    A little generic of the current metal scene for my tastes (not to say that it is truly generic, but I'm partial to some very experimental and borderline stuff), but it didn't make me want to stop listening at any point. More than I can say about 90% of this thread. So yeah, I'd rate it above average. If nothing else, it's metal. And I can approve of that.

    Now then, I'm giving somebody the privilege of hearing this excellent specimen of folk metal. Also a good cautionary tale about why you shouldn't try to steal American gold >=(

    7/10 I think I can perform a magnificent dance to this. A blend of folk dance and head banging that would make everyone laugh out loud at how silly it looks


    I think the lyrics to this song are both funny and passionate. He curses 'Mr. Hamilton' for inventing the digital clock. I suppose Mr. Hamilton is the founder of Hamilton Watch Company. They made the first digital electronic watch, and before that they developed the digital clock which was used for the 1968 movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    10/10. I found it awesome, not to mention I'm an old fashion clock lover. (and like steampunk, so cogs ftw)

    Now brace yourself, this has a very high chance of unleashing your inner demons if you listen to the whole thing. Song is written n composed by Devin Townsend, vocals by Opeth's Mikael.

    That got better as it went. The vocals were a bit heavy for me, but the chanting was pretty cool. And I actually started enjoying it once it picked up speed.
    It was alright. Very primal feeling.

    Now since I had to sit through a 10 minute song, I'm going to make somebody listen to the entirety of Elizabeth. Be sure to give a thorough review, to prove that you were metal enough to sit through the whole thing!


    Edit: the transitions between parts i, ii, and iii are a little rough because the uploader is apparently bad at editing. Those don't exist on the actual album.

    Loved it. 10/10 N since you asked for a thorough review I actually listened to it twice in a row so really I gave you 30 mins! I especially loved it cuz it's a semi monologue with Elizabeth Bathory as the speaker. According to texts, she was a glorious loony Although her having bathed in the blood of beautiful young girls is just a myth, I guess that's what Kamelot is all about, mythology. As part 1 ended and I realized the voice saying "Elizabeth, wake up" is actually her mother, that sent chills up my spine! And I think they added to the myth by implying in part 2 that she also killed her mother >< As for the music, it all fit the story. Part II's riffing was better than the rest, but all n all quite an epic song

    6/10 not a huge fan of Iron Maiden but this one isn't too bad.



    The lyrics in this song are amazing, in my opinion.
