Evil That Warmen Do
Evil That Warmen Do
Offered by mrtopseller
Price: £5.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but could have been so much better., 14 July 2015
This review is from: Evil That Warmen Do (Audio CD)
Warmen is the side project from Children of Bodom keyboardist, Janne Wirman.
This particular release being a best of the four albums released by Finnish label, Spinefarm Records.

No complaints at all with the song selection, with the focus on the songs with vocals, rather than the shredding instrumentals that were scattered throughout the Warman catalogue.

However my biggest complaint is the rare b-sides/bonus tracks (that are near impossible to find) that haven't been included here.
Dead Reflection (Alone single) EWO Suite no.1 from the Beyond Abilities album sessions are long out of print.
As is Treasure Within from another long lost single.
So you would think that this is the perfect opportunity to get these songs out to the fans who missed them the first time?

No not a chance.

Hell has frozen over, Nick Holmes was revealed as Bloodbath's new frontman, I was scratching my head.
Nick's vocals have evolved over the years and to go back to growls, was almost unthinkable, until now.
He does a good job, the music is still the old school death metal, nothing too fancy.

5.0 out of 5 stars But it's more like a 'splatter' of colours, 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are looking at buying this version, get in quick, there are only 250 of these pressed.
The sticker on the front says, blue, white and black marble.
But it's more like a 'splatter' of colours, that other record labels have been issuing.
Also note that the vinyl is NOT 180g heavy weight, it is the 'old school' normal weight.
The gatefold has the lyrics printed inside, that are quite small and ifficult to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow Melancholic Misery, 11 July 2015
This review is from: Monotomy Fields (Audio CD)
Funeral Doom, if you don't know what the genre is or sounds like, then a song or 2 from SoD, you'll be fully educated.

Monontony Fields is SoD first album in 10 years.
It pretty much takes up where the band left off with their previous album.
Only one pace here, slow, slower and slowest.
This genre is not for everyone and to be honest not what I can listen to with any great regularity.
But when the mood takes me, there is no better feeling of, bleakness, misery and dispair, than listening to album's like this.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are very few bands that have been around as long as Blind Guardian have, and can still deliver a strong album.
This album is no exception, I bought the 2LP pic disc from amazon, the quality of the vinyl, the packaging it pretty good quality and the lyrics are included on the actual LP slips.

The music is epic, working with orchestra's and choir's mean that the BG trademark sound is still there all be it with, on many songs, many layers to digest and dissect.

Hansi is one of the few singers in metal that seems to get better with age, this time around his voice is again very versatile.

This review is from: Imaginaerum (Score) (Audio CD)
If you liked the movie and the original album, then this one is for you.
A little different from the regular album, though some of the melodies from the metal versions are repeated here.
While perhaps not quite as good as the mega Imaginaerum Orchestral album, it's not far behind it.

5.0 out of 5 stars So it's all instrumental with no annoying vocals to ruin these brilliant songs, 11 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The version offered here is for the ORCHESTRAL version, as in classical music with no traditional meta/rock instruments involved at all.
So it's all instrumental with no annoying vocals to ruin these brilliant songs.
I have been a massive Nightwish since the very early days, yet never liked this album until I heard it without the vocals.
Yet I did like the previous album with Anette on vocals.

What you get here is a full flown classical orchestral symphony bombastic and epic in every way imaginable.
It's the same track as the regular album, except there is no Ghost River.

An exceptional album now Nuclear Blast how about a 5.1 version of this?

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 2 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just bought a new guitar, so I need a new strap,costly strap locks to keep it secure?
No this product is so good, so easy to use, it not only save you a small fortune, the hassle of changing your guitar pins.
So good I want to get another, but not from amazon, postage was very expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Borknagar by stealth, 2 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Erathems (Audio CD)
When you have 2 member from the Noway prog/black/death metal band Borknagar, there are bound to be some similarities.
This is a 2 man project with programmed drums, with this being their 3rd album together.

Simply if you like Borknagar, the music is not too far away from them at all, I mean if you played this to me blind and told me it was Borknagar, I would not give you any arguments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value, 26 April 2013
Unlike nearly every other band that releases the DVD/2CD package of the same concert.
Sabaton gives you three different shows, with for the most 3 totally different set lists.
A killer live band with lots of energy from the band that gets given back to them from the audience.
The video is from 2008, featuring a lot of songs from The Art of War album.
The audio shows are like a best of Sabaton, with many songs sounding better in a live situation.
This was the first Sabaton release that I bought and it got me hooked and hungry for more.
