Bitch don't you be mentioning CB along with portal and Terra Tenebrosa =p


Bashing CB was lame and unjustified from the get-go and it's even more lame now.

Yeah I did. I haven't been around much after ''09 though, but I was a regular during '06/'07/'08.

A World In their Screams is the one I love the most. I have so much love for that album that I almost never listen to the other Elend albums. In my opinion, they are very different. This one is the most violent, tortured and depressing. This album also contains the scariest "song" (more like piece of orchestral music, song makes it sound too trivial) I have ever heard in my life. Well I did get a good scare during a Messiaen organ concert in a cathedral with the lights out, but nevermind. The other albums are more ambient, and put less emphasis on the poems and brass instruments. It's the end of a trilogy, that focuses on that post-apocalyptic theme in those poems I was talking about. Also it's their last album. Kinda makes it even more special.
I am in the middle of translating those poems, I could send you a copy.

All in all, you haven't heard Elend if you haven't heard this one, in my opinion.


Ah I see. I've only been very active here since 2012 while before that I only used MS to rate stuff.

What you say about the album definitely makes me interested in it. Will surely check it out, so thanks. Oh, and yeah, if you're done translating, send me a copy via a PM (MS), if that's possible.

A lame copy of another band that I actually hate. Why it's unjustified to bash CB?

Because this is Metal Storm. You should know better than to say something negative about a popular band here - it rustles the jimmies of fanboys.

Because many bands are copying other bands or are similar to those bands. But when Caladan Brood does it lots of people all of a sudden take issue with that fact. On top of that, they even openly stated many times they worship Summoning, as well as doing multiple Summoning covers. They even said that without Summoning they wouldn't exist. Also, which bands nowadays are similar to Summoning and CB? I can't think of any to be honest. When looking at other genres, say melodic death metal, there are a ton of similar bands releasing albums nowadays. I don't see people saying the same things about those bands, yet in case of CB they do. When you look at it from an originality point of view, they're far more original than most other bands, whether you like them or not, since very few bands play a similar style.

I don't care much about the originality here. CB is copying summoning's sound, which I hate. It means that I will also hate CB's sound. Simple as that. From subjective point of view, CB's sound is pure shit on my ears.
Now, if you want to continue this discussion, quote me in CB's page instead of here.

Funnily there are actually people who enjoy Summoning and not CB and vice versa, but most people like or dislike both, that's true. Not going to continue the discussion. No need for that since you have made clear that you hate these bands, so there's not much to discuss. I only wanted to make clear it's lame (and unjustified, in my opinion) to bash a band simply because they sound similar to another band as there are many bands that sound similar to others.

+1 for the Moonsorrow album. Great list.
Maco - 27.08.2014 at 20:18  
I believe that Antithesis of Light is the best from Evoken. Crushing is the right word for that wonderful album.
mz - 28.08.2014 at 00:30  
I think you also will love The Angelic Process, Wormphlegm, Hjarnidaudi, Wormlust, N.K.V.D and mid era Shining.
Edit: I forgot that I had linked Alex's list. They are on that so ignore my comment.

Have you heard Quietus? That one is even better.

I like Quietus, but Antithesis Of Light is more oppressive, dark and better when it comes to atmosphere. Especially in the blast beats, just listen to "In Solitary Ruin" or the title track

And is the first Doom Metal album I could ever hear.
