    I know it's gossipy, but I don't care. I am curious if these three bands hated each other back in the early days as much as it seemed.
    I remember reading interviews with MDB's Aaron where he anticipated fisticuffs with Anathema as they were sharing a tour bus in Poland with Anathema.
    Another thing was that PL claimed to have profoundly influenced the other two with Lost Paradise and Gothic; it seemed like the other two resented this claim.

    Maybe none of it was really true, and you lot would gladly share a pint with Nick Holmes or A. Stainthorpe these days?

    I wouldnt share a pint with Aaron, he might put on blood(a.k.a. ketchup) before he comes out to look evil.

    I hate ketchup...
    I like all these 3 bands but I don't try to compare them and see where they influenced which... I like them separated, and I have different reasons about why I do.
    I find it childish, pointing fingers on the others in that who influenced who. and not about these 3, but in common. if some band stole the other's riffs or tones in the exact way, that's ok to be angry, but this...?! sad it happens more and more often...

    ah Nick's sound, we always got on with the PL guys. i saw Andy from MDB in Bradford not so long ago, and he wasn't bothered about past bollocks its all water under the bridge now. as for PL being a profound influence in the early days? DAMN RIGHT!!! and MDB blatantly ripping off anathema with the first track on their first album? DOUBLE DAMN RIGHT!!!
