18:41 - Hex_Omega Wacken last year: 132 bands, this year: 83 bands. What happened?
18:35 - Bad English Amon Amarth is not crap band and LOTR is better book as Harry poter
18:24 - Marcel Hubregtse crap bands taking names from a crap book. That does make sense, though.
17:14 - Belegûr I say so many, not all. There are a few that are great in my opinion.
17:10 - Belegûr Difference is, Amon Amarth don't even like Tolkiens work :P they said so themselves. They just liked the name. It's a shame that so many crap bands have taken all the cool names from Tolkiens world :P
17:02 - J. N. Amon Amarth took their name from LOTR, as well. Are they low nerds too?
16:43 - Nimlot It's hard to go any lower, but he sure took a stab at it.

Written by !J.O.O.E.! on 23.04.2012 at 18:34 Unf. Definitely a contender for best Sigh song.
Such a fun track. It's like a crazy and drug-filled heavy metal fest with black metal vocals and synth on top. Lovely.
The chorus is so catchy goddamit.
Ugh I own the remastered version and for some unknown reason they thought it would be a good Idea to take the lead guitar out of that song along with the 2 solos! The original is just so much better! Grr
Great album. I don't know, if it can be considered their most experimental one, as all of them starting with Hail Horror Hail are quite experimental, but still I enjoy a lot their mix of space rock, metal and whatnot.
Been meaning to listen to this one forever and kept putting it off. What a spectacularly chill, creative, excellent album. I think I am still more drawn to the speed and highs/lows of their newer stuff, but I definitely see why this is such a classic.
Wow having gone through their full disco now, this is without doubt their magnum opus. I had second thoughts about this after Hangman's Hymn and Scenes From Hell. But God!, this is just flawless, not a single false note here. This album is near perfect. Sigh will never probably top this.
