OK

I really want to do what Swordlord did with Moonsorrow, and get Ajattara here sometime within the next year. How do I go about doing that? Do I contact their "booking" agent and say "I am interested, please let me know how to go about doing this - what it would cost, availability, etc" ?

Has anyone here ever paid a band to come here from Europe?

Maybe I should harass Swordlord.

Anyway, if I was to get a plan and try to raise $$ to get Ajattara here, would anyone be up for helping with that?

* Please note that this list only covers the records I have listened to/reviewed this year; don't hate me for not having heard something brilliant. If there was a great record I'm ignorant of (I notice a definite lack of death and black metal here, which saddens me) please fill me in before January rolls around!

$13 I *think*. maybe $15.

Decapitated fucking RULES! And Vader's a really tight live band, although they have a new drummer after the passing of Doc, but I haven't seen/heard them since that happened. And Dew Scented is a decent thrash band along the lines of Defleshed if you're yet to hear them.
