As for Damnation
, it was more focused on the expression of emotion than experimentation.
Did you hear any Soilwork albums yet, by the way?
Yeah, I've listened to some tracks on spotify. As I was going through, I actually recognized quite a few from my college days. One of my best friends was a huge metal head, and introduced me to a lot of stuff in a short time. Hard to remember them all. Lol. I got sidetracked by remembering other bands we listened to at the time, like Himsa, Shadows Fall, Unearth and bodom, and took a trip down memory lame. I'll have to go back, as they were sounding pretty good, and I'll have more time to explore their discography.
