23:36 - Zaphod I like Finnish, but have no desire to ever learn it. If I wanted to study a language that's completely different from the ones I know it would probably be Arabic or something.
23:35 - Redn1ght If you are able to pronounce German and Italian you are nearly covered fully to pronounce Finnish the proper way. :p
23:28 - ScreamingSteelUS it's not as readily pronounceable to me as a non-speaker as, say, German, French, Italian, or Serbian might be. But have a go at Irish. What I've learned of its structure is confusing as hell, to say nothing of pronunciation.
23:27 - ScreamingSteelUS In regards to the Finnish conversation, Tolkien considered it to be the most beautiful language of all and modeled Quenya (the high Elvish tongue) on it. Don't have much contact with Finnish myself, so I wouldn't know, but
Finnish ambient melancholic metal band October Falls unveiled new details regarding their forthcoming album The Plague Of A Coming Age. The album will be unleashed this coming March 15th, on both CD and vinyl format and is already available for pre-order at this location. Check out also the full tracklist and artwork of the album below.
Of course this is not all. The band is also streaming a brand new song "Snakes Of The Old World", which you can listen through the Soundclud player below the album artwork and tracklist.
Official press release by Debemur Morti Productions: "On this new offering, the band continues to explore its exquisitely sonorous world, deeply melancholic, subtly aggressive and always divinely melodic. Once again, M. Lehto gathered gifted musicians around him for the recording: M. Tarvonen (Moonsorrow) on drums and S. Hinkka (Ensiferum) on bass. A very special guest contributed clean vocals on two songs: T. Joutsen (Amorphis). The visual art was imagined and painted by talented Argentinian Artist Santiago Caruso."

01. At The Edge Of An Empty Horizon
03. The Verge Of Oblivion

Well, sounds like October Falls but certainly not their best effort. No real progression in style despite taking quite some time since their last record. And why does there have to be that stupid guy on the cover
