Blessed Are You is crap. And the Something Wicked trilogy is decent but it doesn't have enough going for it to warrant it being so long.

So yeah, it's pretty terrible.

I just don't understand what an insubstantial jab at Burzum has to do with that album sucking shit.

Iced Earth are more pleasing to the ear than Burzum. Fact.

Do you even see the contradiction there?


But seriously, here's my rant about post-BO Iced Earth: They're like a metal band for kids. They're impressive if you are new and inexperienced in the realm of metal, and they sound "cool" if you don't understand how little is really going on in their music. That's probably why I liked them when I was in high school; they were one of the first "real" metal bands I got into. But eventually you've heard enough to see how little value, essence, or innovation most of Iced Earth's material possesses.

And you find Burzum more complex than Iced Earth?

Absolutely. I'm not saying Burzum is exactly high art (as some people will try to tell you), but no amount of Schaffer-chuggas, lackluster solos, or annoying overdramatic vocals could ever surpass the subtle awesomeness that Varg manages to accomplish with just a few notes.

Its fucking hilarious, really.
I haven't done that, have I?


Oh wait a minute, yes I did. When I said that listening to The Clash was the equivalent of listening to retards pick up instruments and you laughed in agreement. Then I said the same thing on here and you were all like "OMG!"

Damn, everyone's ganging up on him now.
