  1. this and broski's vlog could be the best thing to happen to gnr forums in a long time. go for it nate kick some ass!
  2. blind guardian- beyond the red mirror napalm death- apex predator -easy meat nightwish- endless forms most beautiful enslaved- in times ensiferum- one man army midnight odyssey- shards of silver fade(new double album ) wintersun- time II(who the fuck knows) slayer- tba black sabbath- tba venom- from the very depths(very low expectations) witherscape- tba king diamond- tba paradise lost- the plague within avatarium- tba moonspell- extinct dimmu borgir-tba thulcandra-ascension lost carach angren- this is no fairytale im sure there will be a shit load more.
  3. im not familiar with james bond movies but if the name "james bond" is just a code name for a bunch of agents i really see no problem with a black guy playing him. i know there has also been talk of certain comic characters changing skin color as well. if it works in the story say for instance the original captain america dies and his black protoge takes over as the "new" captain america that is no problem. as for the OP quesiton, it is fucking retarded and doesnt deserve an answer.
  4. the best was the justin bieber thread(thanks nate) watching gnr fans turn into a bunch of tween bieber fans was hilarious and sad all at the same time.
  5. definitely agree with this. the thing ozzy had(even though i cannot stand her) was sharon, if axl had his equivalent of sharon he might have made it. ozzy was fucked up 24/7 drinking doing drugs and sharon basically kicked him in the ass and told him he was fucking up and ruining his talent where as axl has basically has had an enabler that just tells him what he wants to hear and made him somewhat docile just to do tour after tour to make her and her family money. if sharon was like that ozzy would basically would have flamed out and either be dead or washed up doing old sabbath songs in some club somewhere.
  6. i like iommi and randy a lot but i just like iommi's riffs better even though randy was no slouch when it came to riffs,like ragnar said i like iommis dark, thick crushing riff style the best. as for songs i think both are vastly overplayed, they are classics no doubt but still sick to death of hearing them if i had to choose i would slightly pick crazy train but group vs group sabbath destroys ozzy solo any day of the week, its not even close.
  7. the last 4 minutes of this song are just amazing. you get a beautiful melody with piano and violin then all of a sudden bam a sledgehammer to the face
  8. i will take a week, i think i can pick an album most would like
  9. jojen really wasnt random. he was the son of howland who was ned starks best friend and only survivor of the fight at the tower of joy. howland sent jojen and meera to winterfell. as for bran he doesnt annoy me in the books as much as the show, plus i think the payoff beyond the wall is pretty cool and has a couple of cool scenes that would play well on tv if they would bring back characters and had an actor for bran that could act.
  10. i think the timing of them coming into the show fucked them up IMO. i really like the story of the knight of laughing tree.
  11. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUjUIP2ugG4 that awesome riff kicks into that badass bass line
  12. last i heard jari wanted to start a crowd funding campaign to build a studio. nuclear blast and jari went back and forth over it where jari said nuclear blast didnt want to do it since they wouldnt make as much money off the album and nuclear blast said they wanted to work on jari with the album but didnt think crowdfunding was the way to go, then jari said him and nuclear blast came to an agreement and would take facebook likes as an indicator of interest in the crowdfunding and after that he would announced the results and begin the crowd funding campaign. that was two months ago(roughly) nothing came from it. i basically posted on his facebook that it was a bit much and dozens of other bands can create complex good sounding albums(i referenced appalachian winter) my post was then deleted and then jari a day or two after went on about not releasing music if he cant fulfill his vision and how he will not water it down. so where it stands now is i have no fucking clue im pretty much in the same boat with wintersun as gnr if they ever release something i will be all over it day one, but man its just kind of ridiculous. i have never seen anyone complain about nuclear blast in this way. they paid him the money to make time it was jari's decision to split the album in two and created another headache along the way. So, basically, Jari is Metal`s Axl right ? Time is rad by the way. he is definitely the axl of metal but the big difference being i think jari still has the passion to make music. he is just a perfectionist in the worst way, he has what he wants to do but it takes him forever to do it which is kind of weird since like axl in his early days jari was releasing all kinds of stuff with ensiferum, wintersun, arthemesia and in immemorial where he wrote 5 songs one of which was a more melodic black metal version of sadness and hate found on the first wintersun album. somewhere after the first wintersun album all the problems started. i dont know if the concept he had of the album time(and subsequently time II) was just too much pressure and it kind of just led him to make all kinds of excuses or what is going on. time I is a damn good album i like the debut slightly better but time I was a worthy follow up and if the way of the fire is any indication time II could be even better. i have no doubt we will hear it eventually and jari has said he has ideas for other albums i just hope it may be a slightly stripped back concept so it wont take as much time or pressure to release. also another side note i dont know if it is a good sign or not but the bands drummer kai hahto just signed on to drum for nightwish who has a new album coming out early 2015, he is also the drummer for swallow the sun who are working on a new album for 2015, and he is also drumming for trees of eternity who are supposed to be working on a debut album for 2015, seems like something is going to have to give at some point.

  14. is that about king arthur? i have heard of it but never read it.
  15. i havent read it yet but i will soon, my younger brother in florida bought it for me for christmas, so i should be getting it soon. i have heard a lot of mixed things as well which worries me a bit to be honest. i do love the dunk and egg novels by martin though those are really interesting to get some backstory on some of of the families. it takes place about 100 years before ASOIAF. Ir was written by the owners of ASOIAF fan forum in consultation with Martin I don`t intend to read it. I will read the Dunk And Egg novels for sure. Fantasy never has been my favourite genre but Georgie dragged me in, damn the bugger. you might also want to check out "the chronicles of black company" it is fantasy but in the vein of martin where the world is much more gritty and dark. the book series follows a company of mercenaries, the book series spans about 4 decades of this groups 500 years of existence. a lot of death and chaos ensues.

  17. good to hear. AFFC is my second favorite i just love the political intrigue of the book. from listening to people and reading online posts this book is the most divisive of the series. its either you hate it or love it and there is really no middle ground.
  18. awesome seeing nate and broski doing well.
  19. never been to mexico even though i always wanted to, i have been to miami before and that was cool, only problem is my high school level spanish sucks but i learned charades and hand gestures breaks through any language barrier
