23:35 - Redn1ght If you are able to pronounce German and Italian you are nearly covered fully to pronounce Finnish the proper way. :p
23:28 - ScreamingSteelUS it's not as readily pronounceable to me as a non-speaker as, say, German, French, Italian, or Serbian might be. But have a go at Irish. What I've learned of its structure is confusing as hell, to say nothing of pronunciation.

Mgla's Presence is the latest obscure underground black metal oddity that has reached me through various strange channels and while it is in no way ground breaking or innovative, it does at least to some extent challenge my usual assertion that black metal elitists are a group of idiots.
