    honestly this is one of the reasons why i like ND and Woods of Ypres so much is the variety of sounds. You guys can go from something that crushes you with the heaviness and follow it with something that is almost brooding. its the variety that keeps me listening.

    I always enjoyed their music. Not sure if the band is still active.

    Woods Of Ypres are a very good example, you're right. They go from something very doom-y to something black metal-ish to then a song like "Wet Leather" which has elements of Finnish hard rock to it, yet every song sounds unmistakably like WoY throughout. That's part of why I love that band.

    Larry - I understand how you guys might be frustrated by my statement. As I said though, I was speaking solely from seeing them live. I am not familiar with them on disc. I can certainly see how those not as familiar with the ND catalog might say the same about you guys.

    Though, your live sets are always a good representation of your current sound. For example, you probably aren't going to whip out "Aurora's Garden" live anytime soon. (Not that I would mind it).

    I kind of had a similar reaction to the time you guys played with UneXpect. Good band, but it was hard to relate to their sound, not being familiar with them, because everything was so different.

    My comment was more about not being able to relate to Moonspell based on how they represented themselves live, which is night and day different from ND going from "Rain" to "Autumn Reflection" The core is still there. I didn't connect to any core Moonspell sound, from their live set.

    Exactly!
    And this is what I love about ND as well.
    The core sound is always present, regardless of what direction a song might take.

    Barren Earth are very good.
    I discovered them when browsing the Peaceville site a while back.
    They are touring with Finntroll soon I think.
