[quote]Synopsis: Abara is set in a dystopian world. The story revolves around creatures known as Gaunas, those who can shape bone like armor and weaponry around themselves by transforming. The transformation begins around the spine and then shapes layered armor. The story focuses on one such Gauna known as Kudou Denji, though he uses Itou Denji as a fake name earlier.[/quote]
I love the artwork in Abara, so beautiful yet shocking and grotesque. The fight scenes remind me of Bleach, since the Gaunas and the Hollows look so much alike. It's too bad it's only 2 volumes long, this could've been something great.

I [B]LOVE[/B] Power Metal. I'm a big fan of acts such as [B]Rhapsody of Fire[/B] and [B]Blind Guardian.[/B] I love the epic feeling in each song, and the guitar solos are awesome as well. My top bands are all Japanese however:

Seriously, Brown Recluse bites aren't something to take lightly of. I did a research report on it and my science teacher's boyfriend had been bitten by one. He came to class and showed the "scar" (more like a pit) of the bite.
Whoa, what a surprise o_o. I was going through my Final Fantasy collection, I've beaten FF(GBA version mind you) as all White Mages, and since i can't find my FF7 disk, I had to resort playing FF8.
I've taken up the No-Level challenge and so far, it's easy peasy. I basically abuse everything thats available to me. I play Triple Triad as much as possible to get good junction/items/blue magic and used Seifer to level up my GF since [spoiler]he's not technically a real member of the party so you can level him up as you want[/spoiler].
I've spent 9 hours, I'm just learning skills for Diablos and Siren so I can continue building my magic collection.
[quote name='sunsetjenn]Has anyone heard these guys before? They are from Japan and are starting to branch out with a scheduled US tour. Their myspace page at [url]www.myspace.com/officialdirengrey[/url] had some tracks if you wanted to have a listen. My coworker at UMGD and me personally really like their instrumentals but that's just us. Anyways feel free to let me know what you think and if you like em enough their new cd is on sale at fye for about 10 bucks ([url]http://shop.fye.com/product.aspx?sku=203530015&loc=50244[/url']).[/quote]
Aye, Deg is a great band, however I'm not fond of thier latest work. It's too screamo; I think this is Deg's way of trying to be mainstream in the U.S.
If you like Deg, there's plenty of bands just like them in the first post i made.
The only brutal metal vocalists that I respect are [b]Lord Worm[/b] of Cryptopsy (the 30 second scream on the song [b]Open Face Surgery[/b] is really awesome), [b]Julien Truchan[/b] of Benighted (Can perform both Death and Black Metal growls), and [b]Nergal[/b] of Behemoth (again, polyphonic). Everyone else sounds the same, which is the main problem about Death Metal, everything sounds the same, parts are sped up to make it sound different
I prefer melodic and deep singing such as [b]Juka[/b] of Moi Dix Mois and recently HAZAKI grace project and [b]Yama-B[/b] of Galneryus.
