    Good! I wasn't trying to be insulting, I love Enya but she has her formula and likes to stick to it.

    Anyone into Caladan Brood? Great Summoning clone with Malazan inspired lyrics. Nothing amazing but definitely worth checking out if you like Summoning.

    Sure, their first album is all kinds of epic, in fact I actually prefer this to Summoning (no weird electronic beeping ;) )

    i have a huge soft spot for anyone who has malazan themed lyrics but i'm not really into that whole sound anymore.

    Gonna start the third Malazan book soon. But at the frequency of my reading sessions, it'll take me the better part of a year to finish. Must read more.

    Since I got a smartphone, the amount of time I spend reading actual books has been reduced to perhaps a couple minutes a day, compared to perhaps a couple hours a day in the pre-smartphone era. It's a pity, really.

    I'm about 2/3 through Memories of Ice and so far I don't like it as much as Deadhouse Gates. Something about that desert theme and characters really do it for me.

    I don't mind Caladan Brood (pretty great actually) but I will never for my life understand how you could prefer it to Summoning. Old Mornings Dawn is the best album in the last 10 years atleast and Caladan Brood is a quite nice clone...

    While Caladan Brood is probably easier to get into and has more face value, Summoning just builds up this atmosphere that only they can Summon (...) which you get lost in on a whole other level.

    I still didn't hear the beeping, did anybody else?

    yeah, the first thing i think of when i think of that series is the section with felisin, baudin and heboric crossing the desert. real nasty, fraught, intense stuff. DEADHOUSE GATES is my favourite along with MIDNIGHT TIDES, which i think is probably his most assured piece of writing (and possibly a better starting place than GotM although i've never been sure enough to actually recommend anyone do that). i also love HOUSE OF CHAINS, partly because it begins with an extended introduction to one of my absolute favourite characters. i really think 2 through 6 are gold in general though. i love the whole series and its overarching perspective was both an indispensable comfort and a huge influence over my own, but it definitely gets a little unwieldy after that point. one of these days i'm gonna try the newer stuff.

    Well, for example, Caladan Brood tend to have more melodic vocals (especially choirs) than Summoning, and I prefer a good mix of harsh/clean vocals in this kind of epic metal because clean vocals in the form of chanting and/or choirs tend to give it more of an appropriately-epic feel.

    Amestigon is great. One of the guys from Summoning is the vocalist. Honestly I'm surprised as fuck that I haven't listened to Summoning yet, because I see them mentioned frequently.

    Why haven't you? They're just the #1 band ever all categories.

    Vocalist and drummer were on Deathcrush by Mayhem. Pretty cool old school-sounding stuff:

    Rather good for the ultra-mellow atmoblack variety. Acoustic guitars, synths, overall pretty laid back but solid.
