I knew Marty Friedman was a thin guy, but this is...

...admirable, especially considering he's in his 50s.

So the new Opeth album, Pale Communion, is getting a much better response than Heritage. Does this mean that Mikael will finally admit that not all metalheads are narrow-minded losers, and that many people didn't like his last album simply because the music wasn't very good? Will he also come to terms with the fact that he has fallen into the mindset that many people do as they age, thinking that 'the music isn't as good as it used to be' and 'none of the new stuff is any good' and so forth, when the reality is that it isn't the genre that has significantly changed but rather the listener/criticizer?

Oh, and I agree that, while it has its issues, Pale Communion is much better.  8)

I really like Pale Communion. Then again, I also really like Yes and Genesis, which I feel Opeth is channeling in full force this time around (even moreso than in Heritage).

I've listened to the new Empyrium album, The Turn of the Tides, once so far. I was very disappointed. I'll give it another try, though (I didn't immediately warm up to Weiland.)

If you're into traditional heavy metal, the new Accept album Blind Rage is very quality. Check out the single Stampede.

Exodus has a new album coming out and they are back on top! They have Steve Souza back on vocals and he is killing it.

The Darkthrones- Californian Hunger

The Wounded Kings - Consolamentum (England; doom metal; sample)

I finally got around to listening to this. It's a solid album, but my initial feeling is that it doesn't quite match up to The Shadow Over Atlantis. I definitely need to give it a few more spins though.

Oh, really? Darn. Well that kinda stinks. Why didn't you tell me this before I sold my soul to the devil in exchange for the abilities to shriek and shred? Bad form on your part to not say something sooner, to be honest.

I didn't mean it like that. I don't think it's Satanic just giving my opinion that I think it's not wonderful to my ears.
