They are phenomenal live. I've seen them twice, once with and once without vocals, both times they were really powerful.

As for traditional Irish music, I have artists doing Irish songs, but no actual Irish artists doing Irish music.

Unless you fancy a bit of Clannad?

Live without vocals, wtf? I just wish they would come to the U.S. again.

I wouldn't mind that Anni (your new name), I just want to know what some of the traditional pieces because I'm interested in Irish music.

I don't know Clannad, but after a quick search, I wouldn't mind if you told me where to start.

More later, after I come back form work!

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

Yeah bloodstock a couple of years back, Alan lost his voice 3 tracks into the set.

If you can find it (or would like me to send it ) I have a best of called 'In a Lifetime'.

I have an album called 'Music Of Ireland: Airs, Jigs, Reels, Hornpipes And Marches' which is arranged for guitar. which I could also send your way.

Other than that I'll have to have a browse when I get back from uni, but I'll make a list for you. For now there's one track in particular hat I'm quite fond of, The Lakes of Shilin (or Coolfin, or Champlain depending on your version) This version is Nic Jones who isn't Irish, but it's the second best version I know. (Behind Martin Simpson who's version isn't on youtube)

I haven't forgotten this list I've promised, I've just got 3 more days before my dissertation is due, so it's all systems go at the moment. So it might be monday/tuesday before I have a propper sit down and get round to it.

There's not much new happening here. It's slightly heavier than usual Primordial, I guess, but the formula is basically the same [but it always has been].

But, goddamn. That chorus is super effective. It sounds like they might have hit the level they did on To the Nameless Dead again. If that's the case this album will be amazing.

It's like Fenriz and J. Read

"I'm so happy to love metal and stuff"

^I agree with my BA friend here. Primordial does what they do well, and I don't expect much in terms of new, groundbreaking music from them. If they retain their core sound on this album, I expect it to be a winner just like their last album. Although, I hope it is more along the lines of To The Nameless Dead because what a goddamned album that was.
