Re: Let's ACTUALLY listen to each other's music!

I recently mentioned it in another thread, but I'll link it here regardless. Agalloch's To Drown . It's fairly long and is very much post-rock-esque, so I wouldn't recommend it for those with relatively short attention spans/a disinterest in atmospheric & otherwise-not-immediately-catchy music. ...

Re: Favourite Songs/Albums of 2010

Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit This. I just love it. Its composition is unlike their previous albums, yet it subtly reminds me of all of them. Every song is great, and the band really covers some new territory. To Drown is definitely the product of the band's ongoing flirtation with post-rock sinc...

Uhh, some people like cheesy. I mean, consider the entire power metal genre. Also, considering that the OP listens to Metallica and is looking for christmas music in a metal subgenre, It's no stretch to assume that he doesn't mind cheese. It's not my cup of tea, however.

Source. Honestly, I never found Eberron very appealing.

Not that Greyhawk was much better, mind you. Faerun had its moments.
