Ancient Know How To Spell

Norwegian black metallers Ancient have issued the following statement regarding the song "Horroble" on their most recent CD, "Night Visit":

"After numerous unintelligent comments, made on certain reviews written by evidently unintelligent people about the title of the song 'Horroble', off Ancient's new album 'Night Visit', the band would like to communicate officially that the title is indeed a PLAY ON WORDS. It is a mix between the word 'horror' and the word 'horrible' and it is a concept about a horrorific attitude / state of mind. The lyrics will explain this. The band is very aware of the correct spelling of the word 'Horrible'. Sorry about this remark, but the band thought it was obvious. Evidently, for some people it isn't..."

The band's sixth album, "Night Visit" was released in June through Metal Blade Records. The follow-up to 2001's "Proxima Centauri" was recorded at Mirage and Alpha-Omega studios and was mixed at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (Hammerfall, In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, Spiritual Beggars, etc.). Mastering was done at Sterling Sound in New York City.

actually, either way ("a lot" or "alot") is acceptable in standard English now, though most prefer the separated version

The thing was highly obvious, but it was also highly LAME. Kind of like Ancient really. What do you expect from a black metal band with a guy named Jesus Christ! - Now, BEFORE you jump on me about MY name - My problem is that the exclaimation mark (or exclaimation point as I think you Americans call it) is not negotiable. It's Jesus Christ! at all times. Even mid sentence like that. It's just wrong. It's not black metal. It's gothic dinner theatre at best.
