08:29 - Unhealer First use of sax in metal I can think of is on Pan.Thy.Monium albums. It had to be Swano.
08:10 - AngelofDeth you're right, a little weird to get used to but it works pretty dang well in that song. It needs to be stylized to metal rather than just sticking a weird 80s sax break down in the middle of a song
08:04 - AngelofDeth didnt know other bands were doing it too. Very strange. Ill check that out though
06:56 - hadriel Listen to Ihsahn's On the Shores and all of the doubts anyone would ever have about the sax being in metal will be squelched
05:28 - Unhealer It's because it's just awesome <3 It really fits metal.
05:13 - Zaphod Turisas, Whispered and Behemoth are just the ones that don't pull it off, there are plenty that do.
