    I've been meaning to check that one out. Sounds pretty promising.

    Very interested, but I need to listen to more tracks.

    I distinctly remember you disliking U.M.A. (or I'm confusing people). In that case, this one is a totally different album. A lot more hectic and a lot less space ambienty.

    Not impressed myself, actually. Very chaotic at the start (not that Bal-Sagoth ever has been anything other than sloppy), exceedingly poor production and I think the new vocalist is just a lacklustre replacement for Byron.

    I remember that cover but I don't remember if I've actually listened to it. In any case, I doubt that I would really dislike it. I gave the new one a brief listen after you linked it but I was talking to people at the same time so I had to delay a full listen until I can find the time. What I heard sounded interesting though.

    Gave oltreLuna a listen. I was surprised by how organic the production on the album was and how many kind of tribal/ethnic elements the band used considering the theme of the album. I liked the straight up black metal sections and there was some nice drumming here and there but I don't think I would listen to it again.

    Overall I quite liked that track but didn't care much for the vocals. Sound quality is quite meh-ish though. Bit chaotic but so was Bal-Sagoth.

    Hardly metal, but pretty much in love with this album atm.

    I had fun once, it was terrible.

    Got hooked into the new Wintersun album Hype as soon I realized it will be out in two weeks. Sure I didn't follow the crowdfunding campaign but I expected results much later. Way to go though. Will be picking it up on day one though. I guess I should have taken part on the crowdfunding because of bonuses (remastered old tracks). But then again, I haven't even listened to "Time I" yet. Waiting patiently for "Time II" to be released...

    I never cared much about Wintersun, sounds very boring to me. I don't understand why they're so populair.

    If you like melodic death, it's pretty hard to not like Wintersun's s/t. Time I was a disappointment to anyone that isn't a delusional fanboy, but that first album is pretty close to perfect. Ensiferum's s/t and Iron are better, though.

    As much as I despise Jari at this point, that live footage sounded really good and the snippets of the new album unfortunately sound really promising. I'll give it a few spins on Spotify and if I consider it anything above a 3.5/5 I'll probably pick up a physical copy. It'd be pretty hypocritical of me to not support the band if I like their music after preaching to separate the art from the artist.

    In closing: It's fine to not like Wintersun or get the hype, do you and like what you like. Also go listen to Ensiferum's s/t and Iron because they are literally perfect.
    Keep up with what I'm rating here and my last.fm here

    I only really liked the first song on Wintersun's self-titled. Maybe it's time to re-visit that album. I also never listened to a full Ensiferum album. I might consider it.

    What really surprised me is that this song actually got me kinda looking forward to the new album. I don't re-visit their old stuff often and I thought there wasn't really a way for them to get me more interested again but going even faster and more technical somehow did it lol.

    MDM is my area. But Wintersun (And any type of bands who sound closely like that, Norther, Children of Bodom, Ensiferum etc) I just don't like.

    Anyway, here's a small EP consisting of 3 tracks. MDM/Folk metal, I love the bagpipes in this band, best on the second track.



    and I really like this album. Like the second half of this track more.

    New Paradise Lost single (The Longest Winter), and Limbonic Art album out today. Paradise Lost track is pretty okay. Haven't heard the Limbonic Art album yet.

    Don't bother with the Limbonic Art one. It's less shit than the previous release, but that's about all the positive I can say about it. Long as it's only half of the original duo, I don't think it'll ever get back to the golden age.

    This pretty much sums up my feelings as well. It is an okay album, better than the previous ones, but without Morfeus it just isn't Limbonic Art, and this album is nowhere near In Abhorrence Dementia or Ad Noctum.

    From the upcoming Drudkh/Paysage d'Hiver split.



    Drudkh really needs to go back to their Ukrainian folky roots. These melodies are just not their trademark. The track itself isn't bad, but there's basically no change in pace or anything that makes it interesting.
