22:59 - !J.O.O.E.! Interesting. BTC draws a lot of influence from Mexican culture (might be some bands from there too). Will have to look into that movement / scene.
22:58 - 3rdWorld @Red Maybe the ones who can write a solid record I guess instead of writing a good opener and then stuffing the rest of the album with fillers.
22:57 - moonflash Apparently this underground black metal circle buisness is a thing, I discovered a similar label from Mexico, need to look into it further though. [link]
22:53 - Redn1ght How does anyone dare to release an album with shitty songs at the start staring at your face? :p
22:52 - !J.O.O.E.! Btw, I usually update this thread whenever something new from the group pops up [link]
22:49 - !J.O.O.E.! Yeah as comps go it's one of the best I've heard. The first 3 tracks aren't great but the rest are gold.
22:49 - 3rdWorld @Joe That seems to be a really interesting comp from Crepusculo negro. Of course I should've seen it coming, its the label that Arizmenda is on. Browsing music through labels is really fun.
Another great musician leaves us. Almah has posted a message on their website revealing that their former guitarist Paulo Schroeber has passed away. He was in the band for four years and participated in two albums with Almah. Schroeber was only 40 years-old and was waiting for a heart transplant.

Guitarist Paulo Schroeber has been forced to part ways with Brazilian heavy metallers Almah due to health problems. Band vocalist Edu Falaschi posted the following on the band's MySpace page: "Dear Almah friends and fans! I think many of you already know about health problems that our brother, partner and member of the band, Paulo Schroeber, has recently faced. Due to these problems we had to call another guitarist to replace him at the latest Almah shows during Motion tour, but we always hoped that Paulo would be with us again very soon."
Finnish metallers Kalmah have issued the following update on their official website:
"After inspiring hunting season Kalmah has found new keyboard player. We welcome Swamplord Veli-Matti Kananen (One Morning Left) on board! Velski has already played session gigs with us in Russia and Switzerland so we knew his skills and most of all his state of mindlessness.
We have started to write material for next album and so far we have 4 songs on the way - fast and fucked. New video will be shot next summer with mosquitos and Finnish swamp soil. Song for the video has already been chosen. Studio sessions will take place at the end of this year."
