    its just true, listen to the other bands that came after, u find sooo much sentenced in it, just boring I think...
    and sentenced created so great albums, like amok or frozen... I could listen these ones again and again!

    "now every single cloud becomes a raging storm
    as I go seeking for the one I used to live for'
    since your love was taken away
    my heart's been beating empty beats.........."

    I totally agree with DragonLady, Sentenced is the most ripped-off band from Scandinavia, along with In Flames!
    I got every album since "Down", and they're all damn good!

    Uhh.. I bought the latest album 2nd hand and.. eh. I think it sounds a bit tired. Like they tried too hard to come up with a huge and catchy chorus for every song. Didn't care for the lyrics much, either. They were quite pathetic if written seriously, but not taken far enough if they were ment to be self-ironic kinda lyrics...

    still it's a decent cd to be played in the background while doing the dishes.

    :D

    It's all in the feeling...nothing fits better in my car stereo when I drive my 1987 opel corsa...I mean...it's suicidal... :O Anyway, Down is the greatest suicide-rock album ever released. Period.

    anathema's music feels 1000 times more suicidal i think. but anyway, is that the point?

    no it isn't.

    the great thing about sentenced is their back to basics rock vibe. totally infectious!

    check em lyrics, any of em, just pick one out and itll be about the dead and probably about suicide :p

    AND same guitar riffs? I can agree with the fact their sound is the same no matter what song, but musically they differ from song to song.

    Well I listened them for first time like in 97 and didn't liked to much, but strange, last year I heard Killing you, killing me and downloaded some videos and got interested again, am more into the Ville era :)
    if you want check out Chaosbreed (T.Jarva on vocals and amorphis members), they play Death Metal ala Entombed, Bloodbath :D

    i agree with Sol mostly.the newer lyrics sound to me a bit fake cos they are like 1 2 3.may have a depsressive mood,but still not the obscurity of anathema.well.they are two different bands anyway.we live in free countries,evrybody lets keep our opinions.music is to be listened to.so everybody chooses his stuff.

    yahyah sure thing :p

    but lately i rather listen to some stuff that is piercing your heart instead and leave you stunned. so no hardcore, thrash, happy power metal or punk. I need smooth stuff these days. so Anathema, Gathering, Antimatter, Ozark Henry, Jewel, Radiohead.... are spinned quite often these days.
