    Ahhh! That explains it! I haven't seen one in ages but keep hearing people mentioning them still!

    And yes, America always get great tours! Same as europe actually for the most part. For some reason we don't get the decent ones in the UK!

    Amon Amarth with Ensiferum! :eek: and we have to settle for seeing them play probably 25 mins opening Unholy Alliance...sucks! They're probably not gonna do a headlining tour are they?

    I think Ive been to Resurrection Records shop that had a creepy downstairs with an awful toilet that I refused to use. They had Dew-Scented CDs there which I was very impressed with. Had a lot of obscure stuff too at lower prices than high street retail shops. I loved browsing through it. Luckily, I'm going to UCL... :p:
    er yeah never used their toilets so can't comment on that. browsing really is fun though - i spend ages in there and don't really buy anything cos im poor!

    There's probably better reception in Europe than in the UK. I was speaking to this band and they were saying that it's quite dead in England in terms of attendance. You only get a good number of people if you're right at the top of the pile- Metallica, Dragonforce, etc- the most popular bands. But the very same bands that has very little people in the UK have much bigger fanbase in other countries in Scandinavia, etc. England isn't just metal enough for bands, I guess. :p: So we get crappy stinky tours with crappy bands.

    I have seen Amon Amarth headlining last year. That was a good bill cos they had Finntroll as co-headliners. But (despite plenty of opportunities) I have never seen Ensiferum, and Belphegor have released one of my favourite albums of 2008. That is one hell of a lineup!

    In fact, Amon Amarth were in the UK a stupid number of times in the last 2 years. They did a tour with Wintersun (!!) and Tyr, which I missed. They did that tour with Finntroll that I just mentioned. And they supported Dimmu Borgir. And now they are supporting Slayer.

    I like me a bit of Death. Do Arsis count as tech death? I'm pretty crappy with my genres.

    My fav releases so far this year (pretty much all been mentioned although I feel like I'm forgetting something):
    Opeth
    Testament
    Kalmah
    Scar Symmetry
    Meshuggah

    Ihsahns new release is pretty good too, its also one of the few 'proggy' types of metal I can listen to, along with Opeth. Most prog metal just makes me wince

    Uh-oh. Testament...Well, I better check out their album pretty soon. 2008 has been a pretty poor year for me in terms of albums so far.

    Anyone going to the Protest the Hero+Unearth+Despised Icon+some other bands tour this summer? I think it's called the Never say die tour or something. I'm hopefully seeing it when they play at Corp in Sheffield.

    I wanna see Unearth but I'm not too fussed about the rest of them. Depends how much it costs.
