Oh, and for Woods of Ypres, this seems appropriate:
Sometimes I feel like the only Sonata Arctica fan alive. Such an amazing live band.
I don't even understand why NSBM is so "popular" in Poland and Ukraine, when Hitler considered slavik people to be lowlife and commited many atrocities against them.
Uldreth <Group Therapy> - Ravencrest EU
World 141th in 25 man category, 2 days/week, recruiting exceptional players for MoP.
Yeah it makes no sense to me either when I think about it, but I don't live in Europe so I have no concept of how something like that would be perceived over there or how things have changed between or in countries since WWII
My guess is that it's the most effective way of being "anti" and provocative over there. I know some Serbs and if you're into Hitler and stuff, you're a walking target to those guys. Guess being Nazi is more effective nowadays than being Satan.
Also, remember Laibach, the slowenian band that has heavily influenced Rammstein? They very much coquetted with the whole third reich, totalitarian mannerisms and imagery - something Rammstein also adopted for their own style - and were the most controversial band of their time. You couldn't piss anyone off with religious bullshit in Yugoslawia and those countries. They didn't give a shit, they were still heavily influenced by socialist ideas back then. Religion means shit in socialism.

Some more OSDM
Heard "Flag in the ground" off the album after Unia, was not impressed. Didn't buy album
Heard "I have a right" off their latest album, it was even worse! Am not buying that album...
But yeah, the old stuff like 8th Commandment there was pretty great
I cant get these songs out of my head for the past 5 days.
Three songs from Cathedral. Love this band.
Maybe I can interest you in one of these?
Can somebody suggest to me something similar to this? I've been listening to these guys now for a year or so and their old stuff, from the 90s and early 2000s, is just freaking amazing to me!
Rush, Vanden Plas, Racer X, Spock's Beard, Spastic Ink, Watchtower, Leprous.
