I also think the problem is the food ...
you really think you are that good and influencial that the band will hear your suggestion? and you really think you are some kind of visionary, like a dude that feels the music better than anyone else here in the forum? always with the lame cliche talk about the atmospheric trees and shit, like if you were gifted and we are all amazed with your vision, wishing we could appreciate music like you do and we should be thankful by your opinions. alexi is in the hospital and your worries are that they make a live dvd under your visionary suggestion. what a douche uke:
get well alexi, thats what matters!
That's him, he's always been that way and it doesn't hurt anyone. You insulting him though, that's more of a douche attitude. I don't agree with Joonas most of the time (if ever) but I think is worse when someone attacks him for begin himself.
If my memory isn't failing, this is a message board for discussion... Nobody believed my visions of a COB album would come true, but then many of the elements came true with Halo of Blood, with the wintery lake and forest, the more atmospheric soundworld, the catchiness over technicality. I'm not saying my opinion is better than theirs... but I think it would make a more interesting release if they decided to play other interesting songs instead of overused ones like Needled, HCDR, Hate Me...
At some point the band needed soul searching as they weren't capitalizing on the great artistic theme they created in the past. Now it's on a satisfying level (with extremely high expectations) and I just want to give minor ideas that could make a difference in my opinion... I think the band wants to hear opinions from passionate fans? If I talked to Alexi I'd tell him the same things: "make the DVD, use the atmospheric samples, play songs like Children of Decadence and Chokehold instead of certain other songs, don't hesitate to do it cos it would be great, the iron is hot right now so grab the hammer." You want your live DVD to be perfect, cos that's what will remain as memory of your live action for ages.
The act they had at Wacken 2012 was terrible (Alexi was tired, setlist was too regular), it would be so sad if they recorded the DVD back then and not now with the refreshed form. Back a couple years ago I had to be aggressive and "tell them what to do" cos they had the ability but the passion was gone. Now there's passion and I just say "hey what if you do this little change and it could spice things up". I'm actually excited now, not frustrated.
There's a hundred different variations they could do to make a very interesting setlist, so one has to wonder why stick to certain formulas such as using Downfall always as the ending track, why not try it as the third or fourth track and leave all the humour and passages out of the song. I think it's very entertaining to think of different variations for the setlist like it's a puzzle. It's the unseen, voiceless spirit that's created with the chemistry of different songs leading from one to another.
If I was an artist with many good releases and someone came to tell me how it's wrong, I would tell him to fuck off and do something better himself before giving me advices. So I understand where nunofrg is coming from. But I believe in my ideas, I'm a passionate guy when it comes to art, and I have an extremely passionate vision of this music and it was just suggestions from a friend, like philosophic discussion. I admit, back some time ago I wanted to shake Alexi and tell him to wake the fuck up and take the lake, forest, atmosphere, horror and original energy back into the music, with the risk of him telling me to fuck off... which must sound hilarious to Alexi as I'm not even a musician, but I think music is voice of the soul.
To be honest, Alexi was in Hospital, the least they can think of is an live dvd...
Stop fucking whining, and stay on topic, or say nothing !
Joonas, there's an live video thread, go discuss live Dvd's there the ones who are intrested will follow.
Whining? Lmao, I just made a very intellectual post, maybe you have no patience to read. You're whining and projecting your whining at me, as always.
Dear god....You are SOOO anoyying that they gave you a thread especially for you to talk in, go throwh such stuff in there, as has been said, this thread is about alexi's health, not some DVD idea...
imo inearthed shining had great over. yes trees and mystery yes atmosphere....so yea i kinda hear ur ideas on that but for the rest....just seeing a post with ur name on it already makes me go "facepalm"
and i think many people have the same thing. no offense
Alexi stop hurting. So it should be. So it will be. I believe in it, and therefore it is true.
Now we got an explanation about Alexis injury: gallstones, so nothing to do with excessive drinking. Source: http://www.iltasanomat.fi/musiikki/art-1288589061532.html
Maybe you should actually try reading my post and see if there's something you can argument about it. This forum has never been my place for sure, nothing but haters and trolls.
Gall stones this time... they should be pretty painful. I wonder if this occurred before or if it's new. Last time it was the ulcer. How can all this always happen to Alexi and nobody else...
Man, this happens to millions of people in the world...lol.
Pretty sure he meant the other guys in the band. And it's probably because Alexi has raped his body more than the other guys and now it's starting to show.
It is my understanding that he's quite a self centered individual who's posts are driven by the need for attention and admiration. Or so it seems. I don't care if his ideas are good or not, a guy was hospitalized and in agony, and this other guy manages to make this thread his own by posting some fucking ideas that he personally would please to see for his own pleasure. That's pretty sick if you ask me...
It's an anonymous internet forum, you expect decency and good taste? He is usually ignored and the threads continue normally, if you pay attention to what he says, then that's how threads go offtopic.
