11:54 - Overrwatcher I had to leave Knotfest after Trivium due to dehydration issues ($5 water when I'm broke), Carnifex was so fucking good. Got autographs and a busted nose. 100% worth.
11:52 - !J.O.O.E.! Everyone should stop arguing and listen to Crimson [link]
11:50 - Overrwatcher I oversimplified it quite a bit, my bad on that. Marcel is right, Opeth has growls but no other DM characteristics. DM-influenced? Definitely. Actually DM? Definitely not.
11:47 - Overrwatcher My god, people are STILL arguing about my late night Opeth post? To clarify, I meant that the average person will go "wow, death metal can be good", regardless of whether or not Opeth is DM.
10:24 - Joe Zombie Let's play a game. I'll post a track and you have to tell me if its Opeth, or Mumford & Sons.
10:08 - Mr. Strawberry Judas Priest's "Better By You, Better Than Me" is really a weird song (lyrically)
09:42 - Mr. Strawberry I'm not really sure..., but I hope no one will steal my name "Mr. Strawberry" as their band name. My name sounds really cool and smart anyway.
German folk metallers Die Apokalyptischen Reiter have released a brand new video for their song "Wir Reiten" (We Ride). The video is result of a cooperation with French movie maker Yann Arthus-Bertrand, features sequences from the movie Home, and can now be watched here.
"Wir Reiten" comes off the band's latest offering Moral & Wahnsinn, released in 2011.
The band talked about the experience: "When we watched Home for the first time, we were simply blown away by its grace and power. We got in touch with Fondation GoodPlanet and their chairman Bertrand, in order to search for possible ways to make this movie available to a wider public. There are only very few movies that are obligatory to watch in one's lifetime - and Home doubtlessly ranks among them. The combination of our music and sequences of Bertrand's movie goes way beyond the mere aesthetic value. Compressed to four minutes, it depicts the ultimate 'dream vs. nightmare' scenario of a world that has reached a crossroads."
