I think this might be my front-runner for album of the year.

Oh fuck. I'm on it.

This one and Bossk's Audio Noir. I still need to listen to MotA, though.

"Stages" is such a marvelous piece of music. So emotional, so somber and yet so marvelous.

No metal at all and also not doom als not hard rock, maybe rock, almost singer songwriter sort of stuff, just a great slab of music.

Good call Marcel. Sometimes it's better not to classify, not to genre tag, just shut the fuck up and listen and enjoy. Very emotional stuff. I feel his pain.

I am the first to genre tag and such. But it is impossible in this case
It's emotional stuff like Nick Cave, Leanord Cohen and such.
