Upon review of Xelandos Nafshir's posts I have come to the conclusion that he is a robot.

You beat me to it.

I started listening to a guy called Cas Haley, who was on America's Got Talent.  check it out:

better than sting imo.

"America's Got Talent" was probably the only sort of reality/stage performance/audition show I ever actually bothered watching, and yes, Cas Haley is awesome. Although that ventriloquist still deserved to win.

I heard The Offspring on the radio today in my art class, and almost punctured the eye on my sculpture because they've got a new song out. A few years ago they were all I would listen to.  ::)

I never really payed much attention to them back when they were really big, but one of my favourite radio stations started playing the Offspring on a regular basis a little while ago (mostly "Come Out and Play") and I'm starting to wonder why I didn't listen to them more before.


Does anyone here listen to Focus? They're pretty awesome.

Neck beard + yodeling + kickass music. Not to mention the bizarre facial expressions, that link was very worth the click.

Recently started listening to Tool. Me like.
Try A Perfect Circle. Same lead singer, but I like them more. Except their latest album sucked really bad.
"Baboy" is Filipino for pig.

When there is no more of art to discover, you know you're dead. And if you aren't, what the hell do you live for?

Do tell what you thought of the stuff once you've let it sunk in.
Well, I listened to 82.2% of the Sieges Even album, it seems about as far as it's gonna get. :( Besides the jumpiness due to incompletion it's super, really inspiring stuff. Also I take back my comment regarding Spiral Architect's vocals, I was just being a dumbass. Fountainhead and Conjuring Collapse are the best.

Also I picked up a few others since my last post, Cynic, Demilich, Athiest, Gorguts, Wintersun, couple others.

Wintersun aren't up to the rest of that lineup you mentioned.

If you need the last two tracks of the Sieges Even record uploaded I can give them to you. It's a shame to not listen to 'Straggler from Atlantis' as it is probably the most epic and emotional track on the record. Yes, epic, emotional technothrash. Worth it.

Cynic are widely celebrated for 'Focus', and I like it alright too. Perhaps you'd do well to check out their demos too.
Demilich are godly.
Atheist, especially 'Unquestionable Presence' rip.
Gorguts, be sure to withstand the weirdness of 'Obscura', it's worth it.

There is no shame in Coldplay. There's a handful of pop music that's well worth listening to and they lead the pack. ;D

That seems to be the general consensus. I do love Elements lots, though.

First album I heard from them actually. I'm already into that sort of thing but it's refreshing to hear it in a metal context.

Yeah.

That would be wonderful, if you could. <3
