I'm joining you, though I've skipped the opener and gone straight into In The Shadow Of Our Pale Companion, my second favourite Agalloch song.

The real test for you will be when Haughm's vocals come in. Around 2:15. He does some cleaner stuff later.

Dark chocolate pwns the other chocolates. They all wish they were as cool as dark chocolate.

Touche.

It's on the second song, haven't heard vocals yet. Reminds me of the first couple tracks off IA by PT.

That first bit sounded like it hurt. But I like it when he's doing more of the singing and less of the ... rasping.

Oh, that's right, I remember that now! I'm glad the US didn't go quite THAT nuts with "simplifying" the language.

As I've said before, I love the English language. That is, Proper English. "Manoeuvre".

I really like his black metal rasp. Well, it's not quite a black metal rasp, but it's close. I think it's one of the most comprehensible rasps/growls in metal. But oh, it is totally an acquired taste. Took me a good while to get into it. I don't expect anybody to like that vocal style straight up.

Sounds like it would be sung by an orc.

I really do have a wide stretch of music that I like. AND I'm a music snob. Is that possible?

Or Englishified French word. Either way.

Some of the more pissed Scandinavian bands would like to think they're forest trolls ...

And there is a surprising amount of LOTR-themed metal. Indeed, one member of the infamous Mayhem took his stage name from LOTR: Count Grishnackh.

Maybe it was just old. Like maybe it'd been produced a year ago. I've had bad ones before. Then again, I've had really good ones before, too. Although I will say I like nestle's chocolate better, if we're talking mass-produced, household names. But Ghiradelli is the best. Oh me. Oh my. An orgasm in every bite.

You just keep outdoing yourself for posting the worst jokes on this thread. I'm very impressed.

Though Liam and I could outdo you in a flash with the worst joke we've ever heard.
