My tastes lean toward the epic -- old school power metal, epic heavy metal, epic doom, and power/thrash. I like a fair number of black metal bands, but they also tend to be epic sounding (e.g., early Abigor, later Immortal, Dissection, Belenos), and bear little resemblance to 80s black metal. At an...

Neither of them :) MP3s totally put me off - I stopped downloading music in 2007 and I don`t think I will ever do that. Even before that I would get only samples, or 1-2 songs off an album jus to check whether it`s worth the purchase. When Youtube and Myspace things had appeared I felt I would need ...

Are you from Česko? No, but I live fairly close. As for NWN: I do have a few re-releases from them (Voor, Sarcasm, Death Yell, Damnation). All of them include biographies made by the bands themselves, wihich means band members did agree for those reissues and were co-operative at that. There might ...

IRAS is not so urgent not so special in my opinion ordinary HM.if you like so much this you should love another 50 Czech bands so. There is one song by IRAS - Kladivo na čarodějnice - that sounds incredibly great to me. I would by a would-be rerelease for this track alone. Not that I do not appreci...

Now, this auction`s insanely amusing:

The seller is offering a CD (presumably fairly hard to find if that`s original) and as the decription puts up a review that is out and out negative.

Re: Did QUORTHON was a "liar" ?
