    Gotta say I prefer the original version of the song. This one sounds a bit too laidback. There is absolutely no battle feeling involved in it. I guess it is meant to gain more commercial airplay though so I understand their choice to pop it up.

    Same here. More power to them! Everyone should follow their own path in life. Sometimes they loose fans on the way but they'll definitely gain new ones!

    Well not me either probably, provided that the next album reaches up to the standard set by The Varangian Way. I am however more of an extreme metal fan so I hope they won't stray too far into pop territories. I'm not one of those "they went pop so now I hate them" kind of people though hahaha. Take bands like In Flames, Paradise Lost and Skyclad for example - I don't like anything they've done for years (Whoracle, Draconian Times and Irrational Anthems respecitvely are the last albums I bought on release date and loved) but I listen to all on a regular basis and they all still belong to my absolute faves! Turisas will always be one of my fave bands, even if they go Rn'B on our asses :headbang:

    I'm a fan of most music so I don't think I'll mind too much.
    Besides they've delivered two (near hehe) perfect albums already
    why would they stop now :)

    Well, I couldn´t agree more. But imaging them drifting away into more and more pop territories makes somehow laugh, I simply couldnt imagine that at all...but well...

    I mean, for me mostly counts the way they act live, and the whole live-spirit is the thing that counts most for me - so I necessarily don´t need "hard" albums as long as they rock live...

    I never thought In Flames and Paradise Lost would be pop bands one day either :)

    Just to clarify what I am saying here:

    - I'm not saying Turisas has become a pop band.
    - I think they've created two brilliant albums so far and I think they'll continue to deliver the goods!
    - I won't start hating Turisas if they do become even more commercial.

    All I was saying is that the new version of Battle Metal is a bit to smooth and soft for my taste and that I prefer the original. Actually I really prefer the original original (The Heart of Turisas) most of all. My fiancée who isn't much of a hardrock fan at all said that she prefers the new one "without all that screaming shit" though :lol:

    Final note. TURISAS RULES!!!!!!!!!!!! :headbang:

    You don't refer to Techoviking, Technoviking refers to you.
