Er, Hei?  
Is anyone out there? I can't help but feel this community is a little bit dead. Anyone want to talk?

(hahaha I exceeded the maximum word count, so here's the rest)

Ja, I don't even remember how I came across them, but all I recall is searching them on youtube, seeing Helge in his gas mask playing his organ on a tortured landscape whilst creeping the camera, and me going "THESE ARE MY KIND OF PEOPLE!" Obviously, I'm talking Evig Pint XP Then, after that- as I always do with anything I even remotely like, because i am a VERY obsessive person- I did some digging, watched everything there was on every media front, learned all there is to know about each and every member of the band, and... well, here I am now and I never want to go back XD I mean, I was strange before, but these guys managed to truly portray me; who I am, and how I see the world. I never thought it would be possible, until they came along, to perfectly explain myself and how I function. I do know that sounds ridiculous, but really, it's true.

Bring the revolution! Resistansen!

I adore that they sing in their own language- and not only that, but their own dialect! That's a huge step in the name of the music industry. A breath of fresh air in a world so consumed by the need to conform. As a writer, the first thing I look for in a band is the quality of their lyrics, and seriously, when I began listening to Kaizers, Janove's (and Geir's) song-writing blew me away. The emotion he contains within even the most poorly translated of words is enough to cripple you emotionally. On top of it is the sound, of course, which stands second to none. Organ, banjo, upright bass (as a Cellist I relish this detail) and every underrated instrument is represented and empowered by what these men are doing, what they're accomplishing. And the cherry on top is the brilliance of their live performances. I prefer almost every single song they have live to the recording. And that says something when the recording is also a live studio recording. In conclusion, these men have taken every aspect I check for bands I listen to (writing their own lyrics and those lyrics being good; fantastic live, as in actually playing live and being good) and have gone far beyond those expectations, surpassing the call of duty.

Oh, be sure that it is. I've found my niche, and my life feels complete! ALmost. I have to see a concert before that actually happens! :P

I'm glad you agree. Music is also my life, one of the most important things to me, at the top of my values. When I come across someone who feels the same, well, it means a lot to me.

I wish I spoke a different language instead of being born with English. I mean, yes, it's the most adaptable and prevalent language in our day, but it's so boring! I feel mundane just speaking it sometimes. I feel this half of the time, actually, because the other half is stuck in Lit-geek mode, fawning over any kind of historical text I can find. XD
