    Oh I forgot Marillions masterpiece "Marbles"; what an amazing album, what an amazing concert, what amazing vocals. If someone can compete with Jonas' expressing emotions by singing, then it's "H". Steve "H" Hogarth

    I'm not into their old stuff but they sound raw and I still feel the melody. I would recommend it :headbang:

    I must completely agree that Blut Aus Nord- the work which transforms god- is (for me) the best release of the year.

    How is the new Paatos album? I'm hearing some samples and it sounds really interesting...I saw there's also a DVD, someone can tell me more about it? Is the DVD worth to buy? I can't find many info on their official site unfortunately....

    @ether: the album is amazing, really impressing work they did. i don't know anything about the dvd though, cause i got the album as promo release. but really every song is beautiful and goes some kind of very "deep"... whether with dvd or not you have to buy this record.

    if you understand german, you could read my review (if you are interested in it)...

    It's a highly delicate and atmospheric album, well worth hearing...and while the Blut Aus Nord is actually late 2003, it's still an excellent release, one of the more forward thinking BM in recent memory...

    Ive been racking my brain to think of a decent alblum that was released this year and since Blut Aus Nord was actually not released this year I would have to say that the only other thing that has truly impressed me is Subterreanean Masquerades ep -Temporary Psychotic state- Check it out. I finally met Tomer and Jake at the Katatonia show in june and got my copy signed, they are really cool guys too. Paul from Nov. Doom doing vocals. The bassplayer from Agalloch. They will be releasing their full length cd soon. I seriously recommend it. Oddly enough they have alot of violin in it, which is something I find incredibly rare. The REAL violin is mixed perfectly and compliments the music instead of taking away from it like the usual violin parts you hear in some bands (usually keyboard shit).

    of what i've heard, these are the best 3 IMO:
    Anata - under a stone with no inscription
    Vehemnece - helping the world to see
    Today is the Day - kiss the pig

    MDB is close, though.

    Unfortunately the only 2004 release I've gotten is MDB' 'Songs of darkness' :oops: , so I guess it is the best.


    mayhem - chimera is in the mail though so at least there is a challenger. :p
