    No I haven't. I'll listen on myspace

    EDIT: Listened to all their songs on myspace. It varied in quality but overall wasn't bad. Omni it didn't seem especially generic to me, although I didn't listen to any ambient tracks. Draconian, is there an album of theirs you would specifically recommend?

    Through the noose of existance. Listen to the title track, i believe you will love it. The sepents reign is also quite good.

    Uh, no.

    I'm sorry, but Drowning the Light isn't even remotely original or unique as far as black metal bands go. It's been done before and better. Generic, formulaic music that's been done hundreds of times. You can like it, but it's definitely not something unique or new.

    If you have anything to say that's actually a relevant reply to this statement, feel free. Any comments like your last one don't really have any kind of value or meaning beyond making it look like you don't have anything real to say.

    these bands that release four albums in a year are ridiculous. more bedroom black metal it seems.

    based on those myspace tracks, it seems black metal is well and truly dead if this is what passes for good black metal.

    not trying to be elitist, but damn. search the past. it's worth it

    Just listened to Diabolical Masquerad-"Ravendusk In My Heart". Still a good album...

    But I still haven't gotten over the awesomeness of my new Craft and Watain-"Casus Luciferi". Both are top notch releases.

    That's nice of you, but he didn't say it was anything new or ever even come close to making that claim. Anyone who does is a moron.

    Now that you guys are talking about single artists doing multiple albums. Fuck that Vladimir Cochet guy is fuckin' insane (dude behind Mirrorthrone and various other bands). 3 albums released in 2008 (that I know of, got 2 of them) and still counting. What the fuck, does this guy do anything else besides music?

    No, he literally sits in his bedroom all day making music. Seriously.

    The Hellveto guy is fucking insane too, I think he hacked reality to get more time in a day.

    It's excellent, like Graveland with more keyboards/orchestral arrangements.

    Must be real epic stuff. Any particular album you regard as the best?

    In Arms Of Kurpian Phantom, Stos and Prelude To Dying are good albums.

    Gah, I'm really sick of people slagging on bands that aren't as original as Burzum or Darkthrone. No fucking shit. But I don't want to listen those bands for the billionth time. Modern black metal is modern black metal and really should be compared to such. If you're going to constantly compare what's being released now to what was realeased in 1991-94, you're missing the point. Yeah, we've all heard that stuff. If you'd like to say band x from today is not as good as band y from 2002, then okay. But to regularly bash modern bands because they aren't as good as the early bands is fucking tiresome, and it doesn't exactly provide us with anything informative here.
