 - Live & Acoustic

To tell you the main idea of my review in a few words, this is the ultimate music experience.

Thurisaz, a band who mainly plays doom and death metal, decided to go acoustic twice in their hometown. That was in late '14, and that was because their style included some heavy songs but some softer ones too, which were their greatest successes (e.g. Endless...). These songs were a side of their character they wanted to express in these lives, never aiming to release a DVD out of it but well, they ... read more

"So shall we fall into nihil?"

The Mantle feels like a forest; right after the sunset, with a cold lake and a lukewarm breeze, that touches the tree leaves. Everything else is nonexistent, or there's probably you, sitting on a bench and staring at the tree's reflection on the lake.

The Mantle - if effective - will make you see a grey world and appreciate every small detail about it; reminding you that your existence is unimportant and that you are a little nothing.

Yes, it doesn't ... read more

So, in June, Muse visited my country and I went to their concert. Their encore started with Kill or Be Killed, and Bellamy saying that it hadn't been released yet. It took us all by surprise; suddenly, a metal song. The crowd started a mosh pit, and it was one of the most random things I'd expect in a Muse concert, but weirdly it was... right!

The album's not really gonna be good, unfortunately, but I like the vibe here. What makes this a very entertaining song, in my opinion, is the drumming. ... read more

This is the demo Ne Obliviscaris recorded 5 years before releasing their debut album, Portal Of I. It includes three tracks that are in Portal Of I, but they sound different. For example, the guitarist was Corey King back then, while after they released the demo Benjamin Baret took his place in the band.

The only things I want to mention are:

- Tim Charles has improved a lot after they released the demo, as well as Xenoyr's harsh vocals.
- Here they sound a lot more like black metal, or ... read more

To be honest it feels like a... sequel to Hybrid Theory to me, which is a good thing if you ask me. I've always listened to these two albums back in my high-school days, but I never felt that change of character some people claim there is.

Unpopular opinion: Breaking The Habit and Numb are overrated. There are better songs here.

That's not only an amazing debut album, but it's one of the greatest nu-metal albums and an important highlight for the genre. Like it or not, this is the kind of energy needed in music like this. Shinoda's voice is one of the best rap voices I've stumbled upon, and Chester shouts his heart out for the choruses and bridges.

Fav song: One Step Closer

Sure! There is a few AOTY community discords, but mine is the biggest. We have well over 200 people, all quite kind, and a lot of channels. We hold events, like playlist & movie swaps, game nights, and others every once and a while. Mostly it is a place to get to know those who actively use the website best :). I'm sure you'd fit in well, most members of the server are very accepting - though there is drama every once and a while (of course lol).

Hi! My music taste is better than yours.

...No hard feelings!

My fav band is Ne Obliviscaris for now, but I'm not sure if that helps. You can see Nujabes albums in my top ratings, as well as Aimer or My Chemical Romance.
