16:37 - Apothecary I guess it's tough to say with BaN. I personally consider MoRT their peak period, and I haven't been too impressed with their post-777 material, but that could easily change, because Vindsval is full of surprises
16:04 - mz btw, Che, check this band if you are falling in love with Virus [link]
16:02 - mz cant say that about BaN, especially given the fact that the guy has started a band which supposedly sets MoRT as its starting point.
15:58 - Apothecary But I think we're also going to be seeing the rise of a second wave of French BM soon (it's kind of already happening), because imo the giants of BAN and DSO are already past their prime
Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape It's hard to believe that it's been 10 years since this wickedly twisted work, and still people don't seem to have caught up to it. Forget Unexpect's aquariae, Sigh's magnum opus mixes heavy/black metal with classical music/weed-clouded 70s rock/ambient/just anything.
Gamma Ray - No World Order Hail Discordia! Still on their peak of inspiritation, the german 'Helloween for connoisseurs' summon the Illuminati as adversaries, and mighty 80s Heavy Metal as a base for this no-filler uber record. If you're gonna explain to someone what metal is, show 'em this one.
