    Supposedly there's going to be a new Orgy cd this year. Vapor Transmission is one of the best cds of all time, which also happens to be their only good album, but who knows they could make another good one.

    Just got Ihsahn's new album, 'angL', yesterday, and I've been listening to it non-stop. What a great album. I've read some posts around here saying that this one's not up to par with 'The Adversary', that it's less adventurous or whatever... I've got to say I disagree. It does have a different tone, though. I think it's a bit stranger overall, and more melancholy. Also, Ihsahn doesn't do his King Diamond falsettos much, if at all, here - to the album's credit, I think. His lower key vocals sound fantastic on here. And then there's the amazing 'Unhealer', where Mikael kicks major ass. Honestly, I hope Opeth's new one is as good as this. I guess I'll see next Tuesday, eh?

    \m/ IHSAHN! \m/

    Ihsahn will surely be in my top 10 for the year. I keep forgetting I have the album, but it has some great tracks.

    Definitely agreed. I actually listened to this album in full last night and it's really good.
    Better than Adversary.

    I'll give it some more attention, I remember I liked the song with Akerfeldt in it.

    I thought he misused Mike in that song. Those high sort of forced vocals ain't exactly his best attribute.

    Ihsahn, Opeth and, above all, Anathema, are the only new albums i am looking forward to so far..
    The older i get the less good music i find it seems.

    However, they are soon going to re release unanimateds two albums, so one can finaly get them, and those are probably going to be my most played this year.

    Same here, but so far this has been a pretty good year I must say.
    The originals are not that hard to get, don't you have them? Anyway, I'll buy the re-issues cause they apparently feature some cool bonusses, demos etc.

    I sold my originals once.. regret it pretty much now..
    The ones i have seen cost a bit, so i´ll just settle for the re releases.

    The new Moonsorrow - Tulimyrsky E.P is really good.
    And with 68 minutes this ep has an awesome running time :D
    Interesting "For whom the bell tolls" cover!

    I'd like to hear new Ihsahn stuff also. I liked his debut after a few spins. Some really great parts in it.

    Thanks for reminding me, I really like Moonsorrow.

    Communic from Norway have released another fantastic album! Definitely another highlight of the year :)

    Still waiting for Watershed...

    I'm actually slightly disappointed by new Communic. They're really watering out their approach. Still good music, I've just heard better on the other two albums.

    As of now, I have a feeling that these will be my top 5 of the first half of the year:

    Ashes Divide- Keep Telling Myself It's Alright
    The Daysleepers- Drowned In A Sea Of Sound
    Klimt 1918- Just In Case We'll Never Meet Again (Soundtrack For The Cassette Generation)
    M83- Saturdays = Youth
    Scar Symmetry- Holographic Universe

    Now, I still haven't heard the new Klimt 1918 and Scar Symmetry albums in their entirety. But if what I've heard is any indication, they will definately be in the top 5 of this half of the year. I'm also anticipating the new Sigur Ros album, but I haven't heard enough to compare it to the other 5. Honestly though, I really have no idea how the rest of the year will shape out. These albums are excellent, but it's going to be really difficult to come up with my top 10 at the end of the year with so many good albums on the way.

    I'm currently looking forward to albums by the following bands: The American Dollar, Anathema, Deftones, En Declin, Entwine, The Eternal, Evergrey, Into Eternity, Mew, Orphaned Land, Rapture, SaraLee, While Heaven Wept, and The Wounded.

    Yeah, mine were just from what was already released.

    I'm also looking forward to quite a few, too.
