16:21 - mz what makes MS so great is the presence of Mahdi. Make MS Great Again
16:19 - Nimlot Spirit of Metal is like a rolling black metal logo?
15:58 - Karlabos I joined MA and Spirit Of Metal. MA has a good recommendation subforum, I'll give them that. But on the other hand there's not much more than that... Spirit of Metal is like this [link] so...
14:55 - Apothecary I can guarantee you that I would not know at least 75% of the metal bands that I do today had it not been for this site
14:54 - Apothecary We care about giving those who are just starting out and getting going their time of day and the exposure they deserve. It isn't JUST MS that does this, but we do seem to be where that attitude is strongest
14:54 - Apothecary What makes Metal Storm so great, and what has kept me around here, is that we focus on the metal scene AS IT IS EMERGING. We don't just care about pimping bands that are already well established and that people know about already
14:10 - Kuroboshi Me one of them. Proud (mostly) lurker since 10 years back. Mostly too busy with regular life to have time to review etc.
This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.
The concept of the band is based partly on the political overtones of the book Watership Down by Richard Adams. In the book, Efrafa is a fascistic warren, where women are oppressed and lives are subdued by a dictatorship. The band felt that the book dealt with human political institutions in a unique metaphorical way and thus decided to base a portion of the lyrics on it; Owsla representing the natural world and its battle to defend itself.
