    Sabaton

    I just found this because Floor shared it on facebook Awesome video, and I like the song, but it's not one of Sabaton's best imo

    The Floor thread

    The whole Idol / Idols franchise originated in the UK, actually. Another big one that is from The Netherlands is The Voice.

    Eluveitie

    There's only 3 songs on the album that are as good as I hoped they all would be: Deathwalker, Threefold Death and Rebirth. Black Water Dawn almost makes that list, but the guitar solo ruins it imo. I have to say though, "Deathwalker" is amazing. This one song is already worth the album purchase.

    Eluveitie

    Well, to me, this so far seems true with the new album, but it wasn't true for "Origins". That one is pure greatness to me, start to finish. My initial impression of "Ategnatos" is that while I like it, it's not as good as the previous few albums. I really feel like some of the band's magic left together with the 3 members that quit in 2016. I gotta give them bonus points for the digipak CD though. It's really nice that they have a booklet with not only song lyrics, but also thoughts and explanations about the songs, like the ones they put on YouTube.

    Rage Of Light

    Gonna give this one more bump:

    Rage Of Light

    Rage of Light is a young Swiss band that define themselves as "trance metal / melodic death metal". It features singer Melissa Bonny, who's also known from her other band Evenmore and her collaborations with Serenity and Warkings. Their early music is OK, but the first time I really noticed them was when they covered one of Amon Amarth's most well known songs, Twlight of the Thunder God: I mean wow, this is as good as covers get! Then, in the same year, they shot another video and released this song, which is still my favorite: At this point I was hooked. I lost track of how many times I played "mechanicals" and hoped the band would start writing more seriously and produce a full length album. As it turns out, that was the case. They signed with Napalm records and their first album is going to be released March 29th. I can't wait!

    Battle Beast

    A quick look at the YouTube comments shows you that many people agree

    Finally a real Battle Beast song! I had given up hope...

    Within Temptation II

    The more I listen to RESIST, the more I am convinced that Supernova is the best song on it! Also, as much as I like Trophy Hunter, it feels a bit out of place... it's so different from the other songs. Like it deserves its own album, with other heavier and more guitar focused songs like Trophy Hunter. The two songs I find myself skipping every time are Firelight and Mad World. This will probably be unpopular because I know many people like Mad World, but I just can't stand it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Epica

    I usually don't care much about covers, but I thought this was really good

    Eluveitie

    meh, I don't care much for that one tbh

    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    They sure are amazing! I took a leap of faith after hearing "Rising" a few times and ordered both their albums, and after listening to them I have no regrets!

    Reaction videos (to music)

    Whenever YouTube suggests me one, I instantly remove it from my feed and choose "I don't like the video" + "I'm not interested in this channel". That's how I feel about them >.>

    Within Temptation II

    Well that ending sounded hopeful, next WT album in 2021?

    Within Temptation II

    Where you get this from? All I see is "with another band", which does not mean WT is the opening band

    Delain

    Yeah but Alissa White-Gluz and George Oosthoek are much better at it

    The Upcoming Nightwish Album

    I liked all the videos and hope they''ll do that again! I don't mind not having many (any?) album details in them, I am patient and can wait all the way till the album release if necessary. With some bands I like having some info early on to see whether the music will be good, or whether it will be something I can appreciate, but with Nightwish I don't have to worry about either of those.

    Delain

    Just listened to the new songs, and I'm not a fan of the growls. Even though I'm very much a fan of growls in general. I think Delain better stick to Charlotte's vocals.

    Xandria

    For old time's sake: Sry for potato quality, but the video was uploaded in 2006 so it may heve been good quality then

    Within Temptation II

    Yeah 10 songs is really minimal, 9 would barely be worthy of the name "album" anymore... especially since none of the songs are very long.
  22. NighttimeBird

    Within Temptation II

    I disagree... quality is too inconsistent. If every song were as good as Supernova / RYB / Trophy Hunter, then it could have been.

    Infected Rain

    This just appeared in my youtube feed, I got stupid excited because I had no idea that they were making new music... or that they signed with Napalm! My first impression of the song is that it's musically not very different from their previous album, but the vocals and lyrics are a bit better!
