Free Crap That Came In The Mail: Epic Overuse of the Word 'Epic'
I've long been weary of the perils of naming genres, because I hate overly wordy, ultimately meaningless distinctions like "acoustic-breakbeat-folktronica." But these are a special kind of silly. Epic folk metal? Could that possibly mean anything to anyone? "You know, I've never been all that into folk metal. But epic folk metal? Now you're talking!" "Epic doom metal" is even more amusing, of course, especially since most metal sounds plenty doom-y in the first place. Wacky.
The CDs, by the way are Silent Ruins by Isole (the epic doom metal) and As the Path Unfolds... by Crimfall (epic folk metal).
