22:53 - Erik M. Was that friend Marcel? I only met Marcel twice but the first time at Dordrecht Doom Day III he was shouting "The Netherlands!!!" at a band who referred to this country as "Holland". Hahaha.
22:49 - Erik M. Zaphod, my bad then. I didn't know that. I always find it funny we (the Dutch) make fun of you guys being dumb and all, while you beat us at "our" language most of the time on TV. :P
22:48 - Zaphod I had a Dutch friend once who kept getting annoyed at me doing exactly that :P
22:46 - Erik M. Holland = North Holland and South Holland btw. Two provinces out of 12. I'm definitely against referring to The Netherlands as "Holland", even though many non-Dutch and Dutch people do so.
22:43 - Redn1ght Oh also. Finnish has done one thing that many languages have not: Inspired Tolkien with his Elvish language.
22:42 - Zaphod Can't comment on Belgian German, but French in Wallonia is quite different than French in France.
22:42 - Erik M. Nathan, I'm not saying you shouldn't distinguish the languages. All I'm explaining is that when I referred to Belgian I meant Flemish. I could've said "Dutch speaking Belgians", which is the same. :P

This past December, Finnish melodic death metal band Insomnium spent the holiday season in the studio recording their 6th full-length album. In order to achieve the best production in the band's history, Insomnium decided to record drums at SF Sound (with Kimmo Perkkiö), located in the group's former hometown (Joensuu), while recording the remaining instruments at studio Korkeakoski (Kotka) with Teemu Aalto. André Alvinzi (Fascination Street Studios) will now mix the album so that it will see a spring 2014 release.
