    PLASTIC EUKARIOTE - 2018 Forum Awards

    When is the deadline for voting, because it will take some time?

    I'm late for the party, obviously. Whatever. Pretty solid hard rock, with great guitar tune (anybody surprised? Jorn Viggo is DA MAN) and some the dirtiest vocal lines that ever came from Floor's throat (Big Boy, boy!). Also I'm not sure if it really can be rated just as hard rock. Paragon, Drifting Islands, Timebomb don't quite fit in the category and sound more as good ol' heavy metal. Also who else thinks Paragon would have fitted perfectly in Masterplan's debut? I really was waiting for Jorn Lande to appear out of nowhere and yell "Just step into the liiiiiighht!" Highlights: Paragon, Drifting Islands (thank you guys! Jansen sisters dueting, or better say dueling, was something I've been waiting for long time), Timebomb, Big Boy (Floor channeling her inner Skin and Jorn Viggo wizarding on that guitar, meow!) and I Need. Now as I think of it, this one should have made it in the list Album of the year.
  3. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, forum! I've been absent for a while and probably won't be very active this year too. Strange how this topic is missing. Here you can rate the best releases for the 2018 in your list. Here comes me with some of the albums that grabbed my attention: 3. Seventh Wonder - Tiara. 8/10 Probably because it was long waited album for me I'm quite picky. It has great moments musically. The concept however is not that much interesting, or at least hadn't been shown that good as for example Mercy Falls. (What a comparation) 2. Riverside - Wasteland. 9/10 It is not an easy task to come up with a gem as this, especially if you loose one of the masterminds behind your music in such horrific way. Riverside succeeded. 1. Amorphis - Queen of Time 10/10 Under the red cloud there's the tresure of the great musicianship. Amorphis really outdid themselves with this one. Easily the best album they've released after Elegy and this tells a lot.

    Seventh Wonder

    BY THE LIGHT OF THE FUNERAL PYRES... What an explosion! Totally worth the long waiting! Yes, Tiara doesn't beat Mercy Falls but MF is a kind of album you make once in your whole career.

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    Is that so bad? Electronic sounds can be heard in Elegy too, and it is classic Amorphis' album. I wouldn't mind some saxophone either.

    Sounds really cool. And people, they have stated several times it's gonna be hard rock project a la Foo Fighters and Skunk Anansie. Why then you are surprised it's hard rock?

    I couldn't manage to attend the Varna concert but man, it seems the organisation was even worse than the usual BG level and that's a thing I thought to be impossible. Congratulations Tsonko, you made it!

    Yup. The birth of her daughter too.

    Dunno. In the same time Floor only appeared in "flopping and meaningless" album as The Source, sang in the "total letdown" of a DVD "Ayreon Universe" and will be releasing an album with the guitarist of the totally non known band Pagan's Mind. I am not counting the DVDs she released with Nightwish. Dark Element had its moments thought.

    Hi, Troy! Just curious, have you ever thought about playing the kaba-gaida?

    Hi Floor! When we can expect that video from Northward you've posted some weeks ago is in making? Here one squeaking fangirl is waiting!

    Considering how much their live shows in the past years are: visuals-fireworks-backing tapes, could the extraordinary thing finally be actually playing the damn songs the way they were originally recorded? They have 5 musicians right now in the band, one of whom is a multi-instrumentalist. Is it so big problem to rearrange the heavily orchestrated material so the all the band can actually perform their songs? By the way the accordion jam in Wishmaster is not a problem, the problem is that Netta played the guitar parts on that accordion better than Emppu.

    Wait, wait, WHAT? If this is true, that would be the dumbest decision in the whole metal scene.
