23:05 - Zaphod I don't have a lot of criticism on the Dutch. I've only known a few Dutch people, and they were all very nice. And not greedy, which is the most often-used stereotype in Belgium.
23:01 - Erik M. Btw, say all you want about Dutch people. I'm very anti-nationalistic so honestly I have a lot of criticism on the Dutch as well. Self-centered, racist, greedy, cheapskates is what the Dutch are (I'm only the first thing though).
22:58 - Zaphod Of course it was Marcel, we go waaaaay back. He's like a brother to me.
22:57 - Erik M. Oh wait, I met him 3 times. Forgot about the Officum Triste gig in Tilburg last year. I also saw him at Dordrecht Doom Day II in May 2012, but he didn't know me yet, while I recognized him from MS. :P
22:53 - Erik M. Was that friend Marcel? I only met Marcel twice but the first time at Dordrecht Doom Day III he was shouting "The Netherlands!!!" at a band who referred to this country as "Holland". Hahaha.
22:49 - Erik M. Zaphod, my bad then. I didn't know that. I always find it funny we (the Dutch) make fun of you guys being dumb and all, while you beat us at "our" language most of the time on TV. :P
22:48 - Zaphod I had a Dutch friend once who kept getting annoyed at me doing exactly that :P

Dunno how this leaked so early, but here's the opening track, "Deadlock"!
Pretty awesome song I have to say!
I'm in agreement. Compared to their s/t, it's like they took Metal and added some more aggression to it. Granted, that is a very loose/unfair comparison, but all in all, the main point is that it hits really well.
Also, this is one of the few cases where I'm very pleased with Padden's vocals. It feels like a fresh breath of air since it fits the song... at least in my own opinion.
Yeah! Love the re-recordings of 21, Word Salad, and Brain Dance a lot. Somehow, Padden's voice fits these tracks extremely well. And Jeff's vocals on 21 is just killer, in my opinion. I think I like his vocals better here than on the original. I think the one I was the least satisfied with is Bloodbath, which I just couldn't see his voice fitting anyways. It's still an ok re-recording though.
