  1. Whoa, a 2 point difference on Mantar. I can’t even remember the last time that happened. How many drinks is that in the drinking game?

    I bought the new Mantar album, but I actually haven’t listened to it yet because I’ve been listening to The Zenith Passage and Arktis by Ihsahn. I’m liking Arktis a lot. I could have sworn that you guys reviewed Eremita from Ihsahn 3 years ago, but Brian noted to me that you never reviewed it. Eremita wasn’t bad, but wasn’t great. Arktis is better than Eremita.

    I actually was a Filter fan back in the late 90s, but haven’t listened to them in a long time.

    I don’t have any more time to comment because I have to watch the new season of Game of Thrones starting tonight.
