18:56 - Belegûr lol crap book , I'll move on without biting :P
18:41 - Hex_Omega Wacken last year: 132 bands, this year: 83 bands. What happened?
18:35 - Bad English Amon Amarth is not crap band and LOTR is better book as Harry poter
18:24 - Marcel Hubregtse crap bands taking names from a crap book. That does make sense, though.
17:14 - Belegûr I say so many, not all. There are a few that are great in my opinion.
17:10 - Belegûr Difference is, Amon Amarth don't even like Tolkiens work :P they said so themselves. They just liked the name. It's a shame that so many crap bands have taken all the cool names from Tolkiens world :P
17:02 - J. N. Amon Amarth took their name from LOTR, as well. Are they low nerds too?
We have been talking a lot about artwork lately here on Metal Storm and now sadly we have to report the passing of Oslo-based photographer/graphic artist Alf Børjesson. He was responsible for the artwork on Dimmu Borgir's 2001's Puritanical Euphoric Misanthropia, 2003's Death Cult Armageddon and the 2005 re-recording of Stormblåst.
Dimmu Borgir left the following message on the band's Facebook: "Our dear friend Alf Børjesson, rest in peace. Thank you for the creative times. Your art will forever live on. R.I.P."
