  • Metalstyles Sounds good man. Strive to be another Rosetta though, and I will literally do anything you want lol (they've been my favorite band ever since I decided to look into A Determinism of Morality).
    February 9 08:30 PM
  • Metalstyles So what you're saying is that you're an active member in a band? Or are you just thinking about it at this stage? Either way, that's cool in my book.
    February 9 03:50 PM
  • Metalstyles Oh and, do check out Ghost Brigade - Until Fear no Longer Defines Us. That I think is definitely your thing :)
    February 9 11:58 AM
  • Metalstyles If you want you can give the new Avatar - Black Waltz album a go. I'm not sure if you're into that kind of stuff (experimental melodeath/hard rock hybrid with electronic influences that comes across as rather avant-garde), but you never know. Also, if you like stoner rock, the new Orange Goblin is cool.
    February 9 11:57 AM
  • Metalstyles Hey man, sup? Haven't seen you around much anymore
    February 8 07:26 PM
  • BallsToTheWall Raven Dark- Berustet Av Kriegsdronnet for some ld school Russian black metal.Burial-Loss. Oldschool Florida tech death metal in the vein of Atheist and Death.Will find some more cool s*** later.

  • cb123 thankx man, song was pretty decent, i think i tried to find some of their stuff before but couldnt find anything anywhere
    August 13 01:49 AM
  • balcaen is that their best track? 'cause they're interesting sounding but it's not really my thing. sounds really awkward, heh.
    August 6 03:26 AM
  • Vooligan Sounds good man, ill check them out.
    July 24 10:55 AM
  • acorncheese well that was pretty damn unique sounding. thanks dude. i'll look into it.
    May 26 03:56 AM
  • Metalstyles Awesome man, good to hear. Alas, the chances of me seeing Nonpoint live are rather slim. For that to happen, they'd need to come to Europe, and sadly, I'm not sure that is something that will happen anytime soon.

  • fr33convict If you 5 this I'll give you some rec's ;)Teeheehee Rainbow - Stab Brain Bubbles
    February 13 04:39 AM
  • Maniac! Hello, sir.
    December 21 01:04 PM
  • LG Song was ace, you got me pegged proper. I happened to see you rated FTM's debut as a 3.5...not cool bro, you definitely need to rise that rating immediately.
    October 8 10:21 PM
  • SeaAnemone thanks man, I really liked that song, the name sounds familiar but I can't find much info about em... I'll check em out when I have a chance though :)
    October 8 03:59 AM
  • ShadowRemains i have checked that out, i thought they were pretty good, i might get their album(s), thx for the rec as always
    October 6 05:17 AM
  • ShadowRemains i think i'll take up on that offer for more tool-alikes :P
    October 6 05:02 AM
  • LG Bands not bad. But once again the intro is the highlight of the song.
    October 5 07:21 PM
  • ShadowRemains even on mediafire and the like i can't find it...
    October 4 11:35 PM
  • ShadowRemains i found it strange how Bound was a song with a video, and Vessel is the album it's on and i couldn't find it anywhere...
    October 4 11:32 PM
  • ShadowRemains i couldn't find "Vessel" anywhere. I found "A New Decay" and its good, but I can't find Vessel. (Boil albums)
    October 4 11:14 PM
  • ShadowRemains k will check those out, thanks bro
    October 4 04:42 AM
  • ShadowRemains hey man do you any Tool-esque recs for me? I checked out Prisma and Rishloo and they both are excellent...
    October 4 02:22 AM
  • bailar11 enrique list is up now
    July 13 12:58 AM
  • Wizard Not bad but tbqh, melo-death bores the hell out of me.
    July 9 12:40 PM
  • acorncheese In Powerban's obscure recommendations, I now trust.
    July 7 07:32 PM
  • BallsToTheWall Ain't gonna happen sunshine.Already have the album, Kadavergehorsam, Der Tote Trakt and Sclaf is ****ing beast.
    July 7 03:56 PM
  • BallsToTheWall I agree. You might like this band.http://www.myspace.com/arkheth
    July 7 03:29 PM
  • Motiv3 vocals are need of repair but everything else is very impressive.
    July 2 04:47 PM
  • tombits that was ****ing cool, it's got a real elliott smith vibe to it. i'll definitely be checking it out some more, thanks man.
    June 30 05:15 AM
  • Relinquished Hope they don't reach my blog then, I got "Memory of a Dream" on it. Wonder why the band would do that if they're split-up.
    June 25 04:49 AM
  • Relinquished Argh I lost that "0" album. Can you give me a link for it?
