Rhapsody of Fire - The Eighth Mountain
It's been sitting there for a month, and I just can't bring myself to listen to it. I've heard enough of that cinematic stuff, and it doesn't interest me enough to find out if this one is any better.
You won't like it but it's great for what it is. People are just tired of this stuff but I lap it up with a big spoon. The song Master of Peace is my fave probably.
Soen - Lotus
one or two very good songs though.

Just curious, which ones? There are two standouts to me, so I wonder if you hear them that way too.
Martyrs, Rival and Lunacy are my faves. Love those 3. Ok love might be pushing it lol but I like'm a lot. Lascivious is quite good too.
Candlemass - The Door To Doom Miss Rob Lowe.
That's the one thing about it I don't mind. Rob was great, but I have no complaints about Johan's singing.
He just doesn't have anything really great about his vocals. Rob Lowe had this sombre melodic quality which I enjoyed.
Rob wouldn't have made these songs less boring.
Probably right there.
West Bound - Vol 1 - Horrendous sound
Absolutely. Roy Z would be turning over in his grave, if he wasn't playing on this one.
Apart from the sound I also find the songs flat and uninteresting despite the singer being reasonable.
What's on the horizon for March:
In Flames - I, the Mask - we'll see. should be better than last crap anyway.
It has to be better than "Battles". That one was awful. I think I'm content with "Sounds Of A Playground Fading" being the only one I'm big on.
You're a nu flames fan lol. Jester Race brother.. get with the program!(I know I know you don't like death metal..)
Queensr├┐che - The Verdict - Nos sharpening his knife as we speak!
Nah. I'm not even going to listen to it, unless it gets shoved in my face.
You need to listen bro to tell us how much it sucks. Otherwise we can't listen without prejudice as George Michael once said!
Bloodbound - Rise of the Dragon Empire - Nos ready to reuse the knife he already decapitated Queensryche with!
Actually the latest video they released is great. You might actually like it as the melody doesn't really sound like anybody since you lambast them for aping this band and that.
Come to think of it the opening riff sounds a bit like Nightwish lol! The chorus is SO catchy though. It also reminds me of Amberian Dawn a bit.
