23:23 - s_t_s hey not that I miss them so but fo you know where band Deathstars's gone ? Seem they vanished...
21:47 - Risto It's their own tongue-in-cheek description. The vocals tip it over to the avantgarde side I think.
19:55 - Moose Many thanks to whoever introduced me to Astronoid via the shoutbox the other day. Their new album, Air, is magnificent. I can even understand why some refer to their genre as "Dream Thrash".
19:12 - Opethian @Apothecary, I got to meet him when I saw them play at Denver this past January. Dude is down to earth and was a privilege to get to meet him and Dallas \M/
18:18 - Apothecary Yeah, you wouldn't want to get in a fight with him though. Just check out this vid lol, apparently at this show some dumbass was throwing beer on his pedals [link]
18:01 - Marcel Hubregtse Karl is a small,. albeit quite fattish mf. He is smaller than I am. And I am only 5'11"

Hailing from Samara Russia, Wine From Tears debuted their first album Through The Eyes of a Mad (a mad what? I have no clue…) back in 2009 via Bad Mood Man Music.
After the intro concluded, I knew immediately what I was in for, and I wasn't disappointed. I have to admit, I'm a huge sucker for this sound. Wine From Tears plays a melodic death/doom metal with a melancholic mood that never lets up (think early Katatonia, early Paradise Lost, Saturnus, Officium Triste, etc). The melodic riffs are the main event here, but they are interspersed with some heavier crunchy sounding riffs as well. Occasionally the tempo picks up and things start to sound more aggressive, although this never seems to draw away from that melancholic mood. I really like the keyboards too, because they don't overshadow the melodic guitar riffs. Instead they supplement them nicely. The bass and drums don't really stick out, and they aren't really anything special. The vocals are mostly well done growls with a few clean vocals thrown into the mix (there are even female vocals on "Feeding the Angel").
