    First of all I want to thank you for the amazing music Anathema has been doing the last ten years, it has made a difference in my life and influenced my songwriting to a large degree! I know for a fact that Mdb ripped off that sear me riff from you guys, but I can't understand how you could dislike Turn Loose The Swans, I think it is full of emotion, darkness, and beauty...it sounds NOTHING like Anathema, and as a matter of fact after 93-94 I saw almost no similarities between Anathema and MDB, both doom metal but totally different style of riffing and emotions in the music.....I will say that since 98' Anathema and Katatonia have been far, far better than MDB in terms of their growth and the overall quality of the music (alternative 4 still gives me shivers to this day, and I thought a natural disaster was excellent, especially violence and are you there, great vocals Danny)...do you really think the only good song MDB every had was the one that had your riff in it????? I guess everyone sees things differently, but now I am much more eager to hear some new Anathema than MDB...MDB seem to have run out of ideas.....any info on what the new music is going to sound like Danny?

    *****sounds like a rainbow...that is an intriguing answer....I cannot wait to hear the new music and get the dvd when it comes out. It is nice that while MDB treads the same old water Anathema continues to grow and evolve, gives me something to look forward to and I never know quite what to expect with each new release...

    Paradise Lost - Gothic; indeed the most influential one; I have the first 4 albums and hated the first vid of Draconian Times (too disco)
    My Dying Bride: I have the first 4 albums and 3 EPs, lost interest after that; I think MDB's music is much less organic than Anathema's; I used to like it more than I do now
    Anathema never bored me a bit
    Katatonia: I don't have any music of them, what are their best albums?

    Get Viva Emptiness, Sounds of Decay (death vocals), Tonight's Decision, Discouraged Ones....awe fuck, buy all of their albums! Katatonia is one of the only bands out there that match Anathema in terms of emotion, sorrow, and creativity...Viva Emptiness is HEAVY.

    I agree with Soul, at least it was their most original and experimental album. the first time they took some risks.

    You have to get Dance of December Souls!! :headbang: Pick up Brave Murder Day too (fave song: endtime.) Mike from Opeth contributes vocals a lot on that record too. The cd also has the For Funerals to come EP as a bonus and that stuff is just great.
