  1. Yeah, it's not as good as Pelagial for me, but still epic. BTW, Caligula's Horse need to be on your radar and... I totally forgot to activate that discord link, are you able to re-invite me?

  2. Dude have you heard the new The Ocean album?

  3. Just watched the trailer. Not sure I'm ready

  4. Just as I hoped, full trailer looks like The Wicker Man meets Safe Haven.

  5. Yeah ha.

     

    I've used that old Taken clip a few times to show up how ridiculous so much editing is now

  6. Guess who's finally back.

     

     

    Hyped.

  7. Months after I leave...

  8. Dillinger finally announced a tour for you guys in AU/NZ

  9. My fiend had the translation of the original French version. So Lancelot is never, ever wrong. Especially when he decides to fight for some guy against Arthur, routs the army of Camelot and then gets the other king to surrender because he adores Lancelot so much.

  10. Ha! I do love it when knights defend bridges. So much put into something so small and pointless. Who needs to defend a kingdom when I can defend this bridge?! But then again I find most of the Arthur stories accidentally hilarious. Which version of Lancelot were you reading? I only really know Malory's Morte Darthur version well. I really need to get around to reading Chretien's original romance at some point. It's an amusingly dishonourable way for Lancelot to be introduced into the legend, forced to ride in a cart, causing everyone he meets to not take him seriously and dismiss him as a low born pretender rather than a real knight.

  11. Because you're one of two boardies who might've done, have you read Lancelot of the Lake? Because a backpacker friend was reading it on our trip around the Milford Sound, and read several passages out to me. We've concluded that Lancelot, as a French insertion into an English tale, might be the original Mary Sue. Also, a bafflingly large portion of the aristocracy seem to have dedicated themselves to stopping people from crossing bridges.

  12. Sounds promising. I read Bran saying it'll be rather dark

  13. Just read in an article that the new Mastodon will sound somewhat like Crack the Skye, whilst will share more of the melodic/poppy elements from TH and OMATS

  14. I feel they earn the level of drama, and Greg takes the mania to places where most vocalists can't reach

  15. Gotta say I love how schizophrenic this album is.
