"If quality Viking Metal with lots of melody helps you put your back into the rowing of the longboat (...)"

Longboats powered by metal are the future.  :headbang:

"He sounds like John Rhys-Davies at a poetry slam – that shit is just too much."

I think Sargon is the most quotable of any reviewer here.  Here is another gem!!

"This is in no way a metal album, and yet it keeps getting strong reviews from people who wouldn't know a metal album from a semen-filled goat anus."

The main reviewers all craft good turns of phrase into their reviews. It's clear they enjoy writing.

Writing is Sargon's craft and he clearly takes great pride in what he does. His reviews were the reason I started hanging around here.

I feel like mine are much more "utilitarian" and the reason I do them, besides sharing my love (or hate, depending on the album) of Metal with like-minded fans, is to try and get better at writing what is my native language. I appreciate Michel giving me the chance to do this. If something I write brings a smirk to someone's face once in a while, all the better.  :naughty:

Been coming here since at least 15 years, joined the forum around 5 years ago. It's the first site I check in the morning. Every reviewer knows their stuffs. I have discovered many bands because of them. Hope you'll still be here 20 years from now

"The song's main riff is heavier than wet trousers and the gloomy, doomy beginning is a storm warning."