    June 25 04:30 AM
  • Relinquished I just brought it up cuz my fiancee heard me play one of the songs from The Second Wave and asked why is Bono in a post-metal band. Cult of Luna is due for an album, I love that band and the book was cool albeit kind of pointless.
    June 25 04:06 AM
  • Relinquished do you get some sort of U2 vibe from the singer of Khoma?
    June 25 03:34 AM
  • Relinquished the word deion pops up when you say descr.iption, and that's cool I really liked Vaalbara, so sludgy with those riffs
    June 25 03:09 AM
  • AnotherBrick listening to it. the vocals have a weird bo burnham vibe to it
    June 25 02:02 AM
  • Relinquished hey man. the list I was talking about earlier is supposed to be one of those huge lists talking about all the bands within the genre (there aren't many so they'll fit within 100 items haha). I've asked a few other guys but forgot to get to you and I got bands like the ones you put on your list. I just want you to give me some unknown or obscure bands so I won't forget about them too.
    June 25 01:10 AM
  • Relinquished yeah man, the voyager/monolith split rules. too bad supercontinent disbanded, they showed so much promise.
    June 24 09:11 PM
  • bailar vooligan and lisbongirls have you as a neighbor. ill be damned if i ever find anyone as my muscial neighbor. considering if you look at my 5's.....
    June 23 03:32 AM
  • bailar gkad to hear. but enrique feels your pain. though i just rate troll 5'susually, it just takes too much time to find all the stuff i have listened to already. so if im in the thread i might rate it. plus i dont want to be musical neighbors with my legit account.
    June 23 03:04 AM
  • bailar hello. how is your stay on this website good sir? i notice you have good taste in prog. enrique approves.
    June 23 02:54 AM
  • bailar enrique likes what he sees. and he has 20/20 vision.
    June 21 07:00 AM

  • Maniac! inv sent. feel free to post anything you may have written and stored on your hard drive. oh and go ahead and remove your email comment too ;)
    June 1 12:42 PM
  • Maniac! The more, the merrier. I would love to have a bunch of writers. I'm thinking about writing music reviews, that I cant put on my audible oddities, on the media blog too. So in other words, go make an account and message me the email you used so i can invite you :D
    June 1 12:31 PM
  • Maniac! they are all in their early stages, still getting material together. thepalestmexican is helping with the media blog, useless opinions is just my personal stuff. and audible oddities will have a new review soon. Like I said, they are all fairly new.
    June 1 12:14 PM
  • Maniac! http://maniacsmedia.blogspot.com/ | http://useless-opinions.blogspot.com/ | http://audibleoddities.blogspot.com/
    June 1 12:13 PM
  • Maniac! Oh well, perhaps you could take a look at mine and tell me what you think?
    June 1 12:01 PM
  • Maniac! not too shabby...been expanding my writing beyond the walls of sputnik. I've got 3 blogs going on now. Do you have a blogspot account?
    June 1 11:34 AM
  • Maniac! hallo sir, long time no speak. how you been?
    May 30 02:38 PM
  • Metalstyles just remembered that I had to report back about Satory. It's pretty cool, and definitely good. I only wish it would be longer. Oh well, I hope they put out a full length soon, because the EP definitely sounded promising.
    May 21 02:49 PM
  • AnotherBrick hey what albums by Kyte and Rivulets?
    May 18 02:39 AM
  • renegadestrings fun fact: i saw ur profile pic on collegehumor a few days ago. she probably doesn't know why that pic is hot, but damn, i do. i'm a closet FFVII nerd
    May 12 12:07 PM
  • qwe3 if you want some post rock check this list out http://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?memberid=430243
    May 9 07:27 PM
  • Metalstyles k, cool. I'll finish spinnin the new Nonpoint once again and then I'll give it a go. I'll report back about it in a few days (or less, depending on how "easy" of a listen it is)
    May 9 06:09 PM
  • Metalstyles cool man, thanks for the rec, I'll aquire it now.
    May 9 06:00 PM
  • alsid i don't, my little homophobe
    May 9 12:03 PM
  • alsid in fact, no
    May 8 07:24 PM
  • Captain North Well, I know that now. xD
    May 8 05:17 AM
  • Captain North What the hell, I downloaded the two parts and they're the same thing.
    May 8 04:51 AM
  • Captain North Sweet, thanks brah.
    May 8 03:15 AM
  • Maniac! mmmm nice music
    May 5 03:32 PM
  • Maniac! listening, but the title is lame
    May 5 03:31 PM
  • Ire you mean that wasn't you last night?!?
    April 25 10:00 PM
  • Ire sounds like we're going to intercourse each other
    April 23 06:05 AM
  • Wizard Sounds like a good band you reviewed there.
