February 12 09:30 PM
  • ParanoidAndroid96 yo nice avatar
    February 12 11:27 AM
  • OmairSh Yo yo yo what up? Leprous has finished recording their album and is in the mixing stage. Omg yes Omg yes Omg yes Omg yes Omg yes Omg yes
    February 9 12:35 PM
  • OmairSh I have a lot of Townsend material I still need to listen to before I get to his latest albums. I'm curious about something, how come people are wanking over Ne Oblivi-whatever the **** because they're an innovative prog band, but not Leprous? Even Haken gets more love
    November 1 12:45 PM
  • OmairSh I've heard the first 2 Haken albums and they're good, but not out of this world. Fans are calling them the future of prog metal. Ummm HELLOOOOO, ever heard of Leprous?
    October 30 08:14 PM
  • OmairSh 15 tracks they are working more on, I hope it's close to Bilateral greatness! They need to release it ASAP. That's a younger prog rock band, apparently they're one's to look out for in the future. I've only heard one song and it was just al right, one of their influences is Pain of Salvation
    October 30 08:11 PM
  • OmairSh
    October 30 07:50 PM
  • OmairSh Ah in that case it makes sense. Actually I'm probably in the minority with regards to Watershed
    October 14 03:14 PM
  • FranzSchubert MAIZE
    October 14 07:30 AM
  • OmairSh yeah 7 now. Dam you had Watershed at a 5? I think its their weakest along with PC.
    October 14 12:08 AM
  • OmairSh Finally got the balls to bump TPS and Bilateral ratings. It felt plain wrong not 5ing Bilateral
    October 13 09:41 PM
  • Lethean that manes album is gonna be slept on hard easily top 10 albums this year
    October 13 09:21 PM
  • OmairSh Nah dude I don't :/. Last console I owned was a PS2. Now it's used for collecting any extra dust thats in my cupboard.
    October 12 08:53 PM
  • OmairSh F.U.C.K YES
    October 11 12:17 AM
  • OmairSh They see me trollin :D
    October 7 01:08 AM
  • OmairSh :P which song did you replace it with? I have yet to hear their debut
    October 7 12:33 AM
  • conesmoke Dude I am so ready. I'm going to devs guitar clinic in October too :), should be great
    September 29 12:47 PM
  • Voivod Yeah, I've been waiting for the new PS album too. I like all their albums, but Mosquito stands as the first among equals.
    September 25 12:13 AM
  • Voivod Yeah, their discog consists of classics only. Did you check them out?
    September 24 11:48 PM
    September 18 02:21 AM
    September 18 01:52 AM
  • OmairSh What genres are they? I want to review Dark Tranquillity's DVD but need to get in the mood
    August 15 11:36 PM
  • OmairSh Dude check the new Evergrey single out, it's in the news section.
    August 15 11:17 PM
  • OmairSh I think Anathema played it safe with DS, but obviously there's quality on it. The production should have been better though. I don't know my favourite track from it but Lost Song's 1 and 2 are both great. I've heard a few Arcturus songs and I think I remember enjoying them to a certain extent. ICS' vocals are incredible. I'll check Kekal out thanks.
    August 12 10:18 PM
  • OmairSh I used to listen to a bit of black metal. Can you give recs of atmospheric bm? Nice Distant Satellites rating, how'd you like it? :-)
    August 11 11:21 PM
  • OmairSh Wow surprised you managed to wait this long. Well I won't say anything until you've digested it properly :-). I've been on an old school thrash binge. Good old fashioned metal with equally good production qualities. Don't feel like listening to the newer stuff now
    August 7 09:00 PM
  • OmairSh I checked the lotus effect a while back and didn't really get into it, might check this out thanks.
    August 2 10:05 PM
    July 12 07:42 PM
    July 11 10:37 PM
  • OmairSh Dam dude I thought you already had the physical copy of the album. That's coo though, jam it on repeat now (I don't really need to say that I know :P)
    June 18 08:03 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah that discredits the list quite a bit. Also Jim Matheos and Daniel Gildenlow aren't on here, seriously?
    June 5 11:13 PM
  • OmairSh You'll be happy about this
    June 5 05:10 PM
  • OmairSh Well the list has some great vocalists that aren't given enough love like Vinny Cavanagh, D Gildenlow, Karevik, Alder, and of course Einar, so I can respect the list. But yeah Einar, Vinny, and Gildenlow are probably top 3 for me from this list.
    May 31 01:03 AM
  • DarkNoctus both rule!! :] just like you!
    May 17 07:50 PM
  • OmairSh Do you remember streets of rage? ****ing brilliant cover of a song off the first game The bass tone is a little too dry but whatever :P
    May 17 06:50 PM
  • OmairSh I remember watching Restless' video 2 or 3 years back and being impressed with the vocals, but not exploring the band. Thank God I finally did.
    May 17 06:29 PM
  • OmairSh But the album is beyond excellent :D. 2.5 years of a better life ;). Yo if you're into electronic/dance I highly recommend Todd Terje's "it's album time". So damn addictive., the song gets really good after 2:58
    May 17 06:21 PM
  • OmairSh REPRESEENT! I would have liked to see a higher rating, but hey I don't mind a 4.
