    Why does no one check out Autumn Leaves when I tell them to. They are of Intestine Baalism caliber.

    I've heard them before. They're definitley quality- but nothing mind blowing...

    EDIT: I'm thinking of Autumnal Winds, I guess I should check out your band then...

    Don't expect mind-blowing. However, they are still some of the best melodic death out there.

    I'm planning on picking that one up tomorrow, actually. Haven't heard any of their other albums though. And thoughts on the rest of their catalogue?

    Of course. I've little use for it nowadays, though. I'm on the verge of running out of bands and I buy, rather than download.

    Blasfemia Eternal is decent and probably musically better, but I find the vocals very weak and often annoying. The only other material I've heard by them is their split with Uncanny - which is also worthwhile.

    Cool, I'd like to get Traumatic Voyage if you have it. I haven't been able to find them anywhere.

    This thread is starting to get ridiculously slow.

    This week I've been on a huge Guns 'n Roses binge. And it fucking rules.

    I never got into GnR to tell you the truth...my dad lent my Use Your Illusion I & II on tape a while ago and I listened a bit to each and liked a few tracks, but overall, I wasn't very impressed...and Sweet Child O' Mine is overrated. :p

    I'm thinking about buying the new Kataxu disc, on account of the sound samples I heard of it being fucking AWESOME.

    I hate Kataxu as well as Sunwheel. They're not fucking music.

    Actually...yeah they are. There are definitely musical elements in the new Kataxu. Including, but not limited to, songwriting, keyboard arrangements, and beats.

    In other (and less nonsensical) news, has anyone heard this (apparently) EP?

    Looks fucking good.

    I like Ween...

    Ween - The Blarney Stone

    Get off my ass you wee bitty fuck
    If I pull out the Claymore you're shit outta luck
    Who's that girl, that pretty young thing
    After I fuck her she'll get up and sing

    Aye Aye Aye -- sharpen your boot, and bludgeon your eye
    Aye Aye Aye -- the Blarney Stone brings a tear to me eye

    Down to the pub for a two shilling ale
    The bread on the counter is going stale
    If I don't get some fresh bread soon
    Gonna punch you in your face and bark at the moon

    Aye Aye Aye -- sharpen your boot, and bludgeon your eye
    Aye Aye Aye -- the Blarney Stone brings a tear to me eye

    Ain't got no girl 'cuz I haven't the time
    Got too many other things on me mind
    Patty was nice she was pale and cute
    But I threw her away like an old piece of fruit

    Aye Aye Aye -- sharpen your boot, and bludgeon your eye
    Aye Aye Aye -- the Blarney Stone brings a tear to me eye

    Got ooze in my pores my feet are all wet
    Got mold in my ears but I ain't dead yet
    Got stones in me bladder got a crack in me head
    When Patty starts cryin' this is what I said

    Aye Aye Aye -- sharpen your boot, and bludgeon your eye
    Aye Aye Aye -- the Blarney Stone brings a tear to me eye

    Those lyrics would go PERFECTLY to Brocas Helm's song "Defend The Crown."

    :( So much black metal falls short of "Pure Holocaust"

    I highly agree, but I would also add that so much Black Metal also rises above "Pure Holocaust." The dilemma we have here is the oversaturation of the genre.

    And Bifrost rawks.

    Bifrost? I haven't heard them. What style of black metal do they play?

    As for your comment on oversaturation...no kidding. So many bands in black metal that had no need to ever exist.

    Also, out of curiosity, what would you say "rises above" Total Holocaust? I'm not going to say that Total Holocaust is the best black metal album recorded by any means, but I find it amazing that given the amount of times I've listened to that album compared to others, I rarely tire of it. I find too many albums in the genre become boring after so many listens, the rare exceptions to this being truly great bands.
