    Morfeind: That's good to hear. I've only heard the title song and a clip of the first one, but if the rest of the album is as good as the first 2, then I agree that it's definately worthy of top 3 of the year.

    :OMG: It's out??? Wow, I haven't been keeping tabs on it lately. Gotta pick it up amd fast!


    And after seeing Virgin Black live recently (two times in both London AND Toronto, ON)....oh....my....god were they amazing live - all I can think about now is the upcoming album and I have NO IDEA when it's coming out. Some dude at the show told me the band gave him a promo copy of it and there is absolutely NO clean vocals. Uh, needless to say it goes without saying that I'm :headbang: totally anticipating this one.


    Also, the live performance has made me realize what a stunning album Mezzo Forte truly is. I think I prefer it over the new Elend and possibly TIED with PT. So hard to say...

    M3/Alcapoth - You guys won't be disappointed. This was my introduction to the band after being very intrigued by the description I read from another forum. This is definitely one of the best shoegaze related albums I've ever heard with a great black metal feel.

    Alcapoth -- it was cool to meet you in Ontario, man! Those Virgin Black live performances were indeed amazing. I bought the 2CD digipak version of the new album after I saw them for the first time, as the performances showed just how strong an album Requiem - mezzo forte is. "Domine" live spoke enough for that alone.

    I believe the next album to be released in the Requiem trilogy is pianissimo, and it will probably be out in September. That's the more symphonic one, as I understand it. I have a feeling that fortissimo will indeed be harsh and beautiful. I too have heard that it's very heavy.

    The Alcest album isn't out yet, but what has been posted is sounding very good. It'll be released in August. The North American version will be through Profound Lore.

    Also, I had to add the new Shining album to my list. It's surprisingly good. It reminds me of Opeth, Mayhem, and even Katatonia, but has its own new, fresh sound. Still feels like Shining, though.

    Definitely some amazing music this year.
