Sir, we have located the Bioweapon.

College Slice

Saw Sonata Arctica last night here in London, and it was actually a really good show. I skipped the opening acts and drank lots of beer before heading in. They sound great live and have a really good energy about them. Saying that, the setlist was a bit disappointing, mostly consisting of their newer and more mid-tempo type stuff. I was hoping for the really fast stuff from the earlier albums but they didn't really do anything from those. Still, a good show well worth the money.

Someone recently posted a youtube link of a band that sounded almost exactly like Amon Amarth (amazingly similar). This might be too vague, but I can't seem to find that band/song anymore. Maybe post some that might be it?

Evocation's last album sounded pretty similar to modern Amon Amarth. Is that what you're thinking of?

Absu loving killed it. First time they've been to Milwaukee since '97. Played a really varied set favoring the old over the new. Trying to remember, I think they only played 3 songs combined off of the two new records (which I love so I actually would have liked a little more, but they have a huge catalog so hey). Goddamn Proscriptor's theatrics are just so loving good.

Hopefully it's not another 16 years before they come back.

Just went to see Vanderbuyst play live again last night. Probably about the fifth time seeing them and they keep putting on great shows. Even when the venue was pretty deserted...

Not sure how much coverage they've gotten overseas, but they are a class act and deserve a lot more attention.

I'm listening to it right now. Yeah, these riffs are cool. Ozzy's voice is pretty lovely as expected, but at least it sounds less digital than most of his solo stuff. The lyrics are pretty lovely, I wonder who's writing them now that Ward's out?

E: Geezer's bassline at the end of the song rules.

In some respects I'd rather let their old catalog stand on its own rather than doing another album. I doubt I'll get too many plays out of it, but Iommi as a musician is pretty good about not embarrassing himself so I'm sure it'll have its moments.


I can get behind this.

What was so wrong with them touring on their old catalog and maybe throw in a couple ozzy solo songs and some non-ozzy songs...

Well, then Ozzy would have to try and sing something that he didn't record, or maybe even something with more than an octave vocal range and that never ends very well.

I'm happy to see em make music again, and normally I'm not a curmudgeon telling old bands not to write new songs. But when there's a thirty five year gap between your last studio tracks recorded together and your new ones it might be time to leave it be.

I'd imagine the album's gonna be pretty listenable, but no one's looking to hear new music. Like I'm curious, and I guess it's a good reason to go on tour but every new song the could play could be replaced by something that's classic and I'd be more excited.

Ozzy's the worst live act I've ever seen but I'll probably see em if they come near me because I've never had the chance to see the original Sabbath lineup.

I dunno, there are a few solid riffs in there. The bass tone and drums do kinda sound like poo poo though.

15 years. They recorded two new tracks for the Reunion album back in '98. Your point still stands.

Was this a factor of his age or the fact that he's never been all that great as a singer in your experience? I've always thought his vocal quality degraded over the years and this was only amplified by the fact that he was always stressing it in the first place.

Speaking of Geezer Butler, he played on a track from that Device album which came out this week - if that counts as metal to the folks here I'm curious in peoples' thoughts on it.

Went to New England Metal and Hardcore Fest yesterday. I got there just in time for Goatwhore's set and was kicking myself that I missed Týr until I ran into Heri in the lobby and he was all "hey, no big deal, you catch us next time" in that friendly Scandinavian way of his.

There was a line of people step-dancing in the pit during Ensiferum's set. It started with one guy who was just ridiculously into it and people just started joining up with him. They'd link arms, form into a circle, dance around, and when the heavier riffs kicked in they'd just break into moshing for a few seconds and then go back to dancing. Folk metal, man.

Opeth, too. I will never get tired of Mikael's humor. He's an odd man but so much fun to watch.

Both. I think you're right on. Ozzy's voice worked great with Sabbath's music but it never really stood on its own, and non-techinical singers tend to have their voices degrade a lot faster than people who know what they're doing.

I think he announced retirement in about 1991 and in retrospect that would have probably been about the right time for it.

And if he can shamble up on stage with Iommi and Butler and mumble out NIB I'll be there cause I'm a sucker.

I'll let you know how that goes this Thursday. I'm there for Geezer and Iommi. Ozzy's not doubt going to kind of sour the whole thing for me but I owe it to myself to hear Geezer and Iommi rip out some riffs.

I'm just real sad the last time I saw Opeth it was their Heritage tour and it was a super chill, borderline boring set list. And the time before that, I didn't know their music super well. Oh well I guess.


And now wtf is up with Pain of Salvation finally having a US tour but they've hardly posted any dates!

Skipped the Metal and Hardcore fest because there were only like 5 bands I wanted to see, instead went to the acoustic Opeth show at a nearby Newbury Comics earlier that day.

Went to Paganfest a few days ago (holy poo poo Heidevolk is awesome live thank you thread for introducing me to them) and there was a literal human pyramid in the back of the pit waving a Finnish flag for part of Ensiferum's set. Kept kicking me in the head. Don't know how they managed to stay upright. Oh, folk metal shows.

I also met Gunnar from Tyr. That dude is personified.
