It's the ending of "Home of once brave"J.K. wrote:There is also some METALLICA influence in his music. I don't remember the song but on Hammerheart there is an enormous "for whom the bell tolls" feeling on one song haha.
Who would "everybody" be? I'm under the impression that he wasn't a huge socialite and that he mostly hung out with the same bunch of people all the time. His dad mostly, haha. And why would it really be that hard to believe that you can be close minded about music? I have friends whom I'd consider huge metal fans, but don't listen to more than 10 different bands.Cochino wrote:So everybody around him was listening to those bands but he wasn't? I find it hard to believe, but I guess we'll never know.
They might not be that fucking huge, but there are there and they are quite obvious. For instance lines like these can't be coincidentialVäänänen wrote: I'm a big, big fan of both Manowar and Bathory (especially the "viking era"), but I honestly don't think that the similarities are that fucking huge. Not huge enough that the songs couldn't have been invented twice, not affected by each other.
"Knew" - which I'm also sure he did - is not really the same as "was influenced by" or "actively listened to" in my book.Cochino wrote:Well, by everybody I mean pretty much anyone who listened to Metal back then, no matter where you lived, at least knew those bands. And Sweden isn't Tibet or Haiti where that music probably took a lot longer to arrive so I seriously doubt he didn't know those bands, but by saying I doubt it I'm not saying I'm sure he did, I just think the posibilities of him lying about it are higher than those of him not knowing those bands. You must also remember that he isn't known for giving straight honest answers in interviews all the time.
