I went for The Quiet Eternity. but I like the name The Quantum Enigma ... the new Mayan album wasn't half-bad but I wasn't blown away either , I hope the Epica album is better. judging by 2013 we definitely need better albums in the genre.

I was 90 % sure tha TQ stands for The Quantum, the only mystery was E. Paradoxaly that mystery was Enigma.

Well, who wouldn't?



Anyway, I have the impression all she can talk about nowadays is make-up.

She writes a lot of the lyrics, I don't think so..


Ok, make-up and quantum physics.

Who knows, maybe after our date she'll write a song about it. "True Love Is Elbow Deep".

Now taking bets to see if new Epica will be as lame as new Within Temptation.

Secondary bet: Which rapper will be appearing on the album?

I'm going for 50 Cent.

Okay, Jiri will bet. He believes that Fred Durst, Kid Rock, Pink, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West and Sharon Den Adel will perform guest vox. If not them, than at least Gaahl will show for some action.

Well, they said it will sound like "a mix between Design Your Universe and the good old days". I hope it's true, because it would be their best album ever.

What do most Metal titles mean these days?
It was easy when they were straight forward without any pseudo-intellectual garbage.

To be fair, this is a pretty straightforward title. It's about quantum theory, which I wouldn't call pseudo-intellectual at all, although their approach may or may not be the most "sophisticated" per se so it's hard to say how this will be perceived.

Not every band can release a Scream Bloody Gore.
