My criticism was just that I find metaphors are meaningless when a reviewer describes a band. That may have been what you imagined, but it might not be what I imagine. I'd rather hear the music described with adjectives that are applicable to music ("the kick drums are loud and thudding"... "the guitars sound powerful with some nice high leads to add variety"...). It wasn't that I thought reviews are not needed due to subjectivity, I just thought it was hard to understand what that band sounded like through your description. I enjoy reviews a lot, especially when I think the reviewer has good taste, which I think you usually do.

Sorry if this sounded harsh but that's the reaction I was left with.

I really do not subscribe to the notion that a review necessarily has to describe the music. I know that that sounds counterintuitive in some ways, but there are ways to convey one's feelings about music other than obvious depictions of the music itself. Of course, it all depends on your audience and whether or not you really give a crap what your audience thinks. I personally wouldn't really give a crap what my audience thinks.

May I please recommend to you fine people Wall of Sleep (Hungary) and their latest opus "...and Hell Followed with Him" (available on IHate Records).

Rather excellent, catchy doom in the blue collar vein of The Obsessed and Vitus but with a muscular, modern production and very chunky riffage.

ceen it

I haven't had the opportunity to pick it up yet, though. Hopefully early next year. I'm well behind on I Hate's catalogue. I still haven't even gotten the new Centurions Ghost yet.

Indeed. Too bad not everyone who reads reviews are English majors. I mean no sarcasm by that statement.

The Foreshadowing are a great new gothic doom metal band from Italy who have a debut album out now on Candlelight called 'Days of Nothing'. I really enjoy it.

Listen to Nucleus Torn

fans of Agalloch, October Falls, and things of that nature should definitely check this band out.

Seriously; I was only two then, but I've seen enough posters from that era to get some nostalgia.

For some reason, I can't get enough of Immortal's "Grim and Frostbitten Kingdoms". Such a perfect icy black metal song.

Diabolical Fullmoon Mysticism is, without a doubt, their best record.

Been listening to Isole's newest, Bliss of Solitude, quite a lot lately. Pretty fuckin excellent, a lot like Candlemass though with more atmospheric vocals and a focus on more melodic riffing. I'll be getting this once it comes out.

either one is good, but I prefer Pure Holocaust cause its faster, which suits the atmospheric guitars better.
