16:18 - PocketMetal Ok, that's fine. It took me 9 months to read it but it was literally the most life-changing experience of my life, I don't regret a second of it.
15:55 - Zaphod Nope, and I don't intend to. I could go on and explain why, but it'd take me multiple shouts and I'm not really feeling like explaining my opinion on modern epic fantasy. So let's just say the series is too long for me.
15:45 - PocketMetal I like modern fantasy the most, have you read Malazan Book of the Fallen?
15:43 - Zaphod I usually read fantasy and sci fi, but most modern epic fantasy doesn't do it for me.
15:38 - PocketMetal I usually read epic fantasy, it was even harder for me to suddenly go to space.
15:31 - Zaphod It might also have to do with the fact that the last book I did read was Dune and that was one of the best sci fi books I've ever read.
15:29 - Zaphod I'm still on the first book. It's hard to get through for me, but that might have more to do with the fact that I haven't read a book in 4 months (!) (I usually read quite often)

In Swathes Of Brooding Light marks the first album by England's black metal act Ebony Lake in a dozen years.
If I were forced to describe this album in three words, I would describe it thus:
Chaotic. Fucking. Mess.
There is a fine line between genius and insanity. Ebony Lake walks this line in much the same fashion as the guy on Cops who just blew a .254 into the breathalyzer does that field sobriety test. At some points the chaos synchs up into something awesome. At others times it synchs up to "make the bad people stop!" Think "Bungle-Sagoth."
