That's too complicated for me. Anyone got a dictionary to hand?
No need, it's numbers 1-6
Steady on, anything past four tends to give me a headache.
But counting is a very complicated thing. All these numbers an' all. What's wrong with just one,two, many?
One too many?
Nae such thing.
There's always room for one more. Just don't expect me to be the one to keep count!
Not so much 'one fer the road' as 'one fer t'sheer hell of it'?
'one fer the road', then 'one fer the gate', 'one fer the gutter', 'one fer the brick through the off-licence window' 'one fer the police van' and possibly then 'one fer t'sheer hell of it'.
Nice to see this where it always belonged
Absolutely. Not that we had anything to do with it, of course.
Not to further the discussion, but I'm in a band called Skelator who only has 2 songs about MotU. We right about other things... band name doesn't really have to dictate content. Just sayin'.
You do huh?
So what do you left about?? :Smug:
I just want to see a new album, and maybe some Australian Tour Dates
well, you can wait for a while then
oh no, DoomsdayZach wants to revive the discussion. sigh. I get so tired of this.
One last time for everyone to lazy to read it all:
LIKE I SAID BEFORE, I PERSONALLY FEEL....it doesn't add to the credibility of a band if they hop from one culture, religion or in this case mythology to another.
DoomsdayZach, nice for you that your band can sing about many different themes, and I am sure you're a GREAT bassist. But you guys play a different metal (sub)genre. Not for the better or the worse, that's not what I mean, but different nonetheless.
Heavy/Speed Metal (as M-A calls you) doesn't have to be as "true" and "stick to your roots" as Folk/Viking/Pagan/... metal, because that whole genre is ABOUT sticking to your roots, mythology, history etc. But you can also make a power/speed metal album about how you were dumped by that one hot chick but you still love her...That wouldn't work out well if you guys had a "folk metal band".
"Folk" elements in music mean the band takes inspiration from (local!) mythology (Turisas = finnish god), stories, or historical facts (Varangian journeys e.g.). That's why I also feel bands such as Skiltron just don't do it for me personally. They are basically "fake". I am not bashing them, and I know, I know, Turisas wear jeans and use computers, I understand. That's completely besides the point. At least they sing about THEIR cultural, histocial herritage. And that's what I meant with "true" etc. So to go short: will Turisas' music suddenly change subjects to a whole different religion and culture (because that's basically what we're talking about here); I don't think so.
/end of rant. for the last time, next one who wants to discuss this with me can do so by PM. thank you for your attention.
