ufff, being able to play different styles of metal is bad? i always saw that as a good thing!

That is why i apart of Tchort his bands am always interested in Hellhammer his bands too quite some different styles, that makes them great musicians !

Talking right then

ok first of all you are dissing dimmu borgir by calling them burger, second of all i appreciate that fact that people can play different genres of music but not if it is crap like this and i am here because i wanted to listen to their music and find out why they play girly chanting music with crap vocals that sounds worse than iron maiden. even their name is like black metal. i have nothing against soft core stuff like APC, HIM, nightwish etc but this is just crap so get off my case and go back to listening to whatever music you call this. i love the band members but not their music. rock on and R.I.P cheers guys :FIREdevil

Well, I dont mind that he have his opinion on the matter. Some like what we do, some dont. Fair enough. We "change" our music because we change/evolve as persons/individuals. We get new members who like different things, with different preferences and backgrounds, and that shows in the music. There is only one member left from the first album and as a musician, i wouldnt feel very flattered if i were still playing the same songs (more or less) today, 7 years later . We express ourselves through our music (at least thats the case with Green Carnation) and if we forced ourselves to write music of a certain style just to please you or any one else - That would be a sellout. But sure, the music is more accessable to most people as it is presented today, but that has also a lot to do with the fact that we started playing live shows and some of our approach to our music changed because of this. It just wouldnt work playing a live show if our material only consisted of 5 Light of day albums, so we mix our shows with long versus shorter songs. Doesnt mean that we put less effort into the song writing process of current material, but the basic fact is that our music reflects who we are, and we changed over the last 7 years hence our music change with us. So you can start wondering what the next album will be like because my head`s pretty messed up the last 6-8 months.. And no, i am not trying to "convert" you or defend ourselves and what we do, these are thoughts i have on the matter

Personnally... I think GC is way better then Satyricon, Emperor and other BM bands of the kind. I think the music focusses more on emotions and "prettyness" then on having a violent and aggresive sound. I used to listen to DM, some BM but the older I get, the less I like metal. Progressive, old rock and jazz are more interesting IMO cause its easier to really exploit all the complexity of music with these styles of music. So keep up the good work GC :)

Yeesh... HIM... worst band ever. You should be flogged for bringing them up.

What I don't understand is the mentality of someone who claims to love a band's members but goes to the band's message board purely to bag out the music. :bang:

I don't know if it's better than Emperor and Satyricon or not, it's pointless, but nowadays I find great music in bands of Black, Death and Viking metal. Like Asmegin, Solefald, Septic Flesh (R.I.P), it's not Jazz (Definitively!!! ), but I listen jazz too. It's all about the moment, you can´t live listening Black Metal or progressive only, but if you can you music world is toooo boring.

lol @ this thread

omg! i like Snickers better than M&Ms because there is more mass to the packaging omg Snickers also has caramel and peanuts... M&Ms SOMETIMES has ONE of those things, making it not as good, evne though they taste completely different

I don't think you even deserved an explanation, sir.
As a musician who advocates 'Evolutionary Black Metal' and the overall evolution of music... I would think it more humiliating to come out with a band that sounded like Dead of Winter or Tsjuder at this time.
Go find a Scum forum and make fun of Casey Chaos if you're so concerned about black metal purity... which I can't see a Dimmu Borgir and Satyricon caring all too much about. GC are black metal influence... but then again, so are Mortiis and Neptune Towers ;).
Don't like it? Don't listen, and don't bother the band and it's fans with your stupidity.
