A year late to the party, but I'm relieved to confirm that I do like Kamelot even without Roy Khan. ;D

Black metal. It's not all guitars and screams and satan and church burnings. Sometimes you need to take a break from all that and just do an arts and crafts project.

I have been completely swamped with requests to give a mid-year list of what albums I like that have been released this year. It's insane. I kept putting it off, but now some are getting quite violent, so I will acquiesce and post a simple list. I hope this will placate ... well you know who you are! A more detailed list will arrive in December. Be calm and listen to metal.

Koldbrann - Vertigo (black)
October Falls - The Plague of a Coming Age (folk/doom/black)
Essence - Last Night of Solace (thrash)
Procession - To Reap Heavens Apart (doom)
Ade - Spartacus (death)
Abomnium - Coffinships (black)
October Tide - Tunnel of No Light (melodic doom/death)
Immolation - Kingdom of Conspiracy (death)
Inferior - Unsoiled (thrash)
Exeloume - Return of the Nephilim (thrash/death)
Agathodaimon - In Darkness (gothic/black)
Throne of Heresy - Realms of Desecration (death)
Intronaut - Habitual Levitations (progressive)
Sonic Reign - Monument in Black (black)
Lychgate - Lychgate (black)
Hela - Broken Cross (stoner/doom)

(All available on Spotify if you want to check any out)

Since I made the above post about 4 months ago I have added the following albums to my 2013 playlist:

Havok - Unnatural Selection (thrash)
Sons of Aeon - Sons of Aeon (melodic death)
Seth - The Howling Spirit (black)
Orpheus Omega - ResIllusion (melodic death)
Acacia - Tills Doden Skiljer Oss At (atmospheric doom/black)
Thrawsunblat - Wanderer on the Continent of Saplings (melodic folk/black)
Kryptos - The Coils of Apollyon (heavy/thrash)
Stellar Master Elite - II: Destructive Interference Generator (black/doom)
The Vision Bleak - Witching Hour (gothic)
Necrophobic - Womb of Lilithu (death/black)


I may or may not try to do a top 10 (or whatever number) around Christmas.

Christian Metal Singer Tim Lambesis Pleads Guilty in Murder for Hire

The singer of the Grammy-nominated Christian metal band As I Lay Dying pleaded guilty to his role in a murder-for-hire plot.

Carlsbad resident Tim Lambesis entered the change of plea in court Tuesday, admitting that he hired a hit man to kill his estranged wife.

As a result of his change of plea, Lambesis will serve nine years according to a court clerk...

So, I have plenty of Viking Metal to listen to (by plenty, I mean Amon Amarth), but is there a good Roman themed 'dark' metal band?  And good is the operative word.  I have listened to Occulus Ex - I, Caligula.  They're kinda stupid, IMHO.  

Perhaps not as good as Amon Amarth - who can be - but close enough for government...err res publica...work?

The band Ade that I mentioned above has Greek and Roman influenced themes I think. Check out here for specific lyrics. Various songs are on Youtube, Spotify, etc. Does it have to be Roman, or can it also be Greek?

I will take a look at them.  Greek would be cool too.

You might want to check The Return of the Black Death by Antestor too. It's not exactly Folk Metal but for some reason I've always thought of it as a sort of Viking Metal. Here's one of their songs.

For folk metal, Svartsot's first album is really good, and then of course there is the mighty Arkona of Russia which crushes all else.

I'm still gonna look up some more Greek and Roman themed bands, I just got a bit sidetracked. I would have done it yesterday, but I was/am still in the process of catching up on the new albums for this year.

Speaking of... Manowar rerecorded Kings of Metal. Meh. Older Manowar albums usually seemed like half filler and half cheesy goodness, but KoM was probably my favorite by them, and was their most consistent effort IMO. But this new version... this makes me want to leave the hall.

Now that more important matters are taken care of (and he is staying in jail a while)...

As I Lay Dying

"A good starting point is to clarify some things that have often been falsely reported. Tim was not a Christian at the time of his arrest, nor was As I Lay Dying a Christian band in 2013. It hadn't been for some time and, to the best of my knowledge, only one of the people playing in the band even claimed to be a Christian at that time..."

I have no idea what you would also consider "good" (or for that matter what subgenre or vocal style you'd prefer). Luckily Youtube links are easy enough to provide and don't take too long to check out, so I didn't do too much trimming from the list.

Roman
Ex Deo - Romulus (symphonic death)
Centvrion - Snow Covers Imperial Alps (heavy/power)
Son of Aurelius - The Farthest Reaches (technical death)
Impervum - War of Titans (power)
Gotland - Gloria Et Morte (black/folk)
Anguish Force - Follow the Rainbow (heavy/power/thrash)
Imperious - Three Legions March (black)
Hirpus - Nirguna (black)
Dominion Caligula - In Love With The Gods (death/doom/black)
Exordium Mors - Unleash Prometheus (black/thrash)
Neron Kaisar - Mother Of The Beast (black)

Greek
Tales Of Medusa - The Fatal Wounding Gaze (heavy)
Nekromentheon - Rise, Vulcan Spectre (thrash)
Däng - Tartarus: The Darkest Realms (heavy/doom/rock)
Validor - Hear Me Thor (folk/power)
Axe Battler - The Wrath of My Steel (heavy)
Wrathblade - Dolorous Shock (heavy)
Be'lakor - Of Breath And Bone (melodic death)
The Elysian Fields - All Those Tristful Winters (melodic black)
Kronos - Phaeton (death)
Athlos - The Dance Of Kouretes (heavy/black/folk)

Exactly how much the lyrics focus on Greek/Roman themes I didn't check, just that they did make significant use of it for lyrical content.

Sorry for the confusing way I phrased this. What I meant was that I know these bands use a good amount of Greek and Roman themes in their music, but I don't know if it's just in a few songs each album or if that's the theme for all the songs.

Where's the '80's with the extended middle finger or the punk scene?

It's actually a two finger backwards peace sign. The true "middle finger" salute of all legit punks of that era.

"Do not tempt the Mor thy Mod."

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

Now that more important matters are taken care of (and he is staying in jail a while)...

As I Lay Dying

"A good starting point is to clarify some things that have often been falsely reported. Tim was not a Christian at the time of his arrest, nor was As I Lay Dying a Christian band in 2013. It hadn't been for some time and, to the best of my knowledge, only one of the people playing in the band even claimed to be a Christian at that time..."

You skipped the hopeful part:

Quote
Tim has spent much of the last year reevaluating what originally convinced him to abandon belief in God. I have gathered that after much brokenness and repentance he sees things differently, considers himself a follower of Jesus, someone submitted to the will of God, or whatever you want to call it. That’s for him to talk about when he’s comfortable and only time will tell if he is sincere.

True, I did not quote that particular part written by Tim in the third person so that it sounded like someone else talking about Tim rather than Tim talking about himself while pretending to not be Tim and sabotaging the efforts of his former bandmates. But the statement is only what Tim has 'gathered' about Tim, presumably from talking with Tim, and Tim will wait to see if Tim is sincere.  :D

As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis Sentenced to Six Years in Prison

As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis has been sentenced to six years in prison for attempting to hire a hitman to murder his estranged wife. The sentence was handed down earlier today (May 16) by Judge Carlos Armour of the San Diego Superior Court.

In February, Lambesis pleaded guilty to murder-for-hire charges. He was originally slated to be sentenced on May 2, but the hearing was delayed until today. Lambesis faced up to nine years in prison, but was given six during today’s sentencing...
