Just reading back over past rounds and noticed this with regards Winterfylleth

Winterfylleth is actually the Anglo Saxon equivalent to the month of October, so more Autumnal than winter :p

My internet connection was not turned back on until last night, and I am still at university right now. If I do vote, it will be later this evening, but if it is not done before tomorrow morning (or whenever next you check), just close it VG.

Looking forward to moving to Tier 2!

I'm so very excited for this match, Not even sure who I will choose. Will need to give all the albums are real good listen. My bias is at Graveland, but that D666 album just REEKS of Roman arrogance and pride. And Neal's choice ought to be just as prideful as any of them. If D666 wins then that means that the person this rounds winner was supposed to face would just win their next round, which would be RG, so RG is'nt allowed to vote on this one.



For anyone who missed some of the action so far.

I'm wondering if it's as much playing to the crowd as it is anything else.
I find a lot of people allow their imagination to take them further if they like an album, and FTVOB is a very well respected album around these parts.

However D666 and Gravelend struck me as more a sort of fury and hatred than it did a pride, but it'll be interesting to see what everyone gets from each respective release.

I had a tough time choosing this round and narrowed it down to 7
Forefather - Ours is the Kingdom
Forteresse - MÚtal Noir QuÚbÚcois
Graveland - Immortal Pride
Kawir - Ophiolatreia
Primordial - To The Nameless Dead
Велимор - Наш Мир
Темнозорь - Горизонты...

Velimor I felt was more an aesthetic than any actual pride, Primordial was more passion that pride, and not about any real unified subject, Graveland I got more fury than pride as mentioned above, I know Forteresse don't get a lot of love around here and most would cry musical wallpaper and claim they got nothing from it, which left me with Forefather, Kawir and Temnozor. I kind of felt whilst Kawir have pride in their lyrics and stuff, it didn't come across well in the music, which left it a toss up between Temnozor and Forefather. But I feel the theme's of pride and the war like ideal that comes with being under a banner are better represented lyrically and in the heroic feel of Forefather. Even if I do perhaps feel that Temnozor have the better album.

Lord Wing is more prideful than Graveland. I would have personally gone with Der Sturmer-Transcendental Racial Idealism , I find the melodies on that album are more glorious and prideful than anything. I will have to listen to Forefather. It all really depends on the conception of what pride is entailing. D666 is a way more individualistic kind of pride for sure, Graveland is a kind of call to arms for European people, and I have yet yo hear Forefather.

I considered TDR, but I felt that it didn't give a concise thing to be proud of and again I felt prejudice more than pride. Like more furious than proud. To me celebrates what which we have, rather than be angry against that which we deem unacceptable.

I feel Forefather is like a glorious celebration of our (or certainly my) Ănglisc heritage, and it's ultimate demise. I just hope there isn't an Ănglisc/Vinlandic divide again with it being a very English album as The Mercian Sphere was.

I had a very similar thought actually, Neil.

If you were thinking Kawir, how did you slip over Necromantia?

I would of had trouble choosing between Ancient Pride, Hammerheart, Crossing the Fiery Path, and probably VV.

The Kawir album is basically a tribute to the Greek Gods, and very sort of pagan pride, and cultural pride, so it seemed quite fitting. However I only have one Necromantia album, and I don't know it all that well, so that's why

Hammerheart would be the obvious choice.

I think I'd have gone with Dawnbringer - Into the Lair of the Sun God, and shot for the "pride as folly" take.

If you don't hear the pride in Unchain The Wolves, then you should probably get yer ears checked.

Ultimately a lot of metal lays aesthetic claims to Pride but only so many outfits can actual create a sound of pride.

Forefather is actually a little unfamiliar territory. I have listened to them previously but never acquired an album. I have heard good things and one of the Divines is a big fan of the album.

Graveland is absolute legend.

This battle should be good, vote or die on your knees.

Lyrically that album is probably the least prejudiced thing they've done

Quote:
The Right of Blood - The Absolute Truth. The Law of heredity for those who stayed Pure. Never give away what was delivered to you. Your Bright Ancestors to their Race Stayed True


Regardless stoked to hear this forefather band, hoping it will be on youtube.

Thanks, man.

I'm working tomorrow and busy most of the week but should be right to vote on Wednesday. I'll provide a doctors note if anything comes up between now and then.
