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.

Katatonia loves touring in North America or so it seems because after recent tours with Opeth, they will team up for the co-headlining Uncrowned & Vertikal North American tour with Cult Of Luna plus special guests Intronaut and Tesseract.
