Underrated band but not my kind of thing really. I have a copy of Haven which is excellent if rarely played here nowdays, I have one of their other albums but can't even remember what its called. I don't think these guys are bad but wouldn't buy their albums or anything,
Personally I think there's a lot of rubbish bands that sound a bit like DT which is a shame for them but I'm sure they'll outlast them all.
it's not an attempt at mockery at all. 1337 means leet of course, but the whole elitism thing has been bandied about for yonks and I don't use it as a derogatory term. Some people think that elitism is a good thing and I have no problem with that. It's their choice. I like the fact that this forum has such a different take on metal from other boards I've seen.
This thread is fairly tongue-in-cheek, which if anything should demonstrate I'm big enough to laugh at myself as much as anyone else.
Mate, you can tell you've never played Quake III ;D
kthx /-/4xx(0)(0)/? !!!!1 etc. Leet speak is a total pain in the ass, but also quite funny in the annoying way that it can grow on one with repeated usage/reading. Then one has to explain to the next set of people that one has alienated by using it inappropriately. The cycle continues thus until the world is completely aware of leet speak.
In a manner akin to the UK rollout of broadband (which is still happening due to BT trying to think up ways to get new copper wire installed in Stornoway and the Faroe isles), this global rollout of 1337 is expected to reach the indigenous peoples of South America around 2029.