    April 1 01:15 PM
  • Wizard Send it my way and I will give it a lookover. When you get it done, ask me for my email address or give me yours.
    March 17 12:24 PM
  • Wizard Powerban, I can give pointers if you want?
    March 16 03:29 PM
  • Wizard I could do without the vocals for this band. However, the post-metal parts are done extremely well. I expect a review of this very soon hahahaha.
    March 15 12:31 PM
  • Wizard Thanks, sounds interesting, I will get back to you with my thoughts.
    March 15 02:14 AM
  • TMobotron Got held up with school and other stuff finally got around to checking out The Coma Recovery. Picked up the whole album, not totally sure what my final opinion is but there's definitely a lot of awesome going on there. Definitely gonna need some more spins.
    February 13 03:17 AM
  • SeaAnemone I'm checking it out now!
    February 12 06:08 PM
  • TMobotron I've actually heard good things about them so it's on my list of things to get. I'll check em out when I get home.
    February 7 11:49 PM
  • AnotherBrick wow man...that song was ****ing amazing...is all that album like that?
    February 7 05:04 AM
  • TMobotron You made a list w/ The Paper Chase on it and I said Id check it out. I listened to it a little then never came back to it until about a week ago, and holy s*** is that weird but also awesome, so thanks for turning me onto that.
    February 7 03:46 AM
  • Avirov Busy busy busy. Working on review is hard when I still don't quite understand how I even feel about the album.
    February 1 04:49 PM
  • Progmaster85 Cool, I'll check it out, thanks.
    January 31 04:56 PM
  • Progmaster85 dude that's awesomeee rec me some albums in full though I like that stuff
    January 31 04:43 PM
  • FadeToBlack oh yeah that was the other thing I got, Nord by Year Of No Light lol. I've got so much to listen to atm
    January 31 04:19 PM
  • FadeToBlack I have Cult Of Luna's stuff, and I'll def get that Rosetta album. Any more?
    January 31 04:14 PM
  • FadeToBlack yeah it was combined together. I also just got some Pelican, Mouth Of The Architects, Battle Of Mice and something which I can't remember lol. Any other recs?
    January 31 04:05 PM
  • FadeToBlack thanks man i just downloaded Galliean Satellites
    January 31 03:55 PM
  • Progmaster85 wow dude... that was a cool song holy crap
    January 31 03:51 PM
  • Progmaster85 Lol I will because I really want to get into them. Any recs for bands I don't have based on my tastes?
    January 31 03:19 PM
  • Progmaster85 and I can't seem to get into Isis besides wavering radiant, and I don't know why
    January 31 03:12 PM
  • Progmaster85 sorry Neutralthunder12 is my friend and we were making him an account at my house, so I commented on your wall from his name by accident sorry.
    January 31 03:11 PM
  • NeutralThunder12 Oh my god, it is absolutely brilliant. The only reason it is not a 5 for me yet is because there was one section of one song for about 5 minutes that I thought was sloppy, but I may be wrong, I have only listened once and have to go back again. But good to see you rated it, it's phenomenal. What's your fave album out of curiosity?
    January 31 02:52 PM
  • Progmaster85 and Pokemon Red is epic as hell also
    January 31 02:44 PM
  • Progmaster85 Yeah thanks, but understand, I'm a debater so I always argue with everyone because I enjoy it. Now, I am absolutely aware that I am more pretentious than a John Petrucci solo (love Dream Theater, of course) but I enjoy arguing. And also, I see under video games you have Metal Gear Solid. Snake Eater is probably my favorite PS2 game EVER.
    January 31 02:44 PM
  • Progmaster85 I only did it because he made one for me, just thought I'd make one letting him know that he annoys me even though I don't personally hate him as he hates me. If you would have seen, he made a similar list trolling my first review. And by the way, you have a good taste in music. Cheers for rating Rishloo.
    January 31 02:39 PM
  • eternium I may do that.
    January 30 12:42 AM
  • Relinquished Yeah I heard it already man. I'm becoming real knowledgeable of post-metal.
    January 23 05:03 PM
  • Avirov i despise neurosis
    January 22 05:08 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Crap, that backfired!
    January 17 01:05 AM
  • Dreamsoffew I was trying to inspire jealousy, darn it! Mate of mine didn't get to make it to BDO, when I heard I met him he flipped lol. Didn't catch their set but I got dragged over to the signing booth.
    January 17 12:17 AM
  • Dreamsoffew You're digging Fear Factory I see. I don't wanna rub it in but I did meet 2 days ago :)
    January 17 12:01 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Haha, i'm really digging Atlas now. Their cool hipster charms are not lost on me.
