I think it was October or November when I went over to a friend's place (Jill you rock) and a few of us were sitting around, and she put on Emilie Autumn's Opheliac and Laced and Unlaced albums. I thought - "this is awesome" and now I'm hooked! The Opheliac album is definitely my favorite, I listen to it all the time now (plus Abney Park's new album End of Days) How did I not know about her before?
She also showed me her book Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls. I love the concept and think it's beautifully illustrated. I'm trying to find a copy, but the official website says the original print is sold out. So I guess I'll just have to wait until the new run is available.
I'm also eagerly awaiting the upcoming album Fight Like a Girl (FLAG). It's supposed to be harder and more metalish (squeal)!
Is there anyone else who feels like they discovered something way after everyone else?
