4 Aug 2009, 16:01 by AndyChrzI don't know too many people who have been here longer than i have, but there's bound to be some. Speak up if you are!
It's been a cool five years, this is definitely one of my favorite websites and since i'm already a numbers/stats kinda guy, it just fed my addiction.
So let's compile some of those numbers and stats and see what we get.
Total plays: 223,077 (i have no idea if that number's right, i've deleted so many bogus (mistagged) tracks from my collection that i'm sure it might be a couple thousand higher)
Total artists: 2,397 (again, this one is probably higher)
311 - 1910 plays
Pig Destroyer - 1866 plays
Nasum - 1813 plays
Throwdown - 1655 plays
Between the Buried and Me - 1572 plays
Bleeding Through - 1493 plays

27 Dec 2008, 17:58 by fatalbreakdown2008 was kind of a nice and calm but at the same time spectacular year in my opinion!
many really intense and epic albums were released! due to this "circumstance" i would like to present you a top 35 chart for my top albums of this past year which has nearly ended now! :)
i know that 35 is quite a big number for top albums but i just couldn't let any of those out..
1. Carpathian - Isolation
2. For the Fallen Dreams - Changes
3. Misery Signals - Controller
4. Confession - Can't Live Can't Breathe
5. Stick to Your Guns - Comes From The Heart
6. I Killed the Prom Queen - Music For The Recently Deceased feat. Crafter
22 Dec 2008, 06:25 by zao_89After the Burial - Rareform
I'm not one of those who think the album is SOOO AMAZING, but its definately a change in the metalcore scene.
Cadence Weapon - Afterparty Babies
Great release by a Canadian rapper. Took a while to grow on me, but its definately the best rap/hip hop release of 08.
Carpathian - Isolation
Amazing album by a previously *core band. Their old stuff is good, but this is their best.
Charles Hamilton - Outside Looking
Keep an eye on this guy. He's a rapper who's obsessed with Sonic the Hedgehog (oh, and apparently, his influences are Eminem, Dr. Dre and Incubus).
Cute Is What We Aim For - Rotation
For the Fallen Dreams - Changes
Brutal, catchy and AMAZING.
H20 - Nothing To Prove
Again, great catchy album.
Ligeia - Bad News
A lot of people didn't like this album, but I thought it was really good. The faux-turntable guitar solo was really unexpected though.
Stormlord - Mare Nostrum
Probably their best album yet.
25 Mar 2008, 06:17 by zao_89One of my favourite genres lately is that melodic, breakdown laden metalcore (Misery Signals, It Prevails). FTFD fits in to that category. Drop A# chugging breakdowns with melodic guitar lines is the best way to describe this band. Some of the parts seem simple, but become more complex when you try to figure out how they're played (e.g. the opening lick from Hopeless).
Track by track breakdown:
1. Brothers In Arms - This is that one track thats a fan favourite. The beggining is just asking for a pile-on scream-along.
2. New Beginnings - Just an average song
3. Hopeless - One of my favourites. "THIS IS ALL ON YOU!". The end breakdown has what most breakdowns lack - a time signature other than 4/4. The 6/8 time signature fives you somewhat of a "swing" feeling. *Chug ch- chug ch- chug ch- cacophonic chord*
4. Last Dying Breath - I love the ending. I'm really suprised they didnt play this song live when I saw them.
