World of Glass / Selling Out
« on: 12 August 2011, 19:16:01 »
At first, I disliked this song. I just had a problem with the lyrics and the way it sounded, but after a few more listens...I love the song. It's such a strong and moving song. I love the part "An Overdose of Nothingnes." It just gets me pumped up. Any thoughts on the song?

Rubicon / Least Favorite Track On Rubicon??
« on: 30 June 2011, 08:14:06 »
I generally like the album alot...but there are a few glitches for me.

I cannot stand Sirens and I'm not a big fan of Patriot Games. I also despise the bonus tracks (Caprice and The Emerald Piper). Other then that, I love the whole album. It sounds great :D

What are your least favorites?

General Music / How Like A Winter
« on: 15 April 2011, 02:03:25 »
Gothic/Doom metal band from Italy.
The music is very atmospheric and melancholic, using classical instruments such as violins, electric guitars and various acoustic instruments. Their album Beyond My Grey Wake is out now.

I absolutely love this band!!! It's amazing and beautiful!!!!!

Some of my favorite songs are


Laying Together Again (my ultimate fave <3)

Cross-album discussions / Angellore and A Sequel Of Decay
« on: 06 April 2011, 00:25:51 »
Is it just me, or do these songs seem related theme wise? Are these songs both based off of a similar story or even the same one? The lyrics are kind of similar...with both of them talking about fallen angels being led astray and stuff. Especially this part:

Angellore:
Into the night, strays an angel
So lost and tearful all astray


A Sequel of Decay:
An angel strays upon my door
So frail and lost within


Also, Osten sings a majority of the vocals in both songs.

but then again, Morten is known for making his music all with similar themes (*cough* Sirenia *cough*)
What do you guys think?

Rubicon / The Violins!!!!
« on: 04 April 2011, 21:33:21 »
I'm so glad that Pete Johansen is back on the violins on some of the songs. It's been like ten years since Tristania worked with him in their albums.
It's one of the reasons I love the song Amnesia so much. What do you guys think?
