YES! Tab it.. I love that song, especially the part where Alan sings 'Im a heathen, searching for his soul' and the double bass kicks in again, awesome.


That's my favorite part, as well. Incredibly epic.

I have some other tabbing priorities, but I will eventually attempt it.

#82
^ Excellent.

I just realised how overly-long 'Bitter Harvest' is. I think it really takes the momentum out of Journey's End. And Solitary Mourner is just downright chilling.
Quote by Ultraussie
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.

^Ah, it's a great piece though.

But I wouldn't call it a song, and I only listen to it now and then.

Their albums in general have a lot more meaning if you are Irish and know our history.

I don't know Irish history, but still get a pretty strong feeling from To the Nameless Dead. (It's the only one I have)

Bumping, because Spirit the Earth Aflame is currently both mentally and physically affecting me with it's raw, dark energy.

I feel disembodied.

Maybe cause it's 4:30am and I can't sleep.

Well, now the neighbours can't either.

Excellent.

Ah, Primordial. They never get old. I actually put TTND down for Best New Album on the Metal Forum awards, and yeah, that was above Watershed, if that tells you anything.

This reminds me that I said earlier I was going to attempt tabbing Gallows Hymn. I may just try to do that tomorrow. We'll see how it goes.
#88
YES. Do it.

I'm really enjoying TTND, it's quickly becoming one of my most listened to albums. I really need to get more stuff from this great band.

Like I rec'd you earlier, The Gathering Wilderness should be the one you try next. Amazing album, The Coffin Ships has brought me tears, I'm not ashamed to admit it. Easily one of the most emotional songs I've ever heard.
#90
Awesome. I'll definitely keep my eyes open for it, but I have a large list of albums that I need to buy. So maybe after Nordland I and Imaginations from the Other Side, I'll look for it.

I heard one song from it, and it was great of course.

Indeed, so long as you acquire it eventually. Speaking of which, I still have yet to get A Journey's End or Storm Before Calm. They're on my list, now.

Those and Primordial?

Your music taste is coming along nicely.

To be honest, I completely forgot to To the Nameless Dead was a new album. Even though it's technically out since last year, it feels like longer.

BMTC: You forgot the backwards 'Я'!

Quote by Broadsword
To Phill:Same. It's already a classic metal album, to me.

Totally agree, it's easily one of the best albums I've ever heard.

I'm thinking of making a top 100 list for absolutely no reason actually. It's definitely well in it.

I'd look forward to seeing your list, should you do it. Truth be told, I have no idea what your number one would be.
#97
If I ever do it, I might make an epic thread on it.

My number one would be very hard to pick, but I have an idea. The other 99 would be the problem, in particular the cut-off point of the 90-100 spots.

You're well-versed enough in metal to definitely have a thread-worthy list. I don't know if I could ever make a top hundred without feeling some sort of guilt towards the latter-ranked ones. But Primordial would definitely be in there, very high.

You could probably guess my number 1 album.
#99
It better be The Mantle.

I'm not sure how well-versed in metal I am compared to others here.

I know a fair bit, though.

Nope. I only have this avatar because I think the elk/caribou/pronged mammal is cute.

EDIT: I'd say MHDrunk is damn well versed, but then again, I've never seen him mention anything to do with melodic death or folk. And he's banned. Not sure, either. He was actually becoming a likable dude.
#102
Except for thrash and death, I didn't think he knew that much.

I've mostly got folk, power and prog down.

He was into a lot of BM, but he never really mentioned them that often.

As for genres, I don't really have any one covered enough to become truly knowledgeable. I'm way too spread out across every genre for that. Although, my most listened to genres are probably either BM or folk. Hence my Primordial love.
#104
I have a lot of BM, doom, death, avant garde etc aswell.

Death and thrash metal are actually the only genres where I've never delved deeper than the surface. Which is odd, considering they're probably the two most popular sub-genres here. What I'm really digging right now is the melodic death/doom genre. IE Old Katatonia, October Tide, Old Agalloch, Saturnus, etc.

Gah, I didn't mean for this to go off topic. I have a fell touch, apparently.

How is A Journey's End?
#106
I AM STAYING OFF-TOPIC!

For a second.

You want melodic doom? You like Agalloch? You're in the Primordial thread?

Ah, thanks for reminding me of those guys. I meant to look into them more. I might just do that soon.
#108
All this talk of knowing lots about metal.. irrelevant! As long as we are all in the Primordial boat, its all good .

Was BLARIN Journey's End today, I was trying to convert the neighbours, but to no avail. Oh well, I had fun.

I'm listening to The Coffin Ships right now as I've heard so much about it.

I like it, of course.

The intro sounds similar to an Opeth song, but I can't place which one. It may be Eternal Soul Torture or Into the Frost of Winter...

Holy shit. This song is incredible. I think the singer is my favorite part of this band, which is unusual for me.

Alan is something else entirely, that's for sure. The amount of emotion he's able to portray is unbelievable.

Did you buy The Gathering Wilderness, or are you just listening to the song?
#111
I just listened to the song on Youtube.

What Opeth song is the intro similar too... Do you know?

I'm not near any Opeth at the moment, so I can't really make any comparisons. But I never thought the intro sounded like any Opeth song. It might sound like Eternal Soul Torture, I think that's the one with the clean intro...
#113
Hm, I just checked it's not that one, which was my first bet.

I was thinking that too... I think I'll ask the Opeth thread.

Maybe convert some people to Primordial while I'm at it.

That would be excellent. They don't get enough love around here as it is.

And I see you've solved it.
#117
Indeed.

I was a little disappointed at the lack of "Holy shit this is amazing" esque responses, though.

I'm pretty sure it's just you, Phill, and Stranglehold holding up this thread with me occassionally popping in and saying how I'd like more albums apart from To the Nameless Dead.

Pretty much.

But I doubt many of the Opethians listened beyond the intro, though. A pity for them.
#119
Great, great band. I havent listened to the whole discography yet, but I'm liking it thusfar.

Indeed. TTTND is epic, and The Gathering Wilderness is as well, although in a much darker sense.
