    ah you guys arent interested in lyrics. and even then. as well for the music. after listening to 'Down' I'm full of energy. like i would kick someones ass and all that. 'Alternative 4' at the other hand leaves me empty, lost, wondering...

    Well, when I was in the car with Pieter I heard Sentenced for the first time, and the first thing that came up was "hey this sounds like Amorphis", so...

    I don't think so, but hey, it's just my opinion! For me, Amorphis is less "negative" or "suicidal" than Sentenced... But both have the "finnish" touch... Like To/Die/For... :D

    I dont think Amorphis copied Sentenced, but for sure to die for and the rest of these bands did quite well... I prefer Entwine tho, the last to die for album was just shit I think

    sentenced started this all over the edge suicidal lyrics and catchy melodies and that. then HIM came up and gayed it up and got big and there you go. now people think sentenced are one of these puffs copying HIM but its pretty much the eay round really. bah, metal mongs are helpless arent they.

    sentenced are a really cool band, but no one in the finnish scene should be exeggerated. especially love metal bands like him, entwine and to/die/for. i like them and listen to them but one must accept the humor there is in them. :p

    what i don't like about some of them bands is that they desperately want to look "sad" when they don't even get close to it... hence the "humor" don mentions, if i'm understanding correctly.

    yes, exactly. yeah it's nice and all to listen to the music and sing along and feel a bit brokenhearted in the middle of the night with a ciggy in your hand, but if you take everything those bands say for granted, then you're in trouble.

    e.g.

    "give me a reason to live one more day"
    -sentenced

    thats a very cool line. a bit cheesy to some ears maybe, but one must admit it is nice after all. sad and all...BUT if you take that seriously and apply it to your life, na-ah, deepshit.

    life is NOT that bad. it IS bad, but there are so many beautiful things to live (and wait) for. if anyone is willing to take a sentenced lyric for granted and apply it as a motto, i suggest this one:

    "life has given me much, maybe taken more
    but those good times were always worth waiting for"


    there.

    cheers
