I haven't bought CDs in a while. With my Christmas money, I splurged on:
Therion - Vovin
Behemoth - Zos Kia Cultus
Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
Enslaved - Below the Lights
Avantasia - The Metal Opera Part II
Opeth - Ghost Reveries
Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors

Symphony X ~ Paradise Lost

Uugghh! They packaged it in one of those annoying cardboard digipaks which looks kind of cool but is actually flimsey as hell. I haven't gotten a chance to listen to the CD yet, and I'm sure it's awesome, but the packaging really bothers me.

Opeth - damnation (but i didnt like this band lol )
Damnation and Still Life are two of my all time favorites, not just by Opeth but by any band. Excellent purchase, in other words.

I've been listening to this and I'm not digging it that much. Too much clutter, not enough direction.

The only thing I don't like about Edguy is that Tobias Sammet sounds very much like Bruce Dickinson except for the amount of tremolo he uses.

...oh boy, I know I'm going to get slammed for saying that.

Check out Vain Glory Opera. Hansi does some cool guest vocals on one of the songs. According to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edguy#Discography Kingdom of Madness was their second album.

I got mine from a seller on ebay. Though it may partly be my own inexperience with celtic folk metal, I was blown away by Spirit. Finally, a kickass and diverse folk metal band that doesn't fit inside the typical 'viking/norse folk' mold. I'll definitely have to check out Ven, thanks for the rec.

Just ordered Satyricon's "Dark Medieval Times"...I really have a problem with controlling my impulse buying...then again, I've immensely enjoyed almost all the CDs I've bought recently. You won't be dissapointed. Unless you've already heard the album, and I just misread. Definitely am enjoying it. ...

or maybe you didn't count Forgotten Tales.. idk... But you should really buy "Live". It's simply amazing! I don't think Live is so great. The band can't come close to replicating the choral power on their studio albums using just the audience as backing vocalists (they really need to tour with an a...
