    Never said you were blind. I merely pointed out that this guy seems to take for granted that everyone in here must love every album DT puts out just because.

    Ah, nevermind. No matter the topic, he seems to manage to squeeze in a reference to how little he liked Fiction. Who knows what he's thinking.

    Excellent production, vastly improved song-structures and plenty of variety both within the songs and between them - a thing that was somewhat lacking in their previous two albums. Songs like The Lesser Faith, Icipher, Inside the Particle Storm, Misery's Crown and The Mundane and the Magic are nothing like the songs on Character or Damage Done (which were very good in their own way), IMHO.

    I have been disappointed with a multitude of bands and albums over the years, but despite my incredibly high expectations Fiction is certainly not a disappointment to me. Actually, I think it's their best album ever.

    NOT Nightwish.

    I am now listening to the "long-awaited" Amaranth and cringing five times per second. I haven't heard the rest of the album, will do soon but from the few songs I have sampled I think I will cry throughout the experience.

    It sounds like fucking Roxette. If you were growing up during the 80s, you will know I am right.

    Not that I dislike Roxette per se, but they deliver a feeling that has absolutely zilch to do with what I expect from Nightwish. Dark passion play, my grandmother doing cartwheels.

    So please someone enlighten me: now which corners I am supposed to look into if I really, really want something that feels like dark passion play rather than merely being misnamed after it?

    Yes, it does sound like Roxette. The album's a complete mess. A freaking car crash. That first, long epic song was pretty decent, so I thought it might not be as bad after all, but by the next track it all goes straight to hell. It's totally unremarkable and boring. The ballads are the most disgusting of all.

    1. Behemoth - The Apostasy
    2. Dimmu Borgir - In Sorte Diaboli (haven't seen much mention of this)
    3. Marduk - Rom. 5:12
    4. Nile - Ithyphallic
    5. Candlemass - King of the Grey Islands

    Generic list, maybe, but all of these albums kill.

    The new Entombed is killer as well. It's their best since 'Left Hand Path', for sure. Of course, I never liked anything they did except for 'Left Hand Path'...

    New Dimension Zero. Good ol' ultrafast melodic death with cool leads, no catchy songs this time (but catchy'ish ;) ), solid release, some might like it :kickass:

    I'm quite happy with it.

    Actually a really good groovy album, but it's not what I usually listen to... Apostasy is abysmal utter shit to me, btw.

    I like 'The Apostasy', but the problem I have with Behemoth is that all of its albums are interchangeable among themselves. They're all pretty much at the same level, and have the same effect in me. Whenever I want to listen to Behemoth, I just put 'Zos Kia Cultus' in the CD player, and I'm done with it.

    I actually prefer Melechesh's 'Emissaries' to both 'The Apostasy' and Nile's 'Ithyphallic'. The riffs are a bit odder and catchier, and it's got as much energy.

    As for Dimmu's new one... come on, it's the same crap rehashed into infinity. Haven't heard the new Dimension Zero, but Gothenburg hardly does it for me lately. Might check it out later, though.

    I hope they'll be headlining on the Utrecht, Holland show.
