    i think empiricism is far more dark and moody then epic, and i prefer the guitar tones on empiricism. but both are equally good albums. damn i think i will go listen to epic right now!

    I agree 100% with this post, I loved Origin (a bit short but oh well...) and it's certainly a matter of opinion.

    I'm sorry you didn't like it Mr./Mr.s Cthulhu.

    And thank you for posting those Funeral-doom, I love it but haven't really heard much because I've no time, basically :Smug:. Too many bands I've to listen to definitely.

    I'll die and I'll never hear all the bands I want to hear :erk:.

    Why are you glad I didn't like it? I'm quite annoyed with the fact.
    And it's mr. :)

    That is true. I just automatically assume that when people say something like that, they are ravenous fanbois. Sorry for misunderstanding you.

    My bad, I already edited the post. I mean to say I was sorry that you didn't like it, it's a pity; especially when it's an album of one of your favourite bands :mad: :erk: .

    I made the post at around 1:35, so I wasn't seeing very clearly :rolleyes: :p.

    Hello Mr.Cthulhu :) .

    No way are those bands better than Funeral. They can't compete with the emotion Frode put into Red Moon, they play doom for the sake of playing doom. Very forced. Some of them.

    Thorr's Hammer for sure. But I already knew about them.

    When Funeral play doom metal on From These Wounds, it's like they had no intention of making it doom. That's how it came out, it was the product of their torment. It's like Thorr's Hammer said "I like teh doom metulz!" "Me too!". "Lets play it!".

    But don't listen to me. I don't post here unless I'm stoned out of my mind. But with that being said I don't like much of Funerals old material, or much doom metal with generic female vocals.

    Well, I might agree with you a bit on the Thorr's Hammer issue. I jsut think they are still good. But Wormphlegm and Esoteric are nowhere near forced. They're fluent and coherent.

    No you're not. If you're ever in Oslo I'll buy you a beer. Or two... I owe you for drawing me and my biggest fan (mr sheep). I might even introduce you to some friends of mine whom I know you adore (well, if they are in town).

    Well me, Owen and Amy are going to Oslo in May (if I get my money sorted out and maybe not Amy because of her 965864 festivals). It's only £30 to fly there too so I could go tomorrow if I felt like it, haha. We're only staying in Oslo for the day though because we couldn't find any cheap accommodation there, only Bergen has remotely cheap hostels. Boooo :cry:

    What's a cheap hostel to you? I'll probably be in Oslo some time during the summer since apperently I'm going to Sweden for two weeks. :lol:

    Well I don't know anyone who has travelled to Oslo so I couldn't get any recommendations for a decent hostel there, all I got as some over expensive Hotels from a few friends there. The hostel we found in Bergen is around £15 a night, which is perfect for us. If we could find a hostel in Oslo for a similar price then it'd be nice since I would like to stay there for at least a proper day.

    Ah right well I'm sure Asgeir can point you in right direction for a cheap hostel, in Oslo! :lol:
