Hi everyone

My name's Jaakko and I'm 23 years old. I live in Oulu, which is a city in northern Finland, with my girlfriend and a dacschund.

I started listening to Katatonia when Viva Emptiness came out. So far I only have Viva Emptiness LP, Brave Murder Day LP and The Black Sessions box, but sooner or later I will buy the other albums as well. So much good music, so little money

I'm also a Hi-Fi freak, and though I'm a poor student I have 3000€ stereo system.... Saying this out loud makes me realize how crazy I am

I don't play any instrument anymore, but I listen to music constantly. My taste in music is mainly different kinds of metal, but I do like bands like The Hellacopters and Porcupine Tree as well. At the moment I'm listening to Zyklon's World Ov Worms.

My drinks of preference are beer and whisky. By beer I don't mean pale lagers like Carlsberg, Lapin Kulta, Budweiser and so on, but beers that actually taste of something. I also make some beer myself, since it's a cheap way to get beer that tastes good.

In theory I study mathematics at the local university, but in reality I'm a lazy bugger who would rather just read these forums than study. Hopefully I'll graduate in about a year, but that remains to be seen.

I mostly just read these forums, but if I feel have something worth saying I will say it. Naturally I'm really looking forward to the new Katatonia album.

We have to surely meet at one festival, hopefully where Katatonia also play

Surely we have to meet some day... and the best chance for that would be a festival with Katatonia anyway (which makes sure that at least a few forummembers are there) ... (;

oh yes

not I stirred up ground and sky to find it on the Net starting from a radio operator presentation it seems to me.....but it is not what worries me considering I downloaded the majority of your albums on E-mule but I gradually buy the albums which I find in France, which is not very widespread, considering our very average métal culture... (that's not my fault)... I found only your "Black Session" this week end with live so wonderfull in Poland...I would like to know if you know your dates and the French places that you will visit by advising you the "havana coffee" if you pass in Toulouse or the room of the fetes of Tournefeuilles which are two very good concert halls.....it is pleasant to find a group which is concerned with its fans...my address : Lil_homie_from_31@hotmail.fr .....but english is not my language first thus want to excuse me for the errors of language....tcho

I listen to a lot of other music as well, of course - My Dying Bride is my favourite. Sigur Rós, Pink Floyd, Windir, Anathema, Swallow the Sun, Lacrimas Profundere, and most important; Katatonia, are among the bands who appear in my stereo often these days. I could make a list of great bands but that would have been extremely boring of me.

And, what more? I go to school and I'm planning to become a writer or a music journalist (or preferably, both. I wish myself good luck. ).
Among the other things I like doing, are reading, photographing, reading some more, watching movies, writing, role-playing and other creative activities. Mhm.
Swallow the sun! hell yeah

Okay, I'll introduce myself too with the time I have...
I'm sixteen years old, and I'm from the Netherlands
I hate this country (way too much racism shit about immigrants and stuff like that)but the city Arnhem (Arnheim) is alright... I was born there.
I still go to school. I play drums (six/seven years) and guitar (about one year).
When I finish school, I'm planning to go to someplace in Scandinavia (Norway? Sweden?) for about a year to study music (perhaps I'll stay after that) And it'd be great to learn the language a bit.
I love music, I'm into "metal"-bands like the Devin Townsend Band, Anathema, Swallow the sun, The old dead tree, Tool... and more, but most of all I like Katatonia. I got to know them trough Travis Smith (he's got them on his favorites playlist) and some friend of mine kinda liked the music too.
But I like jazz too(especially to play). And I'm open for pretty much every style of music, as long as there has been put heart into it
that's it for now

There are two kinds of scandinavians out there: Those who are drunkards and those who arent. The latter ones are a tiny, isolated fisher-tribe in northern Norway who can't afford buying booze.

live about 15 minutes south of D.C. in a place called fairfax. 3rd worst traffic in the united states. 86 extra hours a year in traffic. prolly why i love music so much. i used to work in a harley-davidson shop until i mixed my favorite hobby, drinking, with my job. im in college now studying basics and acting. been listenin to kata since 2001ish. dig all music, mostly metal, but rock and electronic. not really any rap, some classical and some 'underground' country. it exists. trust me. i'm a singer until recently in a band. now i jsut sit around awrite acoustic shit and drink.
if you need to know anything else, we'll probably have to start dating.
A.

Just so you know Denmark doesn't have that big of a metal culture. But we drink the most in all of Scandinavia..even more than the Finns

I do not belive that. If there's someone in the world that are drinking MORE than the Finns, I must have misunderstood, well, mostly evertyhing! Finns = sauna, forest, lakes and vodka.

No, not vodka, that would be the russians. Finns drink beer. Trust me, I know And also Koskenkorva, but that's not a vodka, just plain booze. It tastes like turpentine in my opinion but I don't think the taste is the reason why people drink it.

I think I might be pretty much of a stranger for most people here, cause I know nobody, and only post here now and then.

I'm a norwegian girl, 19 years old. Like Jinn, I found Katatonia through Opeth, and my first experience was with Last Fair Deal Gone Down. For the time being, I'm studying art in Bergen, while using the evenings at concerts, bars and books.

Damn, my view of the world is now ruined. =D But thank you for updating me on the finnish alcohol-habits. Now I know more about Finland than before. Hurrah.

Except that many people at least here in Lapland drink vodka ! But yeah, your right that beer is more common around here. Even though booze have got a larger popularity after the prizes started to decrease.
