    Bjorn has been playing Moonshield for nearly 20 years so I'd hope he can do the melody well :D

    The Anders myth of crowds not reacting to old songs busted again. They seem to be enjoying it - and so they should, Moonshield wins over every other song in that setlist. Very cool to see Jester's Dance through in there too - but could they not have put a Whoracle or Colony song in there instead? Maybe Anders needed a break.

    Btw, I'm usually the first one to slate Anders, but he sounds fine in this performance. Cleans are poor as usual, but his growls/screams are alright.

    I wonder how much pain he is suffering because of forcing his voice

    It really looks as if he is the one not enjoying the song.

    Didn't jesper play the lead melody live? I feel like I saw Bjorn playing the rhythm on the used and abused dvd...

    But now that I think about it, that Seoul Korea 2002 show I believe Bjorn was playing the lead. Not sure. Have to watch it again

    That Moonshield version was quite nice. Anders not being whiny hipster and all.

    But... Joe is too robotic. That song would really shine with a good drummer. Some ghost notes, nice groove...

    And why is Bjorn raping the wah pedal all the time? We're talkinh Kirk H. level now.

    So.. Long time no see guys, hope all is well. I know most of you guys dont like Battles but i'll ask anyway. Which songs do you still listen from the album, or any of them grew on you?

    The End is the only song I listen to at all. I've forgotten what most of the others even sound like.

    Haven't listened in several months, I ate all the meat off the first month or so, haven't really felt an urge to go back... yet.

    Yesterday I listened to the full TJR album while working. First time I've listened in a while. During the first song I started thinking "Man, I love this song." Second song, "Yeah this is perfect." Third song, "Damn this is my favorite." Fourth song, "Oh yeah, this is my favorite." LOL made it to the last track on the normal album and realized THE WHOLE DAMN ALBUM IS MY FAVORITE. Then the extended edition live tracks and Goliaths Disarm their Davids started and I was like "holy shit I love this!!!!"

    Yeah, it's irrational to want TJR2. But god damn, TJR is a masterpiece. Been listening to this for like 17 years now? Will never get old. TJR(+EP)+Whoracle+Colony is my holy trinity.

    I know it wasn't healthy for you but Anders your voice on TJR is BEAST!! No later album compares. Total animal.

    From this perspective it looks kinda silly
    Wallflower is pretty much the only track I feel like listening to.

    Cosmic Genesis was the next album, better production, still somewhat folky but a little different and also came the crazy English lyrics about space and philosophy... which continued thereafter. Give it a shot.

    Mr. V got super progressive as he was pursuing a graduate (PhD) in physics(?). He went all clean vocals for a while (sound familiar? But he can sing). I think lately he brought back the blackened vocals but the ultra clean production has kept me from giving them a good listen. I'll probably revisit now.

    He was one of the "big 3" of Borknagar. Garm (Ulver, Arcturus), ICS Vortex (Dimmu Borgir, Arcturus), Mr. V. I think some of the other members are intermixed with those progressive black bands as well.

    My knee jerk reaction is not good but on second thought at least they aren't recruiting washed up nu metal guys.

    Well, Anders fills that role just fine...

    So when are we going to hear Jespers new stuff?
