    I was thinking more about running the whole thing as a motif. Hats and leather bootstraps, lyrics about train robberies and saloon shootouts, melodies inspired by spaghetti western soundtracks, etc.

    For those interested in some black metal, Summoning is amazing. All of their songs and lyrics take influence from J.R.R. Tolkein's Lord of the Rings poems/ballads/etc. The way they sort of present the lyrics and music, it seems like they have a complete different perspective on the culture and motifs scattered throughout Middle-Earth in contrast to Peter Jackson (Their 3 albums were made in the mid to late 90s).

    I don't really know how to put the video up correctly, so I'll just link it.

    I realise this is pushing it for this particular thread, but these lyrics are absolutely awesome:

    Ron Jarzombek reminded me of



    Apparently deer are very metal.

    So the new PxDx disk arrived along with new beast by Neurosis. Having given them both a preliminary spin I think my 1st and 2nd spots for album of the year are cemented.

    Book Burner kicks some serious ass. It's probably the most accessible Pig Destroyer have ever been while retaining their intensity while diversifying their sound considerably. It really is friggin awesome. Not sure it's my favorite album of theirs but you never know. You can't really judge after just one spin.



    Neurosis are Neurosis at the end of the day. They don't actually know how to make a bad record. Album of the year for me no doubt.

    There is nothing greater in music for me when some unknown band creates masterpieces like this. I mean, this goes straight to the top of progressive death metal for me, it is in the company of Death, Gorguts, Edge of Sanity, Sadist, and even Atheist. The whole album is free to download at:

    Give these guys some metal popularity!

    That is very awesome
    They're (short for They are) describes a group of people. "They're/They are a nice bunch of guys." Their indicates that something belongs/is related to a group of people. "Their car was all out of fuel." There refers to a location. "Let's set up camp over there." There is also no such thing as "could/should OF". The correct way is: Could/should'VE, or could/should HAVE.

    That's my fave Septic Flesh album. Pretty much the only one either. The whole atmosphere of that album is amazing.

    Now that we are on Septic Flesh, my favourites (still haven't listened to their first albums though, I should go do that):



    (That chorus kills me every time)





    This band along with Rotting Christ and some others basically created metal in Greece.

    Varathron? Necromantia? Come on - Rotting Christ and Septic Flesh were far from the only ones coming from Greece.

    And I really think Septic Flesh is boring as hell lately, particularly live. So much comes from tape that what they actually play is really bland.

    That's why I said among others . But those 2 have the biggest influence here, considering metal popularity. They are/were kinda like Iron Maiden here, while more obscure bands like Nightfall or Naer Mataron and those you mentioned played the more "Mayhem" role.
