Searching the best server!

Hi doomsters!

I tried to work with Megaupload today, but I found some problems with the files "temporarily Unavailable", I tried up to 3 times to download my files, finally with success. This site is less restricted that Rapidshare, but has many restrictions if you are "no membership", but if you are free member can have some advantages, in the hours with less traffic you can download many files in few hours, without "the famous" 15 waiting time minutes between downloads!

Then, I decided work with Rapidshare and Megaupload, the more awaited albums will be uploaded to both servers at the same time, the old material and the unknown bands will be uploaded only to one server. You choose Rapidshare or Megaupload for these bands!

I not use Mediafire, Sharebee, or other server for personal reasons. I want the total control of my files without problems, allowed only in warranted servers like Rapidshare and Megaupload.

I try to improve the service of the Blog and soon I hope to have good news and launch new projects... Thanks for the comments and ideas!



Hola doomsters!

Tratè de trabajar con Megaupload hoy, pero encontrè algunos problemas con los archivos "temporalmente desactivados", intentè hasta 3 veces descargar mis archivos, finalmente con èxito. Este sitio es menos restringido que Rapidshare, pero tiene muchas restricciones si tu no eres miembro, pero si eres miembro con suscripcion gratuita, puedes tener algunas ventajas en las horas de menor trafico, puedes descargar muchos archivos en pocas horas, sin los 15 famosos minutos de espera entre descargas.

Entonces decidi trabajar con Rapidshare y Megaupload, los mas esperados albumes seràn subidos a ambos servidores al mismo tiempo, el material antiguo y las bandas desconocidas seràn subidas solo a un servidor. Tu elige Rapidshare o Megaupload para estas bandas!

No uso Mediafire o Sharebee por razones personales. Yo quiero el control total de mis archivos sin problemas, algo permitido solo en servidores garantizados como Rapidshare o Megaupload.

Intento mejorar el servicio del Blog y pronto espero tener buenas noticias y poder lanzar nuevos proyectos... Gracias por todos los comentarios e ideas!


Now only Megaupload!

Hi doomsters!

Now my Blog only will work with Megaupload, all the new files will be uploaded to this server. I read all your mails and I seeing the bad service from Rapidshare, I decided make the change. In the next months I will try reupload all the old files to Megaupload.

I hope you are happy with these news and enjoy the posts in your doomed Blog!

doomed greetings,

The Morningside - Moving Crosscurrent of Time (2009) Official Release

Genre : Melodic Doom Death
Country : Russia

This is the second album from 'The Morningside'. They play Doom Death with melodic Riffs, awesome melodies, acoustic passages, great atmosphere, and semi-screamed vocals. Not confuse this album with the Demo released in March 2009, many of these songs have different playing time.

Hanging Garden - TEOTWAWKI (2009)

Genre : Melodic Gothic Doom Death
Country : Finland

This is the second release of the band. In this album they play Melodic Doom Death with Gothic influences, crushing guitars, melancholic passages, mid tempo, rhythm changes, and aggressive moments. For me the sound is a bit modern in this album, the rhythm is more fast, but the songs are interesting.
Highly recommended for fans of this genre!