    January 16 11:51 PM
  • Dreamsoffew Ooooo I wouldn't put them that high, but they're certainly amazing! Something else that needs to be rated haha. I know what you mean, you get distracted and then you turn back to the screen and what you've typed is still in the post box. Frustrates me!
    January 14 08:25 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Haha, it's fine. Though I was a little surprised when I went back to the main page and I had 3 shoutbox posts! Downloading it now :)
    January 14 07:22 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Just got the 2nd post. I listen to a bit, but definitely more the main bands i'd say. As I said before, i've got a mate who works in a music store, plus mates in bands who hear about more bands than me and pass it on, but we don't get too much out our way. And i'm fine with instrumentals.
    January 14 06:40 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Like The Cure you say? Gimmie gimmie gimmie lol!
    January 14 06:37 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Sounds good! Cult Of Luna are okay, in fact there's still a whole bunch of albums I need to rate.
    January 14 05:30 AM
  • Dreamsoffew That I am, i've never heard of them coming over here, but I could be wrong. Oh, and please do! :)
    January 13 08:55 AM
  • Dreamsoffew No I haven't, but that's one of my fav songs by them! I wanna see them live :(
    January 13 07:50 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Yeah, a mate of mine who works for a record store has it on order, no one's really heard of them out here. Sunshine Daylight is so amazing, whole album kinda has this fragile beauty to it. Like a female Bon Iver almost.
    January 13 05:40 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Okay, i'm in love.... thank yo so, so much!!
    January 12 11:13 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Awww, you're a legend! I'll let you know what I think of it.
    January 12 05:44 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Okay, I might need your help in trying to find it lol.
    January 12 05:31 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Oh really, what nationality are they?
    January 12 04:10 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Hey, now that sounds right up my alley! Thank you!!
    January 12 03:59 AM
  • Dreamsoffew First you try to set me up, now you're rec'ing me music, awesome!! Who do they sound like?
    January 12 03:49 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Huh?
    January 12 03:43 AM
  • Dreamsoffew I might just spam your shoutbox anyway!
    January 12 03:37 AM
  • Foxhound Nah just to be funny although that video does get a lot right.
    January 12 03:10 AM
  • Foxhound Sweat break up video, thanks I laughed and am about to send it to my girl right now.
    January 12 02:57 AM
  • cirq thats def my real name ;)
    December 28 04:22 AM
  • Curse. Yeah most of those albums ruled my early teens
    December 13 03:39 AM
  • Curse. You should check out my nu-metal list. That guy totally copied me
    December 13 03:32 AM
  • Deviant. Corrupted bro, i'll check out Burn's now. Thanks though man
    December 8 03:42 AM
  • Deviant. Mind if I get that link bro? Could be legit, Burns last fm is all Mudvayne so it's out somewhere
    December 8 03:07 AM
  • KritikalMotion Also check out Orbs, taken them forever but they finally released their first album. It's dan briggs from btbam, adam fisher and clayton holyoak from fear before and Ashley Ellyllon from abigail williams. its like progressive space rock. lol. amazing s***. vocals might be a bit weird though unless you like fear before ( namely the always open mouth )
    December 7 06:37 PM
  • KritikalMotion woah completely missed your shout. yeah ive been recced it a few times but i keep forgetting. will pick it up now!
    December 7 05:34 PM
  • Gyromania Wow, you have awesome taste in music. Yndi Halda is definitely a 5, and Other Truths is an easy 4
    December 6 11:12 AM
  • Dreamsoffew Hold up, so lemme get this straight. You have no idea who I am, you have a vague understanding of my musical tastes because of ratings (which aren't finished), and you think you know me well enough to assume that because I rated a few Isis albums highly that i'm just chucking out ratings wily nily?
    December 4 11:05 PM
  • Prophet178 Russian Circles is my favorite post-metal band, its all instrumental though. Year of No Light is good too, I've been digging Sinking Steps...Raising Eyes lately too, check them out: ://www.purevolume.com/sinkingstepsrisingeyes
    November 28 09:03 AM
  • Prophet178 Ah good to hear, I guess the vocals grew on you judging from your 4.5.
    November 28 07:18 AM
  • Observer Alright cool. I gave "Drown..." a listen, and from what I can tell, it will probably be a grower. Thanks for the recommendation.
    November 27 06:21 PM
  • Observer Hey, thanks for the recommendation. I'll give them a try and tell you what I think. Any particular album I should try first?
    November 27 11:48 AM
  • dragonaut Hey check my new review and see what you think!
