I've just discovered a new band to geek over: Battlelore. Why can't America turn out bands like this? Probably because they're too interested in reality TV and American Idol, and think they're too cool to actually put that much thought into a look and persona. Is it any wonder I was a fan of bands like KISS and GWAR?

Yes, very D&D, very LotR. They sound a lot like Tristania, if you're curious. Of course, if you don't know them either, that won't help...but if you find you like one, you'll probably go for the other, as well. Two for the price of one, as it were.

RAD! Thanks, dude! :)

They remind me a lot of GWAR or Bolt Thrower... which is a good thing :)

Good ol' Bolt Thrower. How I miss them.

They rocked. I was listening to them a bit before I read your post (oddly enough).

I really like what I'm hearing of both the bands you listed... Gonna have to get some of them :)

I've got most of Tristania's albums, and they're pretty good (accidently introduced to them by 01flux). Battlelore, I just discovered tonight...gonna be hard to import the albums from Finland.

I found Battlelore quite easily through Amazon :)

(plopped into next order, 'Third Age of the Sun [LIMITED EDITION]' more specifically )
