What's this? No Lamp of Thoth thread? Apparently UG does not love the lamp, that has to change.

A review on metal archives describes this band perfectly:

"What we have is a invigorating, but sinister, cheerful, but heinous offering that defies all the Doom Metal cliches while staying (in a very absorbing manner) very true to what Doom is all about."

Doom metal fans owe it to themselves to grab Potents, Omens & Dooms.

That was...interesting. Kind of lame.

But ****, at least it's not all that screaming nonsense that people seem to be so overly obsessed with.

Powerslave you are as bad as metal-lover. You feel the need to make a thread for every single band that isn't mentioned at least once a day.

Well, it's the same old threads in this forum that are active. Might as well get some other discussion going.

I'm constantly bored and have no life.

These threads last for a max. of two pages and die. So... you really achieve nothing.

Well he does at least show some people the bands, I've gotten stuff from powerslave before. I'll check this stuff once I'm done with my Vintersorg.

They last hardly 10 posts. Even so, just getting some recognition for a band and subsequently getting someone into them is enough.

Whatever happened to Metal Lover ?

But yeah, cool band, thanks!

Portents, Omens & Doom was one of the finest doom releases of 2008. One of the most promising newcomers in the doom scene i think.

Has anyone heard the Cauldron of Witchery EP. Awesome cover of Cirith Ungol's Frost & Fire on it.

Powerslave, ignore the naysayers and keep posting threads on quality bands even if most are too newbish to listen to anything besides their 10 different bands they're into. I'm think I'll go start a Battleroar thread.

If you searched "The best band of the year" then you would have found Chylde of Fire's thread on these guys hahah...

I'll check them out again, but defying the doom metal cliches? Last time I remember hearing them, those cliches and blatant Sabbath worship was all they were doing.

Not to mention the ridiculous stage names

Man, I love music styles like this...the eerie vocals with the old-school riffage = awesome.

But that "**** yeah, you will obey!" thing is ridiculously cheesy

edit: Oh, also, the band name sounds like someone with a bad lisp saying "The Lamp of Sauce"

I have never been into this style of Doom, which I find oddly annoying, as I feel it may have something to offer...

Will return to this is a few weeks perhaps.

Sorry, but this is pretty much true and the reason why I don't bother making band threads

but Lamp Of Thoth are of course great

Proud to say I have been with this band since their beginings. Fucking quality.

New 10" EP being unleashed shortly, I'd like to add.

Blood On Satan's Claw is one of the best metal songs ever written.

Gladly checking out more of this band's songs. Quality stuff.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

They have some good songs, but then there's juvenile crap like "HEY! YOU! YOU MOTHERFUCKING WHORE!" and I'm sitting there begging for lyrics that aren't crap.

I mean, I just can't take Blood On Satan's Claw seriously. One of the most overrated songs I've ever heard.

I knew someone would moan about this sooner or later. Lighten the hell up. It's called not-taking-everything-100%-seriously-all-the-fucking-time, which is an art sorely missing these days.
Anyway, its not even like it's their best song. That is obviously Pagan Daze...

Hear, hear.

It's refreshing seeing a band being humourous and fun without being completely obnoxious about it.

But not as obnoxious as the dime-a-dozen joke bands out there, who are soooo wacky and are so satiricly extreme.

I actually find it to be very obnoxious.

But meh.

It's very rare you find a metal band with good humor, ESPECIALLY within Doom Metal.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

How's that?

I find doom metal to be far less serious than many other metal genres

You got take all metal with a grain of salt. Sometimes I just have to shake my head at the cheese that some bands present in their music or image. It's more funny than anything though.

Looks like a very nice show so far, I can't imagine seeing how an Esoteric show would go live...

New 10'' is already up for sale, and it's almost sold out! I'm pretty sure it comes in a box set with a new Scarab EP and an Asomvel EP.
#40
lol I"m warming up to these guys...

as for Esoteric, i"ve only seen live youtube videos, which obviously can't compare to actually being there; that said, I'd imagine the experience would be quite significant and enthralling
