I knew it was you.

I saw you reopened them - thanks. I don't mind them being closed after the next wave of threads start, as long as I always have some open for cut and pasting stuff.

And I was planning on doing the next four now, but I'm tired and need to get to bed, because, you know, I don't get to sleep in like so many here. Damn work.

He's supposedly going to produce the next Anathema album as well.

EDIT - Duh, I see you mention it later on.

Why are your expectations low for that one? Seems like possibly an excellent combination to me.

They (along with a few other bands at the time) inspired most metal.

Inspired? Sure. Are they metal? No.

I'm off to sleepville as well

Night all

Anathema.. yet another band I've been meaning to get into for the past few years. I've liked what I've heard.

At the time, they were known as heavy metal... at least according to people who were in the teens and twenties when it came out. Personally, I consider it classic rock. Not even hard rock.

EDIT: When I say "people" and generalize things, I really mean to say "people I know."

This is a true statement.

Because the three songs they've released online recently have all been absolute crap. I'm not too keen on about half of A Natural Disaster, and while I've no inherent issue with their life-affirming soft atmospheric rock direction of the last few years, I don't think it suits them. I think they still have another Judgement or at least A Fine Day To Exit in them, but they don't want to make it.

I agree the recent online material isn't up to previous standards, but I look at those more as works in progress than anything else. If and when SW gets involved, I'm sure his influence would create something very positive.

Yeah, "heavy metal" was first applied to Led Zep and similar hard/classic rock bands of that era. Certainly if you read the entry of heavy metal from that font of all reliable knowledge, Wikipedia, Led Zep feature centrally!

I would now consider them to be hard rock (I think "classick rock" is a redundant term), but they were one of the central bands to developing heavy metal and the term can be meaningfully applied to them.

I hope they just prove to be works in progress. I'd be more optimistic if it weren't for some of what's on A Natural Disaster. It'll be interesting to see what SW brings to the recording, and whether he just twiddles knobs or actually has creative input. His creative input on Opeth's Blackwater Park was certainly for the best.

Hey Ax, I bet you'd really dig Crippled Black Phoenix.
