Even Less
Stupid Dream for sure. Though you like Pink Floyd, so I expect you'd quite appreciate The Sky Moves Sideways too. Just its tracklisting alone is enough to remind you of Wish You Were Here!

OK, could someone please wrestle the microphone away from the idiot who has control of the PA in Hyderabad? I'm trying to watch the Deccan Chargers vs Rajasthan, and this idiot keeps blaring "After me: 1 and 2 and 3 and 4, Deccan Chargers give us more!" I don't think he knows any other words! I'm on the verge of muting the TV/killing this guy.

Personally, I tend to think death metal is generally better, but black metal's best moments beat death metal's best. And I imagine not many people on this thread could even distinguish between black and death metal, so why am I rambling on ...?
It was pretty fantastic. We also talked about the Swedish Melodic Death Metal scene, which I find to be a bit of an oxymoron, but what can you do?

These days, the band seems particularly fond of playing Even Less and A Smart Kid live. I don't think they've done it this tour, but Don't Hate Me was a regular on the Deadwing Tour too.

Mute first... Kill later, when you need an album cover for your solo death metal project when Phail... phails.

In comparison to Tech Death, Melodeath makes sense as a label!

There is a melody ... if you can listen closely enough without your ears being mauled ...

This is true. We were specifically talking about Arch Enemy.

Holy shit! Can that woman scream too. I was absolutely blown away by her voice.

Yep! It's the Indian Premier League, a Twenty20 competition with shitloads of international players in it, including some of my favourite Kiwis. Remarkably, every game is on Aussie free-to-air TV, most live.

This bloody tournament's going to keep me up to 3am for the next month or so ...

ARCH ENEMY ARE FUCKING NUTS. I could not believe it when I heard their music and found out they had a female vocalist. She's got more balls than most men do!

I KNOW! We watched a live video of her, and then watched a video on Youtube of her showing exactly how she does it. Absolute craziness. Even though I'm not a metal fan, I can definitely respect what she's doing.
