Please do me a favor, check out my new YouTube channel.  If you like Minecraft, music and (eventually) weird comedy bits, please check it out.  I am trying to get a subscriber base going to make me more focused and motivated, and even if a small amount of you subscribed that would be awesome.  Here is my channel, thanks so much!  On to the music:

I first heard Turisas on a Metal Hammer sampler album from 2007.  This song is a sort of Russian / Folk Melodic Metal, I really liked it and it led me to find Folk and Viking Metal that I hadn't really checked out at the time.  I think one of the bands that nudged me into the "genre".  I did listen to some "Pirate Metal", but thats for next time!

Love me some galloping guitars.

Turisas - Rasputin

Turisas - Battle Metal

Moved to Arizona / Benighted

Just moved to Arizona.  I will be able to start posting again! I am again, sorry for the time between posts but my life has been VERY full.  I moved 1000 miles away.  This is crazy.  I miss people already, but luckily my best friend moved here for the same reason (a job offer) and my girlfriend will be here after the holiday season. Hope to post more soon, for now have some BENIGHTED:

Benighted - Swallow

Have fun!  Hope you like it and hope you are still going to follow my stuff even though my lack of consistency may have proven otherwise, but let me make that up to you.

Crow Black Sky (yes, I am back!)

Hello followers! I have been working A LOT lately, working on other projects and being very tired.  I finally have time again since work is slowing down (I work for tourists and the season is winding down). Thanks for being patient with me! I hope I can post at least once a week now.  This is now easier since Blogger has finally decided to move forward with their design, so much easier!

Crow Black Sky is a Melodic Black Metal or Blackened Death Metal band from Cape TownSouth Africa, and has been active since 2009.  Check it out:

The Kovenant

The Kovenant is a Norwegian band formed in 1992 which has evolved from Symphonic Black Metal to Industrial/Electronic metal on more recent albums, shaping the style that they coined after the release of Nexus Polaris: "Progressive Space Metal". They remind me of a the band Orgy a little bit of Rammstein and mix in some Powerman 5000 (Tonight The Stars Revolt & Anyone for Doomsday? era). Overwhelmed with nostalgia right now.

My other music blog also has Industial music, generally less on the Metal side, if you are interested.

Between the Buried and Me

Between the Buried and Me is an American heavy metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina. They recently announced their move to Metal Blade Records, on which they released their first EP entitled The Parallax: Hypersleep Dialogues on April 12, 2011. Around the same time, Victory Records announced the release of a greatest hits album as a 3 disc set.

This is a band I have been listening to quite a bit lately. Well, more specifically the "Prequel to the Sequel" track quite a bit. Its a damn good song!

Prequel to the Sequel:

Check them out if you havent already, its like a hardcore Led Zepplin or the Death Metal version of Tool.
