00:59 - mz we need a website like MS for dark ambient, and I don't mean darkambientstorm.net or darkambientarchives.com
00:57 - Erik M. Karlabos, yeah that's true. I said "Russian folk doom bands", by which I simply meant folk doom bands that are Russian (such as Kauan and Raxa), not necessarily "Russian folk".
00:54 - Fearmeister Because Russian folk implies that the folk elements is based on Russian folklore
00:53 - Karlabos That's probably because the Russian folk metal tag doesn't make it clear whether it's "Russian folk" metal or Russian "folk metal". =P Raxa is the second case.
00:51 - Erik M. How am I confusing average with generic? Karlabos used the word "average", so I replied to that. Also, Raxa is folky as hell. What does it matter if the themes are about Central America?
00:46 - Erik M. Fair enough. I have the opposite since this sort of folk doom metal really clicks with me, as it's highly atmospheric/ambient. Its themes are also somehow appealing and refreshing. I like pretty much everything, really.
00:44 - Fearmeister Also, I think Erik is confusing 'average' with 'generic' :P
German metallers Die Apokalyptischen Reiter have just announced the departure of their latest guitarist Lady Cat-Man (who was playing on the band's latest album, entitled "Licht").
According to the band: "She will be replaced by Ady [picture] who will hit the stage with the band soon: for example on this year's Paganfest where Die Apokalyptischen Reiter will light autumnal fires as co-headliners! A new album is planned for 2010."
