wow, Gorath - i just didnt think of you as the Draconian type. One of my favorite bands, and i have to say that Where Lovers Mourn is up there in my fave albums of all time. Great stuff.
What do you think of their newest, 'Rose for the Apocalypse'?

Personally, i think it's good (there's not a bad cd in their history) but i will always like their earlier stuff much better. I really like the plodding, mournful guitar sound, they tend to visit that less and less as the albums progress. Theyve changed here and there, but thankfully not for the worse as bands often do. They have evolved, but stayed consistently good.

Right now listening to Def Leppard's "Pyromania", which is so diametrically different both musically and thematically, it's almost funny. I've been listening to music from my youth a lot lately, trying to see if it still holds up. Pyromania is okay at times, but it doesnt hold up as well as something like Motley Crue's "Shout at the Devil", which is actually a pretty well written and composed album.

Something tells me I'll be dusting off Where Lovers Mourn here pretty soon…..
