Along with Swallow The Sun, Kreator and Amorphis. :P
Them too but the name Moonsorrow stuck out to me very well. Hmm, I'm now curious about Amorphis. Any recommendations for their albums?

Oh jesus, that's like asking me to recommend you an Opeth album to start with. :/

Their early stuff is melodic death metal, like I consider them the first melodic death metal band. But they definitely had a swallow the sun-esque feel as well.

Nowadays, they're closer to progressive rock IMO but it's still amazing.

Honestly, just browse a few of their songs on youtube and whichever style you like better check out an album from that time period. hahaha

It's not the distance that's an issue, it's the fact that I'm not familiar with Birmingham. I've never been there before. I've been to London many times over the last 4 years and would be more comfortable with attending a show there than Birmingham.

Makes sense, get a friend to go with you who does know the place? haha

I'm surprised you didn't post your "You Mad" spam picture to make your post much more of a complete waste :)

No. Why would I ever be jealous of someone who's going to see a band I just don't like...

None of my friends know Birmingham that well. :P

It depends on the moderators' mood. It could take a few hours or even take a week just for them to get to your review. The problem with them is how they handle reviews "in a chaotic order". They don't always go with the oldest reviews to check, they just do whatever they feel like. It's rather stupid since you could have the slightest grammar mistake in your review and a week later they reject the review. It's reasons like this why it can be a pain in the ass to get a review posted on MA.

Like Bahamuth said. It can be anything starting from a few hours, to a few days or a week. I don't think they would go as far as a whole week.

For those of you who enjoy the work of Boris, their new collaboration with Merzbow just came out, called Klatter. I must say it's rather good so far.

No sense of tiiiiiime, sever tomorroooooooooooooooooooooooow.

I'm going to go check out that new Boris/Merzbow thing. Fuck, it's either Boris/Merzbow, Melvins/Merzbow, Porn/Merzbow, is this Merzbow dude any good by himself? I have no material to go on. Perhaps I should investigate further.

So guys, any good metal albums I should get? Easy question, yes it is.

So I'm now a lot more metal because my shoulder has a metal plate with six screws. The X-Ray of it is pretty metal.

I don't listen to the dude but apparently this is one of his well known albums. Careful with the ears, though.

Ugh, old site is old.

It has pretty awful songs up and the definitions of the genres is really shittie. Plus, they skip some genres entirely.

I would beg to differ. With the sole exception of melodic death metal shows(ugh so many core kids like in flames, soilwork, etc. probably more core kids like that genre than metalheads) I next to never see more than a handful of teenagers at concerts.

And they almost always know how to behave themselves. Teenagers aren't anywhere nearly as obnoxious as fat men in their 40's that are wasted. (Whom are mainly only at thrash metal or oldschool death metal shows hahaha)

Plus, of all the shows i'm going to in the future the ONLY ones that are 18+ are Agalloch and Destruction/Heathen - the rest are all ages.

I remember last year or whatever, a member here was bitching that all his reviews took 2-3 weeks to get submitted back to him and he only had like one get approved. haha

Keep in mind, i've been into power metal since 2001. I didn't start REALLY getting into other genres of metal, or music in general really, until late 2007/2008.

While Manowar isn't exactly power metal, they were close enough that I loved themed for years. Sure i'm not big on them anymore, but I still want to see them at least once as they are one of my first metal bands. (One of, not the - blind guardian was my first)

All the teenagers at every AA show I've been to and even the ones that somehow sneak their way into non AA shows are idiots. I've never been to a show where some kid hasn't tried to pick a fight with someone and end up getting their teeth kicked in. The vast majority of places here don't put up a beer gardens when there is an AA show too. Fucking sucks. Add in the fact that 99% of the kids here a posers (you guys remember by Inquisition story) and I hate AA shows.

Yeah, right?

I've read a couple definitions of main genres and sub-genres and they are pretty accurate. In fact, I've learned some really interresting stuff on Tech Death, First Wave Of Black Metal, Symphonic Black Metal, Brutal Death Metal, Black Metal/Ambient, and quite a few other genres. I've also found some new bands to listen to, because some of the tracks are not pure shit, like you said.

The guy may have skipped some genres, but I still give him credit for how well he traced the history of the genres he listed. There may be some flaws, but saying it's total shit, would just be disnonest. A lot of effort was put into this, and there is some quality information on it.
