    Yep! And by far the best of the year for me!

    Mercenary is an absolutely horrid band.

    Illnath: I agree about the new Mercenary. I love the band, but I could hardly find any redeeming qualities in Architect Of Lies. I hate to say this, since I had such high hopes for the new album.

    Stefan86: If you don't mind me asking, what is it about Mercenary that you don't like?

    I'd have to agree.

    Man, that Portishead was such a let-down for me. With nearly all of the time in the world to come up with a creative follow-up to their self-titled album, I was fully expecting to be blown away. I thought that 3rd sounded completely rushed and uninspired. Let's face it, there's nothing that comes close to touching "Humming," "All Mine," or "Glorybox" on this record...


    Hmm... 2008 has been sort of lackluster for me so far. Several good albums, but nothing really mind-blowing yet.

    Anyone into shoegazer would be served well to check out the Keith Canisius (Rumskib) solo record:

    So far my favorites this year are:
    Morbosidad - Profana La Cruz Del Nazareno
    Opeth - Watershed
    Devastator - Conjuring Evil
    Necrovation - Breed Deadness Blood
    Dead Congregation - Graves Of The Archangels

    Other than that...some hit or misses...look forward to a few others I suppose...mostly just listening to older stuff lately anyways.

    The 3rd album is very good. I hated it at first but then it got better as i listened to it again and again. I still think that the s/t is their best though.
