    Punchestown 2002? That was my first ever gig!

    I learned the value of having really shit bands like Lostprophets play at festivals; it afforded me the chance to buy overpriced chips without missing anything.

    Haha, I should've said Tool-fest 2002!

    Sucked like a Dyson, Lostprophets did ;)

    RE: New AiC, love it, dirty, heavy, catchy.

    RE: Black Gives Way to Blue, IMHO better than the previous record, I like it a lot, couple of filler tracks but a lot of good.

    RE: Katatonia Gig, fucking awesome, they were immense as all fuck. Blinding set. Alcest were good but the sound tech fucked em over with a terrible mix, until the last track when they sorted it out (mostly).

    Been trying to get into these lads on and off for a few years now, gave the album a go this evening and something clicked, really enjoying it!

    333 is a top album, as is the first. The Ritualist....not great.

    Metal IS embarrassing.

    It constantly strives to be more like the super-awesome number 7,000 (which is a number that all the cool kids aspire to be, clearly), and fails miserably.

    @OllyJ

    Pretty much what I've been told before! I'll start sinking my teeth into the debut properly, might try and pick up 333 in the new year.

    Come on, it's shit like hip-hop is if your cover it with a blanket. There's some fantastic stuff if you look for it, it's especially good if you like a good drummer.

    Is that a joke? Good grief that's fucking terrible. It has to be a joke.

    I recently purchased a few copies of Kreator's Phantom Antichrist, (the Japanese edition - which contains the bonus track, Iron Destiny). If anyone's interested, just contact me, and I'll be happy to send you a copy for free.

    A FEW copies? I mean, Kreator are ace and all, but why buy more than one?

    Jaysus, Kreator are still doing the rounds?

    Last one I heard was 'Enemy of God'. Wasn't bad.
  • Deleted user 27 December 2012 08:43:04
    When I first found out about 'Phantom Antichrist', I noticed that quite a few reviewers mentioned that the Japanese edition had an extra track - but since they'd already purchased the other edition, they wouldn't mind having the Japanese edition, but weren't exactly eager to purchase the album again.

    After hearing the album, I ended up strongly feeling that the bonus track provides a much better finish than the song prior to it, ('Until Our Paths Cross Again' - which, incidentally, is what the Argosy Captain says in Monster Hunter Tri).

    (As for what motivated me to get the extra copies and distribute them... I was feeling benevolent after receiving a free vegan recipe book at an exhibition on the environment... even though I'm not a vegan.)

    Of the two studio albums that Kreator have produced since 'Enemy of God' - i.e. 'Hordes of Chaos' and 'Phantom Antichrist', I'd say that 'Phantom Antichrist' is certainly the better one (lyrically and musically), but 'Hordes' is still worth listening to - not least for the tracks 'Warcurse' and 'Demon Prince'.

    Still waiting for someone to respond to my offer.

    I'll gladly take one, if you're serious - one of the few albums I was interested in this year that I haven't got around to buying yet!

    Very much so - they were brilliant at Bloodstock last year, actually!

    I am indeed serious: all I need is a shipping address, and I'll despatch a copy.

    If there's one going I won't say no; I love a bit of Kreator and what I've heard of this new one sounds pretty good. Should I just PM you?

    All of the My Dying Bride albums seem to be £6.00 in the HMV sale.

    And all of Anathema's albums before Hindsight/We're Here... seem to be six quid too.

    Just send me a private message with a shipping address, and I'll do the rest, (with the help of the post office).

    I've already sent one, and I have two more copies to spare.

    The second one is shipped; only one free copy of Phantom Antichrist (Japanese Edition - i.e. the one with the bonus track) remains.

    Since I've got some credit to spare with CDJapan, I have half a mind of purchasing one or two more copies of it - if more people are interested.
