Re: Which BG song has affected/affects you the most?

Skalds and Shadows is my go to song when i'm feeling depressed or down. The ending is especially terrific, and it's such an eloquently sung and intricately woven song in its rhyme and scheme, it's hard to not get sucked into it when you're in a bog, and it can work when you're happy or depressed, ma...

Re: Next news update will happen in

I'm guessing the Bard's must be fairly busy with their families.

But this is why I wish some bands should never spawn. Family is why Barlow isn't in a IE anymore, these bands need to understand that WE are their real family! :x

BG still tops it, after all these years and several mental growth spurts, it's crazy how some of their songs that I used to listen to as a teenager take new meaning as an adult. They are truly masters of depth. Old Elvenking is still very special to me, but their new stuff leaves me feeling so utter...

I disagree. While he may have been important to the band's sound, he certainly wasn't the essence of it. You state that the songwriting was based around his voice, whereas the reality is that the songwriting is wrapped around Sam and Herman's guitarplaying. It's a situation largely comparable to th...
