Delain - "We Are the Others"


Oddly enough, the music video used a different take of the song, and that's actually what I heard first.  I thought it was a little early for Delain to start experimenting since it's only their third album, but after hearing the studio version, I feel a bit better with the band's direction.

I also really love the message in this one.  It's both a tear-jerker and uplifting at the same time. :)

Orphaned Land - "The Path, Part 2 - The Pilgramage To ORShalem"

I think it took me about 20 listens to ORWarriOR before I realized that the latter half of "M I ?" is just a reprise of one of the melodies in this song. This album seriously is a grower. :lol:

Orphaned Land - "Codeword: Uprising"

The fact that the lyrics of the song spells out "THE STORM STILL RAGES INSIDE" as an acrostic TWICE is really cool. :o I know the title track of Mabool does the same thing, albeit just once. I also like how the final "E" of the second acrostic appropriately starts the line "Ending the storm that still rages inside" - nice little touch. :P

Who knew melodeath could be this catchy? :lol: (No clean vox, either, btw :P)

Isn't that partly the point of the genre? :P


Epica - "Deconstruct"

Like so. :D

And the genre police/purists just slammed a couple of axes into your skull for implying that Epica is melodeath. :P

Wintersun - "Death And The Healing"

Even though Time I is one of the best albums ever created, I still find myself enjoying the debut a little more. Probably has something to do with the fact that Jari Mäenpää has only one solo on Time I but at least one in every song on the debut. :lol:

Epica - "Martyr Of The Free Word"

Yeah, sorry, TAW - I do really like them and I know they're supposed to live up to their band name, but the three albums I own/have in my iTunes (Conspiracy, DYU, and RFTI) are all over 75 minutes and the length gets in my way a little. :?

The length doesn't really bother me all that much.  Most of it is just a matter of how well the album keeps your attention, so it's not so much how long a song is...


Epica - "Kingdom of Heaven (A New Age Dawns - Part V)"


It's more a matter of how long it seems, and this song sure doesn't seem almost 14 minutes long! :P

Amberian Dawn - "Evil Inside Me"

Gradually, gradually, I've been falling in love with this band.  The best comparison might be Wishmaster Nightwish combined with Stratovarius.  Too bad Heidi Parviainen parted ways with them last year, though, because her voice is definitely a big part of the charm.

Heard of 'em (well, Finnish and collaborated with Timo Kotipelto, what did you expect? :P). Honestly, though, I think female-fronted symphonic metal doesn't really do much for me anymore. :?

Sentenced - "No One There"

Seems like I now have a firm cycle in place... This year and for the three before that, I have been in my lowest spirits at the beginning of the year. This year's situation is once again shitty, and I don't know how quickly things can pick up like last year (if ever at all in 2013), so back to this stuff for now. :|
