    I have no idea why this band gets the attention it does. It's so dull and toothless, I've heard heavier thunderstorms.

    Well maybe because it has so much atmosphere. If you want heavy stuff, listen to Marduk or something...

    It doesn't even have that, it's just boring. The thunderstorm thing was just to say how "there" this band is, it's too limp wristed.

    I'm sorry, I thought I was on a forum, but I guess not. Everyone is all hugs and high fives until someone disagrees.

    There's just no point in saying that a band is boring and worthless, without stating why or anything objective/constructive, in a thread about that band. Obviously the thread starter likes them and wants to hear from other people who share his view or have something positive or interesting to add. If you don't, why waste everyone's time?

    That's like saying "You can share your opinion, as long as I agree with it". The thread starter can like them all he wants, I'm not stopping him, but I don't get why people make these threads about a band and then get all uppity when someone has something negative to say about them. If you don't want someone disagreeing with you, you shouldn't be on a forum in the first place, you're going to get opinions from both sides regardless. That "If you have nothing positive to say, don't say anything" thing doesn't really fly.

    I never said you could share your opinion. I'm not saying don't say anything if it,s not positive, but at least give some interesting comment on the band. "They bore me. They're not heavy enough" is not interesting.

    There isn't much else to say, it's just lifeless music. The kind of stuff you can't straight up hate, because it's too ho-hum.

    Ho-hum , now that is totally interesting and describes their music well. Almost as well as "dull and toothless" or "there" or "limp wristed" :lol:

    Do these sayings have any real meaning?

    I'm not a fanboy to any stretch of the imagination. I've heard the album maybe twice. I was just hoping to find some kind of stimulating discussion about them. I guess that was too much to expect from the internet. Anyways, I have better things to do. Carry on...

    Excellent band, and I am glad to hear he is recording new material. I look forward to it greatly.

    As for the thread-spam....
    Not everyone likes everything, but the faux-elitism in the metal community is laughable. If you don't like something, why bother bashing it in a thread that is obviously about the band in a positive light? Is it that important that we know that you don't like them? Does it validate you to mock something that others hold dear? (don't answer, the questions are rhetorical) Regardless, arguing about it is complete rubbish, and a waste of time.

    I love the last track "Tir Nan Og"...very amazing with the piano.
    Some of the album sounds very similar to Agalloch which could be easily avoided into something a more original for the acoustic/melancholic sound...but it's still a great CD. I have it.

    I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I really enjoyed Souvenirs d'un autre monde. Great driving music. Looking forward to the new stuff as well.
