Huh. Wintersun put out a new album? Guess i'd waited so long that I forgot.

Anyone heard it yet? I'll get a copy when I'm in town on Monday, though it seems like AMG and others are a bit underwhelmed if the reviews are anything to go by.

Had a brief listen yesterday. Will have another listen but I never really saw what the fuss was about Wintersun. Too many power metal elements for it to properly grip me.

So - probably the wrong person to comment :D

Motorhead does Bowie, and does a dam fine job of it.

A few singles from old black metal names this year:

Satyricon:

They continue being Dad Black Metal. Still sounds fun, though.

Enslaved:

The Viking lads continue to get proggier.

Samael:

They might be on to something this time. Getting back to sounding epic.

Been a year or so. Guess it's time to try bashing my head against Above and Lux Mundi again. :-k

Not a bad effort, glad they're returning more to their previous vibe. The single doesn't really have an amazing hook at any point though.

Some more:


Yeah, it's not exactly their "poppiest" sound, but they've at least convinced me to give the full album a try.
