28 Aug 2009, 12:16 by GraceTemptationFirst of all, I have to say I don't consider myself a "metalist" (or whatever). I don't listen to strictly of-that-kind-of-genre bands and my favourite colour is NOT black ( xD ), to be precise, it's white. I don't wear only black clothes to pretend something or to tell everybody WHO I AM ACTING LIKE. I like (almost) all colours and funny T-shirts with crazy pictures. xD I DON'T dye my hair black to be black from head to heels. I actually DO dye my hair black, but only because I like it and I begane with it before listening to any "metal" (* see the note below) anyway... I don't say people who are wearing only black are bad / strange / odd / idiots. I only say I don't do it because myself, I find it odd and I would die withou colours (and I really mean it. If you saw my school books or things I study, you would understand... I need colours really everywhere!)
The first "metal" song I've ever heard (let's say it like this... …

13 Oct 2008, 20:52 by agquarxI wish record companies and RIAA (which is *EVIL*) stopped standing in front of the avalanche of the digital revolution and simply embraced the storm. I will tell you on my example how much they are wrong. Since I bought an iPod (160GB now), subscribed to last.fm and got a fat Internet pipe to be able to effectively use BitTorrent (I also use Mininova mostly) my CD buying increased 500% - I bought at least 150 new CD's of artists I wouldn't be able to encounter if not for the Internet and her services. I have several Smart Playlists to sort out first the songs I never heard before (uncategorized, no stars) - I have this playlist in iTunes. Every time last.fm or Pandora recommends some new artist to me I use Mininova to download discography of that artist and at the latest synchronization I put those new files on my iPod. There I have a "The Best" playlist, "Loved" playlist (five stars), "Liked" playlist (four stars)…

1 Oct 2007, 19:17 by thewisedragonTimes I feel like myself... Well, those times, they're fading away. Slowly, it feels like I'm losing control... I fear for what may come.
It's the fear of the dark, it's growing inside of me...

I will hold on, I will fight. This is not the end, these moments I'll fight away... I have to... I want to...

27 Nov 2006, 02:06 by DarkOblivionIt really isn't metal... - 70%
Written originally for Encyclopedia Metallum on August 2nd, 2005
Above all, we aren’t facing a metal album, but instead a pop/rock one, with lots of elements of goth atmospheric music and classical music. The songs sustain themselves on the amazing soaring vocals by Sharon den Adel, which we already knew from previous releases, and in the beautiful, yet repetitive, melodies.
We can view this album as another step on the downward spiral the dutch band has been doing with it’s sound: “doomier” at first (Enter, The Dance), now very commercial indeed. Behind this may be the change of record company, sustained on the grounds they already stood with the successful Mother Earth and the adequateness of this kind of sound in the present.
Though all the criticism I already made, I have to honestly say I actually enjoyed listening to this album, because above all I keep an open mind and because it really is hard to define what is “Gothic” Metal, when we have something like Lacuna Coil…
