Ever heard of Amaran?

I like to think of myself as someone who has an awesome taste for music. From the bands many in this community seem to like, I do believe with all my heart the majority of you will also like Amaran if you don't like them already. I stumbled across them somehow. I liked them so much I went to Amazon.com and waited 2 months until they shipped the damn CD's.

They play technical, melodious metal with female vocals according to the website. Sort of like Lullacry (they're awesome), but not exactly like them. Their sound is different, a little more rougher? Darker? Bah! I'm not good at describing music too much. Listen, the samples of the music aren't that big. Just click on the link and download ALL of them. It won't take very long being small files and I'm sure you'll like them. Post here letting me know what you think. Enjoy!

I'm scared...

Opeth is going to sign with Roadrunner.

Collapse )

Is anyone else scared shitless about this? Seriously, I don't want to be all "OMGZ THEY'RE SELLING OUT!111!", I won't really care who they're signed with as long as they continue to make good music. The thing is, Roadrunner seems to do things to bands...look what happened to Nightwish. Their new album wasn't really BAD by any means, the soul just seemed to be gone. I have faith in Akerfeldt though, he loves Opeth too much to let it spiral into mediocrity. Or at least I hope he does..

Or it's quite possible that I'm just overreacting. =P Who knows what'll happen...I just hope they stay metal.
