Good to see you back at least, Booch has disappeared. :c
It's rare for us to agree on songs . Anyway, glad you enjoyed it

I'm always here! Everyone just stopped posting for some reason. Btw you know anything about Booch's disappearance?

Haha, I'm happy I enjoyed it, I haven't listened to much metal in the past few weeks. More like simpler rock and especially post-rock (a genre you'd probably hate).

Not much. We exchanged a few messages about two weeks ago, nothing since then.

Oh, by the way, what have you been up to since we last spoke? Both musically and not. :x

High Spirits - Another Night could be interesting to you. I'm however, quite torn between the album - there are some very nice riffing and vocals, but at the same time the riffs and vocals sound very cheesy and cringe worthy. So I'm kinda half-enjoying and half-disliking it.

I just took my time and discovered a few high quality albums in my usual genres. Occasionally a few good metalcore, MDM, tech death and what not here and there. Still, it's satisfying (more like surprising) to find good music once in a while.
(I think I've also bumped up my strict filter level up by a few notches -_-')

Allegaeon's new song, and it's excellent. For anyone who hasn't heard of Allegaeon, I suggest a listen. For anyone that likes metal, I still suggest a listen.

WHOLY ALLEGAEON!!!

I LOVE ALLEGAEON (well, the songs that don't suck that is ). The new song is kinda meh compared to the better songs off their previous album though.

Just sayin', Fragments of Formation is great! (well, 6 out of the 10 songs that is) A highly polished and catchy melodeath band with some techy moments. Dunno why critics call them a rip-off of Arsis (and I've listened to all their songs) and other popular bands though.

Balu`, if try listening to their songs a bit and see if you hate it . Accelerated Evolution is a good reference point .

If you're going to listen to any of their old stuff, this song is a necessity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tf5Gvb-t8I

I'd say based off that new song, the new album has great potential.

Yup, and one of the better songs off the album too.

I assume you're into melodeath so let's discuss/share some songs/artists/albums!
I still miss Booch though

Try Solerrain - Fighting the Illusions. EPIC MDM album.

Umm. I listened to the song Johno posted. It was alright, but insanely boring to me. :x Does it get any better?

I'll have to listen to that, I guess. Will post some impressions today if I don't forget about it.

So no new genres? Too bad. :X Anyway, how the hell could your filter get any stricter?:Đ

Some progmetal, sort of similar to Devin Townsend's stuff:

Heh, it's all what your into. Did you listen to the other song I posted? That one is a bit faster paced.

For fans of Scar Symmetry:

And here's one of my favorite songs from my favorite band:

I can't quite seem to figure out how to embed the video itself. Can anyone help me out with that?

I listened to that song, and it was awesome. Thanks for the recommendation.

Oh, and for melodeath, here's probably my favorite band for that

Dunno if anyone here is an Opeth fan, but I certainly am:

Nup not really. Tbh, it wasn't a very good song by the band imo.

He...he...hehehe... Well I'd say that my tastes have changed, and the previously 'alright' songs turned to be 'mediocre' .

I prefer Epic power metal with some prog, but not much prog in general. (see how I missed the song?)
