18:11 - Monolithic Still I get myself involved in some of the topics she brings up, even though I don't spend my time discussing it extensively. lol
18:09 - Monolithic Well I wasn't really fond of her supporting something which was debunked by not a government figure but a regular person OVER and OVER.
18:05 - Erik M. Yeah, exactly. It all sounds "good", but not amazing by any means. I noticed you distanced yourself from Heike's FB posts, or am I wrong? She's becoming progressively annoying with her posts if you ask me.
18:02 - Monolithic I dunno, but I think FB is one big reason for that. I find it somewhere in-between. It hits the "good" bar on numerous occasions and sounds OK to me as well.
18:00 - Erik M. Why is that then? Btw, opinions on the new Opeth? So far it's far from bad, but far from great as well. I might already prefer it to Heritage though. I do dislike Mikael's whiny vocals though.
17:54 - Monolithic Yeah I don't get involved in MS discussions as much as I used to, either. :(
17:53 - Erik M. Behrad, no not anymore. ;) I'm online like twice a week or so. Well, not about my own lists in any case. Haven't updated most of them in many months, after all.
Midnattsol captures the imagination of their fans for the third time by whisking them away to the magical world of Nordic legends and sagas. The band, spearheaded by vocalist Carmen Elise Espenaes, continues to refine their characteristic sound and delivers a new jewel to the Gothic Metal scene. "The Metamorphosis Melody" is a charming collection of songs that sway among the harder tendencies of metal and the soothing melodies of atmospheric bliss. Heavy guitar riffs and thundering drums meet the emotive vocal lines and dreamy interludes that Carmen makes her own, while the rest of the band, notwithstanding, ennoble the tracks such as "Spellbound" or the beautiful ballad "Goodbye" with their musical expertise. The special magic of "The Metamorphosis Melody" is masterfully accentuated by Markus Stock (Empyrium, The Vision Bleak) of Klangschmiede Studio E, whose know-how allowed each instrument and vocal line just enough room to unfold. MIDNATTSOL has created an impressive and very charming album, which shines as brightly and mysteriously as the aurora borealis. The limited edition first pressing digipack includes a bonus DVD (Live at The Metal Female Voices Festival 2009)
