Soooo... My family and I sat down for Christmas dinner about an hour and a half ago, my mum was happily listening to Josh Groban (fair enough, it's Christmas).

Until my dad turns around and asked me to put something good on... 'How about that Opeth band... they released a chilled album didn't they?'

I didn't need to be told twice... I sprinted to my room with a mouth full of turkey and roast potato, grabbed Opeth's 'Damnation' and popped it on.

Turns out everyone enjoyed it.

Goodtimes!

Anyone else listen to anything remotely good whilst eating Christmas dinner?

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Well, we don't celebrate Christmas, but I played Definitely Maybe at dinner tonight, does that count? It was just a normal dinner.

If all you had to go on was the forum you'd think a Decimator could cure noise caused by dodgey stage lighting and restock the ocean's population of sperm whales

I never manage to get away with metal at dinner.

Maybe some Death Cab, that's as brutal as Christmas gets.

YOU RAISED ME UUUUUUP!

I do like Josh Groban, but Opeth's Damnation album is equally good.
NOPE.
#35
I played Damnation for my mum, and now she loves it and plays it at dinner parties and stuff she's not such a fan of the heavier stuff though..
#38
My dad will probably put on Jethro Tull Christmas, Brian Setzer Orchestra's "Boogie Woogie Christmas", and Charlie Brown christmas.

I can live with that.

But I can't convince him to put on We Wish You A Metal Christmas or A Very Twisted Christmas
#39
my mom hates metal but she had me put damnation on her ipod.
In heaven, all interesting people are absent.

That's pretty cool TS, I'm going to try and get some Jeff Buckley on while we eat. I'm pretty sure they won't mind it.



I personally would have gone for Buckers... But this year it's all so cliche with the whole Hallelujah business.

Oh and Tom...

Opeth > Holocaust

and in turn

Holocaust > Dragonforce
