1. I’ve listened to Deathless by Revocation a couple of times now and I’m not yet sure what to make of it. It’s certainly a good solid album, but I don’t know if it is going to turn into a fantastic album after a few more listens or if I think it is going to become mediocre. I’m waiting for a song or even a moment on Deathless to shine through and stand out. On their last album (the self-titled), I love the song Archfiend. That instrumental part at the end of Archfiend is awesome. Deathless has yet to reveal a moment like that for me. I’m still going to be listening to Deathless, so it will be interesting to see how it sinks in.

    You mentioned the Amon Amarth / Sabaton show. I went to that last night. There’s not much to say about it. These two bands are at the top of their game and never disappoint, which made for a great show. But if you’ve seen those bands recently (which I know Brian has), then you didn’t really miss anything different because this was more of the same except for the addition of the Viking ship on stage.

    Good job dropping some classical music knowledge on us, Nick. An example of what you are referring to is Exmortus playing Beethoven’s Moonlight sonata. Exmortus doesn’t play the entire Moonlight sonata. They just play the third movement, which is the fastest of the three movements in the sonata.

    1. Ahh, thank you for tying in classical with a metal equivalent. I didn’t make that connection at the time when we were discussing it, but that is the perfect example of my point!

      Also: are we finally going to overlap at a concert this week?! Thursday?
