Howdy people,

I'm from Turkey. I'm also from Darkon. Cool

I've been a long time member of the Prog Archives forums, for about 16 years -though my most recent account "Shadowyzard" there is relatively new-, but have discovered here only very recently.

I've been a metal fan since the very early '90s. I'm mostly into prog metal, but I can enjoy various other metal sub-genres too.

My favourite band is Symphony X.

Hoping to have fun here,

Yours viciously...

Özgür

Hi Özgür, welcome to the site!

It's strange how many ProgArchives members don't know of our existence. We see ourselves as complementing our sister site but seem to be invisible to most, which is a shame.

Prog metal is important to us too so hopefully you'll find plenty here to keep you informed and amused Big smile

Welcome to MMA Tongue.

I´m actually on a Symphony X review roll at the moment, so you may see some reviews from me in the coming weeks/months. Right now I´m listening to and reviewing Twilight in Olympus.

Welcome Özgür,

I too was a regular trawler of PA before I knew of the existence of MMA. I don't find myself on PA half as much now.

I'm sure you'll enjoy the site.

Welcome to MMA Özgür!

I'm also a big Symphony X fan - about time they had a new album out, it's been 6 year's since the last one!

Thank you, mates!

Paul, Symphony X should come up with a new album annytime soon, indeed. This is the longest break they have given. It is understandable though... They are quite a seasoned band.

Hi folks, and especially the admins,

I wanna change my username. Azelin Rex is a great character. I've recently read 2 books telling his story. But, I'm not evil, I guess. Also I have a real "unique nick" obsession. I couldn't get over it.

I wanna hang out here and be a prolific contributor. Are your powers enough to grant me a new username, or can I take another account with a different username? I promise this will be my ultimate.

Thanks!

Thanks! BTW, on Progarchives, this is not technically possible as of now. I was informed by an admin. If it is doable here, I want this username: Aensorcelar

If not doable, can I take a new account?

Thanks again!

^ Thanks Mike! Nice to see you here too, in darkness! Cool

I'll read your review with great interest! Though you seem to be using some really advanced vocabulary in your reviews on Prog Archives. Anyway, I'll use a dictionary, at worst.

Hi there!

I don't know much about metal in Turkey, but I did recently come across a Turkish punk band.



I don't understand any of it, but it sounds silly enough to appeal to me.Smile

Yeah sorry non-English speakers. I'm quite a nerd and quite educated both academically and independently. I just spew the words out of my head, i don't fuss about reviews at all. I simply write down my stream of consciousness and then do one edit of spelling, grammar and whatever. Unfortunately English has one of the largest vocabularies in the world. Hey, i feel the same way when i'm reading other languages which i've studied although i know almost nothing of Turkish!

@Vim Fuego - That Turkish punk band sounds... weird. Haha. First time hearing this.

@Mike: Yeah, English is quite an easy language to learn, but very hard to master as there are too many vocabulary in it. 5 times or so more than Turkish, as I know. My vocabulary range in English is around 20.000 words or so, as of now (it is constantly improving). I actually can read almost anything in English, including PHD level academical stuff... My problem with "your" English is that, I have to use dictionary for that more than occasionally to fully understand what you write. Anyway, I believe that challenges are good for the IQ and self-improvement/progression. So keep up the "advanced" work, I'd say. Wink

The only Turkish metal band I'm familiar with is Kaptan Kadavra who released their debut album earlier this year. While not mind blowing, I found it an enjoyable blend of several metal sub genres.

^ Kaptan Kadavra is quite known in Turkish metal domains too. Glad that they've attracted some attention abroad also. Thumbs Up

FYI, I've had my username changed to make it the same with mine with MMA's sister site PA. Some might say I haven't kept my promise, but I say that I transferred my nickname here. Or duplicated mysellf. Do you know some D&D spells like simulacrum or mirror image etc.? Cool

Thanks Adam for that, and for your understanding. Thumbs Up
