    I like having a new Greenleaf every couple years but would it hurt the swedes to maybe focus on one more Dozer album? It's been too long, way too long.

    Because once you surpass $20,000 in on-line sales and over 200 transactions the government sees you as an e-commerce and wants their cut. I sold over $42,000 metal cds last year, Uncle Sam is gonna have his hand extended out. He may be underestimating just how much I spend on metal too. With any luck he'll be pulling back a stump. If not, I'll gladly pay the man.

    ... at $20 per cd that's 4000 transactions

    How do you have the time to do this?

    Your first mistake is thinking people only buy one cd at a time. My shipping terms rewards those that load up, I use a ton of medium priority flat rate boxes, I can safely ship 32 cds in one of those. My Paypal stats show over %50 of my customers are return customers (because I'm fucking awesome), if paypal had a stat for more than one item purchased at a time I bet that is around %50 or more as well. I have guys that order $500-$800 worth at a time, others might buy one cd at $250, it adds up fast. As for time, it hasn't been easy. I no longer sell all week long like I was most of last year. I hit that dollar amount taking November and December off.

    Here's a couple orders from October 5th & 6th before I took the last part of the year off. Buyers identities protected for their privacy, for all I know one of them may be one of you.

    Real neat 90s metal band I came across recently. Pretty much unknown, maybe unless you listen to King's X or Galactic Cowboys (all three were part of a 90s Houston music scene and share similarities)

    They're probably the most popular of the Atomic Opera bands. That disc saw a US, Europe and Japanese release. These two Atomic Opera's never got beyond the demo stage. Nonetheless, all three pretty uncommon.

    Listening to the new Soen album now. Angry Metal Guy seemed to like it quite a bit. I give like a 75% chance that it's better than the Tool album

    True. After the third Opeth album came out and they were metal's new darlings people were lining up on AOL chat & message boards claiming Martin was a top metal drummer all time. It pissed me off back then and it continues to fill me with hate after all these years.

    I'd guess AOL chat came about sometime after '96 based on where I was living at that time. There'd be about 10 metalheads in there at one time on a good day. There was also these things I believe were called Newsgroups. We mostly used it to spam our trade lists.

    Why are most metal videos made like this now? It must be really easy to make or something, even the main metal labels all do the same thing now. Glad they aren't straining themselves having to put some thought or effort into the video.

    I think I'd prefer just a still shot of the album artwork. Not bad for that new age tech death style. I wonder if they know their band name is also a popular steroid.

    Shocked to see an official video for this. I liked their first three albums but this one took a wrong turn. Disappointed in the lack of lesbian action.

    Do any of you listen to the Sword?

    They remind me mostly of Black Sabbath. Saw them in concert a few years ago.

    Apparently they played a show at some 50 person bar with Scott Kelly from Neurosis. That would have been tight
