    this is not entirely related, but for some reason i would like information on New Era Productions, is anyone familiar with this label ? I read they are Blackmetal, somewhere else i read they support fascist bands. Can anyone enlighten me ?

    Hmmm... That's how I feel about Nightwish... I keep trying to give 'em a go, but can't get past the whole feeling of *Average*.

    Anyway, got the new Strapping Young Lad album last week. Album of the Year (so far). 45 minutes of sheer brutal insanity.
    I'll have to check that out. For me the new Desecration album "Process of Decay" is album of the year :)
    (So far...)

    Incidentally, for anyone in the Sheffield area on Saturday Desecration are playing with local band Extreme Maggot Infestation and Black Stone Brutality at the Cricketer's Arms (due to a fuck up with booking the Corporation. D'oh). Doors around 8, probably a few sheets to get in. Should rock to fuck.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Well... I like them because they remind me of the best bits of Tool, Pink Floyd, Maiden and other stuff I listened to while growing up with the stuff I'm into now (At The Gates, In Flames, et al).

    Not overrated by any means.


    Now Nightwish... They are proper *meh*

    I second that.

    Speaking of good metal, I can't wait for Meshuggah's "Catch 33" to come out.

    May I take this opportunity to mention this thread. Callisto are excellent, for anyone not familiar with them have a listen to Cold Stare on their site :o)

    Bah. Have you heard Nymphetamine? Its more like a dark evil heavy metal album than their psuedo black metal stuff of the past. Very good.

    :D

    Yes. It's shit. :)
    They've been shit for about five years. It might have started that time it took 10 weeks and a dozen people to make an album that a monkey and his cat could have recorded; but they've got far worse since then.

    I mean look at Vempire. They did that with one guitarist and it's a killer CD. Dusk + Cruelty were pretty good too. From Midian onwards is just shite. And what's with all the twee puns 'n' shit? They're not the Macc Lads :D

    But I digress... Their new album sucks. :)

    (As an interesting postscript, they were at a festival I was at last year. We were all walking about doin' the daffy duck impressions :D)

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Back from the SunnO))) gig. That was... different :I 50 minutes of earth shattering drone-doom. Stood next to one of the PA speakers and thank god I had really good ear plugs and even so, my ears are ringing. Still a bit worried, I might have internal bleedings caused by the massive wall of sound.

    Weird as fuck.

    Ah, let me guess... it leaked? I visited them yesterday in the studio and we talked about leaks in the promo process. They hated it too, but agreed it probably doesn't hurt them as much as it hurts, say, Metallica.

    I got the real promo from them too, btw. :) I like!

    I think they said mid May. I've known them for a long time, helped them with the site and even edited their "Cyanide Christ" video.

    We took some promo shots for their record company last week, which is pretty cool since it's the first time I'm going to get paid for it. \o/

    Glad to hear it. They're touring in April so see if you can catch them.

    Panopticon for album of the decade! :o)

    Other than that, a lot of new stuff seems a bit devrivative or just damn weird (since when has a metal band needed some bloke with a pair of record decks in it?!).
    Listening to the new Corrosion of Confirmity CD right now, "In the Arms of God". Check it out. They've got a jazz musician on the drums and it VERY much reminds me of the good old Sabbath-days. Not bad at all.

    Hell yes! I saw them a few months back with Visceral Bleeding and Master. (I think it was Visceral Bleeding, I can't remember).

    And they kicked arse.

    yer, metal.

    I been listening to Trivium and the new soilwork album.

    also Full blown chaos (like hatebreed and stampin ground, proper chugging) and Throwdown-haymaker are excellent metal albums.
