15:49 - E.Mols86 Compare it to whatever you like, I still find it totally silly. My brother went to the Anime Con a few years ago normally dressed. The year after they went in costume so they fit in and didn't feel like outcasts.
15:48 - MechanisT There seems to be a recursive pattern in all this.
15:46 - !J.O.O.E.! But people make lists to show off ;)
15:44 - E.Mols86 That's a strange comparison. Cosplay isn't so much about discussing your favourite anime movie/show, but rather about dressing up like your favourite character and showing off your costume. So it's totally different.
15:38 - Syk EMo - same could be said for your movie/TV/black/doom discussions. just a way to meet like-mindeds, innit? surround self with safe satisfaction, maybe expan 2 somethin' new
Devin Townsend - Epicloud Mr. Townsend brought us the compilation album of the "Devin Townsend Project". And like these four albums, it's awesome!
Opera Diabolicus - 1614 One of the jewels I found while reading the Dutch magazine "Aardschok". Black/progessive metal meets opera. The story of Elisabeth Bathory is told in a way people have never heard/seen it! (the music video is awesome!)
Kamelot - Silverthorn With the new vocalist Tommy Karevik the band shows that they can keep making awesome albums even without Roy Khan.
Halestorm - The strange case of... Didn't listen it at it's release, but when I came by the single "Love Bites" I realized I almost missed one of the coolest hardrock albums of the year!
Devin Townsend - By A Thread - Live In London 2011 Mr. Townsend playing all four of the masterpieces he released under "The Devin Townsend Project". The small setting gives you the feeling you are at the concert every time and screaming your lungs out!
Anneke van Giersbergen - Everything is changing Anneke should be more famous over here in the Netherlands. She has one of the most beautiful voices in the rock/metal scene. And for her age she doesn't look that bad either! The album has both heavy as more softer songs and really shows Anneke can sing erverything.
Orden Ogan - To the end This is one great powermetal release. The songs are catchy and the second song has an awesome guitar solo battle! Great release from an overlooked powermetal band.
As I Lay Dying - Awakened AILD was the first metalcoreband I really enjoyed listening to. The new album is good, but doesn't have the same "Dark" feeling as "Shadows are Security" & "An Ocean between us". Maybe that's because of the great quality of the sound, it's just to "clean" to my taste.
Sybreed - God is an automaton Haven't listend the whole album, but the first songs are great in my opinion. And it made me more interested in Industrial metal.
In this moment - Blood I have heard some songs from their first releases and compared to Blood it's very differend. I may be in the minority, but I can really enjoy most songs of the album.
