What days are you going to be doing that then? Or are you putting both up the same day?
Or do you even have anything figured out so far for that yet?

One on Monday like the old one but also on something like Thursday or Friday.

Only other thing I can think of is that I have yet to have a rough list down. Will need to start considering one song from at least 104 different artists. I imagine by June/July I'll have listened to tons more great material in metal to have more ideas put down. Hell, I could still be changing shit around by the time the new year starts. Same thing happened with 2011's posts where some I did write up ended up getting scrapped.

Crazy thing about my next idea here is that there is some sort of restriction throughout the year...

So I finally got Diamond Head on my computer (Lightning To The Nations). So does anyone have any recommendations when it comes to other albums by them? I was considering getting Borrowed Time but for some reason didn't do so.

I also learned all of Am I Evil? except the middle of the solo....I can nail the beginning and end relatively well but that middle section always fucks me up.

Hmm....ya know I was considering doing something like this for next year (since we're already almost done with January...) but since I can't review worth a crap I'm more than likely not going to do that. I mean I could do what I did with my last newspost and put up an entire album and put the lyrics to all the songs and whatnot with a link to said album at the bottom. But that sounds a tad boring....the one I have up at the moment is Dopethrone.

Borrowed Time may be worth picking up but I'm rather cynical about it considering they had to re-record songs from the first album. Diamond Head are just a one album band to me.

Eh, I feel my reviewing skills can brush up but talking about individual songs is a lot easier than covering a whole album. That's why I was more comfortable with my Monday Metal posts than reviewing an album or a live show.

Ah okay. I guess I'll get it and leave it at just having Lighting To The Nations and Borrowed Time.

I have a hard time fairly reviewing ONE song haha xD

still not entirely sure why o.O

Also I might just post an album at the end of each month that I feel whoever comes onto my page should check out and whatnot. It would be a hell of a lot easier than reviewing stuff.
Then again I'm lazy and would more than likely forget all about doing it hahaha.

Another thing I want to get more into is American Power Metal. I've listened to a few (Manilla Road, Iced Earth, and Virgin Steele) and I really like the style. So, throw recs at me!!!

What kind of folk ? Because there is a lot, really.

In black/folk there are bands like Agalloch, Fen, Borknagar, Ulver (early), Primordial, Dark Forest, Enslaved

In more symphonic, melancholic black folk, I can name Empyrium.

Between Neoclassical, Neofolk and Folk Metal, there was the now disbanded Nachtreich. Great stuff.

In more Epic Folk, Power/Folk and Melodic Death/Folk there is stuff like Finntroll, Nomans Land, Alkonost, Ensiferum, Battlelore, Turisas, Equilibrium, Wintersun

Whatever floats your boat !

As for American power metal, I'll let the other geeks answer this :P

Windir is a nice black/folk/viking metal group that I think is worth checking out. That is, if that's the kind of folk you are looking for.

Laziness will be a huge problem. I think if I started work as soon as July I should be able to manage it well. Best looking far ahead incase I do slip here and there. That's bound to happen.

That all sounds spot on. The only other things to add are Finsterforst and Elvenking (first album and demo only).

I'll meet you half-way with this. They're Christian Power Metal.
And another name for Christian Metal is White Metal.

Yeah, you're correct there.

I don't really care about religion in music though, it's never bothered me. Some bands, take it too far, but I've listened to quite a few Christian bands, like RED, and would've never even noticed they were Christian until reading about it somewhere.

So yeah, Theocracy may be Christian, but I don't really mind, they're still Power Metal, and the religious beliefs of the band hardly affect their music at all, maybe a little lyrically, but they still have the themes and sound of every other Power Metal, not to mention an amazing guitarist.

I think that term applies to black metal with Christian influence.

I believe Kekal used to have a big Christian influence in their music early on. And they've always been a brilliant metal band.

Ah. I thought it mainly applied to other genres of metal where the bands had Christian influences....
Then again it doesn't really matter to me if they have "christian influences" I'd be okay with listening to some of it if I thought it was okay music. Hell Sleep had "Biblical Themes" in their lyrics I consider them one of my favorite bands.

It does. And I really can't think of any actual good White Metal... or just White Metal in general. What bands are considered WM ?

I don't know of any, but I remember Ryan saying that there was one that he thought was really good. I can't remember the name, though.

Believer is a prog/thrash band I really like. Overall, I think the term White Metal should not exist. It's just a term that allows for negative preconceived notations, makes you think the band sucks before you even listen to it. Plus, a lot of people use the term to denote bands that have Christian band members, which is even worse. Dumb term, doesn't even denote a band's sound at all.

Plus, I always thought white metal only referred to Christian black metal?

Shit....that already came out didn't it?

It did but for some reason it was released a week later for the UK. Same shit happened with 7 Sinners. I can't fathom why this had to happen twice in a row now.

Ah okay. Maybe they wanted their UK fans to wait....I dunno ._.
Though the US had to wait 2 1/2 MONTHS for Black Masses to be released here....so...yeah....

Yeah, there's something about a lot of European releases that take a fucking eternity to be released in America. It's such a dumb business practice as those who will not wait will either import it from across the Atlantic Ocean or simply download it from the internet. You'd think they would have clicked onto that by now...

You'd think so. But apparently it hasn't dawned on them that they shouldn't take forever to release stuff in other parts of the world because people will just download it illegally. And as a result cost the label a ton of money for doing so.
I mean I could see a couple day delay being fine. Instead making people wait weeks if not months for an album to be released.