    May 17 03:31 PM
  • OmairSh Was just listening to some of the live performances the band have uploaded, and Tobias' absence can be felt. Sucks
    May 12 07:15 PM
  • OmairSh So Tobias left because he was involved in too many projects, and they replace him with someone that's in the same circumstance. They've encountered some instability right after Coal, but the new members are both good. Hopefully the only turbulence now is in their music.
    May 6 07:22 PM
  • OmairSh Tobias has left Leprous!!! They've replaced him with a great drummer but still!
    May 5 07:19 PM
  • jybt Indeed. They're one of the most original bands going around. The Habit of Fire is my top pick, but it's not an easy listen.
    April 29 11:13 PM
  • OmairSh So you are alive. Whats up? I've been in a FW mood lately, bumped a few albums m/
    April 29 07:12 PM
  • OmairSh Ahoy
    April 29 03:31 AM
  • YoYoMancuso lol you should check more of that guy's videos he's the man
    March 13 05:38 PM
  • OmairSh Yo
    December 7 12:26 AM
  • OmairSh Even if I lost my mind, I wouldn't give ADHD a 3.5. I think I prefer that to Images and Words
    November 21 08:51 PM
  • OmairSh You 3.5d ADHD....... Payback for me 3.5ing your 5's?
    November 13 10:12 PM
  • demon of surveillance Ohhh okay I'd never seen that soundoff before. And that sucks about the release date, at least it's worth it! And After is a really fantastic album, I didn't know until today that Jørgen Munkeby from Shining (Nor) plays sax on it.
    October 18 07:30 PM
  • demon of surveillance I'm very confused by your "Das Seelenbrechen" soundoff.
    October 18 05:38 PM
  • OmairSh You had torrented it before? Why did you buy it after already listening to it?
    September 21 11:37 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah man that performance was indeed fantastic, love the funky bass tone in between, and love the fact that Mariusz experiments with tones. Mix could be better though. And yeah the band is brilliant, like Leprous they're paving the way for prog of the future. Yeah let ADHD grow on you, album kicks ridiculous amounts of ass.
    August 27 03:07 AM
  • OmairSh Only 4 for ADHD? :-/
    August 27 02:47 AM
  • OmairSh Just listen to that organ, My God. You can find the other live performances on youtube
    August 24 02:30 PM
  • OmairSh Yeah Alcest is a high 3.5 to 4, I might have jumped the gun, my rating might drop but the musics good. I think its heavily criticised because it has certain black metal elements and so it's faux bm or too pussy, etc. Yeah dude definitely check out Riversides discog, great prog band. Their latest albums their weakest, I think they continuously got better until the latest album.
    August 23 11:41 PM
  • OmairSh I see a Riverside rating :D. ADHD is their best album imo, prog metal prowess, def check it out. Their debut is more atmospheric and is also very good, very solid band
    August 23 09:33 PM
  • OmairSh So many subtle time sig changes, pretty cool
    August 23 09:32 PM
  • OmairSh
    August 23 08:59 PM
  • OmairSh Who's in your profile picture? Btw sad news, Reins left Leprous, facebook page has details
    August 8 08:08 PM
  • OmairSh Will check thanks
    August 5 04:06 PM
    August 5 09:43 AM
    August 4 11:55 PM
  • OmairSh His gay impersonation is hilarious Bwooston
    August 2 01:16 AM
  • OmairSh ****ing hell Øystein?'s? impersonations are impeccable
    August 1 02:03 AM
  • MajorStupidity Yeah always good to see another fan of Zero hour/Cynthesis. Anytime you combine Rosvold's vocal work with the Tipton brothers you are guaranteed something great.
    June 25 09:56 PM
  • Trebor. Can you generate a "Nude Tayne"
    June 22 03:59 PM
  • jybt But, Persistence of Visions, The Noble Lie, and much of Release The Deity are incredible to flawless, the production is improved, and Erik's vocals and lyrics are as consistently stellar as ever.
    June 14 01:22 PM
  • jybt Re: ReEvolution's lower rating - It feels somewhat like DeEvolution part 2 but less technical and more ambient, which isn't a bad thing but I loved the more dynamic DeEvolution; it tends to have extraneous parts put in such as the instrumental Convergence, and the bass is definitely less overtly impressive probably because Troy is still recovering from his wrist injury. (No more blazing technical bass work for him at present, and as a consequence, Zero Hour is officially over.)
    June 14 01:21 PM
  • conesmoke you da man spag m/
    May 29 09:23 AM
  • OmairSh Leprous is one of the more interesting bands I've discovered of late, I can't describe it. I mean it is prog metal but...
    May 24 11:24 AM
  • jybt Absolutely excited for ReEvolution! Cynthesis is in my top five anticipated albums; the new Amaseffer, Pantommind (assuming its release as planned, despite the band's dissolution), Images of Eden, and Dream Theater are its four competitors in the prog realm.
    April 26 09:00 PM
  • Hawks I didn't even realize they had something coming out. I'm sure it'll be pretty good.
