Indeed. Most of all I hope they get some sort of tour sorted out.

I'm not going to defend Varg as an individual; A lot of people tend to worship the guy. I think he's clearly on the insane side- his extremist attitudes and stuff that he says is enough to turn me off entirely. But he never used racism as his lyrical subject and as for black metal, most of his stuff has been highly atmospheric and moody (even extremely beautiful, this coming from a convicted murderer). He creates memorable music through simplicity and repetition, something that a lot of people tend to miscontrue as "talentless"

It's also interesting to hear the burzum stuff now, seeing as he has completely been blocked from the modern metal trends (and how there's pretty much no real black metal scene today.) "Belus" was tepid offering with a couple standout tracks, "Fallen" is way more interesting with much better songwriting; It will rank up with the more honest albums of 2011.

I don't care what the guy did....nor do I care what any band does outside making their music...

I like the 2 new Burzum albums.

Varg is a nutter, murderer and God knows what else. If he wasn't a musician he'd be reviled by anybody.

I'll admit I've not heard his records mind, but he's not really given me the biggest motivation to. There's a lot of bands on my "to listen to" list before him. And I mean a lot.

I was joking on the Temple of the Smoke deal.

Temple of the Dog is long gone. I believe they were a one album and done band just to commemorate Andrew Wood's death.

These are what I hope for:

Opeth: It's been 3 years, and they've said they're entering the studio and aiming for a fall 2011 release.

Katatonia: Not likely, since Viva - TGCD was a 3 year wait, and TGCD - NITND was also a 3 year wait. Still, I'm hoping for a new release since in the fall.

Mastodon: It's been 2 years, and I haven't really heard much about them lately besides scoring the soundtrack for Jonah Hex which I can't seem to find anywhere. So I assume they're locked away in the studio.

Porcupine Tree: Steven Wilson is his own musical laxative. It just flows out of him. If not Porcupine Tree, it'll be his solo project, Blackfield, No-Man, the Akerfeldt/Wilson project, or something completely different.

Trivium: Fuck the haters, I love them. They're in the studio now and I think 2011 is a safe bet.

Krallice: New album is confirmed for April. They are my favorite black metal band in existence. Nobody makes black metal like they do, majestic and terrifying at once, long songs with fully-realized ideas.

There's a few.

a couple to add to the list

40 Watt Sun (the lead singer from Warning's new band, havent heard anything but since the last excellent Warning album and the break up of the band, I'll be really excited if it's along the same lines)

Alternative 4 (New project by Duncan Patterson. Not too impressed by his Ion stuff, but I think this is supposed to be heavier)

Iced Earth (best time to make a good comeback)

For Iced Earth...this is do or die. I pretty much don't for anything since Horror Show, but since this won't be a concept album, it might come out better. The past two albums were stale and boring as hell. He got Barlow back...now please bring back the galloping Iron Metallica riffs!

Agreed! Even horror show was a letdown imo and they haven't been the same since - ripper was a bad choice and I believe the last album was written before barlow rejoined. I think the band realizes that it is a do or die situation

Porcupine tree is a hit or miss band for me, but blackfield is all miss...I can't see what is so great about them.

josh freese you mean, but that's okay. Josh has a new release coming out soon. But I don't know why i'm even mentioning it because it is some indy rock/emo bullshit, i think its his solo stuff anyway
