    Well, it looks like a new single's coming out on November 2nd. Very excited!

    Stratovarius - Twilight Time Also ordered one of those limited edition Cradle of Filth Halloween shirts, because I'm terrible. :P

    Sirenia

    Well, I think I like this one a lot better than the first single. Has an almost power metal vibe to it, and doesn't sound quite as...well, confused.

    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    Probably one of the most beautiful songs in existence!

    Stratovarius

    I noticed there's no topic about Stratovarius, so I've decided to start one. Though I could be mistaken, if I am feel free to move this post to that topic! From Wikipedia: "Stratovarius is a Finnish power metal band that formed in 1984. Since their formation, they have released 16 studio albums, 4 DVD and 5 live albums. Along with German bands Helloween, Blind Guardian, and Gamma Ray, Stratovarius is considered one of the leading and most influential groups of the power metal genre. In its history, the band has gone through many chaotic lineup changes and since 1995 there are no founding members of the band that remain. Currently, the longest standing member is singer Timo Kotipelto, who joined in 1994." I've gotta say, "Enigma: Intermission II" is pretty good for a b-sides compilation. It's a collection of b-sides and rarities from the last few albums (the ones without Timo Tolkki), and there are certainly some hidden gems there. I almost want to call it one of my favorite albums of the year, even though it's...well, a b-sides comp. Also, I've actually quite liked the last few albums. Wasn't that fond of the self titled album or the "Elements" ones. Obviously, I prefer the classic era ("Episode", "Visions", "Fourth Dimension" etc.) but I think they're back in a good place now.

    Dark Sarah

    Once again, Dark Sarah release a great album in "The Golden Moth". I honestly think they're one of the most interesting symphonic metal bands going right now and I'm still surprised they aren't bigger. They deserve to be bigger for sure. If I had one issue with the new album, it'd be the one or two parts with voice acting (the "you're SO annoying!" part, for example). However, that's a pretty minor gripe as it doesn't pop up very much and it doesn't ruin the album!

    Nevermore, Sanctuary, Warrel Dane

    I was honestly devastated when Warrel Dane passed, Nevermore were one of my earliest metal discoveries. I remember seeing the video for "I, Voyager" on Headbanger's Ball (back when that was indeed still a thing!) and falling in love immediately. As a result, I have a soft spot for "Enemies of Reality", even if that's one of the more polarizing Nevermore albums. My favorite is probably "Dreaming Neon Black" these days, though!

    Sirenia

    I think I like that clip of "Into the Night" better than the entirety of "Love Like Cyanide", I'm not gonna lie. Has an almost power metal vibe to it. Obviously, I'll wait to judge until the song is officially out in full but yeah! Also, I agree - Sirenia's production can sometimes...not be all that great. As much as I enjoy "Perils of the Deep Blue", it sounds rather compressed. "The Seventh Life Path", which is probably my favorite of the Ailyn era from a songwriting standpoint, is even worse when it comes to compression and overly loud mastering...

    Aeverium

    Two predictions: - Aeva is joining Xandria officially, hence why she and this band have parted ways. - Aeva will then leave Xandria after like...one album, considering the band's track record regarding the way they treat their vocalists. Or maybe I'm just cynical... In any case, good luck to the new singer!

    Within Temptation II

    I love it when metal videos actually have a budget to work with. This video's pretty cool.
  11. Werewolf

    Sirenia

    I liked the last 3 albums, but it's right back down the gutter with this new one if this single is anything to go by...
  12. Werewolf

    Kamelot

    The setlist is very Haven-heavy, almost like they're still touring on it despite a new album. This isn't a complaint, by the way - I loved "Haven", and I'll probably love the DVD!

    Within Temptation

    https://withintemptation.probitymerch.com/resist-pre-order $23 is a bit steep for a CD, I've gotta say! EDIT: Okay, so it's cheaper through MerchNow. Thank the heavens. http://spinefarm.merchnow.com/catalogs/within-temptation

    Northward

    I like this song a lot more than the first one! Catchy, punchy, and fairly heavy. This one, I actually can imagine listening to all the time. The chorus is great, as is the guitar work - and yeah, that bridge is incredible.

    Within Temptation

    So, over the years, I've noticed something... Mother Earth - "I can't believe they dropped the growls. It's obvious they're just trying to be more accessible and mainstream. Enter was so much better." The Silent Force - "Wow, this band sold out. Clearly, the first two albums are their only real metal albums!" The Heart of Everything - "Okay, so they've definitely sold out now, this is just like Evanescence! Clearly, the first three albums are the only ones worth listening to." The Unforgiving - "This is so totally not goffik. Truly, this is the pinnacle of selling out, their first four albums being the only good ones." Hydra - "Wow, a rapper? In my Within Temptation? No one has sold out as hard as this, no one." I wonder what's going to happen with "Resist". Oh, and for the record, I do like the new single - different for them in some ways, but still recognizably WT in the way the melodies are written.
