04:50 - The Maratha Also, black powerfully blending with genres of death, drone, psychedelic, doom, sludge and so on. More or less, this past 2 years there has been a trend of experimentation in metal altogether.
04:44 - The Maratha The problem is that Sludge creepingly blends into heavy, doom, black and death. Look at Roadburn for instance.

According to their official website: "After three years despite all difficulties the album is fully ready, we shall share 3 of the 9 songs on the internet at most to fulfill the promise we had made to our friends and Kahtmayan's fans. Naturally the album will be fully distributed by a known publisher outside Iran, most probably. And we won't be able to share the whole album on the internet till then. The first song will be published in early 2013."
Actually you can hear/view some of their rehearsals here and here.
The recording quality is awful in rehearsals, but I like some special aspects of "Sacred Fire".
