    Hmmm...thats possibly it.
    Might add Insurgentes to the list later, I heard the whole album but that wasnt enough to soak it all in.

    Very dissapointing record so far FOR ME: Twilight of the Thunder God

    Record that have filled my expectations and beyond:
    Bloodbath - The Fathomless Mastery
    Meshuggah- obZen

    I wont say Watershed because I've only listened to it once and so far I dont like it, which is bad.


    Best live dvd:
    The Wacken Carnage and awaiting impatiently for Meshuggah's upcoming live dvd aswell \m/

    Special mention to the kings:
    DARKTHRONE - Dark Thrones and Black Flags
    AND:
    HORNA: Sanojesi Äärelle

    Origin- Antithesis
    Nachtmystium- Assassins
    Sigur Ros - Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust
    Cynic - Traced In Air
    Ihsahn - Angl
    Arghoslent - Hornets Of The Pogrom
    Rotten Sound - Cycles
    Splattered Mermaids - Stench Of Flesh
    Deathspell Omega - Veritas Diaboli Manet in Aeternum

    Really? I thought this album was just a tad under par with; With Oden On Our Side.

    Great album... why do you think it's disappointing? Just wondering, I thought it's fucking fantastic and the drumming is intense as ever, and it's more raw than their previous (I'd say it's as fluctuating as Versus the World, which is my favorite album from them)

    Btw, Tattered Banners and Bloody Flags will become my funeral song. Intense as HELL.

    Wouldnt know how to put it in words really.

    at first listening i thought they made a record that were more accesible to the american market and its fine case you have to rape what you saw, right? i felt the drumming werent as intense as in other albums, the growls man! didnt felt they were meant to be growls, i loved the lyrics, but what the fuck happened with the riffs??? WHERE THE FUCK ARE THEY?

    It wasnt intense, maybe it is because am going thru so much shit i can't even focus on going to work. The same with Watershed.

    fuck i cant explain it to you haha, sorry.
