...sounds soooo much better than the last one. matt barlow FTMFW
Barlow is infinitely greater than Ripper, but Jon still cannot write a fucking memorable song.
WOW! i did not know Barlow had came back. Where was I???? last i seen them play was 3-4 years ago when they had Ripper. IMO i liked Barlow better.
He rejoined just recently and they've got some tour dates coming up soon.
I'll end up seeing them at ProgPower
lately that has been true - mostly. there were a few ones off of the last album that are truly good. but i think the apex of Jon's writing is somewhere between Something Wicked and Horror Show ( those were awesome IE albums IMHO)
holy shit...not having a computer fucking sucks, did they just release a new album with Barlow? I didn't check out Something Wicked 2 due to Ripper, how was that album?
Framing Armageddon (something wicked 2) was ... meh. there were a few good songs, but most of it was ruined by Ripper's limited range. when he screams and he's given a good vocal line he's good, but i don't think Jon could write well for him.
the latest one "Crucible of Man", isn't officially out yet but it think it's alot better. the writing is darker, and in that old, familiar Jon Schaffer style we know and love
It's too mid paced. I think Barlow sounds great though
Cool, will definitely buy that shit when it comes out. What else has metal crew been listening to lately?
Darkthrone - FOAD
Cobalt - Eater of Birds
Moonspell - Night Eternal
I still haven't gotten that album by Darkthrone. I've been listening to a lot of Deeds of Flesh - Crown of Souls and Urgehal - Through Thick Fog Til Death. Finally got a fucking computer again, woot!
i think i'm the only person that actually liked it. all the NEKRO KVLT fans cried bloody murder. that, Aura Noir's The Merciless and Cobalt have filled my old school black metal needs for quite a while.
Nah, 1349 is a huge fan of that CD, as in the OT User 1349, I like the Cult is Alive, which was crust like an shit. I'm pretty open when it comes to metal and ignore all the "kvlt" bullshit. Blut Aus Nord reminds me a lot of old Darkthrone too, I just got into them.
i actually don't like older Darkthrone Cult is Alive and Sardonic Wrath were my only favorites until FOAD.
yeah i gave up even explaining my metal tastes, as i like everything from Iced Earth and Dimmu to Aura Noir and Nevermore
Same here, I only have Stormblast by Dimmu Borgir, the old edition, not that shitty remake. Yeah I like a lot of varied shit, Death, Emperor, Helloween, Nasum...Symphony X and yeah, I'm sure we could both go on for days.
aaaaaahhhhh.... i loved the remake. :ducks: "Broderskapets Ring" is what hooked me. but it is probably because i heard the remake before the original... besides you can't deny that the keyboards are better....
I don't know, I liked Sorgens Kammer Del II, but yeah, it was ok I suppose, you like Limbonic Art, they're probably one of my favorite Symphonic Black Metal bands.
