Sentenced - Amok+Life & Death (was a special edition)

and there was an offer in a shop here, on some cds there was a note: get 4 pay 3, and you could take only those which had this note, the other cds aren't part of the offer. Every cd with note costs 8€. So I asked a friend of mine if she needs something and both of us paid together.

I got:
1.Blind Guardian - Somewhere far beyond (remastered)
2.Blind Guardian - The forgotten tales (remastered)
3.Apocalyptica - Inquisition Symphony


and the friend of mine wanted to have:
Van Halen Best of Album

So I paid 18€ (for the offer things) + 13€ for Amok
and my friend 6€ for Van Halen and we have 5 CDs for 37€ :) :) :)

Serenity - Words Untold & Dreams Unlived
Hmm, a little bit average, but really nice :D

@MME: Have you got any other Stratoalbum than Elements?

Nope, why do you ask? I listen many other songs with youtube playlist, but I haven't got any other albums. Since I bought Elements, you can't buy ANY stratoalbums anymore here. So I got the last one I suppose and they didn't order some new Elements let alone other albums since August.
And unfortunately I neither had the time nor the money to go to Nürnberg just for the sake of buying CDs...I would know lots which I would like to buy (more Sentenced: bought all albums they sell in my town...want to have The Cold White Light;Teräsbetoni - Vaadimme Metallia;Sonata Arctica - Winterhearts Guilt; Iced Earth - The Glorious Burden; Stratovarius - Visions first of all... ...)
Well, I think I once mentioned that I didn't like buying CDs in the internet for once I paid and did not receive.
So I think I will buy the things I get here (there are some CDs which I also like...Metallica, Rise Against, Hypocrisy, Iron Maiden), so I will buy that stuff until I get to Nürnberg or Munich or something anyway, to visit someone or sth like that.

Sentenced - Down

I am very glad to see more and more Sentenced albums in our shop. When I went there first too look for them, there were just two or three, suppose two, and I bought one (Frozen), when I went there next time, there were: Amok, Frozen and Crimson...AND Buried Alive live CD ^_^ so I was happy and bought that, then I bought the other two ones and as I returned yesterday, there was also Down ^^ So I bought it at once for there will appear more and more of them in this tiny shoppy shoppy :)

I got to Nürnberg today, and that's what I brought (you can't buy one of them here ^_^)

Sentenced - North From Here
Sentenced - Shadows From the Past
Sentenced - The Cold White Light

(If I had also bought Funeral Album I suppose I would have all of them now, but I don't know, maybe there are some others which I don't know)
Iron Maiden - The X Factor
(no more borrowing from the friend of mine ^^)
Iron Maiden - A Matter of Live and Death limited Edition
(wonder what I shall do with my normal version of this album now :roll: )

Well...I also looked for Strato albums but there was just Elements pt 1 and that didn't bring me further on, so I chose other ones, which was heavy enough to do. There were many I liked ^^

Helloween - Gambling With The Devil 2CD ltd. edition
Despite one or two lesser tracks, it's indeed one of the greatest Deris-era albums. Kill It might just be the greatest song they've done in a decade. 8)

Also a sort of box-set from Fates Warning including:
-Inside Out
-A Pleasant Shade Of Gray
-Disconnected

Candlemass - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus

Does the name sound strange (to the point of cheesy) or is it just me? Nonetheless, an amazing album.

well...non necesse est,
If you use words with the same gender but not the same group...öhm, how was this called...declination or something, so some go with -is in the end and others with us, a, um etc, it's not always the same ending. *g
But I think if you have words which do not exist in latin like doomicus you have to use the -us thing that everyone can see it's latin :lol:
But...why do they make their words latin at all? *g

This isn't the last album I got, but I just rediscovered it.

It's a sin to miss this album.

Oh for the love of... "Epicus Doomicus Metallicus" isn't supposed to be correct latin. It's funny, it certainly made me smile when I heard the name for the first time. :)

If you like Candlemass, get the album "Nightfall" next if you already haven't. Great stuff.

@ Mormegil: Jop, like Candlemass, but there are really many CD which are listed on the "buy next" list, so Candlemass is a bit queued because I just need one CD (Funeral Album) to complete my Sentenced collection and after that (or maybe before, I'm not sure *g*) have to buy Dance of Death Maiden album, so afterwards I can think of other albums. But first of all I owe 13€ to my mother ^^" ^^" ^^"

@stratovana:
Ui, Unia is funny, but imo one has to listen to it a few times until one likes it, because it's different from the first ones

At The Gallows End is great, but I prefer Bewitched and especially The Well Of Souls. :wink:

That, of course, is one of the best bands on this planet. Thom York is one of the best singers around, although a lot of people hate his guts. I can see why, but couldn't disagree more.

I got this album because I like Radiohead. But this new album :? ...I don't know what to think about it :roll:. Maybe when I listen to it later again, I'll change my opinion, but now I think it's really miserable...

I think it's quite good. I think this is their listener-friendliest album to date. But it usually takes a while for their albums to really sink in, so give it another try. House of Cards is such a beautiful track... :music:

The last album I got was the Nightwish'es Dark Passion Play, and thursday night I was priviledged to go to Orlando to see the best band in Finland perform. It was by far one of the best concerts I have ever seen and can't wait till they return.

Guns 'N Roses - Apetite for destruction

So I'm only a couple of decades late... no biggie...

And I preordered Helloween's Gamlbing with the Devil (I just downloaded to hear it NOW, but I am paying for the special edition)
